If AO3 stats are anything to go by, there are at least 200 people following my fic, though only around 5 of them ever bother to comment.

I'm kind of glad fic commenting has gone the way of the dodo - means I feel less awkward trying to reply to the comments, and less guilty when I don't bother...

You could always add a note at the start/end of the fic and mention you're not good at replying to comments! I think people wouldn't mind. XD

Yeah I usually start a fic post with an apology of some kind lol. At least most of the fic I've posted lately has been on an anon meme, where leaving comments is more important it's true, but replying to them is pointless and clogs inboxes XD

200 is really impressive and you should be proud! Buuuuuuut I know what you mean.

It's the same deal with the mannequins, 200+ followers (though i know i do lose more and more readers as people move away from LiveJournal) and 2-3 comments per post.
There are times where I have no idea how certain storylines are being received and I'm like " I continue in this direction? Are people sympathising with this character* or do they want to slap them?

*Seiichi. It's always Seiichi.

With a long-running thing people can get a bit lazy with comments... and I guess with the mannequins people don't know if they should talk to the mun or the characters, maybe?

(I'm at least 50 posts behind on mannequin-verse... >_>")

(Mun... you taught me a new word!) But yeah, some people feel weird about that.
On the other end of the spectrum, some people like sending them private messages full of life advice.

One time someone confessed their love to Sengoku in a "he is a mannequin and i know this isn't normal i am so confused" way, then they freaked out and deleted their account.

I don't think you've missed anything too substantial, just filler. I haven't been able to start to my next proper arc because of time constraints, but after my March hiatus stuff'll start rolling again. Hopefully.

What do you write for/where do you post?

That's........... very strange. >_>

Ahhh I see. I think last time I read around 2 years' worth of mannequin posts in one go. XD Seems like that works for me better than following individual posts, it's like watching things in a boxset...

At the moment I'm writing for Fire Emblem: Awakening! I've got an account on AO3 but I always post writings to [ profile] word_games too.
