Author has written 7 stories for Naruto, and Puella Magi Madoka Magica/魔法少女まどか★マギカ.
I like grim-dark power fantasies. I am of the belief that any story, any at all, crossed over with Game of Thrones' style is automatically significantly improved.
Grim-dark stories which are also well written and not slow-burners like Shadows of Konoha, Of Sheep and Battle Chicken and Anything worth doing is worth doing badly are single-handedly the reason I love fanfiction.
I also hate that you

My top list by Fandoms I like (compromise between objective and subjective opinion)
Naruto: Shadows of Konoha [uncontested]
Mass Effect: Of Sheep and Battle Chicken [The entire series redefined Mass Effect for me. To me, this is canon now, and the games the silly half-baked fanfiction.]
Bleach: Amenaza [uncontested]
RWBY: The Games We Play [uncontested]
Star Wars: Shinobi of the Old Republic [uncontested]
Familiar of Zero: The Hill of Swords [uncontested]
Fate/Stay Night: A Demon Lord's Hero [I am disappointed I haven't found any truly grimdark F/SN stories yet. Shirou's ultimate failure should be written in stone and his inability to stop seeking his ideals should also be unstoppable. I want to see him break.]
Evangelion: Aeon Entelechy Evangelion [uncontested]
Muv-Luv: Muv Luv: One Last Time into the Loop [Merely Hollywood blockbuster, but great for consuming tons of popcorn nonetheless. Uncontested.]
Worm: El Ahrairah (fanfic is on the spacebattles website. Author is Anderein) [A bit like Shadows of Konoha and Of Sheep and Battle Chicken in that it is simply a significantly improved version of the base material - to the point where this overshadows it like a mountain would an ant.]
DC Universe: DC - Remastered Edition [uncontested, and the darkest pitch-black grimdark story I have ever seen. Holy shit.]
Clandestine Operations: Lost Legacy [uncontested]
Most favourite protagonist: Anything worth doing is worth doing badly [Brutalized its competition.]
My personal Top List
10/10 The Games We Play (Redefined my rating scale, on my old scale this would have felt like a 12/10)
10/10 El Ahrairah (Almost no combat. It doesn't need it. It is that overwhelmingly good. Holy SHIT.)(fanfic is on the spacebattles website. Author is Anderein)
9.5/10 A World Full of Monsters (His other big story is also great but I prefer this one. This would be a 10/10 if it was longer)(On 12.5.2020 author announced that after a 3,5year hiatus he is BACK FOR MORE! All aboard the hypetrain!)
9.5/10 DC - Remastered Edition (This story is setting new milestones as to how ridiculously grimdark a story can be. I am still shaken, days after.)
9/10 XCOM: The Hades Contingency (Starts as a strong 7/10 but quickly ramps up to 9/10, especially with its sequels)
9/10 Anything Worth Doing is Worth Doing Badly (I thought this was going to be a 9/10 after the first few sentences. It didn't disappoint)
9/10 Reload (Basically all of his stories are great, though I prefer this one)
8.5/10 Legacy Undone
8.5/10 Persephone's Waltz (Link might be broken because of fanfiction dot net, this fanfic is on archiveofourown dot org)
8.5/10 Those Who Love Monsters (Gabriel wrote a ton of awesome stories, but i like this one the most)
8.5/10 Shadows of Konoha
8.5/10 Of Sheep and Battle Chicken
8.5/10 The Art of the Deal
8/10 Lost soul
8/10 To the Stars (Unsure. could be anything from 8/10 up to and including 9/10)
8/10 Honor Thy Masters
8/10 Tis Femina
8/10 People Lie
8/10 The Hill of Swords
8/10 Simplicity is Complexity (This author's writing is something special. I also grew up with his fanfics, this is one of the first I ever read)
8/10 Memories of Iron (All of his fanfics are 8/10)(22.8.18 I learned that the author died of a heart attack in his early 50's, 18.9.16. I miss him dearly)
8/10 Hear the Silence
8/10 Walk on the Moon
7.5/10 The Longest Hunt
7/10 XSGCOM: Mirror Image
6/10 Chunin Exam Day (Doesnt really deserve to be on here, but I grew up with his two big stories way back when I first found fanfictions)
Because beneath those bloody skies--
There might be nothing but pain and ice--
Standing before a broken river,
Upon splintered glass.
"Disappear, drown and die.
Beneath thus blackened sky.
And in his home in Babylon,
sleeps the corpse of Angra Mania.
But it cannot die, which can eternal lie;
and with strange aeons,
even death may die."
"Humans are usually helpful to each other.
It is only when both procreation and survival are assured,
that we go mad with power.
That is when we try to find reasons to kill each other, instead.
We invent our own battlefields."
"The Quick die young,
The Brilliant go mad,
And the Powerful stand alone
In a Wasteland
Of their own Creation."
-Quote from video game 'Path of Exile', Skyforth flavor text
It hadn't been friendship; it had been my other self. Because I couldn't ever pretend that anything mattered so much as the world, so long as I remembered seeing all of it. You could only ever have one first priority, and I couldn't ever chose anything else.
Almost literally couldn't, now.
"A large degree," 'Fortuna' said, a slight sad smile on her face. "But everything since then was true. I understand if you doubt me, but... Please believe that much, at least."
Contessa nodded. "It was a gift, Taylor, or at least it was meant to be. I can't lead you down the path you'll have to walk."
The shard shifted again, her body language shifting with it. "And Eva spoke true, when she told you of the difficulty in getting here."
A shift. "But I was able to continue, because a part of me wouldn't ever back down."
A shift. "A part of me always looked forward."
Another shift. "And no matter how dark the path--"
Again. "--I always had a light to follow."
"If we had to ask so much of you--"
"--then at least I could give you the same strength."
I looked into the eyes of the person I'd called Fortuna.
"You're the Path to Victory shard, aren't you," I said, and she chuckled softly.
"I do prefer Fortuna, I think," she said. "It was who I was, the day I chose to kill a god. I am still that girl, in many ways: a memory frozen in time." She closed her eyes.
-Quote from fanfiction 'El Ahrairah' by Anderein, chapter 'Debts Due 4.4'
“That’s fucking stupid,” Lisa agreed. She sat down next to Taylor, turning the television to some quiet channel. “I know it’s stupid. They know it's stupid. They know you. They know where you live, they know where you go to school. But you put on a hat, Taylor. You didn’t kill anyone that mattered. So you’re not Taylor anymore. It’s like math, see? Nice, soulless math. And that’s what justice really is.”
-Quote from fanfiction 'Burn Up' by JinglyJangles, chapter 7
If one of two groups of people were going to die. One group has one hundred people in it, the other has one thousand.
You are the one who has to decide which has to die, and if you don't decide within the next minute, both are going to die.
What would you choose?
Nice, soulless math. And that’s what justice really is.
"I'd have thought that would be scarier," Hermione said. She immediately set out to follow me. "But after the dementors... well, all the dragon could do was kill you painfully."
I nodded, but I kept on walking.
"Is that why nothing seems to bother you?" she asked.
I stopped and stared at her.
"Things bother me," I said. "I just don't let them stop me."
"It just seems like things like pain don't seem to phase you."
"It's always possible to find a new thing to measure everything bad that happens to you against," I said. "Experience enough horror and regular things don"t seem so bad."
"Eventually you become the horror," she said.
I glanced at her sharply.
-Quote from fanfiction 'A Wand for Skitter' by ShayneT, chapter 107
She'd become an urban legend, working from the shadows. As far as the world was concerned she would have vanished forever, even as she made minute adjustments to lead people down the path she preferred.
In all but name, Taylor Hebert was now the God-Empress of Mankind, with an empire that would last until the stars grew cold. If she answered the ultimate question the Entities had posed, how to avoid the heat death of the universe... it might even last forever.
-Quote from fanfiction 'Skittering thief' by ShayneT, chapter 76
"Once it starts, it will not be stopped. The world will burn, and millions will die. The strongest will butcher each other until one of them claims the throne. At least until I take it from them."
