So, not much fic has been posted because I've been working on some longer stories. Which hopefully means that sometime this summer I'll have some meaty fics to share. Yay!
One of the fics I did post recently came along with a nasty comment. Possibly my first, but my memory isn't good enough to say that definitively. The commenter said, of my latest fluffy bit of AJ fic, that it was nauseatingly cloying
and one of the reasons I absolutely hate and detest this type of story
. Not even a hint of constructive criticism.
I have to tell you, I was caught up short by that. If they don't like this type of story, why bother reading it? Still, I kept my reply non-combative and moved on. I mean, I knew the story wasn't crap. But all it takes is one mean word to make me rethink things. But then my faithful readers chimed in and lambasted the commenter, and I'll be honest...that really made my day. ::grins:: It's so nice to have support from my target audience. So thank you, readers, for being my knights in shining virtual armor!
This was a good reminder to me of why, when I really don't like a fic, I just back out and look for another one. Or if it's something I have to comment on, for reasons, I try to find one nice thing I can say. Because there's no reason to hurt people's feelings, especially when their hearts are in the right place.
Without further ado, my two latest fics:Title: Tasty PropositionFandom:
Steve, Danny, MekaWarnings:
Implied PTSDPrompt: Any, Any slash couple, one of them works in an adult 'space' (bookstore, leather bar, etc.)
In which Danny stumbles across a restaurant in a very unlikely location, and finds and even unlikelier man there that just might make Hawaii more interesting.
Title: Bumps in the RoadFandom:
That McShep BoyPairing:
John, Rodney, AJWarnings:
family road trip angst, author's inability to write age-appropriate child dialoguePrompts: Stargate Atlantis, any, the joys of traveling with small children
author's choice, author's choice, "We've been listening to this for the past three states! Can we please find something else?!"
any, any, "Are we there yet?"
In which John, Rodney and AJ take their first - and possibly last - Earthside road trip together.
