Let's be honest here. The main problems with yuri stories is the oversaturated fluff.
>>
Fanfiction commandments:

1) Don't use honorifics.
2) Don't write in first person.
3) Don't write in second person. It was novel when it first appeared but now it's a gimmick.
4) Don't use dream sequences.
5) Don't reintroduce every character as if the reader has no clue who they are.
6) If you're writing a poignant one-shot, write in present tense.
7) Don't put "I'm bad at summaries" in your summary.
8) Don't cram in every tag you can.
9) Don't beg for reviews.
10) If you're not writing porn, post it to FF.net.

99% of instances where these occur suck ass. No rule is absolute in writing, but unless you're an experienced writer who knows what you're doing, don't break these.

I like how it now implies that experienced writers should post on AO3.
>>
>>2514950
Why number 10, though? It seems like most /u/ friendly fic content, porn or not, gets posted on AO3 anyways nowadays.
>>
>>2514955
Most people expect sex on Ao3 nowadays.
>>
>>2514954
nothing of that sort was implied. If anything, ao3 has higher average quality than ff.net. ao3 is a piece of shit though. you can post stories to both sites

>>2514952
Everything in writing is "personal preference." Liking Twilight and dan brown novels is "personal preference." Doesn't stop them from being shit.

They're only personal preference in the sense that maybe one troglodyte out of ten will like it. Don't do it.
>>
>>2514955
for most fandoms, especially anime and vidya and older fandoms, ff.net has exponentially higher viewer count than ao3. If you want more people to read your stories, if you want more reviews, post it to ff.net
>>
>>2514950
Great another shitposting thread. Might as well not continue these threads if it's come to this.

I liked it anon. 'Twas a nice set up and if you write more, I'm interested in the supposed history the two have. I doubt Ivy would be cuddly with just anyone.
>>
>>2511743

i haven't actually played any of the portal games.

there's some weird tense agreement stuff going on, and typos or incorrect turns of phrase that are jarring.

>The shed she'd been evicted from shrank with distance. But it remained perfectly still.

i'm not sure if you meant to use "with distance". "in the distance" is more common.

overall you could trim things, one part that stood out to me was when chell was grabbing the bars out of the vending machine. you can just say she shoved them in a backpack without needing to specify why.

there are some really nice lines in there though.

>Well, you're not really, since this is an anonymous board. Even if the writer has a pseudonym on ff or ao3, that's still not public. But I get you.

yeah, that's true. one of my concerns is that once one person posts something, sometimes everyone else finds they need to agree or disagree with them. and then the author gets dogpiled which is kind of shitty.
>>
>>2514942
I am part of the problem.

I will not apologize.
>>
>>2514950
>writing in present tense

You forgot: Don't use AO3
>>
>>2514961
For Western tv shows, though, ao3 is where it's at. I'm in the Supercorp fandom and there are 3 times as many Supergirl fics on ao3 than on ffnet. There's only one Supergirl fic on ffnet that has 1000+ reviews, while on ao3 40+ fics break 1000 reviews.
>>
>>2514987
The phrasing is because I'm not an english native. It would get editing for the typos and bad sentences anyway.

>sometimes everyone else finds they need to agree or disagree with them.

Well, that's the internet. I am of the firm belief that quality argumentation is dying.

Thanks, though.
>>
>>2514975
Thanks, setting up the banter and back and forth about how terrible the world was was the easy part. I guess I'll try to make another one some time soon.

And I guess it really is the best Amy / Ivy fic in existence right now. It's feeling pretty lonely too.
>>
Is it just me or do most AO3 fics have a certain writing style? This is something I've noticed across writers. The most noticeable characteristics are the following:

> Written in present tense.
> Colloquial, slangy style, even when not in dialogue. (ex: "it kinda feels like her heart is about to pound out of her chest")

This doesn't seem to be as big a thing on FF.net.
>>
>>2514959
Not that anon but while I could maybe agree with the second two points, the 4th one is entirely dependent on why and how its being used and the quality of the depiction. The 5th makes sense if its anything with AU involved and once again is pretty dependent on how it's done.

And the first point is not really accurate. Unnecessary honorifics could certainly be omitted, but there's a lot of relationships whose dynamic is displayed via honorifics in dialogue. If anything the more accurate guideline would be "attempt to translate honorifics when possible", since I assume you're specifically referring to Japanese ones annoying you. OP is a good example of a relationship where lack of honorifics is out of character, particularly if the fic is set pre-separation.
>>
Really, the one rule of writing is to have the skill to make it work and then to use it.

