this isnt exactly a rant but something i've noticed:
in fandoms where the majority of fans are made up of younger people (like the grishaverse), i am finding that way fewer people are commenting on fics.
now i'm not complaining about younger fans! i am only 17 myself! but please, please comment on people's fics. it doesnt have to be an essay - it can literally just be a keysmash, a smiley face, a few words, anything really!
but comments are so, so important to fic writers. i genuinely cannot describe how happy a comment makes me when i get one - it's a nice little serotonin boost and it makes me want to write more things! so please, if you want to support fic writers, please consider commenting on our work :D

my mother's take on the grishaverse ships:
darklina - "ben barnes is fit but he reminds me of my second husband and not in a good way"
malina - "what, they aren't gonna snog?"
helnik - "they're... what do you say... enemies to lovers. nina is a badass"
kanej - "this man is so emotionally constipated. say you love her!!"

look i've said it before and i'll say it again: joining a fandom with not that much fanfiction means that you can't find the incredibly specific fic you want to read, which means you have to write it. which then means i have to write a lot of fanfiction and i am nowhere near organised enough for that

i probably won't have the next chapter of stupid things up today, either, so i'm considering postponing this chapter! I'll post this one on tuesday, and then we'll just continue on like that, i suppose.
i'm so sorry about this. i hate it when i don't meet writing deadlines, but i've been quite sick this week, and i've also had to look after my mum. it's been busy! but hopefully we'll be back on track soon.
thank you for your patience! (and i promise i haven't given up on it - quite the opposite, actually!)

okay okay so if i was writing the show this is what i'd do. (i am not writing the show so this is categorically not what is going to happen)
a story just about mary and john, so all the typical romantic things - the first time they meet, dates they go on, etc. but THEN you start to include mary being a hunter, and how much she hates it and has to hide it and lie to john. and then you get into john's daddy issues - he also has an abusive dad, and that's part of the reason why he wants to run away with mary. the season ends with mary making that deal, and it's revealed that dean has been narrating because he has been stood along side them the entire time. the finale ends with cas pressing his fingers to deans forehead and sending them back to their time
mary has made her deal, so she has to make the most of her ten years. she grieves, a bit, and starts to wrap up some of her hunts that she knows she'll never come back to. she struggles with nightmares and the fear of becoming a mother and her trauma from hunting, all while trying to keep up the pretense that she's a normal woman, as john gets increasingly worried about her. one day he finds one of her hunting journals, and not understanding half of it, he summons a demon and demands they tell him what's going on. a rather disgruntled crowley (or ruby, either is good) explains the deal that mary made, and then he goes home to confront her about it. she tells him everything, and then immediately goes into labour, the finale ending with her naming her child dean.
time skip... dean's four years old, sammy's 6 months, and *shock horror*... mary dies! then we get a super depressing series about how john treated them as kids, through the eyes of resurrected mary reading john's journal in season 12. we get codas of her working with the bmol and her kids and cas in the future (i.e. s12 and 13), all while she realises how john treated them as kids. they have the whole lebanon dinner thing, then the episode ends with john dying - i.e. the end of the journal - and then mary's death in s14.
mary wakes up in heaven with john, and is met with an incredibly apologetic jack who explains how heaven has been reformed. john is super angry with the kid, and not at all like how she remembers him. they argue a bit as she starts to realise that this john is not the one she fell in love with, and everything feels off. then, dean arrives in heaven not more than a year after her, and he drinks too much and refuses to talk to people, just driving around in his car and ocassionally visiting them, where everyone pretends he doesn't flinch every time his dad asks him a question. sam arrives and all the winchesters are reunited once again... but someone is missing. bobby ends up coming over for their celebratory dinner and everything explodes - bobby starts talking about cas, dean gets super defensive and explodes, john starts yelling at his kid and then everyone starts yelling at john. then, cas shows up, full Angel Of The Lord, blue eyes and wings and the whole shebang, and end series.
destiel reunion. that's all there is it's just 8 episodes of dean and cas making out while sam and eileen avoid them in comedy fashion. oh and john is in hell btw
