just reblog content……………. please………………… for the love of god <3
This is why No Content November was a thing! I can think of a few posts of my own that have similar ratios. We’re not saying you have to reblog every post but if you requested the piece/liked it then it won’t hurt to reblog
Believe me when I see people reblog my work I remember them and I’m sure this applies to other writers. So pretty please do us this solid 🙏🏾
👆🏻 Ace summed up my thoughts pretty good. Don’t let NCN be in vain, otherwise this will ruin this community. Please. I don’t want to see how this starts falling down, and I’m sure a lot of other people don’t want to see it either. But if the situation won’t get better, this community will be over. Create a side blog, or a brand new account which you use only to follow blogs and reblog fics. Just please, help to save this community. You don’t even have to interact every day or every week. You can drown us in feedback, or never comment anything at all and just reblog every single fic you read and like.
Or just… please AT LEAST reblog your own requests if not anything else. I’d lie if I said I’m not feeling frustrated when you, the requester, left only a like, or nothing at all. It feels like you cringed at it but just wanted to be polite and left a like.
In case anyone is interested, my most popular fic here has 413 likes and 30 reblogs.
In my previous blog my most popular fic has 632 likes and 44 reblogs.
And some of you think this is about notes, that we want to have 1k reblogs every day… which is not the case. By liking you show us that you well, like it, but it doesn’t really do anything. But if you reblog it, you support our blog, make more people finding our blog. More interaction leads to more motivation, and more motivation means that people won’t be dropping out because of lack of interaction. A lot of people are thinking about quitting because sometimes it feels like we mostly get demanding and rude people who treat us like machines. But even if we were machines, no machine runs forever without care.
By reblogging you show your support. You keep the motivation up, engines running and put a smile to our faces.
The worst part is that every time we talk about this, someone gets blamed to be whiny, needy, selfish and we’re told to just “do our job”. That doesn’t help the situation in case you didn’t know btw, that doesn’t make us think that “oh you’re right, I’m a writer so I HAVE to work my ass off all day all night and satisfy everyone, without any kind of payment or gratitude, I just have to accept that I’m treated like a crappy machine now which works better if you hit it”. In fact it makes us think if it’s really worth it anymore… sometimes it feels toxic to be here as some people are so rude and ignorant. Fyi if a human feels uncomfortable in a situation, they leave eventually.
If that’s what ya’ll want, then continue acting like this and watch how many of us, if not all are gone from this community in the next couple of years… and don’t whine when that happens. Always remember that you were one of those who caused it.
… or whatever you’d like to call it, really, i’m not here to exclude anyone from my holiday celebration.
that’s right - i do intend to celebrate the holidays with you folks :D
what this is about: what the title says, really. all of you who’d like to participate will become a secret santa and will also have a secret santa - both giving and receiving little gifts and messages all throughout the upcoming month of december.
ENTERING THE LAST 24 HOURS; I’M CLOSING IT THIS TIME TOMORROW!! (it’s 17:00, central european standard time / gmt+1)
please, do feel free to enter and please signal boost
thank you, i love you all and i can’t wait to see us all celebrating together xx
Forgot to reblog this earlier, but hey, this year Réka is hosting the Secret Santa event and I still think it’s really cute and everyone who wants to enter should!! I won’t be able to enter this time either (because of personal reasons) but I encourage you to enter if you wanna!
I’ll be updating my to-do list a bit later, I just finished adding my new requests to my document on Google Drive + Scrivener and now I’m going to spend time with my friend who lives here. :) She wants to play some board games with me. (I’ll take my laptop with me though so I could work on your requests)
Hi! Who are some of your favorite characters/characters you'd like to get requests for?
Hi and ooohh, thanks for asking!!
You can find my fave characters from my about page, but here’s the list:
Fave characters: There’s a huuuuuuge bunch but here’s some (also note that a character being my fave does not mean I like them romantically, so if I like a child character, it doesn’t mean I’d be willing to date them, just saying to prevent misunderstandings):
From the Wizarding World: Hermione Granger (platonically), Fred & George Weasley, Remus Lupin, Minerva McGonagall (platonically) and Newt Scamander (Just a note that I don’t write for the Golden Trio romantically at all)
X-Men: Kurt Wagner, Peter Maximoff, Storm and Jean Grey
Disney: Kida (from Atlantis), Nick Wilde (from Zootopia), Jasmine (from the new Aladdin) and Diaval (from Maleficent).
Assassin’s Creed: James Kidd/Mary Read
Watch Dogs: Wrench
Stranger Things: Steve, Nancy, Robin, Jonathan, and (platonically) the kids.
