Author has written 11 stories for Detective Conan/Case Closed, Harry Potter, Danny Phantom, and Yu-Gi-Oh.
Life has finally settled down and I intend to start writing again soon! :D
MARIE'S FANFIC GUIDELINES:
1. No citrus. Fluffy romantic stuff can be cute when well-written enough, though. I tend more towards action/adventure and mystery, with some comedy baked in to leaven the mood (and sometimes comedy on its own.)
2. Readers and reviews are awesome! Also feel free to contact me via PM or Email if you'd like.
3. I know boy/boy and girl/girl stuff is enjoyed, but I don't write about it unless it's canon or makes sense within the scope of the characters and their personalities.
4. My plunnies like to compete with each other, and sometimes this winds up in a giant wreck of bunnies, monocles, top hats, stun gun wristwatches, carrots and wrestling. When this happens, my updates may take a while while I make all the plot bunnies play nicely again. I apologize for this, and thank the readers and reviewers that stick with me very profusely.
My logical left brain has threatened to walk out on me after reading some of my story ideas, but my creative right brain is very nice and supportive of me and my efforts. (Since I'm a lefty, everything is more controlled by my brain's right hemisphere anyway. Geh, enough of medical rambling.)
MY DIFFERENT LABELS/WARNINGS:
Epic--You're going to be in for a long ride with a 'fic bearing this label. Epics, to me, are 'fics that are going to span SEVERAL months and tons of chapters while telling the story; not my average 15-20 chapter 'fic. I'll tell you which ones are epic.
AU--I'll mention this in the summary as well. I'll take what the characters do/say in the 'normal' universe of the anime and twist and bend it to my will while throwing the poor, hapless characters into a universe of my own design (while keeping it as true as possible to those characters.) ((Insert godlike, maniacal laughter here.)) I do try very hard NOT to have them be OOC, but a few things might seem off/odd when looked at through the lens of canon. That's why it's called an alternative universe.
Random--Reading a 'fic of mine whose summary includes this word? Don't expect a plot, a moral, or for ANYTHING to make ANY sort of sense. You've been warned. These are generally products of my warped imagination on a sugar high. (Again I say: You've been warned.)
MARIE'S SHOUT-OUT TO REVIEWERS:
-I'd like to thank every single person who's ever left me a review from the bottom of my heart. It means a lot more than non-authors/authoresses would think when someone takes the time after reading a story to leave a review. It's not only an ego boost, it's a thrill and gives us encouragement. You never know, your kind words (or constructive criticism) may save a 'fic from being yanked down, or even give the author/authoress a much-needed boost at the end of a rotten day when the words just don't seem to come out right and the dreaded Writer's Block seems to have descended heavily upon thier shoulders. And for you fellow authors/authoresses who've left them for me, well, you guys know how reviews can make one feel. Thanks a ton for taking the time to review and critique my work from the writer's perspective. Remember, leaving a review might seem like a silly thing, but it takes only a few minutes, at the most, and it means everything in the world to the recipient of that review.
-Second, I'll thank any and everyone who has a story of mine on thier favorites list, alert list or myself in their author faves/alerts. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving an authoress a reason to write. The thrill of seeing a story of mine on someone's favorites list never lessens, and I especially thank those who take the time to review every chapter. It's very nice to hear critique from someone who's been following the story since its beginning.
