An open letter to anyone involved in that mockery that was reading Teen Wolf fanfiction only to make fun of it.
Congratu-fucking-lations to Clever TV (whatever the fuck that is), Jeff Davis and the Teen Wolf Cast who were involved in that frankly ridiculous and mean display of reading aloud snippets of fanfiction.
Just think about what you did there. You took three fanfictions, small snippets from them and took them out of the context of a whole story. And then you went on to ridicule them. So now there are three people out there who are feeling shit about themselves and about their writing.
What if those were the first stories for these writers? What if these were young people who just had their confidence dashed? What if it took all of their courage to post these stories, hoping that someone, anyone, would like them, only to have their work read aloud, out of context, by people who were obviously just waiting for them to be bad?
I hope you are all really proud of yourselves. You may have just made someone vow never to try to write again, which means that they won’t ever improve on their writing because EVERYONE improves their writing over time, but you’ve taken that away from them. Some great piece of literature may never be written now, we’ll never know.
We are your fans. We are what gives the show ratings. We are who make the hype for your show, even though it is declining in quality. And you mock us? You take something that has been happening for as long as there have been works for people to write about and shit all over it. Fanfiction should be heralded, not made fun of.
THIS FUCKING SHOW IS BASICALLY FANFICTION OF A MOTHER FUCKING 80’S MOVIE STARRING MICHAEL J. FOX. ARE YOU KIDDING ME WITH THIS RIGHT NOW????
I swear to God, I am so sick of being made fun of by these people for enjoying their content. I get to enjoy it in whatever way I choose and you shouldn’t be able to make fun of me for it. You shouldn’t be calling me sick and twisted for liking a non canon pairing or telling me I’m watching it for the wrong reasons. You shouldn’t be downplaying the popularity of one of my ships in the “real world”, only to turn around and play all over that apparently only Tumblr popular ship to get ratings. You shouldn’t be making fun of me for writing fanfiction and taking the show in directions you never would and/or could.
We are fans. We are the power behind your show. Do you know how many shows get axed because they’re not popular enough? You are popular because of us. And what do you do? You put us down all the time for being fans of your show and being creative about it, being passionate about it. Well guess what, you keep going the way you’re going and no one’s going to make you one of the highest producers of fanworks anymore, that’s a pretty huge thing in this day and age. People are going to stop tuning in and there go your ratings. People are going to be so disenchanted by you making fun of us for one thing or another and they’re not going to tune in to any future works of yours in case it happens again.
Just stop. Stop shitting all over your fans. We love this show, we love these people, and you’re making it so hard for us to continue to love you.
*sighs deeply but is not surprised this happened*
Do you know what two things I find well and truly bitterly amusing?
First: one of the fics mocked was a finalist in Teen Wolf’s official fanfic contest back in 2012.
Second: LESS THAN A WEEK AGO MTV LAUNCHED THE COLLECTIVE.
If you struggle with self-care and see this, stop what you’re doing
- Have you eaten in the last 4ish hours?
- Have you had something to drink today?
- Can you have something, even if just milk or water or cup’o’noodles or toast with something yummy on it, if you haven’t, please?
- If you have any injuries, can you please take care of them for me?
Whatever you have or haven’t done today just know you’re super strong and I am so proud of you
Okay you can go back to blogging now~ <3
Eating now because of this. Also getting something to drink. This post helps me.
The Alternian Legal System
I have a serious boner for the Alternian legal system. I just think it would be incredibly convoluted and totally Byzantine in every possible way and it’s just fascinating to think about. I’m feeling really creatively dead right now so instead, have an essay on my headcanons about Alternian law.
there is no excuse for this i just hope it hasnt been done before
edit: oops some text got cut off in the first panel but i fixed it

HELP ME FIND SOMEONE
THIS IS AN EMERGENCY—I am trying to find someone who rp’s as Kanaya on msparp. She may have been on Harry Potter threads, if you saw her as Ravenclaw!grimAutriliatrix then that is the person. She told us she has a Tumblr, but I am not sure on the URL. If you know someone who USED to have the blog Useless-Girl-With-A-Useless-Blog, then that is her—she may have a blog now with the word ‘Daizzy’ in it.
I do NOT need to know her exact whereabouts, or even her blog if you don’t want me to know it. But me and a few other people were RPing with her last night, and she fell back and hit her head on either a table or the floor. She couldn’t type straight and couldn’t read the words because of all the colors the various users has set. There was no one in her house and she would not call a doctor. I believe she fell asleep a few minutes after, as she told us she was going to.
If you know anything about her whereabouts for the last day or so(since roughly 3:00 AM, Monday July 14 2014) then please tell me. You don’t need to give me any personal information, or even your blog name, but if anyone knows about her health please tell me. She gave us a Tumblr following the incident, but the blog does not exist—leading me again to believe that this was a serious injury. If you know, please tell me if she is okay or not okay. That’s all I want to know.
