Once again, welcome to my house. Come freely, go safely, and leave something of the happiness you bring.
Aloha. If you're just tuning in now, then what you happen to have stumbled across is essentially the hub of my internet.I am a sporadic writer. What this means is that I cannot for the life of me write a story where the level of description and detail is consistent for a sizable period of time. This can get incredibly frustrating for me, as if I can't transition between scenes properly the chapter runs the risk of being scrapped altogether.Progress absolutely terrifies me. This may seem entirely unusual, and I will admit that it is. I can't explain it myself, but the act of progression itself is an incredibly difficult thing for me to do, and even when I've done it, looking back on what I've progressed from is the worst part. There've been times when I'm looking back on my stories to try and link up past and present, and I've been filled with the undying urge to scrap it and start over because what I did a long time ago is horrifyingly disgusting in my eyes.I'm having a lot of problems lately. By lately, I mean since the ass end of last year. And by problems, I mean like thrash around while yelling at my own head. It's nothing like voices or some shit like that, but it's this weird fuzzy feeling that gets incredibly annoying. It's like my brain has literally turned to sponge, without all the benefits. I can barely do anything when that happens beside play Catherine, 'cause everything else just gets frustrating. So please, be gentle with me.
Few things about me to start off;
But despite all that, I'm really a nice guy, honest. Hehe.
THEATRE NOBLESSE - NOW SHOWING...
So, this is the part of the show where I just jot a little bit about what's keeping my interest at present, in case you wanted to know. Anime, books, TV, video games, etc.
Current Anime: Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion [for the third time]
I don't know what it is about this anime but it keeps me coming back somehow. It's both wonderful and horrible starting over each time because I can never quite
remember what happened last time, but I know the basic gist of it. I know that it's going to be the most beautiful of rollercoaster rides through the tale of a young man haunted by hatred and revenge and his struggles against and oppressive imperialistic government that seeks to subjugate the world while maintaining a façade of normality among his peers and his beloved younger sister, and yet I also know how it ends every, single, time. I don't know if I'm under the delusion that it's supposed to change, but I don't want it to happen! Suzaku's an arrogant prick! I said it! And for some reason, no matter how many times I turn to fanfiction - this particular anime was one of the main reasons I got started on this site, FYI - there are never any stories that hold my interest. I like a story with it all: a moderate, but not overbearing level of action, a healthy dose of romance, usually from more than one female, a spoonful of humour and a modicum of intelligent thought, like tactics or something. Why can't there be more stories like that?
Current Video Game: Dragon Age II
Honestly, I have no idea why I'm even playing this. I got it for Christmas 2012, and I've only recently started playing it. It is to Mass Effect what Fallout is to Elder Scrolls. That is, exactly the same, only with a different setting. The combat's piss-easy; it's a button masher if ever I saw one. Even the abilities are only a twitch of the thumb away, and honestly, none of them are really worth it anyway. I suppose it redeems itself a little in how its characters interact with each other and you yourself can get to know your teammates and grow closer to them, but really, it's not that great. Though, I am comparing it to the Persona series in that respect, so I may be setting it up for failure. Really, I'm just waiting for my next paycheque so that I can get Saints' Row: The Third and Bioshock Infinite. I've been looking at them online, and they do look mighty sweet.
Current TV Show: Elementary
I'm not a great lover of television, haven't been for a great many years now. It doesn't hold my interest, since most of what gets put on TV nowadays is aimed at a bunch of whiny little pissants who couldn't find their arses with both hands that the media and general public call 'my generation'. The only things I tend to watch are anime anyway, but anime doesn't get put on actual TV here in the UK. At least, not that I'm aware of. If anyone finds any good anime channels in England, though, let me know! (Avatar doesn't count. I don't even have Nickelodeon.) But Elementary is one of the few that can hold my interest. It's Sherlock Holmes, as if that's a surprise. There're a lot of Sherlock remakes and spinoffs on TV nowadays, with the BBC's version with Benedict Cumberbatch being the most popular. I'm sick and tired of hearing about what appears to be a pair of random, vaguely homosexual individuals, one of whom looks like some kind of fish-man hybrid and the other looking like a Welsh pisshead, solving crimes in London. Really, what crimes are there to be solved in London of all places? Jack shit happens there! Oh, the occasional bomb scare on the Underground or a shitfaced twat with a Cockney accent having it on because he thinks he's hard so he wants to protest just about anything. Sounds like a riveting crime drama!
