Whoever will enter my profile will be a person who is an author or writer of a fanfic I have just reviewed. There is no other way to notice my existence on fanfiction. ;)
I rarely review fanfics. There are couple reasons for that. Writing in English isn't hard but it's not easy either. And when I write a review I'm trying to do my best. Unlike many people here who are lazy and write a crap like "More." or "I like it.", I believe a writer who spends the better part of her/his day writing a fanfic deserves something better than that. That's why I'm trying to make my review long, detailed and full of good advises. The problem is, I am a real fanfic-freak and can sometimes read more that 20 stories per day. Commenting it all is hardly possible unless I spent all my day in front of PC - and this is definitely NOT possible. That's why I write reviews to stories I really like or I find a writer promising so I want to help her pointing out her/his mistakes. Or if writer sucks so much I simply can't be quiet. But it rarely happens. I must let you know I am a writer myself. I've been writing stories since I was a kid. I even consider myself a talented one and have many, many notebooks full of my own fanfics (I love writing by using old good pen). I want to say, I am not this type to complain and critic without knowing how it feels like to write a real thing. I wish I could type it all on PC, make some corrections and changes and add it all here. I'm sure fans of some series would love it. But it's no use if I have to translate it to English - I would make it looks like text written by elementary school kid. :( So I have to be satisfied with reading fanfics of others and search if someone changed ideas similar to mine into a real fanfic. But to be completely honest, the fact is, I HAD written couple oneshots in English but there is no way to convince me to publish any of them without them being checked out by a Beta - which I don't have any idea how to look for. So yeah. Back to the part of not posting anything.
I have a lot of fanfic in my fav list, have I not? Amount I've read can't be compared to that. But I only add to my list stories I truly enjoyed. So if you found your story among many others on my list it really means something. ;)
But I have to warn you. If you a drama-lover who has no taste when writing violent things, your writing style is simply pathetic and full of anger - generally fanfics that should have never been written, I'm also gonna comment it! It doesn't happen very often coz people usually have some common sense but there ARE hopeless cases that cannot be left uncommented. It is completely beyond me how so many people may believe that by writing a lot of angst they can make their fanfics look better.
Let me remind you what Rules & Guidelines states:
Respect the reviewers. Not all reviews will strictly praise the work. If someone rightfully criticizes a portion of the writing, take it as a compliment that the reviewer has opted to spend his/her valuable time to help improve your writing.
So please, stop yourself from writing charming messages along the lines of: "Don't like it then don't read it!". Or: "I have many fans so I don't give a crap about your opinion!!" Do you know what kind of person that makes a writer like that to be? If someone hates critic so badly, a writer shouldn't publish a fanfic anywhere and just enjoy it on her/his own PC instead of offending a person who is giving her honest opinion. And I'm seriously not a person who don't "give a crap" herself which means I'm trying my best even in my negative reviews.
What next... Honestly speaking I love smut. The site I'm reading fanfics doesn't really matter. I always check M or NC-17 rated fanfics first. I admit it honestly. I'm not a pervert or anything like that. I simply think a story should have everything in it - just like in a real life. I hate when great writers just cut their lemons. They do it for two reasons. They don't feel okay writing a full-blown lemon or are simply embarrassed. It is also possible they are afraid this site will delete their story. First reason I can easily understand and fully respect but let me tell you, I had already met more that couple writers who were afraid of writing anything else than a peck between a couple, I encouraged them and they turned out to be damn good - even better than many lemon/smut-lover writers. ;) When it comes to the second reason, I will say it in that way:
Fanfiction.net is my favourite site with fanfics but it gets terribly on my nerves when a writer writes censured version of her M Rated fanfic and expects from us to look for her profile somewhere else just to read the whole story. What for? I mean, right now everyone can find much worse things on the net than a little lemon written by a fan. Is there really a reason to make it hard for readers by forcing writers to censure their stories? I highly doubt it. Not to mention most of their blog sites are even hard to find. I had to drop some stories only because i couldn't stand censored version and even though I had spent my time sometimes looking for their author site, I couldn't success - most writers didn't answer when I asked them to help me and the others were just like "Oh, but it's easy to find.". If it was so easy to find, I would have not bothered anyone, now, would I? Such attitude will not help to gain popularity and will not attract readers. Understand what I'm saying? There would not be any problem at all if writers did not feel the need to censor it in the first place.
