Author has written 6 stories for Transformers/Beast Wars, Harry Potter, Justice League, X-Men: Evolution, Teen Titans, and Kim Possible.
Yeah, yeah, updated the profile. Wheee.
Been lurking around on FF.net for about a decade now. Yeesh. Makes me feel old.
My own personal beliefs are that, personal. Was raised with very conservative values and am reconciling that with my current viewpoints. It's been interesting.
Been reading far too much and writing too little recently, so with any luck I can start publishing stuff again.
For those interested - yes, I will be updating the HP/TT crossover I started, don't get shirty over it. It will take a while because I knew what I wanted to do but am still puzzling out logistics on how to work everything together. Gah.
I tend to get into new fandoms by reading crossovers into them, so the way I depict many a character will be OOC or using fanon instead of canon. You don't like it, don't read it. Clicking the back button on your browser or quitting out entirely is not that hard people!
Ahem.As for what I read - I will read pretty much anything that has decent writing and a good plot. I cannot tell you how many times I have received a chapter update email from FF.net, gone to the story, realized I have no idea what's going on, gone back to the beginning... and turn away in disgust because the writing was awful and I literally couldn't read more. (This is what happens when I click new links after 1 AM. Nothing good happens after then. Nothing.)
Again, will read pretty much anything, very rarely will I drop a story because I dislike the set pairing. OTPs and BroTPs abound but overall if the story looks interesting enough I'll read. I care a lot more about the character interaction, the plot twists, and the character development than who's dating who in the story.
As for the favorites list... yeah. I need to weed it out. Some of it is from the high school era and really isn't worth reading.
As for advice for other writers... go and read the books in the 'teen classics' section of the library. Or the books from your high school reading list. Or the books from the literature class in college. Because, yes, the soul-sucking plots will make you want chocolate and a happy memory, but the writing? The actual writing in those books is fantastic. You have to THINK about those words and sentence structure. So for those of you who want to be a real writer and are writing fanfiction to get writing practice in? GO READ. And emulate. And read your stuff out loud before you publish it, you will catch so many more mistakes.
Those of you who are just writing fanfiction as fluffy stress-relief? Just have fun, and don't be afraid to drop the story if you start to hate it.
Oh and a quick shout out:
'Embers' by Vathara is brilliant, as is anything else written by said author. For those interested, it is a Zuko-centric Avatar: the Last Airbender fic. Go and read if you haven't yet. If you have, feel free to geek with me now that's finished.
