age: no one should care but the answer is old enough to drink.
What I'm doing here: I'm a reader, I love to read
but am generally too lazy to write and proof read my writing enough to make a good story.
I have this profile so I can review and support people's stories.
Alright I'll be honest I love this site very much, I've been on it forever. While I've read at least 1k stories, I gotta face that unless I want to steal others Ideas and continue them (I'm looking at you Traingham and your story "By Your Enrapture") then I gotta admit to myself I'll never create a story. And as much as I want to post challenges for people I don't think thats allowed except on here where no one reads. (Tower of God people, read it, love it, Fanfic it!)
Books on a Grandscale I need to remember: The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo, The Redwolf Conspiracy, The Secrets of The Immortal Nicholas Flammel series, The Doomsday Key, The Newsflesh Trilogy Book 1 Feed and its series by Mira grant, Incarceron and its sequel (though I feel it ended on a sour note., The Troupe, Books by Benedict Jacka, etc for now
Pet Peeves of fanfiction: When doing crossovers, if you include the two main characters of the two series
do not have one steal all the glory of the other main character. If you're gonna do that get rid of the one main character completely because some people might like both the characters and find it highly annoying.
Ruby Rose and the Paragon of Innocence.
This one is from RWBY where I see a lot of authors portray Ruby Rose as this saint character that has no sex drive, is naive and completely innocent Little Girl.
She is 15 for fucks sake. I don't know about you guys or where you live but my friends and I were already sexually active at that age. We all had girlfriends, boyfriends, had puberty and masturbated already. It bugs me to see authors write Ruby as this innocent character and have others claim she isn't viable when the age difference is 2 friggin years. In the show She is innocent only because the show is about fighting and action not romance and honesty if you go hunting the scourge of humanity I doubt you are innocent.
Now all these authors may be prudes or the more likely explanation is that for whatever reason their age cutoff for making a character have any sort of sex drive is 15 while 17 only 2 years difference is completely acceptable. I think the reason is that they(the authors) may be older like mid 20s or up and they just don't want to imagine it without feeling icky. Which is understandable, I completely accept this and feel similar, but outright state this issue you have with it.
Don't cast your feelings into the characterization of the characters just to state your opinion. Every time I see it I think it unrealistic because I knew myself at 15 and 17 and a difference of 2 years like that is nothing. Hell you don't even have to have the character in the story feel this way to explain away not liking Ruby. Just Don't even put it in the first place.
We all have physical attributes that we like, and considering Jaune likes Flat Chested Snow White there isn't a logical Canon reason he wouldn't like Flat Chested slightly younger Red Riding Hood when she obviously was mature enough to get into Beacon. You think Ozpin would let her in if she truly had the mentality that the authors portray her with? The reason Jaune doesn't think of her like that is the Best Friend issue that makes her a non viable candidate in his mind. It is this same reason it took Pyrrha kissing him to look her way.
I think I'd be more okay with this pet peeve if these same people wouldn't have the other characters exploring their sexuality in the same sentences that they portray Ruby as so innocent as to not have hit puberty yet.
Basically don't write it as the characters feelings when it most likely your own and don't include the section in there. Just leave it out and it still implies the message you want. Do not try to explain it away as Ruby being super innocent when the difference is 2 years, and the ages being 15 and 17. It makes me think the person who wrote the story lives in a monastery and hasn't gotten laid before. I'm not asking for actual Sex, just that people don't put characters on a weird ass pedestal. Besides there is no MA section on here for those scenes technically.
To put it in perspective of something besides age. It would be like a Softmore in High school dating a Senior in High school which is actually quite normal because of the age maturity rule for guys and girls where girls mature faster than boys (supposedly) and date older guys while leading to guys dating same age or younger. Hell I knew freshman that dated Seniors which irritated me to hell as a freshman myself at the time. This is why I can't get behind many of the explanations people seem to rattle off. But to each our own opinion. Not to mention I'll get over this pet peeve soon enough.
Naruto is not the end all be all character Rant!
Alright I'll be honest here I watched Naruto Shippuden the Blood Prison, and its official I don't like Naruto near as much as other anime main characters.
He comes back from incarceration and gets a standing applause. Now I could see accepting the praise, but he stands on a table cheering like an idiot.
Why do people love Naruto so much that they replace every other main character for him?
I have to search through a hundred stories (a bit of an exaggeration but still probably at least fifty) to find one where he doesn't replace the main character in crossovers.
He aint that great people! You could easily turn Tsukune or Issei or Minato Sahashi into a hard ass like you portray Naruto while making the other characters look like idiots.
You know what I think it is, you are all envious of blue eyed Blond people. Now I like Naruto stories, but when I'm trying to find a crossover to read, when the ratio is 50:2, Fifty for Naruto stories and two for other series, it pisses me off.
Pet Peeves of Anime: Main characters that are naive and self righteous. Just something about someone actually voicing that obvious truth about the strong protecting the weak ideal. For some reason when characters actually voice those types of ideals in a serious manner, it makes me flinch. I'm probably just really jaded though so please ignore me on this part.
