| Dollface Dead 1/5/07 . chapter 10
Dollface Dead is NOT dead, heh.
Sorry for not reviewing. I went into a prolonged depression, locked myself into my room, and demanded that all food be deposited neatly between the space between where the door doesn't quite meet the floor.
Just kidding. I was just lazy.
I liked the Rant you did about horrible paragraphs in this section. You're so right, though I myself am guilty of overusing exclamation points, heh. I try to make my limit three and check to make sure they all develped into "!" and not "1".
I also hate it when people use the same word, especially a really common, easily replaced word, over and over again. Whenever I reread the crap I write, I always, ALWAYS check for this because it's a huge pet peeve of mine. Example:
Cindy stepped towards the DOOR to the mansion. She considered OPENING the DOOR, but the DOOR was very scary. the DOORhandle had the face of a lion carved into it, but she knew she would have to OPEN it to find her lost dog, Trixy, who had ran inside the DOOR when it was OPENED. She cautiously OPENED the DOOR, and stepped inside the DOOR. Then the DOOR shut behind her.
Does that not just make you want to scream?
Hope you had a Merry-whatever holiday you celebrate. I know I did. I got bagpipes :D.

i hate those block paragraphs. i hate when people use OMG for 'oh my god' or, like 'watever' instead of 'whatever'. if i pick up a story to read on fictionpress, and its good but i cant stand the grammar, i just gotta let it go. i honestly dont know why people do that. dont they take a class called 'english language arts' or at least some class in which proper english grammar is taught? okay, i mean, i did read one story that was written by a girl in spain, i think, who knew english but wasnt the best at grammar, but it wasnt horrible and neither was the story. that was my one exception. but other than that...
yeah, i couldnt stand the new layout at first, but now ive grown to it, and im okay, breathing normally again. ha. i really dont think fictionpress will ever be cleansed of the fanfictions lying around. i keep on catching these random harry potter fics bu this one author who wont, no matter how many people tell her, put her stuff on fanfiction. oh, well, i guess.
you know, when i have time, which will probably be during the summer, and i cant find any good updates, and fictionpress is dead because the authors all have something better to do than write, im gonna come back to this and look through the review sections to see what i can find. some stories did look good to me, but i barely have time right now for much. i mean it did take forever for me to get to Rants, Raves, and Reviews, because of schoolwork. but yeah.
keep on writing -Ss.

| xpoisonedx 12/3/06 . chapter 10
That paragraph you wrote...burned out my eyes x-x (the one in the rant)
good work...keep it up (and it must've taken a lot of effort to keep yourself from fixing the mistakes)

Please point out to me a case in which two exclamation points could be simultaneously used with any degree of legitimacy.
| Wherrtle Smyth 11/9/06 . chapter 9
I like your format here, but I'm kind of confused as to the reason there are so many reviews on this...
| C Fusilier 11/8/06 . chapter 9
I was just kind of skimming through your chapters and your reviews... kind of checking your stuff out... and all I have to tell you is WOW. You're kissing a lot of ass with these reviews. I didn't read one bad review. Hopefully I missed it and it'll bite me later.
If not, I hope you get eaten by deranged monkeys.
| Olivine 11/8/06 . chapter 9
eh, minor addition, to the story thing. in my opinon, anyways. the rave wasnt much of a rave, though i could see why youd consider it one, lol, and the review is, well... my story. but i agree fully with rant. theres this one story im reading which DOES take place in NYC, but the dialogue for the character doesnt match their personality. although all the characters talk like that, so i guess its just how the author talks, or something. i tried mentioning it to the author, but they didnt really respond or anything, so im like 'okay, whatever, its your story' (in my head, of course), and just kept on reading, trying my best to avoid the parts where the dialogue just plained annoyed me because it didnt match. but yeah. theres my own rant. and thanks for putting my story there in the reviews section, even though i asked you to :)
keep on writing; im awaiting the next addition! -Ss.

