You know that moment when you get a comment on an old fic? So you go to thank them and end up accidentally reading a line or two of said fic because, well, it's old, and maybe you have fond memories of writing it? And then the line or two turns into reading all of said fic, and then you go to hit the kudos button because omg, who wrote this? The prose! I wish I could write prose like this...wait a minute... *facepalm*

And then you spend the rest of the day wondering when you stopped writing like that.

Other signs you might be a grouchy old lady of fandom: getting more than one kudo or comment at once on old fic and not being able to find out how they got directed there in the first place. Searching for recs used to be easy before twitter and tumblr and all the rest.

LOL.

Yeah.


I love finding out how people find my fic. I got a burst of new comments on my old Sentinel fic when 852 Prospect archive was folded into the Archive of Our Own, so that made sense, but occasionally I too will get random new kudos on something and wonder where they found me.

Yeah, yeah, absolutely.

I know it's bollocks, that connection between depression and writing, and I like my recent Natasha/Steve fic enough to know it's not true. But when I was sad and less busy, I did put out some amazing prose...
