Author has written 3 stories for Naruto.
I can't believe how long I've had this account before uploading anything.
I used to be a big 'Naruto' fan, but I'm still a huge fan of the pairings. NaruHina is pure love, and it's really the only reason I'm hanging on to the series. I also like ShikaTema and SasuSaku. I now only read Naruto, and only because I'm stubborn to know how it ends. But Kishi and I aren't cool anymore after what happened with Itachi -nothappyface- Ughh, Kishi, stop fucking up.
The only FF I can imagine myself writing are pairings in Naruto, maybe possibly Inuyasha, and perhaps Hey Arnold (I will not be judged, that cartoon is boss), but definitely Naruto. And definitely NaruHina.
My Style: I'm the type of writer that doesn't like to give too much detail. Don't get me wrong, I love detail and will elaborate when necessary, but otherwise I thoroughly enjoy implications, hinting at things, and hidden meanings. I like for it to be indirect, and a journey for the reader, just as I like to feel I'm on a journey when reading. There are times when I will beat around the bush or in using certain words. That is deliberate. I'm not afraid to get explicit or raw, but typically stray from that, because most of the time it's not needed. Besides, it's much more fun giving the basis of a situation and letting the reader's mind elaborate on its own. Kind of like the difference in watching a movie and reading a book. The movie doesn't give much room for your imagination to dabble. Hopefully that sounds appealing to you, and I hope you enjoy what you read. That's my aim, after all.
As I am now, with my writing motivation in a vulnerable stage of recovery after years of forced essays and stories, don't expect anything other than oneshots from me. I may be in a particularly good swing every now and then, and create something multi-chaptered, but for the most part, I'm staying low in the realm of oneshots. I will never post a multi-chaptered story unless it is already complete, since I am notorious for not finishing things, and I would never want to put you guys through that. I apologize in advance if I one day end up throwing a dauntingly high number of K's at you, though it's not likely. If I end up writing a bonus chapter or sequel to a oneshot, consider yourselves lucky xD
My Process: Shit, I am such a dramatic person, it's not even funny.
So, my desk is up against my bed (because I have such a tiny room, that's the only way it'll fit, and I'm ridiculous and a control freak, so I can't have my chair facing away from my door). Typically I'll stay at my desk for slavish hours, to the point that my body will creak and bones will pop, trying to siphon every idea out of my head as quickly as possible - however long that takes. Sometimes I'll write the end to a story first, or the middle, or the beginning and end, you get it. And then when I'm satisfied, I'll begin to plug in the other parts and connect it to what I wrote first. This helps tremendously in finishing a story. At least it does for me. Now, sometimes the words will flow out of nowhere and channel through me like I'm an object being used to translate. I love when this happens, because then I don't have to work nearly as hard. But sometimes this sucks, because if I don't get the entire idea out, I'll usually lose it and it'll be gone forever. This happens too many times to me. Other times, I'll get stuck, or the ideas will jumble in my head, or I'm just uncomfortable from sitting so long in my cheap ass computer chair. So, when that happens, I walk around my desk and lie on my bed, usually cuddling my blanket or spooning a pillow. While there, I will play out in my head what I want to happen next. Sometimes (more common than that :/) I go so far as to act it out, still lying in my bed. I've been like this ever since I was a child, so it's not extremely weird to me. Though I get embarrassed at the idea of someone finding out, because it can be seen as being quite dramatic. I'm a hopeless case, really, but it helps me get back on track with a story, and rearrange my thoughts. I'm just cool like that.
And just as a little sidenote of sorts, my writer's motivation is totally a double-edged sword. When I don't feel motivated, I can't seem to get anything written, ever. But when I do feel motivated, it's always to extremes and I feel totally hijacked from my life.. because I can't seem to do anything but write. FML I can't win.
My favorite thing about a story is characterization. I just love the layers in a character; why they do certain things or react to another. Even in PWP, I feel there should be depth to the characters. I mean, there's nothing to enjoy if you can't enjoy the characters you're reading about.
My Genre: You'll find that I'm pretty much a hopeless romantic and love romance, fluff, humor, smut, and other things a lot of people don't seem to. I adore a good fluff/smut piece. I'm a huge sap and an even bigger sissy. I don't like tragedy/drama/angst, etc, because it offends my romantic sensibilities. The only ways I can tolerate those genres are if I know there will be a happy ending, the writer manages to suck me in, or I write it myself. Because if I wrote it, and it doesn't have a 'happy ending', in my mind it does. I will twist it in my head and make it happen xD But don't get me wrong, there really are times in a good romantic story, that moments of drama or angst are necessary to make the happy ending that much better. I'm all for that. But fuck tragedies. Seriously.
I'm sure I'll find other things to say later. 'Til then, chaa
It's been a long while seen I've been up to date with these, but manga-wise, my favorites are The One, Skip Beat, and Kurohime (except for the end...)
But I also like many other manga, such as: Goong, 1/6000 (once you get passed the art, wow), Hana Yori Dango (though that got annoying at parts, amiright?), Kimi ni Todoke, Billion Princess, Billion Girl, 1/3 no Kareshi, Hana-Kimi (Umeda-sensei .. freakin love him), H2O, Koukou Debut, Ludwig Kakumei (really, the humor got me on this one), Midnight Secretary, Parfait Tic (wondering wth happened with this one), S.P.Y., He's Dedicated to Roses, Shugo Chara (Ikuto and Amu, love the chemistry), etc. etc. There are many others, and if you seem to have the same taste as me, feel free to ask if you can't seem to find any other good ones.
