Author has written 7 stories for Avengers, Spider-Man, and Super Smash Brothers.
Basic overview of me:
I've joined fanfiction.net since 2012, and so far I have loved writing about some of my favorite characters in the movie and video game universes, even though I really only write about The Avengers and Super Smash Bros. Those two just happen to be the ones I care the most about. The type of stuff that I really like - or rather care - to right about are fanfics that aren't typically 'pairing' fanfics. To be more specific, 'limes' or 'lemons,' and even more extreme than that (I'll leave that up to your imagination). The whole purpose I joined this website was because I thought it was a great way for me to write some of my favorite movie characters in different situations, but reasonable ones, of course. Though, I do like to use parodies of different characters and whatnot. Typically Super Smash Bros. will be the category I play around with a lot with these kinds of things, but The Avengers, not so much. I feel the purpose of fanfiction.net is to say, "Gee, I really wish I could be given the opportunity to write the script for some of my favorite movies or TV shows. Thankfully, with fanfiction.net, now I can!" That's just me, and that's all I really write on this site for, not for other things that I mentioned before.
Fanfiction also betters me as a writer, and keeps me occupied somehow. I believe reading and writing is important to keeps your brain in check, so at least, when I can find the right stories, I can still do that on this website where I can read about things that I actually like. That's also why I try to write with the best of my ability. When searching for a good story to read, I typically like ones with great organization (as in the writer obviously knows how they want the story to go, it appears to be well planned and though out, there isn't just random paragraphs all over the place), moderate detail (not too much, but just right to keep me entertained), proper grammar, seldom use of big words (it's good to learn some new ones every now and then), are rated T, and just have a good story to tell. You have no idea how many stories I've seen on this site that are so cliche, especially pairings and whatnot. Having a creative and original story is always fun to read, even if the characters themselves aren't original.
To me, a good writer doesn't need to write like Shakespeare or Edgar Allan Poe, they just need to be able to tell a good story. To me, the story comes first. But, a writer should still sharpen their skills in the principles and fundamentals of writing itself, to make their story flow more. I like stories that seem to have a nice flow to them. That right there is talent. Sometimes my mind races with so many ideas that I just start writing, which is okay. A lot of writers are like that. But I find it's easier to right when I organize and plan my stuff out on paper. That way it looks more professional and it sounds better in someone's head when they read it. The way I usually organize my stuff is by taking a piece of paper and drawing a line. At the first end of the line I write 'Beginning,' in the middle I write 'Middle,' and at the end of the line I write 'End.' With those three sections, I basically write what happens throughout the story using only those three; what happens in the beginning, the middle, and the end. I make these very brief - probably no more than a sentence long.
Then, between two of these categories (let's say Beginning and Middle), I write what happens between the two events. Once I do that, I then write in between that new event and another (maybe Beginning and the new event). And then I write between another, and so on. This way, I know where and how I'm going to write and organize my story, and I know what leads up to what. This can go on and on, and on until you run out of space. The more you can manage to squeeze in, the better. Some people feel that stressing the importance of organization takes away the creativity of writing, but I disagree. I actually think it helps bring out your creative side. After all, you are still the one responsible for what happens in the story. You're only putting in place so that it's well structured. And this can also help fill in as many plot holes as possible. Plot holes are one thing that really bugs me. I know, plot holes are likely discovered by people who are too strict about a perfect plot, and just have to be a pain in pointing them out, but once I do discover a plot hole in a story, I just can't shake it off, and it starts to annoy me a lot. Stories should be consistent. They can still be good, but they should also be consistent.
My theatre teacher told me something that I'll always remember: Art is in the specifics. That means every little detail should matter to an artist, whether it's painting, sculpting, singing, dancing, acting, and writing. Art is a reflection of life, and vice versa. Pieces of work that show this the most appeal to me more. Not everyone feels this way, but it does to me. Even though I said before that I don't like too much detail, that doesn't mean you can't portray a somewhat accurate portrayal to the real world a bit. Despite writing for categories like The Avengers and Super Smash Bros. (a video game), I still try to write them as if aspects of the real world still existed, except being intertwined with fantasy elements. It's always good to balance the two. Not too much, and not too little, but just right. Most of this I do through my use of dialogue. I do my best to make it seem realistic, and not things we've already heard a lot of from Hollywood. I admire Quentin Tarantino for this. His written dialogue for his characters are just natural to how regular people would have conversation. Even in Kill Bill, a movie which by no means is 'realistic,' I was still convinced by the character interactions. I also find that more entertaining to read as well than something I've already heard.
I like writing my stories as if they're movies. That is, I like the visual aspect of writing. Being able to make your readers see through the world I'm trying to tell. I know that's how most stories should be anyway, but I really want my work to feel like an actual film. One unique way that I do this is by giving some of my stories soundtracks. It may seem pretty bold, but I like doing something a little different. I think music means a lot to a film. It sets us in the mood of the film, and gives us the emotions we need from it. A good example of this is classical music. Any time there's a dramatic scene in a movie, like someone dying, or just anything, classical music makes it 10 times more moving. It's actually been scientifically proven that classical music has an emotional effect on our brains. Though, I don't listen to it as much, but it's really nice when I get around to it. So adding my own soundtrack to my stories makes them more fun and lets my readers visualize and feel the moment of things better, I'd say. For one of my stories, Fury's Angels, I added a full soundtrack for it. Of course they are songs from other artists, but then again, this is fanfiction.net. You're free to use a lot of things without being accused of copyright. Music is an art as well, and a powerful one.
So that's basically me in a nutshell. Writing may not be my passion, but I love it as a hobby. It's always fun to create something that you know you are entitled to. Well, then again, this is fanfiction.net, so perhaps you don't have very much ownership over the characters you write about. But oh well, you understand what I mean. I'm just glad enough that this website does exist. I love reading and reviewing other people's work, and I love to help make them better writers. I myself am also open to constructive criticism. It's always good to hear someone's else's opinion as well, unless I see to it that it isn't really important. One day it would be nice to collaborate. I don't know how that would work, but it would be fun.
Also, I am open as a beta reader! If you're interested, please feel free to message me via PM and we'll see what we can do together.