Random Disappointing Fact of Life: I'm actually reaching that point where I don't enjoy fanfiction as much. My recent craze for RWBY fanfiction showed me that I don't enjoy the fandoms I liked in the past as much and I tolerate less, world, flow, and immersion breaking mistakes in stories as I used to. An example for RWBY is calling Beacon a highschool or getting rid of the Grimm altogether. First because Most people are out of high school by 18 at max and the second because it is what makes RWBY, RWBY at all. I've also found that as much as we might try to deny it. Our real lives do affect how we write and view stories.
Awesome fanfiction one liners I've Read
"The weak despairs over the lives they cannot live," "The strong mourns for it and moves on, which one are you Nephilim?"
From A Demon Among Devils by The Crimson Lord Ironically written by him and read by me during one of the greatest screwups and hardest times of my life yet. Thank you Crimson.
"This,"(motions between him and the other person)"This right here is the reason I hesitated so long."
"He's not going to eat me or assume my life is he? Harry! Why did your eyes widen and our brotherhood charm twitch? Harry, get back here. Harry!" its not really a oneliner but I had to add it because I kept laughing my ass off the when I read it again. The fic its from is A Black Comedy by author Nonjon.
As the flaxen-haired youth settled into the small clearing where he'd been instructed to study Lady Luck rolled her fickle dice. Studying the result, the Lady smiled…and blessed her favorite son once more. Perhaps the most poetic line referring to luck I've read (at least on fanfiction.net) from Naruto The Black Blade by Tigee86
"SHAR'S TEAT BITCH, STOP SCREAMING!" again from Black Blade by Tigee86
"The hell kind of pactio is this! What did you do, lay her to get this?" from Young_Negi_An_Applied_Approach by Finalage
"You call yourself a demon, but you're nothing but an imp drunk off the smell of blood. I am Naruto Uzumaki, future god of this inferior and broken world, and by the power that I am, I command you…" from Nin Tech by Irritus185
"Dating is like pulling off a successful heist. It's fun, it's thrilling, and you seem to have gained a lot from nothing. But marriage is like getting arrested after that crime. You lose your rights, your liberty, and when the adrenaline finally wears off, you realize how dreary your life has become, doing mundane chores and eating the same three square meals every day. It's a stable but banal existence that will suck the life out of you." from La Tormenta by Jiraiya's Dream
"books are nice, they can't lie to you. They can only be uninformed" from Consequences of an Honest Enemy by Bleedndreamz
A favorite qoute I found when watching Suisei No Gargantia "To abandon thought and decision making is to deviate and cease to be human" God I love Chamber right now!
"I think I just saw some of this place's character drag off some of it's dignity into the bushes there," Hayate deadpanned, pointing. From Shitsuji to Vampire by Prodigal Priest
"Abandon your fear. Look forward. Move forward and never stop. You'll age if you pull back. You'll die if you hesitate." Bleach chapter 66
A 2D girl in a 2d show? In my 2d screen? In the 3d world?
ShadowTomb at LivingNightcore Careful, you'll rip the 4th wall open with that line of thinking.
"Born too late to explore Earth
Born too early to explore space.
Born just in time to be rick rolled in a Mario game.
What a time to be alive" by Level Six Shift
Proof you need to take a break " I went too deep, and now there are people coming for my head!"
Note: Ceased adding favorites when FF no longer allowed me to copy the stories. Like I'd ever steal some the master pieces and gems on this site. Regardless flicking from tabs back and forth to get the exact wording for quotes was too much for my usually lazy ass.

Favorite Anime and episodes
0. Tower of God - Absolutely amazing story and world. If this EVER became an anime, it would soar to heights Naruto never could. It would become number One in the span of 24 episodes and continue another 300 more.
1. Code Geass-
Because Lelouch is a BAMF. Actually quite a few of the characters are, but not only was the plot and ending done so well, Lelouch while getting depressed, goes insane and does something about it. He is smart and the anime still managed to give a lot of humorous situations. The characters while being idealistic at times, still manage to show some IQ and backbone, which leads me to the point about Suzaku, I may not have liked everything he believed in but he managed to stick to it while at the same time showing enough backbone to do what must be done in dire situations.
2. Highschool DxD even if Issei is once again a total idiot with only weak perversion and courage to redeem himself.
3. To Aru matsu no Index/ Railgun Touma and Mikoto are great characters
4. Accel World- wish there were more stories for this though
5. Overlord- best version of a guy trapped in a game yet.
6. No Game No Life. Humorous and Vibrant.
7. Black Cat classic now that needs another season
8. Death Note while not that great for fanfiction was one of the best done anime I've seen.
9. Deadman Wonderland crazy people with blood powers
10. To Luv Ru Darkness- this season actually has an interesting plot line under the massive fanservice so far,
12. Hunter x Hunter- actually really good anime and the new 2011 is even better. Unfortunately no prominent girl/women characters which leads to almost solely yaoi on ff.net
13. Others include Inukami, Guilty Crown (though Shu is a pissant at first) Higurashi Koro ni Kai , and Heroic Age for now.
