Author has written 5 stories for Final Fantasy VII, and Beyblade.
19 25 (dear lord, it's been that long?) year old female, who was labelled as Weird in by the normal part of my country. I adore demons, dark history and fights, have weird fetishes and for most of the aforementioned reasons, weird friends. Am a student of graphic design - have a veterinary middle school behind me, and a degree in computer science. I also have a hyperactive, smartass, loudmouth cat, called Khajiit (GiGi), who can do tricks, when he's not being an asshole.
I don't normally write fanfics. I do however write stories. Some one-shots. Some 500 page novels.
No, I don't study English and yes, everything I write I'll reread a couple of ten times. I learned plenty in last few years and I keep expanding my knowledge.
You want to chat about anything really, hit me up. I am not going to bother you every minute of the day (or every day of the week or every week of the month), so we can chat at leisure, I do however get creepily honest about myself, so there's that.
Every multi-chapter story has and update time in author notes ("Updated every X days"). This means simply the following:
On my very filled-up calendar there is an UPDATE symbol for every X days. If I am too busy on the day (or week) with said symbol, I shall jump it. Check back in the next X days.
All the stories that I start uploading are ALREADY FINISHED, ergo, I shall not discontinue with an update. Do not worry about that. If there is hell-month (happened in January 2015) which means I have so much work I sleep up to 4h per night (and am on verge of collapsing from exhaustion, the only thing keeping me going are my fried nerves), I shall try REALLY REALLY HARD to update at least ONCE a month. But usually, if I'm my normal self, update is every X days.
example: for updating every 8 days
Calendar for 8th of August: "UPDATE"
Me on 9th of August: "#!*$%#!" (colourful language) "I missed it!"
16th of August: UPDATED
I mostly listen music while writing (which I write in my Author Notes). It brings me the rhythm and mostly the right mood. Some old songs, some random newer hits, mostly TRAILER MUSIC, if you don't know the genre, just type: "Trailer music" in youtube. Or "Two steps from Hell". Or "Immediate Music". Educate yourselves. You shall not regret it.
But I am overall a fangirl like most of you. "You come into MY house and tell me MY favourite characters are heterosexual?!" kind of fangirl. Oh, I read straight too, but that is a treat for me on rainy days.
How to get me to read:
CANON. You want to get me to read, throw out that usual AU shit (if you want AU, just change the names and write your own stories), and gimme canon. Could be a step away from what really happened, can be theorised what happened behind the scenes. But be canon. Also, don't stray too far from original personalities.
There are however exceptions in both cases, some really really REALLY good written stories, but those are like 1 in 3.000 - you know which one I mean, I'm sure. (Example in Beyblade: Your Own Personal Hell - AU, but all the characters have original personalities - also in favourites)
I love symbolism, mythology and plot inside a plot if it's a long thing.
Also I love WordPORN - so quote quote quote all over the place.
Humour. Not bad humour. Not the one that makes you go: "-.- yeah ... whatever", but the one that makes you lose your shit at 4am and creep the hell out of your roomies when a quiet-closed off girl starts suddenly laughing like a maniac. (Example in Beyblade: Our First Noel - also in favourites)
Write what you KNOW. If you write depression, make sure you KNOW what depression is, either you experienced it or someone with it was really close to you and you tried to pull them out (experienced it partly with them). If you write BSDM, god please, know the frikin' rules ... live through it. It's hard to understand BSDM if you didn't go through it. Stop using random lotions for sex and don't go in dry, it is literally the most sensitive place on your body. I'd rather have a guy stab me, it'll hurt less. (Example in Supernatural: Gagging For It - really good BSDM - also in favourites)
What to watch out for - shaky stuff that will make me play with that X in the corner, but will keep me in if the story is good enough - like a yellow card at sports (or whatever it is):
* grammar - I get mistakes, I get you don't use English daily. I used to suck at writing in it. But I ended up reading so many stuff, using spell-checker, thesaurus and whatnot, and you LEARN with time. There is no way you can be on internet and not see the YOUR and YOU'RE complaint at least 2 times a day on random pages you visit. It's like you're doing it on purpose by now.
* micro-typography - it is when you "start a dialogue with this and end it with this'. Different symbols. Sentences with no comma where there should be. Again, I get mistakes, but reread your stuff before you put it on.
* a mile long replies to all of your reviewers before the start of the chapter as if you've never heard about PM. If you have to do this, please save it after the chapter, I want to get on with reading without scrolling for half an hour before I get to the good part.
* bad summaries, and comments such as: "you all know I'm bad at summaries." Or "better summery inside." Summary gets me inside, I am not going inside for the summary, are you crazy? It can take up to a minute to load something on my kindle. So I lost a minute getting into your fic and then another minute to get out because your summary sucks inside as well (no, I do NOT have 2 extra minutes of my time - I read before I fall asleep, I am going to fall asleep while it's loading). If you can write a story, you can write a summary. It doesn't even have to say anything dramatic. Just put in the sentence that most describes the situation you're writing about. Also: "yaoi, no like no read" - If you have two boy characters in and if it romance, it's kinda OBVIOUS that it is yaoi. If you really have the urge to point it out, write: "yaoi" if a person doesn't like it, it won't read it, you don't have to tell them that as well. Also, stop warning us, we can SEE the rating.
* "No bad reviews." People that have no hope for your fic won't review. That's like 2 more loading screens, when I could just go on previous page and chose a better fic. Also, as an author of the story you can delete reviews that you don't want. People who review will either tell you the story is good or tell you what is wrong so you can FIX it. You'd do well to know how to do that. A better fic is what gets you faves. Faves get you closer to the first page. First page gets you more readers ... not hard math.
* everybody's gay. There are 6 male main canon characters and they form 3 pairs. No. Doesn't work that way. Not that easy.
* normal POV, his POV, her POV, POV of a random passer-by all in one chapter. What? Stick to the red lining. Yeah, change POV if you have to, but realize that with every change you're risking confusing the reader down the line.
THE BIGGEST DEAL-BREAKER: this will make me shut the window with your fic and go search for something better faster than you can say "Author's note".
Yeah ... Author's note (A/N) in the middle of your story. Like, out of the blue, you cut off the zone I am TRYING to get into, so you can input your own comment. Girl (boy), you wrote it! Most of the story is your comment. There is 95% of chance that I'm having THAT SAME comment in my head at that exact time. I don't need to READ it. I don't WANT to read it. I want to read what happens NEXT. Put your shit in A/N BEFORE and/or AFTER the chapter. If you really want to put in: "I'm not sure if there is such thing as mega-cupa-latte-chino", put in the darn "(1)" and make that comment at the bottom of the chapter so it doesn't take the whole line in the story. That way I can ignore it for a time, unless I'm really interested (which usually happens if you write how people talk in another language and there's a translation in such notes).
Hero's Dreams (Zack & Cloud oneshot)done for a friend. When two bonded people sleep in the same room, sometimes they can share a dream. No, I'm not making that up. It happened to me as well a few times, long ago.
Tyson's Crime and Punishment (Bladebrakers oneshot). Never ever, ever let Tyson cook!
Street-blader (Bladebreakers oneshot) - Once a street blader ... always a street blader.
The Pits (Bladebreakers 7-chapter story) - Kai's travelling down the memory lane to where his street-blading first began.
