All the hate in the fandom, the Facebook group being reported, the Goodreads thread being reported, Sonja and Tristina being harrassed, all of this maliciousness and bullying and spite is your fault you know. If you'd just go away people wouln't feel so smothered and be so evil to each other. This fandom would be fun again.
I’m going to take this opportunity to lead by example.
These types of messages are not okay.
These types of messages do not create solidarity, nor do they enhance the fandom experience for anyone. All they accomplish, in the end, is to occasionally hurt someone’s feelings.
These types of messages do not, however, hurt my feelings, nor do they make me consider putting a halt to doing any of the things I enjoy. To put a finer point on it, while there may be some individuals who don’t find it worth the hassle to deal with idiots like yourself and they withdraw, effectively making your endeavor a success … basically you’re just pissing me off. And quite frankly, I think I might be scarier than you are when I get pissed off.
The Goodreads group thread thing was a single person being either vindictive or a special snowflake. It was handled. The Facebook group thing I haven’t heard anything about so I can’t address it. Individual instances of whatever are personal matters, and as I’ve stated before, I am not a hall monitor. I get wind of them, I get sick of them, I miss fandom contributors when they decide to disappear.
But if you’re actually implying that I am at fault for the actions of others, that I would encourage assholes like yourself to be cruel to people I like and respect, that I have the power to influence the behavior of hundreds, perhaps thousands of people, well …
Ty: In an alternate universe where Zane was somehow able to be deployed with you, would you be more inclined towards being happy that he was with you and able to watch your back or frightened of him being in a war zone?
I’m worried about myself in a war zone, or course I’d be worried about him.
Ts You guys are pretty funny especially when your bantering,when I want a good laugh this is where I come.:) so ty did Zane tell you about Ryan showing up and him spilling orange juice all over himself ?it was a total porn scene,he was blind at the time so I don't know if it was on purpose. (I like to poke the bear).
TS guys, pls enlighten this Brazilian girl who knows nothing about the US militaries: you guys are a team but now that you were deployed you are not together wherever it is that you are?! Also, I agree with the anon COME TO BRASIL!!! *mwah*
Ty: We were a team that was part of a larger unit. Recon teams would be put together in groups of 2-4 and led by a single officer, breaking off whenever needed to be led by individual team leaders.
Nick: We’re not a team anymore, so we don’t know what the hell they’re going to use us for.
Ty, I know your anti anything happening between Nick and Zane. However, would you be open to the idea of a threesome between you, Zane, and Nick? Nick and Zane would you guys consider having a threesome with Ty? Kelly, would you allow Nick one freebie night with Ty and Zane?
Ty: The emotional ramifications of such a thing would be too dangerous to try it.
Ty and Nick - apparently Abi ships (don't pretend that you don't know what that means) Freeman and Uggla from the Atlanta Braves as I have never seen them I'd like your opinions. (I have no idea what a designated hitter is either so feel free to rant as I find it kinda sexy)
Zane, as someone who stopped creating art for several years, I'm finding it really difficult to get my technique back up to scratch now that I've started again. Did you have a similar experience; or were you able to paint / draw at the same level you could when you stopped?
Art is subjective, so thinking of it in levels is probably not the best way to go about it.
No no no no no. The Nick/Zane pairing needs to stop. Ty and Zane have gone through too much and worked through a lot to screw it up with a hypothetical one night Nick/Zane pairing. I'm not against fan fiction. Sterek fan fiction and even some good Nick/Deuce fanfiction got me through waiting for the next C&R book. I'm just a romantic sap at heart guys.
to Preston and Julian: Back to your plan on how to take out sidewinder, if you said that between Owen and Nick there would be brains and unlimited resources, why not take them out first after taking out the heart of the team?
Preston: Because then you would have given Grady the time and opportunity to wind up like a Tasmanian devil.
Julian: I pity the poor fool who kills Nick O’Flaherty before he takes Grady out.
