To all the silent readers: there are authors who abandon their stories because they don’t get comments ( good && bad ). You know, sometimes they feel as if their stories aren’t liked by their readers because of this…
I enjoy commenting. Especially for fics that don’t have a lot of attention (you know, those ones that only have one-two comments?) . I put a lot of time and effort into commenting because I know what it feels like to get a heart-felt comment and I think, if authors actually put in the time to come up with a story, they should be applauded with a comment that has a lot of thought put into it.
Could AFF writers stop glorifying rape? It may be fiction, but rape is highly triggering and I despise the way some younger writers handle it like a gateway event to stealing Oppa’s heart. Rape isn’t sugar plums and lollipops. It’s serious business. Please regard it as such.
Do you know what it feels like not receiving any comments? It feels like you’ve been telling something important, something they have told you they wanted to hear but in the end, nobody was listening. That’s what it feels like and it hurts.
Sometimes when I write, and I have a tragic or dark storyline, I can’t help but laugh in glee when someone says they cried or is devastated. Like, I get so much joy that a fic I wrote can affect them so. Am I evil? Maybe.
I hate how shallow AFFers can be. For instance, when Xiu Min had his chubby cheeks, no one gave a fuck about him. Suddenly, with the Wolf comeback, they’re like “Omo, Oppa! Mine~” Even after that realization, people don’t give a shit because he doesn’t look as good as Luhan or Kris. All they care about is who looks the best in the group and that “they” end up with Oppa. Like seriously, there’s hardly any love for the underrated members because they’re not as “hot” or “pretty” as “Oppa”.
Fan fiction. FICTION meaning unrealistic. So what if somebody writes about how the Korean school system works and it’s wrong? It’s fiction. Sure it could be realistic in some aspects but it doesn’t mean it has to be on point on every single fucking thing.
