Hmm, where to start…
I’m an avid reader, and I’d like to think of myself as an adequate writer, but I’m a insecure twit, so my reluctance to post is because of my asinine qualms of unconstructive criticism. That, and I'm just a really lazy person... *sigh* In the future, I will post something, so read it if you feel that it seems interesting… I do take gratification in writing, but it’s usually original works; I actually haven’t tried my hand at fanfics.
Now, a bit about myself.
I am a cynical, sardonic, and somewhat uncaring realist (borderline pessimist, but I'm not quite there yet). I enjoy reading a story as dark as my personality; if it has the right type of humor, I'm all for it. I just can't turn away from a good work of comedy, but aside from that, I can be a bit picky in my reading selection.
I love a good fanfic, but I don't do particularly well with Self-Inserts and OCs–just not my cup of tea. There are exceptions, such as SilverQueen's positively marvelous work with DoS (it's truly a work of art). Though, that's pretty much it. Suspense, Action/Adventure, Humor, Tragedy, Horror, and Angst are my main focuses; I read Romance, but the plot needs something besides Drama, lest any interest I once held starts to flee. I don't have much taste for Drama, unless Angst (or anything else especially interesting) is added to zest up the plot.
I just hate a romantic sob story of two people overcoming the obstacles of life as they realize how deeply they love each oth–boring (and cliché). Chop someone's head off, kill somebody's mother, bring in a slew of murders surrounding the neighborhood, break them up in the worst way possible, have some assassin controlling evil dude kidnap the girl, make a character incredibly OOC for the sake of it– something. Or don't. *shrug* It's your story, I probably just won't read it, and that doesn't affect you at all. I'm just stating my preferences here.
My prime fandom is Manga/Anime; Naruto, Dragon Ball Z, Death Note, and copious others I have granted my free time to. I am, as one might say, a ‘super geek’, but I am awfully proud of that, thank you much.
I also enjoy my fair share of dark humor, JtHM being one of my absolute favorite comics.
“Ugh, great. What's the point in setting the alarm if I'm going to wake up before it goes off? What a total waste. Now I've gotta shut it off but I don't feel like moving. But if I don't shut it off it will just keep ringing and ringing. *sigh* It makes me tired just thinking about the whole thing. Some mornings are such a drag...”
“Learn to treasure your life because unfortunately, it can be taken away from you at any time.”
"We think we are so great in our protests... but we just become the bitter offspring of what we oppose. We become prisoners in our own cages. We begin to speak in badly constructed melodramatic prose! OH, RAGING HORROR!! Make this stop!!"
"The violent crimes? All perfectly natural in a society whose advances are limited to its technology. The basic behavior of the modern human is hardly different from that of its primitive ancestors. The only noticeable changes are trends. Whether in a suit, or in a loincloth, people are ignorant little thorns, cutting into one another."
"Know that, for all its troubles, the world is perfect. Flawless in its beauties and turmoils. Violence and nightmares being a natural product of humanity."
