Author has written 14 stories for Glee, Star Wars, Pokémon, Harry Potter, Twilight, and Spider-Man.
Not much to say. I enjoy reading Fanfics and have finally started writing them :)
Top 5 Favorite Naruto Characters!
Naruto: Favorite character. If I don't like the main character the most then I am probably not going to like the show. He's loyal, outgoing, never gives up, and has a determination that I find admirable. He is able to change the lives of those around him for the better, and really if more people were like that then the world would be a much much better place.
Sakura: Favorite female character. It's not easy being placed on a team with two power houses like Naruto and Sasuke, and while at first she started out weak she has really grow into a strong character, both physically and emotionally. And while it sucks that she might not end up with Naruto at least she has grown to truly care for him. She is easily the most relatable character in the series. She is just an average person thrown into extraordinary circumstances and does the best she can. I think a lot of us would react the same way she does if we were put into her situation. She is definitely the most human of the characters. She is a true heroine, her character has grown rather than stay stagnant like a lot of the other characters. I could rant for ever about how awesome she is, but I'll leave it here.
Shizune: She takes a lot of abuse, does a lot work and gets hardly any credit or recognition... poor Shizune needs more love. T.T
Kushina: A mother's love is a remarkable thing. She gives birth, has the kyuubi ripped from her, helps fight it and protect her son, and still has time to show how much she loves him. Pretty much awesome on a level that's not often seen.
Itachi: Dude had to choose between his family and his village and all he got in return was exile and a brother who hated him despite the fact that he loved him so much that he wanted to live with that hate. Itachi was a true tragic hero and I mourn his death.
Top 5 Hated Naruto Characters!
Hinata: I know you think I'm a bad person, but seriously what has she ever done in the entire series. I don't hate, hate her in the sense that I wish her character would die... mostly, but really she has no personality, she is a stalker, and yet everyone thinks she is this great goddess sent to us from above. You can't make one argument about her usefulness that doesn't involve filler arc crap. I will concede that she helps inspire Naruto in his fight against Neji, but I counter that you could have replaced anyone with Hinata and Naruto would have done the same thing. It was the fact that Neji was abusing and putting down an underdog, and telling them that they would never improve that got him passionate. It was like rehearing everything he had ever heard said about himself that got him riled up, not the fact that it was Hinata. She really doesn't do much until the fight with Pein but even then I think you could substitute any one of Naruto's friends with Hinata and gotten the same result.
Sasuke: The tragedy with Sasuke is that he really could have ended up as one of my favorite characters. He has a deep past, a compelling story, and he was pretty cool. The problem is they never made him a likable character, I could never relate to him the same way I did Naruto, and even though its explained I still don't get why Naruto and Sakura cared for him. He treated them like dirt, and every once in while would condescend to acknowledge their existence. I get the rivalry thing with Naruto in that he was created to be his rival, but it's not pulled off in a way that makes me care about him. He had a lot of potential to be a likable villian the kind that you remember and love to hate but, he ended up as a whiny emo bastard. I don't get worried or excited when he shows up, I become bored and annoyed and wish he would go away. I mourn the loss of his potential.
Madara: Turn the moon into a giant sharingan... really... really... well that's just... wow... okay then, moving on.
Kabuto: Kishimoto just didn't want to get rid of Orochimaru but realized, "Oops! I killed him off what can I do now? Oh, I know I'll turn Kabuto into Orochimaru and make him all scary, that'll work." Yeah... doesn't work for me.
Konohamaru: Same thing with Hinata, he is pretty much useless. They went for someone to be a Naruto 2.0 but instead got a Naruto 2.herp-a-derp. He's like nails on a chalk board to me and the entire Naruto story could be told and not mention him once and still not lose anything that makes it great.
Neither my top 5 favorite or hated is a permanent thing. A compelling argument for or against a character or reread of the manga may change my opinion. Anyways the fun part of these kinds of lists is talking them over with friends and fellow fans.
So my current obsession is Glee. I have found I absolutely adore Faberry and my obsession shows no signs of slowing down.
Hey all, this is the post that I mentioned in chapter 11.
This started off as an author’s note response to a review that I received but I decided that it was a little too long and a little too soap-boxy for an author’s note and so I decided to add it to my profile instead. Some of my readers may not care about what I have to say, and they just want me to shut up and get to the story, so as a courtesy to them I am adding this to my profile instead. So if that means you are reading this, it is by your own volition and you sought it out. This is my feelings about writing fanficition, reading fanfiction, reviewing fanfiction, and guest reviews. The story that this references in particular is my story “The Choices We Make.” A Quintana, Glee fanfiction. However, it is my attitude towards every story I have written and will write.
