Call me Noose. I'm a stickler for spelling, punctuation, and all those other hoity-toity things. If I review your story, it's either to praise you to high heavens or give you blunt criticism. I like like the smell of honeysuckle and jack-fruit, the squishy feel of sinking into sand, blowing bubbles, the smell of burning paper, and hedgehog-shaped pencil-sharpeners.
I'm the sort of person that loves something and then try to make it better; this is why I do fanfiction, I love the original story so much, I'll sit and think of all the ways it could be made even more interesting to me. I do this for fanfics by other authors as well. I don't appreciate being accused of plagarism, especially when I have it clearly stated that my stories are based off other fics and WILL contain recognizable content. It's stated clearly in the summaries and the disclaimers as well; it is NOT my fault if you are apparently too illiterate to even understand a story blurb.
That being said, if the fact that I'm ficcing another fic is so abhorrent to you, just send me a PM – that's right, grow a pair and let me know who you are – and I will remove whichever story it is that is just too offensive to exist on the Internet personally. No need to go tattling to the Admins. I have other things to do than to put up with hipsters that are so into their originals – poor grammar and strange story flow included – that they can't give a girl trying to make it easier to read a little appreciation.
I DO NOT WRITE SLASH.
Let's just get that out in the open right now. I've gotten comments about being concerned that my stories will turn out as slash/femslash or that they should. Do not fear and sorry to disappoint but any relationships that take centre stage will be het. I like reading slash myself but I don't write it.
I have no problems with same-gender relationships, I just don't write about them because I know I won't get how they actually work correct. I know that who's top/bottom doesn't always stay the same and that there's no 'wo/man' in the relationships, but I'm not going to write about something that should be realistic like a relationship when I have no practical experience with it myself. I'm an asexual female that's dated one guy for maybe a year before deciding that I didn't care for being with anyone; I don't understand romantic attachment, especially from a different gender's point of view. I am literally not physically capable.
"Why do you make Harry a girl if you won't put her in a relationship?"
This is more of what I was talking about practical experience. I'm a girl; I know how girls think and behave. The beauty of Rowling's characterisation of Harry Potter is that he could easily be turned into a girl with only a few small changes. The only parts where Harry's distinctly male is when he's dealing with crushes on girls, and even then it's like he's just going through the motions; he could easily homosexual. Because I prefer writing from a female point of view, Harry changes into a girl for the sake of convenience.
Unless my story starts out with him initially being a boy, Harry being a girl is not a plot device. I don't want to get any more comments telling me that unless I stick Harry with a guy or have her do something exclusively female, my making Harry a girl is pointless. How many stories are out there with Harry having his name changed to something like Hadrian, or more lordships than he has fingers and toes to count on and the story has nothing to do with those things? Don't give me any crap just because I don't cling to gender-identity like you do.
