Author has written 6 stories for Inuyasha.
Well, if you're here reading this, I guess this means you're in some way interested in me or my writing, right? In that case, I suggest you scroll down and see through what's interesting you. And thank you for bothering to glance at this crap about me.
But before that, an IMPORTANT NOTE: My avatar is an image drawn an gifted to me by I.Am.Mandy and I use it with her permission as my avatar. All rights for use are reserved to her, the artist, and me, the one it's been gifted to. Thank you.
Name: I have quite a number of those things. On FF and internet in general, I'm known as glon morski (for those who haven't noticed). I also carry the name of Chunk or Chunk-chan for really close friends. And that's all you need to know.
Age: Shouldn't concern you.
Birthday: June. Let's not worry about details like the actual day :)
Location: Back to Germany I go...
Gender: Would you actually believe if I told you I was a girl? Sometimes, I don't believe it myself.
Character: I'm not going to say much except for the fact that I'm rather not too open to people I meet face-to-face. If given a choice between socializing and doing something alone, I preffer go into a corner and read or write. Most of my work has seen day-light on this very site. Scroll down to know more about it and have fun reading if that's what you're going to do.
But know, I'm not fond of people alerting/favoriting my stories (or me) without leaving a review. I don't bitch about it, but I still find it annoying.
What I like to read: When it comes to normal books, I read many different types, but Fantasy is my absolute favorite. As for fanfics, it depends on my mood, but Hurt/Comfort and Angst stories are oftentimes the firswt choice. Even I have to wonder why, though...
1. If the Roles Were Reversed
Pairing: InuyashaXKagome, plus other pairings
Summary: Kagome always wondered... what if she had been the hanyo, and Inuyasha the human? What would be the same? What would be different? She never thought she'd find out, and yet her and Inuyasha 'travel' to an and alternate 1997 Tokyo, where in a Shinto shrine, a normal boy lives with his mother. He doesn't believe in legends and despises them with all his might. But then, one day, he's pulled down a magical well and discovers that certain legends are more than they seem - like the legend of the Shikon no Tama, or the legend of the Inuyasha, a demonic protector of the weak - and that he himself is more than just a normal teenager.
STATUS: On temporary hiuatus. Due to my one-year-absence not so long ago, I need to go back at least a few chapters to get back into the feel of things, as well as to fall back into a working routine that ballances out writing and real life. Planned update: in March - I obviously didn't make it. No promises for April, either, but I'll d my best to give you a new chapter come May. At the very least, I won't allow myself to let you guys wait until November again ;)

1) How to write good fighting scenes: five steps and you're done
I'm putting this up here because many people say that my fighting scenes are awesome and what not (although I don't think they're that great but whatever) and some even went as far as asking me how I do it. Well, since I don't know if it were rhetorical or sarcastic questions, here it is, since some were curious.
Step One: Forget about typing for now. Just lay down somewhere comfortable, close your eyes and try to imagine the fight you want to happen. Listen to some music if it helps you. the key is to see the fight as if you were watching it life or on TV. In the case of an anime, you got to see it as if the anime was running in front of your closed eyes.
Step Two: Think you can sit down and type? Think again. No, you're not there yet. We're staying in the imagination realm for now. For once you got the scene visualized, you need to analyze it (even if you're the one who thought it up). Make it run in your head over and over until you know it by heart and can call bits and pieces at will. Pay close attention to detail, like how the characters attack, how they evade and how they use their skills in general. Don't let anything slip past your watchful gaze as you watch the scene behind your closed eyelids on constant repeat.
Step Three: Once you saw the fight and got every detail memorized (or are at least able to recall bits of the fight without having to 'watch' it whole), think of how you would describe the movements you saw. You have to describe it like it was happening right in front of you to someone who was blind and wanted to know every detail, so don't let anything out. Even if it was hand-to-hand combat with punch-exchange, you can still make it look real and fluid by saying small things like where the punch came from (left, right, front...) and what way it was evaded (ducking, stepping back, leaning to the side...). That's what step two was for: detail is important.
