Hello. I'm a teenage girl called StoryMaker the Echidna (formerly StoryMaker-Xy the Echidna) - or at least, that's my pen name. Typically, I am known online as simply StoryMaker. You can call me Story if you want; after all, I'm a story written by God.
I have various fictional interests, including Sonic the Hedgehog, JumpStart (educational software by Knowledge Adventure), ClueFinders (educational software by The Learning Company), Peanuts, Calvin & Hobbes, Toy Story, Pokemon, My Little Pony, etc. (Not necessarily in that order. Which one is my favorite tends to vary.) Yes, that's a lot of things to be a fan of, but it's good to live a balanced life, right? :)
I don't read a lot of stories, but I do sometimes. So if you have a good one from a category I like, send me a PM and I'll consider reading and reviewing. I prefer oneshots because they take less time to read. I can handle some violence. No cursing please (though a few of my favorite fan fics that are rated T do contain some - I guess I can handle a little, but I prefer zero), and NO sexual or suggestive content of any kind. I am very interested in all kinds of fan fics with Christian themes, but don't expect me to laud your fic just because it's Christian. In fact, it being Christian will probably make me judge it by a higher standard, and I won't ease up on the slightest theological error. So yeah, that should be great incentive to send all your Christian fics to me >:D
Note to self: PLAY! YOUR! CELLO! There's no excuse. You know you want to, you know you should, you know this won't really be a "tiny break"...so what's your excuse?
If U r HomeSchOOld and dont no how to spel as a resalt, PLZ put tis in ur profil! ;)
If you put your faith in Jesus Christ and are not ashamed of it, put this in your profile!

I wrote the battle scene, plus some other stuff.
Want me to write a battle scene for your Pokemon story, or somehow contribute to one of your stories in another way? Drop me a PM!
A message from me:
Where will you go when you die? Heaven or hell? The time to think about the answer to this question is now – not after it’s too late. No one knows how much time they have left.
In order to answer this question, we need to consider who God is and how he decides who goes to heaven and who goes to hell. His standards are clearly set out in the Bible. In it, he says we must not lie – which includes so called “white” lies (Exodus 20:16), we must not use the name of the Lord to swear (Exodus 20:7), we must not covet (Exodus 20:17), we must not steal – regardless of the item’s value (Exodus 20:15), hating others is a form of murder (Matthew 5:21-22, 1 John 3:15), and lust is a form of adultery (Matthew 5:27-28), and we must love God with all our hearts and our neighbors as ourselves (Matthew 22:36-40), among other things. NONE of us keep all of these commands all of the time. We may think that we don’t disobey them that often, or that we don’t disobey them that badly (which is admitting that we did, in fact, disobey them), or that we do a lot of good things, or had a “good” reason to disobey them. But would any of these excuses work in a court of law? Of course not. If we disobey the law, we must be punished. It’s as simple as that. God is just, good, and perfect, and He can’t just ignore our crimes. He must punish everyone who disobeys His righteous laws.
However, there is good news. God is incredibly loving and merciful. He sent His own Son to come into the world as a man – Jesus Christ, who is as infinitely perfect as His Father. He died on the cross and took the punishment for the sins of anyone who would believe in Him. He faced God’s wrath. He paid the price that we should’ve paid. Then, He rose from the grave, showing that He has full power over death. If we believe in His atoning sacrifice, not our own efforts, then our sins are paid for. We don’t have to face eternal punishment after we die, but will rather experience eternal joy in heaven! Also, His Spirit will live inside us and give us a new heart!
God is just. He punishes all crimes against His perfect law. But if we trust in Jesus, we don’t have to fear death. We don’t have to fear God’s wrath. And we don’t have to live a sinful life. The price for our sins is already paid – if we confess our sins, repent, and believe in Jesus Christ! Will you do that today?

Random blabbing about my favorite things (favorite characters, etc.)
