Additional information: —
FAVORITE FICS: Welcome to the Underworld by Con.template, Conversations Between Us by Solangel, Banana Pancakes by Solangel, Disloyalty by I^am^me, and Neverland by dearskye.
FAVORITE WRITERS: I definitely ‘stalk’ and read everything written by: adurian, Rey, and I^am^me
MUST READS OF YOUR TIME: I haven’t been around too long, but I would suggest any of my favorites.
GUILTY PLEASURES: JaySica [dotdotdot] ahahah. Um, I really like the whole best friends into lovers plot. Arranged marriages. Flowery sentences and imagery. I love the ‘cliché’—which is used to point out hackneyed plots, but I think the word has been overused and misused itself. Formatting that includes: the font courier new, pastels, no visible faces, soft pinks and grays. Psychologically unstable female leads. & Completely and insanely hot and desirable male leads. Who can say no? =P
LINE/SCENE FROM A FIC & why: “I’m having a heart attack.” I am terrible at remembering lines, but this line is unforgettable.
CHARACTER(S) (limited to 3-ish characters) & why: Yoon Jaewon because he was the first gangster that I fell in love with, Kwon Taehyun because he was the second gangster that I fell in love with, and Choi Yoori because she’s a kick-ass female character. [disclaimer—in reality, gangsters and bad boys/girls are not my preferred friends/lovers/acquaintances. Lol. =P]
COUPLE (just one! – I know it’s hard but ^^;;v): TaeRi

To writers, don’t stop writing because you feel like no one is reading what you have to share. If you ever need a reader, send me a link and I will be more than happy to read ^^. To readers, don’t be afraid to close your eyes, click on a random link, and read. Don’t let a pairing or a gasoo or the word ‘overrated’ stand in the way of a wonderful story. To all writers, keep writing, and to all readers, keep reading and supporting. Soomp! fanfics are timeless; it’s not just a phase, so don’t ever stop supporting and/or stop posting. :)
fancracked: Explain what fanfiction means to you in 10 words! :D
coolcoke.: Fanfiction is the temporary release from stress and reality.
fancracked: I briefly touched on this topic when interviewing Freda but would love to hear your response too. ^^;v What is the lure of gansters in the fic world? What do you think compels us to write about gang life? Some people have argued that writing about gang life glorifies it… what do you think about that?
coolcoke.: Gang stories usually (not always, but usually) involve: a genuinely sweet guy (and good looking guy) despite his ‘bad boy’ image, an innocent girl who female readers and writers can relate to, and the drop-kicks we wish we could use on people we didn’t like. This scenario doesn’t happen every day. I think the attraction is because it’s so rare to ever hear about a ‘good and sweet’ gang leader and it’s so rare to hear about a ‘good and sweet’ gang leader dating an ‘innocent’ girl, which is why we write about it. It also has this excitement factor; this desire to be invincible and almost immortal. However, I don’t think writing about gang life glorifies it. There are differences between nonfiction and fiction, and I think readers can decipher those differences. (or I hope they can lol. Don’t be like that Twilight fan who told the world she was looking for her vampire boyfriend because Twilight says hot and sparkling vampires exist…)
