No okay but:
The Winchesters are investigating supernatural diseases like ghost sickness and then Dean flips the page to find an entry on ecto acne
And he starts chuckling because he’s picturing every ghost unfortunate to have died as a teenager suddenly breaking out.
But then Bobby walks over and says “shaddup ya ijdit, you shouldn’t be laughing. I saw a guy who had that once. poor kid looked like his face was about to boil off.”
And then Dean’s like “oh”
I kind of think it would be impossible for Clockwork to have bad posture because of his chest.
The case wouldn’t allow him to slump over.
REBLOG IF YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN THAT IN YOUR DASH.
Meanwhile with me…
when people get angry at you for liking snakes
THAT IS THE CUTEST FUCKING SNAKE
"I am my own blankie."
i’m sorry but can we just take a moment to appreciate disney genderbending
at the perfection
in all of this
and let’s not forget the best one
i’m so satisfied
god fuckin dayum
THE MALE CRUELLA LOVE ME
i think there should be AU’s and then there should be UA’s
because Universe Alterations would be a good name for when your characters are in the exact same universe but you’re altering just a couple of plot points or a few character traits
EVERYONE WE ALL NEED TO MAKE THIS A THING
GOD THIS WOULD MAKE SHIT SO MUCH EASIER
so basically all shipping fics
BLESS YOU AMAZING OP
I am probably the wrong person to ask this, anon, because I don’t have much sympathy for this type of complaint.
I’m going to gently (but not too gently) correct the mistaken assumption you have that authors owe you fanfiction in what you perceive to be a timely manner.
Let me tell you, as a fanfiction author, that I wish I could give you all a new one-shot every other day and a multi-chap update every week.
I know many others who wish the same, but can’t.
Because, you know, we have lives.
Real lives. Like in the real world. With real commitments - school to graduate, jobs to go to, both of which we need our sleep for. We have families and boyfriends who demand (and deserve) our time and attention. We have sports teams we may be committed to, projects we’re involved in, or organizations we ally our time and resources with.
And sometimes, an author may have a free day and just wants to sleep in.
Because fanfiction writing is a hobby.
A cathartic and fun one, yes, but a hobby just the same.
And as such, that hobby, therapeutic and fun though it may be, doesn’t get first priority. Or second. Or third. Or sometimes fourth.
I’ve known one author who basically left the fandom because of the pressure to update quickly and how aggravating that sense of entitlement, I know another who almost left, but didn’t, aun I see asks for the big fandom authors (Jules and BC) weekly asking when will you update? next chapter? how far along are you? spoilers?
For the most part, authors are all super gracious and kind. Because no fanfiction author is hoarding a completed chapter and deliberately withholding it to be mean. Readers are awesome and bringing happiness to someone else’s day-that’s the best compliment, right?
But to get an anon asking where in the hell the update is….that doesn’t help at all. It actually sucks the joy out of writing. And when there’s no joy, it usually—well, it usually sucks.
I’m not telling you how to feel about the subject, but really?
Please, do go write a fanfic. Come up with a plot or a concept, write a rough draft to flesh it out, edit it, maybe rewrite it, find a beta and send it to them, get it back, look at their suggested changes versus your suggested changes, edit it again, send it back to the beta again, maybe scratch entire scene or plotline, make sure your characters are in character and saying and doing the things they ought to be doing in a way that makes sense and is also compelling to read. Do all that, and post them and maybe get no reviews, or bad reviews. And do it again anyway, because you enjoy doing it.
But you will very quickly see how long it takes—how involved the process can get—because most of the people I know want to want to post work they are proud of, work that takes effort, and can’t (and shouldn’t) be whipped up overnight.
In terms of word count-a hundred thousand words-which is what most multi-chapter fics are-those take real time authors, who do it for a living as their primary income, months and years to complete. And that’s with a fleshed out concept, dedicated time to complete it, and an editor to help the process along.
Your favorite author may be stressing about finals, or working on the third draft of a chapter that just isn’t coming together right, or god forbid, having a relaxing day in the sun.
Like that’s her choice and she will post it when she can and she probably wants it posted, too.
So patience, dear. Have some patience. And go write a oneshot.
You know what’s more encouraging to an author then ‘when’s the next chapter’ or ‘update quicker!’ - leaving positive feedback about what you liked about the last chapter or the story as a whole (be specific!) - because sometimes the author is having a long dark tea time of the soul and just seeing a reminder of what’s good about their story can help them remember why they were excited about writing the story in the first place, and feel enthused enough to get back into it.
This cannot be said enough.
Don’t be rude to the lovely authors! They deserve a thank you not a work order!
There needs to be more body positive songs in pop culture and I think this is a great contribution. THIS IS AN IMPORTANT THING.
this is rly cute
Holy shit this video is fucking adorable
sO FUCKING CUTE !!!
There are kind Slytherins.
There are brave Hufflepuffs.
There are some stupid Ravenclaws.
There are twisted Gryffindors.
Your House doesn’t define you.
And please, the next time you’re about to tease someone for being a lowly Hufflepuff, or a slimy Slytherin, or a stuck up Ravenclaw or even a foolish Gryffindor, just remember that we are all Hogwarts students. We’re all part of the magic.
Is there a thing going around saying Hufflepuffs aren’t brave?!
What if when his family died, Danny didn’t just give up on life and try to stop feeling everything. What if he refused to believe that they were gone for good. What if he started looking for a way to get them back.
What if he found Clockwork.
And he begged and pleaded for Clockwork to turn back time, to bring them back, but Clockwork couldn’t just turn back time for one tiny little family; he only moved for Big Important Things like apocalypses and paradoxes…
What if to get his family back Danny had to create an apocalypse? What if to save himself and his family he had to create a paradox?
But Danny knew that he couldn’t do that, couldn’t kill people even if it would be undone and erased from time…
So he asked Vlad to cut out his feelings so he could destroy the world and get his family back.
I’m not saying he was completely lucid; he’s still depressed and grieving and unstable… But what if, rather than being fueled by a random, blind rage, he was fueled by something that was actually important to Danny. What if he was fueled by the desire to see his family and friends again…
And what if he succeeded.
Ok but for real we should do another little phandom event with the drawing swap art meme, like put all our names on a list and match pairs randomly and each person can pick one or more pieces of whomever they got and recreate them in their own style this would be so much fun! :D I know a lot of people just started school again and all that but would people be interested?
That sounds really fun actually
