Hi there and welcome to my profile:)
I dont know how many people actually read these things, but for those who do, heres a little bit about myself and some tips for those searching new stuff to read (just scroll down for that) and please check out the fanart people drew of the stories! :D
Contacting me: PMs work usually.
Physical appearance: long blonde hair, green eyes and teeth still intact...
Pets: none besides dustbunnies
Visited fandoms: Sonic the Hedgehog mostly, Doctor Who, Zelda, occasionally YGO, Harry Potter or Discworld, Detective Conan, Magic Kaito - and now Supernatural, Sherlock, Welcome to Night Vale and Good Omens. Tumbler has swallowed me whole...
Favourite genres: Humour/parody, action-adventure, drama and...possibly just that little bit of slash :p
What Im looking for: Currently its a well-written adaption of any Sonic game for either the Gameboy Advance or DS.
What's your goal in fanfiction? I am trying to write for every genre at least once.
Genres covered so far:
Drama - Life Could Have Been so Different
Humour - Sonic Drabble Trouble!
Parody - Wikipedia: Hedgehogs
Horror - So Deep the Shadows, So Dark the Night
Crossover - Tales of Shadows
Fantasy - Sing for Me
Romance - Once upon a Time
Mystery - During the Night
Spiritual - Last Story
Adventure - Burning Arrow, Wildfire Heart
Friendship - Birthday Girl
AU - Five Things That Never Happened
Family - Easter in SPACE!
Slash - Once Upon a Time
Poetry - Sonic Drabble Trouble! (Chapter 4. You may scream, if you wish.)
Songfic - A Christmas Carol
SelfInsert - Fanfic 101
Sci-Fi - Hedgehogs and Relative Chaos In Time
Supernatural - Bring Me The Head Of Prince Charming
Hurt/Comfort - Sometimes
Genres that will be up next/ soon:
Suspense - Working on it, working on it...
Genres that will drive me up the wall numerous times until I have come up with a story for them:
Crime: (Planned Title: How Both Sonic And Shadow Fell In Love With My Beautiful, Female OC. Now if you dont think that is already a crime against decent fanfiction all by itself, wait until I tell you about her reality-warping, grammar-ruining superpowers! )
Angst (the genre I hate the most. But I do have an idea about what I could write without it being clichéd)
Tragedy: (then again, I could always write an essay about my driving skills and post it, if I was desperate)
Western: (WTH?! Im a Sonic writer, what on earth am I supposed to write in this genre?! @.@)
So theres my plan for the future - all in the cause of improving my writing skills and entertaining you along the way. If you want to tell me which genre I did best so far, please go right ahead. :)
Who's your favourite character?
Sonic! :D Shadow a close second, with Knuckles and Blaze coming in third. Tails probably ranks fourth - chances are, if a character is powerful or smart, I'll like'em.
Huh, knew that question was coming. XD Well, basically, I like any pairing where two very powerful and headstrong characters are paired together, and even better, one of them should be the mischief-maker/natural-born-comedian variety, and the other the saner type, who gets driven up the wall by their significant other. Translated, this means that in Sonic, I like Sonic/Shadow, Sonic/Sally, Sonic/Scourge (though that degenerates into madness usually quite quickly...), Sonic/Blaze, Sonic/Knuckles, (or even rarer: Sonic/Rouge :P) and sometimes Rouge/Knuckles or Shadow/Rouge, they all have quite the fun dynamic.
In other fandoms, you'd find me reading House/Cuddy or House/Wilson, for example, Yami Yuugi/Yami Bakura (though it's hard to tell *who* the saner is of the two...), Doctor/Master, Shinichi/Kaito, Kaito/Hakuba...you get the drift. Mostly I don't even care whether it's slash or friendship, as long as the banter is there and the plot is original. ;) I don't hate 'tamer' pairings like Sonic/Amy, Tails/Cosmo (or Cream) or Shadow/Amy, I usually just grow bored of them. Nevertheless, most fics of mine will have some amount of Sonamy, because it's canon. :P
Why do you write?
I started because I usually didnt like the (unhappy) endings of books, so I wrote alternate solutions. Later, I discovered that writing was actually what I was best at at school and so I began to improve it. I also love to entertain people and thats probably why my humour/ parody stories are so far the most popular on my profile. You will only rarely find a fic of mine where there are not at least some gags stuffed into a corner somewhere.
When I discovered this site, I was overwhelmed and usually still no week goes by without me being stunned by what people will come up with. And Im not just referring to mpreg. Geez, that weirded me out...@.@ Soon after collecting some favourite authors and stories, I started to write in English myself. I mentioned this before, I think, but I guess it should rather be on the profile - English is not my first language, so if you find any mistakes, please point them out. Now I find that writing improves ones active vocabulary greatly and there's also a lot of cultural stuff to learn, if youre not living in an English-speaking country.
I also try to give constructive criticism when I review, but can become somewhat...testy...when a fic has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. However, I still try to never flame. Update: Well, almost never. But theres only so much character rape even I can tolerate.
How do you develop your stories?
The Plot Bunny visits me late at night and hides ideas in my head. Hence the beautiful shady valleys beneath my eyes each morning.
Which fic do you want to plug shamelessly? Life could have been so different. If you really want to make my day, please give it a review, friendly or not.
Why do you hate Tails so much?
