UPDATE JAN 2013: the profile below is super old as I had fallen out of fanfic writing for a while, so in general disregard anything that you might read below until I get around to some dusting and cleaning up!
I've been having issues with the email alerts and PM system recently, so my apologies if my replies to reviews aren't as prompt and if you can't message me. I'll usually have it fixed within a day, but I lose any emails that should've been sent in that time. (Grr, ff ... why must you frustrate me so?)
I do tend to disappear for periods of time ranging from a week to several months - real life takes over, I experience massive writer's block, etc etc. I usually return with an armful of new fic and a heap of apologies for my absence.
General disclaimer: I do not own any of the characters in the fanfictions I write, save for a few OCs that I really wouldn't care much if anyone stole anyway. The mangas/animes, canon characters, and any history/settings I draw on belong to their rightful creator. I do not write to seek a profit or for any reason other than to spread the joy of these stories around.
I'm Canadian and proud - but I do tend to use color, honor, soda, etc. simply because almost everything I read is in American English and my MS spellcheck uses American English, and I've never gotten around to changing it -shrugs-
English is my dominant language, but Chinese (Mandarin and Shanghai Dialect) is my mother tongue, and I've been in French Immersion programs since grade 4 - so I can read, write, and speak decent English, Chinese, and French.
I started my first piano lessons when I was three and learned to read music before I could even write my own name, so music has always been a huge part of my life =) I've studied music history and harmony and loved them both.
I'm a total procrastinator, both in school and in writing, and I can get away with slacking off way too often. I'm into math, languages, psychology, music, and history (the last mostly because of Hetalia XD), and if I don't get published (and rich XD), then law's where I'm heading.
Please don't be afraid to PM! I don't bite, and I love chatting with new people =D
I haven't really had much exposure to anime and manga and such, but I'm trying to open myself up and explore whatever's out there. Character wise, I absolutely hate the girls that only serve as a distraction for the main male character. Maybe the main character is in love with her, but they are absolutely useless and so I cheer when they die and mourn if they don't.
I don't ever list fave authors. I also will only favourite a fic if it's completed or (very) rarely, if it has not been updated in a long time but what I've read is sufficient for me to say it's absolutely incredible. It's been a while now since I've used the favorite feature though - I'm compiling a fic archive over at LJ of all the fics I liked, and as a result I've pretty much stopped using ff for that purpose.
I read and write for on a regular basis: only Hetalia now.
I don't do lemons, as of right now. I doubt I have any talent for it and I'm just not interested. I also, in general, do not do fluff (or at least, not very well XD). I prefer angsty and emotional scenes that allow for character depth.
I love reviews, but I'm terribly awkward at replying to them. I do try to reply to all of them, but please don't be offended if I just say 'thank you!' XD I always read all reviews, but I'm afraid I rarely ever know what to say back >>
I have a wonderful beta, who I have known in RL for somewhere around 8 years now, and she probably enjoys pointing out my mistakes more than she should (not that I'm complaining XD).
I have not dropped Crimson and Sapphire, but I am considering doing a massive rewrite because my writing style is so different now. Either way, I will finish it eventually (there's only one chapter in the first 'arc', anyway), so please be patient if you're still waiting!
