Author has written 4 stories for Sailor Moon, Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles, and Ranma.
I figured it would be a good time to add a little information here:
I had figured that I would never post this piece of information but based on some of the odd PMs I get from people I think I would point out that yes, I am a female. So you can now stop pestering me.
I don't think in a very orderly fashion and am often told that I am very random. It shows in that I usually plan out a story with an outline and fill in areas in the order that seems to fit for that day. It is entirely possible to for me to write Chapter 5 before 2, 3, and 4 are done.
Someone also asked me how I usually write out a chapter and how long it takes. I like chapters to be about 3 to 5 thousand words but I have written smaller and larger ones. It usually takes me 4 to 5 hours to create a chapter after I have everything planned out. I just sit down and visualize everything and try to describe it all as I see it happening in my head. The writing usually only takes about 1 to 2 hours but then comes the proof reading. Oh God is that ever a mess because I often see things in my mind faster than I can type (I type at about 115 words per minute) and things get dropped, altered, or switched around. Other times I reread a section and go, what the heck is this crap, as I can't even figure it out. So I usually waste an hour playing a video game before doing the proof reading because if I do it too soon things are still too fresh in my head and I miss too many of the mistakes. So a morning or afternoon will allow me to produce a chapter to a story.
I have two main ideas for Terminator stories and they have been bugging the heck out of me for a long time. The first is in the story, The Third Opponent, and the second is in a story, Everything Goes Wrong. I had at one point thought they could be together but they are really mutually exclusive.
The Third Opponent: This story involves is mainly centered around John and Cameron but I also include most of the other characters as it progresses. The John in this story is very smart and a good planner. I was so darn tired of the wimpy John from the show I figured I wanted someone who could really be the John Connor people should believe in. Also, it starts from the very beginning and quickly John runs into another opponent in the mess that is his life.
Everything Goes Wrong: Starts right at the car bomb explodes however we have a Cameron who is very mangled and torn up in the blast. Also, John decides to take off on his own in a quest to repair his friend. I'm going to turn the wimpy useless John into someone people can believe in and many changes will happen to Cameron in this story. I have already planned out the ending for this one so it isn't going to be very big story but I plan to continue on its foundation in a another story I have outlined.
This is going to be Fun: This is an AU of Sailor moon and Ranma ½ where the girls in Sailor Moon don't get awakened until they are older, around 19 for the inners. For Ranma and crew we are going to join them when Ranma and Akane are going to be starting their senior year and Nabiki is trying to get everything all setup for college as she leaves home. Also, I'm going to make things quiet a bit more serious and really change some of the characters. We will join them in the middle of Pharaoh 90 and Mistress 9 events and after Ranma has been through everything in the Manga for the major events. However, a surprise is lurking for them because in one battle the Senshi accidentally manage to awaken an enemy unlike any other they will or ever have met and one who will prove to be the more difficult than they could have ever imagined. Who is this new enemy, well Xellos, of course. Also, this story is going to really focus on Xellos and how he plots to reshape the world to his liking and pursues his various plots all the while dragging the Senshi and the Nermina Wrecking Crew into it. Also many things are going to be totally different in the world so try to keep an open mind but mainly I'm going to have some good fun with my favorite slayers character, cast of magical girls, and nutcase martial artists.
The True Sakura: I'm going to be starting one more new story as I work on my others. A lot of people have told me that my writing style is a bit direct and they want something more passive and not as imperative. I will be attempting that in this story. I'm sure it is going to be difficult for me but I want to give it a go. Self-improvement and all that. :-P I also wanted to write a Naruto story and take things in a really different direction. I like a lot of the characters from the story but the actual story itself is really crappy (feel free to argue with me). I hope that my vision will be fun for others to read. ;-) The story will also be quite long as I can't seem to let my imagination think in small terms.
Update June 29, 2011: Yes I am still alive but I have been really busy for the last 2 years. Actually, I haven't even been in the country for the last 2 years. It was a really neat experience to live somewhere else for a while and discover how different a place can be from where you have grown up but also it is really neat to discover how similar things can also be.
Anyways, I want people to know that I'm going to start writing again. Now while I still have all my notes I need to reread my stories since I need to get their mindset back in my head. Plus, it will be a great time to fix all those stupid typos I made. I can fully understand why Stephen King says he likes to let a manuscript sit in his desk for a year before fixing it up to send to a publisher. You just miss so many of your own mistakes when working on things in a short period of time. Oh well.
I also have a few ideas for some new stories as well. Sorry that all of you might have thought I was gone for good just that is how my life is. Surprising and very busy all the time. ;-)
Take care everyone!
