About my writing:
I am a fanfiction reader and writer of Wicked, Sailor Moon, CSI: New York, House MD, X-Men and Criminal Minds. My favourite Sailor Moon pairing is Minako/Setsuna, Setsuna being my favourite character out of Sailor Moon. There aren't enough stories about dear Setsuna so I make it my business to write them. She's a really deep and mysterious character and I love writing about deep stuff. :D
Setsuna, i.e. Sailor Pluto, is my favourite character to write about and is the focus of my deepest fics (especially the more recent ones e.g. 'Duty Driven'). I like her air of mystery and stoic personality that comes with regard to being the guardian of time, and this has led me to write fics which explore deep into her mind, especially with regard to her solitude / loneliness and the fact that she's been around centuries longer than the other senshi. I have a tendency to exploit the darker, lonelier side of her personality so my fics about her can seen a bit angsty (Especially 'Duty Driven' which was so angsty that I upped the rating) but they hopefully do a decent job in discerning the way things are from her perspective, because she is so different from the other senshi.
I consider myself an extremely emotional writer, this meaning that I take any situation and write all the thoughts and feelings behind it. I seem to have a knack for writing very depressing things. Just read 'Duty Driven' - someone actually sent me a message asking me if I'd been through depression. Just for your reassurance, don't worry, no I haven't. I've just written about it. I'm not as keen on inventing and writing big, fancy, complex plots which renders me a little crap at action fics. My thing is romance and emotions. So, for example, with something like CSI: New York, I prefer to explore the character pairings, or the hardships in the characters' lives than, say, invent some grand murder scheme with a really clever twist that completely throws off the readers.
I like to think that when I write, I succeed in creating a basis for my character pairings. One thing I get so fed up of is stories where two characters are already in an established relationship, or where they randomly end up hopping into bed with each other. When I want to write a relationship, I try to write the events so that the resulting relationship is realistic and believable. Simply saying that two characters are together just for the sake of it doesn't work and is, in my personal opinion, lazy.
Things that bug me in fics:
1. People always make out that Stella (CSI: New York) is this superwoman who does everything by herself. And ok, I get it. She's strong, independent and feisty. But one thing that some writers fail to acknowledge is that Stella does in fact know how to ask for help and she does sometimes cry in front of other people. Look at episodes such as 'All Access' and 'The Ride In' - both of these are good examples of Stella's more vulnerable side, and clearly show her reaching out to other people.
2. Another CSI: New York one - 'Peyton and Stella hate each other and have a bitch fight' fics: It is clearly shown in the episode 'Point of View' that Stella and Peyton do not actually hate each other. In fact, Stella is glad to see her again. The concept of Peyton being a bitch or rivalling with Stella might work well in SOME AU fics, but if you're writing canon stories, DON'T DO IT.
3. Character X realizes they're in love with character Y and character Y realizes they're in love with character X but both think the other one doesn't love them so they mope around for ages while all the other characters can see it's obvious they're head over heels for each other, then loads of drama happens and they finally confess their love to each other and live happily ever after. What a cliché.
4. X/Y Established relationship. No, people, that's not the way it works. You do not simply take two characters and decide that they're randomly together. That's not how it works! If you want two characters to be together, you have to create a basis for their relationship or else it's just not believable. Nor is it believable if you get two characters hot for each other then they hop into bed together. NO. PLEASE.
5. Really awful sex scenes. There is a way to write them well, and so many people don't do it. Writing a sex scene in fanfiction is ENTIRELY DIFFERENT to writing a sex scene in erotic fiction. It's not supposed to sound like a porno! So please, PLEASE stop going into such graphic detail and using crude language because it's extremely off-putting!
