How can I describe myself in so many words? You can just think of me as your average fanfic writer. There is not much I can say about myself, but all I can say is that this page (and all the stories I've written here) exists because of the inspiration of many.
My fanfiction challenges are on Spiral Musings - have fun with taking them where I currently cannot.
Rants: (thank Ekusukallybaa for this, I had a lot of fun reading his page)
Do send me a PM if you find whatever I say objectionable.
Hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it.
And fuck you if you like it.
That is all.
P.S. I FUCKING KILL, MAIM AND TORTURE THOSE BASTARDS IN MY STORIES, THAT'S HOW YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I HATE THAT SHIT.
2. Bad Ends / Bashing
I get that some authors don't like characters. What I don't get is demonizing them instead of giving them the character development they need to overcome their flaws. And fuck Evangelion Gear and whoever wrote it with several giant spiked tentacles of forced intrusion. THAT is not how you write a crossover. That is how you take a good premise, and then wrench off its head before shitting down its neck.
Seriously, I don't even LIKE ASUKA THAT MUCH, and that ending just chilled me to the bone at how evil some authors can be.
Another tack I dislike immensely is in-story circumstances that lead people to claim bashing. Case in point: Promises of a Wandering Hero (fanfic) and Gundam 00 season 2. If your character development is finished, OF COURSE you'll look like a more developed character than the new entrants. Some characters might seem a little flat (MARIE) because their characters are done developing and that they're moving to the background.
Still doesn't help the whole "YOU HABU KONTORORU DESU!" "I HABU KONTORORU." thing.
Finally, I am a fucking hypocrite because I am chafing at the bit to write a Cosmic Era story with a "ELS Visits, Everyone Gets Fucking Assimilated" ending. I don't know if I get a pass because Kira Fucking Yamato and Lacus Fucking Clyne are director and writer avatars respectively, but I don't give a shit. Worry not, because you won't see shit like Evangelion Gear happen to them - even I have standards.
tl;dr: Bashing that leads to character development = potentially good; bashing just for the sake of it = shitty writing by a shitty writer
3. Stations of the Canon
I don't like it, but sometimes I write it - but in a way that the stations provide a window to forces operating beyond the characters' knowledge. Don't know if I've succeeded in my stories, but I'll keep trying. The idea is to write the stations of the canon in a way that has other circumstances happening. Widen the setting, so to speak. Give the reader a bit more of a view into the world and why something similar to what he read before in canon is also happening here. It's difficult, but it can be done.
There's a gold standard for bad citrus fics, and it's chapter 16.5 of Sword Art Online (with ending ripped off from Scary Movie! OH MY COD!). Go read Yutaka Tanaka's manga and try to put that stuff into words. It will help out a lot, believe me, it will.
5. Uzumaki "Badass of the Week" Naruto
Do not be like that brain-dead no-talent hack Chiaki Morosawa and write Naruto as a godlike, omnipotent, never-wrong creature with a harem because of fucking wish fulfillment. Seriously. You do not want to be like Chiaki Morosawa. Period. Q. E. Fucking. D.
(Besides, most of the fun of stories about Naruto getting stronger are the struggles he goes through to get there - especially when he battles within himself.)
If realistically done, why not? But if it's wish fulfillment, then you're no better than Morosawa. Fuck off.
7. Banishment fics
If someone dumb enough to try and fix what ain't broke wants to go ahead and try taking care of this crappy premise, feel free to go ahead. I've written a few thousand words on this premise and it sounds kind of good, but I think it will fall apart in a couple of chapters.
8. Exaggerated violence in anime
I try to keep some degree of consistency in what I write, so I don't like this trope.
Why yes, I jumped up and cheered while yelling "PAYBACK'S A BITCH, AIN'T IT?!" when Kanako punched Naru in Love Hina Again.
Any other rants I have in mind will be added here.
Twin Fates will be updated much slower as the rewriting of Arcane Heart takes priority. Chapter 7 is FINISHED! Chapter 8 is around 40% finished, with 25% in digital copy and 15% in hard copy - which I have yet to find.
Arcane Heart - 4 chapters out of 11 in the rewrite is complete. Chapter 5-6 of the rewrite is about 30% complete.
Anxiety and Tea - OC-centric fic with a bit of music and band interaction. K-On! crossover, chapter 1 of 4 is up, 2 is 80% complete.
From Zero to Infinity - Familiar of Zero crossed with Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. Louise summons Lordgenome. What happens? (Chapter 6 is finished.)
Metal Gear Solid - Chaotic Solace Chapter 1 is now in the think tank. (Speaking of Metal Gear Solid, you should track down hiimdaisy's "Let's Destroy Metal Gear!" series. It's a massive laugh riot.) I'll also need some help with Special Forces terminology and all that. Much thanks to anyone who'd step up.
That Other Diagnostician is also likewise in the planning process. Again, anyone with a background in medical terminology would help out greatly.
Oh yeah, I try to answer reviews depending on what they say and how they say it.
- This is a site where you'll understand more about the Devices I've used for Naruto: Arcane Heart.
Updates are slow going, quests included. Schedule will expand a bit after school paperwork finishes, and then I can get to updating a lot of my stories.
Updates are v-e-r-y s-l-o-w due to quests and job maintenance.
Thanks for stopping by!
