That’s what happens when you collect together a remarkable group of people who really love organization and want fanworks to be findable. It breaks our hearts to see even one work vanish into the void.
(For those who don’t know, “- Ambiguous Fandom” is AO3-speak for “There’s more than one completely unrelated fandom by this name, so the generic form will be shared and useless for filtering.” Each of these tags has at least two subtags for the actual fandoms involved. Here, check out some of these unfortunate cases, bathed in the tears of wranglers:
- The Eagle - Ambiguous Fandom (shared between The Eagle of the Ninth and Ørnen: En krimi-odyssé)
- The Runaways - Ambiguous Fandom (shared between the movie, the tv show, and the band)
- Graceland - Ambiguous Fandom (shared between the tv show and the album)
- Borgias - Ambiguous Fandom (shared between the tv show and the other tv show)
…AAAAAAAAAND (drumroll please):
- The Avengers - Ambiguous Fandom (shared between an awesome British tv show originally from the 60s and some comic book thing)
Remember, peeps: Leave your ambiguous tags at the door when you come party at AO3.)
(This has been a PSA from one of your friendly neighborhood Avengers wranglers. No, not those Avengers - the other Avengers. You know, the ones with the awesome lady spy.)

Attention fellow photosensitives!
I’d like to take a moment to tell you all about what is now easily my favorite XKit add-on, Disable Gifs.
Disable Gifs is almost everything I could have wanted from a photosensitive accessibility add-on. It will:
- Automatically stop gifs on your dashboard. This feature isn’t quite perfect, because it will only freeze gifs that are part of a photo post (meaning that you’re out of luck if someone adds a really flashy gif anywhere in the comment section, which is why non-photosensitive folk still need to please tag for this stuff), but it will definitely help with the majority of flashy things that will pass your dashboard.
- Allow you to play individual gifs at will. Specifically, each photo post with an animated gif will have a “Play Gif” (see image) option at the bottom of it. Simply click on this to animate all of the gifs in a post. If you want to see a specific gif in a photoset, just click on that image to view it with Tumblr’s photo viewer, and it’ll pop up and play.
- Easily stop gifs again once played. That gif a bit too much for you? You hate seeing it out of the corner of your eye? Just hit the “Play Gif” button again and it’ll stop.
Seriously, guys. My Tumblr experience is now so much better thanks to this add-on. Its main drawbacks are that it doesn’t stop gifs within the body of text and that it might slow down your computer, but I haven’t had any performance issues with this as of yet, and I’ve still found that it’s dramatically reduced how often I get triggery gifs on my dash. A+, would highly recommend.
To welcome this add-on into your life, first get XKit if you do not have it, and then go to your XKit “Get Extensions” tab, search for “Disable Gifs”, and click “install.”
Oh, and if you’re doing this during the holiday season, to turn off the annoying flashy Christmas lights, hit “Festivus Person?” in the lower right hand corner.
Don’t just erase bad memories. Wipe your hard drive.
yes hi I’d like four please
It’s logo is a skull wearing a sombrero. FML.
OKAY SERIOUS TALK GUYS!
This clown has been seen over the past few weeks around Mansfield, Chesterfield and Doncaster, I haven’t seen a post about it on here and I really want people to know about it.
Okay so first of all besides it being really frickin creepy to begin with (designed to look like pennywise the clown) it has been roaming the streets at night time, it was started out by a student film director who was doing it for fun, but it has sparked a few people to take it farther.
Some of the clowns have been tapping on windows, trying to get children out of the house (Reportedly) also it is believed that some of them have knives and are marked as dangerous.
Please please please if you live in these areas or know someone who does, especially of they have kids, could you signal boost this? I just really want people to be safe!!
I heard friends say that he’s been sighted in Nottingham and Lincoln as well. Good thing I live on the 6th floor. Hard to tap my window.
There’s not just one, and they’re in sheffield too, a girl from my year got a picture of one on the road that my school is on. They will follow you home, muggings have been reported, although it is not believed that they go into buildings or actually attack anyone with their knives.
Apparently there is one in Lancashire and burnley too! Pls be careful!
They walk inside people’s houses if the doors aren’t locked. They also aren’t near my town, but everyone’s talking about them.
there was one at my school a couple of weeks ago and we got told that if you see one to report where they are to the police straight away
WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON IN ENGLAND
Tony: That’s not a real tree Legolas.
Clint: Shut up Tony!
No I’m sorry but if you live in a world where there are literal soul sucking monsters and shadows which suffocate you in your sleep and a teacher is a 13 year old boy’s worst fear then that teacher is fucking inexcusable and Snape apologists need to just have a think.
coulson and johnny and.. black square
I really wish that fandom wasn’t so freaked out about any kind of negativity. I get that we all want this to be a safe space, and be supportive and kind, and I think that it should be! but I think the degree to which people tamp down any and all negativity is bad for fandom as…
Fandom is my safe space. I get enough negativity in RL, enough people criticizing me for the shows I like and the hobbies I have, and I come online, to tumblr and twitter and ao3, to avoid that. That’s why I dislike seeing hate in the tags.
As for concrit, I don’t believe it’s my place to offer it unless it’s requested, and even then I wouldn’t offer it in a public forum — I believe the lack of a private messaging system on ao3 prevents even what little concrit people might be willing to offer. Telling someone that Phil’s eyes are blue, not brown, is one thing, but I’m not going to pick apart someone’s work where everyone can see it. I guess I think, that’s what beta readers and first readers are for?
I have been the recipient of unsolicited “concrit” in a public forum before, and it’s not an experience I wish to foist on anyone.
Hey dudes, if you’re in the Avengers fandom, you should vote on this poll! It lets you select more than one ship, and it’s a pretty long list. Just to specify, I made it because procrastination, and I’m just curious.
Huh, I expected higher numbers for Phlint. Yay for Stanner though!
I expected Phlint to be higher too… maybe people just haven’t seen?
Also, why no OT3s??
do 4 people really ship Coulson and Loki??
maybe its changed since thisiswinterrmute voted but Phlint has only a little fewer votes then Stony
C/C is second only to Bruce/Tony now.
*waves OTP flag fiercely*
Also, Coulson/JARVIS? I am intrigued!
