Author has written 8 stories for Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Harry Potter, and Hunger Games.
Aren't I adorable as a Lunaii doll? Now if only I can find out how to actually get my bangs like that, instead of just straight.
I am on the Road to Nirvana, steadily making my way toward the dream of a clean, troll-and-Mary-Sue-free Fanfiction.Net. All are welcome, and the vision knows no bounds, so please PM the Road to Nirvana and join today!
My name is… not important at the moment. If you've seen my earlier profile, then you know my first name. That's fine, as long as you don't try to internet-stalk me. Some of you might know my middle and last names from my SYOCs or whatever. If you do, then, once again, just don't stalk me and we'll be fine. There are a few things about me that you need to know if you wish to communicate with me.
1. I do, to say it bluntly, love One Direction.
Yes, I might mention them once or twice in my stories, but I am not the type to shove my beliefs, ideas, or obsessions down peoples' throats. I find that irritating, especially when it concerns religion, because I have met people too ignorant to have brains. Have you ever heard a person say that even people of other religions should believe in and respect Jesus? I do believe in him, but I also believe in rationality and individuality.
"I may not agree with what you say but I will defend 'till the death your right to say it." Voltaire.
As shown above, I may not agree with a single thing you say, but as a human being, you have all right to say it. I might argue with you and want you to take back what you said, but I am not in any position of power to throw you in jail for it, nor would I if I were in said position. Which brings me to my next point.
2. My brain is a scattered mess, and I get off track a lot—more often than not.
As you can see, I started the last point off talking about One Direction. I completely digressed on that one. But I usually only steer off track in the case of idle chit-chat, or when I feel there is an urgent point to be made. If I am discussing something extremely serious or I have nothing else on my mind (which is a rare occurrence), then I will stay on the topic and only the topic.
3. I believe in peoples' rights.
I believe people are allowed to speak their mind, as long as it is within reason. This is a very delicate subject, so I shall refer to point number one. I might not agree with you, but I believe you have your rights.
4. I am a complete Grammar Nazi.
Ask anyone in my day-to-day life. Improper grammar and punctuation just drive me up the wall. I know that no one is perfect, and I know that there is such a thing as human error, but here is what I also know: There are free spell checking sites, built-in spellcheckers, betas, and, um, reading over it yourself. There is absolutely NO excuse for not even trying. So let's have a little lesson here (Also, please ignore the categorization, because the author is slightly OCD):
4-1-1. Your- A pronoun used when speaking about possession: "That's your candy bar."
4-1-2. You're- A contraction of the two words "you" and "are": "You're a jerk." Yes, the prior does look less strange, but that doesn't matter.
4-2-1. Then- A transition word used to tell what happens next: "And then he said…"
4-2-2. Than- A comparative word; used to compare two things: "You're older than me," or, "There are more than seven billion people on earth."
4-3-1. There- A place: "He's over there."
4-3-2. Their- A possessive pronoun: "Where's their dog?"
4-3-3. They're- A contraction of the words "they" and "are": "They're twin sisters."
I'll stop there, because I'm getting thoroughly bored. If you need more tips, such as on punctuation, or more spelling/grammar tips, or even if you just need a beta, then PM me.
5. I love writing and reading writing.
I enjoy reading fanfics. GOOD fanfics. I give constructive criticism. I also flame. Unfortunately, I don't really like flaming until a story literally makes my head throb. My mother raised me to say nice things to and about people. This hasn't really stuck in real life, because face-to-face, I'm usually very blunt and to the point. If I like you enough, then I'll try to sugarcoat stuff. Though, on the internet, I think that it's best not to be a cyber bully and feel safe behind your computer screen. I'm working on flaming more. But mostly I like to give people tips because, once again, frequent grammar mistakes drive me up the wall. At the very least, I try to review every story I read, whether I like it or not. Which brings me to another point.
6. Finally, I'm not nearly as dignified as I seem here.
I'm actually a very random, spontaneous, humorous person. I make up words and use improper grammar when I speak, which is pretty hypocritical, because I'm a Grammar Nazi. I don't really care for what's "in-style" as long as I think that it's cute. I frequent Hot Topic and also Hollister. I dress like a prep, learn and think like a nerd, and act like a dork. I want to write and act and possibly direct or produce for the rest of my life. But that's enough of my life story, because you've got enough on me to write a short, to-the-point book. And that's just the surface.
