Writer says: So I had this crazy idea one day and I just had to work on it. Here ya go!

Writer means: So I had this crazy idea either right before getting in the shower or right before falling asleep so I grabbed my fucking laptop and shat all over it to create the steaming pile of crap that I now lay before you. I don’t even know if it’s good anymore. I haven’t slept in two days.

Writer says: Wow, real life’s getting busy! Sorry on the slow updates.

Writer means: My life is a literal storm of shit at the moment. Why did I decide to do this. Why am I still doing this. Everything around me is spinning out of control and I am staying up ‘til 5:30 in the morning every night to create a piece of work that will only get two comments and 12 demands for quicker updates. I hope no one’s mad at me, all I wanted to do was write.

Writer says: Wow! Would you look at that! I updated on time! Please enjoy!

Writer means:  WOOOOOOHOOOOOO BITCHES LOOK AT THIS PRODUCTIVE ASSHOLE GO YEEEEEHAAAAWWWW TAKE THAT YOU NASTY REVIEWERS ALWAYS DEMANDING ME TO BE FASTER! I GOT THIS SHIT I GOT THIS SHIT

Writer says: This chapter was a toughie. Glad it’s finally done!

Writer means: I don’t know if this is good or not. I honestly don’t fucking know. I’ve read the same words over and over and over again and I just couldn’t look at it anymore. My beta said it was ok but I’m not confident but HOLY SHIT I JUST NEED TO STOP WRITING THIS FUCKIGN CHAPTER.

Writer says: Thanks for reading!

Writer means: Please, oh please oh please oh please leave me a review. A comment. Anything. Please tell me you’re out there. Please tell me someone is reading this.

Writer says: I just want to say that real life is getting pretty hectic right now. Please try to be patient with me, I know you guys want updates. Thanks! :)

Writer means: FUCK. YOU. Who the fuck do you think you are, demanding shit from me?! You don’t know my life! I have a very busy life! I create shit for free, you entitled son of a pig-fucker! STOP LEAVING ME COMMENTS TELLING ME TO UPDATE SOON OR I SWEAR TO GOD I’LL PUKE ALL OVER MY COMPUTER 

Writer says: What’s gonna happen next? Who knows? Hee hee ;)

Writer means: I have no fucking clue what the next chapter is going to look like. What’s my plot? I don’t know. I feel no emotion.

Writer says: Please leave a comment! It helps me write!

Writer means: I am begging you to leave me a comment because I swear it’s the only thing that’s keeping me motivated right now, I hate the work I put out and I need reassurance that people are actually enjoying this.

Writer says: I hope you enjoyed that chapter, big things are coming up! ;)

Writer means: Buckle up bitches, someone’s gonna die.

Writer says: I know I’ve missed a few updates, but I swear I plan on finishing this story! 

Writer means: *high pitched eternal screeching*

Writer says: Here we are at long last! This has been one wild ride. I want to thank you all so much for your support and love, I adore each and every one of you. I am so happy to say that this story has come to a wonderful close.

Writer means: My body is numb. Voices call out to me from the void, but I can no longer hear them over the beating of my racing heart. I am stressed to the point where I feel no relief. The story is done. It’s fucking DONE. I loved it, I hated it, it was a fucking storm of horror and pain. I can no longer see color. Now I can at last relax and…wait……wait a second………..holy shit I just thought of the best idea for a one-shot that’s totally gonna turn into a 50 chapter slow burn AU fic leT’S FUCKING DO THIS

In ironic twist, McConnell tells Democrats to “grow up” and confirm Trump’s nominees

  • Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told Democrats they should “grow up” and confirm Trump’s cabinet picks — even without the requisite ethics clearances of some of the nominees.
  • McConnell’s comments came after Walter Shaub, who heads the Office of Government Ethics, sent a letter to Democratic Sens. Chuck Schumer and Elizabeth Warren saying that the confirmation hearing schedule — which six nominees slated to testify in a two-day period — has “created undue pressure on OGE’s staff and agency ethics officials to rush through these important reviews.” 
  • McConnell’s demand for Democrats to vote on Trump’s nominees before they are cleared by the OGE is quite hypocritical — given he demanded this of President Obama’s nominees eight years ago. Read more

mood: nick nocturne’s extremely intricate bookstore comparison to night vale that insinuates bitterness concerning how demanded his review on night vale was, all told overall in a very calm tone of voice for 10 minutes

@riallasheng reblogged this post and added: 

@indezaisive  It could be that the OP meant well and it simply came across poorly via text?  Although some of the points ARE very judgmental, I will not argue that.

