I'm a 20 year old girl and a junior in college. I'm majoring in creative writing. I've played the violin for 9 years, took a couple years of French, and I love to sing. Obviously, I LOVE to write.
I started out reading Maximum Ride fanfiction out of boredom, but I wanted to leave comments so I got an account. Then I had an idea for my own fanfiction, then another idea. At some point, I realized that one of my favorite author's wrote a story for Teen Titans. I LOVE the Teen Titans, and used to obsess, so of course, soon I was hooked on that. Slowly the "Oh, I guess I'll get on Fanfiction..." became, "I MUST CHECK FANFICTION!". And so, the addiction began.
I hope it doesn't take too much away from the books I'm working on. I have a little bit of writers block for my own books right now...so I guess I'll write fanfiction until I'm struck with inspiration...and then I'll probably keep writing fanfiction. What can I say...I'm addicted to it...
I've written one book and I'm halfway through countless others (but I can't seem to finish them). The one I've finished is still sitting on my desk, and I don't think it's moving any time soon. I want the first book I send out to be undoubtedly good. I don't really like my first one.
I like to start a bunch of stories at once, and then finish them in shifts. So, I apologize if it sometimes takes months or weeks to update a story. I don't plan on quitting a story, unless I say "Hey, there's a good chance I'm going to delete this story and leave everyone hanging." I'm going to try my best not to do that either. Unfortunately, I might have to on a story or two. Don't worry though, I promise that I'll tell you.
Favorite Books: All of them, but if I really have to narrow it down... Homeless Bird, The Watchers, Moonraker's Bride, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Host, Harry Potter Series, The Outsiders, The Hunger Games Series, Anything by Tamora Peirce...
Favorite Food: Spaghetti...I really like anything Italian. Not sure why. I'm pretty picky about what I eat though.
Favorite Colors: Blue, Orange, Yellow, and Black.
Random things about me:
I'm a huge klutz. The dangerous kind.
I'm a nerd. Especially when it comes to English. I'm proud of my nerdy-ness though, so it's good.
I believe in God.
I'm good with animals and kids. (This sounds like I'm bragging, and didn't mean for it to. Just repeating what others have said on this one.)
My short list includes: Mathew Gray Gubler ("Criminal Minds"), Wayne Brady ("Whose Line is it Anyway"), Zac Effron (Don't judge me.), and Chad Michael Murry (again, no judging), and of course Ryan Gosling...
I love making other people laugh, even if it means making a fool out of myself sometimes.
I love cartoons, and I don't think that will ever change.
I decided to try hot tea (green tea) because of a Teen Titans fanfic, and now I love it.
Quotes I like:
"Every time my Jetman character dies he takes a piece of my soul with him." Me
"We switched coordination." Me
"You just saved my life! I owe you a quarter" Me
"Where did the sun come from?" Me
Then, praise the gods, almighty Robin came in with his staff. "Dude!" Storm couldn't help
“Oh really?” Knowledge asked.
Robin opened and closed his mouth looking very much like a goldfish, “He-he…he just
Beast Boy: See, it all started back in 1492 with this tea party, in Boston. King George, or maybe it was King Norm-anyway... The British were trying to make the colonists drink all this tea. But they were like, "Dude! No way! We're sick of your nasty old tea and your crummy English muffins!" So they decided, "Revolution!"
Beast Boy: British engineering love. Finest in the world.
Cyborg: Star! Remember that purple wiggly Tamaranean pie thingie you made that was full of bugs?

I have more (I always do), but I can't think of them at this point.
Fanfics I read/write:
Austin & Ally
Some Harry Potter (every once-in-a-while)
I've read others, but not as frequently
Shippings I support:
Fax (Max and Fang)- For obvious reasons
I can actually live with some Miggy (Max and Iggy), because I caught a few moments in the first book where JP wasn't sure who she was going to have a love interest in. Glance closely, you'll see it. I do support Fax more though.
