Author has written 7 stories for Final Fantasy VII, and Kingdom Hearts.
Hello all, and welcome to RoseOfADifferentColor's page! :D Make yourself comfortable, kick off your shoes and relax. I do hope you'll enjoy the writings here. They will hopefully be well written, but I'm always open to criticism and suggestions. I only ask that critics of my pieces follow the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. I'm always open for requests, but I do have some guidelines, that I'll elaborate on below... Otherwise, welcome! I'm always open to a PM, always happy to discuss a fandom or just have a chat. :D
A little about myself? Well I'm still in school, and I'm what one might call a 'quirky person.' I've been steadily writing for about four years, but I've only recently been posting my work on FanFiction. I try to be as meticulous with my writing as possible, and I hope that my character portrayals aren't too skewed from their originals. I'm a big anime and manga fan, as well as a musical theater buff. But for the purposes of this account, I'm a HUGE video gamer, especially Square Enix's projects, Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts.
I just wanted to give a little explanation to my Pen name. There's a scene in the Wizard Of Oz, where Dorothy and her friends knock on the door to the Emerald City and the sentinel refuses to let them in. Until Dorothy shows him her ruby slippers and he exclaims "...That's a horse of a different color!" Since I thought HorseOfADifferentColor would sound silly, and roses are my favorite flower, I picked Rose instead. The point? I'm a quirky, unique individual, with a completely different color. But that's what makes me me, and I owe a lot to the people I've met on this site, you lovely people know who you are. And I hope you like my writings. XD
Down to brass tacks. Since this is a big determining factor, I might as well lay them out, all nice and clear. You know, Pairings!
THINGS I DON'T WRITE :
1. Slash, Yaoi, Yuri, BL, GL etc. Don't get me wrong, I am a supporter of all types of relationships, gay, straight, etc, etc, etc. I have many friends who are homosexual and I approve of their relationships completely. But as a writer, I'm uncomfortable writing that. And if I'm uncomfortable, then the quality suffers. And I really don't want to post something I don't feel 100% satisfied with. So please, don't request that, for both our sakes.
2. Character/ Paring Hate. Seriously, there are all different types of pairings out there. All characters are created equally and are surely loved equally. If not by you or me, than by someone else. So don't ask me to write an anti anything.
3. Lemon/Lime. See number one. Uncomfortable Rose = Bad writing. I try to stay in the realm of PG-13 and lower for my stories.
Now, onto the fun stuff!
Okay, these are ordered in ranking in what will most likely be posted on the account.
- SoraxKairi: This is the default. There's a switch in my head that's set to SoKai, so just be aware of that.
-TerraxAqua: I was on the fence about this pairing for a little while, but several EPIC writers on here convinced me of the potential of this pairing.
-RoxasxNaminé: Mirroring Sora and Kairi, and the fact that Roxas seems to care deeply for Naminé even without a heart.
-Rikux...?: Okay I'm sure this requires some explanation. I like the RikuxXion pairing and the RikuxNaminé pairing. I can most definitely see the potential for both.
Final Fantasy VII
- CloudxTifa: The promise between them, the fact that Tifa stayed behind in Mideel when Cloud was suffering from identity crisis/Mako poisoning and the fact that they were living together in Edge in between VII and Advent Children all point out their romantic relationship.
- CloudxAerith: I know, Rose stop being confusing! But before Cloud was Cloud and he had an amalgamation of Zack's personality, I feel like CloudxAerith could work. Aerith certainly cared for him.
- ZackxAerith: However, this is my default for Aerith. They fit together so well, and CloudxAerith makes more sense with ZackxAerith precessing it.
- VincentxLucrecia: It's just a given. He punished himself for thirty years because he couldn't save her, among other things.
Final Fantasy VIII
SquallxRinoa: Canon Pairing, enough said.
LaugnaxRaine: See above.
Avatar: The Last Airbender
AangxKatara: Canon Pairing, and Aang's pretty much been in love with Katara, since he first laid eyes on her.
MaixZuko: They're so socially awkward together.
SokkaX...?: Again, I like SokkaXSuki and SokkaxYue...
I'm sure there are more, but as of now, I can't think of anymore...
Well, I laid out the ground rules and introduced myself but if there's anything else, don't hesitate to PM me! I take requests, scratch that, I welcome them, but please, look at the guidelines before you PM me about an idea.
