Author has written 6 stories for Evangelion, and Full Metal Panic.
I'm a 25 year old from Florida.
Currently working on Full Metal Panic fanfiction. I may or may not continue with my work in Evangelion. I'd like to, but I'm having a hard time remembering what exactly I wanted to do with it. Time will tell. Perhaps if I can find a copy of the next chapter that I had completed, but lost when my hard drive crashed.
Perceptives on writing:
My primary focus in writing fan fiction is to characterization and really getting into the "heart" of the character. In other words, not just creating something that acts or talks like a certain character. I believe that if you can do that, you can successfully recreate a canon character.
In fiction, I think that creating an emotion in a reader is possibly the most important thing. The entertainment value of a story is determined by the emotions the reader feels. If a reader feels nothing, the story is usually considered boring and falls flat. If a reader feels what the author intended them to feel, they can be swept up in the illusion of the story, becoming a part of it rather than just observing it.
Structure, spelling, and grammar are all important and should all be observed if at all possible. However, I feel that ultimately it's purpose is to help the story flow without disrupting the experience for the reader. Therefore, I think that certain "errors" are acceptable in the right circumstances to convey a certain emotion in the story. However, sloppy or careless errors can break a reader out of the of the story, destroying whatever effect you're trying to create.
Granted, few people read these profiles, but I felt I should put something here. And since anyone looking at it is most likely interested in fanfiction, I thought it would be better to put my thoughts on writing in rather than my personal interests, which I'm sure no one would be interested in. I may add more as time goes on.
