This finale of The 100 was incredible for a lot of reasons, but the one that is sticking with me is this: I am satisfied. I haven’t even begun to think of the time we have coming where there will be no new episodes, I am unbothered by the reality of the hiatus. There is so much to sit with and think about. What these characters have been through, the journey they’ve been on. And it’s not like we had a major cliff hanger (not that the AI reveal isn’t interesting), but… I am EXCITED for the next season, but I’m also satisfied with the ending. There is closure. And I will be back for season 3 excited to see what’s next, how the world expands, what new challenges await our broken and battered heroes.
I feel like in an effort to get hooks into audiences people often leave us unsatisfied, wanting desperately. But the truth is, if you really want to hold your audience, give them instead so MUCH to think about in regards to what has been that it will tide them over until the next part of the story.
I won’t really be speculating on season 3, but I will likely spend a lot of time thinking about seasons 1 and 2 and that… that is quite a feat. Refreshing, to be honest, in the world of shocking character deaths and cliff hangers.

You lose interest in things, you stop doing them. It’s that fucking simple. And interest isn’t helped by hate mail or guilt tripping.
I’ve gotten too many of these to count in the past year, and I don’t want to dig through my shit tonne of messages to find them all, but can you all just please stop? I’m getting so, so sick of these. I don’t have to do anything for anyone, and you’re deluded if you think I’m obligated to draw for you, if you aren’t commissioning me, and especially if you prod me like this on anon.
And it’s gotten bad as of late, so I am turning off anon for a while. I hate to do this to all the hundreds of really wonderful anons that I get, but I hope you understand that I’d like some quiet in my inbox.
Remember guys, we have lives. We have jobs, classes, hobbies, families, significant others, chill time, and activities. And a lot of us I bet are really busy.
Yet we still write fanfiction. We do it because we love it, and it’s a fun creative outlet that makes us happy. And we do it for free. In our free time. And we love it. I love it. I will continue to love it. And some of it is as good or better than stuff then you pay to read.
I know you are waiting for that next fic, that next chapter, that prompt you requested, etc. Please remember that while we are probably working on it and love to, there are other things that get in the way.
So give an author a shout and thank them for using their free time for the enjoyment of us fandom people.
