Poll: What should I parody in my next crackfic? Vote Now!
Author has written 8 stories for Anime X-overs, Yu-Gi-Oh, Teen Titans, Pokémon, Harry Potter, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Twilight.
This quote I found on Wiki amused me.
Fanfiction is what literature might look like if it were reinvented from scratch after a nuclear apocalypse by a band of brilliant pop-culture junkies trapped in a sealed bunker. They don't do it for money. That's not what it's about. The writers write it and put it up online just for the satisfaction. They're fans, but they're not silent, couchbound consumers of media. The culture talks to them, and they talk back to the culture in its own language.

ALSO I AM ON TEH TUMBLS
I'm just your average, boring business grad student with an overactive imagination who lets out all her crazy in the form of crack fiction and chibi doodles.

Blood Type: Coffee
Hair Color: Brown

Height: Shorter than Ed
Likes: Dishwashing detergent

I...completely forgot I had an account on this thing.
Anyway, I call myself Nimrochan, and I used to write what I like to call "crack-fanfiction" in high school whenever I was bored. Now, I'm reaching college graduation, and I have far better things I should be doing.
But writing crack-fics is too much fun 8D
I realized I should probably put more information about myself.
UM...Boy I'm terrible at this... I live in the U.S in a hot place where there's not much to do. Well there's the beach but I'm pale as an albino monitor lizard (hence general avoidance of the sun, though I do go on occasion when I have 8 gallons of sunscreen on hand). I have also lived in Israel and Japan (random, much?)
I hate snow
I'm a full-blown nerd; I prefer watching hours of anime to pretty much anything else (though recently I've discovered the awesomeness of Star Trek. But I like other shows too). I also like reading. I'm too lazy to list all the shows, movies, anime, and books that I like but they're all really good.
I despise Twilight with every fiber of my being.
And yes, I read it (I had no choice- it was an 11 hour flight and I had finished my other book. Just to illustrate, that other book was "Memoirs of a Geisha." Imagine eating cookie dough cheesecake of the finest quality, and then eating a fish that's been lying dead in the sun for three days. That's what it felt like to read those two books in a row like that.)
I also hate it when people insist on showing me youtube videos of cats. For some reason I've met an alarming number of people who do this to me.
(Example: "OMG I have to show you this clip of a cat getting stuck in a cereal box it's like SO FUNNY"- *gets shot in the head by me*)
But I will admit that I love videos of turtles eating for some reason...
And finally, the thing I hate the most, more so than snow, Twilight, and cat videos combined, is reality television. More specifically, shows involving cameras following bitchy rich women around. I can't even find ways to make fun of reality television. It's just...nothingness.
Anyway, I also enjoy swimming (on cloudy days), writing (normally I work in secret on my own original stuff, but I've recently floated back here due to my obsession with FMA and ideas for its crackfic parody xD), and drawing (I've been drawing for about five years but so far can only draw chibis. Which I'm very good at). I can also speak beginner/intermediate Hebrew and Japanese.
My parents divorced when I was very young. I think that's why I love cartoons so much.
In real life I'm actually much more shy and quiet than I am on the Internet. I guess I like the anonymity of it. But I do try to always be nice, be it on the Internet or real life. Additionally, I'm a very lazy, do-it-tomorrow kind of person. I mean, it will get done. Just not today.
I am also a hypochondriac. That is why I swore off Webmd and watching "House." I'm quite happy with that decision.
Like many people, I love animals. Except for hamsters, they creep me out. At one point I had considered being a vet, but the idea was dismissed after remembering how lazy I am with intense studies.
Crackfiction and chibis are my only talents. I suppose my original writing is good too, but I can't really know since I don't generally let people read any of it *self-conscious*
My dreams are very big and include many things. I like traveling a lot, so maybe I'll get into international business and continue to learn languages. On the other hand, I like creating things and entertaining people, so I'd also like to maybe be a producer or writer and get into movies/TV shows. I've also considered being a plumber at one point (I have many good reasons for this: little job competition, good pay, people will always need plumbers hence there will always be work, I enjoy fixing things, Mario is a plumber, etc.) My ultimate dream is to be a mangaka (manga artist), but lack of professional drawing abilities, lack of fluency in Japanese, and being lazy in general would probably hinder that. Hey I'm a realist, what can I say.
On a final note here, I don't like the idea of "conformity vs. nonconformity." I think people are too obsessed with it. If you do things because you "hate what everyone else is into" or you "don't want to be cookie-cutter," then in the end you're letting conformity define you anyway. Just be yourself. If you want to be a goth, fine. If you see your friends doing it and you decide on your own that you like it, also fine. But if you're only doing it to annoy your parents, then you're just using it.
I like what I like, and that's that. I like anime, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Monty Python, and other general nerdy things. But I also like being a girl- I like dresses and nail polish, and feeling like my hair looks presentable (I am in a constant battle with it. It is a living entity trying to consume my head, my face, everything. It is that Greek beast Hydra, which grows more ferocious the more I cut it, ever changing and mutating of its own free will. /end rant). I also like rap THERE I SAID IT because I feel like lately it's gotten better than most of the pop/rock stuff out there. In the end, just like what you like. Moreover, allowing yourself to pick and choose from a larger variety of interests makes you all the more complex _
I'll eventually post up a link to a website with the chibis...I have a domain name and nothing else. I don't know anything about creating websites so if anyone else here can help me take the next step it would be greatly appreciated _''
Also, I'll eventually post links to websites with pictures from Israel and Japan. They're awesomeness 3

