Genre You DON'T Like
Romanceand sex as a whole genre on its own and not a subplot.

I have the tendency to reply with short phrases like: "She smiled 'Yeah, that sounds great!'" Or "He slept silently."
Could I get tips on how I could write more in-depth or extended responses?
Myself replying that short is a huge pet-peeve of mine.. ^^"

Middle of the road. I can sit back and watch my partner be wonderful and then step up and take my own turn holding the reins. Ideally I like to do both.

Fantasy, Modern Fantasy, Romance, Horror, Mystery.
Genre You DON'T Like
Sci-fi (though I have done and will probably do again), Anime, most fandoms/cannon, Furry

Maybe providing a few examples of what you are replying TO will make it easier for people to help you with this.

Also, keep in mind when you are posting you should be giving your partner something to reply to. Just saying "he slept silently" gives your partner (group) nothing to reply to and you'll end up with lots of parallel posts and no plot progression.
