I wanted to rant about this fanfiction ordeal and how horrible it is but I can’t bring myself to say anything other than I am fed up. Fandom and fanfiction was a way for me to escape and feel good and get my emotions about characters that I love out and that was just shat on. I just don’t know what we, as fans, could have done to be treated the way that we are.
I mean even some of the cast members are seeing it (Holland) and they seem just as fed up as I feel. I don’t understand why you would just come at the people that have supported you (and literally made your show popular)and be so cruel. Fandom isn’t something delicate and all (we can hold our own) but it is sacred.
We are a family, whether we agree on ships or not is irrelevant, even though it takes up most of our time. But regardless, we are all here for the same thing in the end, a great show and expressing how much we love said show. Fanfiction is one of the main ways to express that(Along with fanart, talking about it, making animations and even making gifs). So why? Why would there even be a thought in anyone’s mind to laugh at or make fun of anything created by those that support you and are just expressing themselves? Why would you take someone’s work and just make it seem like shit? Why?
Oops, I ranted. When I wrote this, I was not specifically talking about the cast members because they seemed uncomfortable with the idea, even Tyler Posey was trying to make it seem light. But Jeff was just pushing and he was the main one cracking insults and condescending words.
I give up on Teen Wolf. I feel bad for the cast who didn’t take part because they’re going to lose fans and viewers over this, but I can no longer support a show that uses and abuses its fans like this. The nerve of a man mocking other writers when his own work is itself a fanfic of the original Teen Wolf and his own writing is riddled with problems.
I will continue to enjoy fanfic and fanart, but I refuse to have anything to do with MTV or Teen Wolf itself.
To all the writers out there (and to the artists and vid-makers and so on): don’t lose hope or faith in your own abilities, and don’t let someone like Jeff tell you how good or bad your work is. Don’t let him or anyone else scare you away from something you enjoy.

OMG I COULD PLAY WITH THAT TING FOR HOURS
It’s like having the Despicable Me minions in food format with a bunch of other weirdoes that are too damn cute for their own good. <3
Reblogging this again because of reasons.
