    I’ve noticed a similar trend on hits with my main potter fanfic, which has two versions, a clean and an explicit – hit counters definitely favor the smut/sex-filled story.

    I fear the omens are true. A large number of AFF users are truly colossal perverts.

    Kei0523 got a reaction from CloverReef in That feeling when beta reader 1 says the stuff you have sounds good because she goes   
    Haha valid points all around! ^^
    I tend to be unnecessarily descriptive and provide too much detail or information all at once. That was one of the hardest challenges with the first fic I posted on AFF. That roadblock is what ended up fueling my hiatus because I knew exactly what I wanted for the climax of this one scene, didn’t want to give up a single detail, and in the end I had to accept the fact that it just didn’t mesh well with how I wanted to present the ending of the story.
    Many thanks, both of you! This truly does help!

    I'd offer to take a look at a snippet for you, but I have a tendancy to be tough on background info so there's a good chance I'd be on beta number 2s side lol.

    @Kei0523 That’s a very interested reader, cherish them!  
    For me and my stories, I’d definitely pay attention to a “too much” comment.  It’s *way* too easy to write an information overload, because you know your story, you know your details, your style, and so it makes sense to you, and perhaps a faithful reader.   Unless words are at a premium, I’d be considering breaking that apart, either in multiple scenes, or simply shifting some of the less important details to later in that scene (or even other scenes).  And the beginning of a story is much more susceptible to this.  That’s my two cents.

    When there’s a difference of opinion between betas, I always suggest you go with the beta who writes stuff or reads stuff closer to what you want to emulate. Or get a third person to be the tie breaker!

    I really don't think you have to worry about writing a Mary sue. If it feels right going in that direction, go with it. Trust your instincts. Some of my favorite characters in best sellers would technically be Mary sues according to the typical criteria, but were so interesting and believable that they don't feel like Mary sues. 
    Don't fret. Listen to your muse. You can worry about any mary sueness once it's done and the editing begins.

    Give her some phobias, allergies, and some undesirable traits…. black widow seeking younger girls?

    To be fair. I’m sure writers tend to have questionable search histories.

    Searching can be quite annoying too, at times, like when Google keeps insisting on giving me cures to diarrhea when I'm trying to give it to a character!  Stupid google...grumbles.
