ABOUT MY WRITING:
I write fanfiction and original works as a way to partially cope with anxiety and depression. I don’t talk about this for pity or for any sort of attention. I talk about it because I there are people out there struggling. If you're going through a lot and still here, just realize you've made it through a day of pain you didn't think you'd be able to make it through. If you made it through this one, you can make it through another.
A significant portion my stories come from issues that I have in my life, events that have happened, and other portions come from other people or my imagination. I mainly try to write happy endings because it gives me hope I want my stories to entertain and make people smile. My dream is to bring that to people in novel form as well. I write different types of humour from the immature and idiotic (as a reviewer named Veronas said on my story A Sticky Holiday) to subtle. When I do write angst, it tends to be focused on suicide or other mental struggles and I write it as a way to release what I’m feeling at a particular time.
I don’t tend to pay attention to political correctness much in stories, but I never set out to intentionally offend or hurt anyone. I do base things in stories on views at the time period or on character views. The characters are not me. The characters often do not share my views unless I’m inspired by something that happened in real life. If I worry about offending people I would have no stories up since everyone is offended by something.
I will not censor myself to please those who dig and dig for something they can be offended about.
I’m: pro-gun, pro-free speech on ALL sides, pro-choice, LGBT supporter, egalitarian, but I don't belong to any "groups" and I respect anyone with an opposite point of view as long as they’re respectful of mine as well.
I can get along with almost anyone as long as they can take a joke. I love people who can joke about anything and not get offended. My favorite comedians are George Carlin and Robin Williams.
I have a horrible memory when it comes to things I need/want to do. There's a royai fanfiction out there that I know the author asked me to read and beta, but for the life of me I can't remember who it was and the fic. If you're that author, let me know please. I'm terribly sorry.
I love cute things with stuff like cupcakes on it, Hello kitty items, Cinderella merchandise, chibi things, etc.
Favorite pairings: Royai – Havoc/Rebecca (FMA) -CaptainSwan -OutlawQueen (before the Zelena stuff) Dragonqueen (Regina/Maleficent pairing and I blame you Izumi's Apprentice for this. XD) –Season 1 Rumbelle- Xellosfilla - Serena/Sapphire- Serena/Mamaoru -Galavant/Isabella - Kagome/Sesshoumaru - Bulma/Vegeta - Bulla(Bra)/Goten – Sam/Jack (Stargate SG1) – Riker/Troy (Startrek TNG)- Snape/(LEGAL) Hermione -Harry/Draco (this happened so suddenly LOL) - Harry/Hermione - Hayate/Himeno from Pretear - Miyaka/Hotohori Miyaka/Tamahome Miyaka/Tasuki
Favorite Music: I like a little bit of everything, though I've yet to find an instrumental Jazz or Bluegrass song I enjoy. I favor Korean and Japanese pop music because it cheers me up.
Favorite Movie: I rarely sit down to watch a movie since I can't sit still. On the rare occasional I do watch movies, I usually watch things set in the Victorian or Medieval time frame, or I tend to favor classic movies from the 40's to the 70's. I love the classic Disney from Snow White up to Aladdin. After that, other than Tangled and Princess and the Frog, I don’t care much for newer Disney. Other than Elsa, I found Frozen overrated. Cinderella (all three of the animated movies) is my favorite.
TV show: I like documentaries and shows like Dirty Jobs, and Ghost Adventures. I enjoy Once Upon A Time, Galavant, The Nanny, I Dream of Jeannie, Stargate SG1 and all the Star Treks. Despite not being very conservative, I hate shows that have too much nudity and too much cursing yet for some reason I have no issues with that being in books or fanfics. I guess I'm a tad bit hypocritical there.
Books: The Blue Sword and Hero and the Crown both by Robin McKinley. Everyone else grew up with Harry Potter. Though I enjoyed HP I couldn’t love it as much as everyone else, so these books were kind of like my Harry Potter. They’re my childhood, so I can understand the HP love even if I can’t really participate in it as much. I also like Fairy Tale stories and Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice (stock answer I know XD).
Political correctness is America's newest form of intolerance, and it is especially pernicious because it comes disguised as tolerance. It presents itself as fairness, yet attempts to restrict and control people's language with strict codes and rigid rules. I'm not sure that's the way to fight discrimination. I'm not sure silencing people or forcing them to alter their speech is the best method for solving problems that go much deeper than speech.”― George Carlin, When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?
Instead of spending your energy on things you hate, why not spend it on things you love. Instead of bashing what you hate, ignore it and add more to the things you enjoy. Replace the negative with the positive and you'll be in a better place.
People who attempt suicide aren't cowards, people who have committed suicide aren't cowards. They're people in pain who have given up hope, see no hope. Instead of calling them names and labeling them, how about be a little hope in their world. They get enough negativity as is. I'm not romanticizing it by saying that either. There's nothing "romantic" about it. It's a sad dark place. I'm saying be there, help them get help, tell them you love them before you have to tell it to a stone. You can't always help, but there's always chances that you can. - Part of a conversion I had with a friend who called it selfish and cowardly.
Destroy this new idea that a woman can’t be strong if she cries over a man she’s lost. Destroy the idea that you have to be cold and emotionally detached in order to be a strong woman. - tarcaryen on tumblr.
“People can't seem to get it through their heads that there is never any healing or closure. Ever. There is only a short pause before the next "horrifying" event. People forget there is such a thing as memory, and that when a wound "heals" it leaves a permanent scar that never goes away, but merely fades a little. What really ought to be said after one of these so-called tragedies is, "Let the scarring begin.”
Screw writing “strong” women. Write interesting women. Write well-rounded women. Write complicated women. Write a woman who kicks ass, write a woman who cowers in a corner. Write a woman who’s desperate for a husband. Write a woman who doesn’t need a man. Write women who cry, women who rant, women who are shy, women who don’t take no shit, women who need validation and women who don’t care what anybody thinks. THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people.

Some people/programs are making mirror sites to this one. They are dangerous sites. If you are paying or asked to pay to read any of my fanfiction work, then it is definitely not from me and the work has been stolen. I am in no way associated with any of those mirror sites. If you write fanfiction you might want to post something to this extent in your profile just in case. Though I originally got the notice a year ago through a fanfiction group that this was occurring, I still feel the need to keep this on my profile.
