I've got a new forum up, called fan-fiction pet-peeves. The title is self-explanatory, if you have a fan-fiction pet-peeve, post it here:
The pet-peeves posted the most will be posted on a list that I plan to put as Universal Rules of Writing Fan-fiction. Hopefully, this could a long way toward helping rid the fanfiction world of bad fan-fiction.
Likes - Well-written, original fan-fiction stories/anime/manga/movies/video games, where character & plot development are a focal point. Music of numerous genre (rap, r&b, rock, J-pop, and anything with a good beat and profound lyrics), and sports such as basketball (mainly pro), American football (both college & pro), billiards, bowling, swimming and tennis. I'm also a BIG hentai fan, though I do NOT dig on all forms of hentai (looking at you tentacle & NTR stories).
Dislikes - corny (AKA poorly written) movies, crappy music (most of "rap" falls in this category), people who ask stupid questions or make stupid statements, who hate on anime characters for idiotic or superficial reasons, anime-character whores who are too closed-minded to see the good points in other characters, fan-fiction stories with ridiculous and/or boring plots, or characters who aren't represented or developed correctly (this also applies to anime & manga).
Yu Yu Hakusho, Inuyasha, Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Ronin Warriors, Tenchi Muyo (the first two seasons), Hajime no Ippo (a.k.a Fighting Spirit), Berserk, Bleach, Naruto, Yugioh (ONLY the original series), Rurouni Kenshin (a.k.a.

Shamo (very good read), Sanctuary (another good read, and the Godfather of Japanese manga), Bleach, Naruto (when the story isn't focused solely on Sasuke), Hajime no Ippo (one of the best series ever made), Rurouni Kenshin, Star Wars (U.S. comics, but still good), Street Fighter (the Udon comics are the best I've read), Tenjou Tenghe (not sure where the story is going, but still a good read no less), Air Gear, Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru.
Poltergeist Report 2: The Untold Saga (Yu Yu Hakusho) - this is my bread, named so because it is a rewrite of the very first fan-fic I ever posted, going formerly by the name Legend of the Spirit Swordsman. I will be devoting the majority of my writing to this story and the one mentioned below it. The other works of mine will be postponed until I finish these two.
Two of a Kind (Rurouni Kenshin) - this is my butter, named so because it is currently the most popular story I've written. Like the story listed above, this will also share the majority of my writing time. So expect any future updates to consist of this story and the one listed above.
Her Most Beautiful Smile (Rurouni Kenshin) - On hiatus until further notice.
I have two future works that I plan to release, one a Rurouni Kenshin and the other a Naruto based story. However, I will not begin working on these until I finish my current two stories, listed above.
On another note, allow me to say this. It is WIDELY acknowledged that Dragonball Z & Naruto are two of the biggest anime series ever produced, EVER. I do not dispute this AT ALL. However, I must say that it is FUCKING DISGUSTING what Toriyama Akira and Kishimoto Masashi have done to their respective series. From character development to plot development, to even the FUCKING PAIRINGS, these two "legendary authors" have royally fucked the ever loving shit out of their series. And I mean with no KY or vaseline. These two authors took what were epic series, and while one turned his into an alien-loving/human-hating OP MC love fest that was CLEARLY an attempt to fire back at the Goku vs Superman debates; the other did literally EVERYTHING possible to absolutely SHIT on his MC and the last arc of the story-line, in terms of the development of BOTH. And as if these weren't grievous offenses enough, they BOTH have the nerve to still try to PIMP nostalgic fans out of getting more money on these epic fucking failures of a series. And a lot of dumb-ass fans are ACTUALLY catering to and defending this bullshit!!! Honestly, if I had my way neither of these two cock stains would EVER be allowed to write manga again.
Also, I found this on a fellow author's profile page (Kizoku Seishin), and agreed with it so much that I decided to post it on my profile page as well.

"Luck is for everyone, the only foolish people, are those who rely on it."
"Always be a man, or woman, of your word. If you say you're going to do something, then do it. Because actions will always speak louder than words, no matter how loudly you speak."
Well, that's all for now, so until next time, Ja ne.