I’ve been reading and writing fanfic for over 30 years and there are somethings that… well, the name may change but what the THING is does not.  There are also reoccurring, or neverending, trends in every fandom and all fandoms.

And most things that doesn’t seem to make sense to a modern reader DO make sense if you look at the history of it/what was happening at the TIME… or to use other examples terms that meant originally VERY NARROW definitions (headcanon, mary sue) that have had their definitions made so broad that people tend to use it for anything/everything

Agreed on demanding reviews being a bit ‘ehhhhhh’.  There’s a reason that I never DID (and still don’t do) that.  But I could, and do, UNDERSTAND why it’s done

I also agree with there being as much ‘dross’ today as there was before.  It is possible that fanfic trends that the OP likes are currently more common in the ebb and flow of trends and tropes, but that has less to do with the site and time and more to do with the pendulam effect or ‘tides’ effect.  however that doesn’t mean that ‘fanfics are better’… it just means ‘things that person A likes are more common’.

But I still LOVE how AO3 is set up predominantly around the AUTHOR rather than the reader…  that is something VERY awesome that I am so very glad to see, and I hope we see more of it moving forward

It’s entirely possible that OP was well-meaning!! I wasn’t trying to take shots at their character; that’s why I said they were “being an ass” on that particular post, haha. But regardless of intent, a lot of it came across entitled, a lot of it seemed kind of clueless to the trends and shifts in fanfiction/fandom culture, and a lot of it was just kind of obnoxious. But hey, most normal folks don’t ruminate on how polite our tone sounds when ranting on tumblr, so while I maintain they were an ass on that post, I don’t think they were doing it intentionally. 

One of the things that sets AO3 apart from ff.net (apart from way more aesthetically pleasing interface) is the fact that it’s author-centered. But personally?? I never really had a problem with ff.net being more about the readers. I think each fanfic author has their own view of their readership– some feel beholden to them, some appreciate them and live for their approval, and some enjoy the good stuff but don’t care much either way. I fell more into the third category when I wrote consistently. I do know lots of people who are d e v a s t a t e d when they don’t get as many reviews/kudos/hits/whatever as they feel they deserve, and I know people who insist that it’s nbd but actually fanfic klout is their ~lifeblood~. But that’s a topic we could go into without putting in the context of fanfiction alone, much less narrowing it to a pissing contest between AO3 and ff.net!! 

The main thing that frustrates me is how quickly people forget what things were like a decade ago. I can only imagine what fandom and fanfiction was like pre-Harry Potter, since I was either too young for fandom or little more than an oocyte. AO3 fics seem to reflect fandom culture and interest today, while ff.net was always more chaotic and less homogenous. But ff.net was also the birthplace (for me at least, but please remember I’m 23 so my experience is only a little over a decade) of many of the norms we see, not just in fanfiction, but in rp, meta, AU, etc. And since the ff.net interface is kinda inefficient, the ff.net norms stayed on ff.net, which makes them seem out of date now that we have multiple platforms for fandom. AO3 streamlined the fanfiction aspect. Since many of the people that are apparently quite taken with AO3 are around my age, it is reasonable to conclude that they are either ignorant of or unwilling to learn the context behind why ff.net is the way it is. Those who started reading fanfic around 10 like me seem to have short memories, and those who started reading in their teens and adulthood sort of missed that whole ff.net phenomenon. 

Anyway, I agree with you on the whole citrus gradation, and some of the terms ff.net brought about. And I certainly agree with you on your bit about how OP probably likes the current trends of fanfics, which is reflected in what they read on AO3. I just am frustrated when people insist that “x-new-thing” is soooo much better than its predecessor, when both New Thing and Predecessor have many of the same pros and cons. The wheel wasn’t reinvented; it just…. got new rims. 

