Hullo! I'm Swirly.
I'm an amateur writer, an amateur everything really... I don't receive any money for anything I do, and I wouldn't have it any other way, not yet at least. I like to keep my Real Life and the Internet separate. I have friends outside of the internet, and in all honesty, I'm not looking for friends on the internet. I've been in that position where my 'internet friend' got angry at me because I wasn't online enough and, well, ever since then I don't spend that much time on the internet and like to focus on School and my Friends a bit more.
I play sports year round, so chances are you won't catch me online during the week very much, and because my laptop's a piece of junk, I don't get on much period unless I can get onto my desktop. I type everything up on my laptop, and then have to transfer it to my desktop in order to get it onto the internet, and that's a hassle, so if I'm taking a while for something, I'm really sorry.
I don't write many fanfictions, and the things I have written I haven't posted because I'm simply not comfortable with them yet, or haven't finished (but I'm trying to change that, which is why I got an account on here). I really don't like taking someone else's character and putting them into a story of my own, but at the same time I think it's a good writing exercise because you don't have to worry as much about character development and such, or vice versa if you have a character you want to put into a story that already exists. That in mind, I really try to keep characters and stories as authentic as possible. I don't like taking a badass mother and turning him into a pansy, or a blonde-bimbo and turning her into a self-reliant feminist. It just doesn't happen with me (unless I'm doing it as a joke), so if you're expecting something like that, I'm really sorry to disappoint. However, if there's a character who's shown in a specific light in their respective game, book, show, etc. with hints of a hidden personality, I'll explore that. But I won't completely ignore the character's given... well... Character.
I hate disappointing people. If there's something you don't like, feel free to tell me. Unless it's something I feel very strongly about, I may change it, or try to alter it a bit so you like it a bit better. I also love to receive criticism, and I'm really trying to get better at taking the criticism and using it. However, I do not like trolls, and I hate flaming. If you're just being a jerk for the sake of being a jerk, expect me to be a jerk back, depending on the time of day. I may just ignore you because if you're wasting your time reading my story and telling me how bad my writing is, I won't take the time to tell you how ignorant you are.
In all honesty, I'm not a very nice person. I don't try to be a nice person, and I don't try to be a mean person, but I try to be honest. If I come across as mean, I'm sorry, but I don't like sugar coating things, and I'm not here to make people like me, I'm here to write, or at least try to write.
Weaknesses When Writing:
I use run-ons... A lot. I'm not the best at grammar in general really, though I try my best there are some things I just forget. I type pretty fast, and sometimes I'll leave out a word even, and won't catch it.
I'm not very good at structure, either, nor outlining things ahead of time or going by said-outlines if I do make one.
I like to write on the spot, and sometimes that's good I suppose, but it's also my downfall.
I'm pretty good with spelling. Chances are I won't spell a word wrong, instead it'll be a different word, but won't be misspelled. Even if I do spell a word wrong, I always spellcheck or catch myself while I'm writing. I'm also pretty decent at description (Though, getting that description to flow is a bit more of a struggle for me).
My aim is to not have to use curses, not have to use gore, and not have to use sex to make a story good. I can write all of those. I can put a curse between every word. I can make a scene so gory you'd have nightmares about it. And I could write a sex scene so graphic that you'll feel awkward for weeks, even if you're a 50 year old man who's a pedophile. Thing is, I don't think that makes a good writer. Being able to write curses, gore, or sex doesn't make you a good writer. Being able to get the same reaction without writing any of those, does.
Does that mean I won't ever have a character cursing? No, because that'sapart of the character. But when I'm writing as the narrator, you'll never find a curse unless I'm writing in first-person. There are so many other words to choose from in order to describe or exclaim something, so why resort to using profanity?
Does it mean I'll never write a bloody fight scene? No. But I won't write a torture scene in-depth.
Does that mean there won't be any romance? No. But if you're looking for a good night, Sir or Ma'am, you came to the wrong place.
I like the original couples most of the time. Simple enough.
I hate pairings that aren't there. In example, one of my favorite series is Assassin's Creed, and I hate the whole 'Desmond x Ezio/Altaïr/Shaun', 'Ezio x Leonardo', etc., pairings that are popping up everywhere.
I don't hate slash, I have nothing against the Gay and Lesbian community, but I just don't like taking something that isn't gay and...well... making it gay. So, if you're looking for that, you're probably not going to find it here.
I see those couples when there's a chance they could be there... But when it's something that's just impossible, and especially when it's clearly just a friendship, if even, I'm just not on board, and chances are you won't be able to get me on board. So, please, for the sake of both of us, never ask if I'll write something along those lines (Especially any of the pairings I listed above).
