  1. I don't think I have a trigger word in that respect. I do get irked if a certain word is overused. When I read a sex-fic, I don't want to read the word "cock" 15 times in one paragraph. I don't care if you're referring to rooster sex. Vocabulary moderation is important. I think my trigger word in fanfiction is "defiantly". There are way too many instances of "defiantly" being used in place of "definitely" and I can neither understand nor tolerate this.
  2. Several resume formats have already been outlined and pinned. Read them. Then edit your post and answer the questions about your experience as a beta and your specific fandoms.
  3. Or.... - Log in to your control panel. - Select the archive from the drop-down menu on the left and click GO. - Click Edit Story on the left menu. - Select your story on the first menu and Edit Details on the second menu. - Type your tags into the Summary field. When you add tags when first submitting a story, they're automatically added to the summary. When editing a story, they're still there in the Summary field. So it's just a matter of typing them into the existing summary.
  4. 72-hour insomnia jags and 3-4 hours of sleep every 24-hour period are normal for me. I make it up by getting 16 hours of sleep per day on a random weekend (but not on both weekend days). This is what I get for being a night owl with a busy day schedule. I never did have the ability to take a nap unless I'm really ill. It frustrated my mother to no end when I was five years old. It still frustrates her at times.
  5. Perfect area for the question. I think it's actually been asked here before. Or was it the question about male arousal? I'll check and get back to you. I guess I'll try to give the general description right now, at least about how it feels for me. I feel this warm lazy flush in my brain, and it travels down the back of my neck and down my spine until it hits my lumbar. It doesn't feel like a fever or a sauna or muscle pain. It's like that warmth you get when you're outside in a temperature slightly warmer than you're used to - pleasant but not sweaty or hazy. There's also this light wamth and tingling in my lower abdomen and it travels down. Sometimes there's a mild clenching in the abdomen. It always turns into a mild clenching in my vagina. But it feels nice when combined with the feeling in my spine. I've heard that a lot of women start breathing faster, but not me. I start taking long, deep, even breaths through my nose, and sometimes I just close my eyes lightly. Not because I'm telling myself to - it just happens. It looks like I'm meditating. I guess it's because the first stages of arousal calm me instead of exciting me. Not that I'm complaining - it makes the stress go away and it's easier to hide in public. This goes on for about 5 minutes. Then my heartbeat starts to even out, but the moment that happens, things start to change again. My adrenaline starts to rush and there's this weird pressure in my temples. That pressure turns into a stiffness at the back of my neck. This causes me to start breathing out through my mouth, which still looks like meditation. The warmth in my abdomen increases, and the tingling starts to travel down, making me clench more. That's when the wetness starts. And when the wetness starts, my abdomen gets warmer, and my neck relaxes a bit even though my temples still hurt. And it feels like the pressure in my temples is slowly being released down my spine and travelling straight down, making the warmth and clenching more intense, and releasing more wetness. Eventually my spine starts feeling a little too warm. When my spine finally starts to feel unpleasantly hot, my orgasm hits. I could swear that my heart stopped beating, and I actually end up holding my breath for a moment. When the orgasm finally dies down, my head feels totally relaxed, my abdomen is relaxed, and my spine feels slightly cool (pleasantly so). Unfortunately, my heart's beating a little too fast and my breathing is slightly loud (but still normal). For some strange reason, there's no flush on my skin. I turn orange during a fever, and my nose and cheeks turn red from extreme heat and cold, but I don't seem to blush during arousal or sex or an orgasm. I think an important part of the orgasm for me is my hyper-awareness. I've always had a sensitive nose and hearing. When I'm in arousal, both senses actually become sharper. That's why I can actually hear my own heartbeat. I kid you not. I once had a partner check my pulse during the whole event. I can also smell myself, and apparently others around me. There was this one awkward situation where a friend and I were screening an adult film for a later showing (within a group). We were sitting about 5 feet away from each other, but I could smell this strange bitterness coming from the other side of the room, and he could smell a strange sweetness. We both rushed to the back of the room for snacks at the same time, had full body contact (we were both standing near the wrong side of the table and ended up trying to lean past each other too far), and figured out what the smell was. Since we were all close friends, he and I discussed it first (after the movie discussion), then with the rest of the group. No one else noticed any strange scents or heard footsteps in the hall (and his hearing is actually slightly weak). I'd say with the exception of the lack of blushing and the even breathing, it's a fair match to what the general female orgasm feels like. If you want something on fingering or oral (received from both males and females) let me know.
