ok look i know you're busy but seriously... how hard is it to post a chapter?? you haven't posted in like two weeks and im just so sick of writers posting things with cliffhangers and then not following through. you are seriously the WORST. how about you just don't post things if your not going finish.

Here’s a thought… just don’t read my stuff?

I’m sorry for not posting for so long, I apologize all the time, but school is seriously kicking my ass right now and grades are always going to be a priority for me. So I’m sorry y’all have to wait but I’m not sorry for focusing on school.


*Warning complaining ahead* This week hasn’t been the best. My anxiety is awful which makes sleep hard to come by, which makes my anxiety worse. Awesome sauce. I try to play some Overwatch, ya know, for fun (it’s a game it’s supposed to be fun people) I’m doing pretty well, gold medals and cards all around. So I think, Eh, one more game before my wrist starts to hurt (I am old) I don’t play great, but not exactly horrible either. We don’t win and then these two bitches (they were probably guys, but I’m sticking by my juvenile name) specifically call me out and blame me for the loss and then are real condescending dicks about it like they were playing great and I’m some infant mashing the keyboard with my fists. No one was playing great for the record. So yeah, thanks a-holes being publicly called out is great for my sleep deprived anxiety. I love it. Can’t get enough. I bet it made you feel like a big man. I hope you spill a glass of soda onto your keyboards and then step on some Legos.

Honestly, ever since becoming a fanfic writer myself I’ve become like 500% more understanding and patient about other authors’ update schedules. An author takes 6+ months to post their next chapter? Yeah, totally get that real life can get in the way. An author abandons a fic? Disappointing, but it happens- sometimes inspiration for a story just dies. An author apologizes about taking so long to post a 10k word chapter? Dude, that’s like 18-20 pages on Word single-spaced. It takes me at least a week to write an essay for school a quarter the length of that, and that’s with a deadline. 

It’s probably the most important thing writing fanfic has taught me, tbh. How to fully appreciate the hard work someone else has put into their story. How important the role of the audience is to an author. And that no matter what, you are never entitled to demand more of a story that you are getting for free. 

Book describing its romantic lead: His face cracked into a charming crooked smile.

Me: Uh crooked smiles are not real?? No one in history has ever had a ‘charming crooked smi-.

Harry Styles:

Me: ok but you didn’t have to go that hard…

Non-hockey Check Please fans… ya’ll kno the Sin Bin (fine buckets) is named after the penalty box in hockey right? Like it’s not just a casual choice? It’s the affectionate name for the penalty box? In hockey? Which is one of the central parts of this comic? The angry ice knife game whose fratty culture in central to the themes of said comic?

๐Ÿ‘ Stop ๐Ÿ‘ posting ๐Ÿ‘ the ๐Ÿ‘ price ๐Ÿ‘ of ๐Ÿ‘ Dan's ๐Ÿ‘ clothes! ๐Ÿ‘ It ๐Ÿ‘ is ๐Ÿ‘ none ๐Ÿ‘ of ๐Ÿ‘ your ๐Ÿ‘ business! ๐Ÿ‘ It ๐Ÿ‘ is ๐Ÿ‘ his ๐Ÿ‘ money ๐Ÿ‘ and ๐Ÿ‘ he ๐Ÿ‘ can ๐Ÿ‘ do ๐Ÿ‘ what ๐Ÿ‘ he ๐Ÿ‘ wants ๐Ÿ‘ with ๐Ÿ‘ it!! ๐Ÿ‘

Also, not that it should matter, but Dan has said companies send him free clothes. 

So he isn’t even spending all of the money (HIS money) you say he is!!

Be respectful of Dan, Phil, and any other person for that matter and stop!
