Author has written 13 stories for Digimon, Sailor Moon, Mummy, Harry Potter, Angel, and Hunger Games.
1917 - 2007: My maternal grandmother is the biggest influence on my life. She passed away in 2007 and life hasn't been the same.
2016 - I lost my Dad suddenly. The man who loved me unconditionally and did everything he could to give me a wonderful life.
Updated JANUARY 3rd 2017:
I lost my Dad a few months ago. It was sudden and it was a nightmare. I have struggled to find joy in hobbies I once I had before, from reading to of course writing. I do hope to finish HP and WOL in 2017, but it may take me sometime.

Where have you been all this time?
This is a fair question! I wrote the majority of HP and the WOL in 2002-2003. OoTP caused me to lose a bit of my faith in the series, and that on top of later starting university and having my grandmother not well, resulted in a complete fall out with fandom and writing. During 2004-2010 I did a little bit of writing, mostly Draco/Parvati shorts. As well, I was the plot writer for a writing game known as Veritas on GJ and I illustrated a popular Potter comic strip the Potterites which I drew for about three months.
In the summer of 2010, I traveled to England as I always do, and my niece (six years younger) and my veritable elder sister both read HP and the WOL (The first time I had shown my writing to people I knew in real life) and fell in love with it. Going through the story again with them made me also remember the great plans I had for it. Then, becoming a fan of the Very Potter musicals helped me rediscover my need to Get back to Hogwarts!
So, tell us about yourself!
So who am I? Well I'm Usako3000 D.D.S (Doctor of Dental Surgery) (Just graduated!) as well as having a B.Sc. In Microbiology! Fun things I've been a part of: As a teenager I hair modelled for magazine shoots for a Canada/Japan branched hair salon. I've been heavily involved in theatre and art all through my life, and have been part of a small production company, having written and acted in a variety of shorts. Some are available on youtube, but due to privacy reasons I shall not choose to link toward them.
I was born in Canada, spent the majority of my childhood in England and am now in Canada again. My family lived in England before I was born and most of them continue to live there. I consider myself a sort of British/Canadian hybrid, as although I love Canada, events in Britain have been the major influence on my life. I continue to visit England every year and would love to consider moving back one day.
What about your Fanfiction History?
I’ve been a long time fanfiction writer since 1997 when I was a dreamy preteen. My first fanfics were Sailor Moon based and were posted at A Sailor Moon Romance, including the highly popular (One of the very first “Runaway” fics as they’re horrible characterized and copied now) And Throw Away the Key. In 1999 I wrote some embarrassing Digimon Adventure fics. Most of them have been taken down but I kept a few on here for the sake of posterity. I wrote one BTVS story in 1998 which is probably floating somewhere on the internet, and then my own ending to Angel: Tomorrow is Another Day. The most major addition to my fanfic portfolio would be Harry Potter. On my trip to England in 2001 I was forced to read the first book (and complied because her writing style is similar to my favorite author in childhood: Enid Blyton) - and loved it! The newest addition is The Hunger Games, a series I was very happy to get into in 2012.
I am taking up fanfiction again in part to get back into writing. I have an idea for a novel which I always planned to write, but have never had the chance to due to wanting to get that Dr. in front of my name first! Now that I've accomplished that, it's time to start enjoying another one of passions: writing!
Let's Talk Characters and OTP's:
In Sailor Moon, my favourite character will always be Usagi. While the anime leaves a lot to be desired, the base story is beautiful. I really enjoyed PGSM, and hope the new anime will be more mature and along those lines. I support Usagi/Mamoru only. Chibi-Usa is my most despised character in fandom history. She will not feature in my stories and if she does, she will not be the canon interpretation.
In BtVS, Buffy and Angel are endgame for me. I really loved Darla and Angel together as well, but that is as far as I go. Buffy was ruined for me by Season Five and the introduction of Dawn Summers who I loathe. I still cannot understand why she was written into the story, and if she had to be, why she was written so obnoxiously.
In The Hunger Games, I am 100% a Peeta/Katniss shipper. However, I find Cato an interesting character and in my own story have tried my hand at Cato/Katniss.
Now, Harry Potter. I love, love, love Harry. He is the be all and end all of the series for me. I will never betray Harry. I am also a #1 Sirius Black fangirl. Other characters I support are James and Lily Potter, Remus Lupin and Parvati Patil. I love Parvati and was sad to not see her become a larger part in the books. Draco Malfoy is one of my favourites as well, but moreso what he COULD have been instead of what he eventually became in canon. I support: Harry/Parvati, Hermione/Ron, Draco/Parvati, Lily/James. For a little while I also once supported Hermione/Snape in a humor/romance context.
For those looking to find my fanfictions where those couples exist:
Harry/Parvati: Is the side couple in The Morning After
Draco/Parvati: Features prominently in Harry Potter and the Wish of Life
Hermione/Snape: Is the main couple in The Morning After
Cato/Katniss (minor Peeta/Katniss): Is the main couple in The Darkness Within
Harry Potter and the Wish of Life
This story will be completed this year (2017).
Yes, I finally came back to HP and the the WOL. The inspiration has not stopped and right now I have the entire story outlined with skeleton chapters written for almost the entire remnant of the tale.
The Darkness Within
Three Wizard Tots and a Potions Master
HIATUS - Likely to continue at some point.
The Morning After
