Favorite Authors on ff.net:
DeathslittleBirdie: I love her imagination and her mind. The stories she comes up with are interesting. I love reading her stories because they speak to a part of me that is dark, and devious. she is an awesome writer, whose stories are dark and angst filled, which are my absolute favorite types of stories.
Tomas the Betrayer- another of my top favorite authors on ff.net. The story "Hammered Down" is brilliantly written, and I am amazed and in awe of how epic and wonderful this fic is. It really is a masterpiece, and it has really made me start questioning things I had never thought about before that Kubo has written in the manga. Tomas has really done a brilliant job on this fic, and has done an amazing job at keeping the characters in the fic very close to their characters in the manga.
xxxKei- She combines angst/humor/intimate moments well. Her fics "No Money" and "Private Lessons" are must reads in my opinion. I love a possessive Ichigo who loves his bunny (Rukia).
yume girl91-Another of my fav. writer, whose mind and imagination are brilliant. She has written many Rukia/male character stories, that I have enjoyed. She is another author who has written stories for my fav. crack pairing Aizen/Rukia. Her stories "Incalculable" and "dancing with the devil" are two Aizen/Rukia stories I love. Be sure to check out her stories as well.
lovemydogs82-she wrote an awesome AU IchiRuki story entitled "Mine". It is mindblowing. No words can do justice to this fic. It is rated M, so be sure that you are willing to read M rated material.
trixipixie- has written alot of IchiRuki stories, and I must say they are pretty good. Her story "Sex Pistols" is out of this world.
KuroKuchiki- her "between me and thee" is a story that has captured my heart. She is an amazing writer, and this story is something I can see happening in the Bleach manga series if Kubo decided to add romance.
Flameal Ashcrow- He is the brilliant and talented author of the amazing fic- "The First Guardian". It is an awesome fic. He offers a refreshing twist to the Bleach Universe, where Ichigo is just pure awesome. Ichigo is quite brilliant in the fic, I love the way Ichigo, Rukia, and Zangetsu are portrayed in this fic. This fic is an perfect combination of humor, action, adventure mixed in with a good dose of IchiRuki.
Bagaudas- an new author I have come across who has me addicted to his fic "The Tale of Ichigo Kurosaki". It is a unique fic that combines the Bleach Universe with the show "spartacus". It is filled with plenty of action/gladiator fighting, and features my OTP, IchiRuki.
These are all talented, amazing writers, who write really well and have gotten me hooked on their stories. I find myself rereading their stories over and over again, because that is how much I love their stories. They have brightened my life with awesome Bleach fanfiction. They are the reason I keep coming back to ff.net as well as the reason I started a profile, so that I am able to leave them a review, or send them a private message telling them how much I enjoy their stories. I will be forever in their debt, because they have taken the time to write such awesome stories as well as shared their stories with others such as myself. I have tried to write Rukia stories in the past, but I just don't have the talent for it, which is why I applaud the authors above, because they do have a talent for it.
I just started a profile on ff.net a couple of months ago, even though I have been reading stories from ff.net for about three years now. I started a profile because I read a few stories and thought they were really good and felt that I had to stop being selfish, lazy, and inconsiderate and should start reviewing stories because authors deserve it. So I am going to try my hardest to review stories that I enjoy.
Favorite Anime/Manga: Bleach
Favorite type of Bleach fanfiction: Romance/angst/dark/supernatural
My favorite female character in the Bleach series: Kuchiki Rukia. She is such an awesome character. I guess the reason she is my favorite is because she is what a manga Heroine should be. She is not weak, she is strong, follows her beliefs, always puts Ichigo's and her nakama's safety first, she is intelligent, witty, selfless, and speaks her mind. Plus in my opinion she is an awesome artist. Plus she likes manga. Yes, she does find herself in troublesome situations, but she is not a damsel in distress nor does she often cry out for Ichigo to come and save her.
My favorite Male Characters in Bleach:
Ichigo Kurosaki, Byakuya Kuchiki, Grimmjow Jeagerjaques, Sosuke Aizen, Ichigo's Inner Hollow, Gin Ichimaru, Hisagi Shuuhi, Zaraki Kenpachi, Kisuske Urahara.
Favorite Female Characters in Bleach:
Rukia Kuchiki, Yoruichi Shihoin, Unohana Retsu, and SoiFon.