Honorifics can be made to work, you just have to be skilled enough to not sound like a tragic case of weebness. First person an work just fine, for example The murder of Roger Ackroyd uses it nicely. Second person can work, I've seen it in French, and so on.

However writing "I'm bad at summaries" is bad and so is a procession of "What if Sururov had died at Kinburn? And what if his soul had migrated over to Gamindustri?" Both are probably going to make people flee.

(And if I see another ' "Can you truly affirm it is so?", affirmed the charming heiress.' I'm going to be impotently unhappy.)
>>
>>2514950
>1) Don't use honorifics.
Wrong again

>not writing in present tense

present tense is a fucking cheat code. It instantly makes adds +100 poignancy, +100 immediacy. It's absurd. For almost no work you can make your story better
>>
>>2515205
Dream sequences are the ultimate cliche. They're the first resort of bad authors who just learned about foreshadowing and want an "wow I'm being so literary" way to use foreshadowing. It's terrible in fanfiction and equally terrible in fiction. Every time I see a dream sequence I grown mentally.

Honorifics are similarly terrible. You're writing in English, not Japanese. It makes you look like an illiterate weaboo. For hundreds of years English authors have depicted subtle relationships without honorifics; hell, even many Japanese-translated books leave out honorifics. If you need honorifics to depict relationships, you're not trying hard enough.

All dreams are foreshadowing?

>For hundreds of years English authors have depicted subtle relationships without honorifics
This is just outright, objectively wrong. You know that English has honorifics, right? And that they are exceedingly common and used all the time in regular speech to indicate relationships?
>>
>>2515264
we're obviously talking about Japanese honorfics you dumb faggot. No English author has ever thought "wow I really need to use -chan here to indicate closeness." It's perfectly possible to write relationships without honorifics, if you have to rely on honorifics, you're not trying hard enough.

Almost every dream sequence I've read is foreshadowing. The remainder is flashback. Both are equally cliche and suck ass.
>>
>>2515261
I actually just wrote a wet dream sequence. I guess I'll have to take it out now.
>>
>>2515268
You should. It's not the subtle way to show subconscious desire like you think it is. If you want to keep it in for porn reasons do whatever you want (standards in porn are shockingly, shockingly low, look no further than 50 shades), but if the story is serious at all, take it out.
>>
>>2515257
Present tense always feels claustrophobic and breathless to me. All in all, it's a good fit for fanfiction, which tends to place focus on the development of a relationship and all the intense feelings it brings.

Your response to:
>If anything the more accurate guideline would be "attempt to translate honorifics when possible" since I assume you're specifically referring to Japanese ones annoying you.
was to continue whining about honorifics and how English authors have existed for hundreds of years without them. It's not my fault you're either bad at reading or decided to rant without actually responding to what I said.

>No English author has ever thought "wow I really need to use -chan here to indicate closeness."
No. But most English authors writing a character that is a maid or servant of some kind will probably think "wow, I should really use Mr./Ms./Mrs./Lady/Lord here to indicate the realistic speech you'd find in a relationship with this status difference." This sounds like a you problem, not a writing problem. If you're writing Japanese characters, one using Yoruichi-sama, instead of Lady Yoruichi isn't all that big a deal. You're just a bit autistic. Personally I'd much rather see someone use "(o)nee-chan/san" than "big sis" which seems awkward and unnatural for anyone who isn't under the age of 10, or a first name, which shows a much lower degree of intimacy. Perhaps you should try being less easily triggered?

you don't use either you idiot. that's my point. Nobody calls their sibling "big sis" in English. You just use their name.
>>
>>2515282
>ignoring the massive difference inherent in calling someone by their first name in Japanese culture
I don't know what your prose is like, but I think you're missing one of the basic underpinnings of good fanfiction.

I'm not getting into this with you either way, it just seemed like such a massive oversight.
>>
>>2515310
any relationships can be described without the use of honorifics

that's literally my point

using honorifics to avoid doing the work of, you know, actually showing their relationship, is the lazy, weaboo way
>>
>>2515316
>to avoid doing the work of, you know, actually showing their relationship
>it's not like dialogue is the primary form of building and reinforcing relationships for all normal functioning human beings
>btw please be patient, I have autism
>>
The key problem with honorifics is when they aren't from the language you are writing in, they sound a bit awkward and when coupled with weeb syndrome suspicion they sound really awkward.

