Intro to SnowySnivy
Ramblings on my Stories and/or My Thought Process While Writing Them
I have finally decided to scrap The Kill, Fate/Silent Cries, My Father, and Ice Queen. I just felt as if Ice Queen had too little purpose to it (and Icie was rather unlikable), and The Kill had way too many unnecessary characters and just overall too much story to keep up with; it would have went absolutely nowhere very quickly. (I'm pretty sure that I just had some subconscious urge to follow in Orangeshoelaces's footsteps and create a cool gijinka story like The Children of Jirachi, anyway.) If anyone is still wants me to write Pokemon stories, however, have no fear! I don't plan to stop writing Pokemon stories forever. In fact, I'm considering doing another gijinka story, starring Hilda and following her throughout Pokemon Black. Possibly a nuzlocke. Key word: Considering. I make no promises.
Now, concerning My Father and Fate/Silent Cries, I, just as I felt with Ice Queen, felt as if they served too little purpose. Even though I would like for there to be more Mordred stories to be written, we still know how his/her life will end up, and what he/she ultimately becomes. It is a pointless story. I have the exact opposite issue with Fate/Silent Cries, however. I know that I said I would go back and edit the last two chapters, but then I realized that there are so many (insert number-th) Holy Grail War fics out there, and I don't feel as if I can offer up enough new material to the table. In addition, I don't like any of the directions that I could have taken it in at all. Arturia and Gilgamesh don't need a third war, anyway. As much as I hate the fact that Shirou somehow managed to defeat a much more talented and experienced magus like Kirei, what's done is done, and both of their stories were settled, and are finally over with.
I'll leave all stories on the site for people to enjoy, should you so desire, but these four are permanently discontinued.
Also, if you need to contact me but, for whatever reason, can't via PM, I set up an Email for this account that I can be contacted through:
Hi, SnowySnivy here!
(You can find some of my other (discontinued) stories on my previous account.)
You can call me Snowy, Snow, Refugee, whatever you feel comfortable with. Also, because of my DA account name (SnivyGurl), I don't mind being called Snivy, Sniv, Snivers, all that good stuff. I prefer Snow or Snivers, though.
The cover for Ice Queen was drawn by All0412, and Epiphany's and Avalon's was drawn by tama-lynn, on deviantart. You can find these (gorgeous) pictures under my favorites (from the link above). And, once again, All0412 and tama-lynn, thanks so much for letting me use them!

Animes not to bring up with me if you don't want to hear negative comments:Fruits Basket (I know, I know; shoot me), Familiar of Zero, Bleach (I won't bash it, but it wasn't my cup of tea, and I don't like listening to people going on and on about it), the original Fate/Stay Night, High School of the Dead, Diabolik Lovers, and Fairy Tail. If you like them, then fine; just don't try to extensively converse with me about them (unless you want to hear why I dislike them), and we should be good.
I'm one of those creeps that likes to stalk the pages of my reviewers/favoriters/alerters/etc... So if you don't want me going through your profiles, stories, and/or favorites in hopes of finding something to keep myself entertained, try your best not to let me know of your existance.
*Fades into shadows*
I'm going to put Avalon's comments up at the top here, since it's my first non-Pokeman story here, and I'm actually pretty proud of it. So, like I said in the author's note, I wanted to write something for Gilgamesh and Arturia (No, I don't refer to her as "Saber"), since I ship them so hard. But, the thing is that it can be very difficult to write a believable relationship between them. Trust me; I've looked up most of the stories on FF with them as the main pairing (surprisingly, there aren't that many), and all the ones where they were an actual couple just made them both seem out of character. The fact that I see Arturia as slightly aromantic (ignore the whole Shirou cannon thing, please) and it just makes imagining them as a legitimate couple even harder. Really, pretty much the only situation I can see between the two like that is Gilgamesh raping her, and no one wants that.
