Goodreads vs Fandom

I have seen some posts going around about how some authors have found their fics on Goodreads. Angry and scared about the fact that there is a masterpost on a “foreign” reading website, some have lashed out against the people who have it on their shelves.

But I want to talk about how Goodreads is an unrealised tool for fandom.

See, when Tumblr was created, its original purpose was not to host fandoms. We made it that way. We saw potential in a website that looked like crap, and look where it is now.

Goodreads is a website where you track what you’re reading, have read, or want to read. How many people have complained about getting into a fic and realised midway that they’ve already read it? Frustrating, right? Goodreads can help mitigate that issue.

See, the way that fics are added to Goodreads works like Tumblr redirects: it has a title, author, summary and link listed. The link goes to the platform where the fanfic is hosted. It is NEVER posted on Goodreads.

“But people can rate my fanfics and I don’t like that!”

Okay it’s widely accepted that the rating system on Goodreads is flawed. Here’s what the ratings mean:

1-star: didn’t like it.

2-star: it was okay

3-star: liked it

4-star: really liked it

5-star: It was amazing.

On Goodreads, it’s not considered a bad thing to rate books two stars and up.

“But people can leave bad reviews there.”

Not a lot of fanfics get reviews on Goodreads, only ratings. However, popular fics have a tendency to be drowned in 4/5 star ratings accompanied by gushing reviews. The lesser known ones just get ratings, and if they’re lucky someone will review it.

“Okay, but what can I do as an author to have a bit of control over my stuff on Goodreads?”

Claim your author bio. Everyone gets one. Just create an account with your username if you want, but you can also look up that username in the database, find your profile and claim it.

Also, you can become a Goodreads librarian if you don’t want to claim your author profile. For this, you may have to apply a few times as only a few people are chosen each week, but essentially this gives you the chance to add in/take out information in a book’s page.

There are how-to manuals on the website for both of these things.

“But what else is Goodreads good for?”

Recommendations. Don’t know what to read next? If fandoms become popular on Goodreads, you’ll get personalised recommendations of things you could read next. How many times have you wished you could figure out what to read, but you feel scared to go and ask someone for recommendations? Goodreads can help, but only if you let it.

Goodreads is not a scary place, and fanfictions do have a place there. They are allowed.

To anyone still worried, give it a shot. I beg you, let Goodreads have a chance in fandom. If, after a month, you don’t like it and want your fanfics removed, I am more than willing to assist.

But please consider the potential Goodreads has, and that all traffic goes to AO3, Tumblr or FF.Net and it is never hosted in its entirety (like, masterpost and story) on that website.

Imagines- Ego Outing

So I came up with this idea last week when I went out with family and just imagined all 17 egos going out somewhere together. What a sight that would be, but it never does go as planned…

All 17 of them together is a rare occurrence, but they do go out on group trips from time to time just to escape from the stress of trying to take control again.

Ed, looking like a cowboy wanna be as usual, would act as the dad of the group. He has to keep everyone in line and make sure they’re all aware of where they’re going.

Silver still insists on wearing his costume and acts as the mum, staying at the back of the group to make sure no one is left behind and if necessary, offering support when one of the egos, usually king or bop since they never look where they’re walking, trips and hurts themselves.

The googles are the satnavs. Google walks beside Ed and helps him navigate whilst the others check for points of interest or search for places to eat when everyone starts to get hungry, which is usually looking for ice cream shops in Oliver’s case.

King and Bop are the kids, despite the fact that King is one of the oldest egos. They’re constantly wandering off and getting distracted by the littlest of things. Bing is the unfortunate one who has to be responsible for them and constantly runs off to see where they’ve gone to. Usually he’ll find King running around with squirrels whilst Bop is singing to himself. Bing always informs Chrome when he’s leaving so no one will think he’s gone missing, like the time they lost Will and everyone panicked, but they found him a few streets away in a pet shop playing with puppies.

Bim sticks with the Jims, chatting about how beautiful the day is or how he wants to buy that gorgeous but expensive suit he just passed. They usually hang back if the others go into a shop and prefer to sit somewhere quiet and spend time together. Bim hates crowds is he’s in the middle of them. When it’s a crowd in the audience of his show, he isn’t as bothered, but being trapped in between people in a shop or on the street is a nightmare, so the Jims make sure they stand either side of him to act as a barrier against other people.

The Jims are responsible for planning. Jim2 look ahead at the weather forecast, always predicting it correctly to be able to plan the perfect activity for the day, whilst Jim1 allows his visions to become clearer so he can makes sure nothing disastrous will happen. He also gives the egos traffic updates if driving is involved.

The Host holds onto Dr Iiplier. Although he can ‘see’ relatively well with his narrating, when in public he prefers the extra support and guidance from someone he trusts with his life. The doc describes little things that Host wouldn’t necessarily pick up on, like a single flower growing away from the rest or a ladybird that had just landed on the Host’s bandage. Even if The Host could already ‘see’ these things, he appreciates and relaxes to Iplier’s calming voice.

Dark hates group outings. He cares deeply about the egos since they’re basically his brothers (doesn’t mean he likes them though), but he hates normal people. Anyone who even looks at him or his fellow egos the wrong way will feel a dark, heavy aura wrap around them. If it wasn’t for the fact that Will often holds Dark back whenever he tries to lunge at someone or prevents his aura from controlling anyone by emitting his own pink aura to counteract the effects, the demon would have an army of zombified humans under his influence walking behind him.

Yandere is also like a child, but with a twist. He can pull of the innocent act quite well, but if any ‘normal’ person tries to approach Dark, not only will Dark start to snarl, but Yan will ready himself to hunt down and kill said person. Dark isn’t Yan’s senpai, but Yan looks up to Dark and treats him in the same way. Rule one with Yandere: touch his obsession and you’re going to heaven (more like hell once he’s finished)

Will just loves being outside with everyone, although most of his concentration is focused on Dark and Yandere, making sure they don’t kill anyone. Will always thinks to himself ‘who’ll watch me if I want to kill someone?’ but he knows that, as the leader, he has to set a good example for the others and make a good impression on anyone who sees them. Out in public is the only time Will ever accepts that he needs to be responsible because he knows that if anything happens, the blame will fall on him automatically. He does, however, take the time out to sign autographs and pose for pictures when his adoring fans approach him.

In the end, they finally reach wherever they’d panned to go to and later on, head somewhere like a park or the beach to sit down and enjoy the ‘human’ world before heading home.
