Hey, people! :3 I'm new here, sorta. I've been a member for a bit, a few weeks at most, but now I'm finally deciding to make a newb intro. Mainly because I had no idea it existed until my good friend, Jaywing, told me to make a Newb (she said n00b) intro. So... to my introduction...


I'm a girl who's been reading for a long time. I've read many books, such as the Artemis Fowl series, the first Twilight book (way too sucky lol), and am currently deep into the Warriors Series. I have a Warriors RPG website which is at warriorsrainclan . proboards . com. Jaywing is also on my RPG.
I've been writing for awhile now too. I started to write with intentions of publishing last year, on a sort-of fanfiction on Warriors. It has about 70 pages or so now, and it has different clans and culture and cats than the original Warriors by Erin Hunter.

Your name is interesting. I will have to keep my eye on you.

I'm An Angry Panda. I also love the Artemis Fowl series, and my sisters are madly into the Warriors books. So what do you like to write?

And Edward Cullen is not leet. Definitely. Not.

Welcome, simcreatures. How do you do?
Anywhoozle, you seem like a pretty interesting newb. I didn't really get into the Artemis Fowl series, I didn't even finish reading the first book. But I do remember reading one of them, can't remember which at the moment.

What genre do you write?
How old are you, if you don't mind me asking? I'm thirteen.
How long have you been writing?
Read the FAQs and Rules, the guidelines to critiquing, and remember to ask people if you have any issues with something. You can PM or VM me for any questions. (Let it be known, if you ask me a question, I might answer it in a complicated way. Or I might go completely off topic.)

Hobey-ho, Sim! Can I call you Sim? I refuse to call you a creature.

Artemis Fowl is cool. I read the first...four books, I believe, a while ago. I enjoyed them, I think, but I think they could have been better. I read the first book in the Warriors series when I was in the third grade; I liked it a lot, and I looked about for the rest of the series, but I couldn't find it, so I gave up. xP

Anyway, do answer Simmi's questions. She likes to interrogate people.

I'm not much in the way of fanfiction...I've never written one myself, and I find it strange that people would write a story based on other's people's ideas. But maybe because the only fanfics I've ever seen were pretty crappy. However, I'm sure you've got more taste.

Again, many welcomes be to you.

Greetings, newb-who-has-evidently-been-around-the-block-without-saying-hello-to-poor-little-us! (Ah, I got a kick outta that...)
Welcome!
I'd elaborate more on this, but I must fly!
So long, much grinnage and apples are always good.
Miss Smiley ^_*

PS: And gah! Jay! "Thy"! I never saw "thy" thread. It means "your". Thou is you.

Smiley isn't grammar-obsessed. She's in love with grammar. In fact, if grammar were a man, she'd marry him straight off, and they'd have little commas and apostrophes running about the house, playing fetch with the pet semi-colon.

No, you said "I never saw thou newb thread". It's "thy"! "THY". It means "your", as opposed to "thou", which means "you". What you said was like saying "I never saw you newb thread". *eye twitch*
