Question & Blah

What are feeds?

Also, I wish I could just go balls out on fic reviews. I'm so sick of reading crappy fic that others rave over. *sigh* And what's worse is that the really crappy ones are usually way longer than the good ones. I mean why is the crappy fic like 30 chapters, when the good fic is lucky to make it to five?

I wish I could be like this fic reviewer that could tell people what I really think of their fics, and they like me for it. I wish I could like help/tell people how to make their fics better/not be so crappy. I could totally do that.

Would anyone actually like a person who tells the absolute bloody raw truth about fics? Like even if it was really harsh?



I'm fine with a "this sucks" comment as long as it's followed up with "because ...". Constructive critisism is cool. Flaming is not.

Flaming is yucky, as is absolute undeserving praise.
*nods* I know what you mean.

I'm very sensitive when it comes to criticism over certain things, but concrit is better than praise sometimes.
*nod* That's a good policy. :)
It is all in how you do it, as the two above me stated.

I believe in honestly, hell even if you don't want to to go into why the story sucks, but I've been told on more than one occassion that you can't do it, because we must all play nice. Let me get crass her...fuck being nice. If I spend my time reading a fiction and it SUCKS, I should be able to state such and be done with it. If I don't want to throw in my 2 cents about why it sucks, that should also be my perrogative. Because really, when someone does not use a beta and writes dribble that makes no sense or has not plot and doesn't warn you...to me all bets should be off.

Oops...I rambled...
I hate playing nice sometimes, but yeah I don't want to end up with no friends and being flamed every day.

Yes, It's like, I'll tell people if I think my work is sucky, so you can totally opt not to read it. And I know most of my fic isn't even that good, let-alone praise-worthy, but at least I don't try to pass it off as a masterpiece in desguise.

In a lot of ways I'm super thankful that I was brought up on crappy boyband fic written by 13 year olds, sometimes I don't even need to read the whole first chapter of a story to know it will suck. (One of the reasons I hate het-the 13 y.o. fic writers.) It's harder with slash, most slash fic is written by those over the age of 18, so chances are the sucky fic will be less technical and more plot-sucky.

Bah-Sorry to go off... You ramble and I will too. We'll ramble together. :)
I don't offer concrit unless it's in a setting where the author has specifically asked for it--I'm beta-ing something for her, it's in club_joss, or the fic post specifically asks for concrit. That being said, I would tell a good friend if I noticed a typo or obvious error in her fic.

I also don't give out false good fb either, though. I don't squee over shit I don't like. LOL
*nod* You rock when it comes to beta'ing or giving feedback. :)

I also don't squee over stuff that sucks, usually I just don't comment with something I don't like, that way no feelings are stepped on, but the squeeing doesn't happen. *shrug*

Thanks hun. :)
