What happens when two human memes love each other very much? A beautiful thing–between the two of them, they make more memes. Take, for example, the case of Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston. On the early evening of June 15, 2015, news broke that the singer and actor, both known for their rabid internet-based fandoms, had been spotted kissing on a beach in Rhode Island. This union used the internet to erupt into a fervor of “Hiddleswift”-themed memes and reactions, not unlike when Hillary Rodham Clinton told Donald Trump to “delete [his] account” last week.
I, for one, am just happy that Taylor Swift is being messy again. Truly! We’ve endured nearly a year of mostly drama-free Taylor (some Kanye West beef aside), but it is the rocky shores of Rhode Island where Taylor seems to really find her truest, most mess-filled self, like when she spent over $17 million on a beach house so she could cosplay as a Kennedy. Of course, I do wonder how Tumblr will sustain its inevitable increase in traffic and content–because, as everyone knows, Avengers Tumblr and Taylor Swift Tumblr are some of the most prominent factions on that website–but no matter. I am here to post them. So, check out these perfect internet reactions to Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston makin’ out on some rocks:
1. In the beginning…
2. This was, overwhelmingly, the reaction many people seemed to have:

3. And this:

4. Some wondered why film stills from the new alien movie was trending:

6. Is there really a correct reaction here, though?
Everyone: "Keep Taylor Swift away from the MCU and Marvel"

7. The most passionate members of the fandoms, of course, were a little more forgiving:

9. Find the lie here, as they say:

14. Seems reasonable, tbh:
Not sure what Hiddleswift is but context clues are telling me it's either something from Harry Potter or Game of Thrones

16. Taylor, as we all know, is not one to respect the expected selfie interlude in new relationships:
