Funny but your spelling typo for Mortal/Motel Instruments is hilarious to me for some reason.

BEST FANFICTION I HAVE READ IN A LOOOONNNNNGGGGG TIME! I effing loved this. You used GOOD humor to point out how seriously awful Twilight is while truthfully showing how ficfiction opperates and how many are blinded by what THEY think is good. Perfection. You are my hero :)

This makes soooo much sense!

This is why the Twilight series sucked (ok, not terribly...) and the Host and even the little novella thingy were sooo good!

Though I really like the whole Riordan vs. Rowling thing. And how Suzanne stormed out. It just...fits. I love it.

Much love

First of all, you should do your research when it comes to including random authors. Suzanne Collins has received acclaim recently from the Hunger Games trilogy, but before that she wrote the Underland Chronicles, which are no less than five books and, in my opinion, much better than her later works. Also, as a previous reviewer commented (in egregious leetspeak), timelines deserve some respect or at least a logical, consistent way of being changed.

You make references to "the literary world," but what you're really looking at is the provincial world of "children's" literature. James Patterson is much more well-known for his adult mysteries than Maximum Ride, and calling Christopher Paolini "celebrated" is stretching it, because anyone worth their salt with an ounce of literary criticism knowledge can tell that the Eragon series is trite, bloated, and a blatant rip-off of Star Wars and Lord of the Rings.

I understand that this little fic is just for fun and the silliness is intentional, but there comes a point where "silly and fun" is outweighed by "random annoying bits." Please understand I do not intend to offend you by this critique. You have a fun concept; the execution needs a little work. Also, a proof-read.

Perhaps consider getting a beta?

I respect you and your potential as an authour greatly.

This. Is. The. Most. Amazing. Thing. I. Have. Ever. Read.

...I seriously don't even know what to say right now. I kind of feel like I'm speaking to God. You know, like that feeling you would get of absolute awe if you met someone so...completely unrealistically brilliant?

Right off the bat, I'm going to admit that I am one of the Twilight-haters. I am, as you so lovingly put it, one of "those that hate it with every fiber of their being." Seriously. Like every single last fiber, down to microscopic size. Maybe now you can comprehend my delight as I so fatefully stumbled upon this beautiful piece of writing.

Never, and I mean NEVER have I come across such a brilliant fic before. I honestly am speechless. If I were to write down all of the things I liked about this piece, I would end up just copying and pasting the whole story onto this extremely long review.

This Fic is amazing. You are amazing. And I think you may have gotten my point by now. :]

Loved it. I can now see where the series came from! I mean, I guess you could say I'm a Neutral when it comes to books and such. Keep making stories like this, they're awesome!

Um. I think Twilight has a great plot. And I am the Fangirl, but I read ships I disagree with and pour myself into making sure my OC's are as person-like as I can get them, my charachters are not OOC, and my stories make sense.

Please don't take this the wrong way, but if you do not like Twilight/the Twilight fandom, then you don't write fanfiction for it. If you do like it, then I'm sorry, never mind.

However, the writing in this fanfic was intriguing and hilarious, and I was hooked no matter how offended I was (I have Asperger's, so to me, a tiny insult to Twilight is a large insult to me. There was nothing wrong with what YOU did.) because you made it sound incredibly serious... While authors were discussing fanfics with a panda.

Nicely done.

P. S. I'm with Joanne on this one, simply cuz I like Harry Potter better than Percy Jackson and the Olympians.

Woah. I really liked this! This was AWESOME!
CharmedMilliE chapter 1 . 11/26/2010
okay, i have some problem with this and it's not just that i'm a huge twilight fan. it's the authors u put in it. it doesn't make sense if u look at time lines. twilight came out before the hunger games and at the same time as the first percy jackson book. i no u were just trying to make fun of twilight, which i think is wrong b/c if u don't like a series i feel u should just leave it alone instead of going 2 make fun of it, but get the facts straight if ur going to do something like this.

Loved it. So cracky, yet made so much sense.