So far, I have met only one of your requirements... (I USED to meet both... and I will again! Just watch me!) ::runs off to meet requirements #2::

hey hey. i simply adore what you're doing here... and i'm sorry for the lack of capitalizing here. i'm lazy like that i gather, even if it just takes a jiffy for me to press the shift button. hmm, maybe i'm just being unformal. anyhow, i just though i'd give you props for this. it is unbelievably true - the eye colour, hair lenght/ chapter lenght, etc. eye colours like that don't usually occur... i happen to have hazel/brown eyes depending on the light and dark brown hair to match. it's all about genes... ooh! don't you hate it when characters look nothing like their parents or siblings. it's as if they popped out of no where, with no apparent resemblance to the family. maybe authors think about beauty more than reality, but it annoys the hell out of me.
copying does too. people can't get ideas of their own these days. when an assassin story pops up, many seem to follow. same thing with forbidden love, vampires, jock-goth storys... and even love-hate. it's unbelievable. some people think that love can occur after 2 weeks of a relationship. God, maye you're just reducing the person to a mere object with all that idolizing and lust, but darling, love doesn't happen like that. gah (
hrm, i had something else to say? i'm ranting, i guess. oh yes. you made me open my eyes on some points. i like to glitter up my words by using an online-thesaurus. maybe i don't go past that line but i do like glitterly language. eh, i'm going to try an stop that. heh, at least people can understand what i write instead of finding it as a pile of mumbo-jumbo shit.
and on that ending note, could you give me some cc on tain's revenge. i'm trying to improve... and so far, i find that that's my best so far, after the couple one-shots. i know i haven't updated it in a while - i blame moving into residence, graduation, etc, but i cannot give up writing. so it's going to be updated soon. bleh, i have no idea why i'm telling you this.
so i'm off. brilliant rants! mm love the chapter titles ;) byee.
| Midnight Owl 8/20/06 . chapter 8
What a fantastic find I've found! I completely agree with all the points you've made thus far, and I love that you actually sat down to write this. I've always hoped someone would come up with something this fantastic about the annoyances one finds on fictionpress and KUDOS TO YOU for doing such a brilliant job.
This was my favorite segment yet, probably because it struck the deepest. I loved your rant, it embodies everything I've been questioning about this site of late. Why are all the heroines pale with fantasticly dark hair and unnatural eye colors? I do think, though, that authors are trying to address this. I've read several stories recently with actual (blasphemy) ethnic characters. It's fascinating and I love it, being ethnic myself.
Anyways, in the spirt of constructive criticism.. I have noticed a few typos. None that I can even remember so they obviously weren't bad. I just thought I'd mention that so you'd get a well-rounded kind of review.
Fantastic job! I will definitely keep up with this!

I, alas, am not a logged in writer, nor will I ever be, as some complication with getting registered on any writer's site has discouraged me long ago, but I do want to say that your story is highly impressive. It could be discribed as a research log for condtructive criticism. THe information and advice you put iin it is good solid based stuff, which hints in the direction of inspiration for any aspiring author who reads your story. If I could sign on this site and write up a story, I would assuredly let you advertise it, but, as AForementioned, I don't. Thanks for reading my comment!

Actually, it's possible that the flamer just didn't have an account. I admit that I do flame people, but I can't help it. They tell you to, practically. Like when they type on an A/N that if you flame you're a whore or a loser with no life, I feel as if they know the story sucks and they just want to make you pissed. No, if I flame I don't do it anonymously cause I'm just to lazy to sign out of my .
I don't want this to seem like a flame so now for the good parts... really, I thought everything was . Everything is basically based on the truth. People really dothese things and I guess that's why I enjoyed reading this, cause it's all true.
Keep writing, Angel
| DemonicDestiny 7/23/06 . chapter 7
Haha! I had to review for this chapter. the other chapters were good, but putting reviews can be hard .
I get what you're saying with the short chapters. It is annoying and i really wanna change my story and get the chapters together, but I'm to lazy to. Actually I have troble to get 1,500 .
Anyways I'll stop annoying you now. Byee!
