Hi I'm sorry if this sounds rude but you mentioned your friends are giving up fic writing? And that you came close to.I notice writers get much fewer rebblogs than artists but I didn't know it's that bad. Who are you talking about and do you guys talk about this, like is there a chatroom for writers?

Hi anon! This isn’t rude at all, don’t worry! This is going to be a bit of a long answer, so bear with me :’)

I don’t know if I can mention names here, I don’t want to make anyone uncomfortable, so I can’t really give you more details than I already have: I am friends with this person and they probably won’t be writing fanfics anymore.
I can tell you though that I’ve also spent most of the last couple of weeks wondering if there was still a point in posting my writing at all.

The thing is, writers barely get any feedback. Especially ones that aren’t insanely popular. We pour so much of ourselves into our writing, so it’s incredibly discouraging to barely get any comments, kudos, likes or reblogs.

In my personal experience, tumblr is an awful place for writers. I’ve got a decent-sized following on ao3 I think (though I don’t have much to compare to) and even there, with more than 100 people subscribed to me, I only tend to get around… 5 or 6 comments max per fic that are actually reviews (as in, comments with more content than “please update soon” or “this was nice”) - which is already more than I know many of my writer friends get.
On tumblr, I’m lucky if two or three people reblog my work, and that’s exactly the problem: Who’s going to see it if no one reblogs it? Likes are fine and of course I appreciate those, too, but in the bigger picture they’re meaningless.
Once a fic is done, it’s done. It’s out there then, and I can’t keep reblogging my own posts again and again in the hopes that someone will pay attention to them. I get one shot, maybe two if I reblog my fic again for people in other timezones, but that’s pretty much it. I’m not surprised that it’s gotten so frustrating that it makes people want to quit.

…as for your other question - I don’t know if there’s any larger chatroom or space for writers. I know some people have group chats, but it’s mostly a private thing, as far as I know? I’m really not a big name in this fandom so there might be a lot of stuff going on that I don’t know about.

As for me - I just message people a lot, with the tumblr feature, or on skype or snapchat if I know them better. I’m open to any and all conversations (most of mine with other writers started by me yelling at them about how much I love their work ^^), so if you want to talk to me please don’t hesitate to shoot me a message. That’s what they’re for, after all? My ask’s always open, and I don’t mind private messages either.

In any case - there’s quite a few people in my immediate vicinity that I’ve talked to and I consider friends - many of them are writers, some are artists, some do both, some do neither. I talk about this problem (of wanting to write, but barely receiving any feedback, of feeling like we’re wasting our time) to pretty much anyone who will listen, but it’s frustrating because I don’t have the influence to change anything. Of course I’ll try to keep my fellow writers motivated and try to change their minds about giving up, but there’s only so much I can do, and in the end it’s their decision. Most writers I’ve talked to really enjoy writing fanfics, and it takes quite a bit of disappointment to get you to the point where you want to just… stop. So… yes, it’s a big problem.

I’m going to wrap this up now, but… again, I cannot emphasize enough how important comments are to writers. I’ve talked to some people who’ve said they’re not sure if their comments will even make a difference, because they feel they haven’t got anything interesting to say - picture it this way. As a writer, I’m standing on a stage and presenting a thing, and in response, about twenty people give me polite nods (kudos, likes) and four actually start clapping. But there’s like two hundred people (hits) standing in this room, and I kind of feel stupid now.
All comments matter. At this point, they might save you your writers. Because with less and less feedback, there’s less and less incentive to actually post things.

I can’t say much for other fandoms because it’s been a while since I’ve written substantially for anything but Haikyuu, which is still a relatively active fandom? But I get the feeling that’s starting to wear off, too.

Enthusiasm shifts, and I get that. But if you still enjoy an author’s work, please, please, by all means leave them a comment. Otherwise it might be the last work you read from them.


I know… He did the same thing.

About season 3

Alright, I assume not many people, if any, will read it, especially since I wont talk about ships like Klance, Kallura, Sheith, Shatt etc …

But these thoughts have been trotting in my head since season 2 came out, and beyond, and I need to write them down and share them somewhere. But if you don’t mind  reading a french gal rambling on about stuff, then be my guest.