Sonic the Hedgehog. I like the video games, SatAM and Sonic Archie Comics. Well, Archie Sonic does have some weird & distasteful stuff in it (for example, some golden goop being the creator of the universe, anthropomorphic animals being the result of squid-brain-combo aliens wanting to commit genocide, etc.), certainly, but in my mind, it's just as sure that they had & have some cool ideas. And the games have had some dumb stuff in them too, you know. I don't really care that "the Western interpretation of the Sonic universe that you grew up with is ALL A LIE!" In my opinion, it's a "lie" just as much as ALL of Sonic is a "lie" (and BTW, I personally didn't "grow up" with it anymore than I did with any other part of Sonic, since I became a fan in 2006). Dude, it's a work of fiction. How can some of it be more true than other parts if none of it is remotely true? Yeah, yeah, I know what people mean - the original creators of Sonic didn't create the Freedom Fighters and Mobius and all that stuff. That doesn't mean I can't still enjoy them, though. And while they're clearly not a part of the games' canon, and not created by Sega of Japan or Sonic Team, that doesn't mean they're fan fiction. And even if they were, who cares? Fan fiction is fun. xD
Don't get me wrong - I'm not a SegaSonic purist, but I'm DEFINITELY not an ArchieSonic purist, either. There's many ways in which I wish the comics were more like the games, such as focusing more on the game characters (I like a lot of Archie exclusives, I just tend to prefer SegaSonic characters), having more game-based geography, having some more game-based badniks, having less stupid clutter, and more. (Maybe the "non-reboot" will bring about some such changes?) I am against all kinds of Sonic-related purism! :D
I dislike Sonic X.
My favorite character is Knuckles the Echidna. He always has been and always will be. I like that he's an echidna (I love obscure animals), that he's red, and that whole "guardian of the Master Emerald" thing is pretty cool. And he's really strong.
I also like Mighty the Armadillo (I like how he's strong yet peaceful), Sonic the Hedgehog and Miles "Tails" Prower (not necessarily in that order).
Sonic games are so fun! A large part of why I enjoy them is because it's fun to pretend to be Sonic, or Knuckles, or any of those other awesome peeps. I am NOT a very "hardcore" gamer at all, though. I haven't finished many Sonic games at all...and the ones I have finished are super short ones like Sonic R and Sonic the Fighters. Lately, I've been finding the classic games more enjoyable than the modern ones, even though I was the opposite way as a kid. (Well, I'm a teenager, so I'm still a kid to some people...)
Pokemon. My favorite Pokemon is Magby. It's sort of weird. It's not like Magby is especially awesome. But I like it anyway. I sort of like gushing about things that don't deserve to be gushed about. I really like the Kanto Gym Leaders, for some reason. I used to be REEEEALLLLLYYYY obsessed with them. I daydreamed about them constantly.
For a brief period of my life, I loathed Tracey Sketchit. I guess just because he replaced Brock, and I pretended he was dumb to justify my irrational hatred. I just hated him for fun. It's kind of fun to be irrational. After I got over hating Tracy, I started loathing Ash Ketchum. I sort of got over that, too. Sure, he can be stupid, but whatev.
Back when I was excessively obsessed with Kanto Gym Leaders, I HAAAAAAATED (and sort of even feared) the Pokemon anime with a passion, even though I hardly watched it and still don't. I was just like, "ANIME DISRESPECT DA KANTO JIM LEADERS! IT MUST DIEE!" I am no longer so passionate, but I still don't like their portrayal of the KGLs. Including, if not especially, Brock and Misty. Wellll, I don't hate their anime depictions, but they just feel so...deGymLeaderified.
I'm not a total 151-purist or something, but in my opinion, the overall, general quality of Pokemon designs has decreased every generation. From what I've seen so far, Generation VI definitely looks to defy this trend!
Peanuts. My favorite character is Shermy. It's that whole gushing-about-things-that-don't-deserve-it thing. I mean, isn't there just something so awesome about his lack of personality? He doesn't need personality to be awesome. His awesomeness TRANSCENDS personality. I really love his name. I have a love-hate relationship with his haircut. Part o' me loves it, part o' me don't. Other characters I like include Linus, Schroeder and Charlie Brown. I dislike Peppermint Patty and Woodstock, even though they don't really deserve to be disliked. It's just fun to dislike things for no particularly good reason.
JumpStart. Hopsalot is my favorite character. Then again, maybe CJ and Edison are. JumpStart is the kind of series where they really, really, REALLY don't care about a consistent canon and depiction of characters, but throughout the eras, CJ and Edison have always held a certain sort of dynamic-duo appeal. And yet, in the current incarnation of JumpStart, Edison has been obliterated. Boo hiss. D:
My Little Pony. Ugggh, I can't for the life of me decide who my favorite character out of the Mane 6 is. I really like Feathermay (a toy-only pony). Blossomforth is another favorite - I liked her even before I knew she appeared in Hurricane Fluttershy, mostly because I loved her name, but when I saw her in that episode, I began to like her even more - they gave her an adorable show design! I'm mostly a fan of G4 (Friendship is Magic), but I have a certain interest in previous generations too, and I'm way more interested in the toys than most bronies. I have a collection of My Little Ponies...a small collection D:
