I'm an admitted geek and gamer, played runescape for 2 years, wow for 6 years, swtor for a year, FFxiv for a month , FFxi for a few months, now i'm playing Tera. And not once did i play a healer _
I play magic the gathering and DnD as well as a bit of Battlefield 3.
I've been reading FF since gundam wing when I was in 3rd grade. I got caught with some lemons in my possession back then and got into A LOT of trouble. I talked my way out of it and continued to read fan fiction for the next 13 years. (parents are so naive _) Now here i am, 25 and a fan fiction addict and critic. I will read it all but i like things that are original and well written.
I can get past poor writing in small amounts if the story is fantastic (like 50 shades of grey) lol. Admittedly a poorly written book, but as a fan fiction reader I can love the story and the characters anyway.
i've never read twilight, don't care to.
I'm also perfectly willing to beta for anyone who needs it, I don't have the time or the creative power to come up with my own stories anywhere but in my head. I do however have the time and experience to be able to read your story and tell you how to make it better. I'm not fantastic at grammar unfortunately but I am fairly good at making a story flow.
favorite fanfiction categories and pairings:
Grey's anatomy - pretty much any pairing involving mark, except slexie..
Big Bang Theory - penny/sheldon - this is only an ok category, more of a passing fad with me
How I met your Mother - Robin/Barney - also a passing fad
Doctor Who - intriguing stories with knowledge of backstory.
50 shades of grey - ana/christian - obviously awesome, love their dynamic and the back story so much potential. and as you can see from reading my profile it fits so perfectly into my preference for story types that its kind of shocking _
Gundam Wing - Zechs/duo - i've been reading gun dam wing fan fiction for so long that I honestly don't think i could watch the series again bc it would be so horribly dissapointingly different from how it is in my head. 13 years of GW yaoi!
Harry Potter - this is a brand new interest as i am late to the show on this one. Anything involving severus although other stories have appealed to me.
originals - I like my originals to be extremely well written, with a plot that generally involves a sad backstory, not sure why i have just always identified with these chars. This is obvious if you look at my favorite pairings _. there are VERY few originals I actually like and most of them are on AFF.net BDSM is a strong theme in the originals that i like.
was into Pirates of the Caribbean a few years back, all pairings.. grew out of it tho lol
I'm open to new categories, pretty into Game of Thrones but I haven't found a pairing i'm into yet. Maybe after I watch Season 4 and finish the 5th book but i doubt it. I hate stories where the author makes up a new character and throws them into the plot. It's rarely done well and seems to be a lot of the GOT fan fiction. I will give anything a shot but bear in mind the preferences I have above and please don't suggest twilight. I'm just not interested. Good tv shows, animes, books, movies.. whatever..
