Author has written 21 stories for Shaman King, Naruto, and Gakuen Alice.
Current Status: Busy AND frustrated, but inspired. :)
30Jun: Wow. Congratulations on the major changes, FFN! Anyway, I don't think I'll be able to update soon. I wanna cry! :(( I can't find time to do them. Work consumes my weekdays and friends and family have my weekends. I have three in my to-write list, and I want to lay them all down to share with everyone soon. Hopefully, before the year ends. I'm not giving up, so I hope your support won't end too! :)
18May: Hell yea. Major changes to Sweet Nothings plus an update, and a move to Sweet Nothings: Fire, with a few edits. More updates soon, promise! Japan is keeping me inspired. I don't want to go home!
31Mar: I updated Sweet Nothings! Yay me! I want to do another Gakuen Alice or Detective Conan (ShinichiShiho/CoAi all the way!) soon, but with my sched... we'll see. :) I'm graduating college in a few days! That means my status will change from student to unemployed. Boo. Buuuuut, I'll be having a month of vacation in JAPAN first! So I don't know when I'll be able to squeeze in some FFN time. Hopefully, I post at least three more fics before reality swallows me whole. :)

Me, Myself, and My Alter Ego
Call me Laine or Apple, either works. BS Psychology neocentennial graduate from the University of Santo Tomas, Manila. Now working as an associate in a company in the educational field. :)
I'm impulsive, hence, my updates. I'm also a JPop shipper: Angela Aki, Arashi 嵐, Amuro Namie, and the likes. I'm a bookworm; fast reader, choosy with genres and fussy with style. For Anime/Manga, I watch/read a wide genre, even yaoi and incest. For TV Series, I watch JDo (especially if it has JE boys in 'em) here and there, and US TV Series (Criminal Minds, Grey's Anatomy, New Girl, The Voice, etc.).
As for writer part of me, I like canon pairs (with some exceptions) and prefer a mature fic or style of writing. Drama and Angst are my forte, even though I'm not too fond of reading them. I'm a sucker for dark and heavy themes, both reading and writing. I'm finicky about terminology and grammar and character development. Literary arts is my escape, both the reading and writing aspects of it. I also find it hard to write chaptered fics even though I have a mountain of ideas for them, so I'll be sticking with oneshots until then. If you notice, I also have a pattern in my updates. They're usually during March-June, since it's summer break from school. BUt now that I am working, I have no idea when I can have time for this. Random updates are attributed to my impulsivity. I believe in growth and development, that's why I haven't deleted any of my works here (except for one, since it's a chaptered fic I can't continue anymore) since I started writing no matter how sucky they are now that I look back on them. Looking back makes me proud of how far I've come now. It's a long, ongoing journey.
My Latest Obsession: Detective Conan fics! I finished all good ConanAi/ShinichiShiho fics here in FFN! I'm currently out of CA/SS goodies to read, so please make more and contribute to the fandom, or suggest other sites to me. I can't get enough of them! I'm still addicted to MikanNatsume, and frustrated that I could not find more RikuoYura in NuraMago. Oh, and I started reading FujiTezuka. Still on the mild side tho. :P
My Pride: Of Curiosity and Boredom, A Promise Half-Kept, Karma, Sweet Nothings and Sweet Nothings: Fire, Of Curiosity and Hormones, Fleeting, and of course, Summer Nights. It wouldn't hurt to review now, would it? :)

The Community I Founded
, is reserved for various fics of the same theme or genre. It contains mostly Romance and Angst, and albeit Humor and Tragedy. Drama, Horror, and Mystery are also welcome. Simply put, it is an extension of my favorites. The good fics are here and the better fics are found in my favorites tab.
On Reading and Reviews
Yes, I am an impulsive writer, but that doesn’t change the fact that I am still and avid reader. I still often browse over numerous categories varying from Anime/Manga, Books, Movies, to TV Shows. Recently, I figured out that reading makes me stay away from writing. I haven’t found a solution yet, but I hope I can brew something soon.
On reviews, I, for one, am not a regular reviewer. Guilty as charged; but I know how important they are for authors. It’s not just for the support and motivation, friends and fans are bonuses too. So, I am practicing a new way of appreciating fics. Instead of automatically adding a fic to your faves, or worse, doing nothing, try to leave ‘I LIKE’ or ‘I READ’ as comments. You’d be amazed how such simple words can do wonders to authors like me. Please try it. I really hope you do. Thank you!