14. Nanatsu no taizai : Fantastic anime with its only problem being a common issue with anime that you'll understand after watching it. But if you need an incentive to watch it would be : a series of all OP characters rearranging the landscape. Think DBZ but with better personalities and better pacing.
15. Sword Art Online (SAO) lone badass swordsmen 'nough said (though kinda emo at times but I think he had proper excuses) Addendum: I did not like nor do I accept SAO 2 as part of SAO. I reject this reality and substitute my own! Sinon should have been the GGO kirito and been his equal, not an Fing damsel in distress.
Seriously she pulls off some unnatural shit in episode two and then those skills just disappear? Not to mention she should have been BETTER than Kirito because he shouldn't have be able to have a sword! At best a knife and he still should have gotten killed soo many times. Addendum maybe its the years apart from watching it but the show actually annoys me now, since Kirito's harem is so fucking bland and forced. The harem should have disbanded when Kirito ignored the others and chose Asuna. I felt it actually demeaned the other characters that they didn't move on and try to date other people and stilled pined for Kirito when Asuna and him were lovey dovey not 20 yards away from them. Fuck any crush like that. Move the hell on. Harems only work if the MC hasn't chosen anyone or everyone accepts an open relationship orgy kind of deal where there is not a favored girl/guy. Relationship probably isn't as deep but I'd rather they be fuck buddies than making me not like them by seeming to not move on. So yeah SAO 2 really ruined my love for the series.
Favorite Pairings or maybe just like rare pairings in general and dislike canon pairings due to such a severe overuse they are all a person can find without searching through dozens of stories. Not to mention I'm a fan of girls with a moderate personality, as her not being a door mat and not abusive. I like fighting and roughing housing as much as the next person but I do not condone hitting your friends for no reason. In this aspect I highly dislike characters like Orihime, Sakura, or Hinata. this isn't to say I don't like girls with extreme personalities like Yoruichi or Nami but honestly its circumstantial. In inverse there is even more I dislike about certain main characters, whether it be extreme naivete or self righteousness.
Preferably heterosexual pairings, MaleFemale(s)
I generally don't like watching or reading a yuri or yaoi pairing. I don't mind if they are there but I'm just not interested in them. I really dislike people not revealing the characters are gay or lesbian though. I spend 30 chapters only to get surprise yuri or yaoi. No thanks. I won't flame the stories though because they have just as much right to exist as harems and heterosexual pairings so i'd appreciate if people would extend that same courtesy to stories more often.
And really before people find this and bitch me out in a pm about liking harems I'll just say Ouran High school Host Club. Really in this day and age if you cant find your sexual preference you really aren't looking hard enough. And if you feel your preference doesn't have enough stories or shows out there, well go make them. But also label them properly, because its a courtesy more than anything else.
I'm writing this after reading a few chapters of a bleach Fairy Tail crossover that someone said was on the level of a legit(original content) published author. There was a bit more to why I decided to try reading the story; involving one author I follow quitting because this so called superior legit author was quitting fanfiction writing first so I checked it out. Immediately we get Fullbring after defeating Ginjo Ichigo, entering the Fairy Tail world right at it's beginning in Hargeon town. The guy fucked up already in my opinion. Ichigo is one of those characters that will involve himself in every conflict already without being ooc about it. So of course Ichigo gets the girls and Dues Ex Machina's every enemy because he is at his end game level at the beginning of the the game and not even new game plus style where enemies were vamped up to match.
This is Not a good example of an overpowered character and I don't even care how good of a writer the guy was. He lost me very quickly. Characters like Gilgamesh from Fate/Zero, Izayoi Sakamaki and Shiroyasha from Mondaiji Tachi, Saitama from One Punch Man, and All Might from Boku No Hero Academia. These are all examples of well written OP characters in my opinion. Why?
Because of their personality. An OP character is not there to solve every problem or fix every mistake you think a character in a manga/anime make. They have to be nonchalant, laid back and let those weaker in terms of power take the spotlight occasionally in the story otherwise it gets boring so fast you wasted everybody's time. Their personalities are also what supplements their roles in stories. They have to be arrogant yet kind or evil, narcissistic or hedonistic, funny and wise. Having the OP character take all the spotlight gets rid of the conflict in the story and YOU CANNOT HAVE A STORY WITHOUT CONFLICT! It is a written down rule to making a story, and I feel like people forget it.
However most of what I said is my opinion, except the rule of writing that I mentioned at the end of my rant. If you bothered Reading this, thank you for your time and have a good day.
Top five Fanfiction story List
1) A Black Comedy by author Nonjon : A Harry Potter story that is both downright hilarious at times and complete.
2) Naruto Genkyouien by Daneel Rush : A Naruto fanfiction that is possibly even funnier than the one mentioned above that had me rolling and my family and friends questioning my sanity from laughing too long and loud. It is also complete which adds to it's appeal.
3) Fang Vice Addiction by Traingham : A Negima fanfiction about Negi getting turned by Eva exploring a really intriguing world of vampires from Eva's past. It is complete but sadly its sequel is not nor will it likely ever be.
