Author has written 2 stories for Naruto, Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, and Hikaru no Go.
'In principio erat verbum' [in the beginning was the word]
Yo! My name is SwordsMagician, as I can’t be bothered to change it and I have to admit that the name’s grown on me. I’m in the process of writing a few stories, as I was struck with a bit of inspiration, and am lucky to be blessed with good friends who can curb my lazy tendencies and kick me into gear. Also, many thanks to the lovely reviewers who’ve taken the time to leave their own comments!
I usually aim to post something every month. Naturally, things do not always go to plan due to real life, but this self-imposed target is something I continually aspire to in order to keep things organised and readers satisfied.
Current Works in Progress
Shikamaru no Go [ShikaGo, SnG]
My first fanfiction, a spark of an idea that's grown and, with time and effort, I hope will become a decent sized story. It all started with probing into Shikamaru’s proficiency of shougi and Go. The next thing I know there’s a Kage school, Go stalkers and spirits added to the mix. I've surprised myself with how it's turned out, as things have progressed from my initial ideas at their most basic to some of the complexities that shaped themselves in my notes. This is located in the crossover section.
Disclaimer: Yumi Hotta and Takeshi Obata’s combined efforts created Hikaru no Go. Naruto was spawned from the mind of Masashi Kishimoto. I’ve merely fused the two works to see what happens.
The Mafia Wants You! [TMWY!]
Because messing about with Tsuna and the KHRverse was too good an opportunity to miss. This is the next undertaking of mine, of a rather different root from my first fanfic, as it allows me to delve into action, comedy and the mafia. It’s looking to be a variety, because while I love writing humour I’m also trying my hand at seriousness and drama. The rating might change, though at this point things have a degree of uncertainty.
Disclaimer: I don’t have the rights of Katekyo Hitman Reborn! Akira Amano was the one that brought us mafia bishounens, Dying Will flames, running around in boxers, time travelling bazookas and the many crazy antics of the Vongola that would take too long to write down here. All I lay claim to are my own story ideas, original characters, and so on and so forth.
Note: All characters are fictional. Mafia Families and their nationalities are not representations of people from real life, or aimed at discrediting anybody or their race. I'm just writing all this for entertainment and reflection.
I’m an Australian-born citizen of Eurasian descent. I have a younger sister. I’m not a very good driver. I’m currently working as a tutor. I'm studying a double degree of Education/Arts at University. I share my day of birth with Light Yagami. (I do not have much in common with Light Yagami otherwise).
I will generally prefer humour to horror. I have no problems with reading het or slash. I also have the tendency to include shout-outs and references in stories, from an Abridged Series to Doctor Who to Monty Python. (Some are overt, others not so much. If you get them, great! If not, don’t worry about it, and I hope it won’t detract from the reading experience).
I have a policy to attempt to answer all reviews. If you’ve taken the time to comment, I’ll try to take the time to answer back. Hopefully in less than a month’s time. Otherwise I treasure all the favourites, author and story alerts.
I don’t plan to abandon stories, so unless I state otherwise you can just assume I haven’t updated because of RL, studies, work, procrastination and/or writer’s block.
Finally, thanks to all readers, reviewers and friends on this site! I have the utmost pleasure from being able to share my stories with you!
Currently embroiled in the exam period (yet again) and work. Tutoring is both rewarding and leaves me knackered, and I don't know how I'll cope teaching full-time later, I really don't.
I'm still working sporadically on TMWY! and Shikago (NOT ABANDONED I SWEAR), and I've also got two Sherlock fics in progress (along with about thirty-something developing plots on my USB). Expect an update either by late June or in July.
My dear readers and reviewers, you've been wonderfully patient so far and I am thankful. I haven't actually checked my account for a while before this posting, though I'm now aware that the backlog I need to reply to has grown, and hopefully I'll get to them at some point.
