fandom-related complaints

1. If in the header of your story, you apologize for poor characterization of one of the main two people in the story? Maybe you should consider not posting it. Or at least rewriting it.

2. Your OC is not as speshul as you think.

3. It is hard to get bad writers to improve, because any criticism, even constructive, will most likely not be well-received.

4. Your icon is probably not as legible as you think it is. And, you know, .png is your friend.

5. There is a difference between fic inspired by a song, and songfic. One of these two should be avoided whenever possible.

6. DO YOU KNOW WHAT AN OXFORD COMMA IS no, but seriously, basic grammar? Quotations cannot end without some punctuation before the close-quote. Consider the use of the comma when one character says another's name-- do not be afraid of it. And for the love of god, do not misuse the semicolon or I will beat you with a pair of brackets.

7. An RP with your screennames taken out is not fanfiction. It is RP. If you want to write a fic using it, at least try to mask that fact a little?

8. I just wanted to end on an even number. Um... eight, eight, I forget what eight was for!

This post brought to you by vaguely poking through some communities I haven't checked in a while, the letter F, and some really disappointing stories with really promising summaries.

Okay, I am going to swap my (nice, but boring, and single-panel) blue curtains for my (awesome, self-made, AWESOME) blue and purple sparkly star curtains. :D And then I am going to bed, because I have to go help out at the SA tomorrow, and I have an appointment at 11, and then I am probably going to walk down to the DMV and see about getting either a Non-Driver's ID or a new Driver's Permit. (It is all right that I am 23 and cannot drive. This is not something I need to feel bad about. MANTRA.)

Yawny. ♥
