I am a single stay at home mum. I don't expect too many visitors. My ability to write is not very good, my imagination is more visually directed. But, I very much love to appreciate the incredible stories that are written here. Absolutely amazing, I could only dream of an ability such as everyones here...
Twilight, yes, I am hopelessly addicted. Favorite character - Edward (is there any other?)
Maybe someday I will try my hand at writing a story. Until then I am going to bow down to those of you that have the amazing ability to produce the brilliant stories that are here.
Aquired FanFiction Terms from SexyLexiCullen. Auther of Quiet Storm, AWESOME story... :)
Fanfiction Terms You Should Know (Courtesy of The Only Pancake & Voldemortperfumes)
AU = Alternate Universe. Story does not follow the plot of the Twilight saga.
AH = All Human. There will be no vampires in the story. And the characters have no knowledge or idea of Vamps and wolves.
AN = Author's Note. A notice, question, or other comment that the author of the story needs their readers to see.
POV = Point Of View. The eyes that we read through as we follow a fic. (EX: The Twilight saga is Bella's POV.) If written in the third person, no specific POV must be declared.
Ship = It means that you support a specific pairing.
OOC = Out Of Character. The actions or personality of a specific character will be different from what we deem normal for that specific character. (IE: Rosalie might be super nice to Bella right away in an AU fic, which would mean Rosalie was written OOC.)
OC = Original Character. A person not from the books will be featured in the story.
Non-canon = This is used mainly for pairings. If, for example, you read a Jasper/Bella story you are reading a non-canon story; because it does not feature in the books.
Canon = It DOES feature in the books. This is often used both for pairings, and for plot. (Ex. for plot: Stories that take place pre-Twilight or post-Breaking Dawn are nearly always acclaimed canon stories.)
Lemon/Smut = Any non-kid-friendly material, always in a sexual reference. A lemon is most always R rated, while smut can be hidden in between the lines in something K rated.
Slash = Male and Male smut.
Femmeslash = Female and Female smut.
PWP = Porn Without Plot. Graphic lemons written for the sake of being a lemon.
WIP = Work In Progress. The fic is not yet finished.
Darkfic = This is a fic where dark themes and events are strongly present. It deals with situations like slavery and misuse of sex. Very often includes some sort of physical abuse towards another person. Drug use or graphic death can also constitute a darkfic. (IE: The majortiy that I have seen are in the HP fandom. In particular, Draco Malfoy buying Hermoine Granger to be used as a pleasure tool.)
R+R / R&R = Read and Review. It means, basically, that if you read you should be nice enough to review. Us authors love feedback, it is half the reason we write. We like to try and grow as writers.
OTP = One True Pairing. This is the ship that an author has declared their favorite. It can be crack or canon. An OTP is usually very natural-feeling and easy for an author to write. Though unusual, an author can have two OTP's per fandom. (EX: I, myself, feel that Draco/Hermione for HP and now Bella/Edward in Twilight.)
Fluff = A type of fic which has a generally happy atmosphere, rather than loads of smut or angst. Of course, one could always write a specific type of fluff and change that. (IE: Tragic Fluff will be all angst and someone dies.)
WAFF = Warm and Fluffy Feeling. It's super fluff! lol. Usually-K-Rated things that just make you gush with happiness induce WAFF.
Songfic = A fan fiction based around or inspired by a song. The contents should have something to do with the lyrics. Usually a one-shot.
Crossover = Sticking Remus Lupin in the Twilight world? Putting Dean and Sam from SPN into Twilight? You have created a crossover.
Name Smooshing = This is quite literally smooshing names together. Most popularly used in Warriors, but can be found all over the Fanfiction community. (IE: Twilight/ Jasper and Alice are Jalice. Harry Potter/ Draco and Hermoine are Dramoine.)
HEA = Happily Ever After. So if you ever see it in an author's note saying they are giving the couple an HEA it means everything will end happily.
