Author has written 50 stories for Power Rangers, D N Angel, Chronicles of Narnia, Supernatural, Thunderbirds, Harry Potter, and Detective Conan/Case Closed.
Name: Tsukino Akume
As far as I know, I was the first official Shane/Dustin writer on the net, tied for first Sky/Jack, and first Sky/Zhane and R.J./Andros. My tastes in genre and fandom are pretty broad and depend on my mood. I have my preferences for couples, but I also like to explore how other random pairings could happen in my own writing. While there's always characters I don't like, I still try to be fair in my stories. I figure that every character is someone's favorite for some reason, and it seriously annoys me when Justin is portrayed as a whiny brat who can't do anything right.
My Power Rangers stories have three main 'archs': the Fade to Darkness Trilogy and its side stories, the Ninja Storm AU Storm Warnings Universe, and the Bright Skies Universe. I also dabble in random, off-the-wall stories whenever I feel like it, but right now 90% of my work is part of Fade to Darkness or Bright Skies. Just about anything I write is AU; there are some concepts I don't agree with, so I tend to expand on what they started, and turn the entire series into a completely different universe. The cannon timelines still exist; I just choose not to acknowledge them. I also seem to be extraordinarily mean to my favorite characters and make them go through some dark trauma to prove how cool they are. (i.e. Dustin/Justin torture, Blake's pathetic romance life, Tommy and Kimberly's disasterous relationship ... -Shrugs-)
Most of my work is Power Rangers these days just because I like the fandom, but occasionally you'll find something from another fandom (or two) that I decided to explore.
If one of my stories isn't listed as complete, that means it isn't finished - no matter how long it's been since I worked on it. I DO NOT abandon my stories. But rather than keep staring at one I can't get any ideas for, I move on with new ideas as I get them so that above all, I'm still writing. If I have a story you particularly love that still isn't finished and you want to see more of it, -Glances guiltily at FtD- send me a review and complain! Ask questions about what's going on in the story, about something you'd like explained or just what's going to happen next that you'd like to see. Nothing gets me more inspired than questions from reviewers: it's where a great deal of my ideas come from. So don't give up! I WILL finish the story you like! ... I just can't say when exactly that will be. x.x
In the immortal the words of a friend of mine, I respond well to bribery. Reviews, pocky, and fluffy slash or fluffy sibling stories count as bribery. Feel free to bribe me at any time.

Nothing gets me more inspired than questions from reviewers - it's where half my ideas come from.

8-22-10: This is an official request! I need betas! Specifically for Alan Tracy and the Boy-Who-Lived, and my upcoming Harry Potter/Gundam Wing crossover Twisted Realities. I'm open to anyone who knows/loves the Harry Potter, Gundam Wing, and/or Thunderbirds fandoms, and is willing to discuss plots with me. If anyone is interested in helping me out (and hopefully helping me turn out faster updates), please PM me!
1-26-12: Yes, I'm still breathing. (Still need betas, by the way. -Bats eyelashes-) My muses are all over the place these days, and so are my stories. Also, while I still post at my LiveJournal account, I'm lurking a bit more around Dreamwidth these days. And for anyone who remembers the original Fade to Darkness (the very first 'finished' edition) and has been looking for it, it is now available at AO3, as well as the second version. I'm in the process of adding other stories there, but I'll still be posting on Fanfiction.net for as long as people are still reading.
6-27-10: MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE. I figure it's about time I address the issues that have been plaguing Fanfiction.net recently - namely The Great Purge.
A Darker Shade of Red, Bright Skies, and Fade to Darkness: Darkness Calling have all been changed to M status as of today. I *personally* don't believe any of these stories deserve that high of a rating, but after going over the updated rating guidelines, they now require it. (Honestly, FtD has always been rated T because this is the site I originally rated it under. But whatever.) None of my other stories have had their rating changed *yet, but those in-progress may be changed in the future according to the rules. I stand by the fact that none of my stories feature anything graphically sexual (namely because I suck at writing porn), but there is a lot of language and violence in some.
As for posting on Fanfiction.net, I know a lot of writers have chosen to abandon the site in frustration and protest. I've come to the decision that as long as the site isn't having any problems with my stories, I'll keep posting here for the sake of my readers who don't know where else they can find me. However, should any of my stories end up deleted by the Administrators, I will not be reposting them here. In the event that something *is* deleted, you can still find my stories at:
