Author has written 5 stories for Outsiders.
I am, as you can see, Angelic Samurai. I am a twenty year old homosexual genderqueer individual who resides in Prince Edward Island, Canada. My hobbies include writing, drawing, playing video games, roleplaying, and talking to my various international friends through Windows Live Messenger and/or Facebook. I have few friends in real life as I tend to stick to the "girl keeps to herself" clause. My friends, family, and my writing shape the person I am to do this day.
What can you expect on this account? The Outsiders slash. The most popular (if not only) pairing you will see out of me is the pairing of Dallas Winston and Ponyboy Curtis. Why? I love their chemistry, dialogue, and how they interact during the book and the movie. Those facts coupled with the sad reality that this pairing is sadly overlooked gives me a burning desire to write for them and show how amazing they can be together. It is safe to say that it is my One True Pairing in The Outsiders, although I do partake in some Curtiscest because I'm an incest nerd at heart for some reason my brain has yet to figure out. In reality, the only exceptions to Dally being paired with someone not Pony is Tim, and for Pony, I'm a bit more linnet (I think that's the word I'm going for). I can tolerate Curtiscest with him, and on the odd, rare occasion that I find something amazing for the pairing, I can like Pony/Johnny to an extent. Despite that being said, Dally/Pony will forever remain my OTP, although I respect if someone has a different pairing view than mine. You can argue with someone all you like regarding pairings, but their views won't change. I save myself from tiring out my fingers and the fact that I'm a bit more mature than that.
Like most writers and/or readers, I have my pet peeves when it comes to fanfiction. My two biggest ones are Mary Sues and inappropriate usage of OOCness. I rarely read fanfiction with an OC because I find that authors/authoresses tend to make the focus their character instead of the characters that are in the original fandom they are writing for. Canon/OC pairings also do not sit well with me; thus, I tend not to read nor write them. However, as I stated before, I will not argue with someone if they love Ocs or Canon/OC pairings. If you respect my views, I will respect yours.
Regarding Mary Sues: Does this have to be explained? Mary Sues are OCs that are nine times out of ten based on the author(ess). They are beautiful, are everyone's best friend, along with smart and know what's going on before the canon characters do. This is a brief definition; I would recommend looking them on a search engine such as Google or Yahoo to get a better one. Most writers I've seen and know personally loathe Mary Sues, and if you would like to avoid possible hate comments, it would be wise to avoid writing one in your work. Of course, my personal belief is that every OC has at least one Mary Sue quality to them, and if you want to have a fun argument with no hard feelings, you're welcome to start a discussion with me regarding this topic. I welcome and encourage a good discussion.
Regarding OOCness: This is an instant kill for me as both a writer and a reader. Of course, OOCness is needed to some extent because this is fanfiction, but despite this fact, you aren't the original maker of these characters, so please, do your best to have OOCness to a bearable level. For example, Dally is a cold, tough hood. An example of a reasonable level of OOCness, to me, is making him show a softer side to those he cares about. A horrid level would be making him a happy person who skips along with a big tooth grin in a field of flowers. Get my point now? -bashes the mental image out of her head-
Now, this is the section of my profile that you all care about. What I'll write. What I won't write. Pairings. Saddle up, amigos!
What I will write: As stated above the line, I will write The Outsiders slash. Also stated above the line is the most popular, if not only pairing you'll see out of me, Dally/Pony. However, I'll take requests for pairings, but please don't ask for something I won't write/a pairing I despise, or, help me, something I won't write coupled with a pairing I despise. Genre wise, I'll write anything but horror. Horror does not sit well with me. It never has, and it never will.
What I will not write: Horror, het, and OCs. That's it, that's all. Not hard to avoid those three things, eh?
Pairings I love
Dallas Winston/Ponyboy Curtis: No doubt my OTP in this fandom. Their chemistry and their dialogue makes me do an internal fangirl squeal whenever I watch the movie or read the book (which I haven't done in a while, sadly). Also, I'm pretty sure Dallas doesn't say "Pony..." at the end of the movie when he (SPOILER) dies for no reason.
Dallas Winston/Ponyboy Curtis/Johnny Cade: My OT3, no questions asked. The only two people Dally gives two shits about are Pony and Johnny, so all three of them together is a perfect picture in my mind. He (Dally) protects Johnny, he understands Pony better than anyone, and he helps them escape when Johnny (SPOILER) kills Bob. The fact that he flips when Johnny dies and then says "Pony" as he himself dies? Yeah, he felt something for them.
Sodapop Curtis/Ponyboy Curtis: In my mind, the most canon incest pairing out there. Usually incest pairings are far fetched, but this one is a far cry from it. They sleep in the same bed, Soda hugs Pony as they sleep, he trusts him more than anyone, and the part where they reunite? Yeah, you seem just a little too excited that your brother is back, Soda. -pats him-
Darry Curtis/Ponyboy Curtis: Their relationship was off to a rocky start, but it improves drastically near the end of the book/movie. In his own way, Darry is trying to look after his younger brother, albeit in the wrong way. Also, he's shown to never cry, but as soon as he sees Pony, boom, he starts crying. Do I have to mention the odd affectionate term? "Baby"? Aren't you supposed to say that to a lover?
Darry Curtis/Sodapop Curtis/Ponyboy Curtis: Oh yes. Smash the three Curtis brothers together and you get the most canon incest threesome that you've ever seen.
Pairings I support
Steve Randle/Sodapop Curtis: I'm a sucker for pairings inspired by the two characters being best friends. Granted I think Steve is a douche (I blame Dally/Pony fics), but hey, maybe Soda can get rid of his doucheness and make him a half decent person. -whacks Steve with fish-
Tim Shepard/Dallas Winston: I believe I enjoy this pairing because they're both cold hoods who've been through more or less the same experiences. I enjoy pairings that have a backstory like that. Two characters who have similar pasts find comfort with each other. Blah. Cheesy. -shoves Dally with Pony-
Ponyboy Curtis/Johnny Cade: You have to admit that their relationship could go a bit further with the right kind of push. Johnny seems to be the first one Pony runs to when something happens, and they're always there for each other. Then again, Dally's there for both of them. Go cheer 'em up, Dal. -shoves Dally with them-
Pairings that don't tickle my fancy
Dallas Winston x Cherry Valance: This one is... I don't know. Something about it just doesn't sit with me. Maybe it's the fact she loathes him, they talk for, what, fifteen minutes which ends with Johnny having to make Dally stop harassing her, etc. In short, this pairing won't sit in my brain. My brain boots it out.
Dallas Winston/Johnny Cade: Yes, I know. "What!?" I dunno, but this one doesn't want to sit in my brain either. My mind will let it sit there as long as Pony is sitting with them, but other than that, my mind kicks it out.
And any other pairings I haven't mentioned, poke me. I may end up enjoying them. Except het pairings. No no to the het.
The random corner! Anyone else think that if Dally gets with Pony, Johnny, or both, and then turns eighteen, he'd be a pedo, particularly if he was with Pony? -claps for that one- For some reason, that thought amuses me more than anything and makes me giggle at the ideas that could happen with that. Did I freak you out with that? Yes? No? Maybe?
And now, the moment you've all been waiting for... STORY INFORMATION! -throws confetti-
Silent Moon: "Under the light of a silent moon, one friend protects another from the black hand of death. However, would that friend take that fate instead? Slash." This is my first Outsiders fanfic and the main pairing is Dallas Winston/Ponyboy Curtis. The summary pretty much tells you what the story is about. I have marked this story as complete, but that may change in the future.
