Real people fic are against site rules.
Either fix your story by replacing yourself with an OC or other character.
Failure to do so will get you reported!

This was a cute and silly little story. My first LOTR! LOL
BTW, the next time you get a flame like the one from that arkham knob, respond by correcting his grammar, 'cause his was atrocious. ;)

Wow. That was weird. I kind of laughed though.

Self-insert? Shame on ou. As everyone knows, self-inserts are always unrealistic and illogical!
Nah, I'm kidding. This is brilliant. (Then again, I wrote a fully proclaimed self-insert, so what do I know.) Anyway, hilarious.

LOL This was HILARIOUS, really!
Very short, but probably ten times better than all the other absolutely unrealistic and Marry-Sueish novel length stories I've read.

Ok, I first saw your forum post with this and I laughed so hard! This is absolutly the best and most realistic self-insert fanfiction I have ever read! Kudos to you! I wish there was some award for this I could nominate/vote for this story! How completly awesome! Great job!

Rowena, your are a gem. Really. Short, sweet, and erm. It tickled my funny bone. My humerus is still twitching. What's the SCA by the way?

This new review button is confusing...I went and clicked the 'Add Story to Favourites' button by mistake instead!
Anyway, your post on WA got me interested to read it.
"I started getting , 'cause it's rude to talk about someone in a language they don't understand."
For some reason, a word's been missed out before the comma?
"I figure I'll just hover around the twisty slide, 'cause being dead means I can see that stupid portal now. I'll just scare people away when it decides to get big enough to suck someone else in. No one needs to die like that."
Aww. I really liked that ending.
Overall, this was an enjoyable short little read, so thank you! I've now wasted time that I should be spending studying, but whatever. I would say that elaboration and a longer story would be nice, but I think it probably is best as it is now.

Brillant Ro. _ I have to say this is one of the best satriaclish of the fandom stories I have read.
| Double TNT 10/31/08 . chapter 1
I read your explanation of the plot:” This is what we call "tongue in cheek" humor. It was born out of a discussion about self-inserts and how unrealistic they really are."
Not many people would find much humor in it, except those who were involved in your discussion or knew you (even if only on ) to understand what was this about.
If you were just making a point, you might as well post it on the forum where you discussed it.
In this context, it is of little importance that your self insert was realistic or not. Your self insert is a flat character who enters a scene and dies. No actual plot, no personality. Not much fun, really.
Your subtle humour is lost, if people do not understand who is the target of it. Or if they, as in my case, still find it petty and unneccessary.
For the record: it's not a flame. It's my take on this fiction. My two cents.

Awe, why'd you have to die? That could have been really funny...Of course I guess you would've had to learn the language at some point...:)

This is probably the most logical and realistic self-insert.
Which is awesome. 8D
