Author has written 25 stories for Teen Titans, Gundam Seed, Digimon, Tales of the Abyss, Fullmetal Alchemist, Joan Of Arcadia, Sandman, Degrassi, Supernatural, and Bokurano.
Been awhile since I updated this; most stories are either on hiatus or pretty dead. I'm trying hard to write more, but don't count on any chapter stories being updated.
Real Name: Ashley. No last name I will say. Middle maybe later. The internet knows me as Ari, though.
Location: Currently in the realm of all things fantasy and angsty, but I live in the U.S.A., in some small suburb of Chicago that nobody cares about.
Age: 20 at last
Hobbies: Reading, writing, thinking up stories, watching TV, playing video games, and listening to music.
Favorite Music: Almost anything Japanese (adding exact bands later...) , Avril Lavigne, Green Day, Evanescence, Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance, SR-71, Boys Like Girls, Fall Out Boy, and Lifehouse, 30 Seconds to Mars, Vienna Teng
Song of the Moment: "The Cave" by Mumford and Sons
Current Obsession (Anime): DragonBall Z. Shock and surprise! Old love rekindled by Kai, my brother and I have been rewatching some of it, going through the Great Saiyaman Saga to the end and now backtracking through the Androids Saga. It's great fun to watch it uncut, because I've had sooo many more feelings than the first time I saw it all those years ago. It's great for a rewatch.
Current Obsession (TV Show): Supernatural. Goddamn, I tried hard not to get into this show, but my dear bff loves it and I've watched through season five now. I quite love the storyline and I honestly can't wait to get into fandom and dive into fanfiction for improving these poor characters' lives. Plus more females. GOTTA give Jo and Ellen and Anna and all the rest their dues.
Current Obsession (Game): Psychonauts. Finally got this game after years of wanting it. Though I believe my disc - or the X-Box, gulp, - has problems from epic freezing, I was able to power through the game in three days and hope to go back and do another playthrough soon. I ADORE it so much. The witty humor, the innovative game-play, the characters - everything (except for the last level AUGH MEAT CIRCUS YOU AND YOUR SUDDEN JUMP IN DIFFICULTY AND NIGHTMARE FUEL-NESS). I'm sad that it never got a sequel, because it was just begging for one. I'd love to see Raz and co. again some day. Until then, there's always fanfiction.
Zodiac Sign: Sheep (But I wanna be a Cat... Seriously...)
Western Sign: Leo
Favorite Animes/Cartoons: Digimon (Tamers, Adventure, Zero Two, Savers (tied with Zero Two), Frontier)), Dragon Ball Z/Dragon Ball/ Dragonball GT (in that order), Shaman King, One Piece (4Kids dub is ... ;shivers;), Yu-Gi-Oh, Naruto, Teen Titans, Pokemon (Old childhood obsessions that come back and never let go... ;sigh;), Wolf's Rain, Inu-Yasha, Gundam SEED/Destiny (Destiny = horrible second half), Fruits Basket (manga is better), .Hack//Sign, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Fullmetal Alchemist, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Romeo x Juliet, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Powerpuff Girls Z (mwhaha, I luff it), Lucky Star, Shugo Chara!, Total Drama Island, Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni (holy crap, this thing is so brain-breaking-ly awesome), Umineko no Naku Koro Ni (the visual novels), Now and Then, Here and There, AIR Tv, Kanon, Angel Beats!
My favorite couples:
Taiora- Digimon Adventure/02 (because I will NEVER accept the 25 years later epilogue regarding Sorato...)
Takari- Digimon Adventure/02 (Garg. It SO happened. 25 year epilogue be damned)
Kenyako- Digimon 02
Ryuki- Digimon Tamers (OTP)
Jurato- Digimon Tamers
Hirojuri- Digimon Tamers (...Dive, I blame you. And I love it.)
Suzie/Mako-Digimon Tamers (What? ... it's cute...)
