I updated my Voltron fanfic. Let me know what you think! I'm also working on the next chapter of A Charmed Life and it's going to have a delicious twist in it. One that will earn a tag or two.

This site also has the benefit of being smaller, so the recent story section moves at a much slower pace, giving every story a good chance to be seen on the main page.

And that's real lame. Here, when you add a new chapter, it shows up in the Most Recent section. I find it crazy that site dedicated to more niche nsfw content does it better than a huge fanfic sit

When you update a story on fanfiction.net (one of the big sites) your story might not appear in the general updated section, if not enough time passed between updates.

After dabbling in fanfiction websites recently, I've come to appreciate how much better this site does story updates and recent story sections.

Hey everyone! I'm looking for a story and can't seem to find it. It was about a man who needs to take medication or else he shrinks. He ends up shrinking and his girlfriend finds out. Thanks!

Yes, good plan. I'll end it with a clear hint that the next story will continue with that bad ending to turn it all around. Thanks mates ^.^

@Shaman I agree with what Saftkeur said. I think it's okay if it's done right. If you have it end in a " holy shit, what's gonna happen after that? " kinda way

My 2-cents? Never kill-off your main character. And, always keep them guessing.

Best I can offer - I think - would simply be, make sure that the darker ending has a purpose, that it fits and doesn't seem too abrupt/tactless/forced. I think it'll work if so.

Saftkeur
I'm probably not the right person to ask for that sort of a question, I'm very much biased towards lighter tones. ^^; I do think darker can work, if it's done right (helpful I know).

... but rather an open ending for the next story. I'm pretty unsure about it, and feel like I may anger some people with it >.>

Do you guys (Saftkeur, scholar and others) think it's a solid plan to end on a dark chapter? It isn't the end of the story...

And then there's the "Old Skins" skin. (use the back button to change it back to a better one, or you might get stuck with it and need to clear cookies or something)

All three skins have their pros and cons it seems...

@Scholar, yeah the Desktop skin has the shoutbox, but everything else is squished too far to read it. The Mobile skin is readable but there's no shoutbox then.

Me too. One of my stories is on hold right now. I'm just not happy with what I write for the next chapter. I am going to finish it one day though.

Shaman
Smart move. I only upload once I actually finish it, or when I'm far ahead. The thing I hate the most is when stories are left unfinished >.>

I have a few chapters written and edited, but I want to get a lot of the story finished before I publish it. My problem in the past was taking too long to update.

The Shrunken Scholar
Yes, definitely. For awhile I lost my drive to write and then things got crazy. I don't have much time to write at the moment, but I am working on a story.
