Author has written 8 stories for Teen Titans, K-ON!/けいおん！, and Naruto.
Main Hobbies include reading fanfiction and manga, playing video games, visiting deviantart.com (username Monte-chan), and checking out youtube.com (user name Montesama314). I am also a big fan of anime, such as Naruto, K-ON!, Soul Eater, Kill la Kill, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, and Sword Art Online.
Favorite shows with favorite characters:
Avatar: The Last Airbender -- Toph, Sokka, and Zuko
Teen Titans -- Beast Boy and Raven
Danny Phantom -- Danny, Danielle (Dani), and Tucker
Soul Eater (anime and manga) -- Soul, Black Star, Tsubaki, and Death the Kid
Naruto (anime and manga) -- Shikamaru, Temari, and Hinata. I also believe that the Fourth Hokage rules, no matter who wears the Hokage jacket and hat.
K-ON! (anime and manga) -- Ritsu Tainaka, Mio Akiyama, and Tsumugi ("Mugi") Kotobuki. Just the first season of the show, though. The second dragged on too long. Hmm... maybe it needed more Mugi Goggles?
Batman Beyond -- Terry McGinnis, Bruce Wayne (who doesn't love the old man?), and the underrated Maxine Gibson (part-Alfred, part-Robin, all hotness).
I read fanfiction from all of these cartoons/anime, animation being the only thing I really watch now, even in my college years. (Other than that, there's the political satire of Jon Stewart, but there are no fanfiction for his show, are there?)
Just about everything from the DC Animated Universe has caught my eye, but I like Batman: the Animated Series, Batman Beyond, and Justice League/Justice League Unlimited most of all. Young Justice, while not part of the DCAU, is a remarkably good show for one cut short.
I am also partial to the CG animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Ahsoka Tano really grew on me, probably because she also grew as a character. (I still hate Lux Bonteri, though--that little thing they had together almost got her killed thanks to his ridiculous revenge scheme!)
And Sword Art Online... sweet Pantheon, it's too beautiful. The only thing stopping me from watching SAO 2 is an anime-watching backlog and an unwillingness to make myself wait each week.
Preferred Pairings from each of these shows:
Katara x Aang (Kataang), Katara x Zuko (Zutara), and Toph x Sokka (Tokka) from Avatar: The Last Airbender
Beast Boy x Raven (BBRae) and Robin x Starfire (RobStar) from Teen Titans
Danny x Sam from Danny Phantom
Soul x Maka, Kid x Crona (assuming Crona is female, I don't do yaoi) and Black Star x Tsubaki from Soul Eater
Naruto x Hinata (NaruHina) and Shikamaru x Temari (ShikaTema) from Naruto. I'm starting to accept the small possibility of Naruto x Sakura (NaruSaku) as well, though I'd prefer a sibling bond. (Side note: I think Sakura's confession in the Five-Kage Summit story arc was a half-lie.)
As long as neither Naruto nor Sakura ends up with Sasuke, I'm fine... I really don't like that whiner. Mommy and Daddy are dead already! You've had almost 10 years to get over it!
K-On!, there may not be any canon ship between them or between anyone else, but I do love the close bond between Ritsu and Mio; it's both adorable and hilarious.
Batman Beyond -- Terry x Dana's fine, but Terry x Maxine could have been something interesting, I think.
My Avatar is a close-up picture of the three main characters and their weapons from Soul Eater, counterclockwise from left: Death the Kid, Maka, and Black Star.
"You Idiot...": My debut as a writer instead of just a commenter is a Teen Titans fic with Raven as the central character. Kinda BBxRae (you'll see by the end), RobxStar implied. Set after the movie "Trouble in Tokyo", so you know it uses the TV show canon. I've included some interesting pieces from the show as part of flashbacks. Now complete, edited, and including an alternate ending for my fans out there.
"You Idiot... Extra": I've also created a place for any epilogue or side-story. I may put more ideas there as they come along, but the story will always be labeled complete. Your Story Alert tells you about those new chapters, anyway, right?
"Another Time and Place": This Teen Titans story, features alternate universes and timelines for our favorite fivesome of heroes.
What if they were villains instead of heroes? What if they were just high school students? What if Robin really did join Slade?
What if I had done any of them as scenarios?
Why don't you see each universe for yourself?
"The Titans of Tomorrow": My most recent fic, a beast of a oneshot set 25 years after the original Teen Titans series ends. Much like "Another Time and Place," it's a look into a different sort of Titans team--the original roster's successors. Loosely inspired by one of my favorite graphic novels from the DC universe (it rhymes with "Wingdom Come"), you'll find some descendants, some romance, and even a few surprises!
"Howl!": When Ritsu accidentally reveals a very special belated birthday present, things between her and Mio get a little... hairy. It's not as creepy as it sounds... or is it?
"Hunters": Another K-ON! story with a supernatural twist. In a world where man and youkai can meet with horrible results, a seemingly innocuous "Light Music Club" reveals itself to be something much more. Just wait until you see why Azuza is still called "Azu-nyan"... Also featuring a tragic bonus chapter.
In case the next part of any story is not here, you can probably find it on deviantart.com under the username Monte-chan, just like my user name here. It's my Homepage, so you can just click the link above.
Lastly, a fascinating quote from a fascinating series:
"There’s no such thing as a painless lesson. They just don’t exist. Sacrifices are necessary. You can’t gain anything without losing something first. Although, if you can endure that pain and walk away from it, you’ll find that you now have a heart strong enough to overcome any obstacle. Yeah, a heart made fullmetal."
-Edward Elric's last words, from the anime Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.