But I digress. Elementary is essentially the Americans' stab at the Sherlock crime drama TV series. And if I do say so, they've made quite the valiant effort. Jonny Lee Miller plays a spectacular Holmes; would it be wrong to say that he makes a very convincing heroin addict? He makes the act of being Sherlock look very real, the whole mind moving at a mile a minute thing, and he humanises Sherlock Holmes. Everything else I've seen makes him out like some kind of detective god. I like seeing something that reminds people that he is human, and he has human problems, such as temptation and betrayal, etc. There's also the fact that he's funny. That might have something to do with it. Also, Lucy Liu as Joan Watson, Sherlock's sober companion, compliments him very well, I feel. It is a very good show, of which I'll be watching the season finale tomorrow [1/6/2013]. It deserves more love, so go do that thing.
THE PROVING GROUND - MIND YOUR STEP
This space right here is the home of all the little thoughts and ideas that pop into my head. It's essentially just a cyber notepad. But it's written here for you guys to take a look at so that you know what might come up in the future, and if you wanna have a crack at any of these in your own way, then by all means, be my guest. Just, you know, credit me. Kay?
Category: Naruto & Bleach
Characters: Naruto U., Dordonii
You're probably familiar with the premise already; Naruto dies and instantly becomes some kind of god among shinigami or Arrancar. He's boosted to the highest level of command without a second thought and that's that. Nothing can hurt him, he's essentially blonde Jesus. I'm not doing that. This is a 'Naruto becomes an Arrancar' where Naruto has no recollection of his past life and isn't strong enough to be an Espada right off the bat. I've been talking for a few days about this story with kurokamiDG, and I've been putting a fair amount of work into this one. It won't flop, not if I can help it. Just keep your eyes, ears and minds open.
Name: For Dreams and Honour
Category: Naruto & Final Fantasy VII
Characters: Naruto U., Tifa L.
Part of a series of fics I'm writing called 'Reasons To Fight', spanning a bunch of struggle-based media like games and stuff. It was initially gonna be limited to a world-hopping adventure through Final Fantasy, but then I started playing Persona 4 again, and well... stuff happened. So yeah, Naruto turns in his headband after Sasuke essentially tears out his heart, crushes it and spits on it, but Kurama don't like that one bit. So he decides that he's going to screw with Naruto a bit more, by sending him hurtling through time and space on the Most Excellent Adventure of all time. First stop, the Planet.
Name: For Peace and Freedom
Category: Naruto & Final Fantasy XII
Characters: Naruto U., Ashe
You know everything I wrote just above this that you've literally just finished reading? Well, most of it applies here to. This is in 'Reasons To Fight' as well, only instead of the Planet, he's going to Ivalice instead. Honestly, I've lavished more love on this story than on Dreams and Honour simply because FFXII was one of my favourite games of all time. Basically, Naruto gets reset after each adventure, though, so you could read them in whatever order you wanted after the prologue.
Name: For Fate and Future
Category: Naruto & Final Fantasy XIII
Characters: Naruto U., Lightning
Third verse, same as the first. Only this time, it's Pulse. And Cocoon. And whatever Square decides to pull out of their crack next. I don't know how to feel about FFXIII at the moment. I didn't enjoy the first game [the Leona Lewis song during the ending was probably the highlight. I don't even like Leona Lewis., the second was fun but was more of a couple of teenagers on a drug-fuelled rampage through the time-space continuum with their magical talking housepet and the frequent reference to the fact that Serah Farron is a massive WHORE. I find myself at a predicament, because I'm not with either of the two factions: I'm not a FFVII fanboy, and I'm not a FFXIII fanboy either. What a kerfuffle. But yeah, Naruto, Lightning, getting it on, who wouldn't wanna read that?
