Hi everyone! Jasmine here! I really suck at making profiles like this, but here it goes!
Some stuff about me: I'm relatively new to fanfiction, have enjoyed reading it long before I started writing it. So be nice :P
Gender: Female ;)
Age: I'm a college junior, so that should give you a good idea.
Location: NY, USA - currently shuffling between home and college; oddly I do more writing at school than at home when I actually have the time, go figure!
Family: I'm the oldest of three; have one sister and one brother.
Major: I'm actually an English major with a concentration in Publishing and a minor in Media Studies with a concentration in Journalism - I want to become an editor one day, so anyone needing a beta/editor, let me know! It's good practice! :)
Hobbies: (Besides writing fanfiction of course!) The big one is reading, both fiction books and fanfictions. As for published book genres, I tend to read mostly fantasy, though I do also enjoy mysteries and romances. Next I'd have to say playing video games - I have a PS2, XBox360, GameCube, DS among older consoles, and really love the Tales and Legend of Zelda series. Other then that, school and my job keep me pretty busy - I have a parttime job that takes up my weekends and all breaks.
Favorite pairings for some of the above anime/games:
Tales of the Abyss - LukexAsch is the big one for this, another boyxboy pairing. Others I like: LukexTear, GuyxNatalia, IonxSync, AschxNatalia
Kingdom Hearts - AxelxRoxas. I have to admit I'm not that far into the games, but from my roommate's obsession and reading fanficition, I know the basic story, and have grown to love them!
So, yeah, can't think of much else to tell you. Keep reading and I hope you like it!
My Fics: As for updating, my idealistic goal is an update once a week, while my realistic goal is an update once a month. I do update as often as possible, I promise. I tend to write large chunks, though, and then edit them down into FF chapters, which adds time to my updating process. For example, in my story BFAC, I'll write a whole day in Lloyd's POV, which'll be about 20K, before I edit it and cut it into 3-4 FF chapters to post. But don't worry, I'm working on it and trying my best to update fast! Promise!
Unconditional: Summary: (Tales of Symphonia) The end of the game if it was Zelloyd. Lloyd's POV. Follows game events from Flanoir Doctor scene to end, plus some aftermath. ZELLOYD. Zelos Lloyd. LEMON in last chapter. This is the first fic I ever wrote - it was supposed to just be a one-shot blurb for a friend's birthday that expanded massively. The writing is crap, I know, but my friend convinced me to post it, so here it is.
A Secret Revealed: Summary: (Tales of Symphonia) ZELLOYD oneshot. The group travels to make the next pact on their list. But what happens when Zelos and Lloyd room together and noises can be heard by all? Lemon-scented. This is just a one-shot that stuck in my head for a while until I finally wrote it down. It's kinda fluffy, but fluff can be cute. :)
How Do You Love Someone?: Summary: (Tales of Symphonia) Zelos is in love and turns to Sheena for help. As Zelos and his crush go on their first date, Sheena follows, camera in hand… Warning: boyxboy pairing. Another one-shot. The ending kinda sucks because I just couldn't make Sheena evil. This was inspired by the song 'How Do You Love Someone' by Ashley Tisdale.
A Picture Worth 1,000 Words: Summary: (Tales of Symphonia) Zelos laughed as he ran to show the others what he had found Lloyd hiding. What is it and why is Lloyd so upset? Friendship Zelos and Lloyd fic, although can also be read as yaoi. Dedicated to green ninja93. Another oneshot. This one is for my awesome reviewer. It's just a cute Zelos/Lloyd friendship fic, although the ending could be hinting at something more! :D
You Still Have All Of Me: Summary: (Kingdom Hearts) It's been months, but the pain isn't any duller; this isn't any easier. Why? Why did you leave me? SongFic. Axel POV. Warning: Contains Character Death. I cried writing this one-shot. I was in the cafeteria at school and the song My Immortal by Evanescence came on and I immediately thought of this. This is my frist real song fic, and the saddest / angsty-iest thing I've ever written.
Guess What?: Summary: (Kingdom Hearts) Sora's and Roxas' boyfriends ignore them at a party. Sora comes up with a plan to get their attention back. Random, insane one-shot. AxelxRoxas, RikuxSora. This is just a short random drabble I wrote in a moment of boredom that my roommate insisted I post. Kinda silly, kinda fluffy. It's supposed to be one of those random things you read that make you smile. :)
The Pink Frilly Apron: Summary: (Kingdom Hearts) Actually has little to do with the pink frilly apron. A fic so sweet it'll give you a cavity. A oneshot of Axel and Roxas featuring the love they share and dreams coming true. AkuRoku, side Zemyx. Birthday giftfic for mumblybee. Happy Birthday Spoons! This is the sweetest/fluffiest thing I've ever written! Be prepared to go 'aww' several times while reading!
The Day that Some Things Happened: Summary: (Kingdom Hearts) Once upon a time, there were some stalkers, and some crazy people, and some slightly less crazy people, and other people who did things like bake and have motorcycles and stuff. It was pretty cool. This is an RP between myself and Cami (Darkness-Chill). It is slightly insane, as expected, with a wide range of characters and pairings. Good luck guessing who RP'd who!
Best Friends Are Chosen: Summary: (Tales of Symphonia) What if Lloyd and Sheena are the Chosen Ones? Loosely follows game plot-points, but with Lloyd and Sheena as the Chosens! Alternating Lloyd and Sheena POVs. Finally, my latest creation! This is, by far, the longest thing I've ever written. EVER. Seriously, it's massive and not even 1/8 of the way through! So, I got this idea around October and couldn't get it out of my head - I started imagining all the things that would change if Lloyd and Sheena were Chosens, and how certain scenes would play if that was true. Then I thought about the logistics - how would this work with Sheena as the assassin and Kratos as Kratos (don't want to give away the spoiler - for all those who know the storyline, you know what I mean)? November was rapidly approaching and this idea wouldn't leave, so I decided to use it for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month for those who don't know) and I actually won. With editing, we're pretty much at the end of what I wrote for NaNoWriMo and I have to actually write now for each update, instead of just edit.
I started with a bare-bones outline of what I wanted to happen and whose POV to use for each part (I decided to just stick to Lloyd and Sheena, so once they cross paths, I had to choose who would voice each scene), and then totally confused myself and had to do a slightly more detailed timeline so I knew when everything was happening. Then my roommate and I covered our college dorm with computer paper and made a map of Sylvarant, Tethe'alla, and Derris Kharlan. We made a sticky note of every character - and I mean every character, however minor - and put them their respective towns (though my roommate loves making side story-lines and moving them around just to bug me). Heck, we even made a boat, and a Rheaird is in the works! It definitely helped with the writing, though, because I felt more accomplished when I could move the sticky notes around as the plot developed. And trust me, the look on our friends' faces when they first saw it were definitely worth the hour+ it took to do! :D Now that it's winter break, however, I'm home which means I don't have my map and character to stare at (Mizuho was above my bed and we constantly joked that if the sticky notes fell in the night, I'd be attacked by ninjas), so it's harder to write right now. But I'm trying, I promise. Also, our map has helped my roommate (Darkness-Chill) with her own TOS story, Fated for Forever. Check it out here:http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4247806/1/Fated_for_Forever Basically? Martel's the one who lived and Mithos is the one who died. Since our stories are completely different universes from each other but we're using the same sticky notes for planning, there's some interesting crossover... :)
Whew, that's probably the longest summary/explanation thingy I've ever written. Go figure. To all those who actually took the time to read it, thank you! And to those who skipped straight to the stories... I hope you review! Reviews make me all glow-y inside. :)
