Reblog if you have read fan fiction better than some published books
Help me prove a point
I have never reblogged anything faster.
Unfortunate for the books, but speaks loads about the quality of some fan fics
You have no idea how many
HELL YES I HAVE <3
omg REBLOGGING. Especially with the drivel published in the last 10 years. Fanfic all the way. I don’t even read fiction novels anymore, just nonfiction.
Honestly I’m having a hard time reading published fiction a lot lately because most of what I’m seeing is at a level of quality where if it WERE a fic, I’d be hitting the back button. Reason #102983 why it pisses me off SO MUCH that fanfiction is such a joke to so many people, especially by people who don’t think it’s “serious” writing.
All of the above, and you can’t get “buyer’s remorse” from fanfiction.
ObRepeat that before copyright law was a thing, fanfiction was just called “fiction”.
I honestly can’t believe this right now. I was complaining to my bf about some Kotex tampons I had used, going on a bit of a rant about how bad they were, and on a whim I decided to go to the website and leave a review so other people who might get them would know better.
I’ve never written a tampon review in my life (it’s not something I ever anticipated doing) so I had a little fun getting very passionate about my thoughts, and then went to submit…. Only to receive the words: ‘Your review text contains inappropriate language.’ I was confused at first, I mean I was pretty emphatic, but I didn’t cuss at all… and then I realized: I had typed the word ‘vagina.’
You can’t type the word ‘vagina’ on a TAMPON review because it’s considered inappropriate.
KOTEX, a company that makes OVER A BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR primarily selling products to people with vaginas, thinks that someone typing the word “VAGINA” in a review of a product that goes IN THEIR VAGINA is being inappropriate and needs to be censored.
I retyped “v*gina” with an asterisk like it was a swear word, submitted and it went to preview mode with no problem. But I’m still kind of in shock… Honestly, what is wrong with Kotex that they think they need to protect tampon users from the word ‘vagina’?
If you didn’t think our society’s fear of the vagina was absurd, here you go. It’s cartoonish.
I suppose it could be to cockblock people who want to call other posters/authors/whatever a cunt but say “vagina” to get around it.
In related news, feminine hygiene is such a personal issue! Kotex U tampons are my locked-in favourite, I will not buy anything else unless I have an emergency in a truck stop 20ks outside of Nhill.
That awkward moment when Diablo shows up to your religious protest
This reminds me of an old story I heard from a friend. One year, an anime con was being held the same weekend as a Bible Conference. This dude in an Ifrit costume, stilts and all, gets into the elevator, all hunched over, on his way down to the lobby. Before he could reach the lobby, the elevator stopped on another floor. Two old ladies clutching bibles were about to step on when they see this giant red demon-creature.
And in his deepest voice he says, “Going down?”
They shrieked and ran off to find another elevator.
I think Diablo is the dorkiest end boss ever, but this is genius
