every person who reblogs this will get a definition of a random word in their askbox
I’ve literally never been more excited.
I’ll be waiting…
“Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life - well, valuable, but small - and sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven’t been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn’t it be the other way around? I don’t really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So good night, dear void…” -Kathleen,You’ve got mail

I’ve never really liked sitting back and doing nothing. Or running away from a problem. I know a lot of people have just left Fanfiction.net rather than deal with their crap, and I can respect that, but I can’t do it myself. And, obviously, I’m not the only one who thinks the users have a right to give the people running this outfit a piece of our minds.
I’m asking you all to read this petition and at least consider signing. Even if you’ve ditched the site. Even if you don’t use it. If you’ve stopped writing fanfiction or never did. Sign it because you agree that writers should be allowed to do exactly what the site’s motto says, “Unleash Your Imagination”, without fear of our stories being ripped down for vague and/or ridiculous reasons. Sign it to help an ignored majority final be heard.
Sign it because, even though it might be ‘just fanfiction’ to some of you, for some people, it’s more. It’s hope. It’s a lifeline. It’s that one bright spot in their day. It’s a life-changer. An eye-opener. An outlet.
It’ll take, like, what? Five minutes of your time? Are you really that busy? You’re surfing Tumblr, probably procrastinating or bored… Come on. You can say you helped someone out today. Supported a cause.
(It’s a great procrastination excuse! ”Hey, at least I signed that petition! That means I did something!”)
Also, if you are a Fanfiction user, I hear there’s some sort of ‘Fanfiction.net Blackout’ being planned for June 23rd GST time. Basically, you stay off of FF.net for the entire day. Not one hit should reach that site. Show them what the site’s worth without the fans who it was supposedly made for. If you can’t do anything else, at least participate in that. Gives you a great excuse to lay of the Fanfiction for a day and, I don’t know, go outside? I think that’s what the ‘normal’ people do… Or you could do what I’m gonna do and read a book while scratching out my next fanfic chapter in a notebook. Yeah, that sounds like a winning day there.
Maybe you think I’m being ridiculous, sitting here typing out an argument in an attempt to save fanfiction, of all things. And maybe I am being ridiculous. But I’d rather be ridiculous and stand up for something I believe than squash down my opinions and allow myself to be walked all over yet again. I’ve been a push-over one too many times and nothing but frustration with myself for letting my thoughts and feelings be ignored and unheard has ever come of it.
I’d rather open my mouth and be thought a fool than keep it shut and know in my heart how foolish I really am.
Thank you for your time, Tumblr. And however you decide to take my rant, may your choice be what you truly believe and not one that will give you a twinge of regret.
She really knows how to write.
“He refused. Twice, he refused. Then, one day—Will was twelve or so—there was a knock on the Institute door and Charlotte answered it. She would have been eighteen then, I think. Will was standing there on the steps. She told me he was covered in road dust and dirt as if he’d been sleeping in hedgerows. He said, ‘I am a Shadowhunter. One of you. You have to let me in. I have nowhere else to go.’”
“He said that? Will? ‘I have nowhere else to go’?”
He hesitated. “You understand, all this is information I heard from Charlotte. Will’s never mentioned a word of any of it to me. But that’s what she claims he said.”
“I don’t understand. His parents—they’re dead, aren’t they? Or they would have come looking for him.”
“They did,” Jem said quietly. “A few weeks after Will arrived, Charlotte told me, his parents followed. They came to the front door of the Institute and banged on it, calling for him. Charlotte went into Will’s room to ask him if he wanted to see them. He had crawled under the bed and had his hands over his ears. He wouldn’t come out, no matter what she did, and he wouldn’t see them. I think Charlotte finally went down and sent them away, or they left of their own accord, I’m not sure—”
“Sent them away? But their child was inside the Institute. They had a right—”
“They had no right.” Jem spoke gently enough, Tessa thought, but there was something in his tone that put him as far away from her as the moon. “Will chose to join the Shadowhunters. Once he made that choice, they had no more claim on him. It was the right and responsibility of the Clave to turn them away.”
