Quote: "Where am I going, and why am I in this Hand-basket?"
-I've posted over 3,000 reviews in my FF.net life.
-My 1,000th review was to For the Love of my Friends by Foxie-sama.
-My 2,000th review was to That Stupid Dream by paws-bells.
-My 3,000th review was to Second Chance by Tri17.
-I'm very picky about what I read.
-I have a superstition that the 14th chapter of every story is either very good, or very significant--I find myself correct more times than not.
-I will occasionally do very heavy critique on a work I've read. If you've received such, know that it is not a flame.
-I hate yaoi.
-I know American Sign Language to an extent, and enough Japanese to order some coffee.
-I'd take a good werewolf story over a vampire one any day.
-I refuse to acknowledge the Last Airbender movie as anything more than a bad fanfiction.
-The people on my favorite's list are actually my favorite.
-I've read each story on my favorite's list at least three times.
-I read my own stories at least three times before posting to check for consistency, mistakes, plot, characterization, and style.
-I read various manga mainly just for the fanfiction in it's fandom (see Naruto).
-I have odd, but strict tastes in couplings.
-I hate it when people use "bridal style" when describing carrying someone. It's a culture reference, not a descriptive term.
-I judge the quality of a fanfiction mainly on how many reviews per chapter it has and the number of day(s) it's been released.
-I can't stand it when people add a certain religion to a very obviously non-religious fandom. Naruto, for example, comes from a country containing about one percent--ONE percent--of people who believe in the Christian god, and thus any of the characters being Christian is so astronomically unlikely as to be ridiculous. Crosses in Japan are, literally, a fashion statement teenagers wear. Like how Americans wear Kanji.
-I prefer the manga over the anime. The only exception to this is the series Slayers.
-I hate the word "learnt". HATE.
-I refuse to leave disclaimers, because the site itself is "fan"fiction.net. Not Fictionpress.
My Preferred Pairings--
To me, parings make or break a story. I can't read a story in which a couple I don't believe in is present. This is a list in for all my couples I support, in the most major story lines I read.
Sakura-(Neji, Sasuke, Itachi, Sai, Lee sometimes, Gaara, Shino, and I use to like Kakashi too, but that stopped a while ago.)
Harry/Ginny (why do people hate this pairing so much?)
Hermione/Ron (kinda) I do flirt around with other pairings for Hermione, like Voldemort aka Tom, Krum, and Draco. I think Ron is a tad stupid and immature for someone as brilliant as Hermione, but that's just me. If I am writing a HP story, I will 95% likely have Hermione/Draco somewhere in it, if not the featured pairing.
Ooh, random things/sayings!
-The mark of a good fanfiction writer is when someone has read your work, but can't remember that it wasn't actually from the original.
-Pessimism: Every Dark Cloud Has a Silver Lining, But Lightning Kills Hundreds Of People Every Year Who Are Trying To Find It.
-I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world because they'd never expect it.
-We are oft to blame in this--Tis too much proved--that with devoted vintage and pious action, we do sugar o'er the devil himself.
-The greatest intentions causes the greatest harm.
-The purpose of war is not to die for your country, but to make the other bastard die for his.
-It is the military member who salutes the flag, who serves under the flag, and whose coffin is enshrouded by the flag, that allows the protester to burn the flag.
Because JKR didn't expand well on her use of Arithmancy, I have come up with magical meanings for each number. I find it an highly entertaining idea, and love the concept enough to post it publicly in hopes of it catching.
One is simple, let stand alone, letting it be whole, and is represented by Air.
Two is balance, understanding, fulfillment and Water.
Three is power, the meaning of magic, Life. It is second only to seven in it’s ability, but it is inclined more to the natural side such as centaurs, phoenixes, and sphinx and so on. Surprisingly werewolves are included in this, but any ‘undead’ creature is not (Vampires, zombies, and so forth).
Four is taint, poison, lingering, Death. Natural undead creatures (not man-made, like Inferi) fall under the influence of this number, but as it is not as powerful as either three or seven, it doesn't help them all that much.
Five is attack, success, action, Fire. Most often used in warding in caging something or someone.
Six is reflection, deflection, defense, and represents Chance/Luck/Fate. Most often used in warding to protect something or someone.
Seven is the Perfect number, but most things (spells, charms, wards, etc) cannot handle a full seven without a back up of at least a three. It is not represented by anything but itself, though is the combination of Life and Death; four and three. It is more inclined to, instead of natural, to the unnatural; man with magic is an unnatural occurrence, like the gene for red-hair, and is probably why wizards value it so much more then three; it favors them over the ‘half-breeds’.
Eight is plotting, revolution, renewal, Earth.
Nine, being three times three, three plus four plus two, is surprisingly weak against its peers, but it does grant health, wealth, and most especially fertility; naturally, it doesn’t get used often in magic rituals/spells. It is the embodiment of Spirit.
Zero, of course, is nothing, represents nothing, and is the embodiment of nothing. In magical uses, it doesn’t even serve as an abstract theory like it does in true math. Most wizards mistake it to represent Muggles, because of their non-magical state.
If a number is larger then nine, then it equates to the break down of it; the more numbers, the less powerful it is. For instance, thirteen is one and three. It is therefore a whole, powerful, perfectly balanced, and evil—one plus three is four for the evil of it, and three subtract one is two for the balance; thirteen is therefore more evil then four, but less fundamental. A serial killer vs. a Mob boss, for instance. The killer will kill for the sake of killing, but the boss will kill you because of a (selfish) reason.
