Good thing about having a place on AO3: we can get away from the spam (~teasers~, the 5 million introductions a day, etc). Bad thing: still not enough fics D:
Anonymous

Clearly you should be writing more fics anon.

Wait so has the salad officially moved to AO3?

No no no, nothing like that :3 Mindcrack has it’s own tag on AO3 now, which is great because its so easily searchable and such. Its a really good place for fic, its where you’ll find a great deal of focus on quality over quantity! For a long while I’d been wanting to post my fics from Mindcrack on AO3 but we didn’t have a fandom section dedicated to us to allow it. Now we do :3

And it’s important to note that while you need an account to post there, its still possible to leave anonymous reviews, leave favourites (called kudos there) and browse the fandoms without one.

If someone wants an invitation and I know them, I’m open to being asked for one :3 Has to be someone I know well though, because I think if they do bad stuff then it reflects poorly on the person inviting them. Or you guys can always sign up for an invitation to be sent out to you!

Me posting my works on AO3 in no way is me leaving the salad or means that salad is moving to AO3! So don’t worry!

Okay, as much as I love my own stories, And A Bottle of Scotch does not deserve to be the one with the most kudos on AO3

It’s Bribery or hell, FTL: The Jack and the reason why is simple (even though I’m about to say it really weird):

it seems wrong for the student to get more credit than the teacher.

Thero was the one who made me ship SMS, it was her stories that made me keep looking at the Salad, it was her stories that probably made me stay with the Salad and write what I have written today.

And it just seems so fucked up to me that her stories barely have any kudos’.

So for the love of god, go to her AO3 page and either read some things you’ve never read or reread the things you know you like and give them a kudos for God’s sake. Hell, go check out all the new Mindcrack fics that have been posted to AO3 now and kudos them.

I already queued this, but let me just say

I am SO SO SO SO SOOOOOOOOOOO glad that Thero is now posting her works to AO3. I love the Salad, and Dreamwidth was a great way for it to get started, but AO3 has a lot more traffic on the site and is much easier to search. I have Bribery and Bound both bookmarked ( the DW community posts) but now I also have them bookmarked on AO3, and even if I didn’t, I could find them easily at any time.

On top of that, her works deserve SO MANY MORE VEIWS than I think they’ve gotten (there’s no way to track that on DW either; another pro of posting to AO3) because they’re all incredibly well done, high quality and just FUN to read. Bribery is a masterpiece, and easily the #1 fanfiction the fandom has to offer. While I understand that the Mindcrack fandom (the section of it that ships and writes fanfiction at least) is very small when compared to fandoms like Supernatural, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Star Trek, Hannibal etc, I still don’t think her works have gotten the traffic and praise they deserve.

If you like Mindcrack fanfiction, I urge you to please signal boost this post, go to Thero’s AO3 and read her works, leave Kudos and comments, and let her know that her stuff is good.

I’m not just saying it as a friend of Thero’s, I’m also saying this as someone who has been a long time fan of her writing, and as someone who was inspired to be a bigger part of the community and to return to writing because of her.

I can’t handle this praise oh my gosh you guys are both so wonderful you’re gonna make me cryyy <3

Rewatching old Buffalo Wizards videos and I had forgotten that Rob can speak French

That needs to become a thing in fanfics

He can? holy cow

Well the only time he showed it off was here

So now not only can Beef speak Portuguese for Pause, Rob can speak French for him. Mmmhm.

Pause has such a language kink. I also misstyped ‘such’ and ‘suck’ there, but I bet he’ll do that if they talk foreign to him.

Oh wait, its monday right? I should probably go about setting up that giveaway thing -facepalm- Yesterday kind of wrecked me a bit, sorry for forgetting.
