    I got some awesome reviews on GSB. They're not there anymore, obviously. But these are my mibba favorites.
    finksgirl:
    ha ha ha....that was fucking awesome....meh bestest sugarly lump friend Graffiti-poo sent it to me....yes she did...lol
    This one is from Adie and Aphrodisiacs. You have to read the story (only one chapter since 2006!) to understand the comment.
    Bittersweet:
    Haha, I love this parody though its totally un-punk.
    This is my favorite from the punk story. Well, my mibba favorite. I don't get too many interesting comments on here. But on GSB...man. Some of the comments made me want to stab the readers. Way too many people took it seriously, no matter how many times me and Diedre stated that it was a parody.

    My baby, Fallen, gets no interesting reviews. It has gotten hardly any. Three, I think. *sigh* I love that story more than all my others. My first story was finished months before mibba came up. Yet for some reason, someone subscribed to it...O_o. My oneshots series got an awesome review from Dru, though. It made me happyful.

    Onstage for Ages

    It made sense, of course. They always would be best friends and they would always be in love.

    I love that line because it’s so simple but it sums up the entireness of the story and of Tre’s heartbreak.

    I also like how he’s imagining everything so vividly and at the end it’s not what it was. It’s brilliant.

    Rainy Nights and Regrets

    I guess Mike saw the weird grin on my face, mostly because he tilted his head a little and looked at me with that what-is-going-on-in-your-head? look.

    Dunno why. But I love it. :D

    I think Television and I are best friends because we have similar attention spans.

    Simply because it seems quite true and extremely Tre.

    Neither of us noticed; he was drunk with beer and I was drunk with love.

    I like it because it shows how they can be the same, yet different. [/lameness]

    All By Myself

    The only problem with that is that Billie Joe’s sister knows that too and refuses to answer the door.

    Love it. So human. Amusing. :D

    I could taste him stronger than ever.

    Once again, no reason why I love this line. I just do.

    Darling, you have absolutely no reason to worry about your writing. You’re one of “those” writers. There are few, but they’re always genius. You write like a writer. You can write. Don’t worry about it. I promise that you have “the gift”.

    -hugs-
    whooooo. I want funny reviews. I used to write Harry Potter stuff and Dragonball Z stuff on fanfiction.net. Someone once told me they would kill my cat if I didn't update. It made me want to not update.

    I'm up there.
    I love it when people post my reviews on here.
    =)

    I also agree with funny reviews. I posted a whole list of things my friend haushinka said. Sometimes I take myself too seriously with my writing and it's nice to be reminded that it's okay to joke about it.

    Damn. I just realized that I accidentally posted this in the Story Board Mentor Thread. :oops:
    Princess.:
    I read Mama and thought it was SO sad. But it was VERY well-written, no mistakes, and I thought that the way you went about addressing violence was very creative.
    Sardonic Grin:
    You have wonderful descriptions, like truly your words flow so nicely and beautiful like a song. I don't know how to explain it. I read the first two chapies of Polaroids and it was kind of confusing. I would read on more but I am babysitting and my niece is throwing a freaking tantrum as I was trying to read. BUt honestly, I was hypnotized by your descriptions, the flow, like it was sex except I was experiencing it XD
    druscilla; in rags:
    I read Chasing Cars.
    I liked it because it was obvious that you had experienced it, simply because your description of love was real and not some generic definition like 'he was the missing puzzle piece'.

    I also loved how the song lyrics actually worked. Lots of people just shove them in there because they liked the song, but yours actually went with each paragraph and gave the story more of an 'umph', for lack of a better term.

    Favorite Lines
    Nothing more than, "Hey. Can I touch your hair?"
    Amusing.

    You stood for 15 hours with me, not because you particularly liked the bands playing but because you wanted to be with me.
    So 'awww' worth.

    He's lucky I love him and want to squish him around all day. But don't worry, I love you too.
    Amusing, like something you would actually say.

    But it's okay because I'll still love you even if you can't exactly walk on a tight rope.
    Also amusing because... IT IS!

    Basically, I really liked it and I think that you're a very talented writer. =)
    Bastard Son.:
    Chasing Cars
    First off, my eyes welled up with tears towards the end. You used such little, simple things in your descriptions, like the smallest of details from your memories and it made it all the more perfect. The song was perfect for your theme. What I liked most was that it played out like a black and white movie in my head and reminded me on my own relationship(s). It was so real and soft, almost soothing. I can't describe it, but I know that I absolutely loved it. You never cease to amaze me.

