  • me: [doesnt get attention for fifteen seconds]
  • me: [drapes self over the lounge] it is fine. i am Okay. i suppose it is simply my destiny to die alone. Abandoned. Without a soul in the world to care for me. [delicately wipes a glistening tear from my eye] i'm not bothered. i Understand why you all Hate Me and wish me dead. after all, maybe it is all for the best....... [i stare forlornly into the middle distance, allowing my limbs to go slack as i lie back and wait to wither away, ignored forever]
So you want to interact with a fanfiction author

Great! I’m glad you want to reach out and start a conversation with the many creative, giving people who take time out of their busy lives to pen the stories that have captured your imagination. This post is going to cover leaving reviews, giving constructive criticism, and a few do’s and don’t’s.

If you like a fic, leave a review! You can do this a couple different ways.

Reblogging with tags. Every single creative person I know, be they writer or artist or musician, religiously stalks the tags when people reblog their work. Tags are an amazing way to communicate with a creative, especially if you’re shy about sending them a message directly or are afraid your comment will go unnoticed in their inbox.

Don’t know what to say in the tags? Think about the moment you decided you were going to reblog this piece instead of just hitting the “Like” button. Was it a particularly well done piece of dialogue? A description that made you feel like you were a part of the story instead of just reading it? A scenario you’d never considered before but changed the way you thought about [character a, situation b, or fandom c]? There’s a reason you’re taking time to reblog instead of like, so let them know why! Not every reblog needs to be a tag flail.

Alternatively, you can send the author a message. Fanmail if you’re shy and don’t want your adoration made public. Sometimes, if I don’t have time to tag a fic the way I want for whatever reason, I’ll like the piece and then shoot the author a fanmail or an ask telling them what I liked. This is also acceptable. Who doesn’t like getting mail? Crazy people who don’t use social media, that’s who.

Ok, but wait. What if you DON’T like what the author has done with their fic? What then? Yes, there are options.

Option #1: You ignore the fic. You neither like nor reblog the story. You and the author both move on with your lives. You may choose this option at any time. It is not necessary to let the author or anyone else know you have chosen this option.

Option #2: Ask the author why they chose to go that route. Politely. We’ll go over what that means later.

Option #3: Give constructive criticism. Now. Be careful with this one. Creatives are sensitive people. Make sure the author is open to it before you go barrelling into their ask box. If you message me, even on anon, saying, “Hey, I just read your latest fic and I have some concrit I wanted to run by you. Is that ok?” that is perfectly fine. If my answer is yes, go for it. If not, see Option #1.

What is concrit? Glad you asked.

This is concrit: “I totally get the vibe you were going for with that scene, but I was a little confused about the angles of the body parts. I don’t think you meant for them to be doing xyz there. It just took me out of the moment a little.”

This is NOT concrit: “You’re actually not very good at writing smut. You should probably just let [other person] write it and stick to what you’re good at. Which is not smut.”

What’s the difference? In the first one, you acknowledge what you think the author was going for. You explain what has you confused. You explain how you interpreted it. And then you leave a way for the author to contact you to respond to the concrit. You could be right. Maybe the author’s beta was having an off day and missed that awkward elbow maneuver. Maybe they don’t have a beta.  Or maybe it’s you that’s missed something. The second example is rude. This criticism is not designed to help the author. It is designed to tear them down and discourage them.

Some people adore concrit. Some people only want it before they publish a piece. Some don’t want it at all. None of these are wrong.

SIDE NOTE FOR AUTHORS: If you ask for concrit, do not be upset, offended, or throw a tantrum when someone sends you a respectful message. You did not want concrit. You wanted to ask for concrit and revel when no one sent you anything. Those are not the same things. Concrit, when given correctly, is designed to make you, the author, a better writer.

Ok, let’s go back to Option #2 now. Where you liked the piece overall, but the characters are acting a little wonky. Something’s not quite right, you think. You don’t really have any concrit, but you want to say something. Here’s what you can do, especially if the author is posting a work in progress.

Acceptable: “Hey! I just read the latest chapter of [amazing story you’ve been following since day one]. I’m enjoying the story so far, but this last one has me a little confused. Why did [character a] do [this]? I feel they would have done [that]. Am I missing something?”

Not acceptable: “Your latest chapter was a big disappointment. I feel like you just don’t know the characters anymore. There’s no way in hell [characters a and b] would be [doing xyz]. I’m sorry, I’m unfollowing you.”

