Oh god, this. I just read Ghost Story, which is a published novel. It was absolutely completely, chock full of flashbacks, but they were always led into in a completely natural way that kept the flow intact.

What I hate even more though?

*begin flashback-within-the-flashback*


I've seen it multiple times, and once I even saw.

*begin flashback-flashback-flashback*

This forum needs an emoticon for primal rage.

Beyond that, I really despise stories that ignore basic biology... Yeah, you know exactly what I'm talking about.

In Naruto fanfiction, Naruto and Hinata romance. Not because I hate that pairing, because really, the romance path people take is not my primary reason for reading any story. No, the reason I hate it is because it's usually handled with all the skill and subtlety of a brick thrown at the window, even if they are otherwise excellent writers.

I also hate haremfics of any kind, in any genre.

...that's about it, actually.
