I can understand that, I think, as I'm sure it comes off as something to the effect of "you're learning Bella's story", but when I read it, I was like "why did you include all of this unnecessary stuff?"
One of the rare few....

usually i trudge through fics but this one I am flouncing for the first time ever.  Colorblind by bee1982.

To many grammer mistakes and very simple ones at that and addining it britishism for a fic based in Forks, Washington, USA. 

the plot is kind of iffy and I can deal with it bu the simple mistakes in grammer and brit words I can not

So I flounced Thanksgiving Delight by Karencullen2007. I got to chapter 34 out of 50. This isn't that great of a story. It didn't really grab me, but I stuck it out hoping it would get better. Edward is possessive and controlling, but he also has a temper. He is a lawyer and gets in to several fist fights, where he hit first but was never charge or faced reprocussions for his actions. Not very realistic for a lawyer.

Okay, I just looked at the summary on TWCS for this fic.  At the point where it says "BDSM will show up later in this fic"? I put it down.  Now if she said kinky sex will show up later, that would be fine.  BDSM is a lifestyle.  You usually either do it or don't.  So showing up later in the fic tells me she's throwing it in there because she thinks it will get readers and it probably isn't well written and I probably won't like it because it has nothing to do with the story.   :P

I have a few of hers on my TBR list, though that wasn't one of them.  I keep moving them down the list. LOL!  The summaries always put me off.  :D :D :D :D

Of the 34 chapters that I read before I flounced this, there really wasn't any BDSM in it. He was just possessive and controlling of her.  But clearly had not enough controll over himself.

Yeah, he would have gotten at least a warning.  Though the other lawyer may have also.

But Edward is so cute.  How could anyone discipline him?!?!?!?!?  :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Every now and then i like to mix pairings up so this is a Peter/Bella pairing. Could not finish because of the ridiculous contradictions and the stupid names Bella goes by. I read up to ch 6 and couldnt go on. I did read the last chapter though and instantly knew i'd made the right decision. This is how the trouble with the Volturi is resolved:

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I think i dodged a bullet.

Descriptions that completely leave out major themes and plot points
« Reply #990 on: August 21, 2017, 12:25 AM »
First off my opinion may be controversial, honestly I just need to vent because I'm pissed.

So I've had Rm wa vu on my TBR for a long ass time, and I finally got around to reading it.  And boy am I disappointed. 
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
, I have a real issue with the way that the story can be falsely 'marketed' as a story about a college student who rents a room and falls for the roommate, seemingly sweet and silly.  That's what I buy into.  Whether that be a crimelord story or a medieval tale or a highschool drama or a BDSM discovery, I'm buying into your description and while it doesn't make sense to totally spoil your story, it does feel misleading when a major plot point/character development which feels rather out of theme is sprung on me.

I don't really expect anyone to read this or think about it, but if someone happens to, let me know how you feel.  Maybe about this story (like it, hate it?) or any other situation where the description was misleading for the tone or direction the story ended up heading in, especially if it was late in the game.

My only request is please don't slam me with political opinions, my view isn't going to change, and there is no clean cut right or wrong.  If you hate what I've said because I didn't like the character choice and you must make comment please just say "I don't agree." because I don't want to have any arguments here.  Thanks.

I don't have any issues with kids being in a fic, but with that one.....yeah wasn't impressed with the ex-gf having his kid and such so I stopped reading it. Based on what you put in the spoiler, glad I stopped.
