our amazing universe

I don’t understand people who don’t think the universe is amazing. Like you literally can look up and see stars that are millions and billions of light years away that might have exploded before our earth was even created. How does it not trip people out, knowing that we are so small and insignificant. Nothing we do is going to leave a big impact. And we don’t know what could happen. The sun could explode turning us all into stardust or an asteroid could hit earth leaving no trace of our existence. So tell me, how can people not be amazed by our universe.
—  Me, every time I look up

//our amazing world.. pillars of creation photograph taken by the hubble telescope of elephant trunks of interstellar gas and dust in the eagle nebula, some 7,000 light years from earth. they are so named because the gas and dust are in the process of creating new stars, while also being eroded by the light from nearby stars that have recently formed.

Apparently, I missed Fanfic Author Appreciation Day. Don’t I feel like a jerk. :(

So, let me throw it out there that there are an absolute treasure trove of amazing, clever, brilliant, talented, creative and wonderful human beings out here on Tumblr (and ff.net, and ao3, and teaspoon…) and they are all deserving of the utmost respect and love for selflessly bringing us these beautiful stories (FOR FREE).

These are the people who have made you weep on the bus ride home from work as you read that final chapter. These are the people who have made you squeal with delight well past when you should have been asleep because that scene was just SO perfect. These are the people who have fixed, tweaked, and altered our canon universes, and delivered us into the what could have beens. The what should have beens. The doesn’t make any sense but it makes us giggle and love it anyway.

So, to all of you fanfic authors out there, I commend you. ♡♡ Thank you for bringing us some of the most magical and beautiful literature out there. From the bottom of this fangirl’s heart, you have my deepest gratitude.