WARNING : kinda long and kinda not organised, at all. I have also never thought up “theories” for a show before.

First : Shiro and the rebels.

So, assuming that Shiro reunites with Matt and helps the rebels, how did he get there ?

I have no logical idea. The best thing I got is that maybe the rebels have a genius in their rank (or a machine) who figured out a way to capture Zarkon by using his bayard. As we can see in the new teaser, some people in the universe still know about Voltron, and I guess the rebels know about it too, and know that Zarkon has a bayard.

Let’s imagine for a moment, that they are waiting for Zarkon to use his bayard, for some reason they can read how much energy it gives out or something like that, and use it to teleport it’s bearer, but it always fails because it doesn’t give out enough power or something. But then Shiro gets a hold of it and uses it to activate the blazing sword. I guess this would release enough energy, and he would be teleported into a cage or whatever the rebellion built to keep Zarkon in.

Just imagine the rebels’ faces when they capture a human instead of the galra emperor. Bonus points if Matt is there and almost faints when he recognizes Shiro.

Then again, they probably just found him unconscious on some random planet or something.

Keep reading

Ok I know you surely don't really care about that or that it was just a simple post but I've seen lots of people writing "omelette du fromage"... and as a French, I can't understand that because that's totally wrong and people are stuck with this way of saying it , it's actually "omelette au fromage" ("au" prononced like a simple "o".) We're kind enough to try to learn English and make long texts so I'm a bit bothered people say it wrong, 3 words are not that much to learn =/

omg are you talking about this tweet i made ???

it’s a reference to dexter’s lab ….. where dexter “learns french” and the joke is that the french is wrong lol

reellement …. j’ai appris le francais a l’ecole depuis j’avais 6 ans, parce que je suis canadienne lol j’espere que tu comprends maintenant ………

this has nothing to do with anything but in case anyone was wondering one of the worst experiences of my life was playing a drinking game with this girl who was Obsessed with taylor swift so made us all go round and name her songs and the first person who couldn’t think of one had to down their drink

and i was like ??? this is unfair who even likes taylor swift not me that’s who

but when my turn came round i said ‘i’d lie’ because it was one i knew that no one had said yet and as it turns out that’s like. an unreleased track from like 2007 or some shit so she was Convinced that i was secretly really Really into taylor swift because how fucking obscure is that

and like. it was on an e/R playlist one time. that was how i knew it. because someone heard this obscure tswift track and was like ‘shit that’s about this fictional dead 19th century french boy’s unrequited love’ and like. how do i possibly explain that to people i barely know. so i had to just laugh awkwardly and deal with the label of secret taylor swift groupie

The positive thoughts I had started having towards Harry and his album after his french thing yesterday have been successfully destroyed cause of these tweets. Like at this point I don't even care if they make Harry talk about the boys/the band or make him tweet 'Larry is real'. Nothing is going to make me get excited for Harry's album if it's not babygate ending. So continue flopping, Sony, until you end it.

that’s the thing like sony’s built up so much fandom resentment because of babygate that even the smallest thing (like these tweets) is enough to rapidly evaporate any goodwill they might have previously won back (like w/the french interview yesterday).

i feel bad for harry because it’s not his fault that this shit is still dragging on but he’s also being represented by the major player behind most of our rage so it’s going to affect him and his album sales if sony’s not very, very careful.

Just so you know, I have found a good coffee with the right amount of beans, but it's French brewed. My face is now going numb and I feel Like I'm vibrating. You know it's strong coffee when it has adverse effects. I don't suppose I would be able to sleep. -Beethoven

you know it’s a string brew when it affects even the Coffee Boy Beethoven. Try some composing, Coffee Boy. And maybe let me have a cup of that stuff.. I like coffee and I don’t even care that it’s French brew

i don't get why people are mad at the movie. i mean it's nothing compared to the anime whatsoever but the JAPANESE producer of the actual anime and other JAPANESE producers were a part of making this movie and were fine with it. actual japanese people don't care. bc it's an AMERICAN remake, which countries do all the time. these idiots only care cause the girl is white. these dumb mostly white sjws just gotta create bullshit outta nothing

“Create bullshit outa nothing” is practically their motto.