  6. I have no idea what's going on but it may have something to do with this. I have no points on hand or in the bank despite the fact that I had purchased a bank account after the upgrade. I don't think I've been attacked because I have no PMs stating that. I've opted out just to be on the safe side. If it does have something to do with this, can someone let me know? The points on hand weren't a major issue, but I had more than 100 million points in the bank and I consider that a major loss.
  7. I speak on behalf of the young when I say this. I'm 20, I've dated younger people, and will continue to date younger people. Right now, I hold the window at 5 years, but that can change in the future. Being a teenager doesn't exactly mean that you'll lack common sense on the level that she has exhibited. I've met and am friends with plenty of smart and sensible teenagers. I'm not going to touch the haircut argument. I'd definitely give her the "first kiss" argument. If she didn't initiate the kiss, then it's sorta OK. If it's her best friend and it was a one-time incident, I'd let it go. The only thing I'd be worried about is her state of sobriety. If she was under-age at the time, then I'd be concerned if either she or her friend were drunk or high at the party. It may be a little "parental", but it comes with the love. You say she's still in high school. I'm not going to automatically assume that she's under 18. Either way, I think being "older and wiser" may put you at a quandary at times. When you worry about your SO, you try to work things out with him/her. In plenty of relationships, you may end up in a position where you have to work things out for her at certain points. Especially if she's lost, confused, naïve, or just plain needs help. It's not a matter of control - it happens in every healthy relationship. But because of your age, you may come off as stodgy and lecturing whenever you try to do this. Being labelled a pervert doesn't help matters any. In this case, you might want to go through the basics of artist/model protocol with her. Just for future reference. Do it in the evening after an afternoon stroll through an art museum. Give it a week or two then discuss and set firm boundaries on your relationship. She should have the ability to stick to those boundaries, including holding her own against others. It's part of what a serious relationship entails, no matter what your age. I've tried my best to help. I can only wish you the best of luck, and ask you to consider a break in the future, if only to allow her time to grow without you as a boyfriend (friends is still OK). She just may need it.
  8. There's something very wrong with the "shirt off" scenario, but I don't need to re-hash it too much because everyone else has already done it (the re-hashing, not the "too much") From what you're telling me, there are several things that I'm going to assume. None are truly meant to offend. First of all, I don't think it's about a lack of common sense. You've known her for three years before you dated her. If she lacked common sense, you'd know it. Perhaps part of the problem is that you may come off as lacking assertiveness. It's great that you want to do everything in her power to make her happy. Do you have any idea what I'd do for a partner like that? Being supportive doesn't necessarily mean letting your partner walk all over you. That's what she seems to be doing. If she truly had an interest in art, she'd know more about the artistic type at this point. Barring that, she should know enough to ask for the artist's credentials before making any decisions. That's part of common sense. I understand female liberation. I agree that a woman should have the right to make this type of choice without her partner's express permission. Saying that, I don't believe that anyone, man or woman, should exercise that right to the fullest immediately. If she thought that you'd be OK with it, "being the artistic type and all", she would've left, discussed it with you, then go back with her own final decision. The fact that she didn't is a red flag. It's an act of total emotional disregard. May I add something a bit more personal? I'm bisexual - I've dated women before, and I've met her type. They're always the same. It's not exactly about you being a guy. They do whatever they feel like, inform you as an afterthought, then complain that you're the one being insensitive. The clincher: "If you really love me, you'll support me." It's a classic sign of domestic control. When a woman controls her partner, she doesn't resort to the physical - she resorts to her wiles and twists the concept of feminism to use as a shield, marring the reputation of strong women everywhere in the process. For example, I wouldn't push anyone to out themselves to their parents. But if I'm your partner, you have to let me in on the little fact before I meet them. If you have a fake boyfriend, it'd be nice to meet him, but that's totally your call. I trust you. If you choose to go beyond kissing or boyfriend status with said guy, you definitely need to make sure I'm fine with it before you do it. I refuse to date an engaged woman. The same concept applies to any third partner on any side of the relationship no matter who I'm dating, be it man or woman. It's all about agreed-upon degrees of acceptance. If she made it clear that she models for artists and told you that she may be called upon to go into various states of undress for the sake of it, and all this before she started this particular assignment, she wouldn't be at fault. Because she hadn't, and because this isn't typically acceptable behavior in a healthy relationship, she is at fault. And I don't like to assign fault. If you want to fix this, don't stand for it. The question I've asked is one that should bother both of you. "If you truly believed that I'd be OK with it, why didn't you let me know before you did it? Or didn't you have your phone with you?" There's something to be said for trust, but there's something to be said for initial instincts as well, especially the ones that persist. My advice: take a break from your relationship and try to evaluate things without letting your feelings get in the way. Constant discussion may fix this one issue (very likely to her primary satisfaction rather than yours), but I don't think it'll prevent similar episodes in the future. I know you said she's your friend, but "friend" and "(boy/girl)friend" are two different roles and it's not unusual for the same person to act very differently in each role.
