|Reviews for How to Write a Merlin Fanfiction|
| Guest chapter 11 . 1/18
Just finished it now and holy shit. I'm meant to be asleep right now, it's 1:18am are this very moment, and I kept having to stop laughing. Surprisingly there were words of wisdom in there somewhere and I also now have a few crack fic ideas and the actual meaning of bamf which has been bugging me for a while. Thank you for this, it was amazing. Except the grammar sections *shudders* that may give me nightmares yet.

I'm probably going to write another review when I finish this but HOLY SHIT BALLET DANCING UTHER. If I ever make a crack fic I'm using that so much and if you like I will credit you in the A/N because I just had to stifle giggles at the mention of it

I must say that this was one of the most amusing things I've read for a while (perhaps due to a lack of sleep and night humor at 4 am but who knows) great guide anyway.

You are awesome! This guide is absolutely thorough and hilarious!

Genital herpes. Do you watch Supernatural?
Also, it's 3 AM and I'm snorting like an idiot

Wow, I actually found this quite entertaining. Also, I found myself agreeing with quite a few things, and have found examples of literally everything mentioned in this in a Merlin fanfiction. I've only ever written one Merlin fanfiction, and it was a crossover, so I didn't take any personal offense from this. In fact, I found it funny. But I was silently cursing you for most of Chapter 8, and it screwed with my double-vision, giving me a headache.
But overall, this was very enjoyable to read (surprisingly)!

One of the most unpleasant chapters I have ever read. I mean... Once I hit the sub-heading 'The Trouble with Capital' (Not re-writing it the way you had it. I'm both lazy and can't bring myself to do that.) It become kind of hard to read through. I think I have a headache. Yup. I have a headache now. Thanks a lot for that.

I'm dying. Just dying from laughter. Everything is either really funny or true. I had to spot reading for a moment to control my laughter. You earned a favorite and I don't even like humorous works often (and never one that isn't even fiction.) I love it.

Favoriting this the moment I touch home-ground.
Let's say I appreciate sarcasm and satire, and actually learned things (and laughed. Mostly laughed. And muttered about 'eyes bleeding' and 'puke worthy' and 'teeth rotting damnation' at points. The genre and grammar ones, to be precise). And use them mercilessly. Even my class notes are full of it. No one is safe. (Also, it's contagious. Thank you, my assistance-obsessed granny. My notes have spread, and my class has the professors baffled. Soon, the whole grade will have turned. It's awesome).

...so I'm not the only one who does that? *ponders* Their answers are truly entertaining, aren't they?
One author even told me off when I commented that someone that went through systematical psychological torture and physical abuse couldn't be 'that' well adjusted in such a short time span, specially if they're from modern society (the worse off the bottom-barrel of your community has it, the better the middle ground will deal with pain) and were suddenly wrenched from their time. It's like taking the security blanket away from a toddler. All their little comforts, taken away, and they find themselves in an unknown place with unknown dangers and a propensity for panic attacks (there's a reason for the phrase 'Better the devil you know than the devil you don't', after all).
Everyone also seems to forget the language barriers. Quite often. It's irritating (I'm Major-ing in Foreign Languages. I take offense to this. Strongly, and with much passion. In a Morgana sort-of-way).
Instead, the Mary Sue or Gary Stu or whatever the pompous bootlicker of a character is called, not only lacks in human flaws -which are what makes character-building so much fun- it defies logic and common sense. They'd be basically self-deluded but functional psychopaths, if they were ever diagnosed *raises eyebrow* Or, well, sociopaths, I guess, but the term is obsolete now, so psychopaths they are!
Gods, I needed that rant. You're a life-saver. Venting is awesome!
(No, there's no difference between Psychopaths and Sociopaths. I've researched about it. Intensively. My friend -Uri- is a sucker for BBC's Sherlock. Len and I are both of the opinion that she has a thing about cheekbones...)
(My real Pen-Name is HikaruWinter, but I'm not on my computer, so I'm not logging in. I take paranoid to new levels. Like the dude from the movie 'RED' that lived in an underground base under a car's sad and rusty remains with a no-tech-allowed policy. I also have a fondness for plushies. We share things, that dude and I. The crazy is only one of many. Also, I babble, as can be noted)

I love this fic SO MUCH.

I can't believe I read all of this.

The references to 1337 forced me to embark on an adventure in learning. It was actually interesting. Thank you.
(also my eyes burn from viewing those- things. The horror! The pain! The numbers...)
