Author has written 8 stories for Bleach.
Rukilex (a.k.a. Shira Anthony):
I'm a huge Bleach fan who discovered the wonderful world of fan fiction 9 years ago and ended up with a professional writing career when my first story was published in 2010. I don't write fan fic anymore, but I still love my anime and manga! I now have 20 books published, nearly all with Dreamspinner Press. I now write exclusively gay romance (yaoi) - just love my boys, I guess!
I've written a trilogy about mermen shifters called The Mermen of Ea, a series about classical musicians called Blue Notes, and many more stories. So if you like yaoi, you might want to check them out. You can find them all on Amazon or my publisher's website. Shoot me an email if you like M/M, and I'll send you a freebie!
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.
More about me:
Anime/Manga addict: Yuri on Ice, Swort Art Online, Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi, Bleach, Eden of the East, 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 ANYTHING (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 (*drools*), 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.
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!); "Gastrosexual Bleach," a series of one-shots featuring different pairings and different foods.
