So Bad It Hurts

I like bad fic and I cannot lie.

Anonymous asked: Could you write a review of the legendary it's-so-awfully-bad-it-is-almost-a-talent fanfiction 'My Immortal' or maybe for a few chapters? It would give a thousand posts. (I hope the English is fine. It isn't my mother language). By the way, I love your Tumblr.

Thanks!

I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I won’t touch My Immortal or My Inner Life or any of those really really famous badfics because there’s very little I could say on them that hasn’t been done before.

insanityunderhats asked: I've been following you for a little while now and have decided to start up my own fanfiction blog. Any advice for one who is kind of new to snark blogging or blogging in general?

Have fun with it!

If you don’t feel like reading something or posting that day, don’t.  If it becomes boring to you, take a break.

Avoid being cruel.

Listen to all criticism.

Be friendly and approachable.

Anonymous asked: I was personally re-reading some of my old fanfictions and I was torn between some really bad sue-isms and some really fucking awesome plot twists

That’s cool though!  You had some good ideas, and hopefully now that you’re older, you can find a way to get those ideas to work out without resorting to cliches :)

scarlet-rosepetals asked: Assuming you're intimately familiar with My Immortal at this point (which given the blog I take it you are), do you have any tips for someone who's going to be cosplaying Ebony? I want to be so painfully in character that it causes those who've even heard of the fic in passing to collapse in a laughing fit.

I’d go with the character as portrayed in the My Immortal webseries- obvious bright-colored hair extensions, too much eyeliner/eyeshadow, Hot Topic-esque corsets with really bad lace, maybe some striped stockings.

Anonymous asked: Okay, I'm just gonna come out and ask, how do you say "this character had giant boobs" without sounding stupid, offensive, or like you're body shaming. Big breasts are usually pretty noticeable and I want to be able to say it without sounding dumb.

hmmm.

You could say they are busty?  You’re right, it is often the kind of thing that people notice about someone pretty quickly.

Anonymous asked: What does ENOBY mean, as a tag? I understand it's a character from a terrible fic, but what kind of post is it used for?

It’s my “here be a Mary Sue” tag.

Anonymous asked: You said something before about Asian BB creams. What is your opinion of them?

I’ve never tried any on my face, unfortunately!  I need really full coverage and have super oily skin and BB creams don’t seem like they’d do the trick.

However, I’ve heard great things about the Skin79 stuff you can get on Amazon.  It’s not super expensive, so it may be worth the try if you’re looking for something relatively lightweight.

The American BB creams I’ve tried I hated!  My foundation standby is Revlon Colorstay Oily/Combination forumula in Buff.
