"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."
"People are mirrors. If you smile, a smile will be reflected."
Random Info of the Day: (Jan 1) My New Years Resolution is to finish everything I started. That means old One Piece and Hetalia fics will be complete, as well as the pairing collections for DragonBall and, just, like, everything. I made a priority list, but I'm not sure how faithful I will be to that. Updated my profile. Sorry it's long.

Hamilton Writing Challenge: 51/51
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?
(That being said - don't worry about perfect reviews. These are only questions to get you thinking of what you might want to tell me. Honestly, if you'd rather - spazz out a little. Tell me what you like. Quote stuff at me from the fic. Smash your keyboard. Whatever. You'd be surprised how much even the smallest reactions help with writing (plus it makes everything feel a bit more interactive lol))
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).
The following list of rules comes from Vestdan over on fictionpress. I have not been on that site in forever and neither has she, but I still love these rules and wish to share. Please know they are not mine.
Vestdan's rules of writing:
"Characters rule the story. I just write it down."
