My name is Abby. I'm a law student in the northern US. Aside from reading and writing, I love American politics, research, acting, performing, and analyzing stories.
I am also the person who used to go as KataangNutyBabe, but I finally decided that name was far too stupid to keep up any longer (no offense to the ship, of course). So I took my name from FictionPress.com and put it here too, since I like it so much more. I have also deleted my forever-incomplete Avatar: The Last Airbender stories because I haven't had ANY ideas about them for several years and they are, frankly, a bit of an embarrassment. I'm still super-grateful to everyone who read and reviewed them anyways, though! You guys made me keep going after the first chapters, and it was only through my poor story planning that both stories failed to die at a ripe old age. I hoped to make a bit of a fresh start by changing my pen name and removing the forever-undone stories.
My Work: Some are originals that are going up on my FictionPress account (under the same name), but others, like ten or twenty Megamind one-shots, 3 huge AU fics (one for Princess Tutu, one for Yu-Gi-Oh!, and one I really love for Frozen), and a whole bunch of other stuff will be posted here as soon as their quality is high enough. (I have little time to write during school, so I post things very irregularly. Clearly I'm not alone in that.)
I currently have two poems up, from the perspectives of Raven from Teen Titans and Shion of Please Save My Earth. I also have two Keyshipping drabbles (posted as one story) for Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal, and two one-shots (one for Vaseshipping, the other for Devotionshipping) for Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters.
As a shipper, I feel some need for a list for my own reference on what I always like: Kataang, Sukka, Toko, Tokka, Ty Luko and Maiko (Avatar:TLA); InuKag, MirSan, and SessKagu (InuYasha); Ranma/Akane (Ranma 1/2); Peach-, Polar-, and Vaseshipping (Yu-Gi-Oh!); BBRae and RobStar (Teen Titans); Shion/Mokuren and Arisu/Rin (Please Save My Earth); HaruKyon and Itsyuki (Koizumi/Yuki) (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya); Chae-gyong/Shin (Goong); Tsukushi/Tsukasa (Hana Yori Dango); Peter Pan/Alice (Disney crossover); MegaRox (Megamind); Fakiru and MyRue (Princess Tutu); Rayne, Mal/Inara, Wash/Zoe, Simon/Kaylee (Firefly); KeiBell (Ah! My Goddess); and so on.
Fave Books: Just about anything from Nagaru Tanigawa, Shakespeare, and Mary Baker Eddy.
Quotes I Really Like (aka the optional section I put for my own amusement):
Avatar: The Last Airbender (ATLA): The Desert: Sokka: Drink cactus juice! It'll quench ya! It's the quenchiest!
(Later) Sokka: It's . . . a giant . . mushroom. MAYBE IT'S FRIENDLY! (flailing arms and bowing): Friendly mushroom! Mushy giant friend!
(Later) Sokka: (dramatically) Momo NOO! You've killed us all!
Katara: No, he hasn't. (waterbends water back out from sand)
Sokka: Oh, riiiight - bending.
ATLA: The Fortuneteller: Katara: You're just saying that because you're going to make yourself unhappy your whole life.
Sokka: That woman is crazy! My life will be CALM and HAPPY and JOYFUL!! (kicks rock,which knocks against sign and hits him in the head, knocking him down)
Sokka (from off-camera, only his hand visible from his position on the ground): That doesn't prove anything!
ATLA: The Ember Island Players: Actor-Zuko: HONOR!
InuYasha (IY) (English dub): Mystical Hand of the Amorous Monk, Miroku
Miroku (to Kagome): I wish for you to bear me a son.
Inuyasha (uncontrollably twiching eyebrow): Huh?!
Kagome (deadpan): And why would I do that?!
Miroku: In the case that I do not defeat Naraku, (pulls Kagome to him) I would like a son to continue the family mission. (Inuyasha shoves himself between them, pushing Kagome behind him protectively)
Inuyasha: Hands off, priest! Your only family mission is lechery!
