This way girls and boys can see they’re not alone. I have them and this would help me see that.
I have new sheets! And a beanbag chair! And new shoes! And the cats have a new cat tree! And the puppy has a new dog bed for his kennel! And OUAT comes back tonight!
I haven’t written anything since the other day and I feel like I should but I also feel like I’m allowed to take days and just do nothing, because I work so hard doing other things (especially school work) and my brain is still thinking on fic ideas, sorting out ideas and dialogue and actions (there’s one I’m debating putting into this fic, because I want to put it in but idk if I should put it in towards the beginning or later on in the fic, because it could worth either place (and could work both places tbh) so that’s something to think on…)
Oh man, there’s a thing I keep forgetting to do which means another thing is going to arrive late and ahhhh no! Must do that thing.
i dunno man, Éomer just looks eternally done with everyone’s bullshit

Kristen Bell and sloths on Ellen

She’s seriously the cutest thing ever.
[Single and alone, Erik hires a cuddler for all his cuddling needs.]
Relationships were a tricky business. One needed to smile to one’s partner, communicate with them, find time to spend with them, spend money on them, etc. Essentially, they weren’t worth the effort.
Erik Lehnsherr had been through enough relationships to know that they never lasted more than three months. His longest one had been three months and a day and that’s because she’d been in America while he’d been in Japan on a business trip. Time differences, it seemed, counted.
au where all the money i have in video games gets transferred into my bank account
Also, here’s a thing about being a fanfic writer. It’s entirely possible, in fact, likely, that you’re not a particularly good writer. Even if you have a BUNCH of comments telling you you’re awesome, you still might suck *cough*50 shades of shit*cough* The number of comments you get is indicative of how chatty the people who read your fic were at the moment they were done reading it. And of how many people saw that you posted it I guess.
Sometimes a really amazing fic will have 100 comments. Other times, a really horrible one will. There’s a fic I re-read every now and then that still just has one comment.
I know it’s silly to say “just write for yourself” because we all want to be a part of this community and be recognized, but if you’re waiting for a certain number of comments or for a specific person (BNF) to recognize you, then you’re saying none of the others matter. 7 people liking your fic is not enough. These 7 people aren’t worthy of your writing. And in that case, you need to adjust your expectations, because you’re probably not writing the next Bible.
Because the thing is, it doesn’t matter if only one person likes your fic or a 100 do. You created something that made someone happy. How is that not enough, in this exchange of ideas in creativity that we call fandom?
Also sometimes all you can is “I masturbated furiously to your fic” and apparently some writers don’t like that. For the record, I don’t mind.
I am really sleepy so this is all totally unconnected. What I’m trying to say is, enjoy being in a fandom without expecting a certain number of people thrilled by you being in it.
