The Story Of The Past Three Years Of My Life
My very first story that I wrote was about a girl who went to school. I was ten years old and have never been to a public school. When I posted the story I received tons of negative feedback and not even constructive criticism. This is what they told me.
"I honestly found nothing to like about this story."
"You shouldn't write about school if you've never been to one!"
"Why didn't you research a school then?"
This broke my heart. My very first story and they destroyed my dreams of being a writer. To distract myself I buried myself in things for a charity we work for. I had posters and flyers everywhere until my mom had me through them out because I was driving everyone nuts. And so I distracted myself with other things. Shows, books, anything I could think of. I was content to live with my head in the clouds. Alone. But then I had a dream that changed it all. I dreamed of myself, riding dragons. From that day forward I was not just content to stay in the clouds, now it's where I want to be. I learned everything I could and starting writing fan fiction. But no one even paid attention to those. No one wanted to start another argument. But in a desperate need for friends I enrolled in the school of dragons. I met many other Dragon Riders and started my own team. And this is how my first story that no one liked made me Shamara. However, despite my being happy, no one else liked Shamara. And so I am once again on a journey to find myself. But this time, I'm not alone.
Thank you fellow Dragon Riders, you saved my life.
Hello! I am Shamara30! I am new to the forums but I've been watching and I have read a few fanfics too!

Weapon:A gronkle iron staff that the ends light on fire. It can also split in half the long way to reveal a leather sheet that works like her own version of Hiccup's flight suit.
Personality: when Shamara sees something she has to know how it works. This makes her good at quite a few things because she knows about them.

On their way to the safe house they had built they were attacked by a monstrous nightmare. Sadly Vanessa's mother died protecting her. Ever since then her father has hated dragons. Even worse he blamed her for what happened. He disowned her. While living on the streets she befriended a singetail and named it compass. This made matters worse between her and her father. Now he not only banished her from his life he also seeks to kill her. Vanessa is on the run when she comes across an ally who is also her father's worst enemy. But they cannot know her secret. Everything she had built up would be lost if they knew the truth. She would be cast out if they knew who her father really was.

And now, meet my newest OC!
Backstory: Aly's parents died when she was a baby leaving her in her uncle's care. One day, when she was five, her uncle took her in a fishing expedition but the boat was attacked by wild dragons. Her uncle sent her off in a small rowboat and Aly was never sure what happened to her uncle. After many days floating around(the oars had been lost to the dragons) she fell asleep. When she awoke she found herself surrounded by dragons and a young woman. She learned that the woman's name was Valka and she lived with and trained dragons.
Valka nursed Aly back to health and after that the thought of leaving never entered her mind. She grew up among dragons and even bonded with a yellow and green triple stryke which she named Hunter.
At the time of httyd 2 Aly was on a trip to find more dragons wounded by Drago Bludvist and take them to the sanctuary.
Appearance: she dresses like Valka and had similar hair.
Weapon: stick thing like Valka's.

I've read your first ever story, and honestly, for a 10 year old, it is still better than many of my friends could write today. My first ever story is CRIIINNNGEEE. So, you go!
Plus, there was a few very good constructive criticism in those comments, and people also defended you from that one mean comment. You should look at the positive as well as the negitivite.
I do not read fanfics, mainly because I find them poorly written (although I have stumbled across a few very good fanfics in my life time) and I loose interest quickly. But, that is just me. So, you keep writing! I admire people who can start writing a story and actually hold interest. In m case; I am very good at writing but I quickly loose interest in the story. And when I loose interest, my writing turns sucky.
The Triple Stryke appreciates the love he's getting, but he does not like to be around those who don't learn to wait for him. (Post this on your signature if you agree).

Did you find them all?
Okay but I love this.
Shamara, you're awesome!
You see, I was a little like you when I was younger, except I only discovered writing and reading when I needed it the most. I spent years feeling like an oddball, left out. I'm naturally hyperactive but was never athletic like my friends. I didn't have interest in things like sports and I couldn't draw in the slightest. Not fitting in was never, ever fun, especially because I was so young and antisocial. It was like being a Mandalorian pacifist.
Later, however, I discovered reading and writing. Reading became my retreat and my only company. The characters I watched and read about were like the friends I wished I had, and then I started getting into writing. Now I had the freedom to not only read and watch the characters I held so dear, but create new characters- even worlds of my own! It helped me become the person I am. Though I'm not antisocial any longer, thanks to the meeting of my youth group and the realization I could be me, and not the person everyone wanted me to be, the reading and writing still stuck with me. The characters I loved as friends I still do.
I'm proud of you. You just gotta push past the hate and the criticism and be YOU, not what everyone thinks you should be. It's your writing, it's your story, and I'll support you every step of the way.
And that's all I have to say. Adios!

