"I will stand or I will fall. I will not sit." - Largo, from Megatokyo
"Don’t try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It’s the one and only thing you have to offer."
"Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it."
"The role of a writer is not to say what we all can say, but what we are unable to say. "
Random Info of the Day: (July 17) I had a really rough week, guys. Still recovering somewhat. Have a lot of things I need to do. Have the high school chapter mostly written but I have to add more and I'm not sure I really like what I have atm. It has to be high quality before I post so I'm being picky and I promise I'll have it up as soon as I can.

Favorite Fandoms (aka: universes I will write in):
Will forever and always love Dragonball/Z.
DragonBall Z: Let's just say I'm obsessed with Goku/Chi-Chi and call it a day. Okay? Obsessed is a good word.
Hetalia: I still have a major story arc in an AU for Hetalia planned. I may return one day.
DBZ "STORY OF MY LIFE" COLLECTION FICS:
All of these fics are connected. Meaning they all happen within the same universe. Of course the Goku x Chi-Chi one starts us off (and is my forever OTP), but every other pairing is eventually introduced and carried on. Updates will be based on whichever has the next chapter chronologically. I am using a 100-prompt list to help me plan, but I don't know if I'll actually get through all 100 prompts on all of the pairings. You do not have to read each pairing fic to get the full story but once my original plot line comes into play (which is still far in the future) then you might want to dabble to fill in all the holes. It should be structured to still make sense, but it is up to you if you want to enjoy my master plan road map or not.
PART I: - involves the pairings through established canon, fitting in moments behind the scenes to expand upon the universe -
PART II: -involves the pairings slowly veering from established "post Buu canon" into original expanded AU-
A Thousand Years - Although they start with a fragile bond, through the years Goku and Chi-Chi learn what it means to love as time challenges all they've grown together. Lucky for them, not even death can stop true love. [Goku x Chi-Chi]
Five Hundred Miles - A curious fling, an unexpected responsibility, and somehow Vegeta and Bulma discovered a relationship that meant more than either one ever believed possible. [Vegeta x Bulma]
Wildest Dreams - A kiss to drive him insane. A wish to make her re-think her choice. A romance everyone called impossible. And a relationship to prove love can be found even where we least expect it. [Krillin x Android 18]
More Than Words - Gohan says she's like his mother. Videl says he's the type her father would never approve. They say no words can describe how they fell for each other. [Gohan x Videl]
Clarity - Trunks is jealous, Goten's confused, and the world is falling apart around them while the teenagers are still trying to understand what their special bond actually means. [Trunks x Goten]
Current Road Map of Update Events:

Do NOT judge my writing on those, please.)

Hamilton Writing Challenge: 36/51 (Challenge Due Date - Sept 9)
On Reviews I Give:
I try to keep a policy: if I read, I review, so I hope for the same from others. If you read, it's only courtesy to review - good, bad, or otherwise. Sometimes I leave helpful reviews; other times they're just acknowledgments of "I like this" - though I will leave what I like if I do say that. By reviewing me, you point me to your stories. Does this mean I will diligently read them? No, not necessarily. But I do like to read the profiles, at least, of everyone who reviews or favorites or alerts me.
On Reviews and What I Hope To See:
Personally, I write fanfiction to practice my craft and to take a break from the more seriously approached original stories. I don't search out heavy criticism like I do with my original stories. Certain things are important to me in fanfiction: are the characters in-character - or otherwise explained as to why they're different? Is the plot interesting or terrible? Are the character interactions believable? (THAT one is SUPER important to me) Should there be more or less description? Is the balance between dialogue and narration good or does it need work? Is the pace fast/slow, bearable/unbearable? Do I pull you in and keep you or do you find yourself wandering? Are you enjoying it? Why or why not?
On Reviews and MY RESPONSES to Said Reviews:
I try really hard to respond to everyone, but sometimes I panic (for some awful reason, I dunno). I worry about coming off as too conceited or something in a reply, or I worry about being too defensive. Basically I worry about saying something dumb/stupid/crazy/weird and scaring you off, so if I don't respond to anything you review, that's why. Also - guest reviewers - I can only answer your questions in the next posted chapter. So keep that in mind when you ask something. (Also, I LOVE rambling reviews; I LOVE it when something I wrote sparks you to go off; I LOVE hearing all your reactions; and I LOVE AND APPRECIATE everything you can give me).
