@seranatis: We're cool, man. I think there was fault on both our sides. You were just trying to help, and I overreacted a bit. Thank you for apologizing and being honest; I hear what you're saying about always having standards...I'll try to do better next time. :)

Also, not sure if Kat told you, but I would love for you to critique the novel I'm working on once I finish up a decent draft! Definitely could use a critical eye on that project, as I care about it a lot. Totally understand if you're too busy, but thought I'd throw the option out there.

Thanks! ^-^

@Cruneoian: I'm flummoxed as to how you found it since I didn't link to it from any of my primary social media. Just my random personal blog that I have rarely used, and even under a new name I made up that didn't link to anything of mine at all. I did this for a reason, because I didn't want them to be associated.

I will be the first to admit that I am sensitive, especially about my writing because I know I'm not a very good writer. I don't have years of experience. I am not dismissing everything you said--I agree that phrases and words were repetitious, and I know I do that a lot--BUT you also weren't clear on everything. Saying I have poor grammar and not pointing out WHAT those mistakes are doesn't help me learn what I'm doing wrong.

Also, you DIDN'T have anything positive to say, so that hurt too. "Interesting" isn't a positive; that's generally what people say when they can't think of anything nice to say. (And saying "I could have said terrible, horrible things, but I didn't" doesn't help either. Now it sounds like you really DID think it sucked. :/)

I have no problems with criticism when I ask for it and when it's something I want to improve, but this was not the case. It was just something I did in a short bit of time for fun because I enjoyed it and thought a friend of mine would too. Your attitude of "just because it's fanfiction doesn't mean you don't have to spend time on it" hurt because if I can't even write something silly for FUN without having to spend hours stressing over it, then what the hell is the point...?

You could have just as well messaged me privately, especially since you apparently already knew I wrote it, and asked if I wanted constructive critique and done so privately. I probably would have said "yes", and then not have been as hurt. But coming home after work and immediately seeing such negativity on something I only did for fun in the first place kinda really sucked.

I have no doubt you didn't mean to hurt my feelings, but nonetheless it did. And saying "Sorry, but it's not my fault", isn't really an apology, so don't bother saying "sorry" at all. Just say "I didn't mean it". Otherwise you come across as even more insincere.

I'm sorry if now I seem like a total bitch; I don't want you to think that, but I understand if you do. Know that I do not think poorly of you, personally, just how you worded your critique. u_u; Sorry we even had to have this discussion.

At least I don't react like that out loud. I just, you know, go cry in a corner and etc.

You can blame James for the lack of updates.
