I’m going to start off by saying how sad I am at the negativity that has recently consumed the TB/SVM community. I don’t know where all this really started since I have been MIA with my grandmother’s sickness and then her death. I recently saw a post in one of the groups on Facebook about the cliques of our wonderful fandom. I don’t know who some consider in these cliques. For me I think of kjwrit, Makesmyheadspin, California Kat, and our dearly beloved EricIzMine. Maybe that’s because I think they are all wonderfully creative writers. I don’t know. If there are others I don’t know about these elusive friendship circles and truthfully I don’t care. I love my readers and the writers that I read. The End.
It saddens me that there’s been a great decline in our fandom and wonderful writers are leaving to write for other fandoms. I only read TB/SVM fanfiction except for what Kittyinaz and Bertie Bott has written on The Vampire Diaries / Twilight. I’m never going to write or read about other fandoms. I know many of you do read others and that’s fine too. Whatever floats your boat. I don’t know where the ugliness has come from in some of the posts I’ve read today but I wanted to address it because it has made me sad. It has hurt my feelings.
This is what I’m going to do. I’m not going to change how or what I write or read. I may not like your stories but I’m going to support the hell out of you because you’re writing what you want to write. Do what you want to but please lets support one another. Let’s not let ugliness in our community make our writers stop writing. We have too little of them left.
My advice is that you read what you like and don’t read what you don’t like. Trying to increase negativity in our fandom doesn’t help anyone of us.
Those are my thoughts. All of the ugliness of the day has made my muse go and hide. She so wanted to come out and play with SVM Eric last night. Now she’s crying in the corner.
