Fan-fiction style: Balanced, and OC-centric. By balanced, I mean I don't focus on only romance, or mainly action, or consistent suspense, or go for comedic parodies. Actually, by balanced I mean I have not found my niche.
Fan-fiction Bio: I am new to fan-fiction writing. I always felt insecure writing about characters that aren't mine, in a world I didn't create. However, I have always replayed movies or stories or video game plots in my head, and making it go somewhere different, or adding in a new character of my own design, since before I could even spell my own name. I think it is natural for most people to do as such. However, it wasn't until last year that I attempted at writing a fan fiction, which still surprises me to this day. I admit, I am one of those who make fun of most fan-fiction writers, until someone put me in my place, showed me some actually decent fan fiction, and then challenged me by saying I can't make fun of something I don't understand. That's true. I conceded, decided I'd write a fan-fiction. At the time I was replaying Star Ocean: Til the End of Time ( (c) Square Enix). So I decided to chose it as my victim, and thus, Chasing the Dragon's Flame was brought about on a whim. I drew up an OC, and then wrote about her. At first, it was going to be my best attempt at writing a hallmark Mary-Sue epic, but then I scrapped the idea. I instead took the challenge seriously. I cringe when I reread it, but I promised I'd finish it. On the side, as a break from straining my brain over what to do next, I began to write up a list of things that would annoy the various characters, and those soon became a lot more popular than my story. Go figure. It's a quick, funny read.


Ninety five percent of the kids out there are concerned with being popular and fitting in. If you're part of the five percent that aren't, copy this, put it in you profile, and add your name to the list. AnimeKittyCafe, Hyperactivley Bored, Gem W, Bara-Minamino, Tsuyu Mikazuki, Weasel Chick, Revenant666, dragonsroar, foxdude33, FallenLex, Soelle, Moon-Freak00, clam theif, ReDeadphobia, TriggerHappy777, Princess-0f-Hearts, Fuzzie Wuzzy, Tachyglossus

Weird is good, strange is bad, and odd is when you don't know which to call someone. Weird is the same as different, which is the same as unique, then weird is good. If you are weird and proud of it, copy this onto your profile! (Don't copy this part - it's just my personal two cents - but if weird is the same as different, and different the same as unique, everyone is weird because everyone is unique from the almost-infinite sum of genetic make up, life expereinces, and disposition - but if everyone IS weird because everyone is unique, then the point becomes moot, and we are all the same in that we are all differnt - which makes no one weird. Nonetheless, I'm still proud every time someone calls me weird. It means I stand out - even if it is in a bad way. Not that I act out for attention. In fact, I'd rather not get into any sort of encounter as I am disenchanted with the majority of the human race.)

98 percent of teenagers do or has tried smoking pot. If you're one of the 2 percent who hasn't, copy & paste this in your profile. (And this is a feat since I live in the pot capital of Canada! Well, the Province which has a huge industry of marijuana... good old BC)

If you think that those stupid kids should just give that God-forsaken Trix rabbit some Trix, copy this into your profile.(You know, those commercials breed racism and discrimination, as well as constitutes double standards, to children at a young age. GIVE THE DAMN RABBIT THE TRIX AND LET'S ALL GET ALONG preferably by ignoring each other.)

If you have ever had a mad laughing fit for absolutely no reason, copy and paste this into your profile.(It's a common occurence in my home. If we aren't breaking into mad fits of laughter over seemingly no or rediculous reasons, we are breaking into songs. If we're too lazy to sing, we'll take turns just saying the lyrics to each other as conversationally as possible.)

Drawing Board
The Last Unicorn: The Unicorn who was once mortal may have finished the epic quest with her unusual comrades, but now the greatest feat of courage was laid before her: immortality. Immortals do not love, and do not regret - for this reason, they manage to maintain longivity without sinking into deep depressions or insanity. Mainly a one-shot monologue thing... sorta/// probably won't ever write it. I have too much respect for The Last Unicorn to butcher it.
Parasite Eve: Post Parasite Eve 2. I haven't thought too much on this, but about making a story about one of the carriers of the gene that Eve (and inadvertently, Aya) had - since it says that this occurrence is likely to happen again, and Pierce and Maeda began to work on singling out those likely to have it, and train or prepare them before they manifest. I doubt I'll ever do it, but feel free to use this idea if it hasn't been done (I have yet to search out PE fics)
Star Ocean 3: You'd think Star Ocean 3 was my favorite game of all time... but the truth is, it isn't. If I like something a LOT, I would NEVER write fanfiction for it; it obviously was perfect the way it was. I like it, nonetheless. AHEM! Anyway, I'm thinking of maybe writing a sequel to Chasing the Dragon's Flame once I finish the blasted story. However, though it will feature Bella, I do not believe that she will be the protagonist. I might switch to a first person point of view for the hell of it. This is just a maybe. It will definitely take place a five or more years later, if I write it.

Drawing Board where I have an idea for fanfiction, but have not yet formally written anything. In the drawing board I will just list what the fan-fic will be of (IE if it is from Final Fantasy, or Lord of the Rings, or something like that - though I'd never write a LotR fanfic since I never got into it), and maybe add the premise of what it will be like.

WIP Works in Progress. This is where things that are being written, and have not yet been uploaded, or only up to 5 chapters have been uploaded. It will be listed by story title, and which show/book/game it is written for. Obviously, since it's already on the site, I won't be typing in a summary. Scroll down and look at my list of 'stories authored' for the summary.

Ongoing Projects this is where I get serious. Ongoing Projects is where I list titles (and the continuity they are for) that have six or more chapters, but is not yet finished, or I took down any number of chapters because of a major change early on, and need to rewrite things so to have continuity. Obviously, since it's already on the site, I won't be typing in a summary. Scroll down and look at my list of 'stories authored' for the summary. I'll also include a useless statistic that takes the amount of days since the story being published versus the amount of chapters. So it will be #chapters/#days

Completed Oh, wow, I don't think I will EVER have anything under this category! Completed means it has a beginning and an end. It may still be undergoing edits here or there, but they will be minor (grammar, spelling, tightening long silly descriptions, clarifying verb use, change of diction etc). If it ends up getting a major change that will reflect in the plot or overall style or feel of the fan-fic, it gets dropped back into Ongoing Projects..

She journeyed to the Mountains of Barr seeking dragons, disillusioned about fellow humans. However, a feud of warring countries left her in a crowded dungeon, but that was just the beginning of her trials and triumphs. OC-Centric - R&R please.
