(a) i love your ask header (b) for fic questions! if you haven't answered them yet: 10, 14, 21, 32, 51! <3
Thank you Dicta! 14 and 21 are answered but here are the rest,
10. Is there a fandom you read fic from but don’t write in?
It takes a long time for me to get used to characters enough to feel comfortable writing them, so anything beside HP goes at this point? I read from Check Please and Yuri on Ice, but i haven’t gotten the courage to try out writing them yet.
32. Do you listen to music when you write or does music inspire you? If so, which band or genre of music does it for you?
I absolutely can’t listen to music when i write, it kills my focus terribly and hinders my translation abilities. Music does inspire me though, i usually like electropop, dream pop, some folk, alt rock and pop rock i guess?
51. Rant or Gush about one thing you love or hate in the world of fanfiction! Go!
Is it surprising that i’m gonna choose to rant? Let me unload some salt. Lately i’ve been seeing a lot posts scorning “bad fics”, which is really bothering me. Every author improves by practice. We all begin our writing process from a starting point, none of us came out as perfect authors, you know? Talking down beginner authors like this is discouraging them from actually sharing their work, and some others from writing at all. I feel like some of us should take a step back, and realize that this attitude is actually causing a decrease in fan works they consume daily. The authors don’t owe us anything, they’re sharing their work for free and the least we can do is show some respect to that.
