Hey welcome to my little college student version of hyperspace...also known as the profile of Heavenly Princess...
so yeah, I'm never really sure what to put in these things...I'm short, I'm a theater geek (and major),
Pet Peeves: Badly written fiction (and yes I do recognize that my own is far from perfect and more often than not part of the badly written genre), Fiction that bashes characters. Slash (shudders) it is not natural for two people of the same gender to date...I'm sorry, but I'm entitled to my own opinion and I am exercising that right. Mary Sues (again shudders) they're just plain annoying. People who have only seen the CoN movies, and claim to be experts...there is no way in the Narnia Universe that a Talking Horse or a Unicorn would be ridden, yes it was in the movie but it was wrong! Suspian romance should die! Lucy's cordial can cure any INJURY, not ANYTHING! Sibling Incest (shudders) not right! Sorry the anal retentiveness comes out with these issues.
I've been noticing a surge of people on this site whose main goal in life is to rip apart the works of others, with out so much as submitting something of their own, and to be as rude and mean about it as possible...my question is, why? Does it not occur to you that maybe, just maybe, the author that you have just raked over the coals has poured their heart and soul into the shreds over which you are now gloating?! I'm not saying that you should tell everyone that their work is "liek teh bomb" but at least have the civility to understand where they are coming from and that they are making themselves very vulnerable only to have you throw their dreams into a dark chasm of razor sharp rocks.
I'm a Christian, I'm proud of it. There will be Christian themes in everything that I write simply because it's who I am...it infiltrates my being. However I will not "preach" unless invited. I'm not the shove my religion down your throat because you HAVE to be a HORRIBLE person if you've never been to church type of person. I hate it when people do it to me, so why would I do it to someone else, thus possibly ruining their tolerance for Christians. If you ask, I will be MORE than happy to tell you what I know. And let me be the first to say, 1. I am not perfect, in fact I'm far from it. I swear, I have a temper, and I'm more stubborn than a mule...but by the Grace of God, I'm working on it. and 2. I don't have all the answers. There are things about God and about the universe that I still question, and some things I'll only have answers for when I'm in heaven...and that's okay.
My friend, Newsgirl Poet, and I have created a group called the Narnia Crusaders of Awesomeness. It is dedicated to good plot, good spelling and grammar, non slash, non incestuous, non mary sue fiction. Come join, it's on yahoo groups, we'd love to have you.
