I, Sassybratt, do solemnly swear to review all the fics I read, regardless of the number of reviews, its age, or anything else. I have joined the Review Revolution.
Never get tired of doing little things for others. Sometimes those little things occupy the biggest part of their heart.

The name's Sassy.
I am 28 years old and I'm just an average (brunette) girl with an average (busy) life.
I've been writing fanfiction since I was 16 years old and can't see myself stopping anytime soon. So please feel free to send me constructive criticism. I'm not easily offended. I'm an Registered Nurse who works twelve-hour night shifts in the Intensive Care Unit at the hospital - which keeps me plenty busy. I enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening. I'm a mom of two rescued kitties who fill my life with laughter, and love to cuddle when I'm trying to write. I'm pretty easy going, because hey, life is hard enough. Don't stress over what you can't control.
A few of my favorite television shows: Charmed(c), One Tree Hill(c), The Vampire Diaries(c), The Originals, Shameless, Pretty Little Liars(c), Once Upon a Time(c), The Walking Dead, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, The Night Shift, Grey's Anatomy, Supernatural, Criminal Minds, 13 Reasons Why, Designated Survivor, Stranger Things, Riverdale, NCIS, and Chasing Life(c).
Some animes I rather enjoy: Inuyasha, Bleach, Fruits Basket, Case Closed, Toradora, Ouran High School Host Club, Maid Sama, Fairy Tail, Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Snow White with the Red Hair, Yona of the Dawn, Orange, Special A, Vampire Knight, Kiss Him Not Me, ReLife, Death Note, Dragonball series, Sword Art Online, Attack on Titan, The Seven Deadly Sins, and Kamisama Kiss.
I absolutely LOVE to read, but being so busy these days its hard to find the time. My favorite book would have to be The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen. It holds a special place in my heart. Currently reading: The Outsider by Stephen King.
Music is a huge part of my life. I've seen so many bands/singers in concert, that I've lost count. My likes range all over the spectrum, but I'm more of a Country music fan.
I happen to be one of those girls who loves video games. I own almost every system ranging from Super Nintendo to PS4. Although I haven't had the time lately to enjoy it, some of my favorite games include L4D, Assassin's Creed, Uncharted, The Last of Us, Mario, Spyro, CoD, the Sims, Nancy Drew, Resident Evil, Pokemon, and Earthbound.
Writing is my guilty pleasure. I love writing for the IY fandom. It gives me a variety of characters to work with, and a variety of skill levels in how well I can write them. However, I recently discovered the amazing anime of Fairy Tail and have been itching to write something for it, so you may see me branch out of my comfort zone sometime soon. I try to challenge myself because I'm hoping to someday write a book of my own. So please, review, as I love to hear everything my readers have to say.
If you want to know more about me, or just a friend to talk to, feel free to shoot me a PM. I don't bite.
Quote I live by:

Special thanks to my new Inuyasha beta, hinezumi (tumblr) for stepping up and being such a rockstar with editing, and helping me improve my writing skills. You are the bomb dot com! And to Divinion, for holding my hand as I learn how to write for Fairy Tail, and taking time to remind me of all the little details. You are the beta any writer would ask for!
Pieces of Memories: AU: There were no memories of her past, no recollection of her name or where she came from. It had to be some twisted dream, because life without memory is no life at all. Alone and injured, she is taken under someone's care as she struggles to remember who she is. But when dark and violent flashes of her past come back to haunt her, she realizes they are so terrifying, they can bring her to her knees. [writing stage - 3 chapters written]
Learning How to Lose You: AU: There were a few things Sango had learned over the past two years. She had figured out how to function on a precious thirty minutes of sleep, baby giggles were the sweetest sound on earth, and reading bedtime stories always led to adventures. But there was one lesson in her life that she knew she would never really master - learning how to lose him. One-shot sequel to Forever and Always. [writing stage - 30 percent complete]
The Last of Us: When a job goes terribly wrong, the Fairy Tail guild is left to pick up the pieces. Mourning the deaths of their guildmates, Lucy can't seem to find the strength to move forward. But she comes to realize one person understands. His madness was her mercy, and she finally began to hope that maybe he could make her heart beat again. [writing stage - 8 chapters written]
A Sky Full of Stars: Waking up without Inuyasha in a world she never knew existed, Kagome finds herself taken in by fairies as she struggles to figure out what happened to the rest of her friends. With danger lurking in the shadows, she's reminded that stars are simply lights embedded in the night's darkness. And when a star falls, it's only finding its way back home. (Inuyasha x Fairy Tail) [brainstorming stage - 10% complete]

