I'm an old soul around these parts, having been part of FF.Net before I could even add Favorites to my profile. I used to just bookmark them. My username is because I love Pokémon, which is what originally brought me to this site way back in the day. I support Pokéshipping wholeheartedly, and I also really love Pikachu. I also don't like to forget about Brock, because he's such an important part of the original trio. I also adore musical theatre, and Broadway is truly magical. My favorite love stories are Disney movies and Broadway musicals, such as Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast. I also believe that The Lion King is possibly the greatest movie ever made. This tends to mean that I love it any time fairy tales are incorporated into a story—in a non-tacky fashion. I admire so many of the authors on Fanfiction.net, and I hope that maybe I will be able to write something that measures up.
Of course, my love for fandoms have extended far beyond Pokémon since I joined FF.Net in 2008, and I find that I care more about great storytelling than a great fandom. The best writers can make any couple OTP, and the best FF.Net writers have definitely had me going, "Huh, I would have never put these two characters together, but I LOVE IT!"
For now, I am most definitely more of a reader than a writer but I think that makes my reviews more helpful, as I've read waaaay too much on this site (I call it an "addiction to fiction"). I try and leave helpful reviews for every story that I think deserves praise and constructive criticism. And I always say what I mean.
A couple things that really make a good fic: correct grammar, spelling, and character names. Use the word that you mean. I think the worst I've seen (not including the regular it's/its and your/you're and there/they're/their) was "venerable" confused with "vulnerable". "Venerable" means honorable and respectable. "Vulnerable" means susceptible to wounds, be they physical or emotional. Moral of the story? If you don't like spell-check, get a beta reader. Also, please check your facts within fandoms. Just because these characters aren't real doesn't mean that you can make them do anything! OOC-ness is very amateur.
