1996: Hermione’s mood has taken a negative turn after the party Ginny hosts, with questions about the approaching war and Draco Malfoy’s part in it festering in her head. In an attempt to find out answers, she devises an absurd scheme that might just backfire on her in more ways than one.
You know when you know you should be writing, and you desperately want to be writing because god damn you just want to publish this piece of shit story, and you can’t stop thinking about writing when you’re doing other things, BUT WHEN YOU’RE STARING AT THE WORD DOC EVERYTHING JUST COMES UP BLANK what the hell is this
Anonymous asked : I'm just hurting because dramionficlists made me feel super special because it gave our fandom something that other fandoms don't have ;_;
Aw babe :/ There are other, actually very similar, if not the “same”, blogs in our fandom which are extra dedicated to recommending fanfics, with the only exception maybe that they aren’t updating as often per day as Mandy used to (which, in the end, made her delete, as she said). That’s why the blog had been so popular and basically our number one source; the frequent updates also brought a lot of submits from the fans, so in the end it turned out to be this huge place with recommendations from basically all the fans. So, we already have recommendation blogs, just maybe with slower updates, but that’s something we all can definitely live with and as I had stated previously, if they’re too slow for some, those people are still capable enough to search for themselves. ;)
Anonymous asked : It's people like that anon who makes people leave tumblr. Tumblr is one of the worst social networking sites when it comes to cyber bullying, right up there with facebook and twitter. She's not the first nor the last good tumblr user to leave and can't say I blame her.
Ugh, yes! u_u Like tumblr/any social media site is there for your free time, it’s not a priority. And the moment you start realizing that you care about a blog (in this case) way too much that you are actually abandoning certain things in your life (not studying anymore, not sleeping enough, gradually cutting off the contact to important people like your family or friends, your mental/physical health is starting to get worse etc.) you need to stop. I think that’s also why she deleted and didn’t leave the blog just like that, because she might have felt that it would be way too risky that way and she would just fall back into the pattern way too quickly again, you know?
I’m going to be honest, I loved that blog. It was a big resource for a lot of people here. But in the end, finding fanfiction isn’t that hard, it might take you some time, but you’ll find everything by yourself. Then there are also a few other recommendation blogs and creating a blog with a system like hers isn’t that difficult. So, while I get why people are upset - I mean I wasn’t exactly all happy about the news too - I don’t get why so many are complaining about why she didn’t give the blog to someone else or why she deleted in the first place etc.; her reasons are her own, the moment tumblr gets a priority, you need to do something against it.
It’s not the end of the world and people are capable enough to find stories for themselves or make a new recommendation blog.
