boring-i-know

anonymous asked:

Confession: I've a bit of a crush on you. if I ever got to take you on a date, I'd love to make you feel like a king. Also, you make every other top I've been with seem overwhelmingly boring.

I think I know who this is hah.

I'm so sorry...

Don’t apologize in your fic notes.

Not seriously anyway. It’s fine if you’re joke-apologizing for writing angst or a cliffhanger or whatever, but saying things like “I’m sorry this is shit” or “this chapter’s really boring, I don’t know why I wrote it”, helps no one, especially not you.

You are a strong, confident author who’s written an awesome fic! You have nothing to apologize for!

That’s the you to be presented when you’re posting on ao3. All the worry and self-doubt belongs in private conversations with your friends. Not in your author’s notes at the top of the page.

Putting apologies at the start of a fic or a fic chapter (or, god forbid, half way through) achieves nothing. It won’t make readers sympathetic to your plight. The nice ones will just, consciously or unconsciously, start looking for these failings or errors you’ve mentioned, which they probably wouldn’t have even noticed before. The nasty ones will sense weakness and attack in the comments.

If you need someone to hold your hand and tell you you’re doing ok, that’s fine. Lets face it, we all need that from time to time, especially when we’re putting ourselves out there and posting our fic, making ourselves vulnerable. But your readers aren’t the ones to do it for you. And making yourself more even vulnerable by letting them see your insecurity is not good for you and not good for your fic.

You both deserve better.

I spent way too much time on this

i’ve been thinking way too much about. fucking. galra empire memes lately

as in memes popular within the galra empire becuase BOY does life get dull when you’re part of a sprawling civilisation that hasn’t been challenged in 10,000 years

i’ve only thought of a few

  • -points at a random object going by outside the ship- “is that voltron”
  • -something incredibly minor goes wrong- “fUCK YOU ALTEA!!!”
  • ‘which lion would you pilot’ quizzes because let’s face it everyone and their progenitors dream of flying one of those babies one day
  • quintessence puns

I’m not crazy, y’all. Dragonball Supers animation is bad on a basic level.

Not sure if the Animation Director or the story-artist is more at fault but regardless, the product is bad and someone should have known better.