Miroku (calm): I'm a monk, not a priest.
Inuyasha (furious): Don't EVER consider laying a hand on Kagome again!
Kagome (surprised): Inuyasha . . .
Miroku (revelatory): Oh, I beg your pardon; I thought you no more then a companion. But apparently you are in love with Kagome . . . (Inuyasha freezes with a blush on his face. Kagome just stares with her mouth open at the back of Inuyasha's head. Miroku rubs the back of his head with his cursed hand) My, this is awkward.
Inuyasha (blushing harder): Well y-you've got it all wrong, s-she's just a-a jewel detector! (Kagome gets pissed off look on her face)
Kagome: Is that all I am to you?! Oh, how could I forget? You've got a thing for dead girls! (turns away and crosses her arms. Miroku and Inuyasha both look surprised - not every day Kagome accuses someone of being a necrophiliac)
Kagome: Who should I help? Miroku's a lot nicer than Inuyasha
Inuyasha: You wouldn't dare betray me!
Miroku: You can't really blame her. You could be nicer to her.
Inuyasha: Shut up! What do you know?
Kagome: You could learn a lot from Miroku about how to treat women!
Miroku: Like being more gentle.
Kagome: Exactly! Being more gentle!
Miroku (sly tone): Like this! (reaching for Kagome's butt)
Kagome: Ahh! Keep your hands away from me!
Inuyasha: I told you not to touch her!
IY: Jinenji, Kind yet Sad: Kagome (matter-of-fact): I'm going to be over at Jinenji's farm, so don't even think about attacking there, okay? If you hurt me, you'll all have to die, 'cause InuYasha here will have to avenge me!
InuYasha (surprised): I am?! Says who?
Kagome (threatening): You'd better avenge me! What am I supposed to do if you don't?!
InuYasha (relenting): Fine, I'll avenge you already.
IY: The Lucky Two-Timing Scoundrel: Sango: Sit! (Inuyasha flinches in horror--and nothing) No luck. I guess it only works when Kagome does it.
Inuyasha: (relieved and nervous) Ha! 'Course it does! It took you this long to figure that out? (nervous laughter)
IY: Nursing Battle Of The Rival Lovers
Grandpa Higurashi (on phone with Kagome's school): Yes, she'll be staying home from school again. Huh? It's nothing more than a simple cold, but this time it's for real. (pause of realization) Oh dear.
IY: Sota's Brave Confession Of Love
Inuyasha: Stop makin' excuses! C'mere! (grabs Sota by the back of his shirt and starts carrying him down the stairs by it.)
Sota: Hey! Stop!
Kagome: Hey! Wait Inuyasha!
Inuyasha (throws Sota out onto front step): Off you go! And don't come back until you've told her, you got that?!
Sota: You're not serious!
Inuyasha: If you come back before you've told her then you're not gettin' back inside!
Sota: But this is my house!
The Simpsons: Any Given Sundance (s19): Homer (while smashing a Chute and Ladders board against the corner of a wall in rage): WHY--DOESN'T--LIFE--GIVE--ME--LADDERS?!
Brawl in the Family (s13): Homer (drunk): Look, the thing about my family is that there's five of us. Marge, Bart, Girl-Bart, the one who doesn't talk, and the fat guy. How I loathe him.
The Wizard of Evergreen Terrace (s10): Homer: That's boring, Carl. You're boring! Quit boring everyone!!
Firefly (F): Trash:
Jayne: Well, as a rule, I say, girlfolk ain't to be trusted.
River: (grinning) Jayne is a girl's name.
Jayne: Well, Jayne ain't a girl! She starts in on that girl's-name thing, (reaches into his pants) I'll show her good 'n' all, I got man parts!
Simon: I'm... trying to think of a way for you to be cruder. I just... it's not coming.
F: The Message
Wash: Oh my God, it's grotesque! Oh, and there's something in a jar.
