Kimchi is a spicy cabbage dish. Delicious, but not everybody likes it. An acquired taste, you could say? Some will never like it, while others will love it. It's also super salty.
Including lurking time, I've been on this site for over a decade. Not even going to mention how long I've been reading fanfics in general, because... to put it simply: I'm old.
I do not write anymore, bc tbh I'm mediocre & far better at editing & critiquing than creating. I am a pretty prolific reviewer though, and I'm probably the one spamming your inbox by leaving you a review for every chapter, with ea review the length of a short essay.
I love reading self-indulgent fanfics though, rather than realistic work with Consequences, bc I like getting a reprieve from daily stress when I hop online. I do enjoy the odd heavy action/adventure fanfic with worldbuilding & intrigue, though.
