This avatar - so not mine. Do you like it though? I finally changed it from Skylit Blooming to Road to a New World (names of my own choosing).
Name: Something. Guess.
Age: Old enough.
Sex: Male. Yes, with a penis and everything.
Likes: A lot of things like money, power, world domination, and pocky. Anime and manga rank up there somewhere as well. A good book never hurts either.
Dislikes: Annoying people, annoying questions from annoying people, racism, homophobia, bad music, Mary Sues, when excellent fics get discontinued, and much, much more.
Location: There is that little flag thing in the upper left hand corner. Look at it.
I, Ariaeris, do solemnly swear to review all fics I read, regardless of the number of reviews, its age, or anything else.
I have joined the Review Revolution.
(To join the Review Revolution simply copy and paste the above into your profile and then do your bit and review the fics you read. It's only fair. And if you don't, Karma will come and bite you on the ass.)
-(Not that I actually do this unfortunately, but it is a nice sticker, and anyone else who is actually serious about this pact can just take it off my profile conveniently. I'm a bad reviewer...)
Favorite’s time! Everybody loves these!
Books: Harry Potter, The Old Kingdom Series, Artemis Fowl series, Pendragon series, and a few others. Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights thanks to my term paper and quite a few books on philosophy and ethics as well, courtesy of a sparked interest. And a college-level Psychology textbook, which is turning out to be far more interesting than it should be.
Music: Pretty much anything. I like Evanescence, Lacuna Coil, Delta Goodrem, Kelly Clarkson, Three Days Grace, Within Temptation, Avril Lavigne, D.H.T., Paramore, September, Fall Out Boy, P!nk, Natasha Bedingfield, Linkin Park, Owl City, Shakira, Utada Hikaru, and the list just grows from there.
Games: Kingdom Hearts (1, 2, CoM, and 358/2 Days), Final Fantasy (VII, X, X-2, XIII, Crisis Core, and Dissidia), Fire Emblem (7-11), Pokémon (most of them), Phoenix Wright (and Apollo Justice!), Ōkami, The World Ends With You, Castlevania, and a few others as well.
TV Shows: Not many here. I kind of lost interest in television recently so I don't really know what's on. I used to watch Smallville, Avatar, House M.D., X-Play, and Charmed. That's it.
Anime and/or Manga: Naruto, xxxHoLic (Rou as well), Death Note, Code Geass, Wolf Guy - Ōkami no Monshou, One Piece, Kuroshitsuji, Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles, Bleach, Yu-gi-oh! (DM, Gx, and especially 5Ds), Darker than BLACK, and a sparse few others. Some people I know are trying to suck me into a few more fandoms. They're winning.
You still alive? Good! Read on! Forward march!
Fandoms: Anything on the favorites list above, really. For now though, I have fics in the Harry Potter, Fire Emblem, Naruto, Final Fantasy, xxxHoLiC, Yu-gi-oh! 5Ds, Kingdom Hearts, and Wolf Guy - Ōkami no Monshou fandoms (I even created the last one!), as well as Twilight, believe it or not. I use to check in with the Naruto one religiously, but it has grown to be a very scary place in my opinion, and I try to keep a distance between me and it. The One Piece fandom is good for the occasional Zoro/Luffy fic, but my newest love is xxxHoLiC, which has a squee worthy amount of Doumeki/Watanuki (but never enough Haruka/Watanuki) and excellent fics.
Pairings: 'Kay here we go. I'll read pretty much anything as long as it is good. I have a preference to slash, though. I'll still read yuri and het though. Yaoi is just my favorite.
This could be a little long people so, if you are even interested, you can skip to whatever fandom you prefer. Pairings should be categorized by type. I think. On a final note crack pairings rock. Crossovers do as well.
Harry/Narcissa (A new love of mine; will someday combine this with Lucius and have an elder Malfoy/Harry threesome.)
Hermione/Ginny (I don't really know why.)
Yaoi: (It will always be last. I mean it takes up so much space!)
Sirius/Harry (I cannot put into words how obsessed I am with this pairing! SIRRY ROCKS!)
Het: NaruSaku (only after the Time Skip though), TsuJira, ShikaIno
Yaoi: (is it just me, or is their more Yaoi potential in everything then Het or Yuri? Maybe it's just me...) KyuuNaru, ItaNaru, PainNaru (zOMG People of Mass Destruction shipping - er, God/Deva Path Pain only, please), KibaNaru, SaiNaru, KakaNaru, ShikaNaru, SasuNaru (I have an odd love/hate relationship between these two... mainly because of my absolute hatred for Sasuke in general), NejiNaru, GaaNaru, DeiNaru, SasoDei, ZabuHaku, etc.
