Author has written 11 stories for I Am Legend, Aliens/Predator, Transformers, Five Nights at Freddy´s, and How to Train Your Dragon.

AS OF 11/29/2017, I HAVE A NEWBORN BABY TO TAKE CARE OF. UPDATES WILL BE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN, BUT I'LL TRY TO GET CHAPTERS AND UPDATES OUT WHEN I CAN. I'm working on publishing some original content! I update my patron page every Wednesday with chapters and other goodies. My current patrons are Tobi, Luke, and Tonya. My url extension is /kaylanhodge.

I am not taking writing requests! Unless it's specifically for Noctuary or Private Collection, please don't contact me with ideas for fics. I don't have the time or energy. Sorry.

Hello, readers!

Crayola here, coming at ya live from my bedroom, drinking Dr. Pepper and wearing nothing but some pajamas. I'm a 26-year-old married woman who enjoys writing and reading fanfiction. Among other things.

My fanfictions were originally just for my eyes (I only ever really planned to share We Are Legends) but a few years ago, Citrine Nebulae and I met by chance on the NaNoWriMo site. She happened to notice I was writing a Predators fanfic and contacted me to tell me to share it. I was actually pretty embarrassed by my fanfics, thinking they probably weren't normal, but after reading some others around the site in my written fandoms, I realized it was actually pretty common to see the pairings and plots that I liked to write for! Without Citrine, I probably never would have posted anything on here at all and just let this account continue to wither away, so please be sure to show her some love if you're glad I started posting stuff!

I work at PetSmart about 30 hours a week, then I play various video games so between that and writing fanfiction I'm pretty boring. Don't do a whole lot. I read way more fanfiction than I maybe should but who cares. The main fandoms I lurk in are Gargoyles, Transformers, HTTYD, and AVP. I'll check on whatever fandom I feel like at the time, though. Like for instance I grew a stray hair and read a couple pieces from Cloverfield. I'm pretty into OC stories rather than focusing solely on canon characters, and I try to review everything I read!

Be warned, though. I review the way I want to be reviewed so it'll go like this: if I notice a plot hole, I'm going to point it out. If I notice you broke character, I'll point it out. If you do something I'm not a fan of, I'll let you know (I'll always let you know that's just my opinion, though). If you've completely ignored canon so you can do whatever you want, I'm going to gripe about it. Yes, there is such a thing as creative liberty, but let me just remind you that Dragonball: Evolution and The Last Airbender were also practicing creative liberty and see how that worked out? Do you want me to compare you to those two things? Because I might. This does not mean I HATE your story or that I think you're a bad person. It just means I think you made terrible decisions and you should reflect upon them. I hope that someone would do the same thing for me so I can better myself as a writer. However, that also means that if I like your story, I'm going to tell you about it in no less than 200 words haha. You're gonna hear about all the things I like and all the things I dislike.

Above all, I try to write with a sense of realism. My stories can get dark, they can be light-hearted, but above all, I try to make it feel like something that could actually happen. Just because it's sci-fi or fantasy doesn't mean you can toss out how the world works, especially if it takes place on Earth. I hold canon as high as possible and try to stick to the rules of the fandom I'm writing in. If new information comes out, I adjust my headcanon accordingly instead of saying "well frick canon I'm gonna keep my headcanon no matter what!" because that's how the original creator wants it, so who am I to ignore them (canon character personalities/relationships, Namekians are only males, etc). I'll try to put my own personal spin on it, of course, but I try not to change much within the canon rules ("saving" a MINOR character that was killed off and otherwise doesn't dramatically affect the plot, adding OCs, etc).

Thanks for visiting! Below I have some neat tidbits and various things about my stories! I'll try to update this as I come up with stuff, but let's be real here I'm not very reliable.

You can also read most of my stuff on AO3, too.

The Unforgotten by A.S. Gemar reviews
The sequel to Cold Hands, by popular demand! She was a pet. That much was very clear to her. He was like one of those eccentric pet owners, and she was his beloved dog. He trained her, and if she knew what was good for her, she would obey. Adjusting to the life of an alien hunter was going to be difficult, especially since others of his kind aren't so keen about his new 'pet.'

Daydream reviews
This 13-year-old fic is where it all started. Phantasm is what it is because of this story. Daydream is old. It's poorly written. It's full of aliens and predators and really bad plot points. However, without it (no matter how bad it actually may be) we wouldn't have Phantasm and the story of Nichole and Wolf. So, strap in, and prepare to cringe. A lot. Not a serious fic.
