Hello, everyone! This is Miss Singing in the Rain here for your FanFiction forecast. First, a little background info on yours truly. I formerly wrote on the Cartoon Network Star Wars the Clone Wars Fan Fiction site but as they refused to publish the most recent chapters of my story, "The Final Battle", I felt it best to move on. My code name on there was Princess Mia Skylark and I published "The Battle of Glee Anselm", "Death Watch", and my then in-progress work "The Final Battle". As you have probably already gathered I love Star Wars, in addition to Harry Potter, Glee, and Doctor Who. All of these fandoms have had a great impact on my life and all of them can help put a spring in my step and a smile on my face. The main reason I write FanFiction, other than entertainment and enjoyment, is practice. I want to be an author when I grow up and this seems like a good way to get started.

Things I love About Fan Fiction: People are able to express themselves, be creative, read and write stories for free, get better at writing, and share their ideas with the whole web.
Things I dislike about Fan Fiction: Plagiarism, overly perfect/stereotypical/unreal characters (I don't actually mind them that much as long as the plot's good. However, I prefer realistic characters), people who don't update for lengthy periods of time (as in several months), really good stories/series on hiatus or that are just stopped, stories that restate what happened in the original and the only difference being who says and does certain things (you can change and add to the story in Fan Fiction), people who hold their stories hostage by refusing to update until they get so many reviews, and people who give flames and not constructive criticism or who bully people who write bad stories.
The Ten Commandments of Fan Fiction (taken from here: ):
Thou shalt have no canon but Canon. Thou shalt not confuse fanon with canon. For if thou writest fanfic, thou shalt obey the laws of the universe in which thou writest.
"But what about AUs?" said the Author.
"Thou canst write AUs only if thou dost demonstrate an understanding of Canon," said the Lord God.
"And crossovers?" the Author asked, in the midst of the thunder.
"Crossovers are one of the blessings of the land of Fanfic," the Lord God said. "But a knowledge of Canon precedes them all."
Thou shalt not make thee any Mary-Sues, whether they be in thine own likeness, the likeness of canon characters, nor in any other likeness. Thou shalt not give them improbably long hair, nor exotic names, nor shalt thou make them fairer and smarter and more loveable than all mankind, for probability distortions are anathema unto me. Thou shalt not indulge yourself in them, nor serve them, for they are too perfect, and take the attention away from the other characters. Thou shalt not worship thy characters, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation of them that hate me, and showing loving kindness unto to thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments. (*Again, I actually don't mind Mary-Sues all that much, as long as it's got a good plot. I mean, a lot of the Disney Princesses are sort of Mary-Sues yet I still enjoy Disney movies.*)
Thou shalt not take the name of the Prime Authors in vain, for verily, thou art playing in their sandpit. If thou hatest the way a continuing series hast been written, thou shalt speak softly, and quietly write AUs, not squabble about it in a loud and unseemly fashion. For without the Prime Authors, thou wouldst not have a sandpit to play in, and thus they deserve respect.
Keep the stories free to sanctify them. Make thou no profit upon your labour, for profit is a thing of the land of Copyright and Trademark, and will put you in the power of their Lawyers.
Remember that you were a servant in the land of Copyright and Trademark, and that the LORD your God brought you out there through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore the LORD your God commanded you to keep the stories free. (*cough* 50 Shades of Grey *cough*)
Thou shalt honor thy fellow authors, as the Lord your God has commanded you; that the days of your writing may be long, and that it may go well with you, in the stories which the Lord your God giveth you.
Thou shalt not insult the intelligence of thy readers. Thou shalt not bore them with info-dumps. Thou shalt resist the urge to explain. For thy readers are at least as intelligent and well-read as thou art, and shouldst not be likened unto a ten-year-old child.
Thou shalt remember that character is plot, and that plot is character.
Thou shalt not steal, moreover thou shalt not plagiarize. For plagiarizing is a sin against Creation and against Me, says the Lord your God. I shalt cast off all plagiarizers and they shall no longer have the name of Author.
"What about ideas?" the Author said.
"I, the Lord your God, am the giver of Ideas." The Lord God Almighty pointed to the daisies in the field. "Every story is different, just as every daisy is different."
"They all look the same to me," the Author muttered.
"However, it is polite to acknowledge your inspirations," the Lord God said.
Thou shalt show and thou shalt not tell, says the Lord your God. For telling dost remove the vividness from the story.
Thou shalt use beta-readers, for thou art not perfect, and fresh eyes can see the flaws that thou hast overlooked. To refuse to use beta-readers is the sin of Pride, for which Lucifer was cast out of Heaven; for even the best and the brightest of Authors dost have need of them.
(P.S. I'm not very religious, I just put it there because it's funny and accurate to me)

