Hello, and welcome to my profile. Feel free to have a look around, maybe have a seat. Would you like a drink? Or perhaps a smoke?
What Makes A Good Fic By: Kraken's Ghost (I completely agree with this, with exception that I think human sacrifice is a REALLY bad idea.)
Proper, natural, and generally well done character development.
New and innovating ideas and concepts, especially ones that inspire the urge to write a fic of your own.
The original concepts, ideas, and characters as laid out by the author's canon are all given their just due. (After all, if we were important, we'd be making money off our writing, not wasting our time writing fanfics. :P)
Are there concepts in this fic that are just flat out sexy, in one way or another?
Proper grammar. (This is a killer.)
Proper spelling. (Another killer, but not as severe as grammar.)
How addictive the fic is. Do you want to see the latest chapter like yesterday or could you care less about whether this chimpanzee that advertises itself as an author lets loose another stream textual garbage?
Whether the fic in general gives you a powerful motivation to start writing you own.
Then we use this scale:
Great Fic: Has all the above. This is a fic you worship like none other. Build this thing a shrine and sacrifice the innocent to it.
Good Fic: Has most of the above. A fic you check for updates at least once a week or so. Can't wait for the new chapter, so hurry the eff up already!
Decent Fic: Has enough of the above that it's still on your favorites. Not the best, but still there if you get bored.
Okay Fic: Has some of the list. Rather bland really. You read these when you nothing else has been updated in awhile.
Crap Fic: Has at most one or two traits from the above list. Degrades from mere 'bland' to 'painful' to read. Shove a javelin up this loser's butt.
Shit Fic: Has NONE of the above. Totally unworthy of your time. An exercise in mental torture to even glance at. You can wish this 'author' will die and it won't affect you karma negatively.
