Hi, I've been here for for quite a while already and reading back on my old profile description, it brought back memories from when I was typing it out as a silly, immature teenager with bad grammar back in 2007. It's not like I'm any less silly or immature or that my grammar has improved, but I'd like to think I've changed a bit.

I'm one of the delightful ghost readers in this site and you may not know me, but I stalk you long time. I know I've made some verbose and hopeful promises to myself (and in this space right here) in the past to start writing fics, but I don't have what it takes. I've been too lazy and too busy reading what others have been putting up that my dreams were placed in the back burner for too long. When the time came that I took it out again, it had burned into an unappetizing realization that I'm better off as a reader.

I've lurked in several fandoms in the past, but the ones I frequent the most would be: Naruto, Bleach, Card Captor Sakura, and Final Fantasy 8. Sorry, Harry Potter, I've been far too set in my ways.

So, yeah, I'm still doing the same business I've done for years: Stalk your stories, lurk forever in all the chapters, NEVER review. Or more like barely review. I'm sorry that I've been such a bad fan-girl and have only given very little reviews for the entire time that I've been on this site. I also have not made any connections at all with any of the authors, readers, community etc. even though I've been here for so long. I'm trying to change that now, but old habits die hard and I think the community here has undergone some changes too. Fare thee well ff.net's golden age! But, anyway, on a positive note, I'm still gonna be silently supporting fandoms and stories to the best of my abilities, so keep writing and reading whomever you are!

BTW/P.S.
Naruto (especially Ino Yamanaka) fangirl for life!

Chiaroscuro by boomvroomshroom reviews
"They say the only thing to fear is fear itself. That, and a motivated Nara." Shikamaru is born with his father's intelligence and his mother's work ethic. The world is turned sideways.

Fistful of Thorns by raining-down-hearts reviews
Ino Yamanaka usually claims to be perfect, but some recent mistakes have put her in situations that she absolutely hates, and her clan's displeasure with her isn't making life any easier, nor is living alone for the very first time. She decides to get stronger, but it's a much longer, rougher, more dangerous journey than she'd ever thought it would be.

Family Matters by yami-marron reviews
She had never really considered her relationship with Konoha. She never needed to. They were political partners as villages, and for her, an ambassador, it was enough. Only later, when she accepted Shikamaru's proposal, she noticed what exactly she was agreeing to. Mostly Ino/Temari friendship, Ino-Shika-Cho family, ShikaTema,ShikaIno, InoSai

Give Me All Your Love by miruutan reviews
Love is something that can't be taken; only given. But you can't choose who you want to give your love to. Shikamaru finds it ridiculously easy to love his sensei's son, but when Ino reaches out to him he's not sure how to reach back, if he even can.

The Yin Wife by dorcas reviews
Chichi offers to take Bulma camping on her land, promising Vegeta that she will protect his mate. It's meant to be a reminiscient trip for the two wives of Saiyans; however, when an old enemy rears its head once more, can Chichi keep her word, or will the prince arrive too late? Chichi-centric. Post-Cell. GC and VB by principle. Rated for violence.
