Introductions!

Hi, and welcome to Rainbow Fiction! We're a relaxed writing community for original fiction. Our local theme is colors as the names of our challenge lists, and the prompts for each are related somehow. You can find those over in [community profile] rainbowlists.

This here is our introductory, getting-to-know-you post. We'd like you to comment with the name you want us to know you by, your pronouns, and a bit about you and your story. We're interested in your story background and your characters, and we'd also like to hear about your writing philosophy. Do you write for fun? To work toward the goal of getting published? A way to interact with other people? Like to read other writing and connect that way?

Anything you'd like us to know, go for telling us here. A special welcome to members, new or old, participating in [community profile] getyourwordsout. YES YOU CAN DO IT.

I'll get the ball rolling here.

I'm Kelly (pronoun is "they"); I happen to be a mod, but more importantly, I'm a writer. The universe I write, Polyfaceted, is shared with [personal profile] sarcasticsra and [personal profile] geena. We're in the process of backing up everything we posted elsewhere, which we're lowballing at 600 pieces.

Polyfaceted is the story of a very, very large family (nineteen kids with one father, though several mothers). The siblings are the focus; sixteen of them, plus the wife of one, are our main characters. Our supporting cast numbers somewhere around five hundred currently, though that does include one-shot characters. The family happens to be an Italian-American crime family. They are certainly not Mafia, and they are a literal crime family--the family runs things, and anyone who is not related and works for them is a subordinate.

I write because I must. When I don't write, my depression multiplies a hundredfold. Writing is my major creative endeavor. Having it changes everything: my ability to focus, my way of thinking, my attitude, my demeanor. To that end, not only do I write PF, but I have four ~novels~ in progress, as well as occasionally participating in fandom. I don't take myself too seriously as a writer (though I would like to be published), though. I do this because I need to, because it's fun, and because I like to think I'm good at it. I have multiple disabilities, and this is my escape from that.

Hello everyone! I'm Kat, and I love to write.

My main story, and the only one I'll be posting here, is titled In The Heart. It's a sprawling family epic with romantic, literary and LBGTQA themes, as well as occasional pirates. You can find out more about it at its archive journal, [personal profile] intheheart.

About me: I'm a 23-year-old cigs gendered woman (so standard female pronouns, please). I'm one of the four mods here. I like horses and books. I write because I can't not, because I have all these stories in my head and need to get them out. I write because I have stories to tell, and otherwise I'd be a horrible liar. I write because I enjoy it, because it's an escape. I write because.

I'm very pleased to meet you all!

Hello! I'm [personal profile] shipwreck_light. I go back and forth between which initial I use to sign things as is, so we should probably stick with [personal profile] shipwreck_light or SWL :X. I use female pronouns, but I accept others every day at work.

I have been writing for twenty years and only got to be kind of OK at it last Thursday, by which I mean March of 2011. It has been my dream since I was small to get published. I'm currently sitting on three novel drafts, one of which weighs ten pounds and can be used to kill scorpions.

I was raised on trashy sci-fi and fantasy novels, so that is what I write. I tried to be all literary at one point in my life, but that's just not what's in my blood. I still read literary things, but writing them is just not for me.

The story I'm aiming to present I found as a fragmented outline under my bed. The dust bunnies say it's at least five years old. I made some notes about taking it in about five different directions, and with this comm, maybe I can actually do that instead of confining it to one narrative. And that would be sweet!

There are assassins and parrots in it.

Writing is my passion, but I also bead and play with dolls and drink too much coffee.

Hi! My name's Jess, and like Kat and Kelly, I also love to write (I feel much more confident about writing than speaking aloud, even, because I am very soft-spoken and everything is rushed and garbled.)

The story I'll be posting here is The Tenth Sage (working title). The short version is that it's a coming-of-age story that's also a love letter to wuxia (kung fu) and fantasy. There's epic badassery, some romance, but mainly about two girls thrust out into the world who are trying to find their place. It's archived at [personal profile] ironplumblossom, so please friend if you're interested!

My preferred pronouns are she/her/hers. I've been reading since age three, and love writing more than sleeping, and I love sleeping. I want to make the Tenth Sage a webcomic, eventually, and I feel the stories are a good way for me to test out what works and what doesn't. Writing has kept me sane throughout so many hard times in my life, and I feel like it's where I truly enjoy the whole labor of it.

