Profile updates...well, here we go.
DPLxBeAsTxSnIpE here, and ready to kick ass. For those who are taking the time to read this, welcome to my profile. To those swearing angrily and hitting the Refresh button, see ya.
I'm a twenty year old high school graduate residing in the beautiful state of South Carolina. Only a few more months, and I can legally waltz into a liquor store and say 'I'm ready to buy all of your shit'.
I'm the Anti-Hero; alone, broody, and so ridiculously cool it hurts...
Due to crippling depression, I have taken a massive break from writing in order to get a hold on my life. I don't claim to be perfect. Hell, none of us are. I think that I have some talent for writing fanfiction (which is what most of my work is. Hell, I started a trend in the Halo/RvB crossover section in regards to the 'Noble Six is a Freelancer' fanfics), but the one thing I'll never claim to be is perfect in any shape or form. I have been battling my own demons for some time now, and it's part of the reason why I decided to get back into writing original fiction.
In my reviews, I will always give my honest opinion with the story. You will never see me curse in reviews, and I always log in. So if you get a review from someone labeled as a guest trying to be me and telling you that your story sucks, please know that it was nothing more than a sad troll with too much time on their hands. The lone exception to this is I review on my phone, and sometimes it cuts me off halfway through the review. In that case, I'll try and continue from where I was cut off. Everytime I review, I'll point out things I like and the stuff that could be better. Honesty is the key, folks. I'll always sign a review off, and I am open to PMs if you have questions.
I am not a part of any forum, nor do I claim to be an admin for the site. I'm just an avid reader and writer who truly wishes for everyone on the site to fulfill their dreams of being an amazing author. I have writing to thank for possibly saving my life when I first started, over five years ago, and take tremendous joy in it.
I may be one hundred percent heterosexual, but I do appreciate, review and write stories for the LGBT community. The negative things people say about those who write slash and femslash are really undeserved. I've grown up with a mentality that love is love, regardless if it's between two guys or two girls. I even have a story with a shemale and her wife in progress (check further down my profile for more details), and have an idea for a regular slash story.
If I left you a review saying your story broke the rules and guidelines of the site, please understand that it is not because I have a vendetta against you. I offer solutions on how to fix the problem, because the last thing I want is to see this site get shut down. I'm not some prude who hates lemons of all kinds; I enjoy reading and writing them as much as the next person. But if the admins say they don't want it, then it's their loss and I take it to a site that allows MA content such as AO3 or adultfanfiction.
I am very passionate about music, and I listen to a wide variety of genres. Whether it's beautiful instrumental beats by Blue Sky Black Death and Pretty Lights, classic rock like the Beatles, Hip Hop such as Run The Jewels, Cage, R.A The Rugged Man, J-pop like Ayumi Hamasaki and Utada Hikaru or just anime soundtracks.
If you are big fanfiction fans, look me up on Fanfiction.net. I use the same username on that site as well :)
What I'll be writing...*sigh*. I love fluffy romances and funny stories as much as the next person, but my guilty pleasure in writing is the darker stuff. I love pain and angst, and if you happen to look at the story ideas that I have for the future, you can see that. Self harm stories have always gotten my attention, because I know how it feels. For people with depression, you're not alone. I used to be like that during high school, and know how much it hurts.
I have a habit of writing random little one-shots in between working on my full length stories, and mostly they are written either to vent or just something to help me lose writer's block. I know this sounds really emo, but I doubt I'll be writing a short fluff one-shot; nearly everything contains some sort of angst. It just comes naturally to me, I guess.
I'll be making a few dabbles into poetry, but not often as it is not something I have experience with. All poems are property of myself. If you want to use a part of one for your story, please ask me for permission first. Nine times out of ten, I'll be more than happy to oblige, as long as you credit the source.
Here are some of the story ideas that are floating around in my head. Feel free to message me about them, and I'll try and get back to you as soon as I can. Please note that I will be cross-posting a lot of my work on AO3, particularly when we get to scenes that cross into the MA explicit category. I'll be keeping 'fade to black' lemons here, and AO3 gets the full raunchiness. Until Fictionpress allows MA content, that is how it'll be.
Guilt: A 'Piece By Piece' side-story, where the protagonist experiences something that makes him filled with guilt. Rated M for content, one-shot. (Note: originally was a chapter, but in the final draft it didn't feel like it was part of the story itself. Will be cross-posted on AO3)
Fragments: A femslash one-shot where the protagonist from Broken struggles with the horror and memories of the first story. Rated M for self harm and attempted suicide.
Red with Lust: A femslash story, maybe only five chapters. Rated M for mature (Note: Will be one of the two stories to follow Bad Luck Charm and I Just Wanna Be Yours)
Piece by Piece: A longer chapter story where our protagonist struggles with the loss of his wife, and seeks to find comfort in a new face that becomes more than a friend to him. Starts out rated T, gets bumped up to M later for content.
Hated: A very dark story replete with self-harm, attempted suicide, alcohol abuse, and themes that may be disturbing to some. Femslash, rated M for content.
Experimenting: A funny femslash one-shot where someone tried experimenting with their genitals, and got more than a slight headache as a result. M for content (will be cross-posted on AO3)
Roses Are Black: A vampire story about a young girl who is tired of being used and wishes for power to lash out at her assailants. Femslash, blood, hints of self-harm, rated M for content. (Note: this story will be next priority after either Bad Luck Charm or I Just Wanna Be Yours are complete)
Learn the Truth: A relatively angsty one-shot about a young teenage girl in an interracial relationship and the struggles she faces from her parents.
Contact: A short story, maybe only three chapters, about a man who lost his best friend in war.
While My Guitar Gently Weeps: A angsty one-shot where the protagonist struggles with his inability to tell his crush how he feels. My first attempt at slash fiction (M/M). Rated T for angsty themes.
Broken (one-shot): Said and done. Rated M for dark themes, femslash.
Depart From Me (one-shot): Said and done. Rated T for angsty themes. Written to vent.
I Never Knew You (one-shot): Said and done. Rated M for implied sex. Angsty themes, written to vent.
Free (one-shot): Said and done. Rated T for implied addiction, written to vent.
I Wanna Hold Your Hand (one-shot): Said and done. Rated T for minor drug usage.
Superstar (Poem): Just something I wrote when asked about why I do things the way I do. I replied, 'Because I'm a superstar'.
Her Name Is No One (one-shot): Said and done. Rated T for implied alcohol abuse, written to vent.
Stories in progress
Bad Luck Charm: I'll try to update every other week, but this isn't as high of a priority as 'I Just Wanna Be Yours'. Also, I should warn that this does contain femslash, as well as some slightly dark themes such as minor self harm and alcohol abuse. Chapter 3 is in progress, but it'll take me some time to finish.
I Just Wanna Be Yours: Currently, this is my main project. I understand that the first few chapters may seem sub-par in quality compared to the ones I have yet to finish proofreading, but I will be putting most of my effort into making this as good as possible. Please note that updates for this story are going to be a little random, as I want to take my time with it. Chapter 3 is in progress, but it'll be awhile before I update.
Massage: The second chapter is in progress, but it's taking me longer than I would like to get it done. Does contain femslash, and I'm also writing the uncut version for AO3. Hopefully it'll be done within the week, but I don't know for sure.
That's all I have for now. If you're interested in following me on Twitter for exclusive updates and plans about my future projects, you can do so @DPLxBeAsTxSnIpE, or you can just shoot me a message. I'm always open to PMs. Until next time,
