I don’t understand why it’s ok to “ship” two same sex people who aren’t gay? Like johnlock stuff for example. Neither of those characters have ever identified as gay? Is it ok to project a certain sexual identity onto people who don’t actively identify as that? Or project any identity onto anyone who doesn’t identify as that?
Like this is something I legitimately don’t know and am asking so I can learn what is right???
as a shipper of things, I will tell you why I ship, dear friend

Why You Shouldn’t Take Selfies Right Next to a Moving Train
im sorry but
So last night, this happened.
I really, truly did not think it could get any better.
SURPRISE - IT DID!!!
[[very minor details of show contained in this post, but hardly anything]]
RIGHT. So I got there a touch later today, and didn’t see them go in. But that was okay! I got in, to the same seat as last night. They were late to the stage and I was going crazy, but good LORD was it worth the wait!
One of my favourite things is when comedians just stuff up and break and laugh at themselves. This happened to our dear Hanso SO MUCH tonight! Oh god, he was so so funny and sometimes he kept in character, and sometimes he lost it completely! The crowd was SO MUCH BETTER, way into it and cheering and clapping along even! The guys seemed heaps more relaxed after the first night, and you could tell what a good time they were having. The show was perfect. Chris climbed in my lap again (he even asked if he could, how polite), and his crotch was even closer to my face than last night. R I P.
So I wasn’t sure if I was going to wait around afterwards or not. I didn’t wanna seem overbearing. I got out and went to the loo, and then stood around for a couple of minutes just texting. The foyer cleared out! It was nothing like yesterday, no-one was standing around to wait! Anyway, anyway, there I was, standing there, texting. Who should just APPEAR NEXT TO ME?
ANDREW HANSEN IN HIS TINY TINY PRECIOUS LITTLE GLASSES
I looked up and there he was, giving me the biggest smile! Chris was there too, but talking to someone else at the start, so I got Andrew to myself for a little bit. He said thank you so much for coming, this and that, and we laughed about the stuff ups. He was talking about how it made them nervous to perform in a new venue, because they never know what’s going to happen! I reassured him it was great and he smiled even BIGGER! Then, he brought up the topic of the letters, and Chris came in the convo here. Now, the next bit is for everyone. For anyone who gave me a letter, here is what they said, as close to verbatim as I can:
They both said thank you from the bottom of their hearts. They said the letters were the nicest thing they’ve ever received, and they were so deeply touched by the effort we put in, and that it meant the world to them. Both Andrew and Chris reiterated several times that I was to tell everybody thank you so, so much. They kept repeating how nice and special they were, how touched they were, everything.
FEEL SO SPECIAL, EVERY LAST ONE OF YOU. It shows how much they really, truly do care about us and appreciate us!
Chris was teasing Andrew - he said “and how many times did this guy stuff up?!” laughing at him! Andrew was his usual deprecating self, and I kept reassuring him how amazing it was. Andrew said his throat was tickly in the morning and he was worried about his voice! I blamed the Melbourne weather.
It was HEAPS COLD tonight. When Andrew came out, he was in a t shirt. In the space of our maybe 10 minute convo, he put on a jumper, AND a coat!!! He was so CUTE! And Chris was wearing a big wool coat and he looked amazing.
Andrew kept saying how glad he was that I’d come again, and he said
I love seeing you there!
Then Chris asked if I was coming tomorrow and I said yes. He said
You’ll have to be extra loud, it’s ANZAC day and we’re worried people might not come!
I promised to cheer as loud as I could, and they both thanked me for coming again! Then their friends showed up and they were heading off, so I said goodbye and they told me goodnight AND NOW HERE I AM!!!!
WHAT WILL THE NEXT TWO DAYS BRING?
OH GOD OKA Y ONE MORE STORY I FORGOT TO SAY LAST NIGHT
before we took our photo, I took off my coat because it was big and bulky. I just did this and Chris was like
"oh! are we stripping in this photo?!"
and I said
YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT CAME OUT OF MY FUCKING MOUTH I SAID
"only if you guys do too!"
luckily they both laughed and then they hugged me again SO
If you’re looking for the “cheapest/easiest” pet
- don’t get a pet
THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST ACCURATE POST I HAVE EVER SEEN
why are we not talking about this.