Star Wars: Cal Kestis, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Leia Organa, Anakin Skywalker, Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor, someone give Bodhi a hug, Rey Skywalker, Finn and Poe Dameron. (Also the little furry thing Leia befriended in Return of the Jedi was so cute and I want to adopt him)
Sly Cooper: Tennessee Kid Cooper (I have named my guinea pig after him)
The 100: John Murphy
Titans: the main gang + Dawn and Donna
Gotham: Jerome Valeska
The Umbrella Academy: Hargreeves siblings + Lila Pitts (and just a note that I like Five only platonically and will write for him only platonically as the character is 13 and the actor is a minor too)
Detroit: Become Human: Rupert and (platonically) Ralph
OUAT: Child Henry Mills (platonically), but I like a lot of characters in this show and can’t really say anyone from the main cast who I dislike??
The Maze Runner: The Gladers + Brenda.
MCU: Pretty much everyone, but for example, I like Peter Parker, MJ, Carol Danvers and (platonically) Rocket
The Witcher: Geralt, Jaskier, Yennefer and I want to give Ciri a big hug :(
Peaky Blinders: Still picking as to S1, but at the moment pretty much everyone.
Lucifer: Pretty much everyone from the main cast but if you need me to specify some anyway, then Lucifer Morningstar, Chloe Decker, Mazikeen Smith, Ella Lopez and Linda Martin.
Julie and the Phantoms: The boys + (platonically) Julie.
(Platonically beside adult characters mean that I usually don’t read romantic fics about those characters because I don’t feel super comfortable, sometimes I’m willing to write romantic stuff for them but if it’s my choice, I’m making the relationship platonic)
i have checked your fandom list but do you write for teen wolf at all?
Not at the moment, sorry! It’s on my checklist though, but I’m terrible at watching any serieses alone so it might take a long while to get through it/to start it. I watched the pilot around 2015-2016 though :D
I started Peaky Blinders in January, got through the first season in May and still haven’t started the second season even though it interests me… I can watch 3 movies having 3 hours each in a row with ease alone (I watched Star Wars II and III on one day, the next day Solo and Rogue One and on the next day I watched VII, VIII and IX) but series are super difficult for some reason. I forced myself to marathon Gotham and TUA S2 when they came out in Finland, and Gotham is one of my fave series but my interest just doesn’t hold up with any series the same way as it holds with movies if I’m watching alone, but with a friend it’s easy as pie, we once watched 3 seasons of OUAT with my friend in a week. Dunno why I can’t do that alone. So that’s why Teen Wolf will most likely take a long while to watch. It’s not because the series doesn’t interest me or anything, but I just am bad at watching any series alone.
Hi ❤️❤️❤️ Can you do a one shot with Peter Parker with female reader and prompts A11, A51, A62, A73, A91, A95, B11, B16, B18, B20, B30, B46, B53, B63, B80, B96 and B102? Maybe something where Peter proposes? Thank you 😍
Sorry, but you can pick only 2 prompts per fic + you can’t state any kind of a plotline, not even the vaguest one. This all reads in my rules. Send in your request again, for example like this:
“Can you do (MCU/PS4) Peter Parker + fem reader and prompts B16 and B80? Thank you!”
(Also just so you know, these will be drabbles, not oneshots, and drabbles aren’t necessarily super long like oneshots are, unless I happen to have loads of inspiration for that character)
May i request dating enola (enola holmes) headcanons?
Just a friendly reminder which also reads in my spamming weekend post: read my rules before requesting. It reads in my rules that I don’t write anything romantic for characters whose actors are minors, and as Millie Bobby Brown is 16 at the moment (and she most likely was 15 while filming the movie), I have to turn this down. Sorry!
Love your blog! Seeing reader responses here about no content November has been wild. I'm a writer and I stopped posting this month, honestly it's been a wonderful mental health break and I'm debating doing No Content Forever after this. Only sending fics privately to friends since they are the ones who interact anyway! I do write for fun and I want to keep it that way, and with how much better I have felt this month... the fun has returned and I see how bad posting has been for my mental health. The silence from readers feels so awful it takes the fun away. Anyway, cheers for all your hard work!
I’m so happy if you found something good out of NCN even when it received so much negativity from non-creators c: Sometimes you don’t even realize when you don’t enjoy something anymore and I’m glad if NCN made you realize that it isn’t worth it anymore for you. Ofc people will be sad if you go, but your happiness is what matters here! And if the situation ever gets better, you can always come back c:
I quit writing for a while too and published only birthday gifts last summer, but as I still love this, I’m not planning to quit, at least not yet. If I get tired of rude anons etc, I retreat on a hiatus or slow down with posting so I wouldn’t make any impulsive decisions (that has been my forever problem since I was a kid, deleting things etc all of a sudden because a thought of it struck through my head).
