Never read any Stiles/Peter fics, I'll have to try some.  >:D


Try DiscontentedWinter. She also writes Sterek, and publishes original stuff as Lisa Henry. She's one of my all time favorite fic authors, and she always finishes what she starts, and she writes so fast! With fic, anyway, lol.

Just read Hear No Evil, by Blue Sea 14 .
So so story,until the Epi. Sounded like it should have come after five more chapters.I hate when someone marks something complete, epi and all, and in reality it is just incomplete.Blech.

Time to flounce again, I really tried to be patient and tolerant, but I’m throwing in the towel.

I’ve try to  push  through a  story, but  I’m ready to  flounce a  fic  25  chapters in -  Bella, who  is supposed to be  this  great  profiler  (that  survived a  brutal killer/rapist)  has  fainted  or  gone  catatonic one  too  many times.   It  also has some  odd  sci-fi things  that are  never  explained or  defined.   The  story has just become too  far fetched to  be  believable.

I’m done.

I'm honestly amazed this has yet to be mentioned (yes, I read through all 52 pages of the thread before posting) but my biggest pet peeve and occasional reason to flounce is when things from the movie are in a story. Charlie does not have a mustache. Laurent is not African American with long dreads. If you want to picture the cast - I personally don't - that's fine, but be aware of the differences between the two media, especially when you post on ffnet under 'Book'.

On the other hand, I don't mind a change in appearance - i.e. Bella has blue eyes - so long as it's not constantly brought up. Like in Sincerely, Sergeant Masen. I can't remember if it was Bella or Rose, though, but one of them had a very different appearance from canon but after mentioning it once, it never came up again. So it was fine, no flouncing needed.

What I hate, is when I don't know why I flounced. I recently read a LyricalKris story - we can all agree she's a great writer - I think it was called Empty Chairs at Empty Tables or something. After just 2 chapters I recced it to my friend, because I loved it. By chapter 11, I was done, realizing that I was forcing myself to keep reading when really I just wanted out. And I have no clue why; she's a good writer, the concept was fairly original. I feel like, maybe, it shouldn't have been so long, maybe it should just have been 5 chapters. Some stories just go on for too long, even if they're only 18 chapters long, I guess.

Can't wait to read other stuff from LyricalKris, though.

Here's some more stuff that makes me flounce, other than the obvious grammar/spelling stuff:
  • Falling in love way too soon
  • Getting together in the 5th chapter of a 30 chapter fic.
  • I recently read a story where Edward was brothers with Embry, and another with Seth. And, no, they weren't half-siblings. There are sooo many characters to choose from, why are you making a white dude the brother of a Native American?!?

There's probably more, but maybe not; I rarely flounce fics, tbh. Oh, and, I don't mind when characters have a different nationality, just gives the readers more stories. And I adore Rochelle Allison's use of Hispanic Alice in Starry Eyed Inside.

Here's my question; do you imagine the cast when you read, or your own versions of the characters?
