Author has written 30 stories for Kirby, Mario, Lengendary Starfy, Luigi's Mansion, and Super Smash Brothers.
NOTE: I'm sorry I haven't replied to any PMs or anything lately. It's just that I am literally working on borrowed time (an extension) for my latest assignments, and class sign-up is next week, along with a bunch of other stuff. The stress in my household isn't exactly the lowest thing ever at times. So I apologize for any inconvenience; I don't hate you or anything; you haven't offended me...I just have to get stuff done!
I tried to change my 3DS Mii's nickname to 'Luigi*Knight', but it didn't have enough room for the open star OR all of 'Knight', so now it just looks like 'LuigiKnite'. STUPID CHARACTER LIMIT!
Well hello there! The nickname's Cos; the 3DS friend code's...well, if you want it, just ask. I like to get to know people a little first before swapping friend codes.
I'm not really good at saying anything about myself, but there are a few things that you may want to know about me, just to make my quirkiness more easy to bear.
1. Social interaction scares me. I've been told that I'm too harsh, cold, or realistic when speaking and that it offended some people unintentionally. Or sometimes, I say something that sounds perfectly fine and then people just don't talk to me anymore. This is why when you PM me, my reply time will get longer every time I talk to you. I have trouble talking to people, and if you were the last one to respond, it means you haven't been offended/hate me yet, and therefore makes me feel secure. I do tend to get busy quite a lot and make my PMs late, but this point is big; it practically dominates my existence.
2. I tend to overcomplicate things. Even my mom will nod and quote me with 'I didn't think it was that simple...'
3. I'm up for college, round two! It's uh...been a nice ride. Definitely filled with nice assignments. But definitely easier on my conscience, self confidence, and whatever-else-you-call-your-actual-person than when I was teaching myself solely by myself. I avoid teaching myself like a plague after putting up with all that crap.
4. I am a pure Nintendo nerd!
(Also a side note: I am a Christian. No religious riots intended; your thoughts and beliefs are yours and mine are mine. I just feel bad for not copy-and-pasting all those endless copy and pastes.)
All right, I think that's about it--oh wait! Just so I don't have to say this in all my stories: I do not own any franchises I write about.
(For the 3DS: The games I can play with you as of now are Mario Kart 7, Mario Tennis Open, and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. My sister is the Animal Crossing nut, if you wanted her.)
Favorite Genre: Depends on my mood, for both reading and writing. In writing, I rarely use one strict genre, however; there are always other little elements that creep in. At one point I wrote humor and parody, but as I improved, I found myself drifting away from the way I used to pull it off. Now I'll always have more genres/elements than just humor/parody to go with it; that sort of thing will usually be secondary or completely random in occurrence.
Favorite plot gimmick that I have an obsession with reading (you all KNOW you have these): ANYTHING THAT PROVOKES CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT. Why does everybody hate writing it? Yes, it's difficult and takes practice, but I feel that character development is one of the most important aspects of the story, and when people cheap out or even SKIP moments that can show the workings of a character, I feel so cheated. This is probably why it's so dominant in my stories, if you didn't notice--if nobody else likes writing it, who will? I know some people will persevere, but since I already like it, I'll add mine to the pot! Scenarios for character development include but are not limited to: characters being injured, forced into a situation, being physically/mentally compromised, etc.
As you may have noticed, I haven't uploaded anything in a long time. It's because I've been working on longer projects behind the scenes, but can't post them until I'm done just because of previous experience (in other words, as the story went on, there are things I'd left out/changed, so I'd have to spend mountains of time fixing the mistakes). Also, for some reason or another, I've 'fallen out' of almost all my older ideas/plans that I had, including stuff that was partially written. With a bit of work I can get a grip back on them, but for now I just have a small handful of projects I'm working on behind the scenes.
Oneshots Withheld (2): It's Just a Story (~2500), It's Her Choice (~1100).
StreetPass Plaza's 'Find Mii' parody: (Current Status: On hold) I've been so busy writing deep stories that I've practically forgotten how to write a proper comedy story...I'm also videotaping my progress off this, so it depends on StreetPasses as well. Maybe I'll upload them all at the end. But for now, this isn't going anywhere.