Also making content for friends is super fun!! I write friend stories where me and three of my friends have adventures and I give it out to them and they comment c: It feels nice and I hope that one day people here would at least start to reblog more, if not commenting.
Okay I’m doing it again. I wanted to do this earlier but I was afraid of judgement so I promised to myself that I won’t do it (even though I loved it last time) as it took time to go through, but as this is my blog, I’m doing it. Haters gonna hate.
This is possibly the last time for an event like this. Maybe. I don’t know. If I end up loving this as I did the last time, it won’t be. So I’m doing it. Sorry people who find my blog and request after this weekend, your request won’t be coming in a while…
So yeah :D
For the sake of celebrating the last month of one of the worst years, I’m having a spamming weekend again!
I just said I won’t be doing this again anytime soon (if ever) but as requests haven’t been coming quickly enough as I asked for them too late after all (and I’m expected to start posting on Tuesday), I’ve decided to host another spamming event. I’d like to get straight to work and my fingers are itching to write (AHEM I’VE ALREADY WRITTEN MOST OF MY SITTING REQUESTS I-) and right now I’ve been stressing because I haven’t gotten enough requests to start posting safely without fearing I’ll run out too early and since I haven’t ever regretted the last spamming event and actually felt sad when it was over… well, this seems like a good idea to host again!!
Even though it took some time to go through last spamming event requests, honestly, I loved it. All the requests I accepted and followed my rules were super pleasant to fill and like I was hooked in writing them, I always looked forward to a time when I could write them and I just bought a little 11 inch laptop so I could write more even when I’m not at home!! (My current laptop is huge and unpleasant to carry around + my mom kinda needs it) I missed that feeling as I had a writer’s block and now when I haven’t been writing anything for a month, I miss it again.
A little info package for you if you aren’t sure what does this mean:
So what does “spamming” even mean?
- It means exactly as the name says: that you can spam me with as many requests as you want. 1, 5, 10, 20, as many as you’d like as long as they follow my rules. Spam me with only prompt fics, gif imagines, headcanons or preferences, or a mix of them all, I don’t mind!! You can spam only 10 at a time though (as Tumblr stalls your messages after 10 for an hour and I can’t change it), but send more later if you want! Just remember that I might take turns between your and other requests if you send more than 3 but I’m sure you’ll understand that c:
What are the rules?
- You’ll find the full list of rules from my “rules” page and I’d like you to read it (link) but a short sum-up about the most important rules which get broken the most:
- no smut/nsfw (something slightly suggestive MIGHT be ok)
- no “can you write a imagine with x”, you have to state a) a scenario or b) present me with a prompt beside a request
- no requests for the actors or other celebrities/irl people
- reader inserts only
- no part 2′s or oneshot (longer pieces with 1k words and a name of its own)
- no fics for characters whose actors are minors (the character has to be at least 16 too), also some older characters feel unpleasant/uncomfortable for romantic fics, ask if you’re unsure. Jim Hopper and Hank Anderson are coming to mind first.
- no male readers as they make me anxious because of my past with irl men. Gender neutral is ok and I’ll write the reader as gender neutral unless the request has something which requires the reader being a female.
Also make sure I know who do you mean by stating the full name of a character + the fandom. If you request just Peter x reader with A36, I don’t know who do you mean as there’s at least 5 Peters on my fandom list, possibly more but I can think of only 5 right now. I also have 2 Peter Parkers but if you request Peter Parker, I automatically assume you mean Holland!Peter and you should specify if you want PS4!Peter.
What fandoms do you write for?
- WAY too long list to put here, but you can find all my fandoms here. Basically I write for every fictional movie/series/game I’ve seen/played and liked.
What can I request?
- Gif imagines, headcanons, preferences and prompt + song drabbles! Prompt list is here, 2 prompts per request!!
Anything else I should know?
- Send your requests in separate asks + be polite + reblog your request after I publish it if you have a blog of your own. Usage of common sense is also necessary. But other than those, I can’t think of anything.
Any fandoms/characters you’re inspired for atm?
- The Maze Runner, Star Wars, Gotham and Julie and the Phantoms feel the nicest at the moment, but you can (and I insist) that you request for other fandoms too! Characters… uhhhh I don’t have anyone in mind as of right now, but check my about page for my fave characters c:
Ordinary prompt fic request template below (for those who want to request but haven’t got any ideas):
👎︎ “Can you do one with [character] from [fandom]?”
👍 “Can you do a one with [character] from [fandom] and prompt B91?”
So this event starts now as you read this, on Friday 12am Eastern European Time/Thursday 2pm USA Pacific Time and ends on Monday 30th of November at 10am EET/midnight PST.
