By putting this on my profile, I insert the Universal Disclaimer into all my stories: I own nothing that is familiar to the reader, and everything save OCs belongs to the respective author of the Book/TV Show/Film/Game that spawned the fandom
*My AtLA fic's pic is taken from a sight that reblogged it. So... yeah. There, disclaimer for it.
This is why I have come to avoid using the term in critique.
MY FANFICTION PHILOSOPHY:If you like it enough for a FAVORITE or WATCH why not COMMENT?
My brain seems to be a breeding ground for plot bunnies. It also seems to be where they come to quietly die in groups like elephant graveyards.
My interests are numerous but they all circle back to writing. Psychology and ETC, all for making a character.
My opinion OCs has changed over the years. It feels like male-OC's are more accepted in a position where female OCs were once shoved in. Don't get me wrong, I see nothing wrong with homosexual love and straight characters turned gay when it's well written and easy to "believe". I realize that it's more "new" and interesting for a male OC in what is usually a female OC's place. I just find it amusing, the dynamic I'm sort of seeing here and there.
I suppose only a writer knows what a writer wants to see in reviews.
If you read this and you're a serial watch/fav and run, try dropping, at the very least, a single line about what you liked and did not like about the fic. Doesn't have to go in-depth, it will just be something. Seriously. Do readers go through the entire chapters without having a single little thought about the story and contents? None at all?
My advice is to leave tiny reviews (at the very least) on fics you especially like. If you're not a writer then you have no idea how amazing it feels to open your email and find a review. Not just a review, but one that has substance and informs you that a reader thought about what you wrote and liked your fic enough to write something.
Don't worry about bad spelling, just leave a review. Five words, maybe twenty. Just a sentence.

ON WRITING MISTAKES: WORDS
Sapphic: I usually start with this one. It does NOT mean blue or water. I repeat it does NOT mean blue/water. I'm not saying the meaning 'cuz I'm too much of a prude.
DEFIANT: Boldly resisting authority or an opposing force. DEFINITELY: Without question and beyond doubt. One does not mean the other and I am beyond irritated that people keep putting DEFIANTLY when they mean definitely.
