Author has written 37 stories for Golden Sun, Fruits Basket, Naruto, Ouran High School Host Club, Stargate: SG-1, D N Angel, Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure, Amazing Agent Luna, Beet the Vandel Buster, and Hetalia - Axis Powers.
A student once went to his professor with an original story and asked, "Is my writing any good?"
The professor said, "If I told you that it wasn't, would you continue to write anyway?"
Hello, my name is Spirit Seer! I offer you pleasant salutations. After all...
Rapunzel: Something brought you here, Flynn Rider. Call it what you will: fate... destiny...
Flynn Rider: A horse.
...So without further ado, I hereby welcome you to my profile page!
Here me now, o thou bleak and unbearable world
Thou art base and debauched as can be
And a knight with his banner all bravely unfurled
Now hurls down his gauntlet to thee!
(--Don Quixote, from Man of La Mancha)
I'm just a girl with a penchant for writing in very small, dead or dying fandoms... so keep calm and write on!
If you would like to contact me, have constructive criticism for me, have questions, and/or would like to chat, I can be reached through PM and reviews.
Here's a link to my deviantART account for those that are interested: Spirit-Seer-of-Water
I am making a manga adaptation of Car's story Executive Residence! It's my first published adaptation on deviantART, and it is being drawn traditionally. It looks really rough, but it's been a great experience, and I am now three pages away from completion! If you are a Hetalia fan and are interested, please check it out here!
Col. Clink: You know, Hogan, ever since you got here, strange things have been happening. Trains are blowing up. Tanks disappear and come out of the Recreation Hall. Out of a locked case, my cigars vanish!
Col. Hogan: Hm.
Col. Clink: And, you know, just last night, an American plane was shot down. But my guards found no pilot. This morning, they didn't even find AN AIRPLANE.
Col. Hogan: Oh, that's rough, sir.
(--from Hogan's Heroes)
Name: Spirit Seer
Star Sign: Scorpio (though now I'm a Libra... guess I'm just stubborn that way...)
Age: ...You seriously asked a girl that question?
Cookie: And what is this?
Lt. Sinclair: That would be lettuce.
Cookie: L-L-Lettuce? Lettuce?
Lt. Sinclair: It's a vegetable, Cookie. The men need their four basic food groups.
Cookie: [holds up three fingers] I got yah four basic food groups--beans, bacon, whiskey, and lard!

From the flag at the top, you can see that I speak American English. My Spanish is an unholy mixture of European and Mexican/Latin American Spanish (because I've had different professors, have studied mostly Peninsular Spanish works, and have mostly listened to Mexican Spanish). My Spanish has much improved, but it's not perfect (and my greatest weakness is still that subjunctive, gah!). I started learning Italian officially last semester, and I'm picking it up fairly quickly thanks to Spanish, but I'm still a beginner.
If you would like to speak with me or leave a review for a story but don't feel comfortable using English, you may try to speak with me in either Spanish or Italian (or any other language, if you're willing to trust your words to Google Translate). My reply will be far from perfect, but I'll try my best!
The Professor: You see, Cuneiform, which is the oldest form of writing, was invented by the Sumerians and is read demotically. But I read it as though it were a boustrophedon, you see?
Gilligan: I see fine. I also hear pretty good. But I didn't understand one word you said.
(--from Gilligan's Island)
About My Stories:
I tend to stick around the General, Action/Adventure, Romance, Poetry, Tragedy, Hurt/Comfort, Suspense, Humor, and Angst genres, but if I feel inspiration for other genres, this does not mean that I'm limited to these. These are simply the genres that I've written for already/have proven to be most inclined toward.
I used to write song-fics, but those are no longer allowed on this site. The song-less fics are still present, but they're only partially participating in the Form of the Song-Fic given the fact that they lack participation in the Form of the Song while participating in the Form of the Fic, but the remnants of the Form of the Song-Fic (i.e. its Accidents) can be found here on this profile! :D
I don't publish much poetry anymore, but I might in the future if I regain my inspiration. If I have inspiration for a one-shot, I'll post it. I'm mainly focusing on my multi-chapters/novels right now, with my drabble/one-shot collections on the side.
I will not write lemons, smut, yaoi, yuri, etc. I'm not hating on those who like or write them; they're just not my preferred cup of tea, so please don't expect or ask for them in my stories. I also prefer to keep swearing to a minimum.
I often play with ideas for a while before I get around to posting them. I try to find the little, empty niches of the existing story and fill those, which results in many one-shots and drabbles (mostly for Amazing Agent Luna, which is why I just made one collection for them). I'm also into crossovers. Like, really into crossovers. I know that some people don't like them, but I find them rather fun; and, if they're done really well, they can be phenomenal. Consequently, you will find a few of those here in addition to my regular stories.
If you feel that I have a story that I really should work on, feel free to bug me through PM or through a review. It's probably on my to-do list, but it doesn't hurt that to know that there are still people that want to read it. It gives great incentive to write and a nice reminder to stop being distracted by other plot bunnies. Oh, the bunnies...
I update quicker with reviews. Like, much quicker, because they give me inspiration and are one of the ways that I know that there is popular demand for more updates. I'm not one to typically withhold chapters for reviews (because the waits in between updates are typically due to my writing in between my duties of life, such as being a graduate student), but if the chapter number ever exceeds the number of reviews or I go through more than two chapters without a review, then I start seriously considering it.
"Persons attempting to find a motive in this narrative will be prosecuted; persons attempting to find a moral in it will be banished; persons attempting to find a plot in it will be shot."