Just a thought which has been hurting my brain since I first watched JATP.
If that video they published on YouTube became trending and viral and people all around Los Angeles had the band’s name on their lips and Orpheum was packed with people in just a day because of that video, how didn’t anyone recognize them from the past as they were rising stars who had a lot of fans (as Orpheum was sold out in ‘95), and like Luke’s parents for example XD Okay, maybe they didn’t watch TV on that day/those days/didn’t come across that video or hear about it from their friends but I just imagine them watching TV and seeing some video of the band and them being like “huh, that guy who sings with that girl who brought us Luke’s song looks like our Luke, but nah.”
Got a Enola Holmes request for Tewkesbury and it reminded me XD
I watched that movie with my friend a month back and had a hard time remembering that guy’s name. Later someone asked me what was the movie about and I explained and was like “then Enola met this guy whose name was Teeksboor - Tiwkeees - Towerbee - Twinkies - Mr. I-Can’t-Remember - and she helped him with a problem he had.”
We probably were tired with my friend but we laughed at that for hours because neither of us could remember his name right.
Telling this just so it could maybe make someone else smile too. c:
I'm starting to think about giving up on writing. I'm not sure how to stop it, either. I don't want to sound whiny or ungrateful for all that this writing community has given me, but even after participating in NCN nothing seems to get better. In fact, it's killed my blog. I'm tired of begging for feedback. Anon are meaner and more demanding than ever. Friends are tired of hearing me complain. Writing isn't as fun as it used to be. Maybe I'm being dramatic. Just needed to get my frustration out
I’m so sorry you feel that way 😭 Maybe turn off anons/asks for a bit and try to think it through for a while without visiting Tumblr? Just so you don’t make impulsive decisions 😬 (been there in June and that had been building up for 6 months before it bursted in a form of an impulsive decision)
But I understand that feeling perfectly. It feels for me too that NCN didn’t do much anything for the cause, at least not among writers. And yep, anons have been so mean during this month alone and like??? r/choosingbeggars, oh I’m so sorry your dog died, take all the time you need, but be sure to start posting again tonight because no one cares about your dog.
People seem to think that writing takes max 1 hour a day and within that time we get 50 fics written. Like it would really be that easy, like it’s the same as chatting with friends or something, and we’re not allowed to have our own lives in some people’s eyes… and yeah, tbh I’ve been thinking about quitting a lot more because of those people who seem to think like that. Their words hurt, even though it shines through how they don’t write anything creative themselves. But I don’t wanna let go. This community has helped me so much during these 2 years, it feels like I have more friends than ever.
Inspired from that chatting thing, I’m seriously considering that one day I’ll write a fic which is like
You were like 🙄 as Flash tried to laugh at you and Peter ran to the scene and was like 😠. You smirked at Flash, he turned around, saw Peter and was like 😮 and left the scene. He remembered the last time he defied Peter and didn’t want it to happen again 😬😂 Peter took a hold of your hand and you walked home 😍❤️ It was so cuuuuute!!! 😭😭❤️
and ask my readers if that’s a pleasant piece to read because that’s pretty much how I talk to my friends. Creative writing demands thinking of just the right words and expressions, you can’t just splat an emoji there without it looking silly, it isn’t like you can just answer to the request like you’d be chatting with friends. If I did requests just by answering to them like I’d do with friends, they all would be like:
“Hey, could you do dating headcanons with Klaus Hargreeves from The Umbrella Academy? Thanks!”
- Hi, thanks for requesting!! I’m sure Klaus would be a messy but fun boyfriend 😂 Hope you liked it!
And yeah in that case I could easily queue like 50 “fics” a day 😅 But it isn’t like that and I doubt my readers would like that, you have to THINK about the right headcanons, for example what Klaus would do to make his S/O feel better on a bad day and how would the reader help him with his addiction and how does Klaus react to it. It all just doesn’t come out right away, Jenni 2.0 isn’t taking turns with me to mold it and discuss with me about it and sometimes I come back to that fic multiple times. If a character is a neutral one to me, I’m often struggling especially with starting it up but I always at least try. Because sometimes that fic blooms a lot more than I thought it would. A drabble with Quentin Beck was a super hard piece to start and I started it like 10 times, wrote about 20 words and erased it, tried again, erased it etc but eventually it turned out to be one of my all-time faves.
But yeah, mean anons/people make my inspiration go down and it’s like they don’t even realize that by saying stuff like “you’re selfish for participating NCN 🙄” they just push the writer further away (which should go without saying?????). Someday soon writers could be dropping out and I bet that those same people would be like “WHY IS EVERYONE QUITTING 😭😭😭😭” not realizing they caused it.
