Author has written 25 stories for Prince of Tennis, Kyo kara Maoh!/今日からマ王！, Junjō Romantica, and Sekaiichi Hatsukoi.
I always love to write stories and imagine things. Although I admit that my writing skills aren't that superb I'm trying to improve my flaws. I love books especially inspirational ones. Stories are tools to make most of us realize what's happening in reality. When I read, I'm always amazed on how writers/authors are skilled enough to make their works very appealing. There are a lot of things that I realize just by reading books just like valuing friendship, trust and sort of stuffs. Some may find it childish but I don't. I think even if people are old enough and independent I think some still couldn't value friendship and trust. Aside from reading books, I also love music. Music is also art right? Just like writing, music is filled with passion. I always listen to classical music whenever I'm stressed or pissed. I play the piano although most of the time I'd rather read fanfics and books. I stopped taking piano lessons but I could still play. The thing I hate the most is reading notes. I can't read notes that fast.
I discovered FFnet when I was fourteen? or more like thirteen? from my best friend. I found it cool to post fanfics because in fanfics you meet people/fellow readers and reviewers who share the same interest with you. Although, flames at first hurt when you receive them but when you think of the bright side it will really help you to be better. Whenever I reread my previous stories especially the first ones I almost laughed at the plot and the way it's written. I could point out the mistakes in grammar and also the plot isn't 'that' good. Up until now, I'm still not much confident about my writing skills but I'm trying to improve in every way I could. My problem is most of the time I write stories out of a whim. It's like 'just go with the flow' or 'write whatever you want'. Lately, after reading a very good and well-written Kyou Kara Maou fanfic I felt like I also want to write a story with a very planned plot. And thus that's how my story "Cursed Love" was born. It may not be very 'well-written' but I will try make it good. I've planned almost half of the story and I think it's good. I'm still on the verge of picturing how the story will end.
Recently, I've been deleting a few of my old fics while the others are placed up for adoption. It's just that I'm not really in the right pace to continue them anymore. So instead of abandoning them in mid-air I decided to let others adopt my original ideas. Writing is something that also depends on your mood and interest. I started fanfiction as early as thiteen? or fourteen? I first wrote a fanfic when I was fourteen. The way a fourteen year old writes is very different to how I write now and also my interests changed over the last two years. Also, for academic reasons I am now a College student so that's why my work load in school is way much greater than when I was in High School. Time is very valuable to me now unlike before that I used to slack off in my studies. University life is a way more serious life than I expected. I am so dedicated to make my grades high especially if I'm aiming for scholarship. (I do hope I could attain one. Even though how much I review in Botany, I still suck at exams.) Those stories certainly are a part of me! Whenever I reread some of them I laugh on how shallow and immature I was before. Those stories reflect on the things that I thought and pondered when I was younger. Anyway, I do hope that my decisions are right.
PRINCE OF TENNIS
Tennis Match of Love (RyoSaku)This is the very first fanfic that I ever completed. When I read it, I always laugh on how I view the pairing RyoSaku as a lovey dovey couple. I always thought of love as fluff and sweet stuffs before. I was too immature when it comes to these things. I'm quite proud of this fic despite of its flaws because this fic became my first stepping stone into the fanfiction world where proper grammar and creative twisty plots are a must have! No need to delete it since this one's completed maybe two years ago? I kinda forgot. The idea of this story was to use a mere tennis match to start a love affair. It was one of those crazy ideas about 'love at first sight' but what I did was 'love at first match.' Complete
Is She My New Mommy? (RyoSaku) This one is a much later RyoSaku fic. I have absolutely no plans to put this fic up for adoption or delete it. This fic had been my debut fanfic in this site. So far, I'm still in the mood to the plot of this story. I started this when I was in third year High School. Compared to my other stories, the plot of this one is more comprehensive and somehow the change between Ryoma and Sakuno is kinda difficult to write. It's also difficult to imagine Ryoma and Sakuno acting up as parents to a child. At the later chapters of this story, you will read that Sakuno's starting to shed away that 'shy girl' image she had back in junior high. You would actually read her teasing Ryoma at random occasions. The first chapters were like my old fics, not really well-written and rushed but I promise to make sure that the next few chapters would be better. Complete
Chocolate Mousse (RyoSaku) This one was written out of a whim. It was written just to refresh myself before updating 'Is She My New Mommy?'. This was a failed attempt to an angsty RyoSaku fanfic. I was really eager to write angst but it turned out to be a fluffy comedy. I was thinking that I wrote 'Is She My New Mommy?' with Ryoma and Sakuno parenting a child but I never did let Sakuno get pregnant. Also, I think this one's a payback for Ryoma and his teasings to her. I also did an epilogue due to the request of a lot of readers. I didn't actually expect that! The epilogue unexpectedly had some unintentionally matured content. It's not very matured though. Anyway, this is still a failed attempt to angst. Complete
A Walk to Remember: Christmas Special (RyoSaku)This is a christmas special of my RyoSaku story entitled 'A Walk to Remember' sadly the main story is up for adoption.It's a tribute for the yuletide season. It somewhat acts like a prologue of the story, this contains some of the memories of Ryoma and Sakuno together. It's Christmas eve and Ryoma's birthday, but there's a problem Sakuno can't find a perfect present for him. It also contains their "date" and how their former senpais spied them. Complete
Innocent Romance (RyoSaku) My newest story! I hope you guys would love it. So what will happen if Ryoma and Sakuno met under different circumstances. That was the initial idea in this story. My writing style and format changed but I think that it became better. This story is really special to me especially because I challenged myself to make a better story than my debut story, 'Is She My New Mommy?' which has recently ended. I also made a banner for this fic, please bear because I'm new in using Adobe photoshop.

KYOU KARA MAOU
Yuri Proposed: Based on Earth's Tradition (YuuRam) My first attempt to write a one shot for Kyou Kara Maou. Although I know that it sucks due to the fact that I only watched a few episodes when I wrote this. Whenever I reread this story, I always end up thinking that it's really bad! I never knew that YuuRam is very deep it's like there is really something more to them that can't be seen by the naked eye. It's also like the 'fluffy and sweet' kind of romance stuff that I usually write. It's a twist about the engagement where in there's the appearance of this 'favored future fiancee' of Yuuri's. I still haven't watched the mishap about Elizabeth when I wrote this! So this isn't based on that episode when Elizabeth appeared. In the end, he still chose Wolfram. Complete
The Video Game (ShinouxDaikenja)I wrote this maybe some time after I watched the third ova. I didn't really know how to write ShinDai since I never read any fics with this pairing. I just thought that maybe Murata Ken wants a little revenge! It's implied ShinDai! It's not really a romantic type since I'm not really used to write romance especially with a pairing that I'm not really used to write. Although I think it would be creepy as well as funny to see Shinou playing a video game. I wanted to write about Shinou sucking about something else. The Great Shinou that they all respect! I guess it's Murata's turn to be the prankster this time. Complete
Facade (YuuRam)My second attempt to write a Yuuram. This time it is a multi-chaptered fanfic. Here's the catch! I tried to connect Kyou Kara Maou to music since it's one of the things that I'm really passionate about. It's a story of the engagement breakage, so I guess I really did write angst this time? I have read a lot of fics the pattern Yuuri breaks the engagement then realizes later that he loves Wolfram. This is the same as those stories. 'Love is lovelier the second time around' is also observed in this story. My teacher once said that the quote means that love with the same person the second time around is lovelier. I did a little twist where in Wolfram fell in love with a mysterious person when he heard 'him' play the violin. Yuuri got jealous and decided to track down who's the mystery guy. It turns out that Wolfram, without knowing that it was Yuuri, fell for the same person. Complete
My Angel (YuuRam) My second attempt to write a one-shot for Kyou Kara Maou. This idea came up while I was walking at the mall and I saw displayed photographs from expert photographers. I was having my Christmas vacation at that time. I remembered all the school requirements way back in my senior year and that vacation was a break from the hell called thesis. You know what? The YuuRam fluff just flashed on my mind while staring at those photographs. It was like something told me that Wolfram would really be a good model.The story revolves around Yuuri who seeks for the perfect model for his photography class. The model should be someone or something that is your inspiration and keeps you life going on. Well he did consider his friends from Shin Makoku. Complete
My Angel: The School Festival(YuuRam) This is the sequel of 'My Angel'. A lot of readers demanded a sequel so here it is. The one-shot fic was side tracked into a two-shot. Again, the story revolves around Yuuri who was having his own 'series of unfortunate events'. I always loved school festivals, especially the festives of Japan, so I wrote one. Yuuri's work was posted at a gallery that was open for all, an exhibit. It is a great honor, right? To have your work posted as one of the bests in school but for Yuuri it is a big trouble. He never wanted to let Wolfram see 'that'. His world turned upside down when his mother invited the gang to his school festival. Complete
A Letter for the Maou(YuuRam) It's somewhat like an inter-active fanfic. Where in the reviewers could take part in the story through letters. It's my first time to write an interactive fanfic. It's a gamble on my part whether this would work or not. I guess I'm still not good enough for the idea. I've read these kinds of fics from different fandoms and decided to try for Kyou Kara Maou. It turned out to be well on the first few chapters at the most recent chapter I screwed up! Just read it for your self to know why I screwed up. The fic lacks a few elements and also it's not well-written. I did write this one out of a whim. I admit that this one has a lot of flaws but I still need time to think whether I should continue this or not. In- Progress
The Wimpy Exorcist (YuuRam) This time I planned to write a supernatural fic. This is my first attempt to make one. The image of this story should be light, fluffy and comical but recently the latest chapter that I posted turned out to be a little angsty. Maybe it's bad to write comedy if there's a storm outside. It was like a 360 degrees revolution turn for me when I wrote the chapter with the appearance of 'Russel', the main antagonist of this story. But a good story should have totally wicked villains, right? So that was how Russel was born. Also, some of the ideas about exorcism, charms and spells in this story are purely made up. Some of them may had been based on some animes and movies that I watched. Anyway, I love to write in Yuuri's persona as an exorcist. In- Progress
