Author has written 4 stories for Final Fantasy VII, and Avengers.
I adore many fandoms that you will most likely find me in reading over in the crossover section than in the main fandom categories. If you do find me there - well - I'll probably reading fanfics that are at minimal 5k words (with an exception for One-shots/Drabbles). I like well thought out stories and authors who put a lot of thought and reason in making a fic.
I don't have anything against Slash fics. I'm neutral in reading them. If it has a good plot I may review, if it doesn't you won't hear anything from me while I easily press the 'Back' button on my web browser. But if you shove things about being going against gays or stop homophobia in front of my face... I will ignore it. I came here to read and write fics, not join in any anti/support campaigns which seem to be stuck on many authors/readers' profiles. You won't also find any Yaoi/Yuri fics made by me, I don't have a thing for writing about it even if I have friends who adore it, and bring me along numerous times to watch Yaoi/Yuri anime in hopes I get on their band wagon.
My Style for writing plots: I think I’ve adopted a more thriller based or screenwriting sort of feel rather than the narrative-like for beginnings. There may be a time I will throw readers into a situation where they will have to figure out things. Also I’m sucker for details, so don’t expect me to write short chapters unless it’s some form of drabble or prompt format. My current record on this account is 19,000 words (about 42 pages on Word) for a chapter in ‘Taking the Backseat’.
My Strengths for fics: I’m comfortable and I know how to balance OCs very well in fanfiction you won’t find them being Mary Sues/Gary Stus; Character depth and interaction is something I love doing. I do my research before I write, so I like intertwining plot points and covering plot holes, and I usually will stalk a fandom first and try to create something someone hasn’t done before.
Weaknesses for fics: I struggle with grammar at times. It happens when you have English for a 3rd language. If a story doesn’t have beta, you’ll have tolerate it as it is. Although I usually come back to previous chapters to fix them when I can or let someone beta read it if possible.
News of my fics: I'm taking a hiatus for my first fic (STTIASMML) and focusing on my MCU The Avengers x FFVII series. I've lost the vibe for writing my first fic for now. And with more time constraints in RL I just want to focus one project first which still has my attention and I'm more eager to finish it.
With ‘A Part of Remains’ complete, I plan to finish of the next chapter (Chapter 10) for ‘Taking the Backseat’. Sorry for the long wait for those who are eager for the next chapter; there were just a few crucial plot points I needed to sort out concerning Phil Coulson with the most recent developments on the Agents of SHIELD TV series (Ep. 11 on Jan 7th, 2014). As much as I can derail something, I wanted to make sure I’m still sticking to canon plot elements of the MCU.
S.H.I.E.L.D. Rhapsodos: RemainsA Part That Remains: Chapter 5 is complete! Story complete!
S.H.I.E.L.D. Rhapsodos: Taking the Backseat: Chapter 11 in Progress at 65% (due to plot elements)
S.H.I.E.L.D. Rhapsodos Intorductions: Agent Jasper Sitwell Chapter 2 in the works.
Simply the Thing I am, Shall Make Me Live: Chapter 14 in Progress at 78%. (Hiatus for now)
Fanfiction Updates: Naturally on the weekends, although I may post it on any other day of the week. RL this year is is probably going to be the time I have my hands full and free time is only on weekends. I'm not promising quick updates (not sure about a monthly update either), but I will deliver the plot with quality as priority.
About my fics:
Simply the Thing I am, Shall Make Me Live (FFVII self insert):
SHIELD Agent Rhapsodos: Taking the Backseat (FFVII x the Avengers [Movie] crossover):
A challenge I set myself on exploring the Marvel Cinematic Universe through the eyes of a tired and seeking redemption Genesis Rhapsodos. He's tired of the hero business and decides to take the backseat. Features Genesis as a Turk, SOLDIER, Superhero sitter and unwilling superhero in one - as well as Agent Phillip Coulson as his mentor. Focuses on a support character POV and character interaction with action that follows along with it. Events take place before, during, and after the Avengers movie.
SHIELD Agent Rhapsodos: A Part that Remains (COMPLETE): A prequel to 'Taking the Backseat' in a form of prompts/theme of small drabbles that progress as a story plot. Where it all started for Genesis before SHIELD came into his life, and where his moral compass is formed. Also a starting point to get more character depth for a MCU canon character for a future fic. 5 of 5 Chapters.
