  1. It annoys me that when you thouraghly research something in depth and for years, when you use the information you discovered in your story there's always someone who says you're wrong...as if all those professionals are all liers and you're just making shit up. >:/

  2. Ugh! Being happy makes me crap at writing angst! :/ Angst is usually my forte but now I have got my life reasonably together and am seeing someone (first time in a looong time!) aparently I can only write slushy romantic rubbish. >:/ This is annoying me!

      I find myself with strange problems sometimes, too. Mostly that I can't write hot sex if I've just been laid. And if I'm braindead, forget about plot development.

      YES! Me too! Lol. I've been writing a lot of happy mushy teen rated stories and its driving me nuts! Lol. I'm happy...I'm not used to this! :P I used to make people cry with my angst now I can't do it. :/

      I had similar problems adjusting. I can still do angst if I'm sad, anger if I'm mad or darkly amused. It's just that my writing focuses mostly on making people laugh in whatever creative ways I can find. It takes more time to write anything other than humor, though.

  3. ...well...my grey matter appears to be taking a holiday. -.-' Inspiration is thin on the ground it seems.

      It happens. Take a break, then, and go do something else you enjoy for a while. ;)

  4. Rurouni Kenshin Live Action film? EPIC! :D

  5. On the 14th of Feb it will be the first Valentines day I spend alone in...about four years. :'(

      Your muse flew the coop?

      I find I have to keep mine in jungle gyms and mine fields; they get bored and wander otherwise.

      Yeah, I reckon he's on holiday...probably in Japan...(I really want to go there, but I don't have an incorporeal body.) Ah well, I'm sure he'll return...hopefully, lol.

      Better grab a lasso, then, I guess.... (Just to watch me tangle myself up in it, of course, since I'm in no way an expert. ;) )

    Bad Author

    Concrit is good, what is bad is when people stalk you across TWO seperate websites simply to spam your stories saying they're shit. A human being can only take so much abuse before cracks begin to show. I have confidence ups and downs, some days the abuse doesn't bother me, other days it really gets to me and somedays I crack and go a little insane. It's just a perfectly natural human reaction, nothing to be ashamed of. As i've said before, concrit is something an author can use to improve, calling someone's work 'shit' and telling them to go die is as far from concrit as you can go. Recently I was also called a Homophobe on FF . Net (It's a friggin' trolls nest there! Lol) for doing a Kinky Slash one-shot that involved one of the characters dressing in womens underwear...I laughed at that, however, if I'm on a downer it would probably affect me a lot more than it should. I do accept that publishing on a public forum involves risks, it's inevitable, but I do it for the few people who do give concrit and those who genuinely enjoy reading my stories...i mean, they have to be out there somewhere, lol. Even the most well known Authors probably suffer from moments where they doubt themselves, again, it's only human to do so. No one goes through life without having some doubts, and sometimes other people's nastiness can really affect one's confidence. It's just one of those sad things.

    Troll?

    I know the one I left up as an example was a poor example of this person being trollish, if it had just been this single review then fine, i'd ignore it. Unfortunately, as I said, this same person did leave some other comments which were the same as I get everywhere else. I understand that you can't really do much from this, that's fine. Thanks for replying anyway.

    Troll?

    Now, I am not 100% sure whether people would count this as a troll but I'm reporting them just in case. They are one of those who are apparently stalking me, they commented on another of my stories but I deleted the comments as they were just rude. I kind of hoped they'd go away after that but obviously they haven't. -.-' Here's the profile link to the person who has been (in the past) unreasonably nasty: http://members.adult-fanfiction.org/profile.php?no=1296930818 Here's an example of their latest review: Body of review from venesavv follows: your stories only get worst with every new story! It's pretty mild compared to other stuff I have received but it IS irritating, to me this isn't a review, this is just an opinion. Reviews should be constructive, surely? Maybe I'm wrong and this isn't one of the hoards of trolls following me, if it's not considered a troll I apologise. (Maybe i'm getting paranoid, lol) I did delete the original review on my story...which was stupid of me. I kind of did it automatically...the Copypasta of the Review came from the e-mail sent to me when I got it. I'm an idiot. Lol. So, there may be nothing anyone can do as it's not really offensive or anything but there we go, I didn't know what else to do.
  10. I don't understand how people can tell me my stpries get worse each time...I mean, if they think that, surely that means they're reading it? But...why would you read a story you know you're not going to like? It makes no sense to me.

      Well, yes, but I like to bitch, too, and I don't take excuses like that....

      True, true...but I suppose in some ways they do us a favor because they ARE giving us something to bitch about. Lol.

