[NOTE 02/10/12: UPDATE HERE: http://www.ficwad.com/story/202354]
(#) MCRkilljoy 2012-10-01 02:05:41 PMIs it really worth leaving? Is it really worth giving it all up? Everything you've worked for? The reputation you've built, the respect you've gained, the love you've earned? Thousands of readers log on to this site to read your stories. Are you really going to leave it all behind because of some troll? This troll finds joy being the cause of everyone else's misery. They probably get up in the morning and have nothing to look forward to, other than troll on some widely unknown fan fiction site. Don't you find that sad? Don't you feel sorry for this person? This troll is probably anothe writer on the site, and do you know why they target you? They hate you. They hate all the reviews you get, the rates you get, the support you have, the friends you have, the fame on this site you've gained. All in all, this person is jealous that you are better than them, in all areas. Writing, intelligence and personality. And you want to leave give up because of that? They didn't even tell you what was wrong, rating is anonymous. They are to afraid to even admit they rated you down!
I really love you, as does everyone else and I'm devastated to see you go. If you really feeling leaving is the best choice, then go for it.
I know health wise and mentally, you're not great, but personally, I think giving up on the site completely is a mistake. Even take a month or two off if you need, but please, try to reconsider. You are the best this site has had, and letting go will just cause it all to slowly fade away. I don't even think you know how much you've inspired everyone on here...... I support you in whatever you decide, but just try to see how sad this troll is, and how much you have going for you. You're going to do really well, believe me.
- You are truly talented. I didn't know that your stories keep getting rated down though; I don't know what kind of dick would do that, because your stories and poems are beautiful. I understand that you need to leave here, and it sucks, because I always thought that FicWad WOULD be that safe haven that people could escape to.... not this.... pit of despair or something. (O_O). I hope that you keep writing though, and that maybe one day you'll come back.
(#) AlteredStateOfMind 2012-10-01 05:55:15 PMI know exactly how you feel. The same thing's been happening to me and it's the worst feeling in the world to have something rated down that you dedicate so much time to. I don't blame you for leaving, I've been thinking about it myself, but I hope you won't let this get in the way of your writing. Fuck whatever jealous bastard is sabotaging your stories, they are still brilliant and show what great potential you have to make creative writing your career. Don't give up, just stick to new websites like LJ where shit like this doesn't happen. Trying To Escape The Inevitable is one of the best fics I've ever read and I'd die if I didn't get the chance to read it to the end, so please add me to your mailing list. My email's: AlteredStateOfMind@live.com
Keep your chin up and don't let this get to you. Everyone here still thinks you're amazing. x3
- I am really really sad about you leaving Ficwad, but I understand your reasons. If I could convince you to stay, I would, but I think you know better than anyone where your limits are and I just hope you can gain back whatever confidence you lost here and use it to continue on with your stories on another site. Mostly, though, I want you to be better. Maybe sleep more. Maybe take up yoga. Just get in the best mindset you can be in and focus on yourself foremost. If you never write another word in your life, just know that your real life is what is important.
Also, I would love to be on your email list. My email address is : firstname.lastname@example.org

(#) InsomniacsLoveMe 2012-10-02 03:30:13 AMI'm really sad to see you go, I don't want you to leave! But I understand your reasoning.(Those fucking trolls though, seriously, someone needs to give them some brain cells.)
