Author has written 2 stories for Fushigi Yuugi, and Teen Titans.
If I rate your story, I use this scale:
Most fairly good fics on FFnet are about a 7, some lower or higher. Only about 2 percent of fics are a 9 or higher. I can go for months not seeing a 10. A 6 is what happens if a 17 year old proofs a draft of a fairly good story once and posts without really reworking it. A 4 or 5 is normally written by someone under 14, or very lazy.
My writing is about 7.5 to 8, suffering mostly from a few minor errors and a lack of plot or originality. Most good published novels are 8 to 8.5 (most books are more like 6 or 7). A bit of proofing and added narration can easily boost a good story from mangled 6 to a polished 7.5.
FY - Tsukareta - not actually dead, I'm working on this bit by bit
Teen Titans - A different Betrothed : likely 7 or so chapters
Danny Phantom - Danny/Ember story: 7 chapters minimum
Naruto - NaruTema story (Naru-Ino friendship)
Detective Academy Q - Kyu/Yukihira Sakurako (6 or more chapters)
Star Trek: Voyager - Paris/Seven
Buffy fic, with a bit of Hellsing - Spike/Willow, refers to Alucard/Seras
Gundam Wing - Heero/Hilde fic at about 55 pct.
WITCH - Promise -: Phobos/Will and Caleb/Elyon, 3 to 6 chapters
Kim Possible - Himitsu - Ron/Shego at least 2 chapters: (refers to Ron w/ Bonnie, Tara, Yori, etc)
Inuyasha - Sesshoumaru/Kagome story at least 3 chapters:
My favorite animes/mangas are TOKKO, Detective Conan (Case Closed), Detective Academy Q, Inukami, Hellsing, Bleach, Evangelion, Rebirth, Psychic Academy, Hagane Renkinjitsushi (FMA), Naruto, Furikuri (FLCL), Gundam Wing, Teen Titans, or any with quiet, obsessive, violent or evil boys figuring prominently in their plot. I like characters I can identify with. =) And redheaded girls with cat ears and tails, can't go wrong with those.
Some of my favorite quotes from fanfics:
"They say that blood is thicker than any steel. In our case it is a chain that manacles us together in an everlasting web spiraling down into nothingness."
"Your questioning of the obvious exceeds my expectations.”
"Are you finished being dramatic now sir? Your 'Cup O'Noodles' is getting cold."
"I am not a jerk," he said eying Isane disdainfully. "Neither am I psychopathic. If anything I am a highly aggressive, deviously smart, homicidal sociopath with very little hold on my inhibitions."
Spike glared at him, and then glanced back to Xander and Faith. “I’m not insane,” he said. “Not really. I’ve been insane. This isn’t at all like it.”
“Yeah….and if olive oil comes from olives, then where does baby oil come from?” Bloo mused out loud.
“ahahahahaack…Damn evil cackling irritating my throat.” Orochimaru said as he entered into a coughing fit courtesy of his evil cackling.
"You may have deflected my attacks by turning into a human top. Try deflecting this. Shizen Kuchiyose no Jutsu – WHAT THE &?"
“Take your time. I want to create the appearance that I’m soft, feminine and lovable. And if you don’t pull that off, I’ll dark blast you until next week.” Raven threatened.
Raven nodded lightly and looked down. "And I'm sorry for trying to club you like a baby seal."
Tatsuki looked back and forth throughout Ichigo and Rukia's discussion. Listened to their conversation. Her mind thought back to Rukia's reluctance in parting from Ichigo. Her demanding talk. Ichigo reluctantly obeying her commands and her frazzled mind made a rather rash conclusion, she would later realize.
It was one thing to be the probing intellect doing the analyzing. It was another altogether to have some wind-tossed, dewey-eyed little optimist regarding him with enough compassion and understanding to make him want to throttle her.
“Sorry, if I underestimated the vastness of your stupidity,” Kagura said.
"Or he could just be being paranoid...oh but what fun it would be to send them a dead whore..."
"I have made a conclusion that I am the only sane person here."
"Chi-chi, if you put aside the fact that Vegeta tried to kill Goku and Gohan, and blow up the world, what do you think of him as a person?"
“I’m getting my laundry done by Robin of the Teen Titans,” Jinx said, “At this point, I’m figuring I’m in a fever dream.”
“Oh look, monsters!” called out Hay-Lin pointing towards the ground. “Look how many there are—and they’re all waving their swords at us! That’s such a cool greeting. Wave back.”
"Ranma want try the ramen?" the girl asked hopefully.
"You must be under the misunderstanding that I care. Let me fix that immediately: I don't. "
"Forgive InuYasha, Kagome, he doesn't mean to be such a clod. He is just insecure right now. Once he gains the full use of Tetsusaiga he will feel better. Then he will have to come up with new excuses for being a clod."
“No, your brother’s just an asshole,” Chichi said with a roll of her eyes. “Vegeta’s a sly, shrewd asshole with a certain degree of intelligence which actually makes him more of a bastard than an asshole.”
Anyway the point is I’m not prepared to live with the guilt knowing that if I hadn’t let you out of my front door, you wouldn’t be lying face down in a gutter with a stab wound in your abdomen.”