Step Four: Once you have a rough idea on how to put what you imagined into words, it's typing time. I also tend to listen to the music that helped me visualize the fight. it helps in case you're not sure about some detail: you can always re-run that small part of the scene.
Step Five: Once the scene is typed out, put the music off and re-read what you wrote. Can you visualize exactely the same thing you've been seeing before typing or did a few things change? If it's exactely the same, then it's perfect. If something changed, figure out if it's better this way or they way you originally wanted it and eventually try to change your expression to obtain the effect you wanted. And there you have it: the thing that in my case people consider a 'good'/'great' fighting scene. But as I said, they aren't that great in my piont of view.
And just so you know, this works not only for fighting scenes: I use that technique for smut, lemon and pratically whole chapters or one-shots. It can be used for any kind of scene and it will definitely make it more realistic.
2) What to do when you want to write something, have the muse to do it (in other words you feel like writing), but are lacking ideas?
Well, people asked me a lot of times how do I do it that I almost always have an idea to provide them with when they have no clue how to continue the story. How come I'm never out of ideas?
The easiest answer is just that I have an imagination that is almost always going haywire, and I just can't stop the ideas from coming. But that's not something one can control, it's something one needs to develop throughout ones life (and don't ask me how I did it, it just sort of happened). So, what to do when you lack ideas but desperately want to write? Well, here's what I do when I'm in a pitch like that (yes, that happens, even though mostly ideas popp into my head at the most random of times and I have to write them down so that I don't forget them):
Possibility 1: helpful book-addiction - If you read a lot of books, it should be a breather. just think of all the books you read. I'm sure there were a few moments when you stopped reading and imagined 'now, how would I have continued the story from here on?' Why not use that then? Or, you can use a plot-idea from a book you once read, and twist it a little and make your own story out of it. Careful though, you're not supposed to write a fan-fiction-version of the book, that's too boring. One lat thing I do is sometimes mixing the plots of two or three different books. Crazy things come out sometimes, but they're fun to write XD
Possibility 2: drown in music - Ever had the feeling that no matter how much you think, you just can't figure out what to write? The ideas just refuse to come no matter how much you look for them? Well, the best thing in that case is to stop looking and let the ideas come to you. Lie down somewhere comfortable, close your eyes and let your mind wander. Now all you need is an i-pod or something of that sort. Best to put it on shuffle too and just listen to music. One of these songs, be it due to it's tune, rhythm or lyrics, is bound to make images flash through your mind. All you have to do is put them together into a sort of film, much like 'the first step of writing a good scene' (see previous 'article'). After that, all yoi have to do is type the story out. Easy, isn't it?
Possibility 3: last resort; experience - That one is good when you want to let something out but don't know who to turn to. If you have a personal experience that is confusing, angering, painful or just rubbing off on you too much, twist it a little and make a story out of it. I know it looks personal, but it's not like everyone reading it will know ir comes from experience, right? Plus, it will help you get it off your chest and maybe even sort out your own feelings about the experience or someone involved with it (it helped me a few times ;)).
More will be added into the 'advice hoarding' when more questions of the type above will arise... or when I feel the need of adding something :D
Can't Miss List:
Here are a few things I think have to be seen or heard at least once. Check them out, it's really worth it ]
2. This one is for a very limited number of people. First, you must know Polish in order to even understand it. And second of all, you must be at least 12 years old (that was my age when I first watched those and believe me, I was laughing hard), mostly because of... yeah, you guessed it! Language! : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCH6n-OGSJA
And that one too, with the same warnings: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BksJPPMryJs&feature=related
4. If you're looking for something funny, try one of those. When the two choices appear, choose whichever and you'll be sent over to the video with the real deal - I just thought you should see the 'preface' too LOL Here are the links, hope you enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ba1BqJ4S2M and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQtai7HMbuQ
