    I don't know if this is in the right spot. If it isn't I apologize. Please move it to the correct spot.

    Anyway. What is your general opinion of Fanfiction.Net especially when it comes to their M or MA rated stories.

    I've never been there. I don't read a lot of fanfiction.

    I liked Fanfiction.net around ten years ago. That was back when I was avidly into fan fics, but these days I can't really be bothered wading through the piles of trash to find that one gleaming diamond in the ruff. It's easy to spot bad fan art quickly, but you have to spend time reading fan fics before finding out they're bad. It's no wonder FF.net earned the nickname 'the pit of voles'.

    It has some disgusting stuff in it.....but it also has some good stuff in it. It's like a big pile of shit that has sprinkles and candy bars on it. It's just odd.:)

    Never been there, but I know some writers who contribute something other than slash. Just don't have that much extra time to read FF.

    Hilarious to have a bunch of people browse for dramatic readings over skype. Wait, I'm thinking of adultfanfiction. I guess I'm indifferent to the regular stuff. Don't care enough to have an opinion either way.

    I find many fics on that site to be poorly written, but I simply adore finding those jewels among the crap.

    Some are good but the majority of it I wouldn't even bother to look at. The really good ones are seldomly completed.

    I don't really bother with Fanfics. My immortal and some random satanist twilight fic are pretty much the ones that have interested me.

    My girlfriend's very active on there and has contributed a lot of stories, some of which have pretty high ratings.
    Even so, I find the site to be nothing like it used to be. Once, it was pretty good and had a lot of fun to offer. Now, it's pretty much a cesspool that needs waded through in order to find anything not vomit-inducing.
    With all the gawd-awful slash, shipping and downright ridiculous fan-wank, I just won't go there. The gf understands and actually agrees, and has even started becoming disillusioned herself. To top that off, if you even remotely dislike something and post a comment that isn't a gratuitous back-slap the writer usually has a hissy fit and can get you banned. Aww, poor babies.

    FanFiction.net- once good, now trash.

    Well I thank it for keeping me interested in reading in high school but it is a hive of scum and villainy, and you must wade through a crucible of shit and spunk to find anything worth a squirt of piss.

    So I still like it, but not as much as I once did.

    Pretty much what a lot of people have said. It was good back in the day but now this younger generation can't write for shit. I mean their inspiration for writing is shit like Twilight, Vampire Diaries, and 50 Shades of grey.

    I still check it. I have my fave writers on there and I just stick to what I like or know will be good when I'm bored or need a little guilty pleasure.

    I like Fanfiction.net. I don't really go there much anymore though. I generally read old toon and comic based stories.
