New: Sitewide Passive-Aggress-Bullshit Rule

From time to time, interpersonal problems crop up on the site, and they can often fester. Over the years I've come to the conclusion that the single biggest contributor to this festering is under-the-surface, hush-hush, passive-aggressive bullshit. So from now on, Rockfic is instituting a No Passive Aggressive Bullshit rule.

If you have a problem with someone on the site, here are your options:

  • Speak to them directly
  • Contact us if you think I can be of help
  • Post your side of the story on the message board, with names, to get it out in the open and open up discussion
  • Discontinue interacting with them (and if anyone wants to know why, your answer can range from "It's a private matter" to explaining the whole story--just leave out the vague, drama-stirring bullshit)

We approve of and applaud any of the above approaches.

If you choose to allude to a person/problem in order to stir drama, you risk having your account banned for 3 days (or until I remember to unban it, since it has to be done manually). This pertains to the message board, the fic archive, and--if someone logs the chat and sends it to me--in the #rockfic chatroom, as those are all public areas.

If you harass someone, publicly or privately, you risk having your account banned permanently.

If you engage other people in harassing someone, publicly or privately, you risk having your account banned permanently.

Rockfic is now a passive-aggressive-bullshit-free zone. Feel free to report anything posted from today onward that violates this policy. Contact us at admin@rockfic.com.

This is so well-written. Sincerely. You have a gift for the flow of a story, and I get a good idea of the characters' personalities and the way they interact with one another, even though I'm not super-familiar with them. —BaronZemo, for Espea's A Long Way to the Top
Aw man. I think we can all relate to what Neil's going through, with him thinking that his writing isn't good enough. I can definitely feel what he's feeling as he desperately tries to think of what to write. But maybe he'll get some inspiration from Justin's writing? I like the fact that he read it, despite everything that's going on. He seems to be simmering down a bit, beginning to come to terms with the whole situation. I like that he started being affectionate with Alex again, even if it was just hand holding. As he said, it was a big step for them after everything that went down. I also liked Neil's musings about how this could be his family - him, Alex, and Justin. I would like that, and I'm sure all of them would too. I'm wondering how Neil is gonna deal with this new situation, what he might do about his book. Like I said, maybe Justin's writing might inspire him to work on fiction. That'd be pretty cool. I also like that he had someone to talk to about all this, and get advice from. I kind of agree with Brutus on the whole thing regarding Justin and Alex's cheating - the incident was fifteen years ago, and Alex is just trying to save his kid, asking Neil to help even though he knew it could destroy everything. Also, Neil still doesn't know all the details of the situation - I wonder how that'll ever get revealed, if it even does. I hope so - then maybe Neil will fully understand if he knows everything. I'm glad that things are starting to look up a little for Neil and Alex, and I hope Neil can find a way to work through the situation with his writing. Can't wait to see where this will end up!
Dalauranator, for farewelltokings's Felix culpa
Sorry it took me so long to read and review this last chapter. I like saving final chapters of stories I've enjoyed so that I can savor them even longer. Have I mentioned in previous reviews how much I love John? If not, I absolutely love John! If I have, it more than bears repeating. Where would Alex (and even Kyla) be without him? Especially after the events of the previous chapter. So wise and patient and compassionate. In some ways, he's my favorite character of the story. The trajectory of his and Alex's relationship feels very natural and believable. I really like how Alex went from lamenting how John pales compared to Geddy and wondering if he settled to gradually becoming closer and eventually embracing and celebrating the dynamic he has with John. As a remarried widow, I can say firsthand that this is very true to life. Some counselors and fellow widowed people caution against pursuing new relationships within X amount of time, but in my experience, you really have to listen to your own intuition above all others. That seems to be what Alex has done in this story with regard to John, and it turned out to be the right choice in the end. So to say that I appreciated this story on a deeply personal level would be an understatement. :) I also have to say that, as messed up as it may sound at first, I'm glad that Alex was angry at Geddy and questioning their relationship before Geddy was killed (the second and final time). This undoubtedly saved Alex from another round of soul-crushing grief, or at least tempered it in a way that allowed Alex to stay positive and heal. I agree fully with Alex's rationale as to why Geddy's final act was the right thing to do for everyone involved. And I also liked how the subsequent conversations with John were focused on the importance of honesty and getting to know each other fully. The epilogue was a particularly soothing and satisfying read. I can't think of anyone more deserving of a happy ending than Alex and his family, even if the journey to that end was bittersweet and often painful. Thank you for another wonderful read. Your characters always feel like friends to me, and your writing style is superb. I look forward to reading more of your work. And what are these rumors I've heard that you're getting tired of writing fanfiction or running out of ideas or whatever it was you alluded to? Say it ain't so!
Augustine, for farewelltokings's Open Secrets
