Rebelling against a cutie mark? I think I might have seen a few examples, but I can only name one example of that trope in MLP fanfiction.

I hope that you won't stoop as low as unicorn92243 did. Got banned for alt abuse on petty dislike bombing. Moderators can see who disliked a story, and when. I think you'd be more thick skinned to bad reception, considering that you've gotten more of it. So you should be less likely to take drastic measures.

I...am actually considering coming back. My acquaintance is allowing me to use her ponysona for a story I'm currently working on in private about two ponies, one who doesn't agree with what her Cutie Mark represents, and the other who doesn't understand what her's means, who go on a cross-country journey together to find out if they should follow the path their flanks have mapped out for them.

You've come back for a little while? I expected no different. But like 1087926 said, coming back is more or less going back on your most recent words in a blog post.

Either way, I wish the best for you if you come back. Hopefully, you won't garner more infamy.

Yeah, now that I'm not reprimanding you, I'm wishing the best for you. I'm strange.

I suspect that I'm hanging on to the possibly false hope that you'll actually come back. I won't be too sorry if you don't, but it would be a bonus to see how you handle it. I don't think anybody would be exactly 'happy'.

You do know that constantly coming back defeats the whole purpose of leaving right:trollestia:

Hey, I'd like to speak up, because I believe the insistence of my companions may be giving the wrong impression. I'm honestly sorry that you feel as if you're being directly attacked by someone. I don't think anyone in Rage Reviews is trying to do that, but unfortunately they're pretty dedicated to giving criticism.

Your blog rant didn't help matters either and now they're not going to stop, because they feel that they really have to drive their point home. That attempt at reaching you is probably falling on deaf ears at this point, however. The determination to be right in either circumstance never ends well.

So I'm not telling you that anyone was wrong or right. If you're truly thirteen, then I feel especially sympathetic for you. There's no reason at all for you to be an amazing writer at this point in your life. Heck, if you were just eighteen, I'd cut you some slack, though I've seen dedicated teenagers pull out some amazing work before (and some people my age or older who are just terrible at it.) It's really not a case of age, so much as it is a matter of experience and practice. So the younger you are, the less time you've been able to spend on this sort of thing. I understand that, and I think that makes a huge difference.

It also means that right now you're probably very upset and feeling bullied, because this is what it would look like from your end. I'm sorry that we've hurt you, and I really mean that. No one should feel like they're being hassled, whether they're just stubborn, or they're young, or they just really don't care because they only want to do this for fun.

And it is fun. I love writing. I wouldn't do it if I didn't have fun. I'm very sorry if everyone may have unintentionally taken that away from you. It's not as if you kicked their dog or something. You wrote some fanfiction that wasn't stellar, everyone does, and then didn't really know how to implement the advice given to you or you didn't care about it. And you shouldn't have to. But as long as your stories seem sub-par, I'm afraid putting them into the public eye will get a reaction from people with a more critical response to such things, whether it's polite or not.

Just accept these things for what they are. Try to take the good with the bad. I really would hate for you to be frustrated and give up purely because of this. I gave up art because I lost interest in improving myself, but if you truly enjoy writing and don't want to stop, then don't stop writing.

You can't get better without practice and anything that you write will be that. Practice.

I know it probably doesn't sound supportive enough right now. I'm being rather blunt. I don't hate you. No one here does and I really don't want that to be what you take away from this fandom.

Sometimes people lose sight of the feelings of others. Unfortunately the Rage Reviews are really meant to be a form of venting for the reviewer. I don't really think they're the right thing to share with the writer, except in the case that said writer can take it on the chin and accept it for what it is. I recognize Moviemaster8510 was just really insistent about reaching you, but I think perhaps that was the wrong way to go about it. These things are meant to be callous and while I don't think they should be anything that you would never say to the writer's face, I do think speaking directly to anyone you don't simply despise requires more tact.

So I am apologizing for what has happened and I really hope that you can bounce back from this. As much as I might joke about it, I would never want to be the reason that someone else gave up out of frustration. :fluttershysad:

But you're young. You have your whole life ahead of you. If you really don't want to keep going, there's no reason to worry about it. Besides, writing is something you can always pick up again later on. There's always a chance to improve in the future. I could always try my hand at drawing again. I just choose not to. :pinkiesmile:
