Author has written 12 stories for Fullmetal Alchemist, Bleach, Harry Potter, and Fruits Basket.

I'm a senior in high school and I spend too much time reading fic- a side effect of my love for books and stories of all kinds.

Penname: Just because.
Gender: Female
Elsewhere on the web: I don't have an Ao3, LJ, or tumblr (yet).

.:. I am your typical fangirl (currently) from the Chicago area.
.:.I used to be an expat brat; I now go to a boarding school in the USA.
.:. I study journalism. I do not pretend to be an expert, but I will try to provide concrit if any "journalistic excerpts" appear in your stories.
.:. I'd love to talk to you about old books, dead languages, journalism, or physics.

Stories:
I stopped writing fanfics a long time ago. I still read them, but not so much on ffnet.
The ones that I do have on here are absolutely horrid and I hate them. Please, do not read them. They reflect a younger, much less mature me, but I can't quite bring myself to delete them. (To put it succinctly: They're from like seventh grade, y'all. I was a terrible writer in seventh grade.)

Books:
I'm not picky. I have trouble choosing a single favourite, so here are some of them:

.:. Harry Potter .:. Lord of the Rings .:. The Hobbit .:. The Silmarillion .:. The Shadow of the Wind .:. Airborn & series .:. Anna Karenina .:. Soulless .:. Oliver Twist .:. Neverwhere .:. Pendragon series .:. The Book Thief .:. Hunter's Moon & series .:. Maximum Ride .:. The Hunger Games .:. Good Omens .:. Leviathan & series .:. Devil in the White City .:. Un Lun Dun .:. Haroun and the Sea of Stories .:. The Beekeeper's Apprentice & series .:. The Wind-Up Girl .:. Sherlock Holmes .:. Night Angel Trilogy .:. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy .:. Anything by Neil Gaiman .:. Percy Jackson and the Olympians .:. Sabriel, Lirael, Abhorsen .:. Blackout/All Clear .:. City of Bones series .:. Alex Cross .:. Temeraire .:. Worldshaker .:. Airman .:. City of Masks & series .:. Wildwood Dancing .:. City of the Beasts & series .:. Ender's Game & series .:. Beastly .:. House of the Scorpion .:. The Brothers Karamazov .:. Hunter's Moon series (Chronicles of Faerie) .:. The Devil Wears Prada .:. Tamora Pierce's books are an old favourite... .:. ... as is the Artemis Fowl series.

Animes & Mangas:

.:. Fullmetal Alchemist (my first love) .:. Axis Powers Hetalia .:. Trigun .:. Hayate no Gotoku .:. Angel Beats! .:. Lovely Complex .:. Bleach .:. D.Gray-Man .:. Fairy Tail .:. Pandora Hearts .:. Soul Eater .:. Mai-HiME .:. Barajou no Kiss .:. Daughter of Twenty Faces .:. Negima! .:. Code Geass .:. Naruto .:. CLANNAD .:. Kuroshitsuji .:. Ouran High School Host Club .:. ChibiVampire/Karin .:. D.N.Angel .:. Black Cat .:. Special A .:. Death Note .:. InuYasha .:. Fruits Basket .:. Azumanga Daioh

TV Shows:

Sherlock .:. Doctor Who .:. Supernatural .:. Avatar: The Last Airbender .:. Star Trek .:. Bones .:. Mythbusters .:. NCIS .:. Criminal Minds .:.

Comics:

I started with everything Marvel, and that's mostly where I stay. There are a few other series that I like (Fables, Sandman, Unwritten, and PS238, to name a few) but when we're talking one of the big two? Marvel.


A WORD OF WARNING:

Please, do not read my stories.
I detest them now. They are immature, badly-written, and in some cases vaguely Mary-Sue-ish.
Yet I confess I do not have to heart to remove them as of yet, so please: just don't read them.

Put quite simply, they suck. For realz, guys.
