twitter account! →
stay updated with Time Vault through twitter! (: —- the second part of Sooji’s interview is also up.
interview: naomi, on crowd reception and writing
naomi: Fanfiction (when I first started writing...) was so much simpler than how it is now…
fancracked: So when exactly did you start branching out into writing and how has it grown more complex? ^^
naomi: Mm... after my initial story I stopped writing until I got into high school? and I guess it use to be simple in a sense that I wouldn't be SO concerned with what other people thought of the story, say I would be thinking of inserting this joke in a chapter, I'd run it by my friends...we would laugh… and I would write... but after just being in the fanfiction community for a while you start to notice certain trends and what not and at the time...I was so pressured into following those trends.
fancracked: Ahh the seriousness that comes with writing and criticism at times!
naomi: haha~ exactly! During my first story I was pretty content with people going "LOL! cute chapter!" but… something happened, I can't remember what changed but I started feeling more greedy as an author :-( I wanted to write something...deeper? Something I guess... that I would be more proud of.
naeyomi asked: shin mina~ the ice princess mary sue with long black hair and pale skin :D someone should write that~~

clarification on "commentaries"
they’re basically free form/free response commentaries on whatever topic of fanfiction you want to touch on. i’m open to anything under the sun (: just play nice (enough) :P ideally i’d like the commentaries to be 400-600 “essays” but really … you’re at liberty to do whatever… it doesn’t have to be in the form of a paper/article/essay ^^;;...
FANFIC YEARBOOK~ (aka looking for contributing...
First familiar face: MARY SUE According to Urban Dictionary, the definition for Mary Sue is as follows: An original character (fem.) in fanfic or an original story, usually on the internet, who is far superior to all other characters. She is typically beautiful, intelligent, kind, and in all other ways “perfect”. She usually serves as an important part in a pivotal plot...
interview: sally, on roots and humble, fangirly...
sally: I didn’t start with kpop but I feel like it changed my life LOL I stumbled upon Soompi the summer I discovered Winglin. I don’t even know if anyone remembers Winglin anymore. I don’t even know if it’s still around but Winglin was this really old site with mostly cpop/Chinese actor fics on it. fancracked: HAHA no it is ! (: http://www.winglin.net/ sally: IT IS?!...
interview: Sooji, on kpop forums of the past
sooji: In 94 there was only one English based kpop forum on the internet. JUST ONE lol fancracked: Whoa! Can you remember the name? sooji: Korealink. I’ll never forget that. When HOT debuted in 96 Korealink created a forum for them too, and that’s where everyone went for almost a full year and then it crashed and we learned how to make our own forums. At the time, about 8 of us went and...
fanfic reality moments
You know how it always feels like no matter what, fics could never be real? I mean, okay… by chance you really did get to observe (or be part of) one of those insanely crazy love squares (octagons!) in middle school when the whole homeroom liked one another. Or maybe your best friend happens to be the kick ass martial arts type—the kind of person who’d stick up for whoever s/he...
