I do post about Chris and Will, occasionally about Darren and Mia, both in a positive light. If that bothers you, this probably isn't the place for you.
Fic links are to the left. Please to enjoy.
This is not a spoiler free blog! I do try to tag, but I get to flailing and sometimes forget.
So I did the thing. Fantasy AU wherein Kurt and Elliott are married and traveling performers. They recruit Blaine to become their apprentice, and poly romance/sex ensues. (20Kish)
It got sappy. You know, after the smut. Huh.
The first time that Blaine meets Kurt and Elliott, he’s ten years old and they are fifteen and eighteen respectively.
They come through his village as members of a band of entertainers who ply their trade to those who have the leisure time to enjoy it for a modest fee. Blaine’s parents don’t quite approve of their free ways, and make a point of criticizing their outlandishly styled hair, clothes, and painted faces, especially Elliott, who has multiple piercings and tattoos.
Despite this, most of the village turns up to see them, and Blaine…
Blaine thinks that they are the most interesting group of people that he has ever seen.
As the son of a baker, his life isn’t very exciting. He rises early, works until his knuckles swell and his body aches, and goes to bed late. His days are structured by baking schedules and customers and deliveries, not allowing for much variety or for him to think about what he would prefer to be doing with his life. Being allowed an hour at the end of the work day for two days in a row to go and watch the troupe perform is like being transported to another world, where fun can have nothing to do with duty, and where Blaine can watch with wide eyes as the men and women of the troupe dance and sing and juggle and swallow fire and tell stories and recite poems as if nothing else in the world is more important.
So again, in case you’ve missed earlier posts, there’s this person reposting fan art and photo edits and manips on their IG and tagging Darren and Chris and pretending to own a lj account that isn’t theirs either and so basically we should go and report them and/or tell them to stop this immediately. Makes me want to stop drawing fan art altogether, ffs.
How dare you? In particular these drawings?!!I’m also going to tagjudearayain this, because it’s her LJ they are falsely linking to & she should know about it. (Man, this is almost making me want to get an Instagram account, just so I could give that person a piece of my mind…)
Ok, so guys I want to clarify something and ask for help.
This instagram account is re-blogging fan art without crediting, and tagging Chris and Darren, which is something I DO NOT condone. I don’t agree with art/fic being re-blogged without crediting the artists and a *REALLY* disagree with them tagging actors who have expressed discomfort with RPF fic/art featuring them.
What really upsets me though is that they’ve linked to my Livejournal in their profile. They linked to a story I thought I’d taken down that I am really uncomfortable with. I’ve deleted it (although I thought I had?? That’s totally my fail), but I want to clarify that THIS IS NOT MY ACCOUNT. I am in NO WAY affiliated with them. Anyone who is following (they have almost 2k folowers), please know that this is NOT MY INSTAGRAM in any way. An artist contacted me thinking this was my account, asking me to delete their art because they weren’t credited and felt that their art was being stolen. Obviously we worked it out when we talked and I clarified that it wasn’t my account. If there are any other artists whose art has been posted, I encourage you to report this account. Honestly I’m going to encourage anyone to do it.
And that is the end of my angry rant. Please reblog and signal boost this post if you are up for it, because I really want people to know I have nothing to do with this AND I strongly disagree with posting art and not crediting AND tagging the actors, which I honestly find reprehensible and gross.
