Author has written 3 stories for Naruto.
I'm an aspiring writer and artist here merely to share the fanfictional ideas I have floating around in my head, and to read the works of others. I can't be bothered by an ignorant flamer. By all means, please send me constructive criticism. As much as I like having my work praised, that alone doesn't help me become a better writer in any shape, way or form. Thus far, I could count on one hand the authors/readers that have really given me anything to work with. I'm hard to offend, I can take the criticism, so by all means dish it out!! You want a better story to read, and I want a better story to write, so it should be a win-win situation, eh? Although there's a thin line between being helpful and honestly telling me what I can do better, and being a royal pain in the arse, it's a line I leave to you to walk. As well, I try to respond to everyone who reviews my stories (given they review more than a halfhearted "Good story, update soon"). The way I see it, if you're going to take the time to write a purposeful review, I should at the very least take the time out to answer you.
Also, I have a huge pet peeve on here, and that is mortifying writing. Yes, it haunts all of us, and unfortunately, it will never go away. I in no way claim that I am the best writer to ever put pencil to paper (or fingers to keyboard), but some "works" just make you want to drop onto your knees and scream "why?!"
Sorry for being blunt; I'm not saying that everyone's work reeks of failure, I've actually uncovered a few good stories, but sometimes, you just come across a story that even if you were to manage to put aside the ample spelling and grammatical errors and colossal plot holes, you'd still want to cry in frustration. I hope I don't offend anyone (though I don't see why I should, it's not like I'm pointing out any names), but honestly; if it's that bad, and you know it's that bad (and really, how couldn't you?!), why post it? I'm sure you get where this is going. That kind of turned into a rant there, didn't it? Oh well; I'm sure I'm not the first to be frustrated with it, and I certainly won't be the last. When I get writer's block (I haven't yet with my Gaara story, thank God), I either read the reviews for said story, or read a good peice of work pertaining to the story I'm trying to write. But you see, when reading reviews fail me, and I can't find decent fiction anywhere, I find myself in quite the pickle, hmm? I actually end up more frustrated and with an even larger dose of writer's block than when I started my epic search. But who knows; maybe I'm just not looking in the right places.
Also, for those of you who want to follow something from me other than my writing, here's my DeviantART penname. I update that periodically, too.
Name looks familiar, doesn't it? By all means, take a look if you'd like.
Allow me to elaborate a bit on the stories I have posted:
Another GaaraxOC. My first attempt at an AU, and I've gotta say, I'm irrevocably in love with it already. The rhetorical stage for the cannon characters is set shortly after the Zabuza Arc, I imagine... as in, Gaara is the psycho masochist we all know and (cough) love. Miyune Agnusdei is an anti-social, awkward sociologist who's positively at the top of her game when it comes to her job. Unfortunately... that's about the only thing she has under her control. She can get inside the heads of just about anyone-- but has the hardest time holding a five minute conversation. But because of her sarcasm, impatience and defensive tendencies, her conversations usually don't last that long. Convinced that such a day would never come, she finally meets her match in Gaara. As she grows increasingly frustrated with him, the red head becomes more and more intrigued with her...
--In the Aftermath--
This will be a short project, perhaps between five and ten chapters. I really enjoy sand sibling fluff, so I finally got around to creating some of my own. The three struggle with readjusting to life after a years-long war, each of them having their own baggage to carry.
--House of the Sand--
The newest addition to my collection of Gaara fiction pieces. It's certainly a shade darker than anything I've written thus far, but I think the idea behind it. Another AU fiction, this time I whisk us all away to the feudal era. Here, we see the "Kingdom" of the Wind Country, in the capital, most often addressed as "Capital Suna". You have your typical classes and statuses, such as kings, queens, lords and knights as well as peasants and profession classes.
I began writing this alongside my primary piece, Pivot, for three main reasons:
So in a nutshell, Gaara of course spends his childhood terrorizing the innocents of his country. He kills a man in one of his early childhood bloodthirsty psychotic fits, and another child witnesses it. The girl flees the scene, traumatized by the incident for years to come. During this time, as we already know, Gaara has a change of heart thanks to the physical efforts of Naruto and he takes his place upon the throne of the land of Wind. As King, Gaara "re-meets" the girl he mortified in his youth. He fails to recognize her, but she knows exactly who he is, and flees from him once again in terror. Distraught, Gaara mulls over the matter with his siblings before they comfort him. The new King accepts their counsel, and resolves to forget the one girl who is afraid of him... for a while, anyway.
As is the case with most people, there are many things I like, and many things I do not. I have an amazingly flexible sense of humor and I am very sarcastic, which if you read Pivot, Miyune does in fact have a powerful origin. Me. For some reason, I put a lot more of myself into her than I did Jyinn of Covet when that was up or even into Elysia of Peace Weaver. Reading back, it's actually scary how similar we are (Although she is a bit more forward than I). And as this is my fanfictional profile and not myspace, I'm not going to spam this page with my personal information and pointless quizzes and/or chain... things. If there's something you want to know, you should just ask. I won't bite you. Physically, I can't, even if I wanted to. So, rest assured.
