Three Ways to Tell if You're Obsessed With Something:
1. Your stomach is in knots whenever you think about it.
2. You can't stop thinking about whatever you're obsessed with for more than fifteen minutes.
3. You're reading on how to tell if you're obsessed with something. :) Gotcha!
Favorite Quotes from FanFiction Authors:
I write with the freedom I cannot speak. -- Simone Robinson.
I look down on misguided, self-righteous people. It's amusing. -- Simone Robinson.
Nothing is sweeter than writing a sentient mind into the slow, decaying descent to insanity. -- Simone Robinson
One day you'll look back and ask: What have I done? But no one will be there to answer. -- Simone Robinson
If I throw away your computer and tell you that you must now write on scraps of paper and serviettes that you find lying around. That you have to type everything out using only your phone and then sit for hours and hours to send anything through, would you still write? If you say yes, then you have the soul of a true writer, if not, go home. -- Simone Robinson
I'm not a complete idiot. Some parts are missing. -- i-am-turk-fear-me
Heck is the place for people who don't believe in Gosh. -- i-am-turk-fear-me
Don't tell me the sky's the limit when there are footprints on the moon. -- i-am-turk-fear-me
'I love you' is eight letters. And so is 'bullshit'. -- i-am-turk-fear-me
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it. -- i-am-turk-fear-me
I'm afraid that it will be consigned to writer's-block hell for all eternity. -- IronAmerica
"For me, starting out so young, fanfic became my English teacher, my sex-ed class, my favorite hobby, and the source of some of my dearest friends. It also provided me with a crash course in social justice and how to respect and celebrate diversity, both of characters and fic writers." -- Kelli Joyce.
"Sarcasm is just wisdom for the hyper-aware." -- David Collison.
"Writing is the soul's escape door. Don't be afraid to walk through it :)." -- Becky Oakey.
"I like this character. I wonder what they'd look like beat up and crying." -- Tumblr post
LAW OF CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT
Here, as one brilliantly gifted user (check out minnichi on this site) so beautifully put it in an "official" review (this is from another site, mind you). The sections emboldened are the parts that you should pay attention to.
"I tried my best to be fair in this section, and I've examined each of your characters closely. As of now, they have...little to no development. Development starts with a personality, which grows into unique flaws in each individual that they must learn from as the story progresses. Your story consists of so much dialogue that I can't sense much of a personality from anyone at the moment. There's a complete lack of inner reflection, one of the keys of personality. That can sometimes be fixed within the dialogue, but what they say as of now still doesn't contribute much to character. I know that [omit] does start to change later on regarding her views about [omit], but character development is much more than just stating that it happens. We're not shown these actual changes, nor are there any traces of emotion to pick up from. Your characters are hindered most by the simplistic, sometimes unrelated dialogue, and you have to gear the story to show us what goes on in their heads. I see great effort in some areas, but they lack basis. You must develop the personality before you can believably tell us why someone is sad, for instance. Naming emotions right now doesn't create the connection it needs to the characters, and as of now this [fanfiction] really needs to pick up on that. They are great characters waiting to be heard! I know you can do it."
The 21 Fanfiction Commandments
1. Thou shalt not intentionally write crappy fanfiction.
2. Thou shalt not publish fanfiction unless thy or thine beta knows the difference between their, they’re, there, and the air.
3. Thou shalt not review thine own fanfiction, whether thou dost so anonymously or logged in to thine account. If thou wish to speak to a reviewer, send thine reviewer a PM.
4. Thou shalt not behave like a brat if thine fanfic receives constructive criticism, even if it be harsh.
5. Thou shalt not write a self-insert character who becomes the love interest of the main character in the series for which thou art writing.
6. Thou shalt learn to be humble while receiving both praise and critique
7. Thou shalt not create false profiles to review thine own stories for the sake of raising the review count.
8. Thou shalt not place thy fanfiction up for public viewing whilst demanding that only positive reviews be left.
9. Thou shalt not plagiarize any author’s work.
10. Thy lemons shall be properly grown, being both anatomically accurate and physically possible.
11. Thou shalt not withhold a chapter from thy story because thy story is not getting reviews.
12. Thou shalt not try to start a flame war with people who leave constructive criticism.

14. Thou shalt know the difference between a flame and a review full of constructive criticism.
15. Thou shalt permanently remove any plagiarized stories the first time after thou hast been caught posting them.
16. Thou shall spell the names of canon characters correctly. If thou dost not know how to spell the name of a canon character, thou shalt consult Google, Wikipedia, or the character selection bar in the filter tab for thy fandom’s fanfiction.
17. Thou shalt not change the names of canon characters if thou country’s dub did not change them.
18. If thou must write a story involving pregnancy that is not a parody, thou must depict pregnancy accurately.
19. Thou must understand the meaning of parody and satire.
20. If writing a fanfiction that is not in thine native language, thou shalt get help from a beta who is fluent in that language.
21. If thou shalt break any of these commandments, may thine payoff be worth it, for there art no rules in art but that thou art be good.
However, AlmightyGodAbove and Satan of Hell may leave thou some interesting reviews if thou break more than five of these commandments.

Best Fanfiction Disclaimer Ever:
I found this on TVtropes and thought it was amazing. Whoever wrote it did an awesome job, so I had to add it to my profile.
Sing, O Muse, or speak, or dance,
and so your audience entrance:
For voice, or step, or gilded phrase -
each art shall mortal minds amaze.
But Muse, ensure whatever work
is safe from harmful law and clerk,
the legal hounds who howl at we
who honor creativity.
Who honors more an artist's skill?
The fan who will the soul distill
from artistry, and so conceive
new tales from what that art achieved?
Or one who simply reads a book
and even if their heart is hooked,
tells none, nor lets their minds be swept
to lands where untouched tales are kept?
But yet let needful words be said,
which still I treat with grief and dread:
I own the narration within,
but not the world it happens in.
It isn't hard to separate
my words from those I emulate.
What's mine is mine, what's not is not,
I lay no claim to other plots.
So guard, Calliope, and Sing!
The humble words which I might bring
would in your speech flourish and thrive,
in ways I could scarcely contrive.
And reader, if you would allow
just one more moment, here and now
to introduce my nascent glory —
Sit back, relax, enjoy the story!
