done with it

‘Time Travel’ isn’t what anyone would traditionally consider a road trip, but in terms of going far from home and finding something you didn’t know you were looking for, it totally counts.

Which is why I’m counting this as an entry in Mcreyes Summer Break organized by @mcreyesevents because I need to post this (and I need to make this wild west time travel au happen goddammit)

No offence but I don't think it's really fair to just stop writing because you feel like it in the middle of a series. If you have factors that need to taken care of before you write again then sure, take your time and rest,recharge or whatever you have to do to get better. But when you share your works onto a public forum there's a responsibilty to your followers and the people you love and read your work to do your best to finish it. If you honestly just can't that's fine but it isn't moral to

just randomly stop one day because you just felt like it - not fair on the people who have supported you so far. Everyone should try their best and you can’t finish everything is true. Fandom not being an obligation is also true but you do have some responsibilty in finishing what you started for the people who love your work. It’s understandable that you may not finish everything and may have to let some pieces go, but that doesn’t mean that you can just randomly stop one day bc you don’t want    

The writer does have the best judgement in the end but sometimes it can be really unfair on the people who loved and supported various works only to have them stopped because the person couldn’t be bothered to finish it anymore… it’s a really sad feeling.            

No offense, but is this a joke? When these messages popped up in my inbox I literally had to take a whole 5 minutes to collect myself before even thinking of replying. Like for once I am shocked and speechless that someone could be so openly self-entitled and greedy toward fic writers. I mean, it’s not like we don’t get enough shit at the bottom of the barrel as content creators, but lets add on rude and demanding readers while we’re at it. And if it seems like I am being a bitch right now then I apologize and I do not mean for this to come across as aggressive even though having this kind of attitude toward fic writers is what makes them want to stop writing altogether.

Writers do not have a responsibility toward anyone except themselves, and that responsibility is to do what they love and what makes them happy. I’m sorry but… are you paying for fics? I don’t think so. I’m pretty sure we are all here doing this for free because it brings us happiness so who are you to say we actually OWE you something when it is 100% free entertainment? It’s your choice to read, to support, to leave a like or comment, and we appreciate it greatly but it gives no one a right to demand things from us and finish things as if we owe it to you because you took 5 seconds to like or a minute to comment when we can spend days, weeks, or months producing one update.

Do you know how hard it is to write in the first place? I imagine you probably have never created a piece of fiction in your life, otherwise you would understand the time, the effort, the energy, the patience, and the little pieces of ourselves we put into stories. It’s a lot of work and it’s a lot more work than anyone that doesn’t write realizes. So add all of that onto a fic we might not feel inspired by anymore and really, what’s the point? It becomes stressful, exhausting, wracking our brains and feeling guilty because we can’t finish something we once loved and put so much attention and time into. Do you think we just go all willy-nilly hopping from one fic to the next not caring if we don’t finish? Do you even know how heartbreaking it is to not find motivation to go through with a story we care about? But all you can think about is how we better finish it because we OWE you, regardless if it’s tiring or stressful when we reach this point. Nope. I don’t think so.

Also, if we want to talk about what’s UNFAIR, we can talk about how much time, effort, energy, and thought went into an update for it to get no feedback after the reader skims it for 10 minutes and then demands an update. Not even bothering to like, or reblog, or leave even a detailed comment about the story… just read as fast as you can and then expect an update. And since you forgot to mark one of your messages as anon, I’m well aware that you’re not one that typically likes or reblogs fics since I have never seen your username before… yet you have the nerve to come in my inbox and act like this, talking about what’s unfair and WE have a responsibility to YOU. Do you not feel like YOU have a responsibility as well, or is this just one-sided because any writer that discontinues a fic for whatever reason is being unfair. 

Now, I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt. Maybe you really didn’t know how selfish this sounds and how hurtful it is to writers, so I am letting you know now. A writer can stop writing if they want to, whether it be lack of motivation, stress in their personal life, demanding readers getting on their last nerve, or because the sky is blue. Who cares? Enjoy what they gave you to read and move on. You didn’t take time to write the fic, they did. You get absolutely no say in what they do or don’t write and again, I apologize if this comes off as aggressive but comments like these are the quickest way to get under my skin. Have some consideration and understand that by “supporting your writer” you don’t give them shit if they suddenly can’t write a story anymore and you don’t make them feel guilty about it, calling it unfair, because they most likely already feel bad enough they couldn’t complete it.

“less” is for things that are measurable but not countable, mass nouns

“fewer” is for things that are countable

less fighting, fewer fights

I don’t know why the fuck we make this distinction for less and fewer but not for more

if anyone who reads this remembers and uses it I will not have lived entirely in vain
