Don't mind me. I'm just your average day-to-day lurker. I'm waiting for the time when I can actually get off my ass and write something worthwhile. For now, other people's Fanfics and the foolish reviews I concoct are enough to keep me alive. All I can say is someday, someday.
I figured that I might just as well put it in here. I'm currently sinking myself in the world of Naruto Fanfics and let me tell you, it's a wonderful sort of drowning. My favorite Naruto character would have to be Yamanaka Ino. I can sympathize with her a lot and the attitude and personality she shows in cannon is so... human. It adds a fresh, slice-of-life feeling to an otherwise Shonen story. Also, the fact that you actually have to look more closely at her actions and the reasoning behind them to find that she actually has such a good heart adds a depth to her character that far outshines her superfluous and head-strong approach towards situations. Haters gotta hate, but I'm sticking to rooting for Ino. C: Write a good story about her and I'll hound it. Lurk in it. Wallow in die-hard optimism. Love it foreveeeeeer.
Make a fan-girl happy, won't you?
You know you want to.
~Likes reading Fanfics that actually build up a solid plot and a believable climax. Also strongly prefers that characters stick to who they are and only change slowly through time under circumstances that would require them too. No insta-love situations. No insta-powerful training regimen. No, "mwahahahaha! I r turned into evilzzz from cute, innocent dumb-ass after witnessing bunny eat my shoes" thingy. There's stories which make you reel over and think of what in the world just happened? How did he get there or why is he so suddenly this and that? Suddenly, it feels like you're reading from a completely different thing and the main character just happened to have the same name as a certain person in a certain story. Weird.
~ In the case of AU, I don't mind the radical changes as long as the characters remain the same and/or there is reasoning behind the changes, situational or character-wise. Plot and setting difference is a given.
~No stupid OC insertion. Make your OCs believable and interesting. Mary-Sue and company should be strapped to a rocket ship and sent to a black-hole. An OC as the leading main character makes me to click to "back" button.
~Likes humorous situations, sarcastic exchanges, and the random chatter banter. Wise-cracks with a sensible dose of expletives plus a good setting makes a very good cocktail. Specially enjoyable after those long stressful days being a part-time student, full-time slacker.
~Dislikes senseless, random character bashing no matter how tempting it may be. There are some characters in stories whom I don't really like or downright abhor. But, even so, give 'em a fair chance. Don't make them go BOOM while all their friends shriek with glee over their demise.