"Well they're obviously deranged to start a shoot out in broad daylight!" Ayame said under her breath.
"If you touch me, I will fuckin blow you to pieces with star bolts." Starfire said, rather angrily.
An extension of Raven’s auric powers wrapped around him and squeezed, he was out of his pelt in a heartbeat crying for help.
“Hey! Shut it, boss. What all we’re doing is passing into Swednborgian’s Space then through the deeper Umbra, find our way to the Gate of Anubis and defeat the immortal guard there and get the key, pass over the River of Blood and through the Seven Circles of Hell, solve the Riddle of the Elements, pass through the Gate of Lost Souls, over the edge of the world and then into Tartarus. We do the same on the way back. It’ll be a walk in the park. I’ll bring snacks." “No.” Robin stated solidly. “We aren’t going to let you any of you throw your lives away.”
Twenty-four hours ago, Tsukune was worried that his life for the last ten years was the product of a cruel prank played by an indifferent Universe. Since his arrival at Youkai Academy, his worry evaporated with the certainty that the Universe was not apathetic to his plight. He knew now, with a conviction that bordered on religious fervor, that the Universe hated him with a fury that dwarfed the death throes of red giant in final collapse.
Chip gave his little bud a weak smile, “Maybe. They do say that love isn’t for the faint of heart. Maybe all I’ve gotta do is keep trying? Yeah,” he seemed struck by a sudden surge of confidence, “I’ll wear her down! Chip Skylark will get the girl!”
"Now you listen to me..."She began, her voice going dangerously low, reminding him of a once homicidal Gaara. "I have been chained to a guy that has half the continent after his head. I have just fought off two missing nins, pretended to be kidnapped, walked away from my home, walked through this godforsaken desert, dealt with an extremely creepy Kazekage and I am now three inches away from killing you in the most painful way you can imagine. So you have about three seconds to step aside or I will make you." She snarled as an added effect.
“Naruto, don't! This guy is way out of our-” What the hell am I saying?! This guy could get rid of that idiot for me! Even I fail the exam it's a small price to pay! “Do your best!”
“Look Sasuke,” he said, pointing with his thumb, “It's Akamaru and his pet, Kiba.”
"Kiba..." Shino's shades sparkled in the light of one of the spotlights, "This team's ladiesman, is me."
"Look! A distraction!"
"Oh, of course." Will rolled her eyes. "I've got a magical amulet hidden under my shirt that has the power to close portals between two different worlds, and my four best friends and I are magical super-heroes. I'm one hard-core skeptic."
Scowling, his secretary stalked toward Ed's prone form, now nearly buried under the debris of a once whole desk.
“Never mind,” said Shinji, as he reached back into his backpack, pulling out a small key ring. “Looks like a Beta-7 series,” he muttered, as he went through a ring full of similar keys.
“I hate the way you dress, the way you eat, the way sigh in your put upon manner like the world isn’t good enough for you.” Nabiki screamed, advancing with each proclamation. “I hate the way you cry over things like Kuno and the horde, and yet go back for more from them. I hate the way you place yourself on a pedestal you don’t deserve to be on. And I especially hate the way you act put upon by my attempts to strike a legitimate friendship with the man I may have to marry someday.” “I hate you, and everything you stand for. I hate you for every simple minded thought that’s dancing through that empty head of yours.” Nabiki hollered, shoving Akane back against the door. “I hate you for your unbearable attention whoring, your condescending attitude and that stupid ‘pervert’ bullshit!”
"It is my fondest desire to bust a host of caps into multitudes of personages."
They say, 'Before you criticise someone, walk a mile in their shoes.
Purple: "You've been assigned to the planet Blorch, home of the slaughtering rat-people."
Purple: "Besides, no invader has ever been so -very small. You're very small Zim... You're a tiny thing." Red: "You will be sent toa planet so mysterious, no one has even heard of it."
Zim: "Umm, is it supposed to be stupid?"
"Sorry about imprisoning you and turning you into a media freak, honey. It was in the name of science and -- hey, where's your brother?"
"What you need to do is give the Game Slave to me, or I will plunge you into a nightmare world from which there is no waking."
"Why is always monkeys? Why can't I be attacked by crazed supermodels?"
"When nothing makes sense, I'll fight believing only in myself."
"Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven."
Out of the window,
"No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country.
Will: You want me to find this?
Lord Beckett: Loyalty is no longer the currency of the realm. I'm afraid currency is the currency of the realm.
Jack Sparrow: I'm a dishonest man. And a dishonest man, you can always trust to be dishonest. Honestly. But it's those honest ones you need to look out for.
Jack Sparrow: You cannot let him near the chest, man, trust me on this. You can mistrust me less than you can mistrust him. Trust me.
"Charlie: Nice shooting.
(guns fire in the distance)
"Unfortunately, this was not enough to appease the bloodthirsty psychic vampires at Limitless Horizons Entertainment LLC, and they launched after us like a cruise missile once somebody literate read to them what we had to say about their game." - Something Awful article,
My preferred fanfic pairings are unusual. I like redheads and troublemakers, not the goody-goody sissy girls; and those yaoi fangirls can burn in hell, writing 75 percent of all males to be flaming gay and teaching me that there is such a word as "twincest."
