Someone is going to hate it or condemn it no matter what you do. Books have been hated for good reasons and they’ve been hated for bad reasons. It’s inevitable to get some hate, especially with controversial subjects, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do your best and succeed.
When writing about these topics, be accurate and be realistic. How much detail you go into depends on the story and your audience.
In which I might only get three hours of sleep tonight/this morning? I dunno, I’m in a liminal area right now….
Also, as of the fandom controversy of the new Korra episodes being ordered and Bryke’s statements on Bolin/the love triangle/shafting Bolin gleefully, please tell me I’m not the only person hoping that someone will go up to them at Comic-Con and ask them “Do you enjoy being controversial like this? What is your point of all this controversy?” Because if I was going I’d ask them that.
By the way, seeing Ice Age 4 at midnight really gave me that euphoria high after that depression downer I took for the rest of yesterday (so, yeah, no more writing depressing Korrlok fics for me! Only happy ficcies now!) and now I need to get to bed since it’s 3am and I need to get up in only three hours!!!! O.o
