Author has written 6 stories for Pokémon.
Writer... Artist as both a life-consuming hobby and hopefully future profession. :) If you ask me to draw you a cover or something, I'll do it for free. (but if you want to send me an iTunes card as thanks... I'd go buy more music with it, hardy har har)
Urgh... Second Semester... But! I still don't do jack! I come back home around 3 O'Clock Central time.
So, to get to my deviant art account, this is the link http://aerorwen.deviantart.com/
On there, you will find pics of characters in my fan fictions, which currently consists solely of GSTA, hahaha. Any McHoo, once you go there, there will be a section that says, "Newest Deviations". At the bottom of that, you can "Browse Gallery". Once there, on the left there are 'folders'. The top one is labeled "GSTA". Click that and you'll be looking at my art for GSTA!
I have not only my own characters, but characters like Riley, Steven, Red, Blue, and ect. Any submitted OC's are also there. At the current moment, that folder is a bit empty since I am redoing a lot of the pictures not that I have refined my skills more and have better tools.
Now, I know that you guys are probably thinking, "Writers ought to stick to their keyboard." I know, I know... But I'm an artist before I'm a writer, so there's not much need to worry. I may not be the best, but I am not the worst either.
All the pics on this site I have done myself (profile, cover for my stories, and the cover for 'The City and the Ghost' and 'Set Yourself On Fire', both by DarkAngelTorchic. If you like my work and want a cover or a profile pic, feel free to ask me. I'd love to draw you one. All you have to do is ask, tell me what you want, and I'll get it to you ASAP.
Gotta Steal Them All?: Ending very soon.
As of now, I plan to do GSTA in a series with a separate arc for each region.
General Series info: GSTA is kinda a... Cult story, so to speak. It sports action, some dark themes, crime, suspense, and me poking holes in the weak spots of the official Pokemon storyline... And a whole lot of Sam doing whatever it is that takes his fancy at the time. So if you like good action, dark themes, suspense, just a pinch of romance, sarcasm, and a little conspiracy with your classic story, you'll probably enjoy GSTA. Of course, if you also enjoy a story that has nothing to do with the basic principle of training pokemon to be the best, then you'll really like GSTA because it has very little to do with anything of the normal sort.
Gotta Steal Them All?: The story begins with Sam, a thief of 16, almost 17, and a member of a secret organization known as the Guild. He steals a ditto from Professor Oak, among other items of value. This ditto quickly becomes his partner in crime, but he learns that this ditto is also a very malicious thing with a volatile nature. He goes through the region, contacting the gym leaders, trying to find one who is leaking information and money to Team Rocket, the Guild's long time enemy. Along his journey, he picks up a confused abra who thinks she's a cat, a pacifist bulbasaur, a battle-scarred scyther, and a war-like chansey. Oh, the adventures he will have.
Story length: 17 chapters
This story, the original, was posted two years ago... My skills were, well, not quite matured and I wrote it thinking no one would ever read it. Surprise! People did. I went back and edited it a year later but it's still very rough. Basically, give it a chance, I get MUCH better later on (starting at chapter 5 when I get a beta helps). It needs to be redone and I might give it another whirl soon since I have some spare time.
GSTA: Johto: Three years later, Team Rocket has returned under new leadership. Sam has been waiting a long time for them to resurface and is not about to let them slip from his grasp again. Taking the region by storm is a boy named Ethan, another boy named Silver who is Giovanni's son, and a young girl named Lyra who's innocence brings a light into the darkness. Faced with his last chance to get his ditto back from Team Rocket, Sam is not taking any risks.
Story length: 17 chapters
-Also needs some work.
GSTA: Hoenn: A whole year-long vacation later, Sam is back in action and trouble, like any good criminal. With Brendan at his heels, May beating heads together with her strong pokemon, Steven trying to keep him under some semblance of control, and a region on the verge of a potentially disastrous geological battle, Sam is in for another wildly crazy adventure. But as Team Aqua and Magma clash even more, Sam begins to question their motives. Something's up in Hoenn and he hopes to find out what before it's too late, come Hell and high water. Based off Emerald.
Story length: 17 chapters
And the story picks up again, two years after the events of Hoenn. Sam is interacting with Dawn, the somber Professor Rowan's cheerful assistant, and Barry, Matt's cousin. Haunted by betrayal and moles, Sam has to rely on his wits, his friends, and a sharp blade to take down Team Galactic and hopefully keep Cat and Michael out of Team Galactic's hands. The story you know was only the tip of the iceberg. Based off Platinum.
Story length: 22 chapters
* GSTA: Unova *
Sam has been in many hostile situations, but now, not only is he in a completely new region,
And here we fall into mystery...
My brain has yet to decide what it wants to do and it can't be rushed.
