Made by the wonderful Haikari Aijuntani!
About my writing:- a) I do NOT respond to anonymous criticism on my stories, if you have an opinion I suggest you come and talk to me without hiding behind the mask of anonymity
b) I am Indian, and we have have learned British English, if anyone has an issue with my spellings please look up the British spellings. I cannot change my style of writing just because a few people feel that American English is better than British English, I will use what I was brought up with.
c) I have received a lot of hate here for being Indian and I will not respond to any derogatory racial remarks made within the freedom of the anon review application.
For All the Newbies on Fanfiction I thought I'd help you out with the terms :) You are welcome to message me if you don't understand :) (This is copied from Fangedfour.com)
AU - This means alternate universe. This can be literal Alternate Universes shown in Canon, or it can mean AU in the sense that a writer is taking a canon episode of a T.V show, a book's plotline, a movies plotline and changing it. So basically AU doesn't always mean far from canon, but it can mean way outside of canon too. Some are silly while some are pretty nice.
Beta - A Beta reader is a writer's best friend, and sometimes their biggest foil. The Beta of the fanfic world is like the editor in the real world. They check grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc., but also they check canon, plot flow, characterization, and many other aspects that distinguish great fiction from so-so fiction. The beauty of the fanfiction world is that most writers are feedback whores and anyone can take on the role of Beta. If you notice a lot of errors when reading fiction maybe you should consider offering to be a beta at one of your favorite sites, the writers will thank you for a fresh voice and you, the reader, can play an active role in your obsession.
Canon - Canon is a term used to describe things that have actually happened on the shows or been specifically referred to as having happened in the past. Like Ron X Hermione in Harry Potter or The actual events of the Hunger Games without anything changed.
Flames - Flames are the opposite of helpful feedback. It means sending an email to an author to tell them you disliked the story you just read. Common examples are people who can't stand slash, yet read a slash story in its entirety then email the author to tell them they hate slash. Well, here's a thought, if you know you won't like it, don't read it. Remember there is a difference between saying 'you may not know it but you spelled bestiality wrong.' and saying 'if you can't spell it you shouldn't be doing it, dumb ass'. While I realize the latter is more tempting be polite, authors have memories like really well superglued traps, they won't forget your flame and will probably even send back a snarky response if you send them one.
Non-Canon - Is just the opposite of above. Relationships that have never been shown, spoken of, or hinted at on the shows are non-canon, as are the many great liberties taken with character histories. Like Dramione or Blaise and Luna.
OTP - One True Pairing - A term that originated on Live Journal, means the two characters that make your heart pitter patter. Usually refers to a romantic pairing such as Draco X Hermione for me and Cato X Katniss
PWP - Porn without Plot. This is a small, usually short, often funny, tale of smut, with either no or very little lead in. Like Knock Knock. Hello. Wanna shag. Okay. 1-2-3-fingers. Done. Bye. See you next week. 'Kay. Finis. Satisfied? Me either.
Ratings - The ratings system on this page loosely follows American movie ratings and are as follows: G- all ages, PG- some intimacy, mild language, PG-13-fleshy touching, strong language, R- actual nudity, sex, course language, NC-17- graphic sex with excessive detail, rape, torture, etc.
Shipper - Someone who has an affinity for a specific pairing or relationship, whether conventional or non. I ship Draco Malfoy X Hermione Granger, Cato X Katniss, Damon X Elena.
Slash - Slash means any same-sex pairing. FemSlash is Woman X Woman
Songfic - A story with song lyrics woven into a story, can also include stories inspired by a particular song. The basic thing to remember when writing songfic is that if your story can not stand without the song lyrics it will most likely not be better with them. Always take a good look at the piece without the lyrics to make sure you have written a cohesive story that can be enjoyed even if the reader has never heard the song you have in mind.
Guys I have noticed that very few people review, so there is something here that I want every reader to have a look at.
Another wonderful author; Swerley says, "Please Review! I've noticed many people have stories saved in their favorites and/or in their story alerts, but hardly anyone is bothering to leave a review. The whole point of an author posting a story is so that they can know how it is being received. Authors on this site work for readers' reviews. We don't get paid. If you're reading, the least you can do for an author is to leave a brief message so we know if you like what we're doing or not. Keep it in mind when the story you've been following all of a sudden stops getting updated. Authors get frustrated and discouraged at the lack of reviews. They take it as criticism, whether they should or not. Many will choose to move their work to a moderated site with readers who are more conscientious. Do the right thing – if you like someone's work, you should tell them so!"
