QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Q. How'd you discover this website?
A. Well, I really don't remember exactly, but I know it invovles Teen Titans, and my then-obsession I had with it. I was/am an Internet addict, and discovering Wikipedia and TV.Com to find every single episode detail of Teen Titans was addicting. I think I came across this website then.
Q. When did you write your first fanfic, and what was it written for?
A. Since newbies couldn't write a story for the first two days since joining, I uploaded my first fanfic two days afterwards. It was a Teen Titans/Mew Mew Power crossover, with an OC which, if I think about, was a bit of a Mary Sue. Of course, back then I expected people to review it straight away, but I was disappointed not to see any reviews - a day after I uploaded it. I took it down.
Then, I had an epiphany, after looking at some Ben 10 alien slash on DeviantArt - why not turn the Ben 10 aliens into human teenagers? So, four days after I joined the website, I uploaded my (second) first fanfic ever, as well as a first for Ben 10 - "It's a Teen's Life". That story alone was successful. Mind you, I have yet to finish it. Looking at it now, I cannot believe how silly I wrote it - I have a mind to revise the story. I think about it everyday.
Q. What's your favourite categories?
A. Ummm, a lot. I used to be a Ben 10 fanfiction freak, but what with all the Alien Force and Ultimate Alien-centric stories, I sort of backed away - I prefer the original series. In fact, I'm not really into Ben 10 anymore. I tried to like Alien Force, but it was ... dull. Trying to write for things I don't know much about doesn't work out.
There are a lot of categories I like, but it amazes/galls me how little fanfiction there is written for those categories. Still, I applaud those who have contributed, and have the guts.
Q. What categories do you write for?
A. See the top.
Q. How do you write?
A. Look, I'm a bit of a perfectionist. I'm not one of those talented people who can write stories in one day after reading a book/watching a movie/cartoon/TV show only once. I dedicate myself to watch things over and over and over again, to read over passages. I do the research. I do all this to make everything perfect, to get it down pat. I try to keep the characters in-character, familiar with everyone else. I study the plot. I do all of this to write a good story. Only when I am ready do I write a fanfic, especially for different categories.
Q. What genres do you write for?
A. Mine are all a mixture of everything, if I go into detail about my fics, but it seems Humour, Drama, Friendship, Romance, Hurt/Comfort and Parody are the main ones.
Q. Following that, what genres do you think you're suited for?
A. If I had to be honest, and judging on what my reviewers say, I'd say Humour and Friendship, and I guess Romance, too. Being a Calvin & Hobbes writer, humour is dominant - well, I try to keep it that way, like the comics, with the jokes and sarcasm.
Q. Do you think your fanfics follow closely to that of the original things?
A. I would think so, what with my research. Sometimes, I do feel like I do something wrong - if I should compare my C&H fics to the comics, there's such a big difference at times. But, that's the only way to learn and to improve.
Q. What, in your opinion, makes a story a good story?
A. Dedication. Passion. Emotion. One should lend a part of themselves to their stories - and time, too. Sticking to the original things wouldn't hurt.
Q. What fanfics grab your attention?
A. Anything that is well-written and appealing. It also depends on what I like, and the category.
Q. What do you tolerate in fanfiction?
A. I'm not gonna lie - I'm a slash fan. Yaoi is one of my passions - I'm not big on Yuri, but I tolerate it. I can tolerate most things We all have to accept things.
Q. Your thoughts on reviews/reviewers?
A. I accept constructive criticism. I will not stand for any trolling/trolls. What are they gonna get out it? Nothing. I also despise seeing my fellow writers getting trolled for doing something different. If people have got nothing good to say, they should not say anything at all - I would love to see them do better. Let them melt in the flames that they send - that's all.
When reviewing other people's fics, I try to be nice as possible - of course, I end up sqeeing in a fangirl-manner. Lately, my reviews have been getting mighty long ...
Q. How fast do you update?
A. Ohhhhhhh, let's not go there. I'm terrible at updating on time - when I receive reviews asking me when I'll update, I can just sense that they'll be after my blood for being so slow.
Q. Lastly, what's your motto?
A. "I write, therefore I am" - Me. :3 It's mine!!!!
Three facts about when I write reviews
1 - I have the habit of writing exclamation marks at the end of sentences. I don't want to sound dull if I put a full-stop instead, though I'm always careful not to put a lot of exclamation marks, otherwise it sounds like I'm shouting a lot.
2 - Another habit is that I put a lot of smilies and other emoticons (mostly smilies) after a sentence. It's really an annoying habit, but I like smilies. :)
3 - Most of the time I will put "Keep going!" (along with a smily) at the end of a review.
I have a lot of favourite stories on the site, but I'm just too lazy to go out and add them to my favorites. :)

This story is about a little girl that was abused. If you care about it, copy and paste it to your profile.
My name is sarah I am but three,
My eyes are swollen I cannot see,
I must be stupid I must be bad,
What else could have made My daddy so mad?
Or else I'm locked up All the day long
When I awake I'm all alone
The house is dark My folks aren't home.
When my mommy does come I'll try and be nice,
So maybe I'll get just One whipping tonight, don't make a sound!
I just heard a car My daddy is back From Charlie's Bar.
I hear him curse my name he calls
I press myself Against the wall.
I try and hide From his evil eyes
I'm so afraid now I'm starting to cry.
He finds me weeping He shouts ugly words,
He says its my fault That he suffers at work.
He slaps me and hits me And yells at me more,
I finally get free And I run for the door.
He's already locked it And I start to bawl,
He takes me and throws me Against the hard wall.
I fall to the floor With my bones nearly broken,
And my daddy continues With more bad words spoken.
"I'm sorry!", I scream But its now much too late
His face has been twisted Into unimaginable hate.
The hurt and the pain again and again
Oh please God, have mercy! Oh please let it end!
And he finally stops And heads for the door,
While I lay there motionless Sprawled on the floor.
My name is Sarah And I am but three,
Tonight my daddy, Murdered me.
Child Abuse, MAKE IT STOP!
Seeya people! ;)