Terriermon/Lopmon- Digimon Tamers (Yes, I KNOW that Lopmon was originally a guy, but a combination of my own brainstorming for Tamers fanfiction and fanfiction I have read made me fall in love with this pairing.)
Takumi- Digimon Frontier (because even though this is my least favorite season, their scene in Opanimon's library was too cute for words)
Teruo/Chiaki/Koichi- Digimon Froniter (Blame Yang Yin for this one. ;grin;) (OT3)
(Digital Dive is the reason behind all of my Savers/Data Squad pairings, because even though I've yet to finish the series, reading it there effects me sooo much - oh, and they're the Japanese names because 1.) we have no pairing names for them yet ;frown; and 2.) that's what they use on Digital Dive)
Masaru/Yoshino- Digimon Savers/Data Squad
Tohma/Nanami- Digimon Savers/Data Squad
Ikuto/Chika- Dgimon Savers/Data Squad (or Keenan/Kristy, because these names were changed SO much in the dub... I blame Toon Disney, honestly)
Pokeshipping- Pokemon (anyone who knows the fandom will be able to figure it out) (OTP)
Contestshipping- Pokemon (again, fandom)
Doomedshipping- Pokemon (xD Okay, not really... you'll have to go to the list of ships on bulbagarden to figure this one out)
Yoh/Anna-Shaman King (OTP) (Yeah, only one here, but that's how much I like it)
Beastboy/Terra-Teen Titans (OTP)
Cyborg/Raven-Teen Titans (Eh, can't really see them together, though... AU stories are really good with them in it...)
Raven/Rorek-Teen Titans (Okay, I got into this after visiting the Otaku board on . I know they technically weren't ever a couple, but I'll probably invlove Rorek in my series since I can't see Raven and Cyborg together in real life...)
Cyborg/Bumblebee-Teen Titans (They have good chemistry and I need someone for Cy since, as I've said, I can't see Raven and him together in anything but an AU story.)
Ed/Winry-Fullmetal Alchemist (OTP)
Al/Rose-Fullmetal Alchemist (This one happened after the movie...)
Al/Mei- Fullmetal Alchemist (manga manga manga~)

Maria/Sakutaro- Umineko (He is not just a stuffed animal. She gave him a soul. If the ending does not have this, I will be pissed.)
Nabuca/Sara - NTHT (OTP) (There is absolutely no evidence of this. AT ALL. Yet I ship it so hard. Because of roleplay and happy endings after extremely depressing ones.)

Recca/Yanag i- Flame of Recca
Fuko/Domon - Flame of Recca (OTP) (I didn't realize how much I love this pairing until I went and finally finished reading the manga. Amazed that it's hinted at being canon. Such a shame that the fandom seems obsessed with Tokiya/Fuko instead, sob. Give Domon some love, he rocks.)
Kurei/Neon - Flame of Recca
Ushiro/Machi - Bokurano (I'm sad to say I don't ship this as much as I used to. :( Blame RP and Waku/Machi (but not really because that is SO SO SO GLORIOUS), but for a canon ship, this is still my favorite.)
Seki/Tanaka - Bokurano
Kanji/Anko - Bokurano (Okay so it didn't happen in the manga like it did in the anime but I already had the idea in the manga and the anime just showed it was possible)
Daichi/Nakama - Bokurano (IT IS SO CANON. SO SO SO CANON, OMG.)
Maki/Anko - Bokurano (THE NOVEL MADE ME SHIP IT.)
Waku/Machi - Bokurano (OTP) (Blame RP and a lot of shipping discussions. And re-reading the manga. I think I ship this even more than Ushiro/Machi. >> In fact, I know I do.)
Kanji/Komo - Bokurano (RP rocks \o/ )
Moji/Chizu - Bokurano (More RP)
Dung Beetle/Mayako - Bokurano (More RP -- if anyone told Kitoh, HE would ship it too. Seriously.)
