"This is the internet. There are literally hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people, writing ... fanfics. Chances are that at least one of those hundreds of thousands or millions of people is not only writing a ... fanfic with an extremely similar plot to yours, but unless you have evidence that proves otherwise there is a very good chance that this person is doing a better job of it than you are."
"If we as a culture have gotten to the point where the average citizen seriously values the right of Avi Arad (Marvel CEO) to buy himself a bigger jet over the right of creative kids to express themselves, then we, as a culture, are really dumb."

"The next worst word you can couple with the word 'fan' is, you guessed it, the word 'fiction'..."
I've seen some RWBYOCs that follow the first rule, but don't know about the second. I'm putting this out so you don't invest in something that isn't accurate to the rule. And I like that you think about these things because I was the same one day, watching someone else's work, dreaming up my own.
Were not monsters. Vaughan spoke directly at the head doctor. We werent prepared for this. If we were we wouldve done things differently. But we werent, so were just trying to survive the best we can. Thats why we do awful things sometimes not because we dont care. We just want to live and we want to protect the only people we have left. We do bad things but... its not our fault. None of this was supposed to happen.
Oh Draco, Draco! I screamed while getting an orgasm when all of a sudden I saw a tattoo I had never seen before on Dracos arm. It was a black heart with an arrow through it. On it in bloody gothic writing were the words Vampire!
People love a feel-good story of someone who goes through a traumatic event and comes out strong and determined on the other side; its life affirming and reassures everyone that things are okay, the woman pressed on. People dont like to think about a victim's anger. It makes them uncomfortable when human beings react to horror like human beings. They shame the victim for being upset or anything less than phoenix-like. They want to feel that justice has been done and forgiveness meted out to all parties so they can feel better about themselves. It brings on a creeping suspicion that if forgiveness won't be granted to others, maybe it wont be granted to them. If justice is not done, perhaps they truly live in an unjust world. They dont like to think about pain because it reminds them of their own. But pain is something you can never escape, can you?
Dashs eyes widened, and her face contorted in fear. Then she started to laugh and said, in a voice bordering on hysteria, Woo, you really got me there, Pinkie Pie. I mean, tricking me into thinking Im gonna get made into a cupcake? I gotta tell you, this the best prank yet. You win, youre the best.
