Author has written 16 stories for Hetalia - Axis Powers, and Scandinavia and the World.
My new title: Deus ex authorum (like that?)
Some things about me:
1. I write for fun, but I do welcome reviews so that I can improve my writing... but please, be specific. :D
2. I am a Hetalia fan, but not really an anime fan (maybe has something to do with the fact that I am a part-time amateur historian and Hetalia portrays history in an entertaining way. I think that's also why I like Scandinavia and the World).
3. Some of this will be one-off short stories.
4. I'm not a big fan of romance stories, but I lied about not writing any... or at least that was my intent when I started out. But they will be clean 'cos I don't like smutty stuff (and definitely NO slash... or yaoi... or whatever the heck the kids call it these days, yes, I'm getting old).
5. I kinda have an erratic writing style, so sometimes I'll start something new before I finish the last one, but I will finish what I start. Promise.
6. I tend towards fluff a lot of the time, but my thinking is this... there is enough angst in real life that I don't really feel the need to add to it.
7.Please, leave a review. I always welcome feedback.
Why all the hate for hetero pairings? I'm not one to judge anyone else, so I won't... but... I just don't understand it. Nor do I understand the hate for Belgium and Seychelles... just because they "mess up the yaoi". Geez. They're both adorable...
I cannot in good conscience support Critics United. I am sorry, but while their goals are admirable... their methods are unneccesary and at times verge on bullying. There IS a difference between being direct and honest, and being harsh and discouraging.
YES, there is a lot of terrible fanfic out there. YES, Mary-Sue or Gary-Stu OCs are ridiculous, BUT... how many Critics United members are Twilight Saga fans? If none of them are I will stand corrected.
Also, how many literary masterpieces are 100% grammatically correct? I don't believe James Joyce's "Ulysses" could be considered grammatically perfect. Nor could many of Dickens' works (run-on sentences, anyone?).
I'm not saying that we should ignore obvious, glaring errors. But, let's correct them in a way that encourages young writers instead of discouraging them.
(And no, I've never been on the receiving end of a review from one of them... I've had an incident with them, but let's just say that rules are rules and I will follow the rules. What I am referring to here is the air of superiority that seems to surround their actual reviews. Help, not hurt, guys... and tearing someone apart with no tact or decorum may scare off many sensitive young writers.)