Kirie/Maria - Bokurano (More RP and it is ADORABLE)
Ayumu/Hiyono - Spiral (OTP) (The anime had so many sweet little moments and Hiyono's song spreading to Ayumu and made me giggle and then I read the manga and loved it even more and there was the hug and then suddenly I get to the ending and O.O gao. Epilogue stories make my life because...gao.)

Chlark- Smallville (Screw canon!) (OTP)
Lex/Lana- Smallville (Or I used to, before Lex became evil (does this one have a name now? I'm out of the loop))
Daniel/Vala- SG-1 (I think I'm developing an addiction to whump-fics involving these two. This is neither good not bad)(Oh, and I totally love THAT scene in "Undending." Funny how the fandom's come to call it that...)(OTP!)
Sheppard/Weir- Atlantis (OTP)
Claire/Zach- Heroes (...It's cute, gimme a break) (OTP)
Niki/DL- Heroes (A family of heroes 'til the end...)
Nathan/Heidi (for most this would be a given, considering she's his wife, but here's for good measure)- Heroes
Peter/Caitlin- Heroes (I should freaking stop saying which couples I like, because I don't want to add this to the every growing list of "Heroes ships that have been sunken" that I have)
Joan/Adam- JoA (Do The Math = Pretty, Trial and Error = sob) (OTP)
Friedman/Judith- JoA (... Judith...)
Friedman/Stevie- JoA (;glomp Stevie!;)
Friedman/Glynis- JoA (Huh, Friedman getting much action)

Angel/Cordelia - Angel (OTP)
Wesley/Fred - Angel
Gunn/Fred - Angel
Conner/Dawn - BtVS and Angel (What, you've got the Miracle Child and the Key - it has that Buffyverse weird-factor that draws me in. Plus the awkward tension that would come from family reunions? Totally digging it.)
Sean/Emma - Degrassi
Jimmy/Ashley - Degrassi
Craig/Ashley - Degrassi
Craig/Ellie - Degrassi
JT/Liberty - Degrassi
Jay/Manny - Degrassi (Gotta be honest, since it looks like they've killed Palex and Sean/Emma for good, this is my one hope of a pairing I'm head over heels for staying true to the end of the series)
Peter/Darcy - Degrassi
Paige/Alex (Palex) - Degrassi
Ali/Johnny - Degrassi (While it lasted, at least...)
Spinner/Jane - Degrassi
Declan/Holly J - Degrassi (Made me love Declan SO SO MUCH. They are adorable.)
Eli/Clare - Degrassi (I want it more than I've wanted anything on this show, seriously they are made of snark and win and their little power-trio with Adam is BEAUTIFUL)
Finn/Rachel - Glee (OTP)

Heroes: Claire, Zach (WHY didn't they get Thomas Dekker under contract? ;whine;), Hiro, Peter, Charlie (;huggles;), Caitlin (...)
Joan of Arcadia: ... Can I just say the whole cast? If I had to choose a few, I guess I'd say all of the Sub-Defectives (including Judith), Stevie, and Kevin, but I love everyone (Adam's pretty close to being my favorite, though... This is bad for Adam fans)
NCIS: ...I like everyone! griiin Okay, okay, I'll pick and choose. Abby, Ziva, Tony, Gibbs, Jenny, McGee... Y-yeah, bad job at picking and choosing.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel: Buffy, Angel, Willow, Cordelia, Fred, Gunn, Xander, Giles, Tara, Dawn - ...Would it be easier to list the characters I hate? (And as a comment, "You're Welcome" and "Hole In the Wall" are probably the only things I cry at evey single time I watch them. Or read transcripts. Or anything. Let's add "Seeing Red" to that list too. God, Joss, why do you hate your characters?)
Glee: I like all characters except for Terri in some degree, but my favorite-favorites... Rachel (she is so adorable SERIOUSLY), Kurt, Artie, Finn, Tina, and Will. Seriously, everyone gets love from me though, except crazy-wife.

