    "Nonsense reviews"

    Yeah, those were the types of links you didn’t want only a condom for protection, you’d need EVERYTHING covered in latex before you even dare to click.

    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.

    "Nonsense reviews"

    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 Stories

    “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.

    AFF Holiday Party 2020

    Sorry if I gave the wrong impression. Yes, it’d be an original story if I write a Halloween/Holiday story. The debate is whether to take the time to do that, or keep tormenting Harry in my fanfic Now, I suppose, there’s nothing wrong with somebody leading a halloween/holiday round robin in one of the fandoms.

    The Outrageous Claim Thread

    I can say something so self-contradictory that it’s not self-contradictory at all.

    Ok, so I was away from home for a while, but we have some more reviews for WitS from @GeorgeGlass! This is definitely an area where the compressed timeframe of the story affected how fast it moved. This whole thing takes place over about a week, and I had a hard time believing Eparlegna would wait too long to make his move. Given that, I definitely ended up having Luzurial come to her decision faster than if the story had taken place over, say, a month. I was definitely aware of what you’re talking about, which was why I stretched the timeline out by one more day, so that Luzurial had around an entire day to think about what she was going to do, rather than, say, a few hours. Thank you! That kind of came from JayDee. In Whore of Heaven, the barrier is described as looking vaguely like smoke, so I figured there might be a sense of that as it expanded, and with the agents driving away from it I was kind of reminded of the pyroclastic flow scene from Dante’s Peak. Correct. I didn’t think I’d be able to create a Sloth monster that was actually threatening, but figured out I could make it work if it sapped the energy from people around it. The Gluttony creature you only hear about, from the elevator shaft, actually has a little bit of extra story behind it. I remember talking in the review thread for one of @InvidiaRed’s stories about insect mouthparts and the proboscis, and posting by way of example a wheelbug up close to show it. Invidia was like “Well THAT’s terrifying.” I couldn’t resist having a creature design with a similar organ and have someone else take Invidia’s “Well SCREW that!” attitude toward it. Thank you again! I was rather fond of that one. *shakes fist at the sky* JAAAAAYDEEEEEE!

    Ok, so, I’m working on a few different things, and I just now happened to go to my gmail account and oh crap @GeorgeGlass left a WitS review two days ago and I didn’t notice it! Well, let’s rectify that. Thank you! The “castrate him with a spork” thing made me chuckle a bit as well. I mentioned this in the AN, but the tentacle scene was the first one I’d ever actually written, so I was definitely nervous. The positive reception it’s gotten has been very encouraging. Finally, I’m glad you enjoyed the little bit of payback Hobbes gets. I knew what I was going to do to Barbara, and I just kind of wanted to give her...I don’t know, something, some little moment where she gets back at him at least a little. Glad you’re enjoying the story so far, and I hope it continues to be fun for you!

    Introducing characters

    (whistles you away from my potter fanfic...948k and nowhere near done...) BW is trying to lead you down the path of better character building, less “smut-only” story, which is definitely one I try to pursue myself. Obviously, the shorter the story, the less of that character buildup will be in the actual prose, however, it’s useful for guiding how the character responds to situations, especially when it’s out-of-ordinary responses (ie, I had a grown man breakdown & cry when he saw my teenage MC naked because it reminded him of discovering his own son dead from carbon monoxide poisoning – same MC who loved oysters but had the allergic effect of giving him a bad case of the runs). As to introducing those characters, I’ll typically give a distinguishing physical feature or two (ie. hair color) though sometimes it’ll simply be “the waiter” even if I know they’ve got magical birthmarks on their tosh. Having a warstory or three in their bio-sheet is good too, but don’t forget to actually write the story you intended to write!

    Throw your ideas in here!

    Lord of the Rings meets Harvey. Early in the march out of Rivendell, Merry goes behind a tree to take a leak, meets a 7 foot tall rabbit who warns him to be wary of the creature in the waters outside Moria. Every so often thru the adventure Merry just seems to know shit, shit he could not know, SHOULD not know. No one ever sees the giant rabbit, and keep scoffing, but the warnings keep coming true... and SOMEONE is certainly stealing the pipe weed....