First of all, and its so cliché to say this, but it holds true, if you don’t like it then don’t read it. Let me get one thing very straight here, I write this story for me, I am writing the story that I want to read and I am sharing it with the rest of you. And I enjoy the feedback and I am also not one of those people who says, well if you haven’t written a story you have no right to comment, because that’s not true. You don’t have to make movies to know if a movie is any good and you don’t have to cook to know if a meals good. The same with fanfics, you don’t have to write them to be able to say whether they are good or not.
First to my guest reviewers in general, I really wish that you would sign in and give me a name to work with. Whether you like my story or hate it, a name allows me to converse with you; it lets me message you back and forth like I have been privileged to be able to do with some of my other readers. But I understand, maybe you have an account and when you read and review you just aren’t in a location to be able to sign in, or maybe you don’t have an account and don’t want one, that’s fine too. Or maybe you're just shy, that's okay too. But it’s a shame because in addition to not being able to converse with you, I also like to check out other people’s profiles and see what they have written or are reading and I find that for me it’s the best way to discover new stories on this sight. I don’t hate guest reviews, and I have received guest reviews that have been very insightful and have brought attention to issues that I hadn’t even thought to consider in my stories and barring extreme circumstances I will never delete a review, good or bad, no matter who sends it, guest reviewer or account holder.
Now to my special “Guest” reviewer, don’t you dare, for even one moment, think you have any idea about where I am going with this story. You aren’t privy to my thoughts or my feelings or any plans that I have for this story. You find out and you know what I am going to do “only” when everyone else does, and that is when I post the chapter and not even a nano-second sooner.
Your message had absolutely no value to helping me as a writer, it was a flame, telling someone that their story is retarded, that they should stop writing, that it is B.S. is not a constructive criticism, it does no one any good, it doesn’t help someone improve as a writer and just shows poor character on your part.
You talk about Santana being tied down and being forced to raise her girlfriend’s baby, first of all Quinn and Santana are friends, not girlfriends, at this point in time. And I would think that if one your friends were in this situation, you would want to help them. But they are not dating at this point and to be honest it will be a long while before it happens. You don’t like how Santana is whipped, well guess what, neither do I, but that is how she is right now until she grows as a character. Santana is subservient to Brittany in this story and that is also why it won’t work out in the end. Santana and Brittany both need to grow and as they grow and come into their own they will grow apart romantically. Santana isn’t trapped into raising Quinn’s baby, or anyone’s baby, because you have no idea what I plan to do where Beth is involved. I may have Quinn keep her, I may have Quinn give her up, hell I’ve even toyed with the idea of killing Beth off during child birth, kind of hard to raise her then, isn’t it? My point is you don’t know. If you don’t like what I’m doing, if you don’t like the type of story this is, then go write your own. And I don’t mean that in a derogatory way. I mean it sincerely, go write the story that you want to read, write a story where Santana is super girl and tells Brittany to fuck off and is her “own person.” Where she flies off to New York, or L.A. or the moon, or wherever and lives her life as you see fit and they interact the way that you want them to. Go write it, that’s why I started this story, I wanted to see a retelling of Glee from the beginning from a Quinn/Santana stand point and I was unable to find one that had everything that I was looking for, so I started writing my own. Nobody is holding a gun to your head, and nobody is forcing you to read my story… I hope not anyway.
And a part of me can’t even believe that I am responding to this, I almost feel like I should just shrug it off and ignore you, but I think that this needs to be said, not only in response to this but to all future people who read and review my story. I am enjoying writing this story, and I am so happy that so many of you are enjoying it, and for those of you who don’t or aren’t enjoying it, I don’t know what you want me to do, because I am going to keep writing, I am going to keep doing things my way and I won’t apologize for it. I said it earlier and I’ll say it again, and I will keep repeating it. I am writing the story that I want to read, that happens the way that I want it to, and if people like it great, and if people hate it, like you seem to, well that’s too bad. Don’t read it.
And if someone has a legitimate complaint like, I don’t think that what happened is realistic this would probably happen instead, or your spelling needs a serious over hall, or I’ve actually gone through something similar and this is actually how it works, or something else that actually helps to contribute to the story, please let me know. But saying, and I am quoting here “That is so much b* it’s retarded. Stop writing.” What good does that do anyone, how does that help improve the writing or the story? It doesn’t, and I’ll say it once again, none of you have any idea where I am taking this story, or what I am going to do to the characters. There is only one person in the entire world besides myself who has even an inkling as to what is going to happen in my story and I promise you, whoever is reading this, you are not that person.
So that’s kind of my feelings about fanficton. We are all here because we love these stories and these characters. They touch our lives in some way or another and we get passionate about them. And that’s okay, what’s not okay is to tear down someone who may not enjoy or may not do the same things that you do. For the most part my experiences on this sight have been positive, and I am grateful for that, however that isn’t always the case for other people and that’s a shame, because we are all here to enjoy and share our love of our fandom with each other. A little more kindness, a little more understanding, and a little more respect in general would go a long way.
So there you have it, I am done and I will step down from my soap-box and stop my preaching.
