2/3/13 SPECIAL NOTE: ON UPDATES
Second semester has begun, which means a LOT more writing will be uploaded...you have been warned. I'm currently working on updates for all my incomplete fics, but I'll probably upload a lot of new ones/drabbles/oneshots as well.
If the fic is not specifically noted as being on hiatus or discontinued, you can safely bet that I am still working on it. Inspiration strikes when it strikes and although I appreciate that you like my fics enough to want fast updates, I'm going to work at my own pace. Thank you :)
2/3/13 SPECIAL NOTE: CLEANUP
I've deleted some of the old fics that made me want to vomit when I read them--namely the "Ten Things to Do" series and "Keep DREAMING" (which was discontinued anyway).

Pairing preferences: Really like yaoi, if only because certain anime lack strong girl characters for me to ship guys with. But I started out as a straight pairing fan, and I still am if the pairings are good. Yuri is...meh... My one guilty pleasure is characterxmultiple fics. I just find them really interesting...
Favorite types of fanfiction:
-I love well-written OC fics. Special stress is placed on the well-written part.
-I've recently gotten obsessed with time travel fics. You know, character goes back in time, changes the storyline, etc. etc. etc. Good writing is still important, though.
-I also like what-if fics. This includes stuff like "what if Jiraiya had taken better care of Naruto" or "what if Snape liked Harry paternally" or "what if Tsuna had a twin brother who became Decimo instead."
-Finally, anything that's well thought-out, deep, and well-written earns itself a place in my favorites.
-Note: my favorites/favorite authors probably no longer reflect my likes since I favorited most of them a loooooong time ago.
Least favorite types of fanfiction (BURN IT):
-Anything that's so grammatically bad that it kills my eyes.
-Mary Sues that are so obvious I want to throw my computer out the window.
-OOC for a fanfic that's not meant to be crack or parody.
I remember seeing something like this years ago and thinking it was really useful as an FF rookie, so here's
MARMAROTH'S HANDY-DANDY GUIDE TO FANFICTION TERMS*
*using mostly Harry Potter examples because a lot of people know the series.
more will be added as I think of them.
fanfiction: stories written by fans of a certain book/TV show/movie/game/cartoon/etc. about that...thing's...characters, plot, world, etc. Often shortened to "fanfic" or "fic" or "ff."
fandom: the characters/plot/general obsession over that book/TV show/movie/game/cartoon/etc. Harry Potter is a fandom. So is Naruto, Bleach, Twilight...
pairing: the romantic couple involved in a fanfiction or fandom, usually denoted by "x" or "/" or just by connecting names*. Ex: HarryxGinny, HarryGinny, Harry/Ginny. *some pairings also have special "nicknames." Ex: SeverusxHarry is often denoted as "Snarry."
ship: v. to obsess/fanboy/fangirl over or really really like a pairing
OTP: stands for "one true pairing"--means your favorite pairing or the best one you can think of
yaoi: Japanese term for boy-on-boy love, usually involves some kind of sexual situation
slash: term for boy-on-boy love
shounen-ai: Japanese term for boy-on-boy love, usually simple and innocent--limited to holding hands, kissing, etc.
yuri: Japanese term for girl-on-girl love, usually involves some kind of sexual situation
shoujo-ai: Japanese term for girl-on-girl love, usually simple and innocent--limited to holding hands, kissing, etc.
AU: stands for "Alternate Universe," means the fanfiction involves the characters of the fandom in a different world/dimension/situation--for example, a high school AU of Harry Potter means Harry, Hermione, and Ron go to a normal high school instead of Hogwarts and Hogwarts may not exist
canon: 1. adj means that whatever is being described actually happens in the official fandom. For example, HarryxGinny is canon. HarryxHermione is not. In the Twilight canon universe, Bella becomes a vampire. 2. n refers to the actual fandom, or what actually happened in the fandom. In a non-canon fic--or a fic that "doesn't follow" the canon--Bella may stay human.
crack: describes fanfiction that is crazy or out of the normal, written purely for fun because it's not supposed to make sense. May also be used to describe pairings of people who would never actually get together in the real series--like HarryxDumbledore. Yes, it exists.
fluff: describes really cute romance/friendship/family scenes.
lime: describes implied sexual situations
lemon: describes actual sexual situations
OC: stands for "original character," used in the ff context when the author inserts his/her own unique character into the canon
OOC: stands for "out of character," means that in a fic a character acted/spoke a certain way that he/she normally wouldn't in the actual canon (note: do not confuse with the term above!)
Mary Sue: a female OC who's so perfect it's unbelievable and disgusting [AVOID]
Gary Stu: a male OC who's so perfect it's unbelievable and disgusting (rarer than Mary Sues) [AVOID]
centric: means that the fic is centered around a certain character(s), focusing on that character's development/thoughts/life/etc.; can also imply that a certain character is being pursued romantically by multiple people in the fic
