Post your opinions about the fanfics on this board, recommend fics, and critique them here.

I'd rather have the comments IN my fic thread, not that I get any.

I have a feeling we should keep the commenting close to the fic the comments are about. Funding- I don't understand this.

Yeah, honestly the authors would rather have the comments in the thread they're posting in then having to read them in some other separate thread.

Now this could be a fanfic recommendation thread . . .

Yes, this is now a fanfic recommendation thread.

It can also be used to discuss fics hosted elsewhere, if any are worth the effort.

True, "The World Without" could use some discussion. I just hope there's not like an entire thread dedicated to Gabriel Blessing's stuff.

In that case keep clear of TFF's "Unlmited Gabriel Blessing Works" thread. All GB, all of the time.

Yeah, I do like that fic.

I think it's dead, though, unfortunately.

Why not?

At least that way they won't spam the other threads with their swooning :p

Do we even have any GB fans here? Or at least, any willing to come out an face true Type-MOON fans that know better?

Nice analogy, Elf. Same here.

It's not dead. He just takes a REALLY long time to write chapters. I'm one of his betas and know him through LJ. It's still in progress, just it's a LONG progress.

And man, you're quick to call a story deceased you know that?

I mean, they're really not swoon worthy either.

I should post him a detailed critique at some point.

Tear him apart, Elf! Show now mercy with your harsh judgments of Shirou/Archer's character! Give him a what-for and one-two!

Ah, OK. I can understand that.

Hmm, yeah, looking at it he's published more recently than I thought he had....

Actually, thinking about it, I was thinking of an entirely different Sakura-centric story that I had been following. Yeah, looking at it The World Without doesn't seem to be as dead as I thought....

Eh, he was pretty decently in character, given that ZnT canon includes a personality-adjusting curse on the Gandalfr runes.

Fate/Black Reflection (http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5591380/1/) is pretty decent as well. I personally think that it powers the Fate characters a little further than is justified by the works, but otherwise there wouldn't be much in the way of conflict, so I'm willing to excuse it.

I wonder, does anyone her read Shadow Crystal Mage's stuff? His crack fics are excellent.

Here's a little gem I found on the Pit of Voles. It's called "Loyalty". http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6652936/1/Loyalty

Personally I can't stand Fate Black Reflection. It seems to be all about how great Ichigo is, when really, he's just a pale imitation of Shirou's awesomeness. The fact that it chooses to mix something awesome like Fate with something un-awesome like Bleach also offends my delicate sensibilities.

As long as the Naruto/Fate crossover does not get "recommended", I can breathe easily.

^ RAEG

The idea of such a thing inspires great RAEG in me!

Though, despite the claims of Naruto fans, I'm fairly certain most Servants could stomp the majority of most Naruto characters.

But I know that abomination you mentioned wouldn't be about that. It would be about how great Naruto is, how he's charming instead of Goddamn annoying, about how all women are insanely attracted to him, and about how powerful he really is.

Anyone ever read Toy Soldiers? A series of oneshots, but they're all pretty good. They vary in plot and theme, but most of them are basically "What if Shirou had a different Servant?" And boy, this fic answers this question well.

Wow. That was actually pretty damn good. Very introspective and thoughtful, and gets the point of each snippet across rather well.

Berserker's was my favorite, especially since he required that I imagine him speaking with Kevin Sorbo's voice. :D

Ahhh, nostalgia. Gilgamesh's was really good too, and Lancer's was just plain awesome!

That fic is terrible and anybody who would rec it is terrible.

There was one featuring future Rin, right?

I have to agree with you there, Theo. I also like Assassin's (false), but then again I like that guy. Gil/Shirou broness is always a plus with me.

Theocrass
March 19th, 2011, 02:31 AM
Oh yeah, that was future Rin! I literally only just realized that because you pointed it out.

Who don't like da Gil/Shirou broness?

Besides Keyne (who's Tsundere for Gilgy).

There is one FSN/Naruto worth reading, although it is kinda dead. It is called Fate/eternia (http://forums.darklordpotter.net/showthread.php?t=16815).

How about we use this thread from now on for alerting people of off-site updated fics and discussing them, like FFD and Remember?

Thread necromancy gives me raging erections so I just revived this.

While the indexing keeps the other thread clutter-free I dunno if it's a good idea to spam it with "FFD updated" every time :V

Or it could just be ignored as it should be, because it's pretty pointless.
