Hey sorry this is a weird question but when people give you reviews do you like getting concrit or do you prefer more positive reviews?

So here’s my general motto with reviews. (And this is what I practice when LEAVING them, for the record):

Often, when people are constructively criticizing, it’s about a little plot detail or characterization detail that they didn’t really like that much. Which is sort of more of… I’m not gonna say a personal problem, but it’s just… a little nit picky. Because the truth is, the author isn’t going to go back and change a line of dialogue that you felt was ooc or rewrite a plot point that you didn’t like. That’s not useful.

Here’s what is useful: Gently letting an author know when they are consistently doing something wrong. For example, a punctuation error that you see consistently throughout this fic or a grammar error that you’re seeing a lot of in all of their fics. Maybe you think that they should use more description, or that their dialogue can get too long winded or uninteresting. Find a nice, warm way to correct them. Be sure to compliment them a lot as well.

Overall I think that fanfic is a really fun and personal thing and I try to always to make a writer feel good every time I leave a review. When an author posts a fanfic, they’re not asking for a beta reader or a critique partner. This is their final draft and they’re probably not gonna go back and edit it. So tell them your favorite scene, your favorite line, your favorite thing about the characterization. They probably spent hours on this piece of work and they’re stressed about people not liking it and they just want to feel that the time they put into it was worth it.

However, new-grad women were initially offered almost $10,000 less in base salary than their male peers — before any negotiation. The difference is statistically significant (p-value < 0.01). Upon closer inspection, offers from large tech companies account for the difference. These large, public tech companies offer new-grad women over $10k less than men for new-grad positions (p-value < 0.038).

summary:  Louis gasped. “Are you straight? Oh, I’m sorry, man. You should’ve just told me; I would’ve left you alone.”
“No, no, that’s not it,“ Harry said. "I like guys. I definitely like guys.”
“OK…”
“Louis, I’m ace.”
Louis snorted. “Kind of full of yourself, aren’t you?”

Or, the one where Louis is a frat boy who likes to hook up and Harry is someone who doesn’t hook up ever.
