i just reaaaaally love this fic

I wish there was more appreciation for writers who prefer to write more vanilla fics and especially more vanilla smut. I keep seeing people get bashed for being “boring” because they’re not writing super kinky or rough sex scenes or just deciding not to write anything, fluff or angst or smut because they assume no ones interested if it’s not hardcore smut, and I certainly feel it myself, like that hesitation of “why do I even bother writing since fandom just loves really rough smut?”. And of course writers across all fandoms who write that sort of smut are great, but it’s not the only type of sex that happens, and it’s good to show all types.

I just think people reaaaaally underestimate the extreme sexiness of really loving, intimate, and gentle smut in fics because man can it really be spectacular to read.
