People who send anons that spread love and positivity, or who ask fans throught-provoking questions about their headcanons, or who send random prompts to fic writers or ask fic writers about their stories, or who thank fan artists for their work…I just want to say thank you. Thanks for being so anonymously awesome.
Arghhh thank you to every single one of you for reading my content and I adore you all. I hope everything I write has made you at least smile or feel something. Thank you so so goddamn much and now for a few shoutouts !
All of you have inspired me or made me smile in some way. i am an awkward mutual who never know when it’s appropriate to start a conversation or not but every single one of you has made me smile every time I see your writing or edits.
You guys have always been so sweet and kind and ready to help me out with my writing or life in general whenever I ask and I thank all of you for that <3
Maybe one day I will get out of my awkward shell and talk to all you :D
I honestly would tag all of you but i can’t so here are some people who have always commented on my stuff.
so this blog is from now on an archive blog as i have grown tremendously since i first made this blog, both personally and as a writer. i want to thank you all so much for your support through the last year and a half.
In your opinion, do you think comments or recs mean more to writers?
I think people might have a preference that I couldn’t speak to, but in general any kind of acknowledgement feels wonderful. There’s no way I’d be able to compare the two, personally, because they’re two totally lovely ways of saying you liked something, and that it was worth reading. So I guess it depends on the writer. :) Thanks for the ask!
What top three of your own fic would you want people to read?
First of all, whoever you are, I really appreciate you sending this ask to a bunch of writers today. Thank you for giving people a chance to promote stuff they’re proud of, that’s really cool. I’m not as prolific as a lot of other writers, so my top three are kind of…my only three. I drabble a lot more than I probably should in the form of anon responses, so I’ve only got a few longer pieces under my belt.
Hey! I'm a little new to fandom, and I love your blog, so I was wondering if you could recommend any good fic writers?
for Ghostbusters or for HTTYD??
thank you but i’m not the person to ask. i have a shitty memory so i can’t remember names very well, and plus i’ve been pretty inactive in the HTTYD fandom lately. you might want to ask @kingofthewilderwest. Haddock will be able to tell u who the best writers in the HTTYD fandom are :)
as for Ghostbusters fic writers? i honestly have no idea. if you’re a Ghostbusters fic writer, go ahead and like or reblog this post or whatever so anon knows how to find you!
I’m gonna say something that’s been on my mind for a while now. I want to thank the fanfic winters out there who spend hours writing beautiful pieces of work to share with others, and I’m sorry that so many of you don’t get the recognition or thanks that you truly deserve.
Coming from an artist, I truly believe that writers have it much harder compared to illustrators in terms of gaining fans and receiving recognition. For artists such as myself, it’s much easier to receive followers, likes, and reblogs because people only need a few seconds to decide whether or not they like the art style and if they want to share it or not. I also have a multitude of social media platforms to choose from: Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Patreon, Deviantart, heck even YouTube and AO3 if I wanted to. For writers, it’s much harder (not only because their platforms are more limited) but because most people either skip past the word of text, don’t have the time to read the fic, or ‘like’ the fic to read it at a later time. This makes it very difficult for fanfic writers to get their work circulated and to gain new fans.
Additionally, unlike artists, it’s extremely hard to profit off writing (unless you get to publish a book in which case- YAY!!!! But the chances of being published is very very slim;;). Illustrators frequently sell merch, have Patreons, or fill commissions to make a little extra money on the side. With fanfic writers, that’s close to impossible to do. I saw a writer I follow try to open a Patreon and charge three bucks a chapter for a fic they spent hours writing. Three bucks for a 5,000+ word chapter. Thats like five double-spaced, five-paged essays. Do you know how long it takes to write that many words? Asking for three bucks was already extremely, EXTREMELY cheap. But of course, ‘paying for fanfic???? Noooo.’ The amount of hate and negativity that the author received just blew me away. Authors spend just as much time on their works as artists do, so why are some people willing to pay $25-$85 for a drawing, but not three bucks for a chapter? I’m not saying that artists don’t deserve the recognition or money they earn because I know that artists put a lot of time and effort into their art, and I applaud them for utilizing their talents to reach where they are today. I just wish that more people would also give some of their love to the amazing fanfic writers who are underappreciated and deserve so much more. It’s very discouraging when you spend hours on something and barely get recognition for it. So please, help support fanfic writers by sharing their work so they can gain new fans and allow other people to see their amazing talents as well.
