I am really freaking annoyed right now.

I wrote a Harry Potter one-shot that has over 500 hits and is on 5 favorites lists...

And it has 1 review.

Only 1 person reviewed the story.

I don't mean to sound like an ungrateful bitch, because I'm glad someone reviewed, but still considering that in over 500 hits at least one other person could have reviewed.

Sorry if I sound bitchy.

There, there... Let it all out.

I've seen so many great FF stories and even some regular fictionpress stories, and no reviews, after like, 1000+ hits. Like, come on!

Maybe no one liked them, despite being attracted perhaps by a catchy title or summary.

For a fic with more than one chapter, it's more reliable to take a look at how many hits the last chapter has. It tells you how many people liked the fic to read it through and didn't just get bored after reading the first chapter.

Honestly, I don't mind when people alert/favorite and don't review. It let's me know that they liked it enough to want to continue reading it/read again later on. And if anything, the hits a story gets makes me happy, too, even if the sotry never gets reviewed at all, because it means that they summary seemed, at the very least, interesting enought to get people to click on it. Does that make any sense, or am I completely bonkers?

Now, the flamers are what torch my shorts. They act all high and mighty, like they're the gods of writing, and then their stories are usually mediocre, at best.

In regards to what Andre said...

That's not necessarily true.

For chapter fics, more times than not, the first chapter will have the most hits. The reason being that when you click on the title of the story it automatically takes you the first chapter.

And then you have the not-so-bright people who will click through every chapter just to get to the last.

The hits, regardless of the number, are never reliable!


... Rain?

You're just a little different than me, but in a good way! Very Happy


My new ARGH-WTF-WTS! is people who alert completed fics.

Thank you!

I've even gone as far as to add: "This is a completed fic. Please do NOT alert." at the end of fics.

*cries* People are weird.

Oh, another weird thing people do that kind of irks me? They tell you how much they loved your story, and then go on and list everything they DIDN'T like about it, not even mentioning what they liked about it. I've only gotten it once, but I've seen it a couple of times on other people's stories. Now is that just rude, or what?

*giggles nervously* I did that today. But it was only because I liked everything BUT this certain part of the fic. The author based the story in California but used Japanese cities: Odaiba and Kyoto.

Though I did say what I liked too, so does that count?

No, you put what you liked, too. This person was all like, "OMG YOUR STORY WAS AMAZING! BUT I HATED HOW [insert bs here] HAPPENED AND [insert more bs] AND I THINK THAT [blah blah blah]."

...you get the drift.

But you're right. He DOES need some work.

I know I alerted one story of Diane's that she said was a oneshot and that she wouldn't be writing anymore...


Twisted Evil but I can hope...

Oh okay, I know now. Maybe I'll do another one. That was rather fun to write. Ghetto Kou and diva Sora were my favorites to write! Razz

Now you've made me feel worse because I still owe you a Kenkari and a Yamkari!



This is more about loving the reviewer, not the reviews. This, I'll assume it's a girl, went through six of my stories and fav'd all of them. But only left a review on the in-progress one. I'm not gonna complain about that, she left a lengthy one, but I love people like that.

They think one work is good and they move onto the others. She even fav'd my not so great ones! I love you

That is megasweet.


I really shouldn't be posting on this topic, because I hardly ever write anymore... I'm just not bothered!


But I keep feeling really bad when I get a review NOW, and they're really sweet and asking when I'm going to update. Because I really don't think I'm going to, my old stories make me cringe and I can't be bothered with new ones. And I still owe Alyss AND Diane birthday stories!
