Oi! You there; yeah you, with your bowl a cereal! What's up?
I got some things to say to you!...Actually, I don't, but hey, while you're here, I might as well give my life story, right?
(Cue inspirational music)
So there I was; I never thought I'd get out of it ali- okay not really.
So I was born to a southern family in PA and I grew up as that weird kid. You know, the awkward gaming nerd that everyone kinda knew but really wasn't friends with. Yeah, I was that guy.
In 4th grade I moved and then got into music a lot more, learning the clarinet and recently I've passed AP Music Theory (don't ask what it is) in high school. Also, during 7th grade, I got a laptop and I got Microsoft Word where I started writing really crappy fanfiction that I've never posted. I'm been writing fanfiction for about three years now and I hope to do so a lot more into the future.
Fanfiction, despite the fact that, yes, there are those fics that just make us cringe (I'm looking at you, badly-written-yaoi/yuri-fics), is one of the best gateways into fictional writing in recent years. I love fanfiction, especially ones that make me like characters I normally wouldn't (see You've Reached Natsu Dragoneel, Leave A Message, for Lucy)
That being said, I most likely won't be able to update very regularly most of the time. I'll try and get a chapter on one story posted everyday, but I've also got original works to focus on which, quite frankly, are more important to me because they might actually make me money.
Anyway, here are some things I plan to upload:
King of Killers (Fate/Zero / OC):
While I would normally just give you a plot synopsis, this one is weird. This is basically Fate/Zero...except I have a character from one of my original works as a character in the story, so...yeah...I truly don't know whether I can pull this off, but I'm going to try my damnedest to do it. Instead of basic summary of Fate/Zero, here's a quick backstory of the character.
Sora was born a slave to a god. He eventually escaped that life an devoted himself to becoming stronger in order to stop the gods and Fate from destroying lives like they did his. Eventually, with help from a pure-hearted youth who was like family and others, he succeeded, going on to become Fate's pawn in the Great War, a war fought between the very god he had defeated, the goddess of life, and the god of death, where he was a champion. Afterwards, he inherited the title of God of Death and live governing the dead for centuries, eventually resigning his role and resurrecting his beloved as his final wish, spending the rest of his days caring for her.
I don't know; would you want to follow this guy in the Holy Grail War? That' basically the story in a nutshell, with twists and turns to accommodate for him being there to keep things interesting.
What I've posted of Sora's story can be found here: https://www.fictionpress.com/s/3186212/1/Pure-and-Corrupted
Corrupted (Fullmetal Alchemist):
Everything in this world is twisted; those are the thoughts of a parentless teenager in a time filled with riots and sedition as far as the eye could see.

With a heavy burden, she begins a crusade against those who wronged her, and, as a way of repenting for the sins she's committed, attempts to rid the world of its never ending bastardization of its people, as it is, and always has been, corrupted.
Unfulfilled Desires (Fairy Tail):
Based off of the fifteenth ending for the show, Lucy had recently snuck out of her family's mansion to explore the outside world for the first time alone. She just so happens to walk by and befriend a little pink-haired boy named Natsu, who tells her of the wonderful world of magic, where his father claims that people can go to should they fade away prematurely, still having unfulfilled desires and a strong will.
Color of the Heart (Sword Art Online):
A seventeen year old boy with achromatopsia, the inability to perceive colors, enters the world of Sword Art Online as a spearman in order to temporarily relieve him of his disorder. Haunted by his inability to save a young girl's life in a car accident, he develops a sense of purpose in this game, a way to repent for his inability in the real-world. Ultimately, he must use this purpose to conquer that which cannot be conquered; the human heart.

Will Yuri accept the challenge and become Inigo's Living Legacy? Read the story to find out!
Okay so here's what I look for in a review and what I hate in reviews. Keep in mind that what I want doesn't really matter; reviews are reviews and they're always good. So don't let me dictate how you should respond to stories you like or don't like. But here it is anyway.
Don't just say "good job" or "I liked it". Yes, it's great that you liked it, but what about it did you like? What parts do you think I should focus on more?
Don't say what you would change in the chapter your review on, at least not on detail stuff. Like if I use a song as a motif in the chapter, don't say what song you would've used or shit like that. It doesn't help you or me in any way. If you're gonna critique something, critique the story.
Do feel free to bash the shit out of the story you're reading. The bastard had the courage to put it up, knowing that there was a likelyhood of it being bad and that they'd get crap for it. Granted, don't a dick about it and make it constructive. DO NOT lie and say it was good when it really wasn't. The goal is to help them improve as a writer, not make them believe false notions of quality.
Don't say how it should end or how things should play out. It's just an insult to the writer. Give them a little faith in the product they're making for your reading pleasure. But on that note...
Do make predictions. Guess what might happen next. this shows that you care, that you're invested. I love it when my reviewers make predictions. It gives me a fresh perspective on how the story might be interpreted and guides me in my future writing of that story. It can even shape the story a bit. One of my reviewers predicted a character death that I hadn't thought of, and I thought it was a great idea and I put it in, giving mention that it wasn't originally my idea of course. No need to be an asshole about the whole thing, right?
Your strictly negative input (on my stories) doesn't matter. Chances are I have the whole thing planned out already and don't give a shit if I hurt your feelings int he choices I make. Chances are that your reviews, while nice, appreciated, and valuable in their own right, won't sway me from posting the story in question. And if you tell me that you're going to quit reading if I kill off your favorite character, chances are I'm going to describe their death in the most gory, vicious, disgusting way possible just to spite you.
If you wish to make a negative review, that's fine. However, there has to be some good in it, otherwise it isn't helpful. Saying a story was awful or worthless doesn't really help anyone. It makes the writer feel like shit and it makes the reader feel like they wasted their time. Include advice, like adding more detail or fleshing out the characters more, so that it feels like you made a difference, and you very well might have.
Most importantly, always review at least once on an incomplete story. That's my rule (not that I read many stories anymore). Always leave at least one, preferably on the most recent chapter if I make it that far. If I want to review more, give a kind of journey thing and show how my opinion changes as I read, that'd be even better. But at least once.