Okay, I'm staring to grumble... Backing to the main subject, I do love lemon in fanfics and can appreciate a really good one when I see it. Unfortunately really talented writers avoid writing lemons and those who love them usually drop their great stories sooner or later - the more they promise they will continue the worse. And talentless ones who lack skills will write more and more which makes me wonder what is encouraging them. But you will not find them amount my fav stories so let's just forget about this problem.
Couple things about my favs coz I think it's the best place to write them:
I promised myself to write down all heroes, heroines, pairings, etc. I like. Well, it has been 5 years (if not more) since that time. You know what they say: better later than never. I can't remember all of them coz there were just too many - I'm gonna add here every single name that will come up to my mind. Some of the names are quite old but I still like them and I like reading fanfic about them. (I just wish this site offered something called ENTER between next paragraphs...)

2. Hikaru no Go
Shūsuke Fuji (Tennis no Ouji-sama);

Couple things I found on the net and couldn't stop myself from coping them here:
The Seme's Handbook
(by Dangerous Pleasure scanlation group)
1. If you can't make your uke come just by licking his ass, you suck in bed.
2.Semes will hardly ever have sex completely naked. That's an uke thing.
3. Rape = love. The more you love your uke, the more right you have to rape him.
4. You can forgive your uke for anything. It will either lead to sex (of a make-up variety) or more sex (as punishment). Either way, you win.
5. Smexing your uke with his glasses on is the ultimate goal. If the uke takes off his glasses before/while you smex him, you have failed.
6. Semes hardly ever sweat during sex. Ukes, on the other hand, produce copious amounts of fluids of varying origins.
7. Never let your uke do any work! It's the uke's job to lie on the bed, it's YOUR job to make him feel good all night. (If your uke hasn't come at least five times, you're doing it wrong.)
8. It's perfectly normal to be able to pin a grown man to the wall using only one hand to grip his wrists.
9. Ropes materialize out of thin air. (...) If you got your uke under you, you can just pull a rope from the sub-space to tie him up.
(by Dangerous Pleasure scanlation group)
1. Everybody in the entire world has gay inclinations.
2. Doctors always do perverted things to their patients.
3. Don't trust guys in uniforms, whether they're high school, military or police.
4. Do not pick up any "strays".
5. Your first love LASTS FOREVER.
6. If you're an uke, you are destined to blush. A lot.
7. Women are just pretty office ornaments.
8. It's impossible to "switch it up".
9. The cure to everything is sex (=rape) .
10. 90 of the male population from 10-40 is gay. The remaining 10 still hasn't come out.
When you were 5, your mom gave you a ice cream cone. You thank her by yelling at her that it's the wrong kind.
When you were 9, your mom drove you from swimming class to soccer and one birthday party to another. You thanked her by slamming the door and never looking back.
When you were 10, your mom payed for piano classes. You thanked her by never coming to class.
When you were 12, your mom was waiting for a very important call. You thanked her by talking on the phone all night.
When you were 14, your mom payed for a month away at summer camp. You thanked her by not bothering to write a single letter.
When you were 16, your mom taught you how to drive her car. You thanked her by taking it every chance you got.
When you were 17, your mom drove you to the mall and gave you her credit card. You thanked her by maxing it out.
When you were 18, your mom cried at your high school graduation. You thanked her by partying until dawn.
When you were 20, your mom drove you to collage. You thanked her by saying good-bye to her outside the dorm so you wouldn't have to say bye in front of your friends.
When you were 26, your mom payed for your wedding. You thanked her by moving halfway across the world.
When you were 30, your mom fell ill and needed you to take care of her. You thanked her by reading about the burden parents became to children.
Then, one day, she quietly died and everything you did came crashing down on you.
If YOU love your mom, re-post this and if you don't, you won't care if your mom dies, will you?
