Then a very loud clamour, consisting of dozens of metal pieces crashing and glasses shattering. The last thing the camera saw was her reddening corpse on a bed of glass. The screen turned to black as i saw myself on the wheelchair

2022.01.16 16:32 SolarWalrus Fanfic PSA: Wattpad->Ao3 Transplants, Please Stop Doing This For The Love of God
Wattpad can be a good start for anyone’s creative writing career, but let’s be honest here, it’s not the most mature place to grow as a writer…
With content creators and popular animators name dropping the Archive more and more often, is it any surprise that young Wattpad and Twitter users are flocking to Ao3 in droves?
And I DO mean droves… this is the current wait time to create an account. 64,000 people are in the queue. An 11 day wait as of today. It was less than 24 hours when I made mine back in 2017.
With all the shitty history and anti-fanwork practices of places like FanFiction dot net, Tumblr and Livejournal throughout the years, Ao3 is comparatively lenient in what it allows. Despite this, it does have some very strict rules as a functioning archive.
Rules, that these droves of fans are BREAKING DAILY.
Most commonly this one. Non-fanwork content. And most commonly within a certain Minecraft adjacent fandom.
Here’s some screenshots I just took.
Notice how those posts were all created today? Fun fact, those were all on the same page too. They literally outnumbered the other short stories I filtered for.
The Archive is not your personal blog. It is not Twitter. It is not Tumblr. It is not Wattpad. You CANNOT post this shit.
If you’re gonna switch sites, at the very least read the rules. I get it, rules are boring, they suck. But damn it, this website is my home and I’m getting really tired of reporting every last lingering request, empty prompt and social media plug I see.
This site is run by volunteers. The small team of people that have to look into my unfortunate reports are flooded with rule breaking posts 24/7.
Please, if you chance upon any of this sludge along your Ao3 journey, be a good neighbor and report the fuck out of them.

Woburn used to lay down these wooden boards in Leland park and fill them up with water to make skating rinks, but since the pandemic they’ve stopped doing so. Is there any similar places around Boston? Thanks.

2022.01.16 16:31 Constant-Ad4761 Recently found out my mum was adopted after 27 years.
So, my mum dropped the bombshell a few days ago that she was adopted at 6 weeks old (she found out when she was a kid). My grandparents already had a daughter, but wanted a second child and went down the adoption route when they couldn't conceive.
I'm kind of feeling a mixture of emotions since everyone in my family pretty much knew and never told me due to certain events happening in the family, like my mum being hospitalised for diabetes and me dealing with depression.
My grandparents passed away a few years ago, I was extremely close to them and they adored me, but it feels like I've just been lied to my whole life. I feel upset because of this, but also angry, disappointed..but, it's also sort of carthatic since it explains a lot about my mum's personality and I can kind of empathise with her. My grandparents raised her well, but she had to deal with neighbours singling her out for being adopted. It also explains why my aunt and her have different hair types, why my aunt is a bit distant, etc.
My mum has said she wants to find out information about her birth parents, but she doesn't want to build a relationship with them. Apparently, she was the product of a woman having an affair with a married man.
Has anyone had a similar experience? I feel lucky and fortunate enough that me and my mum have both had a great upbringing, but I can't help but feel a bit of a disconnect now. It's still pretty fresh, so it's going to take a bit of time for me to get used to.

2022.01.16 16:31 yarisuse Which book o site web about folklore of around the world (especially on Latin America and Asia) and urban legends recommend to read (and investigate)?
I am reading a recompilation of fantastic literature (by american latin and spanish female writers), and last night read about Lobisón that actually is pretty similar to wolfman, it's an argentine lycanthrope. And looked on Wikipedia is like the tale explained: The seventh son of a marriage will have the curse of Lobisón. This and other tales of the book has really native folklore, and now I have curiosity about folklore around the world, especially of legends and ancient oral tradition on far away countries and latin american places (I am from Mexico and I think just know a little bit of stories about folklore and urban legends, 'cause is a huge country and never visited or search south of Mexico). I know this isn't horror horror literature, but pretty much book drinks from fairly tales and folklore.
Can you recommend something? Don't care it's about your places. (Every Spanish translation of a book it's welcome.)
