avid fanfiction reader. sadly i don't have any writing genes in my bones. i bow before everyone of you lovely courageous writers. because of you i can satify my imagination of the "what if's"
i try to live by the rule i've set for myself which is to review every story i've read/added to my favorites, not only telling the writers i loved/liked it but also why. i believe it's only fair to do this because if someone has taken the time and trouble to write a story for you to read why not take the time and trouble to let them know how much you appreciate their stories.
i know it's not possible to love/like every fic that you read but constructive critism can actually be a good thing, as long as you're gentle with it.
i also know i haven't reviewed every story that's on my favorite/alert list but that's because
a) RL is a b* and is demanding my time too
b) i can't really get my thoughts sorted out to leave a proper review. the story is mostly so well written that i don't think 'wow' 'love it' would be enough to convey my thoughts and love for the story i've just read. i need to take time away from the fic and often need to read it once more before i know what i want to say. as i mentioned before, writing isn't really my forte.
c) english isn't my native language. some stories really pull me in that i'm not able to convey my feelings and thoughts in proper english.
currently i'm (like many many writers out here) i'm obsessed with x-men first class, more specifically the dynamic and charismatic lovely duo charles xavier and erik lehnsherr or james mcavoy and michael fassbender. they are perfect together. i really really hoped at the end of the movie one of them would be able to convince the other to join their side even though i already knew what the outcome would be. i wil watch a second, third, fourth, i don't care how many installment of x-men as long as this two are also in the movie too and get some screen time together, preferably some screen time where we can see them easily interacting with each other like when they were recruiting.
until then i'll read as many fanfiction as i can about this two and stalk my favorite writers for update or another story :)
