Basically in the shipping world I like anything canon which I tend to stick to or a very excellent OC in there. However, I will read others if they are well-done. Also just not anything with non-canon homosexual relationships or incest. But most importantly no bashing of any characters be they in a canon ship or fanon. If there is one that turns me off to any story it's character bashing of any kind.
DANGER, RANTS AHOY!
My personal venting section so yeah be ready...
Incest, Gay and Lesbian couples that are out of character: Yes I know that there are gay and lesbian couples out there and I respect that but reading about it isn't my cup of tea. Rest assured I not going to flame people because I don't like what they write but I absolutely refuse to read them...
Sex- Subtle hinting I am OK with. Blunt hinting, not really cool with that. Detailed description of sexual scenes heterosexual or otherwise, not cool with that at all. So on that note I tend to avoid smut and PWP and if it is in a story I am reading where it is not the main focus I just skim the parts and move on.
Poor grammar, spelling and punctuation and poor writing style and poor writing mechanics- A story is not a one sentence wonder people. Yes I understand that not everyone is a novelist however that said would kill some of you to actually use Spell Check or get a beta or even read the stories out loud before you post them? I understand that mistakes are inevitable, we all make them but those of you that tend to do a one sentence paragraphs with little description or dialog or have poor grammar or mechanical writing skills need to read more...or pay attention to English and Literature classes. Observe how good authors write their stories, you'd be amazed how much you writing improves. Yes I'm not perfect in this regard but that's why I've got an awesome beta that's not afraid to utterly insult me and tear me to pieces if my writing sucks. Also before I send anything in to my beta, I read it aloud to myself (Trust me you catch a billion mistakes in this way and it seriously works.) and go over it several times with spell check. So yeah pay attention to your writing when doing a story and pay attention to reviews they are an invaluable help to fledgling author such as myself. Don't ignore constructive criticism because most of the time there is merit. If it's just flames then Firebend it away.
Character Bashing for whatever the reason Yeah I know there are characters in a show that we can't stand for whatever the reason but I think it's rather petty and not to mention immature to bash a fictional character because he or she interferes with a particular ship or simple out of dislike. This oddly enough seems to be a phenomenon common to the Avatar fandom and some Doctor Who fans...(And it gets particularly nasty in the in both fandoms universe...Yikes.)
See I think that is rather dumb thing to do and shows a certain level of immaturity on the part of the writer because numero uno: It's fiction and it's not your work so don't knock it if you haven't tried it. (Sorry it just drives me up the wall on how obsessive some people are to the point of being rude to real people namely authors or reviewers or sometimes even bashing the creators of the show or of the franchise.) Trust me it's not pretty at all.
Numero dos: Instead of bring down a character in such a petty manner why don't you challenge yourself into writing a story that features them as a main character? It may change your viewpoint somewhat if you have to evaluate a character from the standpoint of an author not a viewer. (Trust me doing so will change your view or at least give you a new understanding.)
Numero tres: There are better things to do with your time then bashing characters so really don't. All character bashing does is insults your ability to write a good tale and really ruins it for the rest of the readers. Yes there will be characters that we hate but a good writer of fan-fic or of an original composition portrays both likable and unlikable characters with all their faults and strengths without rancor or bring them down in a petty manner. (No I'm not trying to be rude towards others who have a different view or who like another ship that I don't like, just telling them that if they hate a character try to at least keep the person IC and not make them OOC or make other characters hateful because they, not the characters, have a distaste for them.) For example, the character of River from Doctor Who I didn't particularly like her at first because like the Doctor I find her knowledge of the future somewhat irritating but I won't bash her character because of this and although I find the wedding to a bit rushed I won't demonize it. Also in defense of River I'd like to say for the record she's not a psychopath but really brainwashed. Also on that note I don't like Karin from Naruto, I find her character to be rather vexing because there are moments of intelligence but she's such an extreme fangirl that it is just well annoying as hell. That said I am not joining the bashing. Seriously I have better things to do with my time.
Numero quarto: Why must the person that is stopping a relationship from happening become a monster? Seriously don't do that. It really looks bad and it strikes me as immature. What? Do you guys think of your former boyfriends/girlfriends are like that? So really don't do it.
Crossovers: Yes there are good crossovers out there but some really drive me nuts. These are mainly those that are nothing but a cheap ripoff of a movie...Which constitutes as just retelling the story with the fandom's characters inserted in there... Seriously I know how difficult it is writing a good crossover (Believe me, I've tried writing a few and they are not that easy to do at all...) without going mad yourself or stepping on other fandom's toes but don't follow the story literally. After all that's what the books or whatever the medium is for and quite frankly I find it insulting that some authors merely copy and paste characters into their favorite movie or book. Fan Fiction is for exploring ideas based off those worlds not copying it, so seriously don't. If I do a rewrite I try to incorporate the characters in if can be done without becoming top heavy.
They can't do that!: This syndrome is characterized by people that think that they know better then the creators of the franchise about how certain characters should act or event should be played out. That just drives me crazy every single time I come across this. Yes there are times when things should be better executed and you should say so. However on that note, please be aware that it's their creation not yours. These are professional writers. Meaning that's their bread and butter, you know their livelihood. Fan-Fiction works within someone else's creative world. Don't like the way things are going, AU it but seriously don't rant on and on on how you could do franchise better especially since you are using their creation or worst curse out the creator... (I didn't like Journey's End ending because I felt that everyone on Bad Wolf Bay, save Jackie, got screwed over especially the Doctor 10.5 and Donna (Poor them, he was just born then banished to a parallel world as a semi-consolation prize to poor Rose while Donna's memory was just wiped. Also although I thought that River Song wedding was a bit rushed I won't bash it cause I'm not part of the writing staff and I am adjusting to it in time. In addition to that I felt that Rose was overhyped. *gasp* I know a Rose disliker. Look I don't hate her but I think her rapid fans are somewhat insufferable. You know that kind, the ones that go on and on on how great she is.). That said I didn't stop watching Doctor Who because of it. I just grumbled very loudly and got over myself and enjoyed the rest of it and sobbed like a baby when 11 left. Still I look forward to Peter Capaldi's performance.) (Also to all you haters of Moffat, look I know sometimes he bites off more then he can chew. Also I will admit even though I like his writing style sometimes his stories are bad but for kriff sakes the man won a BAFTA several times. That alone proves he can tell a story. So don't you dare tell him to frack off just because he made a decision you don't like. That supremely pisses me off. Same goes for RTD even though I tend dislike his grandiose writing style I do acknowledge that when he gets the right feel he can weave a great story.)
This author is prone to have random plot bunnies attack causing a sudden rush of creativity and a new tale. This is usually followed by either a long hiatus either due to lack of creativity or time constraints. Please try to work with me here.
Homosexuality in real life...personally I'm against it for religious reasons but that said I will still treat people with respect even if I disagree with their views.
In Avatar: The Last Airbender "The Beach", Princess Azula and Ty Lee are talking during Chan's party about how to get guys. Ty Lee says: "Look if you want a guy to like you, all you gotta do is smile a lot and laugh at anything he says, even if it isn't funny." Azula says: "Well that sounds really shallow and stupid." IF YOU AGREE WITH AZULA, PLEASE COPY THIS INTO YOUR PROFILE!!
OBITUARY FOR THE LATE MR. COMMON SENSE
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair; and Maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6 year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.
Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get Parental consent to administer Calpol, sun lotion or a band-aid to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.
Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason.
He is survived by his 3 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim. Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.

