Author has written 35 stories for Harvest Moon, Hunger Games, Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon, Victorious, Warriors, and Animal Crossing.
Hello, and welcome to my profile! I'm Cotton Candy Mareep (CCM), either an odd little human or a fluffy pink electric sheep. Your call.
I won't post my age or other personal info here, as I don't want it to affect your judgement of my writing. Just read and enjoy (or criticize, whatever. I'm not too picky).
I also have an AO3 account under the same name (CottonCandyMareep) - I might crosspost a few of my stories from here to that account as well, but I'm significantly more active on this site.
What I'm up to now:
Fandoms: Depending on my motivation/interest/cravings, I will read and write about Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons, Rune Factory, Pokémon (games only, especially Mystery Dungeon!), Animal Crossing, Elder Scrolls (Skyrim in particular), Warrior Cats, Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Percy Jackson & the Olympians, Divergent, Wings of Fire. Occasional Homestuck, Disney, DreamWorks, other assorted stuff, etc. etc.
Currently Listening to: Streetlight Manifesto
Currently Playing: Life is Strange, as well as some Elder Scrolls Online
Currently Reading: my own fanfics - editing and revisions are needed
Currently Writing: Differences (Warrior Cats longfic) primary focus, Slaves (Warrior Cats longfic adopted from Claudaujay) secondary focus, Animal Crossing Academy tertiary focus in the way back of my mind
Differences - When a kittypet named Luna wanders onto Clan territory, newly-named warrior Blackfrost isn't too pleased - especially when he ends up having to save her life. He brings her back to his Clan, much to their mutual dismay, but it doesn't end there. As the bitterly cold season of leaf-bare swiftly approaches, clutching the forest in its icy claws and bringing with it many hardships for the Clan cats of the forest, secrets will be revealed and lines will be crossed... But can Luna and Blackfrost, polar opposites from two opposing worlds, learn to settle their differences?
-Friendship/Romance/Adventure; takes place sometime between SkyClan's departure and Bluestar's Prophecy in the old forest territories. In Progress.
Slaves - After a ruthless combined attack from all three Clans, ThunderClan has been destroyed. Their leader, deputy, and medicine cat have been brutalized in front of their own warriors, and even their kits have been massacred. Only six members of the Clan remain – five warriors and an apprentice. The group is split up and imprisoned as slaves within the other three Clans, forced to work for their captors. The past haunts them, and the future looks bleak; however, all is not yet lost. After all, not everyone supported the attack…
-Adventure/Romance; takes place in future lake territories. Story adopted from Claudaujay. In Progress.
Animal Crossing Academy - History is being made at Animal Crossing Academy this year! Their newest student, a girl named Rina, will be the first human to ever attend the prestigious animal academy located in the heart of New Leaf Town. How will she handle her new life at a school surrounded by animals? Balancing classes, homework, club duties, friendships, and possible romances has never been more difficult, or interesting. Featuring a variety of Animal Crossing villagers!
-Animal Crossing high school/academy AU; Friendship/Adventure. In (Slow) Progress.
Birds of a Feather - They were similar, in a way. Two birds of a feather. Both were shy and quiet, keeping their feelings all locked up inside. But where Vaughn was cold and unfriendly, Sabrina was sweet and kind. Perhaps all it takes is a bit of kindness for one cold heart to warm up to the other. My take on Regardless1604's Rival Couples Challenge. Sabrina/Vaughn, with some obstacles presented by Chelsea and Regis.
-Based on IoH. Romance/Drama. Themes Completed: 29/50. Updated Sporadically.
A Beautiful Mess - Because there is more to that beautiful barmaid than meets the eye. 100 drabbles based on various moments in the life of Muffy in Forget-Me-Not Valley, based on Regardless1604's 100 Theme Challenge. Written because I used to greatly dislike her when I was younger, and now I feel bad about it, since she's actually a really interesting character (you know, for a Harvest Moon bachelorette). Note: chapters are not in chronological order, but random. Some Muffy/Griffin and eventual Muffy/Jack.
-Based on AWL. Hurt/Comfort/Drama/Friendship/Family/Romance. Themes Completed: 6/100. Updated Sporadically.
Stuck - The Hollywood Arts gang - Tori, Jade, Beck, André, Cat, and Robbie (and Rex) - find themselves in a bad situation after a night on the town. Now they're stuck here indefinitely, trapped in a cramped, broken down elevator in the middle of a shady parking ramp, with only each other to help pass the time as they await rescue... If it ever comes. Takes place sometime between Seasons 1 and 2.
-Drama/Suspense/Friendship; possible romance. 5/8 Chapters. Veeeery Slow Updates.
Possible Upcoming Stories:
- Darkened Skies (tentative title) - sequel to my Warriors fic Differences, focusing on old characters as well as a variety of new ones as they have to work together to solve a mystery surrounding all four forest Clans. In the sweltering heat of greenleaf, Clan cats suddenly start vanishing with hardly a trace, and only one strange similarity connects the disappearances. Add to that a mysterious prophecy that appears to hint at a deadly frost threatening the safety of all the Clans, and ThunderClan warrior Blackfrost can't help but wonder - is he to blame? Perhaps the answers may be found hidden somewhere within Twolegplace...
- Untitled - series of oneshots based on characters and backstories from my Warriors fic Differences.
- Before the Moon Rises - my own short prequel of sorts to the Warriors: New Prophecy book Moonrise.
- Untitled - Harvest Moon: ToTT Georgia/Kana oneshot, sequel to How the Cookie Crumbles.
- Midsummer Night Dreams (tentative title) - Harvest Moon: Animal Parade romantic comedy featuring Angela as the main protagonist, based on a modernized Shakespearean story and a certain plan by Mayor Hamilton to bring more tourists into Harmonica Town gone hilariously wrong.
- Apples & Oranges - another Harvest Moon: Animal Parade multi-chapter fic featuring a sort-of love quadrangle between Molly, Chase, Maya... and one more surprise bachelor.
And many, many more miscellaneous story ideas that may or may not actually be written.
Update Schedule (Listed by Priority):
3. Animal Crossing Academy (Ch.4) - Orientation Tour
3. Stuck (Ch.7)??
4. Birds of a Feather and A Beautiful Mess drabbles
Updates are not final and may be moved or changed at any time due to other events going on in my life. However, if there is a fanfic of mine that you really like and I haven't updated it in a while, a reminder review may be enough to get me working on the next chapter. I prefer not to leave fics discontinued as long as I have interested readers, though I'm genuinely sorry if it really does take me a long time to get things going again.
as of 6/16/2017:
So, I've realized that I'm far too busy during the months that uni is in session to continue writing fanfiction, what with difficult coursework and time-consuming extracurriculars combined (ahem, marching band). Doesn't help that I had to get a new laptop after my last one died out, as I ended up losing a good portion of my writing for updates on both new and old fics, and had to just take a break after that. However, I do have quite a bit more free time during the summer and winter vacations, so that's when I will try my best to update fanfics and simply write as much as I can, starting today. Top priority right now is my Warrior Cats fanfic Differences (and possibly its eventual sequel, I still have hope), followed by Slaves (the Warriors longfic I've adopted from Claudaujay and have been putting a lot of work into) and sporadic chapters of my Animal Crossing high school AU Animal Crossing Academy. But I've also been thinking about writing stories for some other fandoms if I have the chance, some of which are already in the late planning/early writing stages. I guess it all depends on my time and motivation this summer.
Thank you for visiting my profile page! I hope you enjoy reading my stories, and feel free to leave a review while you're add it!
