Author has written 20 stories for Monkees, Doctor Who, Avengers, and A-Team.
Hello, everybody! I'm PlushChrome! It's very nice to meet you.
There are a few things you should know about me. The first is my lack of schooling in Language Arts. Everything I write, I write by instinct and experience. I've never taken any classes or anything, but I've been writing stories for around ten years now, just because it's fun, and I've picked up a few tricks along the way.
Second, I do not write or read slash stories. I don't judge anybody else who DOES write or read slash stories, but, as I once said, "it's just not my cup of tea."
The third thing you should know is that I'm in a bit of a jam right now, and as a result, need to take a step back from all the writing I've been doing since I created this account. For a long time, you see, I had very little responsibilities and so I wrote and published new stories whenever I finished a "chapter 1." Now, however, I don't have enough time to give these stories the time they need and deserve. SO. I've come to a decision. I am only going to focus on one story at a time, and believe me, this is working out so much better for that story, and the quality of my writing is much improved. I have been giving this a trial run, and I've been successful in posting a chapter a week, and the chapters are well thought out and written. The rest of my stories are all on standby, though if I am feeling inspired, you may get a "once in a blue moon" update for them.
My focus story: Teenage Mutant Agent Avengers (The Avengers are "killed" in action, and the world is thrust into a war against Hydra. A year later, SHIELD finds a group of super powered amnesiac teenagers in a Hydra research facility, and the teens are surprisingly very much like the Avengers the world thought dead. SHIELD offers to train the teens to fight the war against Hydra, and the teens agree, all the while searching for answers: Who are they? Where did they come from? And most importantly: Where do they go from here?)
The order of stories I will focus on in the future:
Shattered (Avengers Classification; Tony wakes up with amnesia six years in the future, during a world war. And the Avengers are NOT winning.)
But It Pours (Monkees classification; The Monkees encounter a strange girl with other-worldly powers, who goes back in time and causes them to not ever have met.)
Lifesource (Avengers classification; The Avengers travel to Asgard in secret to investigate the possibility of Loki's innocence, and become involved in a realm-wide war, with Loki the unwilling center of the conflict.)
Nothing Less Than Normal (Doctor Who classification; The Tenth Doctor and Donna are forced to settle into "normal" life while the TARDIS repairs herself, and end up moving into the local haunted house.)
Pickles (The A-Team classification; the team runs into trouble when they pull Murdock for a mission, only to discover that everyone's favorite pilot has gotten his words all mixed up, leaving them unable to understand anything he tries to tell them.)
As for my other stories, I have them on hiatus until the above are completed, save for some that I am going to delete. I will still have the stories saved on my computer, and one day I might decide to re-write them and repost. If I delete any story it will be for at least two of the following three reasons: 1. It is very old and my writing style has changed so much that I just can't finish it the way it is. 2. It was never popular anyway and I can't justify keeping it around, and 3. I no longer like the story, and I would want to change it before continuing anyway.
If a story meets at least two of these criteria, I might decide to delete it. If you really enjoyed the deleted story and wish it to be a priority rewrite, message me and let me know. Part of the reason I chose to keep the stories I did is because of that story's popularity. Not the only reason, but a third of the reason. Your opinion is important to me as a writer, and I want you to let yourself be heard.
Stories on Hiatus:
Ya Had a Bad Day (Doctor Who classification; the Eleventh Doctor, along with Amy and Rory, crash land in a town full of clinically insane characters. At least, that's what it looks like. According to the Sonic Screwdriver, the town and all the people in it aren't really there at all.)
BadWolfBaydotCom (Doctor Who classification; the Eleventh Doctor, along with Amy and Rory, investigate a group of paranormal investigators with a website that is uch more accurate than it should be, and get involved with an alien threat in the heart of London.)
Gather The Troops (Doctor Who classification; when Earth is threatened with a giant spaceship that IS a paradox machine, the Eleventh Doctor enlists the help of past companions... and ends up getting help from some other Doctors as well.)
X Marks The Spot (first fanfic I ever wrote; Psych classification, Shawn and Lassiter friendship story, featuring depressed!Shawn, and Shawn!whump)
High School Changes Everything (Sky High classification, Will and Warren friendship, Will/Layla on the side, featuring dark!Will)
Teddy Alexander: The Lost God (Percy Jackson and the Olympians classification, future story, OC centric)
There's More Than One Heart (Crossover TWEWY and Kingdom Hearts, deleted because Dream Drop Distance came out and this story is no longer canonically correct. In it, Sora enters the Game in order to track the Heartless, and Josh "convinces" Neku to enter yet again in order to protect the Keyblade Master and help him with his mission.)