Least Favorite/Hated Pairings:
This section was started because of a certain couple on Heroes that I can't stand. That is not about my own personal preferences, it's about the incest that comes with it. Oh, you all know what I'm talking about. There won't be much here because I honestly don't want to go through every single thing I dislike. I'll only list those that are on the top of my mind.
Heroes- Paire (please, people, in the beginning it was just underaged love, but after Distractions... Just STOP. Changing Peter's relations makes it even worse- destroy a wonderful brother relationship to make your incest work. Yuck.)
Kingdom Hearts- AkuRoku (...the word "friends" mean anything to you?)
Gundam SEED/Destiny- KiraCaga (My incest thoughts were fully expressed in the Heroes one), AsuMey (Just friends, people- read the subtext, and you'll see he doesn't like her like that, and she doesn't him either), YuuCaga (...Watch the frickin' show, people)
Teen Titans- Beastboy/Raven (It's like a sibling relationship. I don't see anything romantic in it. ...Okay, there's more but I've been giving my rant for years. Don't want to anymore.)
Joan of Arcadia- Joan/ANY GOD AVATAR (PLEASE don't tell me you are all serious. PLEASE.)
Stargate- Anyone with Jack other than Sam, anyone with Sam other than Jack
Stargate- This is more of a little side-note, but I'm not a fan of Sam/Daniel either. They don't click romantically with me (friendship-wise, however, is a whole other story). ...Though the theory that they're perfect for each other due to Sam's problem of being a "Black Widow" and Daniel's habit of never staying dead for too long makes me chuckle.
Angel- Cordelia/Conner. Full stop. Seriously, why did Joss think it was a good idea to put them together? I don't care if Conner didn't remember her as the mother figure or Cordy didn't remember them for awhile or that she was possessed for the rest of the season (okay, I do, but that's another rant): It. Was. CREEPY. And squick-y. Very, very squick-y. I get full body shudders when I think of it.
Gee, that's all for now. My current big-gripes. They WILL stay, especially the Heroes one.
Updated Don't Fear the Reaper, August, 2010
What Is Christmas Spirit, Anyway? (This one WILL be updated! The final chapters are being written after MUCH delay. I actually had them typed out but my computer crashed and...well, they got deleted. I sadly haven't had any inspiration to write since, which was obviously quite awhile ago. I hope I can get back to it one day.)
HalfBreed: (Obviously on hiatus... When I update it, I promise I'll have several other chapters written as well to lighten the wait.)
T.E.R.R.A: (My first one-shot and completed story; it is in the same universe as Stone Memories, but set in the future)
Memories: (Will there be more in this era? Who knows. Not any time soon, but you can hope...)
Of Scissors and Replicas: (First Tales of the Abyss story. Very satisfying. A one-shot, but I'm proud of it.)
Alternative Hymns: (Oh, I had NO idea what I was getting myself into...)
When the Battles Stops: (Gosh, that was an insane thing. I loved writing it, but insane.)
Observations of a Teenage Angel Girl: (My first Joan of Arcadia story. It's dead, but a fun little jaunt.)
Reversing the Stitches: (This came to me and refused to leave me alone. It now stands as my first completed chapter story, and, as of September 4, 2007, my longest one (at least, longest online).)
What Could Have Been: (Honestly I have other drabbles for it. I need to upload them eventually.)
Don't Fear the Reaper: (It's coming and living! I'll be updating very soon.)

"We are the Furlings."
-Furlings, Stargate SG-1, 200 (That episode is so hilariously wonderful...)

Clare: ;"wakes up," gasps; "Romeo, you drank the poisonous high-fructose cola beverage, no!" ;lolwhat;
;and there's kissing;
-Degrassi, s10e18, "Still Fighting It Part 1"
;after teh video project filming;
Clare: ;mind=blown, dazed; "Should we do another take?"
Eli: "Uhhhh." ;looks at Adam, who shakes his head subtly, little smile; "I think we got it." :)
-Degrassi s10e18, "Still Fighting It Part 1"
(Maybe I should just say I love every conversation they have.)