In the first example, you let the author know you like their work. You are making an attempt to understand their vision. You give them a specific example of what’s bothering you. You acknowledge that there may be things coming that you aren’t aware of yet. In the second, you’re an asshat who is wasting bandwidth. The tone has shifted from commenting on the story to commenting on the author.

And here are a few general DO’s and DON’T’S:

DO tell an author you are excited to read the next chapter.

DON’T send an author a message saying only “update soon” less than five minutes after the new chapter was posted.

DO speculate on what’s going to happen next.

DON’T tell the author how to write their story.

DO ask your author how the writing process is going.

DON’T ask your author why they haven’t updated yet.

DO send your author love.

DON’T send your author anon hate.

THERE ARE NO PROFESSIONAL FANFICTION AUTHORS. (We’re not gonna talk about she-who-must-not-be-named of the fifty shade variety). Every single fic author has a job, family, friends, school, religion, other hobbies, or sleep equally vying for their attention. Respect their time, respect their work, respect them as human beings, and we’ll all get along fine.

Everyone who reblogs this will get a pic of Gerard Way in their submissions

I’m not even joking, I have so many.

Project 87

Freddy just wanted to find Mike. Instead, he finds Springtrap and a strange old cartoon…


Ta-da! Here it is, our crossover with Bendy and the Ink Machine! This was inspired by one of our VA’s. He’s got a pretty good Bendy voice, and, well, I had to take advantage of that. And what better way than to combine it with our very own p87lore, hm?
This is heavily headcanon-based, since it was written before Chapter 2′s release, so please forgive anything that doesn’t seem to add up with what we know of the game as of now. It’s also set in the p87lore, so if you’re wondering why Freddy and Springtrap are able to interact together, maybe take a peek at our tag for it ;)

This could be a series if people show they like it enough. If you enjoyed this, please reblog it! If we can get, let’s say, 20 reblogs, we’ll continue.

It’s less than five minutes long, so what are you waiting for? ;) You can also listen on Soundcloud.

In honor of the single most recognizable date in the RK fandom, we fans should do it up right!

Let’s have an RK party, a week long party of pure Rurouni Kenshin, from Sunday, May 14th to Saturday, May 20th.

Let’s do streaming parties, fanart, RK photo edits, round robin fics, crack fic challenges, playlists, fic gifting, and anything else anybody can think of! Let’s spam our blogs until our followers wonder just what the hell Rurouni Kenshin is, and why they aren’t watching/reading it too.

We’ve got a month to get our act together and then a month to get this stuff made and waiting in readiness. Reblog this post and add on your ideas, your intention to host a party, you volunteering to host the fic giftings, your ideas for round robins, and anything else your creative brains can generate!

anonymous asked:

People keep trying to tell me that now detention is done Anti is dead but if Anti was dead why did Jack post a picture of himself with his gauges on IG with no caption for an hour? Why is he still reblogging Anti fan art? Jack doesn't screw us around, he wouldn't let us get this hyped about nothing. Something is happening and it will be big, I just know it

Exactly what I was thinking.

He also reblogged an Anti gif and put in the tags “wait for me” and, like you said, Jack wouldn’t do that for shits and giggles. He’s probably planning something, just…I don’t know when itll be, especially with how things have been going as of late

BUT WHEN IT DOES ITLL BE GRAND

I finally got around to drawing Kira! And I’m glad I did- I really love her; she’s probably my second favorite character.

The stripes on her sleeves aren’t that accurate; I improvised a little. They aren’t even that accurate in the show when comparing her stop motion puppet to the sleeve/glove used for hand close-up shots. I need to get better at coloring. I’m tired. Why do I wait until late at night to draw?

❤  Likes and reblogs are appreciated!  ❤

Tumblrs like a dirty little secret I have.I love it so much, but its something knows one knew about.It was a secret addition that know one knew about.

Especially Kian.

I’d waits till he had gone to sleep and just blog, reblog even write.I felt it was away from me to get out my feelings  without anyone knowing it was me.I loved my job of course I did, being a youtuber was a huge dream of mine and the fact that it meant I earned enough to leave to a part time job and do youtube full time was amazing.Words couldn’t describe it, but the downside  has I couldn’t put anything online without people knowing it was me. So that’s why I had this tumblr blog.

