Hiya, I'm SimbiAni!
Crazy to think I've been a member of this site for over TEN YEARS.. (since '99 - 2001) haha, & I hadn't updated this in forever.. All of the fic posted here on my acct / under my name, was mostly written from 1998 thru 2003.. (& my "pen-name" is still the same just for linkish reasons.. lol) I actually haven't even been reading much fic anymore (or getting around to reading any stories at all, really- it now takes me around a whole year- or four!- to finish a single book!).. I have too many concentration issues / am too busy (distracted or worse) with real-life drama (ugh) / etc.
I would like to read more stuff, but I just.. seem to never get around to it. Just- too many things to do & hardly any time to get anything done in, & all that.. But if you would like to stay notified for whenever I do read something awesome here, please follow my C2; I had been using mine like a collection of very fave fics, so yeah... subscribe! ;D SimbiAni’s Sappy Stories Vault (that is also what I meant if I said *faveC2s* in any ancient reviews, lol, since I started the C2 way back when there was a limit- a very low one!- on faves!)
Even tho I don't write anymore either, a very special thanks to those who have me on their FFnet Alerts Watchlist & FFnet Faves list - seriously, I really appreciate that.. I still do a whole lot of dreaming & ficcing in my mind (& for tons of fandoms, rotfl- the amount is never-ending & ever-growing, with every bit of new media I encounter & all the new characters who keep showing up to steal my heart!!), but I'm immensely sorry that it doesn't seem to ever get down to my fingers & out into the keyboard.. lol.
I've tried many times to no avail.. any & all ficcish-related stuff seems to only happen when I'm stranded far away from my desk or any other writing tools & to disappear as soon as I return to them! (*cough* like those times that I drift into sleep while relaxing in the bathroom... lmao. Whaat? Some of my best unwritten material has been dreamt up in there! ;P & mine is reeally comfortable, LOL) So maybe one day I'll return to writing! I have sooo many ideas.. drowning in sappiness.. mostly inspired by the constant torturous canon writing of all my fandoms.. siighh!
NOTE: I do eventually plan to edit ALL of my old fics, both to enhance their quality (I regretfully acknowledge cringing at certain things when reading them now, lol what was I thinking??) & to better comply with / conform to the more strict rules of this site (as fatuous as they may be); or at least, I'll definitely attempt to reach such higher standards. In addition, I hope to have my fic organized elsewhere, ie via my own html site or LJ, etc. Doing things like that can be very complicated tho, considering that I'm a bit long out of practice. Fingers crossed I can get around to it ASAP!
My fannish prefs: I might sound like a typical fangirl, swooning over assorted cliches, etc; but I'm mainly all about the emotions, the sappiness & the angst (yet with as little drama as possible), with a love of in-depth think-y type fics particularly, especially focusing on friendship & romance; & I also usually prefer to keep things G-rated because I simply have no interest in anything X-rated, which apparently makes me a rare & strange breed of fan LOL (a slash fangirl who doesn't drool / have heart-attacks / or faint over the "hottness" of characters? such a person actually exists?! OMG! haha) so most of the fics (& vids, & art, etc) I collect tend to be on the fluffier side overall. Squee!
My fave genres / styles / types of fanfic that I enjoy most: general "slice-of-life" moments or adventures (domestic love is the best!!), novelizations (transforming visual media into written stories, with details & thoughts btwn every action, that add deeper meaning to the material, often with smth somewhat differing from canon tho, ie supporting a certain ship, etc), scenefics (ones that elaborate on scenes in canon media, usually with ficcish twists) &/or "missing" scenefics (fill in the missing moments! it is sooo frustrating when the show or movie goes from one scene to another without properly bridging them & leaving me to just try & guess or imagine what happened loool), songfics (matching lyrics to chars etc is smth I'd been dreaming of since before I even discovered fandom, in the mid-90s!), & ones that "fix" annoying / painful canon writing, etc. Make any / all of it romantic with a humourous tone (or sometimes angsty, depending), with extra emphasis on the chars' deep friendship & epic love.. I'm a happy fangirl indeed!
From late 2004 thru mid-2008, I also got into making fanvids (vidding!) aka fan-made music videos, once I'd realized I finally had the tech- I could make my songfics come to life! I even named my first fanvid site, "Songfics in Motion" xD Unfortunately, I don't vid anymore either (not really, anyways.. keep planning to, but eh- I need new tech, as well as talent!), but you can subscribe to my current YT @SimbiAni25 to be alerted as soon as (if ever) I re-upload my old vids, hehe. Due to the bumps on the road to Fannish Equality clashing with the initial implementation of ContentID, my first few accts didn't survive, but luckily things have been looking up because many companies & copyright owners now actually endorse fanvids these days, thanks to YT's win-win "promotion all around" method that's firmly in place. Altho since GoogleTube ruined user profiles / "channels" (even doing away with concrete usernames in place of unlinkable "display Names", tsk) & the previously very interactive social network'ing aspect of original YT, I don't hang out much over there anymore either.. pfft. I miss my YT fList & how awesome we had it in 2006-10ish!
Interesting trivia: similar to the origins of fanfic, vidding as a fannish hobby has been around since even before the days of the internet & (easily accessible) video-editing software, ie even from a time when vidders literally had to use two VCRs together connected to radios & could only share their vid creations at conventions with other fans, etc. Which really goes to show just how important music is to our fandoms, & always will be, & why songfics not only have the potential to be awesome (with certain writers), but also to inspire fellow fans to make fanvids & possibly find talent they didn't kno they had in video editing, just like fic writers can go on to write professionally. More win-win!
As of 2012, I had also attempted re-building of all my YT playlists & had been adding awesome various fave vids to them regularly.. buuut then I got lost in time again & everything is once more quite outdated, heh. Oops. I shall try to update them someday tho! Especially since I have more new fandoms to obsess over & which need pimping liekwhoa!! (ie, more fanwork done for them, both to recruit new fans & to inspire already-fans to make more fanwork lol that's the Fannish Circle of FUN!) Collecting fanworks in general is still & will likely always be, a major passion of mine..
