Author has written 16 stories for City Hunter, and Final Fantasy VIII.
Hmmm, it's been a while since I've had to introduce myself, so where to start...
Currently I am a college student and have completed an AS in Psychology and will be starting to work toward my BS in psych in the fall. I have been writing fanfiction for a couple of years now and have been reading it for much longer than that. For those who enjoy the TV series Bones, I have a separate account here at the site under the name Rochelle Templer.
I created this account mainly for my anime and manga fanfiction. I have been a fan of anime and manga for years now and have a great love for classic (often meaning older) titles along with more obscure or offbeat ones. For now, I will be focusing on one of my favorite series, City Hunter, but I plan on adding fics from other anime and manga titles in the future.
Update: 6/4/2013: So I've decided to also branch out into Final Fantasy 8 fanfiction with this account and will be starting a new story today. But for my readers who are still following my open City Hunter fics, don't worry. I will be updating them in the next week or so as well.
Some notes on my fics:
-I will be using honorifics (and a few titles) if they are commonly used in the original work. I tend to watch most anime in the original Japanese (usually with subtitles) and have studied Japanese in the past, thus I'd like to keep some of that flavor in my written work. Plus, the use of honorifics can say a lot about how characters view each other which is another reason why I want to use them.
City Hunter fics:
-I was a fan of the anime before I got a chance to read the manga (and I still haven't had the chance to read a large portion of the manga) and thus most of my work will be heavily influenced by the anime, although I plan on mixing in elements of the manga and will include more of it as I get the chance to read it. I apologize ahead of time for any canon details I get wrong, and please feel free to PM me if you notice any glaring canon issues.
-Even though my fics will be in English, there are a couple of words that I plan on leaving in Japanese...most notably, mokkori. I know that English translators have come up with a variety of substitutes for it including sexy, nookie, scoring and whatnot, but to me, mokkori is one of those words which just doesn't quite have a suitable equivalent in English. Plus, being as it's such an integral word in Ryo's vocabulary, I can't bring myself to leave it out of his dialogue. :)
I'd like to thank anyone who takes the time to read my work in these fandoms. I hope you enjoy it.
All for now
