I'm an academic and a nerd, but I will be the first to tell you that I live under a cultural rock. I don't really get very deep into pop culture. I'm not familiar with the latest bands and songs, or the newest movies. I haven't played that new video game, or watched that cult-classic movie. Please don't let this lack of culture turn you away, though. I hope you will find my writings to be more than satisfactory.
I do not own or claim to own any of the works that I write fanfiction for. I simply take inspiration from them, and shape my writing using them. Please excuse the sporadic updates, but inspiration seems to be a premium for me. Between school, social activity (I know, shocking!), and non-writing leisure activities like Anime, video-gaming or more recently, one of my friend's many home-grown tabletop RPGs, I find it amazing that I write as much as I do. Also, I realize that I occasionally over-rely on the original storyline of the work I write for, most glaringly obvious in the Fire Emblem fanfiction I write. My 'technique' for writing there typically revolves around playing the game and writing as I do, so there will be some glaring similarities between canon and my fanon. I hope that I make up for it with my (hopefully) unique writing style and gradual deviations from the familiar plotline.
And if you read my work and don't like it, don't review it just to leave a hate comment. I'm not sure what the official stance is on those, but I know my stance: I don't like it, and I try not to do it. While I find any sort of constructive criticism to be helpful, outright or thinly-veiled bashing of my work will not be tolerated. It's not that I refuse to hear any opinion that isn't my own. Hell, I love a good argument. But when it's just blatant bashing of my work, which I put my heart and soul into, then there's really nothing to argue about. That said, if you want to leave a comment with criticism in it, please do it on an actual account so I may properly respond to you. If it's a guest review posting all bad stuff, I'm just going to delete it. End of story. I've done it before, and I'll keep doing it.
I have a couple of stories up and running right now, so in addition to what you typically look at, please read, review, and recommend:
Please please PLEASE review my works. I crave my readers' opinions. Like I said, I put my heart and soul into the work, but I feel like that means nothing if I don't get a couple words back telling me what was great and what could be better.
I'm always playing video games, watching anime, and getting ideas for new fanfictions, so make sure you keep your eyes open for new fics from me! I am also a willing Beta Reader! Check out my BR profile, and consider sending me your stories!
Also, I'm always looking for new anime to watch. I'm slowly building a list of Anime that I need to watch, and I'm trying to whittle it down. I'm into sci-fi stuff and high fantasy. I also watched and enjoyed Sailor Moon and Tokyo Mew Mew. If you recently watched a really good one and want to share it, or simply want to compare lists, PM me.
The eagle born to those who fight to help the ones they love
empowers those with will to fight from its perch up above.
From God above they take their strength, and to God above they pray
that their will to fight will help them live to fight another day.
But win or lose, live or die, succeed or fail, they know
that Heaven is the resting place of their eternal souls.
And at his gates, Saint Peter asks, "Who seeks to join the light?"
The reply shall be "A warrior who would risk Hell to rejoin the fight!"
First off, thanks to all of my followers, reviewers, and readers for the encouraging words and support. I basically live off of the praise of my audience. It means that I'm doing well, and that I can continue to just generally better myself.
Every now and then, I look back on my first project, Swarm Lord, and I can't help but think about how far I've come. I started TSL at the start of my sophomore year of high school, and now I'm a college student. So much has changed, but there's also so many things that have remained the same.
I've gotten better, expanded my horizons a bit, and grown as a writer and a person. Looking back, my first submission to this site was, as I outright stated at one point, "A fanfic of a fanfic." But now, that story has started coming into its own, despite the inconsistent publishing schedule. Every now and then, I look at it, and I want to take it down re-do it, and repost it.
Then, I take a step back, and stop myself. It's a record of my growth. And I'm going to keep growing. And it's all thanks to you, my audience, and your continued praise. That's one of the best feelings I've had the pleasure of experiencing: praise for something I put my heart and soul into.