[personal profile] dark_puck 2011-12-30 04:00 am (UTC)(link)
Yo! I'm Dark Puck, or just Puck. Or Pux. Like everyone here, I love to write. :D

I write in a variety of universes, but I suspect I will be cribbing mostly One For Sorrow. I could, however, be wrong.

Preferred pronouns are she/her/hers, though I will also accept "they" and permutations thereof.

I'm looking forward to hanging out with y'all! :D


One For Sorrow - It is, at its core, the story of a young man who reaches the lowest point of his life, and then claws his way back to the top. It also has magic, weredingos, ravenweres, a girl who chills with two ghosts, and a girl who is touched by a higher power.

I have a story very similar to this. It doesn't have magic or any of the rest, though. I'll be interested in reading yours.

I'm Sara! Another one of the mods here. Cis female, so the standard she/hers pronoun set is appropriate. Nice to meet you! :D

I apparently like to make things complicated, and in that vein, I've currently got four active canons open (possibly five, but let's not go there for right now!). The biggest one, and the one that takes over my brain all the damn time, is Polyfacted. Kelly mentioned it in their intro post, which is handy, as it saves me from having to concisely explain it. =P Currently, it's being archived at [personal profile] corlioni, which we'd be happy to add people with if they're so inclined. :) (The archiving process is very much a work-in-progress right now, however, just to forewarn you.)

I also have Kansas City, 99 Cents, The Sun From Both Sides, and Time Running, which are fairly different, genre-wise.

Kansas City is a future dystopia wherein the government has taken to selling off cities and states in response to a growing economic crisis, and a shadowy underground uber-religious organization is attempting to take over the country.

The Sun From Both Sides is a kind of literary romance, with a focus on two polyamorous relationships and the struggles they face, externally and internally.

Time Running, my newest story, is something of a sci-fi kind of thing, involving a world where manipulation of time is possible and there just may be someone trying to take advantage of that fact.

These three stories are archived (almost--still transferring the last of TSFBS) at my original fiction journal, [personal profile] sarcastic_ink. Feel free to subscribe if you'd like; I'll grant you access right back. :D

Writing, for me, is just...everything. It's fun, it's how I interact with many of my friends, it's how I feel like I've accomplished something. Indeed, if not for M*A*S*H fandom back in the day, I wouldn't know any of my closest friends. I'd love to be published some day, but even if I never am, I know I'll never, ever stop writing. It's just so much a part of me, and so important. I could never give that up.

I'm El, also known as shadowsong ^^ cis female. Hi everyone!

I have...a lot of different things I've worked on, but never finished for one reason or other. A couple incomplete nano projects (two fantasy, one...kind of science-fiction. It involves Lucifer and intergalactic politics, so I don't even know what to call it), a couple of historical fiction projects I'm working on, including one about Judas Iscariot, a couple things that started as fanfics that I'm trying to rework into original things, and a part of a science-fiction world I wrote one story I'm really proud of in. I have no idea exactly what of those I'll be writing in, maybe a bit of everything.

I write because...it's something I've always done. Even if most of what I do is still in the "plotting things out" and I don't actually technically write as much as I should. But I'd like to do that more actively, and I think this community will help, the way a couple of fandom communities have.

O Hai Gaiz

I'm Thai, and although I'm female and prefer female pronouns (she, her, etc.) I shall happily respond to either as long as it's obvious that, you know, it's me that yer talkin' bout. (I've been mistaken for male both IRL and online, so I'm fairly ambivalent towards it all.) I also go by Cabbage, Cabbage-Marco, Merry, and That One Weird Person, but Thai should usually nab my attention. Hi, y'all. (I'm Texan. Sue me.)

I have two or three stories I'm going to be working on here, all of which have some sort of tie to fantasy (I grew up reading fairy tales and chasing brownies in the back garden) and feature romance in some form or another, as I am a Big Sop and have a leaking sponge of affection where my heart should be. My primary stories will be Blood Princess, the angst-ridden and hopefully-not-as-terrible-as-it-used-to-be tale of a royal Roc. I cling to this story like an obsessive fangirl and weep soft tears when inspiration deserts me. Currently, I have gone through seventy-eight boxes of tissues and - oh, oops, there goes one more. Someone find my muse and beat her up for me.