So, in order to solve this problem, I did a bit of character analysis on Gilgamesh by giving us his thoughts throughout most of the Grail Wars. Now, you may have noticed that there were a few details that seemed off or missing, but those were, for the most part, things that I figured he would find "unworthy" of his attention. And, as a side note, I found finding a genre for Avalon extremely difficult. I guess that if you could call Gilgamesh's twisted "affections" for Arturia "love" that it would be romance, although I was thinking more along the lines of an "Insanity" genre, since that's pretty much all it was. Also, yes, yes I did take quite a few of the quotes that Gilgamesh actually said during the anime and put them in the form of his thoughts. I thought that it made things sound a bit more authentic, more Gilgamesh-like, you know? But, yeah, that's pretty much all that I have to say on that subject.
Now, while I'm on the subject of a Gilgamesh/Arturia relationship, let's keep in mind that Arturia kinda hates him. Kinda. So, really, it would be seriously out of character for her to ever give him what he wanted. There are, however, several people who seem to think otherwise, so Epiphany is simply my response to those people who think, "Oh, no; Arturia loves him! She's just too tsundere to admit it!" She isn't, people. I'm sorry to tell you this, since I love them as a couple as well, but they're probably only appealing simply because of the fact that there's no possible way to put them in a believable relationship as a couple. A big part in why Gilgamesh liked her in the first place was because of the fact that he knew he could never have her, anyway. But that's just my two cents. Feel free to think whatever you want. :/ Now, I'm not really sure if this should be an "M" rating or not because, you know, implied sex and undescribed naked Arturia, but I kept it as "T" because of the fact that it is implied and undescribed. If you feel differently, leave a review or PM me to tell me. I don't want this taken down, and I also don't want to make it seem like too much for its current rating. Also, anyone else think that its other genre could be horror or something? I dunno, but while I was picturing this in my mind, the dream Arturia's seemed pretty dang creepy to me. But maybe that's just me, because I don't have that much of a backbone at all...
Realizations is just a little something I came up with when I finally gave into the AU fad. Originally, I was planning on a love triangle (DiarmuidXArturiaXGilgamesh), but then I realized that 1: I can't really see Di and Turia as anything more than bros, and 2: Gilgamesh is way too psycho and cruel and... well, he's just too much of a sadistic asshole to end up in a real relationship; I'm pretty sure that if she had to pick between Gil and Di, Arturia would pick Diarmuid in a heartbeat. So, as in Fate/Zero, Arturia and Diarmuid will simply have a bromance, whereas Gilgamesh will be the yandere stalker that can't take "no" for an answer. Now, I will say that I will try to keep the high school crap to a minimum, as that was part of what made me dislike Fate/Stay Night so much. The only reason that I picked this was that I wanted to make a modern-day AU (still with some hints of magic and such), and I really can't see Arturia as a full-grown adult just quite yet. Maybe a college student or something, but at the time that I started writing this, I hadn't been to college, and so I wouldn't have had any reference to know how to write that setting. Still, not everything will revolve around the school; except for El-Melloi (who (I believe) was a college professor in Fate/Zero, anyway), none of the more adult characters will have anything to do with the school, and I have a lot of plot revolving around Arturia's past, which has nothing to do with high school.
Now, another reason for Realizations is that I just love the Arthurian legends, and I can't help but wonder how they could be adapted to the modern world (with some hints of magic and such). Now, I will not say that I am an expert in the legends by any means, but when I read I Am Mordred and I Am Morgan Le Fay by Nancy Springer (which were both amazing novels, BTW), I just lost it with love for these stories, and I have done some more research on the figures in these stories ever since I discovered Fate/Zero. Still, I am a total newbie when it comes to Arthurian legends. Thus far, I only know the basics and just about anything from Wikipedia about Mordred (because he's my favorite Arthurian figure), but from what I have panned out on Arturia's history-based backstory so far, I really like what I have. Also, you may notice in the next chapter that is to come that Arturia's hair style is different than in the Fate/series (Her hair is longer in the front, and cropped pretty close to her head in the back.), but this is what I imagine what her hair would have looked like while she was King Arthur. Because when they went through the flashback in the anime, I could help thinking "Did she seriously have Camelot convinced that she was a guy?"
