BIO OF NANOOK
What's up, homies? It's me, Mister Nanook! And I am here to show you what happens when a creative mind is unleashed upon this place. I'm 23-years old and live in the West Coast. I write Adventure Time and Regular Show fanfics. Aside from those shows, I occasionally look at Mario, Sonic, Gravity Falls, and Sailor Moon fanfics, as well. I'm a perfectionist, so I update my fanfics frequently just to correct any mistakes. If it's anything drastic, I'll alert the readers. Unfortunately, I suffer from depression on occasion and this impacts my work. Please bear with me as I take time to gather my thoughts when this occurs. If I reviewed your fanfic and you didn't like it, just know it was for a reason. I don't just go around and leave bad reviews because I get a sick, sexual joy out of it. If that somehow pisses you off and you feel the need to diss me, you can go fuck yourself. I don't take shit from bustas here. I won't hesitate to tear your ass apart. Other than that, I hope to get to know all of you!
TIPS ON WRITING FANFICS FROM A HACK WHO ONLY HAD THREE HIT FANFICS
1. Write an outline for your story
Creating an outline that highlights all the moments of every chapter and gives a brief summary will help you in creating a good story and keeping a continuous stream of action. Not creating an outline can usually result in writer's block and no direction on where the story will go. Don't simply write the first chapter and wing it from there. Plan ahead! Know what's going to happen and write about it!
2. Give a good summary to your fanfic
A summary that tells the readers what the story entails and what the readers is essential for views. Don't say something like "I suck at summaries," or anything like that. It shows you're not confident in your writing ability. I mean, if you can't write a summary, what makes you think you can write a story? Always try and never be too ambiguous. And remember: don't spoil anything!
3: Learn to take criticism
This might come as a surprise to you, but not everyone will like your stories. There will be people who disagree with certain elements of your story and will point them out, but remain calm! Use this as a chance to rebut and defend your story. If the reviewer has advice, don't take it the wrong way. They mean well. Avoid using the phrase "don't like, don't read", as it alienates the reader and creates the image of an insecure author, and that's not what you want, right?
4: Know how to spell
Nothing can ruin a story like terrible spelling. The most essential thing about writing stories is knowing how to write words. As a proud Grammar Nazi, bad spelling, grammar and punctuation is something I have no tolerance for. Have a dictionary in hand and for God's sake, know how to spell!
5: Be creative!
Sure, you can write about the same things that everyone else is writing about, or you can take the high road and write about something that's fresh and original! This is the kind of stuff that I like to see around here, and possibly for others, and I always appreciate authors for making an effort to be original. Obviously you're not here to impress me, but it's just something to think about. Be aware that "different" doesn't always translate to "good".
6: Use pacing properly
Nothing bugs me and many readers than a rushed story. Learn how to create build-up and use it to its full extent. Having events happen suddenly without word or build-up will only confuse readers and leave them scratching their heads.
7: Respond to reviews
Nothing makes a reviewer feel more fuzzy inside than an acknowledgement of their existence! If possible, respond to reviews. Your readers will appreciate it. If the review is negative, respond anyway and talk about it. Maybe you two will come up with a resolution and a new life lesson.
8: Make lengthy chapters
The most appropriate amount of words that a chapter should have is 1000. Anything less is generally looked down upon. 500 words is also passable, but not by much. It's generally wise to not write 8K or more word chapters as these can drag on for too long and force readers to not read the entire thing and skimp. Keep them long, but not too long (that's what she said).
9: Let readers know that you're alive
If you're going on hiatus or taking a vacation and won't be able to write, let your readers know. Failure to due so will result in accusations of laziness, cancellation of fanfic, or the death of the writer. Whatever the case, let your readers know and if possible, create filler to pass the time.
10: Follow the rules!
You see those Guidelines that this website has? Follow them! You won't believe how many times I see authors on here breaking the rules. Make sure you don't become one of them. Follow the Guidelines and smooth sailing will be ahead.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS THAT ARE ASKED FREQUENTLY
Q: Can you review my fanfic? What about my friend's?
A: I do review by request occasionally, but it's not exactly a service I provide. If I have time, I'd be happy to give you my two cents. Please note that I am brutally honest and capable of hurting other people's feelings. Proceed with caution.
Q: Why are you so mean to people?
A: I only lash out at people that deserve it.
Q: Can I have some advice for my fanfic?
A: If you're willing to listen to me, then by all means.
Q: Can I suggest ideas for a fanfic?
A: I don't accepts requests or suggestions for fanfics (unless for What If?s). If I didn't come up with it, it's not worth writing.
Q: How about suggestions for future chapters of already-existing stories?
A: Once again, no. I always follow the outlines that I set for my stories. I never seek input for my stories by the fans. Please keep your suggestions, ideas, or requests to yourself.
Q: Can we be friends?
A: As long as you don't ask me to edit your stories or promote you in any way, we can be fanfic buddies. I will not share any personal information whatsoever. It's just something I was taught as a kid.
Q: Why did you cancel (fanfic name)?
A: Many factors can play into a cancellation. It could be because I didn't feel the story had potential, I got bored with it, I couldn't find a way to make it work within its respective universe, and other reasons could play a factor. I tend to post unreleased content from time to time, but don't get your hopes up for a full-on resurrection.
Q: What does "Nanook" even mean?
A: It means "Polar Bear". Nanook was the master of bears in Inuit mythology.
What, you have a question? Ask, then!

RAMBLINGS, OR RATHER ME TALKING ABOUT NOTHING BECAUSE I'M TOO LAZY TO CREATE A BLOG
I'm through trying to find a reason to care about this story anymore. Who am I kidding? I'm never going to find it anyway. Doesn't help that this fandom doesn't appreciate what I do anyway. It's always "update, update, update!" Well, let's just say this wasn't encouraging in the slightest. It also didn't help that when I released something different, the first review was something along the lines of "Just stick to the other story." So that's how it is, huh? I tried shaking it off, but the consensus was clear: All eyes were on this story and nothing else mattered. I cringed every time I gained a new story follower because I knew I couldn't give them the update they wanted. It really depressed me. Needless to say, I am sick of it. The pressure to follow up on it is too high, and quite frankly, I don't think I could succeed if I tried. The last chapter was a massive disappointment and the rest of the story would've suffered as a result. Also, I'm done with Regular Show. It just doesn't interest me anymore as it used to and I haven't seen any new episodes since who knows how long. I wasn't doing the show justice with these terrible stories. Western animation no longer pleases me. Manga and anime have since sparked my interest and reignited my creativity. I've got a huge project planned for the future and I'm very excited to finish up the preliminary development this Spring! This means that I have to cut out the dead weight. I suppose you all know where this is going.
No? Well, I'll spell it out for you: Bound by Lust, Separated by Life is over. I'm leaving this fandom and I'm never looking back. I'll be taking my future stories to the Sailor Moon fandom. If anyone out there still wants to read my work, they are more than welcome to stick around. If not, you can unfollow me now. Send all hate mail to my Twitter account. For those that supported me throughout this run, I would like to say "Thank you".