(later) River (trying to eat a white spherical food hanging on a string from a stick) My food is problematic.
Jayne: Girl's a mind-readin' genius, can't even figure out how to eat an ice planet.
(later) Private Tracey: When you can't run, you crawl, an' when you can't crawl . . .
Zoe: You find someone to carry you.
F: Serenity (Pilot): Mal: We have done the impossible, and that makes us mighty.
F: Ariel: River: They took Christmas away.
Jayne: What the hell now?
River: I came downstairs for the shiny presents. They took the tree and the stockings. Nothing left but coal.
Jayne: (to Simon) Would you shut her up?
River: Don't look in the closet either. It's greedy. It's not in the spirit of the holiday.
Jayne: You shut the hell up right now, or so help me, I will shut you up.
F: War Stories: (Mal has explained Wash's desire to have the captain and Zoe sleep together to resolve "burning sexual tension".)
Mal: I know it's a... (puts Zoe's hands on his hip and shoulder) difficult mission, but you and I... (places his hands likewise on her) have to get it on.
Zoe: I understand. We have no choice. (deadpan) Take me, sir. Take me hard.
Jayne: (walking in) Well, somethin' about that is just downright unsettlin'. (They lean in awkwardly to kiss. Wash grabs Zoe and pulls her away.)
F: Objects In Space
River: She understands. She doesn't comprehend.
InuYasha the Movie: The Castle Beyond The Looking-Glass
Kagome (by cages with barking dogs): Will you lacks be quiet?! Sit! (Dogs obey and a cry is heard off-screen. Kagome and Sota turn to see Inuyasha, making out with the ground as a result of the command.)
Kagome: Inuyasha? What are you doing here?
Inuyasha (angry, as usual): What're ya talking about, Kagome? (He leaps up) You took too long getting back so I came for you! (A group of schoolchildren approach and Kagome panics. She pulls him with her into a nearby phone booth and out of sight of the camera.)
Inuyasha: Hey, what're you doin'?
Kagome (whispering): Hiding, or at least trying to.
Inuyasha (sarcastic): Ha ha, very funny. (Children pass, staring and talking about the photo booth and its occupants as the view switches to them crammed into the tiny booth) So what took you so long?
Kagome: I wanna spend time here, is that such a big deal?
Inuyasha: We ain't got the time! We have to go find the Sacred Jewel shards, got it?! Besides, let me remind you that it's your fault the Jewel shattered in the first place!
Kagome (leaning closer as she yells): I know that!
Inuyasha (leaning in as well, letting her move back): No you don't!
Sota (outside, rubbing his head as they argue): Once they start fighting, it never changes . . .
Inuyasha (bargaining--for him): Once we've got all the shards, you can come back here anytime you want!
Kagome (sarcastic): Oh gee, how very kind of you! You can't do a thing without me!
Sota (leaning into booth and putting money in the slot, setting it to take 4 pictures): I want some precious memories of how dumb you two look.
(They don't hear him. Inuyasha opens his mouth to speak when there is a flash. From outside, we can see a large crowd gathering around the closed booth, and hear them from inside it.)
Inuyasha: What was that? Get down Kagome!
(Flash) Kagome: Stop it!
Inuyasha: Gah! IRON REAVER, SOUL STEALER! (Flash)
Kagome: Knock it off!
Sota (sighing): There they go again, making a scene. (Flash)
(at the same time) Kagome: SIT!
(at the same time) Inuyasha: AUGH! (Flash)
The pictures are shown: The first one has them still arguing, the second has Inuyasha shoving Kagome behind him to protect her from the camera, the third has Inuyasha preparing to strike the camera down with Kagome tugging on his shoulder trying to get him to stop, and the fourth has Kagome yelling sit and pointing at Inuyasha while his leg and hair show him halfway through succumbing to the spell.
