Author has written 13 stories for Super Smash Brothers, Star Fox, Mario, Metal Gear, Sonic the Hedgehog, Pokémon, and Neopets.
Oh. Hello. I didn't see you there.
Well, I guess I should start saying some stuff about myself, huh?
Okay then, nosy. The name's BAA. Teen writer. Avid gamer. Humor writer. Sarcastic person who craves input. Nuff said.
I've been here since December of 2012 when one of my friends (raining.sprinkles, in case if you were curious,) suggested this site to me when I had tons of ideas for video games...like Sonic, my favorite video game series ever. I mainly write humor/parody stuff, since I find it extremely easy for me to crack a joke or get random...but sometimes I walk out of my comfort zone. Results always vary for better or worse.
I've made friends here and received some awesome advice from very talented, very creative individuals. ...Sadly, though, the creativity lacks sometimes. In the Sonic library alone, there are hundreds upon hundreds of high school AU stories, along with one-shots about Amy's long lost sister and the same ShadAmy plot-line over and freaking over again. I mean, really? Spell Check IS free, being different IS okay, and frankly, no one gives a flying dayum on a stick about your Mary-Sue and how they're best bros with Sonic, along with them being the head captain of underwater basket weaving and getting As in AlchemyMcAlgebravonPhonics class. Honestly.
But there are those glimmers of light, huh? Those stories that just make you wonder about the author's inspiration, what they think about when considering the fandom they're writing about. The innovation and imagination of certain authors I've seen is truly amazing. Care for examples of authors who have truly inspired me to keep writing FanFiction because their ideas are just so insanely awesome?
Look at the Favorite Authors and Favorite Stories lists. I can give direct examples of why all the authors mentioned in the said list are so awesome, but I highly doubt you'd want to picture a frizzy-haired Sonic fangirl weep as she cheesily types in her "remarkable experiences in the Fan of Fiction".
...I might do that later, though...
Subject to change.
Care to know more about me? Ha. Weeeeeeelllll...
Name: BAA. Yup.
Age: OVER 9,000!!! Seriously though, I'm immortal. Bowing is probably your best option at the moment.
Gender: Before you ask, I am a female. What?! A FEMALE writing Sonic fanfics that aren't centered around romance?! WHAT IS THIS MADNESS?!?!?! Yes. Now keep reading.
Habitat: I live at the second star on the right and straight on till morning, which is twelve Parsax away from Corneria which is about an inch or so away from the ARK, which is where I walk my Yoshi.
Physical Appearance: If I told you that I looked like a cross between Zelda, Krystal, Rouge, Daisy, and Samus Aran, would you believe me? I'm a FEMALE, remember. And Zelda is also F-E-M-A-L-E. Don't make the mistake of thinking otherwise. Just. Don't.
Favorite Show: Adventure Time. Did you hear about the goblin who got his left arm and left leg come off? And I just LOVE Regular Show as well.
Least Favorite: Anything on Disney Channel right now. Seriously. "Dog With a Blog"?! WTF?
Favorite Movie: Alice in Wonderland THE ANIMATED ONE! Ha! Threw a monkey-wrench into that one, didn't I?
Least Favorite: Phenomenon. You know, that weird movie with John Travolta? I had to watch it in class and I don't remember much about it. I DID get good at Temple Run though.
Favorite Artists: Coldplay, Crush 40, Cobra Starship, Evanescence, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, and David Guetta.
Least Favorite: Taylor Swift. There, I said it! AUGH!!!
Last Good Song I Heard: Scream and Shout by will.i.am and Britney Spears. The music video is bananas!
Bad Song: I Cry by Flo Rida. I actually liked this song. Then they played it almost ten times within every 48 hours and made my ears go numb. Shame, really.
Favorite Book Series: Harry Potter, Series of Unfortunate Events
Least Favorite: ...Nah. I'm not in the mood getting stabbed and flamed to death by fanboys and girls.
Favorite Book: The Help by...Katherine Simmons, I believe.
Least Favorite: Hmm...I can't remember the name of it. But it was about a stupid, bland girl who was sent to boarding school in I think Vermont where she fell in love with a British vampire whose name was Aiden who was protected by a dancer named Isabella during the 1800s until she got killed by an angry mob. Yep. What a plot-line.