A little note to the anti Jaqen/Arya people...

This post goes to those people who don’t like the Jaqen/Arya ship (meaning: older!Arya/Jaqen). I get it, I understand that you don’t like the ship. It’s fine! We all have a ship that we don’t like. I can live with you not liking the ship.

What bothers me is when I see people insulting the Jaqen/Arya shippers and writers, and when I see people leaving reviews demanding for the writers to stop writing fanfiction about that ship.

And in most cases, the reason for why the people get so annoyed and angry and disgusted with fanfics in which this ship appears is this: that Jaqen/Arya is OOC and will never ever happen in the books/show and therefore they should not be featured in fanfiction.

……………….

Guys, how long have you been reading fanfiction? No one can ever say that a ship can’t be shipped because they are unrealistic. No one. About any ship. Ever.

I know, you can hate the ship. I hate many ships myself, despise them! I just don’t read stuff about them. And if that ship happens to be in the same fic as the ship that I do like, then I suck it up and read about them without insulting the writer. 

Fanfiction is not a novel. It’s exactly that, fan fiction, in which everything can happen! And all the ships can be shipped! All of them!

For example, I’ve been reading fanfiction for about eight years now (and I’m 18. Believe me, fanfiction ruined my childhood pretty bad) and I’ve seen the craziest things ever written in the Internet,

Do you want to talk about weird and impossible ships that should never happen, but nevertheless, they do? I’ve seen no one complain about many of them, but you do complain a lot about Jaqen/Arya! Impossible, you say…

THESE are impossible! (Notice that most of them are from the Harry Potter fandom. I love the Harry Potter fandom, HP is my life, but its fanfiction gives me nightmares.)

  • Harry/Voldemort. Talk about impossible!!!

  • Snape/Hermione. Yeah, right… In my opinion they are disgusting, but the fanfiction is amazing!!!!!

  • Voldemort/Hermione. I think Harry/Voldemort actually has a chance compared to this ship… They do have some adorable ff anyways… 

  • Harry/Bellatrix. ………………

  • Drarry (Draco/Harry). THIS ONE IS EVERYWHERE!!!!!!! AND PEOPLE LOVE IT!!!!! PLEASE TELL ME IF THAT SHIP IS RATIONAL AT ALL!!!!!! IT ISN’T!!!!!!! HOW ABOUT THAT FOR OOC, JAQEN/ARYA HATERS?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

And then there’s the impossible ship that is the biggest OOC ever and still I absolutely adore…

  • Dramione (Draco/Hermione). My heart explodes with happiness every time I see a fanfic of those two, and I couldn’t give any less fucks about how absolutely ooc they are!

Now let’s take a look at other fandoms with equally OOC fanfiction that seems to be very popular and no one complains about… At this moment I can remember three particular ships:

  • Regina/Emma Swan. Da fuc? But people are having fun with it, so ok…

  • Dean/Sam. Ha… ha… ha… No comments.

  • Robb/Jon. Where did that even come from?!?!?!

This said, I hope I have made myself clear…

FANFICTION IS ABOUT OOC! OOC SHIPS EVERYWHERE! IMPOSSIBLE COUPLES AND SHIPS EVERYWHERE!

AND SOME LIKE THOSE SHIPS AND READ THE FANFICTION AND OTHERS DON’T! BUT IF YOU DON’T LIKE A SHIP, SHUT THE HELL UP AND ALLOW PEOPLE TO SHIP THEIR SHIPS!

At least Jaqen and Arya showed some kind of mutual interest in the book/show! Not sexual, i agree, but there was something there! An understanding! An attraction to the qualities of each other! And when Arya grows up and hormones kick in, I guess she would love to shag this hot piece of ass.

And, let’s be real. Jaqen/older!Arya would be less OOC than Tywin Lannister screwing Shae…

… And (SPOILERS!) may I remind you, Tywin did screw Shae.

anonymous asked:

as the most popular fan fiction writer in the fandom are your really complaining that you are getting people wanting you to write more? The fandom has put you on a pedestal because you have talent, and imo it seems like you bite off more than you can chew sometimes, with Vegas, BIn, ATWFL, Summer Camp, you made the fandom all these promises of regular updates and Sneak Peeks. don't want to pressure of being a popular writer, step back then let other writers share some of the limelight.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, back up. I did not complain that people want me to continue writing or want to see more of my work. I’m assuming this is about the post I made last night about people leaving reviews complaining about how long they’ve been waiting for updates, and let me be clear on one thing – I don’t mind a polite message in my inbox asking when one can expect the next update of something. That’s fine. And most of the time, I will politely respond back with my best estimate at the moment.


