Author has written 4 stories for Naruto, and D.Gray-Man.
Children are peculiar creatures in their innocence. They have innate curiosity, but it is not greed, not yet. There must be a sort of unspoilt bliss in that… In a way, they are superior to adults with their troubles, jobs, money and stressful lives, tainted minds and all.
They are the untainted ones, ourselves in our most primitive state. Our state closest to “Godliness”, if it can be put in those terms. And if only we could lose ourselves… if only we could revert back to that state, and wash ourselves entirely clean of “sin”, if you want to call it that (assuming, of course, that we are not born in sin, and that in nature we are good). Just as Rousseau suggested during the Enlightenment, “We should return to nature.”
Of course, not every child is in this way of brightness. Some are ruined at an early age and forced to grow up a little too fast, or maybe they were born, somehow, without that curiosity and pureness. They are delicate. When a child is forced to not be a child, crucial stages of development are hurried through or skipped entirely. It is not healthy. They become peculiar… with a sort of mental instability. Odd tendencies. Nightmares. A relenting dissatisfaction. All signs of the subconscious trying to communicate that something is wrong, and that glazing over it won’t make things better. It can progress to the point of insanity, though the word has become overused. When one is truly insane they do not know it; it is being on the verge of losing yourself that is the most frightening…
More and more these days, I think that it is the average child, the one allowed to play and grow, and maintain its innocence for as long as possible, not naiveté but innocence… it is that child that is the perfect one.
As it is said, ‘maxima debetur puero reverntia’.
The greatest respect is owed to a child.
12/28/08: Hey. I was going through my favorites and thought, Hey, there's a lot of Naruto here. Why is that? I barely even bother with Naruto anymore. So, I'm updating it. With more Death Note, more D. Gray-Man, and possibly some Yu-Gi-Oh. Yes, Yu-Gi-Oh. I used to watch it ALL. THE TIME. I swear, I was a little Duelist wannabe. I still have over half of my cards. Which is quite a few. All the stupid ones, of course, but whatever. Anyway... I think I'll update my profile a bit. Andyeah.
2/21/09: Since I'm a lazy little bitch, I'm just gonna copy and paste a DA meme here (maybe a few...) and call that my "about me". Get it? Got it? Good.
6/9//09: ...Oh dear lord, I just realized what day it was when I typed this. Anyway, I'm kind of dead, but I totally plan to change that! And, uh, everyone go read Ryuujitsu's "Faust," it's really good. And stuff. Uh, yeah. And I decided the meme was lame, so I deleted it. :