Inspiration: Shigeru Miyamoto, totally. Seriously, when was the last time you thought up Italian plumbers, animorphic (however the fudge you spell that) bounty hunters and Peter-Pan-esque sword wielders? His imagination's a playground!
Anything else you need to know is down below. Take a deep breath before going through it, and Godspeed.
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
How long have you been writing?
Hmm...good question. But if we're talkin' about Fanfics...I think since seventh grade.
What grade are you in?
I already told you. I'm over 9,000. But if you really need to know...I'm in high school, and am old enough to write Fanfics. Start guessing, but you will probably never get the answer for it. EVA.
Can you be my friend?
Well, I'll be there for moral support and whatever, but we won't be hanging out anytime soon, obviously. That and I'd rather not get a PM about how you "can't handle life without Monsieur What's-His-Name anymore". But other then that...I can't say that I hate you...so...sure?
No offense, but no. I was actually in a role-playing guild on Neopets, but I needed a score-card to keep up with it all. That and no one was online whenever I was, so I was pretty much stranded. So, I probably wouldn't even be good at it, and I don't even have any good OC's I could use. So...yeah.
Part of any forums?
Yeah. Two, actually. One's called Quality Supporters, and the other one is called Kelvinania. I tend to lurk through the two forums, and they're both pretty interesting to hang around. Not much left to say besides that.
Why do you always write humor fics?
Well, I don't ALWAYS write them. But frankly, I'm just comfortable with that genre. Usually a humor fic is always pretty good, but when you or the readers can't laugh at it, not matter how technically good the grammar or the plot is, it sucks on ice. But it's fun for me to write them. Once again, nuff said.
Only one. And it's not even a Sonic one. It's a Star Fox one named Odie Swenson, a female engineer from Zoness. (She's in Star Fox: Odyssey). However, I've made a ridiculous amount of OCs long ago, before I even knew what Mary-Sues were. Since I know now, I believe that every single one of those OCs were Mary-Sues. And for those of you who read Speed of Sue, here's a fact: the reason why Purrfect is rainbow is because one OC I made for the then Sonic Legends, Jazz the Porcupine, had rainbow quills, had Sonic for a love interest, and had Sonic get enthralled by her at a first glance. Yes. Yes, really. I'm making fun of my own character development skills from three years ago.
Nope. Too lazy.
How many references have you made in your stories?
whistle* Lots. I've figured out early on that references can help or harm a humor fic, (or even a non-humor one, sometimes,) so the number always increases rapidly. But to list how many references I HAVE made...I've made references to...
Embarrassment and a Terrible Soundtrack: Indiana Jones
Star Fox: Odyssey: Super Mario
Sonic Legends: Cobalt: Super Mario
Sonic's Letters: Super Mario, Mega Man, Final Fantasy, Legend of Zelda, Sly Cooper, Star Fox, Klonoa, Crash Bandicoot
IMAGINATION!: Naruto, Pokemon (Not Mario. You may start breathing now...)
Speed of Sue--A Sonic Parody: Oh...God. Well, let's see...there's Metal Gear, Star Fox, Final Fantasy VII, Pokemon, Legend of Zelda, Jak and Daxter, The Breakfast Club, Tetris, Katamari Damacy, Bleach, The Hunger Games, Wal-Mart, Pizza Hut, Portal, Doctor Who (sorta), My Immortal vocabulary, Super Mario, The Great Gatsby, Harry Potter, Twilight, The Webster's Dictionary, Scribblenauts, and the list will probably keep growing until it's all over...
I Gotz Da DONUTS!: Cubix: Robots For Everyone, Sonic X, 4Kids in general
Where Are We From?: Portal (Wow. What a transition.)
Really, Princess?: Criminal Minds, Sonic the Hedgehog
Meh. That's all I can think of for now. Maybe you can have some mindless fun and try to look for them all...? Maybe...? Have...fun...maybe?
Hi! I'm a stalker!
Anywhere else I can find you at?
Hmm...well, I see you haven't left. Since you ask, though. I'm on Neopets under the name yoshifan272 and on Cartoon Network Games under Hectic Gretel Banjo. I don't go on either one of those anymore, but I do have some of my writing on Neopets that I'll probably post up soon on here to show the world how sucky of a Fanfic writer I was back then. Wanna make fun of it now? Well, go on and knock yourself the hell out. Hope you like exclamation points...
Interesting facts about you?
Well, I'm double-jointed in both of my thumbs along with my left middle finger, I have a pair of Yoshi slippers, I can play Lavender Town and the Encounter Theme from MGS on the piano, and...I can list some more later. Just hoped that this tickled your fancy...
UR REVEW HURT MA FEELINGZ!!!
That wasn't a question. And if I DID hurt your feelings, then sorry, but that surely wasn't my intention. You see, what many authors on this site fail to understand is that when someone gives them constructive criticism or even the slightest bit of advice, the reviewer/s don't hate their story or wish that the author was dead. Rather, they're trying to help the author improve. And if you, (the author), DO improve, (which, if you follow their advice, is incredibly likely), it's rewarding for you because your skills got enhanced, and the reviewer/s because they felt heard. So frankly, get over it. The reviewers are here to help, not hurt. So...need a tissue or something?
January 18th: Feburary...Feber...Fur...next month! Next month is the month of Sonic over at BAA's office! I know that it should be June, when Sonic was created, but I've been having this Writer's Spasm with Sonic stuff lately, (that and I just came from studying for hours and taking stupid exams...grr...)
Anywho, I'll be posting up some Sonic stuff starting on...next month and possibly even that old series I used to write religiously in my "weird" gaming years called Sonic Legends; maybe. But yes, I'll be posting up Sonic stories GALORE! This'll be the first time I'll be doing a "Gaming Month" and may there perhaps be more one-shot Sonic ideas or even later month ideas...if this works out, that is...
January 24th: About this announcement: you know what, forget this announcement. I shouldn't pin the Blue Blur as a "topic of the month" and Sonic Legends may actually become a series with seven or even eight on-going stories instead of one story to squeeze into a month consisting of merely twenty-eight days. However, this does not mean I won't be writing Sonic stuff. So...yeah. Ignore this.
January 21st: Nye Immortal: A Commentary has been removed due to rule violation; I've been trying to move it to devianART, however, it's been kinda hard formatting-wise; the site keeps shutting down on me. It may take a while to get the story back on the interwebs but I will make another announcement when all's well w/the story.
January 26th: Well, I'm actually starting to post up Sonic Legends. The first installment is "Cobalt" and I'm planning to make this into a series. The revising isn't as hard as I thought it would be...I hope you enjoy it! :)
Feb. 1st: Speed of Sue--A Sonic Parody has been published. Also, Sonic Legends has been updated along with Dear Fanfiction. The parody has been pretty fun writing and even more fun to read through; it's about all the cliche stuff I've found in Sonic Fanfics browsing. It's just for laughs and laughs alone; hope you enjoy it!
Plus, I started playing Pheonix Wright: Ace Attorney today. I know I've already been playing too much, since I've been questioning EVERYTHING.
Feb. 12th: Finished playing Pheonix Wright: Ace Attorney! YAY! Granted, I had to stay up till who knows how long for a few nights to do so, but I did it! So, expect some parody after I finish Speed of Sue. Speaking of which, expect an update for Speed of Sue; tonight or tomorrow night, anyway. Also, the 30th chapter of Dear Fanfiction has been posted! WOOT! (I want to get to at least forty.)
Feb. 15th: Changed the name of Dear Fanfiction--Sonic Edition to Sonic's Letters. Different name, same Fanfic. So...yep.
Feb. 22nd: A couple of days ago, I posted up I Gotz Da DONUTS!!! I just forgot to make an announcement. I also reached my goal of 40 letters for Sonic's Letters! And I also updated Speed of Sue and might even update Sonic Legends! Yep! I've been on a roll lately!
Mar. 4th: Finished Sonic's Letters officially. Movin' on and focusing on other things. Oh yeah, and happy March, guys. Happy March. Derp.
Mar. 11th: I wrote Where Are We From? last night...and it's ma 10th Fanfic! YEAYUH!
Mar. 29th: YAY! Spring break!!! Happy spring, guys! I'll be gone for vacay until Wednesday, and I'll probably be doing tons of writing there! (Along with walking down memory lane playing The Legendary Starfy and trying DESPERATELY to beat Sonic CD.) Expect an update for Speed of Sue, maybe some one-shots, and...a new series, maybe...?
Apr. 19th: Hello, everyone! I've updated Speed of Sue...its tenth chapter to be exact! Also, I have a new Fanfic out called "The Brawler Showcase". I won't be working on it as much at the moment, though, since I want to get Speed of Sue done first...which will be soon...
