Have a great trip! (Uh, and… what happened last time…? Sorry, I’m new here *G* )
Last January, I travelled to London for a week, during which SWH was on a brief hiatus. As soon as I left, the fandom was bombarded with new Hiddles material and videos and whatnot, and that hullabaloo continued for the entire week and didn’t stop until I came back. I could only watch in horror from my phone’s Tumblr app how the new footage kept flooding in and the fandom was spinning towards madness and distressed asks were filling my inbox, while I was sipping coffee at Trafalgar Square or something and being unable to attend to the chaos that was taking over, due to both being rather occupied with London and not having a steady wi-fi.
It’s like he knew.
*dramatically reappears from the mist*
I’m back from Berlin! Everything seems to be more or less fine in the Hiddlestoner community - not much worse than it was a week ago, at least. I hope you’ve been well, and had a nice week. Good to see you all again!
Remember what happened last time you left? Brace yourselves, everybody.
Maybe he’ll take it easier this time. When I came to London he surely just felt threatened and defended himself by attacking the entire fandom emotionally and hormonally. Now that I’m a bit further away from him, he might feel safe enough just to sit around his house and have a cup of tea instead of running around ripping his shirt off and whatnot.
SWH is taking a short break again as I’m leaving for Berlin tomorrow. I will be gone until Monday, and will be back to update SWH and to answer your asks somewhere around next week once I get settled back home.
Take care, guys, and let’s hope Tom will take it easier this time while I’m gone.
…though that might be a bit too much to ask.
Due to my absence, no Follower of the Week will be announced this week, and since I’m still as lazy as I was the last time, there’s not going to be a queue either. So, SWH will fall silent for a week or so…
*dramatically disappears into the mist*
See you next week.
Ohhh gosh thank you! And an OLLA content warning you shall get - Only Lovers Left Alive premieres here on 21st of March, so it’s just a few weeks from now! Content warning coming up as soon as I’ve seen the movie.
What list? Oh do you mean the handwritten list? It’s around here somewhere, though it’s incomplete, since I lost track of my anons at one point, and, just, never caught up.
NOT A DAY GOES BY THAT IT DOESN’T BOTHER ME
Stay calm! Post-OLLA shock is a severe condition that renders your hormonal system defenseless and overactivates your sensory functions. This causes hyperactivity, strange or uncomfortable sensations all around your body, heightened sense of sight and touch, and deep desperation of emotional and/or sexual nature. Ease your sufferings by effective relaxation (e.g. passing out), breathing exercises (e.g. screaming in a funny rythm), cooling down (e.g. dunking your head into a bucket of cold water) and relieving stress with physical exercise (e.g. running into walls and furniture). You’ll be alright!
SWH is celebrating its first birthday on March 10th, woo! During its year-long existence, SWH has provided all sorts of survival tips on how to deal with a life of not dating Tom Hiddleston. Do you happen to have a favourite one? Or is one of them just screaming to be acted out? Goooood. Because, you see, we’re having a contest…
This contest will be about survival pics; send me an image of any of the SWH survival tips (view here) in action. You can choose to draw or photograph. A drawing can be just a one-frame image or a short comic strip; a photo or a photoset can star anyone you like (yourself, your mates, your stuffed animals or the neighbor’s dog that I hope you will return to its owner unharmed). Send me your pic as a photo via submit. Include the survival tip you’re referring to by adding a link or a quote. You have until March 2nd to send your submissions. One submission per blogger!
I will choose the finalists and publish their submissions on March 3rd here on SWH. People will then vote for their favourites by liking, reblogging and commenting on the posts. The submission with the most notes on March 10th will be the winner.
And yes, there will be prizes…
(Image quality isn’t the best possible, so click on the items for more info and the shop/artist!)
Winners will be announced on March 10th and contacted personally as well. Notice that you must be willing to give me your address to receive your prize as the items are coming directly from me, not via the shops. If any of the winners cannot be reached or is unable to provide an address, the items will be forwarded to next runners-up.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Good luck, and have fun!
Ah mah gawd! SWH birthday is approaching fast!
Slight change of rules: the deadline for leaving submissions has been extended to 6th of March - finalists thus published on 7th of March and there’s three days to vote after that. Winners still announced on 10th of March.
So, a week left to leave your submissions! Only gotten photos and photosets so far!
COME FORTH! FLOOD ME WITH SUBMISSIONS! FILL
THE EARTH MY INBOX!
Glad to hear that! That’s what this blog’s all about! Welcome aboard!
Enjoy your stay. Snacks on the left, straitjackets on the right.
Take deep breaths.
Relax your muscles.
Repeat a soothing mantra inside your head.
Hold your mothers hand.
Bury your head into your mother’s lap.
Fall on the floor.
Rock back and forth.
Wait till someone shows up to carry you out.
Go have a drink and try again tomorrow.
Give him some lovin’
There, there! How would you know you won’t find a guy like him? I mean, it’s not like I’m trying to question your social life here, but I’m pretty sure you haven’t met all the guys out there, so you might be jumping into conclusions here.
…although all the other awesome dudes are just as annoyingly lovely as Tom and will piss you off with their general existence just as much.
