    For Moonlight Sonata:

    Moonlight Sonata- by the lovely SoushiKaito:

    (It's really quite a beautiful take of Light playing the violin, and I'm honored that she was inspired by an oneshot from my earlier writings. The linework is crisp, and I like the blending of colors and the contrasting BG!)

    For Green and Gold:

    Sesshomaru & Harry- by the exquisite Naoru (Suisou):

    (The little story behind this illustration and the amount of effort she put into it left me marveling throughout her entire progress as it blossomed from a WIP pencil sketch to final digital illustration. It's very much indicative of her style she's been developing over the years. Also, a hint for ch14.)

    For Finders Keepers:

    Handsome Jack & Rhys- by the exquisite Naoru (Suisou):

    (Again, it was a series of WIPs I was privy to. It was interesting how she experimented with colors and how she was trying to tell a story with the use of knickknacks and composition. It's quite haunting!)

    Prologue- by the exquisite Naoru (Suisou):

    (She'd illustrated the scene where Handsome Jack is examining android!Rhys in the office! It was a great experiment of what could be done with a different color palette. It's hauntingly lovely.)

    Note to people: Welcome to my profile! Look around, look around! You're certainly welcome to browse through my ramblings. If you wish to PM me about anything other than questions for any of my stories, I'd appreciate if you'd please scroll through my PERSONAL OPINION CORNER section first below before contacting me. Thank you!

    Now then, to those that believe strongly against same sex relationships, I would like to warn you most of my story content has relation to such. I like taking up the pairing challenge. If it goes against your beliefs...I respect you and let's please be rational, sensible human beings who part peacefully. If homosexual romances are not your cup of tea and you don't want to give my stories a cursory look, you could simply click the back button and read other marvelous fiction!


    Age: 20's

    Occupation: Full-time student

    Major: Environmental Design (creating spatial experiences based on the psychology of user interaction and short, everything from architecture to interior design, from residential to commercial to exhibition. Instead of hospitality or commercial projects, I'm more invested in the residential and exhibition industries.)

    Writing Style: Overwhelmingly detailed and hopefully a lot of thought put into a project! When I'm passionate about something, my enthusiasm cannot be contained! I'm more of a traditionalist when it comes to writing, but I will bend the rules from time to time if I feel the need to do so. Suggestions are generally welcomed so long as they're reasonable. I'd like to try anything at least once so long as it fits the context. Mm, I update slowly, because if I haven't run out of inspiration or time, I usually let an idea hibernate in my head for a while until there's been a sufficient sample size of reviews (the quantity differs with the popularity of each story) to understand what has been well-received/understood, what has flown over people's heads, or where people think I'm taking the plot. I'm fond of taking branching scenarios and, based on reader feedback, then deciding where to go with them. I also like to touch on cultural aspects in my stories and having characters interpret a scenario/dialogue from various perspectives. So, multiple POV shifts are to be expected. I basically like writing content that gets readers speculating on what's going to happen next. I take particular pleasure in one's growth and life's lessons. I also like challenging preconceived notions every now and then. I guess, creatively, I naturally rebel against that which is established. My education has been to challenge myself and strive for innovation. It doesn't mean I consistently break all the rules, but I definitely do question some of them, especially those that don't make much sense or have become so mundane it's become trite.

    Update Schedule: Usually 2-4 months, to max years. Depends on the priority, and if I've got the inspiration.

    Preferred Reading Content: Long, well-thought out plots and character development, with a bit of originality. I adore detective fiction and crime novellas. Literature with historical content, action, suspense, believable romances, relateable characters and/or extraordinary villains are also great pluses for me. Sci-fi on the other hand...well, Star Trek fanfiction has grown on me. For more professional publications, there's only been one or two that I'd been intrigued enough to purchase for my private library. Futuristic, technological terminology can overwhelm me. The same applies for the fantasy genre. Guilty pleasures include silliness such as PWP, nonfiction classics, humor, purple prose, satirical pieces, supernatural and/or trashy romances.

    Personality: I'm a confusing mix between lighthearted and serious. I'm generally a mild-mannered, open-minded designer who likes listening to feedback and other people's thoughts, and trying to understand where they're coming from before voicing my penultimate reply. At the same time, I can be intense and ambitious and eccentric, so I try to balance between being both reserved and friendly in order to maintain tactfulness and respect. However, I don't tolerate nonsense. Personally I consider myself an introvert, but with my career choice I've managed to become an overly friendly social butterfly whose mind crashes in privacy after a long day of interaction. Caffeine and sleep are the nectars of life. I believe in the equality of people, so I try to relate to individuals from all walks of life. I like surrounding myself with people of great attitudes and great drives; people who are focused but can crack a joke. Solemn or critical personalities are a-ok with me, but when they start chewing out the colleagues and decisions I care for deeply, I have to take a step back and breathe. There are admittedly moments where I can't hold in the judgmental side of my personality. Courtesy and education are exceptionally significant to me, so my patience can be tested when those lines are crossed. I've been so fixated on pursuing my ambitions I hardly have the time to lose focus or let anyone stop me from fulfilling them. I can be finicky and a bit of a perfectionist, demanding much from myself and reasonable amounts of effort, maturity, flexibility, and honesty from others. I work odd hours just to complete a deadline, knowing I've got people invested or counting on me, so it baffles me when I see some people wasting our precious time or money. See, serious and judgmental. (Nah, I'm only an introspective snob. Most of the time I'm like that annoying woman who smiles a lot or laughs in awkward and/or stressful situations and blathers on a lot. Yep.)