May 18th:Wow. Been almost a month...anyway, I'm beginning to post for a new series of past works called the BAA Vault, where you can look into all of my past writing and just how...interesting it was. This is to show that I [think I] improved over the years of writing. First Entry: Within the Games! (But...read at your own discretion and try not to hurt yourself, will you?)
MA STORYS: (I SPELD DAT RONG RANDUM REDD SQUIGLS OMG YAY)
*- Currently working on...
#-Not finished yet...
Embarrassment and a Terrible Soundtrack (SSB)-First Fanfic, right here. This is actually based on a true experience I had with an amigo/once-upon-a-time BF when playing the game. Let's just say he was Link, I was Falco, and we were going against Pikachu and Jigglypuff. I shan't say anymore, for if I tell you the story, what's the point of reading the ol' Fanfic that I spent one French class writing?
Foxy Buddy (Star Fox)-A parody of the song "Santa Baby" that's about Slippy begging Fox to save him; just in time for the holidays, too. Hate the format, like the rhymes...and apparently this reminds everyone who reads it about how much they hate Slippy. Oh my dear reviewers, I must relate to thee. I refuse to get that guy off him.
#Star Fox: Odyssey (Katamari Damacy! JK ETZ STAR FOX LOL)-Currently on hiatus...and I may delete it and re-write it. The thing's a monster. An oddly-constructed yet point-of-view fueled, nearly 30,000 word long monster. Yet there's an otter in it. Yayz.
Sonic's Letters (...Nah. Not two times in a row.)- My most reviewed story by a mile, and one of the most reviewed Sonic the Hedgehog stories on FanFiction at the moment. This involved a title change, a deletion from the site, over 12,000 words, letters that took about five minutes to write on average and...other things. It got annoying to write some letters, fun to write others, and they all lived happily ever before and after.
WE'rE WatChInG YOu... (Mario)- Friggin' Poseidon, this story irks me. It bores me so. I really don't like it, for some reason. I tried to take a spin on a weird Mario theory, but I think I failed it. "Aw, you're too hard on yourself, BAA! Here! Have a cookie!" Thanks for the cookie. But still. I hate this story. A lot...grr...
IMAGINATION! (Metal Gear)-I was actually pretty close to never finishing this story: a friendship-is-magic fluffy pillow about Snake and Otacon inside a box. (Get your mind outta the gutter. This is a FRIENDSHIP FanFic. Geez.) But it turns out that this is my favorite story that I've written thus far. And to think...I haven't even played Metal Gear. I think what's made this story so special was when I got one of the best reviews ever that inspired to keep writing on here: a genuinely sweet review (well, two reviews) from a guy named The Flying Lion; a nice guy and friendly author...which is something that this site needs more of. Thanks, man. :)
#Sonic Legends: Cobalt (Fine, fine. Final Fantasy XIII. *trollface*)-I began writing this in the middle of seventh grade, and finished it in the summer before eighth. It was back then that I thought I was the God of Writing. I now scoff at my developing, innocent mind. However, I've been heavily editing it and what-not, but here's the thing: I forgot just how annoyingly ridiculous I was back then, actually putting in Mary-Sues and such. Yet, it can be salvaged. And believe me. I've been trying to do so DESPERATELY...
*Speed of Sue--A Sonic Parody (*groan* You freaking know.)-Kids. Let's get real here. Many of your Sonic FanFics, for quite a few of you, are atrocious. Writing about your re-colors, your Mary-Sues, and your "cleverly-made" OCs being BFFs with the Sonic Team in high school, along with desperately making your fav pairings shine through the FanFic that blinds everything else in the FanFic that has poor grammar and detail where it's not supposed to be while hoping everyone thinks it's so "kawaii" and you'll get as many reviews as you can. Yet, whenever you DO get a constructive review, you find it necessary to call this critic a "flamer" and perhaps even literally flame THEIR stories, along with blocking them after leaving a very strong PM with some choice words. Harsh? Yeah it is. But frankly, I as a Sonic fan am sick of the repeating high school love fest over and over again along with how some authors expect nothing but praise to go along with their Sonic FanFics, and I absolutely know I'm not the only one out there who can say that. So, I wrote this to express my several problems with some Sonic stories I run into more often than I should, in the hopes that some can find it humorous and even educational, teaching some what NOT to do when writing a Sonic FanFic. Read at your own discretion, for I hope you aren't expecting sensuality. Now that the rambling's over...