Cursed Love (YuuRam)This is my first attempt to write an angsty romantic fic. Maybe I was carried away while writing the third chapter of 'The Wimpy Exorcist'. This story is a challenge for me because it has to be well-planned. I've already planned almost half of the story and I have been visualizing the possible ending. I also wanted to give Yuuri a more logical reason for not loving Wolfram aside from the fact that their both guys. I've never written stories with the theme of 'forbidden love' but somehow the plot excites me. I planned a lot of twists in this story. Also, a lot of OC's will also be involved. I tried my best to fit them appropriately to the fanfic and the main plot of Kyou Kara Maou. I liked how Yuuri and Wolfram support each other whether in happiness of sadness. This is more serious than my other Kyou Kara Maou stories. In- Progress
Serenade (ConYuu) My very first ConYuu fic! Honestly, I never shipped ConYuu! I never even planned to ship ConYuu. I am really dedicated to YuuRam but when I tried to read ConYuu stories I realized that this pairing is sweet in their own way just as how YuuRam is. I always say that Conrad is just like a brother or maybe father figure to Yuuri. Somehow, I got used to this idea because initially I am a YuuRam shipper. Recently, I started to like this pairing. I think that Yuuri and Conrad's devotion to each other is also sweet! I love the way that they both long to protect each other. This fic is a tribute and also like my initiation rites to ConYuu love. The idea revolved around Conrad's song for Yuuri which was 'Love Me Tender', I found it cool when I heard it on Youtube. The story also involves Yuuri's thoughts of the different and absurd (for him) customs of Shin Makoku. It really did happen when Yuuri found Shin Makoku's courting traditions odd and unromantic. Complete
Like a Child (ConYuu) Looks like the latest fic that I have now is a ConYuu one-shot. I never thought that I will be able to write another ConYuu fic after 'Serenade'. Honestly, the origin of this idea is a little bit funny. This idea came up to my mind while having our Botany class. You see, our topic were about fruits so our teacher asked us to color the picture of fruits provided in our laboratory manuals. It was fun, especially for us, to reminisce our childhood habits. We talked about how we used to love coloring books and kiddy stuffs. We were all laughing and treated our 'supposed to be' formal lab manuals as coloring books. This idea came up when I thought of my childhood habits and thought of Yuuri. It was weird enough to think of Yuuri or ConYuu while you're doing a pre-schooler's thing when you're already in College. Complete
Trick or Treat (Crackfic)Time for a lighter fanfic aside from angst! I need to have a break from writing angst and romance so this time I wrote a little bit of comedy. It was unexpected to have some hints of ShinouxMurata, that was totally unexpected. I think I forgot to add this one on the fanfic's disclaimer but I don't own the novel/movie 'The Ring' or Sadako. Anyway, it all started with a prank played by two master pranksters. I think you already have a good idea who are these pranksters. Yuuri Shibuya never believed in curses but maybe this time it's time to change his views. This fic was just a random thought in class and a stress reliever while having the final exams. Complete
Subtle (ConYuu) My very first drabble! I'm kinda proud of it. It focuses on Yuuri and how he thinks of Conrad. I'm not really good with words but I tried to write it with the emotion I pictured in my mind. Lately, I've been transforming into a full-blown ConYuu fan. Complete
Waiting(MuraYuu) I must warn you! This fic is just a random idea from me! This was written just for fun and to fulfill my self-challenge to write a MurataxYuuri story. Also, I experimented on Murata's devious side. He's a little sneaky and geeky but I love him. MurataxYuuri is one of my guilty pleasures! I think it would be fun to think how Murata would steal Yuuri from Wolfram. Although, deep inside my mind... I think this fic is AU and OOC. Complete
You are Mine (MisakixUsagi): My first attempt to make a Junjou fic. I'm not really good at creative description and I know that this fic would need a lot of creativity in writing style, so this one's another challenge for me as a writer. The idea came way back in November while I was having my first ever semester break in College. Anyway, it started off with Misaki being tricked by a loan shark and was taken to be sold to an auction bid. This is AU but I guess it still followed the story scheme of the Romantica couple. I don't really know when I can update this again but I will warn everybody. I may put this one in hiatus because as of now I prioritize my Prince of Tennis and Kyou Kara Maou fanfics. In- Progress
Jaded Memories (RitsuxTakano) My very first time to write a Sekaiichi Hatsukoi fanfic. I'm new to this fandom, the series is still on-going so for most parts of the story would probably be made up. Also, I tried experimenting on Ritsu, I honestly think that 'younger Ritsuis easier and cuter to write. He's shy, naive and not afraid to love. Hehe, as for Takano, well I hope I wouldn't have troubles writing his character. I've always had troubles writing the seme's persona. This isn't my first time writing an amnesia-based story but this one's really different from the one I've written before. In- Progress
