E.M. Praetorian, or Elder Master to some FFN members, seared my soul with her words and captured my heart with her love.
In the words of W. H. Auden to my most beloved, "You are my North, my South, my East, and West. My working week and my Sunday rest. My noon, my midnight, my talk, and my song."
For my inquiring readership, some yurianimeotaku trivia:
Y) Just in case you did not already guess from the declaration above, I am an "out" lesbian.
U) I have an evil Hentai mind and my beloved lovingly inspires it to new heights.
R) English is my first language, although sometimes I even wonder, especially since it was my major in college.
I) Caffeine is Kami.
A) I am old enough to know better, but young and stupid enough to try it anyway.
N) Yes, Hofftailing REALLY is my FFN senpai and the reason I started writing fan fiction.
I) I REALLY do read [and answer - unfortunately, due to FFN changes, authors have been rendered unable to directly answer their readers' reviews] ALL of my readers' reviews.
M) I hold my loyal readership's opinion in high regard and consider everything you all leave in your reviews.
E) "Nothing has done more to make us dumber or meaner than the anonymity of the Internet." - Aaron Sorkin
Yes, I disabled the "Anonymous Reviews" feature, because I believe MY life is way too short to deal with cowardly despicable people who hide behind anonymity to vent their mean petty jealousies. If you have something to say to me, say it to my face! In other words, register on this site.
O) I absolutely LOVE the deliberately trashy "Strawberry Panic!" anime, because I feel not everything needs to be pretentious to be thoroughly appreciated and enjoyed.
T) "Shizuma'd" is the blissed-out, often confused state of mind females experience after spending the night with Hanazono Shizuma (credit to 'Demel aka Sugador' for coining the term in a review & many thanks for letting me use it).
A) While I am a firm believer in keeping canon couples together in my fanfics, I am also a firm believer that love worth having is love worth fighting for.
K) Contrary to popular belief, my all-time favorite shoujo-ai/yuri anime couple is NOT ShizNat. It is Haruka and Michiru (Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune from "Sailor Moon").
U) Here is a list of my other favorite shoujo-ai/yuri anime 'couples' - some canon and some not (in order by anime):
Deunan & Hitomi (Appleseed)
I recently discovered the wonderful world of "Femslash" over on "Passion and Perfection."
Here is a list of my favorite femslash 'couples' - NONE of them are canon, but "hope springs eternal" (in order by television show):
Lexa & Clarke Griffin "Clexa" (The 100)
I am not a gamer, but since playing "Kindred Spirits on the Roof," I have to add the following favorite shoujo-ai/yuri 'couples' - some canon and some not (in order by personal favorites) to my ever-growing list:
Aki & Youka (Okujou no Yurirei-san/Kindred Spirits on the Roof) [MY FAVORITE]

My beloved E.M. Praetorian and I have begun a joint writing project under a different pen-name (to make life easier). If you have some free time, check out our works under "yuripraetorian."
Some people are like Slinkies - They do not add to the greater good, but they bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.
