Author has written 10 stories for Naruto.

Yep. So. About me.

I'm female. I'm old enough to know better, but young enough not to care. I love taiko, hence the penname. If you don't know what taiko is... then you're missing out! Search 'Kodo drummers' on youtube and you'll probably get a bunch of videos of exemplary taiko, to taiko-inception your life.

In case you are wondering, my avatar is NOT the Sharingan. The 'three comma' symbol is called a mitsudomoe and it's a Shinto symbol. Wiki it if you want to know more about it in that regard-- I have it on my avatar because it is often used in taiko, branded either on the drum heads or on the performers' clothes.


Blanket Disclaimer:

I make no money off of writing here. These characters and worlds are generally not mine. I'm only borrowing them for some amusement.


THINGS


The Philosophy of Self (and Something to Live For)

These are personally my favorites of my stories. I'm not entirely certain why; it may perhaps be because I liked the tone of them, it came smoothly to me when I was writing them. And I was pleased by the ending I was able to give the characters. It felt clean, redeeming.

Going Sideways

Going Sideways has fanfanfiction! SomebodyLost was kind enough to start writing a collection of drabbles/shorts inspired by my fic. This is the first bit of fanwork I've gotten and it's a real honor! Check it out at http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8858437/1/Going-Waysides

The 'Dream' Universe

Four of my fics are a series. I'm going to post the order in which they should be read here, just in case it is otherwise unclear. Perchance to Dream - Ravel, Unravel - Shades - Horizons


FIC STATUS


All fics are complete. I am taking a break from writing Naruto fanfiction, though I'll still be lurking around the fandom. Thank you to all who give these stories and ramblings a go. Don't hesitate to PM me, because I am keeping up with my messages. I receive and cherish all reviews, even if I might not respond directly to them.

I have another account here, which I wrote under before becoming TaikoHawk, and to which I am now returning. If you are interested in Rurouni Kenshin fanfiction, check me out as Relik.
