So you got saddled with my FemslashEx requests. I'm sorry. I hope it's not too bad.
These are the things I require in a fic. As in, if these aren't there, I'll stop reading.
- Reasonably correct spelling. It doesn't have to be perfect, but I don't want to have to guess at alternative words to figure out the meaning of the sentences, if you see what I mean.
- Reasonable grammar. As in, please choose a tense and stick with it. Yes, you can have various segments of your story in different tenses, if that's what the story demands. I just don't want that thing were it flips wildly from past to present between sentences.
- Please don't write in the second person. At all. Very, very few people are good enough writers to get away with that. And that includes professional writers. So unless you're the ghost of Italo Calvino, please don't. At least not in this story.
That's pretty much it.
