Author has written 4 stories for Tokyo Mew Mew, and Legend of Zelda.
Hello, and welcome to my profile! Thanks for stopping by. My username is kind of a mouthful, so you can just call me Pina for short if you want. Scroll halfway down if you came here for my Hunger Games SYOT character guide, or more information on the few things I've written...wow, my profile has gotten long. I guess that just kind of happened over time. No, I did not write all this crap in one sitting.
Status 2/28: UPDATED ON THE LAST DAY OF THE MONTH. How's that for keeping up a monthly update schedule? Like a true procrastinator.
Here's my list of fandoms, which might be helpful if you were thinking of asking me to beta anything...I can't think of any other reason it would be useful.
Games: Legend of Zelda, Earthbound/Mother 3, Smash Bros., Okami, Pokemon, Mario, Banjo Kazooie, Portal, Chrono Trigger, Metroid, Ace Attorney, Pikmin, Animal Crossing, Dangan Ronpa.
TV Shows: LOST, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Legend of Korra, Teen Titans, Seinfeld, My Little Pony, Pride & Prejudice bbc, Impractical Jokers, Running Man, Faceoff.
Anime: Attack on Titan, Madoka Magica, Higurashi, Princess Tutu, Fruits Basket, Wolf’s Rain, Death Note, Card Captor Sakura
Books: Lord of the Rings, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Divergent, Watership Down...a bunch of other stuff I can't seem to recall right now. I really need to start reading again.
Movies: Lord of the Rings, Hunger Games, Phantom of the Opera, Coraline, Groundhog Day, Back to the Future, Disney stuff, anything from Mr. Miyazaki. Except Howl's Moving Castle. I don't know what in the heck was going on with that one.
The most important thing you should know about me is that you should never me too seriously. If you do, you'll probably hate me. I'm not so sure my sense of humor translates so well over the internet, seeing as it doesn't translate all that well in real life either. The best way to describe it is...I don't take myself seriously, so you shouldn't. Also, there are times when something is so unfunny, that it becomes funny. Catch my drift?
If for some reason you were curious about my reading/writing habits or views on certain things pertaining to this site, here ya go.
-My main fandom is Legend of Zelda. There's so much potential to create good stories, by fleshing out characters and filling in the gaps the developers left for us. My top five games would have to be: 1 - MM, 2 - SS, 3 - WW, 4 - TP, 5 - OOT. I used to have Ocarina of Time higher on my list until I replayed it recently and realized that pretty much every 3-D console game that came after it has been an improvement.
I usually just write for Zelda, but I may read in a lot of the fandoms listed above, and I tend to prefer stories that expand on canon as opposed to AU. The other fandoms I'm most interested in are Hunger Games, LOST, and LOTR.
-I tend to like characters are villainous and/or jerks. And mysterious characters with unclear motives. And characters who are just plain badass. And characters I can identify with. These things do not necessarily intersect.
My favorite Zelda characters are the Happy Mask Salesman and Rupin. Yep. I have problems. Among my other favorites are...nevermind. If I start listing them it'll be endless.
I'm pretty lax when it comes to shipping, unless the idea of a certain pairing is totally unbelievable and/or disgusts me, and it seems like I ship Link with a different girl in every game.
-I am a perfectionist. I'm pretty good at coming up with ideas and weaving plotlines together, but terrible at churning out the finished product. It just takes me forever, and quality is far more important to me than timeliness. Writing is like making risotto, or a really zesty pasta sauce. I don't care how hungry anybody is. If the food's not ready, I'm going to let it simmer until it tastes amazing. NO EXCEPTIONS. I'm like that lady in Kakariko Village who just keeps saying over and over again "the food's not ready yet, but make yourself at home!" You'll have to be patient with me when it comes to updating, but I try my best to make it worth the wait and I will never ever put out a piece of crap. Never.
-I don't update regularly. I'll have times when I'll go on writing binges and post new chapters every other week, and then you might not hear anything from me for 3 months straight. This is usually due to me just being too busy and having to put writing on the backburner, needing a break to refresh myself, or both. So if frequent updates is something that is important to you, let's just say you probably won't like me very much. Writing is a hobby and there are too many variables (How busy I am real life, chapter length, how difficult a particular chapter is to write, whether I'm feeling motivated, etc.) that prevent me from keeping anything close to a set schedule.
And if I ever say "I'm going to update on _!" It's a prediction. Not a promise.