My... second primary story is the novel I attempted for NaNoWriMo (interestingly enough, BP started out as a prequel to a NaNo attempt of ages past). It is, currently, titled Tempus Transit, more informally known as the Untitled Clock House Project, and oh gosh you guys I don't know where I'm going to go with it but there are wizards and magic and snow harpies (or, er, their equivalent) and androids and faeries and mechanika that predicts the future and basically everything that little me ever wanted to have in an adventure, and the main character's name is based off of a beautiful Eliza Rickman song and if I weren't on a computer with terrible internet because mine has given out I would find the song and link it. Also it's 1 AM. What am I doing writing this right now.

The third story I will be working on is rather pretentiously titled The Dim Reflections of a Distant City, heretoafter referred to as Distant City or The Story Thai Never Works On, and is what I would call a really terrible idea born of my desire to write overly flowery descriptions of other worlds. I like doing that. Almost all my stories will feature or be set in other worlds. It is basically the story of a girl and her imaginary friend, and I somehow managed to make the moral "never ever grow up" even though I totally didn't mean to? Someone get me a flight to Neverland stat. This story won't have as many updates as TT or BP, mostly because the characters are very evasive and refuse to tell me anything about what's going on with them.

I wrote a long thing once on why I write, and I don't feel like finding it now. It is, as I mentioned before, 1 AM, and I should be sleeping. I do sort of remember the general gist of it, though. I started writing when I was ten, because I saw books and I read books that I loved and I thought, I want to bring books like these to people, so they can read things that they love, and I've been trying to write for my age group ever since (although, oops, that's sort of been failing). Over the years, however - and I don't want to sound melodramatic - writing has turned into a release for me. It's an opportunity to escape into a place where I control everything, and even if bad things happen, I can make them right again, because this is my world and these are the choices that I make; that's why, maybe, I set almost everything I write in worlds where I make all the rules. I write because it frankly keeps me sane, and without writing down all the ideas in my head would just make it explode and that would be a terrible mess to clean up, I think, my walls are white so it's not as if no one will notice the stain. And I write because, honestly, I don't know what I'd do without it.

Wow that wall of text was super-dramatic.

Well I guess I failed the prevention of melodrama.

Sup guys.

(Also okay I'm going to bed now I am getting up in nine hours what even.)

I am Rue! Also female, so I am a she/her/hers type of girl. (And very much a girl; I may be 23, but I am not a woman. I'll be considering myself a girl when I'm 40, just you wait.) I also answer to delight, pd and Zet, which is short for Azetidine. [personal profile] azurelunatic is Azz; I am Zet.

My real DW is [personal profile] delight; this is my writing journal. (You can add both if you really want to, but if you want me and are looking to add, go for that one. If you want to read the stuff I write, you can add this one.) I write … um, a lot of different things. Everything I do is shared with my boyfriend, who has been my writing partner since I was 16 and my boyfriend since I was barely 18 which means we've been together approximately forever and therefore have about a thousand universes and over a hundred characters that we write in.

I'm a writing for fun person, not a writing for publication person, by a long shot. (Actually? I hate the act of writing. I tell people all the time that I hate writing, and I do totally mean it. I don't like writing. I think entirely in images and snippets of conversation and montages, set to music and all, and so the act of translating my ideas to words is horrifically painful. I do it anyway, because I love to tell stories. I practically live for it.) Therefore, while I have sets of characters that definitely go together, I don't really have projects, so I don't have names for them. My work (our work, really, I guess) is all about the people and their stories and their lives. When one tale ends, another one's going to start. We balance a LOT at once.

Some of the groups who tend to hang together have informal names based on location, and I'm sure if there's any sort of story index this time around (we both had a brief flirtation with Runaway Tales and did our best at that, but then stopped for various reasons) they'll end up listed based on that, but I also use tags in my journal based on the name of the character so that's really the easiest way to try to follow anything, if anybody wanted to. Most of what's up on this journal I'm really not all that proud of, to be honest. My best work is locked at [community profile] psalloid, go figure. My style flits around A LOT. It tends to depend on the character.

