    Slowing down

    Who slows down anymore? Life is a train. You either keep going at high speed or wreck. That's how I saw it. And you know what? That's how we are conditioned. We live in a world that is constantly moving. I was diagnosed with COVID a while back. During isolation I found myself having to slow down. I read, wrote, did word art, cleaned, and called people. That's it. For two weeks. I was tired, achey, and feverish. I got the chills and spent a lot of time being sluggish. It was relatively mild over all, and I'm grateful for that. But through it, I slowed down. And now? I know what's important. It sounds cheesy but it's true. I know I want to be able to articulate what I believe. I know what I want to stand for. I know who is really there for me. I know who loves me. I know who cared to reach out when I dropped from the face of the planet. I know I want to do whatever the hell I want to do. And that's okay. I know I want to continue to grow and learn about myself in therapy. I know I want to believe I'm worthy, that I'm capable.

    I will do these things. Not for my family, not for my friends. For me.

    I got to write the scene I wanted ... now what?

    You know, that specific fight/interaction/conversation scene you reaaaaaaly want to write for every premise, usually with low to moderate build-up and pay-off somewhere between the prologue and the middle point of the fic (the truly high stuff is usually reserved for endgame climaxes). You wrote it, and while it's not perfect, you were satisfied with how it turned out. It was, if not the exact same as what you had imagined, but it's somewhere in the ballpark.

    Now what?

    The vague endgame you planned (read: hastily scribed out) is a long way away if some semblance of pacing is to be maintained. There are many things to write: small fights, minor antagonists, bonding times, character arc, training arc, etc., and a myriad of other finer details that may or may not fall into your writing strength/comfort zone.

    It's like impulsively ordering some cool gadgets online and then when it arrives you have no idea what to do with it.

    Looking back on fics you've read

    I started my fanfic reading journey on Wattpad, simply because it looked good to the eyes. I read fandoms after fandoms after fandoms. There was this one story there that I still remember. It was a very well written fic and at the time, it was criminally underrated. I still remember commenting the living hell out of those sections and putting a favorite in every chapter. There were some people there who seemed to have the same experience at me, who kept commenting and we all replied on each other's comments. It was a lot of fun, the author seemed to love it and joined in. But after a while, I felt like I needed a break from fanfiction overall. And then I discovered Ao3 with a lot more amazing works to scroll through and a better tagging system. I fell in love and I almost exclusively read stuff in it. And yesterday, I just decided to get hit with a wave of nostalgia and I remember that one well written fic.

    I looked it up and the viewership had grown so much. The author changed their name but they still had the same cover. It had won awards and a hundred thousand people had seen it. They deserve it. Wattpad has a lot of terrible stories but I'm really glad that I discovered this one.

    I will in fact have a mental BREAKDOWN

    Just found out that the fandom that I want to start writing for only has two works for it on AO3.

    Two.

    I mean, there are more on Wattpad, which is where I’ve been getting my dose of fics from, but holy shit!!

    And both of the fics are from 2017!!!

    It’s a good thing I’m making my fic nearly completely original and rewriting canon so I can pull more readers than what’s in this completely dead, minuscule fandom. But tbh, I’m writing this for me and to satiate my hyper-fixation. The show left off on like, a dozen cliffhangers and plot holes when it got canceled. My pea brain can’t handle that 😫 so I’m writing the seasons it deserved to clear those up

    Wasiat Ketiga

    Diriwayatkan dari Mâlik bin Dînâr rahimahullâhu bahwa beliau berkata :

    “Sesungguhnya, kebaikan itu ada pada para pemuda [atau terdapat di dalam (usia) muda].”

    Ini merupakan peringatan besar dari Mâlik bin Dînâr rahimahullâhu tentang urgensi fase usia muda. Seorang pemuda, apabila bagus di dalam memanfaatkan usia mudanya, maka ia akan mendapatkan kebaikan yang sangat besar. Kemudian segala yang ia peroleh di usia mudanya ini, akan menjadi penopang, pijakan dan landasan yang kokoh, yang akan langgeng menyertainya sampai ia wafat; yang akan menjadi manfaat bagi dirinya dan umat, serta sebagai nasehat bagi selainnya. 

    Demikian sebaliknya, jika ia tidak mempergunakan baik-baik kesempatan ini, maka telah menyianyiakan bagi dirinya, kebaikan dan keberkahan fase usia muda ini.

    Ketika terkumpul pada seorang pemuda : energi masa muda, kelapangan waktu dan banyaknya harta yang mampu diperolehnya, maka hal ini dapat membinasakan dirinya. Sebagaimana dikatakan oleh seorang penyair :

    Sesungguhnya masa muda, kelapangan (waktu) dan keterampilan (dalam mengumpulkan harta), berpotensi memberi mafsadat (kerusakan) bagi seseorang dengan berbagai kerusakan.”

    Apabila energi masa muda, kelapangan waktu dan banyaknya harta ditambah lagi dengan faktor keempat, yaitu banyaknya fitnah; dan betapa dekatnya para pemuda dengan fitnah dan betapa banyak pintu-pintunya; maka ini merupakan faktor terbesar yang dapat membinasakan seorang pemuda. Ia dapat mengumpulkan kesemua hal ini di fase usia mudanya sehingga menjadi sebuah kejahatan besar, dan menghilangkan kebaikan dan keberkahan masa muda dari dirinya. 

    Karena itulah Mâlik bin Dînâr mengatakan,

    “Sesungguhnya, kebaikan itu ada pada para pemuda/ usia muda”,

    sebagai peringatan dari beliau betapa besarnya keberkahan dan kebaikan di dalam fase usia muda ini, selama Allâh memberikan taufik-Nya kepada seorang pemuda dan membantunya agar dapat memanfaatkan usia mudanya di dalam hal-hal yang Ia ridhai.