I’d write silly things about what I and kian had done that day but write them as imagines.The fans of my blog seemed to really like them and in a way it was almost like a diary for me.A way for in a few years for me to look back and remember the good times I and kian had. It was also a way for me to fangirl about Kian without him knowing.I was a fan of Kian before I met him.It was one of those things people dream about meeting their idols and falling inlove and for little old me it happened. I met Kian at fan fest and we instantly clicked.He told me he was a fan of my videos and it about killed me indide And I suppose you could say the rest was history.

So that’s what I was doing I was writing up the day I and Kian had had.We went out to the mall got some new clothes it was a general day until I saw my ex.He tried talking to me, but Kian stuck up for me protecting me.I was really hurt by my ex, Kyle.He used me a lot.He was a typical fuck boy, but I didn’t see that as I was in deep.Kian knew all this and he face when he saw him said it all.He grabbed my hand tighter and pulled me close.

Kian was in the bathroom as I finished my last sentence I quickly clicked post.

“Babe?”Kian asked as he walked in the room.Water dripping off his body.He had nothing but a towel wrapped around his waist.Even now of 2 years being with Kian sites like this just killed my inner fangirl self.

“Hmm,”I said shutting the lid to my laptop.I couldn’t help but smirk to myself as kian came closer to me.

“You’re wet” I laughed trying to pull away from him as  he hugged me close.

“You know you love me” Kian laughed.

“Hmmm, you’re lucky I do.Want a coffee?”I asked finally getting free from kians grip.

“That would be great” He laughed.I quickly ran downstairs making us both a coffee.I carefully carried 2 steaming hot coffees up the stair back into our bedroom.

“Kian what are you doing?”My mouth dropped at the sight Kian was laughing and smirking at my laptop with still nothing but a towel on.I hoped to god that he was watching a funny video or something.

“KIANS SO HOT LIKE FUCK ME”Kian laughed.My mouth dropped I felt my cheeks burn.

“Oh my god this one even better imagine Kian-“I couldn’t take it anymore I quickly put the coffee down and jumped on Kian taking my laptop out his hand.

“Kiannn”I yelled.

“What it’s sweet you blog about me” He laughed.

“What were you even doing on my, laptop”I asked cheeks still burning from embarrassment.

“Well, my laptops dead so I borrowed yours as I was gonna check my Tumblr, but then I realised you was logged in and I couldn’t help but look”Kian laughed.I couldn’t even look at Kian.Not from anger but from embarrassment.

“Why you so embarrassed I think it’s cute well apart from that smut you relog bloody hell y/n”Kian laughed.Shit, I forgot about the smut.It got hard when Kian was away okay?Sometimes I just needed something to well you know.

“I I” I looked up at Kian.Without hesitation, he smashed his lips into mine.

“Why don’t we make that smut reality” Kian whispered.My eyes widened I couldn’t help but smirk.

“You’re not angry,”I asked.

“Why would I be I find it adorable and even quite hot”With that Kians lips smashing into mine.Without hesitation I kissed back.

I was gonna do a whole other post about the fact that this fandom is trying to police drag queens and make them pg13, even when the queens themselves havent expressed discontent with each other, but im kinda sick of people reblogging my stuff and adding their own commentary. Wanna be offended? Good for u, a warning tho, ur not gonna have fun in this fandom and with the queens if u don’t learn to take these things as jokes between friends. If said queens who are being mentioned havent said anything about being insulted, why the fuck are u getting upset. U know dont listen to me talk just check Bobs twitter or whatever.
Anyways now to something more important, I cant wait for SaShea to win this competition aww

one downside of the ruggedly handsome man post getting popular is that there are lots of people in the notes and tags saying stuff like “these guys arent even handsome theyre both ugly” and anyone who knows me well knows that im pretty sensitive to stuff like that but also theres no practical way of telling the thousands of people reblogging a funny post “hey btw could you not call people ugly it upsets me” so uh i just gotta wait it out i guess

shadowetienne  asked:

Would it help with kicking the imposter syndrome feels in the face to have someone give a critical analysis of why the essay is excellent? (And in a related question, are you OK with people reblogging it?) I'm still having wow that was beautiful and so poetically written feelings and it's been a few hours.

