    Rofl I know that some people are really proud of their stories they put themselves into that are fanfics and I honestly don't read any fanfics so I can't complain. I mean I'd think it was weird but you can put yourself into a story as someone at the same level as a famous person, I don't see why not.

    Also, I agree about the moving too fast thing. My story Looper is literally snail pace slow and I am pretty positive I might be losing readers but I'm not going to rush the story to the end so people can get all the answers they want. Plus I hate predictable stories and I like to work out the predictable stuff in my own stories.
    But back to the moving too fast thing, usually if a story does that I stop reading. I just can't really wrap my had around it.

    I'll comment swap, can you comment on this please?

    Clarification: romantic fics. I'm sure that if someone were very good at writing, they could pull it off. But if it's just a meet, date, sex, parents, marriage!!! fic, I would pass. Just seems too cheesy in my humble opinion.

    I used to write myself into fanfiction, but there were therapy fics, not gratuitous 'I wanna marry Ryan Ross fics'. I've read a lot of fics like that and they were very good.

    I totally agree on the second one of things moving too fast. That really annoys me when I see at the beginning of a chapter they have just met and by the end they have swapped deep secrets or are making out, like put the breaks on lol

    The first one, if done right I don't think they are bad, it all depends on the writer.

    I am up for a comment swap!
    I'll read Make You Feel and if you wouldn't mind check out my story, Summer of Reed Adonis.
