The Fan fictions
This is so accurate it makes me want to cry.
prompt for chippedcupofchai:
Rum goes through the portal with Bae and reverts to his woobie self from Desperate Souls, Belle is a sympathetic teacher who helps him out.
Although the sign on the bus informs its passengers that it is “equipped with a hydraulic lift, for your convenience!” (for the convenience of people in wheelchairs and the elderly and cripples like him), Nick Gold has been around town long enough to know that bus drivers typically don’t notice him. Until he holds up the line by waiting for the bus to lower—and then they notice him.
It’s a simple fact. He harbours no resentment.
But it means that, without fail, he braces his knee for impact, steps onto the pavement the moment the door opens, and tries to hobble out of the way before a swarm of jostling passengers file out of the bus.
Oh, this is truly beautiful, and tailor!Rumplestiltskin is breaking my heart…

Also, this is an excellent representation of the way we step off sinking ships and into the safe harbor of fanfiction.
Albeit usually with a little more crying and less finesse.
Reblogging for the Fanfiction metaphor. Because it is true.
when you think about it fanfiction is actually amazing
there are thousands of brilliantly written novel-length stories kids wrote from their own brains about characters and shows/books/movies they love all twined into the internet and other kids read these 50k+ stories in their own time and invest themselves in it
nobody’s being paid to write it and nobody’s being told to read it, people do it because they legitimately enjoy it
that is just kind of amazing