    Communication: I offer insight from what I've personally found as "tried-and-true," and I love hearing experiences and interacting with people. I can be a little stiff when it comes to open, gushy displays of affection so I can seem a little standoffish. But to my friends or to the lovely people I've met, I try to be enthusiastically warm and welcoming in our interactions. Thus I express my affection for the people I care about in little, but practical, ways. Also, very few things faze me. I take things in stride, and am rarely shocked or taken aback by human behavior. Thus, it's difficult for me to be provoked unless by a few personal triggers, and even then the anger seldom comes up. It's more of a disapproval and disappointment in the person, than anything. I typically don't like putting on airs―especially for a stranger. So when I have nothing nice to say, I won't say anything. Most of the time I'll just walk away or let things naturally end. I'm quite rigid in my opinions, but I can be swayed if it's explained to me in a logical manner that makes sense, is not a determent to my plans, and does not impact many people negatively. Due to my eccentricities, I find that what I say or do doesn't always relate to some people. So, there will be a few disconnects here and there. Otherwise I can be quite passionate and intense when I've got the drive. While I can be brutally honest, I also try to temper that with pleasantry and fairness as much as possible. I try to think from a different perspective, since I apparently have a quirky way of viewing the world.

    Advice: Oh! For anyone about to fill out applications, you need to be certain that college or work environment is the right fit for you. Then it should be a brilliant, rewarding experience where you'll learn a lot and interact with many different people across vast professions. After my initial anxiety and fears, now I don't regret it one bit. Even with the stress. It toughens you! :)


    This is the most I'll say: regardless of whether you log in or post anonymously, you're still racketing up the number of reviews I have, thereby making the story you're flaming even more popular. You're certainly entitled to the right of your freedom of speech and/or the right to be a git. I understand that you are being true to yourself and not following the crowd. It's admirable that you're willfully expressing your singularity. But while I feel flattered that my story elicited a passionate response in you, instead of feeling hurt, chances are I am more embarrassed that you've wasted your efforts on me. Don't be juvenile. Ask yourself what your goal is. If you want a story to fail, you have better luck pretending it doesn't exist and that reading it is beneath you. Think of your blood pressure. Don't contribute to the hype if your goal isn't to give it more free publicity. A "bad" review is not going to deter people from reading the story or the author from continuing it. Very little reviews will. If you're roasting the person solely to be an outlier to a popular story, I hope you have written it convincingly. It may be seen as a joke if the tone of your vernacular is ludicrous or dramatically different from everyone else's opinions. The key to constructing a credible insult is to pick on what a lot of people are bothered by, and not just you. If you're flaming because of your beliefs, you have very little effect trying to force it on others. Consider writing a story yourself, so that more people start gaining awareness. If you want me to change something, consider writing a constructive crit and we'll see if I agree or not.

    Flames won't make me change or delete my stories or my account or the scene or any character decisions that bothered you. Nor will I give you attention in my stories or Author Notes. I will not address your existence in any of my chapters. I see no purpose in alienating you and giving you more attention over everyone else. If there isn't credibility, you'll probably just inspire a moment of brief entertainment before I put it out of my mind. We're above pettiness or schoolyard bullying. There is no point trying to upset me. There is no point of me upsetting you. And there is no need of us interacting if we cannot extend each other the same courtesy and civility. I'm certain you're a smart individual with better things to do than trying to get my attention. Any interaction you'll get from me is very rare, dear. I know when to pick my battles. If you genuinely want me to notice you, for whatever reason–however short my reply may be–at least use that courage of yours to chance it and log in.


    However, if you intend to target other writers, in the words of the late kydasam, "it takes courage and character to place something so intensely personal as the stories I've read out on public display." Please try to exercise restraint and common decency, lest you contribute to their lack of self-confidence. I'm asking you to think about the person behind the screen that you're trying to belittle or demotivate. Not everyone has a thick skin or a hardy sense of humor. Or even the ability to accept criticisms without taking it as some form of a personal attack. It's one thing to be cynical or wanting to give someone a reality check. It's another to be needlessly cruel. If you are feeling frustrated or jaded by a trend you keep seeing, don't take it out on others. Words have consequences. You are not giving them humility by trying to shred their egos. You are not converting them or having a trolling fun time, than you are cyberbullying them. It's easy to hurt people. There are some people of more extreme and/or sensitive souls that I'm frightened to see their self-esteems be torn into pieces. It's not a joke to them. Many writers I see on this site are of a young demographic whose writing skills, psyche and self-confidence are still developing. And whether it's an exaggeration or not, there is an alarming amount claiming depression and online victimization. If you're trying to get people to notice you, there are healthier alternatives, advantageous and beneficial to you and everyone else. In all honesty, life's too short to waste it by dwelling on provocation and negativity. Both of you have a life to live and things to do than to be stuck in this cycle.

    At least consider their motivations for writing. You and the author are strangers. Neither of you know each other's personalities or triggers or personal histories. You don't even know each other's age and living environment, their culture and upbringing. You may be doing it for fun. Or it's a genuine expression of outrage on your part. But keep in mind, the person you're attacking may not always share the same mental fortitude. They didn't go through your life experiences. They don't know what you don't like. They may not have the same education you did. They may have dyslexia or some condition that's affecting how they write, but they try their best anyway.

    They may not be doing it as a way of clearing their mind of distractions. They may not be trying to experiment or trying to start making a name for themselves. They may write simply for the reason that it makes them feel alive and for once feel confident and help them destress from their hectic lives. They may be writing to minimize their anxiety in social conventions. They may look to positive reviews as a way of bolstering their mood. They might be trying to attract like-minded, friendly reception. They might already be aware of where they stand on the writing-skills spectrum, yet they are slowly struggling to improve. They might already be overly judgmental of their creations but are challenging themselves to try things outside their comfort zone. They may be writing personalities they wish they were instead in real life, or incidents they wished happened or have happened. They may be writing about their idols. When it is their own personal fantasies they're writing about, there is little point of censoring them when it does not affect you or the world as a whole. Yes, your eyes may burn and you wish to wreak vengeance for the amount of time you'd wasted on them, but taking someone down a peg is only a momentary thrill. I understand you might be feeling bored or loyal to another author or you're feeling just as terrible, but don't bring vulnerable people down. Your words have an impact.

