Author has written 5 stories for Yu Yu Hakusho, and Charmed.
It's me, sashax13! I like to read & review other people's fanfic.
That being said, I like anime, fantasy and science fiction so long as it isn't too science-y.
My favorite TV shows--and, typically, fanfiction genres--are Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the anime Yu Yu Hakusho. (Yeah, notice any similarities?) I'm also a fan of Charmed, especially the original older shows.
My favorite movies are Star wars, the X-men series and The Lord of the Rings
I like to read, too. Real books. Not just fanfic.
My favorite books are A Great And Terrible Beauty & Rebel Angels by Libba Bray (BEST SERIES for girls- and supernatural lovers- EVER) The Stravaganza trilogy by Mary Hoffman, Harry Potter books by JK Rowling, Daughters of the Moon by Lynne Ewing, Amelia Atwater-Rhodes's vampire books, Meg Cabot's books, The Two Princesses of Bamarre and Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine, A Seperate Peace by John Knowles, Laurie Notaro's books, Sahara Special by Esme Raji Codell, and Gingerbread by Rachel Cohn. I also like John Green, David Levithan, Phillippa Gregory, Megan McCafferty (the Jessica Darling books).
I don't typically read fanfiction made off of books. This is because it is hard for any fan author to imitate the style of another author, and too easy to compare to the original. Whereas with TV, movies, or even anime, it is much easier for authors to take characters from a screen and put their stories into convincing words. That being said, there are exceptions. I like Harry Potter fanfiction, but I'm quite picky!
I'm not usually interested in long, multi-chapter stories. I loooove to read them, don't get me wrong, but I don't usually spring for big projects. If you've read one story of mine and wish there was more, try reading one of my other stories and see if you like it.
My favorite genre to read is parody. Basically, silly stories just rock! But I like it best if you make fun of everything instead of just one character/concept in particular. Bashing is a pretty big turn-off.
To be entirely honest, romance is not my favorite genre. Shipping is not my favorite thing. I mean, it's great and all, but story is more important.
If you would like to leave critical comments or suggestions, that's fine; I appreciate it. That being said, when my work gets posted on here, it's usually close to what I consider a finalized version. Particularly when I am doing oneshots, which I usually am. I will take note of your comments in case I decide to revise or re-post the story. I hate to take things down, even if they aren't perfect (or still unfinished: it happens, I'm sorry about it and will try to avoid starting things I cannot plan on finishing from here on out) and I've always hated it when other fanfic authors do that, so I won't unless there's a major problem with it.
I hope everyone likes my stories!

P.P.S. My friend, Lectaelf, writes fanfictions. She doesn't have anything posted right now, but she's a soon-to-be legend. When she finally gets her awesome Yu Yu Hakusho fic to publishing quality, you will love it. I know I did. For the moment, you can look her author page up or something. I know she likes to read and review.
Note: Okay, I blew it and forgot to put a disclaimer of any kind on the Go Out For Donuts story like I meant to, and since I don't know how to edit stories already online, here is one now, because I'm copyright-aphobic and I will feel bad if I don't leave credit to the people from whom I borrowed characters, etc. So here goes: I did not write, do not have enough skill to have drawn or animated and am in no way involved in the production of the series Yu Yu Hakusho and claim no ownership of the characters of said series. In addition, I am in no way associated with Starbucks, and I apologize for slandering them because I really do like the mocha frappuchinos there, and enjoy their fast-food way of making coffee, even if it costs a lot and they put a lot of milk in. It is still good. Just pricey. Also, I don't own anything to do with Disney or Disneyland and I did use the name.
This goes for a story about anything I post on here, least I forget a disclaimer in the future.
Here are some extra notes/summaries on some of my stories for more information and tidbits from the author, seperated by series:
Yu Yu Hakusho
The First Rule of Perm Matinence: (Apologies to the makers of Legally Blonde) I wrote this while I had writers block for TTLB- I wanted to make it into a chapter, but it didn't fit. The main purpose of this story is to poke fun at Karasu, and by association, Kurama. Because Karasu is one of those crazy, Uber-fashionable Hollywood type drama queens who needs to be put in his place. And Kurama is just asking for it. He's way too serious about things and doesn't seem to notice how silly he looks with all of his flowers. Someone needs to tell him that.
Throwing the Lemons Back: When life gives you lemons, you probably can't handle it, because thing you're good at is saving the world and fighting demons! So, ordinary, mundane problems are not exactly your thing. So you solve them the only way you know how: by radically abusing your superpowers and making fun of each other.
The Evils of Schoolwork and Clothes Shopping: In YYH, people seem to tear up their clothes a lot. They really ought to get new ones. They aren't very good at store ediquitte, though.
Hiei and Kurama Go Out For Doughnuts: They were late for the match against the Dr. Ichigaki zombies. What made them late? Getting attacked by a giant, malignant, nearly invincible robot on the way to the arena? Um, yeah, like anyone's gonna believe THAT. H & K would be better off just admitting the real reason they ditched, haha.
In A Young Girl's Heart- A story based on a reference to the girls' past said by Prue on the first episode of Charmed. Apparently, the sisters had been introduced to the spirit board before... and tried to use it. There is a slight twist, that is not implied by the quote, but invented by myself to give the story more dignity. It may be worth noting that this story is NOT Alternatue Universe. The girls do not have their powers or Paige when they are young, but they are still affected by their heritage.
