because there's already a lot said about the topic I'll restrain to some quotes I really agree on.
Quite right! Roswell had so many open and unfinished stories within the plot, it just invited to write it in another way or to finish it (for example the open ending of season 3)Behrsgirl77 wrote:Wow! I just stumbled upon this topic, while looking to post a request elsewhere. I have to say I have read all of your comments and with respects to the fact that while I enjoyed "Twilight" I have no desire to run out and read fanfic from that fandom.
I don't know why, maybe I'm just good that there was a happy ending, whereas in Roswell there was but there was also so much unfinished (as someone else pointed out).
I think that's the mayor reason maybe while writers react so unmature to feedback and plagiarism.Roswellian117 wrote:The twi-tards seem to just copy what they read in the books and that isn't creative. A lot of them are children over there and we have to remember that. A lot of us are in our mid-20's, 30's, 40's and so on. If Roswell was brought back as a new show now the younger crowd would love it. Then we would be flooded with pre-teens screaming over team max and team kyle! LOL.
Ok, I would be also pissed when people would steal my story of pieces of it but not a single hair on my head would think on pulling my story off the net. Why write stories when only a select audience can read it?
Which is the complete opposite of the next quote:
God, I was shocked when I read that. It's true, it's nice to see some feedback or to observe that a lot of readers find their way to your story but waiting for a x-number of replies is such a selfish and self-centered thing to do.... What about the readers who do like your story, or the item you handle? And I know what I'm talking about, 'cause my first fic had a handicapped Michael in the leading part. I knew from the beginning it wouldn't attract a lot of readers but I wrote it anyway 'cause the subject mattered to me.Misha wrote:That reminds me of our "holding a fanfic hostage" rule. I'm so used to coming here and knowing no fic will ever be held hostage until certain amount of feedback is given, that when I go to other sites and see the authors blatantly asking for X number of reviews or else no more story, I'm stunned
If you put your heart in a fic, you can only go for it.
And that's why I was completely blown away when I found this discussion.
