Well, it seems you have come to my profile. I will do my best not to find that creepy and introduce myself.
My name is heyshalina. My name until very recently was Frenzied Warrior, so don't freak out. I'm still me.
I now have an Archive of Our Own account under the same name, heyshalina. A lot of my work will also be posted over there.
I love reviews. Just pointing that out. Who doesn't? If you don't, well, wrong place, my friend. And now my ridiculous musings of which no one is interested.
Avatar: That, m'dear, is Catbug from Bravest Warriors.
According to Pottermore, I am a Hufflepuff. I am definitely a daughter of Apollo, I belong in District Seven, I am an Airbender (at least that's what all the quizzes say. Hmph), and my wings are gold at the top with white going down and red and gold speckles. Ooh, pretty.
This shows how obsessed I am with books. Ah, well.
RANT OF NOW (Because I feel like it):
Fandom of the day, week, whatever: Y'all.
This isn't really a rant, as much as it is a...thank you.
My Avengers story, Situations, is one of my, no, is my biggest success on this site. There are only four chapters in the durn thing, and I have 103 reviews. This just tears my heart to pieces and makes me tear up a little. I never, ever anticipated one of my stories getting such a great response. I feel SO BADLY that I have not written any other Avengers fanfiction, and so, I'm going to be changing this.
Did you know that the fanfiction site is telling me that the word fanfiction isn't a word? Geez.
I went into the advanced filter in the Avengers site, sorting the stories by complete fics about Clint and Tony with the most reviews (because...uh, that's how I find stories), and lo and behold, my story was on this list for most reviewed complete Clint and Tony stories of all time. On the front page. The 10th story.
I nearly cried.
Therefore, my friends, if you come across this profile after reading Situations, well, I hope that you'll read this and know that as soon as I am done with Taken Again, I'll be taking a little siesta to come back across the fandoms and write another Avenger fanfiction. I love you.
POWA TO THE PEOPLE (I'm keeping with it).
Rant over. Thank you and have a nice life. I would hold out one of those cool top hats for tips or spare change or something, but this is the Internet, so whatever.
On Miggy Versus Fax: Miggy is cuter than Fax. Miggy makes more sense than Fax. Miggy is BETTER than Fax. I mean, I know that Fang's Max's right hand man, and there's that whole psychology on being attracted to your best friend or whatever, but Iggy is so much more...awesome. Fang has that whole tall, dark, handsome and mysterious thing going on, but when you pair the personalities together, Miggy makes more sense. Plus, they'd make cuter babies. :P
On James Patterson's MR writing: JP, JP, my man, I love you, I do, but I genuinely believe that you don't give a crap about Maximum Ride anymore. Seriously. First three books? Great. Second three books? Eh. Last couple of books? You're straining, man. I love your writing, but sometimes I feel like there are people on this site that care about and understand your characters better than you do. They don't grow. They don't have trauma. They freaking love each other way too much at the age of fourteen. My two cents have been inserted.
On Dean Winchester: -drools-
On RoboSam in Supernatural S6: Come on...did NO ONE like RoboSam as much as I did? I thought he was hilarious. Soulless Sam makes for a funnier, less gushy Sam. Though, I didn't like him so much because he made Dean look like a pansy for having a soul, and no one makes Dean look weak and gets away with it. So, yeah, souls are cool.
On Avatar (the cartoon, not the blue people thing): Airbending SLICE!
On Avenger children: No.
On reviewing: I like giving long reviews. I especially like receiving long reviews. I try to review everything I like enough. If I don't have enough to say, I don't review until I can think of something that keeps up my reputation as a humored weirdo that actually knows a little about what she's doing. If I don't like it, I won't review it, and you won't know it. Great deal for everyone. Sadly, this kind of goes the same way, so if people don't review what I write, I get this mindset that it's bad. There's also that moment when I'm too mindblown to comment, so I'll subscribe and get back to it after I learn how to speak again. If this happens, I've probably favorited it, too.
On anonymous reviewing: So, now FF has this monitoring thingy for anonymous reviewing and suchness, so if you're appropriate and not a jerkoff, I'll probably let you review. If not, I won't. I'd rather leave my self-confidence intact.
On favoriting/subscribing: Everyone who has ever favorited or subscribed to my stories, I love you, I do, it's just that letting me know that you like it, but not telling me? It's a tease, it really is. I feel bad whenever I do this to an author. Words mean everything. And a picture is worth a thousand words, so if you manage to type me a picture of a cat or something in a review, you're my new favorite person.
On dialogue: Some people just don't know how to speak anymore. You don't need to write out all of the speech modifications (y'all, somethin', I'ma, etc.), but when you write dialogue, you have to write it like you would say it. I sincerely doubt that a fifteen year old would go up to his friend and say, "Hello Ryan. How was your day? Mine was marvelous.", while the friend would say back, "My day was simply splendid, George. Let us go partake in video games together.", and then again, "How right you are, Ryan. I cannot fathom a better way to spend our hours." Don't get formal, don't get informal. Stay realistic. Okay, maybe I was exaggerating, but still.
On commas: They're my friends.
On writing style: Text talk is not writing, no matter how much you might be wired to it.
On laziness: This I understand, being lazy myself, but there is something called proofreading. And spellcheck. Everything comes with spellcheck now, guys, there's no real excuse.
On updating: If it's finished, by all means, update once a day or everyday. If you're busy, that's fine, take a couple months. I like a balance of updating every week to every other week or every three weeks-ish if I'm busy with life. Updating twice a day makes me confused. I get confused a lot.
On how people write little kids: I've met three-year-olds smarter than what almost every author depicts three-year-olds as. They also don't usually understand the deep troubles of life, so don't have them suddenly become masters of the universe on us. I still don't understand Jello.
On characterization: If you can't write the characters correctly, I become frustrated. When I become frustrated, I throw things. When I throw things, I knock over my glass of water. When I knock over my glass of water, I damage my computer. When I damage my computer, we never get updates because I'm crying in a corner. Don't not get updates because I'm crying in a corner.
On OC's: Noooooooooooo. I'm a hypocrite but noooooooooo.
On this so called "creative license": There's a point where it has to stop. There really is.
On over exaggerating: There's also a point where the fluff gets lodged in my throat and makes me gag, you know.
On people in general: You can't tell me you haven't reached that point where you can't to wherever you want to go because everyone is wandering around like lost penguins in Kansas and you curse all of humanity for your inability to fly. Come on.
On shoes: They're unnatural. My feet like to be free.
On puppies: I'm a dog person. Puppies make me squeal from their adorableness. Feel free to give me a Corgi for Christmas.
On opossums: They're demonic.
On groundhogs: I think they are the beaver's land-trapped cousin.
On beavers: I love beavers. If you've ever read Made Again, you know about my fascination.
On Biebers: Meh.
On being underground: Not really a fan.
On skydiving: Sounds fun. It's not the heights that's the scary part, or the falling, guys. It's the landing, come on.
On music: One thing that keeps me sane...ish.
On crack writing: It's fun to read, crap to write, because I feel like I've violated some law or something.
On crack: PUGS NOT DRUGS.
On being a weirdo: I think being weird is a good thing. Being a free spirit lets me look at life in ways I don't think anyone else does. I've made it my thing to walk around in bare feet when it's warm enough other than in the mall and restaurants, because, ew. That's weird, and I've been called out on it many times by my friends...but never my teachers, oddly. I've gotten stung by a bee because I stepped on it, once. Poor bumblebee, it died. ;(
This list shall grow/shrink based on my interests. My opinions will probably not change unless you're a genie.
