Well, I got a follower the day after I posted my new story, but got a negative review from someone else almost immediately after that. The person claimed to like the story for the subject matter, but I was nothing to say about it and was just criticizing my style. They were polite about it, so I responded politely back. But the fact that people who like a story don’t review or don’t say much positive things is very annoying... especially since on other sites, such as here or archive of our own, there is some positive feedback... if I could, I would just disable reviews entirely and just let people contact me via p.m. if they wanted more info. All the negative comments are disheartening, especially since there are people that like my work based on the followers and favorites that I have and the people in other places that do leave positive feedback... it’s like if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all...
"We don't, not yet, we don't have anything to win them over remember? These don't seem as kind as the ones of my world, back then we had a deal, that I would help them out if they took you in. Eventually hunters sent us running" she says.
"It was long ago, other Lance and me had just begun this whole thing. Those wolves then sent us away because when we asked her help and they came along, somehow it was our fault that some of them died, and didn't want to see us again, even though they were well aware of the risks. Wolves can be very stupid"
Flannery looks at Lance's hair.
"Oh. Must be an alpha wolf thing. Heh. Cute."
Lance frowns. "I'm not an alpha wolf."
"Right. You're a lone wolf." She grins.
"So... How was we supposed to even confront the wolves?"
