Wow...I got rid of the old profile? Why? It was rambly, stupid, and way out of date. For instance, it said I'm fifteen, an age I haven't been able to claim for about three years. =D
Hey, all, name's Ruthie. That's what my penname says, so that's what you can call me. I'm an eighteen year-old freshman in college (majoring in Biology, with a concentration in Cell and Molecular Biology) with a passion for life, sugar, shiny safety pins, hard rock, brightly-colored plastic beads, mossy rocks, running 5ks, knitting, and dried bones. Also high on my list are long-sleeved shirts, running through the rain, mechanical pencils, video games, aquariums, chocolate-covered raisins, pomegranates, laughter, fire, frolicking through the forest in search of hidden creeks, and sleeping. So basically, I'm a little fireball with a lot of love to spread and a ton of things over which to spread it. However, I simply cannot stand people who abuse the laws of grammar, gum-smackers, the smell of worms, Lyme Disease (don't get it; it sucks), dull pencils, snobs, n00bs, and--my one true anathema--shinsplints.
Most of my stories center around what I call the Main Three: Legend of Zelda, Warriors, and Pokemon. I may write a couple of oneshots or short stories in other genres, but those Three are the ones I stick to the most. All three of them have wonderful opportunities for story-writing, if you just open your mind (although, the last two have gotten a bit jaded for me as time has worn on). I generally write backstories and AU fics (although I've always wanted to try my hand at novelization), so if either of those are your speed, then you've found the right author!
I deal in concrit, and appreciate it when it comes to me. Possibly the worst thing you can do is tell me in a review, "I love your story! It's so cute and adorable! There were a couple of parts I didn't like, but they weren't that bad. You're so good!" That tells me nothing. Why do you love it? What was adorable? What didn't you like, and why? Why am I good? It doesn't have to be ten paragraphs long (but I won't complain if it is!), nor does it need to be overly-specific and anal retentive...I write in detail, so I love it when I hear back from people in detail.
Mm...really, that's about it. I guess I should just point a few things out before I let you go and read.
1. When I use boldface in a story, consider that the equivalent of an "a/n." (Author's Note)
Okay, that should be all. Ruthie out!
