hi can you pleEASE stop adding your comments to things of mine that you reblog????? then the version of my gifs with yOUR comments on them start getting spread around and it really, in my opinion, ruins the integrity of the gif/gifset no matter how cool your comment is. idk if you will see this but PLEASE stop doing it it’s really really really annoying
lol cool story bro
I am constantly BAFFLED by this fandom’s instance that adding new content ruins the so-called integrity of OTHER FAN CONTENT? like???? I don’t get it in the slightest. Fandom is a collaborative environment. Your work does not exist in a vacuum. Other people have the right to build upon the blocks you laid down. Fandom itself is transformative. I JUST????
what do mean “this fandom” as if people all over this site don’t make posts that have like 100k notes saying how annoying it is when people don’t use tags and instead add comments to people’s work?
lol cool story bro let’s just add shit like “HAHA XD” to people’s gifsets since “fandom is a collaborative environment”
idk man, I’ve never encountered that outside of hockey fandom but I’ll take your word for it. I just don’t see how someone adding their thoughts whether it’s “HAHA XD” or something more substantial RUINS anything. If it’s not your taste, it’s not your taste that’s cool. but like let people add what they want to add. if others don’t like it they can easily reblog from the source??? I don’t see the need to be mean about it and call people out for choosing to participate in the way they want to
I don’t really want to get into this but I think I see the problem. Basically you’re having an issue with the very nature of Tumblr. Tumblr is by design a place where content can be commented on, added to, and even changed, and then those changes can spread. It’s the nature of fandom on this site. If that nature is bothering you, frankly you’re on the wrong site. By posting on Tumblr you are tacitly agreeing that your work can be spread, shared, commented on, and added too. You also must acknowledge the risk of it being manipulated, reworked, and potentionally even stolen. Obviously those last few are bad, but most people know this. However commenting on something? Adding a ficlet to it? Adding more gifs? That’s the NATURE of Tumblr. It’s the way Tumblr works. And that’s a good thing. Because it allows people to make conversations and explore the media and gain friendships and relationships.
If you legit have an issue with it you legit are on the wrong site. Asking people to stop doing what is in the nature of this site to do is like shout into the wind. Pointless. I would suggest finding another site to host your works if it bothers you so much. Maybe Livejournal or Blogger.
Also: as far as I can tell most creators love to receive comments and fics and add ons to their stuff. I know when I’ve made stuff in the past I enjoyed it.

He fell asleep on the couch the night before, yet again, and he’s already up and showered by the time Jonny’s stumbling out of bed, yawning and rubbing his eyes as he walks down the hall, about to ask if Kaner wants to go get breakfast or something. And then he rounds the corner and sees this. Kaner shirtless in Jonny’s space, looking like he belongs there, pale skin and smooth back and muscled shoulders, his curls all damp and beads of water still sliding down his skin. And Jonny just… freezes, the words dying in his throat, because never in his life has he wanted something so bad.
And when Kaner turns around and shoots him that big, stupid, perfect smile of his, Jonny can’t stop himself from taking one, two, three steps forward, pressing Kaner against the glass, and finally dropping his lips to the soft, sun warmed skin of Kaner’s shoulder.
“Yeah?” he asks, eyes closed, feeling the way Kaner’s hot and trembling under his hands.
And Kaner laughs a little, softly, just surprised and delighted sounding, happy shocked.
“Oh, man. Yeah, of course.”
