    Completed Stories

    Desi makes a good point. So, I went to all of my stories and added the Complete tag to the stories which it applies to.

    "Nonsense reviews"

    In the past couple of days, I’ve received five “nonsense reviews” that look like this: From ANON - on October 06, 2021NKGfAy cgrngykbkdod, uwuuwppwtogw, [link=http://dbghcmuhsqds.com/]dbghcmuhsqds[/link], h**p://hgavtlargcnu.com/ There’s no obvious rhyme or reason to which stories are getting them, as some are in Cartoons and some are in Originals (the only 2 archive sections in which I have stories posted). A recent post from @InBrightestDay suggests that he’s getting them, too. Anything to be done besides deleting them?

    "Nonsense reviews"

    I’ve gotten three: two on WitS and one on The Least I Can Do over in Books. I’ve deleted them, and thankfully had the same thought as Bronx when it came to the links. I don’t really want to turn off anonymous reviews, as I’ve gotten several genuine reviews from fans who simply don’t have an account, so I’ll just keep deleting them as they pop up.

    I’m guessing spam (the least nefarious idea), and you definitely should NOT follow those links, wherever they may lead is likely a place you don’t want to go.

    Damn, that’s sad. I didn’t know her, but I’ve experienced something similar myself, and it certainly hurts. *hugs*

    Completed Stories

    I always add the COMPLETED tag when I finish a story, if only to keep people from posting lengthy “reviews” about what they want to see in the next chapter. Now they pester me for sequels instead.

    “Completed” – thinking that eliminates at least 95% of the stories.

    At last, “My Wish Is Your Command” is finished! Chapter 12: Getting Around to It Epilogue In other news, I recently enjoyed a couple of @Evil Fairy’s old fics, both Halloween-themed: her Ruby Gloom story “A Fairy for Gloomsville,” in which Ruby is unwittingly transformed into a dominatrix and has a fine time “torturing” Iris; and her Kick Buttowski story “Attack of the Perilous Pumpkin Patch Girls!” in which Wacky Jackie and Kendall have their way with Kick and Brianna, respectively. Both fun reads.

    Another review from @GeorgeGlass, this time for WitS chapters 4-6! One does wonder about the insurance claim there… Kind of reminds me of that bit from Big Trouble in Little China where Jack Burton is trying to figure out what to do concerning the loss of his truck due to supernatural forces. “...And I don’t want to hear ‘Act of God’.” The Charnel Spider does seem to be something of a fan favorite. Because none of this would have happened without JayDee giving me permission to write it, they got an advance copy of every chapter before posting, and I remember being really excited to show them the Charnel Spider, due to the...well, I guess it really being kind of fucked up horror imagery. I wasn’t really sure how to portray an Envy-based monster. The problem there was that the obvious solution, shapeshifting to be what it wants to be, was something that, if I recall correctly, Fullmetal Alchemist had already done with the homunculus Envy. The idea of, instead of copying what you want, taking it from someone else, was sufficiently creepy to me (“I wish I had skin like that...so I’ll just take yours.”) that I went with that. I’m glad the confrontation was reminiscent of WoH, as this was probably the part of the story where I was most dedicated to evoking some of the feel of JayDee’s first story. Thanks again for the review!

    We just have the one, plus DG. Honestly, this site operates exceedingly well, considering the fact that we are a volunteer operation. Probably The Rise of the Drakens, (Dragon Prints : 752724) but honestly, there might be one or two with more hits.

    We actually have never tracked hit count data on individual stories, but I think you are correct in thinking it would get ruined by manipulation if we did.

    "Nonsense reviews"

    Sadly, the only way to deflect them is to turn off anonymous reviews, which is an account-wide function and not just by the story. But @Desiderius Price is absolutely right about not following the links. Delete the reviews, and click NOTHING. As I sweep the archive, I delete things like that on sight.

