Fic Positivity Feedback Meme


inspired by previous feedback memes

since leaving authors positive comments is all the rage right now, this is a catch-all feedback meme for all any of your favorite authors! want to compliment an author's writing in general, not just a specific fic? this is the place to do it!

anonymous commenting is on.

1. writers: leave a comment with your username, writing journal, comm, or ao3. please also mention if you'd like constructive criticism since concrit can be positive!

          dreamwidth: <user name="username">
          livejournal: <user name="username" site="">
          ao3: <user name="username" site="">

you can link your thread by copying the link in the (link) section of the comment, and pasting it elsewhere to plug your thread!

2. readers and commenters: leave a reply to the individual writer's thread (this can be done by clicking "reply to this" of the writer's comment to ensure that your reply is going to the right place) with your positive feedback.

please respect the authors' wishes if they would like concrit or not.

3. have fun and be kind! this is a post for fic positivity only :)

4. plugging your thread: use this code! or plug on tumblr!

"Per ardua ad astra" has been a ray of sunshine that I swear has been helping me through grad school apps for months now. Every time I see that it's updated, or that I see you talking about it on tumblr, it's given me a little bit of good mood that carries with me all day :)

Oh, thank you so much! I started it as I finished my applications and had the nail-biting wait along with everything else, so definitely mutually therapeutic :)

Also, I really did smile about the "talking about it on tumblr," too. Occasionally I think I shouldn't (does that ruin suspense? maybe it's tedious? maybe people just want me to write more and talk about it less???), but it's very encouraging for me, so I'm genuinely glad it's fun for other people!

This is probably a weird thing to say, but I like how... well edited your writing is. The pace is always so tight, and each scene is precisely long enough with enough subtlety for fifty rereads for all the underlying meaning. And that's on top of the excellent characterization!

Your Lucy Skywalker fics are probably my favourite overall, but I'm enjoying all the Jyn/Cassian too. Also, I can't believe that a Matchmaker fic exists but I'm so glad that it does.

Not weird at all! It's actually very gratifying, because—heh, I used to be one of the editors for my university's pro lit magazine, and I was the one grumping OKAY BUT WHAT ABOUT THE BALANCE OF NARRATIVE MODES!!! I try to edit myself like I would anyone else, but of course it's never quite the same, and it's easy for the pace to feel very different when writing than it does when reading. I do always angst about it, so that's great to hear.

Oh, I had no idea you read Lucy at all! And the favourite? Awesome.

I am pretty sure I wrote the only Matchmakers fic in existence, haha. I always have such a love/frustration relationship with Camp, because her characters are so fun and intriguing but she almost never trusts them to actually carry the book. And Matchmakers was like... so much interesting stuff in the characters and relationships, so much derailing crime, lol. I have about six AU ideas every time I read, but I always figured nobody would read them. So thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed!

That is so very true re: Camp. The characters always have such interesting backstories and story arcs, but they inevitably leave me disappointed in the end because it always feels like more could have been done with them. More emotional battles to fight, more pushing the envelope. Not that it stops me from reading ever.

Which should make them catnip for fic--but I think it suffers from being a romance, because that big draw for fandom in general, shipping, has already been resolved.

Hey. It's been a while since we talked, but I really love your Ben Solo backstory, "Reyes". So much. Your portrayal of Han and Leia there in the bit where they were playing videogames as a family really warmed my heart, and you write Ben's character very realistically. Oh yeah, and your Lucy Skywalker fics have a unique premise and are incredibly well-written. Seriously.

You have the best Skywalker family fics I have read! From "50 things Luke Skywalker" and "Leia Organa" to "Too Late to go back to sleep" to "Lucy Skywalker" I JUST LOVE EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM. You really seem to caught the dynamics and personalities of the Skywalkers (mostly Anakin, Luke and Leia), and because of that I will forever love your fics <3

I have been reading your fic for years - ever since I first went on the hunt for Éowyn/Faramir fic - and been too much of an awed coward/tremendously awkward turtle to actually talk to you. Your fic, and your meta, show me new ways of seeing characters and stories. This is especially true of Pride and Prejudice, which I always liked, but which your work gave me a new insight into. I think a lot more about Austen now, when I read her.

Also, I really admire your recent fic/meta about Alderaanian as space Spanish. You have such a great way of really thinking through concepts that are often used in a simplistic fashion, and as someone who knows some Spanish but is lousy at telling the difference between different sorts of Spanish (this has previously got me into shit, yes) I love the way you've used those variants.

I just generally respect and admire your work. There may have been some undignified screeching when you named me as a Rogue One author whose work you liked. Okay, maybe there was a lot of screeching.
