2025: When Tumblr Takes Over

9 Comments

Have you ever wondered what will happen in the future, when the masses of nerds currently spending their teenage years on Tumblr grow up and become what we like to call “mature members of society”? Well, we hopped into a Tardis and surveyed the world as it is in 2025. Read on to find out what exactly happens to our planet and our society in the future… when the fandoms take over.

  • “Too many feels” is an appropriate reason to call in sick to work. Especially if a show affected by Steven Moffat has aired the night before.
  • It is a universally accepted fact that any tall man with a long swishy coat and great hair must be in a vaguely homoerotic relationship with his flatmate.
  • Shipping things is a socially accepted pastime. It applies to all things, people, and situations without any exceptions.
  • Likewise, it is perfectly normal to walk down the street and sort passer-bys via the Sorting Hat and the Scarf of Sexual Preference.
  • All government-issued ID state blood type, House allegiance, and fandoms as vital statistics.
  • Celebrity sex tapes are shrugged off as being yet another manifestation of the ever-present Rule 34.
  • Gifsets are a valid form of communication.
  • Carrying salt and duct tape in your purse is not strange. One can never tell when the demons are going to attack.
  • Any mention of the word “Always” is followed by a bout of hysterical crying.
  • It is also an accepted fact that Johnlock and Destiel are a THING.
  • Despite our best efforts to the contrary, “Fetch” has, indeed, happened.
  • In a similar line of thought, wearing pink on Wednesdays is required by law.
  • It is possible to have a whole conversation using only Mean Girls quotations, and no one will judge you.
  • People who do not like to read are forced to compete in the Hunger Games.
  • There are several universities that offer courses in the study of Horcruxes.
  •  The birthday of Harry James Potter is a holiday that is celebrated worldwide.
  • The world is torn between electing Gandalf as president and Loki as supreme ruler. This makes campaigning a little bit difficult.
  • Everything takes twice as long because everyone is constantly on Tumblr.
  • During a wedding, a couple is no longer pronounced to be man and wife. They are instead pronounced to be canon.
  • Boring stuff never gets done. Everyone refuses to leave the house for anything that is less than a seven on the interesting things scale.
  • All conversations are ended with the phrase “…and then they had sex”.
  • National anthem has been changed to Kansas’s “Carry On Wayward Son”, narrowly beating out other contenders – namely, AC/DC’S “Highway to Hell” and Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger”.
  • It is widely believed that if something cannot be said with a gif, it is not at all worth saying.
  • Hashtags replace thesis statements in most academic works.
  • Times when Tumblr is down for maintenance are known as the “Dark Ages”.
  • The price of Impalas from the late 1960s skyrockets. Kansas now most popular place to obtain license plates.
  • Hawaii is renamed “Mordor” for two reasons: It has volcanoes and one does not simply walk in.
  • A fez and a bow tie count as formalwear.
  • The Quidditch World Cup is about as important as the FIFA World Cup and the Superbowl combined.
  • Everyone knows what to do in case of an attack by demons, vampires, werewolves, ghosts, weeping angels, Daleks, Death Eaters, Romulans, Klingons, regular angels, golems, consulting criminals, strigas, gods of mischief of all sorts, pagan gods, cults, and suspicious happy people.

I love candlelight dinners, long walks on the beach and killing demons. Usually you can find me at rock concerts. 90% of redditors believe me to be male. I'm pretty sure I'm Loki.

  1. *claps* Thank you. Now off to prepare!

  2. Love this!
    Particularly: “It is widely believed that if something cannot be said with a gif, it is not at all worth saying,” (so true already) “Despite our best efforts to the contrary, “Fetch” has, indeed, happened,” and “All conversations are ended with the phrase ‘…and then they had sex.'” And then they had sex.

  3. Hashtags replace thesis statements in most academic works. #ICantWait

    We’ll have classes in twitter and tumblr instead of Word and Excel. ^_^

  4. “Despite our best efforts to the contrary, “Fetch” has, indeed, happened.” – LOL!
    I love this and now I’m ready for 2025.

  5. “Likewise, it is perfectly normal to walk down the street and sort passer-bys via the Sorting Hat and the Scarf of Sexual Preference.” I feel like a complete geek just knowing where that came from. Got to love it!

  6. This isn’t another sex game is it? And then they had sex. Ehehehehehe! #FTW

  7. Reblogged this on Princess Nox: the curious adventures and commented:
