Okay wankers, wtf

Guys. GUYS!

I am oblivious to wank in Merlin fandom. I don't follow the anon meme, hell, I don't even know what it's CALLED; I'd have to GOOGLE IT. I don't have many Merliny people on my flist. I don't pay wankers a single spot of attention. I came into the fandom at what was, apparently, a low-wank point, and I've made very good, close friends, of exclusively mellow awesome people, because I was a reluctant and extremely annoyed BNF in a previous fandom and I learned my lessons WELL.

So now today (and maybe in the past couple weeks it's been simmering, I can't really tell...) my flist explodes with people being FUCKING GODDAMN VAGUE about WANK and FEELINGS and related bullshit, and all those cool mellow wankless awesome people? MAYBE LESS WANKLESS THAN I THOUGHT? But I can't TELL because I DONT KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING. Somebody fucking FILL ME IN before I have to strap on my HAZMAT SUIT and dive into the anon meme, and somebody SKETCH THIS SHIT OUT FOR ME because I am relatively new to the fandom and don't know sordid ~history~ crappity do. I would like to comfort people in their time of need, because I am, in my never humble opinion, kind of awesome at macheteing through wankery, and not letting this crap get to me because I've been doing this shit in one way or another for something nearing two decades now, but I have NO IDEA whose toes I'm stepping or what to do or say.

Fuck, people, you've got to give me deets or I will have to go spelunking and I don't WANT TO because UGH. Primary sources, in fandom, are the WORST.

If you don't feel comfortable leaving me a comment on this F-LOCKED POST, then you can email me, it's just my lj username at gmail. I just want to make sure people are happy and having a good time - as it's psmithery's birthday rather soon I was going to try to arrange something for her pleaaasure, but if the fandom fucking self-destructs before the end of the month, how will that happen???

PS: fanks aerisa for your lovely lj-gift, you really didn't hafta but it's appreciated all the same. ^_^;

eh, basically the only deal is the Team Lust deal at the pornathon all over again, with the anons championing lust and deciding that I am the bluntest crayon in the box. some people in Lust are on the meme and a few of them publicly reposted the private discussion I was having with them, making it fair game for all the anons in the world to pick apart my quotes and decide I am ~the worst~.

basically just people being douchebags because they want pthon to be srs business and not porny funtimes, so that makes it okay for them to ruin things for others. I got upset and some other people did too but I'm okay now.

YOU ARE NOT THE WORST!

I'm not going to go so far as to say that you are the BEST because that's OBVIOUSLY reserved for *myself* and sirius *preens with Pride* but COME ON, WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK.

Of course, were I in your position, I would have BANHAMMERED like 90% of the offending assholes, so I can't talk, but really, they should be kissing your fucking toes for taking on so much stress. Jesus. Have some fucking empathy for christ' sake.

Ah! Thanks for posting this so succinctly. That's the perfect amount of information to satisfy my curiosity without making me feel like I'm being sucked into wank.