    Even "shitty authors" with "shitty stories" can mature as a writer with the proper encouragements and constructive criticisms. It takes time for skills to mature and be polished. It's our responsibility to nurture their talent, not to stop them from writing completely or to make them feel like worthless human beings. We should support young or amateur writers whose level of writing aren't as good as those you're expected to, but are still brave enough to post what they made for public eye. Instead of wasting your valuable time, you could perhaps close your browser and spend it on something more worthwhile? Or if you want to try constructive critiques, go ahead.


    First of all, what is constructive criticism? "It is the process of offering valid and well-reasoned opinions about the work of others, usually involving both positive and negative comments, in a friendly manner rather than an oppositional one. The purpose of constructive criticism is to improve the outcome." Then it is up to the recipient to agree or to disagree, and to ultimately decide what to do with it.

    Have you ever written a critical review which was ignored or met with a prickly lip or met with the ever-so-common "don't read it if you don't like it"? It mostly has to do with the way you'd constructed your crit, and how it came across to the stranger you're posting your opinion to. Ideally the authors you'd want to nitpick are the ones that can take it, or are mature enough to detect the difference between a crit and an actual "flame." Unfortunately though, not everyone has a thick-skin or have come to understand that crits are not a personal attack, however constructively or frivolously written it was by you. Which brings me to my next point: I've been noticing a trend here specific to this site that baffles me. So, in my profile this will be my one and only time I'll be giving my attention to this matter. It's albeit harsh. Here are some advices on writing constructive criticism that should get an author to reply favorably or to get them to take you seriously:

    1. Read the whole story first. Then read the Author Notes. Comb through them. Skim if you must, until you are sure you are able to back up your statements. Whatever problem you may be having in their initial few chapters may have been already resolved at a later point in the story. If you're critiquing their plot and characterizations, be careful. There is a fine line between analyzing written pieces and jumping to hasty conclusions. Make sure you did not misunderstand their content. There's nothing more embarrassing than submitting a crit and getting a reply back from the author asking if you'd even read the story. If they can disprove your statements, any further advice from you is going to be looked at with a pinch of salt. You're the one spending your valuable time writing a review. You don't want it to be wasted by having it be ignored or doubted simply for the fact they think that you didn't attempt to give their story a chance and instead rushed to judgement. Unfounded claims and crits that go against their plot/ headcanon are the biggest reasons why they won't listen to your advice. And if, for some reason, you and the author get into a lengthy debate about the fanfiction and it turns out to have been a misunderstanding...well, besides being a gigantic waste of both of your times, both parties are left with a lasting impression of each other that could have been easily avoided.
    2. Fact-check the lore. Review canonical facts, especially if you're trying to use the original source material to back up your claims. Make sure the evidence you're presenting the author is valid and doesn't in any way contradict your claims. It's kind of...embarrassing if you inform the author with something that isn't true. The nicer writers will tell you that you've gotten it wrong. The meaner ones will laugh at you. You want them to think you are an expert, so they have more trust in your advice. But don't shove your knowledge in their faces. Don't be that insufferable know-it-all. Chances are they'd get confrontational and defensive if you show off your superiority by pointing fingers with a holier-than-thou attitude. We get it. You're a die-hard fan. Relax. The author is also a fan of the franchise. Be a teacher that you've always liked. Be a good senpai/upperclassman, imparting your wisdom and sharing observations to the class. Your objective is to back up your claims eloquently and not to give the author any ammo or wiggle-room to say otherwise. But make sure the author hasn't stated that they are making it AU (reinterpreting the fandom as an "alternate universe") or OOC ("out of character"). This includes warnings such as "not strictly canon" and "canon divergence." They're already warning you not to expect things kept to the nose, because of their creative liberties.
    3. Avoid belittling or critiquing an author's writing style as much as you conceivably can. This is a battle you do not want to get into. I do not mean grammar, spelling, punctuation, pronunciation, and keeping characters seemingly canon. No, I do not mean their technical technique. I mean an author's voice, their soul, the distinct way they write that separates them from the rest. It is unfair to hold the author's writing style to the standards of the original franchise. Their story is not an official extension of the original author's craft. No matter how much one tries to emulate or reference the original source material, they. Are. Not. The. Original. Creator. They are not them. You are not them. Fanfiction, by definition, is a fan's interpretation of a source material in written form. Taste is subjective. Their style of writing may appeal to another niche market. There is a reason why your crit might be met with instant dismissal or even scorn if you point out their style of writing is not the same as the original creator's or even someone else's. Respect their individuality. On their side, authors instinctively think, "Goodness, if you disprove of my writing style so much, why don't you simply read someone else's or write your own fanfic instead? Sounds a lot simpler than wasting your time yelling at me." There is a difference between writing a constructive crit, and writing an unnecessarily harsh review solely for the purpose of getting the author to write in the style you wish to read all of your stories in. You have to learn how to balance the tone of your words, and not accidentally come off as entitled or worse: coming off as delusional. Be mature about it. Don't box them and have them conform to your own personal wishes that go against the point of writing their own fanfiction.
    4. Think about whether it's worth the time to write and post it. Your time and the author's are valuable. Reflect on whether or not you are prepared for their response, negative or cordial, or a lack of one. It is not guaranteed the author is going to implement what you're stating. Also, I would look at previous reviews to see how the author and their fanbase responds to both the positive and the critical reviews. I've seen authors that are open to any feedback, and the authors that are only looking for positive reviews. Meaning, for the latter, they may take it out of context because of hurt feelings when in fact you were writing your genuinely helpful opinion. And sometimes their fans may jump on the bandwagon―with or without prompting―to unfairly bash your comment. Generally there are people that are going to be curious about what you wrote, to see if it really lives up to the hype you're claiming. The mistake or scene that personally bothered you so much may not necessarily be such a bother to them. So think about whether or not it's a concern that must be aired. If you want the author to improve, it's splendid that you are trying to help their story out, whether it be plotholes or characterizations (warning, be careful when you're criticizing their character borders on being personal). If you want their story to flunk, you'd do best to just ignore it. Once a story receives a lot of attention, people are going to read it. Bad publicity is still free publicity. It's not just praise.
    5. Read through your review before submitting it. Make certain your underlying message is stated clearly. Your mission is to get them to go through the trouble of editing what has already been written. You have to make them think it is worth the effort. You want to look like you know what you're saying. You'd want to appear earnest and sincere. It's generally easier for the author to understand which paragraph or scene bothered you if you reference it in your review, and then suggested how it could be improved with an example and an explanation of why you think they should consider editing it. Think of yourself as a lawyer, presenting your case and evidence to a jury. Be convincing. Explain why yours would be better. You want to win them over, getting the verdict you want. In this case, taking your words into consideration. And like a lawyer, you want to sound like you're learned, that you know what you're talking about over the other lawyer who is claiming otherwise. Also, while typos are understandable, doesn't it make you peeved when you've typed this eloquent response, and after you post it you notice your darn auto-correct had incorrectly changed some of the words for you? Yep, the struggle is real. Seriously though, this incident can be reduced with a second read-through. Although if the author's language is not your strong suit, I wouldn't suggest critiquing their language skills, grammar, spelling, and so forth unless you get someone to help you write your frustrations eloquently. Otherwise they might not take it seriously and you'll end up wasting your time.
    6. Please construct your criticism courteously and articulately, as if you're writing to a stranger who is unfamiliar to your personality. You don't need to be refined, polished, or graceful to win their favor. But writing is one of the hardest mediums to convey feelings, so even though you feel like you've gotten the gist of the author's personality, it's still considerably hard to transmute your emotions via written words than by mouth. Authors cannot easily tell your unique brand of wit and humor through your comment. They don't know you, so instead of coming off as lighthearted or matter-of-fact or sarcastic, your words may be taken as a "flame" or an insult or an attempt at trolling. I promise you, if your review sounds relatively articulate and sincere, it's going to catch the author's and other readers' attentions. In a good or bad way, it depends on your syntax and the author's receptiveness. Note that the power of your criticism wanes dramatically when you personally insult an author or their craft. The credibility of your advice also drops a little if your crit is ridden with typos and punctuation mistakes. Now, whether or not it still is taken into consideration depends if it's still valid. But people generally respond well to well-tailored suggestions instead of hostile accusations or crits that seem...slightly sketchy. Your passion and frustration are noted, but you do not need to punctuate it with aggression to get your "final word in." It makes you feel good, but not so much for the recipient of your shameless disrespect of another human being.
    7. Interject what you've enjoyed with what you didn't enjoy as much. Giving compliments is not merely to stroke the author's ego. It is a psychological technique that works for any crit, provided that the recipient is mature or open-minded enough. It'll show that you've made a concentrated effort to try to enjoy their creation, and depending on their maturity the creator should be more receptive to hearing your opinion no matter how scathing it gets. (Note that if the author seems like the sort that doesn't take well to negative feedback yet you still desperately desire to say your piece for whatever reason, you may need to lay the charm on thick. To the point that it feels disgustingly saccharine. When you write about the more negative bit, talk about how it made you feel. Why was it so offensive? You want to garner their sympathy and condolences than their automatic, defensive ire.) You'll want to gift them with a peace of mind and good cheer so that they react to your crit with reason than with emotion. So even if you think they're terrible at something and it feels like pulling teeth trying to come up with something nice to say, don't just jump straight into your condemnation and leave with it. You don't want them to take your advice as an insult or a delusional claim, no matter how affronted you feel. Again, your goal is to try to get them to improve and edit what is considered terrible to you. Either suggest how they might improve constructively or just read a less aggravating story instead. You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. Meaning, you win people to your side more easily by gentle persuasion and flattery than by hostile confrontation. If you want something, do you get better results through rudeness or through politeness (even if it's faked)?
    8. You might want to get rid of insults or anything that can be seen as an insult. It's good to be open and forthright. But there is such a thing as going overboard. Leaving a "bad review" will not necessarily warn or put other people off of reading the fanfiction. You are contributing to the hype and helping the author's story via free publicity. Think of it as a product. There are many products out there on the shelves that suit your tastes and needs better, and both you–the consumer–and the author–the designer–know this. If it isn't worth your time (money), you move onto something better. Let's say you may want to write a user review online. Human factors and statistics dictate those who write a review about the product are biased in the fact that they are the people who feel strongly about it and is fact missing the opinions of a vast amount of people in between. If a user feedback seems particularly belligerent or flattering, as human beings we are inclined to see what the rage is about and form our own opinions. So: if you think you see a tiring trend or if their style of writing or characterization frustrates you, you aren't getting anywhere by verbally attacking someone. Calm down. It is just a story. A fan's inspired story that you are reading for free and that they've written in their spare time. It is not going to influence informed readers into thinking that it's true or canon. It is not going to be published as an extension to the original lore. It did not go through an intensive, professional editing process. It is not written as a transgression against what you love. Don't make this into a crusade to stop people from utilizing certain tropes or cliches or characterizations that you personally are tired of. They are writing for a market that is obviously not for you.
    9. Don't start or end your constructive criticism dramatically! In other words, don't leave it or begin with an expression of incredulity or a dramatic declaration like an offended prima donna. You want the author to take you seriously, and not have them scratch their heads or roll their eyes at your comment. If there's any doubt, phrase it into a question like: "those are what I'd noticed, but I'm uncertain if they were intentional?" A questioning tone should give you a lifeline and spare you from their initial hostile reaction or from facing the brunt of their ire if it turns out they were doing it on purpose. Launching headfirst into an offended and frustrated tirade makes you seem childish and temperamental, and that is NOT what you want your image to be portrayed as.