What I create (because honestly "write" is kind of cutting out all of the oral creation, doodling, collaging etc that is incorporated into the same universes and ideas) is generally along the lines of being mystery, romance, spy novel, urban fantasy, thriller and slice of life all at the same time. I'm completely incapable of describing more detail without wanting to cry, because it's so expansive and I'm not doing all that well mentally right now. We've got worldhopping secret agents and their rescue group co-workers. Everyday college students who stumble upon dead bodies and end up involved in the middle of a war between a radical environmentalist group and the government. The Elements (Air, Fire, Shadow, Water and Earth) themselves and their mages. A fetish club that is more inhabited by magical creatures than some of its members realize. A lot of stuff with criminals, including a group of Robin Hood-style criminal mages who are totally the good guys. Talking dogs. There are a few posts that actually explain my worlds better in the journal itself. I actually am not a big fantasy person, but he is and drags me into it and claims I do a good job with it! So okay.

Sometimes I fall into first person, and it's dangerous, but actually now that I link that I realize it is something actually on this journal that I actually like!

I'm very tired and making a giant messy ramble of myself, aren't I? Well. Hi there.

My name is Rue, I kind of write a little bit of everything. My specialty is awesome female characters; I do it in spades.

[personal profile] kay_brooke 2012-01-01 05:22 am (UTC)(link)
I'm Kay or Kelli, ciswoman, and I have several different worlds that I write stories in. The two I'm currently focusing on are:

1. The Myrrosta, with stories based around a fantasy trilogy I've been poking at for several years now. The canon is mainly about Merrus, whom is believed to be the prophesied savior of his people...maybe. Merrus is voting no, but those prophecies are always so cryptic and open to interpretation, aren't they? The stories revolve around Merrus and the people in his life.

2. Unusual Florida, which is a sort of modern-day science fantasy thingy whose canon I still only have a vague outline for. Basically, it's about three families who meet each other during one summer at a resort in Florida, and how the events of that summer set the course of the rest of their lives. Super powers and time travel may be involved. Right now I'm just enjoying writing little scenes and working out the characters without worrying too much about the actual story. I have some other WIPs I need to finish before I can really dig into this one (but I'm thinking this will probably be the main canon I'll be writing around in this comm).

And I actually kind of hate talking about my own writing. :( My public writing can be found at [community profile] skylar_town. Feel free to take a look at what's there, and join the comm if you want.

I avoid giving out my name online so let's just stick with Meeko as your pronoun for me. As for the other pronoun references, I'm still trying to figure that all out what you mean...

I have 2 original fiction pieces, one is partially posted elsewhere (working on reorganizing here on DW). It's called Port Jackson. It originally started as role playing character in an original game someone had made some time ago but my friend and I loved our people (a husband and wife duo) so much we decided to make it into a story. It's about a young married couple who try to make it on their own in a tiny sea-port community. Jason, the husband, is a local police officer, and Elsa, the wife, is a literature/drama teacher at the nearby high school. Her parents died long before and his parents are a handful to say the least. As they try to start a family of their own, they realize it won't be easy (all attempts fail) and resort to fostering needy children, eventually adopting one abused little girl.

The other original fic is Mullens Creek, written with my good friend Sean. It's not posted anywhere yet but we are 16 chapters in. It's about a recently discharged Marine returning home to a small dusty rural town where the only fun thing to do is get drunk on the lake beach and skinny dip (well for teenagers...) His ex girlfriend is a doctor in town when he comes home, but had moved on to an abusive relationship that eventually ends and she gets back together with the marine. That's about where it's sitting now. Eventually he is going to be recalled and she discovers a few things while he is away and manages it with the help of his family and her parents).

Hi, Meeko! We mean if you prefer to go by "she", "he", "they", or a different pronoun.

Both your stories sound really interesting, Port Jackson in particular. I'm a sucker for family-life stories like that. I'm looking forward to reading what you have!

malapropism: a roughshod drawing of holly (jade 'n bec)

[personal profile] malapropism 2012-01-01 03:10 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm Malapropism, and I answer to feminine pronouns. I write because I'm too afraid of the alternative. I really like fairy tales, film scores, and morally ambiguous characters, and have never finished a story longer than 9000 words on account of being easily distrac

I've got three canons, which are:

1. Battle For the Sun, which is a high fantasy story set in a world where vampires are plotting to steal the sun's favor away from humanity, and the only person in a position to stop them is in their power.

2. The Lethean Glamour, which is set in the same world as above but a thousand years earlier, and focuses on two women unwillingly branded by the Goddess of Fate and the two scientists who just want to end the war with the Draconians.

