The Amazing Velvet Mace’s Genius Diagram about why some fanfiction stories are crazy popular while others, which may be technically better, are not so popular.
The original post is here, and I think it should be considered pan-fandom required reading. I bow to her genius. Everyone study this diagram and internalize it.
All hail Velvet Mace.

I love how she draws the distinction between intellectually satisfying fiction and emotionally satisfying fiction. As she so perfectly puts it: “Being an English major exposed me to plenty of stories where unpleasant and miserable people interact in a highly realistic and nuanced way. Being an avid reader, I’ve also encountered “Sex Pollen turns adorable canon characters into tentacled luv sluts.” And, I don’t know about you, but while I may discuss the first readily in public, it’s the second one that keeps me up until 1 am.”
Sometimes you want to see your faves interacting with other characters in a highly realistic and nuanced way. That’s a good thing. But don’t feel bad if you boot up the computer and think ‘nah, I’m not feeling for highly realistic right now, had a gutful of reality today. I just want to see my precious bb as a tentacle luv slut’.
Four for you Velvet Mace, you go Velvet Mace.

When I first moved to Canada, I showed up to a party and started putting my beer in the fridge. The entire kitchen stopped to stare in wonder and disbelief until someone yelled out ‘don’t fucking waste pizza space. This whole country is a f*ckin icebox’

Canada just gets more and more perfect the more I learn and hear about it.

omg canada i must know more about you

CANADAAAAAA

Petition for all the Marvel actors to agree that whenever Scarlett gets a blatantly sexist question one of the Chrises just takes it instead.
