Rant of the Week:
-Seme/Uke dynamic- What? Like, what? Is it merely who is on top and who is on bottom? Because that's just silly. Or is it personality traits that get applied to our lovable characters? Because that's silly, too. A character is a character and how they act (and there's always a difference between people on how they see said characters) should have nothing to do with how they are in sex. Just. People can surprise you. What you're like in the bedroom has nothing to do with your outward show of personality.
-I am 25 years old and have been engaged to the same man for 6 years.
-I am Catholic and devout but also a pervert of the highest degree.
-I like quotes, video games, fantasy, furries, ponies, learning other languages, and generally anything that is considered weird.
-I am a Music Major. My instruments are clarinet and piano.
-I dream of being an author with at least one kid and lots of cats.
-I have one big happy family and love each and every one of them.
-At times I feel like a hyperactive child trapped behind a huge brick wall of anxiety and fear.
-I write a lot, read a lot, and lead a small friends-only anime group at my university.
-You can love it, you can hate it, you can ignore or adore it. But whatever it is, ah, it's always going to be a part of me.
Favorite Fandoms (aka: universes I will write in):
One Piece addicted.
DragonBall Z: Too old. Forget it. Deleted everything but the Horror of Emptiness storyline because, eh, well, first story I ever finished, though the sequel is a different matter.
Wheel of Time: One story. I wrote a long time ago. Enjoyed it while I was writing. Never going back to it, but it was good practice.
One Piece: Lots of one shots. A few multi-chapters.
Hetalia: I write one-shots on random whims or at requests. Anything more than that is usually the product of a role-play with my sister. The American Civil War story is all mine, though as is the Spamano "Don't Tempt Me." Also, I support a LOT of pairings, but I tend to have a setup that I actually really love. PruCan/UsUk/Spamano/GerIta/RoChu/DenNor/SuFin/SwissAus
-Read Summaries below-
Multi-Chapter: (a progress bar percentage is based on the average chapter size of 3k words (for One Piece fics) and 5k words (for Hetalia fics))
"Claimed" - a LuffyxZoro multi-chapter (30, to be exact) story. Includes AcexZoro and SanjixZoro. A fangirl-like claiming argument ensues between the three of them over who can claim Zoro. A lot of romance. A lot of drama. And a little bit of an adventure. Updates may be long in coming, but I will update the progress bar accordingly.
-[progress]- chapter 8 - 0% complete
"This One Time, For Art Class" - a Zoro/Usopp AU. College setting. Usopp is a nerdy art student. Zoro is a rich kid that doesn't go to class and just sort of wanders around campus and the little town it's situated in. I really really love the plans behind this story and one day, I may actually stop thinking about it and get back to writing it.
-[progress]- chapter 3 - 0% complete
"A Little Problem" - a USUK role-reversal fic in which England is chibi-fied and America has to take care of the child. It's the loss of memories that really causes the problem, especially when America starts making things up in an effort not to mention his own nation status. (After all, wouldn't want to cause some weird mental problems in Iggy by informing his child-self of a nation he has yet to encounter). There's a role-play behind this one, but I'm re-thinking how to make it all work.
-[progress]- chapter 3 - 55%
"Two Sides to Every Story" -a USUK fic, except it's more of Arthur's view of the American Civil War. The Confederacy is a female version of America and is more of Alfred's wife during this time with the states as their children. It's more of a family drama fic with England as the bystander and it has moments of America (the Union) being abusive to the CSA (Confederate States) and possibly the states that leave him as well. Walk with him as I tell the Civil War story through the eyes of a bystander, without making slavery the main point of the story. What? Is that possible? Oh, yes, like you wouldn't believe.
-[progress] - chapter 2 - 15%
"Don't Tempt Me" -a Spamano fic that involves religion. Seeing as most of Italy is Catholic, I figure Italy and Romano would follow the religious observances and with us just entering the Lenten season, well...Romano's decided he's giving up Spain for Lent. Because on the inside, he's tormented about his feelings for Spain and how they conflict with the rules of his faith. Oh, yes, it's one of those gay-but-Catholic fics. Only, I'm Catholic, so I think I can talk about my religion - and poke at it - and make fun of it - without offending? Ah, well, I hope I don't offend anyone.
-[progress] - chapter 2 - 15% (seeing as I have a prelude in this one, likewut)
Series: One World Order - A PruCan-centric series based around Prussia and Canada falling in love while a one-world government begins to move throughout the world, capturing the recently discovered nation representatives. Also includes other pairings: GerIta/UsUk/SpaMano - and even RoChu later on)
"One Month"a PruCan fic in which Prussia makes a bet with his friends that they won't find him someone he hasn't met yet, and if they do - he has to live with them, for a month; Germany and Italy kind of want him out of the house, too, because he keeps interrupting their fun time with stupid jealousy for Germany's attention. What happens? Prussia goes to Canada!
"One Season" the sequel fic to "One Month" in which Prussia is put face-to-face with an old love (Hungary) and finds that he has love in his heart for both her AND Canada. As he struggles with this tug-of-war, Hungary takes advantage and steals him away from Canada. Poor Canada is left to either sit to the side and wait for Hungary to "release" Prussia - or to go after them and make Gilbert realize who /really/ cares about him. Drama galore, my friends. Drama galore.