    AS A PERSONAL NOTE: You are entirely welcome to give me constructive criticism! As you see, I'm open to suggestions and have edited my content based on a few that I've agreed with! I acknowledge my mistakes. But while I generally don't take critiques as a personal attack, I can get irritated by a lack of tact or if I can sniff out discrepancies from what's being claimed. I have to reiterate: I am not fond of superficiality, and generally in written word I can spot a hint of pretense. The suspicion just comes naturally. I am a designer. Criticisms–receiving them and giving them–are a part of my daily schedule. I understand they are to promote the level of my work and make it better than it is. I've also learnt to pick and choose which ones to listen to and which ones to disregard. It doesn't bother me if not everyone likes what I present since everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I can't satisfy everyone's needs, so I focus on the demographic that matters, least my project become muddled and far from its original vision. But out of respect to those that had logged in and had written eloquently (even if it's lacking any real constructive feedback, I can distinguish a flame from a crit), you may get a civil if not a bit irritated reply back. Because, really? I'd rather my audience to be a respectful and courteous crowd where we can share our insights and opinions freely without dropping insults or taking immature potshots at each other like children. See what I did there? Hasty conclusions are not so much hurtful as it is "smh."

    LONG STORY SHORT: The fanfiction you're reading is offered for free, so there is very little motivation for the author to edit their content than if they were paid. Authors are not obliged to listen or to stop writing something per se, if it goes against their plot or if they're disinclined to put in the effort. In other words, don't be sad if your criticism seemingly contributed very little to their writing. Be happy that your words were hopefully taken seriously! If you've made a valid point, your sincerity will influence them as they write future installments like sticky gum. But it doesn't work as well if you make your words seem like a personal attack. Remember, you want your time to have been well spent and not be disregarded! Much luck and happy writing!


    NEGATIVES: I'm not discouraging writers, as there are markets for everything I have issues with listed below, but these are the top reasons that I personally can be taken out of a story or get irritated by. I generally avoid reading anything that has these. And yes, I may generalize to prove a point.

    Begging or Holding a Story Hostage for Reviews: To summarize, if you don't (at least pretend to) show confidence in your story, how can you expect us, your audience (strangers), to have confidence in your writing? Begging for sympathy or attention, I’ve noticed, mostly occurs among beginning or younger writers, based on the assumption that it is alright solely because they’ve seen others doing so as well. Begging for mercy is…more pitiful than aggravating; I think it’s demeaning to you and to me. To be honest, it makes the writer seem desperate, and I don’t like being manipulated emotionally. However I will admit to having fallen into this pitfall too in my earlier writings, so I can be sympathetic regarding this pet peeve of mine. Yet I am still annoyed whenever I see it. I have a talent in reading materials at an astonishing pace, so I can afford to peruse through a seemingly less-then-stellar story, even with its questionable summary or plot, in order to be fair and see if it’s actually any better. But it is a human inclination to form initial first impressions of anything. I need to be hooked. The instant I see that the author is wasting space by telling me it is their first story, that their story is better than their summary, that they suck at summaries so they’re not even going to try writing one, or that I should simply click to find out more…I’ve already formed the opinion that the story’s most likely not going to be for me. Then I prepare myself for the disappointment. Even if you’re stumped at coming up with compelling summaries, at least try to write something that warns your readers what they’re getting themselves into, or at least succinctly describe your concept so that we can see if it’s for us. Throw in a question. You can even write how you think your story is different from everyone else’s. Give yourself a little credit. You are not making your fanfiction seem cooler or more mysterious by withholding a summary. You are merely wasting the reader’s time and losing a fair amount of interest you could’ve gotten had you advertised your story. You are your own PR agent. There are thousands of other stories out there, so why would you think we’d give yours a chance if we don’t know what we’re reading? Reel us in. Also, dear, when you plead with your readers to be easy on you because it’s your first story, you’re potentially inviting yourself to a mean-spirited predator or a troll. If you don't exude confidence/ potential, it demonstrates the writer's inexperience and unreliability. When you beg us to “R&R” or write that you won’t be updating until you get a specific number of votes or reviews…chances are you’ll piss off your fan-base than getting them to rush to meet your quota. You’d have to be extraordinarily confident and decently skilled at writing in order to successfully pull this off. I say this because when I see this happen, the stories that demand this usually fall very short of achieving their goal. Most of all, it comes off as obnoxious and like a spoiled child demanding attention. If you desire to ask for reviews, at least make it sound nicer.

    Certain Clichés/ Tropes: Nothing is original anymore. Therefore we can only take our spin on what is contrived and hopefully make it our own. But sometimes I see lazy or unimaginative recycled writing both in the real world and fanfiction, that I cannot suspend my disbelief any longer. Almost every writer falls into these clichéd traps. It personally annoys me when, in modern timelines, the more "submissive" romantic lead acts in any way inferior to the more "dominant" romantic lead for no other reason than the fact that it is a cute, kitschy Hollywood formula/ trope they do not even bother to make slightly original. It personally annoys me to see any infinitives/verbs related to this person who "sighed" or "blushed" or "whined" or "pouted" or "smirked" for the umpteenth time in what is considered a serious, non-satirical piece. It annoys me when strong characters advertised to be so become two-dimensional cardboard cutouts who do nothing but whine and depend on others without given the ability to act on their own free will irrelevantly to the plot. It annoys me when the protagonists' common sense is lacking or unfortunately have the IQ of a rock when s/he doesn't need to be that way. I have a lot of other pet peeves but, to wrap up, when I read stories that have one or more of what is listed, most of the time the back arrow cannot be clicked fast enough. These stories are the ones I typically do not like to read personally and therefore I typically will not review.