    4. Cuzosu

      Cuzosu

      LOL! That's probably the best way to look at it. I may bitch about it anyway. ;)

  11. I have just fucked my back up...in soooo much pain, but at least I am still able to type. *Phew*

      Yeah, my family's not usually bad at it, either, but my back was all sorts of messed up, so we had to call on help. Normally I can pop my back with some twisting or stretching, maybe a little heat where needed, but that time it all failed and I was having a hard time popping my neck, too, so my family couldn't help.

      The main thing is, I'm better. And, I hope, so are you.

    My Immortal, Bad Fanfiction or Brilliant Parody?

    Personally I found it hilarious, but then I have read many a fanfiction that was simply terrible and laughed...I suppose it's why I like those really cheap crappy horror movies so much.
  13. Now, I know how old the fanfiction 'My Immortal' is but I am curious as to what others think of it. I read it all the way through, after suffering horrendous headaches while attempting the feat, and have found that actually it's appears to be a very clever Parody. The spelling, structure and all the rest is awful (even worse than mine, and I'm Dyslexic! Lol) However, if it is a Trollfic it is an extremely clever one, the reactions alone are enough to show how successful it is. My only issue is that it makes a lot of references that for an English writer is a little confusing, things such as 'Preps' I had to ask someone what that word meant. So, I'm just curious what others think...Is it a very poor attempt at fanfiction or is it a clever troll?
  14. Oh look, Kimmimaru's having yet another rant! Lol. Sorry, I may be getting rather boring but this is something I find very odd indeed... Ronald Billius Weasley (That is an epic middle name isn't it? Lol) from Harry Potter...I have to ask, why do so many people hate on him? I have to say that I absolutely ADORE his character, every time I read the original books he has me in stitches. He's funny and even in the movies Rupert Grint portrays him perfectly (in my head he is now how I imagine Ron when I read the book or even fanfic). I love the way Rowling wrote him, he's a little immature at times but let's be realistic here how many teenage boys are mature? Then you have those who write slash and end up turning the female characters into utter bitches, in Canon they're not (Apart from Bellatrix and perhaps Narcissa) I have read several fics where the girls, such as Ginny Wealsey and Hermione Granger are portrayed as bitchy, nasty and generally not very nice, which completely deviates from known canon. Ginny does stupid stuff, such as write in Tom Riddle's diary, but for gods sake people she's ELEVEN! I ask anyone to truthfully say that they weren't plagued by idiocy at that age, especially when it came to trying to sift through all the hormones racing around your pre-teen brain and confusing everything. Hermione Granger is a little hoity-toity to begin with but Ron and Harry calm her down and as the books progress she becomes a loyal and brilliant friend. Lastly, I have read at least one fanfic where the writer has demonised Dumbledore...once again refusing to take into account that he is only human. He admits it himself in canon and says to Harry that he made a mistake where he was concerned. Everything he does is for a definate reason and yes, it does cause more harm than good in certain cases (Ootp being a prime example) but ultimately if it wasn't for good ol' Dumble's Harry would have been murdered on the spot as soon as he first encountered Voldemort. Ultimately, the main issues I have with demonising these characters is because people seem to prefer to turn Canon characters into some kind of Canon-esque Mary-sue type creatures...which is so, so wrong! It defeats one of Rowlings main theme's in the original books; THE CHARACTERS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE FLAWED! THEY ARE HUMAN BEINGS! Damnit people! No one is perfect, get OVER it. I have had many, many reviews calling my versions of Sirius Black weak...because in my stories I exaggerate his home-life into an extremely abusive one, because in my opinoin no one who hates their family THAT much had a happy home life. He is a very disturbed individule in Canon and this COULD be due to having suffered some form of abuse at home...it is blatent from the reaction of his mother's portrait that at least a part of it was mental abuse. But anyway, back to the reviews, I have written some from the perspective of Sirius as a child, someone has decided to try and tell me that by making Sirius cry I am making him a 'Pussy' (Their words.) Let me just say that as far as I am concerned a six/seven/eight year old being punched in the face is hardly going to have the emotionally control to stop tears...get a grip you idiots. I have researched the mental/physical affects of abuse victims (I am writing and original story that has some abuse in it) and I can deduce that children who are abused will carry the scarring into their own lives. Even Harry Potter is not immune to mental scars, he is tortured by Voldemort in GoF and he is pretty messed up for a while...Alice and Frank Longbottom end up with horrific mental and physical damage from constant torture...and yet obviously I'm STILL wrong to have children cry when they're tortured and abused... No. Just...no. (Lastly, of course, It's MY fucking story thank you, so unless you have some reasons why I should make Sirius ignore the fact that his own father is beating the shit out of him then STFU and get out) Back to my OP, I am still utterly confuzzled as to why people turn the female characters and certain male ones into demons when in Canon they're really not...Perhaps someone could shed some light on this as I have no idea, lol.

    Askew is never a bad thing, in fact, as words go it's actually quite a good one...Askew...yes, I like it. It will now officially be my word of the day!
