Author has written 8 stories for Star Wars, BioShock, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Kingdom Hearts, Harry Potter, and Steven Universe.
"The Infinite Monkey Theorem states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare.
In this context, "almost surely" is a mathematical term with a precise meaning, and the "monkey" is not an actual monkey, but a metaphor for an abstract device that produces a random sequence of letters and symbols ad infinitum. The relevance of the theory is questionable—the probability of a monkey exactly typing a complete work such as Shakespeare's Hamlet is so tiny that the chance of it occurring during a period of time even a hundred thousand orders of magnitude longer than the age of the universe is extremely low (but not zero).
Variants of the theorem include multiple and even infinitely many typists, and the target text varies between an entire library and a single sentence. The history of these statements can be traced back to Aristotle's On Generation and Corruption and Cicero's De natura deorum, through Blaise Pascal and Jonathan Swift, and finally to modern statements with their iconic typewriters. In the early 20th century, Émile Borel and Arthur Eddington used the theorem to illustrate the timescales implicit in the foundations of statistical mechanics."
I'll be honest. I'm mediocre at best. I'm a 'Fly-By-The-Seat-Of-My-Pants' storyteller. I think that I have the creative talent to be good, but find myself too lazy to put too much work into outlining and preparing for it, instead simply going for it and writing myself into several corners. As a result, some of my works might get repetitive, but under that, for each one, I believe, and know, that there is a genuine story to be told, and relateable, powerful characters. If you disagree, why the hell are you reading this?
If you find my OC driven, repetitive, and occasionally forced stories lacking, I'll understand. But if you were to call them pathetic, worthless, wastes of my time? I'd disagree with you, and I'm certain that some of those who have positively reviewed me, or favorited me or one of my stories would too, as they are serving to entertain people, and improve my own ability as a writer.
I don't do the best job of selling myself, but you have to admit, that tirade/diatribe sounded... or... looked... that tirade/diatribe seemed confident when you read it.
Present Day Me: Wow, I wrote this tirade/diatribe/rant more than two years ago. This is really crazy. That means I've been reading and writing FanFictions for quite a while. Sadly, I haven't found many that I truly enjoyed, even some of the ones in my favorites are simply there for ease of use because I found it and was vaguely interested, but didn't want to decide if I really liked it at that time.
Even sadder, the only non-one-shot Fics I've completed, aside from a Bioshock one that I used to be proud of, I deleted out of shame/a desire to make it better on round two. That one's Somebody's Nobody, which is currently on hiatus while I wait for more inspiration. I'd like nothing more than to buckle down and devote most of my time to writing (FanFics or regular old original fictions) but I have actual life, and the greatest burden of all... friends. So I'll try to focus more on this, but school, people, and calamities such as running out of milk may distract me. Please be patient with me, and I'll try to provide worthwhile reading material.
I chose this name for myself for two reasons. The first being that the infinite monkey theorem is a hilarious mental image for my inner writer. Also, I like to think of it as a goal, almost. Like I'll put out enough bad/mediocre stories at one point or another that I can squeeze a real gem out of my mind, and share it with the world.
Currently enrolled in Wouldn'tYouLikeToKnow Highschool, and I'm a Junior. No job, just a lot of stupid ideas, a tendency to procrastinate, and some higher level classes.
Quick Cheat Sheet:
Too many writers confuse their homophones, and phrases, and it drives me crazy how often it happens, along with simple mistakes as to which 'your' or 'its' to use, or completely replacing one word with another. So, quick little review.
Vain: The one that is 'in vain,' or someone being into themselves.
Vein: The fleshy things in you that help move the blood about.
Defiantly: In a defiant or rebellious manner.
Definitely: Certain, sure, or a word used in the affirmative in place of 'yes.'
Your: Possessive version. This is yours, your game is over there.
You're: Contraction of You are. That's it. That is ALL THAT THIS CAN MEAN. Nothing else.
Its: Possesive. Its scream was haunting, you should have seen the movie, its score was amazing.
It's: It is. Again, contraction, can only be this.
NOTE: Its' is NOT A THING. DOES NOT EXIST.
Their: Possessive. This is their lamp.
They're: ANOTHER CONTRACTION. Can only mean THEY ARE.
There: Location. It is over there, I saw what you are looking for over there.
For All Intents and Purposes: This is correct. It means, basically, any way you slice it, it's this way.
For All Intensive Purposes: NOT a thing. This would mean for all concentrated purposes. Doesn't make sense in most contexts.
Foreword: A note that comes beforehand, such as an author's note, or note by the editor.
Forward: The direction straight ahead.
Any other common errors I'll put up here, to make me feel better about myself, obviously. Let me know if there's one that bugs you that I've yet to cover.
Bolded Text=Actively Updating
I am a bad finisher of stories, and get distracted easily. Be forewarned before you begin reading... My interests are fluid, and so are my focuses, though I'll try to keep a tight leash on myself for the projects I've promised my time for.
The Mudblood Monster: I'm currently pouring most of my time into this Harry Potter fiction that I want to make good progress on before beginning the release, but whatevs. Which you can, by the way, submit OCs for, which may make it into the story, in my Harry Potter OC Story Search thingamajig down below, or PM them to me. (The rules are in the Harry Potter OC Story Search thingamajig)
Somebody's Nobody: Will be on hiatus for the foreseeable future. Sorry to those who enjoy it.
Slave: my first ever story on here, I think. I want to revamp it, but can't find the time, so I'll maybe do it later...? I'll try, but I'm easily distracted by new story ideas.
A Little Girl: samesies as for Slave. I really want to update it, and it's one of my first fanfics posted. Don't have much time, n'all.
The Survivor in Maria: Deleted the story until I feel comfortable reposting it. It was, admittedly, awful, and needs a lot of reworking before any type of posting begins anew.
Bloodstone: Steven Universe Fic. About a partial Gem who is far less complete than Steven, and his revival, of sorts. Leaving it vague so as not to box myself in. But it's pretty good so far, and I've got somewhere between 12,000 and 13,000 words of actual story.
Mealing and Dealing: I've actually gotten a compliment on this one, despite the lack of reviewers. I'm kind of proud of it, even if it seems a little rushed to my eyes. It's a Percy Jackson one-shot from my first year on the site.
I have a pretty good story idea (in my opinion) for each of the following franchises, but I don't want to tip my hand, or disappoint all three of you who care by saying they're a definite thing.
DBZ: Unnamed, as of yet. About an alternate universe, in which, rather than slaughter all of the Saiyans, Frieza kills the Elites only, and tries to use the remaining ones as a weapon against his brother, Cooler's army. Mainly follows a Saiyan Warrior of my own creation, Gin, but will try to hit all the milestones in new/unexpected ways. Assuming I manage to stop juggling multiple projects and finish my damn stories.
MLaaTR: Honestly, I know. This series is way over. I still like it, and I'm working on a Fic. About a GRRU created by the government to act in XJ-9's stead, should the need arise, and his premature awakening.
SAO: No real info or direction for this one yet. I just really want to do one.
Idea I just now thought of:
Hey guys! Maybe one of the two of you who actually took the time to read this could submit a story idea, if you want, and I'll give it the old college try, if it strikes my fancy! Looking at all of the half-done and just-starting projects I have, however, it'd likely be best if they were more geared towards being a One-shot or a short story. Drop me a PM if you have an idea you want done, and no time to do it, and I'll take a look-see!
Copy and Paste this into your Profile, and I'll find you. I'll hunt you down, and scream at you, because copying and pasting the sentiments of others into something almost nobody reads won't help anyone, change any minds, or gain you any respect. Just STOP. Please.