Safe in his arms: "I ran, wanting to forget about it all. Who knew that in my want to be safe, I'd run to the one most would argue was the most unsafe guy in the universe. Slash." Second Outsiders fanfic and this one is a oneshot. Once again, it features the pairing of Dallas Winston/Ponyboy Curtis. I wasn't kidding when I said that it would be the pairing I mainly write. It is written in Ponyboy's point of view and my take on what could have happened after Darry slapped him. Basically one huge ball of fluff, but I hope that Dally isn't too OOC in this one. Annnnnd for some reason, you all love this. -cheers and throws confetti- No, I'm not saying that to stroke my ego. I don't think I have one of those.
Blades of Blood: "If you were gonna be by yourself, you should've carried a blade." What if Ponyboy HAD been carrying a blade? Violence and Slash." Third Outsiders fic, and once again features the pairing of Dallas Winston/Ponyboy Curtis, although if you squint, there are some Johnny/Ponyboy hints. A "what if" story, if you will. Sometimes the temptations are too great to pass up. Meant to be a two-shot, but who knows what will happen with my muses.
Escape: "After Johnny died, the knife was his new best friend. The cutting was his escape. It would take one tiny error to make him realize that a certain someone could have been his escape all along. Graphic imagery. Slash." This was the result of listening to a song obsessively, and it spams 3,000 words. I am quite proud of this piece, despite the graphic nature of it. The pairing, as always, is Dallas Winston/Ponyboy Curtis, but if a person wants to see it, they could see Johnny Cade/Ponyboy Curtis in it. Please heed the warnings, as it is rated M for a reason.
Of Cellphones and Ex's: "Modern day AU. My phone was broken, and I was going to have some hell of explaining to do to Darry, but my ex wasn't going to bother me. Plus, I got to see the protective side of my boyfriend. Win-win situation. Slash." This is inspired from true events that are happening in my life. It's a bit shorter than my usual length, but this was a little fun thing to get me back in the swing of things. I left who Pony's ex was open ended so that the reader could decide for themselves who his ex was. The pairing, you should know by now, is Dallas Winston/Ponyboy Curtis. The rating is to be safe, because of a single curse word.
This is a new section of my profile that will update my fans and readers on current writing status. What I mean by that is the likelihood of sequels, status on the next chapter(s), among other things that have to do with my writings. Ready? Here we go!
Silent Moon: The idea is swimming through my mind for a sequel, but at this time, I have no ideas that are pinned down. If anyone would like to PM me any ideas they have for a sequel, I would appreciate it. Credit will be given for your ideas when the sequel is written. Possible name: Shattering Sun.
Safe in his arms: A follow up story to this is possible in the distant future once I get my bigger projects finished.
Blades of Blood: The second part has been uploaded. This story, I decided, will span more than two chapters. No other multiple chapter stories will be posted until this story is completed.
Escape: This story is staying as it is. There is no likelihood for a sequel, unless the ideas strike me.
Of Cellphones and Ex's: I might do a follow up. It depends on what happens with my fickle muses.
Other: There was an idea that was in my mind for the longest time, but I never had the chance to write it down. It is an Alternate Universe, set in modern day, and the military. I will put a poll up on my profile to see the interest level of this idea being written. If it is high enough, I will get in written and posted within the next few months.
Please remember that I am a writer who is likely to get writers block, just as any other author out there. The status written here is subject to change based on my fickle muses and writers block. Thank you for understanding!
26-3-2013: I know it says that my profile was updated on the 25th, but it is the 26th over in my part of Canada. I would like to apologize for my lack of activity here. If you'd want to see my other works, you can head over to Darkened Dawn of Silence or Aquamarine Alice. Until then, I'll try to get Blades of Blood updated sometime soon, as well as post some new works.
I would like to take a moment to thank every person who writes a review, favorites, or adds one of my stories to their alerts. Your overwhelming support means so much to me, and it is because of you that I am here right now. If any of you would like me to read one of your Outsiders stories and give you my honest opinion, multiple chaptered or one shot, please PM me. I will be happy to do this for you as a thank you for the constant support you give me. Hugs to all of my fans and readers.
