    Wanted to add this, cause I just read it in a fic.


    I hate when authors do that thing like person A says you're an asshole and then person B says, "Am not"

    So it goes:

    A: you're an asshole
    B: Am not
    A: Are to
    B: Am not
    A: Are to

    And it just goes back and forth like a retarded fucking cartoon. STOP the writer is the fucking asshole. Its not funny, cute, or entertaining. It is a waste of time and frustrates the fuck out of people. I have stopped reading fics over this.

    People tried this in first grade. It didn't work then, it won't work now. Leave this shitty gimmick at home and never speak of it again lest I take out my spatula and bitch-slap you to death with it. :twisted:

    Peeve: When an author says "I need xx reviews before I'll post the next chapter!"

    For fucks sake, if you're going to write for reviews, don't write at all.

    Here is my pet Peeve...

    Stories that don't get updated.

    Have you ever read that big juicy 250k word story only to realize it hasn't been updated in a year and there is no ending? Don't you just want to throttle the author for not writing "on hiatus" or "cancelled" in the summary?

    I know I do

    lol :)

    I mean is it to much to ask of an author to update the summary? It's why I don't write fanfiction, between doing the work for the 6 AP courses this year, keeping myself in good enough shape to play soccer and rugby, and hanging out with friends I don't have the time to write my fanfics and actually update them regularly.

    Wow. Um, I feel like such an underachiever. Hmm, well FUCK YOU GIOVANNI!

    I didn't trust from the beginning. I knew you weren't homeless and drunk like the rest of us. :looks at Giovanni with disappointment: You don't belong here Giovanni. You bathe too often.

    All of us here are in the upper echelons of society. It is YOU who needs to bathe more!

    We may have covered this already, but I know we didn't provide examples!

    -Authors that give piddly sized chapters, with no real content at all, that skip around all over the damned place, and then act like they did YOU a favor by humbling themselves to post their random key bashings.

    suuuure
