I've unlocked the card packs in Over the Nexus, but I've decided to wait on the novelization of it until I've finished watching all the 5Ds episodes on Hulu and writing my Reverse of Arcadia novelization.
(haha, this actually means I'm NEVER GOING TO GET TO IT. I write at a sloth's pace when it's my own stuff.)
If you're visiting my profile because I reviewed your story and are looking to review mine in return, here's a quick breakdown of what's down there. The Naruto fanfic down there was a commission from someone who liked my writing style on Gaiaonline.com and paid me in virtual goldzzz to write something involving her OC and Itachi and Deidara. She paid me for two chapters and then scarpered off without asking me to write any more. (I guess that says something about my writing ability, huh?) The Yugioh one in progress is just so I can fulfill beta reader requirements. Then there's the A:tLA, which is co-authored by VerruckVerruckt, and the Pokemon ones, which are based off a forum roleplay that I was part of. Of course, you're welcome to read and review to your heart's content.
If you're still with me after that whole spiel and are wondering how I can get away with reviewing your story the way I did when I'm obviously not a competent writer, there's something you should know. I may not be a competent writer in terms of writing fanfic, but I've read a crapload of science fiction and fantasy. I finish everything I start reading, even if it's terrible. I also have read a lot of manga and watched even more anime. I have a very definite idea of what I like, and my review of your story is based on my personal opinion. I am a very competent reader and know how to appreciate the finer points of somebody else's writing. I like to babble on about the author's word choice and how it created this kind of mood here. Other things I enjoy are deep character development. My absolute favorite thing is to know what the character is thinking and feeling about the events around them at any given moment. Some of my favorite authors for this are Mercedes Lackey, E.E. Knight, Naomi Novik, and Brent Weeks. They're great examples of how to blend dialogue, actions, and thoughts to create deep characters with layers upon layers of motivations and flaws. Now I'm babbling again, but you get the point. I always try to give constructive criticism, but my apologies if it doesn't come out sounding that way. I never try to flame anyone, honest.
I've got a degree in Deaf Studies. An accurate portrayal of what it means to be Deaf or deaf is extremely important to me. If you have no idea why I just said the same thing twice in a row, PM me and I'll happily ramble on about what I've learned in my various classes for hours - I mean, explain what I meant. If you know why I did, and think I'd be a good person to ask about whether your portrayal of a Deaf/deaf character is realistic, think again. I'm hearing, and just because I've got a degree in Deaf Studies doesn't mean I know personally what it's like to be Deaf. I can have empathy with a Deaf person's experiences, but I will never be able to understand it exactly the way they do. So go ask a Deaf person whether your character is acting appropriately or not. The most I can give you advice on is how a hearing person interacts with the Deaf world and with Deaf/deaf people and what various manifestations of audism are. If you don't know what audism is, again, PM me and I'll be glad to tell you what I know about it.
