A student. Biology major, one of the the most time-consuming majors there are, yay! This stems from my interest in TEETH :D Ya know, oral surgery and stuff. How hard can it be @_@ (Note that I'm probably writing this on no sleep)
An artist (by definition. talent is questionable xD see random link in info box to judge). This probably led to peoples' suggestions that I should totally go into surgery. Except I like picturesque things, you know, being obsessed with crafts and all. Which leads back to teeth. Yup.
A musician. Kind of. So I was kind of thrown at the piano as a kid. But it's pretty kewl ^^ So's orchestra. Speaking of which, the ominous orchestra that appears in my comments as "ominous music" really does exist, you know. I mean, I was part of it once. (TMEA = Texas Music Educators Association. Just one of the many random things I did in high school ;-) )
A writer (you be the judge). While I do oh-so-love teaching others to write spectacular, gloating essays that will make colleges love them, fanfiction is much, much cooler ^^ I have great respect for those courageous enough to throw their writing out there. Just creating something and being able to face the public (especially the internet) is a feat. Actually I think "rabid reader" is a better description for me. But I try to write when I can ;_;
A FANNN! Of a gazillion and a half shows. With Avatar trumping the rest. I need my daily dose of fanart/fanons for all of these.
So put that all together, anddd you get a obsessive college kid who studies too much chemistry, piles on etsy and deviantart requests, reads/reviews/writes fanon, tries to practice random instruments, and of course watches Avatar (and those zillion other unnamed cartoons).
It's a hectic life. Sleep deprivation is my middle name. And it's AWESOME POSSUM! >:D *twitch*
If you happen to want me to edit your fanon, though, ask away~
NOTE: While I do study drawing and may be active in the Illustrator Insignia here, I'm picky about fanon illustration requests. (Details can be found on the usergroup page.) Whether it's a professional drawing or my own scribble in question, I will not give any artwork that took effort to create to those who didn't put the same effort into the writing that it represents. But just talk to me if you'd like to know anything. Fair? :)
Still hanging around my profile? Well, I'm honored! ^^
SO...among other things, I sculpt. A lot.
Minnichi's form of fanart
Because of this, I have a strong connection to deviantart.com, in which I relish in point donations so that I can buy lovely illustrations for my fanon. I try to draw too, if you've noticed, but well I kind of suck in comparison to my deviantart friends, so I'm still happy to go with their pictures instead xD
...Which leads to the part that actually applies to you! (Were you looking for this? :P) I believe that the best fanons deserve the best illustrations (and I mean the ones with this kind of quality). This is different from the little scribbling services you may see from me around the wiki; these pictures are by those who can make a living off of art. A comfortable living. o.o And I'm fortunate to have ways of working out requests with them without going broke. Regardless of my access to professional artist illustrations, however, there's a reason why I don't go around offering them to the whole fanon portal. Anything good takes work! My fanon's main image was won, for instance, by my own pen and paper in a writing contest. The ones that were paid come from the funds donated by my deviantart fans - which took the several years of sculpting practice to make them even want to donate in the first place :P Therefore I'm not too keen on arranging pictures for authors who don't take their work very seriously. Those who do tend to have a particular quality that stands out. Well - basically, don't ask me to cover you for a pro illustration unless you're PRETTY sure I'm obsessed with your fanon. It should be obvious. You know who you are ;)
If you're actually interested in this section, there can only be a few things you're trying to find out:
I'm not a shipper. (Peace and love for all, people! <3) I do prefer anything canon, but that doesn't mean I care about the opposition. However, I'll warn you that I'm getting tired of Zutara fanfics with bad character development... (Convince me ^^)
A:TLA > LoK, and Aang > Korra
I don't have a genre preference for fanfiction sooo you're good to go! (Assuming you're one of those people who may be stalking my profile because I'm behind on your review, but you don't want to confront me directly so you resort to stalking. I know how it works! >:P)
And everyone knows that the Dai Li are the coolest. Everyone.
...And yes, I have personally spoken to Gene Yang via email before, just to find out what happened to the organization after A:TLA ended. He likes them too, by the way. B-)
