Where is all the Father Todd?
What you’ll need:
·A cheesy fanfic extract
·A pendant ring (from crafts sotres)
1. Take a paragraph from your favorite fanfic or book and print it or photocopy it. Make sure your printer is not in “Draft” mode.
2. Clean the coin completely and place it just where you want it to be, over what you want to have in the pendant.
3. Cut roughly around that specific spot. Cover the coin with glue and paste it behind the text, using the light against it to guide you.
*If your paper isn’t thick enough, you may want to paste a blank piece of paper underneath your text as a base.
4. Cut out the surplus.
5. Put just a little bit glue over the text, spread it outwars and let it dry.
6. Add a thick, thick layer of glue. This will act as the acrylic that will protect your pendant once it’s completely dry. I suggest you to let it dry overnight.
If you want to, you can add a second layer once the first one is dry. This will make it look more… real.
Finally, paste the pendant ring on the back of the coin.
·Try avoiding smut. You don’t want to walk around with the word “pounding” hanging from your neck, do you?
·If anyone asks about it, try not to panic and hide it underneath your shirt.
·Be prepared for fangirling outbrusts. Just thinking that you have your OTP in your necklace may give you feels.
I’m doing this. I am doing this and it will be magnificent.
lol, lol, I want to do this!
2) a writer that inspires you:
Well, on the fandom side of things, there are almost too many to name. The ones that some most immediately to mind are heartslogos, Meyari, mgnemesi,and myadamantiumheart. That said, I could literally spend all day talking about all the of amazing authors in fandom, (yourself, for one, the home-alone!verse constantly sends me into paroxysms of joy, snowzapped and the Stuck!verse, thelittlestcrane’s *everything*, kidquips lovely, lovely stories - both the yummy smut and the cavity-inducing fluff - and yup, this is the problem with starting a list like this, then I just want to go through everyone and squeal about how much i love them) and how incredible of a phenomenon fandom and fanfiction is.
On the non-fandom side of things, probably…Tamora Peirce, actually. Her books are technically young adult, but they are so good, and the messages they impart are very universal. She has strong female characters, incorporation of different races within her world, and complex story-lines without an overabundance of intricacy. Interesting, complex stories that are followable for young adult, and still enjoyable at any age.
Oh, and we can put Meyari over here too now! I haven’t had a chance to pick up any of her published works yet, but I want to so badly. I absolutely adore her fanworks, I’m certain I will love her original stuff as well. Someday soon I will have both the time and the money!
3) A weakness in your writing?
Uhg. A severe lack of confidence?
Honestly, I have absolutely no confidence in my writing, most days. It’s been really bad lately, which is why - in addition to closing out the semester and having no time - I haven’t been posting much of anything recently. I don’t think I get the characterization, pacing, plot, or much of anything right.This becomes a weakness, because the only way to improve is to do, but it’s hard to gather the motivation when it feels like everything that comes out is crap.
Oh better days, I would say the greatest weaknesses in my writing lie in both my complete inability to plan something out start -to-finish, and my desire to write out every little detail. Sometime less is more, but I get such vivid images in my head and want to relay them exactly, but that ends up making the writing feel bogged-down and stilted. Or at least so it feels to me.
4) a strength?
haha, didn’t we just cover this? ugh. Um, If i had to come up with something…I at least try really hard to make my characters multidimensional? To not fall into stereotypes.
And on the fandom side of things, I’m making a concerted effort to go back and read the source material to get a better understanding of the characters (though that’s hard, since so many of them have been written by so many different authors over the course of their history.)

Look at the ears flicking back and forth!
here is when liking something problematic (tv show, movie, book, real person, ship, etc) is a problem:
- when the person who likes said thing is unaware it is problematic
- when the person who likes said thing is aware it is problematic, and:
- makes excuses for its shitty views/problematic things
- completely disregards what is wrong with it
- dismisses legitimate criticism from offended groups with “you’re taking this too seriously’ or any other flippant argument
- tries to justify why the problematic things occur (ie, “there were no people of colour in europe in such and such time!” or “well this person did a lot of good, so it doesn’t matter that they held this problematic and destructive view!”)
here is when liking something problematic is not a problem:
- when the person who likes said thing is aware, knowledgeable, and accepts the fact that the thing is problematic
- when the person agrees with legitimate criticism, does not make excuses for the problematic aspects, and does not view them apologetically
- when the person makes those criticisms themselves
- when there is no justification for why the problematic aspects occur, but rather acceptance and trying to recover what is still positive/what can still happen in order to make up for the problematic thing
- when a person likes other aspects of the thing, but not the problematic material
you can like something problematic without perpetuating or supporting what is wrong with it; furthermore, virtually EVERYTHING has a problematic element to it
virtually EVERYTHING has a problematic element to it