And now, to be sure that you understand, here's a list of things that I either can't stand or that irk my nerves:
1. Grammar mistakes
4. Snobs; two-dimensional people; fake people; liars; cheaters; narcissistic people
5. The word "popular" (Not in my vocabulary)
6. Vegetables (I don't care if they're healthy, they taste so freaking disgusting!)
7. Overly-sensitive people (I don't HATE people like this, but why open yourself up to be hurt so much? I opened myself up ONCE and vowed to never do it again, so I just won't understand these peope)
8. To be continued…
Now, if you want it and you care (and I get the need to just read straight through a profile, too, so don't feel alone), how about a little history on my journey? Or at least what I remember of it…
I caught the writing bug at the tender age of eight, when I was just entering fourth grade (I started school early). Our teacher had assigned us the task of writing stories about the pictures that she had placed on our desks. I started writing and, though I soon realized just how much I hate writing by hand, I also realized that my imagination seemed bottomless (and, I'll admit, a little scattered). However I shrugged it off at the time.
Later on, I found a little blue composition book. I opened up the first page and stared at it for a moment before setting to work. I wanted to write a play and title it "Sha" (pronounced "Shay". And that rhyming idea wasn't the only sickening thing that emerged from this endeavor). For this whole back-story thing to go well, I have to be completely honest with you, so I'll tell you all of the things wrong with this "play" (or what I remember, since I lost the book).
The name of the play, "Sha", is based off of the name of the main character. The name "Sha" is actually a shortened version of my name (or, at least, the three letters in the middle of my name). Sha was a straight-A student who everybody loved. Everyone thought that she was beautiful and wanted to be her friend, except for the boys, who all wanted to be more than friends. Sha was also a rich girl with two secret-agent parents and an adorable dog and the only person who hated her was a boy named Jamie. He was a hot bad-boy-skater who made Sha's blood boil. He didn't really hate her though; no, he loved her. In the end (which I never actually got to writing, thank gozz), Sha dates Jamie and everything's hunky-dory.
BARF! Let me explain this to you, but first let me thank you for sitting through that explanation. Thank you for that, because I probably couldn't have done it. So, anyway, if you hadn't guessed, I was Sha. Or, at least, the imperfect version of her. I was a young girl and I didn't understand that my life is the way that it is and that it could totally be worse. Now that I'm more than five years older (and I don't mean that I'm any specific age, just more than five years older) I see things differently. I've gotten the straight A's that I wanted, I'm beautiful in my own opinion and others', not everyone needs to love me, not everyone needs to want to date me, I don't need to be rich, and my dad doesn't have to be here OR be a secret agent. For the record, both of my parents are alive, one just got deported.
But I STILL want a dog. (Wow. Three paragraphs on that crappy play.) So, I moved past this self-insert-Mary-Sue once I realized that the play was doomed from the start. Then, something happened. Big Time Rush hit the Nickelodeon airwaves. And I was hooked (just because I get hooked on boy bands, but don't worry. I'm over them).
So, one day, I randomly decided to Google why Kendall Schmidt always wore this brown bracelet (just because I notice things like that. BOSS). Instead of an answer coming up, I got a story on a little site known as Quizilla (I know. I'm ashamed that I ever wrote there, but everybody needs starting ground). What popped up was a story. Now, I had seen this site before, but I only used it for quizzes from TeenNick, which was still The-N at this point in time (I don't recommend going there for quizzes anymore, though. Anything, actually).
But back to the story. I read this Kendall Schmidt love story and I was cracking UP. I was laughing at every paragraph (for all of the right reasons, though; they wanted me to laugh). I branched out and read more and more BTR stories until I decided to write one of my own. I called it "Fame and Us". The central characters were me and my "fraternal twin sister" (who was actually my best friend). We were two orphans who got adopted by Kendall Schmidt's family. I won't explain this to you, since it ended up just like "Sha" (unfinished, self-insert-Mary-Sue-rich-girl-with-a-dog-who-finds-her-true-love-early type of story). The storyline was complex, but in the right hands (and my hands were not the right hands at the time, and now I just don't feel like it) it could've been a gem.