-[progress]- chapter 12 - 5%
"One Year" the third book, sequel to "One Season" in which...well...spoilers ;)
"One Lifetime: PruCan" - the novella, after "One Year" depicting eh, spoilers, but it follows PruCan specifically (Theme Song: Dead Hearts by Stars)
"One Lifetime: UsUk"-the novella depicting America and England as they cope with, well, spoilers (Theme Song: Don't Forget by Demi Lovato)
"One Lifetime: GerIta" -the novella depicting Germany and Italy as they cope with, yeah, spoilers (Theme Song: A Thousand Years by Christina Perri)
"One Lifetime: Spamano" -the novella depicting Spain and Romano as they cope with...spoilers (Theme Song: Just Give Me A Reason by Pink)
"One Lifetime: RoChu"- the novella following Russia and China's involvement and relationship a little during and after events in "One Year" (Theme Song: Somewhere Only We Know by Keane)
Series: Dragonblade-verse - an AU collection of books placed in my own created fantasy world, one I refer to as "Dragonblade" after the first book of my original fantasy book series. In said world, my sister and I role-played Hetalia into existence using a particular southern continent that I had created but not really developed. Fantasy creatures and story elements crossed with Hetalia. I have yet to give titles to all these stories, but I can say that there will be a book for each pairing. (UkUs, Spamano, GerIta, PruCan, RoChu, SuFin, DenNor, SwissAus, and others possible - and yes, it's UkUs, because it's pirate!Arthur and teenage!Alfred). Also, there's a lot of smut involved in these. I'm kind of ashamed but characters do what characters will.
"The Pirate and the Wolf" -Elf Pirate Captain Arthur Kirkland was conducting business as usual. The crew was supposed to pillage a village for supplies, kill all inhabitants as always, and then they were to return to the sky. But then First Mate Gilbert had to go and bring a young wolf-boy on board. From the moment he saw those determined, defiant blue eyes, Arthur's life became much more complicated than he ever would have imagined possible. UkUs
"Convincing the Cat" - Catrek Pirate Captain Antonio Fernandez Carriedo happens to steal a cabin boy from Kirkland's crew. Said cabin boy has foul language, a terrible attitude, and a desire to be the same as everyone else in his slave race. Lovino is determined to show Antonio why he's not worth it. Antonio is determined to show Lovino why he is. [role-play commencing; working title; more summary to come soon; Spamano]
"Lost and Found" - Half-Elf Gilbert Beilschmidt, First Mate to Captain Kirkland, separates from the pirate crew in the middle of a fight; he ends up injured in the woods and wakes up with a shy wolf-boy treating his wounds, the crew and airship no where in sight. The two join together to search for the airship, and end up growing closer along the way. Now if only Gilbert's past would stop coming back to haunt him. PruCan
"My First" - a collection of LuZo one-shots; some may be continuations of each other, just depends. One shots range from K to M-rated so be prepared.
"You Belong to Me"- a collection of PruCan one-shots; they will range from K to M-rated so be prepared for anything; there may be continuations among them; there will (hopefully) be 30 of these because I found a list of one word prompts to work off of; I do so much better when I have prompts!
Behind the Scenes:
a Zoro/Tashigi high school AU fic that includes several other pairings

-One of these days I am going to make a livejournal or otherwise place to store my stories, in the case of ff.net taking me down for whatever reason; i will keep you updated on my progress with this-
"Procrastinators UNITE!! ... ... tomorrow." --from a shirt
"It's not hawt if you look gay. It's hawt if you ARE gay and you look straight!" - Me
"Wait, was that Prussia in a school girl outfit?!"
"Oh my god, you made America SUPER virgin."
"I'm still amazed at our PruCan role-play smex."
"Let's do some minors...oh that doesn't sound good...especially if I were in Congress." - Music Theory teacher
"Here's what I would do if I were me." - Music Theory teacher, again
"God put a plague on our house and turned our toilet water BLUE!!" - my brother (talking about the cleaning substance to clean toilets)
"Oh no! The plague came back! I blame everyone but me. How could you?!" - my brother (when my mom decided the toilets needed another cleaning)
"Computers...are...morons." - my brother, again, talking about computers in strategy games
"Music directors always have this strange humor that I never understand. They're just too weird."
"Without music the world would Bb." (that's a "B flat") - from a shirt and other music merchandise
"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."--C.S.Lewis
"That's what writing is all about, after all, making others see what you have put down on the page and believing that it does, or could, exist and you want to go there."--Anne McCaffrey
"Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self." - Cyril Connolly
"Don't change color to match the walls. Look like you belong and the walls will change color to match you." - Kender proverb (Dragonlance)
"I've often found, though, that deserving and happening don't always necessarily go together." -Tas (Dragonlance)
"Yet without the darkness, we would never be aware that the stars exist." - Palin(Dragonlance)
"Suck my disc drive!" --friend
"Tell me would you kill to save a life?" - 30 Seconds to Mars, Hurricane
"I'm the conductor. Be my instrument. Let me play upon you." - band director (hahahahahahahaha and he still says it occasionally, too; i love college)
"I hate writing. UGH."
"Okay, finished writing this story. Time to re-read. ... Awesome."
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. Personally, I don't search out 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 terrible? 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?
-So you know what I might be working on next, here is my goal / priority list for my next 15 items:
1) As You Wish - Chapters 2/3 (progress: 50%)
See the pattern? That's the plan. Oh, and whenever I have the "Every 50 reviews" free one shot, that has its own priority, as in...before the next update. Jolly good? Oh, and One Season will definitely have over 20 chapters. Possibly over 30.
"Characters rule the story. I just write it down."
