Author has written 9 stories for Bleach.
Rukilex (a.k.a. Shira Anthony):
I'm a huge Bleach fan who discovered the wonderful world of fan fiction 4 years ago. I started writing AU stories about a year later, then decided to try writing completely original fiction. I now have three books published (one het erotic romance and two gay romances) and two more under contract with Dreamspinner Press. I mostly write male/male romance (yaoi) - just love my boys, I guess!
You can find me at www.shiraanthony.com or on Dreamspinner Press's website: I'm also on Goodreads and Facebook under my pen name, "Shira Anthony." I'm WriterShira on Twitter and ShiraAnthony on DeviantArt. Feel free to drop me a line and harass me about updating...lol!
UPDATES (2-24-12): I haven't given up on finishing "Twin Moons". I know, I'm way behind on updates, though! I've got the last chapter of "Twin Moons" about half done, so that will be the first one to get updated. I'm swamped with writing and editing my original stuff right now, but I haven't forgotten about FF!
More about me:
Anime/Manga addict: Bleach (my fav), Eden of the East, Nurahyon no mago, Naruto shippuden, D. Gray-Man, 07 Ghost, Vampire Knight, Monochrome Factor (I like the manga better on this one), Nabari no ou, Saiunkoku Monogatari, Kurozuka, Junjou Romantica, Loveless, Blood...my list grows by the day. My personal pet peeve: I can't stand dubbed Bleach (it's not even so much the quality of the English-speaking actors, it's just the translation/dialogue is SO bad!).
Favorite Bleach characters: (the usual, I guess): Ichigo, Rukia, Renji, Byakuya, Toushirou, Matsumoto, Urahara, Ukitake, Ikkaku, Hisagi, Chad
Favorite Bleach pairings: IchiRuki, HitsuKarin, ByaRen, and most others (I'm pretty open-minded). I prefer pairings in canon (anime or manga), but am okay about a well-written Yaoi or crack pairing. Least favorite pairs - HitsuMomo and IchiHime (did I say I like strong female characters?) I've written yaoi with my writing buddy, Brego Whitecloud under the pen name "Fangirls62." I also have written original stories under my Rukilex pen name on Fictionpress.com.
Fan Art and Music: I'm so honored when readers are inspired enough by my stories to create their own art from it! XD Check out this beautiful piano piece by Anuuki Hitsugo inspired by "Twin Moons": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lJ36ZBn2XZ4 and this one based on the ending of "Irrestistible: Ghost": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHdEKjERg1E&feature=channel She has written a number of gorgeous pieces using Bleach fan fic as inspiration.
And, if you enjoy HitsuKarin, check out this fab art by Moon of Jupiter: Yummy! And a super special thank you to Moon for the incredible rendering of Hitsugaya she drew as inspiration for "Chasing Dragons." He is absolutely perfect - just as I imagined him to be in my fics! Thanks also for the cool avatar of Karin in "Empathy" with her zanpakuto, Masumi. You rock, Moon!
TV/Books/Movies (in random order): Star Trek (any and all), Battlestar Galactica, The Matrix, Harry Potter (of course!), Ann Rice, any Cary Grant movie, LOTR (books and movies), X-files, Star Wars (Eps. 4-6)
Hometown: Cleveland, Ohio
Current Home: The Carolinas
Age: Older than I'd like to say, but happy with it, too
Misc.: collect Bleach and Naruto genga/douga, the art used to plan out the computer animated series (Hitsu and Ichi especially); former musician, now legal eagle and male/male romance author.
Languages: Je parle francais (used to be fluent, now I'm just rusty)! I speak some German and Italian and am trying to learn Japanese.

Here are the links for the uncut/uncensored chapters of Pirate Queen on Deviant Art:
Completed Stories: "Pirate Queen," an IchiRuki romance/adventure set in the ealy 1800's, where Ichigo is captain of a Royal Navy ship hunting pirates in the Caribbean, and Rukia is the Captain of a pirate ship, the Soul Warrior; "King's Key: The Four Prongs", an IchiRuki romance/adventure; "Empathy," a HitsuKarin romance/adventure set post Hueco Mundo war; "Chasing Dragons," the sequel to "Empathy" and "In the House of Tomorrow", which follows the general background of all 3 of my stories and is set 13 years after the war with Hueco Mundo, primarily a HitsuKarin love story/adventure, it also features my other favorite pair, IchiRuki, "In the House of Tomorrow," a RenjiTatsuki romance (because poor Renji deserves some happiness, too!); and "Irresistible," Hitsu/Karin and Ichi/Ruki double pairing under my other pen name, Masumi'sSword. It's an AU gothic vampire fic you can find at: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5041168/1/Irresistible. Also, "Irresistible: Ghost," sequel to "Irresistible": http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5304305/1/Irresistible_Ghost
Work(s) in Progress: I'm currently writing two stories for Bleach, and one "sometimes" story:
"Twin Moons," an AU IchiRuki/HitsuKarin double pairing. Think cross between fairy-tale and Lord of the Rings - sci fi/fantasy inspired by the "Darkover" series by Marion Zimmer Bradley, about a feudal planet (kings, queens, horses, castles) which has been colonized by the Terran Empire. Ichigo is a Regent (king) who was exiled as a young child, only to return as an adult. He struggles to unite the people of his homeworld to resist Terran conquest. Hitsugaya is a would-be king, the heir to the throne of another kingdom, who witnessed the deaths of his family at the hands of Ichimaru Gin. Adventure/romance, epic tale (I'm guessing this one will be longer than my Irresistible fics put together). This one is almost complete - but I've been working on the last chapter and epilogue for an eternity! It WILL get finished!
"Gastrosexual Bleach," my sometimes story - a series of one-shots featuring different pairings and different foods. Updated randomly (basically, when the inspiration hits me in the face!).
"Akuma," an AU IchiRuki inspired by the anime/manga, "Uragiri wa boku no namae wo shitteru." Ichigo sells his soul to the devil (Aizen) to save Rukia's life. Angsty romance set 300 years ago and in the present.
