||| Compiling ALL KBSM Parodies |||

thehetaliahumanoc:

I’ve noticed lately that there has been an increase in the number of Kidnapped by Sexy Men parodies out there in the Hetalia fanfiction world. Since I am nearing the close of this wonderful stories, I figured that now would be a good time to gather as all of the parodies out there into one place and do a small review of each. I wouldn’t look at them chapter by chapter like I do with all of the other stuff I review, but I will do a smaller version of my big story reviews for each.

So please, send into my submit or ask box any parody that you know of. I don’t care if it’s discontinued or on-going. Heck, I don’t care if I’ve looked at it before. Send them in and I’ll create a masterpost. 

Thanks!

I only have three parody stories so far and I know that there are more out there, so please send in more. Please reblog this and let people know about what I’m doing. I’m trying to create a big list.

Here’s a list of the parodies I’m aware of:

"Kidnapped by Handsome Strangers" by Hefters 

Kidnapped by Straight Men" by BFTLandMWandSEK

"Why’d She Have To Believe Them?" by TheWritingGup

Please reblog this and send in the parodies you know of! Thank you!

Kidnapped by Sexy Men- Chapter 32 (Review)

I’m feeling very emotional today. I just finished reading W;T by Margaret Edson and it’s never been a good idea for me to read cancer stories, especially now. Anyways, I’m emotional so don’t be surprised by my reactions.

APH ROMANO IS NICE TO GIRLS AND PEOPLE HE CARES ABOUT STOP SAYING HES A HEARTLESS ASSHOLE FOR FUCKS SAKE


boss-the-many-fandoms-girl asked:
I tried to do it, but I just couldn't bear the sheer stupidity of that monstrosity of a reader insert! How could we have allowed for it to escape from the deepest depths of hell and into the mind of a mortal girl whom your kind considers a Weaboo? And why are you forcing yourself to suffer through the nonsense that is labeled as "K.B.S.M."? Kidnapping Blank Souls Mach 1, or as you call it, Kidnapped by Sexy Men. How has a mortal like yourself survived without your soul being devoured by it?

I have no soul

Everyone, please raise your flags in salute to Canada. I have the feeling he will continue to get more shit this chapter.

Lord help you, Matthew Williams.

Human to Nation?!

I don’t get this at all

This is a profile to the ever fated character with that one name that is so ridiculous that I can’t be bothered to pronounce it. I’m not going to look at it because I might go back and review the original story again.


Pacing

mattwritesthings:

Don’t overwhelm your readers with information - stagger it out

It is very tempting to explain everything all at once, but often backfires. Only tell your reader as much as necessary for them to understand what is happening.  

Readers need surprisingly little to get what’s going on. 

Don’t introduce too many characters all at once

That really depends on the kind of story you are telling and the setting, though if you introduce too many characters your readers might have trouble keeping track of everything.

A few per scene/chapter will usually be enough. 

Don’t solve problems immediately

Western stories are all about solving problems. They drive the story and are usually what’s most interesting about the whole thing - the journey your characters undertake while doing so. 

If you introduce a problem and solve it a few pages later, it sucks all the tension out of your story. Also, you might rob yourself of story-telling opportunities. 

There should be ups and downs

Again, that’s highly generalized.

That said, after a huge action scene there should be a bit of a breathing room both for your characters and the reader to process what just happened. There’s such a thing as too much happening in too little time.

My senior year is starting tomorrow, so that means that this blog will go back to it’s weekend update schedule. Not that anyone will notice.
