Name: Hmm, I've had many names. From my cringe-y xX and random capitalization name, to a simpler but still awkward one, to the one I have now (I think there were more transformations along the way, but I forget). You can call me whatever. You can call me my old sign-off name, Failure-chan, or my new one, The Doctor. You can call me any variation of my old and current names. You can even call me by my first name, Paula (but whatever you do, do not put Abdul or Dean next to it, because Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, I've had enough of that in real life). Hell, go ahead and use my middle name, Mercedes; a cousin of mine has fun coming up with nicknames with that.
GenderYes, I am female.
Age: Hmm... Nope, not saying (although I'm sure some of you can do the math based on a chapter I have up temporarily...).
Miscellaneous: What else do I say? Um... I like music. A lot. Especially Vocaloid, I really like Vocaloid. And mm, I love GUMI—that's best girl right there. I'm starting to like K-Pop; I like Akdong Musician (AKMU, for short, and technically they're Folk but whatever) and f(x) (and no, it looks like they're breaking up! :C) and some others but they're not coming to mind. There's other music too—classical, rock, the occasional English pop song when I'm feeling white-girly enough. I also like books. Books are fun. I like making music; flute is my primary instrument, but I also do piccolo and marimba (blame marching band), and trying to teach myself piano. I think yaoi's cool, and yuri too. Doesn't mean I don't like hetero stuff, though. I watch a lot of anime; and read a lot of manga too. But I guess that's a given when I write about it, so yeah.
I think I'm talking too much about myself. It's not like anyone actually reads this shit. Shrug.
Here's the real reason I edited my profile: STUPID, COMMON WRITING MISTAKES THAT MAKE ME NOPE THE FUCK OUT OF A STORY
1. Using "defiantly" or other versions instead of "definitely"
2. Using "could of, should of, would of" instead of "could have, should have, would have". Yes, would've sounds like "would of" but that doesn't fucking mean you write it phonetically.
3. Mixing up accept, except, and expect? Fucking altleft the hell out of that story. The last two aren't even homophones!
4. Mother. Fucking. Homophones. There, their and they're not used correctly? Your instead of you're, and vice versa? I'm out. Peace.
5. It's and its. The first is a contraction, meaning "it is", and the second one is a pronoun, such as "its color", and is used in the same fashion as his and her, except it replaces an object. It's far too common of a mistake that peeves me. The same goes for who's and whose: the first one is "who is" and the second is a pronoun, much like his and her and its. Here's an example: Whose eyes are you talking about?
6. Who is subjective, meaning doing the action. Whom is objective, meaning receiving the action. As in, To whom?
But wait, there's more! Ohoho, there's tons more. I'm only stating the obvious ones. Will I put up more? Maybe. Does this sound a bit harsh? Maybe.
But maybe you should actually know what word to use, or maybe you should get a beta or someone to look over your work if you're prone to mistakes.
If you're writing English when it's not your primary language, well good on you. English is fucking confusing, so I won't be too harsh, but it would be better to go the extra mile and check with someone whose first language is English.
There are times where I stick through a story despite the glaring mistakes. Sometimes. It doesn't make me groan or cringe any less when I try to, however.
Oh well. That's it. Happy reading.
