Woo Hoo! My first flame!  
And how apropro too! The day before Valentines Day.

So I decided to start posting my fic over at Midnight Whispers. Why? Because they actually have a hit counter and I was curious as to how many people actually read my stories, even though they don't leave fb.

So I finally posted all 16 chapters over there and I've gotten 2 - yep - 2 whole reviews. But then the third came in and it was perfect.

The review is here.

I am a weirdo and should seek medical attention.

Well, isn't that what I've been telling all of you!

Actually I don't mind - I sort of expected it. I just wish the person had read past the first chapter (at least maybe to the second).

Now how to respond tactfully...

They called my Brian, my Brian creepy!

I guess they don't get the meaning of crackfic. I think I labeled it clearly. Oh well, I knoew it was a matter of time before someone called me on it.

I bet they read mpreg though...

Your first flame! Sweetie, I'm so proud of you!
Maria: bunny yayslave_o_spike on February 14th, 2007 02:15 am (UTC)
I know - isn't it exciting?!

I feel like my flame-cherry has been popped! :)

The least inflammatory response is no response.
Maria: Gale Misunderstood Cannibalslave_o_spike on February 14th, 2007 03:00 am (UTC)
Yeah - but I respond to all my fb so I did - something about my orderlies coming in with my medication now. :P

I didn't want to slam her or defend myself - I mean she's entitled to her opinion, so I gave as much of a non-response as possible.

Hating you makes me all warm inside.: valentine heartshappier_bunny on February 14th, 2007 02:59 am (UTC)
I really wouldn't take anything anyone over there has to say seriously.

Thank you bunches for my rose. You're so sweet!
Maria: B/J ILUslave_o_spike on February 14th, 2007 03:01 am (UTC)
Oh I didn't - that's why I responded the way I did.

And your welcome! You deserve it bunny! *smooches*

Congratulations! Don't you feel proud? I don't think you can consider yourself a legit writer until someone has flamed you. :) At least they signed a user name and didn't just post anonymously.
Maria: Gale Misunderstood Cannibalslave_o_spike on February 14th, 2007 03:25 am (UTC)
I do feel proud - like I've arrived! Like I told shadow, we should celebrate with cake (chocolate chocolate chip).

Fuck - I just want cake!

And yeah - an anonymous reviewer would have been tacky.

You are such a good sport. Congrats on your first flame. LOL

I just received a special surprise on my LJ...THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! ♥
Maria: B/J ILUslave_o_spike on February 14th, 2007 03:22 am (UTC)
You are such a good sport. Congrats on your first flame.

The story is for fun - I'm not gonna get into a snit about it although since it's my first flame, shouldn't we commemorate it with a cake?

See? I still have cake on the brain...mmmm...cake.

And your welcome! And THANK YOU for your gist - that was very sweet of you!

*hugs and kisses*

a tactful response
......in the words of the diplomatic......Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to my story. What touches me the most is your concern for not only my mental health, but my peer group social standing. Due to your kind and thoughtful feedback I have contacted the appropriate professionals, other really fucked up friends who will laugh and point at you, and will seek a timely therapeutic regimen which, if I understand correctly, will include but not be limited to: psychotropic medications, to quell the urge to kill stupid fucks with no sense of humour; group therapy in a positive peer culture, hanging out with like minded sick porn loving freaks in order to gain a better understanding of thinking errors; self esteem and creative exercises, writing more sick crack!fic in order so that more sick fucks will pass the crack!pipe along......all in all your response to my fic has been the impetus for personal change in my writing and more importantly my life.......now go grow a fucking sense of humour, read the warnings, and try and grow a pair of balls and not post anonymously.

Re: a tactful response
LMAO! I love it!

You're right! I so see the light now!! I'm calling the Seattle Mental Health Facilities right now!

Oooh, ooh, come with me! Look - we get psychotropic drugs. And it'll be legal for us to have them!

Actually, they sort of posted their name - if it is their name. LOL!

Congratulations! You have arrived!!!

As you know, ascendence as a star in the QAF fic writer's galaxy CANNOT be attained without the passport of at least one appalled review.

Shine on!
Maria: bunny yayslave_o_spike on February 14th, 2007 06:11 am (UTC)

I'm in!

Woo hoo!!
Chaos..panic..disorder...my work here is done.: Flaming Assjillapet on February 14th, 2007 04:58 am (UTC)

You are no-one until you have been flamed.

You need to remember-that Haru person? Claims that a certain author's MPREGS are the greatest stories on the face of the Earth.

You know, the one that writes, like, 3 or 4 mpregs a month?

I would just laugh. And take another hit off the pipe. And show them my icon.
Maria: bunny yayslave_o_spike on February 14th, 2007 06:12 am (UTC)
Oh God - I knew it - they're into mPreg.

Yeah, a homicidal, axe-weilding Brian is creepy, but a pregnant Brian is not.


*takes hit off pipe and passes to you*

LOL!!! congrats on the flame, honey! now you're really established! *snicker*
I admire your answer, too

someone should show the poor person the "close" button on the browser...
Maria: cannibal fic I love my spleenless gay soslave_o_spike on February 14th, 2007 03:19 pm (UTC)
Woo Hoo - I am, aren't I?

And thank you - I thought it was fitting.

someone should show the poor person the "close" button on the browser...

Personally, I don't really think that the person actually even opened up the story and actually read it. Had they, they would have seen that it was a total spoof and nothing too squicky. I think they read the summary, thought it sounded terrible and based their opinion on that.

daphne121daphne121 on February 14th, 2007 01:27 pm (UTC)
I guess they didn't get the definition of Crackfic. And I love how you didn't take anything they said seriously. *hugs*
Maria: cannibal fic I8 my husbandslave_o_spike on February 14th, 2007 03:21 pm (UTC)
No they didn't. Like I said above, I don't think they even opened the story. They just went by the summary.

And no, I'm not taking it seriously. There are enough people who like this story that I'm not offended by it. There are just people who don't get black humor.

Although, it looks like there might be a war going on over there now. Uh-oh...

Yeah - it is! Thanks babe - I could have been snarkier but she's entitled to her opinion, so I just gave a non-response. :D

Yay! I've arrived!

And yeah, so they read it all, so they must have liked it somewhat, huh?

Anywho, yeah, if the person read the story, they would see that it was mostly humor and not much in the way of disemboweling. :P
