Hey I can appreciate that you don't like Cronus or other characters and that you have opinions about them, but could you please keep them out of the tags? We go there to see art and cool head canons, not exaggerated character critiques. I'm not asking you to change your mind about the characters, just to keep those posts out of the tags please.

No. Stop asking.

It really is a stupid question. “Please don’t tag posts about X as being about X.”

Please consider looking in a tag called “#cronus sycophants only”

You think that’s bad? Someone just showed me some shit from their blog:

no really tho

but there’s more and it’s even better

Literally hit people who have headcanons where Cronus isn’t a great guy and a glamorous rockstar wizard traced from concert photos.

But what’s the next thing on the blog?

not an ounce of self-awareness.

hey guys change of plan, a bunch of catty tags have alerted me to the fact that I literally control you all.

well i can’t say i’m not flattered to find this out, but i wish i had known sooner. the douchebag cronus argument i could easily have won on my own merit rather than by raising an army, and i’d rather use my fandom power to propagate actually implausible ideas instead.

guys. let’s make Pink World go viral.

i have decided that you agree with me and that the new thing is indeed Planet P Project’s 1984 prog-rock science fiction rock opera about a small child becoming omnipotent and getting exploited as a figurehead for a dystopian fascist regime in the ruins of Captain Trips-ravaged America.

you are happy with my choices, and will later remember this post as the moment your life gained true meaning.

i’m so glad for all of us.

Iiii still don’t understand why Tumblr insists on having tags=communities, instead of tags=posts about the subject…

I think that was just a fandom community etiquette thing that no one had the good sense to stomp out while it was still growing, and now new people think it’s part of the actual site rules because it’s been screeched at them whenever they “TAG THEIR HATE” for years.

Tumblr culture is so fucking ridiculous. Crush it wherever ethical.

hahaha

So, basically: They can’t conceive of argumentation as a form of persuasion, only status. Heh.

pretty much. but this person thinks they are cronus so we should stop making fun of cronus/them for being horrible. i will cease to refer to facts about cronus/them that make cronus/them look bad, and instead pretend that he is a magical rock star, which is an interpretation of the character that belongs on the tags because it is accurate and by no means an even greater insult to the Ampora name

BOYS WILL BE BOYS

I feel a bit better about myself with you calling out that Cronus fan because when they first made that post I asked them why they thought people who said Cronus exhibited non-con behavior was bad characterization and they told be non-con meant rape and said those who thought he was non-con were stupid. I didn't get an answer to the question I asked and was made to feel bad.

Wow, that blogger has Problems.

And just between you and me, I have always said that Cronus is a fantastic character. Look how much emotion his very mention generates on blogs, compared to characters who have appeared in more than like 4 panels. He never even had to kill anyone to earn his place as the Warren Mears of the Homestuckverse. Mediocre, impotent, petulant evil is my favorite flavor because it takes guts to write a character with that kind of capacity for cruelty, and all that prevents them from embracing it is… mundane shit. Damn.

It’s not hate to draw the line at pretending part of a character doesn’t exist just so that he can be more kawaii for people’s fanfictions, that’s distorted thinking to let douchebags off the hook.

But what do i know, I apparently have FANDOM POWER and can make people agree with me even when I am wrong. 

you are a seriously dense motherfucker

Then you’re just going to have to spell it out for me, cookiepants ::::) 

over/under on how many of the cronus stan’s other friends will show up here before midnight? i just remembered it’s a weekend and no one has bedtime so let’s get crazy and make it 1 am.

jeez if i’d known you guys were coming i would have put out wank rags.

Wow. I ask you something reasonable and you just. Wow. Why am I not surprised. Either you don’t understand that you’re making people feel bad for liking Cronus or you know and don’t care and are actually worse than you think Cronus is. That’s pretty sad. And you try to tell me I have no self-awareness? Pretty stupid of you.

HAHA WOW WHAT THE FUCK? You two are absolutely ridiculous. You have no idea who Ray is or what he’s advocated for with Cronus. Hell, what so many of us constantly repeat because people like you are so thick-headed it’s pathetic. You literally have no idea how self-aware he is. 

