Author has written 3 stories for Puella Magi Madoka Magica/魔法少女まどか★マギカ.
[I apologize for the hiatus, but I definitely have not abandoned "The Bodyguard and the Client," not at all, it's just that I've written myself into a corner and now I have to fix it without totally scrapping the storyline or committing myself to a plot line that's definitely too ambitious for me... Also, I'm trying to put my life back together. However! I have half of chapter eight done and I'm hoping to post it by the end of March. Please feel free to bug me about it, since I have a bad habit of putting things off, too.]
I'm a senior in high school, a girl, and am tragically short (though I've a friend who's shorter). I call myself Teddy and you can, too -- even though my pen name's Dessert Maniac. Actually, I was formerly CommanderBibliophileNapoleon, but then I decided that it was too long, so I changed it to Dessert Maniac on a whim; then, when a couple of friends started calling me Teddy, I considered changing my pen name to something Teddy-related, though that would've just caused unnecessary confusion, so I didn't.
... That ramble about my pen name ... lol.
I love dessert/food in general, hence the name. I'm a maniac for sweets ... though it's bad for my health /sigh.
My Favorites tab (all the way down, past the bio) is a good place to find out what I've read, watched, etc. If we have similar interests, feel free to PM me! but I might not respond immediately/on time, lol. I practically live to read, but writing is a whole different story. I tend to explore worlds, not create them. I've attempted to write fan fiction for Eragon and Harry Potter, but I've deleted those stories only because I lost interest and never got around to finishing. However, I'm dedicating time to write moderately-happy fan fiction for PMMM, as you can see by the following sections.
Together [M] -- Puella Magi Madoka Magica. One-shot. In a happier alternate timeline, Madoka and Homura start a family. Not overly explicit/lemony.
>Written because I was inspired by a work in Archive of Our Own and because I wanted to test out some of the "science" that I'll be introducing in The Bodyguard and the Client, but I ended up not adding that stuff in. As of 9/9/13, I have decided that Together [M] is a complete one-shot; I changed the title because I want to write a collection of one-shots for Homura/Madoka, and I'm thinking of titling the whole thing Together Forever.
>Can also be found in Archive of Our Own under the same title, but it differs slightly from the one here. EDIT: now both versions are the same!
Coping (Not Really) -- Maladaptive Coping: ways of dealing with stress that do not resolve the stressor. Because Homura can't possibly go through so many failed timelines without losing it. Definition taken from (yeah) the internet. Can be mostly taken for cannon, but fits more with my "The Bodyguard and the Client" with minor changes. Warnings: cutting, drug abuse, mild suggestiveness. Trigger warning?
>Yeah ... I dunno where this came from. Anyway, I guess I should say that it could possibly trigger someone. It starts off kind of, err, suggestive, but then in quickly goes downhill. It's suggestive, not explicit, by the way. The self-harm/cutting part was mostly from personal experience, but I have never abused any substances or gone "Bella" soooo those parts are written with significant creative license and liberal amounts of help from the internet. People, I am not perfect, sorry to disappoint.
> ... Nothing else to say, I s'pose. Any concerns, review. I shan't answer PMs no just kidding, I will. OH! It can also be found in Archive of Our Own under the same title.
Works in Progress:
The Bodyguard and the Client -- Puella Magi Madoka Magica. AU. Instead of becoming a goddess, Madoka died. Desperate and losing her sanity, Homura goes back and sets a new timeline in motion. Twelve years later, Kaname Madoka finds herself being stalked by an albino called Kyubey, so she hires a bodyguard, who turns out to be none other than Akemi Homura. Gradually, the buried past resurfaces as Homura falls in love and her world falls apart once again.
>A little suspension of disbelief is required, for the psychology stuff is from my own sketchy knowledge and conversations with a friend of mine who's really into that sort of stuff. Also, I have no idea how one goes about getting a bodyguard, much less bodyguard habits. Homura really shouldn't be working solo, but in this case it's a pride thing. The cover picture (which I found on Tumblr) is basically how they look like; just replace their white shirts with the color of their eyes -- and Madoka's not a bodyguard, though she looks epic in the picture, lol.
>This is the perfect example of something writing itself. Originally, they were all normal humans and Puella Magi/witches/Incubators did not exist, but then I somehow or other changed lanes and now all my characters are going freaking insane.
>Chapter seven posted! :D The plot's moving along and I've included some characterization, so I'm pretty happy with it. I have acquired a beta for the story, yukinagato16, wooo. Several songs helped in writing the bloody part: "Blood Teller," "Kuusou Mythology," a remix of "Magia" and the normal version of "Magia." The second part has no particular soundtrack, though I listened to Homura's "theme" song a bit. Will probably update in two weeks.
>I'm really sorry about the lack of updates! D: I really want to have the chapter out by Christmas, but I'm not making any promises anymore... T_T.
