Author has written 8 stories for Young Justice.
Hi everyone! I'm Iron Woobie. I'm relatively new to FanFiction, but the online community has made me feel at home, so I'm here to stay. Here on my profile page, I will have a brief introduction, and at the bottom I will give some more information about the stories that I'm writing. My associated username on Archive of Our Own (AO3) is CallMeIronWoobie.
The username? Google it. It basically sums up my entire writing genre. I like writing Hurt/Comfort, Suspense/Mystery, Friendship, and Family stories because I can generally get the most mileage out of them. If I include any Romance, it's (almost always) just to boost the main plot. (I'm not really into all that lovey-dovey kissy stuff, if you catch my drift. I like action and epic bromances best.) Currently, my main chapters have been averaging around 10K or 11K words apiece (though I'm now pushing 15K and 16K, yikes!), but that can vary upwards or downwards depending on the story's plot.
Above all, all of my stories will work from CANON. If it's not realistic and/or doesn't match up with the source material (TV shows, comics, books, etc.), then I won't dare to write it. Why? Because I figure that the reason we're in these fandoms is because we like the source material the way the authors wrote it in the first place. I don't think I have the right to mess with that too much. That's why none of my stories will be AU, and VERY RARELY would I ever try a crossover, unless it made sense in canon.
So which fandoms do I love? Young Justice, Justice League, Avengers, Teen Titans, Avatar: The Last Airbender... You know what? Basically anything that involves superheroes, superpowers or awesome skills, teens who save the world, or teams that save the world. (You can guess why that makes Young Justice my favorite show of all time.)
And as for me, I'm a 19-year-old college undergrad somewhere in the United States, doing a joint major in East Asian Studies and Government, with a minor in English and a language citation in Mandarin Chinese. My current focus is working on the Outlier series, but I occasionally make one-shots or mini-series to get those creative juices flowing. I try not to set goals for finishing Outlier because I get burned out that way (it's been two years since I started as a result... yikes!), and then I end up breaking promises to "update soon!" and then there's a 10 month hiatus or something, and... nobody likes that! So the story-writing goes at it's own pace.
Most of all, I love hearing feedback of all kinds from readers -- the more specific, the better! Anything you like/dislike, are confused about, want to know more about, have questions about, have predictions about, or even if you notice a typo or a factual inaccuracy, I welcome it all! Feel free to leave a review or even shoot me a PM, I try to respond to all messages as long as they're not made from a Guest account (then I can't reply to you!)
Below is the breakdown of my stories and how they align/match up with one another. Hope you enjoy!

Again, I cannot stress how much I appreciate it if you leave reviews! I read them all, and they give me the inspiration I need to keep writing! I welcome constructive criticism and value accuracy, so if you see mistakes, feel free to let me know!
