PostSubject: Hello!   1st February 2013, 11:49 am

Hello, everyone!

I'm Miss Tricks - I've been using that name online for the past three years or so (mostly) lurking in the Tower of Time forums. I stopped going on those forums for awhile as activity slowly declined, and was surprised to find that they had been taken down when I went to go check them a few months ago. I found this website yesterday when I searched "Sailor Moon discussion fanfiction" in a fit of pique. I've spent the last few months constantly infodumping on my sister about stories I'm writing or Otaku Senshi or even gushing about the (alleged) new anime this year. XD

I am twenty one years old, and, hilariously, a University burn out. I started University at fifteen years old and went through three years with decent grades before I realized I was in the wrong major for my chosen field - and in the wrong major period if I wanted a job any time in the next seven years. I dropped out for a year to consider my options, and then began to pursue a Paramedic certification instead. I plan to begin hunting for an EMT job later this year (I'm certified, but local authorities don't hire EMTs who aren't twenty one or over, and I only just turned twenty one) to work off what student loans I have before I transfer the hours I have to another University and move on to a medical track.

On Sailor Moon: I've been a fan since 1997 when it was still playing on Cartoon Network after I got home from school. I watched the show religiously, even after the only time slot I could watch played at 5:30 in the morning. I was a very determined eight year old. I found the old Hitoshi Doi site around that time, if I remember correctly, and eventually figured out the Japanese names of the characters I loved. Sailor Moon became my first official fandom when I discovered fanfiction about the time I was ten years old, idly googling Sailor Earth. I love most of the canon pairings in their varying forms - Sailor Moon certainly does a better job of selling their romantic pairings to the audience than Harry Potter ever did. I have a reflexive dislike of Seiya/Usagi, unfortunately, after reading one too many stories that existed solely to bash Mamoru for not being as good for Usagi as Seiya was. My favorite character is Saturn, though I love all the girls in Sailor Moon (and most of the boys).

I've spent over ten years in fandom, with my first fandoms being Sailor Moon, Harry Potter, and the Lord of the Rings (which I read out of curiosity when I was twelve after my parents told me I couldn't see the movie until I read the books. I had no idea what they were talking about and hadn't wanted to see any movie, so I read the books to find out what they meant. Later, they expressed confusion that I had managed to read the books at all, much less enjoy them as much as I had).

I stopped posting fanfiction for a few years while I tried to reconcile what I liked and disliked in stories and writing with what seemed to be popular opinion. Now I am finally writing again - fanfiction and original fiction. I like stories with old, classic tropes like Mary Sues and time travel and true love. Because I am an unrepentant sap.

I am a fan of everything Sailor Moon. I have seen all of the anime, dubbed and subbed, and have read all of the manga. I have seen bits and pieces of the musicals, but have yet to hunt down any one musical with subtitles to watch in its entirety. As of three nights ago, I have seen two episodes of PGSM and read every Wikimoon article on the show.

Things I currently like that are not Sailor Moon: I like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel despite themselves, Kingdom Hearts, the DC Comics and Marvel Comics universes, the Naruto fandom (if not Naruto itself, the fandom is pretty entertaining), Sherlock Holmes in its many forms, nu!Trek, Jak and Daxter, the Elder Scrolls franchise, Ghostbusters, Final Fantasy I-II, VII, and XII (I haven't played any others... yet), Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Disney and Disney Pixar, Avatar (Last Airbender and Legend of Korra), and My Little Pony.

I have recently read and enjoyed the Rosario+Vampire manga and I am watching Person of Interest.

Um. Have a playful looking Luna?

Welcome, Miss Tricks! I loooove your avatar and thanks for sharing so much about yourself Smile So, what are the Tower of Times forums? And dangggg university at 15, so you're not from America, are you? Also, about Sera Myu, I KNOW I've been to a website that has all of them plenty of times but I can't remember what it was, I'm sure someone else will post after me with the link Smile I don't really watch the musicals so I don't remember what it was. I hope you enjoy it here, everyone is really friendly and I think you'll have a lot of fun with the fan fiction!

Eeee~

The Tower of Time forums were a long running art request hub dedicated to Otaku Senshi fans. They were a fun place to hang around while they lasted.

University at fifteen: I am American- I was encouraged to get my GED instead of going to high school, and was fast tracked into University. I was actually a student at the University before I got my GED as a non-degree undergraduate student because I wasn't legally able to get my GED until I turned sixteen.

Sailor Neptune, I would love for you to PM me the information about Sera Myu, and I'll check out the livestream thread in a few minutes. Thank you so much

Well that's awesome! I just recently talked to WickedRose on the forums who was from Australia and described high school as a place kinda like university so I just thought maybe it was something like that. But that's great, stayin on top of the game

Welcome to GC, Miss Tricks!

Hehe, you have quite a history with Sailor Moon fandom. Since you enjoy the archetypes so much, does this mean you also have your own interpretations of them? That would be awesome to see if you felt like sharing. ^^

What kinds of fanfictions/original work are you writing? And, I am curious, do you RP? XD

I hope to talk to you soon. ^^

Thanks for the welcomes~

I can go on all day about fanfiction topics - or character interpretations, ahahaha. One of the reasons I signed up for this forum as soon as I found it is because GC has such a great little Writing sub-forum, that is not limited to actual writing. I'm looking forward to discussing fanfiction there with everyone.

Mmm, I have a boatload of fanfiction projects - some have been worked on for as long as seven years, on and off. ^^;;; A fair number of stories that I'm writing have been built around one of the worst Mary Sue clichés - the 'Drop-In' Sue. For Sailor Moon specifically, I'm working on a Drop-In Sue who is a fourteen year old girl who lives in Tokyo who wakes up one morning to find out that Sailor Moon has somehow become real - and the girl herself has Senshi powers. Then she has to decide what she's going to do with her powers and her foreknowledge (this starts during the Dark Kingdom arc) without any guidance from magic moon kitties or anyone else.

Another long project is set exclusively in an expanded universe based on the anime, starting three years after Stars. The inhabitants of Elysion and a number of Otaku characters are caught in the middle of the events that will lead to the formation of Crystal Tokyo... and a number of secrets dating back to the time before the Silver Millennium that the Senshi of the future are only uncovering as Chibi-Usa returns from her final trip to the past.

Those are the two biggest Sailor Moon stories on my plate - I also have a time travel/redo story where Usagi, after the events of the first season anime finale, accidentally sends herself and Mamoru back in time to repeat the events of that arc. This is also the only story that counts as a straight up romance. <3

Original fiction wise, I'm working on three individual projects and am assisting in the research for an acquaintance's historical nonfiction novel. I am also editing a horror/crime novel for that same acquaintance. My three projects are long fantasy epics - one is set in a completely original fantasy world (that is admittedly inspired by a number of video game settings), one is a dark contemporary fantasy epic, and another is a contemporary space adventure.

RP... Sad I tried RPing several years ago on LJ, but I am sadly extremely unreliable when it comes to dates, deadlines, and social interaction.

Goodness, that was a long post. See, I said I could go on all day! XD
