HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, I laugh 'cause it tickles like crazy.
Okay ha, bad joke.
Here's a little about me.
First off, people mature. I am a person, and I've learned a lot from when I've started off at fanfiction. I started re-writing my profile 12/8/14, after having the same one since I began, reading over it, and wincing.
Should I put my opinions of stuff on my profile? I'm not entirely sure. My tumblr is here, my AO3 is here, my FictionPress is here, my DeviantArt here. I haven't pt links up yet because I am despairingly lazy and kind of don't want you to see any of it. If you really want to, search ItTicklesLike Crazy on any of those particular sites as a creator, and I should come up. Wattpad too, but I haven't put anything there.
My stories aren't that great, but they're better than they used to be, so maybe in a couple years they will be that great. If "that great" is even an obtainable standard. My advice to anybody still reading this is, one, don't be afraid to admit you like fanfiction, but don't be obnoxious about it either. You're probably here for the DP, so I don't think you can be very obnoxious about it without somebody snide asking you what Danny Phantom is.
Two, do not be afraid to write. I know you think you're bad now, and to be honest, if writing is new to you, you probably are. BUt when I started writing, I was terrible, and now, well at least now I feel safe to say I can write confidently.
Three, you probably hear a lot about M/Gary S(t)ues. Basically, they're overly perfect characters, normally girls, who are, well, perfect. Don't be afraid to have one. Lift them up on a pedestal. Cherish them. Love them. Send them on adventures with your favorite characters, and have them rescue said fav characters from danger. But, keep in mind, overly perfect characters in a story are normally obnoxious to other people. Don't be afraid to write stories with your perfect character, but I would advise against posting them, because normally overly perfect characters kind of flush the quality of the story down because so much of the great writing is focused on them and no the key characters. NOt to mention, some other people might think your story is good enough to try and ram their perfect character in along with yours int heir imagination, and lets be frank, that much perfect and pure imagination can not be held in one fanfic, no matter how many words. Love your OC's, all of them, even the not completely perfect ones. But, and here's frank advice, avoid putting overly perfect characters in stories.
Four, don't be afraid to message your favorite authors. I don't think it's that much of a secret that I absolutely CHERISH sapphireswimming. SHe is really great, writes so many awesome Danny Phantom stories, SuperPhantom especially, and for the longest time I could not work up the courage to even review on her awesome stories, even though she totally deserved it, but then I did, and she PM'ed me, and as you can imagine, I totally freaked out, but managed not to scare her away, because she's pretty awesome like that. And slowly, with her responding to my reviews, (and her suddenly reviewing to this SuperPhantom story I posted??) we maybe kinda became almost friends, and I think we're internet friends now (though I still kind of secretly, like, really hero-worship her SuperPhantom stories) but basically, the moral of this story is that everybody on this website is a person, and I doubt very many people on this website are going to be very mean to you. Also, if you need any more advice or some help or even story ideas, don NOT be afraid to PM me. The button is right at the top of my profile, over my penname, and I don't always respond right away, but don't be afraid to contact me, or any authors you feel like you want to talk to.
Also, as a last though fifth note, don't be a flamer. Flames are pointless insults on a person's story that don't do the author or the story any good. If the story is really that bad that you can't say anything about it without dissing it, don't review unless you're willing to help the person become a better author with your personal help. If there is something you can compliment, be sure to do so, along with whatever constructive criticism you can. If it is a more-than-one-chapter story, try to section your constructive criticism, like rationing. People tend to listen to constructive criticism a lot more when it's not all dumped on them at once, and it helps to through some HONEST compliments in there too.
And hey, I'm not the all-seeing eye. I don't know everything there is to know about this site. I'm probably just a little more or a little less lost than you are, random ff.net reader. I'm just a teenage girl with an overly-active emotional center and a small addiction for the ghost show. Read on, brave soul.

Danny Phantom Assumptions (headcannons)
Some of these do not apply in my stories, but are here to help aspiring writer like myself who are confused. When I first started out I didn't know what to think. If you're confused and want to build off of my assumptions you are more than welcome. Also, if you want any help in deciphering the lingo of FanFiction.net, don't hesitate to ask. I still don't know all of it, and I would pay to have a good dictionary of this site!!!
A short explanation is that this is something I do every year. I write stories, the same amount of stories as the age I'm turning, and the deadline is my birthday (October 22nd). That is the entire rule set. The stories can be however long, however short, however bad or good, or about anything. BUt writing that much is a lot or pressure, surprise surprise. It also normally gives me a lot of experience, which is great. My fifteen was my first time posting online, though not my first time doing it. The link is below.
ALRIGHTY THEN! LET"S GET RIGHT DOWN TO BUSINESS BEING A TWIT AND MAKING PEOPLE ANGRY, AS USUAL!
I feel the need to correct people who use schizophrenia in the place of Dissociative Personality Disorder (D.I.D.). Schizophrenia is seeing, hearing, or sometimes even smelling/feeling/tasting things that aren't really there. Dissociative Personality Disorder is when you seem to have one or more personalities, or you switch back and forth between attitudes. To add to this, bipolar disorder is when you can be really happy one moment, and then really depressed the next two seconds, and then switch back (and forth, and back, and forth). I just wanted to make sure that EVERYBODY GETS IT! Schizophrenia and D.I.D. are completely different things, though they sometimes resemble each other, and when using schizophrenia to describe somebody with Dissociative Personality Disorder, or bipolar disorder, please think of this!
Another correction is that I don't really think a lot of people get what the Curse of Achilles in the Percy Jackson books really meant. I know at least some people think it just gave Percy iron skin and made him invulnerable, but it's a lot more than that. I know a lot of people are upset that it went away, but I know I'm not. Actually, when I learned that it would go away while reading the Son of Neptune, I was really, really relieved. The Curse of Achilles gives the bearer iron skin, yes. But it's called the Curse of Achilles for a reason. Anybody who has it is destined to be hit in his/her vulnerable spot. They will die from being hit in their vulnerable spot, not old age, or sickness. And they'll probably die young. I didn't want Percy to die when he was like nineteen because his Achilles Spot got hit, so when it was freed, I was relieved. That freed up the possibility, however slim, of Percy dying of old age instead of in battle.
God damn it! Panic attacks and asthma attacks are not the same thing and cannot be solved in the same manner. Asthma is a common chronic inflammatory disease of the airways that can be caused by many things, such as allergies, genetics, and possibly obesity. Asthma attacks are when this condition seizes up more than what is normal for the person it is affecting, cutting off oxygen and making your day generally sucky. The trigger for asthma attacks can be strenous exercise, cold air, dust mites, yada yada yada. Panic attacks are completely different, being triggered by anxiety. Yes, they do also make it hard to breath, but they CANNOT BE TREATED BY USE OF AN INHALER!!! Very rarely, at any rate. If an asthmatic is having a severe panic attack and their inhaler calms them down and gets their breathing back to normal, I guess an inhaler would work as treatment, but normally, this does not work. Please keep this in mind. THIS SOLUTION WILL NORMALLY NOT WORK! Thank you Teen Wolf fans.
