Author has written 2 stories for Elite Beat Agents, and Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan/押忍!闘え!応援団.

'Allo. The name's 'Taru Rui (more usually addressed as 'Taru). I always told myself I wanted to join this site since I was like, eleven or something, but I never got around to it, because I told myself that I would join once I'd written at least a few good chapters of a story. That never happened (I've written multiple chapters, but they're quite embarrassingly terrible. Or I lost interest in the concept of the story. Haha), so eventually I just signed up for an account...

2011-08-05 UPDATE: Oh, I forgot about this thing. Updated profile. Maybe some other floating revisions to come.

Moving on!

Age: 19

Gender: Female

Likes: Sleep, music, art, drawing, writing, reading, video games, spontaneous conversation, singing, unusual (but well-written) fanfiction, oreos, guys that aren't imposing

Dislikes: Jerks, illiteracy, idiots, drama, squash (the food...), close-minded people, waking up early, men who don't understand my disdain for them

Video Game: Ouendan/Elite Beat Agents series, Mario Party 2/3. Right now my addiction is the Rhythm Tengoku series

Show: I have just stepped into Doctor Who and absolutely love it. I watch Supernatural but I'm waaaaay behind and I've seen things way out of order. Also, Drew Carey's Improv-a-Ganza, but I still love Whose Line. It's just... no more new material in Whose Line...

Characters: Ouendan: Ryuta, Shinta, Hayato. Mario: Luigi, Waluigi.

Pairings: I'LL TAKE ANYTHING! Actually, I enjoy non-romantic pairs.

Currently...: If you're going to expect anything at all, expect Ouendan/EBA fics. Since the main characters have veeeery veeeery little characterization in-game, I tend to write them in a combination of the popular Japanese fanon and my own little spin. Though, I think my EBA deviate from the J-fanon more than the Ouendan.

Works in Progress:

-The Sound of Cacophony (Elite Beat Agents/Ouendan xover) - WRITER'S BLOCK After the passing threat of the Rhombulan invasion, the Elite Beat Agents seek to strengthen themselves for future situations. And what better to do than to visit the Ouendan, the group that pioneered musical motivation? -- Chapter 3 in the works. Formerly titled There's More to it Than That.

-Off-Days (Elite Beat Agents/Ouendan) - WRITER'S BLOCK So... what exactly DO the Agents and Ouendan do when they're not on a mission? -- I wrote a chapter but I hate it as of now. XD So once I write a RESPECTABLE first chapter, I'll throw in the cracky omake one.

Ideas that are floating around in my conscious:

So. Uh. Yay? I get writer's block a lot, so... don't expect me to update too much (if I do...)

I'm a bit more of an artist than I am a writer, so if you want, visit my deviantArt.
