Bloodbending Yor Way To A Better Sex Life!
Crossposted from LJ's fanficrants and fanficrants
Dear Avatar fanauthor:
While having Katara use Bloodbending to spice up her sex life is certainly an approach to smutfic I haven't seen before, I think perhaps you need to keep some things in mind. ( Cut for crazy, dubcon and general brainbleach rquirements. )
No love, me.

I am not averse to taking fic requests. I have even been known, on occasion, to solicit them, particularly for drabbles. However, I think a distinction needs to be made between the term "request" and the term "demand."
Neither I nor any other fanfic writer is under any obligation to produce fic on demand. If we do not update a multi-part story for a while, we do not owe anyone an excuse. Sometimes real life interferes; sometimes we're busy with other fics; sometimes the fish just ain't biting. That's our business, and no one else's.
As for requests, I do feel a sense of obligation towards those, but only to a certain extent. If I have to choose between something I'm doing as a favor on the internet and something with a deadline in the real world, I'm going with the time-sensitive material every time. The request will be done when it's done, and that's that. No more apologies, no more excuses. I am a writer, not a machine.

Taking it... or, you know, not.
There are many things that piss me off about poorly-written M/M fanfic. The surrogate-female bottom, the fallacy of the self-lubing anus, the bad fangirl Japanese/German/French/Klingon/whatever,
etc. However, the one thing that makes me see red every time, lose all reason, and wank like it's going out of style (and not in the good way), is the following phrase, consisting of four little words:( Click to read more bitchy ranting. ) Current Mood: Grouchy
