Author has written 13 stories for Soul Eater.
Hi everybody! I'm here to take your soul! Well...not really. I'll be content with writing a profile page.
Me: I'm just a "normal" college student, obsessed with Soul Eater among other things.
9/20 Focusing more on my cosplays now that the manga has ended and my tears have left me. Next Easter weekend, in Seattle, you will see a fem!Soul with a blade arm made out of foam and hopefully a black dress Maka with a foam piano scythe. And I'll be steampunk somewhere along the line too. I suspect I will be changing costumes every few hours.
7/19 OMG OMG OMG Soul Eater manga is ENDING?!?!? WHAT?!?! This cannot be! But as long as Soma is at least 99.99% confirmed I'll be happy with it? No promises on me crying or not. *plans to hug Soul and Maka plushies and listen to soundtrack while reading* Also I have a tumblr. It is snowbunnie42blog. But I never check it.
Currently obsessed with:
-SOUL EATER!!! (Soul x Maka forever, Black*Star x Tsubaki, Kid x Mirror, Liz x Wes, Patty x Giraffe, Soul x Motorcycle, Soul x Piano, Soul in a suit)
And I also like...
-The devil is a part-timer aka the funniest show EVER (Mao x pants and Alsiel x someone!!)
-Kaze no Stigma (canon pairing, as long as she isn't yelling Kazuma!!!)
-Yugioh gx (NO spirit shipping)
-Baccano! (canon pairing)
-Natsume Yuujinchou (Natsume x Taki...though lately I've been thinking of Tanuma x Taki. Thoughts?)
-Fringe (it's over noooooo!!! ;( ) Olivia / Peter always.)
Something that really peeves me...improper changing of POVs. I sometimes comment on this on stories that could be interesting but are literally hard to read! Here is an excerpt of an article I read: writing-world . com
"Choosing one POV character strengthens readers' identification with that character. The more readers are carried along with that character, the more willing they are to stay immersed in the fictional dream. There is nothing more jarring to readers than a switch in point of view. They must mentally change gears. If readers are tagging along inside character X's head and then find themselves looking through character Y's eyes, they're confused. They stop reading to figure it out. They come out of the fictional dream. Pull another POV switch without warning, and they may never sink into the dream again.
Of course you don't have to tell your entire tale from the POV of only one character, but each character who takes up the mantle of POV must have their very own scene -- not merely one paragraph or one sentence within a scene, but a scene devoted wholly to that character's POV. And to avoid any confusion, you have to let readers know right away that they're now tagging along with character Y for this scene instead of their old pal, character X.
Here's how: first, tell readers the POV is changing by leaving a blank space between the end of character Y's scene and the beginning of character X's, or start a new chapter. Now that readers have been primed for a change, don't keep them on tender hooks -- tell them who they're with as soon as possible." (but don't just say X's POV, I find that tacky and unnecessary)
Another pet peeve of mine is saying "I suck at summaries" or any version thereof. No author sucks at summaries. You're the author, you know what your story is about. So I am confused why authors say so. Is it that they don't know how to write a summary that encourages readers to read? I think as long as you write a summary of your story people would read it. Don't doubt yourself!
If you see a PM from me, it means that I am interested in your story and would like to help you!
