My name is Kelly I live in the US. I'm 26 and one person who loves to read fanfictions. Now I would write my own stories if I didn't hold myself back thinking I don't get the right discription from my head on paper. Hopefully with my hard work at my job I can save to go to classes that might help me better with my writing. Until then I'll just be everyone's personal critic.

SAVE OUR STORIES AND SAVE THIS SITE
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:
As many others I disagree with what ff.net is now trying to do... I do want to keep my stories in this site, since I consider myself loyal and I've been here for many many years, 10, if you're wondering, and I find myself saddened by such actions. Instead of taking down those stories, the rating should be watched closely in order to prevent hurt feelings or beleifs! A disclaimer at the begining of the story is added for something, so if people keep reading despite the warnings, it must be because we want to!
It seems such a coincidence that Ray Bradbury has just passed away, you're burning our fics like his characters in "Farenheit 451" were burning books!!!!!
So if you like many of us writers and/or readers don't agree either, copy and paste this (what will be shown below) and add your name at the end of the list...
Also, you can sign the petition at
The administrators, as of June 4th, are going to be taking down Fics that have lemons or have extreme violence. Now I don't know about you but I think thats stupid. There are many wonderful fics that only have one or two lemons in them yet the plot itself is awesome! You can't just take down a 100,000 word fic just because it has a lemon in a chapter that is only 1000 words long. Now I urge you all to read the petition below, sign it, and repost this to your own fics. Hopefully if we make enough noise everything will return to normal. Thank you.
Greetings to the fine folk that moderate our site.
Myself, along with many, have been writing and posting on your fine site for years now, some of the better examples of up and coming writers out there are now suddenly finding some of the stories we've come to love at risk of being removed without the chance to even rectify our errors.
It's quite easy to simply add an MA rating, additional filters or even a simple requirement for a free membership to read the stories presented here, and would cut down on hateful anonymous reviews and posts at the same time, so I have to question as to why such a thing, in all this time, simply wasn't added.
If you're worried about falsification of a registration then have an appropriate disclaimer and then there can be no dispute, you took your steps and the PARENTS didn't monitor their children, if that is even your concern. If it is more of a personal view or desire then please at least let people know and give them a chance to remove a story that you and yours find offensive, most people on the site are actually rather cordial when it comes to such requests.
While I cannot say for sure if this letter will even reach those that may be willing to listen, of if it's more akin to a wide spectrum purge in preparation for something bigger, please understand that you are going to be looseing a LARGE number of your writers, and thus your income from a lack of readers if there is not some level of action taken to help with this situation.
For those that may agree with this, please feel free to sign on and send this to the support server, maybe we can get some movement on this.
