(#) IBlameTheLemon 2012-05-28 12:29:30 AMHun, there isn't a need to apologize :) we all have different opinions, and I completley understand where your coming from. As for my earlier comments, I was a bit rude and shouldn't have been. Must have been my obsessive protective freakyfangirl side coming out :D hehe but Anyway, never apologize for what you believe in. You have a right to feel how you want. XD
(#) dancingdragon 2012-05-28 01:14:27 AMWhat that wise lemon person above me said XD glad you liked my fics, and I understand about your frustration, I feel the same way sometimes and I'm sure a lot of us ficwaders do when trying to find a good story.
(#) XCherrikidXD 2012-05-28 08:47:48 AMI too think there should be a frerard or slash section.
I'm not a fan of frerard or slash if im honnest and i only write MCR/OC or MCR with their wives stories.
If you wanna read some non slash stories read this one of mine: http://www.ficwad.com/story/188758 Its a killjoy story if thats okay.
As for the describing now i gotta admit i probably do discribe my characters (Most are from auditions that i hold) i think it just gives the reader a better image of the character, but discribing the character how you said to discribe is good too.

Author's responseI'll take a look at your story for sure. I don't know if you've ever heard of theimmortalityproject.com but it was my absolute favorite fanfic site. It was really well organized and they had tons of ways to filter stories. You could filter by character, alphabetical, rating, genre, and pairings. I wish it still existed :[ but I gotta say this site is 2nd best.
I didn't mean to say people shouldn't describe their characters, its a very important part of the whole picture, I just think it should be incorporated into the story instead of a list of details. I'm sure we've all come across stuff like that before, you know, like when there are several paragraphs about what the character is wearing every time theres a wardrobe change. It's just something to take into consideration that I think would improve some material.
(#) TakeMyLife 2012-05-29 10:59:37 AMI actually really respect the fact that you've posted this.
I may not agree with what you said, but I do respect the fact that you didn't just log on and ''your stories suck''. It's quite clear that you meant no harm to people. As I've noticed; there are a lot of people who log on here and instantly start attacking people (the complete opposite of what this site is about) which is why people automatically think 'yet another troll'. I Don't think you were rude, you may have worded it wrong a little in my opinion, but I knew you weren't trying offend anyone.
Sometimes people write stories based on what they've seen/heard from the band (Like bullying and self destruction plots or bands they like and eye colour) so they can make it just a little more realistic.
I think that most people prefer a Frerard Story. I personnally don't mind what pairing it is; I'm just not into Waycest or anything like that because that's a little too far for me.
I Haven't read half of these, and they mostly seem like their based on sex but there are other pairings if you're interested. I Don't have many stories with other pairings so I'm sorry:(
Even so, there are many AMAZING Frerards. If you're not into the sex then this would probably be the best ;
- you'll just have to pick the right ones.
this is my personal favourite at the moment and i suggest reading it if you're interested. (however it's based on Gerard being a sex save then learning how to be independant)
There are also many other writers on here that have such amazing talent who write frerards.
If you really hate them, then ignore the links:L
Anyway, I hope you find a fic that's worth reading:)
Author's responseThank you. I noticed a lot of reviews and posts that were very harsh and disrespectful, I think that is just wrong. If people really didn't like something then why not make suggestions and offer more constructive criticism. There are some extremely well written pieces in all categories but it's really just a matter of interest, which shouldn't get in the way of recognizing great stories. I'll be sure to check out those sites. Thanks again for the feedback.
(#) TakeMyLife 2012-05-30 12:21:13 PMExactly, that's what I mean. People on this site really do want to be able to visit a site where everybody respects eachother, but at times some people make an accout to automatically insult everyone which is as you've said; wrong.
Pretty much all authors on this site appreciate constructive criticism as long as it's respectful. The authors do take note on the suggestions and try to make it better. Not only to satisfy the reader, but to improve their work for themselves. There are a lot of amazing stories that vary in pairings it just takes time finding it. As you said, It all depends on what interests you which is why you'll find loads of fics based of Frerard. Of course, I agree, A great story is a great story. It's simple to imagine it with different characters and such to make it better for yourself.
I hope you find something to your taste:)
