Author has written 6 stories for Pokémon, and Star Fox.
Gender: Female (obviously)
I just graduated high school, and I'm in that stage of life where I'm trying to decide what kind of person I want to be and what to aim for in life and stuff. I'm planning on going to college next year and I'm going to work towards becoming an English teacher.
If you really want me to summarize myself as a person, then here it is: I am not an outgoing person, but I really love people. I believe in being honest, and being who you are instead of trying to please people. I believe in standing up for what you believe without ripping apart the beliefs of others around you. And I believe that the key to success and happiness is communication. People need to know how to talk to other people or else bad things typically happen. You don't have to be super talkative, but you do need to know how to have a conversation. Believe me. There are wrong ways to have a conversation.
I guess all you really need to know about me as a writer is that I love it, and consider it as an art. I try to do my best, but I usually feel that my best isn't quite good enough, because I know that while my writing is above average for someone my age, there's a lot of things that I've yet to learn.
I don't want to make this horribly long and boring, so I'll just briefly touch on a few things.
Brief Description of Self: I'm a bit taller than the average high school girl, but not by much. I have long, wavy, light brown hair, and green eyes with a blue ring around the iris. My nose is a bit too big for my liking, but whatever. Oh, and my nails are always painted. I am straight. I am also a Christian, and I am not ashamed to say that on my profile.
Currently I am single, so... hey boys! (Sorry. I felt awkward typing that).
Video Games: All Pokemon Games (excluding Dash, because let's face it: Dash sucked), All Starfox Games, Most Mario Games, Super Smash Bros (all 4), Fire Emblem games, and The Legend of Zelda and the Ocarina of Time.
Books: Warriors, The Hunger Games, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, 1984, Wintergirls, Peaches, Dizzy, Indigo Blue, How I Live Now, The Fault in Our Stars, the Divergent series, Game of Thrones (I would call it by its real series, but more people know what I'm talking about if I call it Game of Thrones), The Book Thief, Atonement, and Becoming Bindy Mackenzie. There are so many other books I love, but this is what came to mind right now.
One thing that I'm really into right now is reading essays. Famous people have written all kinds of great stuff. My personal favorite is The Opposite of Loneliness, which is a book of short stories and essays written by Marina Keegan, who was a talented writer who died right after she graduated from Yale and never got to have her career. I really want to read Shane Dawson's book of essays, I Hate Myselfie, soon too.
I also quite like the short story: The Cold Equations. And I can definitely appreciate good poetry.
Other things I like: purple, weapons (daggers are my favorite), laughing, kittys (shut up, its spelled right), Nintendo, Sheik, flowers, playing the flute, notebooks, crayons, flip flops, Mountain Dew, black licorice, randomness, reading/writing, my pikachu hat, role playing, shooting guns, and drawing. (I kinda just threw some random stuff in here).
Oh, and when it comes to YouTube, I really love Smosh, Shane Dawson, and PewDiePie. I'm somewhat into Jenna Marbles too.
Things I hate: Twilight (sorry, not sorry), heavy metal music, cheer leaders (the ditzy kind who flash people on purpose while they're cheering), Math (I'm not bad at it, its just boring as crap), dogs, and ginger ale.
A teenage girl about 17 named Diane had gone to visit some friends one evening and time passed quickly as each shared their various experiences of the past year. She ended up staying longer than planned, and had to walk home alone. She wasn't afraid because it was a small town and she lived only a few blocks away.
As she walked along under the tall elm trees, Diane asked God to keep her safe from harm and danger. When she reached the alley, which was a short cut to her house, she decided to take it. However, halfway down the alley she noticed a man standing at the end as though he were waiting for her. She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for God's protection. Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped round her, she felt as though someone was walking with her. When she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past the man and arrived home safely.
The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl had been beaten in the same alley just twenty minutes after she had been there. Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could have been her, she began to weep. Thanking the Lord for her safety and to help this young woman, she decided to go to the police station. She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her story. The police asked her if she would be willing to look at a lineup to see if she could identify him. She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the alley the night before. When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed. The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was anything they could do for her. She asked if they would ask the man one question. Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her. When the policeman asked him, he answered, "Because she wasn't alone. She had two tall men walking on either side of her." Amazingly, whether you believe or not, you're never alone.
PS: God is always there in your heart and loves you no matter what, and if you stand up 4 him he will stand up for you.
You will notice that at the end of that last section, there was no "repost this or you're not a real Christian, blah blah blah" stuff. Personally, I think that it is childish to put that at the end of an inspiring story like that. Maybe you don't have time to repost it, or maybe you don't even know how. Or maybe you already have like 100 things like this on your profile. Do not feel pressured by people to repost this kind of stuff when you read it. God isn't going to hate your guts because you didn't repost something. I say that if you want to repost it, repost it, and if you don't feel that it's quite right for your profile or you already have too much stuff on your profile, then appreciate it and move on.
Pokémon Stories I Recommend:
If you are looking for stories like My Summer Away and Miles Away, then I recommend the following:
1. "Misinterpreted Love", "Misguided Love", and "Misconstrued Love" by Rolyn. This trilogy is one of the best Contestshipping themed works on this site. Other shippings are present as well.
2. "What Boys Want" by SurferGurl14
3. "Summer Love" by nessa3456
If you want some good romance/drama/humor stories that focus on one shipping, then I recommend the following:
1. "Rivalry Cruise" by Cookiekitten (Contestshipping)
2. "Senior Year" by Bittersweet Romanticide (Pokeshipping)
3. "Love Beats Everything" by Unfourtanate (Contestshipping)
4. "The Prince and I" by BluechanXD (FerrisWheelshipping)
5. "Re: Bluebells and Lavenders" by EvilPenguinRika (Ikarishipping)
If you want something a little more unique and uncommon, and just plain epic, I recommend the following:
1. "You're Not Alone," "Voices," and "Finding Home" by Glory For Sleep. This is an amazing trilogy that centers on Contestshipping, but includes others as well. I'd say these are my favorite stories on this site, so I can guarantee that they won't disappoint you. It is rated M, and has some gore though, so beware if you aren't okay with that.
2. "The Champion's Beginning," and "The Leader's Origin" by Pure Gamer. These two fics are about Cynthia's rise to being champion and Volkner's journey to becoming a gym leader. They're both incredible stories, so go check them out!
3. "Monster" by Rolyn.
4. "Canon Rape" by Bittersweet Romanticide. This story makes fun of the stereotypical fanfics, and is good if you want to learn about writing Pokémon fanfiction. And it's also good for a lot of laughs!
5. "For the Longest Time" by bass0bassinum. RedXLeaf.
6. "Corsula Cove" by SurferGurl14. Really good horror/mystery story with multiple ships.
7. "Secret Tapes" by Bittersweet Romanticide. This is my favorite one shot story on the site. It's hilarious, read it if you want to laugh!
