1. What attracts you to a fanfic?
a.) the writer of the ff
b.) the couple in the ff
c.) the title of the ff
I think the writer most definetly does attract me to a fic. If there's a certain writer who's previous fics I've read and enjoyed, then I always end up reading her fics as I know what sort of style to expect. And of course the couple of the fic, I would check out any ff if the main were one from the serials I watch and enjoy.
2. What makes you want to keep following the ff?
a.) writing style of the writer
c.) popularity of the ff as judged by number of responses
d.) language used (english/hindi/mixed)
I think the writing style and storyline would probable keep me coming back to read updates, withought being bored.
3. What is the most important reason you read ffs?
a.) Hot/tantalizing scenes
b.) Cute/romantic scenes
c.) Daydream about their fav couples
e.) Just enjoy reading
I think it might be because I enjoy reading and that it helps me to improve my own writing skills for my own ff, and, of course, school coursework! But yeh, I do prefer romance as one of the genres when I do read.
4. Do you like ffs with a subtle message?
c.) Don't care
I don't know about this one! If the fic ends with a massage, I of course like it, but if it doesn't, then I don't think I would feel disappointed or not like it.
5. Does anyone in your family or friend circle know you read ffs?
a.) Yes, of course, I am not ashamed of what I do!
b.) NO WAY! - my parents will kill me or my friends will make fun of me
Well, my friends know that I read fics, and i'm not really ashamed to say I am, as there are many talented writers here on I-F who sure do deserve credit for their hard work. And in a way, it connects me more to the serials when i read a certain fic. But yeh, they laugh sometimes, of course as a joke. Though, yeh, my parents don't know I read fics...
6. What length do you prefer?
a.) Long running ffs like serials
b.) short stories like a movie
I personally don't mind the length of the fic, as long as it's interesting to read, and not much of a drag, and keeps me coming back to read the next update.
7. What are your favorite type of scenes?
c.) sad/judai scenes
d.) happy/milan scenes
e.) cute romance
f.) hot passionate scenes
g.) melodramatic scenes
I think I prefer all sorts of scenes, depending on the storyline, though I dislike judaai scenes..can't bear to see couples seperated like they do (again and again) in serials!!!
8. Do you like stories with
a.) realistic storylines
b.) vivid imagination
I don't mind, as long as the main leads, if adults, don't act like kids. By this I mean, pull each others hair when having a fight or something- lol- because I've read this in a couple of fics a while back.
