I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

Sometimes I wonder how many people know that "OTP" means "One true pairing", not just "THESE TWO MAKE KISSY FACE NOW PLOX"

OTP anon here - When I sent that last one, I meant that it’s such a widespread phrase now, that sometimes I forget what it means and wonder if it happens to other people, and if still others even knew what it meant to begin with

Linguistic evolution on tumblr is pretty fascinating, as words/phrases which are scarcely a couple of years old have already expanded in definition/had their definitions changed altogether. 

GPOY, for example, means “gratuitous picture of yourself” and originally was a tag for selfies and selfies only. But nowadays it’s used as more of a “me too” moniker. Such as a textpost that says, i like dogs tagged with #oh me too #i love dogs #gpoy

Just as OTP on tumblr has expanded to mean “ship that I like maybe more than others” rather than “one true pairing”. You can call it typical of tumblr overexaggeration (I’M SCREAMING I’M CRYING i comment on a text post that made me smile briefly before scrolling on). But also, with the expansion of fandom spaces and the growing acceptance of multi-shipping/poly-shipping, you’ll rarely find shippers nowadays who are exclusively dedicated to one pairing in one fandom only. 

They’re out there, I’m sure. But most people at least have more than one fandom and at least one ship per fandom. Gone are the days with entire archives and forums and websites dedicated to ONE PAIRING. In the late 90’s it was so much easier to have an OTP without getting distracted. 

See also related created words: brotp, ot3, ot4 etc. 

In conclusion, I’m pretty sure at least 80-90% of fandom does, in fact, know what OTP stands for, but it’s widespread usage does not reflect its literal definition anymore and it’s no particular loss.

I seriously just had a blonde moment of “hey, look, meh-guh, that looks just like you…. -r icon of RDJ, oh, right.” 
*blank stare*
If anyone ever confuses me with a duck, they are henceforth pre-forgiven. :p

*OBNOXIOUS CACKLING UNTIL THE HEAT DEATH OF THE UNIVERSE*

That was exactly the reaction I was going for. Including mention of the death of the universe. My work here is done. :D

The poster is shocking. Phil’s forgotten how young Clint was when he started, the cockiness in his eyes and the defiance. It’s hanging in a pawn shop in Indiana, proudly displaying the abs he falls asleep with every night and a flash of underwear. Phil asks to buy it. The owner refuses; it’s a piece of history. It’s an Avenger’s history. The wad of cash in his inner pocket is out before he can think and, hardly a minute later, he walks out of the shop with the frame under his arm. These abs are his. This man is his. No one should get to see him so vulnerable.

Hello everyone. I don’t post on here very often. But I need anyone and everyone to boost the hell out of this.

Yesterday, my car died. This resulted in me losing not one, but both of my jobs. I have no friends in the area because we just moved and most of my friends are away at college. I live with my fiance’ and his family (thats another story entirely) but obviously we need money still. We want to move out of this hostile environment(the people we live with…its just not good) and I know you all have the power to help us.

I have a small business. It’s called Tay Tay’s Crochet. You can find it on instagram under the #taytayscrochet. Also, timid-byesexual.tumblr.com/tagged/taytayscrochet

I make quality scarves, hats, blankets, for babies to adults. 

Help us to be in a better environment. 

If you’re interested in knowing more, you can always message me and ask me questions… 

Everything below, I have made with my own hands. 

we just really need help. image