    We hung out in my room and the Christmas lights that lined my window turned your face a pretty color. You were so beautiful.
    Things like this is what made this story so special. Simplicity in its purest and most sincere and finest form.
    Sardonic Grin:
    I hate you! No, really, I am furious, because you did something not many writers could do to me; that maybe only two other authors have done to me, and that was make me cry. Yes, I am crying, a little...only because my is sitting right here and I'd hate to explain why I am sobbing like a little girl, but trust me if she wasn't sitting here I would be sobbing like I did when I listened to "You're Beautiful." Anyway, that was the most beautiful story I have ever seen written. I can't even really explain it, but wow. Your boyfriend is so lucky. I honestly thought I wasn't going to like it cause I'm single and bitter, but I loved it. The last paragraph, when you said "Don't forget me. I'll never forget you." (ahh Im gonna cry more), like really got to me. I'm like all mush now. Thank you. Thank you very much.
    working class hero.:
    The last chapter of Polaroids...made me cry like a little bitch. It was so bittersweetly beautiful and packed with every emotion I could think of at the moment. The ending was pretty unexpected, and I like that in a story. It was really great, I think I'm going to go read the rest.
    Spaztastic:
    You're an amzing writer. You put every skill any writer could have into that one chapter and made it amazing. I've never read this story before, but I sensed I knew everything that was going on - not many people can do that. I could feel what the characters were feeling, and the very end made me jaw drop. Absolutely amazing. Two words to describe Polaroids would be powerful and fantastic.

    Worst

    All quotes cited from same person.

    -------

    There's a difference between a romance novel and "erotisim".

    This play along the lines of pornography.

    Why not write about her sucking his cock, long and hard?


    --------

    Oh and btw, I hate the Romance genre (what-the-hell are we doing here?), especially erotic ones. What's the point? To get me excited in some way? Writing fluffery for the a full five pages, trying to entice the readers by showing skin down to the barest minimum? It's all style over substance. You ain't got nothing to say Handgun. Tell me something new. I could've wrote that whole page in one simple, artful (and thoughtful) sentence.

    And I don't believe for a minute you're 14. What kind of books are you reading at that age? (lol) I think you have some issues about life in general. I'm gonna break it down for you girl--there is no perfect man. Never, ever put them on a pedastool; they will always break your heart.


    -------

    Ahh, yes--I can just see it; in less than five years, her piece is going to drastically change--from sappy love story to a murderous deranged woman... or a straight turned lesbian at that.

    Those are just mean. Can't you report this dude for being hateful? Because the first three comments kind of come under the category of "hateful".

    And if this person hates all your stuff, why's he bother reading it?

    Yeah, those reviews were terrible.
    And for the record, I believe you're 14 because I was writing pornography at 12.

    Okay if he/she hates the romance genre so fucking much, why is he wasting time reading a story in the genre? Honestly, I think he is the one with the issues. Just ignore reviews like that.

    I got a review once flaming me for slash when it said in the description that it was slash.
    We got in a huge email debate about it.
    I won. :D

    It was one story and it wasn't even close to pornography.

    Read 'The Dream' and see that it does not even include the act of sex. It's a LEAD IN.

    Yes - Sex without good grammar is indeed an anti-climax...

    "Oof
    ughh,
    hurgh
    oh
    ooh
    yes
    YES
    YESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I come!!!

    huh..?
    er, I coming..?
    pfff...
    wait, wait - I had been came !!!

    ...get off me already you ignoramus."


    ____

    If you can at least write like this in your first person narrative (since you lack seriously in that area), I can assure you, brother, you will be published. It's not a matter of if, but when.

    Meh...I'm over it.
    It kept me up at night, but I'm over it.

    Their heads are just too far up their asses to realize that I will be on the bookshelves one day. I gaurantee you that people like that are not going to stop me from what I want.

    And you know what? I need them to keep commenting hateful remarks because as long as they keep doing it, I develope a thick skin, I callouse, and in the future it will not hurt at all when someone else says such things. Like playing the guitar, when you first start, your fingers hurt, and when you keep going, they callouse, and soon you're unstoppable

    So they can kiss my lily white 14-year-old ass. :cool:

    You got those reviews for The Dream? I read that one (and loved it, btw). It had slightly sexual content, but it definitely does not come under the title of erotica.

    And plenty of thirteen year olds write shitty sex between people. Do you know how many Harry/Ginny wedding night scenes I had to endure before I could find a decent story? And all of those scenes were fucking terrible. I'm virgin, but I'm pretty damn sure those were unrealistic.

    I'm a virgin.
    And I'm definently not a guy who's had sex with another guy.
    Everything I learned about gay sex I learned from fanfiction.
    And it's totally true.

    Same here. Me and my friend joke about it all the time. We say that fanfiction should be the new sex ed. Just as informative and waaay more entertaining.

    There are good ones, realistic ones. You just have to sort through the bullshit.
