Hello to whoever is taking his sweet time to read this.
Went to Philological Highschool, the class of Classical Philology- Latin and Ancient Greek, with the minor of English and Japanese on the side. Also have very basic knowledge of Russian, Spanish, and Chinese. Currently learning German. Love 'em languages.
Majored in the field of Psychology, specialized in Industrial Psychology, though I also have a basic certificate in Forensic psychology, and write articles for psy blogs mostly on Clinical Psychology phenomena.
An avid reader and an incorrigible workaholic. Always on my toes.
Wow. Way to make this sound like my CV.
Anything else, more personal? Feel free to randomly PM me, if only to chat - I like having penpals from all over the world. If you look past my incurable sarcasm, I can be pretty friendly. :)

1. *NARUTO fanfic- "The Price of Living" - Rated: T - English - Adventure/Suspense
Summary: Knowledge of the future is not the safest thing to possess, she learned...
Warning: I started writing this fanfic when I was very young (waaay back in 2009), so of course it's crap. Still, seeing that I've been writing it for literally years, it gets better (I hope? does it?). Some day I may come back and edit the shit out of first twenty or so chapters, but for now it's a sort of a time-capsule for me, containing my thoughts, emotions, knowledge, the whole world outlook at that age. It's both embarrassing and psychologically interesting for me to analyze.
Other than that, I basically learned English by writing this fic- I would have never reached this level of proficiency without reading other people's work and spending hours on Thesaurus looking for the right words to use in my writing, so thank you FF net for that! (who says fanfiction isn't educational?)
Betas: Nuttela's Biggest Fan (chapters 1-4), chapters 5-10 are unbetaed (obviously, need to fix that), Miranda Panda-chan (chapters 10-20); Nevervana (chapters 21-currently) Honest, guys, you're the best! Especially you, Nevervana dear. But you already know this. :D
For readers: If you would like to write a POV chapter, or an OCxNaruto char pairing chapter, or anything TPoL related, you can try your hand at writing your own drabble/one-shot/multichaptered fanfic. The same applies if you're interested in drawing fanart for 'The Price of Living', or making a fanmix soundtrack. You don't have to ask for permission, just do it whenever and however you feel like doing it, and I'll adore you. Just lemme know when you do, so I can put up the links for the world to see and partake in its miracle.
ONESHOTS (can't even express how honoured I am that these talented writers wrote fan-fanfics for TPoL!):

My replies to anonymous reviews (only those with a nick):
InARealPickle: Your reviews aren't anonymous, but your PM function is disabled and I can't answer you privately, so I still just really wanted to thank you for all of your reviews. :) You're totally right about that earlier chapter with Kabuto and their discussion about souls, not gonna even argue there. I wrote all those Sound chapters about 6 years ago, so I didn't at the time see all the scenes (like the one with Kakashi and his father), but that is really no excuse, as I had certainly seen the whole thing with cursed seals and the God of Death and Orochimaru's 'soul-hands' haha. So yeah, my mistake-- good catch! Not sure how I could fix that chapter though, since I really don't feel like making up an entire new dialogue, which is its centerpiece. Any ideas? Thank you for not being put off by that and continuing to read the story, especially for taking your time to review it chapter after chapter-- I really appreciate that. Hope you'll enjoy the rest of it!
jonny: No worries about Hana hating Akane- it is only normal for them to be happy to see each other after all the time and pain they both went through. Thanks for the review!
Chapter 38: updated!
