|The Talentless Hack|
Author has written 33 stories for Fullmetal Alchemist, Inuyasha, Rurouni Kenshin, Cowboy Bebop, and Peacemaker Kurogane.
Hm...what's there to say? I happen to believe the moniker speaks for itself. ; ).
Actually, you may attribute the nom de plume to my friend Christie, who is a righteous bitch and unapologetic ball-buster. She keeps my ego in line, and she badgers me into being less of a lazy ass (so you should totes thank her). She called me a talentless hack as a joke (I hope...)--way back in 2005 or 2006, when I began writing--and because I'm a deeply perverse person, I decided it would be the perfect effeffdotnet pseudonym. And so here we are. Hi there friend. How are you? : )
Interests: Inuyasha, Full Metal Alchemist, Rurouni Kenshin, for now. I have a Bonanza fetish that no one's supposed to know about, and I may indulge it at a later date (you're probably safe, but never say never right?).
Homepage: if you head on over to the ElJay, you can totally find me there (http[backslash]hack001[dot]livejournal[dot]com), and perhaps occasionally be informed of my progress (or lack of the same) on my fanfics. You may, however, have to suffer through a rant...or eight. (This is total bullshit: you will definitely have to suffer through at least eight rants. I apologize in advance.)
Personal Info: I'll be 27 next December, and I live in Florida, land of deluges and hurricanes. I'm also finally a college graduate (Class '08, word), and as of April 2011, I am going back for more learnin': that's right, I'm a Grad Student. I reserve the right to blame any inconsistencies in updating on this--you have been warned. As far as updating itself is concerned, that will depend on how quickly I get through editing.
As you can tell, I don't know when to shut up; expect this penchant in my writing. One more thing: I don't mind constructive criticism. Anonymous flames will be unceremoniously deleted and promptly forgotten; signed flames will be mocked and generally handled with extreme prejudice--let the records show I gave you fair warning.
An all-purpose disclaimer, should I neglect to place one in my stuff (and I probably will, absentminded as I am): I own nothing, not even my soul--that was signed over to the College Board during my sophomore year of high school.
August 30, 2006: In the mood for a good laugh? I direct you to exactly what it's like before every single hurricane. Which makes me laugh until I remember that I live here. Then I just cry., by a personal favorite of mine, Dave Barry. And yes, that's
, as promised in Chapter 38 of Captain Miserable Finds the Greener Grass (just scroll down a tad: it's black and white and basically un-miss-able).
A Long Over-due Note:
The response to "Pieces" continues to amaze me. Sure, I hoped people would like it, but I was not prepared for how many of you actually would. As of this writing (03.27.06), it is on FOURTEEN favorites lists (and counting; people add it to their lists pretty often), has garnered eight reviews, and is a resident of three C2 communities. And all I can say is, but damn people, you sure know how to make a gal feel as talented as Shakespeare (I realize there are people who are going to take issue with this, but whatever, I'm feeling under the weather at the moment--just go with it). So this is just a note to say: you guys are awesome, and I appreciate all of you who've taken the time to review "Pieces" (and my other junk too, but "Pieces" is the one that surprised me the most); everyone who put it on their Favorites list/ C2s; and everyone who's read it and/or re-read it. You guys are the reason I keep posting stuff, and it means a lot to me that you like my stuff at least as much as I do, if not more (kinda doubt that though). Thanks again guys, and keep letting me know if I'm on the right track. : ).
"They're More Like Guidelines, Anyways..."
So. Some of what I've written are series or trilogies, and rather than be found all together, they're on their lonesomes. A few are neighbors, but others are separated by a different 'verse or two, and it can get hairy for some folks to find them. So in an effort to make them more easy to keep track of, I give you...Guidelines! Yay for Guidelines! :D
"Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace" Trilogy:
"And I Dream About Somewhere" (Part One)
"A Smoke Will Fill The Air" (Part Two)
"Stranger Things Have Happened" (Part Three)
"The Office" Series:
"White Day" (Part One)
"Secret Santa" (Part Two)
"New Year's" (Part Three)
"Star Festival" (Part Four)
"Misery Loves Company" (Not technically a series, but a kind of helpful guide to the order these particular--and apparently much-beloved--stories might be read in if you want to be all linear and stuff):
All The Small Things
"Love Is Evol"
Captain Miserable Finds the Greener Grass
"Rurouni Kenshin Sketches" Series:
"Paradox" (Kenshin & Kaoru)
