9/6/2012: So, I'm not going to say I've made a full recovery, but I'm a hell of a lot better than I've ever been. As soon as I'm not so busy getting settled into a routine for the semester, I'll get back to posting regularly.

Bad grammar: Okay, it's one thing if English isn't your first language, or if you have the occasional slip up here and there. But when the sentences look like, "he sliped me a paper i wasn't shur what it was but when i read it, i knew and said, 'your a cop?' and he was like 'yea,'" go ahead and get a quick lesson in proper grammar.
The worst is when people use online speak in stories. It's understandable if it's an in-story text message, or something like that, but when the basic telling of the plot includes things like, "OMG, guys," it's time to return to the land of non-abbreviated words.
And one last thing: there's a difference between "their," "they're," and "there,"; there's a difference between "you're," and "your,"; there's a difference between "then," and "than,"; there's a difference between "to," "too," and "two,"; and there's a REALLY BIG DIFFERENCE between "defiantly," and "definitely!"
Plots that move too quickly: It's hard to find that balance between going too fast and too slow with a plot, but I hate when I'm reading the first chapter, and at the top of the page, they're worst enemies, and by the end of the page, they're making out. I understand if it's a one-shot, but even so, at least make it slightly believable. Especially for multi-chaptered fics, take the time to develop the plot.
A/Ns in the middle of the story: Author's notes are called author's notes for a reason. They're notes. Not dialogue, not descriptions, nothing that belongs in the story because if they did, they wouldn't be called author's notes, they'd be called the next paragraph. If something really needs to be explained something that bad, footnote it and put the A/N at the end.
Humanity in General: I just can't stand people. I get peoplephobic from time to time. It's rather inconvenient.
Tools of the Trade: Mental instability and something to write with. A kickass soundtrack doesn't hurt, either.
Favorite Quote: "I write to keep from going mad from the contradictions I find among mankind - and to work some of those contradictions out for myself." --Michel de Montaigne
