Stories in Progress

Harbinger: Sequel to the AU Forlorn collaborated on by tigerowl and Isumo1489: Forlorn

It may not be so great, Naruto thinks; that big shinobi career. His friends have intonated that sentiment as well. For example, despite Haku’s concerted efforts to locate and connect with his long lost clan and Hyoton-kin, he is probably going to find out he was meant to be their janitor or something. Gaara is Kazekage now, Naruto also notes, but Gaara said there’s no glamour in 10 straight hours of paperwork a day. The eye-bags are getting worse, his friend claims. Jiraiya is confident they can all be Kage someday. That is, Naruto kindly reminds him, if they can survive the Akatsuki’s next visit.

(Forlorn and Harbinger comprise stories 1 and 2 of the "Three Mandalas" series)

The Ocean in a Teacup: AU centered on the Seven Shinobi Swordsmen

[Haku sat down at the table with his stack of books and watched as Zabuza mechanically put away the foodstuffs, "Is it true that a shinobi made the moon?"

Zabuza paused and turned slowly to look at the boy. They locked gazes for a moment before he replied, "I can honestly say I have no idea."

Haku held open the page he had read that had an illustration to go along with it. The silhouette of a sage was depicted and Haku tapped it with his finger, "This says Rikudō Sennin made the moon. He did it to seal away a great evil."]

'Teacup' fanart is here: A Gentle Heart at War

Readers, fandom supporters, and passers-by:

This will be a sort of public proposal catalyzed by commentary given to me and also to some friends who have shared their experiences.

If, while reading a fanfic or work that anyone has written and posted (and is not profiting from,) my own included, please: do not post criticism in reviews. Should your intent to criticize be purely constructive and helpful in nature, please DO contact the author in a PM. Ask the author if s/he is seeking criticism, or at the very least be as polite as possible while communicating what you think can be improved.

Simply put, when a reader leaves scathing, degrading comments in an author’s reviews section, it is humiliating. It is disrespectful of the author and those that (quite possibly) reacted positively to the fanfic that you want to critique. This is NOT a denial of the critic’s opinion or honesty mattering in any sense, nor does it suggest the author gives a fcuk about what a critic thinks. But fans of fan fiction should try to participate in the community with as much empathy as they would expect in return. It is all too easy to hide behind anonymous guest posts and faceless accounts to wound others and not face any consequences. Such behavior is not commendable within fan fiction spheres that, fundamentally, seek to promote and celebrate whatever it is the critic and thousands of others enjoy reading about. Subtract the negativity wherever and whenever possible.

PM the author to share your thoughts if you suspect your comment will have a negative association. There’s no use in hiding behind the cliche concept of “sticks and stones”: words can and do hurt.

I would not advise any of this to others if I did not authentically comport myself this way in the fan fiction community. Poor feedback does indeed demotivate fanfic authors, inspire writers to abandon stories, or just make a person feel stupid or talentless in general. No, a critic who feels justified in his/her commentary does not have to agree with the aforementioned suggestion. The critic does not even have to abide by or attempt to PM someone they seek to criticize, ridicule, flame, etc. in a review. But a critic does have to acknowledge that his or her feelings and thoughts matter no more or less than those of the author’s. Consider the other person's feelings if you review in this manner, and do not assume your own personal reaction of "shrugging things off" is how others will react. Manners maketh man.

In Good Company by fool.0 reviews
This will sound a little ridiculous, no matter how Sasuke phrases it. "I see dead people" is embarrassingly tacky, and "I'm half-spirit" seems like something Sakura might say when she's stoned sky high. So he settles for a shrug.
