Author has written 11 stories for Regular Show, Adventure Time with Finn and Jake, and Misc. Games.
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.

RAMBLINGS, OR RATHER ME TALKING ABOUT NOTHING BECAUSE I'M TOO LAZY TO CREATE A BLOG
Four months. You know, it's not easy being a fanfic author. It's not as simple as opening up a word document and typing away. Sometimes the spark just isn't there. You can't just force it out like a bowel movement. I try to get myself together to create the next chapter, but I just don't have it in me in this moment in time. Is it the show's fault? Am I just lazy? Have I lost the touch? Well, I'm not here to answer those questions. Instead, I am here to make an announcement regarding my position here as a writer of Regular Show fanfiction.
It is with a heavy heart and a pained pancreas that I announce my indefinite hiatus from the Regular Show fandom. To say I lost passion for this fandom is both hyperbole and an understatement. Don't get me wrong; I still watch the show and enjoy it. However, I just can't find the strength to follow up with a new chapter to Bound By Lust, Separated By Life. I can't find the spark that I need to open up Microsoft Word and finish the job. Seeing as that last chapter was garbage, this really isn't much of a surprise to me. This story has been limping its way onto the finish line, and I think it's time for it to take a pit stop. As of 6/17/2016, this story and any future Regular Show fanfics are on hold. This should last no less than three months, but no more than six. I apologize to everyone that was really looking forward to the next chapter, but I have to sit this one out and get my bearings.
I'm sure some of you are asking if this means that I'm cancelling the story. The answer to that is a straightforward "no". I am not cancelling this story. It is too popular and means a lot to my fans and I would be foolish to toss all that away. I'm just going away for a while and perhaps hit some other fandoms. Anyone out there like Sailor Moon? Well, that's something to discuss for another time. For now, I'm taking off. I'd like to thank everyone that has continued to support me throughout this run and I hope I see you all when the new chapter is ready to go. This isn't goodbye; it's just "see you later".
