Hmm, I seem to have this bad habit of writing/finishing/posting fics that have already been conceptualized several YEARS ago, just now. Together as One and Puzzle are the most recent examples. Real life and missing-in-action muse are the culprits.
Well, better late than never, right? :)
To DAIMYO, a reviewer of Dinner With Me, who left this comment - "First of all it's ''Shell Sharks'', not ''Shell Killers'' and second, it's
''3,2,1 ... LET IT RIP!''." (Since you left no contact details, I decided to leave my response here.): Thank you for checking out my fic. But to clarify things, first of all, it's the original version of the anime that I used (I believe that's pretty clear in all the chapters.). And second, I've watched it before posting the fic. You can verify the Shell Killer and GO SHOOT! parts by watching the episodes in their original language.
You're actually READING my bio?
Anyway, I'm not that good when it comes to writing. If you must know, English is not my first language. Still, when I see or watch a good anime, or when I feel nostalgic over one that reminds me of the good old days (no matter how average the show may be), I write fanfics about it to remove the different thoughts about the show crowding in my head (and therefore stop distracting me from whatever things I have to do). HOWEVER, whenever I get to the middle of the fic I'm currently writing, another different idea enters my mind and my hands get itchy to start that other fic and I never get to finish the first one... Also, the best ideas always enter my head whenever I'm not supposed to write, but when I have all the free time to do it, I suffer from writer's block (this is SO ironic).
I like weaving my own ideas into a fanfic but I'm fonder of crossing two stories or more. Crossovers are more fun to work on. :)
Due to some reviews and PMs...
If your fics have anything in common, what would that be? Hmm... it would be the ideas behind my fics took shape a loooooooong time ago (like, months) prior to their date of publication (see reason above). Oddly, most of my Yuugiou fics are an exemption to this.
Also, my fics are based on the original (and therefore possibly less-known) version of the series... which is probably the reason I don't get as much reviews as other authors, especially in the Yuugiou fandom.
Speaking of original version, the way characters address each other in my fics usually just mirrors how they really do in the original. This is not just only to preserve the original and remain accurate but also because, specifically in anime, given the suffixes that reflect one's status, people are rank-conscious. Therefore, even a simple drop of -kun, -san, etc. that might be just normal in other countries (also possibly because of no available direct translation when in conjunction with the name) would actually be significant in how one character would treat another. And while the other name references may have a direct translation, consistency is important to me. Hence, all as original. Simply put, rank change has weight in some of my fics.
And as a general observation, if my fanfics do not contain romance or even the slightest trace or implication of it, they receive only few reviews. It's been tried and tested already.
Romeo no Aoi Sora
Tenisu no Oujisama
Mou hitori no Yuugi aka Atem
Bakuten Shoot Beyblade
JUST COULDN’T RESIST LOVING THESE PAIRINGS (in no particular order; they're not necessarily canon):
Zorro x Lolita
one-sided Zorro x Alicia (This has possibilities... Either that or I'm thinking too much; well, I can't help it.)
Romeo no Aoi Sora
Alfredo x Nikita (I simply ADORE this pair! Alfredo seems to be the only one who can see past Nikita's tough exterior. And Nikita really cares about him. Too bad it's one-sided. And he died.)
Mou hitori no Yuugi aka Atem x Mazaki Anzu (even though it's one-sided)
Jounouchi Katsuya x Kujaku Mai
triangle: Mou hitori no Yuugi/Atem x Mazaki Anzu x Mutou Yuugi
Bakuten Shoot Beyblade
Kai x Hiromi
Rei x Salima
Kain x Salima
Looking back at my past works, I know how crappy they are but I'll edit them once I have time. For now, I just made their format consistent because for some reason, fanfiction . net screwed up my earlier established format (especially with the paragraph and divider style) that the entire text crammed itself and rendered itself hard to read. Hey, if someone's going to read my way unpolished fics, the least I could do is make them physically presentable.
And how could I forget, a thousand thanks to all who review my works / add me/my fics to their favorite authors/stories list / add me to their author alerts / etc! Just knowing about them boosts my drive to write even more.
Oh yeah, since you're reading my bio and all, please review my works! It helps to provide encouragement if they are okay! Constructive criticism is accepted. Flames aren't, especially if they burn out of hatred or dislike just for the pairing. Let’s have a little respect here, please.
Thanks! Until then!

Hi! Thank you for reviewing Puzzle. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who noticed the injury issue. Hmm, well, I've never thought of a sequel post-episode 14 and post-episode 17, but now that you've mentioned it, I'm considering this idea. It might take a while, though, if ever I write one or both. Thanks for mentioning this possibility in your review. :)
