Favorite genre: I am a hard-core fantasy freak. Anything that has to do with magic I will read. Books are essentially life to me; I have an insanely huge collection, which is why I'm not going to even TRY to list them here. However, some of my favorite authors are Mercedes Lackey, Barbara Hambly, R.A. Salvatore, Elizabeth Haydon, J.K. Rowling, C.S. Friedman, Lloyd Alexander, Kevin J. Anderson, Peter David, Sharon Shinn, Simon R. Green, and J.R.R. Tolkien.

I will be attending Intervention Con 2013.
Fav Anime: I was introduced into the world of anime with the help of my friends, so yes, I have been corrupted. I am otaku, At least half of my fanfiction will be anime related, so you've been warned. Anime's greatest appeal, to me, is the rich, complex storylines and the in-depth, realistic characters. The anime I am familiar with (from oldest to newest) are:

Fav Manga: I read any manga except shoen-ai, yaoi, or yuri. A very mild case of shoen-ai I am okay with because I can pass it off as close platonic friendship, but anything overt and I am gone. None of my fanfiction will be of the yaoi variety. My collection of manga has expended as my wallet has shrunk. The manga I own simple has the number of the ones I've read, while the ones I have read but do not own have the word "read" listed before the numbers.

My FanFiction: Most of my fanfics will be for movies (especially anime) with a few for books, but not quite as much. Here are some general characteristics of my fanfiction so maybe you'll have a better idea if this is something you want to read:
1. I tend to make up one unique and original character who interacts with other characters in an already-made universe. That one character also tends to be female; so far I have not created a good male character, probably because I'm a girl myself and I find it easier to relate to a female.
2. I try to make my stories fit into periods of that that won't conflict the the already written history. Sorry, very few alternate endings or what-if scenarios. I don't like messing with cannon storylines, so I do quite a bit of research before starting a fanfic.
3. I am a stickler for accuracy! I reloaded all the chapters of my Inuyasha fanfic because I'd spelled Sango's weapon "harai-kotsu" instead of "hirai-kotsu." That shows you how picky I am...with my own work. I also hate typos and word errors, so if I find any, you can be darned sure I'll go back and fix it.
4. The names of my characters always have meanings. Once a fanfic is done, I will include a "Glossary" at the end with a list of the characters and the meaning of their names. I always like little extra tid-bits like that, so stick around for those.
5. I am an artist (albeit a poor one) who works with old-fashioned mediums like pencil (I believe at least some people remember what "pencils" are...) I have been experimenting with the anime style of drawing, so I will try to draw pictures of my FCs and post them on http://hikari-katana.deviantart.com if you'd like to take a look. (My OCs are on http://starsister12.deviantart.com.)
Ideas: I used to have a list of all the fanfic ideas I had, but it's far too long now (over 43!). I end up getting fanfiction ideas for almost every anime I see, so if you want to know if I am writing a fanfic for a particular universe, just message me. Chances are it's there somewhere, waiting in the wings.
Thank you everyone who has left reviews on my stories! Those reviews are the things that keep me going and inspire me to continue to work on my stories. Thank you so much for all your support and good luck in your own worlds!
