I’ve read a lot of fic in a lot of fandoms over the years. I’ve also tried my best to leave a lot of comments along the way. Still, today is Fanfiction Writers’ Appreciation Day, so I wanted to say a general but sincere thank you to ALL the beautiful, courageous, motivated people out there who are writing or have written fanfiction. Fic is a HUGE part of many fans’ fandom experience; I know it’s certainly made my own fandom experiences so much richer and more meaningful. I write fic sometimes, so I do have some inkling of just how much work, love, and sometimes pain goes into the stories we eventually read—for free, no less.
For whatever reason, writers don’t get nearly as much acknowledgment as they should. A brief comment costs nothing and yet there are stories that have none. So writers, whoever you are, whatever you’re writing, and whether you’ve received thousands of comments (lucky you ;) ) or none, THANK YOU for sharing your visions and your words with your fellow fans. You and your stories matter, whether someone’s told you that or not.
Sending you love, appreciation, and plot bunnies today and every day. Keep fighting the writers’ fight. You’re not alone, I promise.
Do you have script or are you trying to create Hypnosis that is focused around gooning? I would LOVE to voiceover your script or idea .
I’m 18, With Feminine, Sweet and young voice. PM for voice sample.

I’m sick of the pet industry always fucking animals like the betta over so let’s get some things straight
MYTH: bettas like small spaces, they live in small rice paddies in the wild
REALITY: No they absolutely do not, sure some survive this, but it’s a cruel life to live. Rice paddies are actually quite big although shallow, the average male betta has about 3 feet of its own territory in the wild. Bettas need AT LEAST 2.5 gallons, but a 5-10 g is even better. You can get a 3 g tank from petco for like $10
MYTH: you should feed your betta whenever it is hungry
REALITY: a bettas stomach is the size of its eyeball, it is very easy to overfeed. I feed my betta 3 pellets twice a day, but lots of people feed at different times with different food so I suggest doing some research and deciding what works best for you.
MYTH: bettas are lazy
REALITY: bettas are inactive in small tanks because they’re aware that they have no space to swim and will hit walls, in larger tanks bettas are very active
MYTH: bettas can only be kept alone
REALITY: it is true that male betta fish cannot be kept with any other betta, but (depending on the bettas personality) bettas can be kept with fish that are smaller and drab looking that won’t bite your bettas tail. I keep my betta with 2 snails and 5 ghost shrimp and he rarely bothers them. Female bettas can be kept in groups of 5 which is called a sorority. Keep in mind that these options are only possible in large tanks with lots of hiding spots.
MYTH: bettas will eat live plants so you don’t have to feed them if you have plants in the tank
REALITY: bettas are CARNIVORES. They won’t eat plants, they will eat blood worms and brine shrimp which you can buy frozen. In fact feeding real prey is good along with pellets or flakes.
MYTH: bettas don’t need filtration or heat
REALITY: they need both. As far as filtration goes, strong currents don’t mix well with bettas so a sponge filter is best.
MYTH: bettas only live a couple months anyway, why should I be doing all this?
REALITY: with proper care, bettas can live 5 years.
MYTH: bettas and all other fish are dumb
REALITY: bettas are actually very smart and trainable. Mine was taught to jump out of the water on command and come when called (by wiggling fingers). Some people have taught bettas harder tricks such as going through a hoop. They can even learn when meal time is and be ready for it.
MYTH: My child will take care of the betta
REALITY: your child will lose interest within a week, YOU will be taking care of their fish. If you’re not okay with that don’t buy your kid a fish.
MYTH: I should completely change the tank each time I clean it
REALITY: you should instead do frequent partial water changes of about 40% of the water
MYTH: bettas are throw away pets
REALITY: there is no such thing as a throw away pet and if you think there is you shouldn’t own pets
Please always read care sheets before buying a pet because -newsflash- PET STORES LIE.
I’m in a really bad situation at the moment and it’s really hard for me to even write this, I’m not one to usually ask or even open up when help is needed but this is really urgent and apparently this is all I have left.
So my mum was recently diagnosed with a disability called MS which is basically like brain damage and it affects the whole body, she had to leave her job because she’s in so much pain and she was on sick pay for a while which did help but now she’s not getting any money and even the government won’t give her money.
7 hours of sobbing in the bathroom, trying not to throw up.
actually throwing up.
flashbacks to traumatic events.
one side of yourself saying “death will get rid of the memories” and the other side making excuses not to.
being unable to sleep in fear of dreaming about said traumatic events
being unable to be around anything that even slightly reminds you of said traumatic event
tensing up and feeling ill when someone even vaguely mentions anything related to the traumatic event you experienced, trying your best to avoid crying about it.
why am i crying? this is irrational, it wont happen again. why does this hurt so much. why can’t i just forget. this is all in my head. stop thinking about it. stop thinking about it stop thinking about it.
likely caused by post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or other serious stress causing disorders.
nightmares waking you up at three in the morning and trying to keep yourself together just long enough to get back to sleep because you have classes to attend in the morning.
shaking and trying to keep it together in public as you’re crytyping when you’re venting to a friend because all you want is to get it off your chest, whether or not anyone can even understand what you’re trying to get across.
you know this thing you love doing that’s completely unrelated to trauma? you experienced a vague flashback while doing it so now you can’t do it again out of fear you’ll have worse flashbacks.
completely forgetting who you are and being completely numb.
maybe if I hurt myself in this way, I’ll stop hurting in that way.
stuttering and having a difficult time breathing as you try to ask someone not to bring up the subject again. Being too loud or being too quiet as you try to hide the fact this is extremely distressing.
something you need professional help and therapy to “get over”
Hey! Are you sick of books about gay teens written by straight adults?
Are you sick of books about mental illness by neurotypicals where it “all gets better”???
well look here!!! I’m a gay mentally ill teen in North Carolina who wrote this around the time HB2 was passed and got it published! It takes place in the 1950s in NYC and there’s not a single straight character. Please help support my writing and even just reblog it :-)
It’s kinda fucked up that Connie and Lars, two characters of colour, entire character is to serve pale boy Steven with one being “trained” that her paler friend matters more than her and the other being stripped of his culture identity as soon as it was revealed all so he can be a plot device.
