My name is Shannon. I am an avid fiction book and fanfiction reader. I spend most of my day reading fanfiction and I have no life...
I am 5'5" (maybe 5'4 1/2"), I have dirty blond hair (it is dark enough to be considered a shade of brown though...) I love the color black and wear it all the time (it is slimming and pretty much the only color of clothing that I own...) though I am not goth or emo, its just the color I think I look best in.
I have pale-ish skin (I stay inside all the time and wear a jacket when ever I am outside, usually with the hood up) though mostly because 1) there is always the possibility to get sunburned (which takes me half a year to get rid of not to mention I hate the peeling phase) and 2) dont want skin cancer (cancer is really prevalent in my family)
I live in Colorado
why is it that every time that hermione is found to be betraying harry that people write him to forgive her? With her intelligence I don't care what her reasons where she knew what she was doing, especially when it both ron and hermione that betray him. They have harry stay mad at ron and forgive hermione, or he forgives them both. She knows the difference between right and wrong and she made the conscious decision to make the wrong choice. The other pet peeve(s) with her is her nosiness. She sticks her nose into everything and everywhere even when she has no business sticking it in there. I would also like to point out that this bushy-haired menace has betrayed harry just as many times as Ron. Thats right I went there. In the third book I find that most people forget or dismiss that hermione was the one that informed the teachers when he got the firebolt from Sirius which resulted in it being confiscated,a clear violation of trust and a clear betrayal. Then in fourth year she may not have been actively against him but she wasn't actively with him either in the beginning of the tournament, also a clear betrayal. She didn't even try to defend him or really stand by him like so many say she does she didnt outright say she wasn't on his side. besides this there are many times through the series that she betrays harry in one way or another.
oh and something I REALLY hate when I am reading (this applies to Harry Potter too): 1) Fem!Naruto HE IS A MAN DAMN IT!!!! 2) girly, feminine, and short Naruto, again HE IS A MAN!!! 3) people putting naruto in dresses, calling him chan (which is a girl suffix), crossdressing!Naruto, and people who call Naruto a 'wife', and submissive Naruto (NARUTO IS FAR FROM SUBMISSIVE IN ANY WAY!!!). and last but FAR from least and not even the end of my list: 4) uke!Naruto... I have a few reasons for this. 1) the way that he was treated would make him not want anyone to have that kind of control over him, 2) he is always trying to prove that he is better and I think that he would be proving that in the bedroom as well, and 3) I just always see him as a SEME!!!! it is just in his personality to me just look beyond the smiling facade.
why the hell can't I ever find any (or very few) crossover stories with slash of harry potter with a fandom like X-Men or Avengers (most of the time) where harry gets to be the Dominate!!! Most people (and this REALLY REALLY pisses me off) fucking write him as pretty, or delicate, or girly, or super short, or AS a girl (he is a fucking man for Christ's sake!!!)!!!!! why can't anyone write a fucking fic with harry as a nice strong dominate in a fucking crossover!!!!!! in the Avengers crossovers it happens though only VERY rarely but I have yet to see it happen fucking ONCE in fucking X-Men!!!!! this is really making me mad, so I am going to start looking though the different fandoms and I almost BET it will be the same damn thing!!!!!!!!
(I really only get this pissed about naruto uzumaki and harry potter... dont know why)
I have recently been into Psych and it kinda drives me nuts that I have only found two Shassie fics where Shawn is dom. Another thing that I dont like about most of the Psych fanfics is that a lot of people make Shawn way more childish then he really is on the show. Half the time they make him stupid too, I mean the guy has a photographic memory even if he werent common sense smart (which he actually is), or even smart due to his father teaching him everything he could on top of Shawn's natural curiosity, there is the fact that he would have every book (Im sure included the dictionary and plenty of others) he's ever been made to read memorized. This means that he does know the proper words he just chooses not to, most likely for several reasons. To get people to let their guard down around him, make them underestimate him, make them feel better about themselves (particularly the police who's cases he keeps solving), to make gus feel more included, and lets face it if he pulled a Hermione and regurgitated every answer to everything plus a works cited speech at the end Im sure he'd have less friends then she did. After all there is no youngest of seven and friendless orphan to take pity on her. (no i dont like Hermione, so sue me.)
