Ah, yes, hello to all and welcome to the Ace of Hearts Building here at the Fan Fiction Institution. Your tour will begin at the East Wing, where you will find in prominent display the Ten Golden Rules of Writing Fan Fiction:
Always remember that Spelling and Grammar check is your friend. There is nothing more annoying than having a good read interrupted by random scatterings of typos.
Edit, edit, edit. Do not let the excitement of a newly-finished chapter consume you, and do not give in to the temptation of publishing something hot-off-the-press. There is always time for revisions, and for crafting out a second or even third draft.
There is no greater sin than completely butchering a canon character, just to make him or her fit better with the flow of a particular piece of fanfiction. Heero is not glompable. Pietro is not a fruit (well, not THAT big a fruit, anyways...) Erik is not a depressed sweetie pie. Randy is not...aw, hell, who am I kidding; it's the WWE, they change personalities like most people would change their shirts!
Should an author dabble into historical or multi-cultural settings, said author must at least do some research beforehand. Too lazy to go to the library? That's okay, Google can be a good friend.
There's a severe difference between an Original Character and a Mary Sue. Learn it
Never, ever, EVER insert an unnaturally beautiful mysterious new girl with kickass fighting powers, a spitfire, rebellious personality, and a mysterious angst-filled past, into the canon storyline...unless she ends up contracting an STD from her many amorous activities with all the resident hotties.
Boromir is hotter than Legolas. There, I've said it! Acey gets lynched by a mob of outraged Orlando Bloom fangirls
For a believable romantic story, don't have your main couple conveniently fall in love at first sight, and/or shagging by the end of the second chapter.
Humor is good. Humor is funny. Random acts of stupidity, OOCness, and gratuitous cursing, on the other hand, is definitely NOT good.
What, you're still reading this?
Ah, is the Rules section beginning to bore or enrage you? Then allow your humble tour guide to direct you to the West Wingotherwise known as the Eye Candy sectionof the Ace of Hearts Building, here at the Fan Fiction Institution.
Gerard Butler. He's too dashing and good-looking to be called hot, let's just call him extraordinarily handsome. There, that sounds so much more sophisticated. Now, take a good look at that incredible profile. Those blue eyes. That delicious Scottish accent. The charisma and dark sensuality he exudes in The Phantom of the Opera, through merely a half-way opened white shirt. Swoons
OTHER MEMBERS OF ACEY'S HOTTIE HALL OF FAME
Randy Orton. That face, that chest, that perfect tan, those abs, those baby blues...plus he ain't too shabby, both in the ring or on the mic, for that matter.
Josh Hartnett. Pretty self-explanatory, wouldn't you think?
Takeshi Kaneshiro. GQ-worthy good looks, strong, chiseled features. So what if he blabbed excessively about playful wind and carefree wind and similar windy crap in House of Flying Daggers; it certainly doesn't detract from his appeal.
Find something you like in the Movies section of the Building? Take your pick; my favorite movies list probably isn't as long as others', but I like to think it's eclectic enough to accommodate everybody's taste. Today's special screenings are as follows:
Gone With The Wind: The ultimate chick flick in my view, and an actually respectable one at thathow many movies, of any genre, can YOU name that won a well-deserved total of ten Oscars?
The Terminator: And to balance out all the chick-flicky goodness, one of the ultimate action movies for all you guys out there. Sure there's plenty of stuff blowing up, but at least the basic storyline is enough to capture your attention.
Mrs. Doubtfire: The ultimate comedy to compliment the aforementioned ultimate chick flick and ultimate shoot-em-up action flick. Gotta love Robin Williams, he kicks some serious arse in this movie, and any comedy that doesn't resort to dirty jokes and mindless klutzy goofing-off earns major brownie points with me.
Life Is Beautiful: While we're on a roll with comedy, this charming, hilarious, and extremely touching movie has got to be one of the best ever. Any flick that can have its audience roaring with laughter through practically every scene and then shedding tears at the end is definitely gold in my book.
The Ghost And The Darkness: Seriously, though, has anyone else seen this movie? I saw it as a kid when it first came out, and had the bad luck of catching a late-evening, early-night showing of it at the movie theater. Needless to say, it promptly wound up scaring me so badly that I thought I'd have nightmares for a week.
The Sound Of Music: Aw, come on, is there anyone who actually DOESN'T love this? The hills are aliiiiiiiiiiive...
The Phantom of the Opera: Speaking of musicals...Dun! Dun dun dun dun dun! Cue organ intro The movie is absolutely lush and rich, a feast for the eyes and the ears, and Gerard Butler's phantom is so dark, charismatic, and seductive, yet so cruel and manipulative at the same time, it's hard not to be completely mesmerizedby his portrayal and his onscreen presence.
The Princess Bride: Come on! What girl hasn't dreamed of being a princess or a bride at one time or another? And there should seriously be a handsome, blonde, gallant Westley out there for every one of the aforementioned girls who grew up determined to make a career out of being a fairy princess.
Pirates of the Caribbean: It's okay to jump on the bandwagon every now and then. Besides, how many people out there seriously DON'T like this movie?
And to conclude your tour of the Ace of Hearts Building, your guide will now direct you to the Library. Below, you will find all of Acey's works that she deemed safe enough to publish without risking getting rotten fruit chucked at her head by an unappreciative audience.
