Author has written 5 stories for Avatar: Last Airbender, Naruto, and Bleach.
So I've recently realized that a lot can change over the span of two years . . . and therefore I should probably revamp my profile which hasn't been updated since '08.
Anyhoo, as you're probably already aware, the name is SnapdragonBojangles. I'm a college student who lives way up in the far North and loves nothing more than heading out into subzero weather and three feet of snow on the ground. Yeah, call me crazy. Between classes, work, and my bizillion or so hobbies, I don't find as much time to write as I would like, so my updates tend to be pretty sporadic. Although I have a wide variety of interests, I tend to only write fanfiction based off manga and anime. And I usually only have the attention span for one series at a time. Although I'd be more than willing to try something new on request. Just let me know!
I am studying biology, and do deeply love the sciences. But I am also a fan of the more artistic side of life, and have been writing, drawing, etc. since I was a kid. It's so amazing, being able to create something out of nothing. And I am very grateful to sites like Fanfiction that allow people to share this. And like all the writers on this site, I like to know that my work is appreciated, so I love reviews! Although a lot of my writing is done for myself, it's great fun to know that someone else is enjoying it as well. And I am also very open to any critique and criticism. So long as it's intelligent criticism and not simply "this sucks".
A warning about my stories: I am a firm believer in the concept of stories "writing themselves". I usually start with a general idea of what's going to happen. . . and sometimes not even that. I despise detailed outlines and notes (although if it works for someone else, I say go for it), and prefer to be just as in suspense as to what's going to happen as the reader. Of course, this can sometimes lead to considerable writer's block and even longer gaps between updates. But in the end, I think it makes for a more exciting and dynamic story than one that's following some preset formula.
And I think that pretty much describes me as pertains to this site :) I love to talk to people, so any questions or comments about anything, don't hesitate to send a message!
My Stories (Gah, discounting my sole one-shot, none of my stories have been completed. That's pretty sad. . . )
Dragonblade (Avatar)-The Demon army advances as Zuko and Katara arrive in the Fire Nation. Will the Fire Lord help, or will the other nations be left to fend for themselves? Zutara! So. . . considering this poor thing hasn't been updated in three years and I don't hold much interest in Avatar anymore and most of the readers have left, I think I'm going to have to decree a permanent hiatus *sigh*
Hearts of Clay (Naruto)-DeidaraSakura. Only this time instead of Sakura joining Akatsuki, it's the other way around. Deidara is found badly injured by Konoha Ninja and brought back to the village. Another one that hasn't been updated in an eternity, but I am still interested in completing it. I've just gotten really burnt out on Naruto. But maybe one of these days.
Horror in Paradise (Naruto)-The Hokage sends the gang on a getaway to a mountain retreat. But as soon as they arrive, strange events start happening. Not a good summary. The story's better, I promise! Definately nothing else being done on this guy. I feel bad for posting it at all. Such an overused idea :P
No Longer Alone (Naruto)-First Naruto fic. Just a short little oneshot with Gaara and Kankuro. I should do more one-shots. I can actually maintain interest for an entire story when it's short, and I don't have to put my readers through the torment of uncertain updates. And I really like this one :) One of my first fanfics, but methinks one of my best as well!
You've Got A Friend in Me? (Bleach)- After years of a lonely life in the desert, Starrk has finally found a place with comrades as strong as him. Unfortunately, his fellow Espada aren't too keen on making friends. Will the new Primera ever manage to find the companionship he's been seeking? First attempt at writing a Bleach fic (currently my absolute faaaaaaavorite anime!!). But due to lack of writer ideas, I don't know if I'll be able to continue. But if that elusive little plot bunny attacks, I will definately keep going.
Valhalla Withheld (Bleach)-The arrancar have fallen. But there is something waiting for them on the other side of this second death. Whether a limbo existence, a second chance, or some kind of hell. . . only time will tell. Eventual Starrk/Szayel, probably other pairings as well. Despite past claims to not be a yaoi fan, I fell in love with the Starrk/Szayel pairing and just had to do a story that included it. This is the story I will probably be working on most right now, and I would really, really, REALLY like to finish one for once. So please read and review to keep my motivation up!
