Author has written 2 stories for Escaflowne, Harry Potter, and Fullmetal Alchemist.

ehh.. as I'm actually publishing my stories, I figure I should put something here.

I used to get my best writing when feeling most depressed when I was a teenage. But once the angst passed away, I no longer felt inspired, and my stories would just sit and rot.

Well, now that the crazy hormones have cleared my brain. I think I finally have the mental capacity to write a story from beginning to end... or at least work out a plot line to follow.

What I look for in stories, and what I hope to write, are realistic characterizations. That, and a consistent plot. Err.. add good grammar and spelling on the list.

I'm a logistic nazi. Example: The door to the right is ten feet away; it should take ten steps to reach there. Or scene A started at noon, and only takes two hours, but then we immediately move to scene B, and the sun is setting! Where did the time go?

So it's always a special treat when I read a story where the LOGISTICS makes sense.

Pet peeves on ff.net

#1 people who confuse THAN and THEN

than: used as comparative. Ex. She's taller than I am.

then: order of time or place. Ex. She washed the dishes, then I dried them. I placed the cutlery on the table, first the forks, then the knives, then the spoons.

#2 people who write reviews along the nature of: UPDATE! NOW!

Please try to understand that people have lives, school, jobs, family etc. Fan fiction is published by fans for fans.

#3 the use of fan nicknames/fan abbreviations without explanation in the story

To me, fan fics are a way of pro-longing the experience of the world created by the original author. To refer to any characters in-story by their fan nicks destroys the whole experience. And it’s frankly quite unprofessional. (Professional fanfic writer? Oxymoron.)
