Anon:I really wish you would just admit you’ve abandoned your stories. I hate waiting for an author who has simply given up! At least leave an authors note or so something!

This bugs me in two ways:

1. Gee thanks for the review on the story, oh no wait that wasn’t, sorry, so no thanks.

2. I have not abandoned anything, but it’s messages like this that make me feel like I should. Because I don’t just write for readers. I write for me, first and foremost. And while I wish I could just sit and write whenever I feel like it, I can’t, and sometimes just don’t feel like it.

3. Once it becomes an obligation and starts to feel like a ‘job’ where I have people like you yelling and demanding shit from me, it’s no longer fun. Fanfiction is supposed to be fun…right?  

4. I gave my twitter and tumblr at the end of the chapters so if you want to know what’s going on, just ask. Don’t accuse. There are many authors who have abandoned their stories without letting anyone know why. I have never done that. And I refuse to post a chapter with just an author’s note. Not only is that supposedly against the rules of fanfiction.net, it is also a disappointment to those thinking it’s a chapter but getting a convoluted excuse as to why it isn’t. No one wants to read that. 

5. I understand it’s frustrating, but getting angry at a fanfiction author for not updating fast enough, while not knowing anything about their life, and scolding them anyway, is kinda silly. Just admit it. 

 

It's weird, I was always a huge Romione shipper but for some reason, I could never really get into hinny. What are your thoughts on Hinny?

Hinny (such a bad ship name but whatever), is good with me. I don’t mind it. I like that Harry fell in love with Ginny and thus became a part of the Weasley family, in an official capacity, even though he already was from early on. I think he needed a spitfire like her (BOOK Ginny, not movie Ginny *shudder*); They actually have chemistry in the book and she was able to understand him like no one else could. I like Ginny, and I like her for Harry. 

And although she was into him since she was young, and he didn’t realize his feelings for her til 6th year, it worked out great I think! Just like Ron with Lavender, Harry went with Cho (ugh) for a bit and both were complete disasters, because guess what? Spoiler alert: teenage boys are dumdums.

SAM SPRATT’s 2014 PORTRAIT GIVEAWAY
In short: Reblogs and Likes of this picture are each entries to have me paint a personalized portrait of you.

Maybe you want that regal portrait of you in a velvet smoking jacket to hang over your mantel, maybe one of your loved one, favorite character, or perhaps you just want me to paint you however I see fit (warning: this will 100% involve dinosaurs) – if you can think it, I’ll probably paint it – and I’ll work with you to make it something special.

Excerpt #2 from Chapter 19 of my Romione story, Look at Me

Ron’s kinda really sad and stuff and Hermione’s all hey I can help you forget that stuff. *wink wink* 

Well, it’s a lot more angsty than that, of course…

She gasps, startled, then her hands are in my hair and her tongue is probing my lips. I grip her hips hard, and groan, mimicking the throaty sound coming from her as our kiss deepens. Soon we’re both gasping for breath, fingers in each other’s hair. We can’t seem to get close enough to one another. I need to feel her with my body. I need Hermione to take over my mind and fill it with her taste, and smell, and touch; leave no room for anything else but Hermione.

Hermione, as if hearing my thoughts, climbs into my lap and immediately slips her hands underneath my shirt. Up my stomach to my chest and around to my back, her hands take a journey as we try harder to become one person through layers of clothes and dirt and anger and sadness.

I ignore the last part as I move my lips to her neck, which she makes readily available to me, throwing her head back and panting. Her frizzy curls tickle my nose as I move it all out of the way so I can lick and suck on her scarred skin. I’m grabbing her arse now and she doesn’t object so I move to the front of her jumper and pull the zipper down. Her chest is rising and falling rapidly as we watch it go down and then the jumper is off and her fingers are working the buttons of her blouse.

Wow it’s really been 3 months since an update?? I really need to finish this thing.. Until then if you want to catch up, here’s the link to the fic:

Look at Me by Jesrod82

Ok, so this is going to sound crazy but I need to let this out. The other day I was on Netflix watching a show called sensing murder when at the end, they showed a picture of the girl and I am telling you it was the same picture kari ann used as a profile picture a while back. If you don't believe me look up sensing murder season 1 episode 1.
Anonymous

I can’t remember what photo Kari used as a profile pic, but I went to Netflix, searched for the episode, clicked to the end and watched all those video clips and photos. I guess she does look kinda similar, but none of the photos shown rang a bell. But I can guarantee 100% that is not her, like at all.

But thanks for the strangest ask I’ve ever received lol! There has to be some kind of prize for that, I’m sure…

Here, have a random gif

My Problem with Ms.Binns’ Fic, ‘Australia’

coyotelaughingsoftly:

I really cannot even express how lovely that was. I do know MsBinns personally as she is one of my very good friends. She is insane with how much work, research, thought and LOVE she puts into this story! And it shows with the details and feels and angst and everything in between such as original characters and insight into Ron’s mind. And what I just read almost brought me to tears. Not only for her, but for the support for all fanfic writers! Every person should read that as a guideline before reading any story. 

Fanfiction can be a very personal thing. We write initially for ourselves, about what we want to happen to these characters. We are filling a void that we feel is missing within a world others know about with our own ideas and head canons. It could be days or weeks of writing and editing and beta work before a chapter is even published. And once it is you get IMMEDIATE feedback. It can be gratifying, but at the same time horrific when you get those negative troll-like reviews. To know that someone took time to even try and make you feel terrible is in itself ego crushing, whether or not you realize that they’re just assholes who have sorry lives and want to make everyone feel as miserable as they do. It still hurts and it’s hard to shake that off right away. 

But it’s with ^this^ kind of support and community that makes it all worthwhile. To know that there are still readers out there who appreciate a great story and writer when they see it and act on it by writing such blog posts, reblogging and leaving polite reviews, whether they are pointing out a mistake or disagree with a part of the story. There is such a thing as tact…

Thank you for writing this. I didn’t even know about it until MsBinns just told me and I had to reblog! It’s brilliant. And makes me feel proud to still be a part of this fandom. 

Also, Australia is a damn awesome fic! I recommend anyone who loves Ron and Hermione to read it. But please read the above post first, thanks :)

If I was Rupert Grint after reading that new Jk Rowling interview, I would feel like shit. I mean, imagine playing a character for over 10 years then the author comes out out and says shit like that.
Anonymous

Knowing Rupert like I do (which is very well btw.. >_>) I don’t see him caring or giving any fucks. He thought it was cool that Ron was almost killed off lol! That guy is the epitome of coolness.
