I was a lurker for a few years. Given this particular fetish, it can be intimidating and nerve wracking just making an account.
I understand it can be disappointing when your stories don’t get a reply- as a writer, it’s always nice to hear what people think of your story, their favorite part/ favorite character/ what they want to see more of. Or any constructive criticisms- any inconsistencies/ illogical moments/ flat characters/ nonsensical plot, etc. (though some people do seem to get a massive case of butt hurt when the latter is pointed out. International felonies aren’t cool, kiddos. No matter how much one’s delicate fee-fees got hurt by someone pointing out their mistakes with the intention of helping them learn/ do better in the future). The constructive criticism is what I like about this board, it’s helped me grow as a writer.
