Hi! DP-shrine-in-closet-girl (A.K.A. Shrine) here!
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 eventually. 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. And there is nothing wrong with a long profile, Blondie!
I have a new fanfiction account where I will be posting plot bunnies and stories that I'm not too serious about. I just didn't want people who alerted me to be getting an influx of random stuff that isn't my best quality.
But if you want to look at it here it is:
My deviantart page:
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:
People always ask me when they look at my screen name, DP-shrine-in-closet-girl, do you really have a Danny Phantom shrine in your closet? The answer is-yes. Yes I do. Now, don’t worry, it’s not something really creepy like Danny’s face made up of chewed bubble gum (Love Hey Arnold) or anything like that. It is a bunch of pictures and little trinkets that I have picked up with Danny’s face or logo on it. And trust me, I have a lot of DP stuff. Also, if you ever say hi to me go ahead and call me 'Shrine' if you want, since my penname is kinda long.
Like most people, I love getting reviews and the more reviews I get the more encouraged I am to write. Now, I will continue to write even if I don’t get any reviews but it won’t be as fast. This isn’t to say that I don’t want any criticism, because I do! Any constructive criticism is welcomed and I actually prefer that to the normal, ‘Great story.’
For those of you who know me, you probably know about my reviews. I'm known for leaving really long, and really detailed reviews. For my favorite favorite fics I'll leave paragraphs and paragraphs. (Although it also depends on the length of the chapter and how much content I have to write about) I've even filled up the character count limit before. Yeah... I get carried away.
So, if I truly love someone's story, you will see more then a 'update soon' from me.
I label shows I watch into categories. I have one obsession and the rest are my interests. I only allow myself to have one obsession at a time and it has been my obsession since it came out.
Danny Phantom (duh)
Interests: (In no particular order except for the first one)
Avatar The Last Airbender
The Legend of Korra
Fairly Odd Parents
Billy and Mandy
Fosters Home For Imaginary Friends
Yu Yu Hakusho
Lilo and Stitch: the series
Growing Up Creepy
The Life and Times of Juniper Lee
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic-yep, its official, I'm a brony. Hey, you try to watch it and see if you don't suffer from the 'Hmm, it wasn't too bad, one more episode wouldn't hurt...' syndrome.
Movies (No particular order, except the first two)
Anything Tim Burton
Anything with Johnny Depp
Lilo and Stitch
The Emperor's New Groove
Alvin and theChipmunks- the movies
GOOD Animated movies is what I live for. I adore Disney, Pixar, and sometimes Dreamworks. I've been less impressed with some of Dreamworks animated films (although, Megamind, HTYD, and Shrek made me a fan)
Bluesky studios is pretty good too. Their most famous one being Ice Age, and so far they haven't made a 'bad' movie in my opinion. Just nothing quite as impressive as their first.
Illumination Entertainment- I have high hopes for these guys. I hope we see another movie as good at Despicable Me soon.
Laika- This studio is simply amazing! They haven't made a thing I've disliked and I can not wait until the boxtrolls comes out!
I am somewhat picky about pairings in shows. Usually I stay loyal to the pairings that are cannon, but not always. And I just can't stand boring pairings, they have to be fun and interesting to think about. I love pairings that have people who are completely opposite. I firmly believe that opposites attract. These aren’t all my pairings, but they are the ones I am most picky about.
Danny/Sam (Danny Phantom)
Raven/Beast Boy (Teen Titans)
Ron/Hermoine (Harry Potter)
Ron/Kim (Kim Possible)
Beetlejuice/Lydia (Beetlejuice cartoon)
Dipper/ Norman (Gravity Falls X Paranorman)
Jimmy/Cindy (Jimmy Neutron)
Sheen/ Libby (Jimmy Neutron)
Finn/Flame Princess (Adventure Time)
Marceline/Bubblegum (Adventure Time)
Jake/Rose (American Dragon)
# 3/#4 (Codename KND)
Billy/Mandy (Gim and Evil)
Arnold/Helga (Hey Arnold)
Doctor/Rose; Doctor/River; Doctor/TARDIS (Doctor Who)
Jack/Sam (Stargate SG-1)
Note the distinct lack of One Piece parings. I like a few people from one piece together, but I strongly dislike inter-crew romance.
Usopp/Kaya (One Piece)
Zoro/Tashigi (One Piece)
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.