3. Down By the Water, in which Jemesk Graymarch, whose memory erasure operation took rather more than planned, must remember what he lost and who he can trust before tragedy befalls the city of New Kaddar.

Hee, your first paragraph. Nice.

I'm particularly interested in Down By the Water--how did the memory erasure operation work? I'll be reading to find that out.

hello! i'm erin! i prefer female pronouns. :3

i'm a very lazy and unmotivated person, and i guess that's reflected in every faucet of my life - but especially my writing. for example, my main canon, she vanished, has been in the works for six years! i started on it when i was 14 or 15, and at the time i intended to write something that mixed two of my favorite things: dark fantasy, and social commentary. the story revolves around a homosexual teen shunned by his family, his incidental mishaps with soul devouring genies, and the consequential disappearance of his younger sister.

i do certainly write for fun, but i admit it's been a long cherished dream to get published! i sadly can't say i'm as passionate as everyone here, but when i saw a promotion for this community on someone's reading page, i thought that perhaps my motivation and enthusiasm could be sparked!

i suppose i'll also note that when i am writing in a "professional" setting, i do capitalize! it's simply quicker for me for communication purposes to let it drop when i'm just discussing something. i also use emotes/smilies a lot in my personal speech! i feel like it helps convey the intent and emotion behind what i type. i hope i don't get on anybody's nerves! :x

Hi, Erin! Soul-devouring genies are something I haven't encountered before, and they sound really interesting.

I hope you do get sparked by the community!

sinjin: (TEE HEE)

[personal profile] sinjin 2012-01-03 05:24 am (UTC)(link)
Yoyoyo. I'm Sinjin and I'm a RaTs refugee. I never really posted much there for varying reasons and personality conflicts were kind of an issue. Isana lured me over so here I am. :3

Pronouns are of your choosing. 99.9% of the interbutts thinks I'm a guy when that's not so. So I don't mind the 'hes' and 'hims' when I've got girl bits. Female pronouns are okay too. I'm 32 going on 12 or 5 depending on the day. I'm owned by my cats, am a WWII nerd, and collect My Little Ponies. Shuddup. You know they're cool.

Because Isana sort of borrowed my universe for her fairytale AU on Iron Plum Blossom, I'm going to be sharing that here.

The story in question is Americana Fairytale, my Camp NaNoWriMo novel. And you can have the lovely blurb from my blog:

Since the beginning, it’s always been tradition that the princess marries the prince and they all live happily ever after. But what if the princess doesn’t love the prince at all?

Taylor Clement is an odd duck in her Ever So Perfect Family. Just… How can you even compete when your older sister is the latest incarnation of the Best Princess That Ever Princessed also known as Snow White? What exactly do you do when your fairy godfather is a bit of a cynical reject among all the pixies and is a Ken doll sized version of Jeff Bridges?

On her ever so perfect and every so very traditional wedding day, Taylor takes matters into her own hands and leaves her prince at the altar. She decides she’s going to go in search of her own happily ever after or if it’s all a sham in the end.

Taylor’s companion on her noble quest to find happiness is Corentin Devereaux. Likewise from an enchanted lineage, he is not the most perfect and noble of heroes. A penniless roustabout and obsessive about keeping lists, Taylor gets more than she bargained for when with every seven days he loses his memory. Is he penniless just because he never left himself a note on where he left his earnings? Just who is in his enchanted family tree?

Only way to find your happily ever after is to find yourself.

Into the woods and around the bend…

Americana Fairytale is a young adult romantic comedy for people aged 16 and up. The story contains light language, and adventure related violence. Yeah. So this is going to be fairly clean and appropriate for anyone. :3 AF is also a Roadtrip Story and part of the charm is stopping at the most kitschy tourist traps. I've worked in the Largest Ball of Twine and Carhenge. I've got ideas for the various Paul Bunyan statues to be a council of elders kind of like Tolkein's Ents. And Smokey the Bear is indeed real with fire worshipers. I'm still figuring out how to squeeze in the Corn Palace. No really. There's a castle covered in mosaics of corn nibblets. Google it. I'll wait. >3 Oh, and it includes a nod to the Japanese Magical Girl genre. Yeah. It's pretty speshul. XD

I write for the goal of publication and rarely share my work online for that reason. My philosophy is if I don't write, I'm not a writer. My ultimate pet peeve is people saying 'Oooooh I'll write that novel when I retire, when the kids move out, when I quit my job, when I walk the dog, when I wash my hair, when I mow the lawn...' etc. Because frankly, I have a shelf life like the rest of us. And when Joe Schmoe finally gets time to write the next great American novel he'll find another excuse to put it off.