I literally don’t care about your turdy relationships tho :o

It’s obviously apparent you’re not okay with someone pointing out you did a douchebag kind of thing what with tagging hate, which is a heavily advocated thing for the fandom side of tumblr, not just with cronus.

fart

People love going into tags to see things about a character they like and would prefer not to see hatred, especially when that hatred never has any solid back-up, making it a pointless piece of blabber.

fart

It’s not hard to type ‘hate’ into the tag to make it ‘cronus hate’. Even when someone is asking kindly for you to do so, you still bite back. It’s the sensible and respectful thing to do towards fellow human beings to tag hate as HATE. If people can tag rape as rape or tag gore as gore, you can tag hate as hate.

poot

Also I find it funny you highlighted Ray’s ‘consent’ picture. Do you have any reason for doing that? Let me rephrase that, any GOOD reason for that? 

BRRRRRAAAPPPPP

No. Stop asking.

Haha wow this is just funny though. Claiming a self-aware person is not self-aware simply because you saw a few posts you may have disagreed with. Haha wow.

brb lighting a match

what exactly did you post that made necromancercronus so upset?? were you blatantly hating on the character or???

I posted about how well-crafted Cronus Ampora is as a character in the tags, but I didn’t pretend he wasn’t a skeevy predator.

Then someone who uses his name as their own and identifies with him and traces pictures of him as a rockstar wizard and makes up playlists for how awesome he is and what feels he gives them showed up at my door with a bag of flaming dogshit. 

i was like “ey you’re supposed to put that down, ring the bell and run away, that’s how this prank goes”

but they were all “no i know that i just… i wanted to see you…” and our eyes met

and everything was turds

and i was like “put the bag down”

and they did

and i stomped that fucker with my bare feet

pretty much that’s all.

Tumblr culture is so fucking ridiculous. Crush it wherever ethical.

The simplest solution would be to make an expanded tag be the venue of positive fans. Such as, say, Cronus Fans?

I like that idea. I’d stay out of that tag because it at least has a plausible presupposition that people who use it want to say nice things about the character as a person instead of reading the work critically.

And then no one would have to unethically distort the meaning of the word “hate” by using it where it is not appropriate to describe all non-positive emotions, a ridiculous and insulting abuse of language that I am absolutely committed to eradicating no matter how many stupid feels people have.

It would be utopia on Tumblr, until someone fucked it up.

well i mean i wanted to see the actual post because both of you are being pretty immature about all of this and i have no idea why

There is no specific post, they just showed up in my inbox. I guess you could check my #cronus ampora tag if you wanted, but it doesn’t really matter. This happens every couple of weeks and dealing with the tag police is de rigueur if you’re popular and you have an interpretation of canon that is even slightly controversial.

My immaturity in these matters is deliberate, because I get trolled all the time and the first rule of not losing your mind is that trolls that show up disheveled and uninvited never get the good china. Also because I am immature, which makes it somehow even more funny because despite myself I keep being less childish than the people who bring the fart jokes out of me. 

i guess controversy happens in fandom all the time. i'd be hard pressed not to verbally bitch slap anyone who thought negatively of feferi or eridan, but as long as there's respect (unlike here) i don't really see any need to exacerbate the issue. this is all getting a little out of hand, might be best to just drop it.

Seriouspost: giving me advice like you just did is over-familiar and presumptuous. Please don’t do things like that to people who don’t even know you, there are more ways to be rude than saying “fart” a lot and then laughing like a maniac. :/

cronusamporaa:

And the terrible thing with their “logic” is that they can post whatever they want in the tag as long as it’s relevant to the tag. It doesn’t matter how offensive it is. It doesn’t matter that it’s problematic, that they’re making people feel like shit. And it especially doesn’t matter to most of the HS fandom because they couldn’t give a damn about Cro or his comparatively small fandom.

But watch someone do the same thing by this fuckwit’s logic in the GLBTPQA tags. Or in the racism tag. Or the sexism tag. Obviously there’d be a problem, right?

Leaves much to be desired.

You’re right, fandom problems are the same thing as racism. Except you forgot to compare me to Hitler so your post is incomplete.

I feel less bad about being better than you because at least I don’t tag my character hate or make people feel like shit for liking a character.

BRB crying over being ~*~Tumblr Inferior~*~

What kind of response is this? Please stop being rude to my friend for asking a question.

What’s this, three now? Or four? I’ve lost track.

Oh well!

NOTE: I hope none of my Faggot Brigadiers are going over and playing inbox peekaboo—it’s not my place to tell my friends what to do [even though we are pretending I am the Butt Pirate King] but just look how stupid friends-of-the-blogger look when they swarm and ask yourself if that shade of puce looks good on anyone D:
