When I saw the Dark Knight, I ran to read some Batman fanfiction, and stumbled upon pdantzler2's wonderful story and drew some fanart! Here:
For those of you who wanted to read the slim information about Wolfram and his father in the Drama CD, here is the link:
All Dragon Knights and CLAMP fics are being Beta-ed by L.Vandattae. Give her a big round of applause! Without her to give me a swift kick to my posterior, I'd still be lounging about like the lazy lout I am!
The majority of my writing tends to be parodies of various scenes of actual canon material, or simply some twisted scenario my muse has dredged up from the pits of my mind. I tend to imagine my favorite characters in ludicrous situations and circumstances when I'm bored then can't let the idea go, thus many of my fics have been born. Humor is my specialty as many of my fans have declared, although recently, I have been dishing out very good family fluff with a side of angst that's surprisingly decent. Well, people do say one's writing evolves over time. I haven't lost my talent for humor, so I shall welcome this new skill with open arms!
I sort of cringe at my writing before '06. The plot is alright I think, but the grammar and spelling mistakes are atrocious and the sentence structure mocks me. Those fics are in terrible need of revision, but I refuse to delete them, because I believe once you have posted your work online, it is no longer solely yours any longer, but belongs to the community as a whole. While you may have no more interest in updating or continuing a story, there is no need to take it away from those who may derive pleasure from it. So, tread lightly upon reading my older fics, please. I had just begun writing and my style has evolved since then.

Favorite Manga/Anime/TV shows
O.K, here's the facts about me and Manga. I am very particular about the type of Anime I like. In order for me to read and enjoy it, I have to like:1) It can have angst, but the humor must overwhelm those parts, because I hate angst to the max 2)the drawing type, 3)the plot has to have depth and be enthralling, 4)I have to like the characters!
Yep, those are the reasons and even though, I do love CLAMP's drawing style, most of their manga is sooooo depressing and angsty. When I read manga, I want action, insane moments, and HUMOR galor! I'll have you know I only got started on Dragon Knights because it started off light and funny! I think I only stayed hooked on it because it was my very first manga which I grew to love and a very special reason called: RATH!
1)Dragon Knights: the first manga I ever read and my long time love. It has EVERYTHING! Action, adventure, drama, romance, cool characters, great plot, and best of all-COMEDY!
Fav characters from DK(in order):
Pairings I love: well, pretty much all of them. Dragon Knights is one manga where I don't mind the variety of pairings, although I refuse to read Kharl/Garfakcy or Thatz/Delte! I absolutely love Kharl/Rath and I adore the whole Tintlett/Rune/Lim-Kana triangle that was canon-ized! XD
That's about it. Cesia wasn't on my list not because I don't like her-she's just not one of my favorite characters. I don't know what it is about her, but I find her REALLY ANNOYING sometimes! But as far DK pairings, I wouldn't mind her with Rath, because obviously that's where it's gonna go in the series and because better her than someone else!
2)Kyou Kara Maou: the drawing is like breathtaking, the characters unique and hilarious, the plot may not be that strong, but the show is more about the characters' growth and relationship interactions. Angst is slim, humor abounds and no one dies! That's my favorite anime construction! X3 Anyway, it's a great series! I have a very unhealthy obsession with it!
Fav characters in order: (I have a weakness for vonBielefeld genes) Wolfram, Waltorana, Rufas, etc...
3)Digimon: This is the first anime that I ever watched way back when, I wasn't even clear on what anime was, only that I loved this show! I even remember making up stories in my head between episodes and to amuse myself when I was bored, without realizing I was creating a fanfic. By the time I joined here, Digimon was a couple of years old and I had moved on to other things, however, those characters will forever hold a special place in my heart.
Another thing, I happen to be one of the few people in this fandom who prefers using the dub names and I am not ashamed of this. I'm aware that most Digimon fanfiction seems to have evolved into using the original Japanese names for the characters, however, having grown up with the English version, I'm rather fond of the dubbed names, cheesy show and corny jokes that come with it. I have watched the original versions. While it was interesting to see it unedited, I am perfectly content with dubbed still, surprise, surprise. Childhood memories have a hard time being replaced.
Fav characters in order: Tai, Matt, Ken, Agumon, Wormmon, Takato, Rika, (and everyone else is sort of equal).
Heh, I suppose I should put favorite pairings, although in my opinion, if it's well-written, I have no particular preferences for this series. I like Daiken as much as I do Kenlei. I can see Daikari just as much as Takari. Jyoumi, Koumi, Rukato or Jurato. The only one couple I balk at is Sorato. I can't even say I'm a Taiora fan anymore. I think I just plain hate Sora. (Maybe that's why Taito is comforting, hmmm).
Regarding Digimon fans only, It has come to my attention due to certain comments, that I feel compelled to point out that the plot behind Digimon did not revolve around the romantic relationships of the children and/or their Digimon. It you insist on spamming my review box with senseless dribble that has nothing to contribute to what the fic was about, I will delete your incompetent ramblings. I am not a rabid fanshipper who is out for blood. I can hold a logical argument. You want to discuss your eccentric viewpoints, pluck up the courage and leave me your email and we shall have a nice, long debate. I love Digimon as much as the next person, but some of you fans are a little too zealous for your own good. Every other category I have written for (excluding HP), people have been very considerate and thoughtful in their reviews regardless if we have clashings over choices of different OTPs. Here, it's like: you can't make fun of anyone--that's bashing! You can't have other pairings besides canon--that's blasphemy! You have to watch the sub only or you're a HEATHEN! BURN IN HELL! Do me and every other mature person a favor and broaden your horizons, please.
Well, I watch a lot more than those, however, as you may have noticed, the majority of my fanfics takes place around those categories, so I will only list my other fav anime/manga by title: Anima, Code Geass, Get Backers, Gakuen Alice, Shounen Onmyouji, Ouran Host Club, Death Note, Saiunkoku Monogatari, Eureka Seven, Wolf's Rain, Digimon, Princess Tutu, Demon Diary, MeruPuri, GirlGotGame, Love Attack, D. Grayman, Kuroshitsuji, Over Drive, Big Windup!, Peacemaker Kurogane, Ao no Exorcist, Control-C, Eyeshield 21, Hikaru no Go and my most recent obsession is Tiger and Bunny, which I hope to write something for soon!
Books: Silverwing series (Kenneth Oppel), Stravaganza series (Mary Hoffman), The Dragonback Series (Timothy Zahn), Percy Jackson and the Olympian series (Rick Riordan), Chrestomanci Chronicles (Diana Wynn-Jones), Valdemar series (Mercedes Lacky), Redwall series (Brian Jacques), Artemis Fowl series (Eoin Colfer), the Twilight series (which I have a love/hate relationship with), Harry Potter (just check out my favs list -_-;), Inkheart series, and tons of other books which I can't name cuz their not in a series and it'll take too long. Just imagine I read the whole library (no joke). I tend to enjoy fantasy and a little bit of sci-fi (most of which is Star Wars), and would rather read a good thick Young Adult/Children's book than anything else.
Movies: DISNEY! Phantom of the Opera (I actually saw the opera before they made it a movie), Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Star Trek: 2009, Indiana Jones, She's The Man, National Treasure, Peter Pan, Robin Hood, Moulin Rouge, and a zillion more...too many to name.
Hobbies: Reading a book, drawing...anime characters (yeah, well, just try and tell me you don't: blushes), attempting to cook Japanese recipes, researching and finding anything I can about Japan, and of course, fanfiction.
Places I'd like to visit: England, Japan, Ireland, the Oregon Trail: I'm gonna take a tour that follows the same path those people took back in the 1850's in a real covered wagon visiting all the spots along the way (yes, you can do that), and Italy, and of course, the whole world.
Also, you may have noticed some of my fics are gone. I took them on FFNet cuz of the site's strict code:
The Joys of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
The Twelve Days of Christmas
Thatz Got Run Over Mr. Death Die!

Favorite Author Quotes
For a change, lady luck seemed to be smiling on me. Then again, maybe the fickle wench was just lulling me into a false sense of security while she reached for a rock. Timothy Zahn
Fiction is to the grown man what play is to the child; it is there that he changes the atmosphere and tenor of his life. Robert Louis Stevenson
You will, I am sure, agree with me that... if page 534 only finds us in the second chapter, the length of the first one must have been really intolerable. Sir Author Conan Doyle
I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying. Oscar Wilde
I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity. Edgar Allan Poe
" Writing- the profession in which you stare at a computer screen, stare out the window, type a few words, then curse repeatedly. " Drew Goodman

"Never memorize something that you can look up." Albert Einstein
Contrariwise, if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic. Lewis Carroll
"There is no real ending. It’s just the place where you stop the story." Frank Herbert
"I didn't lie! I just created fiction with my mouth! " Homer
Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand.
'Classic.' A book which people praise and don't read.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
Humor is mankind's greatest blessing.
Humor must not professedly teach and it must not professedly preach, but it must do both if it would live forever.
It's no wonder that truth is stranger than fiction. Fiction has to make sense.
"I haven't any right to criticize books, and I don't do it except when I hate them. I often want to criticize Jane Austen, but her books madden me so that I can't conceal my frenzy from the reader; and therefore I have to stop every time I begin. Every time I read Pride and Prejudice I want to dig her up and beat her over the skull with her own shin-bone.
As far as I'm concerned, the entire reason for becoming a writer is not having to get up in the morning.
Things need not have happened to be true. Tales and adventures are the shadow truths that will endure when mere facts are dust and ashes and forgotten.
You get ideas from daydreaming. You get ideas from being bored. You get ideas all the time. The only difference between writers and other people is we notice when we're doing it.
You ask me again if I look upon writing as an escape from reality: in no sense of the word does it seem to me to be escape from reality; I should rather say that it is an attempt to approach and penetrate reality. Thomas Wolfe
It begins with a character, usually, and once he stands up on his feet and begins to move, all I can do is trot along behind him with a paper and pencil trying to keep up long enough to put down what he says and does. William Faulkner
"You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children." Madeleine L'Engle
"I am simply of the opinion that you cannot be taught to write. You have to spend a lifetime in love with words." Craig Claiborne
"The only thing I was fit for was to be a writer, and this notion rested solely on my suspicion that I would never be fit for real work, and that writing didn't require any." Russel Baker
"I would rather be attacked than unnoticed. For the worst thing you can do to an author is to be silent as to his works." Samuel Johnson (Readers, heed his advice and review please! TT )
"You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world." Ray Bradbury
“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don’t we consider it his duty to escape?…If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we’re partisans of liberty, then it’s our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!” JRR Tolkien
A percentage that =/= 100% of teens would copy and paste some unoriginal crap downgrading mainstream actors/singers/etc because they think they're original compared to other teenagers by doing so, don't copy and paste this to your profile if you're whatever is left of the percentage that doesn't because that's just lame.