THINGS THAT INSPIRE MY CRACK WRITING
As you may know, I love writing humor. I especially enjoy parodying stories I love, and completely messing with the characters while destroying what made those stories great. It amuses me.
I suck at writing anything else, especially romance and horror. All the same things can make one swoon or be terrified or sad, etc., hence it's hard to make certain things fresh/new, in my opinion anyway. On the other hand, there are a million and five things out there that can be funny. These following things inspire me (I try to pick from a wide variety of inspiration):
Seinfeld (it's old yes, but it has some pretty decent dysfunction)
Curb Your Enthusiasm (same dysfunction as Seinfeld but it's more vulgar. Which I'm totally okay with)
Married with Children
Malcolm in the Middle
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Harold and Kumar
Eurotrip (it's actually WAAYYY funnier than you'd think)
Rat Race (because Mr. Bean was in it)
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series (that counts as British, right?)
Oh where to begin. All that weird, surreal, slapstick humor found in anime…xD
I guess my biggest inspiration here is Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, which I'm fairly certain was made by force-feeding acid to the characters and setting all the story boards on fire.
(EDIT and also Excel Saga and Gintama. I only started watching those but yeah. Epic.)
STUFF IN THE WORKS:
I'm currently working on some experimental crack parodies:
1) A Samurai Champloo parody, in which the the trio searches for "the man who smells of Glade," with Jin and Mugen escaping from amusingly dark pasts.
2) An LOTR parody, in which they must destroy "the one iPhone/iPad."
3) A Naruto parody, in which Naruto is possessed by a great and evil radish.
4) A Harry Potter parody, in which all the characters are bats*t OOC.
5) A Death Note parody, in which Light is just really stupid.
Suggestions welcome! Just don't take offense if I don't end up going with them ''
The Fullmetal Alchemist crack parody takes priority over any other fic, of course. I try to update monthly but sometimes it may take longer due to work and studies.
Anything else I have here was written YEARS ago, and I wasn't as good a writer then (but they still got very decent reviews, and I still like them a whole lot, so feel free to check them out! _)
AND YET MORE AWESOMEY AWESOME STUFF
If anyone enjoyed the Teen Titans fic I wrote a few years ago, please check out this audio book of the first three chapters by Millie a.k.a. Assassinating:
And if you enjoyed that, here's the next three:
She's a very talented voice actress and artist, check out her website:
ALSO- For those who enjoy Fullmetal Lol, here is the first scene done in flipnote animation by strawberries up the butt a.k.a. s.u.u.b:
(aw it's been since taken down... oh well.)
And here's her Flipnote Hatena profile, she has some Vampire Knight and Bleach stuff and others, all done in an awesome style :3
Again, I need help building a website! I have only the domain name! Any help with it welcomed! :D
Also, just throwing it out there...if anyone wants advice on how to choose a college or how to study abroad, shoot me a PM. I'm not an expert, but I've been there. One thing I will share here, since my parents hammered it into my head and, luckily, I listened... Money is important. To be over $60,000 in student debt by the time one is 22 years old is just tragic, I don't know how tuition can be so expensive... Fortunately I avoided going to THAT school *phew* So yeah.
"Now… If you trust in yourself… And believe in your dreams… And follow your star… You’ll still get beaten by people who spent their time working hard and learning things and weren’t so lazy."
