Why, hello there, Fanfictionites! Pleased to meet you.
Updates and rambling in general: Wow, I haven't been on this site in a couple of months. I guess I've been super-focused on my novel, and watching Naruto, and college... all of which take a significant chunk out of life. Sorry guys
Here are some things you might want to know about me (or not. I'm probably not of interest to you whatsoever, but there you go)...
1: My name is Cyri's Alter Ego. Not only is 'Cyri' the name of a character in one of my stories, it's also the name of a hamster I used to have. So I can be 'Cyri' if you want to talk to me. I'm a Brit through and through ("What ho, chaps! Fancy a spot of afternoon tea before we hit the cricket?" ...I love that sterotype XD) but I would love to visit Japan and Scandinavia one day... maybe Sweden.
2: I love to write, and I love to read. It is with slight horror that I realise I have become one of those people I was terrified of when I first joined the site three years ago - one of those 'Author has written 15,6457,2357,3542,3445 stories for a gazillion different categories' It's just accumulated over the years, I guess.
3: I'm a terrible obsessive. I tend to fall madly in love with certain book series, (like Warriors, Journey to the River Sea, The Wings of Kitty St. Clair, Private Peaceful, Lord of the Rings etc.) TV shows (Doctor Who is the main one here, along with Sherlock, and... cough... My Little Pony...) and anime/mangas (I adored everything below, and Nabari no Ou is my unrivalled favourite). I also cosplay - I've done Matt from Death Note, Will from Kuroshitsuji, and the Will of the Abyss (aka Alyss) from Pandora Hearts. My future cosplay plans include a Team Magma member from Pokemon, Sasori from Naruto, and possibly Christa from Shingeki no Kyojin. I've slowly making my way through Naruto, and if you have any recommendations, please drop me a PM! Share the love :3
4: I'm a sucker for my favourite pairings. Be it Raikou and Gau in Nabari, Grell and Will from Kuro, Poland and Lithuania from Hetalia, or Mello and Matt from Death Note, you'll be sure to find me on the fandom reading all the fluffiest oneshots. Yeah, I'm a hopeless romantic; that pretty much sums me up.
5: I prefer honesty in reviews. I'm not going to get mad if you tell me you didn't like my story. As long as you're nice about it, if you want to give me constructive criticism, go ahead. That's what'll make me a better writer. But, you know, I like positive reviews as well :P No, genuinely, reviews are what I live for on this site. If you've ever reviewed me, even if I don't reply, know that I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. I really do. If it's not a one-shot, I'll thank you personally on the next chapter.
6: I have an insane sweet tooth. Honestly, I consume enough chocolate to rival Mello.
7: I love music. Can't sing a note, of course, but I particularly like soundtracks when I'm writing. I find shonen anime seems to have very nice soundtracks, (Nabari, Kuro, Loveless, DN, and Code Geass are my personal favourites) as well as Murray Gold's amazing Doctor Who ones, of course. Although I am partial to a bit of good 'alternative rock', whatever that means. Maximo Park are fantastic.
8: I live on other sites too. My name is almost always Cyri's Alter Ego, CyrisAlterEgo, cyri'salterego, or some variation thereof... This is my main internet home, but you can also find me rolling around on deviantART too: CyrisAlterEgo's my name, and for the most part I sketch my favourite characters from anime. Come find me if you're on deviantART, or even if you're not!

Animes/mangas I recommend...
Name: Nabari no Ou
Watched/read: Both :3
OTP: Raikou/Gau. For ever and ever. They're the cutest thing I've ever seen, and... just yes.
Favourite character: Gau Meguro
Other awesome characters: Raikou Shimizu, Kazuhiko Yukimi, Yoite, Kouichi Aizawa, Tobari Kumohira
Sub or dub: Dub. Everyone seems to hate the Nabari dub, but I think Yukimi's voice is perfect in the dub, and so is Gau's, and also I can't hear Raikou's Japanese voice without thinking of the Undertaker from Kuroshitsuji...
Name: Ouran High School Host Club
OTP: Hikaru x Haruhi
Favourite character: Kyoya Ootori
Other awesome characters: Kaoru Hitachiin, Mitsukuni Haninozuka, Tamaki Suoh
Sub or dub: Dub, 'cause J Michael Tatum is amazing.
Name: Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler)
Favourite character: William T Spears
Other awesome characters: Ronald Knox, Grell Sutcliffe, Elizabeth Middleford, Sebastian Michaelis, the triplet butlers (especially when Alois allows them to speak!)
Sub or dub: Um... either. I watched series one in dub and series two in sub and I liked them both. I'll say the sub, because I think Sebastian's voice was better and I'm in love with William T Spears and his Japanese seiyuu...

Sub or dub: Dub, for the awesome/sucky/hilarious accents.

XxXIceshadowXxX drew this for Lost! It's also now Lost's cover picture! I love Cyri's eyes in it!

So, that's me! My dream, I think, isn't unusual for this website - my life would be made if I ever managed to get a book published. And I just adore this site, it's perfect for aspiring writers who want to improve their skills. Hopefully, in the three years I've been here, that's what I've done.
After all, you can stop me from being an author, but nobody in the WORLD can stop me from being a writer.
Much love to all my readers,
Cyri's Alter Ego