After this I wrote a series of BTR stories involving myself, but they all failed. So I eventually started writing one-shots for other people, which they loved (though they might have just been sparing a young writer's feelings when it came to the grammar; the storylines were pretty good, though). Anyway, I finally decided on one story with no real plot at all (sort of like Degrassi; just a bunch of consecutive drama). I was about to make myself the central character again, but then I decided to make an OC. Ashley Davis, my first OC ever.
Ashley, when she first started out, could've been looked at as a self-insert. She looked completely different from me with a different life and a twin sister (identical this time), but some of the more meaningless details could've labeled her as a self-insert, like how she has my last name and birthday and some of my personality traits, so let me set the record straight: I'm TERRIBLE at coming up with names. After I got the first name, I just didn't care enough to come up with a last name, so I just gave her my last name. Same thing with the birthday. Besides, it's easier to write a character who at least reminds you of yourself. As long as YOU know that they're not YOU and that you're just writing them like that so that you can understand them better, then that's fine.
So, anyway, I worked with Ashley, but I also came up with three other OCs. These OCs aren't important, since they haven't passed the test of time and were tossed. I thought about tossing Ashley, too, but I couldn't do it. Tossing your VERY first OC to the side is like burning your very first kindergarten picture; impossible, if you're sentimental like me. So I decided to keep Ashley and just distance her from myself a little more. I changed her personality even more and now she just has my loud mouth, my last name, and my sense of humor; no more, no less.
So, anyway, I got really into Percy Jackson later on and I wrote a story about that. I'll be the first to tell you, I didn't like Annabeth at first. She seemed too static to be a main character. She's still a bit of a static character in my opinion, and almost a borderline-Sue (smart, quick, strong, tough, beautiful, caring, leader, etc. She DOES have redeeming qualities, but not enough to take her out of the danger zone for me (sorry about my opinion, but I can't change it)), but I respect her more. But in the beginning, I didn't. So I thought, Why not give Percy a better girlfriend? So I did it… it was a fail. This one act of what I believed was justice (past tense) got my first OC called a Mary-Sue. So I stopped it and changed the ages of all of my OCs so that they could stay away from Percy and Annabeth.
In any case, I had this huge story before I had stopped all of that nonsense. It was called "When Paths Cross, Sparks Fly" (Ashley was and is still a daughter of Zeus ("Sparks Fly"), I just didn't justify it). So I planned to just include a few of my OCs on Percy's adventures, but for them to have their own story going on. I rewrote it at least three times before I got bored enough to drop it (sorry, Rick, but studying and keeping track of your timelines and dialogue took a toll on my motivation). I didn't know what to do, but that's changed.
I have two new PJO stories and an SYOT. I also have several extracurricular activities that stand in the way of my writing (marching band, schoolwork, community and school theater (which takes up the majority of my time), and I want to take guitar lessons); I have to keep track of my enormous family (I literally just found out that my cousin has been going to the school that I'm planning on going to next year. And she's been there for three years); oh, and I have to sleep. That's important. My mom says that I'm doing too much, but I think that I'm still fine. Anyway, that stuff stands in the way, but I still do my writing, however long it may take.
Wow, I can't believe that you've just read my life story. Thank you for being so interested in me… I think. In any case, this is the end of the story and the saddest part (YES, it's sadder than figuring out that I wrote "Sha"). I created this account a little over a year ago. When I first joined, I wasn't terrible, but there was a TON of room for improvement. There's always gonna be room for improvement, but I believe that I have closed a lot of that space in just one short year, and I love the people of FanFiction for your guides and heartwarming reviews and constructive criticism. You've helped me grow beyond compare; actually, I think that you've taught me more than all of my awesome English teachers combined.
As soon as I finish my stories, though… I'm done. I'm done writing fanfiction. Granted, I'll still come back to read and review and help all of the newer writers the way that I was helped, but I'll no longer be writing fanfiction myself. I'm currently writing a book that I've been severely neglecting, and I can't write the sequel to that book until I finish writing the original. I don't know; maybe if I get a burning idea for a one-shot, I'll post it. But if that doesn't happen, then the Publish button of my account can kiss me goodbye.
Everyone has a time when they need to move on. I moved on from Quizilla to bigger and better things, and FanFiction is about to suffer the same fate. Some people might move on later than I, but I think that it's almost my time. Just know that I love you all.
List twelve of your favorite Hunger Games characters in no particular order.
