Author has written 7 stories for Inuyasha, Fullmetal Alchemist, and D.Gray-Man.
I write under the name NewMoon, though I go by nicknames like Kuro, Ari, Rei, Shigure, and Reki - depending on who I'm talking to. :D I'm 25, currently living in Idaho, cleverly disguised as a responsible adult with legitimate moments of acting like one. ;) I do take requests for writing, and drawing - I have done artwork for CaptainKase, Griselda Banks, RedAugust, and will for anyone who asks me! You can find me on DeviantArt here: www.arithewarrior.deviantart.com
I am insane (literally and figuratively), crazy in love with a good story (usually the ones thought up by my best friend), obsessed with my fandoms and my writing, regularly inspired by both music and real-life events, and addicted to theoretical discussion about any of these. I'm a passionate hater of coffee (one of the few and the proud - even the smell of coffee beans in the store makes me ill), a huge fan of "it's not what you think" moments, my nickname is "dangit" when I'm in trouble, a commander of a vast knowledge of thoroughly useless (usually... :D) information, I'm sporadically dyslexic and a perfectionist (a truly dangerous combination in a writer), I often fail at speaking in general (do not make fun of my verbal fumbles! DX), and surprisingly enough, I tend to be quiet, reflective, muse-absorbed, and a thoroughly active audience with anyone willing to speak to me or at me. ;) I'll probably be the most open-minded and opinionated person you'll ever meet. ;) I am the crazy passerby wearing the long black trench coat and military style boots who will hold doors open for perfect strangers with a friendly smile on my face. I live to quietly confuse the world who can think only in stereotypes. >:D I am the same person no matter where you met me, on any website or even in person, I will treat you the same; with love, respect, and laughter. :3
My solid vow in posting stories - I will NEVER post a story and not finish it. I won't even post a story until I'm done writing it. Be it a one-shot or multiple chapers, you will always find completed stories with me. (It drives me nuts when I find a good story, only to find out it stopped at chapter four two years ago and the author has no intentions of finishing. D: I won't do that to anyone!) Really.
I don't have many stories out or in the works and don't know if I ever will (in other words, I am not a speed writer by any means), but I do currently have one story for Inuyasha (Listening Sunshine) four for FMA (Breathe With Me, Reckless, Promise Between Us, and Until He Comes Home) and an ongoing D.Gray-Man story written with my friend Krisy-chan (The Ink That Bleeds Through). I am currently working on a MONSTER of a story for D.Gray-Man on my own and have been since about December of 2009 (presently just over 200 pages and I might just be half-way...). I've also started teasing with a one-or-two chapter DGM storyline. One of these days, when it's all finished, I'll post it here. ;3
Until then, I'll be around, searching for good stories and awesome writers. ;)

For my big brother
My Crazy Friends & I:
Group Consensus: non-alcoholic beverages Pocky / Chocorooms x Anime = best Friday nights EVER
Me & Traci: It's you and me versus the world... we attack at dawn.
Star: *while playing Solitaire on her computer* Why did they give me a 5?
Star: *pointing to a movie poster of a woman in 5-inch golden high heels* Look at this! They say "kidnap me, because I can't run away!"
Me: *after stepping in a deep puddle of rainwater* I gotta shoe full of water. YES!
Mat: Recognize the shirt I'm wearing?
Mat: *steps on a DVD case* I just crushed "the Other Side of Heaven"!
Me: Star, what was the other funny thing that happened at Chuck-a-rama's?
Me: *attempting to quote tehExorcist's DGM abridged series while driving and laughing* I always keep this landom razor in my briefcase!
Tomo-chan: *kicks Mat in the butt as he is walking up a flight of stairs*
Me: The two angst writers are going to write a comedy!
Keecee: *sees me writing down yet another group quote funny in my notebook* I already have my ultimate comic project, and its 34 squares long! I am NOT making a comic out of that!
Keecee: ... And the only time I ever get to write now is way late. *pen flicks out of her hand* No! It's trying to escape because I keep abusing it at night!
