I just found this entry, purely by chance, at a community called pottersues. My very first story written for firewhiskeyfic has apparently been judged to be a rotten piece of crappy troll dung. Or maybe _I_ am the one who is the troll?

For pete's sake, I say from the get go it is meant to be poorly spelled and stupid, but even though one of the commenters discovered that firewhiskeyfic is for real, they still act all dismissive.

Wow, I think I have now crossed some threshold! LOL

Eh, I wouldn't take it to heart. pottersues is a lot like the recently deceased deleterius -- a place to make people feel better about about how ~not Sue~ they are while completely missing the point. These are the people that will take Litmus tests (link) while unironically completely adhering to the results. Most of these people wouldn't know good writing if it bit them in the ass.

And I say this as a former member of deleterius (I was paranoid, okay? ;P) and a current member of other snarky communities as well as fanficrants. pottersues is scraping the barrel - even for me.

Thanks, kitty, I won't take it to heart. In an odd way I am sort of pleased. LOL

I will admit I brayed with laughter after I got over the surprise of seeing myself on that list.

Hi, Vampy. :) ;-) Wanna drink?

Way to go, you! That's totally awesome ... because they totally don't get what that comm is all about. Maybe we should all be trolls next time and try to get in there! :)

I like this idea. Fully support it.

I vote next month's theme should be "Mary Sue"

Haven't thought of this month's prompts, so we just may use that in honor of Miss Lib here. ;)

I have to wonder at the mentality of the people that:

A) Do not read your 'author's note' on such stories
B) Decide that something that was CLEARLY written while liquored up (and meant to be seen that way on PURPOSE) is fodder for poorly written self-insert fic.
C) Do not understand the concept of Firewhiskeyfic. I mean read the rules, people.

*shakes head in disgust* Really. REALLY? Ugh

Yes! Author's Notes are there for a REASON! (usually, at any rate!)

Oh for the love of...this ranks up there with some of the dumbest fan doings I've seen. Seriously.

Did you see rzzmg's awesome comment in response?

You've won a RAZZIE - from the stupid ones! Haha!

Some people are interesting and fun - and I believe we Firewhiskey Ficcers are those people, and the people on this forum are... not.
Jan. 18th, 2013 06:21 pm (UTC)

Not. NOT, indeed. :-D

First of all: *HUGS YOU BACK*

Second of all - thanks for that link to the latest. Absolutely NO understanding what-so-ever of FWF. What the hell. The ego seems to be swelling, too. But that's my own opinion of course.

WTH with this bit?:

I'll also admit here that I may have peeved off the writer even more by trying to PM her and respond to the comment she left in the journal. ... I'm also going to ask the Minions not to comment on the writers blog. I have my reasons for asking you to do this.

"I have my reasons"?! What?