SHIELD Agent Rhapsodos Introductions (series): Set before 'Taking the Backseat' but interlinked with 'A Part that Remains'. Short stories on how Genesis first meets with Agent Phil Coulson, Director of SHIELD Nick Fury, Clint Barton, Natasha Romanoff, Agent Maria Hill, and Agent Jasper Sitwell.
First Introduction, Agent Jasper Sitwell: Another challenge fic for me. I like to get to know more about underrated characters. Since Sitwell has made an appearance in Thor, the Avengers, the Consultant, and Item 47, he was my first choice to have a crack of his character. While there wasn't much info on him during the films/short films, I took the privilege to mix his personality a bit with his comic persona. Plus I dragged his comic partner James 'Jimmy' Woo in this too for more fun.
Other fic plans for the future:
Second Introduction, Agent Phillip J. Coulson: Where for the first time Genesis meets his SHIELD mentor and life as a SHIELD agent at this point wasn't serving Phil well.
P R O X Y Pendulum: Doesn't have a main plot. Compilation of single one-shots when characters A meets B from FFVIIxAvengers. Does not tie-in with the SHIELD Agent Rhapsodos series.
Other talents: I'm a digital graphics artist. I don't draw well, but I'm pretty decent with computer graphics as a whole. My favorite programs are Corel Draw, Adobe Photoshop (pretty much the Suite), and GIMP. I've used those programs to make my covers for my fanfics and C2 cover. The size on the site doesn't do it justice, so for a larger view, here they are:
Other Worlders of Gaia Archives C2
Because Self Insertion/OCs from Earth Fics, don't have to suck. This C2 is a compilation of the better to high quality/plot engaging SI or OC fics of Earthlings thrown into the world of FF7. Timelines vary BC/CC/Main/AC/DoC. Dedicated to BlackWindKaze, who laid out the path for SI fics.
About the OWoGA C2:
I know I'm new to FFn, but I did a lot of research around for who was behind starting it – the person who made FFVII Self Insertion fics readable (great believable plot, no ultimate perfect character (Sue/Stu), and great writing).
My search lead me to the author BlackWindKaze (with the help of Frankto as his Beta) who was the first to write a Self-Insert that was worth the read called 'FF7 Experience' (Published in 2005-2006, with 16 Chapters [incomplete] at 159.748 words). It's been deleted on this site, but if you wish to read it, you can go to vffa*ficfan*org (replace stars with full stops) and download it.
This C2 is about getting the best of what authors can do for writing Self-Insertion fics and perhaps OC fics of an Earthling/a few Earthlings who are thrown into the world of Gaia. You can still make GREAT SI fics out there without getting put off by people just because you wrote a 'typical self-insert'. So don't make it typical, make it extraordinary! Also, it's a place to inspire others to write their own and or promote ideas for readers and authors alike.
() Accepting all ratings K-M, genres, Yaoi/Yuri/slash. Just make sure you give a warning to readers at the beginning of the fanfic.
() If you happen to write a fanfic or know a fanfic that's a Self-Insert or OC, feel free to try and request to put the fic in this Community. However, there is a point I will reject it, if there are certain things that are not met:
(-) No Punctuation At All (Ignores all grammar/Does not use a spellchecker)
Just because it's fanfiction, it doesn't mean you ignore it. It's not English class, but you can put effort into going back to edit for mistakes. No one is perfect. I have English as a second language, but it does not mean I do not present my best effort in writing a fanfic. Heck, I've seen people who have it as 3rd, 4th or even 5th language and they try their best to write or at least get a beta. I'm not a grammar nazi (I have my own problems with it), there may be some fics I will tolerate for making a engaging plot/a strong character base/re-editing their work as their story develops.
(-) Rushed Fanfics
Take it easy on the plot and characters. They need time to develop, so do you as a self-insert character or your OC. Beware that rushed fanfics have potential for out of control plot devices, writer's block, Mary Sues/Gary Stus, and OOC for canon characters. If it's a One-shot, then I'll see to it first. If say for example, I rejected you at first and you edited/revised the story. You can try again (as many times as you like) to request it into the C2, as long as there are improvements.
(*) If you are inspired by another author, please credit that author for his/her ideas (mention in your author notes). You never know that the author might even mention you/credit you for promoting their fic. =)
(*) Anyone interested in wanting to become staff, you can PM me. The only thing I ask is to be open minded (read past minor grammar mistakes for good plots), but picky (know whether a fic is too rushed or has hardly punctuation at all).
