Dear two writers of fanfics that I like,

Author#1, it is not necessary to label scene cuts to the name of the character who has the pov of said scene. Really. You don't have to. Especially since, well, sometimes it turns out that the character DOESN'T have the pov for long. :/ Stop using this. Your fic is not a screen play and shouldn't be since you're on ff.net.

As for you Author#2, I just found your fic and the concept intrigues me. However, I'm starting to worry when you say things like "well, he'll have a backbone and is not a whiny momma's boy in THIS fic" (hint hint to the character I'm talking about). I mean, yeah, he is a whiny scaredy cat but that's one of the things that endears me to him. How about this, you SHOW me HOW he's become this way (even if this is an AU) instead of telling me then we'll see how much he's changed. Character growth/change can be a nice thing but starting out with a cardboard cutout of a pre-made character and inserting super-special-awesome traits is tittering on the lines of OOC-ness and Gary Stu-dom. But hey, this IS the first chapter, so I'll cut you some slack. Just keep him HIM, ya know.

Kinda liking ya,
abyss =;o

Dear self,

Do your homework and STOP READING RANT COMMS FOR THE LOVE OF CREAM PUFFS!!

Love and Disappointment,
Ebony =;[

P.S. If you're seriously thinking about making a fandom shout out comm, then just do it. Remember that one comm you said you were going to do and never did? Well, now it's too late for that one, isn't it! GET ON THIS ONE! GRRRRR.

*curious* I was thinking about something like that myself, who's doing this?

Well...no one's done it yet, but we could. :D

Hmm...wait there was something similar to this idea I saw a while ago, but for the life of me I can't remember the comm's name. It kinda died from what I recall. I think it focused more on fanfiction though. I want to do something that's more like 'Hey! Remember this show? Still like it? Looking for other fans? Well, you've come to the right place!'

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. A lot of that happens on fandomsecrets, and I think it's getting to the point where people make "secrets" just so they can give a shoutout to some obscure fandom where thousands of people will see it. It would be nice to have a place where people could just yell "VASH ROCKS!" with their name on, and meet a bunch of other people who also think Vash rocks. fandomshouts, maybe? or something like that?

Exactly!

'Cept I'd have individual post for each fandom/character (maybe even pairings, but that can get reeeeally wanky to the max so maybe not) Also, there could be a thread where people ask (kinda like they do for requests at radio stations)for the fandom/character they want to make the shout out for and then the mods would post for it a la fandomsecrets. Only the mods would be able to post entries.

Yeah I was thinking fandomshouts or fan_shoutout or something like that. :D