And why cant I find any Juliet Bashing fics?! She is so damn nosy and doesnt know when to stay the fuck out of it AND she doesnt listen when being given sound advice- case in point during the roller durby ep. Shawn told her it wasn't what she thought it was but did it anyways only to find he was right and she would up looking as stupid as she is. On top of that when she goes under cover she gets way too deep, if she had been a narcotics agent then she would be the officer that winds up going dirty because they got too deep and got hooked while they were at it. Come one guys I cant be the only one to hate her perky patronizing tone/personality!
P.S. sorry if this rant is like spilling alphabet soup and trying to understand the message written within...
obviously if anyone knows of any let me know please.
Recently I have read several reviews on different Naruto stories that drive me nuts. They all complain about how Naruto is immature and does know a lot of juitsu and how he didn't at any point deserve to be a chunin because it requires being a leader and mature and all that stuff. Well answer this: how is he supposed to know more juitsu or learn anything if no one is willing to teach him? Kakashi only really taught the team 1 thing and that was tree walking! Sasuke had his family library, sakura wasn't hated by the whole village and would have had a much easier time convincing someone to teacher her than Naruto would convincing someone to have a decent conversation with him! so is he lacking in some things, yes BUT given what he had he made a hell of a lot more out of it then anyone else would have if only someone would sit down and teach him or even give him a chance to start. After all being a chunin would be all about learning anyways! Shika was in no way ready to be a leader the ONLY thing he had was intelligence and 1 clan juitsu.
Jumbled rant over.
Ok, I read a thing on abortion on aislin94's profile and I was moved. but I have taken it off of my profile. the reason why is because while I think it is wrong I also don't think it is something to have on a profile at a time like this. I think it is wrong if you are getting one just because you didn't plan on a baby. But sometimes it is necessary. There are some women who cannot handle the physical demands of birth and die because of it. There are certain genetic disorders that will make a child's entire life a living hell (and they can be tested as a fetus for some of them) so sometimes it is merciful to abort the child rather than make them live with pain or sickness for their whole life. There is also the matter of rape. Would you force a woman to have to relive her rape for the entire 9 months she would have to carry a child made from an act of violence? Would YOU want to be reminded everyday of something like that? Then at the end of the time it would be another child sent to an orphanage, are there not enough parent-less children as is? Child birth is not easy on a body as rape is not easy on one's psyche, so not only would you be leaving permanent reminders on the body of the rape and child, but may also irreversibly damage the mind as well.

I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.
I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.
I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.
We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.
I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.
I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.
I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.
I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.
I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.
I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I did not have to always deal with society hating me.
I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.
I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.
I am the person who is afraid of telling his loving Christian parents he loves another male.
Re-post this if you believe homophobia is wrong even if you yourself are not homosexual. Please do your part to end it.
Love is Love is Love, if you swing that way great, if not great, but don't tell someone else it is wrong just because they are not just like you or who you want them to be.

92 percent of the teen population would be DEAD if Abercrombie & Finch said that it wasn't cool to breathe anymore. Repost this if you'd be one of the 8 percent laughing your ass off. ;P
I am the girl that people look through when I say something. I am the girl that spends most of her free time reading, writing, or doing other activities that most teenagers wouldn't call normal. I am the girl that people call weird, and a freak either behind my back or to my face. I am the girl that doesn't spend all her time on MySpace (or facebook), or talking to a girlfriend on a cellphone or regular phone. I am the girl that hasn't been asked out in a year. I am the girl that has stopped to smell the flowers and jump and splash in the rain.
But I am also the girl who knows and is proud to be who she is, doesn't care if people call her weird (it's a compliment), who loves reading and writing and doing the things that no one seems to have the time to do any more, who loves and is obsessed with Supernatural, who can express herself better with words than with talks, and knows the importance of the little things.

THINGS YOU SHOULDN'T DO IN FANFICTION (feel free to copy/paste this list...more people should read it)
*A bossy list by Raining Ink. Your mileage may differ.*
1. Accidentally write a Mary Sue. Go now, and Google Mary Sue. Write one if you must. But please, realize that you're doing it; and give us a warning in the fic summary.
2. Infantilize a teenager or adult character. Dear Hurt/Comfort author, if your sixteen-year-old protagonist is constantly whimpering, clutching a plush toy, looking at people with "vulnerable liquid eyes," sucking his thumb, or otherwise acting like a small child, you are probably tap dancing on your reader's gag reflex. This syndrome plagues Harry Potter fan fic, especially Severitus/Sevitus. It is not cute. It is supremely creepy.
