Fanfiction authors are people who write as a hobby. They’re not paid, they do it on their own time, and they do it for fun. Some authors use fanfiction as a way to improve their writing, but unless they ask for critiquing comments, don’t be that person - even if you have good intentions. You don’t see the damage that you do, but damage is done.
The best way to encourage fanfiction authors to keep doing what they’re doing is to let them know what you liked about their work. I’ve seen too many fic authors get discouraged in their writing because of people who leave less than favorable comments on their work. Leave the critical comments for people who get paid to write.
Again, I’m not asking you to lie to spare the authors feelings, I’m asking you to just refrain from leaving a negative comment.
5/5 (*****) - An all time classic match, and the shortest 5 star match of all time. A beachball decided to interrupt the RAW Tag Team Title match, and Cesaro decided to teach it a lesson it’ll never forget in an impromptu match. Never have we seen such a brutal assault on another competitor. Cesaro should be fined for attacking an opponent who couldn’t defend themselves, but in the moment, it was amazing.
The performers, who call themselves “funnyguys”, advertise that they will paint any message on their body in exchange for money while dancing in the jungle.
While many choose their own name or a funny message, PewDiePie jokingly asked the pair to display: “DEATH TO ALL JEWS”.
He published the resulting clip, showing them dancing and laughing while holding the antisemitic message above their heads, on his YouTube channel.
While some fans found the clip funny, others said the star had gone too far.
Despite requesting the hateful message to be displayed, and publishing the resulting video, PewDiePie apologised to fans at the end of the video – but still gave the performers a five-star rating.
He said: “I am sorry. I didn’t think they would actually do it. I feel partially responsible. I mean I’ve got to give them five stars for an outstanding experience because at least they did what I asked.”
He added: “I don’t feel good. I don’t feel too proud of this, I’m not gonna lie. I’m not antisemitic, or whatever it’s called, okay so don’t get the wrong idea. It was a funny meme, and I didn’t think it would work, okay. I swear I love jews, I love ‘em.
"I am so sorry. I don’t know what else to say.”
pewdiepie paid some guys actual money to hold up a sign that said “DEATH TO ALL JEWS”, published it, gave them a 5-star rating, and then tried to shrug off any responsibility by saying he didn’t think they would really do it. he even says he only feels “partially” responsible and he’s “not antisemitic” despite the fact that he 1) posted this video so close to a surge in antisemitic hate crimes following trump’s election and 2) posted this video at all.
this isn’t funny, this isn’t satire, it’s gross and hateful shock humor at the expense of people who are already unsafe with the increasingly emboldened neo nazis–i mean, “alt right”. it’s not defensible. stop supporting him.
practical? modest? dependable? reasonable? I could be talking about a mini van or Ryan Gosling it doesn’t matter because both are a perfectly sensible investment with 5 star safety ratings across the board
my fav type of dirkjohn is dirkjohn filled with like… absolutely juvenile, petty, pigtail pulling on the playground levels of bullshit an nonsense
dirk breaks into johns house just to eat his leftovers and to give 5 star ratings to softcore gay porn on john’s netflix account and screw up his recommendation algorithm
john uses his windy powers to get into dirk’s house undetected, and every day for three weeks systematically moves his furniture one quarter of an inch to the left
dirk takes to re-arranging all of the clothes in john’s dresser so he can never find the shirt he’s looking for
john leaves water balloons in dirk’s mailbox which don’t actually accomplish anything but rolling onto the pavement and bouncing away gently and dirk has to go pick them up like a dumbass because its technically littering
dirk leaves a single slice of brooklyn style pizza tucked snugly underneath john’s windshield wiper like a leaflet
neither of them can explain why they’re doing this or what it accomplishes when prompted, and everyone around them is disgusted at their weirdass 6th grade level black-red flirting
Rockwell Granger isn’t exactly a bad guy. On the wrong side of 40 after turfing out of the military, he’s drifted from town to town and a series of dead-end kitchen jobs and quasi-legal freelance work. But his longtime dream of owning his own restaurant has finally come true, back in his hometown of Portland. Rock should be happier than ever, but the reality of his dream has a nasty habit of dragging him down. His customers are uncultured savages, he’s not making enough money to pay back his loan sharks and they’re forcing him to do something morally iffy or they’ll take his truck. And possibly his thumbs.
Harper Marbury isn’t exactly a thief. She works half a dozen side hustles to pay her rent at the Split Apple Co-Op Loft where she shares overcrowded floorspace with dozens of spare changers, young families, traveling musicians, burnouts and scam artists. Developing a love of cooking by throwing the random ingredients found in the Co-Op’s fridge every day together to feed her roommates, Harper’s been nurturing a dream of what she could do in a real kitchen, with real ingredients. When she breaks into Rock’s truck, mostly it’s to get out of the rain, but when he doesn’t show up, she opens up for business. Just to try it out. Just to see what it’s like to cook in a real kitchen, with real ingredients.
When Rock busts Harper, he hires her on instead of kicking her to the curb, inducting her into the arcane rituals of food cart society, a land where every cart collective is a gang vying for territory and rivalries are resolved with food truck duels rolling down the middle of Hawthorne with baseball bats. While Harper learns the ropes, Rock begins his job for the Bardems, searching for the identity of a rogue food truck operator who’s invading the Bardem’s territories. Together with Harper, as his conscience and helping hand, they’ll navigate a world of secret menus, food pirates, culinary femme fatales, curmudgeonly dads, shadowy figures, creeps, foodies and 5 star ratings, trying to uncover the secret before the Bardems burn Rock’s world down.
He’s a really shitty driver who constantly gets pulled over for speeding, although he never gets a ticket for some reason.
He has 300 5-star ratings despite keeping his car trashed. All the ratings say something like:
“Really good listener. I found myself telling him all about my problems and things I’ve never told anyone else before. He got me here in half the usual time. I didn’t even realize you were allowed to drive on the median. Neither did the cop who pulled us over, but apparently it’s fine. Great service, tipped him $500.”

This is in response to a very near and dear to me character's disappearance from S4. I need answers, Julie!
“So no chance of being adults about this, then?” Even sighs and gets up to crack his neck, avoiding the gaze of the smaller irate boy glaring at him from the couch.
Isak’s eyes positively glower, “I am the most adult. I am the adult-est adult in the entire spanse of adulthood.”
“Clearly,” Even makes his way to the kitchen, and when he returns it’s with two plates of Isak’s favorite dinner. “I already apologized.”
“Yeah to Jonas. What about me?” Isak sniffs, but moves a little closer to the chicken and macaroni dinner, “This smells really good, but I’m still angry.”
A quirk of the lips, “You think this smells good, wait till you see dessert.”
Isak takes a bite of the macaroni and sighs, because fuck Even can cook. He knew how to make even the simplest of meals turn into a 5 star rating on the hungry 2nd year cook-o-meter, “You think I don’t see that you’re trying to bribe my forgiveness with food and sex?”
“Who said anything about sex?”
“Oh,” Isak swallows another bite, “I had assumed that would come later.”
Even tilts his head to consider, though the smile on his lips made it clear he had made his mind up on that issue many a time ago. “Hmm. I guess that can be an option.”
“You guess. He guesses. I am traumatized, Even! Absolutely traumatized- I need the comfort of my boyfriend in these trying times.”
Even groans, laying his head back to the top of the couch, “It was a hat, Isak. A hat.”
Isak wonders if it’s too dramatic to claim that the hat was his best friend.
