Hello, there and welcome to my fanfiction profile. My name is John. I'm an amateur writer, graduate student and professional Pokemon Trainer. I'm a romantic type who likes margaritas and long walks on the beach. I also don't drink, and I hate the feeling of walking on the sand. I hail from the grand ol' state of Pennsylvania, and when I'm not studying or wasting my free time on youtube, I sometimes occupy myself by writing fanfiction.
So, what's my style, you ask? Well, what I most like to do is to take kid friendly TV, books, etc., and turn the adult themes up to eleven. Be it dark and bloody, or otherwise, I find great joy in creating stories that shatter the innocence and purity of the original source material. It's not that I limit myself to child friendly sources, but that's what I enjoy writing about the most. Now, will I ever write something serious? Well, never say "never," but it's not something I'm interested in doing right now.
So, yeah, I removed my 'opinions section' where I talk about all my stories. It was too long and who really gives a shit? If you want to know, in general, I'm actually not a huge fan of my work. In my mind, my top 5 stories, and the ones I'd most suggest you read are:
- iDare You (minus ch. 2) - Chapter 1 is especially funny, but most of the chapters have some legitimately funny moments. Chapter 2 really drug, though, and though there were a few jokes, there's too much crap to wade through to find them.
- Riding the Waves - To date, the funniest thing I've ever written. Though juvenile, I honestly wouldn't change a thing, aside from some spelling mistakes.
- She Found Out - If you hate the overzealous use of Japanese 'anime speak' that you see in a lot of anime/manga fanfiction, read this. It's a short but sweet little parody of the style that, if I may say, is a must read.
- Crossing the Line - I like this story both for how contrary it is to the atmosphere of Animal Crossing, as well as the experimental narration style that I feel really captured the emotions I was trying to get across. I'm genuinely proud of it.
- The Alternative - Funny if you've watched or read Fullmetal Alchemist simply because of how it really plays with the characters. Quick, funny, won't waste your time.
So, let me be honest here. My mind has not been on fanfiction as much as it used to be. I write less frequently nowadays, and my heart is less in it too. Even when I do write, it's usually in my notebook, and I have trouble working up even the mild motivation needed to copy my stories into Word for an upload, and I'm sitting on a good few. I don't want to quit or declare some stupid hiatus, but that's where I'm at. This stuff is just not as rewarding anymore. Maybe I'll get to 'em, maybe I won't.
I'm far more active on the reviewing scene now, writing fun little reviews that talk about how certain fanfics out there are actually deeply symbolic, like great works of literature. I've made reviews claiming some stories were symbolic of existential nihilism, or were statements against consumerism or some such. If you found me through one of those reviews, know that I'm never serious with those. It's more an exercise for me to create symbols out of nothing. Truly, they're just jokes and nothing more.
