I am me.
I'm a 26 year old otaku gamer-geek girl obsessed with anime and SciFi.
Above all I have become desperately hooked on the Oreimo series ("My Little Sister Can't Be This Cute"). It captured my heart and I've found myself watching the anime over and over. I really hate how few Oreimo fanfics their are, I've tried writing a few myself but nothing satisfies me once completed so far. I wish it were possible to compensate people for their work on fanfics because I'd gladly pay for the chance to read them. Too bad it's not allowed.
I'm also into Bleach, Kekkaishi, Cowboy Bebop, FMA:B, GITS, Blood, Blue Exorcist, Initial-D, Mouse: Stealing Temptation, and several other series.
One of my biggest problems is that I am a very fast reader, I can pound through a 300 page novel in one day with ease. Over 3 days I recently read over 120 fanfics on here. So my constant search for FanFic is hard to satisfy.
1.) Bleach - What the heck is with the obsession people have lately of partnering poor Orihime with all manner of freakish and creepy hollows? I mean yeah I get that people don't like her but some of the stuff I've seen is just stomach-churningly unsettling. People need to resolve their issues without sacrificing a sweet girl. She doesn't need to be violated by dark entities. SEESH.
2.) Bleach - Why is everyone in a rush to send Ichigo to the Soul Society forever and stick him with a captaincy and paperwork? Let the poor boy LIVE while he's alive... he has thousands of years to be an uptight Soul Reaper and rise up through the ranks. He has a family and friends who love him and need his grumpy ass.
3.) Bleach - It doesn't make sense to make Ichigo a Captain right off the bat... sure he has power... but that makes him more of a go-to operative than CAPTAIN-material. Captains need to manage and lead their forces. And Captains need to really understand their units and the soul society. That requires years of training and familiarity. Ichigo's a power-brawler, not a leader of men. If you're gonna give him a command give him command of the unit stationed in the world of the Living, that would at least make sense.
4.) Initial-D - Why are ALL of the Initial-D stories man-on-man love? I mean we all love a little boytoy action, but come on isn't there a single hetero pairing possible from that series?
Greetings to the fine folk that moderate our site.
Myself, along with many, have been writing and posting on your fine site for years now, some of the better examples of up and coming writers out there are now suddenly finding some of the stories we've come to love at risk of being removed without the chance to even rectify our errors.
It's quite easy to simply add an MA rating, additional filters or even a simple requirement for a free membership to read the stories presented here, and would cut down on hateful anonymous reviews and posts at the same time, so I have to question as to why such a thing, in all this time, simply wasn't added.
If you're worried about falsification of a registration then have an appropriate disclaimer and then there can be no dispute, you took your steps and the PARENTS didn't monitor their children, if that is even your concern. If it is more of a personal view or desire then please at least let people know and give them a chance to remove a story that you and yours find offensive, most people on the site are actually rather cordial when it comes to such requests.
While I cannot say for sure if this letter will even reach those that may be willing to listen, of if it's more akin to a wide spectrum purge in preparation for something bigger, please understand that you are going to be looseing a LARGE number of your writers, and thus your income from a lack of readers if there is not some level of action taken to help with this situation.
