its really unfair I write fanfic and it gets basically no attention at all and I see yours and it has hundreds of comments???howis your fic so popular
I feel this a lot tbh because before EtV none of my fics got much recognition
I think it’s a mixture of our weekly and predictable update schedule which has been continuing on since literally May last year, which draws people in basically on a weekly basis as they discover the fic through different ways - and also the fact that Ronnie (@sockseevil) has had quite a few very popular fics so we might still be riding on the coattails of that one. We also have had illustrations (and pretty amazing ones at that!) since the very start which will lure people in additionally.
Also, about two thirds of the comments on Ao3 are either from us, replying to comments, or from the same 2-3 people commenting on almost every new chapter.
I mean, there’s also always a bunch of luck involved and I’m sorry your fics haven’t gotten much attention.
I dunno man but I for one am hecka grateful for our loyal fanbase. <3
i found out my boss is gay today and he seemed very excited to tell me because he never talks about it and he told me because we were having a conversation about pride and homophobia and etv etc and he “didnt want to sound like a straight guy overstepping his bounds”
he was like “you know i have a boyfriend…. i never talk about it….” and i was like ;____; he is my family now
