Wuzzup peoples?? It is I, the one and only, KATIEROSEFUN!!!
A quick note, before, however...there's this forum, that I made if you guys are Star Wars: The Clone Wars fans, where you can be a Jedi Padawan of a sort and get an experience of what it feels like:

MusicKeeper's Forum--Doctor Who. Did you ever wonder what you'd be like as the Doctor's companion? (There are multiple companions.) You are welcome to find out!
I am also on T W I T T E R [I have to spell it out like this because FanFiction doesn't want me to write it in for some reason]--
Follow me at @katierosefun for some weirder things about me, some random fangirling moments, and maybe some useful announcements.
I'm an aspiring writer just like everyone else on this website. I LOVE LOVE LOVE to write, and I dream on doing something big with my writing. I am currently Beta'ing a story by Loveanisoka called 'Path to the Dark Side' and it'd be awesome if you checked that story out! It's an interesting story plot and I'm sure that Ahsoka fans would love this story!
And I just thought that I should write this for people to know--FOR ALL OF THE FRIENDS THAT I HAD MADE HERE, THANK YOU! YOU GUYS ARE THE REASON WHY I STILL SMILE WHEN I'M ABOUT TO GO TO SCHOOL, OR WAKE UP IN THE MORNING. YOU GUYS ARE THE REASON WHY I DON'T FEEL UTTERLY ALONE WHEN I WALK IN THE HALLS OF MY SCHOOL AND YOU GUYS ARE THE REASON WHY I RUN HOME WITH A SMILE ON MY FACE AND YOU GUYS ARE THE REASON WHY I DIDN'T KILL MYSELF! I JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT 'CAUSE I REALIZED THAT I HAVE SO MANY FRIENDS HERE! :) THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH! *kisses and hugs*
I attend public school and I'm in eighth grade, going onto high school in September. Being a freshman soon, oh boy.
Books--I am not ashamed to say that I simply adore the Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Secret, and other AWESOMETSTEAFUL book series!!! :) As for the word AWESOMETASTEAFUL, it is a word from the Flower Power book series, which is about four 5th grade girls and the series is a tad bit childish for me now, but I read it again from time to time because I'm just sentimental that way.
Story Behind my Username--If you know me well enough, you would know that my username does NOT resemble my real name in any way. On the dull, boring day of November 20th, 2012, my friend urged me to make a FanFiction account in the school library. [We were rather sneaky about it, mind you--the librarian would have our heads if she found out that we were doing something on the computer that wasn't related to school. XD] I was wondering what to have as a username--I mean, I want this username to be something special, because if I'm going to be posting some of my stupid stories onto this site, I might as well have a half-decent pseudonym, right?
I finally settled on katierosefun after a character in a book series I absolutely adored at the time--the Flower Power book series by Lauren Myracle. That book series is a bit childish for me now, since I'm in eighth grade and those books revolve around fifth grade girls, but there was this one character that earned a special place in my heart and that character is named Katie Rose. (Ta-da!)
I loved Katie Rose out of all of the main characters of the book--she was a socially awkward girl who hid behind her yellow video camera, and though she's too proud to admit it, she's lonely. She doesn't have many friends at first--the only friend she does have is this boy, but when you're in fifth grade, you don't really want a guy as your best friend all the time, right? I found it really strange why Katie Rose didn't have any friends in the beginning of the book--she was incredibly spunky, a tad dramatic, but she's got this really happy-go-lucky, perky sort of attitude that made me love her to death. Plus, she's a dork/nerd, like me!!! AND SHE'S PROUD OF IT!!! HA!!!
So, there we go--my username was created and I began to write with content for this site.
Music--To be honest, I have a ton of music in my iPod and a ton of more songs that I MUST download. My main artist that I listen to is probably Taylor Swift--I've been listening to her music since fifth grade and I totally fell in love with her. First song I ever listened to her was 'Mean', and I couldn't stop listening to her ever since. :)
Besides Taylor, I listen to more...I'm avoiding the term 'Indie music', but I don't listen to mainstream music. One Direction is out my window--(sorry, Directioners--I do like some songs by them, though! Story of my Life and Kiss You are my favorites!!! :)) and Imagine Dragons is in! I guess you can consider them as mainstream, but in my opinion, they're not TOTALLY mainstream like some other bands. I am in love with Jason Walker, (some of his songs are BEAUTIFUL,) and I'm addicted to songs mostly written with piano and guitar...I'm not scared to admit that most of my songs are sort of...sad, but others can be rather happy.
When it DOES come to happy songs, many of them are perky--about finding love, having fun with the perfect friend, etc. The list goes on and on. I WOULD write down all of my favorite songs here, but I don't want to bore any of you all to death. Ha. XD
Movies--Okay. Now, even though I love books, I am a great admirer of awesome films. Story plots, that's what I like to look at. I have a rather wide variety of fave movies from kiddy animated movie like 'Rise of the Gaurdians' to sweet classics like 'It's a Wonderful Life'. However, I am not ashamed to say that I am totally a fan of Star Trek, but the 2009 version. (I don't mind if you say that the original version is better, but I've got a sneaking suspicion that I like the newer version better because Chris Pine is in it... :) I watched Star Trek: Into Darkness, and it is AWESOME!! Call me a dork, but I think that some films are nice to curl up with when an author or a story is giving you a hard time and you are fed up with stories and need to have a little break.
TV--I'm overly obsessed about the Clone Wars, (naturally--just look at all the stories! XD) I've been liking that show since third grade when my cousins showed it to me one night when we were all bored and our parents were out shopping with my grandmother in Florida. Sadly, the show ended around the end of my seventh grade, which was some pretty bad timing, since I was also going through a pretty rough time during that period of my life as well. :(
Besides the Clone Wars, I've moved on from Disney shows, (I've even stopped watching Austin and Ally. Daaang, I used to love that show SO MUCH, but I sort of stopped watching it after seventh grade 'cause I couldn't bring myself to watch it anymore. My old friends used to watch it with me a ton so after some stupid thing that happened, I just couldn't watch it without feeling as though someone stabbed me in the chest. But this is getting too personal and sad so let's skip that bit.)
BBC ruined my life! In a good way, though!! I'm now totally addicted to Sherlock, Doctor Who, and Merlin!!! *IT'S THE CIRCLE OF LIFE!!!*
Honest to goodness, those shows just blew my mind and my world and my already shabby social life in a snap. I've spent hours and hours laughing with the Doctor, solving crimes with Sherlock, and saving Arthur's life with Merlin. Those characters will have a special place in my heart forever. :')
Friends--I don't really know why I'm writing this subject, but okay fine, 'cause apparently there are some people who are curious about more parts of my personal life...-_- Okay, um I'm not giving away anyone else's identities, and I'm not very well liked at school.
I mean, sure, I have a couple friends, but I know that they'll just come and go. It kinda sucks. I guess most of it is my fault, since I'm a freak and everything...or at least that's what some people say about me. :( So when school starts this year, I guess I'm gonna have to play as the loner, sitting at a lunch table by herself, writing stories by herself, never touching her phone 'cause there's no one for her to call or text. I guess that's it. You guys can skip this section if you want. Prepare to go through emotions...*mind meld from Star Trek*
Ever since I was a little kid, I stuck out a lot 'cause of my race, my skills, and etc. It was awkward when people realized that I could write really well and needless to say, I was teased a couple times because they thought that I was a stupid moron. I didn't know much of the world, and I guess I could say that I had no idea what half of the slang that kids used meant. Like, in third grade, when a boy asked me to 'dump' one of my guy friends, I thought that he literally meant to give my guy friend an old-fashioned dump onto the ground. Talk about embarrassing, right? -_-
Not many people like me because I can also be pretty dangerous with my words. Sort of like the Taylor Swift of writing, huh? :/ If something bad happened to me, that person who made me upset AUTOMATICALLY shows up in my stories. I know that a couple of writers do that subconsciously and that happens to me, too. In fact, if you ever see a mean girl or boy in one of my stories, you'll see that it must be someone I modeled off of in school.
It's pretty awful, and I always regret writing like that...but it's something that I do to draw the anger out. Even some parents hate my guts and I don't blame them...you know, all that 'Mama Bear' stuff. But I never understood why adults would gossip about a young girl behind her back...I mean, it's like ME teasing a newborn child! How ridiculous and low is that?! Then again, maybe Mama and Papa bears are just trying to protect their kids from a freak like me. Who knows? Another thing about friendship that I CANNOT stand...right before friends leave you, they say 'I'm sorry' a LOT. I learned that from past experience. They say, 'I couldn't do anything about it. I'm sorry.' Riiiiight. -_- Like, you couldn't control the fact that you wanted to leave me in the dust because everyone is doing it. Uh-huh, yeah, you TOTALLY couldn't control it. I guess I can understand some of it, but why do you bother saying 'sorry' when you're about to leave? Just say 'sorry' when you first meet after fighting...say 'sorry' 'cause you felt bad of what you did. Lesson to be learned, viewers and readers of this section--Friendship and LOVE doesn't count after you say good bye.
