Author has written 8 stories for Tales of Symphonia, Persona Series, Strawberry Panic!, Tales of Vesperia, and Code Geass.

Hello, I am General Ampersand(&). I am a male at the age of 16. I am very much into Japan's culture and love just about anything to do with it. I love anime and manga and i am a savvy gamer (specializing in RPGs). Other than that, there isnt really anything important about me so i will list a few things that i like including multiple pairings and etc. (every now and then i might talk about recent anime/manga i have seen or read) And if you happen to see the name GENAMP in anything online, there's a great chance that that's me, especially if its on Xfire or any online game. Look me up if you want to.

Also recently i finished DeathNote and saw the final episode. Its very well done and i like the emotion put into it but i was quite frustriated how Near could outsmart and end up killing Light. (Ryuk killed him, i know but still.)

The same goes for Stopani. I cant believe that Shizuma would interrupt the entire thing for her own selfish reasons. And Tamao just gives up. She should have actually kept Nagisa and not have pushed her towards Shizuma. That made me so mad.

The end of Fate/stay night was so sad, in my opinion. I just couldn't believe that Saber went back to her own time, just so she could die. And then passes it off as a wonderful dream. Argggg.

Finished Trinity Blood and started on Negima and Kiddy Grade. Both great series and i might have a brand new OTP. Yeah, Negima is that good.

Lately, i noticed the inclusion of the Persona Series area for stories. This being the case, i have moved Revelations to that area and will probably move Resume sooner or later, depending on certain things. Just to clairify...

Also, ToS Closer to the Heart is one hiatus as of now. I'm sorry, but i want to focus on a few other areas first. If you have a problem with this, IM me or whatever and i will try to get another chapter, if you really would care for it that much. Anyway, thanks. Also, I have a few new stories ideas but would really appreaciate if you would VOTE on the best idea right now, even if you don't know what i'm talking about... Thank you!!


Fun things i enjoy: Singing (i know its odd for a guy but i love to sing), drawing (i am not half bad either), gaming, socializing with compatriots, the internet, anime and manga, paintballing, Rock Band w/Friends.

Favorite Games: Tales of Symphonia (cant wait for the sequel althought Lloyd is a bad guy and all that jazz), Persona 3: FES, GTA SA, FF 8 (Personally the best because of the characters and plot. Squall for the win), FF 6 (another one that tops the rest), Harvest Moon: AWL, Deux Ex, Resident Evil (the series as a whole), Skies of Arcadia, KOTOR, the Sims, Earthbound, Chrono Trigger, Saints Row, Half-Life, Devil May Cry. Just recently got Persona 4, am in love with the game. Probably my favorite game of all time. It barely wedges out HL and P3 and ToS.

Favorite Shows: Attack of the Show, X-Play, Family Guy, King of the Hill, ATHF, Jeopardy (personal nerd fav)

Favorite Anime/Manga: Strawberry Panic (this is great and i fully recommend it to anyone unless you hate yuri), Bleach, Maria Sama ga Mite, Code Geass, The Last Uniform, Love Hina, Fruits Basket, Trigun, The Third: Girl with the Blue eye, Noein, Karas, anything by Satoshi Kon and Hayao Miyazaki, also Welcome to the N.H.K is pretty good too. Deathnote (i hate the ending soo much), Yu Yu Hakusho, Naruto (manga moreso), Black Lagoon, Fate/stay night, Gurren Lagann, Speed Grapher, Now I'm into Simoun and Madlax, along with My-Hime and Trinity Blood. Bee Train make pretty good stuff. (Noir is also good.), anything Negima, Kiddy Grade, xxxHolic, Gundam, Strain, Baccano, Red Garden... I could go on. To clairify, NEGIMA is my favorite anime in the world right now, even beating out Code Geass, if only by a little bit. I could not find anything to hate in this series and the characters are just too lovable; I'm also a sucker for the whole school setting and harem/girl's school/comedy thing, especially if done well.

