    1. Re: Rite of passage achieved!

      Just got my first 0.5 star rating.  I've been doing really well, I was at 23 on the trending list and #830 on the ranking.  So I'm sad, but also a 0.5 rating for no apparent reason seems to be a rite of (...)


    2. Re: What is considered an Isekai?

      Oh good, it's the "is a hot dog a sandwich" conversation again. Portal fantasies are pretty broadly defined.  Here's some things I wouldn't include: Time travel, especially if it's within normal (...)


    3. Re: Share your strong book opinions.

      Which is a real shame (no spoilers) what went on with Shallan in the 4th book. Sanderson was given a golden opportunity to redefine and decontextualize her entire character and really do something amazing. (...)


    4. Re: More views than the previous chapter

      Similarly if I switch from reading a story on one device to another device, that always results in my current chapter getting loaded once on each device. I forgot to keep an eye on this post and didn't (...)


    5. Re: Share your strong book opinions.

      Unpopular book opinion: while absurdly influential and unquestionably important, Lord of the Rings isn't that great by modern standards.  Much like so many other books, they're historically vital and foundational (...)


    6. Re: Someone was excited for an update!

      I got what I consider to be a big compliment last night.  I've been posting new chapters every M/W/F at 12:15 am and last night at 12:30 I glanced to make sure it had posted - it already had 12 views. (...)


    7. Re: More views than the previous chapter

      I don't pay that much attention on a chapter by chapter basis so I just checked mine and both fictions have a nice triangular pattern going, with the first having the most, and then slightly reduced (...)


    8. Re: More views than the previous chapter

      They might have seen it on the newly released list, clicked it, landed there, and not gone to the previous chapters yet. I wouldn't be too concerned about it. Yeah I'm not actually concerned, (...)


    9. Re: More views than the previous chapter

      My story only has a handful of people looking at it so the numbers are low enough that I notice when they do something strange. For whatever reason, chapter six has three more views than chapter five (...)


    10. Re: I am considering hosting a LitRPG tournament of sorts.

      Drop me a line if it looks like you'll actually do this.  I think the best thing would be to base it on an existing system - a tabletop RPG would probably be easiest, though you could use some video games. (...)


    11. Re: Isekaied MCs

      And Astrid Lindgren, Lewis Caroll, C.S. Lewis, and entire mythologies.  Nope, sorry, everyone who has ever written anything in this genre is garbage.  No exceptions.  Nobody actually liked Peter (...)


    12. Re: Isekaied MCs

      I actually address that in my fic.  In my case it's three things: The main character has been through some rough stuff, lived on the streets, etc. She has a plot-relevant emotional issue where sometimes (...)


    13. Re: Reverse Isekai

      Suddenly I'm picturing Enchanted.  


    14. Re: Favourite books on writing?

      Stephen King's 'On Writing' is fantastic. Ah, you beat me to it.  Well, I second that.  It's not only good for learning about writing, it's also a genuinely great read.


    15. Re: BOOYA! ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED! 500 VICTORY

      Based on the date of the first comment on your story, you've been writing 4,798.5 words per day.  That's absolutely absurd.  Even if we assume that you wrote the first however-many chapters prior to posting (...)


    16. Re: Leftover Apocalypse - a fantasy about the wrong doomsday

      I would definitely mention that the protagonist struggles with psychological issues.   Ah, good catch.  That's been added to the above, but more importantly to the actual fiction page.


    17. Re: Stories with female MC

      My story meets all your criteria.  Disclaimer: it is a Portal Fantasy / Isekai thing but I think it avoids some of the common pitfalls - there's an actual reason that the main character has been pulled (...)


    18. Re: May Thread - Promote your Story

      Leftover Apocalypse This is a story about the newly-adult Calliope Smith having a terrible day that ends in her getting teleported to another world where she almost dies from explosive decompression, (...)


    19. Re: Leftover Apocalypse - a fantasy about the wrong doomsday

      This is a story about the newly-adult Calliope Smith having a terrible day that ends in her getting teleported to another world where she almost dies from explosive decompression, allergies, microbes, (...)


    20. Re: Looking forward to being part of the community

      Hey everyone! I've been reading a few fictions on this site for a while, but have just recently started to write my own and have only today ventured into the forums. I've written a lot over the years (...)
