Author has written 7 stories for Gargoyles, Transformers/Beast Wars, Yu-Gi-Oh, and X-Men: Evolution.
Welcome to the about me section.
Name: Baird Crevan (bai-rd creh-van) Means "Bard" and "Fox." I was young and somewhat foolish. But I wanted a name that could go into other fandoms and not be particular. And, despite the masculinity of my name, I am female. I'm one of those girls who always chooses the male character in a game so that I don't get treated differently.
Job: Social Mediaist, Sales Associate, and purveyor of beads :D
My cup of tea: I love well-written hurt/comfort, angst, mystery, drama, action. Crack fics usually make me laugh, but not enough to review. I have found I love the Seekers and trine stories, and I bow to authors who have helped develop the fanon so well. Starscream has held my interest for about 8 years now, so I usually search stories by sorting for him as a character. I'll read most things with him in it. Also love me some Doctor with the Master, not always as a pairing.
Not my cup of tea: Mary-sues bother me to my core. Recently though, I amended my thought that OCs=mary-sue. That is often the case, but not always. I'm still wary of the Canon character x OC, but I understand OCs in creating interest for the reader. I always thought fanfic writing should be like writing another episode of the show but again, I've found I like AUs just as much.
On Reviewing: I love reviews, and whether or not it is rational, I often check my stories for the number to go up to know if it is doing well or not. Woo! Beat my personal best of 32 for 85! OMG! Yeah you guys! But who's keeping score? ;)
So, if I like reviews, so does everyone else, right? I try to leave beaming reviews if I read the whole thing. This isn't about ego-stroking or wanting something out of someone else, but I genuinely like to reward the gems. I try to leave long, interesting comments that show the writer that I read their work, and I genuinely enjoyed it. If something is glaringly wrong, I'll point it out, but I think there are better vehicles for people's negativity and trolling.
There used to be one writer on here in the Gargoyles fandom that wrote amazing stories, but I always noticed there was this one anon reviewer that always pecked at her for stupid things. It became a full-blown fight, and I watched in sadness as she pulled out completely, taking all of her stories off the net (I'm about 90% they knew each other outside, and it sounded like it was nasty) Not only here but other places as well. She had really inspired me, and I hate that it had to happen that way, since I can only remember parts of her stories. I think life is too short to spend it making people hurt that much...
So please, think about giving an iota of positivity to someone, will ya?
Frequents the following fandoms (in no order): X-Men Evolution, Gargoyles, Transformers, Dr. Who, Yu-Gi-Oh!
The Zombie Story: "Descend:" The Decepticons win the war, casting their formal rivals into a subclass called "Autocons." They operate as slaves for the higher class Decepticons. Starscream however is feeling outside of the new society, because he guards a secret that begins to weigh heavily on him as time wears on. Inspired by Oni-Gil's "Rise," and title is with the author's permission. (COMPLETE) Finally finished.
The Submarine Story: "Comfort Conditioning:" Starscream gets claustrophobia... and gets comforted. Updates: Gah! I promised an epilogue. I will write one. >.>
The Vampire Story: "When All Else Fails:" Starscream releases a mech he and Skyfire found on their travels, and it turns out to be a Techno-organic vampire. Buahaha. Updates: On hiatus- I lost the plot bunny. If found, please return to Baird Crevan; reward is love and affection.
Of Nightmares and Kings:" My new epic. Filling in a hole for some needed closure from the series and some cool ideas I came up with. A lot of the dialogue in this was me recording myself to and from work- talking for both people. I sound crazy. Anyway! It's an interesting technique and I've already found the dialogue to be higher quality.