What's Up Next/Story Statuses:
--Into the Wild Blue Yonder: (9/4/2015) Part the Sixteenth is 85% done...? *ducks tomatoes* Also, for anyone that read my notice, I have looked over my options, and I believe that I can continue the story without back-editing. *cheers*
--Rhapsody: The Princely Chronicles: (9/4/2015) Chapter Eighteen has been started! Also, if you haven't read "No Regrets" and are interested, please give it a read!
--Book One: Revelations of the Past: (7/1/2015) I'm in the process of editing the chapters that I've had sitting around so that I can post them. It's been in the rewriting process for many years now, and while I had wanted it completed before I started posting, I would also like to take down that "Please don't read me" sign that I've had up for ages. I'm done with the Prologue/Chapter One for the xth time, and I'm daydreaming about working on the rest...
--APH/M*A*S*H crossover fic: (7/1/2015) I'm daydreaming about writing a crossover for these two, but I have no idea what I would write about. Hence the daydreaming...
--Behind the Mask: (6/14/2015) I have posted a one-shot! Rejoice, for there might be more coming! :D
--Lineage: (12/26/2014) Sorry, I'd like to update this one soon, but I got distracted with other projects. We'll see what happens!
--APH/Hogan's Heroes crossover fic: (12/26/2014) This will be worked on sometime only after something has finished. (I really don't want to give this one up, though...)
--My Medieval Literature class several semesters ago gave me ideas for some Hetalia fanfictions. I would like for them to make it past the theme board...
--A Guardian's Light is on my To-Do List, but I would like to finish something (preferably somethings) before I return to this one. If I don't, nothing will get finished...
America: [reading a US map] Do you know how long it would take to get from my place to Germany's if I was driving?
England: Why don't you get yourself a real world map instead of that narcissistic nonsense!
America: Who asked you?! [puts away map and pulls out a computer] Fine, then. I'll just ask Google Maps. He'll tell me how far away it is on top of how long it'll take!
England: We can't Google things in 1942!
America: Watch me. [typing] Going from America... to Germany... Check it. I do what I want, biatch--Awck! [reads screen] Swim across the Atlantic Ocean? SERIOUSLY??
England: Oh my. You'd better get started. That's a really long swim. Shocking!

(4/21/2014): Since I just discovered that you left an anonymous review and I can't respond directly to those, I'll hope that you find your response here.
To Guest, who left a review for To Give My Heart: I am sorry for your loss, and I offer my sincerest condolences. I sang his piece while I was in high school, but I had the opportunity to hear it performed by a Girl's Region Choir before then. It's a lovely piece, and it's still one of my favorites.
(1/1/2015): Back for 2015! As promised, this notes section has been
(2/14/2015): AND THE COMPS ARE DONE
(2/23/2015): We just hit 6,000 hits on ITWBY. I'm too happy for words. If I had anything other than fragments of the Platonic Form of the Chapter, I would post it in celebration (but alas, the Form has not been grasped... *
(4/7/2015): The second of my applications is almost complete
(4/18/2015): Two applications are in finally, one of which I made it to the first round of interviews, but as I don't feel that I did very well (never go into an interview sick and tired just don't go in like that or they'll think you're unenthusiastic), I don't think I'm progressing to the second round. I'm bummed. So now I'm currently waiting to hear results for the first. But for the main event--the thesis is done! And my presentation is Tuesday (ALIEWHOGHSH IT IS COMING).
(4/21/2015): The thesis presentation came, and by the grace of God, I think I conquered. :) Now to ride out the rest of the semester. You may yet see your regularly scheduled updates again. In the words of Huck Finn, "...and now there ain't nothing more to write about, and I'm rotten glad of it, because if I'd 'a' knowed what a trouble it was to make a [thesis] , I wouldn't 'a' done it, and I ain't a-going to no more." Hah. XD
(4/26/2015): Research, research, research
(5/7/2015): I have set all of my poetry collections to 'Complete' for the present time. If I have inspiration for more, I will take it down, but for now, this seemed like the truest path.
(5/11/2015): Rewriting my undergraduate thesis. I will hopefully be back soon
(5/23/2015): Still rewriting that undergraduate thesis (but I have graduated, huzzah!). I'm currently bouncing between it, fanfiction, and some original fiction to keep my mind fresh. But I'm also working around the house/cleaning. Maybe I should reconsider that part-time job...
(7/6/2015): My joyous news that ITWBY has over 8000 hits now comes with an unfortunate (temporary!) hiatus. Please see the previous section for details if you haven't already done so.
(7/25/2015): The hiatus has been lifted on ITWBY, but I was hit with a slew of detail work. Almost...
(7/29/2015): The rewriting of my undergraduate thesis is finally complete, and ITWBY's Part the Fifteenth has been posted! Great day~
(8/29/2015): So RTPC wasn't completed this summer as I had hoped, but it's definitely closer now than where it was before. I hope to continue it as the semester progresses, but we'll see. Also, I should complete the next ITWBY chapter in the near future. Here's hoping for something to be posted soon, because I return to classes Monday, haha~
Fiona: You didn't slay the dragon?!
Shrek: It's on my To-Do List!
I have graduated from college (*gives thanks and shouts huzzah*). I am currently preparing for graduate school, where I will be studying creative writing. I'm so excited. I'm hoping to squeeze out a few more updates this summer, but we'll see. Here's hoping!
Thank you so much for being patient with me, everyone. Happy writing, and God bless!
