find a show that makes you feel so passionate you’re bursting with inspiration and you can’t help but write no matter what. keep that show in your life. the teen wolf fandom is not what it was, sure, and i don’t think as many people are as involved, idk, for me, personally, i write because i still want to, i don’t do it for notes or reviews, i just have stories left for stiles and derek in my head. better ones for my soul than the ones i saw on the show like, writing for me for sterek was therapeutic, and so is reading, i read new sd fics every day, and they’re a blessing!
but fandom is not the same, fandom as it was no longer exists, my part of fandom is much more private, much more careful, and much less willing to put themselves out there. and it’s up to you, personally, how much you remain in fandom, how much you put out there, but tbh, i just got sick of people telling me what i could and couldn’t ship, what i could and couldn’t like, what i was and wasn’t allowed to think, and whether or not i was a bad fan for not liking Jeff Davis’ choices.
my blog is just more about the stuff that makes me feel alive, and happy and like i appreciate tv again. like, i’m not going anywhere? but, in general, for sure, there’s not ever going to be the big fandom there once was. there’s nothing left to unite us. there’s too much water under the bridge, and so much has happened, so many blows have been given. who knows, but, you know, don’t lose heart in what you want to put out there. maybe we’re part of the missing .6 but that doesn’t mean we don’t read fanfiction or celebrate the show we loved anymore