Eli: ;about Clare; "When I'm around her...all I can think about is getting her to kiss me."
-Degrassi s10e19, "Still Fighting It Part 2"
Eli: "Now, let's talk about something more important, like how you're gonna thank me for throwing Simpson off your scent."
Clare: ;half-smirk; "What'd you have in mind?"
Eli: ;pondering/thoughtful, idk these facial expressions XD; "Well, I don't know--" ;KISSES. LIKE, FULL-ON MAKE-OUT. TONGUE AND EVERYTHING; ;...brief realization; "I have a French exam."
Clare: ;dazed, it has been dubbed an Eligasm; "I think you just passed it."

Funny conversations/moments when I KNOW I am a nerd:
:While playing Tales of Symphonia:
Me: Now, off to save Genis's girlfriend!
Ryan (my brother): Um, what did you say?
Me: Off to save Genis's girlfriend?
Ryan: Oh, good.
Me: Why, what'd you think I said?
Ryan: Well, Genis sounds a lot like another word...
Ryan: Oh, come on! I thought you said 'Off to save Penis's girlfriend!'
:Again, while playing Tales of Symphonia:
Ryan: You know what? I've been thinking about something for awhile.
Ryan: You know what another couple name Genis and Presea could be called? You know, with Presea's name first?
Me: ;Thinks;;Puts the 'P' in Presea in place of the 'G' in Genis; Oh my- YOU SICKO PERV! ;hits him;
Ryan: ... Penis...
Me: ;Falls out of the chair laughing from the randomness of it all; ;Almost dies in game...;
(He does this a lot now...)
:More Adventures in ToS:
(This involves dialogue from the game too. I won't get Genis's line right, I know, but it's something like that...)
Lloyd: Collette, I can't keep it a secret any longer!
Ryan: ;In deep voice; I'm carrying your baby.
Me and Ryan: ;Break down laughing; ;Laugh over the next line because I hit 'A' by accident and the dialogue continued...;
Me: ;Catches breath; Oh God, ;huff; You are sick! Lloyd's a guy!
Ryan: ;Catches breath and smirk; Exactly!
Genis: How did this happen?
Me and Ryan: Remember last line Ryan said; ;ROTFLOFAO, or Rolling on the Floor Laughing Our Fing Aes off;
:At school, trying to get my friend to watch anime:
Me: Come, on Sara, you gotta watch some!
Sara: Well, my mom might not let me...
Me: Why not!
Sara: They might be too violent.
Me: ;groans; Well, let's see what I find. ;calls to other friend; Hey, Mike, what can we get Sara to watch?
Me: Well, what won't your mom let you watch?
Sara: Well, some of it is me, too. I don't want to see any flying or exploding body parts.
Me and Mike: No FMA or Naruto.
Sara: And that thing you told me about with the little girl in FMA was sad too...
Me: And Wolf's Rain is too violent... :sighs:excited: I guess Gundam SEED it is then!
Sara: Is it violent?
Me: Ummmm... Not as much as the other ones...
Sara and Mike: -_-
:Again at school:
Sara: Hey, guess what?
Sara: My mom said I could watch Gundam SEED.
Me:Perks up instantly: Really!
Me: What about the violence?
Sara: She said it was fine.
Me: And the swears?
Sara: As long as it's not too bad.
Me: Yes! ;Starts jumping up and down;
Robin (another friend): ;Walks up to talk to me; ;Sees me jumping like a Ferret; Um... Hi?
Robin: ... ;Has no clue what I'm talking about;
:At school one morning:
(Hai- yes in Japanese)(This is also on my friend's (yamihawkeye) profile, but with reversed roles)
Colleen (friend): "... Uh- hi?"
Me and Mike: "Hai, Hi!"
:Talking to my online friend after he said he'd "die for me":
Me: ... I should take that as a compliment, right?
