Man, I haven't touched this account in ages. Used to go by 'amnothuman', hence the above joke. :P I can't guarantee that the older stuff is any good. I didn't know about trigger or content warnings back then, I think, or lots of other stuff. I'm extremely embarrassed how little I knew about Africa when I started writing Ushujaa. Still don't know as much as I prolly should.
I like to think aloud a lot, but I am not particularly attached to any sort of viewpoint, except the typical 'do not be a jackass' one. I used to be very into gritty realism, taking the worst possible view of anything, and interpreted lack of realism as a flaw but lately I've been finding more value in the absurd. I've always liked humor, though.
I am a recluse. Because people are terrifying. ...and my email is broken, but that's another story, a story of laziness.
Sooo I've been looking at my fanfic and going 'oh gods this sucks, I should have chosen to do X instead of Y'. Also find myself wishing I could turn off looking at review counts. They drive me a little nuttier than they should. :P
Particularly All the Spares. Like, there are fun ideas in there, buuut, it just requires too many in-jokes for the first chapter and... eh, I have mixed feels. On one hand, I really got tired of bashfics where Harry always succeeds at he most ludicrous things and never has things blow up in his face the way you expect and where Ron is totally useless and the greatest idiot ever. On the other, Dumbledore and Snape are still kinda assholes even at their most sympathetic, so it comes off oddly/kind of dismissive of abuse to have them as viewpoint characters. Remus as a voice of reason helped provide a fix, but he didn't come in at chapter one where he was most needed to poke sense into dumbledore/snapebeans. I think the whole thing needs a rewrite. :/ But... I am so busy with other things, it just seems a pain in the ass.
On Dragon Slayer, I feel like maybe I critiqued Hiccup a bit too strongly and made some people dislike or hate him (one person called him a spoiled brat) and, yeah, he was kind of spoiled (it was how he came off to me in fridge-logic), but he's also an oblivious teenager, and had no way of knowing him leaving would lead to so much disaster?
I guess I should be proud if I managed to put a dent in the Hiccup love, since the point of the fic was to show other characters could be interesting for once and that the whole chosen boy nerd savior thing gets old (not all versions of Hiccup use that, but some do). Still, if it made anyone feel that way, I didn't want to tip it into outright hate of Hiccup. I wanted him to be more human, rather than the guy who 'constantly tells other people they are wrong for not noticing really obvious thing that the writers intentionally wrote them as too stupid to notice'.
