"A critic is someone who knows the way, but can't drive."
The name's Parsat. No, I am not French, and have no relation to the commune of Sous-Parsat. The name "Parsat" is a portmanteau between the words "parody" and "satire". I usually pronounce it with a long "a" in the beginning, but you are free to say it however you like. I am male. I'm more of a poet than a prose writer; it has always been natural to relate and describe rather than to narrate or tell a story for me.
Nowadays I prefer to critique fanfiction and look at fandoms as a whole in order to investigate the different theses authors make about the fictional universe and the different tropes that arise as a result. I believe that the best fanfictions show a great deal of respect for canon and their source material; in other words, these stories put the characters and the canon above the author's self-interest. This is as much of a talent and a learned skill as cooking or playing an instrument or playing a sport would be. I readily admit this is a talent and a skill that I do not have, but I will go as far to say that I am competent to evaluate the abilities of others to a fair degree.
I don't mind if you review me harshly, just say whatever you need to say outright; I'm not particularly sensitive. If it is apparent that you're a troll, experience shows that trolls feed on the attention of others, so I will ignore you, or delete if the review is anonymous. I have one request though: For those who give more critical commentary beyond the usual one-liners I would prefer that you leave some way for me to communicate with you so that I may further improve myself and learn from you.
Although I was born in America, I'm Chinese. I can read, write, type, and speak Mandarin Chinese well enough, but I probably wouldn't write stories in Chinese.
I've considered poetry to be my strength over prose, and I've posted a few poems based on literary works. I write almost exclusively in meter and rhyme, but I'm also fond of Asian poetic forms. Robert Frost is my favorite Western poet and greatest influence, with Shakespeare coming in as a second. My favorite Eastern poet is Su Shi from the Song Dynasty, and Li Bai comes second there.
I've mainly written for (in chronological order) Trauma Center, Resident Evil, Valkyria Chronicles, and Call of Duty, although taking a look at my stories and favorite stories, you'll see a wider spread than that. Each fandom has its own flavor and its own community of big names and talented writers, and I'm pleased to have been able to interact with these people. I was also the one to request the addition of the Mirror's Edge category, and the first to publish a story to there. I study and analyze trends, tropes, and themes in the How to Train Your Dragon fandom, and consider it to be the richest fandom I've seen around. I have a very bad habit of not finishing stories due to a worse habit of not properly outlining them beforehand. Ah well, what can you do?
