Ummm… yeah. So, my laptop’s hardrive died. I’m trying to get it fixed but, I might be gone for a bit :(

Just a heads up.

If you want to avoid all things carmilla today just blacklist "carmillapocalypse"

Guys, seriously. Other than the fact that going back and liking the previous tweets would make it more likely to get another season. These tweets go all the way back to July. And they are real time. So you get tweets about Laura’s Over Protective Dad (not all are present),

Hey look, mentions of Danny and Carmilla. Yeah. Not all are present either. There’s more.

Not to mention Laura,

Laura,

Also, there’s a few things from the handbook!

Again, there’s more that you need to read for yourself!

Bonus from Carmilla’s Twitter:

Well, that explains why Carmilla needed a new roommate.

But seriously guys. Go look at the tweets and like them. TPTB care about Twitter more, AND there’s a ton of information about the series. Seriously, go check them out to tide you over until tomorrow!

I just don’t understand where this concept of ‘fake geek girls’ came from. Like, AT ALL.

Cus when I look for fandom related stuff like 90% of the fan art and the fanfiction and the meta, zines, comics, etc. Like90% of the shit that I’ve seen is created by women & girls.

And all that stuff take’s a lot of work and research and critical analysis and staring at reference photos for hours.

We are literally the most well versed and invested group in the fandom. So, like, What the fuck boys? You mad you can’t keep up?

I saw an argument, and I can’t find it now, but it totally made sense, that there’s a gender split in fandom. Male fandom tends to be a curator fandom; male fandom collects, organizes, and memorizes facts and figures. Male fandom tends to be KEEPERS of the canon; the fandom places great weight on those who have the biggest collection, the deepest knowledge of obscure subjects, the first appearances, creators, character interactions.

Female fandom is creative. Females create fanart, cosplay, fanwritings. Female fandom ALTERS canon, for the simple reason that canon does not serve female fandom. In order for it to fit the ‘outsider’ (female, queer, POC), the canon must be attacked and rebuilt, and that takes creation.

"Male" fandom devalues this contribution to fandom, because it is not the ‘right’ kind of fandom. "Girls only cosplay for attention, they’re not REAL fans!" "Fanfiction is full of stupid Mary Sues, girls only do it so they can make out with the main character!" "I, a male artist, have done this pin-up work and can put it in my portfolio! You, a female artist, have drawn stupid fanart, and it’s not appropriate to use as a professional reference!"

In the mind of people who decry the ‘fake geek girl,’ this fandom is not as worthy. It damages, or in their mind, destroys the canon. What is the point of memorizing every possible romantic entanglement of heterosexual white Danny Rand if someone turns around and creates a fanwork depicting him as a bisexual female of Asian descent (thus subverting Rand’s creepy ‘white savior’ origins)? When Danny Rand becomes Dani Rand, their power is lessened. What is important to them ceases to be the focus of the discussion. Creation and curatorship can work in tandom, but typically, in fandom, they are on opposite poles.

This is not to say that there aren’t brilliant male cosplayers or smashing female trivia experts, this is to say that the need of the individual fan is met with opposing concepts: In order for me to find myself in comics, I need to make that space for myself, and that is a creative force. Het white cis males are more likely to do anything possible to defend and preserve the canon because the canon is built to cater to them.

Final carmillapocalypse post creampuffs, listen up!
Are we all prepared for tomorrow?! Here are some final details to hopefully clear up any confusion.
When is it? -From 12am (thats midnight, yo) Thursday 16th for 24hours. Its up to you if you follow your time zone or EST for this, obvs.
What is it? -The main purpose of the carmillapocalypse is to let the show’s financial backer know how much we want a second season! The name of the mystery financer will be in Thursday’s press release from carmillaseries HQ, which will be out some time after noon. The more #carmilla PR they see the more likely they are to agree to finance more episodes, simples.
(Secondary reason for the carmillapocalypse is basically that we love it and are overwhelmed with feels).
What can I do: There are a multide of things that you, yes you, can do! Here are a few, though we encourage you all to contribute in any way you can think of:
most importantly we have to flood the sponsors feed with requests for a second season, on every form of social media possible. As previously posted, it is particularly important that many millions of these come from residents of Canada-land, due to the location of said financer!
tag all your posts everywhere with #carmilla, #carmillapocalypse and the #[mysterybrandname]. This is great publicity for them and will work similarly to a good bribe.
change your tumblr url to something carmilla-related
consider, if its not already, dedicating your blog entirely to carmilla posts for a day
change your icon on social media sites to something carmilla-related, or indeed add one of these lovely creampuff pngs to your icon (credit: hijadelnuberu)
make that thing you’ve been meaning to make, be it a fic, a piece of art, a playlist, an interpretive dance. Do the thing.
suggestions over in the chat included a #carmillaPRselfie, for here, for twitter, for instagram, for that other place that we don’t talk about. Write the hashtag on a bit of paper, write it on your forehead in sharpie, stick it on your dog, do it however you like.
And finally, we will be attempting (successfully) to trend #carmilla and #[insert mystery brand name here] at 7pm EST, so TWEET YOUR LITTLE HEARTS OUT CREAMPUFFS. This is the ideal opportunity to be tweeting at the brand with your pledge of undying love in return for a second season, and the reason their name is being included in the TT is, as above, to look like the lovely little PR monkeys we are.
Happy pre-#carmillapocalypse creampuffs, wherever you are!

After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?

“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”

The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.

BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?

BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?

The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.

This. Is. Not. OK.

guns… literally more important than the lives of women in the state of loveable mormons

I go to the University of Utah and I literally had no idea this was happening. Wow. Not surprised though. There’s a lot of hatred here, under the repressed white heteronormativity.

WOW. As a member of the gaming community, this makes me physically ill.
