soooo idk if you take criticism, but i promise this comes from a good place. i've been reading a couple of your fics recently, and the only problem i've had with them has been the excessive use of parentheses. they're supposed to be used as a way to add afterthoughts in a way that doesn't seem intrusive or out of place, but after constant use they become quite grating. please don't be offended by this, i greatly enjoy your fics! your writing is wonderful!
