EDIT (22 August 2010):
Ok, to the people following Itami: I'M SO SORRY!!!!! I have something! I really do... but I don't like it. And I refuse to post something for that story that is sub-par. You guys deserve better than that and my pride will not allow me to post something inferior. HOWEVER, I've decided to sit down today and try to figure out what is wrong with it and maybe borrow my beta and get her opinion. I promise to get it up as soon as I can and maybe I'll post a Kiba/Kankuro one-shot as well in apology.
To the people following Official Correspondence: we're working on the next chapters. There's something similar going on with my co-author as what I'm going through with Itami. I'm hoping we'll have it up soon. Like I said, we're probably going to go over it today. Please be patient and don't give up on us!
EDIT (28 Apr 2010): I'm really sorry about the lack of updates. I've been very sick and I'm currently trying to get caught up in my classes before Final Exams at the end of the semester. I might not be able to work on anything until after May 15th. Also, my co-author for Official Correspondence has been sick as well. We'll work on that story as soon as we're both healthy and not fighting to stay afloat in classes. Please be patient.
EDIT (7 Mar 2010): I can also now be found on livejournal! I'm using the same name as here, so stop by and check it out sometime! It's currently mostly stories that I already have on here, but if there's ever a delay in updating or whatnot, it's easier to mention it in a livejournal post than an edit to this profile. Also there might be updates about what I'm currently working on or possible future fics.
So, I'm starting to realize that being a fanfiction writer and simultaneously being a perfectionist is a problem. Even when the story's pairings are total crack, I can't help but want every little detail to be as accurate as possible. I blame my father - he's the one who passed on this horrible trait. However, I'm sure he'd be happy to know that it was keeping me from my little addiction. Well, he'd be happy once he got over being freaked out at my favorite pairings... sigh A girl can't please everyone... That's not my point, though. My point is that my perfectionism occasionally makes me take a little while to get updates out or to even post a story. When I set a deadline however, I will meet it - unless I'm internet-less and then it couldn't be helped.
Anyway, my favorite pairings are as follows (order of names in pairing are inconsequential - in yaoi pairings, I usually don't care who tops . ):
Sulu/Chekov (Chulu) (AOS)
Scotty/Chekov (Scokov) (AOS)
Guns and Handcuffs (Drarry = squee)
HMS WolfStar (or Puppy Love, if you prefer)
Snape x Hermione (Is there a cute nickname for this ship? There needs to be...)
Neville x Luna (Which is apparently called The Government Stole My Toad. There needs to be a SHORT catchy name for this one...)
Mello x Matt
Roy x Ed
Al x Winry
Roy x Riza
Really though, I'll read and even favorite things that aren't my favorite pairings. If it's well-written, I'll most likely enjoy it. However, a few things annoy me and you will never see these things in my work.
- When every character pairing is homosexual, unless there are only one or two actual pairings. It's ridiculously unlikely in a large group (for example, in one story ALL of Konoha and Suna's shinobi were gay)- just ask statistics. Unless a story is purposefully crack, I want fics that are reasonable.
- Extremely OOC characters. Everyone takes a different view of people and their reactions. I get that and I appreciate the differences that it gives to the fanfic world. However, unless it's a crack fic, it drives me insane. (And really, why drive somewhere close enough to walk?)
- Pointless "genderswitch." Male characters are male. Female characters are female. If you don't want to write a homosexual pairing, for whatever reason, pick a different pairing. The only acceptable (and I use "acceptable" very hesitantly) "genderswitch" I've ever seen was a case of: "Oh no! The spell went horribly wrong and such-and-such is now a girl!" This was only agreeable because it wasn't permanent and everyone finds it funny to read about a boy trying to deal with being a girl (or vice versa).
- Bestiality is disturbing.
- Character bashing. I understand that not everyone likes every character and every story needs a villain. However, I've seen it get a bit extreme and you will never see that in a story of mine. NO ONE is that black and white and, especially when it's someone (usually a female character) who is actually quite nice in canon, it often doesn't make sense.
- Random use of Japanese. Why bother? It's not impressive; it's annoying. Especially if you don't use it properly! I'm fine with titles in another language. I even have a Japanese titled story (it's various translations encompassed all that I wanted to express in one word and, in English, it just sounded too angst-y). But there is no reason to use a Japanese term in the actual story if there is an English equivalent (example of terms that are acceptable: food terms like yakisoba or dango). If you're writing a story in English, then use English. Using multiple languages (unless expressly trying to show that a character is bilingual and not meant to be understood by the other characters) breaks up the flow.
- Misuse of ellipses... It really bothers me, people... There is a reason why there are so many ways to punctuate the end of a sentence... However... my friends and I are elitist bitches... and have gotten many hours of entertainment by reading stories the EXACT way that they have been punctuated... Large amounts of ellipses are only amusing in that instance...
- Misspelled character and place names. Seriously, people. You obviously have the internet. Look it up.
- "Fateful" and "faithful" are two completely different things. Get it right.
- "Definitely" and "defiantly" are also two completely different things. Please get this right as well.
- "Could care less" means that the character actually does care. If you mean that the character is indifferent, you should use "couldn't care less." Please get this right, too.
As with any writer, I'm always happy to get reviews and will do my best to answer. I won't ever set a review requirement for posting the next chapter of the story. I like reviews, but I won't push for them. Throw me a bone - just don't make me beg for it.
Also, as for disclaimers, here's a giant umbrella one for all of my stories. I personally think that the lack of ownership should be implied since we are on a FAN fiction site, but it seems that I should put a notice of lack of ownership up here anyway:
I do not profit from writing these stories, except in that I gain practice in writing and joy in my heart. The only characters I own are original characters and you shall see very few, if any, of these from me. If I were a famous fiction author or mangaka, I would not be writing fan fictions on ff.net. All rights go to the respective authors and mangaka, as well as to their publishers, etc.
