Bio Fav: Stories . Authors
Andrea, twenty-something, Minneapolis. I'm ADD, so if you're wondering about a rambling review for your story that seemed to have no point: it probably didn't have one. I have a bad habit of internet rambling and info-dumping. I don't review much anymore since I'm so painfully bad at it. Putting things into words trips me up… probably because I'm out of practice.
I have a lot of favorites because it's easier to keep track of everything. It's less of an "ultimate fav" list and more an "anything I've read and moderately liked since I was 16". Some stories or fandoms or ships I've outgrown but can you imagine trying to sort through it all NOW?
Other bits: Twific was more of a pass-the-time-whilst-unemployed-with-regularly-updated-stories than a love of Twilight. To be honest, I find the canon!Twilight boring at best and fundamentalist Mormon propaganda at worst. But there was a lot of human AU fic and it was EVERYWHERE. I didn't have to pick apart the Internet to find things written in grammatically-sound English or be familiar with the source material beyond basic pop culture.
Naruto… an example of a cool concept eventually butchered by a mangaka whose strengths were in worldbuilding, not storytelling. And probably being pressured to draw it out.
Favorite gif: NOPEtopus.
Tamora Pierce is my all-time favorite author. Nostalgia-influenced, most definitely, but I just feel better after I read one of her books. Even the early ones that feel clunky by comparison! Mine is an irrational love.
As for me? I'm a Ravenclaw. A lazy, rule-bending, artistic one. Which makes no sense when you first look at it but when you strip it all down, my driving principle is curiosity.
