Hi! I was wondering what program you used to format your book before printing in the fanfic-to-hardcover book. Thank you in advance :)

Hello! :D  I used Adobe InDesign!

You can go here to read an explanation as to how I formatted the pagination (:  I hope it’ll help! <3

(for anyone confused, this ask is about this project I did 2 years ago)

Okay, I’m going to be “that person” and add something to this post, even though it’s an old one. I just want to remind everyone/emphasize that this also applies to real people– perhaps especially real people– and not just fictional characters.

I’m adding this because the first thing I immediately thought of when I saw this post was the “apology” video Jason (YouTuber VeeOneEye) made in light of the rape accusation that came up about him recently. In his “apology” video (which was unlisted and he’s since deleted it, I think?), he blatantly confirmed the accusation was true and then made excuses about why he did it. In dramatic lighting. He claimed he didn’t know better (than to get someone drunk and commit statutory rape?!) because he was young, said he was experimenting with alcohol and sex and acting out a lot during that time, and blamed it partially on his upbringing (or lack thereof, perhaps?) as well as having Mormon parents. Seriously. I don’t even know.

Essentially, the video was 99% excuses, and 1% apology (more or less in the last 30 seconds). This prompted many fans to jump to his defense, and passionately proclaim “everybody makes mistakes!” and act as if everyone should immediately forgive and forget.

Jason turned his ~apology~ into a “yeah I did a bad thing but look people it was because of THESE REASONS okay,” rather than simply “I did something horrible, and I’m sorry.”

The explanations to attempt to save his career and audience became more important than the apology he was supposedly giving. He garnered sympathy, and people defended him.

Tragic backstories explain bad deeds but they do not excuse them.

Remember this. Remember the next time (because, sadly, there will probably be a next time) someone tries to explain away their horrific actions that it does not mean “everybody makes mistakes,” it does not mean you should automatically forgive and forget, and it does not mean there should be no consequences.

People make mistakes. Some of those mistakes are way bigger than others. But do not allow those people to garner your sympathy, and do not let their excuses or “explanations” lessen the severity of their actions.

Sympathize with the victims, not the perpetrators, no matter what stories the accused expertly weave to explain away their wrongs. 

Tragic backstories explain bad deeds but they do not excuse them.
