Author has written 22 stories for Legend of Zelda, SpongeBob SquarePants, Assassin's Creed, Breaking Bad, and Witcher.
Hello, everyone. My username, you may have inferred, is RavenGaleSpencer, formerly DiamondTopaz. You may call me Michelle. I'm 28, I have a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Graphics and a Certificate in Web Programming, although making a career of these didn't work out as I planned. I work as a seamstress for Fruit of the Loom, and in addition to writing I also cosplay as a hobby. I still dabble in some digital art from time to time, too.
Every time I pick up a new fandom, I almost inevitably get fanfiction ideas for it. I've written for the Final Fantasy and Assassin's Creed fandoms, and I always manage to get re-hooked on Legend of Zelda. I had a brief stint in the Breaking Bad fandom, but that seems pretty cooled off now. Currently I'm into Witcher, and if all goes well I'll stick with it long enough to finish my chapter story before moving on to something else.
My favorite kind of fanfiction can be described as "seamless." It works with the flow of the original source material, without changing the events or getting out-of-character. A good fanfiction should feel like an episode of the show/DLC of the game/chapter of the book/etc. it represents. Of course, a good humor fic or AU can be fun, too. :) I don't like fanfiction that completely disregards the events of the source material or the characters' personalities in the name of the author's wish fulfillment. (Often, sex.)
On that topic, I'm totally for smut. However, I'm very picky when it comes to slash. I don't hate all of it and I am most certainly not homophobic. But for me to enjoy slash, or any romance, really, I have to believe that the characters would have a valid reason to be attracted to each other. Fangirls thinking it would be oh-so kawaii-desu to see them get it on is not a valid reason.
You will never get a "Good job, can't wait to see more" review from me. I'm the type who likes to go more in-depth with reviews, including both praise and constructive criticism. Some people might not like it, but hollow praise is like candy. It might feel good, but it won't help you grow.
