I am a 28 year old housewife with one son. I love to read power ranger stories that revolve around Tommy and Kimberly.
I am strictly a reader/reviewer. If I had the talent to write stories based on characters that already exist, I definitely would. I prefer to write poetry.
I believe that great writing should receive great reviews, good writing deserves good reviews, and bad writing gets nothing. I was always taught that if you can't say anything good, don't say anything at all. I try to give as detailed reviews as I can to writers that truly deserve it. I believe that they put so much time and effort into entertaining us and touching us with their words, that I feel obligated to give them something in return. Since they don't get money for this, though some of them deserve it, I give them my words as payment. Just saying 'update soon' doesn't feel right to me. I tell them how I felt while reading the chapter, what I liked about it, and even what I didn't like about it. I read stories for what they are and not to make sure they follow a certain timeline or keep every fact straight. If they want to bash a character, I believe it's THEIR choice. If they want to write in total AU, that's fine with me. As long as it's their original story, they should be able to write what they want. I'm not saying that we all have to like it, but at least respect the writer for being original.
Now, what I DON'T like are thieves, people who copy other people's writing and call it their own. If and when I find this, I don't hesitate to report it.
I think I have read ALL if not, most TK stories on this site. I discovered this website three years ago. The first story I ever read was Cheryl Roberts' All I Want For Christmas. I didn't even know fanfic existed. From that point on, all I do with my free time is read, read, read. I have even lost sleep reading. Hey, when it's good, it's good. And when it's bad, it's funny. I just have to laugh at the bad stuff. I admit that I am addicted to it.
Some of my favorite writers are Shawn30, White-Knight-1988, Lilyrose284, SYuri, and Supergal2005. I honestly can't say what my favorite story of all is, it's just too hard and I've read too many to say.
I don't mind writers taking their time to update their stories. I have SO many on alert that at least one of them gets updated everyday. All I ask is that writers give us readers a heads up as to what's going on with them and their stories. Just let us know whether or not you have abandoned a story and that you haven't forgotten about us. I hate reading a story and getting all into it to find out not only that it's incomplete, but also that it hasn't been updated in over a year and I have to email the writer to find out what's going on. Just let us know on your profile page. That's all I ask.
As of 6/25/08: My laptop was stolen, so I will sporadically be online. Unfortunately, I won't be able to read/review like I usually do. When I do get the chance to get online, I'll probably have too many updates to read to leave detailed feedback like I usually do. And I'll be moving in August from Detroit to Orlando, so that will put me even more behind. PLEASE KEEP WRITING!
As of 1/7/09: I have officially returned to the world wide web! After six months, I finally have my hands on a laptop. So, now I can catch up on what I've missed and start to review again like I used to. To those of you who care, I'M BACK!!
