Author has written 4 stories for Total Drama series.

Hello! Thanks for stopping by.

Fanfiction. Is. Awesome.

Look! A new profile picture! I was browsing deviantART one day, looking at all the amazing OCs people have drawn, and I wanted to give it a try myself. So, what you see to your left is none other than a TDI-ified version of myself. :) I'm decently happy with how it turned out. In light of this: I'm a Deviant now! Check it out.

Total Drama Island is my current cartoon obsession. Total Drama Action? It was nowhere near as good as TDI. I feel like it lost some of its original charm, if you know what I mean. Also, I resent how Courtney became so completely evil. I was a fan of hers in the first season, but now I understand why so many people hated her. But so far, it's my opinion that TDWT has redeemed the second season, despite the DxCxG love triangle, which I do not support in the slightest. However, I was still dissatisfied, so I haven't even attempted to watch Revenge of the Island.

I get more worked up over the Marshmellow/Award/Airline-issue-bags-of-peanuts Ceremonies than over most actual reality shows.

TDI is what got me started reading fanfiction in the first place. And for now, it's the only fanfiction I read. And probably the only kind that I'll ever write, either... But you never know! Things change.

I'm Rina. It's nice to meet you. :)


In the works:

The Art of Pretending It Isn't Your Fault: (NOW PUBLISHED. WOO-HOO!) A Fill In The Blank type collaboration with strayphoenix! It's taking place on Playa Des Losers as soon as Duncan arrives and centers around the mechanics of the DxC relationship. Just remember, Courtney's still pissed about the whole Duncan-cuddles-with-Heather thing, so it's not going to be all rainbows and butterflies. I feel like this story puts the rest of mine to complete shame. But for now, I don't even know if that's a real problem...
The inspiration came from strayphoenix's story, Courtney vs. The World, so even though The Art of Pretending It Isn't Your Fault is posted on my page, be sure to check hers out as well.

On hiatus:

Don't Rock The Boat: A new experiment of mine. In the TDA Rock and Rule challenge, Courtney and Duncan were the first to cross the red carpet, which gave me a pretty clever idea! It's a DxC interaction that ISN'T fluffy because they (unfortunately) hate each other at that point. But, like usual, Duncan has a half-baked scheme to get things going again...

...Out of the works?:

Fill In The Blank: A series of oneshots that take place on the island. They cover the moments that are mysteriously left out of the episodes for unknown reasons. You know, time gaps, when you really want to know what happened but have no. Freaking. Clue. I want to know, anyway...so I fill in the blanks.

Chapter 1: Three Hours And Counting from If You Can't Take The Heat

Switching between the two teams, just like in the show, we get glimpses of what went on in those three plus hours they had to make all of the food. The kitchen is, after all, a prime location for drama.

Chapter 2: Locking Antlers And Butting Heads from Paintball Deer Hunter

As soon as we see Duncan and Courtney get stuck together, they're never heard from again. And how did they ever decide which way to head to get back to camp? Full of DxC madness.

Chapter 3: A Misguided Mission from Search And Do Not Destroy

As Leshawna goes around to everyone, we only see a little clip of each conversation. Follow Leshawna on her whole mission. (You know you love her.)

Chapter 4: Keeping Conscious from The Big Sleep

We missed four whole days over that challenge! What were the Bass up to?

Chapter 5: ...Happen In Threes from Up The Creek

There's a lot that needs to get taken care of after the 'heart-shaped hand-made clay bowl incident'. There's a section for each couple, as well as some mixing and matching...

Chapter 6: Heather in Wonderland from Haute Camp-ture/After the Dock of Shame

Let's just say, when the cat's away the mice will play... If the cat is Chris and the mice are the final five. --Based on Alice in Wonderland

The Way I See It: An eventual series of oneshots consisting of character point of views/reflections over momentous points in the show. More will possibly be on the way; it just depends on whether I feel like writing in first person or third, really. And if I feeling like diving deep into my feelings, because these are rather deep.

Chapter 1: All The Difference after Basic Straining

What does Courtney think about her heist with Duncan? If I know her, she's not just going to let it go without thinking up some answers.

Chapter 2: From Love after Search And Do Not Destroy

Gwen saw Heather kiss Trent. Was she crushed? The answer would be a resounding 'yes'. Is sort of just a little bit really depressing. But hey, it's Gwen. What would you expect?

- And, if you have any specific moments/periods that you'd like to suggest, feel free to put it either in a review or a PM. I get back to people.


So there you go! PM me if you feel so inclined, with ideas, encouragement, questions, comments, complaints, criticism (points for alliteration?), arguments, requests... I love hearing from everyone here.

Seriously. I do.

Machine Gun Blues by strayphoenix reviews
"I like a dame who follows directions and looks damn good doing it," he says with a grin, leaning forward to whisper in her ear. "Almost like you ain't scared of me." Her heart races when he dips his head and kisses her pulse point. "Maybe I'm not scared of you," she says. "Then maybe you're in the wrong line of work, doll. Ever consider a life of crime?" A Bonnie & Clyde AU.

Pieces by strayphoenix reviews

Truth be told, on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 was “Well, this isn’t awkward at all,” and 10 was “I’m going to frigging die, I swear!” the situation rung in at about an 8. Maybe a high 7 or a low 9. Neither really wanted to think about it. -Rock and Rule-