-I don't read too much fanfiction, but I make an effort to review everything I read. I'm not saying I'm perfect, but I do try to stick to this rule. As for my review style, I am a huge fan of the compliment sandwich...i.e.: Nice hair, you're a piece of crap, I like your shirt...only as harsh. Though, usually I'll only give constructive crit if the author specifically requested it or if there's a consistent problem that is bothering me. I focus on the positive and what I liked about the story, and I strive to make thoughtful comments. If I stop reviewing something, it's because I stopped reading it. Simple as that. Or I just haven't read it yet. No, I haven't gotten around to reading several of the stories I'm following, unfortunately...
-I am always open to constructive criticism on my own writing. It might make me a little bit sad or temporarily bruise my ego, but in the long run it will make me a better writer. So bring it! I may not act on every single suggestion (nor do I expect others to take all of mine), but I appreciate hearing peoples' honest opinions. Even if I disagree with your critique, I'll still be appreciative that you took the time to bring your concerns to my attention. You don't have to fear a snappy response from me unless you're flat-out rude or you insult me personally, in which case you're asking for it. By "rude" I don't mean "blunt". I can tell the difference between someone who is very straightforward and someone who is antagonizing.
-One of the main reasons I upload stories to this site is because I want to hear what people think about them. So just a friendly reminder - if you enjoyed one of my stories (or anyone else's story for that matter), please review! Writers spend hours pouring their hearts and souls into their craft for free, and reviews are the only form of payment they receive. We don't ask much, except for people to tell us what they thought now and then. So if you liked a story enough to read all the way through and you want to read more, make an author's day and let them know. Even a one-liner of encouragement can go a long way.
I try to reply to all reviews, unless it's a guest review, obviously. Or if I've already sent the same person multiple thank you messages for multiple reviews they've left over time and I feel like I might be bothering them.
-I like to check out the profiles of people who review me. I used to have a message here concerning the whole "give a review, get a review" thing, but I don't know if I worded things very well and I really hope no one took it the wrong way and thought I was BS'ing them. So here's a clearer, albeit blunt explanation. I like to be nice and return reviews and spread the love and whatnot, especially to people who I've talked to and built up a decent rapport with. But at the same time, I'm not going to read or continue to read something I'm not truly invested in. That just seems dishonest and not really fair to anybody. And quite frankly, I don't have the time or mental energy to read stories I'm not interested in, much less stories I AM interested in. Sorry if that sounds mean, but I still read for my enjoyment, and even if I do return a review, I won't commit to being a regular reader/reviewer unless a story genuinely grabs me. Please don't expect things to be an eye for an eye unless we've formally agreed to do some sort of constructive review exchange.
Hmmm, what else is there to say? I'm female, if you couldn't already tell. I'm kind of a prude, and proud of it. I'm shy and keep to myself in real life, so all my sass ends up getting unleashed over the internet. I'm a huge band geek and a trumpet player at that, so yes I have a terrible ego, but I am realistic and honest about my strengths and weaknesses, and I'm willing to admit my mistakes. I screw up a lot because I'm forgetful and a space case, but I always take responsibility. And I might come across as a pretentious know it all, but I'm actually just a nerd who likes to freak out and get way too excited over insignificant details. Please don't confuse the two.
Oh. And my favorite drink is actually iced coffee, not pina coladas. But they are a close second. Feel free to drop me a PM if you have any questions about anything! Believe it or not, I'm actually pretty easy to get along with and I like talking to other people about Zelda and whatnot. I'll only bite if you bite first. :)
Honestly, "The Customer is (Not) Always Right" is the only one of my stories I have total faith in and would recommend people read. Everything else is either garbage or me learning how to write.
The Customer Is (Not) Always Right, Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (Main Project, IN PROGRESS)
This is a written "sitcom" starring Rupin from Skyward Sword, told in 1st person sarcastic-stream-of-consciousness. And of course, it spotlights many of Skyloft's quirky residents as irritating customers. It was going to be my side project to help keep me fresh while writing "Masquerade", but then it ended up being the most fun thing I've ever written in my life. Ever. So now it's my main project. I think Rupin is a character a lot of people can relate to, and he's an absolute joy to write. I chose to write this story in 1st person because the it's the best way for the reader to experience Rupin's inner and outer worlds at the same time, and for me to milk the humor for all it's worth. I also like this fic to feel like it maybe could have actually happened parallel to Link's adventure on the surface so it sticks pretty close to canon. But it does have an overall whackier tone than what you might expect from the game.
Seinfeld is my biggest inspiration for this fic since the humor is largely drawn from the minutiae of everyday life, only with a customer service flare. And of course, laughing at other peoples' expense. It sort of incorporates the same psychological approach Seinfeld takes with his comedy too. I forget what's it's called, but basically you feel like a friend to Rupin because you can relate to his plight, yet you feel superior to him because you are (most likely) a better person than him. And that feeling of superiority makes you feel great whether Rupin is winning or losing. Now I'm digging way too deep, but you get the point. It was my intention to write a character that the average reader would find themselves loving one moment and hating the next. As for me, I just love the guy all the time (because c'mon, I love jerk characters!), but I also I like to see him suffer simply because it is so darned funny. It's complicated.
Another inspiration of mine is the Nostalgia Critic. I love how he can take the tiniest, most insignificant thing you probably never even thought twice about and make it seem absolutely ridiculous. Also...Impractical Jokers. I may have stolen a joke or two from them. Actually about 1/3 of my jokes are ripped off something else, but come on! All great things are stolen. If you're going to check out just one of my stories, pick this one. Please. Not the other ones. I couldn't be more proud of it.
Also, every time my dad makes pun jokes, I roll my eyes and go 'haha, not funny.' But then for some reason I keep going back and writing ridiculous bird puns into this fic. I can't explain it! It's like the epitome of hypocrisy, but it just keeps happening. And for that...I am sorry.
Pairing(s): There is some Rupin/Peatrice, although I don't like to slap that onto the summary because I think that doesn't really give off the right impression...like it places too much importance on it or something. What I'm trying to say is NO THIS IS NOT A ROM COM. Don't expect to be charmed by this pairing. XD
Current Status: Writing chapter 14.
Updates: Ideally, I'd update every 2-3 weeks, but that's obviously not going to happen. At the moment I'm trying to update monthly, but not on a set schedule.
Projected Length: 30 chapters, plus an epilogue. This story has become a miniature monster, but it's a manageable one thanks to the plot being relatively simple. I can say for sure that this story will run all the way to completion, unless I accidentally die within the next year.
I know you're probably thinking "what the heck is Rupin going to do for 30 chapters?" Well, believe me when I say he can do plenty.
Because He Left, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Just a one-shot I wrote for a gift exchange. I don't think it's bad, but I don't really love it either. I just kind of get an unfulfilled feeling when I think about it, but I'm not really sure what I could have done to make it better. Eh, whatever. It made the person who requested it happy and that's what counts!
MASQUERADE, Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (DISCONTINUED)
This is a Majora's Mask retelling, but despite being totally unoriginal and following the plot of the game, it does have quite a few bits of original content (such as flashbacks detailing Link's life between the end of OOT and the beginning of MM). Seeing as the latest chapter I wrote was all about the flipping Bomber's Secret Society of Justice, I don't really have much to rave about at this point. Um...Chapter 5 is pretty cool...I guess?
To tell the truth, I don't think all that much of this story anymore. Yes, there are some good things, but there are also bad things. A lot of bad things. Plus my general outlook on writing has really changed since I started this. Looking back, I think when LOST ended something in me snapped and I needed something to channel all my manic theorizing into, and LOZ ended up being the unfortunate victim. And then this fic happened. Yep, that's right. This fic is a pile of post-LOST withdrawal vomit. It is literally like, three stories in one. I'm not even kidding. That's how messed up it is. It did help me find my footing in creative writing, though, so I definitely don't regret it or consider it to be a waste of my time. My skills would not be where they are now if I hadn't had this chance to screw up and find my bearings as a story writer.
Current Status: I'm sure I'm not gonna continue this, at least not in its current form. A rewrite (like MAJOR rewrite)/re-upload is not out of the question, because I do think the first arc is somewhat salvageable as sort of a slap-dash character study of Link. But at the same time, I feel like my time would be better spent on other things. Like...maybe it would be more worthwhile to take some of the good ideas I had for latter parts of this fic and turn them into one shots and smaller, more focused stories. I don't know. It's hard to say what I'll do at this point since I'm not really into Majora's Mask at the moment. I'll keep it on the site unless/until I decide I definitely want to rewrite anything, but I doubt that will happen any time soon. By all means, read this if you like witnessing beginning writer pains.
Pairing(s): Uh...well the main pairing was gonna Link/Malon but obviously I never got to that point.
A Series of Unfortunate Events, Tokyo Mew Mew (aka garbage from my 7th grade weeaboo days)
Because I'm a strong believer in not deleting old stories purely for being embarrassed about them. That being said, DON'T READ THIS IT'S A PIECE OF CRAP. The conception of this story is an unfortunate event in of itself. Seriously, unless you're looking to kill off some brain cells, don't click on it. I'm warning you. It's not worth it.
I haven't deleted it yet because...well actually, I don't know why I haven't deleted this mess. I tried to once. I was one click away from doing it, but for some twisted reason I just couldn't. Maybe because of nostalgia, and because as hard as it is to believe, somebody, somewhere...probably still likes this thing. And now you're going to click on it because your curiosity has been piqued. Shame on me. And you.
I'd also like to add that this...thing...is NOT an accurate representation of my writing skills when I was in 7th grade. I like to think I was better than that. It'd be more fitting to say this is an accurate representation of my convoluted sense of humor at that time. What on Earth was I thinking.
Pairing(s): Keiichiro x Ponypie. Yeah. Don't say I didn't warn you.
I don't detail my ideas here any more because I'm paranoid of people stealing them. Not to sound arrogant like I think my ideas are the best ever, but it does happen. Well, it hasn't happened to me, but it's happened to my sister. Like, twice. What the heck.
Anyhow, here are some vague previews of the ideas I have floating around.
-Zelda one-shots, which could pop up at any time. Whenever I get the inspiration to start them. Likely would feature the Zelda/Link/Peatrice love triangle or Anju/Kafei.
-I would really love to do a short (like 10 chapters or less) mystery/horror series featuring the Happy Mask Salesman. It would be loosely connected glimpses into his "great lengths" to find Majora's mask rather than a fully fleshed out story, and will very likely be my next project after I'm done writing about customers. I think by that time I will want to write something that's low on fluff and not extremely demanding before starting another long winded multichapter, so this is the first thing on my list.
-A Hunger Games SYOT type of deal. I've got a decent amount of ideas for a story, though at the moment I'm not obsessed enough with Hunger Games to pull it off. And I want to finish the story I'm writing now first. And I'm still hesitant about writing other people's OCs because the horror!
I created a community for underappreciated Zelda characters. I don't know if many people use communities to find fics, but that's half the reason I made it. As an experiment to see if anyone actually uses communities. (Update: THEY DON'T! WOOOOO)
Authors whose stories I added - I didn't feel it was necessary to go to the hassle of messaging you about adding your fics beforehand, since this is basically just a recommendation list. But if for whatever reason you would prefer that I remove your fic from the community, politely let me know by PM and I will remove it as soon as I can. Let it be known that I don't really have the nerve to add a story to a community without reviewing and/or favoriting it first, so it's very unlikely that you haven't heard from me at least once before.
To everybody else - feel free to suggest fics since Zelda is a large fandom and rather difficult for one person to dig through. I tend to frequent MM and SS stories the most, so if you especially have any recommendations from games other than those two, let me know! My only conditions are that the story must be centered on a minor character or characters, and that it's a gen fic (no slash or explicit themes). By "well written" I don't mean it has to be one of the most incredible pieces of writing you've ever laid eyes on. I mean it should be enjoyable and it should look like someone actually put some thought and effort into it. EFFORT. That's what I care about.
That is all. Thanks for reading.

Final Judgement: The 44th Hunger Games, by Hoprocker
O Fortuna Velut Luna, by Hoprocker
Tips for Creating Good SYOT Characters
I wrote this specifically for anybody planning to submit an OC to Hoprocker’s 44th Hunger Games Fanfic, which is done accepting tributes, but I'll keep it up in case anybody still wants to refer to it for other SYOTs.
Often, when a profile is rejected, we receive questions such as, “what was wrong with my character? How can I make the character better?” Well, here I’m going to help answer those questions for you before you even start making your profile. For some of you, this guide will just be a review. But for others of you...well, let’s just say you might really benefit from reading this. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean to put myself on a high horse or insult anyone’s intelligence or anything. Believe me, I was there once. Writing stupid crap that I’m ashamed to look back on (coughseriesofunfortunateeventscough). But since then, I’ve learned a lot about characterization over the years (by watching Lost, like, 5 times), and I thought I’d to share a bit of what I’ve learned. Hopefully, these tips will help you increase your odds of nabbing a spot on the tribute list. Just a warning that I'll probably make a bunch of references to my characters and other characters in the past two games as examples.
