Dear fanfic writers:

The word is "poring," not "pouring." As in, "he was in his room, poring over recent newspaper articles." Every single recent fic in which I've found this word has used it wrong. That's at least fifteen separate fics. FOR FUCK'S SAKE.

One more time and I'm going to declare a moratorium on the word "broken" as a catch-all for any vast set of negative emotions you're too damn lazy to describe or specify.

STOP SHIFTING YOUR CHARACTER POV'S IN THE MIDDLE OF A FUCKING PARAGRAPH. In fact, preferably, pick one and stick with it.

Thank you from those of us who are spending recent weeks doing nothing but popping oxy and reading fic on the internet. Even losers have standards. Good day.