Phoenix Wright (Gyakuten Saiban):
Diego Armando/Mia Fey (Tragedy underpinned by hotness; can't beat it, though I don't particularly like it either though.)
Franziska von Karma/Adrian Andrews (For the secret BDSM/cuteness fan in me. And for making that combination possible in my eyes.)
Miles Edgeworth/Phoenix Wright (I'm a sucker for canon-shaped things...)
Dahlia Hawthorne/Incredible Suffering and Torment (OTP!!)
Yu-Gi-Oh!/Yuugiou/DM (5Ds is coming soon) (Please forgive the use of Japanese Names; I used them only because they are written that way in the 'official' Shipper's List):
Yu-Gi-Oh! GX/Yuugiou Gx:
Johan/Juudai (This pairing, to me, is like the distilled form of the soul-mate cliché. Not to mention that they had subtext like whoa.)
Oliver/Clark (One of my sole OTPs in all of fanfiction, no matter how paradoxical it sounds to have multiple One True Pairings. Damn you svgurl410, among others, for being so incredibly awesome.)
Domovoi Butler/Artemis Fowl (The only pairing I can see in the books. There’s just something about the level of devotion and the depth of emotions shared between the two that rings of romance. Well, in my mind at least.)
Doumeki/Watanuki (Of course - really, CLAMP must be commended for being ridiculously awesome. Or at least for creating a setting where I love a pairing so much that it is more fun for them being in the denial stage than in the outright relationship stage.)
Riku/Sora (I actually hated this pairing for a long time, but that changed when I read Advanced Theory by Dualism. That… That fic changed a lot of things for me. I’d advise anyone who wants a genuinely heart-wrenchingly beautiful story to read it.)
Something creative, considering that I might as well have copy and pasted this off someone else's profile.
Final Fantasy (Pairings listed in chronologically descending order):
Tidus/Yuna (I hate that Final Fantasy can give me so many attractive slash options, while at the same time making me fall so much in love with the canon couple. Not that that will stop me, but still…)
Snow/Serah (I feel horrible about it, but I was consumed by the fluff. I can’t see either of them with anyone else.)
Fang/Lightning (Sure, Fang/Vanille is by far more close to canon, but God, if this isn’t the hottest Yuri pairing I’ve ever considered…)
Zack/Cloud (OTP. No doubt about it. I can’t stand Zack with anyone else unless Cloud is involved. Aerith is the only exception to that rule, but I prefer Zack/Cloud/Aerith to Zack/Aerith any day).
Jecht/Tidus (No shame about this whatsoever. Their relationship was by far both the most complex and the best.)
Zack/Cloud/Aerith (This pairing kills me. Two of the people Cloud loved most, both out of his reach. Heart-wrenching for all three of them.)
Fire Emblem (Pairings listed in chronologically descending order):
Lyn/Florina (This pairing, like, introduced me to yuri. I'm fairly sure it did the same for others.)
Lloyd/Eliwood (Yes! Yes! This pairing is mine I say, mine! I was the one who dreamt it, who wrote it, who was insane enough to post it! It's mine and mine alone! Mwahahaha!) Threesomes/Moresomes:
Hector/Eliwood/Lyn ...Well, that was quite a few pairings, wasn't it? Don't worry; the list will continue to grow as my interests do, so look forward to the ever-changing List of Pairings!
...Well, that was quite a few pairings, wasn't it? Don't worry; the list will continue to grow as my interests do, so look forward to the ever-changing List of Pairings!
Ariaeris-sensei: Lesson Number 1
It has come to my attention recently that a term I thought was wildly popular actually wasn't. How did I know this? I just learned it myself and, upon seeing someone else use it as well, they confessed that it was a fairly rare term.
That is unacceptable. For such an amusing term, everyone should use it with a smile on their face!
So, I introduce you to an apparently long neglected word: Plunnies
Plot + Bunnies = Plunnies
Please, support the Plunny revolution and become a Plunnyite! Use the term plunny, and watch as people both scratch their heads in confusion and smile secretively at the amusing name. Remember, plunnies are what make the world go round (fanfiction world that is).
Plunnies: They rule you.
Ariaeris-sensei: Lesson Number 2
Unlike plunnies, this should be a term many of you are familiar with. For those less Japanese inclined or, you poor souls, who have never received a glomp in your life, a glomp is essentially a 'flying tackle hug.'
