Author has written 9 stories for Naruto, Harry Potter, and Bleach.
Hello peeps - I don't think I'll be writing anymore for the next two years or so - I'm so out of time for generally everything, therefore I'm on haitus (again) - this also means that all my fics are on haitus - for an undertermined amount of time. Much apologies to those who may have/are read/reading any of my chaptered fics, if anyone wants to continue them, then by all means send me a message and we'll talk it out (: Thanks,
- Bitter-sweet Teardrops
I like to go by the name Tamar, Or Bitter-Sweet (My real name will remain a mystery).
(Just a bit of nerdy-ness for you, a Bittersweet is a type of flower, which means truth. So on the technical side of things, my penname (Bitter-Sweet Teardrops) can be translated to "Teardrops of Truth". I find that rather interesting, since when I decided on this penname, I didn't know this bit of info. Anyhow, please continue with whatever you were reading prior to this. .)
I live in Australia, I'm a ABC (Australian Born Chinese for any of you people who are thinking differently.), in 1995 (you can do the math.)
I am female. (Seriously, does 'Bitter-Sweet Teardrops' sound like a masculine pen-name to you??)
I like: chocolate, watching my friends play Crazy Taxi, and then laughing at them when they die (for those who don’t know what Crazy Taxi is, it is a game, which is extremely addictive), Naruto, Bleach (though not as much as Naruto), watching anime, Spring (the season, though I HATE the hayfever that comes with it), reading in general, cherries, watermelon, strawberries, pineapples, reading fanfiction, playing the piano, Textiles and Design, my little sister (even though she’s more annoying than helpful), browsing through the profiles of other fanfiction-ers (yes, I know I’m weird, but I’m proud of it!), talking to my friends, and playing the piano.
I don’t like: hypocrites, bullies, pairings which don’t make sense at all (eg. SasuHina (Naruto). Seriously, I just don’t understand what people are doing, putting these two together. They just totally don’t match! I reckon the only girl who’s suitable for Sasuke is Sakura, because anyone else is just weird. And I don’t like SasuNaru either. Because yaoi is not my thing.), celery, tests/assessments/exams (but hey! who does?), math & science (I think they’re alright, and they are useful, but sometimes, I wish that they were less complicated), people who din’t like to try new things, really mushy custard apple, stepping on dog litter (have you noticed that less and elss owners decide to clean up after their dog? It’s terrible!!), really tall grass and a heap of others.

-My friends are the type of people who would spend hours trying to drown a goldfish, but I love them to death anyway.
-Yes Madam, I am drunk, but in the morning, I will be sober, and you will still be ugly - W. Churchill
-Education is important. School, however, is another matter.
-There’s nothing wring with arguing with your self. Its when you argue with yourself and lose when its weird.
-I am perfectly organised, as long as nobody asks me where ANYTHING is.
- Growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional.
I got the following stuff in a email, and I really enjoyed reading them so here they are: (If you dislike reading copy and pasted stuff, then just skip this...)
The Laws of Anime Version 6.0
Originally compiled and edited by Darrin Bright and Ryan Shellito
1. Law of Metaphysical Irregularity
The normal laws of physics do not apply.
2. Law of Differentiated Gravitation
Whenever someone or something jumps, is thrown, or otherwise is rendered airborn, gravity is reduced by a factor of 4.
3. Law of Sonic Amplification, First Law of Anime Acoustics
In space, loud sounds, like explosions, are even louder because there is no air to get in the way.
4. Law of Constant Thrust, First Law of Anime Motion
In space, constant thrust equals constant velocity.
5. Law of Mechanical Mobility, Second Law of Anime Motion
The larger a mechanical device is, the faster it moves. Armored Mecha are the fastest objects known to human science.
6. Law of Temporal Variability
Time is not a constant. Time stops for the hero whenever he does something 'cool' or 'impressive'. Time slows down when friends and lovers are being killed and speeds up whenever there is a fight.
7. First Law of Temporal Mortality
'Good Guys' and 'Bad Guys' both die in one of two ways. Either so quick they don't even see it coming, OR it's a long drawn out affair where the character gains much insight to the workings of society, human existence or why the toast always lands butter side down.
8. Second Law of Temporal Mortality
It takes some time for bad guys to die... regardless of physical damage. Even when the 'Bad Guys' are killed so quickly they didn't even see it coming, it takes them a while to realize they are dead. This is attributed to the belief that being evil damages the Reality Lobe of the brain.
9. Law of Dramatic Emphasis
Scenes involving extreme amounts of action are depicted with either still-frames or black screens with a slash of bright color (usually red or white).
10, Law of Dramatic Multiplicity
Scenes that only happen once, for instance, a 'Good Guy' kicks the 'Bad Guy' in the face, are seen at least 3 times from 3 different angles.
11. Law of Inherent Combustability
Everything explodes. Everything.
First Corollary - Anything that explodes bulges first.
