- Yeah, I play that. Daily. Hey, don't knock it 'til you try it.
Hey. Pen-name's Sandstone. I'm a RPer, who kinda drifted over to fanfiction.
Anyway, my specialty's ocs. Preferably fantasy (favorite of mine). Call it a remnant of my RPing, but I dislike using pre-established personalities. It's more fun to make a NEW character who's reactions can go anywhere I want. Well, up until they're established, then I include the other, well-known characters.
Beyond that, my attention varies. I often begin to type out sketches of what I want to do, then write myself into a wall. It's common for me to curse myself blue when that happens. Not all my projects here will be listed, especially if I just wrote them up to get rid of a plot bunny that would never work out, and they're just five pages long.
Author's status: Due to a mix of needing to study, and several other things, my time is constrained, and I simply can't write as much as I would like.
Celadon Flight: Abandoned, to be re-written when I get the chance. My writing has greatly changed, and the story literally shows the progression.
Winds of Hope (Sequel to Frozen Wind): Working on it... slowly.
Blood on Blue Feathers: Abandoned.
Emerald Wishes (Pokemon Injection): Working on it, slightly lower priority than WoH.
FF Orix: Backburnered. Too much to do.
Angel Wings: Original plot was fail. So new plot being worked out, it is suspended.
Pokegirl related stuffs: I likely will not publish that on this site - a few stories in the works (as in actual stories, not porn with plot), but nothing that's really 'sparking an inferno of creativity', as someone I knew put it.
Ashura (I think that's Ash's real name) / Misty
Ash/May IF WELL WRITTEN
Assorted other pairings that I couldn't think of, mostly guy/girl.
Naruto/Sasuke: No frigging way. 'Bastard' and 'Idiot'? The two are like water and oil! Never work. I know it's trendy these days to do yaoi, but please... that's just stupid.
Harry/Draco: Excuse me while I go vomit. Sorry fangirls, but that's almost as dumb as Naruto and Sasuke.
Naruto/any male: Uh, no. Eww. Same goes for Harry/male.
Ash/Gary: Sorry, but nope. I don't get any hints of that from cannon.
Most yaoi. Sorry, but it's just not something I enjoy. To each their own.
Naruto/Sakura: She's abusive to him throughout the 'early' years. 'nuff said.
Write a yuri story, if only to counter the massive clogging of yaoi stories that I keep on finding. Sheesh.
Horrible spelling / grammar stories. Fanfiction.net offers a free word processor, yet authors do not utilize the resources that are available to them. A basic grammar check would eliminate a lot of headaches, and lower the amount of complaining reviews. Adding onto that, misspelling locations / exc from cannon when the information could just be looked up on wikipedia or another web resource that would only take... five minutes to find? Here's a more extreme example: I've seen Ichiraku Ramen spelled Ikachu Ramen. And to check the spelling, it took me about twenty seconds. Ten to enter 'Naruto' into a wikipedia search (I have Firefox just for that lazy reason), and another ten to hit the 'Ichiraku Ramen Bar' link, so I don't have to flip between tabs. The author who made that spelling mistake had... hmm... four reviews? that corrected spelling of various things like that. Yes, there are slipups sometimes, heaven knows I've made my shares of mistakes (I've mixed up New Bark Town and Littleroot Town), but I at least make an effort.
Review whoring: I know people like praise. Frankly, I'm guilty of that just as much as anyone. But authors who stop writing just BECAUSE they don't get reviews...
First off, I actually don't mind people e-mailing me. Just make sure you identify yourself as a FF.net person (in the subject), or I'll block you as spam (I get a lot of spam, so my filters are set to paranoid). My E-mail account is listed, after all. You can also IM Sandstonewarrior with AIM, millionstars3 with the Yahoo! IM system, or email@example.com for MSN messages. Whenever I'm on my system, I'm logged onto those chat programs. And I seriously don't mind random people 'popping in' to chat. I might ask 'who the hell are you?', but beyond that, it's cool.
For those of ya who are also on Gaia Online, I'm Sandstone Warrior. Rarely active (all I do on Gaia is journal and occasional forum stuff), but there. I don't have a Myspace account, and I do not intend to get one.
What's with the Sandstone stuff? Simpler than you'd think. I happened to like the card Sandstone Warrior in the card game Magic the Gathering, and used it as a nickname. It became habit, and I've used the nick ever since.
It kinda fits. I'm a composite of a lot of things - writer, RPer, gamer, dreamer, anime nut, scholar - but never one thing for sure.
I'd like to throw out an idea that I've had on my mind, but I lack the skill to write... a Naruto fanfic, actually. Call this a challenge, maybe. Main idea: somehow, Naruto becomes a Warlock (Dungeons and Dragons) just before his third graduation exam. Failing the Bushin exam due to his Eldritch energies messing with the Bushin jutsu, he believes the scam Muzuki gives him, as per cannon. Once he gets the scroll, and studies it, he manages Kage Bushin, but with a spare bit of time, finds out exactly what he is - a human with demonic ancestors. Go on from there on your own tangent...
