The Story of Rachel...
Hello brave person. Welcome to my wonderful little bubble of fanfic.
Once upon a time there was a little girl who decided to join the magical land of fanfiction. She wrote some stories, disappeared for a while, and now she's back :D Reading through her old profile made her cringe slightly, but it was also like rediscovering an old friend... *sigh* Oh well, here's some shizzle about me:
My name is Rachel, call me Rach if that's what you prefer (it's easier to type :P), I really don't mind.
I'm 16. I've been playing piano since I was 12 and I love music. I also do a bit of acting, I'm not brilliant though :P
Je parle un petit peu de francais :)
I'm tall... (well, an ant would think so.) Let's just leave it at that :)
My all time favourite band is McFly
My other favourite bands are Kill Hannah and Breaking Benjamin. My friend asked if I had bad experiences with people called Hannah and Benjamin...
I'm a Hufflepuff and proud of it! :D I will have a serious identity crisis if I get sorted anywhere else when my Pottermore welcome email eventually comes. I think Dobby might have it at the moment, but I will track that elf down and get it one day...
As you may have noticed from that last nugget of information, I adore Harry Potter. My favourite ships are Lily/James and Ron/Hermione.
I live for the laughs :D
26/08/11- I made this list when I was about 13 or 14. I think I may have calmed down a bit since then :P Still, it amused me so much I couldn't bring myself to delete it, so feel free to read if you have nothing better to do. It may cause offence- but then again, so do a lot of things.
Forgetting Things- I'd remembered something else to put on the list but then I forgot it!! Grr how annoying!!
Lip Syncing- oh yeah here it is! But seriously, if people have a career in music it should be because they are able to SING. I hate it when people mime/lip sync because they're just making loads of money from their songs when they can't even sing live. Some people use the excuse 'I can't sing while I'm dancing'; the dancing isn't as important, it's not the dancing that people HEAR when they're listening to their iPods, most people just use dancing to cover up the fact that their song is shit. Besides, if you really want dancing, can't you just get backing dancers? Grr.
Hiccups- they are annoying because once you get them you can't talk properly and if you laugh they get worse. And sometimes they hurt.
Bananas- eurgh! How can anyone actually like them? They are the most disgusting things EVER :S
Talent Show Sob Stories- Yes, it's a shame if your mum/dad/wife/husband/kids/siblings/best friend's next door neighbour's dog has just died. But you don't have to keep going on about it, because it doesn't make anyone a better singer. You're either good or you're not- and if you're not, sob stories won't make you good.
The Word 'Mom' In Harry Potter Fics- Harry Potter is set in Britain, and in Britain we don't say 'mom', we say 'mum'. It's not fair- most of the things I write fics for are set in America and I'm British, and I always try to make mine sounds American. Why can't you Americans do the same for us? Is one little 'u' too much effort for you?
People Who Call Me Short- no one does that. No one. Ever. I'm not even short- the rest of you are too tall :)
Spelling/Grammar Freaks- everyone makes mistakes. No one's perfect, everyone gets it wrong once in a while.
Flamers- if you don't like a fic then fair enough, you don't like it- that's your opinion. But if you're going to review it anyway then at least give them constructive critisism so they can make their story better. If you're just going to say 'i don't like it', and even worse, be nasty about it, then you are not only wasting your own time, but everyone else's too. In other words: flamers of the world, GET A LIFE.
Hannah Montana- everyone is so obsessed with it, and I've never watched it but the adverts are awful.
Camp Rock- just a rip off of High School Musical. And it has the Jonas Brothers in it.
Spot Cream Adverts- it's ridiculous how the actors they use never have spots in the first place. I'm sure they airbrush them.
Celebrity Couples- I don't follow them, it's up to them what they do with their lives.
Footballers- they are so overpaid it's ridiculous. 40k a week just for kicking a ball around?! What the hell is that about?
People Who Are Famous For No Reason- like Paris Hilton. HAVING RICH PARENTS SHOULD NOT MAKE HER FAMOUS. Being famous should be about actually having some talent.
Homework- yuck. Just because teachers don't have lives doesn't mean that we're saddos too. Isn't it bad enough that they make us slave away in school hours?
School Uniform- it's uncomfortable, it looks awful and it makes everyone look the same.
Spots- they make your face look a mess and it's soooooo painful trying to get rid of them.
Animal Testing- it's just cruel and selfish, as is eating meat and killing animals for their fur.
Racism- the colour of someone's skin makes them no better or worse than anyone else.
Homophobia- if people are attracted to people of the same sex as them, then so what? Just leave them alone and let them find someone they can be happy with.
Chavs- most people who use Fanfic are American, and therefore are lucky enough to live in a country where there are no chavs. I can't really explain what a chav is, look it up on the Internet, but I will tell you, as will pretty much everyone else that lives in Britain, that we are a lot better off without them.
Hair Colour Stereotypes- blondes aren't always dumb, brunettes aren't always boring and redheads don't always have tempers. That kind of stuff has nothing to do with what colour our hair is.
