“I Make The Reporter Beatbox” (Lin/Reader)

Ah yes, POV Switch day for @hamwriters write-a-thon. I was looking forward to this, but at the same time I wasn’t because I was afraid I’d slip back into second person accidentally, but I don’t think I did. I’m really proud of this, but kudos to @psychedemigod for the idea and encouragement and many gifs.

Also??? I have 193 followers? Thank you all so much! I’ll try to write some back up fics to post on some type of schedule once writeathon is over!

Warnings: Beatboxing? Coffee? Cookies? Nothing much, really. It’s p fluffy.

Words: 1000 (u g h so pleasing <3)


“Well you know,” I started, knowing the reaction I was to expect. “I make the reporter beatbox.” I cross my arms and see the reporter’s eyes go wide. I didn’t exactly know why, but I had a feeling that they would impress me and give me what I had been waiting for from a reporter. They seemed to know something about what they were doing with the actual interview and I was hoping they’d know what to do when beatboxing.

“Uh, well… Shit… I mean, I can do it! Alright, uh, I haven’t beatboxed since late high school or early college, Jesus Christ…” They laugh, rubbing their neck, setting their list of questions down on the table beside us. I cross my arms and smile at them, waiting.

I’m so overwhelmed with your support and feedback. I never expected anything like this.

<3 Thank you so much for all who have read the fic (it’s still continuing, mind you).
<3 Thank you for all the fanart and your thoughts about how the story might go.
<3 Thank you for sticking with me.

Without your support and feedback I would have stopped writing the fic a long, long time ago.

Soul Mate 30


“The voice you hear your thoughts in is your soulmate’s but you don’t know who they are until you hear them speak for the first time." 

A/N: This is it, this is the end. UNBELIEVABLE! Wow, thanks for this wonderful journey, my dudes! Thought I’d point out that I incorporated a few ideas from those of you who sent in some good ideas to add to this. In case it confuses you, Ben is called Ben when around family/friends, but Kylo when he’s amongst himself. Any who, under the star line is an alternate universe where it’s modernized (thank you to the anon for that idea!) BTW, can’t believe this fic hit over 100K words, over 1000+ notes, 400+ kudos on AO3, and endless love and feedback from you guys! I LOVE YOU ALL! [GIF NOT MINE]

Word Count: 6.6K+

Warning: You know what, you’re probably gonna cry.

SOUL MATE MASTERLIST

AO3


One whole day: twenty four hours, two minutes, seven seconds. Kylo pondered upon the ticking clock in his mind, the overwhelming reminder that you weren’t coming back. If he was so lucky enough–a man as troubled as himself–to have the stars bring him back to life…why couldn’t you have been lucky, too? The guilt fed on him, if he hadn’t saved you then, you wouldn’t be dead now. Or would you? That house fire was disastrous, but at the same time, if the First Order hadn’t infiltrated your home planet, you still would’ve been fine, living on your own without a single worry of death. Yet, Kylo stood there, blaming himself. He shouldn’t have left you all those years ago, he shouldn’t have allowed Snoke to deceive him. He was never meant for the Dark Side, yet, he wasn’t meant for the Light either. Kylo pained, he pained over his past, the life he had, and the two lives he lost–their blood in his own hands. Even if he hadn’t literally killed you, in his mind, he metaphorically had. But, Kylo took in a deep breath and appreciated the little he now had, although he had lost you and his father and possibly himself…he still had his mother, and his mother was good enough. Because in the end, he never felt the slightest of hate for Leia.

being a writer is like working in customer service

I wish people would stop telling me the reason why I write. “You write for you, not for other people! You write for you, not for gratification!”

Different people do things for different reasons. I’ve already tried to explain why I write but that’s been ignored.

And for those claims of “people don’t have time to review everything they read”, well, that’s the problem. That’s literally the problem. Someone tried to tell me that it was merely Tumblr-logic, that people come to this site for short posting and photo blogging and stuff like that, so long posts like fan-fiction that take time to go through don’t get as much attention. (Note: I don’t buy into that much because there are tons of long posts on Tumblr - which has been around for almost a decade now and has grown from its original purpose of short posts and photo blogging - that get crazy notes. But I chose to humor the person who told me this anyway.)

Okay then, so I started focusing on adding things to websites that were built for long posts. FanFiction.Net. ArchiveofOurOwn. WattPad. I tell you, it’s no better over there than it is here. You might get a couple of faves/kudos, and you’re lucky to get more than one review. On AO3, I probably have two or three out of twelve fics that received even one comment. The rest got zilch.

