Author has written 8 stories for Naruto, and Bloodborne.
Hello potential readers! I am Ser Serendipity. Welcome to my unnecessarily wordy profile.
Here. Before you read farther, you should read this: me and my beta's approach to fanfiction (and writing in general), brought to you by a potent mixture of exasperation and exhaustion.
Okay, that sounds kind of bad. Let us explain.
Fiction may be the only place where this is true, but logic is stupid in most cases.
People should be motivated by emotions, not logic. Characters should be larger than life in every possible way, not "realistic" people with boring, sedate personalities who have incredibly banal conversations with each other.
They should roar, not talk. They should sprint, not jog. They should leap, not jump. Their soul should show in every action they perform.
Feelings, to be blunt.
Characters should not merely be people. They should be representations, icons.
A raw piece of humanity, taken to near-insane levels that actual humans can never hope to reach.
Their battles should be battles of philosophy, just as much as they are battles of arms. Their arguments should be just as much fistfights as they are traded words.
And their bonds should be tangible; the kind of friendships and loves that a real person could never withstand, but that only makes them stronger.
Hmm. Got a little off track.
So, like we said at the beginning...
If you aim for the brain, the only thing you're going to kill is your audience.
Aim for the heart.
A little about me:
I am currently doing the whole "college" thing.
I love Naruto, Harry Potter, Fullmetal Alchemist, Dresden Files, Star Wars (like, ALL OF IT), Warhammer 40000, Stephen King, Discworld, Uzumaki, ALL the Abridging, El Goonish Shive... well, I guess I love a lot of things.
I have a deep an abiding love for ellipses, one so incredible that I often force myself to leave them out of my stories entirely, lest they be overtaken by them.
I do Fire Arts, a club at my school focused around the art of catching a stick on fire and then swinging it wildly around trying not to catch yourself on fire. Lots of fun. I prefer the Contact Staff, due to the incredible amount of improvisation is allows. Though the hair on the back of my hands will never be the same.
I have an amazing beta. Funny story: he left a review for Not Sick saying that, while he had enjoyed the fight and the shocking twist at the end of the first chapter (Spoiler: there is a shocking twist at the end of the first chapter), he was genuinely enraged at Itachi. That a big brother like that, who abuses his younger sibling for most of his life, didn't deserve to live.
I took one look at that and thought, "Oh thank god. Someone who gets it."
So now, Ekusukallybaa and I make beautiful violence together. Not Sick would be a joke without the effort of he puts in to help me turn it into something both entertaining and coherent: so if you derive any joy at all from reading it, give a hand to him. He's the one who makes it at all possible. And if you enjoy anything I have in the slightest bit, go to his profile: his story "The Brothers Namikaze" blows whatever I got right out of the water (and the rewrite he's currently working on... oh, you have no idea).
(P.S: If you can figure out what his name means, you get a cookie. Or a free question about any of my stories. Personally, I'd go for the cookie.)
Well, anyway, I hope you enjoy My Stories:
Not Sick, a "What If" fic. Here, the "What If" being "What if Itachi Uchiha wasn't sick?"
Random Thoughts and Pointless Action is exactly what it sounds like. Don't be surprised if the raw ideas you may see in there get recycled into my other stories at some point.
Obito-Sensei is based off a prompt taken from Ekusukallybaa (all hail) which caught my attention one day. At the moment, it's the lighter and softer to Not Sick, but for some reason, all I dream of is cruelty and flame, so of course the outline has taken a rather horrifying bent lately.
The Girl Who Spun Through Time details Hinata's little jaunt through time. I looked around and realized that I couldn't think of a good Hinata time-travel story, so I decided to make one.