I write in my car, I write before my college classes, I jot notes for the stories in my classes, I write in the shower, I write in checkout lanes, I write in restaurants, I write at the gym, I write in waiting rooms, I write in my sleep. I don't write in front of the TV because that would just be silly.

My point is if I can find time to spit out my daily 1k wordcount what's stopping the next guy?

Also I'm not as huge of an asshole as my journal profile sets me up to be. Honest. I'm very friendly and laid back. :3

Name preferred: leiamoody (because that has been my go-to name everywhere...except here, because I did have a journal with that name, but deleted it, and now I need to buy back the name, which I can't afford just yet).

Preferred pronouns: None, because I don't identify as male/female/human on most days

Stories: I have two that I've been working on over at RATS, and could probably continue over here. They are as follows:

1. Maybe December--The unfolding nearly May/December romance between Allyson Randolph and Jamie Kennan.

2. The Future Book--A series of diary entries written by Kelly and Croy Randolph-Palmer to their daughter Eva.

I have another WIP that I would like to begin writing this year, but I don't have a concise summary for it yet. It's called "Phantasmirrora" (a word mix of "phantasmagoria" and "mirror"). It's a weird tale involving a world accessible only through mirrors that is controlled by a dark mummified mage called The Summoner. There's splitting of souls, etc.

Why I write: Because it's the only thing I have to keep me going in life. Like a few other people here, I have anxiety/depression; my condition is severe enough that I have been out of work for years, pretty much unable to do anything practical out in the world, and now it's impossible for me to find a job, etc. So writing is the one thing I can do that I have some control over, if that makes sense.

(I wasn't invited by anyone, I just came here after bumming around dreamwidth looking for original fiction communities. Hope I'm not invading...if I am, let me know :)).

Hi,

I'm Sage. I'm female, so feminine pronouns are fine, but I'll answer to anything but 'too late to eat'. ;) I'm a formerly published author who spiraled into a deep depression and stopped writing completely for nearly eight years now. I'm hoping that this community will help me get back to writing original fiction so I can hopefully be published again.

I've not settled completely on a story or universe yet though I suspect I will be working on background materials/character development for either a paranormal universe or science-fiction universe I've been attempting to create for some time now. I won't actually know what I'm writing until I start writing it.

Like leiamoody a bit above me in the comments, I stumbled across this community while searching Dreamwidth for interesting stuff.

And more sci-fi. I'm so looking forward to not being the only one here who writes that. Besides, that the world needs more of that in general.

[personal profile] ce_jour_la 2012-01-09 05:02 am (UTC)(link)
Salut! I'm E--twenty-something cis-female, and while I go by standard female pronouns, I'll answer to/not be offended by any other ones. I've been writing for as long as I can remember, and whether or not it's any good, I do it because it's sort of like breathing, automatic and just there. Writing keeps me sane, gets me through the harder parts of life when little else can. Though I'm hoping to one day be published, I assume I'll be writing for the rest of my life even if I don't; no matter how much of a headache it can be, writing remains fun.

In fair warning, I post sporadically, though I write frequently. There are currently two novels in progress, each in its own universe. One, labelled the Oracle 'verse, is a huge international espionage-ish piece focussing on a potential security breach and the return of the world's most prolific serial killer. The central cast numbers fifteen (yeah, I know, it's on the large side), and I think I've lost count of the supporting cast. I'm currently on the third draft of the first half, and the second is still in progress; there's the expected amount of chaos, a bit more than expected twists and turns, and its share of black cop humour.

The second, the evystina 'verse, is the least developed but the one that's seen the most public light. Originally, it was my countermeasure to the ridiculous amount of research for the Oracle, and while I'm still working out where it's going and what its foundation is, it's securely high fantasy. I'm trying to work around the cliche of the long-lost god concept, with varying degrees of success. There are a lot of kickass women and earth magic, and the rest of it is still coming.

Away from the ink and paper and keyboards, I'm a large collection of things. I'm a twelve-year equestrienne; figure skater; photographer; scholar; editor; linguist; recreational shooter; voracious reader. I'm a student of forensic psychology, ethics, and english literature, and if you think too hard about how all of these things work together, it's confusing.