But so long as they aren't slipped in a work where they make no sense it works. Just don't do a weaboo translator thing where donuts become agepan and Duke Nominoë becomes Duke-dono.

It's fine, it's all fine. Now, said-bookisms, that's a real crime.

"It's when you use other words to replace 'said' in your dialogue," erupted the blonde woman.
"Can't they be useful sometimes?" asked the brunette.
"How would I know?" haughtily declared the charming heiress.
"That just sounded wrong," decisively ejaculated the lithe sorceress.

You get the idea, like purple prose and pretty much anything else, it has its uses but is used far more often than necessary. Please note the question followed by "declared", I've actually already seen that one in a published book.
>>
>>2515405
Ah yeah, I'm familiar with the crime, but haven't seen that term before. I'm probably a bit guilty of it myself, but I usually just try to get everything out first and then pare from there.

Being ESL I gotta wonder, for other ESLs actually like reading Japanese honorifics in English, why? I'm just asking because as someone used to reading things in a foreign language it seems like such a weird thing to want. I've been consuming anime/manga in english for so many years that I don't bat much of an eye at it there, but whenever I try reading a fic or webnovel or what-have-you that uses Japanese honorifics, I generally can't take it and have to stop reading. It just reads absolutely terrible to me compared to anything written in proper English.
>>
>>2515436
As an ESL speaker I absolutely hate them but I'm willing to put up with them. For example, I'm willing to put up with them in To The Stars but it's mostly because I'm here for the plot and the science fiction. (The military and organization makes me shake my head, though. It's like he doesn't know of the advances in the staff system since the late 19th century.) (But at least we're getting some answers along with the new questions so that's better than before.)
>>

Before these two threads I've never even considered the possibility of getting mad over characters in fics calling each other the same as in canon. It's the pettiest shit I can imagine.

Not really.

It's pretty good as a somewhat too long science novel with an author who loves to write a lot and, of course, it's science fiction so you'll get a pretty good idea of the author's tastes re: sex. (polycentenarian lesbian cyborg magical girls)

It has the advantage that hieronym doesn't make everyone stupid for the sake of a plot point and that's just extremely refreshing. (Except the parts where military command and control, actually command and control in general, is already a lot more advanced than what he describes.)

Present tense in general is on the rise in fiction iirc.

Also if people are primarily reading on ao3 it's going to influence what they create. I know that happened to me. Read too much present tense, ended up writing in present tense.

Now I have to consciously write in past tense if I want to.

>>
>>2515472
It's an interesting extrapolation of what we see in PMMM several centuries into the future. I like it as a sci-fi fan, but the fic is too separated from the anime setting (both time-wise and in how much focus the main cast get) for me to consider it proper Madoka fanfic. Not that I mind.
>>
>>2515570
Present tense adds immediacy. It makes everything more emotional, more poignant - all without you having to do a damn thing except change the tense. It's insane how much more gravitas it adds to your story. The only reason not to do it all the time is that it can be tiring in long works, for both reader and writer. But if you're writing a one-shot, you should absolutely do it in present tense.
>>
>>2515449
I'm assuming it's Madoka/Homura and/or Sayaka/Kyouko?
>>
>>2515436
congratulations, you actually have taste and likely have a better grasp of the English language than most native speakers

anyone who understand English cringe at honorifics in writing
>>
>>2515587
The story focuses on an original character who contracts early on in the story. Madoka is still stuck as Madokami (the fic started prior to Rebellion) and Homura is angsting about being separated from her. Kyouko is trying to move on from Sayaka who died long ago (as per anime canon) without much success.

Highly disturbing, and the author made a point of experimenting with the prose throughout it (to varying degrees of success), but there are some brilliant twists and turns to the story; and although it's unpredictable, it is so in a fair way, with many hints to shocking events and revelations that come much later.

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8233291/1/
More straightforwardly "dark" than the first and with some admitted influence from it. I would say it's not as good, and it certainly doesn't have the constant surprises of the first, but it's also much more "standard" in its style--which may or may not be a good thing depending on your preference--and it never comes even close to being as disturbing as the first one. A lot of thought was put into the way magic works, and if I remember correctly, it also has much more action.

