Summary: I have standards and I’m not afraid to use them. This is a list of story turn-offs that make me hit the back button at the first chapter and not give your story another look at.

(Most of these aren't applicable to Ghosts of the Vanguard, as GoTVG has rules against most of what's listed, luckily, but I thought you might enjoy my list of first impression turn-offs.)

Summary: If you've ever heard of Mary-Sues there will be specific traits in the character or general writing traits that follow them. All bad. You can't write in second person, you can't pair your OC with a Canon character, you cannot have characters come back to life, you can't do this and you can't do that. Well, you know what? I've got complaints about your complaints, so how about that?
