When I was watching Tron: Legacy, and saw this über badass Clu 2 (Jeff Bridges) :
I was looking forwards to see Bruce Boxleitner in one of those wonderful suits, but all they gave me was that short bloke that was all the movie bouncing around parkouring kung fu style, while wearing a bike helmet (which he ain’t wearing in the pic, but in the movie, Tron-Rinzler gave me the feel that he had his bike’s engine running ready to GTFO there, LOL):
Mommy, That’s not Bruce… Mommy!
From my disappointment as fangirl, this fanart of mine I call Tron Under the Black Helmet, was bornt.

Anyway, when Alan (Bruce’s character) appeared on screen…
IT FELT GOOD, MAN! <3 And the movie was cool, besides it has one of the greatests OST’s ever!
The same as on Twitter, If I’m gonna get’em it is because they check my Tumblr/ Timeline, they like what they see and read; and finally push that li’l “follow button” as product of their human free will/curiosity.
I don’t think it’s cool to buy followers or get’em cuz someone gave’em to you as “a present” or as a result of a begged re-blog; earn them with the pace of time and with some work and dedication from you, like it should be.
If I follow-back is because I find interesting someone’s account/blog or to see what is like (the latter usually on Twitter), not cuz my account/Tumblr is gonna become famous, hip or trendy if I follow certain people. I don’t care about fame or making a business out of my accounts. Only about having a good time in a nice way.
Just because an actor uses twitter or does a Q&A with fans does not mean that he/she is your friend and enjoys whatever horrible mind-scarring nonsense you get up to on tumblr and twitter and fanfiction.net. There is a definite line between what’s acceptable to say to an actor and what isn’t, and essentially, everything in fandom IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.
Fandom is like Vegas — what happens here stays here, including whatever dirty thoughts, fanfiction, and general creepiness anybody has on their mind. You have filthy fantasies! whatever. You wrote porn! whatever. KEEP IT TO YOURSELF. You can share it among like-minded fans, but an actor is not part of your exclusive circle and should not be made privy to stuff like this. It’s invasive, rude, and inconsiderate.
