If you have a choice between writing a popular cliché and writing an unpopular original idea, go for the original idea. Be daring. Take risks.

Well I'm Animegirl257, I’m currently working on a few stories right now. My current focus is my newest story, Difference, an idea that's been in my head for a very long time that I'm very excited to do, despite the lack of feedback it is currently getting. I'm also working on another story known as Shooting Stars that most of you know of, though at the moment it is on Hiatus.
I'm was also co-writing story known as Tribal End with Omegaxis1 until recently.
I'll try and leave updates on my profile if anything comes up.
If you want to talk to me feel free to leave a PM. I'm not against it but please don't shamelessly advertise your own stories ok? I'm fine with trading ideas and discussing stories but don't just say 'please read my stories!' or something. I do love to talk and I'm willing to beta or colab on a idea you have, if I like it myself of course.
Something you should know about anything I write:
There will be much violence. Unless it's some one-shot or something, I will not be writing anything without violence like fighting or injuries. I just think that's more interesting to read and write. So not many soft multi-chapter stories, and I try and be creative in my fights as well. And thus there will be blood. People bleed when they get cut and get hurt though I'm not ripping people limb from limb. And at some points I may do heavy descriptions of death if it's meant to make an impact.
I do not write things that are not, in some way shape or form, dark. It varies, but no matter what, I just like writing dark stuff. I will obviously incorporate other things to balance it out, but I am more than happy to fuck with character's minds. I get some sick, sadistic pleasure out of it, and apparently you do to if you like reading my stories. Though I don't like over the top angst, I feel like adding some in spices things up a bit. So unless it is a stand along one-shot, the story will eventually get dark, whether it's by killing people, fighting, mentally attacking characters or something else, it will happen. I am messed up like that but it's fun to write.
So to celebrate the end of exams, I've gone ahead and made a Deviantart by the same name (). No art just yet but I will be posting the first chapter or so of each story I'm currently working on along with any one-shots. Right now you're missing nothing, though I will at least leave a little alert if I post something. Feel free to request characters, scenes, or what have you.
I'm taking Shooting Stars off hold and I'll be working on both that and Difference at the same time, though I cannot say when I'll update again.
Shooting Stars is now on hold until further notice in favor of a new story, Difference.
School starts up again in a few days so there may be a delay in updates, all depending on how things go. Also considering starting a few other stories on the side for when I don't feel like working on Shooting Stars.
So my computer blue screened on me and now I've lost half my files. one of which being my Shooting Stars file. Of course I have a backup saved here, but that doesn't include the next few chapters I have that I was working on. I've only just gotten everything mostly sorted out but we keep hearing adds in the background and the darn keeps freezing. So it'll be a bit before an update.
Testing is coming up soon, so updates will be less often. I will still update, but I can no longer say when. The days that I update will be random for several weeks. I'll post something here when I'm back to normal updates again.
Late post is late, but oh well. Updates are now steadily at once a week, either Friday or Saturday, though I try to aim for Friday. Good god this will be a long fic, already almost at 100,000 words and I've hardly started! Well, I hope that you'll all remember to review with each chapter and favorite and follow as well Just because I'm not holding next chapter hostage for X number of reviews doesn't mean it isn't a huge motivation boost to see a new review, even if you don't have much to say, feel free to suggest ideas, as this story is flexible enough to fit in any good ideas.
Difference: Digimon; A mostly original universe with influences from all series. Centered around a Good!Lucemon with different ideals than his predecessor and his struggle to grasp just what he is as he helps those that should be his enemy fight those who should be his allies.
Summery: Light and Darkness have always been at a tentative balance in the Digital World. But a murder fused the Dark Ocean and Dark Area into a paradise for evil and threw the Light into a war for the Human World. A Lucemon that walks between the two wielding the Digital Hazard is determined to follow his own path. And chance offers something amazing, and if you only reach out a bit...you can change everything and find the hidden key. Something that changes your values and ideas. Because, in the end, only you yourself can decide whether to destroy the wretched world that hurt you or become it's possible salvation.
Fate is forever a doubled-edged sword; offering the most heavenly things before making you pay for tasting the forbidden fruit and experiencing happiness you never knew existed.
This will be an entirely OC-centered story, but none of the Digimon will be 'Original' design wise. Though their personalities may be far different than their cannon counterparts their appearances will remain the same. It borrows ideas and elements from most, if not all the anime series with many different spins on them. It also is more character and plot centered than action-centered, unlike my other story. There will be plenty of action, just not in the same sheer amount for the most part.
I'm also respecting your intelligence as a human being while writing this, so if you see something that doesn't seem right or seems to have a double meaning then it's likely it's important. And if you're looking for a simple straight forward story with black and white morals and sides, I don't recommend this. It's ot going to be a groundbreaking novel filled with symbolism that's going to change your life, but it's not an 'us vs. them' story. This also isn't a cookie-cutter Digimon story where I throw a group of kids into the world and they evolve level by level. Here they arrive randomly and no one will grow at the same rate.
Additional warning to those below: this is a revised version of a VERY old idea with most of the terrible clichés take out, though a few are still in it to keep the story in line.
Shooting Stars: Ryuusei no Rockman; AU, Anime Based with game influences. If you've seen the anime you'll know the general idea behind this story; Subaru and eventually Misora have to team up to stop the FM Life forms from destroying the earth. But sadly, no one told them that an old fugitive from the war with Planet AM decided to drop by, or that a FM life form on the run from a group of insane FM scientists was already hiding here. And then everything goes to hell.