It's a nigh-objectively terrible use of epistolary. The chapters read like a summary, which, contrary to what the author seems to think, is NOT how to write an epistolary fic. if you've read epistolary novels like Dracula, you'll realize that it puts you in the moment -most of it reads like a regular first-person narrative. It's a tad unbelievable that someone will write like that in a journal, but that's a believable compromise. Writing an epistolary like you're ACTUALLY writing in a journal, i.e. just summarizing what happened, just reads like a Sparknotes version of the real story. It's terribly done.

Oh, and the script-like dialogue sections are so terrible I shouldn't even have to say why
>>
>>2516413
It was a Daniel centric Stargate piece revolving around parallel versions of Daniels switching places. But not in any clever or fun way, just the most basic and unimaginative plotpoints. It did have a f/f tag which is how happened on it, but never got far enough to find out who.
>>2516461
Mostly right, though it was many versions Daniel Stues and everyone else accomodating them and being unable or to advance the plot.
>>
>>2514950
Added to this:

Brevity is the soul wit. Don't say in 1000 words what you can say in 100.
If you write from a character's POV and delve into their heads, don't spend a paragraph exploring their thoughts, then have them repeat those thoughts out loud in dialogue. Too many writers do that and I always find myself either skipping large portions of their story and reading only the dialogue or outright closing the story.
Learn how grammar works. It's not that hard.
If you use 'could of' 'should of' 'would of' etc. instead of 'could've' 'should've' 'would've' etc. I hope lightning strikes you the next time you take a dump.

Two of the most overused fanfic premise in SB combined into one. Those two meeting under that circumstance is like destiny or some shit, which is why i'm rooting for Louise x Taylor to happen.

Always.

>>
>>2517325
I find that most things between plot points happen naturally when the characters are in the same place, with the writer's job being to shine a light on the more interesting moments.
When I struggle with in-between scenes, I try to think about the characters and what they would do in that or a hypothetical situation, and what other characters would think of their actions. If one interaction is particularly interesting or amusing, I think of ways it might occur, and I add it if I think it will work to further explore the characters.

Woke up feeling like writing a smutty Ichigo Mashimaro fic, realized I can't write, went back to sleep.
It's probably for the best, as all it would've been is certain scenes from the manga, except Miu, the MC, has sex with the rest of the girls.

1) Acceptable.
2) No, some fics need this due to the original source material.
3) Maybe.
4) Fuck you.
5) Sometimes correct.
6) This is more taste shit.
7) Yes.
8) Yaaas. Still some good shit in tagspam stories.
9) Meh, I've not seen much correlation 'tween begging and shite writing.
10) This. FFnet has patrollers to delete shit.
>>
>>2517767
you're wrong in every you disagree with faggot. The only thing right about what you said is first person is acceptable (even encouraged) in fics based on first-person novels, but this is so rare (we're predominantly anime/western shitshows) that it's barely worth mentioning.

I honestly have no idea for the discrepancy. Same fandom, posted a year apart but that can't be the entire story. How does one fic have 3.4k views and the other have 155?

not exactly /u/ but RWBY's pretty close
>>

I guess descriptions really are everything? That's the only thing I can think of...
>>
>>2518071
Hmm, that might be it. I'm bad at writing summaries and do it at the last second before I post a fic.

>A mother is perfect to her daughter. Or, how Crescent Rose is born. [Years later, when Weiss mockingly declares that Ruby loves her weapon as if it is her own flesh and blood, Weiss – whose Myrtenaster has been bought with a king's ransom – will never understand just how close she is to the truth.]

>Battle is a dance. Or, Weiss's graduation ceremony. [Performance is not sport but art, and, above all else, perfection is not an end but a journey.]

Is there really such a big difference between the two summaries?
>>
>>2518081
>I'm bad at writing summaries

Everyone is. Fanfic or not. Which is why I never give much attention to them.

>>2517837
Right, I get a chance to put on the old editor’s cap again. I hope you won’t mind if I offer some critique.

First, you say you are struggling with writing an introduction. Well you can take a leaf from both the intro of the VN and the first episode of the UBW series, in having Rin going to school and meeting Ayako there. This gives a chance to see them interact and establish their Vitriolic nature of their friendship. It would help if we got a chance to see them interact before your scene at the archery range, just the two of them. Perhaps Rin asking herself why they’re friends, what Ayako sees in her and vice-versa. Their friendship should be set up before we move it towards something else.

