You create beauty. You write wonderful things and release them into the world for all of us to enjoy. How is that not a public service?

I support your headspace, weird or not. And I will continue consume your fic… because it is fantastic.

You write beautifully and I enjoy your stories. And you make me happy because every single story of yours is enjoyed. You might not win a Nobel prize but I’m sure there’s more happy people around just like me …. and all because of you ;)

I’m one of those who benefit from the gifts you choose to share. I don’t have the words to explain the worth of what you offer through your storytelling, but I just wanted to say thank you. Well-told stories are very similar to human touch. Needed.

You do provide a service and it’s a marvelous one. My life is a better one for having your fic in it. So thank you. If there were a Nobel Prize for fanfiction, I’d vote for you to get it! :)

Well, if it’s worth anything to you, I have showered you with awards in my mind. You get all the awards, as far as I’m concerned. <3

YOU GUYS ARE ALL THE BEST AND I SEND YOU ALL HUGS.

Random observation, but I was up all night reading fic and today I was like, “Well, now I must write and be prolific in response,” and I was analyzing this impulse in myself and I’ve decided thus: 

That I feel, in this weird way, like fic is what I can give to the world. I’m never going to win any sort of Nobel Prize or do any otherwise really magnificent thing to better human civilization, but I’m good at writing, and I can do that, and every time I sit down to write I think, “I wish I wasn’t me because I wish I was getting to read this fic instead of write it, but the next best thing will be to put it out there so that everyone who’s not me can get that.” 

And so it becomes like sitting down and writing a fic becomes like a form of public service? 

My headspace is weird right now, ignore me. 

I often think of fic that way, both as a writer and a reader.

That’s not, in my case as a writer, trying to sound like “more” than I am—my fics are not all that widely read. But if I’m ever feeling down about that fact or writing in general, that’s how I boost myself: If this thing I wrote made even one other person feel happy or moved, then I have done a good thing. Sure, I write fic for my own amusement, for my own self-improvement, but in the end I hope sharing a story has given someone else some enjoyment.

I hope there are other fic writers and artists (or any folks doing creative work) who feel that way, that their works are gifts and whether they go out to one thousand or one hundred or one, they are appreciated.

As a reader, so many of you (including earlgreytea68!) have brightened my days. Thanks for sharing your visions. x

Thank you! :-)

And I like that we all pay it forward. Like, fic makes us happy, so we share it with others, either by creating more and by reccing. Someone in response to my rah-rah fandom post said that any fanfiction course should include requiring the students to rec to each other, because of how central that is to the act of being a fan, and I never thought of it that way but it is so wonderfully true. I mean, it’s not unique to fandom, of course, but I do think that it’s part of the whole “share and share alike” idea.

I am all in favor of roasted chickens.

It was my first time! I was super-impressed with myself!

And now I have a lot of chicken to eat.

yes but consider this for your otp:

  • being reunited after surviving the zombie apocalypse unknowing if the other was alive or dead AU
  • rescuing their partner from a recon mission gone wrong AU
  • drama school rivals being cast as romantic opposites because they have “crazy sexual tension” according to their director AU
  • "are we both robbing the same house oh fuck" AU
  • growing up together in a rough neighbourhood AU
  • mutual friends always dragged to the same inane barbecues AU

sapphysapph asked: NICE THOUGHTS CHALLENGE. Once you get this you have to say 5 nice things about yourself publicly and then send it to 10 of your favorite followers (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ ♡

(1) I have grown more comfortable in the kitchen. Tonight I roasted a chicken!

(2) When I really have to, I just sit down and get stuff done. (Like my article edits today.)

(3) I like my fingernails. 

(4) I’m not a bad singer. 

(5) I think I’m good at being patient with children. Or getting better, at least.
