I have a joint fanfic account with Ginneke, which can be found here. Any works we collaborate on will be posted there.
You can find me as heleentje24 on AIM or heleentje on tumblr, where I will lurk most of the time, occasionally reblog things and only once in a while talk about something that's mildly interesting. Don't be afraid, though. I don't bite.
I have been writing for quite some time now, but I started writing very intensively about ten years ago. All my original stories are written in my mother tongue and won't be published anywhere on the internet. I prefer writing fanfiction in English however, as to make a clear distinction between my original work and fanfiction.
I'm not a regular writer. During holidays I write a lot, but most of my plot bunnies tend to stay in my head. That said, writing is something very therapeutic for me, so most of my stories will include elements or philosophies that resemble my own (this is very obvious in 'Ataraxia' and 'Inevitable')
I respect writers who manage to characterize characters accurately, because it's something I consider very important, even though I don't always manage to pull it off. Good spelling and grammar are also a must. Typos are something I am willing to ignore, as I make them myself too. I don't review often, and definitely not according to a set pattern, just when I feel like it. I therefore don't ask people to review my stories, as that would be plain hypocritical. More about that at the end of this profile.
Note: My Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's fics will only take canon into account (I define canon as the information that has been given in the actual episodes, and nothing else). While I am for the most part aware of the extra information the writers gave on their twitters and through other communication channels, for various reasons I choose not to use that information. Therefore, if you see something in my stories that goes against what the writers said outside the show, odds are that I'm perfectly aware of it, but am choosing to ignore it. If you want to know my reasons and aren't afraid of teal deer, feel free to PM me, but I would appreciate it if you didn't point it out in a review.
Tom: One-shot. I'd say it's the first fic ever written about Merope, but if I'm wrong, correct me. I wrote it because I had to write it. After reading HBP, I was so shocked, and so sad, I just had to. I don't really care about getting reviews for this one, it was enough for me to write it.
The Silver Lining: My tribute to those who died in Deathly Hallows
Inevitable: Tribute to Fred & George, combined with some of my own reflections
Momentum: My first GX fic, and my second 50-sentences fic (the first one is about an original character of mine, so you won't see it here). I still have my doubts, but overall I'm pretty happy about it
Ataraxia: My second GX fic, logically. It was something that turned out to be very therapeutic to write. For some reason, Juudai is the easiest character for me to write.
Badlands: Based on the last scene of Yu-Gi-Oh GX, and also my way to say goodbye to the series. The last scene was just too damn hilarious to not do something with it. Badlands and Crossroads share the same universe. More specifically, the events of Badlands take place the day before the start of Crossroads.
And maybe an explanation for the USA setting is in order: While watching that illustrous final scene of GX, a light started burning somewhere around the area of my geographical knowledge. More specifically, something told me that the landscape type wasn't common in Japan. I showed the scene to my dad, who's better at geography than me, and he said 'Badlands'. Therefore, Badlands takes place in South-Dakota.
Crossroads: Despite having told myself not to do so, I'm starting a multi-chaptered fic. Because the plotbunnies just didn't want to leave me alone. Finished as of 07/18/08. I'm glad, and sad at the same time.
Shatter: Because the Gem Beasts are sorely underappreciated, and still completely awesome characters. Finished as of 12/31/09 (okay, actually it was already past midnight for me at the time, so 01/01/10)
Imaginary: Birthday fic for Olynthus. Might or might not be continued in the near future (i.e. once I figure out how to format a continuation)
Prism: Like Momentum, but for Johan this time. That's really all there is to it.
Importance: Started out as a character study for Johan, but Juudai and Yubel proved that they couldn't stay away.
Child's Play: I've had people asking me what happens afterwards, so I'm gonna say it here: if you want to know what happens next, watch the series. This story was written to be compatible with Yu-Gi-Oh GX as a whole and is, in fact, part of my headcanon. Third in the Proverbial 'verse.
Reunion: The Park of Seven Hours, known locally as Parc de Sept Heures, is located in the town of Spa in Belgium, thereby proving that I am a complete and utter dork.
To Cope: Because there needs to be more past!JuudaixYubel fic. Also a very cathartic fic to write. The original title was 'Negotiation', referring to the Five Stages of Grief. If you negotiate to give up everything for someone else, and the deal goes through, do you think that other person would be happy about it? Second in the Proverbial 'verse (and the odd one out)
So Far, So Good: Further proof that I am incapable of not writing for this fandom. Partially based on my philosophy classes and long discussions with a few people (you know who you are!) Chronologically fourth in the Proverbial 'verse. KyoXSakiFan made an amazing AMV for it which can be found. I can't tell you how honored I feel, thanks so much!
Also check out these amazing pieces of fanart, (New York), (Juudai and Betty) and (Potosí)!
Throw the Dog a Bone: Another birthday fic for Olynthus (time sure flies), and my first shot at 5Ds. I think I may return to the fandom after SFSG.
For a Thousand Children: Spawned from a few late-night conversations with Higuchimon and a lack of sleep. Because we know that Juudai is really sorry, but if someone murdered everyone you loved and then comes back, saying 'But I've changed now!'... What would you do?
Forbidden Fruit: The orange story that was mentioned in To Cope and So Far, So Good several times. Chronologically first in the Proverbial 'verse.
On a sidenote:
Though I like receiving reviews, they're not that important to me, therefore, I won't beg for them. If you feel like you really want to review, by all means, go ahead, but I'd like to ask to give me some constructive criticism, 'cause I know I can definitely improve a lot. Though it's nice to get reviews that say 'great', or 'nice', it doesn't give me any real satisfaction. Please give me your honest opinion.
I will try to reply to any and all reviews I get, though if I don't, it probably means I got lazy and started procrastinating again. If you're reviewing anonymously and want a reply, please leave me with some way to contact you. Flames are a-okay but will probably be laughed at.
