Nyx: HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII PEEEEEOOPLE!
Nic: People don't like you screaming in their ears, Nyx.
Nyx: I know that, I just felt like doing it anyway, and I figured they could put up with it...
For those who are wondering, no, this is not just one person with an imaginary friend and a list of mental problems, although we may seem like that at times. We are two friends who've known each other forever and both love to read and write. We co-write and, when writing alone, use one another as editors. Nyx is 586 and Nic is 587. We are both female, and we think that's all you need to know. Nyx can be found zoning out and talking to her cat and running into walls. Nic can often be found pushing her into those walls. Nic also has Ethan Nakamura tied and gagged in her basement. Nobody really knows what Nyx has done with Nico. We both speak our minds, have very strong opinions on just about everything, think society is a kinda twisted at this point in time, and along with writing do a lot of art. Our profile, drawn by Nyx, is a very sexy Ethan Nakamura. We write, and things are written to be read. We strongly encourage feedback. Despite a lack of social skills, we think of ourselves as likable people once someone has the nerve to approach us. We don't bite. Hard. We also happen to value silence, but not in the face of something that desperately needs to be said.
The Daughter of Darkness; Rebels - Same story as Daughter of Time (now deleted), but from Bree's POV. First story in the Daughter of Darkness series. It is about four unique demigods - one of them being Ethan Nakamura, the other three OC's - in Kronos's army during the Titan War. They struggle not only to stay alive but to remain who they are, stick together, and not lose sight of their morals. See summary. Rated T for slight language use, violence, a few darker conflicts, and small amounts of mature humor. Has been very successful. Cover art by Nyx. Edit; COMPLETE!!!
Bottomless - Complete one-shot on Nico's thoughts/mental state at the ending of MoA/beginning of HoH. Details some memories of Tartarus and his current thoughts. Rather dark, depressing, and gets descriptive. Not entirely horrible, though, for I can't imagine him completely lost (makes me cry). Rated T. Written, edited, and illustrated (cover) by Nyx.
The Daughter of Darkness; Rejects - Second in the Daughter of Darkness series. *REBELS spoiler alert* Many small conflicts stand between sisters Bree, Hunter, and Brook and peace in their new home, but it all seems manageable. Or at least it did until Nico, Bree's isolated half-brother who seems to hate them all, brings bad news from the Underworld. They are forced to go with him on a dangerous quest as their powers start to fail them. What's worse, they're being tailed by a mysterious new threat all too interested in Hunter - will it be Nico, the monsters, or their newfound shadow to kill them first? Rated T for, once again, slight language, violence, darker conflicts, and small hints of mature humor. Cover done by Nyx (who is quite proud). T for same as Rebels. COMPLETE.
Should I Forget - Complete one-shot about Nico. Again. This is what happens when Nyx imagines his death in HoH and must let out the resulting grief. Set in BotL the night after Bianca speaks to Nico for the first time after her death. Short and strong. Cover is a very cute chibi doodle of a young Nico di Angelo, drawn by Nyx.
Say Cheese - Oh, the fun one can have with a Titan and a can of squirt-able dairy... Funny one-shot. T for a couple implied jokes. Written by Nyx.
The Daughter of Darkness; Redeemable - Third in the Daughter of Darkness series. *REJECTS SPOILER ALERT* The stars were just the beginning. Olympus is still closed, demons have yet to stay dead, and Gaea's already moved on to her next plot. At the dead of winter when monsters are the strongest, the demigods are on the brink of another civil war. Of course, Bree and her family are only supposed to be on the sidelines, doing the less-involved work that the taboo are left to carry out. Gaea and Armageddon aren't their problem anymore. But someone else has different plans. Adventure turns to nightmare, past secrets become today's haunts, the stakes are far too high this time, and worse yet... It seems one of the siblings has gone traitor. T for the same reasons as the other two.
The Dead Can't Testify - A lengthy
The Daughter of Darkness: Razed - Fourth in DoD. REDEEMABLE SPOILER ALERT. Our readers and characters were warned, time and time again, what would happen next - I kid you not, I was blatant as I could be in Say Cheese. Can you catch on fast enough? Or will it be the end of you, too? (Yes. Too. Lots of character death. Guess away). More action-paced. Starts light-hearted and funny and then gets devastating. Our Michael Grant side is emerging. T for slight language use, violence, some darker themes, a touch of mature humor... same as the others. Seriously, I really hope you paid attention, especially in Rebels...
