Yes, you've got all the details are there, certainly. It's just the names that aren't present. There's no reason to confuse the reader at all!"That is why we already declared your sister to be the queen of Landen." and "You will always have a home here in Landen Adan." That's one of those things I heard screamed in my writing classes called continuity errors; like having a character use the phone when a page earlier I wrote that that the utilities were shut off. :misspeak:

It was very well done. You did it better than nearly everyone in my upper-level fiction writing courses!

Of course. One must choose their priorities!

I look forward to the rest of these. I'll read them in the next week or so.

Hey now, it seems that people like your story so far! (judging from the ratings and all, 4 ain't that bad) If I deleted every story I wasn't happy with, they'd all be gone. :lol:

If you really want to delete it, there's an option for that if you go to edit it -- check the "Delete" box and it seems like that would do it.

On a side note, chapters seem to just be a whole new post.

I can certainly delete the story if you're not happy with it. Just let me know for sure if you do want it removed. Once it's gone, it would be hard to restore if you change your mind.

Actually it won't. I have it set up where only I can delete the stories. That delete box shouldn't appear; I guess that is a bug in the software.

Yeah; that's the best way to handle them, at least for now. For stories that have several chapters, I would create a subcategory and put all the related chapters/posts in there.

News to me. o_O Kinda liked the idea that the author could delete their own work.

I think the best option would just be to just make a thread in that case, like what Kaloes did with that PSIV story. :)

Maybe I'm looking too deep into this, but you don't seem too happy about it. (don't let ratings affect your judgement either...personally, I think my Kara story's pretty good, and yet it holds the lowest rating out of my stories! :lol:) If you're not satisfied with the story, just fix it! :yes:

Nothing's set in stone, y'know?

That works, but then you get comments interspersed with the story, and some people may only want to read the story and not the comments. Kaloes' thread certainly works well. I'm just thinking some people may want to read the whole story before seeing any one's comments.

I think that ideally, the best way may be to have two threads, one for the story and one for any comments about it. I'm open to other suggestions, though. Right now I'm working on a big upgrade to the forum software. It requires re-creating a lot of sections of the site (most notably the design, downloads, and quizzes), so it is taking a while.

It's up to you; if you want the story removed because you're not happy with it, then I don't have a problem with taking it down.

Yes, definitely, kaloes. If you're not happy with the work, that's all that matters. Always stick with your opinion; it's your creation, and no one else's. Don't go by polls, look where that got Richard Nixon! :lol:

That said, I've enjoyed your PSIV story!

I've been in the PSII rom for the last few days, so I haven't got to the newer fan fics. I'll post here when I have.
