    Uggghh... has anyone ever had an issue with something requesting stories or asking for something in your story to go a certain way? I have just had to deal with someone on FF.net basically demanding me to write a story they have requested and they seem incapable of getting my answer through their apparently very thick skull!

    There's an ignore or block button, isn't there?

    I am ignoring the person and will block them should they not get the message. I was largely wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience, and I would be especially interested if it had happened to anyone on this site.

    No, I've never had anything like that happen to me before at all, on either site. :/

    But that sucks, you're doing good by just ignoring/blocking him.

    Do it, but make him pay you. Writers should start taking commissions like visual artists do.

    cha-ching

    Otherwise your story will disagree with their headcanon. And if that happens, the world will end in a massive fireball of nerd-rage. You clearly don't understand the gravity of this situation.

    I would gladly take the weirdo's cash if I actually had the time to do their stories and if they weren't trying to insist on the dullest, most childish plot line in the history of the world :P

    Actually...this is a really good idea. If you're getting cash out of it, who cares if he wants something dull and childish? At least it'll be simple to do, you could probably shit it out in an hour or so (depending on how long they want it). After all, isn't that how publishing works in the real world? Publishing houses tell you what to write, and if you don't write it, you don't get published so you don't get money.

    If I had the time to write (I have my own ongoing series that haven't been updated in five months) I potentially would ask for cash, but I imagine that the person would drop their request in a second :P It would be quite uncommon on FF.net, unlike devianArt where comissions appear to be a big part of the site.

    And AetherX, it is a request for another fandom that I don't particularly like writing for that much anyway as you are rather restricted by it. If it was a Pokemon request then I may do it.

    Yeah, I've never had that happen to me, either. They might just be a troll. I say just don't respond to anything they say, if you've already told them no and they won't drop it.

    And speaking of paying attention to someone's story, I'm still waiting on a review in the review game. D:

    You need to be patient with this game. Some people had to wait a long while before they got theirs. Due to the lack of activity in the Workshop over the past few days I would say that most people are quite busy.

    I got a 3DS for Christmas and I'm extremely happy with it. Anyone hesitating to buy a 3DS shouldn't. It's great, I love mine! (It's pink ^-^)
