I'M BACK. AND DAMN DOES IT FEEL GOOD TO BE BACK.
- Lione 'Tabuukilla' Fortuna
"Could you imagine what would happen if I were to somehow harness the collective reality-warping powers of man? Every day we change reality for something, someone, without even knowing it, whether it be the grass we step on or the man we say hello to. Maybe that guy we say hello to changes his reality to being one of loneliness to realizing someone cares. Now multiply that by 7 billion and give that power to one person. Wouldn't that be amazing?"
"Create a story? Impossible. The story writes itself in the infinite realm that is my mind that I barely even scratch the surface of. It merely commands my hands to write and type. Or maybe I'm too philosophical and trying to sound cool and all zen-survivor-mentor dood. Blah, screw it. I'm going to go play Risk of Rain."
Because I pretty much felt like making this a trope page. Anyways, here we go onto the fanfiction profile page!
Under construction :D This will be slowly uploaded as I go!
Also if you've seen Tabuukilla on the site, that was old me. You could see it as symbolic I got a new account but that was because I forgot the old one plus I don't even remember the email for it :D
And hey, I finally decided to make a Twitter account! Follow me if you feel like it, at @Tabuukilla !
Aaaaand if you're also a fellow NaNoWriMo writer, here's my profile! Send me a message!
Aaaaand perhaps more unfortunately, I lost a gaming bet. If you see "Tabuukilla" on MaiOtaku (yes, I shit you not), that is me. Because FUUUUUUCK you friends and your ability to play Halo.
Story Summaries (the ones I work on/finish, anyways):
[Current Project] Armored Hearts
Category: Infinite Stratos/Armored Core
Summary: Ever so slowly, the IS began to replace the AC, its proud pilots fading into history. For some, such as Operative 4034, it means retirement. But it doesn't mean the end for him or his Operator. Their roles suddenly flipped as they find themselves dragged to IS Academy, they'll find out what a normal life might just be like and how deep the mystery of their sudden replacement runs.
Notes: The project that brought me back to life post-Storms Overhead. Brought about after playing so many hours of Armored Core IV and V during the break from college (lol)
Eternally Damned [Complete] "One shot to get it right. Succeed and find salvation. Fail and only eternal damnation awaits you."
Category: Infinite Stratos
Summary: The Eternally Damned, the first rebels against the tyranny of the Infinite Stratos, destined to forever roam the earth until their mission, which is to bring the world to how it once was, with equality for all, make their final push. Their target as they make their way onto the island of their enemies is the unbeatable White Knight, the first IS ever made. Follow their ultimate suicidal push as they fight with everything they have... since if they don't win, they'll lose it all.
Notes: Formerly named Legion of the Damned but turns out there's a bit of a trademark on that. AU of the Infinite Stratos universe where the IS is killable, and is about the end of a rebellion against the rule of the IS.
Infinite Stratos: Prototype Spartan [Complete]: "Life is never easy. Especially when you're the first SPARTAN."
Please Note: I really do not want this to be recommended on TvTropes or any site. It's not really all that good.
Category: Infinite Stratos and Halo meld.
Summary: It all happened so fast, fighting for his life against invaders one second in DC, then waking up back in Japan. Kira Orthun wakes up after having his arm blasted off, finding a new robotic arm in its place. And thanks to Tabane Shinonono, now wields a formidable MJOLNIR and IS mix. With his new found weaponry he begins his mission to bring the world back to its previous state, one where equality was for everyone. But it won't be an easy fight; he's got secret organizations, society as a whole, high school, and an unwanted harem to deal with. But let it be known that a Spartan's life wasn't easy... not even the first.
Notes: My first moderately successful story. Typical OC introduction into the IS universe with some extra sideplot and ship teasing. Just hit 20 chapters as of 4/7/2013 as well, and Season Two is COMPLETE! Season Three comes after exams!
Update: COMPLETE! However, while this fight has ended... the rest still remains to be finished. Omake 1/4 completed.
Omake One: Beyond The Veil - A spinoff-sequel of sorts, following the adventures of Majestic Leader, who ends up in an alternate timeline similar to his own... except for the fact his beloved leader had died several years ago.
Omake Two: Classified Information - Kira decides that everything he had been falsely charged with isn't enough, and decides to ramp it up for the laughs.
Update: NOW writing a Rebuild of Prototype Spartan. Because it just wasn't good enough the first time around.
Storms Overhead [COMPLETE, HOLY CRAP: "The road to both redemption and salvation is a long and hard one indeed."/"Every action has an equal and opposite reaction."
Category: Familiar of Zero (Zero no Tsukaima) and inFamous crossover.
Summary: Kurt 'Gig' Bright was known as many things. The Wrath of Odin, The Hammer of Thor, Zeus' Rage... monster. He had once abused his powers for his own gain, looking out only for himself, but he met some people that changed him. With his lover dead and his old friends drifting away, he sees no problem sacrificing himself to save the other Conduit Kids when the militia attack their hiding place. Though little did he know that a certain pink haired mage would be calling out for a powerful familiar...
Notes: OC insert as a Conduit, and he knows how to use his powers to totally mess with the world. Hilarity and Character Development ensue. And of course, an introduction for technology. But for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction...
[Canceled] Uncertain Skies: "We brought forth a new day. But for some of us, the sun never rose."
Category: Familiar of Zero (Zero no Tsukaima) and inFAMOUS crossover.
Summary: The sequel to Storms Overhead. Ten years after the events of Storms Overhead, life has been fairly well. For most people. Even in the future crafted by blood, sweat, and tears, even in the so-called "happy ending" Kurt delivered, there still exist shadows that linger of Halkeginia. Mounting tensions between two factions in Germania. The fierce competition to be the suitor favored by Queen Henrietta. The mysteries of what lie beyond the grand oceans and sprawling lands unknown to most people. The rumors of a cult dedicated to resurrecting Kurt Bright. Conduits appearing when the device to create them being thought long destroyer. And of course... the reason for the return of Louise to Halkeginia for the first time in ten years.
Notes: YOU GUYS WANTED IT, SO HERE GOES NOTHING! I'll admit it had always been on my mind, but... you guys gave me that final push when I put up the anniversary omake. Goddammit. Well, let's hope this turns out well.
Notes 2: Cancelled because I grew to really, really dislike this story because it just didn't feel... alive while writing it.
MapleStory: The Spiral Path: Somehow I crossovered MapleStory and Gurren Lagann. Pretty much take Akito (essentially Kamina) and place him as the Pirate Hero (the story came out before Lumi release, people!), mix together with other Heroes, and watch the situation go... for better or worse.
Never Ending Universe: "Write the story of eternity side by side. Despite it all, love will find a way."
An alternate take on Nagisa fight scene during Phantasy Star Portable 2: Infinity. My first real tragic work.
Phantasy Star Universe: To Brighter Day, Revised!: "To the skies beyond. Never stop, even as you pass the heavens themselves."
Because somehow I managed to mix Phantasy Star, Gurren Lagann, Infinite Stratos, and Final Fantasy IV. Follow Alexander Seta Narukami as he leads the way to the sky as he struggles both with fighting the SEED and the eternal damnation known as high school.
Ultramarines: Stratos Unit: "Even in this world of darkness, the light of the Emperor will light a torch. Rise up, young Orimura, and make yourself a legend, and become the hero for man to follow."
Category: Infinite Stratos and Warhammer 40K meld.
Summary: Ichika Orimura, after walking out of his home, found a mysterious black suitcase. Opening it, he found many a thing... including a biography of a Space Marine. Hilarity and shenanigans ensue, and before he knew it, Ichika trained himself to become a Space Marine, to become a hero that MAN so desperately needed in the oppressive world of the IS. And despite the various tests and trials in his path, such as Phantom Task and his unwanted harem (ESPECIALLY his unwanted harem), he continues to trudge on, determined to bring glory to the Imperium and its undying Emperor.
