That story of your feedback letters is awesome. Or awful. Or awfully awesome. Or awesomely awful. ROFL!!

You've pretty much put your finger on one of the reasons why I find the Paradise setting so interesting. TG'd characters don't masturbate, or rush out to have sex, etc. With very few exceptions, they have a good deal of trouble getting used to their new bodies, and even after they are used to them don't rush into things—and those who do (Brooke in "After Hours") end up regretting it. (Perhaps it's not the setting I appreciate so much as it is the writers in it. :) —Robotech Master 23:32, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

The nature of the beast

I wasn't deluged by positive feedback when I started posting TG on the internet but I rapidly realised that, assuming you actually try to incorporate things like plot and character development and realistic dialogue, whatever feedback you get is likely to be glowingly positive, quite simply because most TG fiction is... let's just say concerned with other things.

In my experience it exists on a spectrum with people attempting to write something of genuine merit down one end and others just turning out fapping material at the other - transcribing their fantasies, in other words. Not that there's anything wrong with that, it just isn't terribly satisfying on any other level. I've no idea if other people find any sort of erotic charge in my stuff, but most of the ones who feed back to me seem to find the stories involving enough. - Bad Guru 12:51, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
