Author has written 17 stories for Wrestling.
Updated: 7/19/13- Oh, silly Misha, where have you been? It's been almost two months since you updated ANYTHING! The answer is, sadly, that I've been dealing with a deep depression, a lack of desire to write, a complete feeling of worthlessness, and the overwhelming desire to sleep my life away. In other words, I haven't touched anything, writing wise, in the past two months. I won't get too far into why, but suffice it to say that every drop causes a ripple and every ripple has the ability to build up into a wave, which becomes a tsunami, which will sometimes eat your house... even if you live waaay too far inland for that to seem possible. I'm still planning on finishing everything that I haven't yet, but it's going to take me some time to swim my way out of this ocean that suddenly appeared and tried to destroy me. The words are there, somewhere, waiting for me to free them again. As soon as I'm done making a boat, I'm going fishing for words and muses...
Currently writing: Chapter 88 of Mizard/Odd, chapter 5 of Mizard/Wonderland, chapter 30 of Walkin' After Midnight, chapter 22 of Devil Inside and...? :P
Planning: Something new! I'm almost in the mood to write, and a great idea came to me at work the other night. Now if I only had the energy...
Profile Pic: Zack (left) and Christian (right). They're getting so big!
Team Adorkable: The first series I wrote for FanFiction.net. It's written in first person, present tense. The story starts with Dirty Deeds, which is followed by Something to Believe In, then the three shot Gravity, and will finish up with Devil Inside. The narrators are Michelle McCool (Dirty Deeds/Gravity chapter 1), CM Punk (Something to Believe In/Gravity chapter 3) and Matt Hardy (Gravity chapter 2/Devil Inside).
Mizard: Not so much a series as two stories, loosely related by the characters. Mizard of Odd is my mind working through its' issues. ;P Mizard in Wonderland is my homage to Lewis Carroll. They can be read in any order, together or not (although you might be confused about Pixie and Betsy in Wonderland if you haven't read at least the first half of Odd).
Bio: Writing is the heart and soul of my life. To me, the imagination trumps everything. Creativity is the key ingredient to my happiness, whether that creativity is mine or someone else's. I love to read and watch movies and listen to music. I have a weird sense of humor. I love my family and would lay down my life for them. But first I'd probably write about it, if there was time.
I am hugely obsessive. I find something and latch onto it and don't let go. I try to keep the balance up, so that I'm not only talking about one thing. Currently, my obsession is wrestling. A typical conversation with me sounds something like this: "Writing, stuff, writing, wrestling, wrestling, writing, other stuff, wrestling, writing." It can make a "normal" person crazy, trying to get to the "stuff" parts of the conversation around the writing and wrestling bits. From time to time the obsessions change, but wrestling has been holding on for two years and writing has had a hold on me since I was five. I honestly don't see either of them petering off any time soon.
I've been writing here for three years. Before that, the closest I got to fanfic a was a grown-up Dora the Explorer as a DEA agent thing for NaNo... No, really. Don't ask. I'm still not sure what I was thinking.
I try not to take myself too seriously. The rest of the world is good at doing that, so why do I need to do it, too?
I'm sure I'll still be telling stories on my deathbed. Typing them, if someone sneaks my laptop in for me.
No, I'm NOT on drugs... Why do you ask? :P
About me: (AKA more information than you'd ever want to know. ;P)
Name: Misha (Around here, anyway.)
Age: Old enough to know better...?
Birthday: September 28, which makes me a Libra. Yay!
Relationship status: Currently single. :)
Location: Somewhere in the US. Even I don't know anymore.
Pets: Two dogs and a clowder of cats, most of whom are named after wrestlers.
