Stories don't end. We just stop telling them.


Who? What? Why?

Hi there and thank you for stopping by. As a little heads-up: English is a foreign language for me. I try my best, but one tends to learn from mistakes. If you find any, please let me know.

My reading habits are... strange, I think. I am online on a daily basis, so reaching me with comments or messages will never be a problem. But I read in bursts. For days or weeks on end, I come down on my 'read later'-shelf with furious vengeance. And at some point, I just... stop. For months. I would like to say 'it works like this because I 'got my fill', so to speak' - but that would be dishonest. My reading habit is directly linked to my mental health. I return here to seek safety and comfort and flee from reality whenever things get really bad (again).
Obviously, this has repercussions on what I read. (A more detailed list will follow.) I appreciate recommendations. But please try to keep in mind that I won't read certain genres, or stories bearing certain tags.
I also have a hard time (OCDs, I guess) not to finish reading a story once I start. The good thing about that is, that I tend to leave my thoughts about it in some way. I comment if I have something to say or upvote if I enjoyed the story. I rarely downvote and do so only in extreme cases - and never because I 'didn't like the story'. And when I do, I always explain why.

Now, for those stories I tend to avoid:
Sad, dark, tragedy, gore - if I want to get depressed, I take a look at my life. Thus I prefer my shiny happy end.
Alternate universe, furry, human, Crossover - I like to read about my little ponies, emphasis on ponies.

There are exceptions, of course. But those are very rare indeed. As for what I actually like to read - mostly romance. I love me some adventures, some slice of life or comedy, but basically... everything gets better when sprinkled with romance. That said, there are of course certain ships I prefer:
I will die fighting on deck or sink with the AppleDash and Tuna (Twilight x Luna, for those not in the know). These are almost guaranteed to catch my interest.
I will valiantly defend the FlutterPie as well as her sister vessel, the RariPie. And in recent years, due to some criminally talented authors, I even developed a liking for TwiLestia.
There are ships I see a lot that I don't really care all that much about, including the famous RariJack and TwiDash. Not my cup of tea - but may your journeys be safe and your waters be calm.

They are well deserved.

As for your comment on your story - and I'm going to answer that here so as to not spam there: I'm looking forward to reading more from you. And Spike is a good buddy, yes. He has his flaws, obviously. Everyone does. And you managed to handle those very well, too. :twilightsmile:

Thank you for the watch, favourite and kind comments :))

You're welcome. It was a very sweet tale, so... thank you. For writing it. :twilightsmile:
