I would like to bring some things to the attention of writers and reader.

 

1. Can Myself and other writers please stop getting hate because of our writing styles and how we base it. 

2. I have noticed that not alot of writers write about Astrid and the others as main characters, it's more Hiccup and Toothless. (i can see why tho) ( not being a hypocrite )

 

3. Should I stop my back story? I mean all the hate and not much love.... plus it isn't making lots of sence soooooo.

 

4. If i was to re-write my back story in a differnt way would people read it?

 

Thank you for reading, please reply if you aree or have anything else to say.

Don't stop writing your

Don't stop writing your backstory, don't care what anyone else thinks. There's nothing wrong with having SPaG mistakes(Spelling, punctuation and grammar).

I wish I hadn't given up on my backstory now, because now to anyone who reads my current fanfictions just get really confused.

If you think it doesn't make sense, just stop, look at your story and make a mind map of characters, villains, dragons, places etc. You can also get story planning apps which can help with these problems.

It's your story, you write it any way you want to. Don't care what anyone else thinks of it, it's your Viking, do what you like.

I will read it if you rewrite it.

Thanks,

Inthetardis2.

M'um m'aloo!

Pretty much what InTheTardis said! You're the writer, you can write what you feel like. I spent over 6 years writing things that I knew nobody would ever read but me, and yet it was alright, because I wrote for my own enjoyment and not the enjoyment of others. It's your story, you're the one holding the pen- so to speak. Don't let the hate or influence of others change your writing! It's yours, not theirs.

 

If you are looking to improve, however, I highly recommend studying the art of writing (yes, it's an art). Read other books you may enjoy and note the author's grammar, spelling, sentence construction, et cetera. One of the primary factors of me being the writer I am today was because I was an avid reader even at an extremely young age, and had an adult's reading level when I was 10. Reading literature you may enjoy isn't just fun, it also helps your writing a lot! It's a great way to improve skills.

 

Organizing information can also be a very good idea. I have what I call "plot dumps" and "character dumps"- a place to literally DUMP all my character and plot ideas in one gigantic, messy place. Unorganized though it often is, at least I have information at hand and can keep my plot, characters, and ideas semi-orderly. An online document or even a handwritten journal is a great place to put these "dumps"!

 

But above all, the most important thing in writing is to have fun with it. Writers are given literal freedom; we aren't restricted to the laws of physics or the demands of what others might think or want. We are the masters of our character's fates and worlds, so why WOULDN'T we have fun while doing what we love? We can go beyond all boundaries of the universe if we like, and who will stop us?

 

If you want to write, don't let anything stop you!

Meet Stormy Eyes, otherwise known as Stormy. As a child, she washed ashore Berk in a basket, and was taken under the wing of the Jorgenson Clan. It quickly became obvious that Stormy has pure Berserker tendencies, and most often, they're rather uncontrollable. Really, she means no harm- but running around the school with an axe, especially early in the morning, tends to have an effect on certain students around the school.

When she first came to the School, after encouragement from her clan, Stormy was viewed as dangerous and untrustworthy. She was only a teenager at the time, but she worked hard to make it obvious that she was much different than her bloodthirsty ancestors- though she's more closely related to the Berserkers than she would like to know.

Stormy's first dragon was a Skrill called Hurricane- she raised him from hatching, and the two have been best friends ever since. You might say the dragon and rider grew up together, and as Stormy won the trust of her fellow classmates and dragon riders, she also became well known for her impressive bond with the sometimes unstable dragon. Life was a challenge for a young dragon trainer and a Skrill, especially as a first dragon, but their equally hyperactive personalities soon forged a bond between them, which is something not seen often between a Skrill and a rider.

Now, at the age of 20, Stormy has grown a reputation as one of the most bombproof students in the School, heading up her own strike team called the Valkyrie Riders, and defending her "home" for the past 8 years. In the course of those 8 years, however, Stormy made a shocking discovery, that forced her to keep a deadly secret for a long, long time.

But she kept that hidden for many years, and the only one she ever told was one of the newest teachers to the School, and later, one of her partners in "crime": Eret son of Eret, former servant of Drago Bludvist. But that's another story....

The Valkyrie Riders

We live,

We die,

We fight,

We win,

Together.

 

I've never cared for castles or a crown that grips too tight,

Let the night sky be my starry roof and the moon my only light.

My heart was born a hero and my stormbound sword won't rest,

I left the harbor long ago on a never ending quest.

Now I'm off to the horizon,

Where the wild wind blows the foam,

Come get lost with me, love, 

And the sea shall be our home.

Dear writers: You know when your characters are having a good day, and then you crash their party with an awful plot twist and its SO MUCH FUN? Yeah, the feeling is kind of like this:

 Ruff and Tuff (Ruffnut

 

 

Squiid's Characters

Well, here's where I put all my RP and non-RP cinnamon rolls. Enjoy.

Eternally under construction, probably, since I procrastinate :D

 

Skari

A treasure hunter, a scoundrel, and a grave-robber; can you get much more untrustworthy than that? Well, Skari sure can. Unreliable and shifty, Skari uses his quick wit and charming personality to wriggle his way out of the toughest spots. He has a particular liking for shiny objects and is considered a thief-for-hire, occasionally, risking life and limb (though he's not overly fond of that). Once acquainted with him, you either realize right away he's not to be trusted- or, usually, you realize that much too late. On rare occasions, though, you can break open his heart of stone and find a soul of gold inside...well, I could be speaking literally or figuratively.

 

Lenora

You won't hear much about Nellie on these forums, since I never RP with her, but in the rare case I say something about her, it's probably her superb shooting skills. Mildly terrifying, but if you're on her side, it's quite useful. She's got a lively personality, loyal to a fault and completely, blatantly honest. Though I mentioned her loyalty, it's true she's loyal to one person- her boss, of whom she self-appointed herself his personal bodyguard. Needless to say, he doesn't really mind. Especially since he sort of needs one.

 

Finn

Ah, Finn. Used primly in magic/cyborg/or-anything-like-that RPs, Finn is an interesting case. With the ability to shapeshift into a dolphin at will, you might say his name is apt...ha! Get it? Finn? Okay, I'll leave now. Anyways, he also has a metal arm, of which he's modified to do various things with. And yes, when he shapeshifts into a dolphin, he has a metal fin. It's rather funny. He's a huge sweetheart, which isn't saying anything for his rather bad past, and he likes long swims in the ocean in his free time...

 

Iduna 

Who said the Grimborn boys didn't have any family? (Well, no one, exactly.) I can't really say much about Iduna without giving a bunch of Race to the Edge spoilers, but she's observant, gentle, and quiet; and, honestly, no one exactly knows how she ended up marrying Viggo Grimborn and keeping a close eye on all his operations Beyond the Archipelago. She seriously can be scary if she wants to. Beware.

 

More coming soon! Whee! -dances away from all my impending tasks-

 

 

And here is the best Hiccup gif I have ever found. Enjoy.

oh Hiccup sweetie what are you doing with your face??

A tribute to the fun personality-based choices you can make in Star Wars: the Old Republic.

I have two Sith Lord characters. One of them is sophisticated, collected, a devoted servant of the Sith Empire, and a really all around Viggo-style villain. The other is absolutely insane and defected from the Galactic Empire because they wouldn't let him have a pet Nexu. 

Meet Chayaraa Argos and Tavos Xan, the chaos and order of the Sith Empire.

 

Darth Vader dancing

 

Well, you survived to the end, and now you probably know way too much about me :D The more you know, right? No? Okay. Anyways...

May the Force be with you!
