Hi Everybody! Welcome to my profile! Not really much to see here, I guess, but make yourselves at home anyway. Here we have info about my current stories, below that is information about me. Near the bottom you'll find some random copy 'n' paste thingies, and way up in the corner on the left is the PM button, in case you have any questions.
My latest story is my first foray into the fandom of The Vampire Diaries: Red Queen. It's Klaroline, but also deals a lot with the character development of Caroline as an individual, as she matures as an immortal. I've had this idea knocking around in my head ever since I saw Oh Come All Ye Faithful, and now after quite some time of me jotting down notes and forgetting about it for months at a time, I've actually crafted an outline, and a plot, and started writing actual chapters. I can't promise regular updates, by any stretch of the imagination; those of you who've followed my stories previously know this by long and painful experience, I'd imagine... '-_- The plotline will follow the established TVD plot in some places pretty closely, and thus contain spoilers. In other places, the plot will deviate completely from canon, and stray into the uncharted waters of my imagination. (Be afraid--be very afraid!)
Concerning Sister of the Wind, the Sequel: Okay... I have like the first three chapters for this drafted, and a vague outline for the rest of it, and a massive collection of scenes and snippets that all make sense inside my head, but nowhere else. It's a huge project, so I don't want to start posting it before I get really far writing it, because--as you probably already know, if you're familiar with me--I tend to have long periods of inactivity.
Concerning Code Geass: Legacy: Yeaaaaaaaah... Okay, I have bunnies for this, but no workable plot. Yet. I hope to do it someday, but it's not something that's gonna turn up in your email next month or anything.
Concerning Rebirthing: I haven't abandoned this--I really haven't! I just haven't written anything for it in... months. Like... 22 months. Yeah. Not really sure what to say about that--my mom really liked that one, and gets mad at me when I work on other fics, because I'm not writing that one, haha!
About me! I am female, 21 years old, and about to finish my sophomore year in college, majoring in English. I have a job in retail management, and between the job and school, I really shouldn't have time to work on fanfiction. However, for some wack-a-doodle reason, I'm only motivated to write fanfiction when I'm supposed to be doing something else of vital importance, so I churn out my best stuff between midterms and finals each semester. If I ever want to make it as a career author, I'll have to take non-credit classes at community college or something, just to get myself to write... Oh the drama that is being me!
One little thing that I feel like I need to clarify for absolutely everybody who reads my stories: I usually have messages to discourage flaming, but I define a flame as "pointless hate." If you hate my stuff and you have reasons, PLEASE, feel absolutely free to tell me in detail, and you do not have to sugar-coat if you're not inclined to do so. I'm a grown-up, I'm majoring in this stuff, and I can take criticism--you will not make me cry, promise.
"Your characters were so OOC, and your plotline was hard to follow--I kept getting lost. I was outright bored in the part where they were supposed to kiss. The dialogue is really cheesy. You spend too much time describing the characters' clothes and appearances, and not nearly enough time on the features of the scene that are actually important to the plot." This is someone who hates my story, but it's not a flame--it's constructive criticism. That's fine and dandy, and those are all possibly valid points that I as a writer would then need to look at.
A flame would be this kind of thing: "This is a shitty story--u should delete it." I have received reviews like that, and they make me crazy, because the person usually doesn't have the B@!!$ to sign into their own account when doing it, so I can't respond unless I want to make all of my readers suffer through my retort. They tend to have shoddy grammar and spelling, and I've had people swear at me who DON'T KNOW HOW TO SWEAR. (If you're going to use rude sexual slang, you should first ask yourself if you know what the term actually means, and if it has anything whatsoever to do with the situation at hand--even remotely. I can't decide if it's hilarious or infuriating to have someone call me "a f@& who can't rite," when the story was about a male-female couple, and at least I know the difference between a story--something you write--and a ritual--a rite. I mean, of the wealth of insults and profanity available in the English language, why choose that one? Sigh...
Now, please don't misunderstand: I don't analyze or judge people's mechanics when I read normal reviews, or even most stories, unless it's distracting. Everybody on here is growing and maturing as a writer/reviewer, and I totally respect that. But, if you're going to go that far in hatred of my writing, don't you think you should have to prove that you're better at it than I am? So I mostly laugh a lot, think up many fantastically creative retorts that I can't send to anonymous parties, and finally delete the flame, since I can DO that with anonymous reviews. So, what all of this is to say is, don't waste your time and mine if you don't really have anything to say. "If you're going to be bad, be bad with purpose. I do bad things to get things done--you do them to be a dick." --Damon Salvatore, paraphrase mine.

Great, the voices in my head learned how to speak Japanese and now I can't understand them.
Actual Product Labels that Scare Me (From Mangascribbler-san's profile)
On a Sears hairdryer: "Do not use while sleeping." (oh no! but that's the only time I have to work on my hair!)
On another hairdryer: "Do not use while in the shower." (yeah...this one makes sense!)
On a bag of Fritos! "You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside." (the shoplifter special?)
On a bar of Dial soap: "Directions: Use like regular soap." (and that would be...how?...)
On some Swanson frozen dinners: "Serving suggestion: Defrost." (but, it's "just" a suggestion).
On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom): "Do not turn upside down." (well...duh, a bit late, huh?!)
On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding: "Product will be hot after heating." (...and you thought?...)
On packaging for a Rowenta iron: "Do not iron clothes on body." (but wouldn't this save me more time?)
On Boot's Children Cough Medicine: "Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication." (We could do a lot to reduce the rate of construction accidents if we could just get those 5-year-olds with head-colds off those forklifts.)
On Nytol Sleep Aid: "Warning: May cause drowsiness." (and...I'm taking this because?...)
On most brands of Christmas lights: "For indoor or outdoor use only." (as opposed to...what?)
On a Japanese food processor: "Not to be used for the other use." (now, somebody out there, help me on this. I'm a bit curious.)
On Sunsbury's peanuts: "Warning: contains nuts." (talk about a news flash!)
On an American Airlines packet of nuts: "Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts." (Step 3: maybe, uh...fly Delta?)
On a child's superman costume: "Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly." (I don't blame the company. I blame the parents for this one.)
On a Swedish chainsaw: "Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands." (...was there a lot of this happening somewhere?)
On a packet of smoked salmon: "Warning. May contain fish." (well, no freaking duh.)
Teenagers; nature's subtle reminder of why some species eat their young... (FMA Human Starter Kit-san got that one off the internet)
Lack of planning on your part does NOT constitute an emergency on mine. :) (Mom.)
