Hi, L. Cranston here. My username is a clue as to one of my favorite superheroes (costumed vigilantes) in fiction. Like my hero, I enjoy intensity. Intense action, intense drama, and intense horror.
I try to incorporate intensity in all my fiction that I write. This means mystery, adventure, horror, injury, betrayal, suspicion, unjust action, and villains that are real villains.
Who cares about misunderstood wimps that just say they're sorry and everything's okay? That's a not a villain. An accident is when someone steals a cookie and makes someone cry. A villain steals all o fthe cookies, sets fire to the bakery, kidnaps the chef, abuses the chef's wife, leads the authorities on fruitless chases and unsolvable puzzles, taunts the hero, and generally makes you satisfied when they ultimately get defeated. You don't want to see them just give up. you want them horrifically scarred in the climatic showdown and utterly either get destroyed or escape to threaten another day.
Of course, who's good enough to stand up to a villain? Some polite shlub who whines about unfair? NO! Some gritty, powerful, clever hero who risks themsevles for what's right and just! Someone who will take the bullet for the target and then keep going! Someone you'll cheer for, not just smile and move on!
My fanfics normally span from Chip and Dale's Rescue Rangers, a perfect setting for intense action and intrigue. You can find me at the Acorn Cafe (http://www.theacorncafe.org/phpbb/index.php) and you can find much of my work at the RRDatabase (http://rrdatabase.kalaydina.ru) and at Chip and Dale Online (chipndaleonline.com) where my username is the same as here.
I'm trying my hand at MLP:FIM fanfiction because the setting maybe be peaceful but ready to explode with intensity.
My favorite character is Twilight Sparkle because she's a calm, logical person like me. That makes it twice as funny when she loses her marbles and screams at everypony.
I plan to write a sequel to "Gemini in All Things" eventually, but I need to gather inspiration and ideas first. I'm wondering if Trixie should find redemption or sink further into madness.
