Author has written 2 stories for Naruto.
I haven't read many of these myself, so if you're reading it then you must really care. So, hi!
I'm a female college graduate with fairly specific tastes; namely, yaoi. Mostly Naruto, but I'll go for One Piece sometimes. Bleach is out, because there's already romantic feelings present between the characters and I can't make myself read fiction that contradicts those. N and OP are good because the characters are sexual blank slates, so yay for imagination.
I do have a soft spot in my heart (or maybe my head) for drunkfic. No idea why. I prefer well-written drunkfic, not just terribly slurred and hiccupping characters who do radically OOC things. Unfortunately, my obsession has led me to read many many of these, and I can't help myself.
As to bad grammar, I can't stand it. Even if your fic is awesome, if you don't at least spellcheck it, chances are I won't read past the first paragraph. I have a few favorite spellcheck-FAILs that I've been carrying in my head for a while but don't remember the fic of origin. Just as well; if this was you, you probably don't want the acknowledgement. Anyway, to you whose grammar was even more amusing than your awesome story, thanks for 1) "he kissed her genitally" instead of gently, and 2) "his hand rubbed against the bugle in his pants," at which I died laughing.
Another obsession: crackfic. I can't help it, I love crack. It's addictive. I wish I could write it.
Another thing I remember from a fic once that made me giggle: after an angsty SasuNaru romance where Sasuke rejects Naruto because he wants his father's approval, in the author's note at the bottom the author bemoans the fact that everyone always tries so hard for Sasuke's dad. What is he, made out of chocolate? Heeheehee.
So that's me. LOOOOOOONG-time reader, recent writer. Because after NaNoWriMo, I figure what's a few pages of fiction where the characters are already created with their backstory and everything?
Also, I'm certifiably addicted to fanfiction. Literally. I once stopped for a week so I could study for finals, and after three days I discovered I was irrationally annoyed at everyone and their stupid questions and idiotic attitudes and I was like, dude, what's wrong with me? And then I realized: no fanfiction. So it's not a case of "yeah, I do it, but I can control it," it's more like "if I don't read fanfiction every night before bed, feelings are going to be hurt." And no, I don't need an intervention. I'm happy like this.