Again, I don't even know how the idea came to me about mixing Warhammer 40K and Infinite Stratos. Maybe it's because I read Shinji and Warhammer 40K, but I'm not sure. Seriously though, it is one of my more successful stories, but not updated too often as it's hard to get into the mindset of a Space Marine at times.
Future Project Plans:
Rebuild of Prototype Spartan - You Are (Not) The First "Half man. Half machine. All of the world on the line."
Because it wasn't good enough the first time. Because the author of two years ago thought that sufficient hilarious awesomeness would trump somewhat realistic thoughts. And he was very wrong. -Me, responding to a PM on why I was rewriting it
Expected Time of Posting: August 25th, 2014.
Category: Infinite Stratos/Halo meld
Summary: When things change, you never know if they're for the better or worse. A new possibility, a new beginning, not even close to the original. A prototype, if you will, on its own. It's up to you whether or not the second time around is any better. The first of many takes his first few steps in a new world with new eyes. It's time to wake up. Fight for what you believe in.
Yup, planning to rewrite the story that first did very well to me. Except this time, with more mature themes, more character development, and a world that isn't so sunshine and rainbows.
Planned Rating: High T/Light M for most of it. Medium M and above chapters are specifically noted for graphic content of a: violent, gorey, and/or sexual nature. And yes. That is in fact an and-slash-or.
Preview - "Unlikely Bedfellows"
"Cover us," I weakly whispered, picking her up off the ground. She gave a groan as I hoisted her wounded marine style and I tried to keep her still while holding my pistol for some extra firepower.
"I know... I 'll do what I can." Madoka said with a pained look on her face, "Silent Zephyrs has taken heavy damage, though. Please tell me you've got another gun."
"I take it you fancy a sniper rifle?"
"Something a little less bulky."
I recalled the pistol before pulling the DMR out of storage, having E clear it for other's usage, "Single shot, scoped. Called the Designated Marksman Rifle."
"That'll do." she nodded, taking the weapon, "Let's get Commander out of here..."
Con...tacting...homebase... E said in my head, flickering from the damage previously incurred, Previous link up...point... roughly twenty klicks north from...here...
E, just rest, okay? Take it easy until we get back.
I...I am to protect...
I can handle myself--Ugh, pain's settling in, gotta hold out. Just... keep yourself awake. We'll pull through. We always have.
"Alright... evac's twenty klicks north... it's going to be a long night... let's get started."
Preview - "Final Hope"
-This is Orthun Kira. I'm leaving this recording in the event I don't make it back. I'm sorry \unintelligible\, I know that we've always do things together, but this I gotta do alone. If I die out there on this mission... I want you to take the Spartans and lead them onward. Take my place as their leader. They'll trust you. Orthun, over and out.-
She stared at the tape that contained the recording for the longest time, unsure how much time had gone by, the tears going streaming by her cheek.
Despite it all, after every battle he fought with others, he'd fight the final fight, and finish the final fight, alone.
[Current Side Project, In Planning] Protector Of Dragons: "For the glory of Kaiser!"
Category: High School DxD/To-Be-Revealed/Semi-Skyrim crossover
Summary: Abel Kodokuna did not expect much out of his life, which he considered to not have much worth in the first place. However, he would still defend himself, but that was pretty futile against the supernatural. After taking a spear of light through the stomach, he is revived by Rias Gremory, which reveals the legendary power of the Protector of Dragons inside of him. FOR THE GLORY OF KAISER!
Note: High School DxD and a special game that I am not yet revealing (though if you know where the title is from, you know what it is). Pretty much standard OC inserts change stuff.
Inner Demons: "What lies behind the skin and eyes?"
Because MapleStory and RosarioVampire somehow got mixed. Because Checky messed with one too many portals, and suddenly the Demon Slayer is on the bus to Youkai Academy, with his Demon Aegis and skill set brought all back down to Level One. And he is sure as hell pissed. But it's not like there's all too much to stop him from getting back, and as time marches on the Demon Aegis seems to be weakening. What lies behind his purple skin and battle hardened eyes?