3. Have an explicit sex scene in every chapter. I know. It's a shocker, right? But a lot of us actually read fan fiction for the plot. I will wade through a whole lot of explicit scenes to get to the nuggets of plot (and almost every fic worth its salt has some plot even if the author didn't realize it), but I don't enjoy it. Please at least let me know in the summary if I'm going to have to skim massively to find the story amidst all of the insert Tab A into Slot B.
3.5 Have an explicit sex scene at . That M rating? It's M, not NC-17. They are not equivalent. I feel pretty strongly about this, though I used to barely notice it and I've never bothered to report anyone. If you're going to write smut, write it somewhere else. There are a lot twelve and thirteen year olds digging through this site. I think we've got a responsibility to keep it clean, or at least clearly labeled.
4. Write without a Beta if you suck at English grammar. Don't feel embarassed. A whole lot of people fail at grammar. Betas are cute and plentiful and so gosh darn helpful that it will make you feel all tingly inside when you get one. If you are really bad, get two Betas. It's good for you. It's good for your story. It's good for your readers. And I can promise that you'll get more reviews if your grammar and spelling are up to snuff.
5. Write a "Group of Characters read the Book in Which They are Featured" Fic. DO NOT DO IT. I'm sure I'm hurting some feelings with this, but there is a very good reason not to. I have never, ever, read one of these that wasn't a horendous work of plagiarism. Yes, it's fun and funny to see how Draco Malfoy responds to the first chapter of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Super. BUT. You can't write this fic without copying massive amounts of the author's original work. I've seen entire chapters of novels retyped. The fact that the "writer" (aka typist) used quotation marks didn't change the fact that I could have read the original author's story without paying for it. This is plagiarism, not fanfiction. It is illegal, unethical, and stupid.
6. Use your story as a political or religious platform. Put it on your profile page, not in your character's mouth. Harry Potter really doesn't care if you like Sarah Palin or not. (Quite frankly, none of the rest of us do either.)
7. Write abuse scenes solely to garner sympathy for a lame character. Abuse is a serious issue. Don't make a mockery of it. If you're going to deal with it, don't just insert it into your story to "juice things up" or to make everyone feel super sorry for your protagonist so that they will understand when he/she starts carrying around a teddy bear at age sixteen and sucking his/her thumb. (See number 2.)
8. Summarize canon. Seriously? It's fan fiction. We're fans. We don't need you to give us every detail about how Harry Potter grew up with the Dursleys or how Percy Jackson is really a demigod. We got that memo. Write something new.
8.5 Write an AU in which nothing new happens. Summary says: Harry is really the reincarnation of Merlin, sent to Earth to save it from alien invasion, and Voldemort is really the female leader of the invading force. Rock on. And then, for 100,000 plus words, the characters do the exact same things they did in canon. Voldemort may be a pink tentacle monster, but it hasn't changed anything. Not even the dialogue. This baffles me.
9. Write entirely in dialogue. I'm seeing more and more of this. I know it's easier, and it makes your chapters look longer on paper, but really? Dialogue is great when it's resting on top of good exposition. Otherwise you're trying to build a pyramid from the top down.
10. Be Evil. This is for everyone and anyone out there who reads or writes fan fic. It's supposed to be fun. It's supposed to be friendly. If you're one of those withered souls who looks for opportunities to rain on everyone else's parade, get lost. We don't need you. Criticism should be constructive, plagiarism should be utterly foreign, and you should never poke someone just to see if they bleed
(the above list was copied out of Raining Ink's profile)
You are a Don't Fuck With Me Seme!
Serious and to the point, and sometimes bordering on the sadistic, it takes a special breed of uke to satisfy your needs. You tend to be anti-social with little patience for most people. You need someone to challenge you and push you to your limits, and then be able to take your intense reactions, which possibly involves rope and sensual torture. This is what makes the Badass Uke the yin for your yang, as you're the only one able to put them in line and satisfy each other.
Most compatible with: Badass Uke
Least compatible with: Dramatic Uke, Innocent Uke, Clueless Uke

I wonder if real authors ever go and read the fanfiction written about their works to see what their readers dream up. I wonder if they would be impressed by some of the stories, I know I would be!