I’m not expecting people to review everything they read. If a fic of mine got 1000 views, that would mean I’m expecting roughly the same amount of reviews. I’m definitely not. But I don’t think it’s wrong to expected 1/100th (10) or 1/80th (12) out of that number. It’s not unreasonable.

I’ll just repeat what I’ve already said; what a ton of other people have been trying to explain. The writer versus reader give and take ratio has been turned on its head. Almost every writer I see begs and begs for even one or two comments but readers are in such a hurry to take and take and then move on with their lives that they can’t afford that extra two minutes. Why can’t they? If writers can dedicate hours, days, weeks, months, years of their time to bringing you quality goods, why can’t you take an extra two minutes on top of read-time to tell them what you thought, how much you appreciate their time and dedication?

It’s a double-standard, okay? Why are we held accountable to keeping up with fics/updates, held accountable to keep up with writing at all, but readers aren’t expected or held accountable for anything? Why am I being told to be grateful for what I get and to shut up, stop complaining about this, when all these unfortunatelyungratefulpeople come and go as they please and it’s a-okay for them? Why is it wrong to expect some sort of response when I take so much time away from sleep, eating, used to be in between working multiple jobs and school all at once?

Tbh, I don’t feel like people can understand where I’m coming from unless they’re also a long-time writer themselves.

Being a writer is like working in customer service. We basically sell our souls to present good product to the consumer, but we’re underpaid, underappreciated, etc. We’re vital cogs in the wheel of civilzation (or, in a writer’s case, fandom) but we’re treated like dog poo. Every once in awhile, we get an evaluation, a meager praise/raise, but it’s hardly the legal guaranteed requirements. And for that we continue to strive, toil away, stressed and burdened and trying oh-so hard only for nobody to notice. Nobody says anything.

Oh, but they’ll be happy to cry to you about updates or complain to you about waiting in a split second.

It is not that I don’t appreciate the little goodness I do receive from my readers. Yesterday I received an ask from someone telling me they’d miss my work dearly, I was tagged in three separate posts by people who said much the same thing - that they’d miss my fics, that they had always loved my portrayal of the characters I write about and that my works have a history of uplifting or inspiring them over the years.

But now I ask you this, and it’s another something I posted about recently that I may just reblog again after this post is up, why did it take this long to be told these things? Why would one wait years to tell someone something good about their accomplishments? Suddenly it seems they have the time when the alternative is that the writer is planning to shut down all future projects and quit the craft permanently.

Isn’t that interesting?

So don’t tell me it’s about time. People go to writing sites to read. Boom. That’s it. Then they apparently have enough time to read, but not enough time to comment? That seems sketchy af tbh. Reviews take two or so minutes to write. It’s not outrageous to spend that time. It’s like gratuity. If your waiter/waitress spent a solid 1.5-2 hours dedicating themselves to good service and atmosphere at your table, why the hell would you walk away without giving them a little something for their efforts??

it's your heart i wanna live (& sleep) in

Pairing: Taehyung/Jimin (side Yoongi/Jungkook)
Author: conditionally
Rating: PG13
Genre: College AU, Strangers To Lovers, Fluff, My-Roommate-Sexiled-Me AU
Summary: The first time Jimin sleeps over at Taehyung’s, it’s an emergency. The other times after? That’s a different story.

Admin Notes: this fic killed and then resurrected me again. the best romances stem from best friends and this is exactly what vmin have. i’m gonna pilot non-platonic vmin til the day i die. this fic has everything from sleepy cuddles, sharing clothes, even sleepier study dates, to meddling friends and 9 am jogging dates. the kind of fic u really just fall into because it’s so believable and vmin’s relationship is so domestic they might as well have been dating from the start. 1000/10 would read again.
by the way, this just came out today, so it’s shiny and brand new <3

I just clicked on a kl@nce fic with OVER 1000 KUDOS and I cannot for the life of me figure out why it has so many. The author didn’t even TRY to stay in character. They made Keith dumb! They literally wrote it so that Keith is an idiot and Lance has to explain everything to him. They basically took a random scenario and slapped Lance and Keith’s names on it. Either that or they’re so much of a lance Stan that this is their way of getting revenge on Keith. But I’m gonna say it’s more likely the first one and honey THAT IS NOT HOW FANFICTION IS SUPPOSED TO WORK