Summery: One day Subaru (Geo) happened to run into an FM life form fugitive known as War-Rock (Omega-Xis), who was running from other FMs who all wanted the Andromeda key he had so they could blow up the world. But no one expected an infamous war fugitive to come to Earth for a form of revenge against the FM King Cepheus or a runaway experimental FM to already be hiding on Earth. AU, Reboot
Starts off almost the same, but will become very AU-ish as it goes on. The effects will steadily snowball and grow in each book.
Return to Alpha: A Rockman.EXE story: Could be considered an AU: Anime based with heavy game influences. Takes place directly after episode 51 of the first set of episodes, and branches off into a completely different story based around the events of BN3 but with several twists.
Summery: Shortly after the Gospel incident the chains on a great beast from the past threaten to be broken. When the Gigafreeze is sought, the infamous Underking needs to be found to take it back…which is easier said than done. Now new NetSaviors, Netto and Rockman, must now prevent the awakening of the beast by locating Underking, or the entire Net will be consumed.
This story will be 'lighter' than my other two projects, not set in a realistic(ish) world. It'll still probably end up more serious than the anime and games, but nothing like the others. This story is also not a re-write of Axess, so no, there is no cross-fusion battle of the day. There will be, however, Dimensional Areas at some point. Several of the characters will also be changed to better fit their game counterparts, have certain things edited, exempt, or expanded on, or be given a complete overhaul in at least one character's case.
An Unreliable Narrator: The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya One-shot. Slight AU featuring Kyon also as a god but having hidden that from the rest of the S.O.S Brigade.
Summery: One Shot, considering expanding on but I'm not sure yet. When you're told a story through the eyes of only one character, it is inevitable that certain things will be…embellished. Some things may change, some things may be exaggerated, and some things may be left out completely. Like who Kyon really is, for example.
This is an idea I plan to do a long time from now, but has surprisingly already been asked for. In short; this story would be a cross-over of my edited Starforce universe and the Battle Network series. I have no idea if this would be based off the show or the games, nor any idea of plot yet. Do not expect to see this anytime soon; it would take place at least after I finish the 2nd 'book'.
A completely different Ib story inspired off the new endings recently released for the game. The story itself would take place in the 'Together Forever' ending, with the assumption that the 'Forgotten Portrait' ending also takes place. Mary escaped the gallery and took Gary's place, but she still does not belong in the real world. You can never escape who you really are, nor what you've done.
My rules for writing (General guide only, you need more than this; your own rules really):
1: Spellcheck: It’s a very nice thing. Don’t try and use that as a excuse for your problems and mistakes, it DOESN'T CATCH EVERYTHING. Ok? Go over your work and make sure it’s the right word and/or grammar. If you miss something here or there (like I do) that's fine, but I don't think anyone wants to read 'hes went two skool 2day' or something like that.
2: Description: Don’t just say “She was standing in the wind and had blond hair and was wearing a blue dress” say “She stood there silently as the wind played with her messy blond hair and made her silken blue dress flutter.” Say it in a creative way, and not just stating the facts, that’s boring to read. Creativity is a must in writing, and try using different words every now and then.
3: OC: If your using an Original Character, please, please, PLEASE make them realistic and not “I’m so perfect how could anyone hate me?” or “My life sucks, I want to die, everyone hates me” that’s just not real. And not every existing character will love and/or hate your character. Some people just hate each other or don't care. No self-inserts unless you're self-insert fits and/or isn't a Mary-Sue (Gary-Stu for any guys out there) I may not be the best at it, but that doesn't mean you should suck at it to. And no OC's for the sole purpose of pairing up characters to. Just...no.
4: Parings: ok, people don’t just instantly fall in love. So don’t just have love happen without there being a reason. Make it work. And please don’t break up officially established parings without a valid reason like your story being an AU or there’s really a true reason. And not every relationship has to be love or absolute hate. People can just be friends to you know.
5: Fighting: Don’t be afraid to hurt your characters. Or kill them off. After all, if your story involves fighting, people are going to get hurt. And people are going to die. And though humans do bleed, the human body only has so much blood in it, so no pairing the walls unless you kill off like 20 random filler characters. And a person can only take so much before they either pass out or go into shock or just plain die. Injuries don’t just magically heal on their own, so you either need to remember how your characters are injured, or have someone have healing powers.
6: Remember your characters! Don’t just have one or two characters drop off the face of the planet for ten chapters (unless you're alternating perspectives every few chapters or something) and they suddenly appear for no reason. Either give an explanation or remember to at least mention them. It's hard to do when you have a huge cast (I know) but mention them in passing if you must, and if you have to exclude them (fighting or plot chapters they aren't relevant to yet) get back to them as soon as the plot allows.
7: A problem that I've recently noticed and just bothers me. No massive blocks of text. It's messy and not fun to read. At the very least almost every line of dialog should have its own line, and even long speeches should be broken up in some way. It's just hard to read endless blocks of texts where it is easy to skip lines or miss things.
8: Another personal thing, though I believe that others also think this. Don't put 'I know this story isn't any good', 'I'm not a very good writer', or 'This is my first story' in your description or even that you suck at writing descriptions. It lowers our opinion of your story before we've even read it and makes a good number of people less likely to read the story.
9: Personal thing right here; There is a difference between brunette and brunet, and if you see me using one for the other, I'm not using it wrong. It's the same difference as blond and blonde; one is masculine/neutral and the other is feminine. So, if you want to get technical, referring to a boy as brunette is wrong, but that's getting really picky. Only mentioning this because someone's tried to tell me otherwise, when I myself was so confused I looked it up and confirmed it, and I know they won't be the last.