Cool Quotes: "A lesson without pain is meaningless, for you cannot gain something without sacrificing something else in return, but once you have overcome it and made it your own...you will gain an irreplaceable, full-metal heart." Fullmetal Alchemist Ch 108 Journey's End. (Excellent chapter and and spectacular ending to really well done manga. I can't wait to see what Hiromu Arakawa has for her next manga and for that matter I can't wait to read the next translated manga from her.)
"I felt like I'd fallen from another planet, into this strange girl's body. But it wasn't me at all! I was meant to be somewhere else! Each night I'd walk home, and I'd look up at the stars through the gaps in the clouds, and I'd try to imagine where I really came from. I'd dream that one day everything would come right, and I'd be carried off back home."
Splendid fellows, all of you.
Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart, to the First through Fifth Doctors, The Five Doctors
"One day, I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back. Until then, there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs, and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine." - First Doctor "Dalek Invasion of the Earth"
The very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. They don't alter their views to fit the facts; they alter the facts to fit their views. Which can be uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that needs altering.
Fourth Doctor, The Face of Evil
There are some corners of the universe which have bred the most terrible things. Things that act against everything we believe in. They must be fought.
Second Doctor, The Moonbase
UNIT Soldier: Halt! You're not allowed in there.
Second Doctor: Me? But I'm allowed everywhere!
The Five Doctors
Courage isn't just a matter of not being afraid. It's being afraid and doing what you have to do anyway.
Third Doctor, Planet of the Daleks
Oh, marvelous. You're going to kill me. What a finely-tuned response to the situation.
Fifth Doctor, Frontios
In all my travelling throughout the universe I have battled against evil, against power mad conspirators. I should have stayed here. The oldest civilization: decadent, degenerate, and rotten to the core. Power mad conspirators, Daleks, Sontarans... Cybermen, they're still in the nursery compared to us. Ten million years of absolute power. That's what it takes to be really corrupt!
Sixth Doctor, The Trial of a Time Lord: The Ultimate Foe
I can hear the sound of empires toppling.
Seventh Doctor, The Happiness Patrol
Group Captain Gilmore: "What am I dealing with? Little green men?"
Seventh Doctor: "No, little green blobs in bonded polycarbide armour!"
Remembrance of the Daleks
Eighth Doctor: A meteor storm. The sky above us was dancing with lights. Purple, green, brilliant yellow. YES!
Dr. Grace Holloway: What?
Eighth Doctor: These shoes! [stomps the ground happily] They fit perfectly!
Doctor Who: The Movie
"Of course, what is the point of being grown up if you can't be childish sometimes?" Fourth Doctor Robot
The thing is, Adam, time travel is like visiting Paris. You can't just read the guidebook, you've gotta throw yourself in. Eat the food, use the wrong verbs, get charged double and end up kissing complete strangers - or is that just me?
Ninth Doctor, "The Long Game"
Rose: Doctor, they've got guns.
Tenth Doctor: And I haven't. Which makes me the better person. They can shoot me dead, but the moral high ground is mine.
"Army of Ghosts"
Great men are forged in fire. It is the privilege of lesser men to light the flame, whatever the cost.
The War Doctor, "The Day of the Doctor"
Amy Pond: I thought, like, well I started to think that maybe you were just a mad man with a box.
Eleventh Doctor: Amy Pond, there's something you'd better understand about me because it's important and one day your life may depend on it. I am definitely a mad man with a box!
"The Eleventh Hour"
I'm being extremely clever up here and there is no one to stand around looking impressed! What is the point of having you all?
Eleven Doctor "The Impossible Astronaut"
Oh, you like to think you're a god — but you're not a god. You're just a parasite, eaten out with jealousy, and envy, and longing for the lives of others. You feed on them. On the memory of love and loss, and birth and death, and joy and sorrow. So. So come on, then. Take mine. Take my memories. But I hope you've got a big appetite, because I've lived a long life. And... I've seen a few things. I walked away from the Last Great Time War. I marked the passing of the Time Lords. I saw the birth of the universe, and I watched as time ran out, moment by moment, until nothing remained. No time, no space. Just me. I've walked in universes where the laws of physics were devised by the mind of a madman. I've watched universes freeze and creations burn. I have seen things you wouldn't believe. I have lost things you will never understand. And I know things. Secrets that must never be told. Knowledge that must never be spoken. Knowledge that will make parasite gods blaze! So come on, then! Take it! Take it all, baby! Have it! You have it all!

