Hey guys, sorry to be that person but I’m not going to be able to do anything for the advent calendar today. It’s been a super busy day and right now I really just need to go to sleep. I’m super sorry please don’t hate me :(
After cleaning diet from bad stuff (starting a real cleansing later this week though) and sleeping LITERALLY the whole Tuesday (I’m not kidding; I woke properly up at 9pm) I’m already feeling A LOT better. I was getting angry for not feeling like my own self and after I consulted my cards the message was that I was exhausted and needed to rest. Apparently while really not being that busy I’ve emotionally exhausted myself (plus the wrong diet, PMS starting and allergies) and I need to rest more. As the cards never lie, I try to sleep this week as much as I can.
Sorry for the early morning saltiness. I’ve been sick all this week (really bad sinus infection), so it’s just been a cycle of work and sleeping for like fifteen hours at a time, so I’m ultra crabby about everything.
So I think most of us have been privy to this heinous post. There have already been several articulate, supportive responses, all of which I agree with. Anything I would have to add would amount to a seething rage fit.
But it did give me an idea. I’ve been thinking about hiatus projects. (I have a little positivity thing that I’ll get back to as soon as I finish the MC angst I’ve been working on, but I digress.) I’ve seen a bit of this post going around, encouraging reviewers to go all out 9th grade book report style on fics that they love. And I think I’m going to do just that, starting with Beyond the Horizon.
I’ve been following OUaT for a few years now, but I’ve just jumped into fandom a little while ago. I’m sure there’s loads of fic I’ve missed out on. Over the next few months, I’m going to build up a list of recs, devour them, and basically write a report on everything I love about it. Really dive deep into what makes that particular fic so lovely. I enjoy sending messages to authors about their work, but that pesky character limit gets me every time. So I’ll make a post, and maybe we can all flail together.
As for building a list: long MC’s, series, one-shots, old fic, new fic - please, rec me anything. Don’t hesitate to rec me your own stuff!
I just want all you cs fic writers to know that I love and appreciate you. And this is one way that I’m going to show it.