I am a huge, huge fan of stories with ridiculous amounts of characters, and I'm also a big fan of international espionage and things relating to serial killers, so this Oracle 'verse of yours sounds incredibly awesome.

Welcome! I hope you have fun here!

[personal profile] clare_dragonfly 2012-01-10 02:39 am (UTC)(link)
Hi, I'm Clare! My pronouns are ai, i, e, sot, lu, wu... oh, wait, you wanted the pronouns to use for me in English? In that case she and her are my choices ;)

I write in a lot of worlds/stories, any or all of which I may be using for the prompts here. They are listed, along with an explanation of each and links to all the stories I have posted on Dreamwidth, here, but I'll try to explain them briefly to you! The Wasteland is the one I got the pronouns from; it's one of several worlds that I've created languages for, and it's a post-apocalyptic fantasy world. Arite and Tovran is low-magic (possibly no-magic) fantasy mostly created as another excuse for languages, where the Tovrans have invaded and tried to crush the Arite language and culture. Atash is, um, another excuse for a language, and is also fantasy, with priests and priestesses as magic users and healers. Chatoyant College is urban fantasy, the world where my online serial novel is set. Extranormal Crimes is also urban fantasy, a division of the FBI, and I'm working on a novel in that setting. Garthier is a dystopian steampunk-ish city ruled by mages and priests. The prison planet is my only (current) science fiction setting, except it's fantasy too, only the characters don't know it yet; they're all political prisoners who have been sent to this planet so the government can get rid of them. Sefadare and Kunidare is a very low-technology, no-magic setting; the Sefadare are farmers and the Kunidare are nomadic goat-herders, but they are brother societies (literally).

Whew. Well, I write because I don't know how to not write, except that it would probably hurt. I am definitely aiming to get published, and my eventual goal is to make a living with my writing. And I love to read other people's stories! Looking forward to it! Oh, and by the way, [personal profile] kay_brooke sent me here :D

Hey there, I'm Resa. Like Thai, I'm female but not particularly attached to gender. Female pronouns are fine for me and I'll try to keep track of your preferences. There were moon landings and rotary phones when I was a little kid, so I'm officially middle aged.

I write SF, paranormal and nonfic. I write for the worlds and people in my head that need to come out. My life is darker and colder when I'm not writing, so I think I need to write. I am interested in being published. I've sold a couple of short stories and a bunch of nonfic.

So. Um. ~~Waves Hi~~

Hi. I'm Nichole. I write Wonderlife over at RATS and have made a journal for the stories here at dreamwidth. BUT - I want to try some new stuff for this community.

Surely Someday follows the everyday lives of a group of people, some of which happen to be supernatural in origin. Simon: a pissed-off werewolf, Warren: a vampire, Maggie: a. . .well, no one really knows what she is, Andrews: Maggie's caregiver, who may or may not be having his life sucked from him by Maggie, and Henry: the Author Dent, who really just wanted to get her degree in peace.

Addictions the story of a misfit bunch of people. After all getting kicked out of their different support groups, they form their own. It follows this misadventures and their days.


I plan on posting both, if that is alright.

Yo! I'm Katie. I followed [Bad username or unknown identity: shipwrecklight"] here. :D Female pronouns are what I'm used to, but I honestly couldn't give a rat's ass, since pronouns are about the furthest thing from my mind. As long as I know I'm the one you're talking to and all. A simple "hey you!" would suffice.

I don't know if I have a writing philosophy as such. I just love making things/people up and blathering about them. Nor do I really know how long I've been doing it. It only occurred to me to write this shit down when I was in my teens, but I've been making up stories for as long as I can remember. I have a very owly body clock, and the only way I could deal with reasonable childhood bedtimes was to lie there in the dark and tell myself stories for hours. I would like to publish some day, but we'll see what happens. I don't specifically write for that reason. MAKING STUFF UP IS FUN, OKAY!? :P

As for the might-be-published thing in question? It's described in my user info as "a novel about a physicist and a mechanic and a dead guy." And that is, pretty much, exactly what it is. But that isn't what you'll be seeing here, exactly. What will you be seeing? Basically, a collection of b-sides featuring the characters and settings from that project, mostly backstories and AU tomfoolery. It might not all make sense without the context of the main story, but I'm sure that you'll all be able to get to know everyone after I post a few things.

