hello, i’m a human
Hi. I’m the human that runs this blog. An actual person, running a fanfiction blog because I enjoy it. Other fanfiction bloggers are real humans as well.
This morning, I had a few messages asking for links to master lists and posts. Not one of them said please or thank you, or even hello. Most of them had multiple question marks at the end, which feels very demanding. I had a few messages asking why I hadn’t done a certain pairing or idea for my drabbles yesterday. Again, no please or thank you or hello. Again, demanding and aggressive punctuation. I got an anon asking why I hadn’t done more- that one I answered publicly. Even if they were just curious, the tone was rude, and hurt my real, actual human feelings.
Now I have someone in my inbox telling me that the anon was right, because I’m a blogger and that’s “what I’m meant to do”. It’s really not, anon.
My only guess is that the people sending these messages thought I was an automated program or something. That’s the only reason someone would be that rude or entitled or demanding, right? Surely no one would send those kinds of messages to a real person.
So hi. I’m a human. Act accordingly, please. Thank you.