To answer your questions in order: yes, yes, and, man, you’re gonna make me cry.

anonymous asked:

I have a question: why do people feel the need to be such douchebags over someone VOLUNTEERING their time and energy. You don't owe them shit and they're bitching about your reblogs?! They should be glad you're waiting to be 100% before reading for them so they don't get an inaccurate reading. Don't be selfish and entitled peeps and if you have nothing kind, supportive or constructive to say then we really, truly couldn't give a rats arse & we don't want to hear it. People are so rude, ugh. :-|

Thanks for the support hon! I dunno why but this one kinda got to me. They basically like
Found some really sexual way to call me a fake and to like
Invalidate me and my craft
And I just
Can’t uAu

Your support helps me a lot, and I really appreciate y'all!

mycosmicbackyard  asked:

Hey you. Yes, I experience the same as well. About the notes, the last post that you reblogged. Who knows what it is? But it is what I use to get as well. So I have a question, when did you start twc and why? You may have written something about it before but I am curious on how you think about it NOW. :-)

NOW is temporary, as is everything.  :) Yes, my opinions on just about everything change regularly.  

I’m not sure the exact date I started twc ( oh wait the date Kevin noticed was November 9th 2015 )  referring of course to  @twcpoetry which is not the same thing as the Tumblr Writing Community.  

I had re-created my blogs after deactivating.  Someone had already hijacked my previous URL and so there was no going back.  But I made my little blogs and noticed I really wasn’t getting anywhere.  I knew the writing community needed a central hub.  It just wasn’t here anymore. The features were gone, the community was gone, there were small cliques of old friends, and we did what we could. But it wasn’t enough.

I was already reblogging everyone, so I simply changed the URL.  simple really, and I upped the reblog rate and started queuing… and so it is what it is now.

Flashbacks | H.S

I’m so sorry to anyone who has been waiting for this last part, Tumblr didn’t respond as well to this, but thats okay. I’m proud of it.

If you haven’t read the previous parts, click HERE for the masterlist, where all the parts are posted.

PLEASE REBLOG IF YOU LIKE IT!


Why can’t I do this. I’m 20 years old, I am married, I have a house and a job, but I can’t open a letter.

He leaves in fifteen minutes. Fifteen minutes left with this man who stole my heart, and gave me his return.

“We have time to go get a milkshake…” I joked, causing him to laugh.

“Almost like we have time to go dancing.”

“Or go to the fair.” I smiled, looking down at my shoes.

I wrapped my arms around his neck, hugging him tightly.

“I’ll be back.”

“Yes, you will. You have to.” I said, tearing up. My heart was starting to physically hurt from the torture of know I had to let him go.

I pulled away, and he kissed my cheek. “I will. I will.”

Update 4/24/17 AKA I’m Alive, Shakespeeps!

SHAKESPEEPS.

HELLO.

I promise I have not abandoned you all! I am quite sorry about the inactivity these days. I am a week away from my finals for university, and I am wrapping up the last week of classes this week. Include a busy work schedule and some personal stuff… I have not been able to use Tumblr as I used to.

However….

This summer, I will be back on here, reblogging cool Shakespeare stuff and getting back in contact with those who have been messaging me from the past. I promise I have not forgotten our correspondences! You all make me really happy to be part of such a cool fandom that most people think is not a fandom.

In my personal life, I am waiting on my passport to arrive in the mail. Why, you ask? Because I am going to England (hopefully!) this summer to see one of my best friends! I am so excited to see her (I have not seen her in five years) and to catch up with her in person. Also, I am excited to travel internationally by plane for the first time,  but kind of nervous. In terms of myself, I am growing more comfortable with myself. I have a vague idea how I want to transition physically after my undergraduate career in university, but that is two years away. A lot can happen in two years.

In terms of my Shakespearean academic career… I am continuing my Shakespeare studies (like of course I am!) with a course called Shakespeare and Adaptation for next semester, with the same professor who is my Shakespeare and was my British Literature professor too. I am excited to learn in her course! Also, I saw Twelfth Night last Saturday night at my university, and it was absolutely a treat. The production was set in the 1920s, and from the costumes, the set design, the acting… almost everything was spot on. I did not appreciate the queerbaiting though. That’s a rant for another time though. Also, the production’s Malvolio was absolutely a treat to watch. Hey, I like my Shakespeare characters who make fools out themselves (looking at you, Polonius!). And yes, I DID wear yellow socks to the play too.

Anyhoo… I hope finals will work in your favor for my university students! You can do this!

Yours.
