Q. Hi, I saw your donation drive on AO3, and I'm wondering what the money is for, exactly? $70,000 seems like a /lot/ of money. Is there somewhere I can see a list of intended purposes? Thank you!

70,000 USD does seem like a lot, which is why many of our users may be surprised to find out that in 2015, the OTW will need 75,000 USD just to replace old servers and expand capacity! The OTW’s annual budget for 2014 is 221,863.44 USD, and 70% of that goes directly to servers, collation, and staff development for AO3. The remaining 30% of our 2014 budget funds Fanlore, Legal Advocacy, Open Doors, and Transformative Works and Cultures; covers administrative costs; allows for outreach and membership development (such as our thank you gifts and shipping); and provides opportunities for professional development and training for personnel. All of these things help the OTW protect and celebrate fans and fan culture.

I find it amazing that people think that’s a lot of money to ask. It’s incredibly expensive to fund such heavily used and non ad supported websites, and that before anyone even gets paid for their work. I am definitely donating what I can to this drive, and I hope if you have a few dollars spare and benefit from Archive of Our Own, or any of their projects you will consider dona ting as well.

We currently have 16365 fandoms, 418361 registered users, and 1330541 works. (x)

And it’s free of advertising, it’s non-commercial, it’s our haven and we can be certain that our fanworks don’t get banned or deleted or censored. AO3 has given a multinational fandom a platform, and, with the OfTW, a voice. So if you can spare a few dollars, do it!

"Allowing for abortions in the case of incest and rape isn’t an uncommon stance for people who are “pro-life,” either, which does a wonderful job of showing just how full of shit they are when they claim that they’re against abortion because they think the fetus is human. If they truly thought the fetus was human, they wouldn’t think abortion magically becomes non-murder as long as the woman in question didn’t have sex they disapprove of."

A+ comment on Jezebel.

I can respect people who think abortion is wrong under all circumstances. I don’t agree, but I respect that they at least have the courage of their convictions.

The rape or incest exception, however, is moral cowardice and misogyny dressed up as concern, and it’s bullshit

Q. Hey, so what are your opinions on the StilesDerek age difference? I know you support them, but does the gap bother you at all?

why should it

it’s only six years

perhaps I’m old and jaded but six years is nothing in the scheme of things, and Stiles is very mature for his age, because of what he has been through, as is Derek, in season one Derek was still a frightened child lashing out, for all of his age (22) 

in some cases I do agree the age difference is important, Kate was six years older than Derek, but at the same time don’t you think intent means more. Derek wouldn’t hurt stiles, he has grown to trust him and like him, they have grown up together, but Kate at 22 was already a psycho who wanted ot hurt him and burn his house down

so I don’t think the age differnece matters, what matters is the person and that they are honest about who they are and what they want

Gotta say, the age gap thing on a personal level totally and completely baffles me. I really feel like these people are missing the entire point of the text? People have become really obsessed with this whole age gap argument and I’m almost fascinated as to why, particularly as it’s so far out of my personal experience. Stiles is canonically a few months away from 18 months. At 18, I was dating guys in their 20s, most of my friends were, so I sort of bristle when people imply there’s something sick and wrong about it. And the older you get, the less this age gap matters. When the series started and Stiles was only 16, sure, that was too young. Hell, if you go back to s1, Derek was too young and extremely vulnerable, too. S1!Derek, for all his posturing, looks like a scared little boy who was robbed of his childhood and is stuck in limbo. S4, he’s achieved adulthood, and I’d argue the same goes for the others - or at least, they’re well on their way (that’s what the hero’s journey is all about really, it’s a rite of passage). One of the things I love about Teen Wolf is the steady growth of emotional development evident in every character. I’m watching s4 with one friend right now, and introducing the show to another friend (currently just finished s1) - the difference between the characters is really striking. At the heart of it, that’s what this show is all about- the transition to adulthood. Look at the dialogue with the parental figures, Melissa asking Noshiko why they’re asking their kids to fight such battles: because they have to, they have to allow their kids to take responsibility for their lives, to fight for them, to let them grow up - otherwise they’re dead. There’s a huge difference in the way Melissa treats Scott (trust, respect, while still being a kickass mother and support) with the way the Sheriff treats Stiles (lack of trust). So I think this age gap argument flies in the face of what the storyline between the Sheriff and Stiles is arguing - that at some point you have to recognise and trust your kids to make their own educated decisions, to view them as adults capable of making their own choices. The sad thing with Stiles’ storyline right now is that his dad clearly doesn’t view him as an adult, doesn’t trust him to make his own decisions, and it only results in more lies between them.

Another thing that really confuses me in this argument is that people seem to be under the impression that the moment the clock strickes 12 on Stiles’ 18th birthday, he’s going to be magically infused with wisdom and knowledge and no one will be able to manipulate and take advantage of him from that moment on. Which no. He’s going to be the exact same kid he was a few hours ago at 17. And if someone really wants to play with his head, whether he’s underage or not won’t matter. Sure in another case the victim being young and unexpirienced will probably be an advantage for the abuser but by now Stiles is anything but unexpirienced in being manipulated and used. And he might be physically young but he’s been through more in the past year than most adults go through in their entire lifetimes.

And that’s not even taking into account the fact that Derek would probably rather lock himself in a burning house than do anything his partner does not want or is uncomfortable with.

What frustrates me is that the people I see complaining about the age gap between Stiles and Derek the most have no issue whatsoever with Lydia and Parrish
