Name: I go by Mango (sometimes "DS")
Religion: Messianic Judaism
I graduated from college with a degree in air traffic management, briefly studied agricultural biochemistry, and am now studying physics and English in the hope of becoming a technical writer. I write fanfiction because it keeps my creativity alive (I would like to write and publish a novel one day). When I'm not attending school, I help train horses and dogs, as well as re-habilitate birds (mostly Congo and Timneh African Grey parrots). If I don't have to read academic articles, I typically study mythology or read fiction (of any kind).
The avatar is a photo taken by me. (Please, do not steal the photo...) It was taken in Munich, Germany from Alter Peter.
The photo on the "covers" of Not my Time and The Anomaly also are photos I took. (I like taking photos of the sky... :/ I might change them later.)
Not my Time: I have revised and uploaded the first seventeen chapters. I recommend everyone to read them - even if you have read Not my Time previously. I altered the plot somewhat in order to make the story a little darker and more mysterious. Please, let me know what you think. I've really been working hard on this story.
I plan to continue with this story before picking up The Anomaly. The twenty-first chapter will be posted by October 31. It took more time to plan the events of the chapter than I originally thought...
Updated chapter twenty: 03/14/2015
The Anomaly: New story: Crossover between Doctor Who and Vampire Knight. I've already changed my plot-line for this story; I made it slightly more complicated, so I'm trying to get chapters up as quickly as I can manage in order to gain more readers. (I think the story is confusing right now, but I can't write it any other way without giving away all my secrets! XD)
Reviews are greatly appreciated; I'm in the blind right now about the story's perception. (I'm not one of those people who won't write unless the story is reviewed, but I tend to equate no reviews to mean the story is not being perceived well, which leads me to editing and re-writing chapters I've posted already, so the story never progresses.)
Updated chapter one: 11/02/2014
Updated chapter six: 01/13/2015
Unheard: Short Story: I took this story down (temporarily). I plan on making major revisions and completing this story before re-uploading it. Originally this story was an easy project, but then I had to focus on my schoolwork and lost my "situational awareness."
My fanfiction: I have two stories: Not my Time and The Anomaly. I started writing Not my Time a few years ago, then decided to revise it. (It really isn't the same story anymore... :/ Only the characters are the same.) The Anomaly I began writing because I've always wanted to write a Doctor Who fanfiction, and I finally came up with a plot-line worthy of taking the time to pursue. Because there are many parallels between Time-Lord and vampire society, I decided to cross the story with the Vampire Knight manga by Matsuri Hino. (I'm a geek for even analyzing Doctor Who and Vampire Knight enough to notice these parallels, aren't I?) In any case, I will focus on this story until I feel it is moving forward - i.e. when the plot begins unfolding.
Please, review critically on my stories! While I appreciate people who review to ask for an update, these types of reviews do nothing to let me know how the story is being portrayed!
I review: I review anything that catches my eye, even if I dislike the story. When I review I reply honestly because my purpose in coming to fanfiction is to help other people become better writers.
Please, enjoy my stories.