Luna downed another glass. To Cornelia, the red wine began to look distinctly as a glass of blood. Her sister locked eyes with her. She could see the insidious gleam in those violet orbs, and it terrified her to the core. If there had been any lingering doubt as to who she was descended from, it would have died in that moment.
She spoke again as the glass returned to the table.
"Then, from the old world's demise, see my empire rise."
-Quote from fanfiction 'Rise of a New Moon' by Icy the Frostbringer, chapter 23
"How much horror could anyone take before they simply started going through the motions?
Desensitized to the point that caring took effort."
-Quote from fanfiction 'Exiled' by fantasyra, chapter 10
Fuyutsuki leaned forward in his chair and braced his chin against his thumbs. "Tell me, Ikari. How do you plan on handling existing witnesses."
"The ones who've seen the boy's display?" The other man blinked, but only once. "Their silence has already been secured."
Fuyutsuki tried very hard not to assume the worst. He was not above voicing his concerns, though. "'Secured' could mean many things, Ikari."
Gendo leaned back in his chair, looking past his glasses. "I am not the former USSR or the Cartels, Sensei. I can order the death of any man woman or child in Tokyo-3, but to do so would be foolish."
"Reassure an old man, then."
Drumming his fingers on the desk, Gendo thought on his answer, and Fuyutsuki tried not to let his surprise show. When it did come, the reply was clear and uncompromising. "Ruling by fear is effective, but costly. Once death is used as a deterrent, I must keep killing, without fail."
It was a cold comfort to know efficiency was what kept civilians alive and well. The Sub Commander nodded once. "Very well, Ikari."

"This is one conflict we will not flee from. By the authority invested in me by God Almighty and the Vatican, I declare the Tenth Crusade against the Ethereal Collective to purge our world of the alien threat and beyond it. Words are no longer enough, and I call upon all who are able to assist ADVENT in bringing this goal to fruition."
-Pope Marcellus, fanfiction 'XCOM: The Advent Directive' by Xabiar, chapter 36
...I hate being the centre of attention and Selene had mostly ignored the cult so her knowledge is spotty, she'd always assumed that since it was her child she'd get her hands on me immediately, but her scans failed her and her shitty parenting skills backfired heavily.
Sucks to be her, now she's a literal slave to her discarded son.
Karma's a bitch with a twelve inch dildo, and she didn't bring any lube.
-Kuro Tepes, fanfiction 'A Gamers Guide to Conquest' by The Dark Wolf Shiro, chapter 9
"Fire is the only Living Element: It eats, breathes, grows and reproduces. It can also die. None of that is true for any other element. While not actually alive, fire comes the closest of all non-living things."
For it also consumes the corpses of its prey in order to live.
For fire to live
-Quote from fanfiction 'Partially Kissed Hero' by Perfect Lionheart, chapter 16 and a personal addendum
Dumbledore continued, his face tragically sad, "Harry... there comes a point for a select number of wizards, when their magical and personal achievements and progress call in question the balancing of... not so much priorities or ambitions... but dreams."
Harry stopped pacing, his back to the Dumbledore.
"... where the killing of one dream allow the fulfilling of another."
-Quote from fanfiction 'The Prisoner's Cipher' by Ecthelion3, chapter 4
Hear me, Lord of Creation.
I tell thee, in my name representing order [BLUE] , I tell thee.
[INSANE] ALL IS RIGHT.
[WIND, FIRE, WATER, EARTH, LIGHTNING]
THY ORDER HAS FALLEN.

Suddenly she understood. She knew what would have been necessary to save and uplift the Rat Clan in that situation. It is the same thing she would have done in those dire circumstances. Suddenly she understood why she had been reverse summoned here. She carried the viciousness of the Rats deep in her heart.
"Single minded devotion to your Art," Rei began, and she became more animated the more she spoke, "You throw everything else away. Nothing else matters. There's no rule you won't break. No taboo you won't cross. You need to be absolutely ruthless. If you had played by everyone else's rules you would have remained prey so instead you had to break those arbitrary limitations and leave them all behind,"
"Break into their homes!" Rei said getting even more animated, "Poison their wells. Raze their crops and salt their land. Burn down their forests. Eliminate anyone and everyone you can. Single minded devotion to your goals. Single minded devotion to power. Everything else is just so much useless distraction. That is how you gained back all that you had lost."
