my blog but

Idk how people actually get out of warrior cats hell because let me tell you I went 3 years without touching or looking at a warriors book or any sort of warriors related content and STILL managed to think about how pissed off I am about Hollyleaf’s death every single fucking day

anonymous asked:

Okay total wackjob sounding question but do you think there's any point in writing fanfiction for a dead/non-existent fandom?

I’m gonna skip the intros and just say this: ABSOLUTELY.

Seriously, I’ve spent a majority of my fanfic life writing for “dead fandoms”, and can I tell you, there are so many benefits.  To name a few:

  • You can take more liberty with the characters.  Anyone in a popular fandom can tell you that the more people that are out there, writing and reading fanfiction, the more pressure there is to write characters a certain way.  Everyone else’s headcanons practically become law, to the point that when you try to do something original, it feels weird or out of character.  When you’re in a fandom full of cricket noises, though, the characters are your playground.
  • There’s someone out there who will adore you.  Even if they don’t review, there are living people in dead fandoms, and they will appreciate anything you post, even if it feels like shouting into the void.  You have no idea how many obscure or dead fandoms I’m still in, simply because someone out there published a few fics I loved.  You can ask any fanfic reader and they’ll probably tell you the same thing.
  • Fewer of the usual tropes have been written.  You know the stuff: characters have to fake a relationship, characters are kidnapped, characters are stranded on an island, characters are thrust into a zombie apocalypse, characters are genderswapped, and the like.  A dead fandom means that there’s less work out there, which means you can write the “fandom staples” and AUs that the fandom lacks.  It’s actually quite beautiful, to be the last hope for Fandom Trash.
  • The dead fandom may come back to life.  Star Wars fanfiction, for the characters I liked, was basically dead as I was growing up.  Everyone was writing about Anakin Skywalker and the new trilogy and I was bored as hell.  Then the new movie was announced, including the original trilogy characters, and everything kicked back to life again!  All my old stories were suddenly getting attention and feedback.  The same thing happens when an old TV show gets a movie or an old movie gets a reboot, etc. etc. etc.
  • It teaches you to write for yourself.  It’s a common misconception, especially in fanfiction culture, that writing is a product – a gift you give to other people.  This is emphasized by reviewers soliciting more chapters and messaging writers privately to pressure them (which many of us know is a pain in the ass).  But when you’re writing, with no intention of professionally publishing and little expectation of online feedback, you feel free to do what you want.  You start to write scenes and plots that make you happy, because writing becomes more about the process.  And that’s invaluable.

So in conclusion: hell yeah, own that dead fandom.  Who knows?  You might even pull a Frankenstein and bring it back to life, yourself.
