Hey there! I'm Incarnate Firefly, writer and beta-reader on fanfiction.net. If this is your first time here, I'd like to thank you for coming to check out my profile and I hope you see something that catches your interest. If you're one of my returning readers, please vote in that poll you see above if you haven't already, before you proceed with your business here today. If you're here because you want me to be your beta-reader, you know where the link is. But please drop me a message first so you can tell me if there's anything I should know about your story before I look into it. And if you're here for no reason...uh, hey, what's up? XD
I don't believe in the "fanfiction is for dorks" stereotype, because it's prejudiced, and quite frankly, incorrect. I'm of the belief that writing is writing no matter what it's about, and if you can do it well, then people shouldn't judge you on whether it is or isn't original material. And I even think that sometimes fanfiction can be done so well that it not only stands out on its own, but it makes what it's based on more developed, emotional, or vivid. To accomplish this is the goal I set for myself every time I write a fanfiction story, and I hope that one day I'll be good enough to create an entirely new world from nothing with that same feeling. In the meantime, fanfiction is a good practice for getting there and I'm enjoying giving something more to the stories I love, whether it's from a movie, book, video game, or anything that catches my interest. In other words, if you're not too old for writing, then you're not too old for fanfiction. And everyone knows that you're never too old for writing.
Apart from writing, I also like to listen to and write music, make animated music videos (grr, YouTube copyright policies), and if I have the time, draw whatever I feel like drawing. I guess I like to explore the realms of creativity and making something unique from artistic, open things because I simply love the idea of contributing to something of infinite possibilities. That's probably why I enjoy writing so much and all those other things I just mentioned.
If you want me to take the time to beta-read your story, please take the time to make read my beta profile first to make sure you're not sending me something I specifically said I wouldn't read. That way neither of us will waste our time and there won't be irritation on my part. And don't worry, I'm not a harsh reviewer; as long as you understand that I'm trying to help you, I'll do my best to make sure you get something out of me beta-reading your story.
I am an, the personality type otherwise known as "Healers". Maybe a lot of you are as well, since INFPs love to explore the realms of creativity and many of them have an interest in becoming an author. If you don't know about INFPs, it stands for "Introversion, Intuitive, Feeling, Perception". Here are a few fictional characters that are also aligned with the Healer personality:
I'm planning to complete and publish this story sometime in 2016. Yes, it's a long way off, but I have several reasons for picking this length of time. One of the biggest reasons is that I am including new canon in this story from The Lion Guard, which will be releasing a film in November 2015, followed by a TV series in 2016. That means I can't solidify anything in regards to Kion, the Lion Guard, or the overall details on Pride Rock until then. I will, however, do my best to finish planning my story by then and in 2016 rework whatever disagrees with the new canon. Another major reason for the wait is that I do have other non-Lion King related writing to work on; I have spent nearly two years focusing mainly on Kopa's Legacy, and there are a lot of other projects that will require my attention for the next while. Lastly, since this will be a single story and not an entire series, I will be making it lengthier than any one of my Kopa's Legacy books; in addition, I will be putting a lot of effort into making the writing quality itself as high as possible.
For creative reasons, I will not be disclosing many details on my story. But I can reveal some of my plans that will not create spoilers. This story will include a substantially greater amount of supernatural elements than Kopa's Legacy or even the canon franchise itself. I can't say too much, but there will almost definitely be dark magic playing a crucial part of the story. It will not, however, be the driving force of the plot itself, nor will it overtake the more important things that make Lion King stories worth reading. Time setting-wise, the bulk of the story will take place approximately three years after the conclusion to Kopa's Legacy; to avoid confusion, the characters will essentially have aged the lion equivalent of 20 years. And I'm not going to name any names here, but I will reveal that some of the deceased characters from Kopa's Legacy will most definitely make appearances in this story. In accordance with the increase of supernatural elements, all I can say is that the realm of the Great Kings will play a major role in influencing the events of the story.
If all that sounds interesting, then make sure you check this news feed regularly! I'll try to update it whenever I can with new info!
July 22: I'm afraid I don't have an update for you guys this week. I've got a lot of things I'm currently busy with, not the least of which is a new job and one of my non-TLK story projects that I want to get started on. I'll still get to finishing the first two short stories, but I'm not sure when that will be. Sorry about the change of plans, I'll get back to you with an update as soon as I am able!
July 15: Since a lot of concepts are still up in the air, I've decided to enlist the help of some other writers on the site; specifically my fellow co-authors of Asante's Fall of Man story. You'll know them as TRON0602, Haradion, The Almighty Alphamon, Dreaming18, and of course Asante himself. Some of them may be busy with other things (such as completing the next few chapters of Fall of Man), but so far I'm pleased with the help I've received. Haradion in particular had some great ideas for me, and it's really helping me put together the first two shorts I'm working on.
July 8: The first of the two short stories is now in progress! Kion is going to be making an appearance in both of the stories as a young adult. I've decided to take some liberties with his character, since we know very little about him. His depiction is going to be a little different from what you're likely expecting or have seen from other authors thus far. I've also decided to try a different type of narrative writing style, one with a bit more personality than what you've seen from me before. I can't give a confirmed date on when these shorts are going to be finalized since I'll be spending a lot of time perfecting them. But I will try to have them published within the next few weeks!
July 1: I've developed a completed backstory for my novel's antagonist characters. I have a good idea of how the first act of the story will play out, and I've begun developing some of the major characters as well. I'm outlining the plot for my two "parallel-universe shorts", and will hopefully have both completed sometime this month. Remember that I'll need your votes on which gender my novel protagonist will be, so please pay close attention to both shorts and how much you like either character.
June 24: I've begun piecing together plot ideas to get the ball rolling. It's still in the early stages, so there's a lot to work out, but that's okay. My first plans for this project is to decide on a gender for my protagonist. So what I'm going to do is write two short stories, with two genders playing the same protagonist. They'll have different names and there will be different things happening in each story. Once those are up, I'll need you to come back here and vote on which character you think should be the protagonist. The winner will get the position while the other will essentially cease to exist (but I will be keeping both their stories). I'll try to have the stories up soon, because I need a confirmed protagonist to go further with my plans. I will also try to write other shorts relating to the novel every few months if I can.
