Hello, everyone. I'm TheCartoonFanatic01, and I'm just here so I can write. And get reviews. But mainly just write.
And, as you can guess from my name, I'm a cartoon fanatic, although I've also become an anime fanatic as well. I specialize in writing fics about both fields, but I sometimes think about dabbling in other fields.
ENJOY MY PROFILE!

Update (June 22, 2016)
As promised, an explanation, here in my profile.
Now, you may be wondering why I suddenly put all of my stories on temporary hold and redirected you here. Well, sadly, I have an explanation for you. Starting last month, I've been having problems trying to continue work on my stories. To bluntly say it, I sort of lost my motivation to keep writing.
Okay, I know that sounds bad, but there's no reason to worry! This revelation doesn't mean I plan on bailing out of this site or whatever. I fully intend to stay here for a couple more years at the very least. But indeed, my writing's completely gone to the backburner and I just couldn't force myself to work on any of my existing stories. Not even when summer break was upon me (I'm now taking summer school).
I realized how much of a problem this was last week and decided to do some soul-searching in an attempt to discover the root of it. I also compared and contrasted all of my stories. After doing some serious digging, I came to the very likely conclusion that I was unhappy with my current writing style and how I've been going about treating my current stories, hence my writing problem. And now's the time for a little history lesson.
With my first stories, I wrote simplistic chapters, usually in the range of 3,000-5,000 words. I also commonly wrote chapters that had less and even slightly more words than that. Rarely did I ever write something that was 7,000 words long. But with my later ones, I've been writing chapters that were 8,000 words long, with two of them ("Judgment's Fall" and "Fate/Rule Zero") usually needing chapters that were more than 10,000 WORDS due to the complexity I set up in their plots. And I had three stories to work on at once (four if you don't count the "Shirobako" fic I've been neglecting for nearly a year now). It might not sound like a workload to some, but to me, it was, and it was sort of dragging me down a little.
I would also like to blame school for this unfortunate series of events as well, but I'm not going to waste any more time rambling about that.
Because of that, I made the decision to put my stories on hold and give myself a breather by, ironically, writing a new fanfic and focusing my efforts solely on that one. And this new fic would adhere to my old writing style (the one where I just write shorter chapters). I don't know what kind of fanfic it's going to be just yet, because I'm still trying to debate on whether I should write for a familiar fandom or jump into a new one. Chances are it could be for "Pokémon" again, because I have a lot of ideas brewing around in my head for that franchise.
When I'm done with that fic (which hopefully will be quick enough), I may either do another fic with the same writing style (which will hopefully be just as quick), or start the existing ones back up again. It depends on if I still need a breather or not.
So yeah, long story short, dissatisfaction with my writing has led me to put my stories on temporary hold, and I am going to try and return to my old writing style for a moment to get my writing mojo back on. Sorry for all the disappointment, ladies and gents, but life is hard sometimes. We must learn to persevere.
Update (August 21, 2016)
It is done. I have published a new story. It's about an anime that seems to be under the radar for most people, so I hope it gets the attention it deserves. I intend to write 13 chapters, and the plot is pretty simple and straightforward, so my best guess is that I will be done with it in under a month. Then it will be onward to a story idea I have for "Pokémon"!

Regarding my OCs:
I am very (and I mean VERY) lax with other people using my OCs in their stories. I believe in sharing OCs, because sharing is caring. So, if any of you wish to use any of my OCs, feel free to do so! I just have a few rules regarding the usage of my OCs by others other than myself:
1) Consult with me first and tell me of your plan of using at least one of my OCs. There is a 95% chance I'll give you my approval.
2) Do make sure your story featuring my OC will be in the same category of fanfiction as my stories featuring the OC. For example, you plan on using an OC I created for a "Phineas and Ferb" fanfic. Make sure your story is a "Phineas and Ferb" fanfic too, or at least a crossover between that category and some other one. I create my OCs specifically for the categories in mind; they won't be able to fit anywhere else.
3) Make sure they're in-character. If you have no idea how to do that, just read the story or stories you found them on. If you really want them to go through a major character development that might stray away from their usual characterization, consult with me. I'll help you work it out if I can.
4) ALWAYS CREDIT ME FOR THE CREATION OF THAT OC OR OCS. It's the law of the land.
Happy writing! :D
