I mean, when I originally posted that parody a few months ago it only had around 23 notes! In my dizziest daydream, I would have never thought that it would resonate this much with so many people. The highest number of notes that I’ve ever had on an original content post has been about 120.
This is INSANE.
I feel ecstatic. I mean, I sometimes spend hours writing original material for this blog (parodies, reviews, essays, observations, etc) and I’m thrilled when JUST ONE person out there comments or feels affected by what I’ve written. The idea that 2,000+ people feel a connection to something I’ve written and think it’s entertaining? Well, that’s a little overwhelming…
But only in the best possible way :)
I mean, I know it’s just a Tumblr post, but someday, I hope to be a writer. A writer who composes material that means something to someone outside myself. I want to make people cry, and think, and, most importantly, LAUGH. Even though this post is just a little ol’ song parody, I still perceive the success of this endeavor to be another little push…
Another little nod of encouragement….
Another little sign that maybe, someday, I’ll reach my goal.
I’m working on a second verse. If anyone has any ships they would like to see included or if they have advice / suggestions, I’m all ears. I don’t speak much Dr. Who or Sherlock, but I know those are two large fanbases seeking representation.
Also, if anyone sings SLASH FRIDAY NIGHT and posts audio or video, could you please let me know? A couple people mentioned that they had a desire to do so and I would LOVE to see it performed :)
