Hey! So anyone that follows the Baby Mine kidfic universe that I write will know that I promised some one-shots. Well, this is one that I wrote a while ago for phelpshobbit’s birthday, and I just figured I’d upload it in case anyone is interested :)
SUMMARY: Being a father meant the job of removing spiders and various other creepy-crawlies from the house. Aidan wasn’t sure if he could handle that responsibility.
So my best friend in the whole entire world just wrote her first Aidean fanfic! She’s insanely nervous about it, and it’d mean a hell of a lot to me if you lovely people could give it a read, maybe leave a small comment or something to make her feel better? Thank you!
TITLE: Grafton Street
SUMMARY: When he reaches the age of thirty, Dean decides that the only way to get his life to go somewhere is to pack up his bags and move half way round the world to Dublin. That’s where he meets a curly haired busker with big dreams, and his life is never the same again.
*psst* so it seems as if the amount of fanfic is starting to go up again, but could you all be dears and remember to leave a comment on these new pieces? it doesn’t have to be long but it’ll make the writers feel so much more better and more likely to put out more work faster, i promise you. thanks!
Lately I’ve seen more and more posts in the aidean tag of people complaining about the lack of new aidean fic (or sometimes even the lack of the right kind of aidean fic).
I just wanted to make a quick comment about this. Now I’m not speaking for all the writers here, but I know a few share my opinions on the matter.
I’m not sure if perhaps you’re thinking that you’re encouraging writers by doing this, but to be honest it often has the opposite effect. It’s quite negative and to be honest it feels a little ungrateful. A lot of effort goes into writing. It’s time consuming and can be exhausting and a lot of the time the process can be very slow. Fanfic writers do this stuff for free in their own free time, they don’t have to write, but they choose to because it happens to be their passion and they want to share it with the rest of the fandom.
Wanting new fic is great, that’s fantastic. But there are ways of going about this. Outright demanding fic seems rude, complaining about the lack of the fic (especially when new fic is being posted) can be demoralising and alienating and if anything it’s a surefire way to get writers to stop posting which is only going to make the problem worse.
Perhaps instead of complaining about how there is no new fic out there, you could encourage writers by posting open prompts, or sharing ideas that you yourself have had but don’t know how to write.
I just wanted to put this out there because I’m not sure if maybe people didn’t realise how their posts were coming across. Thanks for reading.
TITLE: The Ghost Inside Our House
SUMMARY: Dean and Aidan have just moved to London and are looking forward to setting up a new life together, when it all goes wrong and Dean is taken from Aidan. However that is not the end: something is keeping him here and Dean won’t be able to move on until he finds out what it is.
Based on the film ‘Ghost’
Hello! Susie (Red_Shiloh/plaidanturners) and I both got inspired to write this, so we decided to kill two birds with one stone and write it together! Obviously there is character death and it will get more angsty as it goes on, but I hope you like it anyway :)
