hnh. so i. one of the most popular fic writers in my fandom is writing the exact same ship and the exact same au that i was planning and i just. i’ve lost the last thread of motivation i ever had. all of her fics do numbers and she gets thousands of kudos and comments and i just know that mine is going to PALE in comparison. it’s going to flop. it’s going to be so bad. i’m a completely unknown writer and everyone is going to think i copied her. i’m so upset and heartbroken because i love this fic so much but it’s just not worth writing anymore. i know it’ll be terrible and i know it’s flop and i may as well just quit while i’m ahead 🙁