Now, I have no impressive mathematical formulae to use in order to describe what a glomp actually is, but I do have a few instructions:
1. Make sure you don't glomp anyone in a small, contained area. People glomped are liable to hurt themselves in such places after experiencing a glomp.
Glomp; noun: 1. An affectionate hug between close friends at high speed velocity. 2. A flying tackle hug. 3. A cute, Japanese way of saying 'hi' (according to anime). verb: 1. To flying tackle hug someone. 2. To assault someone with your arms and legs wrapped around them, much like an octopus. 3. To glomp someone/something (gotta love recursive definitions).
Now, go and glomp a loved one.

Harry Potter/Crossover Slash Alphabet
A while ago, in the midst of being frustrated over the fact that chapter four of Ardent Argent was much harder to write than I had planned, I decided to begin posting a series of oneshots based on crossovers with the Harry Potter series that, with my writing style, naturally included a slash pairing (or more). So far, I'm a little over a fourth done, but I still have a long way to go! Listed below are the currently complete oneshots, the series included, as well as the pairing and, as a little teaser, I've included the titles of the upcoming oneshots as well. I'll make sure to keep this list updated so that you can just skip to whatever oneshot interests you most!
A is for Alacrity - Twilight Saga/HP - Jacob Black/Harry Potter
Much to my surprise and delight, one of my reviewers for Desirous requested that they could copy the format of my alphabet and use it for my own. As I would never limit a fellow author and it really wasn’t my right to deny someone something that wasn’t even technically mine, and because the world is always in need of more good HP/Crossover slash, I gave them my full consent.
The author’s name is .x.X.x,Nefarious.x.X.x. and s/he has already posted their first oneshot. In honor of them, and in the hopes of them getting more readers and reviewers, I’m copying the alphabet format above and using it for their fics.
So, the current state of Nefy’s alphabet is:
A is for Accismus – xxxHoLiC/HP – Harry Potter/Kimihiro Watanuki
If anyone else wants to do an alphabet of their own, feel free to. I only request that you tell me; I’m in dire need of some good HP/Crossover slash! I’ll also favorite you and your story and place a copy of your alphabet on my profile, so that you can get more readers/reviewers as well!
I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.
I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.
I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.
We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.
I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.
I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.
I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.
I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.
We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.
I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.
I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.
I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.
I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.
I am the woman who died when the EMTs stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.
I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I didn't have to always deal with society hating me.
I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.
I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.
I am the person ashamed to tell my own friends I'm a lesbian, because they constantly make fun of them.
I am the boy tied to a fence, beaten to a bloody pulp and left to die because two straight men wanted to "teach me a lesson."
I am the gay male student that had to switch to another high school on my senior year, because I told my teachers that I was gay. One said that I was going to hell, the other wanted to cure me.
I am the person that cannot act/be themselves in fear of what others will think of me and if they will accept me.
I am your best friend, the same person you grew up with, and told your secrets too. The person you can't talk to anymore, because my partner is a woman.
I am the daughter and best friend, the girl you raised and loved. Now you won't talk to me because I shattered your dreams of ever having children, and you are afraid of how to tell your friends about me and not be embarrassed.
I am the person, with the same fears, hurts, needs and wants as you. I bleed, I breathe, I understand, I live...With our hearts open and our eyes closed we are all the same people. Living life the best way we know how, with what we have been given.
Repost this if you believe homophobia is wrong.
Hello everyone in the world of fanfiction! I know I have been absolutely horrible lately about updating; the next chapter of AMoM is already a month delayed, I dropped out of Kamerreon's drabble challenge, and Alexithymia and the MWAHA 'verse still need to be wrapped up. I really am sorry about how everything seems to be on hold; I have the typical excuses of school, a new job, college applications, but really, there is no excuse.
This little section isn't about that (though I do apologize; just thought I'd get that out there). No, I wouldn't interrupt the above anti-homophobia message for something as small as that. No, I have something much more important to say.
I got a flame today.
Now, even that fact is insignificant. Honestly, I don't really care to announce to the world that I received a poorly-written, grammatically incorrect, piece of shit from a reader whose brain capacity is tantamount to that of a speck of dust, but I think there is something that should be pointed out. Two things actually:
1. It was a homophobic flame.
2. It made light of the painful and destructive reality that is suicide.
I do not want to sound preachy. I do not want to act high and mighty. Everyone has a right to an opinion and no matter how much I might dislike said opinions, I acknowledge the fact that people are allowed to have them. I will not argue that one point of view is utterly and completely wrong; that would be the epitome of foolish. On a very personal level I have a deep abhorrence for homophobia and frivolity related to suicide, but I am not going to work myself up into a dither because of it.
