    Allo. Howdy. Hi. Hola.  Welcome to my profile!

    I've been writing stories since 2010 and have no plans of stopping any time soon.

    I created this account to reach a wider audience and to post more mature versions of my stories I post as Cha's Aegis at since MA rated stories aren't allowed there. I posted most of my stories from there here anyway, so you're not really going to find much that's new or different.

    I respect this site, regardless of the rules and changes the site admins implement. Fanfiction isn't a passing fad until the next shiny object grabs my attention. I don't operate under the delusion I can do what I want here because no one cares.

    Newsflash: Some of us do care. We care enough to use the report feature per the site rules.

    Don't like it? Then get the fuck out of our fanfiction and leave it to those of us who love it.

    Favorite quotes found perusing the internet:

    'I’m starting to want to go up to these people and introduce myself or give them my card and say, “Hi, I’m Lizzie. Maybe you should stop staring and start learning.”' - Lizzie Velasquez born with the inability to gain body fat and cruelly named 'Ugliest Woman in the World' by online bullies.

    "Wars begin where you will, but they do not end where you please." - Niccolo Machiavelli.

    "Nothing I can do for you until you recognize it wasn't 'Islam' that attacked on 9/11/01, It was Al-Qaeda that attacked America, hiding behind Islam..." -Unknown

    "Under no circumstances will I ever purchase anything offered to me as the result of an unsolicited e-mail message. Nor will I forward chain letters, petitions, mass mailings, or virus warnings to large numbers of others. This is my contribution to the survival of the online community." - Roger Ebert

    "The first to apologize is the bravest. The first to forgive is the strongest. And the first to let go is the happiest." - Unknown as it can be found almost everywhere.

    "Why should I change? I’m fine just the way I am." -Calvin and Hobbes

    “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has goodwill, who am I to judge?” -Pope Francis

    Fanfiction likes

    Constructive reviews Best way to learn from mistakes when freely offered by someone who cared enough to share, regardless of how harsh it may sound.

    Writers who work on their story Runs the gamut from proofreading before posting to really thinking out your plot line. Plot holes are forgivable. Happens to the best and the more complicated the story, the more likely it'll happen. Everything else is laziness.

    Writers who accept constructive criticism Shows you're willing to grow and develop. That you care about improving.

    Writers who don't care about review counts If you love writing, it shows and makes it more enjoyable for your readers. Otherwise it's like watching one of the Mainstreet parades at Disneyland and seeing a supposedly happy, dancing dwarf looking really bored and pissy. Just kills the mood.

    Fanfiction dislikes

    Incomplete reviews Saying a story is great is okay. Readers simply want to say they like it. If you don't like something, explain it. Writer's aren't mind readers. They can't fix a problem if they aren't aware of it. If you can't bother to say why, then don't bother reviewing at all.

    Demanding reviews, but don't make improvements A lot of writers don't have the time to rework their fics. Annoying, but understandable. I'm referring to those who say 'my spelin suks but i'm knot gon to corect it.' If a story is badly written because of spelling, grammar, a confusing plot line, etc. why post it?

    Fanfiction is supposed to be fun, not a struggle in comprehension. I can understand the Wallstreet Journal written in Chinese than some of the crap here. If all you want is, "It's g8!" then content yourself with the five reviews claiming "diz iz kewl pls upd8 soon!" while I move on to the better stuff without a glance back.

    Writers holding stories hostage for reviews Aka, attention whoring. If a writer whines they won't continue if they don't get 'X' number of reviews, I snort and hit the 'back' button. They're no different than the proverbial little monkey dancing for the crowd for peanuts, forgetting that earning said peanuts is dependent on performance and attitude. Meaning, writers aren't in any position to demand anything.

    And they'll never be cuter than the monkey.

    Plagiarizers! If you didn't write it reviews are meaningless because it's NOT YOURS! They're pathetic attention whores. NO ONE likes them and can never justify it.

    Doesn't apply to writers inspired by another's work and write a similar story. Some have been unfairly accused of plagiarizing because some elements of their story is similar to another. That's not plagiarism. If you make an idea your own that's okay. Let the original author know they inspired you. You'll find most are flattered and want to know when you post to see what you came up with off of their idea. You basically get another reader without much effort.
