What is significant about fan fiction is that it often spins the kind of stories that showrunners wouldn’t think to tell, because fanficcers often come from a different demographic. The discomfort seems to be not that the shows are being reinterpreted by fans, but that they are being reinterpreted by the wrong sorts of fans - women, people of colour, queer kids, horny teenagers, people who are not professional writers, people who actually care about continuity (sorry). The proper way for cultural mythmaking to progress, it is implied, is for privileged men to recreate the works of privileged men from previous generations whilst everyone else listens quietly.

This is a song that’s not really about nightblogging. This is my first time uploading my own audio, so this might end up being a terrible idea, who knows ;;;

Its 2 am but im barely sleepin

Just addin to a blog that no one believes in

Is this my fate? I’m always sobbing

Because I’m up late, yeah I’m still nightblogging

No all my ships, they don’t have a chance

My OTP won’t come close to romance

It’s not my fault, all the writers are plotting

All the characters die and I’m still nightblogging

What am I supposed to do when my only relief is Doctor Who, and

What can I do but cry, when the Winchesters, they always die now

I’m falling to pieces; I’m falling to pieces

They say bad things happen for a reason

Who the fuck made that up where is our third season?

My life’s going downhill and there’s no sign of stopping

Schoolwork on the floor and I’m still nightblogging

What am I gonna do

When Hussie makes me so confused

What am I supposed to say

When John Green made me cry with two ‘okays’

I’m falling to pieces, yeah, I’m falling to pieces

Oh, The Avengers, and Korra and Sherlock and Glee

Everyone here watches too much TV

Now I’m tryina make sense why I can’t ever leave

Because Tumblr’s a place that we can escape to

It’s 2 AM but I’m barely sleepin’

Just addin’ to a blog that no one believes in

What am I supposed do when my only relief is Doctor Who 

What can I do but cry, when the Winchesters, they ALWAYS DIE, now

I’m falling to pieces, I’m falling to pieces

I’m falling to (It’s 2 AM and I’m having a breakdown)

I’m falling to (I don’t know what my life has become now)

Oh, I’ll still be bloggin’ yeah

I’m still nightblogging, yeah

Oh, I’ll still be bloggin’, yeah

ippoarts:

tagging your hate is like going to a pasta convention and screaming that you don’t like pasta. you can sit there and argue, “but it’s not a pasta lover’s convention and it did have to do with pasta!” but how many people go to a pasta convention that don’t like pasta?

It’s like my dad never said, “Son, don’t ever pass up an opportunity to draw super buff pokemon for the Internet.”
