In a dimension where dragons in human form roam, a darker species struggles to come to light. They are the chaos. They are spiteful. They have no morals. They taint whatever they touch.
In the human world, a half blooded dragon was born. An abomination. Her parents were killed for committing such a crime, but Austin was kidnapped and taken in by one of them. She grew up as chaos dragons do, despite somehow remaining pure of their filth. She was, of course, rescued by the brightest minds of the opposing force. She was hidden in the human world until she would posses the power needed to defend herself.
Except, months before that time would come, the chaos have found her again. In order to protect her, she is brought to their home world--Affelil. In the famous stronghold, she is safe. No chaos in their right mind would dare infiltrate the city's walls, but chaos dragons are exactly known for their sanity.
Still, Austin isn't going down without a fight. She will learn the ways of their kind, how to defend herself, and along the way, she'll learn how to make a mean cup of tea. She is evolving. She is adapting. Still, there's a war brewing inside her; her human and dragon blood is fighting, ideals fighting against tradition. Like the chaos, her human side is fighting to be heard.

-I review WHATEVER I want to review. If your story deserves a flame, I will flame. If it deserves criticism, I will critic. If it’s awesome, I will praise. No matter what I say, I will always review under my own name. I’m not a coward. If I have something to say, I’ll be sure to let you know that I’m the one saying it.
-I love it when you guys say WHATEVER is one your mind (my stories suck, they're unoriginal, you shall burn in the flames of hell for FOREVER MOAR, etc.) Just please stop giving me “luv it” and “update soon”. I like reviews to be helpful to something more than my ego! You will NEVER here me say 'don't like, don't read'.
(And just a tip: a flame is a straight up insult, in my opinion. Concrit contains constructive criticism. If you tell me I've flamed you when I honest to goodness think I didn't, then out comes ALL the insults I was holding back. Fair warning) _
Tips for Wiriting a Fanfiction:
1. Get a beta. A beta is an online person that edits your fan fiction for free. You can usually find betas on the website you publish your fan fiction on. A great place to find betas is www.fanfiction.net. This site categorizes betas into categories according to movies, books, cartoons, tv, etc.
2. Write about characters you're familiar with. You may like Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Carribean, but if you've only seen one movie out of the four, chances are you're not familiar enough with the character to write about him. A good way to start is by writing about characters you've known since childhood--for example, Disney characters.
3. Watch the movie/read the book again to re-familiarize yourself with the character. It's amazing how much we miss because a story or movie is so familiar to us. Write notes as you go along about particular idiosyncrasies of the main characters--for example, how they dress and speak and how they react to conflict. Especially note trademarks of the characters--for example, Jack Sparrow's lazy swagger or his broken compass.
4. Keep switches from points of view to a minimum. Point of view is who is telling the story within the story. It's a good idea for at least your first story to keep it in a third-person point of view, for example, "Jack Sparrow ambled along the deck." However, if you think your story demands switches from Jack's point of view to Will Turner's, keep it to at least every other chapter. Don't switch point of view within a chapter; it's too confusing to the reader.
5. Read others' fanfiction in the category you want to write in for ideas and inspiration. Reading others' work is critical to any writer because it gives you a chance to see how other writers write, and what techniques you can "borrow" from other writers. Seeing how their version of Jack reacts to conflict and how they move the plot along helps your writing improve.
6. Accept Constructive Critism, no matter how harsh it may seem.The reviewer isn't commenting about how suckish your life's work is or your talent as a writer. They're trying to help your story.
7. Dialouge.A poor fanfiction has more talk than thoughts. There is always a thought behind a sentence. be sure to share it. Unless you're writing Nudge from Maximum Ride, then cut most of the unnecessary dialouge off. _
My Opinion on How Maximum Ride Characters are Incorrectly Portrayed:
Nudge- I feel like she is the one who is done the most wrong. Yes, she talks a lot. However, she doesn't talk or prattle on about stupid stuff. She'll go off on a tangent, but she's just using a lot of words to express one point. She can use a thousand words to describe how she's worried about Max. Either the author makes her blather randomly, or they forget her need for talk and have her only say a sentence or two.
Fang- Now, none of us really know what goes on in Fang's mind. What we do know is this, he is silent. He speaks in one word sentences. Except if he's telling Max that he loves her or is giving a pep talk to his new Flock, he's not going to talk that much. STOP MAKING HIM SAY SPEECHES!
Max- She is brave and is used to having people follow her. That doesn't mean she'll make people do anything she wants. Her orders are always for the good of the Flock. And she will never hurt or yell at anyone in the Flock unless someone is hurt. If you write about her getting kicked out of the Flock, she's not going to yell at them. She'll give a small speech about how they're being stupid, and then she'll fly off.
Iggy- Actually, he's done pretty well. He's angsty because he wants to see, but doesn't bring up his sight often unless he's making a joke. And he's almost as sarcastic as Max. this is proven by his first line ever being...Bite me.
Angel- she hasn't always been this psychotic power hungry demon and she still isn't. Even though she may stray to the bad side, inside she'll always be with Max. Angel would give her life for Max's in a second if the time came, but she just forgets that sometimes. She can be innocent and she deserves her happy ending.
Gazzy- He's always brave, except when his sister is involved. Angel is his biggest weakness because she is his biggest bond. He will always be Angel's big brother. I understand that you might have to make him OOC sometimes, but in the end...he'll always come through.
Jeb- He is sometimes portrayed as evil, but not overbearingly evil. He always thinks that he is doing the right thing for the Flock.