>I have started rewriting and have posted it in Archive of Our Own:. Four chapters have been rewritten.
Something Happy [Title to be changed when published]
> As the title suggests, a PMMM one-shot that's HAPPY for once, haha. Euh, I haven't finished writing it yet, and I have to finish chapter 8 of "Bodyguard...," so it might not be out before the end of March.
Anyway, the following are pairings that I like to read about and am willing to beta for, along with pairings that I tend to avoid reading/will not beta for. Slash or straight, I don't care as long as it's well-written and the pairing makes sense to me.
Harry Potter: Harry/Hermione, Harry/Luna, Harry/Andromeda, Neville/Luna, and Draco/Harry.
Inheritance Cycle: Eragon/Arya, Eragon/Katrina, and Roran/Katrina.
Twilight: Bella/Edward, Bella/Jacob, Bella/Jasper, and Bella/Carlisle [though I'm not really into Twilight anymore].
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: Percy/Annabeth, Percy/Zoe, Percy/Rachel, and Thalia/Luke.
Artemis Fowl: Artemis/Holly and Artemis/Juliet.
Chronicles of Narnia: Digory/Polly, Lucy/Caspian and Susan/Caspian.
Madoka Magica: Madoka/Homura, Madoka/Sayaka, Madoka/Mami, Madoka/Kyoko and Sayaka/Kyoko. [Still reading Oriko Magica, so I don't quite have opinions based on that yet. Also, Madoka's such a player, LOL.]
Fruits Basket: Tohru/Kyo and Hana/Tohru.
Inuyasha: Kagome/Inuyasha, Kagome/Sesshomaru, and Ayame/Kagome.
Mai-HiME: Yukino/Haruka, Mai/Natsuki, Mai/Tate, Mai/Reito, and Natsuki/Shizuru.
Ib: Garry/Ib [I know it's weird...].
Kyoukai no Kanata [Beyond the Boundary] : Mirai/Mitsuki and Mirai/Akihito.
Strawberry Panic: Shizuma/Nagisa and Shizuma/Miyuki.
Sakura Trick: Yuu/Haruka.
Pairings I Don't Like [but everyone has their own opinion, so don't get worked up about this] :
Ron/Hermione -- It's just not reasonable! I think they argue way too much to be a functioning couple.
Hermione/Draco -- This pairing really gets on my nerves, especially pre-seventh year/book. If it's post-Battle of Hogwarts, then MAYBE. But don't hold your breath.
Arya/Murtagh -- Just no. I see no basis at all for this pair. They barely know each other.
Eragon/Murtagh -- I don't mind the slash ... but incest definitely does not sit well with me.
Annabeth/Luke -- I don't think so. "Family, Luke. You promised." Well, he broke his promise. He found redemption later, but I think Annabeth deserves better.
Tohru/Yuki -- I'm sorry, but I happen to ship Tohru with Kyo ...
Inuyasha/Kikyo -- I feel bad for Kikyo, but I think Kagome's better for Inuyasha.
Inuyasha/Sesshomaru -- This pairing just makes me sick. For one, Sesshomaru hates Inuyasha and barely tolerates him by the end of the anime. For another, it's incest! I draw the line at incest, sorry guys.
Mai/Mikoto -- Eh ... I dunno, it's just weird.
Shizuru/Haruka -- Yukino/Haruka for life!
Hiromi/Akihito -- Nooooo.
More About Me, Etc:
What else? I love talking about myself sometimes, lol. I am bipolar (or how about multipolar haha), bisexual, really confused and lost (what a surprise), intelligent (though I guess you have to see it to believe it), and I'm not the nicest of people, I'm sorry. I do try to be friendly, but I'm just naturally a standoff-ish person with standards and expectations, I will admit that. I tend to space out a lot, though it's not that I'm actually thinking about stuff, lol. I'm a senior in high school, and I'm really nervous about moving on to college/university. I want to get into UCLA, but I'm not exactly sure if I have the dedication necessary to keep up straight As in four AP classes. I've managed to end the past three years with straight As ... except for AP Music Theory, but give me a break: music is not my forte and I must've been out of my mind when I signed up for the class. I have a tendency to slack off in the middle [or beginning] of things. I also have a tendency to ramble because I like hearing myself talk. Sometimes I don't feel like talking, though, so I shut up and hunker down to contemplate the meaning of life.
I'm sure that by now you've noticed that I'm a bundle of contradictions. Yep, that's pretty much my life story in a word: contradictory. And inconsistent, now that I think about it. Still, I'm only human. I'm trying to learn.
You can also find me on Archive of Our Own; my pen name is Dessert_Maniac.
Oh! If you've bothered to read this far, I'd like to ask you to check out jazzrun10. She writes for PJO, "Austin and Ally," and marching band.