    Exercising Etiquette: Be polite and well-mannered, please, if you desire an intelligent, mature reply back. Also, please consider reading my full response before replying back just in case I'd already answered your question. Common sense and decency still exist in the world, so it escapes me why some individuals do not comprehend or choose to turn them off when intending to interact civilly with someone. It's already bad enough that I see this happening in some reviews for well-to-do fics. As much as I'm aware of the festering pits of the Internet and the psychology of why people act this way, I am forced to put this out as a public service: if you PM or review authors with a request or questions, please be courteous. We are strangers. Don't behave like a self-entitled princess/prince. Don't demand something and expect us to follow through with it if we haven't agreed. I cannot believe I have to write this out for some people. Honestly I try to keep my irritation in check and patiently, politely reply back to any incessantly rude PMs in hopes that they either change their tune or that the conversation could be done with soon. But it comes to the point when they bypass my attempts to end our conversations with an air of finality that I become irritated. We are not under contractual obligation to provide a stranger with more help or to listen to your demand when we feel personally offended by the individual behind it. As a fair warning, some authors aren't as indulgent as I am. Note that we are voluntarily give you attention despite the workloads we have in our own personal busy lifestyle which I'm sure reflects your own. Out of the kindness of our hearts, we put effort into our responses. No one would feel inclined to do more for you when they feel like their previous efforts were rebuffed, ignored, and/or unappreciated.

    Melodramatic Angst: Have there been the rare good stories that, despite having pointlessly melodramatic angst, that I've enjoyed? Yes, grudgingly so. But I find little appeal reading about a hurt protagonist (female or male) who has been beaten, raped, insulted, kicked when they are down, manipulated, betrayed by loved ones, bullied, targeted by everyone, lusted after, stalked, AND so forth. Please note the conjunction. It is of my opinion that having the protagonist go through all the nine circles of hell like a checklist for the sake of evoking reader sympathy is such a needlessly cruel and clichéd tool for authors to constantly rely on, especially if the victim does not come out stronger from it. It also irks me when I read a part of the story where the protagonist is being diagnosed and all of a sudden they are announced to have broken bones, cracked ribs, signs of malnutrition, a history of abuse, a concussion, blood clots, bruises and so forth. Yes, I agree with your healer/doctor/nurse/mediwitch that it is miraculous they are even alive. And how disbelieving they are no one has noticed it. The obvious has been stated.

    Original Characters (OC): It's a double-edged sword. We are reading your story for sake of a certain cast of characters in a certain fandom or fandoms, so when the protagonist shares equal screen-time with an OC I don't care about, I am immediately taken out of the story. I can trudge through it if your story is worth being exposed to the horror that is your Mary-Sue or Gary-Sue character, but I can only swallow so much. I can usually tell they are not going to be great OCs if the story provides me an actual bio of their character, detailing how they'd look and behave, then finding discrepancies from their appearance to the way they are written to act or speak. If they are irrelevant to the plot's progression―literally being a waste of dialogue and unnecessary focus―if I am still interested in the story I skip their scenes as best as I can. Also, I have to close my eyes in irritation when the OC has a foreign name that does not suit the story environment or atmosphere. Give me a reasonable backstory, please. Otherwise I doubt a Gary or Mary would be born in Japan. I doubt a Yuuki or Kaori would be born in the US if their ancestry weren't of Asian origin or inspired by oriental influence. Give a reasonable backstory of how your OC knows the language or characters. Culturally-speaking, if a foreigner is in a different country for a first time, it's more realistic if they are regarded with curious suspicion than with idealized, widespread acceptance and adoration. If they're in a different time, there will be inconsistencies in understanding each other's slang and terminologies. Also, there are more personalities than a pretty boy/woman who shouts a lot or acts comedically in the presence of a romantic lead in a non-humor fic, smacks an annoying male character upside the head and can beat the tar out of someone without consequences like in an anime, is that cheeky guy/girl who the main character is irritated by but still keeps around for some reason, or behaves the way they are because of an angsty, melodramatic past that I really couldn't care about. Not everyone is going to like him/her. Not everyone is going to bully him/her. Also, if you're going down the tough-guy route or a girl who needs to be broken out of her emotionless shell, make it original by realistically giving them flaws than this perfect, assholely tsundere with cold, dead eyes or a smirk, coughing up blood over their drool-worthy body and expensive finery that you've dedicated a fair amount of paragraphs to describing. Develop them as a character, who learns to stand up for themselves, discovers themselves or the meaning of something, or learns to express emotion or form connections. Anything! I just...argh.

    Out of Character (OOC) and Bashings: Bashings are only amusing the first few handful of times before they become cartoonishly evil and I just want the character to die in order for the story to focus on something else. I tolerate many creative liberties with a canonical personality, but it is a strike against the author when the character's written in an extreme way that reminds me that they don't act like that in the original material in a non-OOC fic. I like reading a smarter, more powerful character. I like their leap in maturity. I understand the deaging. I agree with your attempt to humanize the character or make them somehow relateable. I could grow to like a unique spin on a character. But when they become as irritatingly weak as a kitten (becoming dramatically dependent) or stereotypically nasty (to the point that I conjure up an image of a villain twirling his handlebar mustache and cackling), I literally have to face-palm.

