Hey, I’m XxOnceUponADream, formally known as Goffygoober. I’m very fickle when it comes to usernames, so don’t be surprised if mine changes again in a few months.
I’m currently working on the next chapter of Shadows of the Past, as well as a few other fics, though I have decided not to post any new stories until they are either completed or almost completed. That way no one has to deal with my slowness.
All my other stories are receiving the edit they much need. Feel free to leave any comments or critiques, ‘cause those would definitely help with the editing process.
I’m a female college student, a Christian, lover of cartoons, movies, and books regardless of what age group they’re supposed to be aimed at. I have what most would call an ‘unhealthy addiction’ to Dr. Pepper, chocolate, and cheese (I argue that both chocolate and cheese have calcium and are therefore healthy, and Dr. Pepper is a gift from above, so it doesn’t matter how unhealthy it might be).
I’m also a horrible updater. This is partly due to me being a perfectionist and, on more occasions than I’d like to admit, a lazy bum who gets easily distracted. It’s a nasty habit that I’m trying to kick, but as of right now, please don’t expect an update every two days.
So far, I’ve only written for one fandom, though I’ve been thinking about dipping my toes in others. Most of my stories tend to be action/mystery with some romance and humor thrown in. A lot of them are rated T, due to some violence and the fact that they’re not happy-sunshine-fluffy-bunnies-everybody-lives type stories. At this moment, I can’t see myself writing any adult themes, and if any characters curse, it will be sparse.
I also don’t put warnings for character deaths at any point in the story. Consider yourself warned. ;)
Like most, I love getting reviews of any kind. Feel free to tell me your opinions on what I wrote. I put my stories up here for entertainment, and also to hear what other people think, even if they don’t like what I wrote. You can tear it to shreds if you want to, all I ask is that you at least tell my why you didn’t like it, and possibly give advice on how to better hone my writing ability.
If you take the time to review, then I’ll take the time to reply. It might take me a while, but I’ll reply eventually. For those who don’t have an account, I’ll leave a reply in the author’s note of the next chapter. If the story’s completed, just know that I have read your review and appreciate it greatly.
I try to review every chapter of a story I’m reading. Sometimes it works out, and sometimes it doesn’t. However, I do make sure to leave at least one review if I plan on favoriting/following a story. I do try to leave constructive criticism. If you don’t want criticism, then just let me know and I’ll stop.

“Some people live more in 20 years than others do in 80. It’s not the time that matters, it’s the person.”
“When you’re a kid, they tell you it’s all… Grow up, get a job, get married, get a house, have a kid, and that’s it. But the truth is, the world is so much stranger than that. It’s so much darker. And so much madder. And so much better.” – Elton Pope Doctor Who (Season 2 Episode 10)
“The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don’t always spoil the good things and make them unimportant.”
“In 900 years of time and space, I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t important”
“Everybody knows that everybody dies. But not every day. Not today. Some days are special. Some days are so, so blessed. Some days, nobody dies at all. Now and then, every once in a very long while, every day in a million days, when the wind stands fair and the Doctor comes to call, everybody lives.”
“We’re all stories, in the end. Just make it a good one, eh?”
“This is my timey-wimey detector. Goes ding when there’s stuff. It can also boil an egg at thirty paces . . . whether you want it to or not actually, so I’ve learned to stay away from hens. It’s not pretty when they blow.” – The Doctor (Doctor Who)
"We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, "O me! O life!... of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless... of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?" Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?" - John Keating (Dead Poets Society)
"I lock myself in my room and think and read. I read a great deal. It's the only way we have to lead more lives than one." -John D. MacDonald
“A writer takes earnest measures to secure his solitude and then finds endless ways to squander it.” – Don DeLillo
“The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can’t read them.” – Mark Twain
“A writer who waits for ideal conditions under which to work will die without putting a word on paper.” – E.B White
“ I can't spend the night in the museum. I don't have my toothbrush, I don't have my multi-vitamins, and oh yeah, I don't want my soul suffering eternal damnation for disrupting the sleep of an Egyptian canal digger. “ – Gus (Psych)
Juliet: You told the dead clown story, didn't you?
“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” – Dr. Seuss
“We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness in compatible with outs, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”- Dr. Seuss
“And is it fair that Pluto has to live in a dog house, while Goofy, who’s also a dog, gets to drive around and play golf with Mickey? . . .It’s just something that’s always bothered me.” – Louis Stevens (Even Stevens)
" 'Raven, I know you like waffles!'
'More than life itself.' " Teen Titans

Hotch: See you when you get back" -Criminal Minds
