About Me

Hi! I'm Saeko, and I'm an avid fan of the Sess/Kag pairing! I'm willing to beta for anyone who needs it, so let me know if you do!

Here is my deal:

I'm not going to review just for the sake of reviewing. If I like your story, I'll favorite it. If I like a lot of them, I'll favorite you. I'll give you a review when I'm really impressed, or when I think someone needs some advice in their writing style.

I'm very honest in my reviews - including constructive criticism. While I will not be rude, I also will not pull my punches while telling you what I think. I will tell you exactly what I think you need to improve on. I'm not going to try to tell you which direction your story should go - it's YOUR story. But if you have a character who is not making sense according to the circumstances, I'm going to suggest that you reevaluate your characterizations or the settings the characters are in and what they're going through. If you have typos and grammar issues, I'm going to call you on them. There is no excuse for grammatical issues and typos when there are Word Check, websites like www.grammarbase.com, and a bunch of people willing to beta for you if you ask.

And if you disagree with me when I do comment, no offense, but please don't answer me with something along the lines of 'I'm gonna do what I want to do and it's my right as the author to do it.'

I'm not saying that you, whoever you are, are going to do this but someone already has - and in my opinion it shows not only immaturity but an inability to take constructive criticism and an unwillingness to improve oneself.

I appreciate artistic license as much as the next person - I have all the respect in the world for anyone who has the guts to take a story out of their head and put it to this metaphorical paper where everyone in the world can see - but if I like the story, and tell someone that, and give advice on how it can improve without being rude or inflammatory, then the person receiving the constructive criticism can at least have the respect not to be a brat.

And because it's always been a fantasy of mine to be an editor, here are some corrections to common typos, in case you didn't know them. (These will either be in a sentence or an explanation for why they're contracted.) A couple of them are inspired by Grammarly on Facebook.

Your = "Belongs to you."
You're = "You are."

They're = "They are."
Their = "Belongs to them."
There = "That place over there."

Then = Indicates a time. "I'll see you then."
Than = "I am better than you."

To = "I'll give this to you."
Too = "That's mine, too."
Two = "The number 2."

Meet = Present or future tense. "I will meet you there."
Met = Mostly past tense.* "We've already met."
*Unless you're from Asgard or ancient England. "Well met!"

You do not need an apostrophe when writing:
- 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, etc.
- CDs, PhDs, MAs, etc.
- As, Bs, Cs, Ds . . .Xs, Ys, Zs
- Plurals (unless it may be confused with another word, i.e. As = A’s)

"A lot." Two words, not one.

"Your pants are 'loose' but you 'lose' your keys."

If you're writing a sentence including more than one character in the first person, remember that when you use 'I' or 'me', it should be based on how you would phrase it by itself. Break up the sentence to figure out the proper use of each. For example:

"Jack and I went to the movies." Jack went to the movies. I went to the movies. - Correct.
"Jane and me," or "Me and Jane went to the movies." Or "Jane went to the movies." Or "Me went to the movies." - Incorrect.
"Happy holidays from the kids and me". Happy holidays from the kids. Happy holidays from me. - Correct.

To be continued. ^_^

Hello! Thank you for reviewing on Two Worlds!
I almost have another chapter ready to post. I'm asking my readers what it is they're most interested in seeing when Kagome and Sesshomaru reunite.
Any ideas?
Thank you!

Feedback from Saeko: I don't really have anything in mind for the way you bring the two of them together. You're making it really interesting so far. But I'm wondering if you're going to have Our Sess and Other Sess battle it out. I dunno. One of them is going to be heartbroken either way. Also, it'd be fun to see Inupapa meeting Inuyasha. Just cuz.

Thank you so much for your review on Strange Bandage? I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I'm not sure yet if I will do a sequel, but you have given me something to think about

Hi there!
Thank you for the review on its Only Kinky the First time!
Unfortunately chapter 4 is the last chapter. -thus the "the end"- There's no plan of continuation since that was the end. However, I do have "Virginity of the Soul" that I just began. It will be another semi-PWP. I will be exploring other things in it. Maybe not as many kinks -though I'm not sure yet - but different kind of feeling than its only kinky the first time.

I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Hi there! Thanks for your comment on my dancing Sesshoumaru! I had a blast drawing that one! Even though it is soooo horribly wrong!
Feedback from Saeko: Your artwork continues to amaze me, though I just looked and couldn't find that dancing Sess pic on your profile. I LOVE your eye bleach series, I cracked up.
