Fenced-In Acre

Writing, Life, and Other Things At Which I Don't Always Succeed

A lesson I learned in fandom

If you want to piss off your detractors, tell them you don’t care what they think. 
If you really want to piss of your detractors, actually don’t care what they think.

The latter is much, much harder.

How Memorizing "$19.05" Can Help You Outsmart the MTA


We’ve all been there. The train is coming into the station, and you grab your MetroCard and quickly try and swipe it at a turnstile.

"Please Swipe Again". "Please Swipe Again". "Insufficient Fare".

The last two words are killer. You think to yourself “I swear I had a balance on this card”….

Reblog if you are a fanfiction writer




I would love to follow and meet more people that loves to write. Writing is the best thing you can do, the most awesome thing on this planet.

Fanfiction authors. We understand each other. 😊

Well, I was once… ~major guilt about still unfinished fic w/ roughly 2000 people waiting for the last chapter~ 

Hell yes and despite all the fuckery I’ve seen I still feel strongly about the value of fanwork as a literary form. Not as a precursor to shit, not as a means to get you a million dollar book deal by changing some names, but as a fascinating, worthy art wholly unto itself. 

And to the people who argue that people should be able to steal from creators and freely publish because fanfic being free is an example of “women’s work being undervalued”—you can suck my non-existent dick. The very fact that you think I need to get paid in order for my fanwork to have value shows how little you understand its value in the first place.

If White Characters Were Described Like People Of Color In Literature




You need to read this.

White people, this is embarrassing.


I just had this conversation in the car today, in fact. 

Friend: “What does it mean, if a character’s skin is described as being ‘Mocha?’” 

Me: “It means I’m done reading that book.”

and I was actually very pleased with it. 

Here there be book spoilers, but I will talk generally about the movie so as not to spoil what ended up on screen…

Pixar can never top this.

Can we take a moment to appreciate the fact that the best loved line from this movie comes from a character we never even got to see?
