I'm thinking about coming back here. Tumblr is nice for pictures, but there's no interaction at all. It's very lonely.

As always, nothing has changed in my life outside fandom. I already mentioned my beginning to write fanfics when I was last on here. I have a few posted now and I'm pretty proud of them.

My Dangan Ronpa 2 stories are most popular. I write for a rare pairing so anyone who ships it has to come to me, I guess. I'm very excited that people like what I've written. I get so many kind comments. It's funny, because all I did was skim chapter 2 and Komaeda and Tsumiki's freetimes. I hardly know anything about SDR2. I just find those two be to be very easy to understand and identify with.

However, I personally like my Valvrave story best. It hasn't gotten much action so far, so I'm pretty disappointed. I wonder if I screwed something up on it. Maybe I go too heavy on L-elf's feelings for Lieselotte, but I honesty think that's how he sees her.. I really do love this story, though, if you'll let me me toot my own horn. Usually, it's very, very hard for me to get ideas and know where to go next. With this one, everything just keeps flowing. I guess I am writing for a somewhat rare pairing, though. There's lots of art for it on the Japanese side of things, but most US VVV fans aren't into it...

I want to write for Brave Story next, of all things. I rewatched it recently and fell in love again. I noticed that old fandoms that aren't blockbusters like Fruits Basket rarely get new fics. So odd. Don't people ever get back into something they used to like?

I don't know if you guys share my latest fandoms, but I'd be happy if you read my stories!

I'd post them to comms but Idk if comms are really a thing anymore...

I need to watch Valvrave. I've seen the model kits and the mecha look interesting and I've heard good things about the story as well.

To me, only the first season was good. The second got too dark for me so I had to drop it. But I did fall in love with some of the characters.

Hi, long time no see. I'm glad you are coming back. I feel the same way about Tumblr. It's not a place for conversation.

Actually I found fanfiction writing to a big a great alternative to fanart. I ended up writing fanfiction because I could express what I wanted in words way better in my average art skills. XD

I wrote/write for rare pairings and small fandoms and got quite a bit of reviews despite that.

What I found out during the expirence that you may find helpful to get more attention:

-DO NOT add in your own OC unless that OC is only three to advance the fandom character's development or the plot, and only use OCs sparingly. If you can think of a character in the series that can do the same thing logically/in-character instead, do so. People really hate OCs, and if they see anything about them in the summary, chances are, you stuff isn't getting read.

-Don't do fanfiction with multiple pairings, even if you can it really well. Two pairs at most, a major and a minor. The reasons for this is the "everyone is gay" or "everyone is hooking up" tropes that shitty writers often use, and people associated many pairings in one fanfiction with bad fanfiction writing.

-Go serious rather the pure comedy, or keep the comedic moments completely separate from the serious/emotional parts of the story.

-In the summary, list pairing, genre, and then a short summary of the plot. If the summary is to long or too complicated or filled with shit grammar then they will pass it by.

-Try to write about something no one else or very few people in the fandom have tackled.

But, yeah, sometimes you'll have to write 8000 words before people even start to notice your story. That happened to me once.

Sadly I haven't had time to finish the the two long running fanfics I have going. Both of these ones I wrote because no one would write the pairing for me the way I wanted. XD

I'm not into Brave Story or the other two fandoms you mentioned yet, but when my final exam is over I'll take a look to see the writing. :)

I actually did all those things you suggested already XD lol Maybe my stories are just too short. I have a terrible attention span so I don't like writing or reading long fics...

Well, I also wrote for Evangelion (it was my first fic so I'll admit it's not the best) and Fruits Basket and I think you've seen those? Thanks in advance for taking a look when you can :)

don't feel like you have to force yourself to come back to lj, but its not as dead here as you might think
Dec. 12th, 2013 03:21 pm (UTC)
Did it sound that way? ^^;;; It's quite the contrary. I can't find another site that has as much to offer me as lj does. It was was a mistake to leave.

However, it is quite dead from what I've seen. The only comm I see update is Hetalia. None of my current fandoms even have comms....

But still, I need a place to share my feelings. Neither facebook or tumblr are right for that.

yeah, there's no other site for blogging your feelings and life than lj/dw.
