Well. Allrighty then  
I just got this review on fanfiction.net for the first chapter of Come Home Safe:

You people will not give Steve any kind of credit will you? Steve is a grown ass man looking for answers for why his parents were murdered how can Danny not understand that? So what now he's running away to make Steve look like the bad guy? That's bullshit and let me guess you gonna make Steve grovel and beg for Danny to come back. Also another thing when exactly did Steve struggle being the leader of Five-0? And how has Danny helped? You mean by him complaining the whole time? It's amazing how much you Danny fans go out of the way to bash Steve for any little thing that he does it's starting to get a little pathetic.

I'm not entirely sure what story the reviewer was reading but I find it a little hard to believe it was mine. I love Danny but I love Steve just a little more!

Trying not to let it hurt my feelings. Apparently I'm not succeeding. 

And by the way, if you want to insult me, please be sure and use "you people." It flies all over me like little else can.

Sounds like someone is projecting there. Wow, ranting, mean and useless review. Don't know what he/she is reading, but obviously some other story raised their ire and they are taking it out on you or are just looking for trouble. Unbelievable. I'm sorry you have to read that. Please don't take it to heart. You are a wonderful writer. I love your work and always look forward to more. {{Hugs}}

Thank you so much! I think you're right - it is projecting. Not about me at all.

I love Steve. I would never do anything to hurt him in my stories. Well, maybe a little bit. But I don't know what this person's problem is!

Thank you for the lovely response!! It helps more than you'll know!

reading stuff like that makes me want to send a PM or start a comment war...or something! Just UGH! Just because we don't see something play out on screen, doesn't mean it couldn't possibly happen "behind the scenes". Plus, in the letter Steve left Danny, he said And until I get some answers, I can't do this job right. To me that sounds like he knows he's not doing his best, not doing what's right for the team or for the cases they work on.

I agree with what d_odyssey said!

Thank you! I try not to respond in kind to these types of reviews. I replied "Everyone has a right to their opinion." I don't know how else to respond!

I appreciate your kindness in your response.

*hugs* Don't worry about that douche bag. I think you're awesome, and clearly my opinion is the only one that counts ;D My advice is to use the Block feature—one of my favorite FFN features.
Are 6 dogs too many?: george herotkeylasunset on May 16th, 2012 02:08 am (UTC)
You're right, you are the only who matters! Always have been. ;-)

I think I will Block him/her. He/she has problems that have nothing to do with me.

Thank you!!! :-)

I really hate it when the trolls come out.

I know how hard it is when you get a review like this. You can't help its effect on you even if you're trying to not let it get to you. I've had it happen to me and I'm sorry you've had it happen to you. That person is just being ugly and mean.

You're an exceptional writer! Please don't let others make you think otherwise.

Thank you!! I know I shouldn't let it get to me. I will never understand how we can get 100 reviews that love our story and 1 that doesn't and all we can think about is that one negative response. What's with that??? (Or is that just me? Hmm...)

I really appreciate your very kind words!!! They really do help!

What is it with fanfiction.net lately? It's like let the crazy come out and play week or something!

((more hugs))
Are 6 dogs too many?: chin ho armoredtkeylasunset on May 16th, 2012 03:31 pm (UTC)
Bwhahahaha... YES it is let the crazies come out and play week! Hallmark must make cards for it!!

Or maybe I've become a crazy magnet. Either way, they just need to go play in someone's sandbox, please.

(((thank you for the hugs!!!)))

Ignore the troll. They're obviously projecting their anger on something else onto you. There is nothing wrong with your fic. I honestly don't see where they got most of what they were ranting about. The reviewer obviously has issues.

My advice is to delete the review and block the user. That's what I've been having to do lately on fanfiction.net. Suddenly that website is overrun with Trolls and haters.
Are 6 dogs too many?: harlequin covertkeylasunset on May 16th, 2012 03:33 pm (UTC)
I have blocked the user but can't delete the review since it's signed. It's fine. They are projecting and the anger isn't about me or my story. I feel bad for them but they need to find a healthier outlet for their problems.

Fanfiction.net is not my friend right now. I may finish posting this story and not post there any longer. It seems to be where the crazy go to play.

Thank you for the kind words!

::Huggles:: Someone had a bad day or a bad lifetime and wants to take it out on you. That's one of the sad things about the internet. Please, just ignore him and focus on us intelligent humans who appreciate you!

BTW, you people, and you know who you people are, are always going on about its and it's and i'ts. You people just don't understand, do You People? ROFL!!! Sorry, just amusing myself. And trying to get you people to smile. :)
Are 6 dogs too many?: my danno heartstkeylasunset on May 16th, 2012 03:36 pm (UTC)
You People do understand!!!!! Yes, the crazies have found me. You're right, I will just ignore this crazy and move on.

And You People do need to get a grip on its vs it's. One of my huge pet peeves!!!! I see You People understand that too!

Thank you for the support and the smiles!!!! ;-)

Yes you are allowed to be indignant on my behalf!! I very much appreciate it!!! Love love love the gif!!! "I'm cool...." I really like that movie but it doesn't get much love from Disney fans.

I would be more upset about the stupidity of the "review" but I know that the more energy I invest in being angry, the more power I cede to the idiot that left it. That was a hard life lesson to learn. So I am going to (pretend to) be a grown up and move on. Soon. I'm sure.

Thank you for the indignation, the kind words, and the fabulous gif!!!

Sorry you were on the receiving end of that, you don't deserve it.
Some people just like to be malicious and spiteful.

Personally, I can't wait for the next part of this fic, it's brilliant.

thank you so much!!!

Yes, some people live for making other people miserable. What a sad life this person has!

Thank you again!!!

That site you're using doesn't seem to have a whole lot of nice people there. *hugs* I haven't read your story because if I'm thinking straight (and I';m usually not, so excuse me!) I don't want to be spoiled so it'll have to wait till after I've seen the last two eps... but seriously:

1/ it's fiction, person. Don't be rude even if you don't like it
2/ everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but learn that it's better to comment on the story, not the 'you people' you think wrote it.
3/ the writer would not be writing if they didn't love the show and want things to work out.
4/ go get stuffed!

And for you, my dear, I say: keep writing! You do a wonderful job! Do not be put off by those jerks at that site. *more hugs*

Ignore the trolls Mate- they are not worth your time or energy to get upset by them. They are petty little individuals who love nothing more than to upset others. FF.Net seems to becoming a magnet for idiots like this. I have just started to read your stories and they are awesome! *Hugs*

I have found that there are people on FF net who are extreme Steve fans, where Steve never does anything wrong and if there is even a hint that you don't agree with Steve's God-like status then you are a hater and trying to bolster Danny.

Don't take this idiot personally.
Are 6 dogs too many?: mcdannotkeylasunset on May 31st, 2012 12:52 am (UTC)
Steve's God-like status

You are so right about that!!! Thank you for this much needed reality check!!

The fact is - I don't bash my favorite characters in my stories. I just don't. I think that's one of the reasons this "review" threw me for such a loop. I've blocked this person from reviewing any more of my stories of ff.net. Makes me feel a little empowered, anyway.

Thank you so much!!!
