    couldn't you have at least called it "One Girl, One Dream, one direction"? it seemed pretty obvious to me - at least then there would have been one good idea in this thing.

    I think that she is doing a fantastic job writing it. So back off and leave people alone! Jeez. People are so horrible these days... I would throw apples at them if they posted hate comments on my story... Which is another reason why I don't use this site to post my stories. We don't need an apple shortage in the world...

    The fatal problem with movellas, and the solutuion

    So movellas is at the brink of civil war, and the teenage girls are starting to use words like "haters", which is starting to pull focus from the real issue - a valid and important problem for the site. I'd lik eto get things back on track by presenting the issue succintly, and giving a solution so that everyone is happy. It isn't a question of being a "hater" of one direction - it is a problem with the quantity and quality of the writing. Fan fictions are basically "puff pieces" a journalistic term that means prose that is so positive, or so "one-sided" that it doesn't have any artistic merit. The problem with fan fiction is that all it has to say is "i like this and this is why" - even if it's dressed up as a narrative story it isn't going to challenge the reader, it isn't going to ask any unsual questions or make you think, it only exists to reaffirm something you already thought = "one direction is good". No persuasion, no discussion, no timeless themes, quirky views of the world, no big issues to think about. It's literally pointless. I have read several one direction fan fics' and they are all weak. I have nothing against the boys themselves, but i do think that writing anything interesting about them when you know so little about them is an impossible task. What we object to is that the huge quantity and poor quality of the fiction is making it impossible for good writing to shine through, and for serious, good writers to find an audience. This is NOT a one direction fan site, it is to promote good writing, to help good writers get seen and to help bad writers get good.The problem is not one direction but fan fiction itself. They have to decide if this is a site for writing, or a site for talking about how much you like something - which is all fanfiction is or could ever be. No great literature has ever or will ever come from fanfiction, and i have never read a one direction fan fiction that passes as good or even competent writing.
    I've always believed that there are no good or bad ideas, just good or bad execution. But fan fiction is taking a single subject, and repeatedly saying how much you like it. Sometimes it's a story, but the principal is always the same - 1D are sexy, they're brooding, i want to have sex with them etc etc. The problem in a nutshell is this - the site is meant for people to write, to explore ideas, to get feedback and to get better. But fan fiction is inherently a creative dead end. It has one idea and one argument - "i like this thing". That's it. It exists to be read by people who are already fans of that subject, and is written by fans of that subject. It doesn't persuade, it doesn't explore - it's a pointless exercise. Fans of 1direction are fans because they are attracted to them - any other reason given is a lie. This is a shallow basis for a story. The lack of basic grammar and too much esoteric language, complete absence of plotting, character development and even rudimentary knowledge of writing fiction found in fan ficiton makes writing or reading it impossibly difficult - there is only one solution. The teenage girls writing 1Direction fanfics are, unfortunately, not the problem. We are. We are in the minority - we are using this site for what it was intended, but we are the minority. This site exists for one other reason though - and it is more important than the sharing of writing; it exists to get users. The more people using it, the more successful it is. Therefore, the creators of the website will be looking to appeal to the majority, not to us - we can whine as much as we like, we do not have the sway to make any changes. You can see from the facebook comments from Movellas that they know teenage girls hold the majority here - every competition, every comment is about Twilight, 1D or some other teenage issues. If you still doubt this fact, here is a mashable article about Movellas;

    " Its biggest demographic is adolescent girls, particularly those who dabble in the Justin Bieber fan fiction genre.“A lot of the girls are dreaming of becoming an author, so it’s the first step for them to try to see how their skills are working,” Felbert says."

    The solution is this, if the site can't/won't cater to our needs - we leave. And here is where we go:
    It has yet to be corrupted by endless reams of bad writing and has no fan fiction genre. Figment is Movellas with better design, more user friendly and better writers. Crucially it is movellas before it was ruined by horny teenage girls who only want to talk about how sexy harry styles is.

    No don't leave people look personally I know I don't want to read any of the 1D fan fiction so I just don't read it. Between working on my own stuff I know there is plenty of other stuff on here I have read and plenty more I do want to check out. But thanks to Sadcat I'd never heard of Figment before so i'm just going to check it out.
