Okay, is there a way to search your blog for only the posts that you created?
I have not always been very good about tagging things properly. Hell, I still suck at it; but there are things that I posted like a year or two ago that I would like to find again, but I post so much in a day, that even going through the archive is super slow and pointless. So– is there a better way? Is there some hack to filter through this chaos, or am I just doomed to sift through it until I’m 80 years old and no longer capable of remembering why I started looking in the first place?
After almost a month and a half, I’m proud to present the results for the survey I conducted at the start of January. A huge thank you to everyone who took the time to participate and share it with your friends! I hope you all know now that there are at least another 1069 people out there waiting for you to become friends with, so let’s all become closer as a fandom! ╰(*´︶`*)╯♡ Click on the individual pictures for high res.

I’m being quite sad to see how my newest fandom seems to be so short in reviewing fanfics.
I do wonder if the whole “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything” mindset doesn’t have the perverted effect that now people think “I just can’t think of anything nice enough to say!!! I loved it but I’m too shy to just go wax poetry because I thought there was some flaws/or I’m just too shy and afraid to make compliments”.
Thing is, reviews and comments don’t have to be 100% positive all the time. On the contrary, some negative comments and reviews can be actually VERY helping !
So here’s a little cheat sheet to go through after you read a fic/chapter to help you write a review without being an asshole :
Did you like the story that is being told ? if yes, say so. If no and you didn’t clicked out, ask yourself why you kept reading (aside from “i wanted to see how far this trainwreck would go”) and say so.
Did you like the writing style and skills of the author ? if yes, say so. If no, and you didn’t clicked out, ask yourself why you kept reading, and say so.
Did you like how the characters were portrayed ? if yes, say so. If no, and you didn’t clicked out, ask yourself why you kept reading, and say so.
Are you curious about what is coming next ? if yes, say so. If no, consider it a click out.
Did you feel anything while reading ? If yes, say so. Even the tiniest feeling of “I spent a nice few minutes/hours thanks to this fic” is worth you writing it down for the author. Pain, joy, anger, fear, anxiety, curiosity, anything beside complete uninterested and lethargic catatony, in its tiniest sparks, is worth you writing it down for the author. If no and you didn’t clicked out, ask yourself why you kept reading, and say so.
If you can answer at least one “yes” to one of those 5 questions, you have something to say in a review and you should write it and send it to the author.
I don’t have the full story and I refuse to pry further because that just spreads possible misinformation but from what I understand
A player has potentially (I say potentially because the name is not going around, but that doesn’t make it any less severe) been outed as queer by a partner
This. Is. So. Fucked.
Period. End of sentence.
Like I don’t care if you think “well they were on x dating app, they had to see this as a possibility”
Sharing any sort of information from any sexual partner on social media is disgusting, disrespectful, and wrong. I don’t care if they’re it’s a regular person, a pro-athlete, or the fuckin Queen of England. Posting anything online that you have not been given explicit consent, by every party involved, to post is wrong and straight up illegal.
This is not me defending whatever player this is. This is me defending the fucking personal privacy of another human being.
If you think anything to the contrary or think that this was okay on even a microscopic level you can fuck right off
