Poll: What should my next controversial story be about? Vote Now!
Author has written 3 stories for Shugo Chara!.
Greetings and Salutations, annoyed reader. Or, that's what I'm assuming you are. I am ControversiaLucy, or Lucy Lynne. It is a pleasure to meet you. I write more controversial fan-fics, but I try to do them tastefully. So many people read lemons because, if done correctly, they appeal to something special (I'll call it) in a reader. I prefer to stay clear of such stories, but that doesn't mean I'm avoiding the controversial types. What, exactly, is a controversial story? Well, the Merriam/Webster Dictionary describes "controversy" as a discussion marked especially by the expression of opposing views.
So a controversial story could potentially be about such topics as abortion, religion, politics, etc. These are the types of stories I hope to do.
Now maybe you're thinking "Lucy... what is wrong with you? You'll get a bunch of people flaming your stories purely because they don't agree with your views!" Well that's wonderful for them. I can't say I have a problem with it because, in the same situation, I might react the same way as them. When you are passionate about abortion, whether for or against, you will stand up for your beliefs if they are challenged in a story. I accept this, I embrace it. They have every right to inform me of their opinion and to completely ignore my story. I formally invite them to message me and we'll have a quick discussion about it. You might be surprised what my views are ;)
Currently, I have three stories out. Two are chapters, the other a one-shot. I'm really quite pleased with the progress I am Strong is making and I hope people enjoy Devotion. The Unfortunate execution of Utau Hoshina is a little darker than I usually write, but I think people will enjoy it because it's so different. And, of course, it will have more plot-twists than I've ever included in a story before. If any of you have some tips for my writing, I'd be glad to hear them. I'm always eager to improve.
I haven't decided what my next story will be about. There's a poll (if you're interested) at the top of my profile that may help me decide.
Reviews mean a lot to people, which is why I strive to really review their stories. Sometimes they get upset with my honesty, other times they are grateful. But whenever I write a review for a particularly bad story, or just one that needs a lot of criticism, I include this:
Generally, people will read this at the bottom and realize that I'm not trying to be cruel, I'm genuinely just trying to help them.
While I'm talking about controversial topics, I feel I should say something about the petition going around the site. The quick way would be "stfu" but the right way would be "you guys are wrong."
I have seen countless petitions in stories, reviews, profiles, etc. Guys, this is THEIR website. They regulate what is acceptable and what is not. If you don't like their rules, then leave. It's not like they just instated this rule and you're all upset. This has been in place since 2002! And by the way, not EVERY story has the things that are being banned. It's ridiculous that I read someones review with the petition that said "so basically like every story on this site."
I'm really, really upset about this guys. You follow the rules or get off their website. If your story is going to be deleted, get rid of the parts that would get it deleted. Seriously.
On my Tadamu story "Devotion" I received two "flames." One delightful young lady by the annonymous name of Marie respectfully told me to die, probably because she doesn't like Tadamu. I don't really know because she didn't say anything else.
The second person... well, this "D" girl's stupidity is so laughable! She gave it two reviews. The first one was her saying "CENSORED Yeah!" because all she did was read the title/summary. Once she realized she had made a mistake she wrote another review which... I don't know... I just can't stop laughing at the foolishness! Tadase was "cute" and Ikuto was "hot"? Well, of course! Tadase hadn't hit puberty yet! She said some other foolish things and I'm so very amused.
"D", if you're reading this, that was not a very smart thing of you to do. Logically, your reasoning was errored. Not to mention you're just wrong. Sorry, hun. I hope you don't mind me singling you out.
I'm very tired of seeing these SC! Fanfictions in which Tadase is the cheating boyfriend, Amu is brokenhearted, and Ikuto is the one to make her happy again. Let's think about Tadase for a moment; does he seem like the cheating type? I know everyone just wants Amu to be down and Ikuto to be her savior and bring her back up but there are other ways to do that! For example, if you absolutely must use Tadase, he doesn't have to cheat on her. He can just say he wants to break up. There's your brokenhearted Amu and your IC Tadase. You're welcome.
I am so, so, so excited! For the past month I've been thinking, "Why do they show you the number of reviews? Reviews aren't very important. They should show who favorites and follows a story, that would really tell the tale of how good it is! Not to mention you can't anonymously favorite a story, so it works out well! Thank you, staff! I've been looking forward to this!
I'm always happy to receive messages. Usually they are in response to my reviews, but I'm not afraid to chat.
