HOGWARTS HOUSE: SLYTHERIN
All I wanted was to draw Daryl wrapping Beth’s ankle cause we didn’t get to see it on the show. Simple,right? NO! This piece gave me so much grief/o\ If I don’t post it now I’ll scrap it and I spent too much time on it for that. ;_;
Where we reblog this post and add just nice, positive things people like to read in bethyl fanfic. Tropes, lines, plots, characters, whatever. Because I cringe at all the rudeness some people spew to make writers who do this for the ship and for FREE feel bad about themselves and try to mask it as “constructive criticism”.
Everyone is at a different level in their writing skill. Some of us just do this for fun, some of us are just learning, some of us are professionals. But we’re all here to have fun and learn and try to contribute to the ship. If you don’t like something: CLICK OUT. Why can’t the long ranty posts be about the good things we find? Because you know what actually IS encouraging to a young or new writer? Positive comments. Talking about the positive things and all the talent on our ship and maybe inspiring newer writers to pick up some of the things that as readers we love. That, I think, works far better than trying to put people down.
So if you’re up for it. Try it.
I’ll even start:
- I love No ZA AUs. I love how creative some people are in what universes they can fit Daryl and Beth in. I love seeing how these two people that are completely different and come from different worlds manage to still find each other and fall in love.
[I luv u fren] [So soo much more positive than I was just about to go].
- I really love when people manage to so seamlessly incorporate the other members of the group into their fics. It’s hard to make it all fit right and not be clunky or misplaced, and I feel like everyone struggles with it at some point [or maybe that’s just me hoping I’m not alone haha]. But, people who make Merle work or capture a bit of Fun!Glenn. A bit of teasing from another character. Maybe some Maggie/Beth conversations, serious or lighthearted, about Daryl. I’m always really really happy when I see the other members of Team Atlanta/Farm/Prison used accordingly, whether in “canon” world or au’s.
- I’ve also got a really huge soft spot for Farm!Fic. I like the stories that take place at the farm or start at the farm. And Daryl noticing Beth. Those are lovely.
- I also really love an appropriate build up. I like when things take just the right amount of time, before things start to happen and Daryl and Beth start to realise more of what they’re feeling.
Do not rant about this. Do not rant about this. Be strong. Do not rant about this.
This is going nowhere. I’m gonna read, instead.

-Glenn, you can’t save me. Even if you got this off me, I can’t run and if you help me they’re gonna get both of us.”

dude, being addicted to fanfiction is so weird. You stay in front of your computer for hours a day reading different versions of those same characters falling in love and fucking again, again, again and again. And yet, we’re looking for more, creating more, making fanarts because, apparently, nothing in the world is more fulfilling than fictional love, the love we cannot have. That’s either inspiring or unsettling. Or both.
