Hey there! I'm Incarnate Firefly, writer and beta-reader on fanfiction.net. If this is your first time here, I'd like to thank you for coming to check out my profile and I hope you see something that catches your interest. If you're one of my returning readers, please vote in that poll you see above if you haven't already, before you proceed with your business here today. If you're here because you want me to be your beta-reader, you know where the link is. But please drop me a message first so you can tell me if there's anything I should know about your story before I look into it. And if you're here for no reason...uh, hey, what's up? XD
I don't believe in the "fanfiction is for dorks" stereotype, because it's prejudiced, and quite frankly, incorrect. I'm of the belief that writing is writing no matter what it's about, and if you can do it well, then people shouldn't judge you on whether it is or isn't original material. And I even think that sometimes fanfiction can be done so well that it not only stands out on its own, but it makes what it's based on more developed, emotional, or vivid. To accomplish this is the goal I set for myself every time I write a fanfiction story, and I hope that one day I'll be good enough to create an entirely new world from nothing with that same feeling. In the meantime, fanfiction is a good practice for getting there and I'm enjoying giving something more to the stories I love, whether it's from a movie, book, video game, or anything that catches my interest. In other words, if you're not too old for writing, then you're not too old for fanfiction. And everyone knows that you're never too old for writing.
I generally don't like crossovers, AUs, songfics, self-insert stories, or stories with little/no canon character involvement. Just putting that out there. And it goes without saying, poorly written stories or ones with little character development don't impress me either. That said, if your story is really well written, I'll probably put out a lengthy, detailed review on why I like it. And I'll probably favourite it too, maybe follow you if you write more stories of the same category.
Apart from writing, I also like to listen to and write music, make animated music videos (grr, YouTube copyright policies), and if I have the time, draw whatever I feel like drawing. I guess I like to explore the realms of creativity and making something unique from artistic, open things because I simply love the idea of contributing to something of infinite possibilities. That's probably why I enjoy writing so much and all those other things I just mentioned.
If you want me to take the time to beta-read your story, please take the time to make read my beta profile first to make sure you're not sending me something I specifically said I wouldn't read. That way neither of us will waste our time and there won't be irritation on my part. And don't worry, I'm not a harsh reviewer; as long as you understand that I'm trying to help you, I'll do my best to make sure you get something out of me beta-reading your story.