How I Came to Be--Well, recently, one of my readers had put in this sort of section and mentioned me in it and I felt real great about it and thought, 'Hmm...let's see what benefits I have gotten by being on this awesometasteaful website...I've realized that first of all, I've gotten tons of new friends who share the same fandoms with me, (in school, I'm basically alone in my fandoms...)
I've realized that maybe my writing is a *bit* better than what other kids say about it, and I've become a better writer. But I've also realized that if one particular person hadn't forced me into joining before, then I would have never come this far and I never would have created this amount of Fan Fictions and maybe...I wouldn't even be on this Earth...as in...maybe my gravestone would be found somewhere? I don't know...but enough with this sad stuff...I DID NOT COME HERE TO WRITE DOWN SAD THINGS! *sighs*
I'll get to the point--there's this Fan Fiction user who got me into joining and this person is TheLittleStupidThingsinLife. (I may have spelled the username wrong...) but this person was really obsessive over this website and really, really wanted me to join so...I did! I admit, I was a bit cynical about it at first but as time went on, I was totally in the zone and if anything, I'm more obsessed with this website than ever. :) So...thank you.
My Tips For Writing--As a student, I'm still learning on ways how to become a better writer. I'm definitely not the best out there, (my earlier fictions always make me wince...gosh, I never knew that I was that bad! O.O) but I'm happy to give tips to anyone out there who's just beginning to write.
Tip One--Don't be harsh on yourself. Yeah, it's totally okay to make mistakes and it's totally okay to have a couple of doubts in your abilities. In fact, if you're doubting that you're a good writer, it's most likely that you are a good writer. True writers are humble. :) However, don't beat yourself up over the mistakes that you make--instead, learn from them!
Tip Two--SPACING! *winces* This was one of my problems when I started off as a writer. I never spaced out the lining in my stories and now I realize that I should have...what's so important about spacing, you might ask? It separates paragraphs! If you want your readers to read your stories, spacing is one of the most essential things to persuade them to read more. (Besides the content and concept, of course. :))
It's just easier for your readers and for yourself to read/write--some people may not automatically grasp the idea of spacing, but a clue would be that if there's ever someone new talking or if you're presenting a new idea, USE THE ENTER BUTTON AND INSERT THAT LINING, BABY! XD
Tip Three--Punctuation, Grammar, and Spelling! I CANNOT STRESS THIS ISSUE ENOUGH. Remember, there's always, always, always a period after someone's finished speaking. Don't get your 'i before e' rule mixed up. Your and you're are different things. Their, there, and they're are also different!
Your is a possesive word--example: That is your fez.
You're is a joined word of the words you and are--example: You're welcome. (You are welcome.)
Always remember your tenses, too! (This was one of my issues as a beginner...I only recently realized that I was mixing up my tenses. O.O) I may not provide much information on this particular topic, because I'm also learning, but a tip that I can share is that you should always be consistent.
For example, if you're using the past tense, use it at all times! Example--she said, he swam, it dove, etc.
Tip Four--No Mary Sues or Gary Lous. Is it a Gary Lou or a Gary Stu? I never knew. Ha, that rhymed!
Sorry, off topic.
If you're going to make an OC, (an original character,) try not to make him/her a Mary Sue/Gary Lou. What is a Mary Sue/Gary Lou, Caroline?
I may not give the best definition, so you'll have to look that up on Google on your own, but basically, a Mary Sue/Gary Lou is someone who just happens to be perfect. By perfect, I mean being better than everyone else, being attractive than everyone else, blah, blah, blah. A Mary Sue/Gary Lou can also be a character who is always having bad guys kidnap them and chase them all the time.
I guess you can call them 'playing God'...? I've read and RP'd with several Mary Sues/Gary Lous and it is not fun. Honestly, there is no such thing as perfect in real life, and it's just plain annoying to read about/RP with.
Looking back at my own OC, Cadena, I sometimes wonder if I made her a Mary Sue, (hopefully not,) but if you're going to make an OC, make sure that you point out his/her flaws. Make sure that he/her has plenty of flaws, very much like real people.
Reading FanFiction Preferences--While I read a variety of FanFictions, (humor, angst, romance, hurt/comfort...) there are a couple that I will and will not read--
My Not-Reading Reasons:
-Yaoi/Yuri. Sorry to the gay/lesbian supporters out there--I don't have anything against it, honest! I actually know/befriended a couple of people who are gay/lesbian, and I don't hate them or anything. If anything, I try to become friends with them because I don't want them to feel alone because of their sexual orientation, especially since loads of people look down on them.
