list of favorite things as a fanfic author:

lyresandlasers:

  • When someone is really freaking mad at me for inducing an emotional response from them
  • when readers give me a background of how/when they read my writing
  • when readers give me a background of why they shouldn’t have been reading my writing (usually while at work)
  • when readers quote my work back to me in comments
  • the frickin’ real heroes here, the ones who comment on every chapter of an ongoing multi-chapter fic
