Author has written 3 stories for Harry Potter, and Pokémon.
I am , as my profile suggest , am a Chinese from Singapore . Currently , I am 18 , having completed my A-levels , and waiting to enter mandatory military service in my country . Ironically , by the way , my Chinese is really awful .
I am a Fan of Orchestra Music , but also of Video Game and Anime OSTs. The proportion of Pop in my I-pod is abysmally close to zero.
My first Story is on Harry Potter , but I have plans (that may or may not see the light of day) for other stories , mostly in Anime.
As you could guess from my first story , I am a fan of Rare Ships and pairings- as long as they are not slash . It's the unconventionality of it , and how authors manage to pull these AUs of convincingly that really fascinates me .
On the other hand , I also enjoy Conventional Shipping often - and up there among my favorites are Harry Potter/ Hermione Granger shippings . Actually , my personal opinion is that JK Rowling , while an excellent children's author fumbled quite a bit in the last few books - most glaringly when it came to romance . The Harry Potter / Ginny Weasly shipping , while plausible to me received too little build up . There were very few direct evidence that HP/GW were getting closer in the run up to book 6 . While I do not disagree with the pairing , I sincerely think that , till book 6 , HP/GW did not really come too close as friends , and that their romance was very sudden . Another thing that I think is really glaring is the pairing of Hr/Rw . It seems like JK Rowling is just pairing up the spares to me . Imo , that marriage is going to be an outright disaster . Probaby not in two decades , but it may very well collapse some years after the Epilouge . One plot bunny in my head , even before Destiny's Emissary involved subverting , de constructing and generally demolishing Harry's statement at the end : all is well . Given that well rhymes with hell , it could be interesting trying to turn the All is Well into All is Hell gradually and slowly over many years , by spreading the story over years - or even decades. Given the magnitude of such an undertaking though , I've decided not to go for it for my first fan fiction . I have made plans for this - probably subjected to revision.

My Summary Sucks : Why on Earth are you advertising that your writing skills is rubbish?
What does he do now: Facepalms. You are stating the obvious . Why bother with a summary then? Not to mention that most of such works tend to be dreadful , infantile rubbish. Please PM me with a fic that subverts that
Songfics . For some reason , I never like them , since they disrupt narrative , and often enslaves narrative to the lyrics even when it's nonsensical. Now , I can understand that it's a challenge of sorts , but it's very much narrative Out of Characterness in my view, which is comparable to Character OOCness . I can also understand that it can potentially be done well. Sturgeon's law hits that one even harder than regular fics though.
Now one challenge , that I might attempt , will be to write a full length fanfic constructed using OSTs as Chapter titles and themes . It's not as jarring to the narrative , in my opinions.
High School Fics : Yes , I know. Write what you know is a good idea , but High School Fics tend to be quite immature , shoddily written , and often veers into a mess of self-insert sues and OOCing. I'm sure there are good ones out there , but the concept as a whole isn't one that really sits well with me , so it probably has to be better than the average fic Sturgeon law defying Fics.
Oh , and one final note . I strongly dislike Slash . Very strongly dislike Slash . It's just my personal opinion , but I think that there should be a Slash filter in addition to M .
