Every actual experienced author ever is laughing at my use of the term "a long time." xD
Oh my god. I do not understand people who put their writing online with so many grammar mistakes! If you can't spell simple words, you're clearly not trying.

Eh. Let them. And I double posted or some reason, hell if I know why.
Agreed. And DO NOT GET ME STARTED ON THEIR "stories". So many canon errors, OOCness, OC's dropoing in from no where...and MARY SUES GALORE.

I feel like a lot of people use fanfiction to write what they originally wanted to be an original story, but they threw other characters in so that they could post it on Fanfic and have people actually read it.

That is actually an amazingly apt theory. And it certainly makes sense.

I was thinking about it when going through the archives for MI and noticing that most of the stories are AU and usually very OOC. The point of the series is the magic, but most of them take place in the real world.

Well what the hell is the point of that! It's like Harry Potter without magic, or Leviathan set in the modern day.
MI is Mortal Instruments, I assume.

No, but I've heard of it. Like I said before to someone else; not a huge magic/fantasy fan.

I like MI and a few others, but the majority of what's coming out right now is pretty bad :P Disappointing. So much potential symbolism!

Ageed. A lot of people are trying to ride the wave of Twilight's success. Which is frustrating, because it means no good steampunk is coming out.

And no original plot lines. Or themes. I like messages. They keep things interesting.

Do which one? An original fantasy with an actual message? That's my current endeavor :D

Yeah, pretty much. Good, now I have more reason to read your stuff. And I'll work on my post-apocolyptic eugenics virus idea.

THAT sounds interesting. We might need to do a story trade sometime soon.
