Author has written 25 stories for Bully, Twilight, You Don't Know Me, Phantom of the Opera, Othello, Dracula, and Misc. Books.
In response to the current petitions against the admins removing rule-breaking stories, I have put up a forum to support the admins. We all agreed to the rules of this site, and we should follow them. The admins who were good enough to create this wonderful site should not be bullied into changing their standards by a boisterous minority who think they're above the rules.
I should probably mention that I mightn't be online depending on the day of the week. My exams are coming up, so I'm going to try to dedicate Monday, Thursday and Wednesday nights to revision if I can.
With that out of the way, I'm Kate, lovely to meet you. Flamers welcome. Go on, have a flame, get it out of your system. I've been on FF.net for a few months and am also on FictionPress.com under the same name at this link:http://www.fictionpress.com/u/744279/Madame_Apathy. If you want me to review or critique any of your work, then feel free to ask. I usually manage to.
I write as a hobby, although I do have these general principles where writing is concerned:
1) Always look to improve. I'm not naturally the best writer in the world. Like everyone else, I make mistakes and occasionally write twaddle. However, anyone who's trying to get better deserves praise, because looking to improve regardless of how good you are is the quickest way to become good at something, which means better fanfic for the rest of us and everyone's happy.
2) Don't beg for reviews- it's undignified. Write because you love it and you want to give people enjoyment.
3) Concrit is the nicest thing a reviewer can do for you. Personally, I love getting concrit because it's a huge compliment that someone a) thinks I have the potential to improve and b) thinks my work shows enough potential for them to want me to improve.
4) I agreed to the rules, so I shall stick with them- A few people on the site have a problem with this, but breaking them just ruins the site for everyone, not to mention that it's rude and arrogant to assume it's one rule for some and another for everybody else.
5) Don't write anything you wouldn't want your mum, kid brother or Aunt Hilary to see- That's what the sister site is for, don't put it here.
I'm also a member of the Order of the Concritters, who can be found here: http://forum.fanfiction.net/forum/Order_of_the_Concritters/84598/. I like Silent Hill, Dracula, Bully and any game that messes with my head a bit. I also like rping and have a few forums of my own, specifically this one I'm hoping to get started up soon:http://forum.fanfiction.net/forum/RPGs_and_Stories_wed_like_to_see/77316/
But enough about me. Email me if you'd like a request, to do a story together or have a chat. I promise I won't bite your head off or anything :)
https://login.fanfiction.net/pm2/post.php?rid=2695777#last - danceballet21 is a writer in the Twilight fandom who responds very well to concrit. She's got potential to do well, and writes very well.
krazygurl101: This is someone who contacted me a few weeks after I reviewed a story of hers thanking me and requesting I beta for her. She seems like a nice girl and wants to improve.
Story Priorities(Last updated June, 2011)
Just as a general guideline for what I'm going to update when.
Changeling- Thanks to everyone for giving me really good feedback on this one. I'm currently in the middle of the second chapter.
Ice Queens- I probably won't update this for a while, so don't hold your breath. However, I will try to the requests done. The next up will probably be Melody.
Of Grades and Greasers- Hell, I'm at a loss about what to do with this- take it down, keep going. Ah well, I'll see what I can do- seems a bit daft to give up 40,000 words in.
Paint You Palette- I know what I'm doing here, so this should be updated soon.
Shooting in the Dark- Getting to the end of Chapter 4.
Stupid Redheads- Again, nearly done with the next chapter.
Surviving After Jimmy- Getting there, but it's low priority.
The Nosiness Continues- See above.
The Phantom Did It- See above.
Wondrous Strange- Nearly done with the first chapter.
If I were you- Recently updated, but I don't want to go too far without Chubi. Don't expect an update for a while.
Will probably be updated within a week.
This is a story about God. Read if you believe in him, and read even if you don't.
A teenage girl about 17 named Diane had gone to visit some friends one evening and time passed quickly as each shared their various experiences of the past year. She ended up staying longer than planned, and had to walk home alone. She wasn't afraid because it was a small town and she lived only a few blocks away.
As she walked along under the tall elm trees, Diane asked God to keep her safe from harm and danger. When she reached the alley, which was a short cut to her house, she decided to take it. However, halfway down the alley she noticed a man standing at the end as though he were waiting for her. She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for God's protection. Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped round her, she felt as though someone was walking with her. When she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past the man and arrived home safely.
The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl had been killed in the same alley just twenty minutes after she had been there. Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could have been her, she began to weep. Thanking God for her safety, she decided to go to the police station. She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her story. The police asked her if she would be willing to look at a lineup to see if she could identify him. She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the alley the night before. When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed. The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was anything they could do for her. She asked if they would ask the man one question. Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her. When the policeman asked him, he answered, "Because she wasn't alone. She had two tall men walking on either side of her."
Amazingly, whether you believe or not, you're never alone. Did you know that 98 of teenagers will not stand up for God, and 93 of the people that read this won’t repost it?

