Well, there's nothing really much to say about me, other then I'm a huge Elder Scrolls and Anime fan to point where I've released several stories on it.
Likes: Long and well written fanficions, Skyrim, FMA, Naruto and Mortal Kombat. DOUGHNUTS, Machinama's TFTW Channel, RedvsBlue, Fairy Tail, D.Gray-Man
Dislikes: BADLY written fanfics, short fanfics, Naruto Harem fics and Godlike Naruto fics (There are a shit ton of the of them). Abandoned well-written fanfics. Also, Summaries that overuse "What if", it's just evidence of lazy writing.
Sex: Male of course
Age: OVER 9000!
Location: the darkest part of your room...nice ass by the way.
Well, hello there my name is Guardian Soul, but my friends call me Guardian Soul, which is appropriate seeing as it's my name.
Note: I don't, per say, hate Naruto Harem stories, if they're done correctly. My beef with them, is that they tend to be so OOC'ish. Naruto is not someone who does polygemy, as it goes against his personality.That, and none of the females he's with LIKE him in that way. Harems, in my perspective, are perverted FANTASIES spawned by the minds of those who over-glorify Naruto's image.
Note 7/20/13: Harems are a selfish sexual fantasy. They are an insult to not just the characters who partake in a polygamist relationshiop, but to females in general. In Flight by Gabriel blessing where the polygamous relationship is part of the plot and makes total sense in the narrative and is fully aware of how fucked up a relationship is with multiple simultaneous partners really is, is the one exception I will likely ever make in regards to such a story.
Reasons why I don't support NaruHina
1. Extremely overused pairing. Filter it into the criteria and you get 430 pages with 25 stories per page, that's 10,750 stories with that pairing (not even counting those in crossovers). Compare that to my favourite pairing of Naruto x Female Kyuubi, only has 60 pages with 25 stories per page that is only 1500 stories (which of that, not all are female Kyuubi and not all are pairing stories). And people have the nerve to review saying that Fem!Kyuubi is overdone...
2. Ridiculous settings. Hinata loves Naruto because she admired him throughout the academy as a source of inspiration and courage, correct? Then please tell me why the fuck that a Naruto who had been trained away from the village during his childhood, still has Hinata falling for him when he comes back to take the Genin Exams?! That's the same as saying she is a shallow fangirl attracted to looks and 'coolness'...
3. Ridiculous OOCness. Naruto influenced by Kyuubi to leave the village, develops a deep set hatred for Konoha, falls for Hinata?! Dafuq did I just read? Naruto banished by the village, joins another village, marries Hinata?! What the fuck? Naruto banished for failing the Sasuke retrieval mission, Hinata just ups and decides to abandon her family, friends and village to follow him?! The same Hinata who couldn't form a coherent sentence in his presence?!
4. Naruto himself. Many NaruHina fans fail to see Naruto as an actual living character, choosing to blindly look at Hinata only. Naruto has his own feelings and preferences, which has been shown in canon. It's quite obvious that Naruto's personality quirks are a mixture of his parents, his expressive, out-spoken and brash attitude from Kushina. His learning curve, battle instincts, ramen obsession and taste in women from Minato. Name a redhead in Konoha... none right? Name the closest person with reddish hair... Sakura right? Minato loves Kushina's red hair and Naruto has a crush/love on Sakura, whose hair is the closest thing to red in their village.
5. Naruto's feelings. Due to his lack of a proper upbringing in canon, Naruto is basically ill-informed and dense like a rock. Despite that, he clearly expresses his feelings for Sakura (not saying I support NaruSaku, just a logical explanation of canon). What NaruHina fans are doing is taking a one-sided relationship and declaring that it is mutual, which is not the case at all! When has Naruto ever shown any form of attraction to Hinata, better yet, HOW many times have they actually interacted with each other?! He obviously is not attracted to Hinata so please stop the 'a beautiful girl with midnight blue hair in a hime-styled cut and lavender eyes, he knew it was love at first sight'... Naruto has seen Hinata multiple times... none of which has EVER left him googly-eyed...
6. Hinata's confession. Naruto completely ignored it... not even bothering to confront her about it after the defeat of Nagato. Hell, he didn't even bother to check up on her condition... (I know Nagato had revived everyone but if he cared, he would have shown at least some form of concern).
7. Hinata's feelings. Her love stemmed from admiration, she admired him for his persistent attitude and courage. She claims that watching him improve makes her want to better herself, using him as a source of inspiration. Now does that sound like lovers love or sisterly love hmm? Very much like how a younger sister idolizes her 'amazing' elder brother and trying to improve so as to impress him and gain his approval hmm? Her feelings are easy to write-off as sisterly...
You can copy & paste this into your profile if you agree with it.
Or you can bitch and rant at me about how much you love NaruHina and how 1337 and AWESHOME it is in a private message... no promises that I will actually read it before deleting it...
Guardian Soul's Ever-growing List of Story Advice:
Summary: Give a short, to the point analysis on what the story is about. Or give a qoute or foreshadowing statement. NEVER open with a question; because you're not going to be able to control how your reader responds. Examp: "What if the Uchiha Clan had never been massacred? What if they adopted Naruto and gave him a Sharringan?" To all authors who have used this in their summary's, do you have any idea how awkward this sounds? Do you not read it aloud to yourselves?
Grammar: Grammar in stories are all-important, no exceptions about it. Proof read, get a beta, do anything to make your story look AND sound good. No 'text' language what so ever!
Pacing: An important aspect of a narrative that is the most overlooked as I've come to see on this site. Surprisingly, the only concern I commonly see amongst the community related
