This is fuzzytomato of the Merlin fandom. Most of you know about my struggle with GoodReads and the fact that my fanfic KEEPS BEING LINKED ON THERE. I don’t want it there. I don’t want my fic linked outside of fandom at all. Not on Goodreads. Not on Hypable. No where that is not a fandom specific platform. It took me two weeks and over four emails last time to get Post-It Note Romance removed from Goodreads. Now, it’s there again.To the people who keep doing it - STOP! STOP STOP STOP. I put a disclaimer on my AO3 profile that says - PLEASE, DO NOT LINK MY PSEUDS OR ANY OF MY WORKS ON GOODREADS OR OTHER SUCH REVIEW SITES. If this continues, I will be forced to remove my fics from AO3.
There are many authors who feel the same way as I do. If you want to keep fics in fandom, then STOP and ASK, or READ, before you link on sites outside the normal fandom platforms.

For years Arthur searched for his muse. The one person who was worth the paint, worth the hundreds of etches and fine brushes. For years people visited his chambers. Noblemen would bring their daughters, begging Arthur to paint their soft features and round faces. The maids would bustle through his chamber, lingering near the windows, letting light caress their smiles. But the painter turned his visitors all down, all but one. The one who stumbled in his chambers one day by pure accident and kept coming back ever since;
“Your cheekbones are- they are- they catch the light very well. They are quite captivating.”