I would also say that a theme of the story besides the consummation of sex is Rin realizing that she has a thing for girls as well. After all, in the VN she didn’t know she was bisexual until she was lying on top of a naked girl, and what you’re doing is a similar coming out scenario with far less dire urgency to it. So Rin might be asking herself why she’s getting these feelings for a friend of hers and what that means. Perhaps a well-timed erotic dream the night before that only adds to her confusion and makes her more open to actually trying to sort out these feelings of hers and gives her good reason to want to study with her. You can certainly go deeper than you currently have it in the story, and the build-up is vital to getting a good pay-off beyond just the usual smut.

It may sound daunting, but you clearly have skill and I think if you test yourself a bit you’ll come out of it a better writer.

>>
>>2518940
Same here, but I think To the Stars is an example of it done right. The story doesn't focus on the characters from the anime, it mostly just takes the setting, dials it forward several centuries and describes what the lives of Puella Magi would be like in those times.

That's also why I said I don't think of it as a 'proper' Madoka fanfic. If you wanted to read about Madoka x Homura or Kyouko x Sayaka it's the worst place to look.

I remember a Lucky Star fanfic being recommended here. It was smut, and featured Konata doing Kagami, then Tsukasa or both. Does anyone remember how it was called?

If you're worrying about being a bad writer, just remember, at least you don't write descriptions of breast size as a mandatory introduction paragraph before anything can actually happen.

I'll never understand why people read/write fanfiction for porn - both /u/ and otherwise. I read/write fanfiction to explore characters and concepts in the world, and it's no exaggeration to say I've read fanfiction better than the original. Fanfiction - and stories in general - work best when they achieve potential that was present. Not to say that it's impossible to say something poignant with porn, but when 90% of text is porn it's hard to take it seriously.

If I wanted to jerk off I'll go watch porn or read some doujins.

no, and that's my point. But I've read at least one well-written, meaningful fic that also happened to be brimming with lemons
>>
>>2519458
Thanks for telling us? Are you having trouble separating that a work of fiction can be both meaningful and silly?
>>
>>2519459
I see reading comprehension is not your strong suit. Ironic, since you're on a fanfiction thread
>>
>>2519448
For some people that potential is how best to masturbate to fictional characters.
>>
>>2519448
I, too, get extremely confused when people like things I don't like, and type paragraphs about my personal wank preferences.
>>
>>2519458
Do you complain about that when you watch porn too?
Some people just want to get off. Being poignant is rarely a focus.

I think what you are saying is that it's incongruous for a fic to both have excessive lemons as well as an overarching story because porn does not go well with anything substantial.
>>
>>2519460
Sorry I thought you weren't serious, especially since you're complaining about how fanfics are xyz while you think they're better suited for just x and y. It's almost as if erotica/smut is another facet of fanfics. The way you're posting it sounds as if some smut mugged you about a month ago and you're trying to figure out why
>>
>>2519448
Careful, this is dangerously close to "fanservice doesn't belong in Serious Anime" - you'll set off the /a/utists
>>
>>2519468
It's more like "an anime with 90% fanservice and nothing else can't be serious."
>>
>>2519448
>it's no exaggeration to say I've read fanfiction better than the original
It's also no exaggeration to say written porn exists that is hotter than the sexiest doujins or videos.
>>
>>2519469
And I'd agree, they have their value if that's all you're looking for, just like any other medium
>>
>>2518214
Thanks for the critique, it's highly appreciated. I actually did plan for Rin to have an erotic dream and masturbate before she went to school, but I took it out after I posted >>2515268 and it seemed like the consensus was that dream sequences were cliche. I left in the part where Rin admits to having a wet dream about Ayako, as it was originally going to be a callback to the earlier part of the story but I left it in after I rewrote the beginning because it still seemed to fit the conversation anyway.

I really like your idea of showing Rin and Ayako's relationship before the archery range to establish their relationship. I've never really written anything besides pure smut, but I'm definitely interested in trying to make it more of a full story instead of just porn for a change. Thanks again.

>>2519508
What about KOSMOS? Her boobs are cannons, right?
>>
>>2519504
Terrible advice.

>The dark haired woman drew strands of hair from her face as she licked her friend deeply and slowly
>the elf drew her hand from the human's sex easily

jesus that is painful to read. Any authors out there: don't do this.

