So, I've barely been writing recently. I've removed the section of my profile on fanfiction where I was offering to write requests, mainly because I've been working on original fiction now. I will post something on the odd occasion over there, but mainly I've been inactive.

So it was a surprise to me to get a review for an older story over there, yet I wasn't happy when I read it.

"Ya I have a request, (I know I'm a author too but people need to start writing these) a Oh! Edo rocket fic. Ginjiro x Akai please."

First of all, it should be "an" not "a" Oh! Edo fic, same with "an" author, not "a". Grammatical errors (even though I do make them as well) annoy me. Secondly, if you're going to review someone's story, review their damn story. Don't use it as a means to say, "Hey, write in this world. I know you only really write for a single fandom, but hey- you won't mind reading/watching something entirely new just to write a request for me, right?" Especially when you don't follow me, fave me, or review anything else that I've ever written.

It's kinda annoying. I write for myself, for my friends, and some of my stories, yes, were written because I know my fans (that is so odd to say, tbh; me, fans?) would enjoy them. But I write first of all for me, because it is something I enjoy doing, not because I feel obligated to write.

I know I'm not the first person to gripe about this, but getting a review is something I look forward to- sometimes they're what I need to work on an unfinished fic, to spur me into writing something new, or just an upper for my day. Something so selfish as to use it just to beg for a fic from a fandom I've never heard of? That peeves me.
