Fandom has its hierarchies just like any other social group—there are the big fandoms, like Sherlock and Supernatural and Teen Wolf, and sometimes it’s hard to get beyond those and find fic for other, smaller fandoms. For example, though the Disney/Pixar movies are as ripe for ficcing as any other movies are, there is very little fic out there for them. So I stumbled upon today’s fanfic rec completely by accident—but I’m very glad I did.
For quite a while, I had been hearing nothing but good things about Inside Out, and while the movie is by no means perfect, it was pretty damn good. One of the reasons I like this movie so much is because it has one of the most accurate portrayals of depression that I have ever seen. And not only does Inside Out portray depression realistically, it also presents it in a way that’s easy to understand.
