Author has written 20 stories for Hetalia - Axis Powers, Yu-Gi-Oh, and Yu-Gi-Oh GX.
I have a tumblr: (I mostly spam Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, with some DM, Hetalia and other random reblogs.)
And an LJ: (This is friends-locked mostly. I'll be posting snippets/drabbles there under a filter so if you add me, comment if you want in.)
I love escapism, being a roleplayer and Trekkie, and fanfic feeds into that. I allegedly write for stress relief, but it seems to do the opposite lately! I am trying to improve, but it's a slow and painful process. Kind and encouraging reviews are appreciated. Particularly if you favourite something. Equally tell me what didn't work for you. My GX stuff in particular is on the rewrite pile and I'd like to know what to throw out and what to keep.
I'm a serial Pixiv raider... You can see the full version of my userpic here:
Oh, and the name is supposed to be kind of "hedgehog girl". Because of my tendency to curl up when threatened.
Hetalia got me started on this. My first fanfic was started for the 2009 NaNoWriMo, thinking that if I didn't have to come up with Characters, the Plot part would be that much easier. Sadly this wasn't true and I only managed three chapters in the month. This was the start of The Cabinet of Dr Héderváry which is on indefinite hiatus until I get my Hungary muse back. I know it's a controversial fandom, but I think there's nothing in there that's any more offensive than Allo Allo, or Charlie Chaplin. It's pure satire - presenting ridiculous stereotypes so we can learn through laughing at ourselves. Sure the history may be a little inaccurate, but it gets people interested and if this series is getting people interested in history, world affairs, geography, languages, politics, ethics then hells yeah, I'm going to stick up for it. I hate this image of Hetalia just being for stupid yaoi fangirls. I've learnt more from the fans than I did in school in some cases.
Yu-Gi-Oh! is my latest love. I started by watching the Abridged series, which prompted me to track down the manga online, and then I was hooked. Had steered clear for ages because I thought it was just that kid with the hair and the card games, and I wasn't expecting it to actually have Plot and Characters... I love that all the characters have reasons for being the way they are, and that you can track the impact they have on each other as time passes.
GX... ah, GX. I really wasn't expecting to love it as much as I ended up doing. It was a real struggle to force myself through most of the first two seasons. But it's kind of like Babylon 5 in that you have to sit through a bunch of stuff to make the rest of it make sense, and when you get to season 3 it's just this massive series of gut-punches. That show's really underrated in the fandom, which is sad (although that appears to be changing a little from what I've seen on tumblr). And to anyone who won't watch it because it doesn't have Ancient Egyptian mythology, and it doesn't start off totally grimdark, please go and read the manga. Trust me, you'll love it.
I've just started 5Ds. Not sold so far, but I'm sure it'll come!
Star Trek was I guess my first fandom. It goes TOS>DS9>TNG>VOY. ENT and the reboot don't exist... The reason I hated the reboot is because it took out everything that made Starfleet a wonderful idea, the compassion, the search for utopia, and don't even mention what they did to my precious Romulans. I couldn't stand Abrams to start with and the best thing he's done is to say this regarding a sequel: "I want to do everything I can to make it the best movie possible which might, of course, mean that I shouldn't direct it".
I go for character interactions more than lemon (you won't see much explicit here, partly because I can't write the stuff), and I'll ship anything if you've got a good rationale for it (or if it's just crack-tastic). If I say I ship something that can also mean non-romantically, I just like exploring their relationship, whatever that may be. I like to see in-character, could-be-canon writing (something I wish I could do myself).
My favourites (there are many others but cut for length):
Giripan (Hetalia) - these two just fit well together, and I can't see Japan relaxing with anyone else. They do that thing of complementing each other so the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
Gerita (Hetalia) - because I'm a sucker for fluff.
Prideshipping (YGO) - didn't see this until I watched Season 0 and re-read the manga, and then I couldn't stop seeing it. There's a respect there that comes as close to friendship as is likely to be comfortable for Seto (assuming Kisara doesn't get reincarnated like the rest of 'em) and ffffff the power struggles...
Tendershipping (YGO) is back on the list thanks to writing it with Borath. I'm very picky about how it's done, but when it's right, it melts my heart.
Stormshipping (YGO GX) - I am making it my mission to spread love of this pairing. The world must come to understand their adorkability. I know, I know, Manjoume-loves-Asuka is canon, but he'd treat her like a princess and then she'd either ignore him or walk all over him. (Plus there's the whole Judai thing.) Manjoume needs someone who's going to appreciate him and just let him chill, and Fubuki does that - about the only person who does. And Manjoume's about the only person that doesn't treat Fubuki like he's some kind of idiot.
Tealshipping (YGO GX) - I love Johan's trolling as a counterpoint to Ryo's serious nature. I just can't seem to get what's in my head down on paper. One day I will make this pairing work.
I don't really ship Star Trek as I grew up watching it, so what happened on screen was all there was, pretty much. So it's Spock/Chapel and Scotty/Uhura.
Romantic het pairings are fine by me - I ship a few (does a tiger count as female? XD), just didn't want to put them up there for fear of them being seen as "token". I just read stuff with too many guys in! I figure it's all about how the personalities fit.
I won't go for abuse or non-con in a romantic relationship.