She's The Man
Viola, disguised as her twin Sebastian, gets hit in the crotch with a soccer ball. She's barely affected, but everyone else winces in sympathy.
Viola: What? (Realizes what just happened) Oh. Right. (clutches her crotch and doubles over) AAAAH! OH, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! IT BURNS!
(Later) Duke (to Olivia): Do you like . . . cheese?
(Later) Toby: How come when I wanted to ask Eunice out everyone made fun of me, but then Sebastian likes her and suddenly she's cool? Screw you guys, I hate high school.
IY: Love Thy Neighbor: "She was crushing his ego before his very eyes! Come on, did he look like a boy to her? He was a man, soldier, warrior, GOD! . . . okay, so maybe the last one was overdoing it a little, but a boy? Ouch."
LnC: And Then There Was Light: Lois: "Your clone isn't Superman—he can never be Superman. And, no matter what method you choose to attain that goal, you will never be Superman either. It's not the Suit. It's not the powers. It's not even the DNA! It's something you'll never have—character. To be Superman, you have to care about something…something other than yourself. You have to be Clark Kent."
Ouran High School Host Club: Oceanic Escapades: (Haruhi, Hikaru, and Tamaki are all trapped in a cave. Tamaki has been stung by a jellyfish and wants to know a commoner remedy they can use. Haruhi is embarrassed about the one remedy she knows, so she whispers it. After a moment of stunned disbelief. . . )
Tamaki: I am the king of the Ouran Host Club. And the king fears nothing.
Haruhi: Oh really . . . you wouldn't dare.
Hikaru: What are you saying? I would gladly pee on Tono's leg!
Tamaki: And I would gladly allow him to pee on my leg!
Just about anywhere: Dad: Because . . . shut up. (Also: "Shut up," he helpfully explained.)
Home: Emily: This is the only way to eat an apple--WITH A KNIFE!
Me (nervously): Why are you eating that next to my head?
Emily: (laughs evilly)
Home: Emily (after taking out trash): Why do we have so much crap?! It just accumulates!
Me: Yep, crap does that.
Emily: And I have to deal with it! If it was up to me, half of our house would have been gone long ago.
Car: Dad: You have to take HG & D [sex ed].
Emily: But WHY?! It's gross.
Dad: Hey, it is not gross. HG & D is a class that helps you learn how to take care of your body. Taking care of your body is just like taking care of a giant doll. You have to bathe the doll and understand the doll--
Emily: And put vaseline on its eyes! [My sister, the doll expert TT.TT]
Dad: Wait, what?
Dinner Table: Emily: Nobody likes aliens, they like priestesses with super-hot boyfriends! (Referring to Fushigi Yuugi and Inuyasha, respectively.)
(later) Emily: The Second Coming, dot dot dot, OF POCAHONTAS!!
(later) Emily: If reality is false, and everything false is NOT reality, then what is it I ask you? The answer, of course, is TORTELLINI!
IA: Mr. Giromini: Trees were meant to die for your education. It's their purpose in life, except for that whole oxygen thing.
IA: Mr. Giromini: I know all about instigating too. I'm the instigator for the IA staff. I go into the teacher's lounge and say Obama sucks--they go nuts!
Me (at a play around the age of 5): GET TO THE STABBING!!

I AM CALM! I'M THE PICTURE OF CALMNESS! NOW GET OUT OF MY WAY BEFORE I THROW YOU THROUGH A WALL!
I swear to drunk I'm not God.
Most learn by observation. Some learn by experimentation. And then there are those who actually TOUCH the fire to see if it's hot.
If at first you don't suceed, destroy all evidence that you ever tried.
Just when I was getting used to yesterday, today came along and messed me up.

Beloved Actor, Father, and Husband
We will remember you.
Leaves from the vine,
Falling so slow,
Like fragile, tiny shells,
Drifting in the foam,
Little soldier boy,
Comes marching home,
Brave soldier boy,
Come marching home.
Hope you like my work!