Hello there, my lovely readers! Just letting you known I'm still active! As a reminder, I, along with other moderators, have started Inuyasha Awards for Inuyasha fanart and fanfiction across all platforms! Please see our tumblr (feudalconnection) for more info, or PM me! I've also been working on the next chapters of Tomorrow's Destiny, which is my main focus to work on at this time. I'm currently reviewing the first 2 chapters with my beta to get them ready for the next installments. The following 2 chapters are currently in the editing phase, so please stay tuned for updates in the near future! As for Ripple Effect, no progress has been made on it recently. I want to reiterate that I've decided to give RE a complete overhaul, including a possible title change. I have an idea of where I want to take it, but the current posted chapters don't reflect that, so I'll be revising it. Eventually, it will be taken down and re-posted once I've wrapped up an outline for it. Until I finish that process, this story will remain on hiatus. Sorry to all of it's fans, but I want to do this story right. I'll be letting you know when these changes will occur, so keep an eye out. Porcelain Fists is my back-burner story, so I only work on it when I feel inspired, hence the slower update process. But I recently just posted a new chapter, so check it out! The next chapter of Double Shot of Heaven is about a third of the way done. It's giving me a tad bit of trouble in the dialogue department, so it may be a little while before I can update the next chapter. Fatal Attraction is my latest fic and will only be about ten chapters or so. I haven't been working on it much lately due to wanting to wrap up some of my older fics, so please excuse the absence between updates. A Christmas Story is officially back on hiatus until the holiday season, so look for more chapters being updated around December 1st! Only once TD, FA, and DSOH are complete will I post any new multi-chapter fics. I'm also in the process of writing a new multi-chapter Fairy Tail fic! I want to finish and edit it before posting, so it won't be out for some time, but I'm really excited about it! It's proving to be a challenge writing for new characters, but don't worry my IY fans, I'm still working on those fics, too. I promise. My muse just tends to dabble in whatever it pleases. There's always a chance of various one-shots coming out as well. So please feel free to check back here concerning any updates as I will keep this section as current as possible. And if you're looking for more information, please PM me or keep an eye on my tumblr for more news.
Thank you to everyone who have reviewed/favored/alerted any of my stories or myself over the years. Your love has continued to let me know that you're enjoying my stories. I'm not going to sugar-coat anything or make promises I can't keep. However, even though I may be too busy to write, I will do my best to check my email regularly, but don't be upset if it takes forever for me to reply. Thank you for all the continued support and reviews asking me to update. I love hearing that you enjoy my stories so much. Keeps me coming back :)
Stories to Tumblr: Presently, I am only posting one-shots to tumblr. All of my currently on-going multi-chapter fics were posted before I started actively posting my writing to my tumblr account. The only story that isn't included in this, is Double Shot of Heaven, which was born from a tumblr challenge. Its subsequent chapters will be posted to tumblr once they're completed. To clarify, all of my work will officially always be posted here. Once I begin posting new multi-chapter stories, I may begin posting those to tumblr as well, but they will always be posted here first. In the meantime, I will still continue to post excerpts and links to tumblr when chapters are updated. Thank you to all my tumblr followers who have popped over here to review my stories. It really does mean so, so much!
Reviews: They are so important to writers. How can we improve without them? I personally get discouraged when no one reviews. Favorites and alerts are great, but reviews keep writers going. We know people are viewing our fics, we know our work is being read, but we also know that very few people spare a minute of their time to thank us. Don't ignore your writers. Thank them for their time. Thank them for their imagination. Thank them for putting a piece of their heart on a screen. I now know why so many great authors have disappeared from fanfiction. It only takes 2mins to leave a review. Don't be the reason someone stops writing. Most fic writers get less than 100 reviews on their fics. Most often its WAY less than that. The chances of there being any feedback is pretty much zilch. Views to favorites ratios are minuscule and reviews are rare. We spend months on one story and barely ever get even a "This is great!" Please don't harass your writers. Please don't sweep us under the rug. We work hard. We are important to fandoms. What we do is important. Fanfiction is important. And fanfic authors are important. It just seems as though lately reviews are rare for writers on this site, and it simply breaks my heart. I don't think I'll ever stop writing, because I have tons of ideas I want to dabble with, but still... be kind to those who write fics. They put hours and hours of their time into them. You can spare 2 minutes, can't you?
Fanfiction Requests: (Request status: closed) I will no longer be taking any requests for writing fanfiction related to others' ideas. This is due in part because of my already enormous list of projects I myself am either working on or wanting to start, and also because I simply no longer have a desire to do so. As I work through this year and the process of reclaiming my mental health, I've been learning to say no, and understanding why I'm saying it. I do appreciate those who have reached out to me in the past (and those who I've already committed to, I plan to uphold that promise), as asking an author to tell a story is one of the highest compliments you can give. Unfortunately, I simply don't have the time or energy to devote to this any longer.
Beta Requests: (Request status: open) I am more than happy to accept any and all beta/editor requests related to categories I have already written for. Although my time may be limited every now and then, I can usually edit something fairly quickly. Just shoot me a PM and I will be happy to oblige, as well as give you a time limit as to when I can have it done by. Thank you so much for your consideration! I love helping anyone I can improve their writing skills, so please, don't be shy. I'm here to help!
Fics I'm currently beta-ing for: Koko wo Shinogu by Acqua Sole [wonderful story weaving and beautiful verbiage; check it out under my favorites!]
To all those guest reviewers who have been reading my older stuff, I just wanted to say thank you! I am unable to reply to your reviews here, but I do reply to them on my tumblr account if you happen to drop by. Everything will be tagged under "guest reviewers". I just want to show that I appreciate and love each and every one of your reviews. I'm so glad that you are still enjoying some of my older pieces, and I squeal like a little school girl every time I see a new review has popped up. I appreciate it more than you know!
Small note about any sequels to my currently completed stories: Although I've written a couple of spin-offs to finished works, beside the ones listed below, the remainder of my stories will stay complete the way they are. Thank you, though, for enjoying my work so much as to want the story to be continued. It is very much appreciated.
