Where do people get off complaining and leaving hateful reviews on fanfiction.

Seriously. 

Fanfiction is free entertainment.

Fanfiction writers do not get paid, and writing fanfiction takes a lot of time and effort. And it is just plain rude to make hateful comments about someone’s creative work.

Now constructive criticism is totally different. Constructive criticism is wonderful, it is how writers grow, but even then there is a way to put it diplomatically.

There is a difference between being rude and being constructive and I think a lot of reviewers don’t understand that difference. Either that or they are just jerks.

So seriously, if you don’t have anything nice or constructive to say about a fic, stop reading and don’t say anything at all.

My cousin’s kids have toothbrushes that play “We will rock you” while you brush your teeth. My question: Do those come with the Roslin Adama theme?

Damn. You guys are right. The Roslin Adama theme makes me cry and that wouldn’t be very practical. Maybe the Colonial Anthem instead?

My dream for The Avengers: Age of Ultron is that it starts out with each of the Avengers getting a call early in the morning that they need to come in, and when they get to Clint, they’re like, “We still don’t have Romanoff’s new location, so if you have a way of contacting her, pass the message to her as well.” Clint replies, “I’ll see if I can track her down,” and hangs up the phone. Then he rolls over in bed and is like, “Hey Nat, get up, they need us.”

This was fascinating to watch and to listen to. As I was watching, I couldn’t help but think how grateful I am that my high-school AP English teacher constantly told us that usage dictates definition. That is, if a word is widely used to mean B, then it means B, even if it used to mean A. He loved to say remind us that the best thing about language is that it’s always evolving, that a language that doesn’t evolve according to the way people speak and write it is a dying language.

I am one of those people who walks around mentally correcting everyone else’s grammar and punctuation…but I try to only do it mentally, and never unkindly. I feel the need to correct misspelled words and misplaced commas the same way some people can’t help but clean up clutter, or aren’t able to sleep unless they’ve double-checked all the locks, or can’t walk by a Rubik’s Cube without solving it. I’m not doing it to prove my superiority; it’s just the way my brain works. If I think someone will find it helpful to know about an error, I will tell them politely; otherwise, I try to just keep my mouth shut and move on. Because you know what? Not everyone’s brains work the same way mine does. That guy who can’t keep their/they’re/there straight might be too busy thinking about a cure for AIDS or how to get clean water to people who don’t have easy access to it to worry about something that doesn’t come naturally to him. And that’s okay.
