|Trajectory of Simplicity|
Author has written 8 stories for His Dark Materials, Fire Emblem, Baten Kaitos, and Golden Sun.
I realize that "Trajectory of Simplicity" isn't a very easy name to simplify (oh the irony), so if "Trajectory of Simplicity" is too long to type, then just call me Simplicity. Or Simple. Or if you know my previous pen name, PinayAngel.
Note: I can be sarcastic. Very sarcastic. So if I ever write something mean, chances are, it was sarcasm.
Note2: I am seriously about to go on a major editing spree. If time allows me, that is. That's okay because I'm having fun both here in the cyberworld and in real life! So I'm just one of those really lucky people. :)
My view on Reviews:
I love reviews as much as the next guy. Really. But...you see, I write because I love it. I write because the games/cartoons/books/whatever really inspire me and I want to write about it. So, drop me a review, definitely! I'm putting this on my profile because I want you all to know that I love reviews. Really, I do. But I will never beg, never bribe, never take up thirty lines in an author's note asking for a review. I won't write for the publicity. I won't write for the hits. I won't write for the reviews. I write because I want to and that's all.
However, I'm very free-giving on my reviews. Haha. I know some people love getting reviews so much that they ask and ask for it and I don't blame them at all! In fact, I really really like reviewing other people's stories, giving them feedback or encouragement! It gives me a nice feeling knowing I connected with someone across the world (or country or street, or whatever) and bonding with them over their piece of hard work. I won't review everything I read. Haha far from it! But I'll review a lot. And don't be surprised if I drop a review in on you as well :)
Current song that I think you all should REALLY listen to:
Walking in Your Footsteps
(They say the meek...shall inherit the earth...)
I believe everyone should always believe in themselves. I believe in never putting one's self down. I believe that people should always try to be optimistic about themselves. No one's going to do it for you, so why don't you encourage yourself?
I also believe in God. I believe He sent His only Son to die for us for our sins. And I also believe He loves us with a neverending love. You know, my whole life, I felt inadequate. I felt I wasn't good enough, not pretty enough, not smart enough. Others my own age, they effortlessly do everything, and I don't ever seem to be enough. But ever since January 20th, 2011, the day that I officially allowed God into my life, my heart, my mind, and my soul has been at peace. I'm okay with who I am now, not just because of all my friends and family I have supporting me, but also because I know that no matter what I do, God will always support me, despite my failings,despite my weaknesses. He has shown me that time and time again. Now, I feel as if I can be myself, without worrying about what others think of me because the only person whose judgement matters is God's and I know He is proud of me no matter who or what I become. I've failed Him so many times in my life. I've turned my back on Him, cursed Him, doubted Him, and for a time, I almost believed He truly didn't exist. And yet, even though I've done all of this, He still continues to bless me with an amazing family, wonderful friends, and even the good fortune to be able to type on this computer. I am so blessed because God loves me. And He also loves you, too. No matter what kind of hardships, no matter what kind of troubles you have, if you but turn to Him, if you but ask Him for help, He will give it to you. Because that's what He did for me.
I hate OOC-ness. Ruins fics for me. I will literally close the internet window in disgust and walk away and try to erase the OOC-ness from my mind. I mean, not only are you taking away from your own writing skills, but you are doing a great injustice to the amazing work of art that you are writing for! If you're gonna write a GS/Fire Emblem/Cardcaptor Sakura/ whatever fic, then at least write the characters true to their personality! At least give the original game/anime/book some justice!
However, there are always exceptions. If the OOC-ness is BELIEVABLE (ie: mental disability, emotional trauma, humor) then I can and WILL forgive you.
Fics are supposed to be nostalgic and are meant to make you fall in love with the original game/book/anime all over again.
Saying that, I love AUs. Lots of people don't and I understand why. But I think playing around with a character we all know love, put 'em in a different, AU, situation, and the writer really grows in their understanding of the character and increases their overall ability to analyze a fictional persona. This, in turn, helps a writer's ability to develop character, plot, and allows opportunity for the writer to learn how to make a story flow. Aaaaand I'm rambling. But, anyway, there's my spiel about my views on AUs.
NOTE ON OOC-ness: I understand there is a difference between actual out of character-ness in a fic and simply a different interpretation of what a character is like and how they act. For example, some people might think Kalas from Baten Kaitos is a brave, but lost soul, while others might believe he's just a misunderstood jerk who doesn't care about anything but revenge until the end of the game. It's all up to interpretation. But if you portray Kalas as a weak ninny who has no guts or voice, then I'm sorry, but that's definitely OOC (of course, a weak ninny Kalas would be a very funny thing to read about, though xD). But like I said, there are the exceptions.
I believe the very word "Disclaimer" is completely self-explanatory and doesn't require me to write a whole copyrights thing. Anyway, it should already be known that if I owned anything that I write about, I wouldn't even be here. So there you have it. My universal disclaimer.
I do support all pairings because I believe everyone has a right to their own opinion. However, I also believe that these characters are fictional. Therefore, I do not find it strange that I enjoy multiple Mia (from Golden Sun) pairings. Nor do I find it strange that while I may find certain pairings to be less than appealing, someone else in the world may have that pairing as their OTP. Such is life, and I support their opinion.
