“Oh godDAMNIT, MARIUS”
“What? It looks nicer that way!”
“It’s not supposed to look NICE, idiot, it’s supposed to send a MESSAGE”
“it IS sending a message, Enjolras! A message that I am in LOVE!”
“i hate you so fucking much.”
Here are some awesome and empowering quotes from several very strong female celebrities.
Not to be creepy, but what you said about fan fiction writing, so many dido's!!! I also write fan fiction and take my work as seriously as if it were all my own. And in a way, yes, I've adopted the characters, the world, and want to keep the magic alive in an original way. And yet that stigma; it keeps my work underwraps outside of friends who read or write ff too, because I just know how starkly it's viewed. Like all low-rate. But gosh, no! So thanks for your additional comments on that:]
Wow, I am speechless. Thank you for your wonderful comment; it is not creepy at all. I felt the need to add my comments simply because I love writing fan fiction. In a way it makes the characters seem more alive to me than simply reading about them. It is a way for someone to interact and engage with the characters and in the world of the story. I am always creating original characters and putting them into the story, and I take my stories very seriously. I get that it is not for everyone, and whatever to each their own, but to look down on someone who writes fan fiction is not okay by me. People always ask me what I write when I mention being a writer, and are so quick to judge when I mention fan fiction. Part of it is that I’m not fully ready to write totally original works yet, and each piece I write I feel as though my skill as a writer improves and I get closer and closer to writing something totally original. The other part is that I feel like fan fiction gives me a more full filling way of exploring another world and engaging with characters and sharing the way that I have interpreted them through my reading of the characters. If you couldn’t already tell, this is a topic in which I am quite passionate about. I share your pain, and wish that there wasn’t such a stigmatization around fan fiction and what it is about, but sadly such stigmatization exists and we will simply have to continue to rise above it and continue to pour our heart and souls into our work in the hopes that someone out there can and will appreciate it - even if our friends and family are unable to.
Ugh I honestly hate this. So just because it’s fanfiction, that disqualifies it from being fiction? Fanfiction writers pour their souls into their works just like ordinary fiction writers, there is no difference.
As a fanfiction author I love this. I always feel ashamed to admit what I write because of the way fanfiction is viewed- just smut or some crazed fangirl drabble. That’s not the point. It’s taking the work of someone else, a screenwriter or an author and building on the world and the people they have created. Just as much thought and care go into the planning of my characters to the point where I forget they aren’t real people and it leads to plot problems because after time you realize that no, that character would never do that. I love writing fanfiction, and it makes me sad how some people have put such a stigma around it that I feel embarrassed for doing something that I love.

Fieldwork is like sex: It is often messy. It can be awkward, especially at first. It requires some flexibility. It is at best spontaneous and, no matter what one’s proposal may say, simply cannot be planned. Like sex, even bad sex, fieldwork is always productive: it produces sensations, emotions, intimate knowledge of oneself and others.
