    Legendary Grows

    I am taking a risk adding a story that isn't finished to my Legendary bookshelf but I never said Complete was a criteria, and I often believe the journey is more important than the destination, so here we go...

    Writing

    I am not a writer.

    I mean obviously I write some things. There is this blog post, other blog posts, being a human that lives in a society. Everyone has to write something sometimes. However I recognize that I could not, should not, ever write a story for this site. This is not a skill I have.

    Legendary

    For a while my favorites bookshelf had been bothering me. There were two stories that didn't really belong there. I felt compelled to favorite them because they were so well written, and I enjoyed them tremendously, but they didn't really fit the way I use that bookshelf. I add stories to favorites when there is something about them that makes me want to revisit them frequently. It isn't really a

    Self Insertion

    Up until recently I was ignoring anon and human stories. My reasoning was they were most likely lazy, or at least very awkward, self insertion stories. So I just filtered them out of my searches.

Self Insertion · 12:11am Apr 9th, 2019

Up until recently I was ignoring anon and human stories. My reasoning was they were most likely lazy, or at least very awkward, self insertion stories. So I just filtered them out of my searches.

Then my absolute favorite story on the site was Anthro. Then I found some people use the human tag when they mean anthro and so I stopped filtering it out. Then I saw the insanely high up votes human oc stories were getting.

I was forced to consider that either the majority of the site is people looking for something very different from me or that I had made a mistake in not giving these a fair chance.

Flash forward and I am very deep down the rabbit hole. However, I can't shake that these feel like self insertion stories. So now I need to consider, why does that bother me so much? When did I equate self insert with "the absolute worst possible thing?" :raritydespair: How do I deal with still feeling that way, still viewing these human in equestria stories as self insert, and then enjoying them anyway?

Unfortunately, I don't know. :applejackunsure: I lack that level of introspective ability. Maybe someone will stumble upon this and write something that could help me resolve this conflict. Until then, I will be finding out how someone wrote 400k words about a human named Lero.
