    Exactly what you'd expect in a forum called "Introductions"

    Post by Troid on Tue Jun 26, 2012 9:25 pm

    Hello, there. I'm Troid.

    I've been writing for several years now and have racked up over thirty stories I consider publishable, most of which are fairly short but some of which are very long. Unlike you all (nearly as I can tell), I write fanfiction and not original fiction, though two of my most major writing projects are and/or are going to be original. However, I don't think that really makes us any different. Currently I'm juggling five stories as well as a choose-your-own-adventure game run on an imageboard, with about fifteen story ideas sitting on the various backburners in my head and one idea sitting on the primary frontburner, soon to be commenced.

    My writing has traditionally fallen into one of two categories, which are action-adventure and yuri romance (also known as femslash). Quite a difference, I know. For a while I filled prompts on a kink meme (which, if you don't know, is any anonymous community that posts and writes for writing prompts that may or not be porn, depending on the community and the requester's taste), and that broadened my horizons somewhat in terms of genre. I also enjoy writing humor, especially parody. If you aren't into romantic themes (though I assure you, many of my so-called romances have varied backdrops and few follow any traditional romance formula...you'll see what I mean if you read one), then you should at least be able to enjoy my over-the-top action fics.

    I write for fun. I'm here to get a handle on how good my writing is, which is always hard for me to figure out myself (it's not even objectivity issues; I just can't seem to judge), and to learn in which areas I can improve. Critique-wise, I'm probably characterized by "tough but fair." I'm miserable at explaining myself, but if you can figure out what I mean, you should find helpful insights towards improving your writing.

    All that long rambling aside, I'm a pretty low-key person. Looking foreward to working with everybody in the future.

    Hello there, Troid! Welcome to the forums!

    Fanfiction is good for me, but if possible, could you explain material of the series if it's needed to know for the story? Just do something like what Pr0nogo did here and link to some sources to describe things, if it's necessary.

    Romance and action are pretty fun, so I'll look forward to that. You did mention the kink meme thing though - if you DO want to put anything porn related on here, could you put some kind of warning first? I can't speak for the whole forum but I personally don't want to read any of that. Also, I'm fifteen, so it's kind of illegal anyway, I'm pretty sure.

    Good to see you here, and I can't wait to read your stuff! C:

    Thank you! I'm planning on doing just that, so everyone can have decent insight into the fandom before they read.

    I'm not a fan of smut anyway, and I doubt I'll be posting any. So no worries about your underage self being corrupted, heheh.

    Jim, literature is not illegal, no matter how young you are. If you can read Nazi War Stories, you can read Lust of the Moon.

    Also, you're sixteen. How is it that I know these things more than you?

    Second also, welcome to the boards, Troid.

    That's true. What websites say about accessing it is one thing, but reading the material itself isn't illegal.

    Thank you!

    Illegal or not, it's not something I want to read, haha.
