def. a female writer since 11/16/02, dubbed herself as Kaoru (and as Oru by Lily Maxwell the Dark Angel), and headed off to university as of fall of 2007
Hello, bonjour, konnichiwa, "ni hao", what will you! We thank you for stopping by here. =)
Here you will find stories that centralize around animé and some movies - such as Yuugiou, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Lord of the Rings. Who knows, maybe we will get into another fandom and start writing about that. A piece of advice before you continue reading: here you will find a lot of stories with yaoi/shounen-ai - which is boy x boy - so if you are against it, please don't flame. We have already informed you of the consequences of clicking my stories. Know your limits, beware of the consequences. But if you have no problems, carry on and pretend we never said anything.
(And yes, you have read correctly - "we".)
picture perfect; I spy a pretty picture!

news&updates; what's going on?
Apr. 18 » Just did a massive upload of the rally drabbles from the last upload until now. orz Very sorry for all the alerts if you keep me on subscription!
Jan. 21 » Currently taking part in a rally drabble with my friend, so there will be two drabbles out each week! Um, this week, it was Solitary Freedom (for Devil Survivor) and Spousal Material (for Sekaiichi Hatsukoi).
To see 2007 to 2011 updates, click here.
about yours truly; who're you dealing with and what have you gotten yourself into, dear?
Umm. I suck at writing biographies, really. I'm Canadian, 23, and want to become a forensic scientist in the biology field? And I have a passion for all kinds of music (maybe except country...) as well as an avid Puzzleshipper? I tend to write and read Yami/Hikari pairings in general, although the occasional Seto/Jounouchi one will sneak in too.
So as I've said before, I've started writing ever since November 16, 2002. It's been a really long time, now that I look back and think about it. Obviously, I've fallen in and out of fandoms, taken hiatuses, because of school and Writer's Block. I do, however, attempt to write whenever the plot bunnies bite. I'm just...slow?
I sincerely apologize for all the unfinished stories, like Cinderella in Yu-Gi-Oh! Style, Ski Trip, Feeling Sporty?, Love Me Forever, and whatever else I've forgotten. I will try to wrap them up, since CiYGO!S is only one chapter away from being finished; ST is 2-3 more chapters to go; but certainly no guarantees on FS? and LMF. (sighs) This is why, I write one-shots more often now, because it doesn't require an update afterwards.
love makes the world go 'round; get on my good side

thank you; shout outs
Thank you to ALL the authors and authoresses out there who put me on their Favourite Authors List and Author Alert List, and who bothered to "fave" my stories! Another thank you to ALL the reviews you guys have given to my stories - I really appreciate all the time you guys took, even to write a short line, to read through the chapter and provide critique. I'm always looking for ways to improve, so I thank all the constructive criticism some of you have given me!
yami no ichigo's little corner; quick, everyone, hide! it's my sadistic other half!
I beg your pardon? Sadistic? Guess where and who I learned THAT from. (insert evil grin here)
(clears throat) I should introduce myself, shouldn't I? I reside in the Sennen Watch, and I suppose I'm the yami, and she's the hikari... although sometimes I wonder if it's the other way around. Haha. (ducks as Kaoru throws something) I'd like to be called Kouichi, as it is shorter and more convenient than the other long one I had before I closed the account. It went like Yami no Meji...something. See? It's long!
On Kaoru's account here you'll be able to see some stories of mine, although I mainly focus on movies, like Lord of the Rings.
in closing; but it's not goodbye
Well, that's all for biographical sakes. We hope you enjoy our stories, reviewing would be nice and extremely appreciated.