Favorite Pairs: Nanto Yaya and Okuwaka Tsubomi (screw you Hikari), Leon Kennedy and Ada Wong, Vyse and Fina, Gordon Freeman and Alyx Vance, Honoka and Iks, Haruka and Yuu, Yukari and Minato (P3) Lloyd Irving and Sheena Fujibayashi, Aoi Nagisa and Suzumi Tamao (I like Shizuma but she ruined so many things) Allen and Shion (xenosaga), Hinata and Naruto, Yoko and Kamina, Paraiette and Kaim (Simoun OTP) and Main Character (P4) and Chie Satonaka, Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine, Asuna and Negi, Nodoka and Negi, Konoka and Setsuna,

Favorite Characters: Nanto Yaya, Lloyd Irving, Sheena Fujibayashi, Kratos Aurion, Leon Kennedy, Lelouch Lamperonge (badass), Gordon Freeman, Okuwaka Tsubomi, J.C. Denton, Ichigo Kurosaki, Mima (Perfect Blue), Yuki Sohma, Arisa Uotani, Haruka, Vash "the Stampede", Nicholas D. Wolfwood, Albert Wesker, Main Character (P3 and P4), Yukari Takeba, Light Yagami, KOS-MOS, Kamina, Yoko, Hinato Hyuga, Y, Paraiette ?, Chie Satonaka, Madlax, Vanessa Rene, Kallen Stadtfeld, almost all the characters off of My-Hime, Nadoka Miyazaki, Negi Springfield, Asuna i forget her last name,

Least Favorite Characters: Hikari (i just dont like her), Amane Ootori (dislike her too for ruining things), Sato Chad, Gigyas, Paul Denton, Fuuka Yamagishi(?), Sherry Birkin, Near, Mello, + (i dislike a lot of characters)

Favorite Bands: I have decided to include bands i like (deal with it): Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rise Against, System of a Down, Flyleaf, City Sleeps, Chevelle, Soundgarden, Audioslave, (anything with Chris Cornell), Pearl Jam, Live, Nine Inch Nails, Stone Temple Pilots, Shoji Meguro, Nobuo Uematsu. Now, my tastes have changed a little. I love Emo anything so i am listening to Hawthorne Heights, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, 30 seconds to mars, At the drive in, Cobra Starship, The Cab, PatD, Paramore, and a few others. You say high school musical - I say Hawthorne Heights, i found this around youtube and found it very amusing... :o

Thats a little info about me. Nothing special i know. Oh well. Also, I am becoming a betareader, so if you need something, check me out, although I might be on break. :p


I have recently gotten into the game Xenosaga (i know, 8 years late) but i really enjoy the game. I have two other stories planned, one with my first m rating and the other a crossover. I dont know how theyll go but yeah. I might get into xenosaga writing too. anyway, i am just putting ot a psa on my thingy.

Persona 4 also. I could endlessly rave about this game. Be looking out for a maybe story in the future?? Actually, i totally have a plot all set up for this one. And it will be different from my O3 Story (Revelations). Anyway...

I know i haven't been around lately, and for that, i am truly sorry. I've been wrapped up in the some old anime along with a few too many video games. Today, i am specifically addressing the endings of both CG and Madlax, two of my favorites with interesting endings. In CG, Lelouch sacrifices himself to bring about peace, which many consider a redeming quality about him. However after that, there is the cart scene, in which the show subtly hints that his Immortality Geass saved him, leading him to travel around with C.C. This is how i consider the show ends with many other wishing death upon Lu-lu. Oh well. Also, for Madlax, i like how she remained seperate at the end, but why did Vanessa and Elenore have to die? I thought this was unnecessary, especially considering how both with in close relation with the main characters. Especially Vanessa... they called each other friends but you could obviously see that there was much more than that. Oh well, that's just a small rant i wanted to disclose with you, whomever read this.


I've been into poetry lately and decided to try my hand at a few. However, i have a lack of faith in my own skills and until i improve, i doubt i will have the gall to publish anything at all, except for those lucky few who get to grace my profile page. If you chance upon these, feel free to tell me what you think. I know it goes against what i had said up above, but in this case... Thanks.

-Noein-

A fractured Quartz will tell no lies
The evidence is fitting
Time will slowly tick away
Time is unforgiving...

Dust in the Wind-

Would you say we’re dust in the wind?
As the sun rises and falls again,
Could you close your eyes on me with a smile?
All the while, “be gone” you always said.
Lingering, like I’m dust in the wind.

Would you say the world closed it eyes on us?
With a hushed voice, I understand enough,
Falling further as the breeze tussles my hair,
Another memory we’re not allowed to share between us.
Flowing, like I’m dust in the wind.

Could you say you hear the church bells ring?
Walk along the path of eternity,
Take a glance back at infinity,
A voice calls out, but rather it sings.
Fading, gone is the dust in the wind.
