Wishing everybody out there a very merry Christmas!

It doesn't matter if you celebrate or not, just remember: Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. (Martin Luther King said that.)

Calling all artists!

Hey everyone, it looks like we are low on artists again. Could I ask a favor of all of you following this comm?

Could you post in your journals, and maybe in some fandom comms (only if they allow it) and whatever other ways you might know to invite folks who do fan works other than writing to come claim a story prompt?

We're looking for:

Avengers
NCIS
Stargate SG1 and SGA
Supernatural
Supernatural RPF
Teen Wolf
Star Trek / Suits

Thanks!

Special Announcement

It's the time of the year again. IT'S THE HOTEL MANAGERS BIRTHDAY! Please all come down to the hotel lounge. Schnitzel and beer will be waiting for you.

Special guest: Dean Winchester



HAPPY BIRTHDAY, herminekurotowa :D

August 21st: Fanfiction Writers Appreciation Day

It is not surprising news that fanfiction writers are highly underappreciated.

There’s something wrong with the numbers: let’s take a popular fic with almost 4k hits. For let’s say 700 readers, it will get about 50 comments and 300 Kudos (those numbers are just an example, sometimes it’s worse than that). Maybe I’m being too kind, maybe not, but things stay the same; there’s something wrong here. Can you see it?

It takes us days, weeks, sometimes months to write a story for you. We write for ourselves yes, but we also write to share. We write to offer you content about your favourite characters. We write to bring our and your ships to life. It takes you a fraction of second to leave a Kudos, ten seconds to one, two or a few minutes to leave a comment.

And here lies our problem: there’s no proper sharing if there’s no proper feedback. An author not getting comments is generally a sad author. If I didn’t get feedback I’d wonder what’s the point in keeping on writing. A comment makes a writer’s day, most of the time even motivates them to write more.

Another important thing thrandythefabulous and I noticed: why on Earth do so many readers don’t comment (even kudos) if the fic has been up for a little more than a week or two? Why? Your feedback is still welcomed and much appreciated.

We write for ourselves, but also we write for you. And sadly, many readers are being quite… ungrateful, when giving feedback is the least they can do to thank the people offering them stories for free.

So, before we get started on our little day, let’s talk about comments:

It doesn’t matter if other readers already said what you wanted to say, we’ll still love reading it again in your words.

It doesn’t matter the fic has been up for weeks or months or years; comments on those ones are unexpected and so, it makes them ever better.

It doesn’t matter if you don’t have much to say, we’ll be glad anyway.

Most authors leave the comment section open to people who don’t have an AO3 account, which means you can still… comment! How amazing is that.

That brings us to our little Fanfiction Writers Appreciation Day.

The point of this day is simple; on August 21st, writers and readers alike would go on AO3 (or any fanfiction website really), on Tumblr, and leave a comment on their favourite fics (even the fics they enjoyed!) and/or send their authors a message about their works.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve already or never commented. It doesn’t matter if the author doesn’t know about this post. It doesn’t matter if the author already knows how much you love their work.

Just let writers know you love the fics they write for you, simple as that!

And well, don’t forget to keep leaving a Kudos and a comment in the future, and make writers happy!

Help!!

I have this totally wonderful, intriguing fic on Fanfiction.net that I want to download. I know you can't c&p from ffnet, but I have something on Calibre to download from there; I already did it once, but it's too long ago, and I can't manage it a second time. :(

Anyone out there who can help me?