2) Gale Hawthorne
3) Prim Everdeen
5) Finnick Odair
6) Katniss Everdeen
7) Haymitch Abernathy
8) Peeta Mellark
(I'll write down who's which number, so you won't have to keep scrolling up :P)
1. Have you ever read a Six/Eleven fic? Do you want to?
Katniss/Buttercup? No. I might, if it isn't romance. Gross...
2. Do you think Four is hot? How hot?
Foxface? Not really. I guess she was pretty in the movie, but I'm straight, so...
3. What would happen if Twelve got Eight pregnant?
Rue getting Peeta pregnant? How the hell did that happen?! How did a dead girl get a boy pregnant?!
4. Can you recall any fics about Nine?
Beetee? No. There probably are some, though
5. Would Two and Six make a good couple?
Katniss and Gale? Some people say so, but I don't believe it. It was obvious from the start that she would marry Peeta. Besides, "Ganiss"? Pronounced "Gayness?" Weird (not a homophobe). But to Ganiss shippers, don't even retort with Katniss and Peeta's name. "Peetniss". *Troll Face*
6. Five/Nine or Five/Ten? Why?
Finnick/Plutarch versus Finnick/Beetee? Neither
7. Is there any such thing as One/Eight fluff?
Johanna/Peeta fluff? There shouldn't be!
16. When was the last time you read a fic about Five?
Finnick? About three days ago. Forgot the name.
17. (1) and (7) are in a happy relationship until (9) runs off with (7). (1), brokenhearted, has a hot one-night stand with (11) and a brief unhappy affair with (6), then follows the wise advice of (5) and finds true love with (12).
Johanna and Haymitch are in a happy relationship (ew...) until Beetee runs off with Haymitch (EW...). Johanna, brokenhearted, has a hot one-night stand with Buttercup (WTF?!) and a brief unhappy affair with Katniss (I bet it was unhappy), then follows the wise advice of Finnick (Aw, Finnick, how nice) and finds true love with Rue (Finnick, you ass. You made Johanna a necrophile/pedophile!).
18. How would you feel if Seven/Eight were in a fight?
Peeta and Haymith? Pfft. I'd sit down, it's expected for them to fight.
19. What would you think if you found (5) was a really good friend of a sibling or relative of yours?
Finnick? No, because then he'd have to die, and my relative would be super sad.
20. How would you react if you saw (8) and (11) in a closet together with a rubber ducky?
I'd tell Peeta that if he wants to play a game with Buttercup then he doesn't have do it in a closet
21. How would you feel if (2) dissed you in the worst possible way ever?
Dissing Challenge Accepted. I'd say, "Well that's why the girl you loved never loved you and was happy when you left for District Two. Ha! I turned your pain into a rhyme!" And I'd win.
22. If you saw (9) and (3) in bed together, what would you do?
Wonder aloud why everyone is a pedophile. Beetee and Prim? Really?
23. What would you say if you found out that (12) was a rapist?
Rue? I wouldn't say anything. I'd run away.
24. You just came home from school and all of your friends hate you, your teacher just gave you an F on the most important project of the year (just imagine it happened for the smart alecks out there), and your parents have grounded you as your teacher had already called and told them of your grade. You open the door to your bedroom and you find (10) rummaging through your stuff. What do you do?
Open the door, tell Plutarch I have no weapons, and when he doesn't leave, show him that I was lying by pulling a knife on him (Just kidding *Troll Face*)
25. What would you think if (1) was emo and had tried to slit his/her wrists? If (1) is already emo/slit his/her wrists already, what would you think if (1) became the most optimistic person in the world?
Johanna becoming optimistic? I'd wonder how much morphling she was on at the moment
26. What would you feel this second if (4) gave you a daisy right now?
Foxface, I'm not gay
27. (6) has just stolen your hairbrush. What is the first thing you would say?
"Katniss, most of us don't have prep teams, so give me back my brush"
28. (7), (9), and (4) have banded together at 3 in the morning and starts to sing the most annoying song you know as loud as they can, waking you up. What is the first thing you think?
Haymitch, Beetee, and Foxface are bigger dorks than I thought... But I'm a dork too, so who cares?
29. (2) and (11) are your teachers. What would you do?
Gale and Buttercup? I'd run. I don't want to see the cat fight (ha-ha!) that breaks out when Buttercup finds out that Gale's traps blew up Prim