Monsters: "Blacklight. Conduit. Aragami. Human. Which one is the real monster?"
God Eater Burst/Prototype/Infamous Mega Crossover. Again, more OC inserts with Shifting POV.
Zero, Infinity, and Everything Inbetween: "The world is full of extremes. Yet at the same time, there's so many things in the middle..."
Infinite Stratos/Gurren Lagann/MegaMan/Others. Like Infinite Stratos but more POVs and other people added to the mix, a lot more expansive on the IS universe.
Frontier (still considering a rename): Phantasy Star Online 2. With harem antics. Just 'cause. And plenty of fighting.
Helios: "The Price of Tomorrow is Not Cheap."
Category: Infinite Stratos
Summary: The result of an RolePlay between me and four friends, done for Yuki's creative writing class, and being novelized by me. Actual description: At first it was thought only woman could pilot an IS. They were proven wrong by a young man in the middle of nowhere, Lione Irivasel. Rising through the storms of what the world throws at him, the abandoned son of one of the world's greatest IS pilot takes on the ideals of his father that had gone long ago, ideals that told of an older world of equality. Even with the darkness, the light of his soul and spirit refuse to die, seeking to Reclaim the lost and forgotten pride of man. Its name is... Helios.
Notes: CoWritten with four friends, breaks canon quite a bit. And as usual, at least one Giga Drill Break attempt. Gets a bit dark at times. And by dark, we mean you're gonna need a lot more than a flare gun dark.
Rating: High T, M at times.
FAQ Related to Fanfiction Stuff
Since I got a lot of PMs regarding stuff about Fanfiction writing and whatnot, I decided just to put the most commonly asked stuff out here. It's quite small right now, but then again I'm starting this in like the ten minutes I have but I'll get to it later.
How do you get started?
Write and post, that's all I have to tell you. I started out as a nobody too, when I began posting (again, three year hiatus before I came back if you wanted to know). But that's the best and worst part: You're a nobody. No one has an idea of what to expect from you, so you're free to go wherever you want. But if you're a nobody, then it's a bit difficult to get reviews and readings because you're relatively unknown. But fret not! You'll get there someday! Hell, my first story only had like, two reviews and I kept on writing, and now I am glad that I did.
How do you get known?
Again, keep writing. When someone discovers you that has a following and favorites your story, then for anyone who checks out their profile and finds their favorite stories will see yours on that list! It's all a game of patience and determination. Just keep writing and eventually you'll hit that one day that gets you ahead.
Is there a specific reason you write a lot of harem stories?
Uhhhhh... sure. They're amusing for me to write and they give me a way to add in comedy and drama to a situation. That and it makes for some awesome scenes that deconstruct the harem genre later on. Plus I like characters that try to deny romance with multiple people chasing after him. It makes for some fun writing seeing as I like the first person stance.
How do you create a character?
You don't. I'm serious. You don't make characters. Or at least, I don't. I have never had to create a character. They just come to life naturally. I didn't really have to sit there and draw them out, think about their flaws and what their personality would be. The concepts just come, and I build from there. I don't consider that really creating the character, but more of less just giving a concept to life. And then, when you put that character on the pages of a word document or paper if you draft like I do, they begin to live on their own... okay, that's a little too philosophical so I'm going to stop right there.
Truthfully I just use parts of myself and give them a little more than just a particular trait. Kurt/Gig from Storms Overhead is the 'redemption seeker' in me combined with my not-so-nice moments. Toss in some lightning powers and his cause for redemption alongside backstory and voila! Kira Orthun from Prototype Spartan is my prideful fighter that considers people equal. Though I think you'll notice a theme in my writings that often goes along equality; whether it be gender equality or social equality. I guess I'm just that sort of person.
Where do you come up with ideas?
Oh you have no idea. Because my mind is a very, very crazy place. Seriously, it might just be that I play a crapton of games and listen to music. You read thing, you listen to music, and soon you have a musical idea with an OC. Or you just wonder how a scene might've gone differently. I don't really know. I guess it comes with being a mathematician-engineer-ish person: You try to find out how everything can fit and how things can all be different with one change.