Name: Hand Dipped in Blue Flame
Category: To Aru Majutsu no Index & Ao no Exorcist
Characters: Touma K., Satan (never thought I'd write that)
Now, THIS is where shit gets interesting! As of writing this, there is not a single ToAru/AoEx story in FF's archives. I think that makes me unique _. Both anime I enjoyed greatly, and I'm still praying to God (or Satan, depending on which anime you're looking at) that both of them get another season. I need more sustenance. I'm still trying to read my way through the ToAru light novels, but I keep getting sidetracked. Anyway, yeah, Touma, powers of Satan, all that demonic goodness. The kind of stuff that makes me wanna read on.
Name: In Memoriam
Characters: Ichigo K., Orihime I., Uryuu I., S. Aizen
I still have no idea where this one came from, but it was like a gift from Heaven. Basically, it picks up seven years after Ichigo's defeat of Aizen and the subsequent loss of his shinigami abilities. With them, he loses his memories of Soul Society, Rukia, etc. and becomes a normal human. A detective, in fact, working alongside Uryuu, and loyal boyfriend to one Orihime Inoue. Until, that it, one day when a smoking hot girl gets a job as a clerk and starts hanging out with them at the local bar. From there, it descends into a lusty haze of 'oh shit, what did I do' as Ichigo freaks out about Orihime, this new girl, a strange murder streak across Karakura and the surrounding cities, problems with his memory around high school, and the dreaded psych evaluation. If I'm truthful, it is sort of an amalgamation of all the things I'm in to: there's crime drama, alcohol, romance, alcohol, Urahara, drama drama, hot girls, alcohol, Chad, references to Catherine, alcohol, and a visual novel-style 'pick your destiny' choice for Ichigo. And you, obviously.
Category: Death Note & The World God Only Knows
Characters: Light Y., Ryuk, Elsie
You're probably thinking I'm slightly off my rocker. The correct answer is I am totally off my rocker. But I thought about it, and after watching several anime where manipulative guys seem to get all the girls [Code Geass again] I think it could work. I got a little bit down, at least. I think it'd be neat to see Light take the challenge, and then try juggling being Kira, Misa being Misa, and his duties as 'Capturing God'. He's quite the genius, so I think he could pull it off. It's open to you guys if you wanna take a shot.
Category: Naruto & Final Fantasy X
Characters: Naruto U., Sin, Jecht, Tenten
Another one? Yes. This one was a challenge to me from tremor230, but just check out their page if you wanna try it yourself. It's not gone very far as of yet, but I like what I have. So it stays for now.
Name: Infinite Stratos: Deus ex Machina
Category: Infinite Stratos & Deus Ex
Characters: Ichika O., Tabane S.
This may seem like another strange pair, but I've been playing Deus Ex: HR a lot recently, and I just thought, hey, why not? I gave it a shot and kinda liked what I had about Ichika being mortally wounded by the training model at the beginning, leading to him being practically more machine than man. If you wanna try it, go ahead, but I intend to see this one out too.
Category: Harry Potter series
Characters: Harry P., Lavender B., Fleur D.
Not my usual tender, I know. What can I say? I've gotten into the whole HP craze lately. This story is literally my baby right now. It is having way more love than anything. I have loads of stuff planned for the future, demonic stuff that all interlinks and a Harry that isn't a total pussy but at the same time isn't a complete ass either and is in Hufflepuff and doesn't think of getting married before dating a girl and OH! Loads of stuff that strangely makes Harry more human, considering I've turned him into a halfblood demon. Don't get turned off by the Fleur thing, if you're anything like me. The attraction will be almost entirely one-sided, and probably not the side you think. Harry doesn't like her attention at all at the point of the story she arrives.
THE SOLITARY ARCHIVE - 0 DAYS WITHOUT INCIDENT
Really, don't mind the names. I just really like naming things. Anyway, this is just a space for you guys to keep up to date with my stories so I don't get messages in half-legible English or entirely different languages asking me when the next update is. Just take a look every now and then.