Just because somepony is ladylike doesn't make her weak. In fact, by using her wits, a seemingly defenseless pony can be the one who outsmarts and outshines them all."

"Humans...can be deterred from seeking marriage as a solution because they do not find themselves 'in love,' and thanks to us, the idea of marrying with any other motive seems to them low and cynical. Yes, they think that. They regard the intention of loyalty to a partnership, for mutual help, for the preservation of chastity, and for the transmission of life, as something lower than a storm of emotion."--Demon Screwtape to junior tempter Wormwood, C.S. Lewis's Screwtape Letters

“One of the greatest problems of our time is that many are schooled but few are educated” - Sir Thomas More
Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being an adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.
Fairy tales are more than true — not because they tell us dragons exist, but because they tell us dragons can be beaten.
“Be who you are and say what you feel. Because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind" - Dr. Seuss
Who wants a sparkling vampire when you've got a Time Lord that can offer you all of time and space? If you think that the Doctor is way better the Edward Cullen copy and paste this. :)
Let it be known that on the date 12/23/11,
Ryu gazed upon the Untempered Schism and saw time in all its infinite possibilities and eternity and was partly inspired, went a little crazy and then ran away as fast as she could.
Her chosen name is Kitsune Bard, for her love of traveling, telling stories, her trickster and eccentric nature.

The Miracle was suppose to be a Blessing to those chosen...But Torchwood's early meddling has come back to bite the world in the butt and now the Blessing is even more of a nightmare than anything the Three Families could conceive... The worlds have opened once more and now nothing is there to close the flood..."No one can die here, not anyone...Well now that's the kind of anarchy that I live for. By the way do you want to know how I got these scars?"
