Mysite, , where I mirror my writing because it lets me add pictures. You can find a few pictures there from my "No Game For Old Men" story as well as pics inspired by other stories here. The tumblr page is for posting pics, including Not Safe For Work pics AND for posting sections of chapters from NGFOM that are beyond this site's lemon limit. In other words, there IS grown up content on that page, both pictures and text. Don't click it then complain to me you saw a naked woman on it or read some naughty words.
Most pics also uploaded to mypage.
It amazes me how much fan-fiction there is, based on visual media (anime, manga, etc) yet so little visual media to support and enhance the writing here. So I post the pictures I create or find for my stories along with my stories themselves, each chapter posted at myat the same time as I will post them here.
Sekirei, Season One and Season Two! It's not officially canon, but it's the best estimate we could make from analyzing every episode of Season One and Season Two.
6/2/13 - Hard to believe that in the one and a half years since I started reading fanfiction on this site I've read over 19 million words of really good fanfiction stories. That's how many are in the 100 stories in my Favorites list as of this date. Mind boggling. THANK YOU to all of the amazing authors who have given me so much entertainment since I started reading here.
HEY, FAN-FICTION REVIEWERS!
My biggest pet peeve with reviewers? Lazy-ass criticism through the use of such terms as "Gary Stu" or "Mary Sue" or "Marty Stu" and so on.
Is Naruto a Gary Stu in Naruto-canon? Is Harry Potter a Gary Stu? (Okay, bad example, an argument can be made that Potter is a grossly Gary Sue character, but does that invalidate the novels?) How about Shirou; is he a Gary Stu in Fate/Stay Night canon?
An author of a story has a story they want to tell. If it's fanfiction then the story will have something to do with an existing setting, characters, story. It might just be the setting the author likes, so they tell their story in a setting someone else invented. Maybe they like the canon story, but want to modify it a bit. There's no "right way" or "wrong way" to write fanfiction, it's the author's story to tell. Maybe they tell it well, maybe they tell it poorly, but criticizing an author for daring to tell it at all, well, that's just being a dick.
If someone wants to criticize a fanfiction effort they should criticize it in comparison to the canon writing. If you don't like someone's OC in a Naruto story, don't just call the OC a "Mary Sue" and think you've made some profound observation; you haven't. Compare your issues with the OC to the canon characters and tell us why the OC is overpowered, too focused on, and so forth. Because unless Naruto, Minato, Harry Potter, Tsukune, and so forth are all Gary Stu characters, criticizing a fanfiction story for having an OC that's central to the tale, that's competent and/or powerful, is just weak ass butthurt whining.
Yes, it IS possible to write a fanfiction story with original characters that are the center of the story, that are competent, that accomplish great deeds, that romance favorites among the canon characters, and have that story BE A GOOD STORY. Judge the story in comparison to the canon material, don't just dismiss someone's work because "Oh, all OC's are Mary Sues".
For god's sake, people DO realize that the canon characters are ALL "OC's", right?
Currently Working On:
No Game For Old Men - (Sekirei) - Not all Ashikabi are young men with blank slate simple lives. The Sekirei Plan does untold damage to Sekirei and Ashikabi alike; the story of 37 Madoka, 44 Yosuga, and their Ashikabi.
Current Status - Semi stalled out. I so want to share this story, but am struggling with the writing of it.
Big thanks and props to Fenschway, author of several Sekirei stories, including "The Game Changer", which I consider to be the most significant Sekirei story on this site. In the face of fan rage (including a few of my own scorching reviews!) and canon purists, Fenschway had the balls to tell a story that is truly unique and not just another "What if Minato was a Half Drow/Half Demon Professor of Alchemy at Hogwarts while on vacation from his missions with the Avengers!??". His story might not be to everyone's taste, but it does have a great deal of inventiveness and imagination, delving far deeper into the Sekirei setting and premise than the mangaka does in canon, that's for sure.
Fenschway has helped me greatly in collaboration in my story "No Game For Old Men", and that story wouldn't be half as good if I hadn't had his input. His Sekirei/Wolverine-Logan stories get a lot more attention and reviews and favorites, but "The Game Changer" shows great imagination and setting-building!
General Info About Me:
I am a fan of Sekirei, Rosario, High School of the Dead, Elfen Lied, Canaan, Clannad, Steins;Gate, some others. Enjoying the fanfic more than the anime in many cases. In most cases, actually.
I only recently came into enjoying Anime and Manga, I was scrolling through Netflix streaming catalog and on a whim decided to watch "Spice and Wolf".
Now, I'd seen a few anime that people had highly recommended, before. "Ghost in the Shell", and some of Evangelion. Frankly, they left me cold. I liked the artwork, sure. What's not to like about pretty girls in revealing outfits? But the stories didn't do anything for me. They seemed unnecessarily convoluted, vague, and yet flat at the same time.
But when I was laying there in bed, snacking on Ritz crackers and peanut butter, just relaxing on a weekend evening, watching the first few episodes of "Spice and Wolf" I just really fell in love with the story and the characters. For the first time I "got it" with anime. Watched the first season through entirely, then went and found the subtitled second season and watched it off some crappy streaming website.
Then I found the manga and read through all of it off some other websites. And still wanted more!
There's been several anime that I've watched since then that got me that semi-obsessed. Most of these I've read the manga for after watching the anime.
1. Clannad (and After Story and the Another World spins and the movie)
2. High school of the Dead
3. Elfen Lied
5. Spice and Wolf
10. Dance in the Vampire Bund
13. This Ugly Yet Beautiful World
16. Fate/Stay Night and Fate/Zero
17. Heaven's Lost Property - hilarious, light-hearted
Stuff I *didn't* like and dropped after a few episodes.
3. Kaze no Stigma
4. Ghost in the Shell
5. Evangelion (any and all of them)
6. Fullmetal Alchemist
Stuff I liked so much that I'm always looking for more fanfic of:
4. Fate/Stay Night and Fate/Zero
5. Naruto (an example of one that I really dislike the source material, both the manga and the anime but there's so much awesome fanfic written on it that it's on my list to check for new stuff all the time)
My favorite anime? Currently I'd say the original Fate/Stay Night series as well as the light novel. A serious story with excellent artwork and a well detailed world that wasn't afraid to actually have some sex scenes in it. Too damn rare, imho.
My favorite fanfiction category? I'd say Sekirei. There just aren't enough Sekirei stories, imho, and too many that are here are incomplete and/or poorly written. Eternally grateful to the excellent works in that category by Lord of the Land of Fire, Fenschway, and Gabriel Blessing.
Big fan of Nelson Chereta's (that's Lord of the Land of Fire, FYI) ' ' novel, one of our own here on fan fiction.net has his first actual novel out! It is on Amazon, check it out!