    Just reached over 1000 hits, 20+ kudos, 30+ comments and 6 bookmarks! Yay!

    I’m over the moon. Seriously. This story has lived in my head every day for the past year (still paying free rent in there) and I am so very proud of it! It’s the first of its kind, a crossover that’s never been done before, a one of a kind piece, and I’m truly grateful to have even gotten this much attention on it. Much more to come!!

    FFN review spammers

    I just got over 30 spam reviews from jaeden1112. Over thirty!!! I want to cry or something. This is making me dread getting reviews...

    And this isn't the first time this person has done this. I have about five past ones from the same user and a couple from emaribermudes0. With reviews exactly the same, on nearly every one of my recent stories.

    I've reported both users previously as well, yet nothing's been done.

    Dialogue Prompt

    "You lied."

    "Uh yeah."

    "I can't believe you lied!"

    "I can't believe you're still surprised about that."

    Prompt

    A can call upon an ancient power, that allows them to transform into a more powerful version of themselves, with magic and wisdom to match.

    They use this power to defeat their enemies, however, as they use this form more and more, A begins to act more withdrawn and look more tired. And when they transform, they are ruthless, detached, and emotionless, almost otherworldly in a way that leaves them unable to recognize even their closest friends.

    Turns out that this ancient power is a powerful being who has been slowly possessing A, using them as a vessel into this world. Their goal? Making the entire world kneel before them.

    (Or, something super evil).

    -Mod Vienna @see-through-stars

    Note: Sort of like a She-Ra situation, but if what happened in "The Sword: Part 2" happened every time.

    Prompt

    "Hey," A said as the blades of the swords brushed against each other. "That was a good move!"

    B blushed, stepping back to avoid A's parry. "Oh, thanks! I've been practicing it a lot."

    "I know that we're supposed to be enemies or something-"

    "We're literally trying to stab each other."

    "I know, how about I buy you a drink and you show me that move when this is over?"

    "Yeah sure, just don't die."

    What's your favorite shipping trope that nobody seems to acknowledge? (aka underrated ship tropes)

    See title haha.

    Personally, I always see people going on about stories where one character protects another. However, I prefer when both characters are equally overprotective and get into a fight/argument over who's protecting who; because angst yes yes

    I reached 100k words on my fic!

    And its not even halfway done! I started a slow burn thinking it would be 150k words at most, especially being my first fic and here I am now, about to finish the first story arc.

    I am really proud of having written this much, consistently so as well. Previously I’d start a story in my computer, write ten pages or so and then give up. I made myself post this one to hold myself accountable and it is thanks to both that and this wonderful sub that I can say I am excited to write every day.

    Women of r/Fanfiction. As readers, what parts of the male body do you like the writer to focus on during smut scenes? What makes you hot and bothered?

    Okay, kinda creepy question, but please hear me out.

    I'm cooking this upcoming smut chapter, and while i normally don't focus on anatomy, due to the scene's nature (phone sex, so both parties strongly visualize their partner's body while they're on it) the characters' bodies are going to be in front and center.

    However, and this is important, i usually focus on the man's point of view, and this time i want to do the opposite, i want her thinking about her BF's body, focusing on it, showing just how horny she's for him in an almost primal way.

    Bit of extra context: He's a superhuman vampire hunter, she's a common human. They both fixed their relationship in the first arc and had a torrid night right before he went off his mission. They call each other regularly, but one night she's just too horny to limit herself to pleasanteries and the heat rises dramatically. She's petite and has a thing for muscular big guys by the way, and he ticks all the boxes.

    But i'm a straight man with very few experience in these matters and i really don't want to mess up, so i humbly request your help.

    bittersweet reviews

    I got this review a very, very long time ago, but I still think about it sometimes:

    I love it. I'm so glad you're writing [this ship] especially with your talent. I remember always being starved for good content like this and looking back it's nice to see new pieces appearing here and there.

    Sweet, because this is an incredibly nice thing to say to someone. I read a ton of rarepairs. I know perfectly both that feeling of being "starved" for more fics of your pair, and that of satisfaction when you find one that just hits the spot. When I first started writing fic, most of my few reviewers just reviewed to be nice, I think, so reviews like this really...They really make me feel strong.

    And bitter, because I started writing for this fandom a good 8-10 years after its heyday. A lot of the biggest authors have long since moved on, and readership is generally way lower than it was (except for the biggest most popular ships, and even then...).

    I was in high school back then, and I spent every moment studying. I pretty much gave up drawing and writing as hobbies for those years. No regrets, because I achieved more than I ever expected, but I always get that sad "What if?" every time I think about this review or find that I can't quite regain that momentum I had for art.

    If you're an author or reader in a very tiny fandom, what do you do to try and engage with authors or your readers?

    I'm so happy to have found this sub! Everyone seems so supportive of one another and it's been so lovely reading everyone's experience out there -- from both authors and readers.

    As an author, I'm curious what other people's experiences have been writing for very small fandoms. I recently got drawn into fanfiction, and it so happens the one fandom I am most passionate about is the tiniest community out there.

    It's been around since 2005 and there are only a hundred or so stories on Ao3. I'm sure there are tinier fandoms out there. I'm both an author and avid reader in my little fandom. I feel a bit silly at times leaving reviews and kudos on 15-year-old stories, but I still do in case the author still checks their reviews for it.

    My personal goal is to read and review every story in my fandom! Try to be as supportive of everyone as possible.

    If you're an author or reader in such a community, what do you do to try and engage with authors or your readers?