Here We Go Again: A Cliche Story About A Girl (One shot, Monkees classification; Davy falls hard and fast, same as usual. But when the other Monkees overhear the latest love-of-his-life admit to a friend that she's only using him, they of course have to try and interfere with her plans to break their tiny friend's heart.)
For Pete's Sake (One shot, Monkees classification; Micky sprains his wrist and can no longer play the drums, but with an important audition right around the corner, the Monkees desperately need to find a replacement.)
Monkee In The Middle (One shot, Monkees classification; Davy and Mike are involved in a street brawl, causing a black eye for Davy and feelings of guilt for Mike. Friendship story, no slash.)
The Mystery of Rory Williams (One shot, Doctor Who classification; Crack!fic involving one of the Doctor's strange dreams. Because everyone has a really weird dream once in awhile. And the Doctor is no exception.)
Wait Till You Read Book Seven (One shot, Doctor Who classification; Rose enters the library of the TARDIS to find the tenth Doctor crying over a certain ginger wizard in a book from her immediate future.)
Starkasm (Chapter story, Avengers classification; Tony Stark prides himself on finding new ways to tease and annoy his friends. And the Avengers are beginning to find out that they totally count.)
The Peaceable Four (Chapter story, Monkees classification; The Monkees take a road trip to Connecticut to visit Peter's family, but become involved in a 40's-esque gang war on the way.)
Only One (Chapter story, Monkees classification; It's the birthday of Micky's girlfriend, and the Monkees throw her a surprise party. Of course, nothing is ever that easy for the Monkees.)
Helheim Hath No Fury, And Hela's Feeling Pretty Scorned (One shot, Avengers Classification; Fury is dead, but when he doesn't show up where he's supposed to, Hela must call her father Loki in to help find the missing director.)
There are also two stories that are never "complete," but are on reservation for any one-shots that belong with a collection. These two stories are:
Wonderfilled (Avengers classification, a collection of crack!fic one-shots that really don't belong anywhere else.)
The California Dreamer and the Connecticut Yankee (Monkees classification; a collection of short stories, beginning with how Peter and Micky met, their early friendship, their meeting Mike and Davy, and then introspective looks at different episodes focusing on Peter or Micky.)
Personal favorites and recommended stories; these are what I consider to be my best works, whether they are completed, being written, on hiatus, or on temporary standby:
THE FINAL THING YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT ME:
My name. PlushChrome. People sometimes ask me "What's the story behind PlushChrome?" And I usually say "It's a long story."
But it's really not TOO long, when I think about it. Here it is:
Once upon a time, maybe two years ago, on a different website, I was browsing a forum. In this forum was a thread. In this thread, another member of the site was assigning nicknames to anyone who posted. I posted. He gave me Plush Chrome.
I said "Plush Chrome? What the heck does that mean?"
And he was like "Idk. Plush is soft and like a pillow, so it could mean that you lead a life of luxury, while chrome is metal. So you are luxurious metal."
And I was like "Oh... I like it." And I did. I liked the way it sounded, so I began using it as usernames on new websites. I dropped the space between words 'cause I like that even better.
Then, one day when I was explaining it to someone, I realized that since plush is soft and warm while chrome is unmovable and cold, PlushChrome is literally the bringing together of two opposites. PlushChrome is an impossibility by definition. And as my lifetime goal is to take impossibilities and do them anyway, it's a perfect representation of me. To paraphrase that famous wizard Gandalf the Grey, "PlushChrome means paradox, and paradox means... me."
So that is the story behind PlushChrome. It is a constant reminder that NOTHING is truly impossible, and that the "impossible" is a mystical wonder worth chasing. Is there a possibility of plush chrome? Can plush chrome be accomplished? These questions, alongside many others, are questions that I intend to one day answer.
And now I leave you with one of my favorite quotes of all time, and a mantra that I try my hardest to live by:
"There is never enough time to do or say all that we would wish; the thing is to try and do as much as we can with the time that we have." -The Ghost of Christmas Present, Scrooge: The Musical
