From the commentary, apparently Jubilee’s the fashionable team vampire mom, Morph is the resident Sad Boy, Hindsight’s the new half Korean character (like writer Christina Strain herself) who has psychometric powers and loves vintage clothing, Bling is struggling to find herself and fit in her diamond skin, and Naturegirls going to have a hard time connecting with the others because she understands nature better then people. There wasn’t info for Eyeboy and Quentin, but the art is from Christina Strain’s twitter. Strain chose artist Amilcar Pina to be the penciller bc of his alternative and modern style. Check both of them out on Twitter! Issue 1 of Generation X is coming out in May!
So as you may know the last few days I’ve been sending as many writers kind messages to encourage them and remind them how talented and special they are. This happened because I was sick of seeing so many people thinking it’s okay to send hateful and hurtful anonymous messages to fanfiction writers.
Writing fanfiction is hard. It’s hard to get characterizations right and there is always going to be someone who doesn’t agree with what you write. People will always be there to hate your story, to tell you that it sucks or that you didn’t write the character the way they imagine them to be. It’s tough but we do it because we enjoy it and it’s fun for us!
Of course there are many people sending writers wonderful messages and that always makes fanfic writers feel like they are doing something worthwhile. But unfortunately people also send writers horrible messages, because they are able to and have easy access to do this.
So I would like to start a movement, the #bekindtowriters movement. This movement is for all fandoms, please spread this to all fanfic writers! This is all I ask:
Send your favourite fanfiction writers (on anonymous or not) something kind. Tell them you love them, tell them you loved a certain piece they wrote or anything just be nice
Leave comments on a fic that you enjoy and say that you enjoy it.
Writers you are also encouraged to send kind messages to your fellow writers to encourage them!
If you do receive some love from someone, tag it with the hashtag #bekindtowriters
Just spread love and happiness to everyone who do really lovely things and don’t deserve to be attacked.
If hateful or hurtful messages are sent to your inbox delete them
Please spread this. I am trying to spread kindness to as many people as I can but I can’t do this alone. Help me wipe out the hateful people and start to be kind to everyone. Build up the community you are in and care for them.
How can we make a more intimidating prosecutor?
alright why not we make him super tall, a literal convict in jail for murder, with hawk-like markings on his face. Also he can literally create a slicing wind with his hands and can break out of his shackles any time he wants. He has a pet hawk who attacks people and literally threatens to kill people while prosecuting. He is the physical embodiment of the dark age of the law.
Life tends to get extremely busy, and when I post starter calls, they end up getting buried and I feel horrible about it! So I’m bringing back a [ new ] permanent starter call! Basically, if you like this post — you are wanting my muse and I to :
give you ramen on a daily basis.
jump into your inbox.
post random starters for you.
send you memes or become the meme.
make graphics for you when the inspiration hits.
IM you and give you more free ramen ( and some love ).
and just let me love you in general?
This will help me keep track of the people who want this nerd to come and bother them ♥!
in regard to the Finn discourse, i just wanna say one last thing before i leave it alone. being a fan is about more than simply liking an actor. it’s about more than admiring them or thinking they’re cute or funny or whatever. it’s about respecting that actor as a person. i have no doubt that the fans who are giving finn a hard time on social media aren’t trying to come across as rude or negative– they do it because they love him and they love the show, and they’re invested in it. but you have to understand that asking invasive questions about people’s personal lives and holding them up to ridiculous standards and crossing lines that ultimately embarrass that actor is not respectful no matter what your intentions are.