Tomo-chan: ((describing an OC for a DGM fanfict she’s thinking about)) … -and so one of these guys, it’s so funny, is almost exactly like Kanda: Japanese by birth and pretty quiet, but has that quality of back-off-and-stop-breathing-MY-air, you know? At one point they’re both sitting in silence and sipping tea or something, and Lavi leans over to Allen and says “It must be a Japanese thing”. And Allen looks at the two sitting across the way and observes, “You mean the whole silent disposition of grrr-ness?” *bats her hand like a cat while saying ‘grrr-ness’*
Star: Name one person [in D.Gray-Man] happy with where they are aside from the Millennium Earl!
Tomo-isms: research smartical = researchical
Mat: *In the discussion of talking to a girl he likes* Some would call it cute. I call it terrifying.
Amber: Four woobs!
Tomo-chan: *In response to my laughing so hard I'm crying* For the love of all cosmetics, stop wearing makeup around us!
Keecee: Electricity and Christmas make for a really good day.
Star-isms: irregular radical = irradical
Tomo-chan: *talking about a music vid done by Andy Sixx* I'm so bored, let's throw fake blood on my head!
Tomo-chan: I don't know our nater's wame... (supposed to be "waiter's name")
Amber: Can I get a cup for my cup?
Keecee: Stupid cowardly sneeze! It's like it's coming to get me, and then - PSYCHE!!!
Me: My funny arrow went *yeeer* left with the crosswinds.
Tomo-chan: *In talking about Cross looking at a current -and very voluptuous- woman in yet another fanfict of hers* It's one of those "I just passed-gas" smiles.
Tomo-chan: Kenz? I know I'm mean to you, but can I finish telling Kuro-chan something? 'Cause if I don't, it's going to drive me crazy, but it'll take a while...
Keecee: *coming in after jumping on the tramp* I'm going to shower my body. I'm all sweaty and gross. *Glares at the group of laughing people at her expense* Go ahead and laugh at me! *walks away, incorrerent mumble* I'm tired! *more mumbling*
Me: I am a pack-rat of very refined taste.
Tomo-chan: My brain ran away with me!
Tomo-chan: *talking about yet another DGM fanfic idea* Cross with booze is like an American with a taco - once it goes down, he starts fartin' around!
Keecee: *fighting with an evil-tempered plastic package* Angry people package our goods, Mom! Angry people!
Dallen: *talking about a video game he was ready to kill* I can't believe I wasted two hours looking for this dragon. It's so stupid, all I have to do is go to this house I've passed by 20 times already, and find a little dragon who'll teach me four songs. That's it! Isn't that dumb?
Dad: *when asked to give permission to let his three girls and their friends go on a road trip by themselves* The only reason I would say no is because I'm a male chauvinist pig...
Tomo-chan: My brain has a mind of its own.
Tomo-chan: *imitating Lenalee from DGM talking to Allen in yet another fanfict about why he "disappeared"* What, have you been staked out in your room for the last three weeks thinking about how much you looove LAVI?!!
Keecee-chan: ((left on a memo in my phone)) You didn't make this I am just playing with your phone. Here I go, okay? Banana butter doesn't go out with Tom Sawyer because a ribbon went out for pizza but it tasted like maturity. An alarm clock isn't anything special compared to a credit card because the rooster is what started the party on your porch. Mirrors are great for rainy days for showing the sky how happy it looks when it's crying. Windchimes are really good at silence. Earthquakes is the earth laughing hard at the fact that people think they have captured lightening but it's hard to believe since most of us barely understand trees. Hammocks cause more falls than therapy for the freakers out there and that is all thanks to the little creatures God so kindly gave to the owls that screech above your head to scare the living life out of you. Know why? They knew you would jump and dance in place with your hands shaking around your face like maracas all while ducking at the same blinking time. They do that to cheer up the closest observing dinner in those bushes next to you. That is all. Surely you learned something from this over-splurge of wisdom. You learn stupidere every day as they say.
Tomo-chan: Watch where I'm elbowing you!
Tomo-isms: Earthquakes circular = erkulaer
Amber: *about Tomo-chan* She makes mushrooms on command!
Keecee: Speech impediments are nothing to be inshamed of.
Me: *yelling at a stupid driver in front of me who turned left and ignored the actual turning lane* There's a turning rane for a leason!!
Tomo-chan: *while watching Dancing With the Stars* Oh great, playboy’s here.
Tomo-chan: This is famazing!
