30 days of Prince of Tennis - Day 7 and mini-rant

I'm doing this early because I'm depressed. See the cut at the bottom if you're curious as to why. Seems like I'm talking to myself a lot lately. *sighs*



Your favorite pairing

When I first entered the fandom I was a total Platinum pair fangirl. But I've since become extremely pissed off at Yagyuu and, while I'll still write them, my favorite pairing has switched to..........





I'm not sure when I fell in love with this pairing, but I rather suspect it has to do with my 8-some piece and how I kept putting Yukimura and Niou together along with how upset I am with Yagyuu. That's not to say all my stories with this pairing are happy, I've got a couple of torture Niou pieces, but it also spawned a Massu/Masa piece that I'm still working on.


Which leads quite neatly into the rant.

I'll put this behind a cut.
Guys, please, I'm begging you. When you ask me to update a piece or see that I've updated a piece, don't flame me. I'm doing my best and going where the story is taking me. I don't really think my stories through to the end, so I rarely if ever know what's going to happen before it does and it really hurts me when I get reviews that border on or are outright flames. I had planned to spend the whole day writing because Ro had a workout and we didn't have movie night tonight. I have a pulled muscle in my back, but had worked out a way to be at the computer without it hurting too much. I decided to start with TDC because I know a lot of readers want to know what's going to happen next and had plans for three or four other pieces as well, including some fan fiction works. One of the first reviews I got is more or less a flame and it just killed all my enthusiasm to write tonight. I'm pretty thick skinned when it comes to reviews/feedback/flames and rejections, but it still hurts.
Consider your words carefully, please, not only for me but other reviews you might leave as well.
So now I don't know when I'll be updating anything again. I've got to get back into the mood to write and work is going to be hell for the next few weeks. I'll apologize in advance.


I'm going to go play a video game.
