Author has written 3 stories for Inuyasha, and Naruto.
Hobbies: Not so many specific hobbies anymore. I draw from time to time, but I'm not as good as I used to be, due to lack of practice, which I really regret. In addition, even though I always have stories and theories about my favorite shows and manga floating around in my head, I don't have the drive to write anything (I blame college English classes, and all the unnecessary essays none of the students really care about, but are forced to do.
I started getting into the whole fanfiction scene right as I started watching InuYasha, and let the show gradually take over my life (you'll see a number of IY fanfictions under my favorites). Unfortunately, I had a lot of spare time back then, but not enough experience writing to really know what I was doing (so let me apologize right now for any...unfortunate... spawns of my obsessions). I really don't enjoy two of my stories, find that one is unnecessary, and one is fine, but would have been much better had I written them recently.
I really want to say that I'll re-do them eventually, but I'm not sure if that'll be so. In any case, I haven't touched or edited any of my stories from their original state, so whether my opinion of them is approving or not, I hope someone out there will enjoy them.
I always come back every now and then and surf through some fanfiction. This is generally what I like to see:
1.) Good grammar: basically, know the difference between your/you're and their/they're/there. It's really not that complicated, and it's such a shame to see a perfectly good story be ruined by common grammatical errors. I might sound like I'm being a stickler for this, but every story, so matter how simple or complex the plot line may be, always look somuch better when errors are kept to an absolute minimum.
2.) No OOCness: I find that I end up not enjoying many stories where the characters stray from their original personality, such as when Sasuke (Naruto), usually cold because of his past, all of a sudden develops a happy-go-lucky personality out of the clear blue sky. It just makes the story very hard to really believe (for me anyway), thus causing me to eventually (if not immediately) lose interest.
3.) Development: True development. Not just "one-second-I-hate-you-but-now-I-love-you."
4.) Author's notes: Either at the beginning or the end of a chapter (or both, even!) but neverthe middle. It's very distracting and can ruin a perfectly good scene in the story.
5.) Time Travel: I HAVE NO IDEA. No rhyme or reason to this. I love time travel fanfics. And futurefics.
6.) Holiday Season: ...again, I have no idea. Winter is my favorite season, and Christmas is my favorite holiday. But why I find it completely sensible for any and every character to celebrate the holiday season sure beats the heck outta me.
Again, these are just my preferences. Please don't be insulted if you do any of the above! For example, some people don't mind OOC, and enjoy it!
