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.

That is pretty weird, but since they linked to your fic, maybe your followers thought you already knew. Whatever the case, I've found that tumblr is not always the best platform for communication. That's not always the case, but more often than not, people just post, reblog, and then move on.

Oh, I completely agree.
