i love mark okay.

i was looking up the triplets mention at the comic con panel, cause i remembered jensen getting awkward, but even better, jensen’s talking about the karaoke and dancing when mark mentions the triplets,…

oh god why would you want cas to punch dean in the face the first time they are meeting up since last season (or how about at all) like do you see how twisted that is?? fuck at least tag it as romanticized violence so I don’t have to see it

reasons why you shouldn’t just send actors other people’s fanart without credit on twitter:

  • it’s not yours
  • you don’t even know if the artist was comfortable with having their art shown to the actors in the first place
  • if they did they could’ve done it themselves and be properly credited for their work
  • if the actor retweets/responds to your tweet without credit more people will see it and repost it without credit
  • it’s disrespectful to the artist

so next time you wanna save a fanart you saw on tumblr and tweet it to an actor you stop, think about it, and don’t fucking do it

Hi, I saw your donation drive on AO3, and I'm wondering what the money is for, exactly? $70,000 seems like a /lot/ of money. Is there somewhere I can see a list of intended purposes? Thank you! 




70,000 USD does seem like a lot, which is why many of our users may be surprised to find out that in 2015, the OTW will need 75,000 USD just to replace old servers and expand capacity! The OTW’s annual budget for 2014 is 221,863.44 USD, and 70% of that goes directly to servers, collation, and staff development for AO3. The remaining 30% of our 2014 budget funds Fanlore, Legal Advocacy, Open Doors, and Transformative Works and Cultures; covers administrative costs; allows for outreach and membership development (such as our thank you gifts and shipping); and provides opportunities for professional development and training for personnel. All of these things help the OTW protect and celebrate fans and fan culture.

I find it amazing that people think that’s a lot of money to ask. It’s incredibly expensive to fund such heavily used and non ad supported websites, and that before anyone even gets paid for their work. I am definitely donating what I can to this drive, and I hope if you have a few dollars spare and benefit from Archive of Our Own, or any of their projects you will consider dona ting as well.

We currently have 16365 fandoms, 418361 registered users, and 1330541 works. (x)

And it’s free of advertising, it’s non-commercial, it’s our haven and we can be certain that our fanworks don’t get banned or deleted or censored. AO3 has given a multinational fandom a platform, and, with the OfTW, a voice. So if you can spare a few dollars, do it!
