we have literally created our own dialogue? language? here on tumblr and i think that is the most amazing thing ever please disregard my shitty editing skills

no listen this is actually really amazing because this is a real thing. i think this counts as a pidgin language. a pidgin language is basically a changed, simplified version of a language. you can change the spellings of words, pronunciation, grammar rules, or even make up new words. i think. i’d have to research it a bit more to be sure but i’m 90% sure this is right. if its not a pidgin language, then its a lingua franca but thats more used for trade and stuff like that. but still a new language. so yes, we’ve created our own language. we’ve changed the whole sentence structure. we can trail off sentences, say things like “i just cant”, and use words like ship, OTP, fic, fandom, feels, and ship names and everyone will understand what you’re saying. the part that i love most is how people go “OMGH IM CRIIY NIG SOIOO HARD” and understand each other. for example “IM LIUA GHMNIG”. that one was incredibly easy, but if you knew that said “I’m laughing”, congratulations. You speak a pidgin language. we can even say stuff like “Does anyone know of a Johnlock fic, at least 20k words, not a WIP, with no OCs, and is Post-Reichenbach? Or just a Destiel PWP would be great.” To someone not on tumblr, that wouldn’t make any sense. but you understood, didn’t you? One characteristic of a pidgin language is that you have to learn it like a second language. Another characteristic is that it is frequently changing. tumblr goes through many trends with how we talk. if i remember correctly, when i first made an account about two years ago, talking like this wasn’t quite as common. also, that thing of suddenly capitalizing your sentence is fairly recent. you know, when people go “the new epISODE IS TOMORROW”. Like one of the people up there said, all of this is awesome because how else do you easily show emotion and tone over the internet? we’ve even made a whole sense of humour that most people here share in. There’s so much more that I could talk about with this, but i’m tired and i may be entirely wrong about everything. but yes. people on the fandom side of tumblr who speak like this are speaking a new language

Sherlockian Friendship Bracelets

All the fun and bonding of running terrified through the woods decoding mysterious messages, without the running terrified through the woods part. (Unless you want to. What you choose to do with your friend is your business.)

You’ll need:

  • seed beads (tiny round glass beads) in at least two colors
  • bugle beads (tiny tubular glass beads) that match one of the seed bead colors
  • beading cord
  • two jewelry clasps of your choice
  • one friend

To make the bracelets:

String the beads using Morse code as your pattern. Use the matching seed beads and bugle beads to represent dots and dashes, respectively. Add space between letters with the alternate color seed beads.

Use a Morse code translator if you want to change the messages.

Once you’ve strung your messages, add extra beads until each bracelet is the desired length.

Finish each bracelet with a clasp.

Present your second friendship bracelet to someone who will get the joke, or is a good enough friend to go along with it anyway.

Dedication.

Alright, I know we’ve seen the posts on AZstuck about these “Homestuck Hunters” but I decided to screen shot a good amount of the posts as proof (in case we need in for any reason).

But honestly, these posts sicken me and scare me to death. Part of it all seems in fun to them, but it’s still scary. We are being threatened with stickers and silly string that could ruin and stain our cosplays that we’ve all worked so hard on.

I’m scared as are a lot of us who don’t know what to do. Please, homestucks at Phoenix Comicon, stick together in a group so that it’ll be safer for all of us. We need to keep our eyes open and be aware of what is happening around us.

They’re even saying that they’ll move on to another fandom when they are done with us.

Please spread this around and warn other homestucks. We are trying to get them to stop but just in case, please be careful. They are taking this way too seriously.

What the fuck.

Batshit people in large groups.

I think that all writing is useful for honing writing skills. I think you get better as a writer by writing, and whether that means that you’re writing a singularly deep and moving novel about the pain or pleasure of modern existence or you’re writing Smeagol-Gollum slash you’re still putting one damn word after another and learning as a writer.

(I just made that up. I imagine it would go something like: “Oh, the preciouss, we takes it our handssses and we rubs it and touchess it, gollum….no, Smeagol musst not touch the preciousss, the master said only he can touch the precioussss…. bad masster, he doess not know the precious like we does, no, gollum, and we wants it, we wants it hard in our handses, yesss…” etc etc)
