Let’s ease some of today’s tension, shall we? o.O
This is the followup post to the earlier question I had about what is permitted to be signed at autograph sessions at Cons. BUT, I’m making this a video post cuz when I ran into Posey at a Con several months ago, I sassed him and he was a doll (as usual) and it’s kinda funny. Once you’ve chuckled a bit at this Con-brightspot, then take a deep breath and know everything’s okay. (Okay? Okay. #tfios )
Here’s the MTV Teen Wolf official stance:
“thanks for the ask - this seems like an important one to clear up, because all tw fans are our number one priority. jeff davis, mtv, viacom, mgm, fox home entertainment, or any other person or company who owns or distributes teen wolf has never banned anything from a convention. the only conventions with an official authorized presence from mtv are sdcc and nycc, and we have not (and will not) ban anything from there. sterek is even nominated for ship of the year, and its shippers are nominated for fandom feat of the year at the mtvu fandom awards, which will be held from sdcc.
How you doin’ so far? Okay? Okay. (:
So, now here’s MY official position:
Today of all days (being America’s day to celebrate it’s Declaration of Freedom) I want to reaffirm that each of us humans - no matter where we live - have the Unalienable Right to the Pursuit of Happiness. In the tumblr-verse, similarly, YKINMKBYKIOK. And, we all agree that if there is something personal that might be a “trigger” - for whatever reason - we will respect another’s feelings and give them a Trigger Warning. So….
I, Eaddy, do hereby inform any individual whom I may encounter in public or online, that I may have triggers to your words or actions and I ask you to quietly respect them and not take my sentiments personally. I will afford You the same respect.
And if you already know there is an issue with someone, then give that person some space about it. There. That takes care of any future encounters we may have. Okay? Okay. (:
That’s it. That’s how I think creature to creature encounters should unfold. No more, no less.
I love You, Teen Wolfie. I always want You to feel comfortable being You. I always want us to feel at ease around each other.
Now you’ve heard the official source… and you’ve heard from me :) We may hear different positions from various other entities and if some company or event doesn’t have rules we like, we’ll make our decisions accordingly. That is our Right.
But, I will say again, it is incumbent upon us each to NOTIFY others of our boundaries.
Okay? Yeah, I love you.
