Author has written 3 stories for Naruto, and Harry Potter.
Hello everyone. My name is... well you can just call me Joe.
I enjoy reading and writing, and I'm largely curious about pretty much anything.
Fandoms I Read and (Would) Like to Write In
Favorite Characters: 1.Sakura 2. Jiraiya 3. Rock Lee
Favored - Naruto/Sakura, Naruto/Ino
Despised - Sasuke/Sakura
I like Naruto the manga, and over the years have developed an obsessive interest in it.
In this fandom I enjoy reading most different types of fics. I don't stress too much as long as dialogue at the very least is done well and character's aren't constantly making ridiculous decisions. I am generally unlikely to read any Yaoi unless they are well written, untagged (As in I don't realize its YAOI until I've already become engrossed in it.), and if romance isn't the main drive of the story. I strongly dislike bashing in any story that expects itself to be taken seriously. However that being said, bashing has made for some funny jokes in Parody fics.
As for what I would like to write in this fandom... I'd like to do a story that is essentially a more grounded realistic take on the story. I like writing darker, grittier stuff like that, and I would most likely write it in a similar vein to Game of Thrones, following several different characters. I also like to bring in characters from other fandoms and plant them (as seamlessly as possible) into the story.
The current idea I have and am playing with in my mind would follow Naruto, Haku, Gaara, and Edward Elric, with a prophecy that involves a 'chosen one' who is destined to take over the world. I don't think it sounds too great on paper, probably a bit vague really. But in my mind it looks pretty awesome, I hope I get round to writing it.
Favorite Characters: 1.Hermione 2.Tonks 3.Sirius
Favored - Harry/Hermione
Despised - Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione, Hermione/(And pretty much anyone if the story isn't Hermione-centric)
I haven't read book 5 and/or 6, nor have I seen movie 6, but I am of the solid opinion that I kind of like the Harry Potter series, but absolutely love the Harry Potter Fanfic Community. I have spent countless hours reading fanfics of varying quality, and have enjoyed nearly every moment more than I ever enjoyed the original series.
In the HP fandom I now have really high standards for what I am willing to read. I think this is largely due to the fact that I perceive HP to be far more grounded in real life, and as such I want it to feel like that with minimum effort on my part to overlook poor dialogue and writing. This fandom is also the only one in which I allow my shipping preferences to almost always dictate what I read. I will absolutely not consider reading any fics with a Ron/Hermione combination. Anything else, I can stomach, but the moment Ron and Hermione hook up, I'm done. I'm not really going to sit here and justify that because its quite irrational really, and I know that they could work, but I would be lying if I said that I've never abandoned a fic which I was enjoying simply because R/Hr happens. Its irrational, but it is what it is. I kind of hate Ron.
Avatar The Last Airbender
1.Toph 2.Sokka 3.Iroh
Favored - Toph/Sokka, Toph/Aang
Despised - Sokka/Suki
Not too much to say here really. I like reading the stories, have a high tolerance for lower quality writing, and I don't mind any pairings but have a strong preference for anything involving Toph as the main character. She is quite literally my favorite character in anything ever. Although she has a close competitor in Hit-Girl, largely because I've had the privilege of seeing Hit-Girl live-action.
Favorite Characters: 1.Gwen 2.Uncle Max 3.Ben
Favored - Ben/Gwen
Despised - Every other one involving either Ben or Gwen
I only discovered that I like this pairing and this fandom recently thanks to reading what I consider to be one of my all time favorite fanfics. I can't say too much about my preferences in the fandom as a whole, largely thanks to how small it is, but I do know that I am now an ardent supporter of Ben/Gwen, regardless of the impropriety of it.
Let Me In (2010 Film)
Favorite Characters: 1.Abby 2.Owen
Favored - Abby/Owen
Despised - None
Just like Ben 10, I only really enjoyed one or two stories in this fandom, but its here because one of them is in my all time fiction list. I only got interested in this after having seen the film, which I enjoyed, but I probably wouldn't have followed up my interest with fanfiction if it weren't for the fact that Chloe Moretz was brilliant as Abby.