1. The Name!
h t t p : / / www . onlyfiction . net/ms-test . html
This first one is the best because it intersperses questions that give you positive points with ones that give you negative points. So if you’re not the most experienced at building characters, you won’t be to tell the difference and you won’t be tempted to skew the results!!! >:D
Here’s another test that I don’t like as much because it’s obnoxiously long, but it has a good section on naming that’s worth checking out:
h t t p : / / www . springhole . net/writing/marysue . htm
Keep in mind that these tests aren’t 100% accurate, so don’t take the results too seriously! Also, I’m in no way implying that you should avoid the qualities listed on these tests all together (THAT would be hard). These so-called “Stereotypical Sue Traits” are fine in moderation and can actually help spice up your character. It’s just bad to have too many of them! You want to gently sprinkle some salt on your steak, not dump the whole freaking can all over it. Another thing I feel I should mention...this is only a test to check if your character is a Mary Sue, not a gauge that will tell you whether they're actually a good character or not. A really low score can mean one of two things: 1. Your character is really polarizing (a nice mix of good and bad traits), or 2. Your character is really really boring. So yeah. Just because you don't have a Mary Sue doesn't necessarily mean you've got an awesome character on your hands.
Ok, sorry for the digression. Back on topic...creative/weird District-related names are wonderful! If you can think of a good one, bring it on! But note that there is a fine line between a Mary Sue name and a punny District name, so beware. Rather than attempt to explain, I’m just going to throw a few good and bad examples out there to help illustrate this.
The Bad, from elsewhere on the internet to avoid offending anybody.
Those bad examples were pretty exaggerated, but you get the point. For more good examples, look at character names from the actual Hunger Games. For more bad examples, go on the FF.net front page for any popular series and skim the summaries for horrendous OC names! I’m sorry if I was vague on this topic. I guess what I’m trying to say is, actually put a bit of thought into this. Shoot for that ring that just makes the name jump off the page, and roll off the tongue nicely. Just make a name that, even though it sounds a little weird, seems like it could be an actual name! It’s hard to describe, but there’s just this click. In addition, please make sure you give names to any parents/siblings/family/friends that are important to your character. You know how you get more attached to your pokemon when you nickname them? Yeah. It’s the same concept.
2. Don’t Base them off a Hunger Games Character
Basing your character off a pre-existing character from something else is fine, as long as you effectively integrate them into the Hunger Games setting. Heck, Hoprocker and I have done this with every one of our characters except Hip. When I say, “integrate them into the Hunger Games setting” I mean try to give them an interesting district-themed backstory, and make sure people won’t immediately notice that you just flung a younger, mildly handsome version of the Happy Mask Salesman into Panem *cough*. And if you decide to name the character after their original inspiration, be sure to disguise the name a bit, especially if they’re from a really well known series. If you base your character off Seamus Finnigan and you name him Seamus Finnigan, everybody is going to be like, “Hey-o Seamus! What nasty spell backfired on you and brought you to Panem?” because I can guarantee you the vast majority of people on this site have read a Harry Potter Book at some point in their life.
3. Don’t Base the Character off Yourself
I think the reason for this is...we all want to think of ourselves as good people, so we limit the characters’ actions to what we would do if we were put in these situations, and we don’t give them enough flaws. As I’ve grown older and less egocentric, I’ve found it’s much much more fun to base characters off other people (NOT your best friend. Friend inserts are getting to be just as bad as self-inserts!) or characters from other things. Why? Because these self-imposed limits we put on ourselves (sometimes subconsciously) disappear! You’re free to do whatever the heck you want! But If you do choose to model the character after yourself, there is a right way to go about doing it. My biggest piece of advice would have to be to exaggerate your personal flaws! Be willing to admit your faults and poke fun at yourself. If you do, your character will far more interesting.
