Delaney  Burton (delaneyakafrog) | 347 comments Hi, I have been on here a while now but just really got into this site with then the last year. I have seen a lot of abbreviations. I really stink at them and was wondering if anyone would mind helping me with them so I'm not so lost about them. Hope there hasn't been a post about this before. Thanks anyone!

Cindy | 111 comments I've been on here about a year and it took me a while to catch on to some of these too. The thing that really got me frustrated for a while is that people would refer to these great couples from books and I had no clue what books they came from! So, if you're having a similar problem, let me know and I'll gladly type up a list of characters/couples with what books/series they go to! :)
