Author has written 5 stories for Naruto.

About me: I'm a female, married, Midwestern artist who's way too old to be reading fanfic. I enjoy anime/manga, video games, cooking, reading, and drawing. I tend to stick to drawing, but I've recently started writing fanfic as well; maybe one of these days I'll make a doujinshi.

I find that I often tend to gravitate towards secondary or minor characters (especially with shounen manga that feature bland audience identification protagonists.) I also tend to like weird/unconventional pairings, especially those that come with all sorts of complex emotional/psychological baggage that can make for interesting reading.

I also am rather opinionated about what I like and don't like about a series; don't take it personally, I'm just surly, impatient, and a little old.

...maybe this is why I like Sasori so much >_>

Note: I don't always post everything I write over here. Check out my linked livejournal for drabbles, kink meme fills, and other random goodies. :)

NEW!
I have an AO3 account now (
goldengrimoire) where I will be mirroring everything and posting any new works, so check over there if a story here gets purged. o/


Favorite Characters and Pairings:

Naruto: I've basically cooled on this manga over the years because of the direction it's taken, although I still write and enjoy the characters.

- Favorite Characters: Sasori, Deidara, Shikamaru, Sai, Hinata, Karin, Suigetsu, Lee, Temari, Gaara, Sakura, Itachi, Konan, Kankuro

- Favorite Pairings: Sasori x Sakura is still on top and Sasori x Sakura x Deidara is my OT3; Sasori x Deidara, Sasori x Orochimaru, Sasori x Kankuro, Deidara x Sakura, Madara x Deidara, Sai x Sakura, Shikamaru x Temari, Naruto x Hinata (utterly adorable,) Itachi x Sakura, Sai x Hinata, Suigetsu x Karin, Nagato x Konan x Yahiko, Madara x Konan

Katekyo Hitman REBORN!: Lal x Colonnello, Gokudera x Haru, Tsuna x Kyoko, Lambo x I-pin, Xanxus x Squalo, Mukuro x Chrome, Byakuran x Shouichi, Shamal x Bianchi, and every combination of bromance around

Ouran High School Host Club: Kyouya x Haruhi, Kaoru x Haruhi, Hikaru x Haruhi, and Kasanoda x Haruhi (Kasanoda's shyness makes this pairing incredibly cute)

Final Fantasy VII: Reno x Tifa, Rufus x Tifa, Vincent x Tifa, Sephiroth x Tifa, Tseng x Elena, Rude x Elena, EPIC TURKS BROMANCE

Harry Potter: Tom x Luna, Tom x Hermione, Voldemort x Bellatrix, Harry x Luna, Snape x Hermione, Neville x Luna, Tom x Pre-OotP!Ginny, Draco x Hermione, Percy x Hermione, Malfoy family hijinks and a bit of platonic Snape Lupin

Hellsing: Alucard x Integra, Alucard x Integra x Seras, Integra x Seras

Labyrinth: I loved this movie as a kid, and wore out at least one videotape copy of it. I prefer Jareth x Adult!Sarah stories, because IMO Sarah needs to be mature enough to stand on equal footing with Jareth.

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei: Probably my favorite anime at the moment; it's an utter crime that there isn't more attention paid to this show outside of Japan. The manga is being published in the US now, check it out! I don't really ship for this series, but favorite pairings would be Nozomu x Matoi and Kino x Ai (there seems to be a bunch of great Japanese fanart sites centering on the male students Ai.)


Updates:

- (June 8, 2012) - Wow I've been gone for a while, huh? Due to the mass-deletion epidemic going around on this site, I'm in the process of mirroring (and in some cases minorly revising) my stories over on AO3, so if you notice a story's gone here, just look for it over there or on LJ. I have been writing all this time, albeit not much in the way of fanfic; I won't make any firm promises but I have been considering picking up some of the stories I didn't finish. Anything new I post will probably be over on AO3 and my journal.

- (June 13, 2009) - Attitude Problem chapter 2 is up.

- (April 30, 2009) - My first full oneshot, Tactile Feedback, has been posted at last! I'm thrilled to finally have gotten this out. :)

- (April 29, 2009) - I've decided that I will continue Attitude Problem, and have begun working on it. The first chapter will probably see some minor revision.

- (April 24, 2009) - Posted another ficlet, Attitude Problem. My oneshot should be ready for posting any day now. :)

- (April 11, 2009) - Posted a drabble, Haircut. My first oneshot is currently in beta. I also set up a livejournal account recently where I post updates about my fic efforts and artwork, so feel free to drop by and say hi. :)

- (March 20, 2009) - I started my first foray into creative writing roughly a month ago. I've got a few different story ideas percolating that are finally taking shape, mostly for my current obsession, SasoSaku. My first oneshot should be ready for posting very soon! :)
