Happy Friday everyone! I hope your week was amazing. If it wasn’t so awesome, here is a bunch of lovely fics written by some incredible writers.
If you would like your fics to be featured on fanfic friday, please tag me in your fics so I can read it. I’m trying my best to give feedback to each fic I am tagged in. If I haven’t liked your fic wishing 48 hours, then I didn’t get the notification.
Thank you for taking the time to talk to me thatsthat24! I was really nervous because my sister (holeycheese) and I both really look up to you. We competed for playwriting, and your skits on vine are a huge inspiration for us. Thanks for being so kind and taking the time to talk to me and ask how the festival was. It was definitely the best first State anyone could have; pretty Superior if you ask me :D And thanks for calling my name pretty—feel free to use it for a shout out sunday anytime you want :P
#14 of the 100 Kinks Challenge by canoncanoff This one is older, but it is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITES. If you have ever wanted to have a dirty, smutty, kinky night with both Sam and Dean, read this. Then take an ice bath.
So this list is kind of short (and smutty), because I decided to do this about 5 minutes ago. I will make sure I collect all the stories I read this week.
I am looking for fics and authors to promote each Sunday!
I miss most of the fics I am tagged in, and I would love to see more fics and great writers. So if you’d like your fic promoted on my blog, here’s how!
1. I will only read Supernatural fics. No other fandoms, please!
2. I will accept reader inserts as well as ANY ship or pairing.
3. I will accept any genre (smut, fluff, or angst) and any subject matter as long as it is tagged appropriately in the warnings.
4. I will NOT accept anonymous submissions.
5. You must include a brief fic summary, a word count, and warnings for me to read your fic. Author’s notes are optional. You can send this with the whole fic, or you can just submit the link to the post on your blog. Either way works!
6. Please feel free to post on your own blog or submit to other blogs as well. This is not a contest. It’s just to make it easier for me to keep up with tags and shout out to authors I love.
Every Sunday, I will post the fics on my blog! Simple as that. However, please do not be hurt or offended if I don’t post yours one week. That doesn’t mean it was bad, and it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t keep sending me fics. It just means that it wasn’t on the list that week.
I can’t wait to share the fics and share the love. Let’s do this, y'all!
These are just some of the things that have worked for me. Again, offered very humbly. Do what works for you!
Make sure that your blog has a clear theme. If you’re using your blog to write one-shots for Supernatural, it’s probably best that you make a side blog and use it specifically just for that instead of reblogging on there, too.
Use an icon and images that are relevant to your blog. If you’re writing Supernatural one-shots, it’s probably best to put the main three guys on there. If you’re only interested in writing Dean, or only Sam or Cas, go crazy and slap their face all over! But if you’re advertising that you’re writing all of Team Free Will and more, make sure your blog reflects that.
Be consistent, if possible. Even if you’re not able to write one day or week, try and get something queued up or make sure your followers know when you’ll be back. Inactivity is a killer on here.
Interact! Not only is this good to keep your blog fresh and posts updated, but it’s super fun to talk to your followers. You’ll probably even make friends with some of them. It’s awesome. :)
Be patient. I started this blog and just put up the few stories I’d written during my time as an admin on another blog. I had zero followers and I sat and twiddled my thumbs and waited. Write what you love and people will respond! So don’t be discouraged if you don’t have a hundred followers in one day. Just keep writing and enjoying yourself and the rest will fall into place. Which leads to….
Have fun! The minute it stops being fun, it will start showing. So make sure that your blog is a good, fun part of your day and not something that irks you.
That’s really all I’ve got for here. Oh! Right, and you can always ask other blogs to promote you. I never did this because I’m super shy even on here, but I get requests for shout-outs now and I’m always more than happy. Shout-out Sunday! Find a blog you like with writing or requests similar to what you’re looking to achieve and talk to them. Tumblr is such a great place to collaborate and commiserate. Have fun! <3
