About MeHi I'm Gina. Maybe you've seen me in the NT? C:
Some random things about me: My favorite color is red,my favorite ice cream flavor is mint chocolate chip, I enjoy video games (especially The Legend of Zelda), and I love to read and write. I have a boxer named Roscoe, who likes playing, running around, and a being a crazy puppy in general.
Feel free to neomail me. I like to chat if I'm not busy. :)
I finished a story involving two of my pets(Ruby & Violet) and Ruby's petpet, Sand the kepru. (This was my first story to be successfully entered into the NT.)It has six parts. I don't remember exactly how long it took to write.I worked on it over the summer in June and maybe a bit in July. I guess it's a strange story,but I had lots of fun with it. Personally, I didn't like it as much at first;however, it grew on me.[Status: Accepted!Issues 602-607]
I wanted to write about the castle all my neopets lived in and introduce the setting which will likely be a large part of future stories. Sound boring? Don't worry. This isn't an ordinary castle..... Surprisingly,this stayed a short story. I have a tendency to overwrite when I plan it to be short. [Status: Accepted! Issue 608]
I wrote a Christmas special! It was actually just going to be a short story, but the word count kept growing and soon it couldn't qualify as one. It was interesting to write. I did Ruby's story first then the "present time" parts. [Status: Accepted! Issues 624-625] Christmas Issue special: Christmas Pattern Negg
Some friends of mine were doing an awesome self appointed Villain's day issue and I had to join in on the fun! I planned this as a short story.... but it grew into a two part series. I had loads of trouble submitting (it took six times before it was accepted) so I asked some great people to look it over. Finally, I decided to add a third part to complete the plot. Due to the wonderful Droplet answering my questions, I understood what I needed to fix. Thank you, Droplet! C: [Status: Accepted!

This was my first article. I wrote it to participate in our self appointed Hero's Issue. I enjoyed this style immensely and I plan to make a series out of them to have breaks between longer stories. [Status: Accepted! Issue 654] The Hero's Issue Special: Gorix and Cylara Coin
A short story I wrote focusing on Lucky and Storm. I had great reviewers to help me with smoothing out the story. Due to the deadline and (mostly) my impatience, I submitted before I had someone else look it over one last time. As far as I can tell, most people do find it a good read. :) [Status: Accepted!

A red carmariller named Firefly is her petpet. He is protective of his owner and easily jealous. When his emotions are strong, he will glow so brightly that he will look like an orb of light with wings.
Sand,his kepru petpet(a point she will gladly dispute), is a powerful enchantress, who wasn't always a petpet. She likes to be brutally honest and is bitter, sarcastic and can be unintentionally overly dramatic (a point that others would argue)... Although she does not make friends easily or quickly, the ones she does call friends, she is fiercely loyal to. She detests being called "cute" about as much as being called ugly. Physical description:Sand has a light brownish-pink pelt with tufts of fluffy creamy white fur. The symbol on her head glows the same color as her eyes(sea blue-green)when she is casting a spell, but is white when she is not.
Akila is Lucky's Gold Mauket. She is around Lucky constantly and has some magical powers of her own. Akila cannot talk like Sand, but she can use telepathy to communicate her thoughts to those that cannot understand her various petpet noises. Akila is loyal to Lucky, who rescued her from her previous owner and enhanced her magic. She does not like Storm, but tolerates him. Physical description:Most of Akila's fur is gold, but she has black markings: the tips of her ears and tail, the symbol on her head and her wings. Her eyes are a dark shade of gold.
I have optimistically planned to write several stories this summer(or whenever really) for the NT:
[ ] A short story focusing on Ruby.
[ ] A story introducing progressing my pet's main storyline. Violet, Ruby and Sand will likely be the major characters. Projected length- Two or three parts.
[ ] A story focusing on Alfred and L.O.S.E.R.S
[ ] A story focusing on bounty hunter characters and/or Chomp/Owen
[ ] Halloween story. I really, REALLY want to write one because I have a super fun idea.
[ ] A story about one of Storm's pranks gone wrong.
[ ] Something to explain Lucky's backstory.
[ ] Storm discovers his air faerie magic. Chaos ensues.
