Author has written 7 stories for Samurai Champloo, and Transformers/Beast Wars.
I spend a third of my life without sunshine, in a cubicle, oppressed by 7' ceilings and overwhelmed by wiring harness schematics. And, I consider that a reprieve from housework and parenting. Writing is my sanity's last line of defense.
Nah, I'm just kidding... I'm really a superhero just posing as a numb-to-life CAD jockey. I'm a svelte size 4. I wear a white tube top and my underwear on the outside of ludicrously skinny jeans. I have a Long John Silver's cardboard hat that I spray-painted white and a cape made out of two body pillow cases, taped together with shiny duct tape. I AM IVORY BANGLE!!
I write fan fiction to get better at writing so I can hopefully work on my own book. If you really do enjoy my writing, please let me know what I'm doing right. If there's something I can improve on, I want to know that too.
My favorite character to write is Arcee. Not just because she's the only femme Autobot (even though when you write a lot of romance, that really narrows down your options), but because they put so much back story into her on the show.
My favorite character overall? Probably Wheeljack. I liked him in the old G1 cartoon. I love him in Prime, but he's a b*tch to keep in character when writing. Ratchet's a close second. I've got a bit of a soft spot for the smart guys. :D
Least favorite character to write - any Decepticon. :( I just suck at writing bad guys. Period.
Least favorite character overall? ... Don't lynch me, but it's probably Optimus. In G1 he joked around a little and had some personality. Not in Prime. In the 3rd season, they even took away the chance he might lose to Megatron. Boring. But hey, it makes him easy to write. Optimus and Elita 1 fics usually just make me cringe. It's like Cyclops and Jean Gray in the X-men. OMG! Who cares?! Yay, they're super-awesome, super-perfect, super-good! Go plan a wedding or something. I'll be over here playing with all these other cool characters that I CAN'T predict what is going to happen next with. THAT'S entertainment!
The third season ... wow. It started out strong, then rapidly began sucking a break-neck speeds. It was like no one told the writers there were only going to be half as many episode in this season until they were halfway through, then they were like "Well, crap ... What are we supposed to do with all this character development and the Predacons?" Answer: Ignore it and kill them. Seriously, you crushed Ultra Magnus' hand for a one-liner? You built up the bad guys then you made them all look like total boobs. What happened to Starscream's treacherous lust for power? Knockout ... don't even get me started on Knockout. It makes me sad and a little queasy. Does Megatron ever fight anymore, or is he just riding on reputation? He beat Predaking with an airlock. Really? In a series that's supposed to be about giant fighting robots, I felt like in the episodes leading up to the last one I wasn't getting my giant fighting robot quota met. :(
