Hey! I'm Sue, but I also respond to Chama, Kelar, Shiny, Osaka, or Charm, among other things. Chama works best, I think. I've been going by it as long as I've been called Sue (variant of my real name), but it somehow stuck better in my head.
Ina and Fade: Ongoing since 2007, takes place during 2007-2008. Was up to chapter twenty-three, but has been restarted. I've finished eight chapters at this point, I just need to get around to ~uploading~ them.
Pictures: I have pictures/pixel dolls up of many characters on my deviant art, and the Ina and Fade reboot is going to go on there as well. Here's a family tree of characters during the time Ina and Fade takes place:
So, some obsessions that I may/may not be writing for.
His Dark Materials
Lord of the Rings
The Seventh Tower
Codename: Kids Next Door
Brave New World
Dennis the Menace
The Hunger Games Trilogy
Stories I'm currently working on (bolded are the ones getting the most attention, underlined are ones on the site already):
Ina & Fade : The reboot is in progress! (Original will be left up, though).
In Media Res : Latin for 'in the middle of things', this will just be medium to longish drabblethings involving pivotal moments in the lives of various characters in Ina & Fade, most of them will be romantic.
Throne : The Wizard's Manual mentioned several other classifications of being to Nita, but she didn't read them. When a little kid gets her powers earlier than the norm, poor Darryl's suddenly thrust into the middle of what will either be the biggest mistake of his life, or he'll find out just how easily amused the Powers are. Either way, he's in for a ride. (And that musty cheese is evolving sentience, uh-oh!) It's slowly getting into gear.
The Convoluted Musings of Toph Bei Fong : Okay, so it's Toph thinking. But what does our favorite little TBF think about? It involves everyday musings with more than a dash of weird. Will occasionally contain references to crack pairings and non-canon pairings, because the Toph who has taken up residence in my head is a little... -shrug- I'm amused by her, at least. Chapter three is up. It sort of has a story line. And I think I just introduced a new crack-pairing...except that it's serious in this story? -shrug- Currently has dashes of Sukka, Maiko, Kataang, Tokka, TySuki, and Suki/The Boulder. Yes, I'm serious about the last one.
Sailor Moon: Lock 'n Load : They've been reincarnated not too long after dying again, but there's something a little off. Why is the new Jupiter the first one to awaken, and what in the name of the Moon is the new Empress doing? Slightly AU-ish, as I haven't had the patience or time to read the whole series. And I'm not telling you what's 'off' about them. ;) I'm having to rebuild the archives on this, now that I've lost all my work. At least I still have the basic plot outlined.
Neville Longbottom: A What-If : Basically, I'm going to (attempt) to redo the entire Harry Potter story to where it fits around Neville as the 'Chosen One' - not Harry. And I may have given Dumbledore a random child-aged cousin in the process, but only because I just can't see Neville with the wife JKR ended up giving him, and giving Neville someone to sort of be a group with is pretty necessary. The girl who popped into my head just happened to look like a young female Dumbledore. Not likely to go up for quite a while. It hasn't started into the writing stages yet, because I'm still tweaking the HP storyline to fit the NL storyline. Probably not going to be out there for quite a long while.
Lucky & Koru : A prequelish thing to Ina & Fade. I admit it, it's a pathetic excuse to experiment with switching viewpoints, and to explain the whole background of these two secondary characters. Roughly half the characters from Ina & Fade will show up, if not more, and it starts a while before the sequel (latterquel? postquel? I need a new word!) It'll receive more attention when I finish Ina & Fade, obviously.
Go, Go, Gryffindor: A What-If : What if Bellatrix Black were three days younger than Sirius? What if the two had been best friends? What if she had been sorted into Gryffindor as well, and been a Marauder? Who might have been saved? Who else would have died? Inspired by...I don't even know anymore. Apparently, all the HP stories I can think of are so AU.
At present, I am mostly writing one shots when I get inspiration, along with Ina & Fade.
Some history-ish/note-ish stuff: When I portray Chiyo-chan in any Azu fics, I'm afraid she'll be partially based off of one of my friends. They look almost exactly alike, minus the freaky pigtails, and act eerily similar.
I have problems with computers, and often lose projects I've been working on.
Best author on FF for Teen Titans: CalliopeMused. I've read Dance of the Skeletons six times so far. That's how awesome it is. Hopefully we'll see her in print one day, hmm? She's also good with A:TLA and Tamora Pierce's books.
InuYasha fans, read forthright and knittingknots. Those two are pretty dang epic.
Old Kingdom Trilogy fans, read Sanaryelle. She has so many epic oneshots it's amazing, not to mention her two long stories, one of which is almost finished.
Personal Statistics (or something) in case you really want to know (stalkers!)

Eyes: Blue, green, grey - take your pick, I can't tell, and neither can anyone else. These are the three most commonly decided ones. My friend Chels did say that I have a ring of yellow around a ring of blue around a ring of green. Apparently, she analyzed my eyes.

Unofficial HP Wand: Macassar Ebony, Phoenix Feather Core, 16", sturdy (Pottermore will probs invalidate this, but this is the wand I compiled for myself after waaaay too much research. The length was decided by playing around with varying lengths of bolts; 16" felt most comfortable to my hand).
