Author has written 4 stories for Powerpuff Girls, Rocket Power, and Nevermore, Kelly Creagh.
Hi! I'm MsButterFingers.
I've loved writing ever since I can remember. Nerdy through and through. Before I joined FF.net, I used to write fanfiction in my free time for myself, and a while ago when Rocket Power was still on the air, I wrote fanfics on the Rocket Power message board on the Nickelodeon message boards. Hah.

My Stories so far...
'Hard To Control Myself'
Show: PPG. Summary: Now that Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup are old enough, they go to a teen club. At first its exciting and fun, but they soon find that there are some unexpected guests. Upon contact with these guests, what will life be like for these heroines?
My feel on it: I loved writing this story. It took up the majority of my time, and I loved it! The further I came along, I came to love the characters even more. I can't believe I finished it! This is the first major story I've finished, ever. I just can't believe it's over! I feel like a parent whose kid just grew up and moved out. D: I'm definitely thinking of a sequel, but it may take a while. EDIT: Check out the sequel, Losing Control!

Show: Rocket Power Summary: With maturation comes change, and the Rocket gang has been through much. How much different are their lives six years after we last saw them? And how do they handle the change? "But I can't spell it out for you. No, it's never gonna be that simple."
Status: (Edit 7/1/2015): Complete!
My feel on it: I got this idea way back in 2007, and I wrote the draft for the first chapter back then. I found it again this year when I was on one of the last chapters for Hard to Control Myself, and I decided to revise it and make it better. After revising, I re-discovered how much I loved the plot I planned in my head. The characters really speak to me, and I like the change from the more fantasy feel of Hard to Control Myself (as much as I loved writing those parts!) to a more everyday setting. And even though I'm not very far through yet, I'm excited about where this story is going! :D (Edit 7/1/2015): The story is now completed, and I'm very, VERY satisfied with how it turned out overall. Getting to write a story through (mostly) the point of view of one of my favorite cartoon characters of all time, Twister Rodriguez, was a great experience. It was also my first story ever where my protagonist was a guy, and it was super fun (and sometimes challenging). This story will always have a very special place in my heart, just like Rocket Power will.
If you're curious and want a spoilery look inside my head to see my process of writing this story, take a look at my LJ.
Show: Teen Titans. Summary: Especially after the incident with her father for the first time, Raven feels nobody accepts her...except the Titans, whom she calls her family. But what would happen if her 'family' split apart...forever? HIATUS/DELETED.
My feel on it: I've never written a story like this before, or one with such a complicated plot for that matter. Don't worry, its not confusing, it just takes a while to write for me...However, I love the plot and the characters in it, and I'm glad I'm writing this one. It might be on hiatus for the moment, because it's difficult to write two different stories at the same time. Don't worry, though, I'm not getting rid of it. Just taking a break. EDIT: It's been years now since I've written for this story, and tbh I've sort of lost the passion for it. I'm not sure if I'll ever finish it. I've now deleted it. I'm very sorry to those of you that liked it.
'Losing Control' (Hard to Control Myself Sequel/Companion)
Show: PPG. Summary: "The course of true love never did run smooth. Love is a familiar. Love is a devil. There is no evil angel but love." -William Shakespeare. Sequel to Hard To Control Myself. Rated for language, rating may change later on.
Status: (Edit 07/2015): In-progress
My feel on it: I cannot wait to get the ball rolling on this one, guys. It's been years since I finished Hard to Control Myself, and there's still more of this world that I want to write about. Also, I'm forever thankful for the love that HTCM has gotten, and a lot of folks seemed on board for a sequel, so here we are! This one deals with different themes than the themes in the first story, but I think it's only right that now that these characters have matured (and I have also!), their story would as well.
(Edit 08/2015): Losing Control is different from Hard to Control Myself. It's darker, it's more thrilling, and the stakes in this story are higher than they ever were in Hard to Control Myself. It's really intense. The PPG and RRB are more mature than they are in the first story, and they go through more than people might expect.
If I had to make comparisons: Hard to Control Myself is like a high school drama TV show. Losing Control is more of a cable drama TV show with a higher budget (ahahahaha). Still the same characters you know and love, but things are bigger than them this time around. Hard to Control Myself is what happens when you fall madly in love with your soul mate and then they shatter your heart. Losing Control is what happens when things feel great and then life comes and screws you over and you feel like you're no longer in control.
This story is everything that I had planned in my head for all these years and more. It may be the most significant thing that I've written so far. I hope all of my hard work shows with these next few updates. And most of all, I hope that a lot of you guys will love this story even half as much as I do. And after such a wait, I hope that it won't let you guys down.
Also, my aim is to make this be more of a companion story than a sequel, meaning that it can be read without reading HTCM first. Since so many years have gone by since I published the first story, and quite a bit about my writing style (and skills) has changed since then, it's perfectly okay to read this story without reading the first one. The little details in the first story aren't that important in this one, and honestly, the tones of the 2 stories are night and day. So if you choose not to start with HTCM, you won't miss too much!
