Weekly Reading List #41

Originally posted by friendsthetvshow

Hello there!

Finally, here is my (absolutely belated) Weekly Reading List. I’m sorry, if you gonna find a lot of mistakes or if you just can’t make any sense out of these words, I’m so tired thanks to work and since Saturday one day was worse than the other, so I’m afraid I can’t think straight anymore… I hope I linked every story in this post I read since the last list. I’ve read a lot, I think, but I need to mention, that you all are incredible creative at the moment, ‘cause I don’t have any “normal” post on my dashboard, one fanfiction follows the other and I use the Like button for every one of them to read them later on, but it’s been so much lately, that I don’t know where to start. I can’t keep up at all! But I’m planning on using my free weekend (just two more days, *squeaking*) to read, the weather report says it’s gonna be a shitty weekend, compared to the last days, so I hope to find time to lay down and just read, not doing anything else… Does anything of this even make sense? I can’t follow myself… Well, one last thing. I know that I linked a lot of Bucky stories. I can’t tell you why, it’s not that I don’t like him, I just don’t have that huge of a crush on him than on the other characters I like to read. But that’s what I’ve got mostly on my dashboard and it would be a waste not to read it ;) Okay, that’s enough for now, have a great (rest) week and be prepared to get my next list on sunday!

Enjoy and have fun!

Affirmations for fanfic authors

It’s okay to take a break.
- We all need time to recharge, and your fans will still be there when you get back!

It’s okay to go from fandom to fandom.
- Nobody is going to criticize you for following your muse, and if they do, then you know who not to associate with in the future!

It’s okay to have a niche.
- If smut is where it’s at, then write smut. If you’re all about the fluff, then schmoop away. If angst is what does it for you, then invest in tissues. Nobody has the right to tell you that you should be doing something else if that isn’t what interests you!

It’s okay to be critical of your own work.
- Just don’t allow yourself to become so self-deprecating that you freeze!

It’s okay to ask for help.
- If you’re unsure of a trope, concept, fact or universe, reach out to your circle of friends. Chances are, they’ll be more than happy to help you because they want to see you succeed!

It’s okay to ignore criticism.
- Constructive criticism is only constructive if it helps you. If someone says something that doesn’t assist or improve you in any way, then please feel free to ignore whatever nugget they are imparting, because chances are good they don’t have the best of intentions for you!

It’s okay to stop writing all together.
- Your fans will miss you (and chances are good you have way more than you realize,) but sometimes, you just gotta do you!

It’s okay to write with whatever method works for you.
- Long writing marathons where you bang out 12,000 words in one day? Great! Linear, dry style that means you occassionally get stuck because you can’t figure out this scene, but it’s all worth it in the end? Rad! Piecemeal work that you thread together at the end? Fabulous! As long as it works for you, there is no wrong way to write!

It’s okay to have fun.
- I think this goes without saying, no? But it seems that sometimes, authors need permission. So consider this permission to wile the hell out, and enjoy the ride!

Does anybody else remember a time, long long ago, when you could just enjoy things?

You could watch a movie and just appreciate it instead of over analyzing every single scene to make sure there’s nothing remotely offensive about it.

You could have a favorite character and just like them and appreciate how great they were written and portrayed, without being told you’re terrible because they’re a villain. Even though they’re FICTIONAL and most likely were deliberately written to be likable. (Even if they were written as an evil character, I still think you have a right to like them, but maybe that’s just me)

You could love and be a fan of the actors without having to go full on FBI agent, looking into their backgrounds to make sure they are 100% perfect and had never made a mistake ever.

You could post about said actor without some busybody little fandom cop, slithering into your inbox to tell you(all too happily) that your fave is “problematic” (god, I fucking hate that word), and you’re disgusting if you still like them.

I’m in my 30’s so I remember those good ole days and it’s kind of sad to know, that most of you will never truly know how great that was. That’s a time long since forgotten. Bummer.

Sorry, I want to follow you but I'm a bit worried. You're not an anti, right? I'm a shaladin shipper so I wouldn't like to mistakenly follow an anti, even if they draw really pretty art (antis are scary, and mean)

I’m not quite sure what characters are all involved in the shaladin ship, but you are completely safe here. (And I’m a bit shocked that you think I’m maybe an anti, since I can’t remember that I said something against any ship.) I just stick to one ship per character and would call myself a “single”-shipper (not sure if I made it up or it is actually a term xD) but I would say it’s the counterpart to a multi-shipper!! 

I’ve made a little guide with my lovely voltron babies ~ ♥ 

Well since I’m not a multi-shipper I could be wrong but I think it is somehow like that ^^. It doesn’t mean they love all ships, they see more ships than just one or two.

The Many Faces of Yuuri Katsuki - Episode 7

And so we make it to the episode that changed everything. There’s a lot I could say but I’ll keep it short by only pointing out a couple things. The first is that even though this is a Yuuri-centric gifset, there ended up being a fairly large Victor presence in this one (the man just creeps into your life and is a permanent fixture before you even notice!). The second is that you’ll notice both times Yuuri charges off the ice to meet Victor, he’s met with a surprise. The natures of both surprises are a bit different though. ;)

Bonus because how can we leave out the 4F that changed everything:

everyone who reblogs this will get a custom phone background! because i’m trying to get this blog up and running. if you reblog, just describe what kind of background you want in the tags! if you don’t want anything specific, i’ll also do one inspired by your blog!