The pronoun problem isn't a big problem. Just use the character's names if you find it confusing who "she" is referring to. Trust me, it's much less awkward than you think it is
>>
>>2519512
No, I think it's just that she has the framework for a cannon built around her chest, which then fold out and combine into one in front of her boobs.

Because why wouldn't you put a cannon there?
>>
>>2519515
Meanwhile I've had other people tell me that just endlessly repeating a character's name is terrible form.

I think the advice I've been given in the past that made the most sense to me was to periodically use the names at establishing points and then keep pronoun use consistent with the order in which you established the characters who're presently acting.
>>
>>2519515
In my (rather limited) experience, the characters' names are generally enough. Sprinkle in a few descriptors like "heiress" or "brawler" in strategic places to put enough distance between the repetitive parts to make the reader forget about them.
>>
>>2519365

No thread has consistently linked to those archives in 3+ years. Grow the fuck up.

I assume sharing the Mega was also hoarder anon trying to stop retarded anons asking for copies of the same western fics every other goddamn thread because neither you nor they know how to check old threads.
>>
>>2519520

Sticking to one character per paragraph/few sentences also helps, but as >>2519521 said just use their names. Descriptors get too annoying after a while.
>>
>>2519520
obviously you shouldn't repeat people's names at every opportunity. Just do so when "she" becomes ambiguous

What you should NOT do is replace every instance with "the dark-haired elf" or "the woman with blue eyes" or "the rich, beautiful heiress"

>>2519522
So instead of linking actually wanted fics, the solution is to link a shitty mega archive filled with stuff nobody cares about. Brilliant.

You and the other anon, should just really lurk if you're trying to peg some sort of general taste when it's subjective to begin with.

I don't need to, but House has certainly been discussed on the western threads in the past, so it's presumably of interest to someone. Any particular reason you're incapable of skipping past the parts of the archive that aren't of interest to you?
>>
>>2519562
It's a Neptunia fanfic where the author, instead of referring to the character by their name or something else, used "[hair color]ette", and did so at least once a phrase.

It's unfortunate, as the smut was right my alley but the [hair color]ette things made me want to set my eyes on fire.
>>
>>2519559
this veers into so bad it's good
>>
>>2519472
On some levels I agree with what >>2519448 has to say. Porn is alright in and of itself, but of you can establish an actual connection between the characters, then it elevates the porn. You need to know and care for characters before they go to bed together.

And testing yourself by writing something more than pure smut is a good thing. Expand your writing horizons and really push the boat out. You may find that the actual sex scene itself changes as the context of it changes and how it comes about is altered. It certainly gives you a lot of room to play around in writing-wise.
>>

Do you see anyone talking about Western fandoms? No. Only the fag complaining because OP didnt dig up threads from four years ago for dead links is talking about them.

No one comes to /u/ for Western fandoms, but invariably retards sometimes ask for the same Western fics over and over again, which is why the link was put in the OP in the first place.

Now can we get back to talking about /u/ and not have this thread turn into a circle jerk?
>>
>>2519642
>go directly to what they like
Oh yeah, this thread is really stopping them anon. It's not themselves that are the problem. Get it together and realize there's no issue to address.
>>
>>2519617
Splitting up the fanfiction thread is a death sentence, moreso for westernshit than anime. /u/ is too slow to split a single thread into two subthreads. The best solution is to purge all westernshit from /u/
>>
>>2519643
>No one comes to /u/ for Western fandoms,
Don't be as dumb as the person you're talking down to especially in this thread.
>>
>>2519645

Then where do I get my Kigo fix?
>>
>>2519646
>>2519643
you're both fucking retarded lmao
>>
>>2519643
I really doubt a western thread would die if you bumped it every couple of days or so, I remember we always having a Xena thread in the OP and you claim western content is not proeminent I just think that there's 0 harm in doing it
>>
Since asshurt weebs think they're opinions are valid, can the anon's speaking sense please sage. This thread doesn't need to be on the front page constantly while arguing over this.

That's kinda rude, I was just giving my opinion, yes I am a weeb so what
>>
>>2519651

I don't think weeb realises they're on 4ch
>>
>>2519651
Anon you're opinion, though it may be, is in the vein of
>why don't we split /u/ into an east/u/ and west/u/ like Berlin
A very annoying meta topic that often gets brought up by clueless or willfully ignorant weebs that think western content is the bane of their problems and doesn't realize how slow /u/ is as a board. As evidenced within the past, like, ten minutes since it started you have several anons foolishly ignoring thread history while acting as if their scapegoat is the source of problems.

