Poll: Did you learn a new thing about MA/M ratings? :p Vote Now!
Wow, I don't think I've ever written anything in my profile since I got the account years ago.
I don't write fanfiction because of two reasons. For one, I'm absolutely in love with my own novel so much that writing a fanfic doesn't even cross the mind. And two, I just enjoy reading fanfics so much more than writing them.
My biggest pet peeve in fanfiction is when authors demand that they get reviews for their stories, especially when they hold the story hostage. I can't help it, any story that I see with that, no matter how much I love it usually gets reported after I review to the author on how bad an idea that is. Even if they get the reviews they want, they'll go back eventually to demanding again. Plus, I know I'm not the only person who will report a story for that. It really is sad to see a well written story being taken off the site.
LOL, that definitely gets mixed results. For the most part I've had reasonable conversations about it. And then there are others that have harassed my account, thrown abuse at me in pm's then blocked my user so I wasn't able to report it. They really should fix that.
I would like to point out that an author asking for reviews is not a bad thing, nor unreasonable. I understand wanting to know that someone is reading your story. It's the demanding that gets me. And its sad that they think that's acceptable behavior. :(
And just for the record. The rating system. It goes,
MA = NC-17 -- Which means anything explicit. So detailed description of sex, violence torture, etc. That includes SMUT, Lemons, some lime.
M = R -- That's non explicit. So basically, fighting with blood, killing, etc. And non detailed sex. All details but that they had sex should not be included in a M rated fic.
With that said, I love smut, I prefer to read stories with well written smut, it it's not I'll completely abandon the fic. But I'll read anything and everything.
And FF.net moderators are very lax when it comes to the MA/M ratings. :) I love FF.net. The best plot and lemons are here.
But after reading this, and you don't want post your lemons here you can either post your stories somewhere else or the deleted scenes somewhere else. I would suggest either ' Archive of OUr Own ' or ' Adultfanfiction '
This is a great day!! I managed to piss someone off and they are deluded about there being no difference between M and MA rating. :) Got a great idea on who it is too. Congrats. Love you too!!
