Author has written 40 stories for Ninja Turtles, Transformers/Beast Wars, and DuckTales.
November 19, 2008. Wow, long time between updates. Or fics hangs head in shame (Or even visits to this site. I haven't been here literally for months, and everything's changed!) I'm trying, I really am. I just have so many other tedious but important things to do. Anyway.
One thing I have managed is my Enchanted Kingdom Horses site. Come and have a look:
I'll try to be good and finish a fic just as soon as I can. Promise! Thanks again to everyone who's still reading my previous fics and reviewing! I love reviews, love 'em!!
Updating again, as of 1 October 2007. Just so you know I'm still kicking. And still writing. Trying to. (It can be like PULLING TEETH at times I swear!! DAMN WRITER'S BLOCK, ALL THE WAY TO HADES!!)
I thought it might be time to update my profile. Ok, first, I'm Australian, and I'm female.
I'm a genuine Child of the 80s (and proud of it) having been born 27 September 1980.
As you can see from my fics, I was deep deep deep into TMNT for a time. (like since I was about 9) I still like it very much, but for 18 months now I have been living and breathing Transformers (G1 ONLY.FIRST TWO SEASONS ONLY)
I loathe Transformers: The Movie, probably for obvious reasons.
I have never seen any other series of TF, except two episodes of Energon, and a few of Cybertron (which I think is fantastic)
Prowl is my absolute favourite TF, followed closely by Jazz. I also like Mirage, Tracks and Bluestreak a LOT. There are no pre-movie G1 characters I actively dislike, actually. I just like certain characters more than others. (Definitely an Autobot fan :)
I love to write, obviously. I also enjoy researching for my own pleasure, such as all aspects of history, genealogy, certain sciences, the supernatural, astronomy,UFOs, animal care, Datsun ZXs (my dream car) plus a lot of other stuff.
I love 80s music, mostly, and some of my favourite shows include: The Simpsons, Futurama, MASH, Knight Rider, Hogan's Heroes, Frasier, Star Trek (Original and Voyager), Smurfs, Ducktales, and plenty of others.
Some things I can't stand are animal cruelty, racism, spiders,reality tv, tv soaps, non-canon characters, Arcee, Daniel, Wheelie and Ultra Magnus ;)
Watch this space! Even though I don't post often, I am ALWAYS working on something. All Transformers at the moment.
NB: I should say I much prefer writing fics to reading them, for various reasons. Also, my TF pieces are not set in any particular time frame or order, except pre-movie, obviously. Each is meant to be read as a whole, without links or ties to any other stories, unless I specifically state so. Enjoy!
UPDATE: (5 October 2006) I HAVE JUST BEEN SENT AN EMAIL BY ANOTHER FF MEMBER, CLAIMING THAT ONE OF MY TRANSFORMERS FICS, ONE THAT HAS BEEN HERE FOR OVER A YEAR NOW, IS TOO SIMILAR TO HIS/HERS. I WANT TO POINT OUT HERE AND NOW, IF THE ABOVE ISN'T CLEAR ENOUGH, I DO NOT READ ANYONE ELSE'S STORIES. I DON'T HAVE THE TIME, I USUALLY DON'T LIKE OTHER PEOPLE'S CHARACTERISATIONS, AND MOST OF ALL, ANYONE WHO HAS REVIEWED ANY OF MY FICS WOULD PROBABLY AGREE THAT I DO NOT NEED TO STEAL ANYONE ELSE'S IDEAS. I AM UPSET AND HURT BY THIS CLAIM. I WRITE PURELY FOR MY OWN ENJOYMENT, AND IF OTHER PEOPLE LIKE MY PIECES TOO, THAT IS A BONUS FOR ME. I HAVE NOT, WILL NOT, AND NEVER WILL, USE ANOTHER PERSON'S IDEAS, SETTINGS, PLOT ETC. IN ALL THE REVIEWS I'VE RECEIVED, NO ONE HAS EVER COMMENTED THAT MY FIC IS SIMILAR TO ANOTHER PERSON'S.
I DON'T BELONG TO ANY FORUM (AND AM NOT ACTIVE IN THE TWO I JOINED PREVIOUSLY PURELY TO FOLLOW UP AN ONLINE COMIC BOOK ORDER) OR ONLINE 'COMMUNITY' AND I DO NOT DISCUSS TRANSFORMERS WITH ANYONE EXCEPT MY FRIEND "CLIFFJUMPER"
I SPEND LITERALLY HOURS AND HOURS A WEEK WORKING ON MY FICS, AND I HAVE NEVER EVER KNOWINGLY AND WILFULLY USED ANOTHER PERSON'S IDEA/S.
I'M EXTREMELY HURT BY THE ACCUSATION. I HAVE BEEN ON FF.NET FOR OVER TWO YEARS NOW AND HAVE NEVER GIVEN OR HAD A SINGLE PROBLEM. IF I AM ACCUSED OF PLAGIARISM AGAIN, I WILL PULL EVERY ONE OF MY FICS AND NEVER POST HERE AGAIN.
TO MY REVIEWERS, I NEED YOUR SUPPORT NOW MORE THAN EVER.
I WILL SAY AGAIN: I DO NOT, DO NOT READ ANYONE ELSE'S FICS APART FROM CLIFFJUMPER'S, HERE OR ANYWHERE ELSE ONLINE.
10 October: Another update. I have had several messages of support over the above accusations, which I sincerely and deeply appreciate. I now have absolutely NO intention of pulling ANY of my fics off this site. I don't want to sound conceited in any way, but it seems I have quite a few fans who enjoy my work. That's fantastic to me. So thanks to EVERYONE who reviews and big double scoop THANK YOUS to the members who sent private messages of support. You know who you are!
I have had the courtesy to not publicly mention the member who accused me, or the fic he/she accused me of stealing his/her "idea and settings" from for mine, but mine has been posted here for nearly 18 months now without any other problems. If I am ever inspired by another person's fic, (Not likely because I will say again: I DON'T READ OTHER PEOPLE'S FICS) I would have the decency to publicly acknowledge it, plus I would contact the author and inform him/her before tearing off and clattering it down.
I also hope no one thinks of me as rude for not reading other fanfics, especially those of the authors who kindly read and review my own, but I'm honest: I just don't usually like them. I'm sorry for that, but it mainly applies to Transformers fics. I used to be right into TMNT, and I read and reviewed quite a few fanfics of that genre. It's different for me concerning TFs. These characters can be viewed so differently by people, and that's the way they'll write them in their fics. My views and opinions are different, so I won't like the way someone else has written the character. I hope I'm making at least some kind of sense here! Anyway that's how I feel and I hope I'm not coming across as a horrible person. I'm really not. Really.
Just one more thing: My short summaries. I have trouble with titles and summaries. I don't like to give the story away in a summary, so most of the time they come out the short way you see under my fics. I know, Earth-shattering news, but I'm determined not to have any secrets here. I love writing. Love it. If I'm not writing, I'm thinking about my fic plots, no matter what I'm doing. And I really do pay attention to reviews. Anyone who has read my first fics on here and my latest will see how I've improved. That's 85 to do with suggestions and tips I've received in reviews. I agonize over every sentence (that's why it takes me so long between posts too) and I love doing it.
Ok, enough from the Purple Aussie! If you made it this far, thanks for reading.
UPDATED UPDATED UPDATE (In case anyone is interested) Chameleon has received over 33,000 hits and I couldn't be happier or more thrilled about it!!
