That is true. I discovered that the best way to attract attention to your fics is to be very active in the forums, especially around the fanfic sections. People tend not to pay serious attention to a newbie fic unless it's either salvagable, or so utterly hideous it deserves fun to be poked at. They also tend to forget people quickly; so an older member ought to maintain a high level of activity throughout their time on Serebii.
The other problem is that people often read the fic, they just can't be bothered posting... >.<
It has felt it. But I have noticed you DO seem to appear instantly when there is a new Fire Eye update (speaking of, I never got the PM's out due to being whisked away by family ">>). So perhaps I have merely been ignorant of your appearances for whatever reason.
Life is a busy thing, indeed. It has been plucking me from my internet abode with increasing frequency.
I have an interesting one I am trieing to post here... I put up the prolouge... but it isn't very good... the bad guy is nuts... you don't get to see how crazy till later... but he is obsessed with the protagonist and once kidnaped her friend and cut her up without killing her and took a bunch of pictures of it... he is just like that....
I have had relatives over, but little else to report. Much, much activity on Serebii (when it actually WORKS). A new one-shot, finally started writing to Fire Eye again (it will be finished ONE day...), and... yep. More or less it.
