Author has written 4 stories for Inuyasha, Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, and Eyeshield 21.
...the last few years have been odd... I'm kinda in and out here... I'll never fully disappear so one day eventually everything will be continued (except I might gather some of the past stories into one to make a 'random drabble, one shots, ideas that will never fully be...').
My profile aka the place where I rant.
I'm incredibly lazy.
Lazy but at the same time, not.
If that makes sense.
I'm really snarky... so I'm sorry if I offend anyone. I have a habit of being very mellow when writing author notes, profiles, or talking in general. It's seriously not meant to offend anyone-- and I am trying to fix it...kind of.
Some of them reflect my views on the world. Some go completely against my preferences. Some I can't even believe I posted...
Good side: It's nice getting compliments from total strangers who I will most likely never meet and even if we did meet, I wouldn't tell you it's me. Sometimes they're nice and helpful and actually mean things to me.
Bad side: 'I expect (insert number here) reviews or you won't be seeing another chapter.'
My reaction: ...um...okay... (stops reading story)
I do review. Sometimes. It's only when something really stands out at me. If it's bad, I don't even bother doing anything. If it's good...well, unless you want me to copy and paste the same review from before, stop asking.
Is there a contest I don't know about or something? Will you win a prize for hitting a certain number? Is getting a lot make you feel better because your real life sucks? I'm sorry if I sound really insensitive but we all have sob stories. Go out and take action.
Will (like mentioned before) getting compliments from strangers about your story (which will not get published since it's fanfiction) make your life that much more meaningful? (But then again...you can argue about what makes life meaningful...and then start questioning life in general...and...what am I doing...I'll stop.)
And honestly, most of the reviews just says: UPDATE or uPDatE, or update soon! or something else along those lines...
Argue with me. I love arguing! ...uh...debating...
The cringe side of the reviews:
Okay...I have to say...I'm not trying to be special or 'cool' or being full of myself when I say this:
I really couldn't care about the number of reviews.
Because honestly, 95% of the time, the review literally just says "UPDATE!" or "I'M GLAD YOU UPDATED!" or "I LOVE YOU FOR UPDATING!"
Um...thanks? I use a question mark there because I don't think that's a compliment and really, it's kind of useless to me. It doesn't really make me feel better or bad or...anything... I'm just thinking...what is the point of that... It's not going to make me update faster or anything...because I'm not indebted to the reviewers for reviewing...
I'd prefer if reviews actually told me something like if you say "I LOVE YOUR STORY!" then the only thing I can think of is: Why? Can you actually give me a reason? I mean, I'm wondering if people actually read what I write because I do plan things out and foreshadow stuff/insert easter eggs or whatever they're called and none of that seems to be picked up on...
I understand that whoever sends in reviews like the above believe that they're cheering the author on or something like that but...I don't necessarily feel...good...at all.
It feels like you're wasting both our time by writing something that's not helpful to me or to you.
You might as well just not review. I am fine with that. My world doesn't revolve around you sending in your comments about 'I LOVE HOW YOU UPDATE A LOT/FAST!!'
My reply: ...uuhh...okay...great... Thanks for...telling me that? (...what...) ...moving on...
Whatever. Am I making a big deal out of this?
Not really...I mean I haven't done what this one author did by putting all her stories on hiatus because she got seriously annoyed by the reviews like above. I'm not going to do that but I can understand her annoyance since it seems like rather than concentrating on her story, they concentrate on the fact that she updated frequently. People work hard and when they do get reviews, they concentrate on the update itself instead of the story? Like...are you reading what was written? At all???
My point is...quality over quantity all the way.
Responses to reviews:
I try to reply back! Well...usually to the ones with questions. If I don't, it's usually because the review is in one of the completed stories/one-shots that I don't really check often... OR I don't remember if I replied to the review already or not...
OR your review is one of the following:
1) I don't want to answer it.
2) It's been answered already.
3) If I reply back, I know my answer will hurt you because I want it to hurt you but I'm trying to be nice.
4) I actually have no idea how to reply back to what you wrote.
5) I haven't been on this site for a super long time and I figure you don't mind whether or not I reply any more...
6) Your review is anonymous and I'm not a big fan of writing long author notes in stories...
And umm...people have been asking me if I'd allow them to make videos or a read-alouds or art or use a similar idea for a fic I wrote.
I don't see why I should stop you. If something I wrote inspired you to do something, go for it!
I'm not the best of writers but there are some things that sincerely piss me off.
Tell me--do you know the difference between 'your' and 'you're'? They sound the same, don't they? Hell, they even look the same! Could it be possible that they are the same?
Fuck you. NO.
A heart-warming moment takes place and the couple expresses their love for each other after going through obstacles and trials and shit-I-probably-skipped-over:
"Your the only one for me."
My reaction: (clicks back button) Good bye.
Say it with me: YOU ARE equals YOU'RE. Not your, ur, or yur.
It's the same thing with there, their, and they're.
