Author has written 2 stories for Skip Beat!, and Naruto.
I am no longer into writing fan-fictions for the still-wonderful Skip Beat!, which is why I do not reply to reviews on New Clothes and the Emperor (I just don't have anything to say about it any more.)
My current interest when it comes to fan-fiction is Naruto. However, I don't plan to write anything more for Naruto until it's over, and then I can write something epic without worrying about canon screwing it up. (Sasuke, how can you be so consistent and yet so hard to pin down?) So, once it's over...we'll see. Maybe I'll come back.
As for now...I'm not really here.
If you're just poking around here because you're bored and need something to read, here are my favourite mangas/manwhas/webtoons...if you haven't tried them yet, maybe you should, because you might love them as much as I do, and that would be great :)
Noblesse (Amazing story, really wonderful friendships, for once...I care so much about the characters, I actually worry about them like they're real, sometimes. Okay, regularly. Please don't die, Rai. You're not even my favourite, but the boys will cry, the kids will cry, and we'd better not even mention Frankenstein. I don't want to see the mess that would be left behind if you get all used up! Besides, you still need to learn how to open that banana!)
Kubera (Enchantingly graceless, how can I resist the oxymoron of it? And where, oh where, is it going? I want to know! I still don't know how I fell for something so clunky, but I ended up loving it. I want to pinch Yuta's cheeks, btw, can someone let me do that?)
Saiunkoku Monogatari (Most beautiful art ever. Every character has so much personality, you really fall for them. Seiran, our evil flower...just what did you DO while you were Little Whirlwind, anyway? Will I ever know?)
Trinity Blood (Oh, oh, oh. Oh, this story. I don't even know what to say. Desolate hopefulness and frail strength; I seem to love the impossible stories, don't I? And the art is glorious, too.)
The Earl and the Fairy (Again, very pretty airy, delicate art, complex story, interesting relationships, nice European setting.)
The Embalmer (Yeah, the main male is actually an embalmer. He surgically and otherwise prepares corpses so that they look nice for the loved ones they've left behind to say goodbye to without unnecessary trauma. Emotionally fairly deep.)
Cesare and Cantarella (Put together here because they are both stories based on Cesare Borgia. Both very interesting, though in very different styles. Honestly, fascinating and dramatic. Cesare feels more 'real' with a realistic art style and more historical fact, and Cantarella is more 'fantasy' with a wilder story and a pretty shoujo art style, but they're both engrossing.)
Koi Dano Ai Dano (Extremely entertaining. Funny. The heroine is great. Not very nice, yet incredibly understanding of human nature, which she uses as a weapon. Oblivious romantically, of course, but in a very fun way, not an annoying one. The main potential romance has a strong sense of friendship to it. I love that.)
Horimiya (So charmingly understated. Cannot resist those non-confrontational tattoos and piercings, either. This story makes me smile and feel calm and optimistic.)
Akatsuki no Yona (Revenge of the reverse harem, I tell you! Take part, ladies! And shockingly, the heroine doesn't annoy me at all...)
Youko X Boku (Inu X Boku) (Should I cry? Will it end up happy? Can the past be remade without ruining the flavour? Most importantly...is he a S or an M? I don't care what they say, I swear he's BOTH...)
Psychic Detective YAKUMO (Shinrei Tantei YAKUMO) (Interesting mysteries and the lovely understated romance that I seem so drawn to. It can be a little gruesome, yet this story, too, somehow leaves me feeling very calm.)
Kuragehime/Jellyfish Princess (Very funny, interesting art style...can't tell if it's shoujo or shonen in art style, kind of in between...and I really like the characters and the somewhat unusual story about a bunch of female otakus and a super stylish but still manly cross-dresser...and a bunch of politicians and business sharks.)
City of Dead Sorcerer is very interesting, too, even though it grosses me out. The Pale Horse is also a little like that: fascinating but disturbing, and the watercolour-esque art is unique. I love the tremendous lack of sentimentality of the heroine of Shinigami Hime no Saikon, she's so refreshing...but I don't know where it's going, yet. I enjoy Reimei no Arcana quite a bit, too, but because I can't figure pinpoint WHY, it has to stay in this secondary pile. 1/2 Prince is funny, cute, and touching on a level that is deep yet frivolous, and it satisfies my weird yen for gender benders, so it's too good for the honorable mention category, but it hasn't got quite the right depth for me to rank it as a favourite. Fisheye Placebo promises to be quite something, but it's still just started, and tbh it freaks me out a little...seems like it might be a gritty story. But the art is really unique and wonderful and it seems like it will be meaningful. Soul Cartel is a great webtoon, too, that I like most of all for its handling of female characters. Shonen fighting stuff usually treats female characters like crap, but in Soul Cartel the ladies hold their own and usually do not get rescued...they take care of themselves, and sometimes everyone else, too. unTOUCHable is a new webtoon, too, but it's got a pretty style, and it's about evolved vampires who don't need blood any more, but rather can absorb energy merely by touching...and then the main character falls for the energy of a germophobe who cannot stand to be touched.
Honorable mentions to Dengeki Daisy, Rasetsu, Cardcaptor Sakura, Rurouni Kenshin, Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji), Fruits Basket, Kamisama Hajimemashita, and Library Wars! too. And I guess I'll include Inuyasha for old-time's sake. Some of them I am lukewarm on but I am compelled to know their endings. Others I really loved, but only way back in their time, so they're all lumped together here.
