Author has written 46 stories for Dragon Ball Z.
Hi everyone. Today, I'm going to address something that I think a lot of writers will approve of. You see, it has come to my attention that a lot of readers don't leave reviews to stories they enjoy because they don't know what to say except that it's good. I've recently talked about this with my new friend Mr. Me2 who had the same problem with giving feedback, so I gave him a few pointers, and now he writes really great reviews (if you ever get a review from him, you know who to thank too lol xD ).
And so I thought I'd do the same to you, who happen to have clicked on my bio. I think it'll help both readers and writers communicate and share perspectives, and maybe become friends too? There's nothing like a long debate to make friends, and that's one of my favorite parts about fanfiction.
All right, let's get started. If you don't know what to say in a review:
Well, that's a wrap for the little lesson on giving feedback, lol. Oh, and one last thing: if you leave a guest review with a question to the writer, it would be wise to add a way they can reply to you directly, like maybe Twitter or Instagram or maybe deviantART -- something that wouldn't make you share an email address or a full name publicly (we still got to be careful on the Internet, don't we?). I'm saying this because it's frustrating when a guest review asks a relevant question and I can't answer them directly. I've used author's note to reply to them, but I don't really like doing that because it doesn't necessarily concerns or interests the other readers, and sometimes I'm not even sure they saw the update and my reply. Or maybe just leave signed reviews when it's to ask something, lol, that sounds a lot simpler doesn't it?
I hope this message will get across. Don't hesitate to copy and paste it on your bio, I don't even care if you don't credit me lol.
Hi everyone, I hope you are all enjoying my updates lately. ;) I sure am enjoying your reviews, so keep them coming lol!
I do have something I would like to address. I have nothing against criticisms, on the contrary, I encourage you to nitpick at my fics and challenge me to get better. But, when the criticism is that the characters I write about are flawed -- that Videl is selfish and self-centered in To See You Again, or that Gohan is reckless and doesn't always think things through when he lets his feelings get the better of him, like risking his life by provoking the cyborgs in TSYA when he knows he's the world's only hope -- to those critiques, let me just say this:
Yes, they are flawed. No, I am not writing about selfless, perfect heroes. Everybody is flawed, so are you, so am I, and there is no exception to this rule. I will continue to write about flawed characters and how they evolve and better themselves with time. It's called character development, and a story is nothing without it.
And to those who think that the way I write Gohan and Videl fall so fast for each other most of the time is unrealistic, well, I think you've never experienced love at first sight. I can assure you that it exists for having felt it one time, and it's not something you can control. When it happens, it's instantaneous, and it only gets worse with time.
Anyway, now that's out of the way, enjoy reading my fanfics! :D
Well, I am officially back to the fanfic world! I just updated Innocent Feelings, and more should come soon. I'm currently in the process of rewriting To See You Again, and I think I will post the rewrite as a new story.
I'd like to thank again everyone who reviewed and PMed me after my announcement, you've all been incredibly understanding and nice and I'm happy to be back and write more GhVi for you. I guess time has helped me get over how awful DB Super is and just ignore its existence for the sake of my fics. It was just something I had to go through I think.
Anyway, I'm glad to be back. See you soon.
