Hello fellow readers!
You are all so lovely. I love every single one of you.
Oh, and if you are looking for any resources or writing tips or prompts even, just check out my newly made writing tumblr!
*Just as a reminder*I am currently working on rewriting my Hunger Games/ Pretty Little Liars crossover! :)
Also, I am working on rewriting my Maximum Ride fic as well.
Well, partially a lie.
I am working on thinking of ideas for rewriting it once again because it much too closely resembles The Angel Experiment. Although, I am not currently rewriting it because that is a lot of revision. How much, you may ask? Over seventy five chapters, I reply.
Anyway, thank you for sticking with me and my crap for who knows how long. Or maybe you are new here, then welcome, lovely.
Some stuff that I wish I knew when I first started FanFiction
1. Canon- From the book, of the book, completely in line with the facts stated in the book. Often pairings. (Example: PEETA/KATNISS)
2. Non-canon- When it is not from the book. (Example: Clove/Cato)
3. Slash- Guy with guy stories. (Example: Cato/Marvel)
4. Femeslash- Girl with girl stories. (Example: Clove/Glimmer)
5. Smut- M stuff, particularly what Fanfiction.net so tastefully refers to as 'Adult themes'.
6. Lemon- Really M stuff. Even worse than smut.
7. Flames- Mean reviews. When you trash a fic.
8. OC- Original Character. When you make up your own character, i.e. not a canon character.
9. OOC- Out Of Character- When a canon character is not accurate. (Example: When President Snow runs around singing "Nobody's Perfect" and hands out unicorn stickers to first graders.)
10. IC- The opposite of OOC. stands for In Character. When a cannon character is written accurately. This is something all fanfiction authors should strive for in their stories, and a strong compliment in a review.
11. AU- Alternate Universe- When the story is set in a different universe than that the author has created. This comes under two main headings, one, a different setting, for example Harry Potter in the alian-spaceship-science-fiction-genre, or Eragon in a modern american High School setting. The other is when the storyline was gone in a different direction to the original book, if that makes sense. Generally a certain character did not die when they did in the original or a situation went in a different direction. Examples: A story set during Eldest, in an alternate universe in which Brom didn't die at the beginning of Eragon. Or a story set in a universe in which Vodemort went after Neville and his parents instead of Harry's, and thus Neville is the chosen one and Harry had a normal childhood.
12. Fluff- Sweet romantic moments. No action/adventure or anything.
13. OTP- Apparently, this means One True Pairing. I assume this means that it's the one pairing you enjoy and stand by. (This is not to be confused with OotP, which means Order of the Phoenix. ;)
14. Ship- A pairing/couple. Comes from relationship. Heh heh. Nudges you Get it? Get it?
15. One-shot; Two-shot; Three-shot- One chapter, two chapters, three chapters. One-shot is the most common of these.
16. Songfic- A fic including, or based upon, a song.
17. Mary Sues- A female character (usually OC, see above) that is favored by the author and pretty much perfect (and thus completely unbelievable) in every way. The sort of character that gets on your nerves by their very existence. Closely realted to this is a...
18. Gary Stu. the less common male counterpart of a Mary Sue. Has all the same characteristics, but is male.
19. A/N- (Or A.N. or AN or any other variation on this theme.) Author's Note. Self-explanatory.
20. AH- All Human. All characters are human. This is not commonly seen.
21. POV- Point of View.
22. R&R- Read and review!
23. Lime- Like Lemon, but not as bad.
24. Drabble- A fic that is from 50-500 words in length. Technicly a fic that is under 100 words but that is quite rare.
25. CC- Constructive Critisism. Really helpful reviews are full of this stuff.
