I am, admittedly, bad at accepting criticism a lot of times without feeling depressed. Which is completely immature and unbecoming! But I always try to be respectful when responding to it, and I REALLY DO store away all the advice I ever get in my head and think about it at depth as I continue writing. But I was just worried I was too [something] in that reply. I really do think your advice/thoughts were helpful!
I hope I didn't seem, at points, too defensive in my reply to your summary of my last chapter. It was 4am and I had a headache when I replied, and I thought, upon re-reading it, that it might have read more defensively than I intended.
Oh and I didnt say boy with Steve because he was over 21. In which, one day you should read the Bump story in my signature. Also, the first line about the rotton egg, the grunt who said that was twelve.
I agree on that one. 32 is indeed an adult. However, 17 isn't a grown woman to me and I don't want to feel forced to think it is. I have taken advice and did the "commander" and using her name to. I've been using that more as you saw. I only used girl about 4 times and you still got upset. That's why I was puzzled. :[
I still want to use the word when I believe that under 18 isn't grown. You know, I want to use it every once in a full moon, if that's okay with you.
I didn't say it was a bad thing. I said bleeding hearts because I've been in many political debates and I've seen to where most of the responses to the issues are fulled by pure emotion. There's nothing wrong with wanting equal rights. What I am for is for equal opportunity but not equal outcome. But if someone begs to differ on something like gay marriage, we get the BIGOTTTTTTTT YEW NEED TO DIEEE alot. Or I get the classic "Im so hateful" speech. Which is why I stay from issues that are emotion fueled.
Precisely. I'm not really sure what it'd fall under, since I'd usually call something like your fic "character-centric" or "character exploration." (That's the kind of fic I tend to write most as well.)
