Here's some info about me:
Age: Early thirties. Way too old to stay interested in fanfiction? I don't think so.
Nationality: Polish. I was born and still live in Warsaw.
What I'm interested in: Apart from reading fics and sleeping? Well, I guess that'd be geography, foreign languages and psychology, not necessarily in this order.
Favorite manga: Rurouni Kenshin, Vinland Saga, Angel Sanctuary, Blade of the Immortal. And lately Noragami.
Favorite anime: Rurouni Kenshin: Tsuiokuhen, Cowboy Bebop, Toward the Terra, Black Lagoon, Fullmetal Alchemist (both series), Gankutsuou, Ouran High School Host Club, Darker Than Black, Samurai Champloo, Yami no Matsuei, Kaiketsu Zoro, Grave of the Fireflies.
Books: Usually SF and fantasy, but not only that. My favorite writers would be Isaac Asimov, Stanisław Lem, Haruki Murakami, Ian McEwan, Stanisław Mrożek. I'm not into chick flicks, political thrillers or detective stories.
Music:- game/anime soundtracks, alternative rock and symphonic metal, mostly. Kevin Matisyn's voice = pure win; I could listen to this guy all day long.
Movies: Das Boot (by Wolfgang Petersen), the greatest film of all times. ;) It's WWII from the German point of view, with wonderful music and a beautiful, twisted ending.
Games: RPGs, especially Japanese ones. My favorite games/series are those I used to write fics for: Valkyrie Profile, Star Ocean, Xenosaga, Final Fantasy. But I also enjoyed titles such as The Witcher, Might & Magic (not to be mistaken with Heroes of Might & Magic, though I love those, too), Tales of..., Shadow Hearts, Resonance of Fate, Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale and so on.
Fictional male characters I'm pathetically obsessed with: Keith Anyan, Hei, Squall Leonhart (I used to love him at seventeen, seriously), Sephiroth, Seymour Guado, Kuja, Balthier, Kenshin Himura (obsession bordering on insanity), Severus Snape, Edward Elric, Albel Nox, Gaignun Kukai Jr./Rubedo, Lezard Valeth, Bruce Wayne... and practically every single guy with an unpleasant past, either silver or red hair, wielding a katana and wearing a white shirt. Yeah, I have some sort of fetish when it comes to white shirts. And vests. And... oh, nevermind.
I'm utterly fascinated with the tragic character of the Count of Monte Cristo (Edmond Dantes) from the anime/manga Gankutsuou. I read Dumas' novel a few times as a young teen, but it took me over a decade to understand how awesome this story and its main character truly are.
Fictional female characters I love: Lenneth Valkyrie, Mystina, Elena (of the Turks), Rinoa Heartilly, Rikku, Tomoe Yukishiro, Citrine.
Most pairings are okay with me. Gen, het, slash, incest, fluff or lemon - it doesn't really matter as long as the fic keeps both characters IC. Of course, I find some couples more interesting than the rest. :) I'm crazy for Sephiroth/Aeris, Squall/Rinoa, Kuja/Beatrix, Balthier/Fran, Lenneth/every single VP character, females included, Albel/Nel, Kenshin/everyone, and it means even Shishio (...though I prefer Kenshin/Tomoe, thank you very much :P), Edward/Alphonse/Winry, Jr./Albedo/Gaignun, Hei/Misaki. Phew, I could go on forever.
There are only a few pairings I absolutely detest, and the list of those starts with Roy/Ed. It's OOC, waaaay against canon and it contains a sick amount of pedophilia, no matter how you look at it. I may be a bit oversensitive on this subject, but the mere existence of Roy/Ed fics, especially poorly written ones, makes my blood boil. Same goes for all those cliched Aurikkus. And I'm not too fond of Jr./MOMO, either, because I view the little guy as an almost thirty-year-old man who could never love a twelve-year-old girl that way. Bite me. :)
Mary Sues usually make my day. I either laugh my head off, or (when a MS fic irritates me so much that it's no longer funny) run the guilty teenage authoress to the ground with a long, unpleasant review. Such a nice way to relieve stress. I never submit unsigned flames, though, for I strongly believe in the power of constructive criticism. It applies to my own works as well.
Last but not least, I happen to LOVE stories that revolve around difficult (or just plain sweet) parent-child and/or mentor-apprentice relationships. I squeal in delight every time I see a fic about Hiko-Kenshin, Woltar-Albel, Izumi/Hohenheim-Ed, Garland-Kuja, Laguna-Squall, Hojo-Sephiroth, Yuriev-his U.R.T.V.s, Dumbledore-Snape, etc, etc. I guess I just can't get enough of angst/fluff in my life.
That's everything for tonight, folks. Many thanks for visiting this page. Now please, have a look at some of my fics... or better yet, at my favorite stories. :)