However, there are a couple of stories that I've read that are yaoi...and I'll read it, but I'm still not the biggest fan of it. Some yaoi stories that I've read aren't too...I dunno, yaoi-ish? I'll be okay with some cute fluff, but to be honest, I'm a bigger fan of platonic relationships/bromances. XD
-Lemons. I'll be able to read some lemons, and I can stand some of them...however, the second things get a bit too graphic, I'll be clicking that 'x' button faster than you can blink. I'll admit that I've actually read quite a lot of lemons at one point and while some I'm okay with, (mostly with only couples I like...) but there are other lemons that are just...awkward and a bit...uncomfortable to read. x_x
-Mary Sues/Gary Lous. Sorry, not sorry, I did make it clear that I just cannot stand those stories. Playing God? Don't expect me to read it. -_-
-Gaming fandoms. Okay, maybe this is a bit unfair, seeing that I'm not as big of a gamer as I used to be, [only game I actually ever played was Minecraft] but I just find a lot of the stories rather dull to me. Maybe I'm wrong--maybe all of the FanFictions I read just aren't my style...? [Not saying that they weren't well-written...because some of the gaming stories I've read are actually rather well-written with proper grammar and punctuation and spelling and everything.] However, I'm not that obsessed. I know that some of my favorite writers will sometimes shoot me a PM asking me why I didn't bother reading one of their new stories and I'd just reply, "I'm not that interested in gaming fandoms. I'm sorry--I'm just not particularly interested in that area."
No offense to gamers or anything, but if you happen to be confused why I'm not reading one of your new stories when I usually do, it's probably because of that certain subject.
My Totally Reading Reasons:
-BROMANCE/FRIENDSHIP! I'm a total sucker for bromances and friendship fics. Brother/sister relationships, bromances, teacher/student relationships, you name it. I'm just ADDICTED. My favorite bromances are probably of Merlin and Arthur Pendragon, (GAAAAH...my FEELS...) Sherlock and John, (Sign of Three where John tells Sherlock that he's his best friend...BEST. MOMENT. EVER!!) and Obi-wan and Anakin. (I think they're about nineteen years apart, but they are just so awesome that it drives me insane.)
I'll go for some bromantic cuddling, (don't judge me,) and seeing cute brother/sister relationship moments, (like Anakin and Ahsoka,) just make me bounce off the walls. XD So, if you want me to read one of your stories, put in some nice bromance/friendship moments and I'll be reading that fic away! XD
-Injured/Sick. *smiles sheepishly* My guilty pleasure is reading sick!fics...and hurt!fics. I don't know why, but ever since I was a little kid, I always enjoyed watching my favorite characters getting badly injured or sick. O.o
I don't know why I enjoy watching/reading that sort of stuff, but I think it's because it reveals a more vulnerable side to my favorite characters...? I dunno...or maybe that's just because I like torturing them. Heh, heh, heh...
-Humor. Even though I seriously adore hurt/comfort and friendship and romance, I'm OBSESSED with humor fics. Nothing like reading about Sherlock losing the remote control and watching Elmo and Friends or Yoda singing on top of his lungs or Anakin high on cookies to fix a bad day.
Favorite Pairings--I actually have so many favorite pairings that it's impossible to write them all down, but I'll try to give you all the basic list:
Review/Flames--My view on reviews and flames are pretty black-and-white. To me, a review is either encouraging or helpful. A flame is simply a review that points out the bad things in a story without giving any tips on how the writer could improve. I've gotten a couple of reviews in which, I admit, it was rather hurtful...[and yes, I remember every single one of them. ;)]
I try not to delete any flames or bad/mean reviews [unless it was written by a guest and the language is too strong or if the 'corrections' are inaccurate] because they say that hate makes you stronger. Supposedly.
However, I just think that it's stupid to leave a flame unless the reader actually has more knowledge when it comes to writing. I know a couple of writers, [who are actually rather good, mind you] and there were several flames left for them. Guess what? Those flamers have never posted a story on FanFiction ever.
So, if you happen to be a reader who just leaves negative comments/flames without even knowing how to write a story yourself, you can all go away. Try writing something first and then come back to leave a review. Not all people are born with a natural writing talent--while some just enjoy writing stories, others might do it just to prove something. I happen to enjoy writing, [I have since I was in third grade] and I'm improving. I'm nowhere near a professional or an expert, [but I hope to be there someday] but I think every single writer, no matter how amateur he/she is, doesn't deserve a stupid flame.
