    Ever feel like apologizing for a story?

    First, I have never felt like apologizing for anything that I posted (just horribly embarrassed at my earlier work). If someone doesn't like it, I'm not bothered by that or the flame they leave behind (or the lack of reviews). One, I write for myself and two, I know that there are people out there that would and do like it. I love writing and, like my art, it helps to relieve my tension, anger, frustration, etc. My first fanfiction site was fanfiction.net and I really loved it there, until I found AFF. Here, there's no 'line' to cross and I have no limitations on myself. I don't have to worry about some young person reading my story without them realizing that it's adult. They venture forth of their own volition. This is the perfect place to let my desires and whatnot run wild without worrying about the repercussions of some underage reader 'accidently' clicking on my story. As long as there are correct warnings on the work, then there is no need for anyone to apologize. It's the reader's choice to read something, if they don't like it, then that's their problem and it has nothing to do with you. Most people are close-minded. It's a fact. You are on an adult fanfiction site so I feel that it's safe to post anything you write. If the readers here can't be mature then there's no reason for you to feel regret about writing something and posting it. If someone reads something that they didn't like, I see that as their problem not mine. Ultimately, and I believe this to be true for every writer, what you write is for you and not for other's to read and like or hate. You shouldn't feel neither embarrassment or ashamed because you're trying something new with your writing. The more styles you begin to experiment with, the more you will grow. And isn't that what everyone aims for? Just remember that you are on a site where there are people who will read what you write and post and will like it, so don't worry and don't apologize.

    Profile Idea

    I was wondering if it was possible to make the text link clickable on a member's profile page, under the Information section. I see it under the person's name when they post on the forums and I think it would be useful on their profile page as well. Thanks for your hard work! yukihimedono

    Need Help

    I'm in desperate need of help with writing spells for a fiction I'm working on. I have some, but I'm not sure if I even like them, so I'm hesitant to post them. If anyone is interested, please let me know! I left general information below. Title: Ruin Explorers Fandom: Ruin Explorers Rating: Adult+ I have two chapters posted but there is more that is available should it be needed.
  12. *gets on knees and bows* Thank you, Gods, for all the hard work and wisdom you have graced us with. *bows* Your diligence and contributions do not go unnoticed. *pulls out a knife and goes after the goat* Come back! *huff huff* No blood sacrifice today, but tomorrow definitely. LOL! Thanks!

    Reviews anyone?

    First, I don't plan on advertising this in anything I write or post here, especially in any chapters I put up (save this thread). In fact, I don't want the readers to even know that I'm doing something like this. Kind of like a blind test, the testers don't know they are participating. I only plan to do this twice a year, since I already have a heavy workload. Hence, only two people would get a short oneshot or drabble. And if I don't get any reviewers then this won't go farther than here. Part of this is to connect with my readers again but I also want to try other fandoms and whatnot.Does this sound plausible?
  16. Anyone else watching The Borgias or Game of Thrones?

      Yes it is. It's got a great storyline. My husband picked the book up.

      I've read the whole series, a few times :D

      Did you like it? I'm thinking about picking it up, but there are already so many books I haven't read. XD

    Reviews anyone?

    Exactly! Re-posting my question.... Just curious about what the collective thought is. I was considering offering the ones that reviewed a reward, like a oneshot or drabble. I've got a couple of ideas on how to pick the reviewer, but I'm wondering if anyone else thinks this is a good idea or if I should completely throw it out?

    Ruin Explorers

    Hi, I wanted to let anyone who is reading the story know that I will be using this thread for any updates (or extras) pertaining to Ruin Explorers. So here's an 'extra' from me. This is the map that I made and am using as a reference for my fic. I made a folder @ photobucket that I will be putting stuff in.

    LOL! Exactly. I think we've entered the Twilight Zone. *cue the music*
  20. Why does my muse hit me when I'm delirious from lack of sleep? I've been writing non-stop for over two hours, but I want to go to bed and snuggle with my husband.

      yukihimedono

      Ah, yes, that would be worse.

      Rumour has it that's why Homer's wife was always insisting he spent his evenings writing.

    Why do you think that is?
  23. Going to see Death of a Salesman @ TheatreWorks tonight. It's been a while since I've seen it.

      Great play... now onto Portal 2 and more procrastinating.

    Reviews anyone?

    I found the perfect example. I've been obsessed with Bones ff lately, so just ignore my picks. The highlighted ones just went on my to-read list, LOL! Brown Skirt and Leather Seat: 11,203 hits and ONLY 2 reviews. It got +10 but something is seriously wrong here. The Sight of Her: 6,598 hits and NO reviews with a +5. That's half of the first one. Human beings can be hard to understand sometimes. And, by the way, I don't pick fanfiction to read based on the works stats. I pick based on coupling and summary.

    Reviews anyone?

    It's nice to know that there are others who feel the same way I do. I'm much like DemonGoddess. When I have time to read something, I review it. My to-read bookmark list is so, so very long. trudy, One of the things that's keeps me going is that (most of the time) I don't have a set ending, just a vague idea of what I want - so I end up writing and finishing things just so I know how it ends. A good example of this is my Inu-fic, An Unexpected Love. I know that seems silly and as the author, I should know where the story will go and end but sometimes, it's just more fun that way. I find it exciting (does that make me a dork?) and I use a lot of silly things; word prompts, places, actions, colors, events, anything and everything I can think of. I have a lot of OC and original fiction. AUL started out as a short five-chapter, lemon-sex-filled story. I was frustrated with another story and just wanted to write something that was completely useless and made no sense what-so-ever. I wanted a break. Unfortunately for me, it became a ridiculous hit. I extended the storyline after talking to a couple of friends, but it's still going through a slow revision process. The problem is, my muse is fickle and flighty. It comes and goes when it wants. Thus, my several oneshots, which I don't post anymore due to AUL. Ironic? Enough ranting and complaining. What I want is to try to bring this to the attention of the readers. I'd like it to change, as I'm sure other writers would too. I don't mean to threaten them or put a long AN berating them but I was considering offering the ones that reviewed a reward, like a oneshot or drabble. I've got a couple of ideas on how to pick the reviewer, but I'm wondering if anyone else thinks this is a good idea or if I should completely throw it out? I'm not sure if it will increase reviewers but it might help me through word-of-mouth. What's sad is that the quote below is on the main page (multiple times) and it's like it doesn't phase people. Do they even read the news? "Please remember that this site is free to use. As such, the authors receive nothing for their efforts, except reviews. Do let them know that you read their stories, please! I'm sure they'll appreciate hearing from you!" - Apollo
