It must be in the genes....  
So one of my daughters, Megan, the 15 year old, has opened an lj account, fluffys_girl, so she can post her Inuyasha fic, which is here.

Inuyasha is anime (Yech!) but her and her little friend seem to love this show which is an almost direct rip off of the Buffy series.

I must admit that even though it's based on anime (Yeah!), she is submitting a rather well-written story for someone in her age group. She doesn't know anything about sex (*breathes deeply in relief*) so she didn't even attempt to write sex or anything lame like that. And, another rarity in someone of her age group, no Mary-Sue's!

It's just a simple story that's completely written, I must add, just not typed and proofread.

She's also posted at FF.net because that seems to be anime (Yech!) heaven. She'll probably get more feedback there.

I'd never post there.

I hope her first outing is a good one and I wish her luck.

You go Megan!

Love mom.

yay, Meggie!

Chance watches Inuyasha and all of the other anime. It's a rip off of both Buffy AND the classics like Sailor Moon. It's kinda violent, bet hey-at least she is using her brain and creativity.

Good luck, Megan-and remember-your momma's friends are EVERYWHERE, and we will be watching out for ya!

Yeah, I WILL be watching out for her. I went onto the FF.net site to see what the anime fanfiction world was like and I'm not exactly thrilled. There are some really nasty people over there so I'll be watching to see what's going on.

Other than that, I hope she does get good con crit and takes it in stride. She even said flames were okay and I'm glad - that could help her with being gracious about replying to negative fb. She needs to start somewhere.

Still, it's nice to know her mom's friends are watching out for her too.

And yeah, when I first saw Inuyasha, my first thought was, 'that's Spike!' I figured I wasn't the only mom out there who saw these things (I mean come on - in Full Metal Alchemist, they look for the philosopher's stone!).

Go Megan
I do understand about the anime (yech!) aversion. My kids love anime (yech!)and manga and many a dinner conversation revolves around characters motivations, artwork, etc....may I say (yech!)I have even had to sit down and watch almost all of Studio Gibli's work and Hayao Miyazaki work *thunks head in DEEP pain*

Congratulations on your daughters first foray into the world of fanfiction. I wish her the best of luck.

Re: Go Megan
Can I say again, anime? Yech!!!!

I've had to sit through some of Inuyasha and Full Metal Alchemist and let's not forget, the classic - POKEMON!

God - I remember Pokemon cards and Pokemon posters and Pokemon cartoons and the games (both gameboy and N64). I finally thought it was all over until Donovan seemed to show an interest in it.

Help me!

Oh well, at least she's writing what she knows and is not attempting to write porn like some middle schoolers and high schoolers do who have no knowledge whatsoever and it's actually not bad.

Thanks for the words of encouragement!

Re: Go Megan
Pokemon (yech!) ugggg, but in our family the worst was Yu Hi Oh(yech!). Cards and faithful viewing by my son and on and on and on. The only redeaming factor of yu Gi Oh (yech!) was that it pissed off the conservatives hehehehe.

I do think Megan writing is fantastic. My son writes poetry (deep dark *meaningful* poetry...save me from teenage angst *bangs head*)

Re: Go Megan
I don't know the whole YuGiOh story. I try to close my eyes to most anime unless it's being dragged into our house and being watched by everyone.

Poetry, huh? Teenage angst! Oh God! Lemme guess:

I have no future (*woe is me...*)

The world was ruined by my elders (*double woe is me...*)

I am a mutant that will never fit in (*being buried under the amount of woes...*)

That sound about right?

PS - She's gotten one comment on her lj and one at FF.net already - both coherent and positive! Yippee!!!

anime (Yech!)
But Yaoi is hot! *pouts* I don't really read much manga anymore, but there are some out there that are pretty good and really hot. Shounen Ai, generally more sweet/cute than hot, used to be my guilty pleasure. I love hot, drawn gay men!

I'll agree with you though about Inuyasha. It's cliche, and overrated.

It's so sweet how your daughter trusts you enough to share her fandom experience with you. I hope she has an excellent time in fandom!

She just posted 2 more chapters of her fic on lj and at FF.net. She got another positive review and someone put her story on their fav list (and 2 people have put her on their alert page). She's a little let down by the number of reviews so far. I told her to be patient and it will come.

I didn't know what yaoi was until I started looking through the anime FF.net section. I wanted to see what she was getting into. I've only seen some anime porn (mainly with women) and hubby says it hot but he'll stick with real women thank you very much. Most of the teenaged boys who have worked for me swear by anime porn so I can only imagine the way the draw men (very cute men, I must add) would make a female slash lover's dream.

I'll still stick with real men though.

*points to my icon*

Isn't it though? And she's been getting reviews (mainly on ff.net) and her stories are coherent.

I'm very proud of her.

BTW - love that icon! I think every girl by the age of 13 read that book.

I must go check that comm. In fact, that was how I found the retro icon comm was through you.

I just checked your profile and noticed something so funny. You were born 2 years after I read that book! LOL!

It just goes to show how timeless that book really is.

I almost wouldn't mind writing a crack!fic about Justin's puberty years Are you there God, it's me Justin?

Or Ted...