This was originally a story, but I've since found that list stories are against the terms and conditions. If anyone enjoyed it, sorry for the inconvinience.

15 . If a teacher asks you "Do you think you could teach this class?" , the answer is not "yes" .
16 . If you are daft enough to answer "yes" , do not then proceed to give an hour-long lecture on pancakes .

18 . Do not go on to say that you saw him kissing Trent in the hallway .
19 . Do not go even further and say that furthermore , Christy saw him kissing Trent in the hallway .
20 . Do not then start singing "If you were gay" from Avenue Q .
21 . You are responsible for your own actions . "The Bad Idea Bears told me to do it" will not get you out of detention .
22 . If you have not had "the talk" before enrolling at the school , Mrs Peabody is not a reliable source .
23 . Neither is Earnest .
24 . Regardless of what Dr Watts tells you , Edna is not Beezlebub . No amount of crucifixes will protect you if you eat her cooking .
25 . Giving a mass outside of "Come Hither" is a bad idea , even if Mr Burton is not allowed to hurt you outside of school grounds .
26 . As Mr Burton leaves the shop , do not ask him if he will be taking communion .
27 . Do not stand on the canteen and start singing "La vie boheme" from Rent .
28 . The same applies to "It sucks to be me" from Avenue Q

54 . Do not then lose the argument .
55 . Do not do 52 in the middle of the playground
56 . "Twilight" does not offer good relationship advice . Watching Karen sleep will result in a broken nose . Pedro learnt this the hard way .
57 . You're best off not mentioning "Twilight" at all , unless of course you wish to hear Gloria's feminist soapbox rant .
58 . Gloria's feminist soapbox rants have been known to go on for up to four hours . Unless you're Constantinos , you don't want to hear her talking for this amount of time .

60 . Especially if you try to dress them up .
61 . Contrary to what Christy Martin will tell you , Ms . Phillips does not hit on the male students .
62 . Do not ask Mr Hattrick about the Korean war . He doesn't like to talk about it .
63 . Mr Burton does not like first years . Do not test this theory .
64 . If food is thrown in the canteen , your best bet is to use your tray as a shield and hide under the table . If you fight back , you are unlikely to come out of the situation unscathed .
65 . If Constantinos Brakas is smiling , it is because he's looking at Gloria . Do not take this gesture as a sign of the apocalypse .
66 . Do not hit Melody Adams . Melody will kill you , regardless of who you are .
67 . If you hear Melody says a word you don't understand when she is angered , it is fair to assume you aren't allowed to use it .

69 . Especially not while wearing Aquaberry .
70 . Kissing Jimmy Hopkins is a bad idea .
71 . Mr . Burton is not selling drugs . Do not insinuate that he is .

75 . Or "Watcha talkin' 'bout Willis?" .
76 . Do not get hold of the microphone , put on a scary voice and say "28 days... 6 hours... 42 minutes... 12 seconds. That... is when the world... will end. "
Stories I have came across that are well and truly awesome in no particular order.
1) Teen Angels - This is a Hurt/Comfort type one-shot in which Bif and Peanut realise they aren't completely different. Very well written.
2) Don't hold on too tightly - A collection of song-fics about different characters. Very entertaining.
Note: If anyone would like me to consider their story, then send me your pen-name and the title so I can have a look at it.
Favourite Characters in Bully
Lola- Don't you judge me.
Beatrice- She deserves someone nice.
Dr Slawter- So deliciously morbid.