    Romance Clichés: ...I love romances. Truly, I do. But it personally annoys me when it's sex-on-first-sight in non-PWP labeled fics and/or the leads somehow magically fall in love with no reason other than "holy-BBQ-they're-hot! Must have sex with them!" Rushing is only well-managed by a few authors. A shallow attraction, like Disney's the Little Mermaid where Ariel falls in love with Prince Eric and silently endured all these hardships solely because he was handsome, is generally not a good basis for a relationship or a story. I'd always thought that movie was a bit dumb. And hollow. I'd like to personally see the author develop the relationship more meaningfully in a chaptered storyline if they're going the realistic, long route. I'd love it even more if there was a credible reason why so-and-so are attracted to each other. I need a reason, even if it's something as quick as s/he resembles someone they know, it's a Soulmate!AU premise, they're the character's type, or it's their first time seeing someone so exotic and beautiful, etc. Also, I understand dubcon and rape is fetishized on the Internet but…I am thrown for a loop when suddenly they are written to resort to this drastic extreme. It’s probably because the topic of "what is consent" is such a serious issue in reality that sometimes I find these fanfics a bit on the distasteful side if they don’t have a satisfying conclusion and it’s just…merely…there. Like a piece of dung. That isn’t addressed and doesn’t even need to be written. Give the victims closure. Give me a reason other than that you needed to somehow make your MC’s life all the more painful so that you can justify her/him running away to find comfort in another man’s or woman’s arms. Most of all, I am bothered by stories of somnophilia or where the character is drunk/ in heat, and suddenly sex is thrown into this imagined scenario. I just…I just can’t. I know it’s sexy to a lot of people since it’s just a fantasy, but I can’t muster myself to get behind it despite knowing that. Consent is a huge issue in college campuses and society, I can’t help but think the writer is sheltered or a young teen who has not yet been exposed to the harsh realities of life if this sort of scenario is fetishized or idealized as romantic. It’s just the way a majority of them are written that makes me think that. There’s this…innocence and naivete that accompanies their writing which stand out to me. Truth of the matter is, it can be done; writing this is a tasteful way (even in the A/B/O verse, although rare). I’ve seen it and I follow these writers, because they’re exploring something with so much self-awareness and sometimes with social commentary. But I noticed it’s not quite…common and fandoms are instead filled with PWPs that make this hot character have sex with our mentally-incapacitated MC. Out of decency, I have to hold myself back from ruining people’s fun just because there’s a part of me that sometimes wants to give people a reality-check. My compromise is to just bypass these stories, and let others enjoy it before the inevitable realities of life come crashing in when these youngsters gain worldly experience outside of highschool (or even outside of institutions for the younger folks on AO3 and

    Shortening Someone's Name/Cutesy Petnames/Nicknames: I prefer reading someone's first name or surname in a written piece of work instead of a petname unless it is justified by the author's plot. I also have a bone to pick with female endearments that essentially replace the character's names. The original author slaved away picking the perfect names for their creations, so I find it offensive if I don't somehow honor that in my stories unless it is canonically fitting that nicknames spring up due to a situation or a certain character. For example, Nymphadora Tonks is just referred to as "Tonks" due to her canonical distaste for her mother's naming ability, and this is a perfectly good reason that I can live with. Butchering "Draco," a perfectly beautiful name, into the cutesy "Drake" or "Dray" isn't. I simply have a hard time swallowing that characters such as Severus Snape will accept being called "Sev," Sherlock Holmes as "Sher" or "Sherly," Kagome Higurashi as "Onna" or "Gome," Sesshomaru being called "Sessh" or "Sessho" or "Sho" or "Maru," Sirius Black as "Siri," or Inuyasha being called "Yash" or "Yasha." I understand they're supposed to be affectionate endearments to show the depth of a relationship, yet it is incredibly off-putting and demeaning to the character. I make an effort to bypass it in my reading material if an "icky" petname is used sparingly, but a red flag goes off in my head when it essentially becomes the character's go-to address.

    Unnecessary Feminization of a Male Character: This is slightly controversial, my opinion that is. It’s fine when authors are trying to write a unique personality. These people do exist. Not every guy has to be masculine, because that's perpetuating a gender stereotype that puts a big pressure on men to try to emulate. But it’s another thing when this characterization becomes a stereotype of homosexual men. It’s probably a bigger issue for me because I have friends who are gay, lesbian, bi, polyamorous, pansexual, etc. in reality…yet only one of them acts somewhat like a character in a clichéd homosexual fanfiction (the incredible amount of seme/ uke―dominant/ submissive―stories and mpregs have become only a small guilty pleasure of mine nowadays). Even then he only vaguely acts like the fashion-forward “flaming gay friend.” It’s not to say that there aren’t guys who don’t fit the mold, and are more “feminine” than what we traditionally expect. There’s nothing wrong with that. All it matters is that they’re happy. I also identify with female authors who cannot help making one or more of their male characters “feminine,” because inherently it’s hard to disassociate ourselves from it. There’s also the fact that this particular portrayal is so well-known and within our comfort zone. Kinks are fun. I also understand the characters we are writing are ultimately wish-fulfillment characters. But when I read a story where a male character has become “emasculated” and could in fact be a wishy washy, attractive, blushing original female character but with a dick, I start losing interest. Characters who are idealized as androgynous beauties are also rarely written well. Without a strong plot foundation to lean on, this teenaged-fetishized personality and physical appearance flummoxes me. To be fair, I am willing to give it a try and continue on…but I need to be eased into either of these characterizations in a non-PWP story, especially if they’re writing the shy damsel-in-distress nymph that has the strength and willpower of a limp stick until the romantic lead gets them mewling in bed. -sighs- Yes, they may spread their legs for whoever they want or plow into whatever makes them happy (consentually). But give me a reason why they’re suddenly crossdressing or looking like a woman. (It can be as simple as your character subconsciously identifying that as attractive and sexually-empowering.) Please don’t just fetishize it and treat it like thee apex of beauty to strive toward in order to attract a mate. Why is he so willing to be on the “bottom”/ submissive/ the “uke” if it’s his first time? How did he develop a crush on this person? If it’s his first time wearing a flowing feminine garment and makeup, give me his thoughts on it other than “he perfectly looks just like a girl with blushing cheeks, alabaster white skin, lush and pouty petal pink lips, a pert ass, and teary, soulfully big eyes that one could drown in!” What has made him or her choose this lifestyle? How has his environment affected him? Yes, I’d like to see people accept him for who he or she is. I'd still need literary justification in order to suspend my disbelief, than jumping straight into this without warning. If it’s not believable, I’m reminded that I’m most likely reading a shameless self-insert fanfiction but with the character’s name (and/or looks) replacing the author’s. It’s rarely well-done. The main gripe I have with it is that it’s rarely established for reasons of plot and characterization, and it makes me think the character is weak and pitiful if they aren’t written to learn to stand up for themselves or to learn to ignore any vilifying. Also…really, is he going to automatically look attractive or convincingly girly the instant he puts on a feminine garment? Is he going to be like, yes, give me that kimono, give me those kohl-lined eyes, and give me that girly haircut just to look beautiful? Is he really going to blush all the time? Drag queens take hours just to look convincingly feminine or like their female drag personas; and they have more gumption than whom I’m reading about. Where is his pride and masculinity? I don’t care if he wants to be a girl and has gone through surgery. It’s just…you’re writing about a guy. Whom canonically acts in the opposite of what you’re portraying and in real life would retain an ounce of masculinity due to cultural upbringings and the gender expectations we as a society foist on our people. Develop this characterization, so that it’s not perceived as unnecessary feminization. Make it count. Not every guy is going to extremely hate or fall in love with this character, once he becomes a girl or like one. Allow the people around him to be straight, homosexual, pansexual, demisexual, asexual, etc. Otherwise it starts to come off as a little misogynistic or even sexist. “Flaming gay” individuals out-of-the-closet and proud of their sexuality do not always follow the stereotype; nor do they always want to look or act like a carbon-copy of a girl. In slash fiction, these characters can become caricatures instead of a well-developed character, which breaks my immersion into the world you’re trying to bring me into. Even weak characters have their strengths. Girls have their strengths. Homosexuals have their strengths. Effeminate characters have their strengths. Sure, you can make him as effeminate and girly as you want―go for it; it’s your fantasy; I’m not policing anything―but unless they’re transsexual or transgender (that’s still shaky as a reason), discovering themselves, rebelling against the system, or whatever is relevant to plot/ character development, I think the point of a slash story is missed when a homosexual romance starts veering towards heterosexual love.