Why have your stories become a little darker over time?
BECAUSE DECONSTRUCTIONS ARE FUN! :D
No, seriously, I don't know. I have no idea.
So uh... I remember writing stories that were all happy and stuff. But then I read them and realized there was no challenge, no real development. And so... I decided to give my characters conflict. And then I wanted to create a realistic conflict, difficult conflict, ones that would change a character. And that, of course, meant I needed to think in a deconstructive manner.
Trust me, I like a good idealistic story, but deconstructions are just... nice, to me. The idealistic ones, anyways.
For example: Storms Overhead. Deconstruction of Power Runes, Summon Everyman Hero, yadda yadda... but yet there's that hope for Gig to become redeemed. Of course, there are times he makes the wrong choice. It's hard, but yet when he does the right thing, it's fun.
Remember, happy endings are not given, but earned.
What is your opinion on fix fics?
They can be good.
They can be bad.
My preference though, follows my single rule for a fix fic: For every problem you solve, you must create a new problem or further worsen a problem in the story. Yes, it may be happy and all that if everything gets fixed. But that's boring. I like a story that makes me smile that this problem was fixed, but make me still worry about the characters when they deal with a new problem.
That of course, was the problem when I wrote earlier fanfiction. Take for example, Prototype Spartan. Nothing new. Sort of boring, looking back on it.
How in the hell do you seem so casual about writing? Some authors seem to take their work very seriously and have it show while you've got emoticons in your author notes.
Well, that's because I am a very unserious dood. In writing, anyways. But don't get me wrong, I take my writing very seriously. Quality, all of that, and whatnot. Bleh.
Though just because I take it seriously doesn't mean I don't have fun. That's why there's never a day where I go "Oh great here we go, time to write another chapter" because quite frankly, I love coming in at the end of a day to write some more. Besides, I feel that I'm a humorous guy. You don't see too many serious stories from me because I like snarky, snide, and sarcastic protagonists that bring some fun and flavor to the world they're in. That also explains why I'm not too keen on the drama part of things between people because weeeeeell serious time can be very serious and I'm not Sirius at all.
But yah. That's really all I got to say on that :D
[Complete] 1) Meet an actual Tsundere. Done, because apparently my sister fits all the requirements to be a Tsundere. Scary. Also, Clare has become a tsundere, and Minaka is now showing tendencies of being a tsundere...
2) Eat the $1000 dollar ice cream sundae in New York
[Complete] 3) Eat the Breakfast Ice Cream Sundae... I think it's in New York (Holy moly that was both really delicious but at the same time really disgusting.)
4) Actually get my Mercedes to Lvl 200. Or any of my characters in MS. Lumi's currently around 170 DX
[Complete] 5) Survive the apocalypse in 2012. If it happens. If the world ends in a meteor strike, I will cosplay as Cloud, climb onto my house, and when the meteor is about to hit, jump up, yell "SEPHIROTH I'M COMING FOR YOU!" and then perform an Omnislash. Somehow.
6) If there is a zombie apocalypse, survive.
7) Complete ten stories on this site.
Appearance: Well, usually I'm wearing my favorite custom shirts that I've made (aka grey/white/black with the Infinity Sign from Phantasy Star Portable 2: Infinity) or a dress shirt, then black jeans, longcoat, MP3 player around my neck plus headphones or clip ons depending on my mood really. If I don't feel like talking it's the headphones, which are Audio Technia ATH M30s. Clip ons are just for looking awesome :D Philips clip ons, just so you know.
Age: I dare you to guess! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahahaha!
Step One: Have basic outline and plan on what to do
Step Two: Literally write shit up as I go and make edits to make things fit.
I am not kidding on that one. The only fic this doesn't apply is my Infinite Stratos fic (specifically Prototype Spartan), which has a VERY detailed plan on how to go. However, here's an example from The Return. All I have planned is the social links for each chapter and character interactions with one another. Dialogue? Battles? That is all made up as I go due to my ridiculous and overactive imagination... or have the source material XD
Other Things: Every anime I watch for something usually ends up being a harem anime. Examples!
