...no place for beginners or sensitive hearts...

So you come onto fanfiction thinking everyone will praise you? If you had one hundred, two hundred or a thousand reviews saying "your story rocks! you're the best!", does that make you a good writer? How about ONE review telling you THE TRUTH: that your story needs work, and that everyone else has been LYING to you when they said your story is 'the best'?

Nobody wants to be told THE TRUTH. But someone has to do it.

Note the difference between telling someone THE TRUTH and flaming: When you flame someone you don't care enough to tell them how they can improve. Flaming is the raw form of THE TRUTH. I could have well flamed every shite story I read, but I bother to sit down for an hour (sometimes more) to come up with a review that will tell you how to improve.

If you have received a review from me, and you come running to my profile to see how I compare to YOU as a writer, I hope you read this first. I spend a minimum of half an hour writing each review, and I might not be such a great writer, but the mistakes I point out are not the ones that I will make consciously. And if I do make them, point them out to me in the same way I did to you. And if you're not willing to sit down for half an hour and think about whether what I said makes sense, and you're just coming looking for revenge, don't bother. Don't even bother to come back, because why post anything on the site if you're just looking to inflate your ego?


A few words from me, I guess...

As you can see (if you've read the tiny line on top that says which fandom I've written in,) I've written in a few fandoms. I have undeveloped ideas in all those fandoms that are waiting to be written, but unfortunately inspiration is taking me somewhere else in the meantime. I feel that I have to apologize to those who have me on author alerts, because you'll most likely receive an alert for the wrong fandom. I'm getting round to resolve those old fanfic ideas that I've thought of a few years ago... Until then, you''ll have to settle with wherever my muse decides to go.

Sorry.


Here's a list of my current fics. You may find previews of stories that I have in planning, but I don't think I'll do that very often. Basically my thoughts on fics that I've published, and tidbit-sized of information that I can update easily without uploading a new document...

Ultraviolet - Incredibles
Completed. It still needs some critical improvement, so I'm calling for anyone and everyone to review. It's a Violet-centred, action/adventure fic, with original villains. Will be the centrepiece of all my other Incredibles fics.

Cop Me - Incredibles
One-shot. There's really nothing more to be said except in the summary. I'm thinking of developing it into a full-length fic.

For Your Sake - Shaman King
One-shot. Written as a challenge. Of the possibe pairings, I chose the less popular one to see how far it could go. Originally titled "Give Me One Good Reason", but changed because I can't resist the play on words. I still like it a lot; it definitely ranks among the top three favourite one-shots I've written.

What We Became - Teen Titans
One-shot. CyJinx. Inspired heavily by Cyborg's last line to Jinx: "I could have been a lot of things." There's a CyStar friendship thing, also inspired by the episode. Up till now, I'm still amazed how well that gelled with canon... considering I had no prior knowledge of what was going to happen in Season Three at that time. Another of my top three fave fics that I have written.

Jutte - Soul Calibur
One-shot. Another challenge fic. Rushed out in time for the challenge, so it's not as good as I wanted it. The concept I had seemed fun to work with at first, but it hit plenty of obstacles. A major rework would be scheduled ASAP.

Sink, Swim or Fly - Teen Titans
One-shot. Yet another challenge fic, this time on the Teen Titans Challenge Forum. My first attempt at full-length, pure humour. The concept worked out quite OK, I just need to polish up the humour.

Fifteen Lines... or... Annual Symposium of Ultimate Evil - Teen Titans
One-shot, challenge fic. A spotlight on TT villains. All just to fit in fifteen lines... Not my best attempt, I know. I'll get someone to beta. P.S. Don't use this piece to judge my usual writing style.

Scavengers - Teen Titans
One shot, challenge fic. Surprisingly tough to write, even though I thought I could complete it in an hour or so. I'm still not satisfied with it. It lacks something... I just can't place a hand on it...

Duality - Incredibles
One shot, done in the style of my first-ever one shot. I wrote it as a sort of contrast against Cop Me. On the whole, it's a little short, but one of the more serious pieces that I will ever post.

Refrain - Pokémon
One shot, challenge fic. The reason why I'm writing this, even though I dislike Contestshipping, is here. To me, this is a run-off-the-mill, 'standard' shipping fic that has probably been churned out a lot of times. This is a negative example of writing something that you didn't put your heart and soul into.
