I confess: I actually forgot about this because I had so many kind reviews (both pro and con) for my last chapter, but yet another unsigned bitter post tonight reminded me that I had not formally closed the Misery!Guest poll. And we do have a winner for “representative post” that will remain up while the rest are deleted. It is…
9:53 p.m. I’m done reading this story. I ask you NOT to make Eric as Tara’s maker but you didn’t listen and just did what you wanted anyways. You’ve obviously do not care what your readers think, so I will not continue on with this story.
I do kind of like this one because I appreciate the irony that fanfiction is and always has been about a writer “just doing what [they] want” — or what else was the point?
And just a heads up if you read my stories on fanfiction.net: after yet another “attack review” that was (unsurprisingly) unsigned, I’ve decided to make my personal policy on ff.net reviews explicit. You can write whatever you want to, positive or negative, and I’ll leave it up if you sign it. But people who are too cowardly to take responsibility for their viewpoint and hide behind the “Guest” log-in just to attack will have their “review” removed. I don’t see why I have to allow people to act like trolls when I’m doing this for fun. Fanfiction writing doesn’t pay me enough to put up with that. ;-P
And, again, big shout out to those who, even if you disagree with something I do in a story express that disagreement like civil people.