What I mind is “When are u going to update a new chapter I have been waiting for ages” which is word for word the review that inspired that post. That’s the whole review. A demand and a complaint about how long I’ve taken to update this particular story. A story I updated 12 days ago, with another update to a different story in the meantime, as well as a one-shot (and, if you follow me here on tumblr, 3 additional sneak peeks for other stories) in that span of time. At minimum, that’s 3 pieces I’ve published in 12 days if you’re only on FFnet, and 6 in 12 days if you’re here on tumblr. That certainly qualifies as making regular updates. So yes, I did complain that someone felt the need to go out of their way and make a review that basically amounts to “can you hurry it up, I’m waiting.” 


That’s not about “the pressure of being a popular writer,” that’s about people being rude and unrealistic about the amount of time it actually takes for people to create content and put it out for you guys. I like enthusiasm, I like that people want more. What I don’t like is when people are rude about it.  I get that people are waiting. I know what it’s like to wait - I have stories that I am constantly hoping for updates on, stories that I get all giddy about as soon as I see the update email in my inbox. I get that feeling. We’re all in the same boat here. 


But writing takes a lot of time, and it’s something that those of us who write fic have to squeeze in around everything else that we do. Most readers are really good about understanding that. But sometimes people are jerks, and they’re not understanding about such things, and they come into your inbox with comments like “I’ve been waiting for ages” and then you get annoyed. Because no, you haven’t been waiting for ages. You haven’t even been waiting for two weeks. Take a chill pill, and wait a little longer, and I will provide you with more of the free content you are so eagerly making grabby hands for. 


Not sure about your claim that I am “the most popular fan fiction writer in the fandom” - I’m assuming by that you mean the OQ fandom and not fandom in general, and there are PLENTY of other OQ writers, who are EXTREMELY popular, who churn out great content regularly, and who show up on pretty much everyone’s OQ rec lists. I don’t think I hold a unique place in the fandom in that regard. I’m one of many, and I don’t think anyone really holds the “top spot.” And as for “sharing the limelight,” if there even is such a thing, I promote the heck out of my fellow OQ writers. I reblog fic pretty much daily. If there is such a thing as a fanfic limelight, and it’s something I benefit from, I am shoving other folks into it on the regular.


So yeah, in conclusion… 

Just for the record the gag orders and temporary funding freezes on departments during transition are not really unusual for an incoming administration, nor is declaring your inauguration day a holiday. Pres. Obama did the same things 8 years ago. Don’t waste energy freaking out about them.

Demanding a complete review of the EPA’s activities and bullying and imprisoning members of the press ARE unusual. As well as, of course, the horrendous policies we all knew were coming (the wall, the Muslim immigration ban, the hiring freeze, the “First Amendment Defense Act,” and whatever fresh hell his staff is cooking up.) You should definitely be freaking out about that.

Tumblr: this movie that portrays almost entirely thin white cis women in a default violently misogynistic society is ~feminist~!

me: 

The Awful Daring: 3.2

summary: She doesn’t see that all along, what he wanted was her. Her, not a perfect wife. Just Sakura. — SasuSaku, AU. 

// previous - masterpost

In France, she’d asked him once if he thought they were going to be happy.  He’d quieted her with a kiss, the movement of his mouth an echo of the waves breaking against the rocky shore, steady and inexorable.


Sasuke is generally perceived as a man of few words; someone who makes his intent known through his actions and not what he does or does not say. Those actually close to the Uchiha know that it’s really a matter of evasion and misdirection. Naruto used to joke that the “chicken-haired bastard” would have made a great ninja during Nippon’s great Sengoku days.

But Sakura had figured out that it was something else entirely: Sasuke had learned to be silent back when every word he’d said was measured against his brother’s and always found lacking.

