Maybe someone can give me a hand.

I’ve been looking for a panel ALL DAY, of Scrooge floating barely submerged in water like the buoyant little duck he is, but I can’t find it. The best I’ve got for memory is it’s prrrobably in one of the IDW Uncle $crooges, but I’m not sure…? I’ve been up and down blogs I thought I’d seen it reblogged, plus have checked my own comic stores, and by now I’m all but firmly convinced I hallucinated it.

If anyone can help me find it you will have my eternal gratitude o/;

Okay I’m pissed off

(LANGUAGE WARNING)

I am going to be straight.

So I had a few hate messages (OH BOI MY FAVORITE) saying that I should kill myself because I shipped Scroogeley. Sure enough, I ignore it and move on. But one of my friends who doesn’t have a Tumblr posted some of her fanfics and started bullying her, leading to her retirement of the random and eventually her deleting her Twitter. Fortunately we still talk and share our fix ideas.

Believe it or not, they were mostly Scrooge x Goldie “fans” who disliked our ship and simply wanted us to cry like little bitches.

Now I could just write this towards all the stuck-up, self-righteous dipshits who think they’re so fucking clever bullying people, but instead I’d like to dedicate this blog to people who I really admire in this Fandom. People who might not be the most skilled but are extremely welcoming and friendly.

Thanks for being awesome and not being like others

@helloplaystationallstarslove, I’ve thankfully had yet to be subjected to the messages you’re getting, but I want to extend my apologies to you and your friend.  I hope your friend might be willing to share some of her talent in the future for those of us who are part of this little niche in the fandom.  I know I’d be interested in reading what she wrote!

To everyone in general, I have to say that I am incensed that this happened.  Not because it was someone from a ship I’m a fan of being bullied but that it happened period.  Even more so because I knew this was coming but I expected this sort of nonsense to start at the end of Season 1, not less than 24 hours after Goldie was introduced.

I mentioned to @sincerelysinclair17 not even six hours ago that this sort of behavior was pretty much inevitable.  I saw it with Digimon, I saw it with Harry Potter, I saw it over and over and over again with dozens of online fandoms.  It’s a cyclical thing with them; you can set your watch by it.  While I’m almost resigned to the fact that it’s started, I’m incensed that it happened this quickly.

Good Lord, people, it’s fandom.  You can filter out people’s posts of a ship you don’t like; you can write whatever ship you want to your heart’s content.  The point is to bloody have fun.  The show canon will continue on as the show’s writers decide it will regardless of whether or not somebody wrote a story with a ship you don’t like.  If someone wrote a ship you’re not fond of, skip it and move on.  There’s likely something more suitable to your tastes just around the corner.

I’m going to be very clear with my stance on this point:  If you bully someone over something this small and ultimately inconsequential, you have conceded the moral high ground on bullying in general.

Cybra said it way better than I could, but I just want to reiterate the point of this is for fun, guys. If you don’t like it, curate your experience and block it. All you do when you start bullying others is hurt people- and sometimes people hurt themselves because of harassment. This is ugly, detrimental behavior, and I’m truly sorry to see it going around in a fandom I’d otherwise known as incredibly nice and welcoming.  And most of you are!  I’ve made many great friends in this fandom. But this stress, this bullying, this behavior isn’t worth it.

@helloplaystationallstarslove I hope you and your friend are alright, and I’m glad you can at least still share with each other.

As a PSA of a sort, I’m going to be taking a break from this blog for a little while. I haven’t been in a great place lately, and I’ve recognized some stresses from running Duckblr here as being major contributors. I’m not going to go into too much detail, but basically I was concentrating too much on too many small, petty, and nonsensical things behind the scenes that my anxious mind didn’t want to let go of. So I’m stepping back to refocus, and try to stop letting all the stupid little things get to me.

I’ll be back before too long I’m sure, attracted by the siren call of Ducks. Until then, you can always feel free to PM/send an ask to Duckblr or my main blog here, or you can catch me on Discord. Otherwise, I’ll see you around soon, and hopefully in a much better state of mind <3

I make personal posts bringing up milestones often-ish, but I feel like this one is special. A year ago on April 3rd, 2017 this blog made its first post. Everything that’s happened since then has been phenomonal. Over 50 pages of content, nearly 900(!) followers, and so, SO many friends made that I would not have met otherwise. Incredible art, foreign duck stories not available here, episode geeking out, gifs, conversation, and overall outpourings of support. Even though there’s been drama here and there, every fandom has that and I can honestly say that the Duck fandom has been one of the best experiences I’ve had so far. It’s wonderful to be among so MANY peers, all of us joined together in one thing, our love for a bunch of fluffy little quackers.

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again.  Thank you to everyone supporting this blog, and sharing in this fandom with me.  Y’all make this so worthwhile and so much fun.

What Made You Decide to Make a Tumblr: I wanted to blog a whole bunch of Duck things but didn’t want to spam my main blog (which for the two above questions: roughly 2010 and 496).  So I made a sideblog instead and haven’t looked back.

I tag: Anyone who wants to do it?

And then after making that post my shuffled playlist decided to strike up

I mean, if ever there were a time, a photoset featuring Magica would be it.