"Yesss…" said Eldest Rat closing his eyes, "Yesss… you have some understanding of our ways it seems," the giant Rat said sounding pleased. "You are correct in what you said. That is certainly how we went on the attack. Going after soft targets. Target their elderly, their eggs, their young. Kill them in their sleep, poison their food. Put on a good spirits-dammed show too. Vicious showed us how to use fear to bring our opponents low. It is part of the essence of our Art."
-Quote from fanfiction 'Walk on the Moon' by SixPerfections, chapter 21
I felt my heart turn cold.
It had always bugged me on what had happened to Mio Hyuuga in the show. The women I knew, who had birthed and raised me in my second life, would have never permitted her children to grow apart from her. She would clung to her daughters, woven herself into their daily lives and made sure that they knew how much she loved them every single day.
Yet in the show she had never made a single appearance. She hadn't even been mention in passing, and until I had been reincarnated I hadn't even been aware what her name was. Though it was never outright stated it was heavily implied she had passed away.
And I was getting a pretty good idea on how she died.
"But then you were born." Danzo carried on, his back still facing me. "The greatest prodigy the Hyuuga Clan had ever produced. Despite of everyone's fear and expectations you were not weak, you were superior. Excelling in every way, both in mind and body, just as Hiashi had promised, thus quelling all those that had voiced their discontent. But I do not believe I need to explain to you what would have happened if things had turned out differently, if you hadn't been born a prodigy."
No, no he didn't. I had no trouble imagining what would have happened, I didn't need to, I had already seen it happen.
Timid and shy, weak in both spirit and courage, she was everything that the Clan had warned Hiashi she would be. Weak. With the evidence there for all to see, Hiashi no longer had a leg to stand on. But my father was nothing if not stubborn, I could easily imagine him refusing to leave his wife. He would have even gone as far as siring another child – Hanabi – in a second attempt to created a strong heir with his wife.
But they were not willing to wait.
They already had all the proof that they needed in Hinata, they would not wait and waste who knew how many more years for Hanabi to grow and prove them right again. No, they had to put a stop to this now before Mio continued polluting the blood of the Main House with her weakness.
So they killed her.
Was that why Hiashi was so harsh on his eldest daughter? Because she was the reason why he had lost his wife? Because of her weakness, the one he had tried to beat out of her in an attempt to rid of it, was that why their relationship had become what it was?
And Hinata, was that why she had been so timid? Because she knew it was her fault that they took her mother away?
I would never know.
All I knew was that if any of my Clan mates still held into any ideas of killing my mother...well, I knew of a room under a certain temple where a little boy could use some company.
Sasuke was probably getting lonely anyway.
-Quote from fanfiction 'A World Full of Monsters' by Fahad09, chapter 11
"Look at what they make us give."
He said softly.
"Look at how much we gladly give.
Look at how much she made us give… and how much we gladly gave."
His voice was hoarse and on the verge of breaking. Palmer couldn't find it in herself to even point a gun at him.
"Everything you need, is on the Nightwalker, and this helmet," Mitchell said, tossing his helmet to Sarah's feet.
With one swift motion, Oxide drew his pistol, pointed it at his temple and squeezed the trigger.
Time seemed to slow down as blood and brain matter was sent flying within the hold. Palmer jumped in shock. She had never seen anyone commit suicide right in front of her, never seen a man desperate enough to put a bullet through his brain.
Slowly Thorne moved towards Mitchell. Sarah had forgotten that the Spartan was standing right next to her.
He didn't jump, he didn't shudder, but his shoulder sagged in sadness. It was then she realised that he had become one of them a long time ago. He was one helluva good actor, able to pass himself off as the quiet and unassuming Spartan, just like Keyes, until they received the transfer.
Gabriel knelt next to the body slumped in the chair, and closed Mitchell's eyes.
"Be at peace."
He whispered, almost prayer like.

After I get my laughter under control I pause. This is great but I need to focus on the important things, Lichdom.
Do I really want to give up my humanity for power?
It takes me another couple of minutes to get my laughter under control again.
