Author has written 2 stories for Hetalia - Axis Powers, and South Park.
So... I love writing my own original stuff, but I love writing fanfiction just as much (maybe a little more) which is why I'm here.
I think fanfiction has the slightest advantage over original writing for me because the characters already have their personalities, and the world is already set for them to live in. You already have a pretty strong connection with those characters and you can take them and do what you want with them and see how things turn out... To me it's probably the most enjoyable/relaxing way to write. Plus, anyone in this is not for profit (with a few exceptions -cough-
e.l.james-cough-) and genuinely enjoys writing and sharing it with the world for no fee :) so I love to be a part of that whether it's just reading and reviewing or actually writing. I could go on an on about the benefits of fanfiction (like being able to instantly share and connect with your readers) but I could be here forever.
In progress fanfiction:
Title: When You Smile
Description: Stan and Kyle have been apart for three years, Cartman and Shelly are living together, and Kenny is living on another continent. Things couldn't be any further from how they used to be, but when Kyle and Stan become roommates they find the clocks can't go back, and the road ahead is more than just left turns. Style.
Progress: Currently writing
Title: Hey Jude
Description: A Hetalia, PrussiaxItaly human AU pairing fic set in the 1960's/1970's.
Progress: On hold for now, but I plan to continue it once When You Smile is completed.

Description: A South Park StYle pairing fic. Set in the South Park universe, but a lot less crazy. And by that I mean, the stuff that happens in the show is a way to express what is happening in the real world, so that stuff does happen, but in my fic it will be that it happened in a more realistic way... But that's only if it gets mentioned, which it may not because this will be set roughly 7 to 8 years in the future (to where our much loved South Park gang is in high school).
Progress: Currently plotting and exploring each characters personality to discover where they will likely be/who they will be friends with etc. in the time frame I have chosen.

As you can probably see, I seem to get inspired/influenced by music :) it's what gets me in the writing mood, and seems to help me come up with ideas when I'm stuck, so if you have a song you like which you think might relate to any of my in progress/upcoming fics then feel free to send it me in a PM, it might just give me the inspiration I desperately need! But yeah, I will mostly write South Park fanfiction (with the exception of the one Hetalia fic I'm working on). Send me messages if you want, or not, but I would love reviews very much and I intend to reply to them all, and of course, making friends on here would be very nice too :)
