What have I been up to lately?
FINALLY GOT A FULL-TIME JOB!
Playing various video games
Getting drenched by seemingly endless rainfall
1Thunderfire at your service.
Oh wow, I've finally got a full-time job! From March 27th, I'll be working as a Product Data Publisher at a very small business and will definitely now need to start learning how to drive. It's going to involve me learning a lot of stuff but at least I can now finally get my foot in the door for proper employment. (Shame I couldn't get that proofreading job which would have been absolutely perfect but I didn't expect to get it anyway.)
I, uh, guess I'll be losing my one and only proper writing place now which is a definite disadvantage. :( At some point, when I get my own place in the year 20XX, I'll have a proper space to write with a proper chair and a proper desk! That, along with driving, will be my next goal.
Thanks for your lovely reviews and PMs; where would I be without them?
Special kudos to The Cosmic Penguin. Go check out her works. :)
Personal Headcanons (updated as necessary)
Bandana Dee has always been in the Kirby franchise and was also in Kirby and the Crystal Shards as well; he was just having his bandana cleaned that day. :)
Shiver Star was mechanised by the Haltmann Works Company. It's canon that they visited Rock Star as the Holo API directly takes its plans from Pix so chances are they could have visited other planets in the Gamble Galaxy as well. And since Shiver Star is often theorised to be an apocalyptic Earth and considering how Earth is especially mechanised already... Well, let's say that HR could stand for 'Haltmann Robotics.' Meta Knight's wings can turn into a cape and back because of certain biological processes. As Kirby is the same species, this will also happen to him in the future except at a much earlier age than normal because of the necessity of him fighting from infancy. Also, the edge of the wings are highly sensitive to being stroked... if you know what I mean. XD
Common Elements I Somehow Keep Using In My Stories:
Using Flashbacks. This helps develop meaning and reasons as to why characters feel or do certain things.
Someone drinking coffee or tea. Because... I'm British?
Delicious food. Because I don't need a reason!
Weather elements, especially rain and powerful storms. Because not only do I live in Britain, I live up North where we get a lot of rain. Rain is atmospheric anyway.
Dreams/Nightmares. Often to do with how a character feels about a given situation. Or I'm just weird. And disturbing.
Stream of consciousness/broken sentences kind of stuff. Once you know about the rules of grammar, you can break them! But you must still make it interesting.
Creepy, dark moments. I personally don't go in for full horror stories/films but a little bit of horror and darkness done well makes the story all the more interesting, dramatic and gives reasons for your characters to fight on or whatever. But it must be meaningful.
Words like kinda, gonna, wanna, uhh, er, um, and words where an apostrophe replaces the letter 'g' at the end. Because this feels more realistic for certain characters and adds variety. And because, you know whatyoumacallit, it just feels right at times.
Mad laughter. Mad laughter is good.
Stuff that has honestly made you (and me) cry. BECAUSE I WANT TO FEEL YOUR HEART-WRENCHING TEARS!! (GWAHAHAHA! *cough* *splutter*)