Big thank you to my Beta and good friend, DarkAngelTorchic, who is always helping me out! :) I highly recommend her fan fic, 'The City and the Ghost' and it's sequel, 'Set Yourself On Fire'. You can find it in my 'Favorite Stories.' Actually, I highly recomend all her stories.
Title: The Fall
Well... I'll definitely be giving the world of pokemon another whirl. This time in Kanto as female protagonist Leaf.
le gasp!* Noteleks is doing a normal canon character? WHAT?!
I'll be publishing this in the summer along with a comic on my DeviantArt account.
No, I am not sharing my ideas yet. You can be inspired by my story idea after I start writing it, thankyouverymuch.
This one will be in Johto with Lyra (a slight variant of my GSTA characterization of Lyra) and her twin sister, Tana. Tana is a character belonging to my BFF so, if I can convince her, she'll be co-writing with me. If she does, mind your manners and your language.
Other Possible Stories / Major fandoms
Pokemon: I got some one-shots floating around in my head.
Left for Dead 2: I have been considering an actual L4D2 story featuring Simone Mercier, a serial killer, and her decent into the depths of the disease after she is bitten. It’s hard to say what she will become, only that she will and it’s only a matter of time.
Harvest Moon: I've thought of several ideas but nothing's come to a head yet so I probably won't.
Prototype: I frickin' love this game. But absolutely no idea what I would write for it and, frankly, it's a little too awesome for that.
Phantasy Star 0: I really like that game and I do have little story floating around in my head, but don't count on it.
Dragon Age II: A reasonable possibility. I do SERIOUSLY love the game but I haven't really thought of a story for it yet. I got nothing.
Animal Crossing: I do have an idea for this story, but it would totally be taking back seat to GSTA. So I don't know. And nothing is really set in stone about it other than the fact that I could easily do one.
Assassin's Creed: The thing about Assassin's Creed is that... It's far to awesome to be defiled by fan fictions (especially romantic ones).
Tips for Writing: Not that I'm claiming to be perfect, but I thought I'd share my... advice/opinions.
Need that perfect name? Check out - behindthename [dot] com -
Need that perfect surname? Check out - surnames [dot] behindthename [dot] com -
Need some random characters to throw in, OC's and the like? Maybe just a decent description for a random person your character is going to interact with? Check out SeventhSanctum. *google it. This site sports character generators of various detail. Easy to use and ungodly hilarious. I have literally spent hours goofing off on that site, I love it to death.
Get a beta. And look for one who's 'bio' sounds kinda mean and they flat out say that they will be blunt if you're good or not. Also, check the last time they updated their profile and also the last time they updated their stories. If it's been a year, don't bother. They won't answer. Also, look for someone who has played/watched/has experience in whatever fan fiction you're writing about. And find SEVERAL. PM SEVERAL. If you PM 10, one will probably respond. And then talk with your beta about future plot points. Not enough that is spoils it all for them, but enough that they can form an opinion about whether you're going a good direction or a bad one.
Get a publishing schedule. Weekly, monthly, daily, every other day, every other week, every 10 days... Something solid that people can expect from you. Sometimes you can't make your deadline and that's okay, but try to not be completely erratic. Do your best. I've missed deadlines before, writer's block is a bitch, but having a schedule makes it easier for your non-FanFiction.net member readers. Personally, I recommend weekly because that gives you enough time to write the chapter, edit it (either yourself or Beta-style), and it keeps your readers around.
STOCKPILE!! If you have a schedule and you have extra chapters, don't just post them because you can. Keep them aside, nice and safe. That way, when you get writer's block, you have a safety net that keeps your readers around and interested. :) Write whenever you can and DEFINITELY as soon as inspiration strikes.
Never worry about the length of a chapter or scene. If the scene is short, let it be short. If the scene takes seven pages, let it. If you try to mess with it, you make silly plot choices and it ruins your story. So don't do it.
Keep suspense. If it seems like you'll lose it by a particular plot choice, then don't do it. Easy as pie. Or a... Never mind.
Cliffhangers are your friends. Your readers will hate you for it, but the bigger the better. :)
Don't just let the villain lose. Fight for them! Give them a magnificent ending! And don't entertain that showy bitter rivalry. A true and intelligent villain hides in the shadows as frontmen do the work and take the fall. A true villain never engages the hero directly. Do not use Hollywood as your role model.
Again- do not use Hollywood as your role model for anything. Video games are a much better idea. In example, Hollywood makes it seem like it's pretty easy to evade the military, right? Run, find a corner, the helicopters won't see you, not that many people, blah blah blah. Okay. Compare to Prototype, where evading the military as a super ninja zombie/human hybrid disease incarnate with all the superpowers of all the Avengers combined can be next to impossible with the game set to Easy difficulty if you aren't careful and do something really and seriously stupid ... ... Hollywood=fail. So just don't.
