Author has written 8 stories for Dissidia: Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy IX, and Kingdom Hearts.
In case I seem familiar, but you can't put your finger on it, here is a list of all my pen names so far: copypaste-kyubi-2-ur-profile, KyubiEmz3310 (or something of the sort), Milkshakes the Blue Puffin, Ars Silentium (which is my pen name now).
There are certain origins as to where my pen names come from.
-My first one, copypaste-kyubi-2-ur-profile, was because I saw all the copy-paste things spread all over Fanfiction, so I wanted to make some username close to it; I was obsessed with Naruto back then, thus where "kyubi" came from. The two shortcuts, "2" and "ur" were because the character limit was, well, limiting me.
-My second, KyubiEmz3310, was because of my class number in class, that being 33 (it only became 32 once in my whole life...so far), and how 10 just fit it with 33. Kyubi was because of how almost all my usernames had Kyubi or Emz in it; Emz was because of my nickname in school before, that being Emmett which I shortened to Emz.
-My third, Milkshakes the Blue Puffin, was because I love milkshakes and Milkshakes. My favorite color was blue, and it just seemed wrong if I used such a serious animal for the name Milkshakes, which is why I chose puffin.
-My latest, Ars Silentium, is in any way not (just) because of Kingdom Hearts' Ars Arcanum and Ars Solum. Ars is Latin for "craft", "skill", or "the art of". Silentium is Latin for "silence". While I'm not sure if it's grammatically correct, I suppose it means "the art of silence", which is really what I'm going for. Correct me, please, if I'm wrong?
I don't go for pairings, but if anything, not much crack. Maybe pairings that are sane. Sometimes, I like yaoi, but really light ones. If I read an M rated pairing fic, it's usually because it was an accident, out of curiosity, or something attracting me to the plot like Ventus having tuberculosis.
When in Romance, there are really only a few exceptions to the rule, that being if you're really good at writing it, and/or you are really subtle/careful about the love in general and the flow. If it's a genre I like in general that's love-related, it's Hurt/Comfort and the fan fiction slang term, fluff.
I am particular about grammar, spelling, paragraph coherence, dialogue, sentence construction, characterization, and story flow. In other words, I'm a perfectionist in anything I do.
Proofreading can take days. Days, I tell you. Days...
I ultimately suck at 1st person writing, really. I'm more of a third person writer. But I try...and ultimately fail. D:
When writing about characters, I, as much as possible, make them in-character and human at the same time. Tis why, somewhere in my story, Xehanort is actually nice at some points. Some points. People can't always be angry, IMO. Besides, Kingdom Hearts promotes the whole "there's good in everyone!" moral through the "even in the deepest darkness, there's always a light!" and stuff like that...
In writing stories that are like, "pre-(insert title here)", I foreshadow. A lot. -looks at all the prompts-...
I get carried away in writing, especially when it's like, 12 am or something... This is also why I have to proofread because, well, the last time I wrote yaoi (and failed) at 12am, it somehow ended with Guy 1 asking where his cheeseburger went...
I don't like limits, yet they're fun. I hate it when it's 100 words, and then I have 101 words...
Happenings of the Year:
February 28, 2012:
Someone very, very dear to me wrote in a gift she gave me (a notebook with handwritten quotes at the bottom) "Write your promises with a pen and your goals with a pencil".
Well, it made me realize how much I overestimated myself and how I actually did it the other way around. Coming back here also made me realize that, yes, I should finish my ideas, but my real talent (if you could call it that) is drawing, and I should concentrate on that most of all. And I did (but my time management skills are just horrible - I need a teacher for that, really), but I ended up forgetting about writing completely.
So, I have no idea how I'm going to do this. If I'm going to balance writing and drawing, combined with the fact that I want to take up both Arnis (martial arts I've already tried, and love already) and table tennis (friend; that is all), violin/piano (it's so hard to decide), and I also want to do something that I can actually be proud of when I write on my college application (I'm thinking the whole art teacher thing my uncle was offering my sister and I - I'm no great, but I'm fairly certain I can handle kids).
I have no idea. Uhu.
Also, lately, I've been daydreaming about normal (sort of) teenage stuff. Which annoys me. I should have passed this point already, why am I falling back?! Ugh, annoying. But I'll get through it somehow.
So yeah. Don't expect anything.