    POSITIVES: These are mostly the ones that have taken me by surprise, and in a good way.

    Constructive Criticisms: Only when they're designed as suggestions of improvement, and not demotivating insults for tearing down a person. Sure, it may initially put a dart in our pride but good authors who care about their craft and reading fan-base are happy to own up to their mistakes by editing their content. But personally while I may give my opinion, the author is not obligated to agree. It makes me happy when authors inform me that they'll be willing to consider it, should they happen to concur. If not, it's their story so I am at peace with their disagreement.

    Genderbending: There are many reasons why a character is genderbent. One, the author may have issues writing about same sex relationships. Two, he or she has a plot that requires the character to experience events in the perspective of the opposite sex. Three, they're fulfilling a fantasy of theirs or it is fanservice. Or four, it is a shameless self-insert or Mary-sue/Gary-Sue or OC that is under the pretense of being a fandom character in order to get people interested and racket up story popularity. There are cons with each underlying reason, but sometimes something good can come from them.

    Male Pregnancies (Mpreg): ...I admit I've read quite a lot. I can't help it when the stories with the most reviews have it. Personally I don't go out of my way to read Mpreg stories, but there are some well-written ones who celebrate the phenomenon and pay it the respect it deserves. When it's just used for mindless angst-fuel, coupled with unneeded male feminization, I get annoyed. When authors realistically portray it and give it sound reasoning, I am impressed.

    OCs: With prolonged exposure, I've grown to accept original characters who are not the main focus (or if they are, at least they are overshadowed by the canonical characters, thank goodness). Some authors have also made these OCs important plot devices, but fortunately they are well-written enough that I do not get the impression they are disgustingly perfect or are shallow self-inserts. I'm of the opinion when an author includes OCs, it's difficult for them to maintain focus. So when a story does not veer towards ruin, I can admire the author's skill at making an original character have a decent personality or making us readers root for their demise by our protagonist's hands. I've come across good authors who can give their OCs appearances and personalities that are both attractive and flawed, and write them in a way that suits the environment or plot.

    Purple-Prose: I snicker and roll my eyes whenever writers utilize this. Yet, over the years, I have come to tolerate flowery descriptions and poetic rhetoric should the characters and plot hold my interest. It's because of my bemused tolerance and several authors' influence that I have grown fond of purple-prose, should the content be well-written and developed. I mean, I could always skip the hammy bits and instead focus on what's really driving the story. Physical descriptions are the least important to me as a reader personally.

    Reinventing Tropes or Premises: I like it when writers turn what is conventional and done to death into something unconventional and inspired. There are thousands of stories out there that have quite a few that unfortunately follow the same formulaic equation that they become predictable at some point. With the amount I read, it comes to a point that I start noticing a trend in the fandom(s), and I grow bored. Thus when someone also notices that and provides us with new content that is both well-written and tongue-in-cheek witty and self-aware, I am very fond of the author and their story. I especially adore when the writers develop their own headcanon at some point in the story that they are able to refuse some reader suggestions and don't need to poll their audience every single step of the way on what to do next. It shows that they're confident in the direction they're leading us, and that's usually a good sign (even if it leads to a tragic or bittersweet ending). I've seen many A/B/O premises, supernatural AU, betrayal or character bashing fics, Soulmate/Soulmark, Sentinel/Guide, timetravel, overpowered!character, dark!character, name it, that were turned on their heads and were written in a way that is singular and refreshing.

    Well-Written Stories/ Summaries: Badly-written ones make me cringe and the ones with the most potential, I cannot help but feel sorry for the authors when it is so shoddily written. First impressions are everything. Typically readers like stories that are coherent and don't make us labor through it just to understand a sentence. At first I can tolerate it in the rare occasions that I am interested but when there is no sign of improvement the further I go into the story, I grow frustrated and have to drop it for sake of my sanity. It's just, however an author's plot may be clichéd, when their story or summary is well-written and grammatically-correct and has the correct punctuation and has correct spelling most of the time, I'm more inclined to give that story a chance. I'm also more forgiving of their mistakes. I identify with authors having typos obviously not intended to show up, based on the syntax of their content. The worst offenders are foreign authors that candidly state English is not their first language. However I admire their willingness to improve and to take the chance to reedit their stories based on reader feedback. This can also be applied to English-fluent authors. It's something about a well-written story that gives me the illusion that I'm reading a professionally-published book.