Niggy (Nudge and Iggy)- I dunno, I just like it. At first I thought it was weird, but now...I
Eggy (Ella and Iggy)- I sorta feel like it's weird, but I can see it. I'm not really against it.
StarRob (Starfire and Robin)- I'm more for the innocent side of the show rather than the comics (though I'm not opposed to them, I was just introduced to the show first.) They do Starfire and Robin, and before "Trouble in Tokyo" I was constantly rooting for them to
BBRae (Beast Boy and Raven)- It just seems so right to me. I think that opposites attract. They are so different, yet deep down, so alike. I can't help it. I usually only read BBRae fanfics. If I were obsessive over any Fanfic relationship it would be them. I can't help it (yes I know I've now said that twice). Raven sorta reminds me of me, and weirdly enough so does Beast Boy in his own way. I'm like a weird mix between the two. I don't know how to explain it. I just think that they are adorable, and I am a fan of the love-hate (not the breakup-makeup kind but the not afraid to disagree and be different kind) because I think that's what makes a real relationship. It's not always going to be lovey-dovey all the time, and it's better when you know how someone you're in a relationship will be when (not if) you fight. Are they going to hit below the belt? How will they treat you while mad at you? Are you balanced when you are getting along? Do you understand that the person you're with has flaws (they are not perfect just because you love them). You will argue, you will fight, you will get on one another's nerves, and if you still want to be with them after all that, and you know how to deal with it, then you have a true relationship. I just think that they are the perfect balance of that, and I love them. (See, told you I obsessed).
CyX?- I dunno, I like CyXJinx more than I like CyBee. I do like Jinx with Kid Flash though, because I think they have a cute and flirty-fun relationship. I'm not really AGAINST CyBee though. I dunno, I liked CyXJinx a lot, but I don't know if I like it more than JinxXKid Flash. I feel like maybe Cyborg deserves his own character (other than Bee) one that understands and balances him out. I feel like maybe he's just a tad neglected on the relationship front, but he seems okay with it so I guess we'll just have to wait and see. (If the show ever resumes).
Shippings I think are stupid and/or annoying. I don't like them.
Fudge (FangXNudge)- It's just too weird. I know he and Igs are basically the same age, but it doesn't seem as weird for Iggy as it does for Fang. I guess it's because Fang seems more of an older, role-model-type to Nudge in my opinion. He's like the unachievable crush/teacher of what a good guy is supposed to be.
Mylan? (MaxXDylan)- I don't know why Patterson's throwing that in there now that they finally got together. It probably would have worked better before. Besides that, I dunno, I don't see Max actually trusting another boy enough to ditch Fang for them ('cept maybe Igs). I know why Patterson's trying to do this, I just don't agree. Mostly, I think he's trying to stir up some 'Team Fang' and 'Team Dylan' shirts.
Any AU's with GazzyXAngel- It's just GROSS.
BBTerra- I hate her. Sorry, if you like her. I've never harbored so much dislike for a non-existent character before. I just...hate her. I love Beast Boy, but every time Beast Boy talks to her, or about her, I want to punch him in the face. I just, I dunno, I guess she wouldn't be so bad if she wasn't paired with Beast Boy, but...she is with him so I really just want to beat the snot out of her.
RobRae- I think that they could be good, but they are too similar to last. They wouldn't communicate, and they're too intense. You need to have a fun-loving side to every relationship or you'll go crazy. You can't be intense all the time, you need a balance. That's why RobStar works (she's a more fun-loving and balances out Robin's intensity) and BBRae (BB forces Raven to lighten up just a bit, he works to help her relax and find her more fun side. She resists, but he can't help but bring out that balance). Besides, I like BBRae too much to have Raven with anyone else.
CyRae- He's too much like her older brother in my opinion.
RavenXMalchior- He hurt her, and I don't think she's dumb enough to trust him ever again. She's not trusting to begin with, so why in the world, after he blatantly betrayed her, would she change her mind about him?
