  • Hi! I'm Ellachanted and I'm a fanfic-oholic.
Thread #6 - We are crazy talkers here! Join in the fun!

ADULT DISCUSSION HERE, SO TRY TO KEEP IT CLEAN! UM NO, WAIT! IF YOU ARE EASILY OFFENDED, LOOK AWAY NOW! 

This is the new thread as the other was sooo long and had lots of pages. Continuation of our wonderful discussions on Twilight Fanfiction, Books, and Life in general.  But mostly Twilight fanfics... and life stuff that will get me a NOT ALLOWED statement. 

Okay, here is a place to discuss what you are reading, ask for recommendations and complain about the writing.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion, so please play nice   

Because we know drypen's watching    :googlyeyes:

Just another reminder that I'm losing whatever memory I had as I noticed that SydenyAlice has finished You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login and I can't remember a thing about it even though I've been following.  ^-^ :-[ :-[

I kow she hasn't updated in a while but I normally remember at least the guideline of a fic or a book but this I'm drawing a complete blank.  :(
Oh well, looks like this will be one of my next reads then.  :P :D

Don't you hate it when that happens? This is why I rarely read WiPs, I forget stuff by the time it's finished.

I'm normally pretty good with remembering what's been going on with the WIP's I follow (Thank God, as I'm following so many) but I'm sure it's a sign of getting old not having a clue about this one.  :(

Next I won't remember my kids names, oh just wait a minute I call them everyone's names (including my brothers) before I get to the right one as it is already.  :banghead: :D :D

It's the same with my boys for both hubby and I.  They usually just look at us until we correct ourselves and then reply with .... C'mon. You NAMED us.!!  I guess I am doing better than my mother. She makes up words. For example my name is Dianne and my sister's name is Janet.  When mom called for us, we became Jianne and Danet.

LOL!  Thanks.  :-*

I was just saying that when they pull to publish,  they have to change the eye color and hair color as well as the names. At that point, I am no longer interested in the story. I can't read half of EdwardsEternal'so stories because Bella has blue eyes and so does Edward half the time.  Then there is a football story by mybella that has Edward with black hair, black eyes and tanned skin. Bella is also black haired, black eyed and tanned. Totally Jake and Leah. I can't read it. At all.

Don't mess with my Edward and Bella! !!!  :D  :D  :D  :D

I tried to read FSOG. Couldn't do it.

But I agree with you. If you aren't a Twifan and are just looking to write in the demographic of twifics, you should let readers know.  I don't think Jaxon22 is one of those as she wrote for a long time without pulling to publish.

Edward having blue eyes in a fic doesn't bother me, it's Rob I envision anyway. All Edward when it's a vamp fic. 

I have not read any published fanfic yet. Oh I take that back, I read Gabriel's Inferno. I guess that goes along with my ff.  I haven't re-read any of them.

I don't know how to quote in more than one post in tapatalk. So I apologize.

Ficfangirl....I broke my ff cherry with Darkness on chp 1. A WIP no less. Wip's read much different than completed ones. Especially on the lemons. To us wipers, the lemons are months apart when in reading it later , every other chp is a lemon and sometimes too much.

I use to have 20 or so wips going and while I waited for updates, I would read a completed one. But after last year, my wips started completing and I haven't picked up a lot in their place. There are a few authors I read anything they write and will start their wips when they first start posting..

Forgot to mention another milestone for 2014. Hubs and I didn't really celebrate it much because our son was injured, but we reached 25 yr wedding anniversary.

Now to relax and read.

I could almost ignore Edward's blue eyes.  I can't ignore Bella's blue eyes.  Edward's eyes change a lot anyway, especially when he is a vampire.  So bluish green?  I can ignore.  But Bella having blue eyes?  It is not Bella.  It may be the author.  She says she likes blue eyes.  I wonder if it is because it will make it easier to change the names later....


Happy Anniversary!  :-*

I'm the same way. It's too bad EdwardsEternal does the wrong eye color thing, she writes well, but neither Bella nor Edward should have blue eyes.  I try to ignore it, but sometimes she mentions it so often that I just stop reading.

I totally agree - don't mess with Edward and Bella!!!   :iagree: :iagree: :iagree:

If it's fanfic, I want them to look how they're supposed to look, with P2P, I prefer them to change a lot, so I'm not constantly falling back into Bella&Edward mode. In fanfic, I don't even like it when they ACT too OOC. I chose to read about these characters, so I want them to be recognizable, both physically, and personality wise. I can make SOME allowances, of course, so long as the core of them is the same. So, I don't like to read about stripper or hooker Bella, or abusive Edward, etc.

I've read a few P2P, but generally, unless a LOT got changed, I stick with the fic, because, hey, free!

I was able to read the one where Edward was blind, but not the Snowbound one.  I think it was because he was blind, he wasn't gazing into her magical blue orbs.....

She does writer really well.  I just don't like her eye color choice.  Me? I've always preferred brown eyes - probably because I have blue/green eyes.  There isn't anything exciting about them....  :D :D :D :D :D

Free can't be beat, I have to say.

I can handle a bit of OOC, but I like it when they stick to the character but change it a little.  So Bella with some confidence is good, because with Edward she is confident. But I haven't read where she is a stripper or he is abusive. I tend to not read those.

Yes, improvements are great, I can totally get behind a writer fixing some of what Meyer kinda screwed up with, like Bella's dishwater bland personality. I just don't usually like loud, belligerent, party girl Bella characters.

Of course, I haven't read much Twific in a while, I'm hooked HARD on this Teen Wolf stuff. I find those authors are much better at sticking to how the characters are shown on the show, mostly, anyway.

Not much of nothing. Just inserts the words   [ img] [/ img] etc. so you can put something between. And I can say that it can be a pain because if I have to go to safari to get img link or Url anyway, I might as well use this site in Safari.