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....

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.
Proud lover of Skrills and the Berserker tribe!

Back to the Future
(I recently started getting into a show called Miraculous Ladybug. It remains to be seen if it will join my list of fandoms, but for now, let's safely say I am anticipating the release of Season 2. And yes, I'm not sure why.)
Some Facts About Me
1. I am a writer, and I enjoy it a lot.
2. I'm a naturally salty person. *throws salt, but not shade, since I'm short*
3. I write WAAAAAAAAY too much fanfiction. If you know one of my fandoms, chances are, I have a fanfiction on it.
4. I play the piano, the guitar, and the ukulele.
5. I'm completely in love with Dagur.
6. I'm a Star Wars fan but I didn't like the Force Awakens.

12. Surprisingly, I can act. And I have a lot of fun doing so!
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:
If you want to find out what I'm writing, you've come to the "write" place!
(Okay that was awful, I will excuse myself now)
For the Last Time
A HTTYD AU explaining and expanding on the Dragon Hunters' fanon ties to Drago Bludvist. Very spoilery, very emotional, very dark, and very feely. Takes place after the events of Race to the Edge and shows how the Hunters finally go up in flames- through the eyes of their mastermind.
The Quintar Chronicles
Callista Quinn gets an urgent message from her sister in Australia, saying that she's sending her daughter Resa to her in order to keep her safe and "explain" some things. But things go wrong when something- or someone- decides to blow Callista's apartment (and the whole city) up, which, along with Resa's claims of an alternate universe in dire need of Callista's help, sets into motion a course of events that won't be easily subdued.
Aided by a mysterious man called Taurus and his interdimensional traveling system, Callista is faced with a realm of mystical creatures and villains with evil agendas. If there really is another world out there- will Callista give up any chance for a normal life to save it?
In the year 2038, the world stopped spinning. Literally.
A catastrophic event that forces the human race to retreat into massive underground catacombs is so devastating that the world above as we know it is changed forever. Monsters and other creatures crawl out of the rubble. Humans are now subterranean creatures, living underground. The seasons, climate, and geography has been so drastically altered that things might never be the same again.
Years have passed. Every year, a "Sector"- or a district of humans living in what is now called the Underlands- is chosen for the Election. Four teenage villagers are selected to become Searchers; trained explorers who will explore the lands above.
Frederick thinks there's absolutely no way he's going to make it into the Election- nor does he want to. He'd be perfectly content staying below ground with his family and friends. But he can't control his destiny- and when he's tossed into a life-threatening adventure with three other young people, he knows he can't stop it.
The Key of Doomed Souls
Kinda explains itself, doesn't it? PotC fanfiction. A little bit of crazy, and a whole lot of madness.
The lands of Farrador are prosperous and (for the most part) quite peaceful. Wes lives a simplistic life as Captain of the Guard, training his regiment and patrolling the lush and beautiful lands of his home, though they seldom go into battle against the other kingdoms that are spread throughout the world. Instead, they battle monsters and creatures of unknown origins and frightening forms. But one week out of the whole year is set aside for festives- the Midsummer Festival, which not only is the most content and peaceful time of the year, full of celebrating and feasts, but a prime time for things to grow. Crop fields grow tenfold, trees shoot for the sky, and forests seem to expand on their own. It is certainly a time for celebration.
But the night of a grand feast, near the middle of the Midsummer Festival, one of King Mikael's trusted prophets receives a dire warning and a terrible prophecy. These events are closely followed by disaster, and when things go from bad to worse, six prophesied people- including Wes- must set out to brave their dangerous world and stop things from getting any worse.
The Siren's Lament (working title, it's kinda eh, PM me with any suggestions)
Captain Flynn, leader of a well-worn band of smugglers and privateers, is the commander of the vessel the Governess. He was raised on tales of sirens- wolves with the sweet voices of maidens, vixens of the sea. One of them, an ancient legend named Mirelei, has evaded his crew for quite some time. Dubbed the "Siren Hunter" by his crewmates, Flynn is searching for one siren, and one in particular- but he got more than he bargained for.
Flynn soon discovers he's not the only one on the hunt for Mirelei, but soon he begins to wonder if Mirelei really is a vicious creature, like the one that was sung about while he was just a boy. He has to make his decision soon- because if not, Mirelei's life- and his own- might be hanging in the balance.
Well, here's where I put all my RP and non-RP cinnamon rolls. Enjoy.
Eternally under construction, probably, since I procrastinate :D
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.
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.
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...
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.
After watching Family on the Edge:
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.
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!