I mostly write sci-fi-ish stuff, but it's a very subtle and slice-of-life interpretation of sci-fi. Basically, everything is completely average and banal, until you notice that there's a big fuckoff crater in the middle of North America that hadn't been there before, and there's a guy walking around who is mostly dead and meets all the technical qualifications for cyborghood. In general, it amuses me to depict normal life in futuristic and post-apocalyptic settings. It makes me happy.

When I'm not writing, I like to read (mostly non-fiction, mostly about science), trawl through second-hand shops and flea markets, take long walks (to either the library or nowhere), watch anime and random movies, collect rocks, and play video games. Basically, I do Geek Things. XD I also have a special place in my heart for grunge/90s alt rock in general, so I spend a lot of time digging up random 20 year old music to listen to. (Some favorite bands of mine are Hum, Pond, Nirvana, Hazel, and The Screaming Trees. You know, among others.)

...Aaaaaaand I think that's all you need to know! I have nothing to post at the moment, but I will soonish, so, you know, it's coming.

[personal profile] leia_solo 2012-02-27 11:35 pm (UTC)(link)
Hello I just joined after finding this place through my network page. Nifty little invention that network page is!

I go by Destiny online and offline. I don't mind being called Dee either. I'm a 21 year old Black cis-gendered female living down South. I love to read and right now I'm in a historical romance kind of mood. But I love trying new genres. I've been writing since I can remember and it's very therapeutic to me. I had to write journals two times a day when I was in the hospital for the first time over a period of 15 days. I hated it at first, but it really made me open up more and start caring more about my own being. Oh and I go by the female pronouns haha!

I'm currently writing three different verses. The main one I write and my favorite by far is The Mondian Chronicles. It takes place in a alternate France. Right now the story is focusing on Elisabeth, but I want to write about all the members of the Du Bois family.

Hi!

I'm a bit late on the game introducing myself. My name is Alex and my perfered pronouns are ze/hir. I'm 24 (almost 25 now, god I'm old!)

I've been writing for as long as I can remember - I had a full novel written when I was 12. I remember working the entire summer on that novel. =) Writing for me, at that time, was a huge release for me. It was what kept me sane before my first depression hit me full-force.

I write as an escape from they everyday world. I seem to have to be in a certain mindset in order to write (read: depression)...hence, why I haven't posted anything yet.

Um, hello *waves shyly*

I go by blossomdreams, but you all can call me Blossom. I'm 22, female, and prefer female pronouns. I had this account for a while and I had no idea what to do with it, so I'll make it a writing journal. I'm in college in education. I like books, notebooks, pens, anime, manga, manwha, Korean dramas, comedies, and anything that can make me laugh.

The three stories I work with is Pleasant Surprise: A story about Adam, a Fire Demon, and the changes he face after meeting Zero, a Dog Demon with a missing memory.

Fixed Dreams: A story about Tsukino, a woman who has given up many things for her family, especially her little sister, but hasn't spent much time on herself. Her spotlight appears, but will she take it? Or give it up?

Changing Tides: An interracial love story between Helen Robinson and Nathaniel "Nate" Anderson. They've been friends for years, but when things start to change between them can they keep up?

I also have a few new canons I want to introduce here. Such as one about a princess set to marry a prince and discovers that he was a mysterious stranger she helped out once.

And another one about a college student who's life change when he finds a guy passed out on his doorstop with white wings. He's even more surprised when the guy wakes and explains they were lovers in a past life.

So I'm hoping to get that off the ground. ^^

Why I write? I write for fun and hopefully making money off of it one day. I write because it's the one thing to help me stay stable throughout a lot of major changes in my life. I've been writing since I was seven years old and I honestly can't see not doing it. I even learned how to write with my left hand in case something happens to my right and I can't write anymore.

I didn't write for a year and half while RL gave me the biggest load to deal with. It was so weird to have so many things in my head and no way to express it. I started writing again and I felt like myself. Writing helps me express myself when I'm too tongue tied in RL. Writing helps me deal with my anger, my sadness, my anxiety, and when I think I don't truly matter in the world.

Knowing that at least one person out there reads what I write be it an essay, fanfic, or even original fic makes me smile. I also love reading the wonderful things people come up with!

So here's hoping I can get over my nerves and start writing!

Hello everyone! *waves again*