RavenXSlade or RavenXRedX- I just can't see her dating a villain. Sorry. I don't see it happening any time soon. She's too straight and narrow. She was born to be evil, so she works extra hard to be good. Besides...it's weird. (Only exception I seem to have found so far: "Unreliable Narrator" by Xaphrin)
BBStar- I guess I can kinda-sorta see it, since they're both really fun and goofy, and their colors correspond (Green and purple), but...eh. It's just not there for me. I don't really see them being interested as anything other than friends. There's just no chemistry between them.
Slashes- Don't misunderstand, I have nothing against being Gay or Bisexual. Right on for you guys! But slashes that don't fit with the characters just don't work for me. I just don't think any of the Titans are (maybe Jericho a little?). My Gay-dar just doesn't go off at all. There aren't any sparks in that way. Raven and Starfire? Really? Where do you see that at all in the series?
I may not be very good, and you may not care, but this is my opinion on what people writing stories on Fanfiction should pay special attention to:
Pay CLOSE attention to your transitions. I think that it's especially important not to rush things. I know it's fanfiction, and I know you want to get to the best part of the story, but if you don't slow down and take the time to get there the reader won't get the full effect of it. It'll seem forced. Take a deep breath before your character makes a decision, think "Would my character make this decision so simply?". Before you change to another moment in the story, stop. Read back over what you wrote and make sure that you've finished there and made everything clear and concise. Take a deep breath and try to make your story flow seamlessly into each scene. This may sound dumb, but it should be like...swimming. Every motion should flow into the next. Every moment is separate, but meshed together so seamlessly, that the reader hardly notices the change.
"Every writer has the big scenes in mind, but if you don't take particular care with the scenes in between the moments leading up to the crowning moment in your book, the reader may not be with you. The reader may, in fact, become bored or impatient and toss the book aside before reaching the critical passage that inspired you to begin the work"- The Father of Sue Grafton in Chicken Soup for the Writer's Soul
I'll be right beside you dear- ONESHOT. Fang wrote a song about how he felt a little after the flock split in the third book, and Max overhears him playing it. Just a random happy moment between the two. Fax."Run" by Snow Patrol -Complete
Only Hope- Raven has a song stuck in her head and it seems like there is no way to get it out. Maybe a little help wouldn't hurt... -Complete
Miniature- So, I decided to go ahead and start a oneshot collection. Yeah, I know, EVERYBODY'S doing it, but I think I have my own ideas to contribute. Most likely consisting of tons of BBRae, but I'll probably add other stuff too. -Each oneshot is complete, but the collection is still in progress.
EMOtional- Ig has a plan to force Fang to admit his feelings for Max, but what will he do when it backfires? What happens when Mr. No Emotion gets a new power that's sending the whole flock on an emotional roller coaster? Fax, not entirely real Miggy, maybe Niggy -In Progress (Thinking about taking it down)
Silent Birdie- AU ALL HUMAN. Max's dad died and her mom NOT DR.M married an abusive jerk. Max stops speaking. After two years a boy, Fang of course, comes to save Max. Can Mr. Quiet get Max to start talking again? -In Progress
Timeless Titans- Beast Boy is 18 so it's time to say goodbye. BB doesn't agree, and he's trying to stop this end. It's their supposed last battle, but they're tossed into another dimension, one without their powers. Is this the end of the Teen Titans? BBxRae,RobStar,Cy? -In Progress
Thermostat Wars- He was used to the sweltering jungles of Africa; She was used to the frozen calm of Azerath. With the thermostat at exactly the same distance from both, who will win the thermostat wars? BBRae, RobStar, Cyx? Just a fun idea I had. Rated T just in case. In-progress
-If you finished this, then I congratulate you. Why would anyone want to know so much about me? I have no idea, but there you go. If you have a funny quote, or you notice something spelled incorrectly, or you see a grammatical error, don't be afraid to send me a message.
