Yes, I suppose I should say something here...

I'm a long-in-the-tooth ficcer (more than 20 years now), but I'm new to anime, so as is my custom, I've taken on a new name so I can start fresh.

I live on the United States west coast. I'm married, and have two young daughters, as well as two demented cats. Or is it two young cats and two demented daughters?

After getting my first exposure to the medium with two ecchi comedies, I stumbled upon Yami to Boushi to Hon no Tabibito, which I loved very much in spite of (a) its devastating ending, and (b) my constant problems correctly spelling the title. Following suggestions from there, I wandered down the Yuri road to Strawberry Panic, and now I fear I may be hooked for life.

I love the interactive nature of Internet storytelling, so I'll definitely try my best to answer any reviews. Sometimes my meta winds up being longer than my actual stories...

Cheers!

Current Status: Could someone please turn up the humidifier on the west coast?

Watching List: Space Brothers, Moreitsu Pirates, Kill la Kill, Sakura Trick

I'll Get Back To It List: Kannazuki no Miko (I realize it's widely considered the flagship shoujo-ai series, but That Plot Device really hurt my brain and killed my enthusiasm), Ragnarok (Wow, that first episode was really unimpressive), Ikki Tousen (Though what I've seen of its most recent sequel is actually more intriguing than the original, if you can look past the service -- this is, admittedly, not easy), Sword Art Online (Words cannot describe how angry this series makes me, the more I think about it)

Owned But Unwatched List: Simoun, Beast King Golion, Phoenix, Hell Girl, Witchblade, Girls High, Air, Shattered Angels, Taisho Baseball Girls, Arakawa Under the Bridge, Noir, Full Metal Panic, Full Metal Panic Fumoffu, Burst Angel, Samurai 7, Shangri-la, A Certain Magical Index, Black Lagoon

On The Horizon List: The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan is getting an anime. The squee is strong.

Suggested To Me List: Maria-sama ga Miteru, Clannad, Time of Eve, Lovely Complex, Fate/Stay Night, Dance in the Vampire Bund, Higurashi: When They Cry

Stuff I Won't Admit Having Watched List: I thought that "I Couldn't Become A Hero" might end up here, but as fanservice shows go, it was actually pretty good. A lot better than some of the crap on THIS list, certainly.

Oh My God Did I Actually Just See That List: Shin Koihime Musou: Live Revolution (A concert video starring the cast of SKM. Yes, a concert video. When Chou'un played that solo during the band intro and brandished the butterfly-shaped guitar pick, I think my head exploded from the sheer awesome.)

Chou'un Shiryuu Quote Of The Indeterminate Time Period: "I don't easily scare, like those two fainted at your feet." (Koihime Musou, episode 5)

Inappropriate Line From A Recent Chapter: "Chikaru, any time your breasts make an appearance, it's a cause for celebration." (Strange Fire chapter 12)

Timeline: Now that I have eleven stories all tied into the same continuity (everything except Yuri Force), here is a rough timeline for the order in which events take place. I don't necessarily suggest reading in this order, mind you: this is as much for my own reference as anything else.

At What Point Did I Lose Control Of This Flirting chapters 1-3 --> Making Memories --> At What Point Did I Lose Control Of This Flirting chapter 4 --> Red Bows In Her Hair chapters 1-3 --> Yamihime: Wings of the Butterfly (timeline splits)

(Koihime) South Side of the Sky --> At Greater Length (Tessellation chapter 1) --> What All The Fuss Is About --> The Hunter And The Hunted

(Astraea) Red Bows In Her Hair chapter 4 --> Hand Me Downs chapters 1-14 --> At What Point Did I Lose Control Of This Flirting chapter 5 (concurrent with HMD 14) --> Hand Me Downs chapters 15-23 --> Strange Fire chapters 1-14 --> Koiyamiberry of the DEAD (coming soonish?) --> Strange Fire chapters 15-? --> Suzumiya Haruhi no Yami --> Strange Fire chapters ?-? --> Hand Me Downs chapter 24 (epilogue)

At What Point Did I Lose Control Of This Flirting? reviews
A vignette from the 'pages' of Hand Me Downs: What happens when our fifth-year Etoile turns her hypnotic eyes on the student council president of St. Lulim? Certainly not what she expects... Originally a one-shot written on what was more or less a dare, but it sort of grew legs. Later chapters concurrent with the events of Yamiberry.