Second Corollary - Large cities are the most explosive substances known to human science. Tokyo in particular seems to be the most unstable of these cities, sometimes referred to as "The Matchstick City".
12. Law of Phlogistatic Emission
Nearly all things emit light from fatal wounds.
13. Law of Energetic Emission
There is alway an energy build up (commonly referred to as an energy 'bulge') before Mecha or space craft weapons fire. Because of the explosive qualities of weapons, it is believed that this is related to the Law of Inherent Combustability.
14. Law of Inverse Lethal Magnitude
The destructive potential of a weapon is inversly proportional to its size.
First Corollary - Small and cute will always overcome big and ugly. Also know as the A-Ko phenomenon.
15. Law of Inexhaustability
No one EVER runs out of ammunition. That is of course unless they are cornered, out-numbered, out-classed, and unconscious.
16. Law of Inverse Accuracy
The accuracy of a 'Good Guy' when operating any form of fire-arm increases as the difficulty of the shot increases. The accuracy of the 'Bad Guys' when operating fire-arms decreases when the difficulty of the shot decreases. (Also known as the Stormtrooper Effect)
Example: A 'Good Guy' in a drunken stupor being held upside down from a moving vehicle will always hit, and several battalions of 'Bad Guys' firing on a 'Good Guy' standing alone in the middle of an open field will always miss.
First Corollary - The more 'Bad Guys' there are, the less likely they will hit anyone or do any real damage.
Second Corollary - Whenever a 'Good Guy' is faced with insurmountable odds, the 'Bad Guys' line up in neat rows, allowing the hero to take them all out with a single burst of automatic fire and then escape.
Third Corollary - Whenever a 'Good Guy' is actually hit by enemy fire, it is in a designated 'Good Guy Area', usually a flesh wound in the shoulder or arm, which restricts the 'Good Guy' from doing anything more strenuous than driving, firing weaponry, using melee weapons, operating heavy machinery, or doing complex martial arts maneuvres.
17. Law of Transient Romantic Unreliability
Minmei is a bimbo.
18. Law of Hemoglobin Capacity
The human body contains over 12 gallons of blood, sometimes more, under high pressure.
19. Law of Demonic Consistency
Demons and other supernatural creatures have at least three eyes, loads of fangs, tend to be yellow-green or brown (but black is not unknown), and can only be hurt by bladed weapons.
20. Law of Militaristic Unreliability
Huge galaxy-wide armadas, entire armies, and large war-machines full of cruel, heartless, bloodthirsty warriors can be stopped and defeated with a single insignificant example of a caring/loving emotion or a song.
21. Law of Tactical Unreliability
Tactical geniuses aren't...
22. Law of Inconsequential Undetectability
People never notice the little things... Like missing body parts, or wounds the size of Seattle.
23. Law of Juvenile Intellectuality
Children are smarter than adults. And almost always twice as annoying.
24. Law of Americanthropomorphism
Americans in Anime appear in one of two roles, either as a really nasty skinny 'Bad Guy' or a big stupid 'Good Guy'.
First Corollary - The only people who are more stupid than the big dumb Americans are the American translators. (Sometimes referred to as the Green Line Effect.)
Second Corollary - The only people who are more stupid than the American translators are the American editors and censors.
25. Law of Mandibular Proportionality
The size of a person's mouth is directly proportional to the volume at which they are speaking or eating.
26. Law of Feline Mutation
Any half-cat/half-human mutation will invariably:
a) be female
b) will possess ears and sometimes a tail as a genetic mutation
c)and wear as little clothing as possible, if any.
27. Law of Conservation of Firepower
Any powerful weapon capable of destroying/defeating an opponent in a single shot will invariably be reserved and used only as a last resort.
28. Law of Technological User-Benevolence
The formal training required to operate a spaceship or mecha is inversely proportional to its complexity.
29. Law of Melee Luminescence
Any being displaying extremely high levels of martial arts prowess and/or violent emotions emits light in the form of a glowing aura. This aura is usually blue for 'good guys' and red for 'bad guys'. This is attributed to Good being higher in the electromagnetic spectrum than Evil.
30. Law of Non-anthropomorphic Antagonism
All ugly, non-humanoid alien races are hostile, and usually hell-bent on destroying humanity for some obscure reason.
31. Law of Follicular Chroma Variability
Any color in the visible spectrum is considered a natural hair color. This color can change without warning or explanation.
32. Law of Follicular Permanence
Hair in anime is pretty much indestructable, and can resist any amount of meteorological conditions, energy emissions, physical abuse, or explosive effects and still look perfect. The only way to hurt someone's hair is the same way you deal with demons... with bladed weapons!
33. Law of Topological Aerodynamics, First Law of Anime Aero-Dynamics
ANY shape, no matter how convoluted or odd-looking, is automatically aerodynamic.
34. Law of Probable Attire
Clothing in anime follows certain predictable guidelines.
