So, something happened the other day that made me smile a lot at the time but now gives me mixed feelings.

I found a really cute fanart that was based on a fic of mine. Someone being inspired to draw based on something I'd written naturally took me to the moon and back and I'm honestly smiling a little as I think of it. The thing is that when I say I found it, I mean that I found it. I was scrolling through the fandom tag on Tumblr, thought at first that someone had just had a similar idea (since part of the scene they were inspired by was in turn based on a gag from another show) and only then noticed the link back to my fic. The artist didn't say anything to me about it until after I reblogged to gush, even though I'm preeetty sure the comment I got on that fic recently was from them. And then also when I looked at the notes, I noticed it got likes and reblogs from people who I know follow my fandom blog, where I've also posted that fic, and none of them said anything to me either...

And, I mean. I'm still stoked, like I said, but a link to the art would've been cool, y'know? It was already a few pages back and I was in the tags on a whim anyway. I could easily have never found it.

Related to my last post, I just want to take a moment to state for the record that my favorite pieces of positive feedback to receive on fanfics are:

"I don't ship this/like this character but I enjoyed this fic."

and

"I didn't ship this/like this character but I do now thanks to this fic."