4. Personality and Strengths/Weaknesses
As for strength and weaknesses, that section is specifically for physical ineptitudes, mental limitations, personality flaws, etc. that could hinder the character’s performance in the games. So anything that doesn’t have to do with the games can just stay up in the personality section. To often, people submit overpowered godtributes who have weaknesses that really don’t matter. Be aware that Mary Sues can come in various shapes and forms, not just that perky, goody-two-shoes girl many of you might have in your heads. There’s the angsty sue...the action sue...the hardcore little girl who can strangle a full grown man underwater with her bare hands. So please, be sure to give the character a significant physical/mental weakness or two that could potentially be a real problem for them. (Hint: “Bad at identifying edible insects” is not a significant weakness. “Reluctant to trust” is not a big weakness because it could potentially work in the character’s favor). Weaknesses help the author determine how the character should interact with arena hazards and other characters, and how their death should go down. It’s the freaking Hunger Games and chances are, your character’s going to kick the bucket.
Am I suggesting you should make your character some average Joe Schmoe who’s not particularly good at anything? No! Not necessarily. The most important thing is to strive for balance. If your character has a lot of strengths, balance those out with a couple blaring weaknesses. I’ll use Hapi as an example, since he’s probably the most polarizing character I’ve created. He had a ton of strengths and good qualities. He was (at his core) a genuinely good person. He was smart, artistically talented, proficient in knife throwing, and he even made a little bit of name for himself prior to the games. But he also had some major issues (mental illness, poor physical aptitude/stamina, nasty temper, trouble letting go of grudges, etc.) that really screwed him over in the end. Out of curiosity, I put him through that first Sue test I posted up there, and I actually ended up clicking an awful lot of boxes I knew were getting me Sue points. But you want to know what his final score was? -5. All his bad qualities ended up outweighing his positive ones in the end.
Also, character’s an orphan? Character’s mom died giving birth to them? These things are okay. We’re not against orphaned characters or anything like that. What’s not okay is tacking these details on as an afterthought. If this heavy stuff went down, describe how the character’s parents died, and how that experience molded your character into the person they are today. It doesn’t even have to affect them profoundly or completely traumatize them, it just has to have some sort of impact on their person! For example, Chat became extremely street smart because for the majority of her life, she had to look out for her little brother in the absence of her parents. Background details will help readers understand and sympathize with your character. Everyone will think, “dang, this is a real person with a history!” rather than, “oh great another orphan”. Think about what your character went through in their district as they were growing up and write it down! Because if you simply add “their parents died” as a last-ditch effort to garner sympathy for the character, quite honestly no one is going to give a flying feather.
Last, make your character stand out! And I don’t mean by making them some hardcore twelve-year-old career (preferred Career age is 15-18) or making up some unlikely scenario like a D1 or D2 tribute getting reaped against their will. If that were the case, someone would surely volunteer in place of that poor chump! There are countless other ways to make your character stand out, through a three-dimensional personality or a unique back story. As for character development, if you’ve created a 3-dimensional character and not some fugly card board cutout of a person, their development arc will be clear. If you clue HR in on where this character’s coming from, she can get a good idea of where they’re heading, and she’ll be able to determine how the games should bring out their good and bad colors. I’ll give you another example. Zane started out as the self-proclaimed “modest career” but by the end he became quite bloodthirsty and arrogant. When I was editing one of the final chapters, I pointed this out to HR and said, “this is so great! I love this direction you’ve taken with Zane!” but then she admitted she didn’t even realize she was doing it and it just happened naturally. So there you go. A well-written profile can go a long way! If you do have a certain direction you want your character’s arc to take, feel free to note it on your profile. But just remember that the more intricate you are, the less likely you are to get exactly what you want, as there are 24 characters to cater to.
6. Weapons/Skills If you’re creating a character who is supposed to be good with a certain weapon or survival skill, you must indicate how they acquired that skill in their background, preferably through some sort of practical application. Obviously, the careers trained for the hunger games so they’re all set. But if your character’s from an outlying district and they’ve never thrown a knife before, they can’t learn how to sink a dagger into a target in three days and score a 7 or 8 in training. If you want your character to get a high score, they must have prior experience in the area they show off to the Game Makers. Another hint...characters with high scores don't necessarily make it far into the games. Well written ones do.
Some Last Words
Whew! If you read all the way through that, treat yourself to a cookie. If you did something I listed as a big no-no on this guide or you discovered you made a Mary Sue, don’t be discouraged. Just take a step back with this information in mind, look at your profile with an objective eye, and try again. The truth is, creating good characters is not easy! It takes practice to get good at it. I apologize if I hurt anyone's feelings in any way. That was not my intent. If you have any questions about this guide or otherwise, feel free to PM me or my sis. Good luck and happy character creating! :)