Golden Sun: Isaac/Jenna, Felix/Sheba, Garet/Mia, Ivan/Sheba, Isaac/Mia, Felix/Mia, Piers/Mia
Dark Dawn: (I consider this separate because Dark Dawn has so many new characters) Matthew/Sveta, Matthew/Karis, Tyrell/Karis
NOTE: I love Eoleo/Himi family fluff. You know, like, stupid uncle doting on wonderful niece kind of thing?

One Piece: All of 'em. Haha. No, let me explain. I like thinking of the Straw Hats to be more of a family than anything else. Sure, I like Nami/Luffy just as much as the next guy, but I think the Straw Hats hold a bond much too intimate and powerful to really permit just two people to belong together. Honestly, I'll be really happy if everyone in the Straw Hats die without getting married, but staying on the Thousand Sunny to be with each other forever. I don't usually say this about a fictional story (I'm a sucker for romance), but the Straw Hats' familial ties is just too beautiful to tarnish it with romantic love. There. My piece is said. Now I need to wait for the next 60 volumes and 500 episodes to finally finish the series xD
and probably more.
The reason for the random bolded sentences at the end of my more recent fics: Where do I begin? Well, let's start with that those sentences are the reflections of the kind of person I am now. I am random and hyperactive. I am also brave enough to say weird things that most people are too cowardly or self-conscious to say. The thing is, I became this way because of the friends I have made. They helped shape me into the more confident person I am today. If you had known me two years from now, you would say that I was quiet, soft-spoken and had no voice. But that's changed now. So, I would like for you to think of these strange phrases as not only metaphoric extensions of myself, but as a tribute to those amazing people who have helped break me out of my shell and shaped me into this clear-voiced girl I am today.
Till Death Are We Reunited: (His Dark Materials: completed) decided to just make it into a one-shot. All inspiration for this has ended and one-shots are easier. Lyra and Will have died and they are looking forward to seeing each other again.
Enslaved: (Fire Emblem; complete) Set in the world of Elibe. Serra annoys Erk to no end. But one day, she gets sick and he almost loses her. He realizes exactly how much she means to him. Erk/Serra one-shot. I like how this fic turned out. Please check it out :) I'm in love with the Fire Emblem section, so please look forward to future works. I really wanna get back into writing and Fire Emblem is an endless well of possibilities.
Exhibition Trick: (Fire Emblem; complete) Another one-shot. FE8. Innes realizes that in order to keep Vanessa's heart, he's gonna need to stop being so distant. Innes/Vanessa fluff dedicated to Hikaru Yamamoto. Please read it :)
Their Curse and Their Prayer: (Baten Kaitos; complete) One-shot. Malpercio, mainly Marno-centric. My first attempt at a drabble. The world is filled with contradictions. Malpercio is no exception. Extreme editing. Turned out okay. So, please. Feel free to read! :)
A Koa Monkey With No Eyes: (Baten Kaitos; complete) One-shot. Origins. Guillo reflects upon some memories with its two companions. The affection they had for each other was blatantly obvious. The only thing was, they were as blind to it as a koa monkey with no eyes. Sagi/Milly, seen through Guillo's eyes. I really liked the idea as I was writing it and I would love to hear what the rest of you think. Please read it. I hope you enjoy :)
Lost: (Fire Emblem; complete) One-shot. FE8. Eirika-centric. A long time ago, she valued every life. A long time ago, she was appalled by the very thought of killing. But that girl is lost. Idk what my own opinion of it is, but I hope you all like it anyway. I caution you, however. I changed the rating to M purely because of the graphic violence and heavy mentions of blood. Anyway, it is another drabble and I hope you enjoy :)
The Small Moments: (Golden Sun; complete, yet in-progress) one-shot collection, GS and TLA. This oneshot collection is based on the original 8 Adepts of Weyard, the Warriors of Vale (Isaac, Garet, Ivan, Mia, Felix, Jenna, Sheba, Piers). Also, Kraden may be thrown in from time to time. The focus is to capture the small moments that helped lead to the development of friendship and trust between the group throughout their journey. Each one-shot is going to be independent of each other, but some might be relatable to another (for example a sequel one-shot to a one-shot previously made). The genre is purely friendship and will never have romance. Some one-shots will be very serious, some will be sweet and cute, while some might just be plain silly. The stories within the collection will always be complete, but the collection itself will never be complete. I will continue to make one-shots so, yeah. I really hope all of you will enjoy! :D
Room, Ship, School, Ship, Home: (Baten Kaitos; in-progress) Five-shot. Origins. Milly-centric. Confined to the walls of a sheltered life, even as a child, Milly dreamed, hoped, for something more than just a room, ship, school, ship, and room. She wanted freedom, and a home. Milly is a very free-spirited girl, considering her sheltered backgrounds. I can just imagine her living this life that she hated, wanting more than anything freedom from the monotony of her home. I wanted to capture her struggle for freedom and hope in the environment of a father who loved her but not really. In other words, I just wanted to talk about Milly's life and hopefully capture something more. I hope you enjoy :)
Thanks for reading my profile. And thank you, all of you, who have read my stories and reviewed my stories. Profiles are long...