Lurk and you'll realize there's an ebb and flow to these threads that's like the tide when it comes to eastern and western requests/discussion. This thread is fine as is and doesn't need to be split up under the guise of "no harm" just because some weebs are a little sore.
>>
>>2519656
I'm just talking about fanfiction, other stuff is easier to avoid, but it's a big incovenience having a thread full of things I have no interest for and never will
>>
>>2519658
So-it's lazinesss. Okay, yeah just fucking make a request or go back to the shadows. It's very easy to start up a discussion about whatever thread topic you feckin want, nothing is preventing you outside of an outgoing discussion. Even the earlier tantrum could've been avoided if those anons didn't come off as the cockheads that they were asking about the two ffn blanket archives that were literally gone for years before they caught it. Cause, spoilers, even those links have western content in it but I guess they're too blind to realize it.

This thread and board isn't made to specifically cater to you and get you off while saying what a good person you are.
>>
>>2519658
So make the thread full of things that do interest you. Post what you like instead of crying.
Based on your posting thus far, I have to assume your #1 interest is meta whining.
>>
Hey, does anyone like fanfiction?

>>2519532
i'm pretty sure 1/3 of the thread is the same salty fucker complaining about different things at this point.
>>
>>2519666
Satan, it's laziness. Stop lying to yourself and start asking for eastern stuff if you're this analpained over it.
>>
>>2519666
I don't believe you.
>>
>>2519664
I do, though I wish there was more fandoms that catered to romance involving older women.
>>
>>2519667
I like discovering new stuff instead of asking for it, I'm really not trying to troll you or anything, I just really think it would be a good way of people finding stuff they like more easily
>>
>>2519670
You want to go archive diving. You literally don't need this thread for it. You're complaining is pointless because of the way you like to find stuff. Why are you visiting these threads?
>>
>>2519670
If only there were sites that were 100% dedicated to compiling fanfiction instead of anonymous message boards of people with many different interests
>>
>>2519669

Define older? 30s, 40s?
>>
>>2519674

If only the weeb knew there was a site dedicated to anime and manga that people used to track what they watched and also find recs.
>>
>>2519671
Because I like fanfiction, here's one I really liked https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7026220/1/The-Celestial-s-Song-Bird

It's easier to stumble upon stuff like this if everyone has common interests
>>
>>2519665

Dear anon, I think I love you. You just handed me my favorite kink on a silver platter. Excuse me while I go in search of more, and thank you for the link.
>>
>>2519675
Bingo, or even 50. A lot of the stuff that features it, via age-gap, often is from the younger girl's pov. I suppose if I'm really hard up I can also go browse nifty. I also like "Escalation" type fics where the MC goes through a gradual powerboost throughout the fic and becomes a force to be reckoned with, though those tend to be a gamble most of the time. Especially with f/f couples.
>>
>>2519678
>if everyone has common interests
Anon guess what's the common interest pinning this thread together.
Protip:It's girls loving girls.
>>
>>2519664
I wish I understood what RSS feeds were because I check multiple fandoms dozens of times daily for updates
>>
>>2519682
Since you know I'm a weeb then you also know we have a preety big divergence in taste, If they aren't anime girls I simply can't get interested
>>
>>2519683
nobody uses them anymore, you're 10 years too late
>>
>>2519684
Sounds like a (You) problem, not a thread problem.
>>
>>2519686
Maybe, tough I think I may not be the only one
>>
>>2519684
That's too bad. I was the same way, but I broadened my interests and now I...get off somewhat more often
>>
>>2519687
Nah, it's you because you can't adapt and figure out a way to ask for recs and you think it's a huge problem when it's not.
>>
>>2519680

Do you have any preferences in the way of genres, e.g sci-fi, fantasy, real world based?

Since it's older women, you're somewhat restricted to western fandoms, and slightly older fandoms at that.
>>
>>2519692
Not really and I still periodically check the kigo fandom so sifting through a fandom's tomb won't bother me. I suppose it's just summaries not really grabbing my interest for some.
>>
>>2519691

There isn't enough activity to warrant the division, as another anon has said. All you have to do is post 'Does anyone have recs that involve x or y' and see what people say. It's not that fucking hard, or maybe you could use Google and find fandoms yourself.
>>
>>2519679
I love you too?

