People who leave concrit on fanfiction without being asked:
Writing is easy and you deserve to be criticized for doing this, even though it's a hobby. You misspelled these words and your grammar is messed up here and here, and out of the entirety of the 50k story you wrote, I'm leaving this comment to tell you how much you suck because of those mistakes.

In case you haven’t heard, BookRiot is the fucking ish. 

I work at a bookstore and I hear every one of these every single day. Nobody cares about how highbrow you are, go away so my coworkers and I can continue talking about Game of Thrones.

and let’s be honest. almost all literary classics, if published now, would be genre fiction.

scrollin’ through an edit tag like “you don’t know how to crop. you don’t know how to sharpen. you don’t know how to color. oh look something worth reblogging. you don’t know how to use brightness. you don’t know how to sharpen. you don’t know how to gif. you don’t know how to use photoshop.”

#listen the fuck up okay everyone starts out with shit edits #dont do this man #theyll learn#hell i still have trouble with shit so what #its a learning process ughhhh (via buckykisses)

Someone else said this before (I don’t remember who and it was about fanfiction but it still applies) but if shitty things are getting added to the fandom that means it’s alive and well. New people are coming in, and if you keep them in and encourage them to keep practicing, eventually better stuff will come out of it. If nothing shitty and new comes up then you’ll know the fandom has a problem. 

Appreciate the new people that are trying.
