#one of my favorite posts ever
When someone draws something for fandom, and it comes across my dash, the fact that SOMEONE DREW THIS never leaves my mind.
Not once. Not even for one second. My very first thoughts upon seeing fanart are never about the quality, or the content, or how hot the porn is (or isn’t), or whether I ship that, or if I need it on my blog, or whether or not it’s a photo and omg I should just kill myself I’ll never be this good.
My first thoughts are never about myself, quite frankly.
Because someone drew this. And that’s cool! They liked it so much that they wanted to draw it—despite whatever hangups they have about their skills. They liked it, and they drew it.
And then they SHARED IT. WITH YOU.
This is someone who can see every casual, dismissive, awesome, thoughtless, cruel comment you make. Someone who is going to adjust their way of drawing, their way of thinking, their way of sharing things with other people, their entire attitude—based on how people react. Drawing is scary. Sharing what you’ve drawn is scarier.
I’m not saying you have to make room. Or be nice. I’m not saying you have to do anything. But if you’d stop and think about what the fuck you’re doing or saying for an entire second, then maybe it wouldn’t be so shitty and terrifying for artists to share their talent with you in the first place.
