Re: A Probably Dumb Question About Posting FanFic

It doesn't really matter. If a story is good people will read it no matter where you put it (just so long as they know about it). I have a story for this fandom on a website that many people have told me they absolutely hate. It still gets thousands of unique visitors a month. So meh. Do whatever yo...

Re: Fanfiction: KS: Rumbling Hearts (Post Hanako Bad Ending)

Catching up with this. Still decently written, with a lot of really nice detail. There are a few more things that make me wonder if perhaps you could use a proofreader, but given that it's on another site I'm too lazy to c'n'p them over here due to their relatively minor nature. I'm not sure what t...

You're cold, unlike that ending.

Re: Fanfiction: KS: Rumbling Hearts (Post Hanako Bad Ending)

Oh boy. That.... uhhhh..... Yeah, that's.... I wonder what the odds of being involved in two catastrophic fires in a lifetime are? Let alone surviving two... Well, considering it's quite obvious the story isn't close to being over I'd say the odds are pretty much close to 100%. That doesn't mean of...

Re: Monomyth: Taro Arai's Story [Update: 1/8/15]

I found myself enjoying this up until it started to diverge too much from the main trio of Taro, Ritsu and Akio (which evidently is also Mutou's first name too according to the wiki, who knew?!) Although it's definitely unorthodox, I found myself regretting how you dropped the potential love triangl...

Re: Fanfiction: KS: Rumbling Hearts (Post Hanako Bad Ending)

Jeez, I thought this was dead by this point. Glad to have been proven wrong, this stuff's great! :D I've gotta say, I still really like this. Sure, it may require that I push myself through some of the "ouch" moments I'm the kind of person who finds it hard to read those kind of misfortunes , but I...

Re: Fanfiction: KS: Rumbling Hearts (Post Hanako Bad Ending)

Sorry for the long break between updates, I'm sure you guys know how it is. It was really hard for me to write this chapter for some reason, which is strange since it's still following the plot outline I originally wrote.

Chapter 5

Re: Tips for fanfiction writers (that means YOU)

:evil: *Jumps into car and drive at full speed to mexico* See ya! Anyway. Another tip I would give is perhaps write out a rough skeleton of the story, or perhaps even write out an entire act before you post the chapter. With the first one it gives you a clear idea of what you want to do and can kee...

Perhaps I got lost reading between the lines. I took his statement as being defensive of the first person narrative, when on my part no offense was meant.

It happens. XD

Re: Tips for fanfiction writers (that means YOU)

One thing I've noticed, particularly popular with people who haven't written much, is an over reliance on first person narrative for their works. I think that's a matter of taste. As you've pointed out, both first and third person narrative have their strengths, and writers of classic works across ...

Re: Tips for fanfiction writers (that means YOU)

Ah. Okay. I think I was reading the previous post wrong. I'm thinking about doing something like that with my current running fanfiction and since the OC is blind I think I could easily swing something like that. Thank you for the example btw. That's another classic example - someone acting off, or...

Re: Tips for fanfiction writers (that means YOU)

Yes. The unreliable narration. I apologize I should have been clearer. There are quite a few examples out there on Google I think, so I'll leave the searching for exact passages up to you. However, I will propose a thought experiment. Imagine trying to write something from the first person perspect...
