You want to know about me? Well...
I'm also known under the screen name Ravus4001. You may call be by either screen name.
How I started: On another site in 2008 (site now gone) I started out with Gaara from Naruto fanfiction since the series had a large world and tons untold story which made it easy to manipulate for fics. At the time OC stories were popular so I tried it. Writing was meant to be for typing improvement and to practice for original stories I wanted to work on after I leveled up. It’s given reason to research all sorts of interesting little facts that I might have never considered before. I also found writing to be therapeutic, so I kept writing fan fiction.
The writing process: I have a strong background in preproduction, so I research, plan, and make the full outline. Then I wait awhile before I actually write it out. This is to see if I like the idea or if I'm still willing to go through with the final process. If I don't know where to start or end a story, it gets set aside before I can get stuck. Having complete outlines prevents lagging for several months between updates as long as I have drive and motive. I no longer have a beta reader, so my postproduction process has been lacking, so forgive me for any errors that get passed me.
When I receive Reviews: I read all of them and I will reply to reviews occasionally if your Private Messaging is allowed. PM is fine for questions and pointing out an error/typo. If you used Guest to review about errors, then I won't keep it because I fix things right away, but I still appreciate you taking the time to do so.
If I reviewed something of yours: If I said something at all, it's to offer recognition, advice/tips, and at least subtle encouragement. If you don't like what I said in a review, that's okay, but it is not intended as a negative comment to stop writing. Don't take anything I said personally or as negative. I'm not a very good critic, but I will often try to find something that can be improved upon. I want to see you continue to level up as a writer by improving whatever you can or based on community suggestions.

Me and Shipping/OTPs: I'm not much of a shipper. I ship a little, but I don't have an OTP for every fandom I'm interested in. If it's canon, then I'm usually okay with it. I'm open to canon/OCs pairings too. For my own writing, I may experiment with ships/pairings, sometimes because I like them, sometimes because I want to see how it may play out. It's all good.
