Author has written 39 stories for Thunderbirds, and Battle of the Planets.
Wow, it is a very long time since I updated this!
I'm now a rather more established fanfic writer. Still the same two fandoms - and I've also combined the two in a couple of crossovers. In my mind's eye, both exist in the same universe, so while there's no crossover material in the vast majority of my stories, the events of the crossover stories have happened in them.
I've been writing Battle of the Planets fanfic since the late 1970s, and Thunderbirds fanfic since the mid 2000s.
I love reviews - please tell me what you think. Comments on what didn't work for you are just as welcome as nice stuff.
And if you're looking here because I left you a review, please read the line above again. I love to get comments on what isn't quite right about my story. I believe that a story can be good without being "good enough". I don't think pointing out errors or making suggestions for improvement is an insult. I also write original fiction, and my dream fanfic review is the sort of critique that you'd get at, say, absolutewrite.
And when I see a story I love, I'll often leave it the sort of review that I'd like to get if I'd written it. This works, this doesn't work. Though probably not full critique length.
I've been told that this sort of review can be so upsetting to some people that it makes them cry.
If I've done this to you, then I'm sorry. I didn't mean to upset you, I simply assumed that you have the same attitude to writing that I have, and I was wrong. It doesn't mean I hate your story, it means it inspired me. And it certainly doesn't mean I hate you, or think I'm better than you, or want you to stop writing. And you don't need to worry about me upsetting you again. Unless I get a positive response, I'll never do it twice.
And...things change, at least somewhat. If you look at my review pages, you'll see some delightful recent entries. No, I won't be deleting them.
This is what happens when you tell someone that they need to take down their plagiarised story, they ignore you, and then site management takes their entire account down for them. It is, of course, all your fault.
It's also, sadly, what happens when someone decides that they're going to pigeonhole all TB writers into "people who I praise" and "people who I'm unpleasant to". Because it's completely impossible that anyone could ever read and enjoy both well-written traditional TV-verse Thunderbirds stories and well-written Thunderbirds stories which don't fit that profile... or that anyone could possibly enjoy a story they've read based on how good it is rather than who wrote it.
I'd like to think I do both. I'm sure lots of other TB readers and writers also do both. But I do think it's important that writers are aware of the type of anonymous little presents that this person gives out, so they know that it has nothing to do with their writing, but is based on things like where else their fanfic is archived, or who their beta-reader is.
