I’ve had a little extra time on my hands lately and I’m trying to get back into some creative writing. What do you think about this: a fan fiction series about a bunch of Tumblrs who spend their days sharing factoids and brain farts and writing other fan fiction. Has anyone gone meta fanfic before? Or meta-meta-fanfic? I feel like this would be a pretty big hit in most corners of the internet, but especially Tumblr, because, let’s face it, if there’s one thing Tumblr loves it’s weird, derivative writing and also everything else in the world.
I mean that in the best way possible, of course. Tumblr is a magical, egalitarian place where anyone can publish anything for the masses to enjoy and swim around in. The result is some absolute gems, like these random bits of goodness.
14. Witchy woman
The power of goth compels thee.
13. It follows
This reads an awful lot like a spooky clown killer trying to play off the time they got caught.
12. Definitive answers
We need to have some words about this.
11. Dunces and dragons
If only table top gaming was really as badass as my fundamentalist upbringing led me to believe.
10. Drugs are a hell of a drug
And with that, I’ve entered “mansquito,” “really frog,” and “murdersaurus” into my lexicon.
9. Jokes of the undad
You get mad, but you will 100% say this to someone else some day.
8. The second coming
I need to be in the room where this was thought up.
This whole website may as well be speaking in tongues sometimes.
6. Greek life
This story didn’t get passed down for 2,400 years just to get lost with Millennials, calm down.
Sounds cool as heck to me, tbh.
4. Big and round
Throw that ass in a circle.
3. Me want food
This one comes with a lovely audio presentation.
2. Spicy comments
Ok but how do you really feel? Be honest.
1. Gotta kill ’em all
He’d never say a word about it…
Quality stuff from the weirdos of Tumblr. Honestly, where would we be without them? Doing work? Going outside? No thanks. More weird, please!
