Hello, Shonengirl here! I'm the writer of Fanfic/AWildBadficAppearedCommentaries on DeviantArt, and you may know me from there. I'm not exactly a gamer, but I like Nintendo games, especially the ones represented in SuperSmashBros, and am into Fire Emblem and Pokemon. Generally, I like filling out characters and imagining how they would interact more than actually playing the game, which most of the time I absolutely suck at. I also love history, geography, and international politics, which is why you may see me poking around Hetalia pages; itís kinda similar to how I experience most games, I donít watch the franchiseís media, at least now (I have seen clips of the show and some comic strips though, and from what I saw there itís actually pretty funny), but something about it draws me to it and I like seeing what people do with the idea and characters more than anything (in this case itís more the concept though). Well, please check out the commentary; fans are always wanted.

I am also really into Music/{{Vocaloid}}, and partway in the Franchise/EvilliousChronicles fandom, partway because Iím not that well-versed in it. Well, please check out the commentary; fans are always wanted.


** One of my major ones in terms of stuff I see on the internet, however, is OOC-ness, whether for the sake of humor, manipulative angst, some yaoi/yuri fantasy or because of lack of research. The way I see it, you may as well use OCs if you aren't being loyal to their character. The "OOC BECUZ FUNNEIHH!!" really grinds my gears since I see it way too often. The only exception is if you have a damn good reason for it; maybe you think the character could have been written differently, or want to consider how something would change a character. I would actually like to read something like that, and Iím thinking of playing around with the Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia characters myself for this reason. And there are surely many people who decided to write better versions of [[Literature/{{Twilight}} Bella Swan]] for example, and I appreciate badfic rewrites a lot. But again, most of the time thereís no real reason to do so, and as such no real reason to be using those characters. And I've seen way too many commentaries which make them OOC in the opposite way; as in, make them as bland as possible, in a format where you should be exploiting character quirks and their unique personalities. If I see Sonic, Pit, Fem!Robin or Palutena, I'm expecting things to be bursting in snarky/trollish goodness, not extremely bland and unimpressive. And no, references to their games do not cut it.
** For things that actually matter, there's animal abuse, anyone saying animals are to be exploited, environmental pollution and people who say it's okay, stereotypes used seriously, those who try to be offensive just because and to be ďEDGEY LOLĒ, genocide deniers (because oh, I see them a lot like you wouldnít believe...), stupid Alt-right wingers and nationalists, stupid Uber-left wingers (though for some reason I find [=SJWs=] to be more comically insane than genuinely terrible), and general ignorance on issues being used as evidence; one of the reasons why EncyclopediaDramatica still angers me is more because I'm ticked off at their sheer stupidity and hypocrisy that actually being offended as they claim. And polarization in general is like a frustrating, Never-ending Ness of dramatic irony playing out in real life.

* {{Bifauxnen}}: Apparently I look like a guy to some people. Or [[YoungerThanTheyLook a kid]]. Or [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs a young boy]]. Though I get mistaken for a young girl more often recently. Itís probably because I donít fuss over my looks a lot, especially since I donít have time in the mornings for stupid hair brushing.

* GoshDangItToHeck: I like to do this; cussing sounds immature, why not use InherentlyFunnyWords in place of them? I might use bleeped out sweats for comedy occasionally too. So if I curse ever, uncensored, [[OutOfCharacterMoment you KNOW that you've managed to really tick me off.]]
* TheIdiotFromOsaka: I'm not stupid, I'm pretty intelligent, if I say so myself. But I can be kind of brash at times.
* {{Tomboy}}: Yeah. Quite a bit. Itís something Iíve grown to be proud of, actually. Especially since gender norms are followed by pretty much every girl around me even in an international school, this is Japan after all. It really marks me as an American, lol. So people telling me to be feminine, or hearing anime or game characters talk about ďbeing feminineĒ ([[Franchise/FireEmblem for fluckís sake, you are SOLDIERS! Who the flick cares if youíre feminine or not! Hell, you have even LESS of a reason to be feminine here than a civilian! Your job is stabbing people!]]/Yea yeah, Iím sorry that guy offended your fragile wittle Japanese Girl feelings. What are you getting so weepy about?! Itís not like he broke up with you, you crybaby!), tends to annoy me. Iím not even an SJW, I hate those people, itís just the way I am. Though Iím actually not a fan of sports at all.
* VerbalTic: More of a typing tic, but I tend to use semicolons quite often.

* WeaknessTurnsHerOn: This Trope is me. XD Iím single, gentlemen! /slapped/ But yeah, because of this and my aforementioned tomboyishness I tend to have a soft spot for MasculineGirlFeminineBoy dynamics (as well as why AllGirlWantBadBoys is a slight personal pet peeve. I didnít even know that was normal young female behavior for a while. Though I can see the appeal in one who has a sad FreudianExcuse and TookALevelInKindness), and itís likely why I like Gender Inverted Tropes, which [[AuthorAppeal will probably show itself every so often]]. I could probably make a pretty good, not BookDumb BumblingDad (Mom), lol.

** Oh, and ItsPopularNowItSucks. As a fan of Disney/{{Frozen}}, I know this pretty well. And due to being a fan of WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter (and seeing some of this with the Pokémon anime, which I should note is a canon that Iím not a huge fan of, but can see that Gen 6 was a jump in quality through how others talked about it), Iíve also grown to absolutely hate people who use really old criticisms to bash someone or something, even after the creator or show or game or whatever in question remedies that problem ages ago. If you want to criticize something, actually criticize it in its current form. Or criticize the work and the creator at the time specifically. I still mock older badfics sure, but Iím mocking the badfic and the creator AT THE TIME it was written, not who the creator is now if they have improved; like being shown an old journal and going ďLol, you were such a cringey edgelord back then!Ē.

* EloquentInMyNativeTongue: You know how I said my English is way better? Well, yeah... if I consider English my ďfirst languageĒ, since my first word was (apparently) ďappleĒ, though I speak Japanese at home, I could be considered a downplayed example. My Japanese is... pretty mediocre for my age. It can get incredibly frustrating trying to express myself in Japanese, but not being able to come up with the word for something or not knowing how to describe something, which means if you ever hear me speaking in Japanese, youíll likely hear me peppering my sentences with GratuitousEnglish in place of words or concepts I canít convey otherwise (on top of a bad case of MotorMouth and butchering of the pronounciation of ďsĒ, and depending on how early it is since Iíve woken up, possibly worse). It makes me sound stupid, and itís a bit embarrassing, but Iím planning to work on it.

The way I see it, you may as well use OCs if you aren't being loyal to their character. The "OOC BECUZ FUNNEIHH!!" really grinds my gears since I see it way too often. And I've seen way too many commentaries which makes make them OOC in the opposite way; as in, make them as bland as possible, in a format where you should be exploiting character quirks and their unique personalities. If I see Sonic, Pit, Fem!Robin or Palutena, I'm expecting things to be bursting in snarky snarky/trollish goodness, not extremely bland and unimpressive. And no, references to their games do not cut it.it.
** For things that actually matter, there's animal abuse, anyone saying animals are to be exploited, environmental pollution and people who say it's okay, stereotypes, those who try to be offensive just because, bandwagon haters of otherwise decent or okay stuff, and general ignorance on issues being used as evidence; one of the reasons why EncyclopediaDramatica still angers me is more because I'm ticked off at their sheer stupidity and hypocrisy that actually being offended as they claim.

* GoshDangItToHeck: I like to do this; cussing sounds immature, why not use InherentlyFunnyWords in place of them? So if I curse ever, [[OutOfCharacterMoment you KNOW that you've managed to really tick me off.]]


* AsianAndNerdy: I'm Japanese; as in, actual full Japanese, not a Weeaboo. I've spent 13 years in the States, though, so my English is actually better, though I can communicate fine in both.
* BerserkButton: The one that comes to mind now is Yaoi fangirls. Especially the stupid ones, and those who scream that a character is gay because he (or she in the case of yuri) often hangs out with the same gender or is HeterosexualLifePartners with someone. Oh, and those who make fun of "lesser" franchises in Smash Bros too, such as Fire Emblem and Xenoblade. It got old. Really quickly.

Call me ObliviousToLove, but in most so-called HoYay or ShipTease moments, I only see a very close, beautiful friendship between these two people. And in general rabid shippers annoy me with their ShippingGoggles, me being one of those few teenage girls who don't feel the need to ship everyone and everything.

Hello, Shonengirl here! I'm the writer of Fanfic/AWildBadficAppearedCommentaries on DeviantArt, and you may know me from there. I'm not exactly a gamer, but I like Nintendo games, especially the ones represented in SuperSmashBros, and am currently into Fire Emblem and Pokemon. Generally, I like filling out characters and imagining how they would interact more than actually playing the game, which most of the time I absolutely suck at. Well, please check out the commentary; fans are always wanted.
