Author has written 50 stories for Prince of Tennis, Code Geass, and Gintama.
“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.”

My name is Alicia and I like writing for Gintama. I used to write for Code Geass and Prince of Tennis but sadly do not have any interest in any of those former fandoms anymore; at the moment please just consider those stories discontinued or on hiatus
Gintoki/Tsukuyo, obviously, is my OTP and I am one thousand percent sure that they'll get married someday. But I also like shipping Tsukuyo with Hijikata or Takasugi too in certain contexts.
Tsukuyo is my muse. I have never held such affection for a fictional character before I saw her. She encapsulates strength, beauty, dignity, and grace - and therefore she is the character I'm most comfortable writing with. I love her background and her compassion and her personality.
I write a lot for Gintama because I feel like there's an audience out there who wants to read what I'm interested myself in reading.
My favorite subjects to write about is love, redemption, and discovery.
If all I see is "Update soon" on a review, it pretty much guarantees I will not update a story soon.