(Kirby) Family Reunion: (Current Status: Somewhat steady, 43,000 words so far) I can't tell you my reason or backstory for writing this anymore, as it would give too much away, but if you like Meta Knight, Waddle Dees, or Bandana Dee (he doesn't get AS much screentime, but he definitely shows up for a nice chunk of screentime), this is up your alley! This is mainly all character development/friendship/family stuff, because you guys know how much I love it, even if everybody else hates having to write it. :D Oh, and OC alert because I can't have a tribe of faceless Waddle Dees. If you want an OC preview and a little story hint, head over to dA from this link by removing the spaces: thecosmicpenguin . deviantart . com/art/Colder-than-Steel-568751967?ga_submit_new=10%253A1446338932&ga_type=edit&ga_changes=1
Kirby Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Story: (Current Status: Scribbling and modifying ideas) I don't know if this is worth mentioning, because it will be incredibly long and I might just combine all the paths (somehow) into a story as long as the Kirby anime itself. And also probably darker. No, definitely darker, and more psychologically complex.
The Kirby Crew's Vacation!: Yes, I may get this back up and running! It will probably be MUCH different from before, but still with everything you loved about it! Of course, like any chaptered fic, it'll probably be withheld for a while before uploading.
(Unnamed Kirby Christmas AU): Well, this is certainly unexpected! My friend was doing a Christmas series for our writing blog, so I wanted to do one too. :3 I felt like I should change things up a bit for it (as I'm already thinking about doing a Kirby Christmas story) and I needed to do one fast, so it's a gijinka AU gameverse thingy in four parts. Of course, since I only post bimonthly, I'll probably hold off posting it here and just post every week in December up 'till Christmas. If you wanted a sneak peek, however...try looking for 'writers heart' (I didn't pick the name, for the record, but you could probably tell that because it didn't involve ice). I can't guarantee you'll find it, as I haven't searched for it myself, but if you find it, 'It's Her Choice' should be there as well, along with bits from that Parm and Memu request (which I renamed on the blog just for simplicity's sake).
I don't do requests (I get nervous because I like to do things my way, plus stories take an ETERNITY for me to complete, as you know), but I welcome feedback and/or critique on my stories! I'm a perfectionist, so hopefully I'll have weeded out the pettier issues so you don't have to waste time on lower-level stuff. If I miss any of that, however, PLEASE let me know! Worrying about my writing is a major time-sucker of mine!
For those who still want more story status info: Sorry, you're just gonna have to beg. I really need to write more oneshots though; I have two that could work out really nicely...
Fics I Need to Fix (haha, get it? Fics, Fix? ...No?):
Cool and Calm: I am still unsatisfied with Kirby's anger in the beginning. It serves no plot point at all, but I'm just a little too lazy to edit it, which means stuff might just get chopped. Everything else though, I'm pretty happy with. Hopefully this'll be revised soon...I'm NEVER trying to revise an old story again! (Watch me do it again, and again, and again...)
Revision Level: 2.9/4, 73% completed.
7/5: Also, a separate note: 'Planning' is cancelled, if anyone remembers it. I am replacing it with a better-suited story to the game, rather than what I was originally intending. So, there will still be another story about Air Ride's origin, but it won't be solely on its origin. What does that mean? You'll find out, when I get around to it...(meaning a long time)
10/30: Sorry, been busy with schoolwork...I'll hate when I have to go off and do my real engineering work, but hey...it's just the math that really gives me trouble, so hopefully when I finish that, I'll be in the clear! I'll get back to the archive sometime; I'm sure I've been long forgotten...eheh. This is why people below college age are the only ones who can write fanfics on a timely schedule...
Longest Pokémon Shuffle Combo: 192 in a row (Golbat; 'A New Pokémon Safari!') (and I STILL got an A rank! NOT an S! How is that possible?! Is it based off of how many moves you have left instead of your points?)
Also along the line of those funnies, I just caught Latios on 5% catchability...on his escalation battle.
