How to Write a Good Fan-FictionHow to Write a Good Fan-Fiction
Now I’ve been an active fan-fiction writer on the Internet for a long time now. In that time, I have received comments, feedback, and ideas from other aspiring writers and artist. I have also found and read other fan-fictions from various genres. While reading them, writing some stories of my own, and taking some writing courses in school, I began making some observations to help me in the future. And I’d like to share with you some advice on how you can make a good fan-fiction.
First, we need to discuss what a fan-fiction is. Well, to put it simply, it’s a fiction created by fans of an already existing series. Usually, it’s fans that want to explore other ideas and possible stories that maybe the source material didn’t explore itself. However, from my experience, and based on other fan-fictions I’ve read, I believe there is a right and wrong way to wri
Statement of Faith: ArtWhen I write, I write the stories I want to read.
Of course I want critiques and feedback and advice! I want to be a better writer. The better I write, the more I will enjoy rereading it. The more others like it, the better I know I'm writing, and that called positive feedback; I'll know to keep doing what I'm doing. If others like it, if others like it enough to buy it someday, cool! I'm [eventually] publishing for myself and select friends, but if other people want copies and are willing to foot some costs, that means I can afford to print my friends' free copies instead of just giving them a file. I like that. The stories are more real when you can hold them in your hand.
Of course I hope that more of my friends, as well as strangers, will like my stories. These are my worlds, and the more people who are interested in them, the more people available to chat with me about my favorite subj
Why #11 of 31 One-Shots Won't Be Coming (Yet)...To the few of you who are actually reading these, I apologize for not keeping up with them as well as I had planned. I confess that when I original conceived the idea, I skipped ahead to see the songs that would be coming up on shuffle and brainstormed on a few of them just in case I fell behind (like I did) and would be able to write and publish them faster. One such idea was inspired by the eleventh song that came up on the prompt, "A Message From the Man in the Moon" by Allan Jones (and Josephine Baker; it's an old song, but listen to both versions to see if there's one you prefer). It was supposed to explore a scene from "An American Werewolf in London" from the point of view of one of the main characters, the late Jack Goodman.
I know what you're thinking, "Can't she let this whole Werewolf thing go already?" Well, I can't. There's very few movies that have fascinated me like that one has. It's that strange mashup of scary, funny, clever, stupid, silly and depressing that's madden
Origins Radio Network - #KickingAssassinAss
Origins Radio Network
We’re back. We’ve got a great show as always. My name is Vibravo Maximum, and this is ORN. I’ve been struggling to get some great guests every week. I don’t understand how Yaleia can get all those female heroes to willingly host her shows. Whatever. Anyway, we got a great show tonight. The show theme tonight is Age of Assassins. Let’s get to it.
My guest tonight is one of the most skilled assassins around. He’s a member of the Assassin’s Guild, which is a prestigious assassin group from Io. I’ve never heard of them, but apparently, they’re really good. Go figure. Anyway, please welcome to the show Cutthroat.
Vibravo: Welcome to the show, Cutthroat. It’s good to be here with you.
Cutthroat: Same here.
Vibravo: So, you’re a unique hero. Your series was cancelled after only one entry. Does that upset you at all?
Cutthroat: Not as much as I would’ve
An Argument for Shulk
With Super Smash Bros. Dimensions just over a month away from launching on the 3DS in Japan, questions concerning the remaining roster are still prominent. Some people are waiting for someone to drop the bomb with a leak, others are doing what they can to dodge leaks so as to not spoil the surprise. We don't know what will happen next, and we won't know for another month or so.
On the flip side, that leaves a little more time for some roster speculation. And today, the focus is on making an argument for a Nintendo character that's been requested quite frequently. (Just in case anyone is wondering, no, it is not Ridley from the Metroid-verse.)
If Operation Rainfall rings any bells, or you subscribed to ChuggaaConroy somewhere within the past few months or more, chances are you know about Xenoblade Chronicles. If you don't, it's a massive open-world RPG that came out near the end of the original Wii's lifecycle. And to say that it was a success is an understat
Money Comm.s Open!So my mother has been having some money problems, and we're pretty much in a ditch, and I pretty much usually shrug it off like "Naw My mom can deal with it" But that's selfish... So I've decided to open money commissions, if anyone is interested.
This is not for my own benefit, this is going entirely to the payment of the house I live in, the food I, my brother, sister Mother and cats eat, AND to the repairs of our car.
If anyone is interested I will work my HARDEST to suit the drawings to your needs-
If you don't like it I redo it until you do.
Still don't like it? Full moneyback.
I would just really like to help my mother out since I never really clean the house of help her with anything.
And sometimes I even act a little spoiled- and I hate it.
So, I am determined to try my hardest to help her out this time.
If anyone has any pocket money they can spend and are interested PLEASE comment below, and even if you aren't interested please wish me luck, because i wish YOU The best
Michael Brown, Race Issues and More...I am a political junkie, so of course this is all over the news… Over the last week, I have been speaking about the issues in Ferguson, Missouri on here, facebook and few other sites that I am on…
For the most part I had no intended to write about as a piece on Deviant Art, but was asked about so shall do so now.
I received an private message that was sent to me.. , in the PM they asked does Michael Brown possibly being involved in a robbery change anything for you?
From what I know so far – I would say no. As I said to someone a few days ago when they said he was not innocent so basically what happened to him was justified.
“I am of the general view that no human is in general 100% innocent.. but according to earlier police and witness reports, the officer was over 30 feet away when he shot the final shots, according to three witnesses, one who was there with the guy who was shot and two others were females that spoke to reporters days ago..

Baseshey people. i know its annoying when you see this base that other people use and the original is deleted. so i have decided to do a thing. comment on my profile about a base that was deleted, link me to the original owner and a person who used it and ill remake it for you. I just know how annoying it is, and i've remade some for myself, so i thought it would be nice if i were to help people and put missing ones out there for everyone :3
Leave a comment stating:
1) the missing base
2) original maker
3) and a link to a used base
help me help you
I'm not sure what to call thisSo what led to the meltdown? Someone on an anger management forum asked me that after suggesting some books. Unfortunately, for now, it looks like I won't be able to get any -professional- help to avoid these depression related anger meltdowns that might have cost me at least one great friend. My family doesn't really consider what I go through to be... A thing. I suppose all I can do is try to find online support, read some books, see if the church has something and hope for forgiveness from everyone.
But maybe writing out the answer to this question will help me and maybe help someone else. Or at least provide a laugh.
I already mentioned that I blamed myself for the car being stolen. If I didn't need a wheelchair, we could have stayed at a friend's house in a better neighborhood instead of spending money on the hotel that required dad to work in the neighborhood the van got stolen. I shouldn't blame myself... But I do. But the other reason is that the funeral itself was probab