(WARNING) We often take hiatuses without announcing them. We kind of expect people to understand that fanfiction is not our primary focus; school, life, and sometimes physical health come first. We wish we could write a bit more often, but don't. However, we will NEVER give up on a story; if you are patient enough, you'll ALWAYS get to read the end, and that we can promise whole-heartedly.
An Eye For an Eye Makes the World Blind - Ethan Nakamura fanfiction. Written by both Nic and Nyx, however the story and main plot belong to Nic. Unique AU plot line (one a single canon decision is changed) and occurs after TLO. In progress and, no matter when it is completed, will be posted after the DoD series is finished. Has some very, very dark themes and scenes. Rating has not yet been determined, but will likely be M.
Shingeki no (Attack on) Greece - One-shot parody combining PJatO and AoT/SNK. Highly likely to be rated T. (NOTE: may not be published)
Random One-Shots - May be for any series, a funny crack-fic, poetic tragedy, a collection of one-shots, or a parody. Keep an eye out for them. They kind of appear on the computer a lot, so chances are a few will make it here for your enjoyment. We will tell who who wrote each one in their respective AN's.
They are not our main focus, though we put them up often. Always on our profile.
*TO BE REWRITTEN SOON*
A word from Nyx to all other young fiction authors out there. Copy and paste if you wish. It just needs to be said, and needs to be heard;
You may be a reject. You may not be smooth with the spoken word. You may be the most popular kid in school. You may be the boss at your office. You may be short or tall or heavy or light or anorexic or white or dark or struck by an unfriendly label. You may be the homeless guy on the corner or the one inside the store signing books as you hand them out. You may listen to Justin Bieber or to Three Days Grace. But what you are is a writer; never doubt the power of what you can do. Tell me, what did you learn more from this year; the President, or the Hunger Games? The senator or Rick Riordan? The public speaker or Clarissa Fray? Your boss or Pi Patel? American Idol or the Twilight Saga? A list of facts or Harry Potter? Which of them stole the most of your time? Which is more well-known?
It's the book. Every time. People fail to realize flaws in our society in their own lives, but they see it in District Twelve and in the Capitol. Books make clear what we can't see with the naked eye. Authors are the ones that speak to people's hearts. Writers are the ones people turn to for lessons and entertainment. It's been this way for thousands of years. We are the teachers of every child who opens a book. The themes we write are the themes they learn. We are there in every life, a quiet influence bound in a pretty cover, months' worth of work and reading, colored with imagery built around the lightning rod of an unforgettable plot line. A story spent months reading is memorable more than a speech listened to for just five minutes. I can't name all the leaders of the world right now, nor what they decide to preach about, but I can tell you all the characters from Percy Jackson, and every little thing they taught me. And they are things worth learning.
So don't think there's a better way to make a point. Don't think there's a better way to reach your audience. Fiction stories have been striking the hearts of their readers farther back than anyone alive can remember. And striking the heart is what makes literature so different from everything else. Don't ever doubt your ability to show someone something new, to teach them a life lesson, or the importance of what you have to say. Say it in this foreign language everyone knows. Decorate it with characters and light it with sights and smells and sounds and touches and tastes and give it to the public gift-wrapped with your finest effort. Because I guarantee you, someone is bound to hear you clearer than they've heard anyone else before.
I hope you've found some words of inspiration. The world needs it desperately. Do us all a favor, all you writers, and come out of hiding. We've had the greatest influence of all over people of the past, and as we act now, we are the ones influencing the future. We have more knives and pens than the BVB Army, more sway in society than the Senate, (whom we have proved this to before), more power than any celebrity you could name. I'm calling on you now. Rise up. I dare you to write something today that readers won't forget. I challenge you to make someone cry with one thin little page of text. I urge, no, I demand you to put something down on paper that'll be copied and produced and remembered for longer than Ancient Mythologies have been. I dare you to slam a revolving door*. I demand you to write a message in the folds of a book and watch how, in awe, people unwrap it. Watch your footprints stand bold against the falling snow and refuse to be covered. It is all possible, I assure you. You have no idea just what power you hold in a pen - or a keyboard - until you use it.
And right now, the world needs you to use it more than ever.
We, writers, have made history. We were the ones to record it. And that ability has not changed at all, just our awareness and will to use it. We were given the gift language and storytelling for a reason.
This is that reason. It's calling. So ask yourself what message you want to send. Ponder about what you want to say. Because the world is listening to us above all other beings currently on this earth. Us, not the movies, not the official-labeled politicians, not the superstars. And it's our job to give it a story worthwhile.
To slam a revolving door, put a person inside it first. See, I told you it was possible*. XP
A dare from Nic to all creative people out there; List as many uses for a screwdriver as you can.
