Yup. even if i openly said i dislike BTF that doesn't mean i hated it and even then i can appreciate some good stuff from Nanya's work some times, it's just that our tastes are pretty different at some points.
For example, probably you guys think i'm a gutless goody good because i'm not on the boat of those who like fanservice on your fanfiction, i do crnk smile at cunning spicy jokes from time to time but i'm not fond of seeing characters derailed for the sake of fanservice(i can understand Hayate, Shari or more or less Shamal but when the likes of Fate and Arisa are involved into that kind of stuff i get unsettling feelings instead of laughs).
Other think that Nanya is very good with but i don't follow him is his level of "DARK" on his stories, well he openly admitted he likes to torture characters so there's few for me to add, it's just my personal taste(and of course when Signum's turn at the bat comes i feel insecure xDU).
We also can't agree on power levels, i admitedly only watched Slayers to the end of NEXT but i think i have a clear grasp of what slayers-vers magic can do and it's very unbalanced(regular spells are mostly weaker than in Nanohaverse but bigger final spells are a lot more powerfull xD), but again that comes more as personal tastes clashing against each other xDU. Still he do come up with interesting ideas about the combination of their magics but most of the time i feel an aura of superiority coming from slayersverse magic(but probably that's just me).
What i grew to like about him are the emotional interaction between characters, whe they aren't in a pit of darkness of stealing each other's panties i can appreciete very good narrative and even if some of them are OOC at times they feel believable. I can feel their grieve, hapiness, sadness or excitement. I was quite shocked at what he prepared for Signum, i don't like keeping my toughts to myself so i questioned some stuff trying to not being picky(i can think about two or three ways in what Signum can deal with the overpowered BTF Cinque and about 7 or 8 she can do it with Canon Cinque, but i guess Nanya won't let a rematch to happen xDU). But after the pain weared down a little i get amused at the possibilities(Signum crippled and growing in frustration while engulfed by darkness xD) and i'm waiting at how Nanya will handle this(i feel guilty at the irony because i think it's my fault Naya got so harsh on Signum in first place xDU), i know it won't be pretty but i know Nanya also disliked how the Force-manga is handled so i think he will develop her differently from Tsuzuki.
...as long as he don't take the easy way of giving her bionic parts i'll be fine xD. Not only because of preference(i don't like seeing Signum being too relaint of other stuff aside of her own awesomeness, Agito and Laevatein ...and only recently started to accept reliance on Agito xD) but also because in canon, bionic implants are impossible for Mid-Childan science, it's one of the very reasons of why there are so few Cyborgs and of why Scaglietty is considered a genius, an individual must be genetically manipuled from birth to have acces to bionic parts, otherwise the body will reject it. But well, it's Nanya's fic, not mine, i guess if he decides to go that path with Signum he will think of some applied phlebotinum to allow her body to use such stuff.
I like seeing heroes having conflict from time to time but also like to seeing them being awesome at what they do better. Probably is my main clashing with Nanya's style.
So, in resume, no, i don't "hate" BTF i just have differences with some aspects of the fic. Even if i generally don't like it it's still amusing in it's own way so i'll follow it each time it touches a topic i that catches my attention.
But yea, I've noticed your posts have gotten a lot better regarding "that". I admit there was once a point I got fed up and negrepped you, though I think I've made up for that in the meantime.
I think the greatest trouble of those boards is distrust and paranoia. People always think other people are insinuating stuff they really aren't. Like every post is a hidden insult when it's really not. Nah, not every post has hidden insults, except for mine...
Once people realize people aren't here to ruin everything it'll be better. Just because you have criticism doesn't mean you hate it, right?
