Author has written 4 stories for Love Hina, Inuyasha, Strike Witches, and Misc. Games.
Three Years Later . . .
And not much has changed, but after seeing how long it had been, I thought it in order to say something new here in my profile. I suppose some things have changed -- these days it's less Love Hina or Inuyasha, and more things like Baka and Test, HOTD, Fairy Tail, Tasogare, Sankarea and Is It A Zombie? (Note the stream of tsundere and undead girls continues :D ) I just finished watching Hataraku Maou-Sama (which my friends lovingly dubbed "Fries With That", which also features a tsundere, and which honestly turned out to be much better than it perhaps had any right to be.)
Right now we are watching Valverave and Gargantia (pardon my laziness for not tracking down the full names) and Stella Women's Academy High School Division Class C3 (which more than makes up for the abbreviated names of the previous two entries, and which, like Fries, is quite good in spite of an unlikely premise.)
I am working on a Sword Girls fic (if you are a fan of either the online or TCG version, please ask support to add a category!) and I am also plotting a massive necro-post for my Strike Witches story, which never really stopped, but continued to be written, off and on, but never updated (looks away guiltily). Undead miko? Undead fanfic story? Eh, same difference.
If you have any thoughts, ideas, suggestions, or other sundry items, please feel free to drop me a line.

I'm never much good at writing these profile things, but if you've been kind enough to click on me, then I feel I owe it to you to say something, so I'll give it a shot! :) My name, at least on the net, is Ammaranth, and I enjoy reading and writing all kinds of fiction, though I am especially fond of what you might call non-traditional media. Artsy and literary are great, but I feel that mediums which sometimes get looked down on -- things like anime, manga, comics, games -- have just as much merit. Take someone like Neil Gaiman, for example. Would anyone seriously consider The Sandman to not have "literary" merit? Even though it is, after all, a "comic book"? (One can say "graphic novel", of course, but you get my meaning.)
It's not that there's anything wrong with traditional forms -- they're great. But for me, some of the stories that have been most meaningful in my life have come from anime/manga, -- like Love Hina, Negima, Inuyasha, and Fruits Basket -- or from video games -- Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy, The Legend of Zelda. I suppose to some people, that must sound weird, but for me, these things MEAN something. I still get misty eyed when I hear the opening strains of the Final Fantasy Prelude, or CT's "The Day The World Revived."
I love the idea of mixing words with pictures, of telling stories with art and sound, as well as paper and ink, but, alas, I cannot draw very well, and so I am left to write stories as best I may, though I would love to one day be part of a manga or doujin circle. Until then, it's pen and ink, and carpal tunnel from too much time at the keyboard :P
When not writing, daydreaming, working, or suffering from a general lack of sleep, I enjoy martial arts, being outdoors (even in February, when it's freezing outside!), cosplay, watching anime, and reading manga. I WOULD enjoy video games if only I had more time to spend on them, but sadly, I don't (Chrono Trigger, I'll rescue you from that dusty shelf SOON! I promise!)
Thank you for reading my profile. Please take a moment to look at my story (soon to be stories), and tell me what you think. I'd love to hear from you.