Mary Iris Noble (Dirty Little Secrets):

Psychological Profile (by Dr. Jeremiah Arkham)
Name: Mary Iris Noble. Age at internment: six years old. Family: Father – Richard Noble, Mother – Patience Noble, Brother – Justin Noble. Patient suffers from: spells of hallucinations, mental instability, sociopathic tendencies, self-control disorder, and possibly schizophrenia. Warning: Has bitten and/or scratched two doctors to date.
Patient suffers from a form of mental illness the likes I have never come across. The patient appears to be completely normal and sane upon first glance but a few sessions later I have come to the conclusion that she is anything but. For a girl of merely six she extremely literate and well spoken, capable of reading middle and high school level material with ease, solving basic algebra and geometry problems, as well as picking up on everything from psychics to psychology… she also disturbs me. It is as though she is able to look into the minds of others just by looking into their eyes. She… knows things. Things that only I have known. My special patients I personally attend to… my relationship with Alyce… my fears about my own mental health… the true nature of my uncle… I am beginning to see why her parents donated so generously to the Asylum after incarcerating her within its walls.
Her ‘spells’ appear to come irregularly and without much warning.
She is very observant and prefers to bite those who believe she is lying about what she sees.
Very observant and good at discovering secrets, especially those that were always meant to be hidden.
SHE IS TO NEVER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY AGAIN.
Anastasia Andreyv (Escape From Arkham City):
Appearance: Dark red hair, pale, tall, thin, early forties (Carla Gugino in Sucker Punch).
Profession: Madame of Gotham's Underworld and former prostitute.
Style: Leather, corsets, stiletto heels, boots, long flowing skirts.
Girls: Lucy (Emily Browning in Sucker Punch), Jeannie AKA the Joker girl (Julia Stiles), Gilda AKA the girl in the black suit (Lana Parilla), Grace AKA the girl in the white suit (Jennifer Morrison), Alice AKA the girl in the Alice costume (Mia Wasikowska), Chase AKA the Riddler girl (Nicole Kidman), Veronica AKA the Penguin (Karen Gillian).
Strengths: Has ties with almost all of Gotham's major criminals, skilled in seduction as well as many forms of weaponry and hand to hand combat.
Weaknesses: Dependence on drugs, alcohol, and cigarettes can prove problematic when cut off in a place like Arkham City where resources are hard to come by. Her loyalty to her girls can also make her reckless if provoked.
Valentine (The Maid of the Populaire):
Appearance: Red hair, pale, thin, mid to late twenties, scars across her face (played by Laura Osnes)
Profession: Maid, Artist
Other Maids: Lorraine (Lesley Nicol), Nicole (Samantha Barks), Bridgette (Heather Morris), Bernadette (Brittany Snow)
Strengths: Courage, Artistic
Weaknesses: Naivety, cigarettes, drug use, clumsiness, self-depreciation, weirdness, cool loser.
That's all you really need know about me and my characters and stories for the time being. Until then, Miss Singing in the Rain bids adieu, adieu, to you, and you, and you. Goodbye!