I Gotz Da DONUTS! (Pokemon)-I used to watch the anime a lot when I was younger. Then that stupid green-haired kid who made a bunch of cooking references came in and made me facepalm whenever he brought up trains. Anywho, 4Kids was so ridiculously awful when dubbing Pokemon, I decided to write this to show my...feelings towards their...excellent work. Just read it. I'd rather not see a hole in this screen.
Where Are We From? (SSB)-One of those times where an awkward idea hits you: having a teen explain to a nine-year-old where babies come from. So many Portal references. Gotta read 'em all.
#The Brawler Showcase (SSB...AGAIN...)-I won't be working more on this until Speed of Sue is done, but I can't wait until I get back on it. My mind's flowing with ideas for it. Flowing I tell you. Get. Stoked.
Really, Princess? (Mario)-A poem based on Mario's absolute frustration when it comes to saving the Princess. That poor, poor Italian plumber guy.
ABOUT THE POLL...
I saw this video on YouTube recently called "Top 25 Urban Legends in Gaming" that talked about "supernatural encounters" in the gaming world. I got interested, so I decided to check out some stuff on Creepypasta (Oh man, that place nearly gave me nightmares about games as cute as SCRIBBLENAUTS!). I'm still quite fascinated by it and I'm even currently writing a story about Beyond Hell Valley. I mayhaps even write more about urban legends in the future...whadda you think?
POLL RESULTS: You guys voted, and it was a three-way tie! With two votes a pop, the winners were the Tails Doll curse from Sonic R, Sonic.exe, and Beyond Hell Valley from Super Mario Galaxy! Runner ups with 1 vote are the Lavender Town Tune from Pokemon Red, the 13th Hotel from Hotel Mario, and BEN DROWNED from Majora's Mask!
Thanks for voting, and please vote in my new poll! Like Speed of Sue? Let me know via poll, please! :)

Grrr...I'll be honest. I HATE romance. Have I read good romance FanFics? Yeah. Sure. But this site, with EVERY SINGLE FANDOM, is JAM. PACKED with romance. *groan* Yet like every other fan of a fandom, I ship characters...yet I hate most romance-based stuff. How much sense does that make, I ask you? I'll list as many as I can for the sake of "the more you know" factor.
Learning more about a deranged teen writer/gamer! YAY!
So...favorite/least favorite pairings? Oh boy...let the sharpening of the pitchforks begin...
Shadow/Rouge- This pairing just feels right. It's dark, edgy, and considering the sarcasm of Shadow AND Rouge, there wouldn't even be much "serious" romance. And pairing my two favorite Sonic characters ever? Why the freaking hockey stick not?!
Sonic/Amy- *sigh* Do I like this pairing? Yeah. Sure. But this pairing is written about TO DEATH. And it's not fair that Sally Acorn has to become some snooty donk because of it. I also ship Sonic/Sally too, but probably not as much as Sonic/Amy. *shrug* I like the game storyline WAAAAAY better.
Tails/Amy- Oh, how I love trolling. But seriously, though. I can actually see it work. Is it just me? ...Yeah. Probably. Just don't hold that 40 Caliber too close to my head, 'K?
Tails/Cream- D'AWWWWWWWW!!!!!! Nuff said.
Knuckles/Shade- Though I detest the only game Shade is in, I liked the chemistry she and Knuckles had in Sonic Chronicles. That and marrying "the last of your kind" is an entertaining thought. *thinks of Julie-Su* Oh wait.
Espio/Wave- Yeah, I'm all alone on this one. It would be groovy to find another fan of this pairing out there, but it's unlikely. But think about this: they're both purple, are around the same height, are the smartest on their teams, are good with computers, are pretty serious about what they do, and are even around the same age! Come on! Espiave! Who's with me? *crickets chirp*
Silver/Blaze- They don't know each other anymore, but the chemistry they have in Sonic '06 (albeit, a stupid game with an even worse plot-line,) was gorgeous. Besides, it was one of the first pairings I've ever shipped. Hatin' on this couple? For me..."It's no use!" (You saw that coming. Admit it.)
Charmy/Marine- Being annoying together. What could go wrong? That's right. Everything! Chaos and destruction to all when these little twerps frolic hand in hand! YIPEE! I'M USING ALL-CAPS EVERYWHERE!!!