Him: Depends on how you look at it. If that means letting you live so you can get mugged out of house and home then that's bad. If that means taking a bullet for you so you can grow up, be successful and have a chance to contribute to society, then that's a good thing.
Me: My happy mood died
Me: It died in a bloody and gruesome way...
:Me and a friend, talking about Beastboy being shirtless in an RP:
Al: B.B's got a toned chest, but again his muscels are long and ropey, not like cyborg
Me: Still, it would make a girl go crazy...
Al: well yeah, green nipples, teh sex
Me: Al... ;Blush;
Me: Great, now I'll never be able to eat vegetables without blushing...
Al: (Died laughing)
:Me and the same friend, now talking about how my brother gave me a little extra time on line and he needs to post fast:
Al: he's a nice man
Me: yes, he is. But post fast
Al : like the wind
A few minutes later…
Me: ... wind is sure slow tonight, huh, Al?
Al: bite me
Me: Naw, you don't taste good
Al: How would you know? have you been licking me again?
Me: ... say it again, I dare you... twitch (you've seen me on a bad day...)
:At an amusement part talking to a man at the Airbrush place:
Me: Um, excuse me? Do you take requests?
Man: Yes. What kind of request?
Me: Well... ;pulls out a Kyo plushie from my bag; This! Don't ask what it is. ;nervous;
Man: It's a cat.
Man: It's a pissed off cat.
Me: He's orange!
Man: Okay. An orange pissed off cat!
:My brother, playing a WWII Real Time Strategy game:
It is 1942, and I am off to fight the Japanese so that one day, they may grow into a culture that worships anime, sushi, and women with overly large breasts!
(He said that with a straight face. That's what made me laugh so hard)
:Another conversation with my brother, when he was ignoring me:
Me: Ryan! Listen!
Ryan: ;Playing his Gameboy;
Me: He doesn't like me! ;pouts;
Ryan: Not quite right... ;smirking;
Me: ;pause; HE HATES ME!
Ryan: There ya go!
Ryan: ;Laughs and shakes head, muttering about me being gulible;
:Me and Sara sitting at a table at lunch, talking about Mwu La Fllaga looking at a magazine with a girl in a bikini on the front:
Sara: I mean, why would he be looking at it!
Me: ;dryly; He's a man.
Sara: I never realized it before!
Me: ;eyes wide; THAT HE'S A MAN!
Sara: No! Not that!
Mike: ;sitting near us and laughing her head off;
:A conversation between Sara and her little brother. Explanation: In my little group, I'm called Cagalli, and Sara is Lacus. Her little borther didn't know this:
Sara's Bro: I want to be someone from Gundam SEED!
Sara: Okay. Who?
SB: Hmmm... I want to be Athrun!
Sara: Then you'd be Ashley's boyfriend!
SB: Fine, then I want to be Kira!
Sara: THEN YOU'D BE MY BOYFRIEND!
SB: ... Then can I be Haro?
Sara: YAY! You get to be my minion!
Sara: ;happy smile;
:At lunch, when there is no room for us at a table and we're sitting right behind it:
Mike: So, Sara, how are people?
Me: Because we wouldn't know.
Sara: You two have each other.
Me and Mike: ;Stare at each other for a second; BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! ;double-over laughing;
Sara: ;Trying to yell over our laughter; I didn't mean it like that!
:While watching an episode of Heroes, "The Hard Part":
Ryan: Wait, wait... The reason Sylar kills people is because he never hugged as a child!
-A few weeks later, during a certain "dream character's" explanation of Peter and Nathan "How to Stop an Exploding Man"-
Myself: "If all Sylar needs is a hug to stop the killing, I'm never watching this show again."
:While playing Tales of the Abyss the first time around, at Mt. Roneal the second time:
Me: I wonder if there's anything over here. Last time we were a bit too...rushed to explore.
Ryan: ;shrug; Go ahead.
;runs to the right side of the screen to see a BLACK WALL that was not supposed to be there;
Me: Was that...there before?
Me: I-I think I've found it.
