Added an actual plot as opposed to just some ideas wowee
@LegendBegins Literally everyone else who has spoken other than me (and people who haven't replied to me) have basically done nothing but call me an asshole.
I think we left civility off the train. ^-^'

When you need ten people to circle jerk against one person.
You're not winning.
I don't think my reviewing style is particularly brutal or ruthless. But you can dislike it. Calling me an asshole for doing it, isn't anything but being one yourself.
Ah yes, the best example of obvious cases of two people who took something personally and spewed a bunch of ad-homs at me. Also, some of those very people told me how great my reviews were, and how my posts belonged on R/MurderedByWords.
not to hold a grudge but you blew up on me when i corrected some minor grammatical mistakes you made and then blew up on me again and called me a "lying bitch" and "fucking insufferable" when i brought it up at a point far enough forward in time for you to have moved on

Subjective opinion and objective quality are two different things.
You are conflating the two by strawmanning my position.
You know, except when people either personally ask for that advice specifically. Enter a creative writing contest, or anything that invokes competition and begs to be critiqued for such a thing specifically. Or, perhaps how literally every single writing/literary agent works, when it comes to endless revisions required to getting one's writing published. Then, it benefits the writer significantly. But sure, all other times, no reason to rewrite things whatsoever. ^-^'
(Or when you're writing a fan fiction, because hey guess what, that's rewriting/changing someone's established 'voice/cannon' and making it your own. And that's okay too.)
This sentiment could easily boil down to "the author can never be wrong/all writing quality is subjective."
But all suggestions can either be taken with sheer hostility and ignored. Or they can be evaluated and worked upon. (And I can tell you the latter makes you more successful in every avenue and medium.)
And, tell me this...
How can you critique anyone's writing choices whatsoever, when you aren't allow to seek or offer a change?
