|Yami Hime Hikari|
Author has written 15 stories for New Jedi Order, Magic Knight Rayearth/魔法騎士レイアース, Sailor Moon, Digimon, Utena, and Spirited Away.
NOTICE: I'm looking for a beta! I am in drastic need of one, especially with my Sailor Moon fics!
To everyone waiting for my updates: Life comes first. I'm working on more chapters when I can and will post them when they are complete. I'm alive, I swear. Actually, you'd be doing me a favor if you PM'd me or left me a review, letting me know that you are interested in 1() of my stories. Motivation is wonderful, as it reminds me that there really IS someone waiting for these stories, that I have a reason beyond escapism (which can be accomplished just as easily by daydreaming) to work on these stories. NOTHING HAS ACTUALLY BEEN ABANDONED.

The Visit: Anakin died in Star by Star, as we all know, but he comes back to give a little message. Fluffiness abounds. Set shortly after end of NJO.
I Love You: Set directly after Sacrifice, Mara goes to see Ben and say goodbye. They have an interesting family reunion with her killer and his brother. It was a lesson to me to not write fic while emotional over losing yet another of my favorite characters. My writing ability seems to be slaughtered during such a time. Any comments on how to improve would be greatly appreciated.
Death and Rebirth: AU. Oneshot. A disaster strikes Hotaru's family when she is young and defenseless.
Why Don't You See?: Poem. Winter is cold in more than one way and someone finds that out the hard way.
Unique: Poem. Someone asks Hotaru what makes her so different.
Moments: She had moments of maturity, though few noticed and fewer commented and none to her. She had far more of these moments that anyone realized or were willing to guess. After all, everyone needed her to be their "Odango-Atama" or baby girl, didn't they? No one noticed her growing up. Apparently, I did poorly with the ending of this fic, leaving people with the belief that there's more coming. I had not intended it that way, so anyone willing to take a look and tell me how to improve and what, exactly, is giving it that open-ended feel, would be greatly appreciated.
Twilight: No, no connection to Stephanie Meyer's book. Gah, no twisted vampire relationships here. This fic has a certain someone going back as far as she dares, knowing it will just bring pain and more temptation to take that extra step... Knowing she no longer has a place in either world, she goes to the place she had feared the first time around, now the only place she can find a bit of peace. A choice is made.
Pin The Rose: A poem about Anthy's role in the duels, set just before the series starts, set more in the mangaverse than animeverse. Pretty much first attempt at poetry.
The DigiDestined Minus One: What if Hikari went missing before the beginning of season one? How much would that change everything? Just how much of a role did her simple existence have in shaping everything? Would her brother still be able to be a leader? How would the other Destined be different? Currently working on chapter 13 and specific outlining through Myotismon.
Magic Knight Rayearth:
An Old Knight: On one of their many visits back, the Magic Knights encounter a new enemy and discover it's not something they can beat on their own, even with all the help of the trained magic-users in Cephiro. So they summon someone who can help them. She turns out to be a previous Knight, who just so happens to hate Cephiro. Working on chapter 15, know where I'm going, but have hit a block. Don't know when there will be notable progress made on this story.
The Guardians of the Sailor Senshi: First in trilogy. The child Senshi have been proven to not have enough security and end up with their own Guardians. Goes right up to the Fall of the Silver Millennium. Working on chapter 8, although since I've misplaced the first several pages, don't expect it soon.
The Guardians' Return: Sequel to Guardians. Set after Galaxia and before CT. How are the Senshi going to fare against an enemy who is not an embodiment of Chaos, but human through and through, albeit magically endowed? Currently under revision. I'm looking for a beta for all my SM fics, but this one especially.
Exile: Final in trilogy. About one specific Guardian and how it is her fault that five large cities in Crystal Tokyo are decimated, leaving only a small portion of people present alive. Seven years later, the Queen's nightmares and politics send a Senshi and her Guardian to the home of a former enemy for negotiations. The representative they come back with seems to know a lot more about the missing Guardian and her whereabouts than she lets on. On the back-most burner there is. My lowest priority story right now, especially with Return being overhauled. It will be updated when I have inspiration and have worked out the many kinks in Return. Don't expect it for a LONG while.
Only Fools Run: She'd always believed that only fools run. Later, Usagi is doing just that. After the final battle with Galaxia and everyone being sent back to Earth, all the Senshi meet up again. Something goes horribly wrong and Usagi cuts off all contact with her Senshi and fiance. Progress: 40% complete. Issues: I'm not too good at fight scenes, and we've reached a major point that needs to be handled delicately or it will flop. Feel free to nag me about this one especially! Progress slowly being made now that I have access to Sailor V manga.
What's that? This is supposed to be a bio? Well, I suppose that means I should mention something beyond story progress...
Name: Yami Hime Hikari
Likes: Magic Knight Rayearth, Sailor Moon, MARS, Digimon, Utena, Mercedes Lackey, anything by Hayao Miyazaki, most of Star Wars... excluding Caedeus. Jacen was a whiny, bleeding-heart pacifist that I didn't care for, but he was still better than what he became...
Dislikes: Cliffhangers. Darth Caedeus! (Rather pathetic excuse for a Sith Lord and HOW did he get control over most of the galaxy...) I also don't like the fact that all my favorite SW characters either are killed or get sidelined to the point that I can't always see the character development that apparently occurs. //coughcoughTahiriafterFH3coughcough//
Mara Jade Skywalker (Star Wars)
Anakin Solo (Star Wars)
Tahiri Veila (Star Wars) Before the end of NJO, anyway. I can't see how she goes from her behavior at the end of NJO to her behavior patterns in LotF. I don't see the character development and I don't like how weak in all ways she was portrayed in LotF.
Ikirt (Star Wars)
Yoda (Star Wars)
Hikari (Digimon seasons one and two)
Kouji (Digimon season four)
Hotaru/Sailor Saturn (Sailor Moon)
Adult Emeraude (Rayearth)
Anakin/Tahiri (New Jedi Order) Yes, I know he's dead. T_T Check my fic "The Visit" if you think their love can't be continued, though.
A former friend of mine sent this to me: how you know when a Japanese show is badly dubbed. I ESPECIALLY agree with number 72.
Bad dub when...
Current Favorite Quote(s):
The writing life is like a series of vicious kicks in the teeth.
"The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don't just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary."
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
"The art of life is the art of avoiding pain."
The goal of all inanimate objects is to resist man and ultimately defeat him.
Sanity calms, but madness is more interesting.
"To err is human - and to blame it on a computer is even more so."
Here be my stories! Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Feel free to nag me for updates!
PS. God bless you.
