Hi! I'm MayDayGirl-Save-Our-Ships, although I used to be DP-Shrine-In-The-Closet-Girl. So either call me May or Shrine! I'll answer to both!
I spend most of my time writing, watching whatever TV show or movie I'm into at the time, and working at a mental health lock down facility. I always have a new interest that I'm writing about, but I'm forever obsessed with Danny Phantom. (Its a healthy obsession, I swear!)
I'm finished my B.A. in Psychology, and I'm going off to grad school for a Masters in the Fall. I aim to be a clinical psychologist in private practice or an in-patient facility. This probably feeds into the fact I love CHARACTERS. I love understanding a person and figuring out why they act the way they do. So you will see a lot of in-depth character exploration in my fics. This also means, however, I can't stand it when something is out of character.
I love talking to people, so if you ever want to e-mail me about anything please feel free. I love getting to know people on here that I may never get to meet face to face.
My best friend tooblondforu is on here, and she has quite a few fics you should check out.

I can't draw though, so you will probably only find more fanfiction and pictures there.
Okay now you know some basic stuff about me here is some other things you might want to know:
Fukai Mori: Deep Forest-Vlad has a few new tricks up his sleeve and gets the Teen Titans to capture InvisoBill for him, but what happens when they finally meet? cross over. (update: this one probably wont ever be done. I'm sorry.)
First six chapters are by LaBOBuren
Intangible Trust- AU "You may not be afraid of me, but I am." Danny has just moved to Amity Park a year after gaining his powers. He's had to deal with his secret alone all this time. Can he let Sam and Tucker into his life? What happens when they find out the truth?
Kia Kahi- Stitch reflects on his Kia Kahi, his true purpose. He was built for destruction… and despite Lilo’s best efforts, the temptation is still there. But even when he slips back into old ways, why does he still feel so lost? (Lilo and Stitch) Completed.
Despicable Days- Gru attempts to fill his role as a father while the girls settle into their permanent family. However, with a Super Villain father and three girls with wildly independent spirits, no task is simple and no day is boring. (Despicable Me)
Is It Crazy You Think I’ve Gone?- Lucy never expected falling in love with an ex-villain and his family was going to be even remotely normal, but after learning the real circumstance behind the girl’s adoption, she starts to see that this family is even stranger than she imagined. She often wonders what’s more insane, her new favorite family, or the fact that she loves them anyway? (Despicable Me) I will get back to this story. I'm so so sorry. I don't know what happened to my inspiration but it will come back.
The Town That Makes Everything Else Seem Normal- Norman is forced to spend the rest of his summer in Gravity Falls, Oregon. He has already accepted that this new town is going to hate him, so he just wants to make it through the summer without drawing too much attention to himself. However, when he finds himself trapped by a creature that shouldn’t exist, he doesn’t expect to be saved by two twins who seem to know more about this weird stuff than he does. In fact, compared to them, he was downright normal.
Once Upon A Shooting Star-Dipper makes a deal with Bill to save his sister’s life, but while Dipper is trying to fulfill his end of the bargain, Mabel learns a little more than she expects about the demon. Is there really more to Bill than the twins thought, or is Mabel just too trusting for her own good?
Future stories (that may or may not ever come out):
A Lot Like You- Chell’s daughter has free rein in Aperture, the place the former test subject once considered to be Hell. And the babysitter? None other than the devil herself. (Portal)
A Perfect World Begins and Ends with Us- Short stories about the new and improved Emperor and his relationship with his kingdom and his favorite peasant family. Ruling a kingdom is a lot harder with a conscience… (The Emperor's New Groove)
Misery Loves Company or Best Enemies- A year since Zim learned the truth and was abandoned on earth. Everything has changed, and yet, nothing at all. A truce has been established, but that doesn’t mean they have to like it, besides, they had always been better enemies then friends. ZADF
Advice for New Story Writers
Just little tips for people new at writing stories. I know fanfiction is just for fun, but it helps to have some level of professionalism in your work.
Don't put, 'I suck at summaries' in your summery, or anything to the like. I always skip over stories that have that. After all, if you can't write a summery and have confidence in it, then how can you write a story? Be proud of your work; confidence attracts readers.
Don't interject you're own comments during the story. Don't add in the middle of a paragraph in parenthesis: 'Idk I couldn't think of anything better', or 'this is my favorite part'. You can add an authors note in the beginning and/or end. That's the perfect time to talk about your story.
Don't apologize for what you have written. If people don't like it, then you don't need to make excuses like, 'I was tired when I wrote this'. As long as you liked it, or enjoyed writing it then that's the most important part. If you don't like it, then this is the perfect opportunity to change it, or leave it up for people that will like it. Part of writing fanfiction is practice. We all had to start somewhere.
Grammar is also important for new writers. You're story doesn't have to be flawless, but check out how everyone else structures their dialogue and paragraphs. Making things as readable as possible will keep people interested in your story.
I hope this didn't sound too preachy or anything. It's true that some of these are pet peeves of mine, and this was a kind of a rant... but just small things like this can improve your story and attract readers that might otherwise miss a wonderful story.