Musical Taste: Varies. My MP3 player currently has Sum 41, Stone Sour, Oasis, Linkin Park, All Time Low, Jimmy Eat World, Owl City, Stabbing Westward, Skillet, Everclear, Disturbed, Fallout Boy, Coldplay, Boys Like Girls, Yellowcard, Eve 6, Our Lady Peace, Third Eye Blind and All American Rejects on it. I listen to rock, pop, country, oldies, emo and whatever else appeals to me. Currently, my laptop has my Stone Sour playlist on repeat.
Likes: Writing, reading, watching wrestling, my pets, photography, music, thinking weird thoughts, peaches, sleeping
Dislikes: Annoying neighbors, stress, pushy people, manipulators, my ex, reality :P
Started writing: Practically at birth. I remember my mom writing new captions in a coloring book for me around age three. When I learned how to form letters myself, it was all over.
Sex scenes?: Not really. I hate writing them. I'm not a prude; I'll read them, but I'm okay without them, too. And I've yet to write slash. It's just not my thing, writing-wise.
Description or dialogue?: I'm a dialogue writer all the way. I suck at descriptions, but dialogue is FUN. That's just how my brain works.
Planner/plotter or organic writer?: Organic, definitely. Plotting kills creativity for me, and makes it impossible for me to write. I make it up as I go along because I have to. The characters run the story and until they tell me what to write, I have no idea where things are headed. I usually start a story with a basic idea, characters and maybe some semblance of the ending. Sometimes I only know the first line, or one scene in the middle. It makes for some interesting writing, let me tell you. It also means I have to proof my chapters on the fly before they get posted. I try to keep a couple chapters ahead before posting, but a bad case of writer's block has made that hard recently.
Muse(s): What's funny is I have a ton of muses, but only one of them does FanFic. Her name is Pip, and when she's around, the other muses make themselves scarce. (What? I'm not on drugs! And I'm only a little crazy, and mostly harmless to boot.)
Favorite writing theme: Redemption, definitely.
Top five favorite wrestlers: The Miz, Randy Orton, Chris Jericho, C.M. Punk and Christian (YAY! He's gone heel!) - Heels are so much more interesting than faces.
Top five wrestlers I don't like: Great Khali, Mark Henry, Kane, Alberto Del Rio (blah, blah, blah...) and HHH (unless he's being funny with Shawn Michaels- then he's awesome) - What can I say? I bore easily. :P
Five wrestlers I used to hate, but don't anymore: Ironically, Randy Orton, Chris Jericho, C. M. Punk, Jack Swagger and R Truth (Crazy heel R Truth? Where was he when I started writing Mizard?)
Five wrestlers I used to like, but no longer do: Kofi Kingston, John Morrison (without Miz, he's nothing!), Rey Mysterio, Drew McIntyre (pretty but way misused) and Wade Barrett.
Wait! What about Divas?: I like most of them well enough. I was a huge Mickie James fan, and I liked Maria a lot. I like Michelle McCool better than I did before the Team Adorkable stuff.
WWE or TNA?: WWE! Although I can safely say that there are some things that TNA does better. Like tag teams. But geez, some of the crap both companies will put on the air... :/
What's with all the C.M. Punk stuff?: My Punk character is the most fun for me to write. It seems like every time there's a story idea, my muse suggests Punk. I keep trying to write things without him, but then he thinks I don't love him anymore, so he shows up and steals the show. :P Punk is kind of a pain like that.
Live shows?: I've been to a few, but my favorite was Wrestlemania 26. :D
What would you like to write that you haven't yet?: Since I'm working on the WWE/Wonderland crossover now, I'm going to have to think up something else to put here. Maybe more song fics or contests or something.
Why do you have two versions of what's basically the same story with different endings (Fireflies and Lightning Bugs)?: I've sort of answered that in Lightning Bugs. Basically, that's the original version of Fireflies. I was challenged to write fluff and instead I got Lightning Bugs. So I changed the beginning a little, found the spot where it turned dark on me and went from there.
Why are you updating your profile instead of writing?: Uh... no comment.
Is your stupid intro over yet?: Yes, yes it is. =.=