Youre welcome, I'm really glad you like it! It's one of my favorite fics so it's great to be able to share it with someone and make them happy.

What's the kink tho
>>
>>2519698

Underage. (Don't mind me, I'm a happy drunk.)
>>
>>2519694

NA

Have you tried Supergirl, specifically Kara/Cat? I can't attest to the quality but there's an age gap, and Cat is a media mogul.
>>
>>2519705
It's been a while so I could check again, thanks. Got anything that stands against time?
>>
>>2519707

It's a no superpower AU, but Cat is still a powerful woman and Kara is basically her hot neighbour. Cat still has her son though, so he's involved a bit throughout the fic.

https://archiveofourown.org/works/6833449
>>
>>2519694
This might sound odd, but have you tried overwatch? A lot of it probably won't fit but the characters are adults, with a few from 30-60 so you've got something to start with at least. Can rec further if you would like.

>>2519701
Good on you! Happy hunting! Don't forget to drink water!
>>
>>2519707
>Got anything that stands against time?
Civilization fanfics?
>>
if a fic is f/f/m does it still count as yuri?
>>
>>2519739
>any /m
No.
>>
>>2519739

Not unless that 'm' is a cross dressing female.
>>
>>2519588
It was a good dozen chapters in before it hooked me, but it went on far too long and just petered out, like the author had lost interest before the end.
>>
>>2519299

Madoka is in the queue, along with 20+ eastern fandoms I'm not overly familiar with, so please give me a chance to actually sort these fics into pairings rather than have some chaotic mess of untitled epubs.

The pile of western fics are mostly from a torrent, which you'd know if you checked old threads to find out what's been going on. And since I'm not being paid to try and turn every femslash/yuri fic I find into an epub, I do it when I can, so it's taken a little longer than I'd like just to get two more Sailor Moon ships up.
>>
>>2519606
Pretty much, I'm finishing my second one. It's going a lot faster this time.

>>2519729
Sure. I just meant anything particularly old that's still good.

>>2520246
Civilization Revolution 1 for consoles I think put the most effort into making the rulers young and openly attractive, so much so the second rev game and civ 6 toned down the cleavage and open skin again. This concept art is actually also slightly toned down from Catherine's bust popping up, and Cleopatra has a gold strapless bra.

Sleepovers. Nail polish. You know the rest

It's been a decade and I've yet to read a fic that still does it for me like Truth and Measure. It's amazing how it still stands the test of time.
>>
>>2520279
>tfw I don't know the rest because I never got invited to any sleepovers

I still wish the last chapter was the length of the others. Everything was nice and detailed and suddenly a short one at the end. Otherwise, pretty much a perfect fic.

There was one involving a bartender at a gay bar and some woman. The bartender thinks that she's straight but the woman successfully seduces her. I forgot everything else.

Read some actual good stuff then, for example Dezopenguin is pretty good.

>sporking

Haven't heard that in years.

Question for any britbongs in the thread, is using "fags" for cigs still in fashion? The story is set in the 1940s but I don't want to drag people out of the fic by getting too archaic.
>>
>>2522077
>The act of spooning with the addition of an erection.
que?
>>
>>2522603
It's when you take a really terrible fic, pick out the best bits and add your commentary.

'Read this, just this: "Her lucent gyrating golden orbs suffused me with delight and felt to the touch as bags of sand as all bazongas should." it makes me want to stab my eyes out with a spork.'

So please tell me about your current projects.
>>
>>2521753
Love it, Amy's so very cute and Ivy's as sultry as I hoped she would be after the initial hesitance. I do hope, if you continue writing, that there's a section or two devoted to them being the biting couple or just having couple moments that isn't sexy. Like how they were going to help Amy's maid with a nice pair of glasses
>>
>>2520259
She doesn't look like she's enjoying it very much
>>
>>2523622

Thank you, I aim to please. (So I'm shoving those in a text file for later.)
>>
>>2520294
I finally started reading it after seeing its praises sung in these threads for years. I'm a sucker for slowburn, so I can't see how it took me this long to read a fic where the leads don't become galpals until 300 pages in.
>>
>>2522882
I finished something I started in October. Needs editing and a beta but it's nice to have everything where it should be.
