You didn't actually need to write hated enemies kissing for clout. You don't magically learn what consent is when you switch from fanfic writing to original writing. That's a You thing. Plenty of fanfic authors have done [checks notes] Dragonball Z fanfic without showing Vegeta getting Mpregged by Goku, or whatever.
If you gave a f#ck about the craft, and writing to hone yourself instead of writing for clout, you would've already been doing it.
Duh, but if you're presenting a poorly told legal philosophy paper of your own making to a crowd of people who can barely understand five+ letter words in a Terms and Conditions text for a website, no amount of "That sounds smart!" should convince you that you sound smart, like no amount of highschool girls and repressed housewives lusting over perpetually-seventeen-year-old Edward Cullen should've convinced Stephenie Meyer that the Twilight series was worth the paper it was printed on. Again, it's a matter of self respect, respect for the craft, and learning to read the room/know the audience and what you want from them that can help you, but there's a surfeit of authors in all levels who simply have no shame and take advantage of passive consumerism and the demand for feelgood schlock.While the morally problematic and crappy-written fic is not a piece of great writing ("Mona Lisa", to quote you!) it can be a piece of good (ok, maybe not good, but decent in said example) fanfic. I just don't think original writing and fic-writing should be counted in the same category. They're both writing and creative work, but they are very different and, IMO, noncomparable, the same way as my legal philosophy textbooks are not comparable to the best novels I've ever read.
That's actually a fine way to sum it up.authors need to be a bit more honest about what it is they want and maybe just F off if they can't be honest or deliver anything good without sycophancy backing them up.
Fight? Where?D...Did I just a fan fic vs original work war?! 0_o In the words of the "Emperor," "Hehehe. Good." I am joking, but Mom and Dad please stop fighting. 0_o
Maybe Finnish people knew the truth about dragons...In Finnish language, "dragon" translates to "lohikäärme", which literally means "salmon snake".
To be honest, I have sometimes trouble seeing if I've been too aggressive in my opinions, so I actually worried a bit about this. I've got through a lot of my social problems in the past year, but opinion sharing still needs some work.You: Is this a fight?

If it's the speech I think you're talking about:When will people learn that cutting off the mic in the middle of a speech will give that speech even more attention?
International attention even, when news about these interrupted speeches get covered on internet news.
There are some speeches from overseas I would never have known about if some idiot didn't cut off the mic while the person is talking.
Thanks, stupid mic cutter person.
Now more people know.
It's that speech and another speech, where a student was speaking negatively about the school they were in and the mic got cut.
One after another.
It's also better to mark a liar not by removing his tongue, but splitting it to strip the snake of his camouflage.
“When you tear out a man's tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you're only telling the world that you fear what he might say.”― George R.R. Martin,
Honestly?I really really want to write the story I've been crafting for the last year and a half, but I'm worried my writing won't be sufficient enough to properly describe the themes and ideas I want to get across, I'm not convinced I'm competent enough which is frustrating.
