    Wow, you really know something about Finland? I'm impressed! I haven't met many people online who'd know stuff about Finland, really. Some don't even know it is in Europe. Do you know anything else?

    What comes to that question, I don't really listen to metal that much. Actually, the point is that I listen to anything I happen to hear or find. I have the most diverse playlist in my Winamp: everything from pop to heavy to classical music. The genres I like the most would be classical, jazz and heavy-ish rock. I once downloaded some metal from a site where beginning bands can put their songs to be downloaded and I liked those, but I haven't listened to the bands you mentioned a lot.

    By the way, are you very busy on the moment? I think I should put up the next chapter of my fic soon. You want to read it first or should I just post it as it is?

    The last review for your parody fic has got to be the greatest thing I have ever seen. I actually laughed out loud when I saw that. It's just... <3

    First off, I only took one look at the title of your new fic, and I've determined that I love you and that you win an internet. Unfortunately, I should be doing more productive things tonight, so I'll have to leave a review later.

    Too many of these writers feel like people should be kissing the ground they walk on. It is rather annoying, and I intend to stomp on their parade (AKA give them an honest review) so they don't think this anymore.

    Oh yes. And it's always fun to do it. Especially when the author promptly responds with wank... before more people join in to tell them that, yeah, nobody is a special snowflake.

    I, too, looked at this Ekeshum girl's new stories, and that spoof of the Little Red Hen was just ridiculous. Not only has she written three(?) fictions that all have the same setting and the same essential plot, but she has taken an existing story and just made it Pokemon-ish.

    Not to mention just as illogical as her romance fics, from what I've gathered on a brief glance.

    I can't understand how people can praise her for her "originality" when she either recycles the same plot or using another authors material.

    Most likely ignorance towards the original source -- as in, her ass-kissing reviewers don't realize it's not actually original. I've seen it happen before. In fact, I'm sure every person in this fandom has. Oh, reviews to every single OT story ever. (Seriously, don't they all essentially follow the same plot, with the same elements in each?)

    I did start to review one, but I felt a little overwhelmed at first, as I could see many technical errors after only a quick skim. I think I might try my hand at it again tonight...

    Good luck!

    I have no idea why it took me forever to respond to you. Sorry about that.

    I've pretty much given up on reviewing myself because of the discouraging amount of new writers who only want praise when they kind of need criticism. That, and the fact that I honestly just can't be arsed to sit down and review these days, even though I have the time. There are times when I want to actually review a story, but I always make some excuse not to. I'm afraid my interest in fics as a whole has dropped, since I haven't focused on a fic for a long while. XD

    And the new sticky, which is now merged with the rules thread, has worked. I noticed a definite change in the quality of reviews in that section, meaning that the general quality of the entire section has risen. And I try to do my best to make sure that everything works out in PFF.

    Yeah, I understand the jerk feeling. I was sort of deterred from leaving anything more than a general review for authors because of that feeling. =\

    Yeah, I just do it anyway and let the guilt set in after. I figure I might as well just be frank with them to let them know that at least one person isn't going to be kissing the ground they walk on. But two? Even better!

    I also wanted that writer (kinda forgot her name now) to actually take in constructive criticism instead of letting it blow through her and acting like it never happened.

    *sigh* I wish she would, but looking in Other Writing, she pretty much did. I swear, her latest in there makes her Sir Aaron stuff look like they deserve Pulitzer Prizes. I'd review it, but I'd rather not give her the impression that I'm stalking her. That and she's repeating a lot of the mistakes she made with her longer works.

    Hopefully I'll get over this problem I'm having so you aren't the only one leaving lengthy reviews. =\

    Good luck. Maybe try your hand at some of the latest ones? There's a few that could use it.

    Thanks for the "please read that long-ass review because it's actually trying to tell you something" messages you've been leaving, by the way. It's always awesome to have someone back me up so I don't feel like a jerk afterwards. XD

    Thanks. The additions are responses to people telling me that there's something wrong in my section, so I just go with what I'm feeling at the time and write. Normally, I'm in a snarky mood and tend to be borderline insulting.

    And yes, the newer writers are annoying, those that are. They sometimes make me want to go on some sort of murderous rampage through the world. XD; Though the entirety of PC periodically makes me feel that way sometimes.

    Why is it your problem or concern? I dont care anymore, I can't take blunt criticism, its extremely aggrevating.Its over, I got it closed, just leave me alone. No more wasting my time writing stupid fan fics for people who are never happy.

    Haven't you been receiving messages from me?
    Anyway, I'm rewriting the fic to try to squeeze out some of the cliches.

    It's in my sig.

About Me

  • About Post Office Buddy
    There's not a lot to tell. I enjoy playing games, playing my guitar, writing, reading, and running. I suppose if you want to know more about me, then you'll have to get to know me >.>
    I write Pokemon FanFiction and play the games. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the Pokemon Special Manga, and I'm torn between the Yellow arc and the Crystal arc as my favorites. I did like the Ruby and Sapphire arcs, but Emerald was a bit... meh, and I haven't bothered reading past that yet.

    I play the Saxaphone and the Guitar to an extent. I can do some of the more difficult jazz solos on said sax, but I'm still struggling to learn some advanced guitar techniques. Sweep picking in particular is giving me quite a headache.
    Michigan (The land of the ice and snow)
    Male ♂
    Nothing exciting, unfortunately.
    Favorite Pokémon
    I don't know, I've grown to like nearly all of them equally. The list of Pokemon I dislike is much smaller, to be honest.
  • Signature
    I am returning once again (hopefully for good). I will be updating Affliction regularly and reviewing other people's fics every so often. If you would like to request a review, then please send me a PM.

    My FFC entry for April 2008: My Endless Loneliness

    My current chaptered FanFiction: Affliction