What I am going to do is tell the cowardly piece of shit who dared tell me to go kill myself is that if he or she takes that attitude to anywhere else online and I find a way to know who this anonymous fool is, I will make their life a living hell. I understand the nature of the online community; anonymity removes some of our more basic controls over our language and behaviors and, without the fear of repercussion, many of us act in ways we would never dare to under public scrutiny. I understand that aspect completely, but that does not excuse such behavior.
Even if the Internet provides anonymity, we are all still human beings, subjected to our own personal whims, beliefs, and, yes, weaknesses. Telling someone to go kill themselves, without any regard to the person behind the computer, behind the anonymity, is not just stupid and immature, but dangerous. You're one person, one person who doesn't have the courage to leave an address to which I can reply to, one person who, in the long run, will have no significance in my life whatsoever.
But what happens if you did? What happens if I was depressed? What happens if I was thinking of committing suicide? What happens if I had poured my soul into the piece of work you flamed for such a reason as homophobia when in the story's summary I clearly declared the pairing as homosexual? You said that 'people came to see a good pairing?' Two things, flamer of mine: either you just clicked on my story without any regard to what I had written and decided to flame me because of something I had clearly warned beforehand (making you an idiot), or you clicked on my story for the sole purpose of flaming me (which would make you extremely petty).
Pettiness and idiocy; think of those two things. Back to my musings though: what if I had been on the edge of suicidal depression and you, through your comments, managed to be the final straw to push me over that edge? Because of either your idiocy or your pettiness, I committed suicide. Congratulations; you had a hand in the death of someone. You will never be charged with any crime, you will never be associated with any transgression, hell, and you may never know such an event took place. But doesn't that just make it worse? Every flame you leave, every idiotic or petty comment might be that final straw, that push over the edge, that little shove towards suicide. And all because you told a person to kill themselves.
Makes your 'review' seem a little less like a good idea, doesn't it? A family member close to me tried to commit suicide twice, my flamer. Guess what? It wasn't fucking funny. And you just going around, casually telling people to go kill themselves because either you are an idiot or a petty fool really pisses me off. I said I would never tear a person down because of their opinions, but this is not an opinion; this is you potentially being an accessory to someone's suicide.
Is it really worth it then? Is the minor thrill, that exercise of your free speech really that important that you would take a person's life for it? At the end of the day, can you really be happy with yourself because you managed to express your beliefs in such a way that, to someone who might be experiencing an emotional low point, they might actually take your advice? Do you really want that weight on your mind? Do you?
You might never read this; I'm actually expecting you not to. I might be coming off as a self-righteous prick here, but you know what? I honestly don't care. I think everything I've said here needed to be said. Too many times have I've seen cowardly flamers leave reviews in people's hard work telling them to kill themselves or that they should be killed just to scurry off, pleased with themselves, to some other part of the ever-so-anonymous Internet. It's disgusting, wrong, and in no way justifiable; what right do you, or anyone else as a matter of fact, have to tell someone they should kill themselves or be killed?
So anyone who reads this, just please take into account that while we are all anonymous here, we are all still people. The only thing without feelings on the Internet is the conduit we use; no matter who we are, writer, reviewer, flamer, et cetera, we all have opinions, individual thoughts, and emotions. The consequences of a careless word could span farther than you intended; a single thoughtless action could change another person's life.
And, in the end, is anyone willing to be responsible for another's death because we told them to kill themselves?
Ps: I'm probably going to remove this. I will admit that I wrote this as an emotional reaction and that my stance flip-flopped wildly throughout, from actively pursuing violence to vehemence to being preachy, but I stand by every single thing I've said here; I honestly do believe every single thing I wrote. I do want to apologize to anyone I might have offended inadvertently though, for I did not mean any harm, just to give my opinion on what I find to be one of the most disturbing reflections of human behavior I have seen on this site and others. I had only good intentions writing this and if that did not come across to the reader, then I apologize once more.
Pps: I’ve gotten quite a few PMs asking me to keep this message up, and to tell the truth, I don’t want to take it down either. So, I’m keeping it up untouched, postscript and terribly outdated beginning in all, so that the emotions behind it can remain preserved. A great big thank you to everyone who gave me a kind word after reading the kind-of rant; though I may not have replied to you all, your words meant more to me than you might ever know.