Me: The Fourth Wall. I have found the Fourth Wall...and it is black.
Me: I wonder what would happen if I could break it.
Ryan: Stop right there. You've exceeded your pun quota for the day.
:While replaying Tales of the Abyss, same area as above, same time frame:
Me: ... I wonder...
;runs over to the right side of the screen, sees the BLACK WALL again;
Me: THE FOURTH WALL! AHHHHH!
;runs out of area;
Me: ... I need to tell Ryan about this...
:While replaying Tales of the Abyss, in the Cheagle Woods before fighting Arietta:
;runs down the path to the left side of the screen, sees a BLACK WALL;
Me: ... Holy crap, it's stalking me. The Fourth Wall is stalking me.
:While replaying Tales of the Abyss, at the Tower of Rem event:
Luke: I'm alive? Why?
Tear: Thank goodness! I thought you were going to disappear...
Me: ... Hug him. Hug him now. He almost died and things are going to get very depressing later, so HUG HIM NAOOGH!
;Jewel of Lorelei appears, drawing everyone's attention;
Me: GOD DAMMIT! WHY CAN'T I CHANGE THINGS WITH MY MIND!
:While brain-storming for ideas on the imminent "What did you do over Spring Break?" question:
Me: I made an AMV, read Stargate fanfiction, talked to my computer, and ... went to Macomb... I...I think it's official. I have...no life.
:While re-watching the Stargate SG-1 episode "Line in the Sand" with my brother:
Me: Man, everyone gets whumped in this episode! We've got Teal'c-whump, Vala-whump, MAJOR Sam-whump, and even a little Cam-whump. The only person who isn't getting whumped - in a strange turn of events - is Daniel! ...But then again he's probably getting seduced by the evil super-powerful Whore who is the daughter of the woman he may kinda-sorta love right now, so he's not in a very fun position either...
:While re-watching the Stargate SG-1 episode "The Shroud" with my brother, right when Adria is seducing Daniel:
Ryan: You know, I think she has a bit of an Electra complex.
Me: From this point on she shall be know as The Whore. Don't question me. She just shall.
MY PET PEEVES IN WRITING (IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER):
1. Author's notes in the middle of a story. I used to do this, you used to do this, we ALL used to do this. If you still do this? Shame shame.
2. The "word" anyways. Please, people. I will give you a reality check: THIS IS NOT A REAL WORD. It's something people used in casual speak because their words slurred together and then translated into writing form. I see this "word" mucking up even the best of fiction.
3. No punctuation. ...I shouldn't even have to explain this one.
4. Misspelling a character's name. I can understand the occasional slip up here and there - leave off a letter at the end of a word or writing "ever" instead of "even" or something like that (we all probably write at god-awful hours, anyway). And I can also understand characters with various transliterated names or last names due to fandubbing, i.e Elthman vs. Elsman, etc. What I can't stand for, however, is when the character has an easy-to-spell name or the name is shown in show - or in book, that's even worse - or whatever and you still proceed to call Geoff Jeff or Tohru Toru or something like this. This goes for the names of places too. FYI, ThunderClan has the 'Clan' part capitalized, so do all the other Clans. Just because a typo in one book had Windclan doesn't mean its lower case. Be familiar with your fandom, people.
5. Please please please please don't ignore your character's thoughts! I'm not looking for epic block paragraphs, but unless your intent is just dialogue - some very witty stories have been written that way, but not too many - make sure to balance outer and inner conversation.
6. Okay, here's one I am TOTALLY guilty of. Unless it's a big-big-big thing if they character is wearing something different or...heck, if it's a plot point, don't introduce a character and automatically describe what he or she is wearing to a T. Or the eye, hair, exact description. Sprinkle it around. If the character whose POV you're writing from wouldn't notice everything about someone right away, don't have it.
7. Sp-spellcheck? Please?
And more to come when I read more fanfiction and pick out more errors! Probably from my own, too. No one is perfect. We just strive to be~