Luigi/Daisy- The first Mario pairing I ever loved. Just stare at the statues at the Daisy Circuit in Mario Kart Wii for ten seconds. Then try to look at my profile in the screen and tell it that these two right here aren't adorable together.
Mario/Peach- I'm not talking about this. All I'm gonna say is that Mario should get at least something besides cake and a peck on the nose for saving Peach all the time. Speaking of Peach getting kidnapped constantly...
Peach/Bowser- Opposites attract gone right. Bowser obviously knows that he'll fail every time he kidnaps Peach, but he STILL tries to go the distance: crossing dimensions, making black holes in the center of the universe, forcing his son to hide in cakes only to jump out and kidnap the blondie. That determination oughta get him something. ...Boy, don't you just love contradictions?
Waluigi/Rosalina- Same...height? Um...I like them in Mario Kart? Um...I...uh... ... ... ... uh...
Yoshi/Birdo- *sigh* Birdo's a male. I know. Don't remind me. I just want to keep that last shred of innocence I still hold dear...
Wario/Mona- Under-aged? Yes. But I picture this like a Sonic/Amy relationship: Mona could be Wario's fangirl as Wario wants to just slowly push her away. Or is Mona considered Wario's fangirl anyway? Hmm...
Fox/Krystal- I love them as a couple, really. I just don't like it when this is all many Star Fox writers write about. It's just the same deal with some Sonic writers and Sonic/Amy. And also with Sonic/Amy, I've seen some good FanFics with these two in uncontrollable love, but sometimes, it's a little...much.
Falco/Katt- Ah! I just LOVE it when two smart allics get together! And it's always nice to see FanFics out there talking about how these two met, why they like each other, their friendship, etc. Just...gah, I love these two!
Slippy/Lucy- Yep. I don't like Slippy with Amanda. It just simply doesn't feel at all right for some reason...don't ask why. Either Slippy gets with Lucy or he's forever alone. And if Lucy can't get with Slippy...
Lucy/ROB- No, not the Wall-E look-a-like. I think that these two would be cute. Sorta. I mean, it sounds like ROB liked Lucy in Star Fox Command, so...?
ANYTHING ELSE? (RANDOM PAIRINGS FROM RANDOM GAMES):
Link/Zelda- If I say otherwise, a Zelda fangirl/my BFFAEAE would find the Master Sword herself and murder me by dawn. With the sword. S-See? See, buddy? These two are on here! Yeah! Now d-don't get riled up now! Put the sword down! Good girl...good girl...
Snake/Samus- I have no idea what the age range is, nor do I really care. They can...no, they SHOULD be bad-ass together. But I suck when playing as Samus yet love playing as Snake. Speaking of Snake...
Otacon/Mei Ling- Poor Otacon. I haven't played any of the games, and even I know that his luck with females that he cares about sucks deeply. He really needs to settle down with someone. So, why not settle with one who has the same type of intellect and has been around in Metal Gear Solid as long as he has? From what I've seen, these two would be pretty cool together, but like I said: I haven't played the games...so this certain opinion may be invalid to some out there.
Lotta/Gumshoe- Crack pairings from Ace Attorney FTW!!! No reasons why I think this would work. Just needed to throw in a crack pairing somewhere.
ANY LEAST FAVORITES?
I'm rather indifferent about all the other pairings out there, really. However, there are some that make me roll my eyes, clench my fists, facepalm, or just make me feel...angry. I won't list them all, but allow me to just list a few before my screen gets a hole in it...
Shadow/Amy- In my opinion, this is by a mile the WORST Sonic pairing ever. Remember what I said about Peach/Bowser and how well opposites attract? Well, this pairing is the absolute opposite. They've only talked twice, people. One time was Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, where Amy reminded Shadow of how he promised Maria that he would protect humanity. "OMG AMY EZ LYKE MARIA!11111 SHADO & AMY EZ MENT 4 EACH OTHA!111" Boo. It was a touchy feely paragraph in Comic Sans. Whoop de freakin' doo. That and in almost every single ShadAmy fic out there, Amy get abused by Sonic and Shadow helps her, which gets Amy to completely forget about Sonic. That would never happen. EVER.
Tails/Cosmo- Guys! Cosmo is dead! Get a hold of yourselves! She was even annoying in Sonic X, and when she died, even in the Japanese version, I really couldn't care less. I've read an awesome FanFic once that involved Tails committing suicide because of the death of Cosmo, but again: she. Is. Dead. Sorry. Let's just leave her in that seed, 'K?
