Welcome to the My Zone!
Some history about me
I started on Fanfiction when I was 11 in about 2004
I have two accounts. Coolgirlc was my first account but because I was 11 at the time, I was paranoid. I created a second account (this one) to lie and say I had a twin so no one would ever be able to track me down. What can I say? I was young and stupid. You will find the same story on Deviantart except I'm Pdragongirlj on there.
The reasoning behind my name is that I was a fan of American Dragon: Jake Long. I miss that show.
My first story was Teen Titans
My first crossover was Teen Titans/ American Dragon: Jake Long which lasted about two stories before I took it down because the writing was juvenile.
My first OC was Anna, an old friend of Starfire's, for Teen Titans.
My most used OC was a self-insertion...Big mistake by the way.
My first few stories were crossovers or original character focused. I've learned since then canon is the best.
My first focused canon story was Trustworthy for Penguins of Madagascar.
My most popular crossover is GOAL! (On Deviantart under Pdragongirlj)
My best story is Trustworthy (Pretty much my only full story)
My beginning stories were the opposite of what you expect. I was a morbid 11 year old due to family troubles. I liked killing off characters. I still do, it gives plot twist.
I am no longer a morbid 11 year old. I am a optimistic teenager with a strange facination for the weird things in life.
I had a OC contest once, (NEVER, EVER DO THAT! NEVER ASK YOUR REVEIWERS TO MAKE THEIR OWN OC TO PUT IN THE STORY! NEVER! IT ALWAYS ENDS BAD! NO MATTER HOW GOOD YOU ARE!)
I write my best in Ominpresent
Tips for Beginning Fanfictioners and Writers
1. NEVER EVER HAVE AN OC CONTEST!
2. Mary-Sues are always bad. No exceptions
3. Children of canon characters that you made up are nearly always Mary-Sues. Especially if they're girls.
4. Never read an OC fanfiction unless it absolutely stands out to you.
5. Never write an OC fanfiction unless you can make it standout from the other OC fiction out there.
6. Never model your story/character off of something already existing. The fun in writing comes from making your own world and playing in it. Develop your plot, develop your world. Delve into the depths of your imagination and speak to the people you're writing about.
7. If your going to crossover something, better make sure you can handle it. Crossovers have a tendency to get silly, no matter who writes it. However it is possible to make a very good one if you try and work hard on it.
8. Never have the "I'll update after I get # of reviews," author's note. It can turn off the want to review in a second. Don't guilt your readers into reviewing either.
9. When reviewing stories, never just write Update Soon, Great Story! Make sure it's at least longer than a sentence. Your reviews are meant either constructive and uplifting. Point out the things that work and maksuggestions about the things that don't.
10. Write because you want to write, not because the reviewers want you to write. This will hurry the story and nearly no one can pull off a hurried chapter. This is your baby, not theirs.
11. Be descriptive. There's no such thing as too much description. Always show and never tell.
12. Have a good, sensible plot. Even if it's good writing, It will end bad if there is no plot.
13. Be prepared for your plot to take a different direction than you started with.
14. Expect the unexpected.
15. If someone flames your story without leaving a reason why they hate it, you either ask why they hated it or just ignore the review. Flamers are idiots.
16. There's a difference between a constructive reveiw and a flame. If someone tells you how your story can be improved, do not yell at them. They're just trying to help.
17. If you have a favorite fanfic writer and want them to review a story, just ask them to. Don't constantly bother them, but leave a small professional request and I'm sure they'll happily answer you.
18. When someone leaves you a constructive review, become friends with them. They'll help you so much and it'll open doors you never imagined.
19. Don't be afraid to write in different genres, this will expand your area of expertise and you'll be surprised what you're good at.
20. Write plenty and write often. The more you do it, the better you get. There's not a difference between Author's block and laziness.
My thoughts on Shipping
However, I do mainly avoid Slash and OC ships, but that is mainly because they are usually all the same.
And the ships with young children...just no...no man no.
