Poll: Is "Extra Credit" fine as is, should I add another chapter to make the ending clearer, or should I treat the (current) final chapter as the starting point for a long process, meaning that I'd add 3-5 more chapters? Vote Now!

Welcome to my profile page! If you're here, then you're either lost, or you're interested in my writing. If it's the former, just hit the "back" arrow on your browser. If not, then I'm thrilled.
Part 1: Reviews
Anyone who has ever received a PM from me knows that I'm insecure and narcissistic to the point of insanity. This is most evident in my addiction to reviews. I love getting feedback because it means a) someone's reading my stuff, and b) they took the time to think of some comments. With that in mind, if you should inexplicably decide to spend time on writing a review, I have ground rules:
1. Keep it negative.
I think everyone will agree that negative reviews are more fun than positive ones, and I'm the first to admit that my writing needs work. Therefore, if you want to criticize me, go ahead! I'd prefer it if it were constructive, but I can appreciate a good tirade, providing it's really, really well-written, clever, and/or witty. After all, it's ridiculous to assume that the majority of people like my writing, and it's important that reviews reflect opinion.
I hate spelling and grammatical errors. All of my pet peeves are lingual. Therefore, if you see a tiny, insignificant flaw it is inexcusable. Feel free to tear me a new one. This can be done in PM form, too, but I don't mind if it's not.
3. Vagaries need examples.
I have no problem with comments like, "she seems rude," but I'd like you to tell me why you think that, or point to a line that gives an example.
4. Don't be polite.
Arguably, this can be part of Rule 1, but I think that it needs to be underlined. It may seem that if you have something negative to say, it's best to phrase it in a positive way, or start with an explanation of why you really like it. It's confusing, it undermines the criticism, and I cannot be offended. Please, to quote Divergent, "Politeness is just deception in pretty packaging." (I didn't check that. If it's wrong and you know it, please tell me.)
Part 2: Upcoming Projects
As should be obvious, I'm currently working on one story. I have some ideas I'm toying with. It should be noted that unless I explicitly say so, there is no slash. If anyone wants to see any of these, please PM me:
- More Montmorency. My current one is possibly the first of several (I can't believe there's only one other than mine so far). I'm really into h/c, and Montmorency offers a lot of opportunity for that. I'm torn between doing something on Scarper (Montmorency, not Frank), and getting into Dr. Farcett's mental illness (possibly in relapse form).
- More Justice League stuff (both from the comics and from the few mentions of them in BTBAB). Like I've said, I'm really into the whole "sad clown" angle where Plastic Man is concerned, and the hints of abuse in JLA 65# seem to support me. I've been thinking about it for months, and I have some pretty elaborate backstories in mind.
- More Batman: The Animated Series stuff.
Part 3: Current Projects
I'm writing one story at the moment. Note: If I'm working on more than one, you have a favorite, and I'm not updating quickly enough, please PM me. It takes me twenty minutes per chapter, tops. The only reason I don't update more is that I'm burned out when I get home.
Part 4: Other/Causes
PLEASE READ WHAT'S UNDER THIS!
I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.
I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.
I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.
We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.
I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.
I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.
I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.
I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.
We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.
I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.
I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.
I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.
I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.
I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.
I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I did not have to always deal with society hating me.
I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.
I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.
I am the person who is afraid of telling his loving Christian parents he loves another male.
