Author has written 7 stories for Nightmare Before Christmas, Batman the Animated Series, and Batman.
-Name: Nightmare. I go by N on and offline.
I have a lot of favorite fandoms. I love Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas (hence my username), and Batman: The Animated Series the most in terms of fanfiction. I will bounce around to other sections, but those are my main.
I am a Tim Burton fan. My favorite film has been mentioned, but runner-ups include Corpse Bride, Sweeney Todd, Edward Scissorhands, and Sleepy Hollow. I enjoy Disney films as well. The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Beauty and the Beast, and Treasure Planet are my favorites so far as those are concerned. And Batman is my comic of choice, and I love the 1992 animated series just as much as the comics, and I will likely reference both in Batman-related fics (though I will place them in whichever series is more appropriate). I have a lot of other weird fandoms, like Goosebumps. Yes, I still read and enjoy them. I also enjoy Blogger Beware and the shots it takes at the series.
Favorite characters include, but are not limited to:
-Jonathan Crane/the Scarecrow
-Lock, Shock, and Barrel
-Erik, the Phantom of the Opera (the book version)
Relationships I Ship:
The Nightmare Before Christmas: Jack/Sally. They are simply meant to be.
Batman: The Animated Series: Joker/Harley (Jharls)! While Harley/Ivy is canon, Harley/Joker is more entertaining, in my opinion. ...And cute (sometimes). And as a (not so) guilty pleasure, Scarecrow/Poison Ivy. Because two intellectuals with one based in lust and the other being next to asexual intrigues me. And because if done right, it can work canonically.
Corpse Bride: Victor/Victoria, and Bonejangles/Emily (that last one, I especially like it if it is more playful than romantic).
-I am okay with OC's, provided they actually add something to the story and are not just thinly-disguised wish fulfillments or Sues. Go read To Walk With Fear by Dr. Oranj for a great example of a good OC. A good rule of thumb: if you take the OC out, and the story works fine or is made better without them, it was a Sue. Same thing applies if there is no story.
-I am currently on a Scarecrow kick, and have at least one more fic involving him that I am working on. Maybe I will get back to Nightmare Before Christmas when that train runs its course. Who knows?
-I hate "ring and run" authors, who start stories and never finish them. Thus, to avoid becoming one myself, I only ever post fics when they are finished, or close enough to being finished that I know my audience will get an ending. Thus, it takes me forever to update between fics, as I start some, finish others, and just leave some hanging. Add in that I write original work too, and fanfiction WILL take a back seat to that.
-I have pretty much disowned the "Oogie Boogie and Lock, Shock, and Barrel" story. It is terrible, and only stays up as a reminder to myself of how bad of a writer I used to be, as well as an example to myself and others of what not to do. I may rework that story into something I consider readable later, but we will see.