THEY ARE NOT THE SAME.
I realize that the English language is a whore that stole so many words from other languages that, yeah, it is pretty difficult to get complete grasp on it and the occasional mistake can be passed over because I make them too...
It's when these mistakes are repeated...OVER AND OVER AGAIN is where we have the problem.
I know people who know over eight different languages and can still speak them all fluently and you're telling me you can't even get a handle on ONE LANGUAGE?!
I understand how there are some...uh...let's call them 'authors' who make polls about their stories and characters and what event would be more interesting, etc., etc., and it's fine; you get ideas and whatnot and you find out what readers prefer so you can squeeze out every last drop of their love for you in the form of reviews (which is stupid but whatever, that's my opinion but, I mean, for all I know, maybe you're actually getting paid and the money you get is proportional to the number of reviews...is that it? Did I figure out the secret??).
As soon as an author starts to use every idea from a reviewer or a comment is where the downfall begins.
It's not your frigging story any more. It's not even your original idea since someone else told you to write it.
It's the readers' frigging story.
Go fix it now.
About author notes:
It's all good until it ends up being longer than the actual chapter and/or inserted every other line.
...well, this isn't a rant it's just more about me
I update according to:
That is it.
I am a grown up! (...it is...not the greatest...)
And as a child, you have plenty of time and energy but no money...but as an adult, you have money and energy but no time. And what little time I do have, I use to enjoy life rather than sit in front of computer all day, every day.
Stop desperately waiting for me to update.
Go write your own stories or just get off the computer and talk to people in real life.
My Stories' Reviews...
Umm...here's the thing. I don't mind reading ideas about what people want in the future.
But I will NEVER use them.
It pissed me off when people beg (yeah...I got a few pm and reviews begging that I change something...) that I should do so and so or ask if I can change this or make this happen in the future.
I want to be able to do create something that's completely my own original thing. I don't want to use anyone's idea except my own.
I don't mind receiving helpful comments and stuff that people say hoping to make one of my stories better if I do a certain thing. I do think about and go over the chapters I've typed up (but haven't uploaded) to see if I can make it interesting.
Here's MY response:
I take it into consideration but I'm not going to change/add anything so it can suit your needs. If there's something wrong that you don't like then YOU do something and write YOUR own story. The only reason I write is because I want to read stories similar to what I'm writing and that's what I'm hoping to make others do.
I don't mean take my ideas and alter them to make a story that's kind of different and say it's yours.
I mean be ORIGINAL.
Writing that you're trying to be nice by saying something and then, going back and trying to apologize for your words doesn't really help me at all. If you have something you want to say, then don't sugar coat it. Just write it all out. I mean what am I going to do? Reach through the screen and throttle you? (...actually...with the way technology is evolving now...that might be possible in the future...)
If you don't like what you're reading, then you go write what you want to read. If you don't like my stories...well...no one is forcing you to read them and if they are...well...I guess I can't do much about that. Sorry.
My Stories' Reviews Part 2:
I don't really know if that review was a flame or not...and I'm not really offended or anything, it's just...I need to make myself clear.
I posted this as a chapter (I got rid of it) in 'Keep Me Interested' and I liked it so I wanted to put it on my profile:
A/N - This note will be deleted after 24 hours.
Sorry this is not an update but a reply to one of the 'reviews,' at which I'm not sure whether it's for me or other people (I'm going to assume 'me...').
Unfortunately, it's an anonymous review so I can't pm this. (See guys? I have no way to properly answer you other than doing this!)
Translation in brackets.
First of all:
You're funny. (You really are.)
Second of all:
...umm... I don't review my own stories... (seriously)
That's...kind of a waste of time and really, really sad. (Really, really, really sad)
I don't even like giving reviews (people who read my profile would know) even if they're to myself ('cause it's kind of really, really, really sad).
That was a bit of a presumptuous comment (not a bit--it was). Sorry (not really).
I don't care about the amount of reviews either ('cause this is also kind of really, really, really sad).
If I did, then why would I give mass amounts of updates? (people demand five/ten/fifteen/seventhousand reviews for 1 twenty-lined chapter...should I start that? I didn't think so.)
There are always more anonymous reviews than actual account reviews (if you wrote something yourself, you would know).
Should I just disable anonymous reviews? (It's never been a problem so I never really cared.)
If your 'review' has nothing to do with what I wrote then...can you just like...go away? Kthxbye
[hits chest twice]
[...you know I like this reply of mine...I might just post it on my profile later...]
...and what do you know? I posted it on my profile.
Alright, I didn't keep it on for 24 hours...mostly cause I don't like updating with that 'chapter' still there. Also 'cause it's against the rules to have an author note as a chapter...
Yeah...everything that needs to be said is up there.
IF YOU WANNA ARGUE, PM ME DAMN IT! Don't use the reviews...like honestly, it's so annoying to respond back like that 'cause I can't pm you since you choose to be anonymous...
The review (flame? Well, it definitely wasn't criticism...but I guess it wasn't really a flame? I dunno...wtf is a flame...) said I made 80% of the reviews for 'Keep Me Interested' (apparently, since around 80% are anonymous, I must have made them all! ...seriously? Who the hell has time for that?)
But...uh...there's only like twice the amount of the reviews as there are chapters (meaning, on average, about two reviews per chapter which isn't much compared to my other fics)...so that means if I did review my own story...I reviewed more than once for each chapter. (Yeah. I can do math.)
...why would I do that? (Why would ANYONE do that?) It's a bigger waste of time and there are some chapters with no reviews at all so wouldn't it make sense for me to review those?
Come on, man! Use your common sense! The fact that you even thought of that means you probably did it yourself (if you even have an account...).
Tsk tsk! Young people these days...with all their sabotage and lack of logic...
MY NUMBER ONE FAVOURITE ANIME/MANGA OF ALL TIME:
It's never going to go away. I LOOOVE this to bits. I will re-watch, re-read, and re-share my love for this.
I even actually like some of the filler arcs. Unlike Bleach/Naruto/Fairy Tail, the fillers do not go on for 30 episodes. And the fillers are just that-- FILLERS. They're never mentioned or come up again later in the series. Also, the One Piece fillers are actually pretty interesting. Ex. the G-8 arc was pretty fun (or at least, Iron Chef Sanji made up for it...)
WILL NEVER DIE! I believe the anime will come back for the fourth time...eventually... and even my friends who don't like anime like Gintama. SO FUNNY.
Toriko, Eyeshield 21, Black Butler, Psyren, Beelzebub, 7 seeds... These are a few of my favourites but...I only like the manga for the JUMP ones... their respective animes disappointed me... ES21 really killed me...and I don't mean that in a good way...it was disappointingly upsetting... (and also, Psyren and 7 seeds don't have an anime...even though IT'S SO GOOD...although I admit Psyren was a bit...like the characters had their on and off moments...some of them being really off for a really long time...)
Liar Game is another favourite but it kind of...blows my mind and I'm an idiot so I don't get a lot of stuff they're going on about...
I also like a lot of webtoons...
GONE WITH THE WIND...AT LEAST FROM MY FAVOUR:
Death Note jumped the shark (for me anyway...) after L died. And also, did you notice how they seem to hate females in that manga? They were stupid, dull, or killed off once their use was done...
Bleach jumped the shark after...I'm actually not too sure...I guess after Ulquiorra died? I mean, it kind of got weird and insane and it felt like everything was getting pulled out of no where... Just waiting for Grimmjow to reappear now...(HE'S NOT DEAD, DAMN IT! KIBO SAID SO!) but...I have a feeling I will be very disappointed...
Naruto...what the hell happened...it just...really? I don't even know when I stopped liking it... Actually, maybe when Hidan 'died...' still kinda trudging through it, just wanting to know how it frigging ends! I don't even know what the hell kind of techniques they're using any more or who's what and too many damn characters are out but I do know this! TOBI = OBITO...Kishimoto really trolled us with that...
Reborn: ...I really really liked this...and then that ending...so many questions...unfulfilled...
But I did have some problems as the series progressed. Starting from the end of the future arc...
So basically, they get a NEW weapon every arc and history seems to be repeating itself.
A lot of the characters are definitely Mary Sues... (ROKUDO MUKURO IS A MARY SUE WHETHER YOU ADMIT IT OR NOT THAT'S THE TRUTH)I do like that they've explained the whole Arcobaleno thing but...it got scary kind of fast and the Mary Sues don't help. And girls are all useless (don't give me that crap about Chrome and what's her name from the Shimon family...kind of wanna say Hilda but I know that's not right...what the hell's her weapon anyway? She was shown with metal or I don't know, plastic? Paper? fans as her weapons and then after that one time, she got something completely different... Just like everyone's weapons! Oh, wait no, the Varia's more or less stayed the same...kind of...no...I'm biased against the Varia).
Inuyasha: ...I don't even know. It went down hill for me as soon as it just kept dragging on... I kind of liked the characters but...I guess that's really the only thing that saves it for me. The storyline started boring me after Naraku just kept getting away... He's like the biggest troll... You think you got him but it's like nope it's a puppet or I got a NEW power of getting away or 'Your princess is in another castle!' and by 'your princess' I mean 'his heart' and 'castle' as in...actually just another castle/cave/randomplace...
I use Kagome in my stories because...she's very bendable. Personality-wise that is. And she's basically the normal teenage girl-archetype. Which I like using. And abusing.
And I like Byakuya. Lots.
Wow...did you actually read all that? I don't even read all that... (which explains the many grammar/spelling errors littering the page...)
Anyway, none of my stories are on hiatus...or well...you can argue that they're all on hiatus?? I seriously just update according to how I feel and what I have written... I do have something written for everything but if I'm not satisfied with it, I don't tend to upload it.
That's about it...
