Oddest review comment in a long time:

You ruin the story by adding kids! Please stop!

(and the only appearance in this story was a comment that they were asleep.)


I replied:

Sorry you don't like kids, but that's my story universe. In it, they are
a married couple raising a family and the kids are part of the package.
In this story, they've been married 11 years, have two kids, one of
them 10 years old, the other about 4, and Kagome is 29. It's married
people's romance, and that involves having to deal with the fact you
have kids to dodge for those special moments.

I've got over 400 stories in this story universe. The kids are woven well into it.

So, I cannot please stop.

What is it, people thinking they can tell fanfic authors who are doing this for love, and giving it away for free, especially established ones with lots of fics, how to write their fics?

lmao, this is just ridiculous! how are you going to tell someone how to write their own story? further more, how do kids 'ruin' it? I can understand some people don't like stories with children involved, but I wouldn't ever say they 'ruin' a story. wth?

LOL, have they met you?

It's married people's romance

And I guess the fanbrats don't realize marriage isn't just a 24-hr fuckathon? And that even if it was, children are sometimes the end result of sexytiemz? IDEK.

As my hubby likes to say, his folks made him at home in their spare time...LOL.

Obviously said reviewer was not very familiar with the stories I write...

Sometimes I think people forget about a magical device called "The Back Button."

I actually saw a secret on fandomsecrets the other day that said they hate it when people add kids to fanfic because of the world's overpopulations--that we shouldn't even be writing about more kids.

and telling someone how to write their own story... :| If they don't like it, they can write their own.

i don't like kids that much either but i would never tell an author not to write kids in their stories. i can also relate with the 'try and catch a little snuggle while they're occupied/distracted/asleep'. i think the little stolen moments you write about are all about romance and love -- those moments are so much sweeter because they have to work for them.

young people can be so stupid.

Brain damage or troll - intentional or unintentional. That's the only reason I can think that this person would say something like that. As Sesshoumaru would say 'Ridiculous'. You shouldn't have even bothered responding to the idiot. I wouldn't have.

I don't know where this person has been. The kids have been there for a long time.