Knuckles/Tikal- Same deal above. Tikal is dead. (In heaven with Chaos. Same diff.) I don't get what the big deal about her is. Rinse and repeat.
...Wow. That's about it. But I still wanna smash something...
I don't like yaoi/yuri much. Sorry. I've been trying to get into it, though, for the sake of reading something different. It's worked or it hasn't. It just gets annoying whenever one looks up "Sonic and Shadow" on the Internet, they'll be greeted with the two hedgehogs having an angsty make-out session. I don't have any specific pairings; if I like it, I like it, but I probably wouldn't read it anyway...so...yeah.
VIDEO GAME MUSIC:
Overall Favorite Video Game Song: I Am...All of Me by Crush 40. THAT SONG'S MY JAM!!!
Favorite Vocal Song: Still Alive from Portal. How, just HOW can you NOT like that song?!
Favorite Tune: Song of Storms from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Gotta make it rain.
Least Favorite: Um...get back to me on that one.
INSPIRATION PLAYLIST: Songs
There are just some songs out there that get my creative juices flowing when writing me Fanfics or getting through school days or even doing chores and walking my dog through the neighborhood. Here are some songs that I can just play over and over again in the name of dreams and IMAGINATION...
Knight of the Wind, I Am...All of Me, Open Your Heart, Live and Learn and All Hail Shadow by Crush 40. Garsh, I just ADORE them. Nuff. Said.
Snake Eater from Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. -Just another reason why I desperately wanna play ANY Metal Gear Solid game. This song is simply beautiful and beyond words.
Dr. Mario WITH LYRICS, Legend of Zelda WITH LYRICS, Space Oddity, Ghosts n' Goblins WITH LYRICS, and Classic End Credits WITH LYRICS by brentalfloss. Are these songs little kid friendly? No. Will they make you laugh hysterically? Heck to the yeah.
Mitt Romney vs. Barack Obama by Epic Rap Battles. My favorite rap in the series, too. The dude in the video sounds and looks almost EXACTLY like Obama. Whoa...
These are just more like parody/gaming songs. Don't even get me STARTED on real-world songs. Just...don't.
INSPIRATION PLAYLIST: Videos
And if I care to numb my mind, I just mozie on over to the Tube of You and check out some let's plays, hilarious gaming videos, and whatever else.
Favorite You-Tubers (In no particular order): Peanut Butter Gamer (We both share the same disdain for My Sims. XD), brentalfloss, Some Ordinary Gamers, Fawful's Minion, peanut3243, joshscorcher, Machinima (Steve and Larson are the videos I accept more than any other videos they make...), and the Sonic Paradox Team.
BEST/WORST VIDEO GAMES
Favorite Video Game: Super Mario Galaxy; already said. Yup. Star Fox 64 and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 are pretty awesome too.
Least Favorite: Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. Sorry, but Sonic's just not meant to be an RPG. Why does he need a speed ramp to run through a loop-de-loop anyway? He's freaking Sonic, for Pete's sake!
Preferred characters to be on Brawl: SONIC, anyone from Star Fox, Ness, Lucas, Lucario, Luigi, and perhaps Zelda...perhaps.
Stay away from...: Jigglypuff, Jigglypuff, Jigglypuff, Jigglypuff, Jigglypuff, Jigglypuff and Olimar.
Playable characters I'd LOVE to see in the next SSB game: Shadow the Hedgehog (Nintendo, I'd love you FOREVER...not like I don't already do, but you know), Tails the Fox, Knuckles the Echidna, Krystal, Waluigi, Daisy (then the Super Mario roster would be complete!), and...Eggman, anyone?
Assist characters I'd LOVE to see in the next SSB game: Leon and Panther (Star Wolf has joined the...game!), Rouge the Bat, Metal Sonic, Koopas and Goombas in general, King Boo, and maybe even Pac-Man! (...What?)
...Holy, God! You READ all that?! Dude! Are you okay? You need, like, a glass of water or something?
I tend to put up anything and everything I write fandom-related whenever I can, and I would really appreciate it if you may review my work, whether you want to give it praise, criticism, and everything in between. I'd really love to hear (well, read) what you guys have to say; reviews are the equivalence of love with gratitude in return on FanFiction, after all.
Thanks for stopping by, you curious lil' web surfer, you!