Favorite Bleach Pairing (OTP)- My absolute favorite Bleach pairing is Ichigo/Rukia. In my opinion, they were made for each other, and though Tite Kubo has not paired off Ichigo with anyone, I have always felt from what I have read from the manga that Ichigo and Rukia will always be tied/bound one to another. I do keep up with the manga more than I do with the anime, and there are just so many IchiRuki moments that one can't help but see how the two have changed the other's life for the better.
Other Bleach pairings- I adore Rukia/harem. Meaning I like it when Rukia is paired off with other male characters. Rukia is a really interesting/unique character, and I can see her touching and changing the lives of those around her. That is why I can often picture her being paired off with other male characters.
Pairings of Rukia I like-
Rukia/Grimmjow-he has a rough personality and I believe him to be quite different than the other Espada. I love how he is cocky, and how he doesn't really care about Aizen's rules or mission. He does his own thing regardless of the consequences. I love pairing him up with Rukia, because I feel she is someone who can handle his attitude and behavior. She wouldn't easily back down from him, which is shown when she tells Ichigo to run when Grimmjow first appears in the living world. She was planning on taking him on, and I'm sure it would have been an interesting fight (though i know Rukia is no match for Grimmjow's strength and power, and I know Grimmjow would have won) if Grimmjow wouldn't have deemed her weak right off the bat and ran his arm through her stomach. He can be impatient at times. Plus she came to Ichigo's aid and managed to freeze Grimmjow, the second time he came to the human world. I really like the idea of Grimmjow claiming/marking Rukia as his own, for his own amusement/pleasure as well as a way to take something precious away from Ichigo.
Rukia/Gin- I love their interactions in the manga, and I love how Gin can easily break the stoic mask/confidence she has, which is seen when he visits with her on the bridge.
Aizen/Rukia- extreme crack pairing I know. Some may think I'm crazy for liking this pairing. I think what appeals to me about this pairing is that Aizen is such a sadistic man, while Rukia is the exact opposite.
Yumichika/Rukia- seems even more of a crack pairing than Aizen/Rukia, but I have to say one of my favorite writers on this site, who wrote an incredible story (TomasTheBetrayer: "Hammered Down") really made me believe there can be a friendship between the two.
Pairings in Bleach that I will never like:
Renji/Rukia- The two are more like siblings than anything else in my opinion, and though Renji does seem to harbor a one-sided love for Rukia, I think he lost that chance, when he allowed Rukia to be adoptive by the Kuchiki clan, and then lost that chance once again when he took her back to get executed (though he did sort of get on my good side when he helped rescue her). I don't hate Renji, I just can't see him and Rukia together.
Ichigo/Inoue- one-sided love if you ask me. I really do believe that Ichigo just holds feelings of friendship for her, probably views her as a sister even. He treats her like he would Yuzu, and I don't really think Ichigo could be himself with her. He would have to watch what he says to her, and I think that if nothing happened between them during the 17 month that he didn't have his power, nothing is going to happen. Also when she chose Tsukishima's side over Ichigo's really does make me think she doesn't love him the way she thinks she does. I felt that there was more chemistry between Ulquiorra and Inoue during the Lust arc, she did change Ulquiorra in a way, and allowed him to understand what a heart is.
Byakuya/Rukia- I don't hate this pairing (I've actually read a few good ByaRuki fics), I just prefer them as brother/sister. I really love his protectiveness over her in the manga.
Other Bleach pairings I enjoy:GinRan, Yoruichi/Urahara, Yoruichi/Byakuya, IshiHime.
The UlquiHime pairing is starting to grow on me.
I don't write fan fiction, and it's because I am more of a fan who likes to read fan fiction rather than a fan who writes fan fiction. Believe me when I say that I can't write good stories. I may try in the future, but as of right now I'm just someone who reads the fan fiction of others.
My favorite shows are How I met your mother, Dexter, Fringe, Supernatural, Firefly, Criminal minds, Buffy the vampire slayer.
The anime shows I watch are Full Metal Alchemist, Full Metal Panic, Bleach, Soul Eater, Cowboy Bebop, Trigun. All the anime shows I watch are usually in English except for Bleach. For some reason or other I have to watch Bleach with subtitles and Japanese Voice acting because I can't stand the English voice acting. I have no idea why I cant stand it, I just can't.
My favorite videos games are the Resident Evil series ( I love zombies, hence my screen name), Gears of war, batman Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, Mass Effect Series, Dead Rising series, Left 4 Dead series, Borderlands, Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas, Fable series, and many more.