OKAY SO I JUST GOT HOME AND I MIGHT NOT BE ESPECIALLY COHERENT BUT LEMME TRY! No show spoilers involved here for anyone who’s not seen it.
Okay. So. I’ve been building up to this since September this year, right back when Chris very first told us about it. Today, the day finally arrived! My first show! It didn’t feel real. Even when I was there it didn’t. I’m barely sure I’m alive!
ANYWAY OKAY THE STORY RIGHT
I got there maybe like an hour early, went for a lil wee, sat back down. The wee thing is important. If i’d gone any later, I’d have missed this part. So I looked up, and who walked through the door but Chris Taylor! We immediately made eye contact and he grinned and went “hey, Charlotte!”
outside I calmly stood up and said hey, and we chatted for a bit. He said the show was a bit rusty, and that they’d just rehearsed and forgotten all the words! He told me to laugh extra loud! It was SO CUTE! I reassured him it would be wonderful, and he laughed and fuck ME he was adorable! So he went on his way, and I sat down and internally freaked out. Everyone in the foyer was looking at me! Amazing.
SO THEN INSIDE I WENT. This was my seat!
SO CLOSE. I could almost reach out and touch! I chatted to some other people in the front row, including longhettis, who it won’t let me tag! Grr. And then Jenn chainsawnicorn arrived in the nick of time!
I won’t spoil the show. Talk to me if you want details, but it was EVERYTHING I COULD HAVE DREAMED OF AND MORE. My stomach and cheeks hurt from laughing so much! Seriously, it was absolutely amazing.
There were maybe 15 of us waiting, and a lady came out to say Andrew and Chris would come out, but they might not be able to stay long. We said that’s fine! But then a rude and grumpy employee came out and was like “they’re not coming, you know.” We ignored him. Surely enough, just a few minutes later, OUT THEY CAME!
They were wearing almost matching outfits. The cuteness was unbearable! They even commented on it! The girls I was chatting to went for photos first, and as they were getting ready, Andrew caught my eye and gave a big smile and said “hi, Charlotte!”
BUT THEN I DIED MORE
SO I gave them the little box of our letters and things. Their little faces…I cannot describe it. Their faces LIT UP so brightly, they gave the biggest smiles, I have never seen such gratitude! I said they could read them later. Then BOTH OF THEM HUGGED ME. LIKE, AT ONCE THEY BOTH LEANED IN. I hugged Chris first, who was super warm and lovely, and then Andrew, who was absolutely tiny and precious and ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. SERIOUSLY.
And we had our PHOTO
And then we spoke a little more, and I said I was coming to more shows and they looked so happy again! They have the best little smiles! Their faces..OH GOD I CAN’T DESCRIBE IT.
Andrew was especially enamoured with my phone case! He kept saying how cute it was! I want to buy him one now!
So then we hugged AGAIN!!!!!!!! And off I went and they said thank you again for the letters and oh lordy I can’t wait for them to read them. Thank you SO MUCH, everyone who contributed! They looked so fucking happy about it, I can’t describe!
This is a rush post! I’m sorry if it makes no sense, and I hope I’ve not omitted anything important! I have work in the morning and then my next show tomorrow night, but I will be around sporadically, so message me!
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT. Hopefully there is a lot more excitement to come - this is my FIRST of six shows!! Good lord!!
THANK YOU AND GOODNIGHT!
I’MN SMILIN SO MUCH OH GOSH
BUT THERES MORE
JUST WAIT TILL I GET HOME

[casual reminder that bucky’s lack of self care started way before winter soldier—at the bar with steve he had no sense of coordination, he was not clean shaven, mildly unacceptable given the time period, his hair was unkempt, and his uniform was not on properly, which was a BIG no, wherever you went. he was most likely suffering from severe depression and the beginnings of PTSD, sparking his sudden lack in self-care and subtle negative undertones of himself (‘I’m invisible’; ‘a nightmare’), and while this can be attributed to the joke he made, depression first manifests itself in minuscule phrases in every day speech]
