some advice on fanfic comments
Ok so! If you’re like me and sometimes don’t know what to comment on fics, here are just a few suggestions on what to comment! From one fanfic reader to another… If you struggle with commenting, think of:
- What was your fave moment/part of the fic? (e.g. reaction of a character, a scene etc.)
- What was one of the writer’s headcanons that you really liked? (character’s relationships, location, family, actions etc.!)
- What was your reaction to a particular part? (maybe something sad, cute or scary happened)
- How do you feel after reading? (warm, happy, excited, torn to pieces?)
If you’re still unsure of what to comment or you worry about your comment being too short…. it’s okay! Just commenting that you love the writers work is good! The important thing is showing your support!
Something I advice you not to comment is: “When are you going to update?”. I know you’re excited but it’s not a decent thing to do when someone just posted… A better thing to do is to at least share your thought about the fic first and then ask that! :s
Finally, remember that no one can comment in your stead!! Never think “Loads of other people will comment , I don’t need to”. Because all those imaginary people you’re thinking of won’t comment!!
