Author has written 5 stories for Naruto.
10-28-2012 - I've changed my name from Bittersweet Smiles. Just a heads up for the people I've spoken with before and are confused about who I am.
I'm female, and an adult. I go by a lot of names, but here I'm Lorelei.
I like reading, singing (I have a pretty damn good voice, if I do say so myself), sketching, yaoi, yuri, fantasy, fiction, some sci-fi, musical bands/artists that are far too many to list, mangas/animes that are far too many to list, games that are far too many to list, soda, juice, and mild temperatures.
I dislike bigots, being labeled, people lying about themselves to gain attention (I did when I was much younger; I look back and think I was being a stupid, fake little brat), people lying to themselves, people getting angry at the stupidest things, arrogance, rudeness, my own awkwardness, getting sick from eating things I like, school, insects (especially wasps and anything similar; I freak the hell out), pollen, allergies, caffeine, and extreme temperatures.
I'm a bit of a grammar nazi. Just a bit. If there are so many errors that the story looks like it was done by a child, I will either comment on it or just not read it. If there are only a couple of errors, I won't comment, but I will notice and correct them (as well as I can) in my head. Its just how I am. Unfortunately, I'm not very observant and things very easily escape my notice.
I try to read as much as possible (even reading things multiple times). I read so much on here, that I'm digging just to find something more. The stories I'm currently reading go from 7k to 15k words per chapter, and I'm becoming a bit spoiled to those numbers. Short just doesn't cut it for me anymore.
P.S.: Don't get angry or upset if I say something stupid in a review or message. I honestly don't try to offend, but often things just blurt out and I only realize that I should have not said something far too late to change it or take it back.
5-20-2012 - I've moved past Naruto. My current obsessions are Tales of Symphonia and Tales of the Abyss, although my interest is dying with the severe drop in available stories. I dip sometimes into Legend of Zelda and now Myst. I realized that my writing previously was horrible and did the worst possible thing: stop writing. That was two years ago, and now that I'm getting ideas for new stories, I find that I'm out of practice and can't even write a simple one-shot. At least now I know more about the importance of planning and character development, but that doesn't mean I can implement them, much less make it flow.