I don't hate him. Honest. He's one of my fave characters, actually - but there's just something about him that screams 'I'm cuter when I'm miserable!'. Can I help it? :D
It still amazes me, but there are actually people out there who want me to write more, and faster. Well, I usually try to update at least one story every week or two. (Okay, sometimes it's more like one update in two or three months, admittedly, but what you get for waiting is quality fic. ;) One thing I can promise is that once I start a story, I will finish it. Whenever theres a first chapter online, Ill have the plot already sketched out, so no worries there.
I try to keep updates fairly regular, evenly distributed in between 'Shadow the Hedgehog: First Class', 'Burning Arrow, Wildfire Heart' 'Advent of Equinox' and whatever Sonic crossover I'm currently working on, 'Wikipedia: Hedgehogs' taking longer. In between, I can promise lots of one-shots, fluff, songfics, seasonal stuff and drabbles to keep you entertained. 'Advent of Equinox' is being co-written with Skyblaze, so if you wanna read more of that one, I suggest shooting her a PM as well. ;) Happy reading!
When are you gonna update Wikipedia: Hedgehogs?
When are you gonna update Wikipedia: Hedgehogs?
I said, see above. Sporadic. Not very often. And it WILL be continued and finished.
When are you gonna update - (gunshot sound)
(twitches) Guys. I am working on it. It's not an easy fic because expectations are high. I still try not to be like other authors that let me down by suddenly not continuing anymore. (Just look at most of my fav author list, for instance). Therefore, PLEASE don't PM me anymore asking for that Wikipedia fic. Que sera, sera. As of now, these will probably the only PMs sent to me that will go unanswered. /rant.
Tales of Shadows: My planned next epic. Semi-AU, future Mobius. Miles 'Tails' Prower is all alone save for his friend Cream, and has to fight off bullies, green hedgehogs, gang leaders and blackmailers, all of them threatening him or his uncle Merlin. Thankfully, he manages to repair a pair of mysterious ancient hoverskates and suddenly, his life seems to have taken quite the interesting turn...(Chance to be continued: 90 percent)
Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games: Since you were all so fond of my SatsR adaption, I have already been thinking about another one...probably to be uploaded alongside Tales of Shadows. Princess Sally and the President of the United Nations get note from the Mushroom Kingdom that the first Interuniversal Games are planned and take place soon, but where can you find a bunch of athletes that are prepared to go for gold without any training beforehand...? (Chance to be continued: 30 percent)
Five Sequels That Never Happened: Part 2 of 'Five Things'. Sonic is learning to run after he has been crippled since birth. Miles 'Kitsune' Prower, Prince of thieves and apprentice of Rouge goes on a dangerous mission with his teacher. And meanwhile, Amy has to make the decision whether her long sought-after love Knuckles is really worth a lonely life in the sky. But of course, all of these things...never happened. (Chance to be continued: 40 percent)
A Christmas Carol: (Non-Sonic; Charles Dickens parody): There are certain stories that everybody knows. Stories that teach us things about love, life and ourselves. Part of our culture and absolutely vital for the spirit of the season, too. But in a world where imagination failed to develop, there is no author to think them up...so the employees of Highest Heaven Inc. have to act them out! And since the employees are mostly angels and spirits, you can be sure it's not going to be a simple theatre performance...Introducing Tan, newbie and terrified, with his latest assignment to reform some strange old grouch, and he'll need a cushion for his 'Ghost of Christmas Present' costume, too...(Chance to be continued: 80 percent)
Tails of a Samurai (AU): The prologue is up. Basically, my obsession with all things Japanese and Sonic taken to a new, unwholesome level. :P Sonic is a masterless Samurai in feudal pseudo-Japan, who happens to pick up an orphan kit along the way - his (bad?) luck the two-tail turns out to be a magical kitsune, mischief-maker and shape-shifter extraordinaire! Now, while trying to survive in the Era of the Warring States, in between conspiracies, mythical artifacts and lots of familiar faces, Sonic once again has his hands full, but luckily a magical travelling companion also comes in handy sometimes...(Chance to be continued: 50 percent)
Pokémon: Emerald Version! Sonic & Co wind up in a rather strange world due to a Chaos Control gone bad, and immediately find themselves chased by either strange humans obsessed with catching them, or alternatively running from even freakier monsters who apparently are a bit territorial. But when Shadow gets hurt and winds up captured by a rather arrogant boy named Gary, Sonic has no choice but to form a reluctant partnership with his new acquaintance Ash, after a battle with his hyperactive yellow mouse accidentally got a bit out of hand...(Chance to be continued: 40 percent)
If you want to see any of them in particular, just drop me a PM - maybe it'll make me type faster. ;)
Hobbies: Video games, hiking, reading, diving, theatre, writing (duh! XD) and everything Japanese, ranging from learning the goddamn language to trying my luck at karate and sushi - and at least so far I've only hurt people with one of the latter two things...
Books I love: Discworld, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Bartimaeus Trilogy, Sherlock Holmes and Tales of the Otori
Comics/manga I like: Fullmetal Alchemist, Usagi Yojimbo, Yugioh (yes, shut up), Kenshin, Calvin and Hobbes, Black Butler, and everything of the Scrooge McDuck universe by Don Rosa...
TV Shows: Doctor Who, Dr. House (Oh, those doctors...), IT Crowd, Monty Python's Flying Circus, Blackadder, Black Books, Fawlty Towers, Supernatural, Life on Mars, How I Met Your Mother, a bit of Torchwood or Big Bang Theory - generally, if it's got weird or British humour, I'll like it. ;)
Music: Metal, Classic, Irish Folk, (Punk) Rock in particular...but mostly everything's okay. And I'm a closet Crush 40 fangirl, but you probably guessed that. XD