She’d adopted the same habit during their marriage without ever realizing it.

Guess what reviews like this make me NOT want to do!

“Trying to be patient”

Sorry that I’m not cranking out the free work you think you’re entitled to any faster. 

I’m a writer and a person, not a machine.

Chapter 699 and 700 Review

I can’t believe I’m still doing this. We all know what my opinion is.

  • Chapter 699

The definite better of the two, that’s for sure. Really this chapter is pretty solid… except for the Sasuke & Sakura parts. I will say this only once:

Saying sorry does not fix everything.

There are tons of shit that Sasuke has done to Sakura that is unforgivable. Especially that genjutsu. That right there should’ve been the six millionth red flag for Sakura to give up on Sasuke and the fact that she didn’t is insulting to pretty much everyone reading.This is the lesson I’m going to fucking learn from that BS:

It is okay to be called annoying multiple times. be under the target of multiple assassination attempts of, be pushed aside by my crush in favor of his male best friend, and told that my crush has no romantic interest in me because in the end, my crush will say he’s sorry and will fall in love me and we’ll marry despite all the logical evidence that shows that we shouldn’t be, and have a kid and become a housewife because it’s not like I have no other ambition than being such.

Sakura has been a character I have had severe ups-and-downs with and this is, by far, the lowerst down. Fuck this character.

Also, the last panel is total proof that Naruto has been safe-keeping Sasuke’s headband. I actually wonder if that headband is actually a promise between them both that Sasuke will come back.

All in all, it’s an okay chapter and for NH fans-

I don’t give a shit if your “romantic” couple is standing next to each other. Kakashi and Sakura have stood next to each other how many times alone in this chapter? Yeah, I thought so.

(AND WHERE THE FUCK IS SAI.)

Now on to the next-

  • Chapter 700

There is no chapter 700 review because I don’t review complete and utter bullshit. Fuck off with that bullshit “epilogue” that is oh-so obviously catering to Het shippers wet dreams.

anonymous asked:

Ok.. I'm feeling like a super jerk. I'm reading a story. The story is amazing. The story is finished. BUT I'm reading the A/N and I found that while they were writing said story, they demanded so many reviews before they posted the next chapter. This seriously.. just.. ruined it.'

You kind of are a super jerk.

This writer used his or her free time to write a story, which they posted for you to read for free on the internet. And it’s good.  You call it amazing.  And they only ask that in return for the many, many hours they spent writing the story, which did I mention no one made you read and which was posted for free, you, the reader, add an extra 30 seconds to your reading of the chapter to type in a review.

“I’m really enjoying this!  Thank you!”

What a burden this person, who wrote and shared for free, had the nerve to place on you.   

Approximately 1% of readers review while a story is in progress.  The rate goes down once a work is completed.    0.6% of the time someone reads a chapter in Rebuilding they review.    It’s 0.2% for Green Girl.  0.6% for Pygmalion.  2% for No Greater Love (my great success).  Writers STOP WRITING because of readers like you, who want to consume content without ever stopping to thank or acknowledge the person whose hard work they are enjoying.  You want to know a major reason works get abandoned?  Because people like you, who can’t be bothered to take a handful of seconds to type in, “I’m so enjoying this! Thanks!”

If you expect me to give you sympathy because a writer wanted people to review, to let her know she wasn’t just dropping words out into an uncaring void, you’ve come to the wrong person.

Go back and leave review.  “This is amazing!  Thanks for writing and sharing it!”  It would have taken you a lot less time to do that than to come whinging to me that the artist who shared her work wanted acknowledgment, it would have encouraged someone whose work you say was ‘amazing’, and would have made you someone who contributed to building up the fandom.  

“I so want Disney to at least make a bit of merch for all of their movies that at least got good reviews. If ‘demands determines supply’, why is there nearly nothing for Tiana, nothing for Atlantis or Treasure Planet, Wreck It Ralph or Mulan? Even if it is primarily adults who like it, even a tsum tsum line, doll or other cheap merch to purchase would be great. A lot of adult fanbases are quite large, and surely if kids didn’t want it, adults would and make it worthwhile. I know I’d buy it all!”
