oh I found a good one. sakura turning a 180 on naruto after the sasuke retrieval arc, naruto actually succeeds, but one glance at a beaten up sasuke, sakura forgets her thoughts of naruto after he left the front gates and hates naruto with ever fiber of her being. totally unrealistic.
You've pretty much encompassed 75% of NaruHina and Sakura-bashing fics there
putting japanese words in with english. nuff said.
I don't mind some, if it's a cultural reference or concept that would be awkward to translate as casual speaking.
Some people also put the Japanese names of foods in their stories and although I dislike interrupting the story to look them up, I do because I like to know and generally it's something I am completely unfamiliar with, so it's helpful.
But there are English words for "thank you," "sorry," "idiot," etc. and it's probably not necessary to use the Japanese words.
I have. I don't give them feedback, as a rule. And the ones that demand feedback as ransom for a new chapter with get nothing as well. Which is sometimes a shame.
Yeah they get nothing from me either. The fact that they feel that entitled to reviews is almost on par with reviewers who think the author is their bitch (thankfully never happened to me) and will change the story/add the reviewer's favourite pairings/whatever just because they ask.
I wish more people who favorite my stories would say something but I don't ask. I write for myself, so anything I get is a bonus. It would just be nice to see what people do or don't like sometimes.
This is my exact attitude. As I rule if I favourite something it means I really like it, so it's only fair to let the author know why.

I agree with this to an extent, but don't mind Japanese for fandom-specific terms like jutsu names and words that just don't translate. Suffixes are okay too.
Admittedly though, I prefer it over something like "cock." I fucking hate that word.
If I'm reading a lemon, I don't mind its use. But when I'm the one writing it, I try my best to avoid it at all costs.
To quote one of my A/Ns:
...but I have a problem with writing immaturely. By 'immaturely', I mean like this: "He 'X'ed his 'Y' inside her wet 'Z' and pounded her so hard into the ground that she was tasting the centre of the Earth."
^^ It's a very YMMV thing I guess. I think it sounds kinda crude if people use words like cock excessively (every single time it's mentioned being my definition), saying it once or twice I don't really have a problem with. But I don't read that many lengthy sex scenes so...yeah.
I agree, it is annoying as hell when people constantly use romaji in their fanfictions.
Good example of putting romaji in English fanfics:
"I stopped by a shop and got these, and thought you would like them." The blonde proceeded to show the kunoichi a pair of sparkling green earrings he took from his shuriken pouch. He couldn't help but notice the pink haired kunoichi's eyes light up and were now shining as brightly as his gift. "Here you go Sakura-chan." He said with a grin from ear to ear.
The kunoichi was taken back by Naruto's action, but found the time to take the gift. "A-Ara, Kawaii. Domo arigato gozaimasu Naruto kun." She replied while fighting back the tint of pink that threatened to form on her cheeks. Her baka of a teamate did have his rare moments, but she couldn't let him know that.
These words gave Naruto an undescribable amount of relief. " Sugoi, I was afraid you wouldn't like the-" At that moment a stone had been thrown an hit Naruto right between the eyes.
"Oi, baka. What do you think you're doing?" Said the raven haired shinobi, who was sitting casually on the neighboring rooftop. "Instead of being an baka, how about you get ready for our mission, dope." the sole survivor of the Uchiha added bluntly.
"Itai, Itai, Itai..." the blonde muttered. "Oi, Sasuke do you need me to kick your ass again?" Naruto smirked as he saw his remark sparked a reaction from him. "Doesn't matter if I'm a baka, because I'm still stronger than youuuu." The blonde added in a mocking tone.
Sakura covered her face with the palm of her hand as the two shinobi began to bicker back and forth. "For Kami's sake, you're both baka as far as I'm concerned." Despite her actions, she would cherish these moments with her nakama for the rest of her life.
Some authors have no idea how irritating this is for people who practice both languages.
