Truth about fandoms

YOU there! Yes, you who is reading this right now while procrastinating again. I have something to tell you!

It doesn’t matter which fandom you are a part of. 

It doesn’t matter if you are an observer like me, where you like to stalk the fandom and obsesses over any little piece of art or fiction.

Or if you are a creator, who writes beautiful fiction, draws amazing images, dedicates hours to a blog about your fandom, or even if you just create those gifs that everyone uses.

It doesn’t matter who you are, what fandom you are a part of, who you ship or ever how much you know about your fandom.

              The most beautiful truth about fandoms.

Is that no matter what, someone will always be there for you. All you need to do is ask. 

           Because in a fandom family, YOU are never alone.

So please, if you ever feel lonely, if you feel like you need someone to talk to because you feel like no one understands or gets you, reach out to members in your fandom. They are the sweetest, most caring individuals ever, and I promise you won’t ever have to feel like you’re alone again.

And if you are one of those beautiful people who happens to receive a message from someone, I plead with you to speak to them. We are a family, and family doesn't get left behind.

It is becoming too much of a regular occurrence that I find out someone in one of my fandoms felt as if there was no one ever there for them and ended up taking their own life. I don’t think anyone ever deserves to feel like that, and I really hope that you message someone if you need them. Hell, message me if you like. 

But remember, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. And you deserve to smile.

A letter to every fanfiction author

Yes, this post is for you, the person who just spent another night writing a chapter for their fanfiction, writing for hours for those hungry fans who are following your work. 

This goes out to those amazing fanfiction authors who write amazing pieces of work. You have an amazing plot, beautiful descriptions and your characters are always perfectly in character. Reminding us all of the stories we love so much.

You make me laugh out loud. You make me cringe in embarrassment. You even make me mad enough to rant for hours.

But then, with your beautiful words and imagery, you make me sad. 

You make me cry and scream for those characters I love. You make me want to throw my tablet across the room while still wanting to hold it tightly to my chest. You make me feel emotions for these characters, emotions only the true creators have managed to pull from me.

Why would you do this? Why break my heart into a million pieces and throw them to the wind to scatter my sadness around? I’m sure it hurts you more to create these stories. To see those characters you have loved, just as much as I, hurt or get hurt. It must break you bit by bit to write the words to complete that one scene.

But also, thank you. Thank you for the beautiful story you crafted for hours. And thank you for making me feel those beautiful emotions. Thank you for letting me live with these characters for a little while longer.
