Hello all! I'm Marianne, but you may call me Mari for short if you prefer. (I don't mind.)
I love writing, and first got into it while I was nine. I do poetry, fanfiction, and some roleplay writing with friends on the side. I'm quite booked on it now, and more ideas for an original novel have yet to come to mind. I found out a while back that I'm great at writing exciting, scary stuff. I'm one of the friendliest people you'd meet in person, and my dark side comes out through a lot of my fiction. I started to call it My Creative Darkness.
Currently, I've returned to writing this really
intense, emotional, and funny (in places) Death Note fic, titled Crawl
--after a slowiatus of two years. I started this other one, with a really good concept called Collide
first, two years ago. Then, I found this awesome story on fanfiction.net, "God of the Machine", by The Carnivorous Muffin. Very well thought out and described! It's believable, and the developing bond between the original character and Light as they become friends to the interesting twist of what L does is just wonderful.
This fic first caused the appearance of a premise bunny I wasn't sure I could make room for, so it would give birth to the sinister plot bunnies a twisted death god would want to cuddle. It wasn't until I found a song ("Watch You Crawl", by Red) that made me decide to write it. (It's such an interesting coincidence that the word collide is in the chorus of the lyrics of that very song. Or, had this been a part of the premise bunny's plan? :-O Wow, what a sneaky and clever critter! XD It knows everything
It's a great challenge, this story. It's a bit hard, because it gets really emotional. Wow, Light Yagami being seriously angry is terrifying. My own character's fears, paranoias, and resentments are written out realistically. I've been managing so far, but I hope it doesn't get too tough to write later on! The comic relief should help, at least a little.
Once in a while, if I'm in the mood, I do freestyle poetry. Most do not rhyme (because I learned it doesn't have to), and there's actually one I wrote and started an actual song for. I do my own music, mostly on the PC. Carcassonne Overview
is one I'm stuck on though. It's just so much to do and I got stuck, so it's been on hold for a while now. It's not the poem itself, but the music composition I've come into trouble with... It's a cute and geeky song project I won't entirely abandon though!
I'm overall glad I found this community. It looks awesome, and I think this community should help me not have the Death Note fics go into another 2 year slowiatus again. (Collide is popular on FF.net, and in time I feel Crawl might get more hype, if I keep up with it...) I've also befriended a member, and became buddies with kalloway
before that. :D I wouldn't mind getting to know more of you.