Attachment was one of those stories that just came to me while reading the Fate/Stay Night visual novel. I caught so many small hints and implications about Arturia seeing a potential heart-wrenching threat in Illya in the VN that I could help but point them out, and exaggerate, them a little. It was a just plain depressing thought to me, especially because of what happened to poor Illya in the Unlimited Blade Works path. However, I do think that Arturia came to terms with things and found a bit of comfort in her situation by the end of the Fate route... One of the very few things I actually liked about that route, even if Shirou's constant bitching pissed me off...
*Edit* So, yeah. I found out that Arturia (apparently) didn't know that Illya was Irisviel's daughter. I think it might have been Nasu, himself, who said that she had never asked for Illya's name, and that she figured that Illya was too young to be Irisviel and Kiritsugu's daughter, which I honestly find to be a load of crap. I mean, they're, well, excuses, but, what with Illya looking pretty much identical to her mother, and having an almost identical name, you's think that she's pick up on something, at the very least. Plus, are you meaning to tell me that Illya's name NEVER came up in conversation?? But... Arturia and Iri were so close! Just take Attachment as a take on how Fate/Stay Night might have been, had Arturia known who Illya was.
Now, Fate/Transfer! :D I know that next to no one has even read this, but I, personally, am psyched for this story! I've already got so many things planned out. I've got this alternate universe, and how it connects with others, planned, and I have a bunch of different servants from some of my favorite animes put into it already, and Arturia is a FREAKING AWESOME POLICE COP! HELLZ YEAH!
Fear, on the other hand, is something that I'm writing to get myself back into the swing of things for Sticks and Stones and Insanity, since I find Shizuo insanely (no pun intended) hard to write. Like, even harder than Izaya. I know: strange, right? Hikari is also a character that I created while I was in my "I like to draw gothic people" phase. Which, I will admit, I am still in. I also started thinking, because of her ironic name, how she would get along with Shizuo, and figured that it could take a while, considering both of their personalities, but they could get along fairly well. Fear will also contain a bit of exploration, for me, into the different types of things people fear, stereotyping, and what it means to be a friend.
Also, I apologize for anything that seems off regarding Hikari's drunken stupor in chapter 3, as I, myself, do not drink, and the only drunk person I've personally talked with was a middle-aged man that pretty much told my dad I was hot while watching the Super Bowl (when I was, like, fifteen). Thus, once I have met more drunken people, I may go back and edit it for verbal (and behavioral) accuracy.
I wouldn't count on it, though.
Danger Zone is a bit of weird one for me because I don't normally do collections on one-shots. It's especially strange for me, though, because all of the little stories I have planned for it kind of connect, so it can be argued it's more of one big over-arching story, which means that I have to make the presentation and resolution of the individual problems in each chapter more prominent than I normally would. Then there's also the fact that I have almost no clue how to write out the relationship between Idate and Tatsumiya, so each chapter is just one big challenge for me, as I have to figure out what attracts the two to one another. It doesn't help that, alternatively to what I have for them right now, I could also easily imagine them as being the kind of couple that would break up and get back together at least twice a month. Perhaps this is just what makes this pairing so appealing to me in the first place, though: that fine line between attraction and a sense of danger. Then there's also the fact that, despite how Idate is a violent psychopath, I still, for whatever reason, imagine that he would be a very... doting boyfriend (for a lack of better word). And Tatsumiya, despite her gentleness and motherly wisdom, would still be strong enough to keep him in line.
Besides, I think that it's long since been established that Tatsumiya is the ultimate waifu.
Tatsumiya is love.
Tatsumiya is life.
