SinisterMastermind
"The only cure for writer's block is insomnia." --Merit Antares

AUTHORESS NEWS
(6/25/11) I JUST POSTED! asdjak! Mind you, this isn't my first account and so, not my first stories. But, they ARE my first stories that I am relatively proud of. =) So, yes, excited I am. Even though neither are the one that I am uber excited about, but that story is not yet ready. Just check 'em ouut, if you please. Later, lovelies.

(9/3/11) AKJDSASDKALJSLKD! My frustration. No interenet, than Band Camp, a little more no internet, than school stuff...ugh. Whatever, I should be updating soon. Oh and I got a tumblr. It's my homepage. Check it! :D


Who is SinisterMastermind?

Just a woman. Girl, really. A writer...kind of. Not really. A bit of a dork. Okay, maybe an uber dork.

Enjoys chocolate and anime and manga and bread and thunderstorms and booksbooksbooks. Wants to create a world, not unlike that of Harry Potter and Middle Earth, for people to escape to. Especially herself. Dislikes writing poetry, mainly because she cannot write it. LovesLOVESloves Shakespeare, J.K. Rowling, J.R.R. Tolkein, C.S. Lewis, Edgar Allen Poe, Holly Black, Michael Crichton, and Christopher Paolini. She loves God and Jesus is her Saviour. She does not believe any religion is wrong and everyone is free to believe in what they wish. Wants to see the entire world, both the good and bad.

Not putting her appearance on here because, in all honesty, who the hell cares?

Also, no age. She does not wish for her age to affect people's opinion on her writing.

Location? Pluto (because she learned it was a planet in elementary school AND SO IT SHALL REMAIN!)

Avatar? Wendy, Peter, John, and Big Ben from Peter Pan ("Timeless"). -S.M. does not own the picture-

S.M. also resides:
http://sinistermusings.tumblr.com/ Her bloggin' spot. Also, her homepage. Beware: extreme rambling ahead. Check it!

http://sinisterwriting.livejournal.com/ Just a writing spot. All oneshots and first chapters/prologues will get posted here FIRST. With all the plagirizing goin' around, she thought it best to have a back-up.

http://fanfiction.net/~sinistermastermind Fanfiction. Will trade reviews for eternal servitude (metaphorically, of course...maybe). :D


(Everything beyond this point is for S.M.'s amusement. You may read on or skip to the bottom, whichever appeases you.)

Thoughts on:

Harry Potter
She loves it. She can go on about it for days and days because it's a rarity to find something so heartwarming, enthralling, and realisitic story in this age. S.M. understands that there are people who do not like it, but never gripe about it to her because she will defend it to the last of her breath and you will lose that argument miserably. This story is not about extraordinary magical feats or flying brooms or spells; it's about growing up. And terrible loss and friendship and endless possibilities. It taught S.M. that there IS evil in the world, but as long as there are those with good in them, it can always be brought to it's knees. Long live Harry Potter.

Anime/Manga
This makes her very happy. She understands people don't like it and does not take offense to teasing. S.M. is particularly fond of it because she loves cartoons and a nice juicy plot. Sadly, american cartoons (though hilarious and fun) don't GENERALLY have both together. But Japanese comics and cartoons? They do. She has met some of her best friends in the entire world through this community and is forever grateful to having found it for that reason. Also, some of the most amazing characters have been introduced through here. Prefers Shonen to Shojo, but is beginning to get a fondness for the latter. Favorites? Naruto, Bleach, Fullmetal Alchemist, Fairy Tail, Fruits Basket, Kadocha, Maid-sama!, D. Gray-man, Black Cat, Inuyasha, Avatar: The Last Airbender (because, dammit, it IS anime!), Code Geass, Death Note, Inukami, Fooly Cooly, Yotsubato!, Dengeki Daisy, Ghost Hunt (...S.M. still has the occasional nightmare because of this), Full Metal Panic!, Koukou Debut, Vampire Knight, Ouran High School Host Club, Cage of Eden, Soul Eater.

Yaoi/Yuri (Gay/Lesbian)
Honestly, she has no problem with either one. She reads yaoi sometimes and doesn't mind yuri so long as it's not explicit. She doesn't understand people's vehement hatred towards either-or and doesn't tolerate bashing of these categories. Everyone is entilited to their own opinion, but there are ways to calmly and civilly explain them, rather than screaming "I HATE IT! IT'S AN ABOMINATION" or something of the like. She supports it one-hundred percent. True, she likes yaoi a bit more, but that may have to do with the fact that S.M. is indeed female. It's kinda funny, she thinks, how girls AS A MAJORITY, enjoy yaoi but not yuri and how guys AS A MAJORITY enjoy yuri but not yaoi. Funny, no?


Stories

COMPLETED!
n/a

IN PROGRESS!
1. Crytal Thorns
Rating: T
Category: Fantasy
Genre: Romance/Adventure
Summary: "Perfection is overrated. But when you can bottle sunshine and bathe in dew and sleep on a cloud, who is to say what's overrated? The world of the Fae is a mass of the impossible. Enter at your own risk."
Notes: S.M. really likes this idea and the entire Prologue. In fact, she kind of grins freakily at the thought of it. But she's scared to ruin it and so, hasn't added to it yet. Hopefully, this fear will evaporate shortly, because the Plot Bunnies are mating and multiplying.
Progress: Eh. Let's just say 10%.

2. The Gilded Cage
Rating: T
Category: Romance
Genre: General/Romance (for now)
Summary: "Somtimes, being born with a silver spoon isn't a blessing; it's a curse. Especially when everything you crave is nothing but tin. Welcome to Alexandria Dubois's life in the gilded cage."
Notes: S.M. adores classic Disney and so, naturally, got inspired while watching "Lady and the Tramp." ...Which is how this story got spawned. She has too many ideas and not enough room for this story, so she has a feeling it might get a little crazy. Pssh, as if that's a BAD thing.
Progress: Um...10%?

HIATUS!
