Author has written 2 stories for Mercy Thompson series, and Naruto.
I am a college student who enjoys reading other's works. I do not write very often, and when I do write, I tend to write romances. Also, my stories tend to be quite long.
I love reading Naruto fanfictions I have learned, as the world is so damn varied. I am a staunch NaruHina fan, but I also am pretty open minded when it come to pairings. the only ones I refuse to read or write are NaruSaku and any yaoi pairings. I will happily beta read any of these stories, and I would be more than happy to receive suggestions for stories I should read! My reasoning for not wanting to read Naru/Saku stem mainly from my dislike of the way she treats him. And even if that is changed in the fic, it bothers me to see the pairing occurring. That being said, I also dislike bashing, if it doesn't actually lead to character development. A bash now and then is fine; if the person being bashed actually wises up and changes. My other peeves include harems and god-mode characters. The first is simply because most people can't write it. I know I can't, and the only truly successful fic I've read (that wasn't meant to be a complete crack fic) with a harem in it is KyuubiGoku's stuff. My main problem with god-mode characters is that the lack of challenge they have to deal with. If you make a person OP, but subsequently also make the villains OP at the same time then its ok. A good example of this is Karldin's Birth of a Forest. (Bearing in mind that the first couple chapters are a bit rushed, and he gets better over time.)
My main source of fanfics is Naruto, which is both a good and a bad thing. Its good because there are a LOT of fics. Its bad because it becomes harder and harder to find original ideas and content. This is not to say that everyone is ripping each other off, but rather to say that there are only so many ideas that are easy to pick up from nowhere without some serious thought. It is because of this, that although I love Naru/Hina, I encourage people to do other pairings. Especially ones that are not the norm. A mainstream pairing is great for someone who wants to play it safe, and get their mind wrapped around writing romance. But once you have that experience, try branching out a bit, you might find that the other pairings suit your writing style, or even mindset better.
I absolutely ADORE LoZ Twilight Princess fanfics, and will happily read any that are long enough. I'm afraid that I am a very picky reader when it comes to stories, as they have to be long enough to entertain me for a while =P. I read pretty fast and can finish a 100k word fanfic in about 2-3 hours depending on the writing style and the topic. Unfortunately this means that a story has to be pretty dang long for me to keep myself entertained. Still, if anyone has a suggestion for a story, I'm all for it; theres almost never anything better for me to be doing in my day anyways.
I will not read anything about twilight or that series. Period. Its not because of all the teen drama around it, it is simply because I don't like the original story's writing style, not to mention I don't like the way that vampires are portrayed in it. I am not a twilight basher or anything, and if someone else likes that story, then so be it. I don't.
I will also not read stories that contain yaoi. Sorry people, but, even though I even have relatives who are gay, I really dont wan't to read about it. Actually, make that especially since i have said relatives.
Same with Guro and yuri; Its just not my thing.
Other than those topics, I can't think of very many other topics I will refuse to read about. I may add more as time goes on, but for now that'll do.
I dont know if anyone really reads my profile. Probably not. But I will be posting a fic dedicated to posting challenges for other writers. I myself cannot write for the site, as I already have to type an ungodly amount of papers for college. I will be putting my ideas into a story, with each chapter being dedicated to an individual challenge. Most, if not all, of the challenges will involve unusual pairings, and will require the author to be creative in making the situation believable. In addition to the pairings, there will be global requirements on the fics, mainly easy stuff such as no yaoi (ok if its not a main part of the story), yuri (ok if its not a main part of the story), harems, bashing (unless it is brief and leads to character development), or god-mode characters. It may seem that this is a pretty stringent list of requirements, but really its not. I also will ask that each person ask permission before taking up a challenge, mainly so I can keep track of who's doing which one and also so I can check for your other stories, in order to make sure youre up to the task. If I say that I don't think you're ready for a particular challenge, don't take it as an insult. Many of these will be rather difficult, and I myself can be pretty picky when it comes to my reading. Remember I am requesting these stories for my own enjoyment, and as such I would be a bit peeved if they were sub-par. (I feel a bit demanding saying these things, but really I'm pretty lenient. My main peeves are flow, grammar, and spelling. And even then, as long as flow and grammar are fine I can deal with a bit of spelling problems. We all have them.)
I have bad news for anyone who was waiting for me to come out with a revised version of my first naruto story. I do not believe it will happen. I apologize for this, as I know the frustration that occurs when a story is left unfinished. I, unfortunately, cannot make myself stick to a regular writing schedule, both because of college and because of my own personality. I will not be putting the story up for adoption, mainly because I have no idea where I was going to take it. The other factor for this is because it was only a couple chapters long. And the first chapter was abysmal in terms of quality. As such, I can't really see any reason for it to be continued.
I can also say that I will most likely not be able to write stories in general from here on out. I simply do not have the drive, nor the patience to do so. coming up with challenges, on the other hand, I will do with great enjoyment, as I get ideas frequently and just never really act on them.
I hope this doesn't bother anyone too much.
May you find peace in all things,
This is really sweet...
When a girl is quiet, a million things are running through her mind.
When a girl is not arguing, she is thinking deeply.
When a girl looks at you with her eyes full of question, she is wondering how long you will be around.
When a girl answers "I'm fine." after a few seconds, she is not fine at all.
When a girl stares at you, she is wondering why you are lying.
When a girl rests her head on your chest, she is wishing for you to be her's forever.
When a girl wants to see you everday, she wants to be pampered.
When a girl says "I love you." she means it.
When a girl says "I miss you." nobody could miss you more than that.
Life only comes around once, so make sure you spend it with the right person.
Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, and calls you back when you hang up on him.
The guy who will stay awake just to watch you sleep.
Wait for the guy who kisses your forehead,
Who wants to show you off to the world when you are in your sweats.
The one who holds your hand in front of his friends and is constantly reminding you of how much he cares about you and how lucky he is to have you there for him.
The one who turns to his friends and declares "That's her.".
A Tribute Poem: (From Skyflower51, she truly is an amazing writer!)
OATH TO NIRN
I'll think of the DRAGONBORN
PAARTHURNAX will come to mind
SERANA'S who I'll think of
I'll think of ERANDUR if there
I'll treasure ARNGEIR'S wisdom
I'll grin and think of BRYNJOLF
HADVAR and RALOF I'll recall
I'll think of MERCER if someone
I'll think of FARKAS when I meet
If a dad betrays his daughter
I'll think anyone's like ASTRID
I'll think of ONMUND and J'ZARGO
I'll be thinking of AELA
I'll honour SAVOS AREN
You'll find me thinking of MIRAAK
I'll shed a tear for DURNEHVIIR
I vow to think of TAMRIEL
I make this oath because of just
