Author has written 3 stories for Kingdom Hearts, and Naruto.

There are three rules for writing the novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.
~W. Somerset Maugham

Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities. Truth isn't.
~Mark Twain

I'm all in favor of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools. Let's start with typewriters.
~Solomon Short

So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who reads.
~Dr. Seuss

Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self.
~Cyril Connolly

Why do writers write? Because it isn't there.
~Thomas Berger

Some tidbits about me: Music, gotta love it. I also sing, dance, and act. The stage is like my second home. Rain has got to be God's greatest invention; nothing beats a good thunderstorm. I'm a very beachy kind of girl, and will go whether it's day or night. A good book can keep me entertained for hours, as can a good video game. Favorite authors include C.S. Lewis, Mark Twain, and Dr. Seuss for their wit and way with words. I'm not out to become a famous writer or anything; for me, writing is just alot of fun.

Yes I did change my pen name. Sorry but years gone by can really change your mind when it comes to stuff like that. Trust me it's for the better.

About fanfiction:

I like reading and (occasionally) writing fanfic stories. About what? Hm... Mostly Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts stuff, with other random things thrown in. I'm a huge fan of alternate universes, and I really like OCs so long as they're well developed and well integrated with the story and other characters.

However, AUs and OCs combined usually worry me, because that's just too much confusion for readers to handle. I don't do lemon, major lime, yaoi, yuri, or anything along those lines. I really don't like it when writers beg for reviews at the end of every chapter, because it makes me just not want to give them one. And I can't stand it when authors apologize for their stories, for whatever reason. If they don't have confidence in their own story, why should I?

ATTENTION all Beyond the Shadows readers:

IT IS FINISHED! No really see for yourself :) Huge thanks to all my readers and reviewers. You guys are amazing!

And now, for everyone who wants to improve on writing fanfiction, I have here:

~~~~The Top 10 Tips on being a better author on Fanfiction.net~~~~

1) Your summery is everything. The story summery is the key to getting readers. You have to sum your story up with a quick, interesting sentence or two to catch readers’ attention. Remember how many countless summaries they’re searching through to find a good story? Make yours top-notch.
Tell them at the very end, in as few words as possible, info such as whether the story is slash or has an Original Character or an Alternate Universe. Saying so at the beginning distracts from the summery itself.

2) Don’t apologize for your own story. If you don’t have confidence in your own writing, why should anyone else? Don’t tell everyone you’re a brand new author or that this is your first fanfic ever. This won’t get you a sympathy vote. It will only make you look inexperienced and unprofessional.

3) Always finish a story before you even think of posting your very first chapter on the site.
“But I need motivation from my readers to keep me writing,” I hear you say. Reviews are rewards, not motivation. You should write for your own pleasure. If other people like it, that’s a bonus.
“I had every intention of finishing it,” you might insist. Sorry, not a good enough excuse. If you start a story and don’t finish it, you’ve let all your readers down.

4) Stay away from purple prose. “Striking emerald orbs” sounds impressive, but that doesn’t mean it’s better than just saying “green eyes”. Let’s stay away from insanely gooey romance-novel writing, shall we?

5) Stick to past tense. Present tense is much harder to keep consistent, and switching from present to past tense is sure to confuse everyone who reads your story.

6) Proofread your story. Read it and edit. Then read and edit again. Have someone else read and edit it, too (preferably someone older and more educated than you). I know, I know, everyone wants to post their chapter once they’re done, but if it’s full of mistakes you’ll regret it later. This is where having your story finished is very helpful. You won’t have to worry about hurriedly posting because you’ve taken forever to update.

7) Avoid Mary Sues. We’ve all put her in one story or another. Yes, we all want an amazing heroine who is perfect. But make sure you’re main girl (whether OC or not) is as realistic as possible. She needs weaknesses, flaws, and quirks just like any character to make her interesting and lovable.

8) Stay away from 2nd person. 1st or 3rd person are much easier to write and read.

9) OOC (Out of Character) only works in an AU (Alternate Universe). This is fanfiction after all. The characters are not your own (unless they are Original Characters) so you have to stick to their pre-created personalities. But if your story is in an AU, feel free to test the waters of OOCness. But swim at your own risk.

10) You write like you read. If all you read is fanfiction, which is mostly amateur-written, then you will undoubtedly write like an amateur. If you read professionally written and published books, your writing will grow in quality.
