rppetpeeves:

Did you know that just because something is posted on the internet doesn’t mean it’s “free to use”?

  • Did you know that if you don’t credit artists for their work, it can drive them to stop drawing art for that fandom (or even fanart in general) entirely?
  • Did you know that…

Dear Epic fandom,

Whenever another person is getting hate, or is in trouble remember one thing many leaves, one tree.

Dear every fucking fandom, please remember this.

Nightlight’s eyes are… GREEN in the first book…

banecandy:

Now I haven’t read the last two released but…

Why do so many draw him with blue eyes when it is stated his eyes are green at the end of the first book (page 208)? Am I missing something? Or did everyone just make them blue because he is blue?

Reasons to become a Role Player:

1.) Improve grammar, details, and spelling

2.) Meet awesome people

3.) Allow your creative side to come out

4.) PUT YOUR CHARACTER THROUGH EMOTIONAL TRAUMA
FOR YOUR OWN SICK AMUSEMENT

Shameless Middle-Earth Denizen: Fanfiction & Capitalism, and Why I Think They Are Related [TW for homophobia, mentions of sexual violence, capitalism]

hobbitdragon:

Lots of really amazing writers denigrate their work (or have their work denigrated by others) because they write fanfiction rather than “real stories.” The more I think about this, the more messed up I think this is, and I’d like to talk about why.

Part of the reason fanfic is often denigrated…

timey-wimey-renner:

Many of us were excluded, lonely and depressed before we joined any fandoms. We found refuge in the stories and comfort in the characters. We found people with similar interests and gained friends who understood and sympathized with us. When the stories hurt us we found solace in the fact that we are not alone in feeling this way. In many ways to many people these stories saved our lives. Some might have been pointing towards suicide, but maybe the Doctor and his story stopped some. That’s what matters, because we owe these stories our life. We owe it to the Doctor, the Winchesters, the Avengers and whatever fandom you might be in. They’re always there and always will be even when all others abandon us. I can honestly say that I was in deep depression before I started watching Doctor Who and the story very much pulled me from that place and changed who I am, made me who I am today. The 14,000 notes on this post show that I am not alone and none of us are.