Me: *driving between a cement wall and a semi on the freeway* Stuck between a rock and a hard place. ;)
Tomo-chan: It's the weekend. *points at Kuro* She has custody of our brain cell right now. Ask me on Monday.
Tomo-chan: *pushing m&ms around her waffle bowl and spacing out*starts to sing softly* I'm a creeper, not a peeper. I'm not a stalker, I just like you... *pause* ... What did I just say?! *face/palm*
Tomo-chan: *after an intense staredown with a perfect stranger passing by* She was staring at me... so I made it worth her while. ;)
RandomSoldier1: You better get a (confection) flower.
Me: *low sound of a quick exhale* Foo!
Tomo-chan: *looking into a glass of ice water* Mutant ninja turtle!
Tomo-chan: *singing* Particle-man, parti-omph... *soft chuckle* -my dog just fell on my diaphragm. '
Tomo-isms: messed up retarded = matarded
Tomo-chan: *after an intense 2am battle at Sharie's with Keecee-chan using a salt shaker and a soup spoon, getting funny looks from the waitress - the "punny" response* I'm charging her with a-salt because she keeps spooning me!
Jacob: Do you think we could figure out a way to amplify our farts?
Me: *while watching D.Gray-man: "The One Who Sells Souls" arch* You know what tipped me off? His hair. He does not have the hair of a nice man. ;3
Me: *tasting a fresh smoothie Dallen made* This smoothie does have a weird aftertaste, I'm not gonna lie.
Dallen: You know what picture always makes me laugh?
Tomo-isms: crap shoot = cruut

Full Metal Alchemist (First Series):
"Tell me Wrath, if you take my limbs and attach them to your body, do you really think that will make you a human being? I have artificial limbs and Al's a suit of armor, but our souls make us human. That's something you'll never have!" -Edward Elric
"When I was certain he was going to kill me, my mind went blank, and I didn't have any hope anymore. All I could do was scream my lungs out. I felt so helpless; I couldn't even bring myself to believe someone might save me. And then you showed up Al, and I realized that if we doing take care of each other, then no one else will. So I'll do anything in my power to get our bodies back, even if it means being the military's lap dog. And we'll just have to hope our powers are good enough to help us rise above our own limits. Because we're not gods, we're humans, tiny insignificant humans... who couldn't even save a little girl." -Edward Elric
"It's strange; we've been right beside each other all this time, but I can't remember what your skin feels like or how you smell." -Alphonse Elric
"I am the cursed wormiar! Uh, no, wait, uh... I am the cursed demon armor! Once your body becomes one with my steel, you will lose all emotion and become a warrior of death - for I will take your soul!" -Alphonse Elric
"Maybe I haven't grown an inch since then, but I can't let my heart stay stunted too!" -Edward Elric
"I may be empty... but NOT worthless!" -Alphonse Elric

"It's foolish, Edward Elric. Why did you come here?" -Armstrong

"Revenge is a beast that begets itself, and solves nothing. It only leads to more pain. Remember the great words of Ishballa my student; even in the darkest of suffering, a man can sleep, but for the man who inflicts that suffering, his mind cannot rest, ever." - Scar's Master
"We can't keep living like our own dreams are all that matter." -Edward Elric
"Let's get this straight. I'm not here to save Amestris. I'm here to change it. You must become the change you wish to see in the world..." -Scar (Manga, Ch.84)
"You must open the Gate that's inside you. Only then can you find your way back to your true home, Edward." -Van Hohenheim
"I hated my brother so much... He turned his back on the teachings of Ishbala to immerse himself in the sacrilege of alchemy instead, and even though I knew he gave me his arm to save my life, still there was no room in my hate-filled heart for forgiveness. But the Elric brothers... they live only for each other. Seeing their love for each other, it made me want to say those words myself. Brother... I love you." –Scar
"I know Equivalent Exchange is true. If it's childish to believe in this, so be it. I'd rather be considered a child than follow a doctrine of cynicism and chaos. Apathy - I thought I didn't care Dad, that I didn't have to believe in things, but I was wrong." -Edward Elric (emphasis added)
"I don't think of Equivalent Exchange as a law of the world anymore. I think of it as a promise between Brother and me." -Alphonse Elric
