Hi. I have read every review I have ever received, even over the last two years. My shit is officially together. Look for an update to Glutton For Punishment soon. I can't define the soon... Within the next few weeks? College is difficult.
I will stop the apologies on the chapters. They misrepresent the length of the chapters and most readers don't honestly care about my life or why it took me two years to update. It's unfair to you. If I ask a question, it will be short and to the point, and there only because I want your input. Well, I always want your input, but the question is there for a specific input.
I no longer have a beta. I fell out of contact with Cupcakes two years ago, and I have not been following anything in this community. Cupcakes and Allie and the others are still amazing, and I still wish them the best. You should still check them out. I don't know if any author(ess) I recommend here is defunct or still active.
I have been out of the Fairy Tail fandom since the latest manga chapter pictured our golden team in the hot springs with a talking tree. So, 100, 150 chapters behind. Nothing in my writing will reflect anything that has happened since then. The attention on my LaxLu stories come in waves. I generally assume that a wave means a recent small LaxLu moment in the anime or manga. Or a big one. Hell, they could've been found in bed together and I do not know. Please do not spoil anything for me in your reviews. I will get to it in my own time. My writing will still not reflect any new information.
Basic Information: I am a legal, single female. I'm twenty one. I live in the US, and am currently in a university in Pennsylvania. My birthday is the first week of March. English is my first and really only language. I'm a consummate bookworm, and I have my own mini-library in my room.
My favorite color is a rich orange or a dark green. Or a teal.
I'm hopelessly romantic and I hate tragedies or horror. If I wanted to be depressed, I wouldn't be on here (I can handle dramatic fics with depression in them, but they must have a happy ending). I love humor, and 95% of my favorite stories are romance/humor. Occasionally I read an adventure, or a friendship. It's rare.
I have the attention span of a gnat. A few pairings I always come back to:
Naruto: KakashiSakura. AkatsukiSakura. Rare Sakura-other crack. For instance, I once got into a really good JiraSaku. (You may insert odd pairing here. SuiSaku, ShikaSaku, GenSaku.)
Pirates of the Caribbean: Ignore the fourth movie. Sparrabeth all the way.
Avengers: My guilty pleasure is Tony Stark slash. Steve or Clint or Loki or even Bruce. I can't help it, but it satisfies me for when a girl just needs her slash.
Inception: Arthur and Ariadne, or occasionally Cobb and Ariadne. But I'm only interested in this fandom if I happen to catch the movie on TV.
Fairy Tail: LaxusLucy in my head, NatsuLucy for the actual series. I would love to see LaxusLucy canon, but I gotta accept it probably won't happen, if not because Mashima doesn't realize it has a fanbase, then because of the manga-ka's personal preferences. Occasional GraLu, LoLu, and GaLe will be found on my history. I don't do crack in this series, unless you count LaxLu, which I do not.
I got into Doctor Who during my absence. New Who. I read pretty much anything about Eleven, because Matt Smith is amazing in the role. I have an OT3 of Eleven/Amy/Rory, but I very much love Clara with both Eleven and Twelve. I ignore Rose, but would deal with anything for Ten, because no one can resist David Tennant or his Doctor. If I crave slash-Who, it's Jack and Ten. Or, heck, Ten and Eleven would be beautiful. Are there fics of that?
These are the only lasting fandoms for me, though I do delve into many others. Books, movies, anime, TV shows...nothing is really safe.
Inspiration: Other authors, mostly. (CupCakes, AllieJenzie, Archangel_Angelo for my LaxLu) Sometimes it pops into my head randomly - shower, sleeping, watching unrelated TV, that kind of thing. Songs on the radio, occasionally. Certainly, I get stuff from the actual series. Once I get the idea for a plot, I don't get hit with inspiration for every little part. The characters write themselves.
I give credit to those three authors because I'm pretty sure a bunch of their ideas get dumped into my writing without my thinking about it (Laxus getting lost is most certainly Allie's idea). They inspire me to more and more. I don't mean to take credit for your work, guys, and so I hereby direct whoever reads this to check out their stuff. Allie's actually the leader of the only Laxus Lucy community on here, so give her oodles of respect, kay? And Arc - because that's what I call Archangel_Angelo in my head - is muchos amazing.
First of all, stories that say they're about a girl and a guy, but are really about the authoress and the fictional character she fawns over, are generally horrible. You can't insert yourself and create a halfway decent story (unless it's deliberately designed that way. First person, or second person POV). Readers aren't stupid. We know that it's you, so please don't try to pretend otherwise. This is what gives fanfiction a bad reputation. I can't just walk down the street and say "Yeah, I read and write fanfiction", and it's entirely the fault of those people. Well, I could, but I'd get some pretty odd looks and far fewer dates.
Secondly, and more importantly, half of what I have my main heroines doing, I'd never, ever do, because we're entirely different, personality-wise. I do relate to some of them, but who doesn't? They're relatable. That's the point of the character.
I swear right now on every scrap of talent I have that I, as an author (though a sorely ambitious title), will never remove, permanently, anything I write from this website, nor will I deign to hide from the world any story that I work on, however horribly crappy I think it is. Unless I plan on re-writing it and then posting.
If you're going to use something of mine, I want to read, damn it, so at least contact me!
Now, if you just can't stand that I abandoned my Naruto fics, and came here specifically for Naruto but found an overwhelming amount of Fairy Tail, I give you Cynchick, SilverShine, ronny-of-yore, J-Pop Princess. These are the four top Narutoverse authors that I've ever seen, and I've read several hundred Naruto stories. I would also give you nimblnymph and oneperfectfit. These people have, above all, amazingly well-written characters, plots that keep you guessing, supreme knowledge about the Narutoverse, humor that makes you laugh out loud (in their humor stories, that is), flawless grammar and sentence structure (my own pet peeve), and an overall addictiveness to their stories that keeps you coming back for more, even if they published years ago.
And best of all, they don't leave stories unfinished like I do. Well, a few of them do. Not on purpose, though!
Side note: If anyone, anyone has a copy of Diplomacy by RiikiTikiTavi, the real Tiki, I want it. Please.
