Author has written 6 stories for Hunger Games, and Avatar.
Hello readers! You already know the first letter of my first and middle name, but I feel its only fair to tell a bit about myself. I started writing fanfiction because I could not stop thinking of the hunger games, and this way I can let my imagination out. Before starting to writing fanfiction, I was hesitant for a while. Eventuially curiosity got the best of me and, here we are. It should be noted that while I enjoy writing hunger games Fan-fictions, I intend to write fan-fictions for other stories and some historical events.
Stories: My stories are only sometimes going to be canon with the original books, but will be partially cannon with each other. Also, my stories won't always end like the real one, so 'changing history' may happen sometimes. If I'm torn on how to end a story, expect one story to have multiple spinoff sequels or one-shots with different endings.
What I like in a story:
Smug and Arrogant utopia race gets taken down a peg or thousand (examples: Navi get blown up by rocket launchers, Merkwood Elves have their forest burnt to the ground by dwarves or orks or Smaug, aliens who try to put humanity on trial are wiped out by resistance/outed as hypocrites and sent away in shame, etc.)
Grey and grey morality (meaning: both sides are shown to be both noble at some times and cruel at others, or the soldiers on the "bad" side are shown to live and laugh and love during their spare time)
Accurate or nuanced portrayal of historical figures that show that the author did his research
Heroes who follow a moral code on right and wrong (I can accept if they are flawed, but not if they don't work on or at least feel bad about their flaws)
The vestigial empire manages to not only reverse its decline but restore itself to former glory. Even better if the empire already fell but the remnants manage to resurrect it successfully
Heroes reproduce in the epilogue (or "babies ever after")
Well developed and complex characters that think like people in real life would
courage in the face of cruel opposition
order vs chaos (I more often than not root for order)
explorers blazing the trail through untamed wilderness/ hoards of non-humans with nothing but courage, bravado, and determination
war being treated as (at worst) a necessary evil and (at best) a small price to pay for freedom/homeland defense [I can tolerate a little glorifying or "war is hell" if the work shows BOTH the positive and negative affects/outcome of war]
What I dislike in a story:
Any story where characters are Out Of Character without reason or explanation
Any story that treats morality in and of itself as a bad thing
Stories that expect us to root for a designated protagonist who does horrible things, never feels guilty, and gets away scot free to have a happy ending (examples: a protagonist who sleeps with his neighbors wife just because his neighbor has different views from him, a person who gets a kick out of torturing the enemy henchmen, someone willing to murder civilians or henchmen who surrender/beg for mercy)
Stories where a smug and arrogant utopia race is only around to remind humanity (or the story's equivalent of humanity) how superior they are
Stories where an advanced alien power puts humanity on trial with the threat of extinction or containment if found guilty. Especially when the alien judge's come off as spouting an alien version of white-mans-burden (note: I only dislike these stories when the aliens conducting the trait are shown as justified or when they get away with it. I love stories where the humans fight back and drive out/conquer the galactic federation)
Stories about someone "going native" (reason:these stories have been done way too often, and it is a bit racist to show a white man who lived with the tribe for a few months becoming a better warrior than the tribesmen who have lived there their whole lives.)
Stories that paint indigenous people as noble savages (when in fact indigenous people often had a diverse range of cultures, many of which were just as technologically advanced in some areas [the cities of the Mayans and Aztecs were well planned, some tribes had both land ownership and written language, and north american tribes did start to use guns and horses when they got them)
Stories that paint nuanced or outright heroic historic figures as evil without doing research. Especially if it is to make the figure the face of a policy they would not in real life have agreed with (examples: Armstrong Custer [considered the natives worthy opponents, Erwin Rommel [supported the July 20th plot, Thomas Edison [was a brilliant inventor who refused to make things with the intent of killing people, Walt Disney [a very non racist person who trusted many jewish employees with important positions, General MacArthur [a strategic genius who knew the bad effect communism would have on people living under it, Christopher Columbus [a man who is blamed for the atrocities of his successors, the Founding Fathers[yes they owned slaves;they also freed their slaves and favored a form of abolition])
Stories that paint outright evil historical figures as heroic or simply anti-heroes just to decry the cause those heroes oppose (examples: Che Guevara [a mass murderer who killed innocents in La Cabanas, Ho Minh Chi [a genocidal mass murderer who used terror and reeducation camps to get rid of democracy supporters])
Stories that try to paint Communism as a good thing (if an ideology results in the murder of 100 million people, then it doesn't work. No ifs, ands, or buts)
Favorite Canon books:
Hunger Games Trilogy
Lord of the Rings
Hunger Games fanfictions I dislike
While I like Hunger Games fanfictions, there are some I do not like. Suffice it to say, there can be exceptions to some of there rules.
"Games Continue" fics
-I dislike these because they are often only loosely based in the plot, if at all
-None of the characters in the series are homosexual, so casting them as such will involve HUGE character derailment if not outright throwing out the character and replacing him/her with a clone. If there is one thing I dislike, it is characters being OOC without reason/explanation.
-A character is made up of the experiences they underwent, and that means placing them in another world will throw that off kilter.
-This is the main reason I can't reat Finnick/Katniss fanfictions; one of the few things I loathe more than unexplained OOC is when a character in his late twenties or early thirties is paired with a teenager. This applies to any story where the age difference between the couple is more than six years.
Thank you for any and all support shown to my literary endeavors. In the event that you really enjoy my work, feel free to comment or send a PM, I promise I don't bite. I welcome both compliments and constructive criticisms, and suggestions are also welcomed. Though I can't make any promises.
