Hi, I'm Alice. My birthday is 11/11/96.
Sometimes I ask books to take me away. The amazing thing about books is... some oblige. And that is why there are very few people I can stand in this world. Most humans will never compare to those white or tan or even grayish paper covered in black ink. Books are my savior, my sanctuary. "They love anyone who opens them." -Eleanor Loredan from Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
An now, a brief explanation and what may seem like a mild rant:
I am aware that there‘ve been things being take down/ “flamed on”. To be honest, I feel that many of the fics being removed and harshly critiqued deserve it. I've been actually searching for these fics, and, to put it similarly to Gaaras1Girl, they’re often steaming, stinking, oozing piles of putrid shit.
I’m not saying that they all deserve to be removed. I have several chapters of fics that I’m sure most of the CU members would dislike. I also know that I had some oozing steamy piles of shit on here, which I deleted to clear up the clutter (and to hopefully spare myself some humiliation). Any CU members who would like to critique my fanfiction are welcome to do so, and I would very much prefer it if they would in a respectful manner. Hopefully what I write is well-done enough and proficient to their standards; if not, I ask that they don’t “flame” me, and politely tell me what they liked/disliked. I’d much prefer it if they would not gang up on me, as I've heard some complaints of that (though these may easily be exaggerations) and that they please PM me if a discussion is to ensue.
Most likely, I will resist removing any of my content. I believe (if I am wrong, feel free to inform me) I have the proper ratings, and whatever “moral boundaries” you have may not be the same as my own. Gandhi said “There are as many religions in the world as there are people.” This can be interpreted a multitude of ways, but if you’ll allow me to, I’d like to show you the track I’m on.
To me, this quote means that everyone has different boundaries, ideals, and concepts of right and wrong. Things are blurred and mixed and I think it’s safe to say that no two people completely agree. That being said, I will have a very different idea of life, what is right, wrong, just, etc. from you. I ask that you not tell me I am a “moron”, “Idiot”, “Fantard”(Which by the way is extremely frustrating and annoying as is anything with the improper suffix “tard” added to it), “bigot”, “asshole”, etc. simply because I disagree with you. Nothing is black and white. There are always shades of grey.
So, this is just a sort of informational piece from me to you. I don’t care whether you’re a CU member or not, this may be useful. If you didn't find it useful, then I’d ask that you don’t PM me with things like "Ur so retarded,” as that is, again, annoying. If you’d like, I’ll talk with you about the rules of the site, about my fics, and/or about any violations you believe I am making.
Thank you for reading,
Mimicry is the most sincere form of flattery.
People often say "What is wrong with you?!" I tend to reply, "You want a list?"
Some days you can't do it right. Some days you're out of touch with everyone else. Some days are scary. But if you let that keep you from walking out the door every morning, you're never going to not be afraid; and that would just be sad.
