    Worst/Stupidest:
    Someone actually took the time to inform me that I needed chapter titles. Wait. Really? And then said that if it was an actual published book it wouldn't matter but since it was? on here I just had to have them. Lol excuse me no.

    They also proceeded to mention something about the headstone having no name in the chapter they read and that was very wrong and it needed to be fixed... when there was no headstone or anything of the like in what they had "read."

    So basically I was informed I needed something that doesn't really matter (in my eyes at least, are chapter titles important honestly?) And then they commented on something that DID NOT EXIST. What is the point of that?

    The best review I've ever received was actually the other day on my story Two Weeks:

    "Hello dear,
    I'm sorry for not commenting on this any sooner. Should have done it though...

    As NephthysPhoenix said, this is far from a disaster.
    It is very well written, the characters are likeable and interesting, and the plot itself is very intriguing - I think even if the characters were flat as pancakes and you just spewed some barely unintelligible keyboard smashing here I would still keep up with the story because this plot idea hasn't been done yet (or if it has then you manage to make it seem like it hasn't been done yet).

    You somehow make the supernatural aspect of this story seem not too glaringly supernatural. I only question it a wee bit. I'm a little surprised that Kellin doesn't really question it, then again he's probably busy trying to process what happened in the first place as well as trying not to seem too insane. On a similar note, will you delve deeper into the exact nature of what sent Kellin back in time? I mean, you don't have to, the story would do just as well without an explanation, but it certainly would be interesting.

    Keep up the great work!~ "

    Idk - it made me really happy for some reason. I get a lot of reviews that do that, but the longer ones like this really make me happy.

    The absolute WORST review I've ever received was on "You Might Wanna Answer Me" on Archive of Our Own:
    "HAHAAAHAHHaHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAhhHHAHAHAhahahahaahHAHAHAAHAHAH sorry"

    No joke - that is the exact comment. I was so hurt by it... Like - what were they trying to say? It was horrible? Idk, I've never had a comment make me feel so bad before.

    On ao3, I once had someone tell me my fic was one of their favorites. That sent me straight to the moon (although part of me was like "is this a joke? Are they mocking me?" *sigh* Facepalm)
    Also on ao3 someone once told me they stayed up late reading my fic, and that was high praise as well.
    I wouldn't call it worst or stupidest, but I had someone comment on the first work in a series asking if it was the end. I really didn't know what to do with that one. Also, it really made me insecure about how I ended the work (I was already slightly iffy about the first two works of the series, still am actually. Confused )
