Rant time: STOP ASKING ME TO REVIEW YOUR PIECES! I am a busy college study who doesn't even have time to read her real-life assignments or write in her own pieces. I can't help you, and I'm less inclined to help anyone begging me for reviews in PMs no matter how much you sugar-coat it. I know what gets posted in the fandom, and I'll review it when I get the time, IF I decide to review at all.
And considering the influx of this recent begging for reviews, I'll definitely be spending my time on deviantArt getting my Arthur group up and running. Anyone is welcome to join me there (account SS-Chrys), but please, stop asking me for feedback. I've got a lot of other things to do, and the more you beg, the less you're on my list.
GENERAL ADVICE FOR ALL WRITERS: Practice makes perfect. I know people tell you this all the time--teachers, parents, whoever, but they say it because of the truth behind it. I didn't start hammering out fanfics overnight. I had to work at it, and I'm still learning too. The best thing you can do is to keep writing for yourself and learn to judge your own works. If you reread your work and question something, it probably needs to be fixed. If you don't know how, just post the piece anyway. Go back and rewrite it later when you have learned how. Keep writing and you'll find your own way. You'll find your style, you'll get better with the language, and you'll get the reviews you want if you don't beg for them. PROTIP: Feedback isn't everything. Most people sugar-coat it ("OMG this is the BEST thing I've EVER READ!!!!") or act emotionally ("I hated it. You suck. You should never write again. I hope you die. Blehblahbleh, I'm an angsty anonymous teen who thinks I'm better than everything"). Even critiques can be wrong because the person might not be as knowledgeable as they say they are.
And I'm aware that people look up to me, and I'm honored--I really am. But I am overwhelmed right now, and I've learned some things over the years about a lot of different things, one of which is writing. The best realizations I made about the writing process came "on the cutting room floor" (look up the reference) when I discovered how to go about quotations in a better way, or how to use different words instead of the same ones all the time, etc. You learn from experience, which is an individual process. I can't help you with that, and honestly, I'm just going to say all of this in a review anyway. Best advice: Be yourself, learn from your mistakes, have fun, don't worry what anyone thinks--you've heard it all before, so apply it.
Hi, I'm an eclectic fan fiction writer who's been here a long time. I started out writing mostly Harry Potter things, but I've covered numerous fandoms. I write whatever I get inspired to write, and lately, that's Arthur stories. I have a lot of them, and I like focusing on different characters. A thing to remember: I write more for the plot of the story. Do I abuse characters? YES. But I try to make up for it with cute little one-shots
Personal stuff: I'm a 23 year old English-Professional Writing major from Georgia. I've been with my boyfriend, Keith, for almost 3 years. My hobbies include: writing, CATS [I love cats and pretty much any other cute animal, but cats are almost a hobby for me. I have quite a few of them. PM me if you want details, and video games. My games of choice: PC--Sims 2 and 3, Minecraft. XBOX 360: Skyrim, Fable 2 and 3, Minecraft. Nintendo: Mario games. Writing-wise, my preferred fandom at the moment is ARTHUR and that's about it. I write for a little bit of everything though in various genres. This makes me pretty versatile so I probably could do requests, but my muse keeps me too busy. I seriously have plenty of ideas. Please don't give me more *cries, hides in corner*

FINAL RANT--I cannot help you with your stories. I don't have time to write my own most of the time, let alone help you write yours. The first time you ask, I'll tell you this again. Second time through maybe the fifth time, I'll just ignore you. If you harass me about it, I'm just going to block you. ALSO, anything before "Time Lost Revamp" is an OLD PIECE. I'm done with them, whether they're finished, editted properly, etc. or not. I'm leaving them up because I like to see how I've improved over the years. And for those of you that flame them, you're cute:3 Seriously, I'm amused by flames. Have fun and thanks for adding to my review count. Have a nice day:D
ARTHUR COLLABORATION SERIESES
So, I've come up with several collab serieses I'd like to do with my fellow Arthur writers. I have a community here on ff.net and a group on deviantArt to organize the titles. Below is a summary of each series:
Crushed Hearts: pieces based around crushes Arthur characters have on each other. NOTE: The romances don't have to work out, the pairings can be nontraditional, etc. I might do more Buster x Kate pieces for this too [if and when I get the time].