  9. I like all accents. However, I don't like heavy accents because they're hard to understand. I think the light touch is pleasing to the ear. For example, if someone rolls their "r"s just a tad strongly when speaking English but are otherwise clear, it can be quite nice. Mild Italian and Hindi accents, amongst others, are pleasing because of the musical lilt. I'm American, but there have been a few times where people go "really?". Ever since I was a little kid, my enunciation has always been clear and precise. Fortunately the flow isn't clipped or stilted. For this reason, some people think I'm actually British. Frankly, I don't get that. The British dialect isn't always that clear (not in the mood to quote, but check with Knorg). I've also gotten "French-Canadian without the slur". OK, I admit that French-Canadians tend to slur their speech a bit (and they're quite sober, mercibcp). Hell, they do it in their native French often enough, so why not in English? (I don't mean that as an insult - I say it because I interact with them often enough to state it as an observation). Odder still, I don't get any Kelsey Grammer comments. Apparently, I don't sound pompous enough to warrant it. I swear I don't understand people at times. The other half of the time, it's "Americans are pompous but the accent lacks culture". Which is it?
  10. How about looking up guides on performing improv in theater or some basic round-robin exercises? Both are closely related to role-playing. Improv allows more room for silliness, especially in comedy; but improv is basically about learning how to interact with fellow performers when creating a story without a script. You get a basic plot or situation and that's it. It's up to the performers to create the story without discussing a game plan in advance. Round robin is the same thing, but even newcomers have general experience in writing stories so guides on that wouldn't be too extensive on the basics. Once you have a basic idea of what to teach, you can ask her to do a short one-on-one RP involving original characters. You assign the situation and tell her that the characters you two create for yourselves are the only ones allowed in the game. No random third characters. You have to finish the game in 15 minutes (you can't get into too much trouble that way). It'll give you room to guide her character without taxing you.
  11. I find these rules daunting and the rule about Sues/Stus is a bit harsh (though true). Role-playing is often about creating a fantasy version of yourself. How does one do that without straying into MS territory? Role-playing is about interaction, but you tell us not to control other characters. "Controlling" a character can also mean dictating their actions when they interact with your character. How about being clearer on how one can include/interact with another character in their own lines without "controlling" said character? I'd add this: Role-playing is a game. It's about relaxing, having fun, and interacting with others. Try to be respectful to other characters. You don't have to like them (especially not an official enemy), but you do have to be respectful. Don't center the entire story around your own character. Write about your own character's actions and interactions, but keep your character on an even keel with everyone else. It strikes a balance. Consistency is important. Assign your character certain traits and stick with them. Don't change another character without permission. In role-play, it's important that all of the players are familiar with the basics of all of the characters, and doing a sudden turnabout for no plausible reason in the middle of a game ruins it by throwing everyone off. I have more experience role-playing as an improv theater exercise than I do in chat rooms, but I find these above rules to be very important - especially the one about consistency.
  12. When editing my own stories, I fear that I may have OCD. I edit and check each draft three times. Always exactly three times. And yet it doesn't feel like work. I think the only time editing feels like work is when I'm editing someone else's story. It's one thing to fix spelling and grammar. There are times when a word is repeated too often or the syntax of a sentence is screwed up. Re-wording feels like an actual struggle because I don't want to take away the author's voice/tone/flavor. Otherwise, no, it doesn't feel like work.
  13. Click on the category drop-down menu and select the category (even if there's only one category available). This will make the sub-category menu show up properly.
  14. I'm going to add to this as I find more issues. - I'm locking the resume format thread and keeping this one open. If you have any questions about posting a resume, you can ask by either sending me a PM or posting to this thread. - When posting a resume, start a new topic for it. Remember to answer all of the questions. - If you wish to ask a beta to look over your work, contact the beta via PM. Do not add your request to the thread. This will result in an official warning. You may also post your request in Request a Beta as a new topic.

    I've got the same post-data pop-up. It doesn't do anything in terms of publishing. However, when using the text field, the chapter's content is completely erased when you hit the back button. When uploading a file, the address field is empty. Despite that, the content is all there when you use the forward button, but not when you click "Preview" again. So yeah, there's a problem in terms of editing before publishing.