I don’t see people mad that brittish ass Emma Watson just played a french girl… and ScarJo really looks the part so…I mean, I found that pleasant. Not that I care at all about the anime, could never get into it.


About halfway through my French exam I decided that I wasn’t going to bother with only sticking to words, phrases and structures I was sure of.

I ended up writing two page-long answers in the last section, probably riddled with errors.

“Offer your friend advice on nutrition” became “why veganism is healthy for people, good for the environment and necessary for the animals”.

And “write about what you did in the Easter holidays” somehow became “convince the marker that they should join the academic union and vote for strike action.”

It's funny about Lafayette because I love his character in Hamilton but in France we don't care for him really. He was good for America, but not for France. He should have stayed in America lol

I had ancestors living in France during the French Revolution and I’m 10% French and I speak French. They never talk about Lafayette is France, it’s kinda sad- he really did try during the French Revolution- he tried so hard. He still had his family and his wife and kids and his life- he couldn’t of just left it all.

OK I HAVE A VERY IMPORTANT QUESTION: do you (French in general, not /you/, but yeah also /you/) get angry or annoyed if people (like, people who don't speak french as first language) when they write in your language forget to add accents (or they caaaasually ignore them), like they're optional? J'étudie le français (et je ne suis pas anglaise) and this has always bothered me, idk

HAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Okay. Fam. Let me be straight with ya:

I don’t put the accents. Never. Ever. (Unless like… I know they’re there… Or I’m taking an exam in French…) I have forgotten half of where they are. Give me the word “interet” and watch me sweat in fear because I /know/ there are accents in there, but I don’t know which ones or WHERE

No joke, every time a professor announces that an exam is going to be in French, the entire room collapses because we’ve all forgotten accents and conjuguaison. We perfectly understand without the accents. Unless it’s crucial to have them (ie: commence/commencé), it’s all the same.

Of course there will always be nitpickers to tell you it’s not French unless you put the accents there but… seriously, between preferer and préférer??? Same difference to me x)

The accents are mostly there to help pronounciation, so I guess I forget to put them because, as a native, I know how to pronounce them?

Anyway, my point is: I personally don’t care, languages are already too hard ESPECIALLY French, but purists are a thing o/

Solange & Nia Talk Hair (Essence Magazine, October 2009)
  • Solange Knowles: I also dated a Frenchman of Middle Eastern descent. We were with his family in the South of France. Every day we'd be on the boat and jumping into the ocean and swimming. Then we had 30 minutes to dress for dinner. And I'd say, 'I'm sorry, but I'm going to need more than 30 minutes," because all his sisters, they would just wash and whatever. I was furious.
  • Nia Long: Right! Well, how were you wearing your hair then?
  • Solange: I was wearing a straight weave. My real hair that was out was not right.
  • Nia: That is hilarious.
  • Solange: And we got into a huge fight because his uncle said, "Naomi Campbell was on our boat, and she would be in the water all day and then she would come up in 30 minutes with the most beautiful hair and dress and dah, dah."
  • Nia: Wigs.
  • Solange: So I went downstairs, and I said, "Your uncle was a little out of line, because maybe she had a certain style that helped her to achieve that in 30 minutes. But I'm working with a weave, my tracks are still wet..."
  • Nia: If you don't want them to smell later...
  • Solange: Exactly! And we got into the biggest fight because he actually was saying that I was being insecure. I told him, "Don't ever talk about my hair, because your sisters are going downstairs, they're washing, they're coming up and they're ready. That's not what I'm working with over here!"
  • Essence: Do you think it's a turnoff to men to look at a woman in bed with a headscarf?
  • Nia: If it's good [sex], they don't care.
  • Solange: If the sex is good, the scarf shouldn't still be on.
  • Solange: [When I'd wear a headscarf to bed] the French guy was like, 'What is that?'
  • Nia: The White guys don't understand.
  • Essence: How long did that relationship last?
  • Solange: Almost a year.