School Days: pieces based around standard school events but for all generations--i.e. I have several ideas of DW's generation in elementary school, the parents in college, etc. The ideas can be dark and center around issues that could effect a school-aged child.
Majoring in Love: Pieces centered around love stories that happen during the characters' college years, be it before Arthur (i.e. a "how my parents met" backstory piece), later in Arthur, etc. As with "Crushed Hearts," the piece doesn't have to work out and can feature nontraditional pairings. BlackNeko20 has a Molly x Kate piece coming up soon.
Pieces of any rating will be showcased in the ff.net community and deviantArt group, but pieces without warnings aren't allowed (i.e. character death, gore, rape, explicit sex, gay/lesbian, etc.). My 1 rule about mature pieces: Grow up the kids before they do things they shouldn't. This is paramount on deviantArt, and I will report your stories for child porn if you have them doing things before their time. 16 is my golden age--17 to 18-plus is preferred.
Crossovers are allowed, be they crossovers between serieses or crossovers with other fandoms. Please let people know in the author's notes for your deviantArt pieces [for the fandom, and mention both serieses for those crossovers.
Because this is a collaboration series, writers should be open for continuations of the story by another author and related issues. All of the pieces go back to a common theme, so working together is a great way to help each other out, as well as write some good pieces.
For more info, PM me or talk to me on deviantArt.
I really enjoy doing themed lists to challenge myself. They're all quite long so I'm going to remove them from my profile. I will, however, be placing them on my deviantArt account. Here are links to the lists, complete with what they're for and any rules:
Arthur One-Shot Challenge: RULES: Write a one-shot for the Arthur fandom based on the theme. Crossovers and multiple theme uses are allowed. Also, there are challenges.
Infinite Arthur Theme List Challenge: RULES: Write a piece for each theme. The pieces must be for Arthur--crossovers are allowed. The list is also on-going, so I encourage you to add your own themes. I've also used this list for other fandoms. I created it with Arthur in mind so it doesn't really fit other fandoms, but feel free to use the list however you want. NOTE: I need to format the list as it appears on dA. I'll have to do that another day though.
Other things I need to mention:
--I'm going to be updating my Adopt-A-Plot forum eventually. In my forum, "Sophomore Sorrows and More", I'm going to post any one-shot ideas/story ideas I know I'll never use. Some are there now, i.e. the "mystery stories" thread, so you can find some ideas now. I'll add more later.
--Projects I'm working on right now/need to finish:
Settled--Buster x Fern apparently. It was mentioned in a part of my profile that I'm editing and I totally don't remember this project at all, so I'm sure it needs to be finished;
Behind the Times--This project is HUGE. It's going to be long like Sophomore Sorrows. Premise: Lily is a new student at Elwood City High. We follow her and her classmates (many of which are OC's) as they get through high school with a heavy focus on Buster, who has a huge crush on Lily. BUT Lily has a controlling mother, so even if Buster wanted to be with Lily, she'd have to reject him on the spot. Can these two ever end up together? Note: YES, eventually, in like the 4th part of the SERIES, which is proving to be LONGER than "Sophomore Sorrows". Also, I need a new title because this one isn't working.
Preliminary titles of the sections:
Behind the Times 1: Sophomore Year,
Behind the Times 2: Junior Year,
Behind the Times 3: Senior Year,
Behind the Times 4: College Days
POSSIBILITY: If my epilogue into their adult years gets too long, we'll have Behind the Times 5: Adult Years.
Needless to say, it's going to take a while to write this. BUT I refuse to start posting until I'm done posting Sophomore Sorrows. Expected Arrival Date: 2016.
Texts From Elwood--This is a for-fun mature project. Basically I'm taking real texts from "Texts From Last Night" and turning them into playful one-shots. It'll be rated M. Expect posts later this year.
PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF ANYTHING ELSE IS UNFINISHED. NOTE: this only applies for stuff NEWER than "Time Lost Revamp." I'm not touching my old stuff.
--I'll post here when I feel like it. Sorry, but a lot of you are kind of putting me off a bit lately, so yeah, I'll be taking more time away just to get out of the hustle and bustle. Maybe I'll come back when things come down, namely to finish existing projects, but I won't post many new things here. See my deviantArt account for those.