    Evil Fairy's Review Replies

    For GeorgeGlass' comments on Attack of the Perilous Pumpkin Patch Girls! and A Fairy for Gloomsville: Well gosh, thanks for dusting these two old stories off and giving them a read! I really appreciate it! As far as the ‘Black Pumpkin’ stories go...if I’m remembering correctly (and goodness knows, it’s been awhile!) at least Jayrich and Nurse Katie contributed to that particular Writer’s Jam as well. In fact, in addition to an official entry, NK wrote a pretty hilarious prologue for it, set in Regular Show. Light on the sexual action, as I recall, but very funny. But I don’t know if either of them posted up their contributions anywhere but on wwoec. *moment of silence* Younger lolis with babyfat boobies are a particular favorite of mine, so I’m right with you on that one. Kendall is one of my very favorite lolis...she’d probably be even higher on my list if she’d gotten more screentime, but, alas… Anyway, she definitely strikes me as the kind of girl who’d seek out ‘accidental’ stimulation from the dryer or wherever, rather than stoop to actually just playing with herself. Unlike Jackie, who probably has remarkably strong forearm and finger strength in addition to her overall stalker physique! I’m glad you liked Kick’s one-liner. That’s the kind of thing a Kick story just has to have, you know? (And thanks for not calling me out on the, ahem, cameos...it was in style and not at all played out at the time, I swear!) I always thought of Fairy for Gloomsville as one of my sillier stories, but it was an awful lot of fun to write, way back when! Honestly, looking back on it, Ruby and Desiree’s little exchange is probably my favorite part of it, so it makes me so happy to know you liked those lines as well! Turning Ruby into a semi-willing dominatrix and Iris into her very willing victim seemed to fit both characters, but especially thrill-seeking Iris! If you wanna spank that little cyclops, she’s got no time for you to feel bad about it, she just wants the spanking! XD At any rate, again, I really do appreciate hearing your thoughts on these old stories. Looking over them myself, I’d have to call them ‘shaky’ at least in terms of overall writing quality, but it’s absolutely lovely to hear that you still found them entertaining! Thank you so much!

    Alright! The last review from @GeorgeGlass I won’t go into this too deeply, as a future story may have a scene addressing the topic again, but this is definitely an overriding philosophy on display here: science and philosophy (religion included) are two ways of looking at the world, and if both religion and science are equally valid, as is the case in this story, then at the points where the two touch, they should overlap without conflicting. I personally like the effect when you combine the two. This comes up in Chapter 3 with Luzurial’s happiest memory being 13.6 billion years ago, fusion igniting inside the first star, when Luzurial explains that lower-ranking angels look like the mortals of whatever planet they’re assigned to and so on. It’s something I really enjoyed doing with the story. I had so much fun with that. Credit must also be given to @JayDee, because way back in the day, I was actually just going to have Luzurial get a new sword when she regained her wings. However, during conversation with JayDee, they mentioned that the sword is actually a part of Luzurial, like a shard of her soul, so at that point she had to get it back, and the idea of using the flaming whip like that was way too good to pass up! I thought about that, and I admit this has to do with the mental image that resulted. Holy water is water that’s been blessed by a priest, and when I considered it being standard use against beings like this, I had the image of a bunch of priests on like an assembly line, blessing holy water in huge quantities...and I started chuckling at the image. So yeah, holy water is made in relatively small quantities, but it’s for a very personal reason. So...I am very sorry about that. I wish there were some manner of explanation I could give you, but the simple fact was that I didn’t think of it. I can’t begin to explain why I never thought to have her say it in the denouement. Doesn’t make me look particularly intelligent, does it? Again, I’m sorry. Thank you again! The Hell scene wasn’t something I’d planned from the beginning but evolved out of the storytelling. It all started with that bit in Chapter 4 where I was sort of summing Eparlegna’s character up through dialogue, and then later with his dialogue with Kevin in Chapter 6 he kept insulting Lucifer and I started to have thoughts... Thank you for the reviews, and I’m really happy you enjoyed it.

    Oh I am trying to give more details into the girls, I 100% hate the helpless “damsel” in distress or characters that are only some times useful to the main characters. I WANT, them to more or less be equals just different, but I do have a self imposed restriction of no more than 10-15 pages per chapter, or I could end up with 100 pages in no time X_X

    Introducing characters

    Here’s a thought. Pick a book that you loved to read, something that caught your attention from the first paragraph. Look at how that author opened the story. Was it action, like @Desiderius Price uses? Was it an epigraph? Was it a flashback? These are all ways to catch the reader’s attention, and make them want to keep reading. There’s nothing wrong with the “It was a dark and stormy night” opening. It worked for Snoopy every time. But what, past that sentence, will hook the reader? (Hint: Snoopy would follow up by saying something like, “The Red Baron’s plane roared through the sky.” Action, and where was the Red baron going? Read on, dear reader!)

    I figured a full multi-chapter rewrite wouldn’t be great in a forum post, so didn’t portray the douche-bag’s blood reduction process before his perpetual eternal BBQ. Otherwise, I agree it’s best to not perpetuate the stereotypes (though, while writing fiction, I don’t mind plastering offender’s brains on the ceilings….)

    My rule is usually pretty simple – is it a fucking stupid name? If so, I’ll probably use it.
