Well, hello there, my fellow fanfiction lovers! If you’re here, chances are that you have stumbled upon one of my stories and you want to know a bit more about me. Fair enough, here are some things you may or may no want to know.
My name is Mariana. I’m a twenty-something (a very little something, mind you) writer from Argentina, which means that in real life I speak Spanish, but for some reason I am much more comfortable writing in English (I honestly don’t know why I do that) a language I have been studying for several years. This, however, doesn’t mean that I’m perfect, but I would like to think that I have improved since I first started here and I’m eager to improve some more, so if you spot any errors in my stories I encourage all of you to let me know. All critique is welcome (so long as it’s not pointless flames).
I have never posted anything I didn’t like; however I must admit that I’m just a bit embarrassed by my earliest fics. It has crossed my mind time and time again to delete them and post new ones. I have never done it and probably never will, because despite everything I kind of like seeing what a wreck I was when I first started and how far I have come. It makes me feel kind of proud. (Is that too wrong of me?)
I sort of specialize in alternative points of view. This means that when I read a book or watch a movie I usually find myself wondering what a certain character might have been thinking at a certain point, so I come here and re-tell the scene from a different perspective. I also love writing missing scenes, always trying to stay true to the story. I don’t normally mess with canon, but since my favourite characters always tend to die (truly, they do), I occasionally have to write a tiny alternative universe in which they don’t.
There are a few things I can’t stand when it comes to fanfiction. One is stories that have absolutely nothing to do with the original. Don't get me wrong, I have read some amazing stories in which the Cullens are all human, but other than the names they had nothing to do with Twilight, so I think that this was the wrong place to post them. It's like writing a Titanic fic where the ship doesn't sink. It's just silly. Another thing that bother me is extreme OOC-ness (I will post another example from Twilight, because I have to admit that it is in that fandom that I found the most ridiculous things), such as an abusive Charlie or a cheerleader Bella, and complete disregard towards the laws of life (Male pregnancy? Seriously?). I also hate non-canon couples, specially slash when there are no grounds for it (Snape and Harry? C’mon, people! That’s just plain sick). Bad grammar doesn’t help either (and yes, I know that my grammar is less than perfect, but there are some fics that I've read that my cousin, who is six and who has only been learning English for a year, could write better).
I’m a sucker for romance. Whether it’s fluffy or angsty, that seems to be all I can write about. Also, I love happy endings, but I also like to play with my characters for a while before I give it to them.
I tried writing multi-chapter stories, but that didn’t go so well, so I’m sticking to one-shots for now.
Jane Austen is my god. Okay, so not really, but I love her style. My favourite book is probably Persuasion (I have several favourite books, hence the hesitation). J.K. Rowling is another preferred of mine. (Someone once told me my style resembled hers and I almost cried with joy).
The Great Gatsby is my favourite book from an American author. F. Scott Fitzgerald is probably my favourite American author.
I’m obsessed with the Marauders, specialy James. And Sirius. And Remus. Who am I kidding, I love them all, even Peter. Well, no, I don't like Peter, but it would be really interesting to read what happened to him that made him betray his best friend. Seriously, Rowling has got to write more about them! And I’m also in love with Fred and George Weasley (I have a thing for troublemakers, it would seem).
I have recently come to the conclusion that I don’t like werewolves. The one exception to that is, of course, Remus Lupin.
I believe that one is never too old for Disney, so I will continue watching Disney movies until I die. Also, I don’t consider Miley Cyrus or the Jonas Brother to be Disney. I’m talking of good old-fashioned cartoons, the kinds that have Princes and Princesses and catchy songs. On that note, I think that Flynn Ryder (from Tangled) is one of the best characters they have come up with in a very long while.
I used to be really obsessed with Twilight, but my love for it seems to have faded a bit. I still like it, though, just not as much as before.
I love watching movies, but when the books I like are turned into movies I usually end up disappointed. It has happened several times before and sadly I don’t expect things to change any time soon. I also watch a lot of TV.
I love all kinds of music, but the BackStreet Boys hold a special place in my heart.
I seem to read a lot of sagas (I say 'seem' because I don't do it on purpose; I used to like stories that started and ended on the same book), the last of which was The Hunger Games. If someone else has read it, I would love to hear what they had to say about the actors they have cast for the upcoming movies. I personally hate them.
I try to review every story that I favourite but I'm awful reviewer. I'm sorry, but that's true. I'm working on it, though. You should know that if I take the time to review or add your story to my list of favourites, then it's because I think it's amazing and if I add you to my list of favourite authors it's because I almost worship the ground you step on (I'm picky like that). I also try to reply to all the reviews I get, good or bad, so please review so I can thank you.
You may or may not have noticed that I haven’t posted anything in over a year. This doesn’t mean that I have quite. I'm still here; I still read stories. It’s just that for the last couple of months I have been dealing with some personal stuff and I haven’t really felt like writing anything. But now that that has been sorted I feel confident that I will be back on my feet in no time. I have plenty of ideas, some of which I have already started putting down on paper. I will see where they take me.
That's all you need to know about me for now. If you have any question about one of my stories, or even if you just to talk, feel free to send me a PM. I've met some incredible people on this site, such as my beta (or rather, my future beta, as soon as I finally send her something), MaidenStar. If you are a fan of Remus Lupin I recomend you look her up.
Okay, then. If you made it this far, I thank you. This isn't a very fun profile, but I can assure you that my stories are better. You can see for yourself if you don't believe me...
