To everyone who writes Fan-fiction, THANK YOU for all your hard work and for sharing your story’s with us all, please keep up the good work.
I love books and story's and my friends joke that I am trying to create L-Space in my small house, I read mostly for fun, I mostly read science fiction, fantasy and some horror, so this is why I like fan fiction. I think the best stories, are those that keep you up, way past your bed time, story which you lose yourself in, stories which you do not want to end.
There is an old saying, you can please some of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time (and reviews are like that) I like good story’s, and having read so many book over the years, I would hope by now, I would know what makes a good story.
You can tell a good story from the story teller’s hard work, and people who write fan fiction love to write, so my advice to you as a writer is write for yourself and the joy of writing, and remember to ignore a review that flame for no good reason.
As a reviewer, I will always try to be fair to you and your story, As I do understand the hard work you put into your work, as I find writing so very hard myself, so if you wish to ask me about the review that I have given you, please send me a message and I will get back to you.
For those who story I am reading and taking interest in I tend to bookmark them in Firefox as this lets me track which chapter I am on.
I know some times Fan fiction story are not finished, I know this happens, so I would ask you if you are not going to finish a story to tell us all in the story summary
Fishing for reviews I dislike this, ex-specially I not going to write any more of this story on less I get X reviews, grow up so on principle, I will not review your story if you do this
At the end of the day, write for yourself, and as long as you are enjoy writing your stories you cannot go wrong with them, because of the fun you have writing them and the joy you have in creating them, will come across in your work and your words and this to me is what make a good story teller because the reader hears and see this in the words that you have written and the stories you tell and then the reader will review

Project Gutenberg: web link http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Main_Page if you are a book person like me, you might like to check this out, it’s a great place for research and also to find books that are out of print and it also free.
The Baen Library is a website that offers free books of many different authors from the Baen Publishing house. This is a good place to read books to see if you like some authors works before going out and paying for them. Link http://www.baen.com/library/ or http://www.baen.com/ and go to free library
Problems with the Ratings on your story and then having your story's taken down, yes it a pain all round.
So an idea to help.
This is because fan-fiction net has legal issues with the type of content (as it is available world wide) that can be posted, as a host it has legal liability.
This is why the rating caps out at teen, the best way round this, is to create your own YAHOO GROUP and then LINK this group to your account Fan-fiction net profile page.
This way, you get to write and publish the story you wish, the way you wish to write it, but remember if it adult rated story say so and then write a disclaimer i.e. do not read if under X age. You then can also post a PG or Teen friendly version on fan-fiction net as well.
Things to help out
Example: Something I found that I thought might help with those who write fan-fiction base on Misty Lackey Valdemar story’s, Search (type in) Wikipedia Velgarth or type in link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Velgarth, There is a lot of back ground information about Valdemar at this location.
Finding names for characters in your stories.
A good place to find a name when you need one is, use a Search Engine and then type in Baby Names or Fantasy name generator and good example of a can be found at is http: // www. Baby names. com / (without spaces) and this generator also gives the meaning of the name.
There is a writer, no an Author call James Galloway (aka Fel) who releases his stories, on the internet. They vary in genres and including fantasy and sci-fi. his story are good, very good, if there were published as books I would find space for them on my book cases, Fel's stories are well thought out and well written the strength of his work is that Fel is a story teller you will lose yourself in his words and worlds and Fel story's will keep you up way past your bed time.
Fel's work it can be found at http://www.weavespinner.net/Worlds_of_Fel.htm
Christopher Nuttall is a Author and also a fan-fiction writer, who publish his work on the net, his books and story's are well worth reading and can be found at http://www.chrishanger.net/Index.html his early works are free to read and are very well written these books are a mix of Alternate History/Cross-Time Travel, science fictions and some fantasy go take a look you will not be disappointed.