--Female characters wear as little clothing as possible, regardless of whether it is socially or meteorologically appropriate. Any female with an excessive amount of clothing will invariably have her clothes ripped to shreds or torn off somehow. If there is no opportunity to tear off the afore-mentioned female's clothes, then she will inexplicably take a shower for no apparent reason (also known as the Gratuitous Shower Scene).
--Whenever there is a headwind, a Male characters will invariably wear a long cloak which doesn't hamper movement and billows out dramatically behind him.
First Corollary (Cryo-Adaptability) - All anime characters are resistant to extremely cold temperatures, and do not need to wear heavy or warm clothing in snow.
Second Corollary (Indecent Invulnerability) - Bikinis render the wearer invulnerable to any form of damage.
35. Law of Musical Omnipotence
Any character capable of musical talent (singing, playing an instrument, etc.) is automatically capable of doing much more "simple" things like piloting mecha, fighting crime, stopping an intergalactic war, and so on... especially if they have never attempted these things before.
36. Law of Quitupular Aggultination
Also called "The Five-man Rule," when "Good Guys" group together, it tends to be in groups of five. There are five basic positions, which are:
a) The Hero/Leader
b) His girlfriend
c) His Best Friend/Rival
d) A Hulking Brute
e) A Dwarf/Kid
Between these basic positions are distributed several attributes, which include:
37. Law of Extradimensional Capacitance
All anime females have an extradimensional storage space of variable volume somewhere on their person from which they can instantly retrieve any object at a moment's notice.
First Corollary (The Hammer Rule) - The most common item stored is a heavy mallet, which can be used with unerring accuracy on any male who deserves it. Other common items include costumes/uniforms, power suits/armor, and large bazookas.
38. Law of Hydrostatic Emission
Eyes tend to be rather large in Anime. This is because they contain several gallons of water, which may be instantaneously released at high pressure through large tear ducts. The actual volume of water contained in the eyes is unknown, as there is no evidence to suggest that these reservoirs are actually capable of running out. The reason water tends to collect in the eyes is because Anime characters only have one large sweat gland, which is located at the back of the head. When extremely stressed, embarrassed, or worried, this sweat gland exudes a single but very large drop of sebaceous fluid.
39. Law of Inverse Attraction
Success at finding suitable mates is inversely proportionate to how desperately you want to be successful. The more you want, the less you get.
First Corollary Unfortunately, this law seems to apply to Otaku in the real world...
40. Law of Nasal Sanguination
When sexually aroused, males in Anime don't get erections, they get nosebleeds. No one's sure why this is, though... the current theory suggests that larger eyes means smaller sinuses and thinner sinus tissue (see Law #38 above). Females don't get nosebleeds, but invariably get one heck of a blush along the cheeks and across the nose, suggesting a lot of bloodflow to that region.
41. Law of Xylolaceration
Wooden or bamboo swords are just as sharp as metal swords, if not sharper.
42. Law of Juvenile Omnipotence
Always send a boy to do a man's job. He'll get it done in half the time and twice the angst.
43. Law of Quadrotriscadecophobia
There is no Law #43.
44. Law of Nominative Clamovocation
The likelihood of success and damage done by a martial arts attack is directly proportional to the volume at which the full name of the attack is announced.
45. Law of Uninteruptable Metamorphosis
Regardless of how long or involved the transformation sequence or how many times they've seen it before, any 'Bad Guys' witnessing a mecha/hero/heroine transforming are too stunned to do anything to interrupt it.
46. Law of Flimsy Incognition
Simply changing into a costume or wearing a teensy mask can make you utterly unrecognizable to even your closest friends and relatives.

Anyhow, that’s around it. I hope (if you’re a weirdo like me and read through my whole boring profile - and skipped all the copy-and-pasted stuff) that you’ve been entertained for a while, and if you have time, please leave a little message in the form of a review if you decide to read my little fics.
Oh, and by the way, feel free to visit my fictionpress account : http://www.fictionpress.com/~bittersweetteardrops or http://www.fictionpress.com/u/687721/ (If you prefer) :)
For the people who are reading or following Back To Back, I've...decided to put it on hold for a little while, because even though I've got the plot line planned out, there are holes and gaps which I'm still working on filling. I won't be ditching the story, it's my longest one yet, but I apologise for making you wait. I'll be coming back, but I won't be updating for a while.
I promise I'll make up with oneshots.
I am a rather lazy updater, I tend to forget that I have chaptered fics which have yet to be finished, so I apologize if those who are reading my chaptered fics are kept hanging. I won't abandon fics, I think that they are best finished, so please hang in there, they will be completed eventually.
Constructive criticism (sp?!) is always a welcomed source, I like to improve my work and whats better than a review? That said, I really do hope you enjoy my fics, becuase I do work hard on them, and try to remember to update them when I've got the chance (usually when I'm supposed to be studying, but can't be bothered to I know I'm horrible, but I can't help myself)
So I'm sorry...and I'm not dead, so it will be continued.
And that is all, please enjoy yourself, and give a review becuase it makes my day when I recieve feed back. Thanks!!
