Author has written 11 stories for Tales of Symphonia, Final Fantasy VII, One Piece, and Harry Potter.
Name: Ayumi U. K.
Languages: Portuguese and... English? British school plus American movies, books and fics = very... er, international English. Oh, and sometimes, I'll just speak random Japanese words because... hm, Ayumi is my RL name, so it should be kind of obvious why. So I'm not a weaboo or whatever derogatory term they use to call Japan fanatics these days.
Really, the Ocident has been fascinated with the Orient (and vice versa) for a long time. Puccini's opera Madame Butterfly (and the book it was based on); Van Gogh's Japonaiserie... there was a movement called Japonism. And no, that did not mean people wanted to learn everything about the country. They picked only the parts they liked and kept many misconceptions, just like Japan fans do today. Is it wrong? Who knows.
...I really say [insert name]-san/chan/kun/sama--some words simply don't have a proper translation. And then I spout some uchinaguchi in the middle because mother's family comes from Okinawa. When we aren't butchering Spanish for the heck of it...
Apparently, I'm bipolar. I also have OCD. Damn, that explains so much.
I don't cross-post everything, especially because FFN's rules don't allow certain kinds of fic. So, check it out if you have time.
I've recently been converted to Natsume Yuujin Chou and KHR. Damn. Also, the BH6 is evil and I love it. A OPxBH6 crossover may happen sometime soon... at AO3, because FFN doesn't allow scriptfic, and it would be a side-project.
(I'll Condemn) the world for your sake: I already have planned until the 3d2y timeline... the turning points, at least. I decided on the fic's ending before I even sat to write the prologue. What does change is how things will progress to that point... also, I wanted to wait until Dressrosa is over to continue writing, since I don't want to break the OP world's rules, only do world building. The only things that may contradict canon are events after Ann's birth, or things that could have happened in the background.
This SI AU is getting ridiculously complex. It was supposed to be a somewhat gory dark comedy crackfic. Instead, it's heading towards novel size non-crack (as non-crack as OP gets, at any rate)... help.
I'm working on a third person world building companion piece, as well as the final chapter of the Childhood Arc. Had to reread the entire manga, and I'll watch the 'canon' fillers, that is, the ones that Oda-sensei helped make.
Shinra's (One-winged) Angels: I know what I want to do, and some parts are already typed (and saved in a pendrive, my PC and an external HD, as well as the cloud), but chapter 5 simply doesn't want to be written. Hopefully, playing the Compilation will help. And the novels. And the OVAs. And the--short attention span is short. orz
All Tales of Symphonia stories are on indefinite hiatus (should have said that years ago orz). edit: mostly. Sister may be resurrected (to Mithos' happiness).
