Hi, I'm Lang. I'm a fairly decent writer, who dots her i's and crosses her t's when on paper, and abuses Spellcheck on Microsoft Word. I like to think that all the practice I get writing my stories here are a great help to my writing career--gotta start somewhere, after all--and I love getting feedback from readers on how I can improve!
(That said, please don't spam.)

Catch Your Breath: A Self-Insert story featuring Keisuke Gekkō and her (mis)adventures as a member of Konoha's shinobi corps. Current plans for the story go up through the Fourth Shinobi World War arc.
Will there be romance? Yes, when everyone involved is an adult. Between who, you'll have to read to find out. :)
How far do you plan to go with this story? Up until the Fourth Shinobi World War story arc. Seventeen years left!
Who are the Chinatsugumi? Nominally a merchant group operating out of the Land of Fire, the core members seem to somehow be involved with Kei's past despite the timeline shenanigans this would require. Something funny happened on the way to incarnation, apparently.
Members (spoilers below):
Chinatsu Kasai: Leader and CEO (insomuch as they have one) of the Chinatsugumi, married to Akira. Has a bizarre mostly-invisible chakra signature and is a retired shinobi. Later adopts two children. Tall blonde woman with gold eyes.
Misaki Kasai: Chinatsu's twin sister, who functions as the second-in-command and CFO of the merchant group. Other half of her sister's combat team. Has one daughter. Physically identical to Chinatsu, but nastier.
Akira Uzumaki: Timid man originally from Uzushiogakure's Uzumaki clan. Civilian, but blessed with huge chakra reserves and heals people by letting them bite him. Red-haired with blue eyes.
Rikuto Tetsuyama: Former Iwagakure missing-nin and Chinatsu's best friend. Lava Release kekkei genkai user. Probably married to Zakuro. An oft-grinning dark-skinned man with curly black hair and teal eyes.
Zakuro Suzu: Mischievous woman from the Land of Rice Fields. Hypnotic Echo kekkei genkai user. Likely married to Rikuto. Mother of twins. A dark-skinned woman with a variable appearance otherwise, due to her genjutsu. Also screws with others' appearances.
Shirozora Yuki: Former member of Kirigakure's Yuki clan. Ice Release kekkei genkai user. Probably married to Nanami. Known for being humorless. Has one son. A man with dark green hair and steel-gray eyes.
Nanami Hozuki: Former member of Kirigakure's Hozuki clan, user of the Hydrification Jutsu. Likely married to Shirozora. Wallflower. Has one son with Shirozora. A woman with dark green eyes, copper skin, and white hair.
The kids (debuting in chapter 29, 43):
Miyu Tetsuyama: Rikuto and Zakuro's daughter. Black-haired with green eyes and brown skin. Bossy.
Kazuki Tetsuyama: Rikuto and Zakuro's son. Black-haired with teal eyes and brown skin. Very vocal.
Kaito Yuki: Shirozora and Nanami's son. Has dark green hair and green eyes. Clingy.
Aiko Kasai: Misaki's daughter. Blonde with gray eyes. Excitable.
Roku Chigami: Chinatsu's adopted son. Black-haired with dark eyes and brown skin. Quiet.
Tayuya Kasai: Chinatsu's adopted daughter and possible future member of the Sound Four. Pink-haired with dark eyes. Likes music.
