Author has written 9 stories for Wicked.
NOTE: I was once "DEgreeniFYgravity", but had to change my profile name.
Hey, y'all! I have decided to revise my profile, because I've now decided to come back from the dead. I've also decided to take down most of that awkward part of the profile that nobody reads where an author just blurbs about her personal life.
AWARDS (er... award): 2nd Place at 2010 Greg Awards for Best One Shot - "Poppies"
(Even though I'm not on the RPG anymore:) To everyone on the RPG: Don't hate me; just hate the Morrible living in my brain. I hate her too. But someone's got to keep her somewhere.
Awesome fanfiction people!:
Hermes- The best little brother ever! Even though we fight a lot, you are the greatest, most incredible most amazingly epic little brother I could ever ask for. You're a talented actor, writer, singer and comedian, and I know that one day we'll both end up with our extremely awkward dream roles! (Elphaba and Fiyero... in separate productions) You are so funny and you never fail to make me laugh! Your sense of humor is unique and clever, and your wit has probably gotten you into (or out of) trouble more than once. Mercury is also a great OC, *cough* which I helped you create *cough cough*. You're also the only person in the world who could randomly start singing any duet from any musical whenever I start to! We have so many great memories: watching movies, reheating frozen pizzas, singing songs from Wicked, Disney, Seussical, Fiddler on the Roof You're a Good Man Charlie Brown, and Hello Dolly! You are the greatest little brother in history, and I hope you know that!
Hedwig- My first friend on Fanfiction! Your epicness cannot be put into words! Here are all of the ways that you are completely awesome: 1) You know more musical references than I do! (this is the girl whose idea of a party is turning on the showtunes channel and singing along) 2) You invented that pathetic, beat-up pile of wood that sits in the corner of the forum (which used to be a table) for us to take out our frustration on! (just kidding! Mindy did that!) 3) You introduced me and Hermes to A Very Potter Musical, which made us both die from laughter! 4) You really are the most awesome Elphaba ever! 5) You're a grammar Nazi! *high-fives*
Jenda- The best Glinda ever! I love reading your posts, and they never fail to make me laugh! They really do make my day, and you have such a great sense of humor! And when you're Glinda, you really depict her well, and she has that great depth that a lot of people overlook, which makes her more than just funny. You were the first person to welcome me onto the forum, and your stories are great too!
Bagelba- I know you as Fiyero, since I'm not on MG's forum. But, if your Elphaba is half as good as your Fiyero on Hedwig's forum, than I know you do a great job. You are a great author, and you have a fantastic sense of humor! You are the quote queen, and will probably end up suing us all with the help of that Oz-darned Copyright Monster! You and Jenda are both hilarious, and I love watching your legal arguments and fights over posts! And you actually invented the great table of kicking!
Tabby- You have such a cool OC, and I love RPing with you! (Even if you and Hermes usually get tortured... not that I like torturing you... ugh, sorry) You're funny and smart, and I'm so glad you joined the RPG!
Gabby- Hey! Sorry you and Tabby were originally left out... *blushes* Anywho, you have the coolest OC's - Panthea and Faint, plus you're an awesome Nessa! Even if you're not on very often, neither am I! :D And we both live in *insert location*!
Carlyn- Although I would love to say that I found you wandering the desolate (virtual) streets of RPGland,and invited you to join DTL, we both know that this is not the case. You found the advertisement on one of my stories, and I gave you directions to Hedwig's RPG. But, hey; I still take credit for inviting you! You're an awesome Wizard, and I love how you can speak Spanish and a little German, and have great respect for the neglected German cast of Wicked!
Reading Prefererences (FanFiction):
I read mostly Wicked, but I also read stuff occasionally in the fairy tales section. It's hard to find good stuff sometimes, especially with fairy tales. That whole section is one big mess!
As for Wicked, I have my favorite pairings as all authors do.
I really like Fiyeraba stuff *as long as it's not overdone*. I think it's safe to say that in my opinion, there's nothing worse than super-fluffy pairings. But yes, I will admit to being an unshamed Fiyeraba addict even if I am picky.
Gloq is okay... but honestly? I mean, Boq's a cute little munchkin who runs around after Galinda, who sets him up with Nessa. I think it's really OOC to have him become all assertive and manly in order to stand up for and protect Glinda. That's the kind of stuff that makes me want to roll my eyes. I will read Gloq *IF* it's on the side or post-musical.
I quite like Bessa, however, since it's far more realistic than Gloq (at least, in the context of the musical), and I think Nessarose, although she's spoiled, is a very flawed character and her relationship with Boq is actually very complex.
F(a)linda I'm not into, but I like one-sided stuff with that pairing. I find it rather funny, and occasionally sad, when told from Glinda's POV.
I'm not into Gelphie. Although I read it sometimes and I'll read "implied" fics for that pairing, it's just not my cup of tea. But I love a great friendship story! Those are very easy for me to identify with, and one of my favorite Wicked songs is, and always will be, "For Good." It's a very strong, deep friendship between two very different women and it's really nice to get a break from romance and read stuff like that. :) Chenzel? Chenzel?! You've got to be kidding me. Write about Gelphie, sure, whatever floats your boat, but that's just... creepy. And if there's any Menzel/Butz stuff out there... well, that goes for you too.
I'm not big on A/U stuff, but I read it sometimes. Mostly, I like to stick to the plot. Stories set at Shiz, Intermission fics, sequels, and parodies are typically what I read.
Congratulations! You've made it to the end of my profile! Which makes you a really cool person! My stories are all below and please review!
