So a couple weeks ago I asked about if people would prefer me posting Pornstar AU NSFW images with particular tags or in a journal. After talking about it with Mandeh, we decided we wanted to do a separate journal so we could post small fic snippets, etc. to it.
We both enjoyed running the pornstar AU tumblr blogs but both of them ended up getting off schedule with where we were writing and where we were posting and that was difficult to keep up with. We hope that by posting texts, snapchats, gifs and videos of the boys and occasional chats that we will be able to provide the same experience that our pornstar AU blog followers got with their individual journals but with a more consistent postings.
So, without further ado, I present: thegreaterporniverse.tumblr.com
(just a note: this tumblr is explicit. just a forewarning.)
`Curiouser and curiouser!‘ cried Alice.

Summary: Vampire Alternative Meeting AU; Blaine meets an attractive guy at a Halloween party dressed up as a vampire. Things get weirder from there.
They meet on Halloween night at a party.
It’s a party Sam is throwing and Blaine is pretty sure the even he doesn’t know half the people here, though that doesn’t seem to concern him at all. He’s chatting it up with a few pretty model types and Blaine is sort of wandering around the party, holding is glass of way too spiked red punch and trying to find one of their actual friends to talk with.
“That looks yummy.”
Blaine stops walking and turns toward the voice. It’s a guy, sitting in the lip of their window, feet on the fire escape. The black cape he’s wearing sort blows a bit in the nice fall breeze.
“The punch?” asks Blaine, holding his cup up.
The guy’s eyes sort of sparkle. He laughs. “Yeah, sure.”
In one regard, amused. LOTR RPS invented the phrase tinhatter, though it was used for kind of the opposite of what I shipped. I liked Billy/Dom but tinhatter was the word for Dom/Elijah fans. Excuse me while I get out my walking cane and explain how we in that fandom walked ten miles uphill in the snow to invent new fandom phrases.
But in a more contextually relevant regard, it’s annoying as fuck because it’s just become sort of a way for people to insult crisscolfer shippers while still retaining the ability to say ‘well, I just meant tinhatters, not shippers.’
I’m not going to defend or qualify what I ship by going around having to explain to to anyone what degree (if any) I think it’s real just so people don’t judge me. Why would I? That’s time I could spend writing fic or sighing in a mixture of adoration and frustration at pictures of cute puppies on the internet. Better uses of my time.
Bad behavior is bad behavior and it comes from more than just tinhatters. If you want to call someone out for being rude to a celebrity or rude to other fans, by all means do it. I’m never going to stand in the way of bad behavior being corrected, but shrugging and going ‘oh, tinhat' is about as lazy a way of trying to sound morally superior as it gets.
In that regard, fandom is like religion to me: I’m an atheist but I don’t care what anyone else believes in. What I care about is how people act toward people that don’t believe what they believe.
And in my experience, the people using the phrase tinhatter are being pretty fucking vicious themselves, and their usage of it lets me know what kind of person they are just as much as the language that some crisscolfer shippers use (sexist slurs against Mia, ‘ratchet’) lets me know they aren’t people I want to associate with either.
