Hi, I love reading just as long as there is some romance, and I like writing (even though my grammar is horrific) but at this point I'm too big of a wuss to post anything. I wish I could write something witty or clever here but then that would imply that I actually am witty and clever, and if any of you knew me you'd know just how false that would be. ;p
Anyways here is a bit about me...
Where Books/Stories are concerned:
-I despise the cliche love triangle... you know those stories where the lead character falls for some "special" person but some how or another gives some "other" character the idea that he/she might actually have a chance, just to end up with the "special" person at the end of the story. For some reason when I read these stories I always end up liking the "other" person more than the "special' person ,that the writer wants the readers to like, which means that I always end up pissed by the end of the book,lol. Now I hate these stories because they are soooo predictable but I can tolerate few (like some you will see in my favorites) if: A) The writer does a good job at not making it too painfully obvious who the lead character will end up with or B) If the plot is good enough then I can ignore the horribly predictable romance.
-If it isn't painfully obvious by now, I don't really care for cliches, but I can tolerate them if the writer does a good job at not making me feel like I'm reading something completely redundant
-I like my romances to be fully developed... I can't stand when two characters fall in love by like chapter 3 of a story or when they fall in love after having only 2 conversations. So I guess you could say that I like my stories to be realistic.
-I perfer my main characters to be emotionally strong with a good dose of common sense. lol
-I detest when I can see right through all of the writer's strategies. Like when the main character asks themselves obvious questions throughout the whole story as a way to increase suspense or hint that a character might be intrigued. A writer is supposed to be invisible to the reader, the reader is supposed to forget that they are even reading a fictional story...or at least that's the way I see it.
-I like fantasy, supernatural, mystery (historical/mystery), or science fiction type of stories...just as long as there's some romance even if it's barely there. Oh and about 2 years ago I discovered a liking for slash/yaoi, and now it's practically umbearable to read anything else.
Although, sometimes (more often these days) I find myself needing to read more non-yaoi story, just b/c a lot of m/m or yaoi fiction has a lot of female bashing in it and at times it can become annoying. I mean I get it, the male character perfers males, but that doesn't mean that at every chance he gets, he has to make all of us sound like the most revolting and naïve creatures on the Earth. My gay friends aren't like that and even though I do like the opposite sex, I don't look at gay couples, nor do I look at gay sex as something vile and revolting. I try to keep an open-mind :)
Things that I live by:
-There is only ONE race, the human race
-It's okay to be color blind, but I hope that one day we can get to a place where we can see the color and try not to ignore the differences that seperate us, but instead, try to embrace them.
- An open mind is the key to a better society
-Observation can get u far in life
If I get a Tatoo it would say...
"Lord save me from myself"
-STEREOTYPES = In my opinion, they only hinder us back as a society and they encourage ignorance
- A narrow-minded individual
-When writers on fp can't update b/c of school-which is understandable- but then when summer hits, they only update like ONCE.
-When writers on fp can't take contructive criticism.
If you have any book or FP story suggestions, feel free to PM me!
Oh and my favorites are just stories that I've finished, or are in the process of finishing...my logic is if I can get through the story- without wanting to scratch my eyes out- than it's a keeper :)
