For instance, I'm not keen on reading fic where it's light text on a dark background. I'd much rather have black text on a light-colored background. It's much easier on the eyes. I've seen some where the text is dark red on black and I wonder, how do they expect people to see that? Don't people need contrast any more?
I've also seen sites where the text is all centered. I'm not talking full justification. I mean centered. Unless it's a nominated story, I don't even stick around to give the story a go. It's just not worth the headache it would give me.
Does anybody else hate where the story itself takes up a skinny column within the page and you constantly have to page down to get three words to a line? No? That must just be me then.
I know some people print up stories to read offline, which I supposed solves some of the issues. I just don't have the time or space for that. I read so much for LLGA and VK that it's not practical. And the people who've printed up *my* stories?!? My mind boggles. That's a *lot* of paper. I printed up Rhapsody once (the only one of my stories that I've done this with) and all I could hear in my head was the Emperor saying to Mozart in Amadeus, "Too many notes." Note: I am not comparing myself to Mozart. I just know how damn wordy I am. ;)
Obviously, the thing to be learned here is I read too much fic. :)
