Side Note To Fan Fic Authors

twobirdsonesong:

Here’s the thing.

I read a lot of scripts.  A lot.  From professionals to aspiring writers to complete newbies.  Features and pilots.  Specs and treatments.

And 8 times out of 10 the fan fic that I’ve read over the last, oh, 15 years is leagues better than this stuff.  It’s more inspired.  It’s more compelling.  It’s genre bending and creative and heartfelt.  It’s well-paced and intense and funny and sexy and meaningful.  It’s smart and thoughtful and good.  It’s novel-quality.  Better than, sometimes.

Rare is the script I don’t want to put down, but how often have we stayed up until 3am to get to the last chapter of a 100k fic? And it’s not even a fan fic author’s day job.  This is what they do on the side.  In their spare time.  For free.

So my point is, fan fic authors, you’re good.  You’re good writers and great storytellers.  I know it doesn’t always feel like it, especially if you’re one of the authors who’s not a BNF and doesn’t get the notes/hits that a few do.  And  because some people still view fic as “not real writing.” You guys know the shit that gets made into movies.  You’re better than that.  So be better than that.  If writing is what you think want to do, then just know you’re already doing it.   You’ve already started.

And you’re more talented than you might think.

I didn’t even mean to gif this but I just noticed it and I had to. the first is Amy right before she’s about to admit for the first time out loud to anyone and to herself that she might actually be gay and the second is right after she tells Karma she’s in love with her. and like I know this show has it’s problems and it’s far from perfect but they managed to make this character’s journey from “I think I might like like my best friend” to “I am totally in love with her” so believable and in only eight twenty minute episodes and it’s really funny and Rita’s at her best in these more subtle moments and I’m rambling but PLEASE GIVE THIS SHOW A CHANCE IT’S ACTUALLY REALLY GOOD AND THE SECOND SEASON IS JUST AS GOOD IF NOT BETTER

Rita Volk will win an oscar one day. SHE WILL OK. SHES THE NEXT JENLAW MARK MY WORDS.

I wanna see Santana try to propose to Brittany, but she’s so happy and excited that she gets emotional and starts crying (as she does around Britt), and can’t get the proposal out. Kinda like in Friends with Chandler and Monica. But unlike in Friends, when Brittany tries to help her out Santana gets super stubborn and shakes her head and swallows it all down, and she finally squeaks out a “Will you marry me, Britt-Britt?” And it’s the first time Santana lets every single wall down in front of their friends, and lets them see her cry because she’s so fucking happy and nervous.
