Funny Of The Day
"What the hell?!" Yosuke shouted, trying to get some clue of what was going on.
"Daisuke and Kou are throwing us up in the air!" Souji said cheerfully.
"Why not?" Souji asked. --Yosuke's Paradiso by Moczo

Personality: Well, I'm one of those kinds of people that is really shy and quiet until I get to know you, and then I become much more relaxed and talk away. I scare easily, and I'm generally nice, unless you piss me off. When I'm around my friends, I am much more relaxed and, well, unhinged. When I have to be, I can be quite sarcastic at a normal volume. I also love being funny and random. If you hit on me, I will glare at you and order you to go away. I use big words a lot, and not even on purpose.

Some Random Facts About Me
I can actually sense whenever electronic devices like TVs or computers are on or off, even if I'm not looking or in another room.
I talk in my sleep, and apparently I can also ask and answer questions in my sleep.
I'm double-jointed. My best trick is my "basket hands" or turning my feet around.
I'm a Christian.
I can use my feet like hands--that is, I can pick up something small with my foot and transfer it to my hand.
I like to invent swear words or swear in Japanese.
I'm left-handed, but I do a lot of things with my right hand, such as open cans, use the computer's mouse, cut hair, etc.
I adore funny socks, leg warmers, arm warmers, and homemade accessories.
I will climb out my bedroom window to avoid talking to people.
--About My Writing/Reading
Things I Like (in fanfiction)
Good plots, good-sized chapters, interesting and well-thought-out OCs, well-written pairings (canon or otherwise), believable slash, stories that are just the right length, people who respond to my reviews, really original ideas, lots of reviews, long reviews, really encouraging reviews, funny reviews, good characterization, cliché-bashing stories, good constructive criticism, honest reviewers who tell you when you need to fix stuff, sexual tension?!
Things I Dislike (in fanfiction)
Mary Sues, really short chapters, really long chapters, really long stories, really sad stories, badly-written anybodyxOC pairings, flamers, bashers, overused cliches with nothing new to add, people who don’t bother to spell check, yuri, yaoi, lemons and limes (and grapes and kumquats), OOC when it isn’t supposed to be funny, killing off characters I like, OCs related to main characters, heavy swearing, unreasonable pairings (i.e. EnvyxOC).
When I write...
I welcome encouraging reviews and constructive criticism. Feel free to point out any typos, because that's the only way I'll get better at it. (So I can whack my beta(s) over the head with a frying pan...maybe) But flames, no. They're lame, and usually the people who write them are just being mean for the sake of being mean. I like to be told if I'm doing something wrong so I can fix it, not called names and told I just suck without any reason.
Stereotypical gushing romance is not my thing. Whenever I write pairings, they're honestly written more like really close friends than a pairing. Long monologues talking about how amazing the other person is or how the character just couldn't bear to be without him/her/it really make my skin crawl more than anything. I try to realistically build the relationship, so that when they finally seal the deal, it's a real, believe payoff.
And I try so hard not to be OOC if it's not an AU story. I really do. When I make OCs, I try to make them actually human, and usually try to go for unusual traits and plots so they don't turn into Mary-Sues. It seems I've been successful so far, yay!
Lately I've been in a real "what if" mood with my fics. Such as "what if Person X hadn't died? What if Event X had never happened/happened to someone else?" and trying to explore how the plot would change with a simple difference like that. We'll see if anything debut-worthy comes out of it.