You want to hate on some writer? Go to someone who actually cares.
Honestly, people--FanFiction is a place where people can write their stories on pre-made fandoms...spread ideas and thoughts and make new friends...that's the great stuff about joining a fandom and being on this website. Just the actual existence of haters just makes me sick to the stomach. :/
Loveanisoka is my big sister here!!! :) :) She introduced me to the awesomeness of Youtubing and she's real supportive and sweet to me!!! :) Love you!!
MusicKeeper and Shining in the Darkness are my twinnies!!! It's so funny--we all love and fangirl about the same things...Taylor Swift, Star Wars, Star Trek...and if you love those three things, you and I are automatically besties. :P Of course, there's other ways to become twins and besties, but in different ways...but I'll admit it--when I was younger, I thought that I had GOT to be the only Swiftie out there that constantly watched the Clone Wars and such...how naïve I was!!
TheDoctorCT-21-0408 is a sister!!! I don't know if she's older or younger than me, but she is SO FREAKING AWESOME!!! She got me obsessed with Doctor Who and Sherlock, she did. XD ajhfpdkjs My feels are now in shambles because of her...! But I love her anyways!!!
-I AM THE DOCTOR'S COMPANION. I AM THE IMPOSSIBLE GIRL. Clara Oswald and I have the same initials, (or at least, for our first and last names,)...and MusicKeeper is Amy Pond. SJ Skywalker is Sarah-Jane Smith.
One day, you'll meet the Doctor...and that is the best day ever. :')
I never realized how many stories were written with my Original Character, Cadena was put in--most of the stories were written by me, but it's so incredibly cool to me that she appeared in these other stories. Thanks for all of the great support! Luv you all!!! MWAH!!

Hi, guys! PLEASE READ THIS PLEASE READ THIS PLEASE READ THIS!!!
Have I got your attention? Good!
There's a writer here on FanFiction named CollectedYouRenderMeUseless and she's a fifteen year old girl. I don't know if some of you guys know her or not, (I personally don't know her very well,) but the one other thing I DO know about her is that she's dying.
Don't ask me how--I don't have the details, and from the looks of it, she doesn't know how, either.
However, I ask of you all to PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE show her all of the love and support that she deserves. Pray for her, send her comforting PMs, do anything that might make her smile. :)
Why, hello there!
I wasn't planning on saying anything, but I just thought that you readers should know that I've done something incredibly stupid over winter break. :/
By stupid, I mean it involves trying to take away my own life and honestly, that was probably one of the scariest situations I've ever went through. In my opinion, there's two kinds of suicidal people in the world--people who try suicide once, and realize the mistake and move on. The other kind of suicidal person is someone who just repeatedly goes on and on about suicide but it just too scared to do it.
Religion, sense, who knows what's holding them back. My main message, however, is that suicide is WRONG. It's HORRIBLE. It's not something that should be taken lightly, it's not something to joke around about, and it's definitely not something to treat as though it's a normal game, either. The thing with suicide is that it can happen to ANYONE. You can be laughing and smiling and having a decent time with your friends but you can also be hiding a really bad secret from them and POOF, your life is gone.
There's one less person walking on the face of the earth, and one more body being buried into the soil. It's awful. Words can't describe how happy I was when I found out that a bunch of my friends here heard the news and began to gather around to cheer me up. I seriously cannot thank them enough for being so supportive. :')
I would have written this sooner, but again, I just never got around doing it because firstly, I was ashamed of ever trying something so incredibly stupid, and secondly because my laptop wasn't cooperating. *rolls eyes*
Be careful with people--maybe a phrase that seems decent to you might be awful to another person. Maybe a simple act of exclusion or distrust may be okay to you, but to another person, it's a sign that he/she isn't wanted anymore. :(
Don't be so harsh on others, either. You don't really know who a person really is until you've known their life story and have been in their shoes. Don't just say, "I understand," to make them feel better...'cause that doesn't help. Instead, give them a hug, try to get their minds off of the bad things of life, cheer them up with a stupid song that they like or heck, even allow them to RANT your EAR OFF. XD
That's what my friends here did for me--they allowed me to vent and gave me SO MANY REASONS not to give up. :) It also showed me who my real friends are. :) It separated the 'friends' from the true friends and honestly, that's what I'm grateful for. So I won't ever forget them. Ever. :)
SO...that's a bit about me!!! :) (Lame way to conclude my profile, but who cares.)
Enjoy my stories and follow me to my crazy journey of writing! XD
LUV YA BUNCHES AND BUNCHES!!!
