Author has written 6 stories for Transformers/Beast Wars, Harry Potter, Justice League, X-Men: Evolution, Teen Titans, and Kim Possible.
Yo! I'm Ocean's Pebble, OP for short, or Pebble, or even hey you... whatever works for you. I've been lurking around ff.net for... five years? Six? something like that...
I write a ridiculous amount of fanfics, but up until recently my computer and ff.net hated each other, which lead to the phenomenon I like to call 'I can't post anything' - itis. Yes, I will be polishing up and publishing my stuff. Eventually. I have entirely too many plot ideas (stupid bunnies) and far too little actual writing. If anyone wants a story idea for Transformers or X-men: Evolution, contact me and I'll happily hand over the spawning ideas of evil. Or pretty much any fandom in my favorite list, I've got like 5 for any given... oi.
This being said, anyone want to beta?
Personal Information! Yay!
I'm female, Caucasian, and old enough to drive but not old enough to drink. Yet. I am a rather obsessive fangirl, I have an account on Fictionpress under the same name I have here, and an account on Deviantart under Pebbled-ocean. Feel free to look me up if you think it's worth it.
My fanfictions... I read/write Transformers (they're my favorite right now), X-men: Evolution, Teen Titans, Justice League, Mercedes Lackey, Tamora Pierce, Anne McCaffrey, and a bunch of other fandoms... I like playing with crossovers or pulling in ideas from other things. I actually have a vampire Transformer story in the works, and Twilight rewritten... X-men style. XD
My favorite list is very, very, long. That being said, everything on there is funny and/or well written. Ditto for the authors. In my very first year or so, I didn't know how to work the story alert thing (I, being the naive girl I am, thought that particular button was one you pressed to report the story as infringing on the 'no stealing other people's stories, bad copycat!' thing.) and as such there are a few terrible Teen Titan stories that... aren't all that great. I think I've deleted them all though, so just keep that in mind if you find a truly horrible one that has a cliff-hanger at the end and want to bite my head off because I said that it would be good.
I'd like to point out here that I am a serial fanfictioner, meaning that when I read a particularly well-written/thought out story I go to the author's page and read all of the stories in fandoms I know. Then if there are any crossovers with a fandom I know and one I don't, I'll read those too. And if the author puts something about an AU in the story summary and it's a fandom I don't know... I'll read it anyway. That's generally how I get into new fandoms. As such, maybe 1/3 of my favorite list is made up of fandoms that I have actually read the series or watched the movie or series all the way through. The rest I wiki/google/watch the first episode/read the first chapter. Part of that is I can be incredibly picky about what I watch and read, and if the story idea isn't interesting enough I'm not going to continue with it.
So any fic that has rabidly OC characters in it... probably due to the fact I haven't actually read/seen the fandom.
Hmm... I believe that's all. Ah. wait.
OTP or what I won't read/write.
Transformers has such a complex universe that I can't really say I have an OTP for any of the giant robots from space that don't have genders as we understand them, and therefore are all pretty much homosexual even if one has female pronouns and the other male pronouns. This being said, Optimus Prime and Elita, Ironhide and Chromia, are my OTPs in that if the story has them paired with other mechs/femmes I might not read it.
X-men: Evolution... Rogue and Gambit, Kurt and Kitty, Wanda and Sam (the mental image is surprisingly cute), Scott and Jean (I doubt that anyone deserves the pain and suffering that having one of the 'golden pair' as their significant other would cause) Pietro and Rahne, Sam and Rahne, Bobby and Jubilee, Pietro and Laura (X-23, does anyone know if she has a specific name? because Laura crops up a lot, but it's not the only one...) Kitty and Lance, Ororo and Logan... yeeaah... I think that's about it. I have a couple OC's that I like to pull in and pair with my favorite characters, but until those stories get posted I'm not going to put them up.
Teen Titans: Robin and Starfire deserve each other, anyone that tries to say otherwise to me... just, no. No. Not worth the argument and resulting headache. Beastboy and Raven. Terra and Beastboy, Red X and Raven, Speedy and Raven... Really dislike the love triangles with BB, Terra and Raven where Terra comes on top and Raven's left in the dust to angst. Please. Raven's had enough angst, let her have some happiness. I also enjoy Terra and Malchior, a friend wrote a fic about how they got together in Hell, it was fun. Hrrmm... Jinx and Kid Flash, Bumblebee and Cyborg, Speedy and Aqualad I can see, but I generally shy away from the homosexual stuff (TF is explained above. There are like 10 female characters versus 50 bajillion male characters. Obviously gonna be some homo.)
My own thoughts on homosexuality and the acceptance of it are just that, my own. I'm not going to delve into my personal philosophy on the internet because too many people will take the opposing view and rake me over hot coals for daring to agree or disagree. HOWEVER. I have been raised in a very conservative Christian home and that view point lingers. Suffice it to say, in fanfiction I can see Character A paired with Character B, and depending on how well it is written I can find it acceptable. Gender is less important than the character interaction - in the story. Again, outside of fanfiction, my views are my own; and private.
Justice League, Flash/Wally West with Linda Park is the cutest, Batman/Bruce Wayne with Wonder Woman/Diana Prince makes me giggle, Lois Lane and Superman/Clark Kent are perfect foils for each other, Hawkgirl/Shayera Hol and Green Lantern/John Stewart (that is his last name, right? I can be iffy on the real names... o.O) aaand... I think that's it. Wally and Shayera have a wonderful brother-sister relationship, and that's all there is too it.
DC related note: I firmly believe that Starfire is with Tim Drake Robin, and that Dick Grayson is already Nightwing in Bludhaven and is dating/married to/have a thingy with Barbara Gordon.
That's all for now folks!
