Note: Think of Lord Cynic and Mashu as the devil and angel counterparts of the person behind the account. They are not physically two different people, they're personae the moron is hiding behind to justify his weird fanfiction.
Note: Be wary of having us on Author Alert. We're no longer known to have one main media (which used to be Golden Sun). We'll tell you what we can be bothered to write about:
Tales of Symphonia

Lord Cynic: "Fudge me, thanks to my crappy webbuilding techniques you no longer have a stone wall of typing to go through! Actually... you still do. Eh. The website with the majority of my previous info is. Whew, took long enough!"
Website update: 09/05/08 (Updated Couples page)
Note to all readers and reviewers: "As of now, I won't be lenient when demands are made for updates to my stories. Fanfiction writing is not a paying job, it is a hobby. I don't have the obligation to set deadlines and always be expected to follow them. I know I procrastinate a lot, but for Christ's sake, I'm not the only one. Lay off a bit, or despite my current status, I will be taking deliberate breaks. That is all."

Lord Cynic and Anime: He is not picky when it comes to dubbing or subbing. The way he looks at it: Dubbing is good for when he's busy (i..e., writing) and can't pay attention to the subtitles, otherwise he'll almost always watch subbed anime. However, the loser doesn't know what's good dubbing or bad dubbing...
Fanfiction inspirations (compact version)
(no favouritism here - they're all in alphabetical order)
TALES OF SYMPHONIA
"Maiden of the Moon"
General fanfiction information
Genre preferences: Drama; angst; (perverted) humour (Cynic); Humour; romance (Mashu); Action/Adventure (both)
Fanfiction style: Extremely lazy - both of them. Mashu dominates the written portfolio with fluff after fluff after fluff. Cynic occasionally chimes in with a more thoughtful, depressed or dramatic entry.
Reading preferences: Dark themes, angst (Cynic); fluff... fluff... fluff... (Mashu)
Reading turn-offs: Not telling the pairing in the summary (Mashu likes to know what he's getting into as quickly as possible); harems (usually/especially involving the OTPs); grammatical and spelling nightmares; turning monogamy stories into harems/poligomy stories midway through.
Use of Cynic's fanfics is permitted, as long as:
1. You ask him first.
2. You give him at least some credit.
3. You give him the 4-1-1 on the site you're going to post his stories on.
(Cynic refuse to place this at the beginning of every fanfic, so just take his word for it, okay?)

Mashu's top 15 supported couples
(In Mashu's POV)
1. Naruto/Hinata (Naruto) (Won't change. Ever. No matter the canon. And yes, I'll regret that later, like with a couple that's disappeared from the list completely.) (OTP)
2. Lloyd/Colette (Tales of Symphonia) (Will stay here. Apparently the official couple. Score.) (OTP)
3. Harry/Hermione (Harry Potter) (Canon material can bite me. Getting our hopes high then sending us crashing to the ground with... what?... ugh...) (OTP)
4. Prince/Lyon (Suikoden V) (Staying put. If only I didn't need to keep Roy alive to keep Lyon alive. Screw you, game.) (OTP)
5. Shinji/Rei (Neon Genesis Evangelion) (There's enough fanfiction to satisfy Mashu even if the source material is ... well ...) (OTP)
6. Kyo/Tohru (Fruits Basket) (Yeah, I know. Bit of a double standard considering Cynic's disdain for tsundere females. But Kyo's not hateful, just lonely. Promise.) (OTP)
7. Akito/Sana (Kodocha) (It's extremely amusing, especially since the guy as chasing the girl for most of the series. Ah, progress. [Cynic: Vomit.])
8. Natsume/Mikan (Gakuen Alice) (Er ... See #6, except with a much more hateful and bratty punk and an even more ... clueless female?)
9. Hiroki/Nina (Ultra Maniac) (I did prefer to see Nina more than Aya.)
10. Ryuichi/Kana (Full Contact) (It read like tying up loose ends but it was still good to read.)
12. Kazuki/Tokiko (Busou Renkin) (The whole anime reminds me of Bleach...)
13. Kyosuke/Miki (Hungry Heart: Wild Striker) (Belligerent sexual tension reigned supreme. But the support for each other was clearly there.)
14. Kazuma/Tsubasa (Kare Kano) (Is it weird that I prefer this couple over the main one ... Although it was funny to see what they looked like at the end.)
15. Yoh/Haruna (Koukou Debut) (Actually one of the least annoying couples I've seen in manga for a while. Bit like Kare Kano.)
Souichirou/Yukino (Kare Kano)
Hakuou/Ryou (Shitsuji-sama no Okiniiri)

Trying to rid themselves of writing ruts, period
REALLY trying to get over the writing ruts.