Infinite Stratos: Saw the robots and said to myself 'Sweet, robots gonna kick some ass!'. Cue me watching first few episodes. Reaction? "[Where the] fuck are all the robots?!?
Rosario Vampire: Vampires that beat the living crap out of people, heck yeah! Screw your sparkly vampires, THESE ONES ARE AWESOME. Then I saw the anime. Yeah. Pantyshots: The Animated Series, as TVTropes puts it.
Hell, could go ON about this, but nah.
Continuing on Other Things: I do not have a grey/green/blue hair fetish. Just because I like Alisa (God Eater), Sanae (Touhou), and who knows how many blue haired girls there are DOES NOT MEAN I HAVE A FETISH FOR THEIR HAIR! I would just like to get that out of the way. *beings mumbling incoherently about stupid friends. Can't stand them, can't live without 'em* Anyways, I am about to learn fencing, starting up on Iaido, might take up boxing on the side as well. Do not make me angry... you won't like me when I'm angry...
Oh, I also can't stop making references to anything when I talk. Seriously, I think on one school field trip I saw an anime/manga/movie/videogame reference in everything. That is correct, you read that right.
Back to Other Things, while I don't seem like the type, you might term me as a tiny bit of a closet romantic. I'm not opposed to romance and stuff but I tend to stay away from it yet the fact that The Power of Love in every series has ingrained itself into my brain and therefore part of my head (Damn you Lovers Arcana!) is constantly trying to make a romance scene out of everything. It's irritating. I also play piano, trumpet, piano, violin (WAAAAY out of practice on that one!), harmonica, piano and recorder. Overly Long Running Gag, anyone? Which brings me to my next point...
I am a troper. Yes, I am a troper, who has become addicted to TvTropes. You Have Been Warned by me that if you go there you may not return to your old ways of life. You will so tropes everywhere you go, and it WILL haunt you for the rest of your life.. unless you embrace it like me! :D
Books: Hm, All The Myriad Ways is a good read, and I'd recommend The Undiscovered Self. And as for fiction... You can't go wrong with Harry Potter, ANY Tom Clancy novels, or Alex Rider. Or Legion of the Damned. THAAAAAAT is a good book.
Music: I like most things except for Pop which can burn in a fiery pit of hellfire for all I care. Seriously, stop making songs about drugs, sex, drinking, and immoral things. You are corrupting the next generation. Yes, I am not afraid to voice my opinion. I know what it is like to be an outcast. While you're not part of any group, you do get this sense of freedom that no one can hold you to them against your will. I also dislike modern rap (Old rap was really good, actually) unless you're talking Lotus Juice, who does the rapping for PERSONA 3!!! Or the guys from Gurren Lagann with Row! Row! Fight The Power! Classical is okay at times, but it's mostly boring. My favorite songs though are Emerald Sword (Rhapsody), Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen. Unfortunately they never play past the beginning anywhere I see it played), Welcome To The Black Parade (My Chemical Romance), Walk (Foo Fighters), Best of You (Foo Fighters again), Sorairo Days and Happily Ever After(Gurren Lagann), and my SuperAwesomeHyperUltra favorite, The Great Escape.
Montage Song: Welcome to The Black Parade or Spirit Never Dies, by My Chemical Romance and Masterplan, respectively.
Song to play on piano: Believe Me from Touhou. All hail Sanae.
Song to play on guitar: Walk, Foo Fighters... or Madison Rising's version of the Star Spangled Banner. Playing with your teeth hurts, by the way.
Video Games: Halo, Modern Warfare 2 (Haven't played any CoD since that. I just like MW2 for some reason), Assassin's Creed, Final Fantasy, Earthbound, Team Fortress 2, PERSONA!!! (Especially Arena. My main is Labrys followed by Yu), BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger (My main is Noel Vermillion), God Eater Burst, MapleStory, Katawa Shoujo, and SLENDER! Nah, just joking on that one. Seriously, that game is sc- *static*
Anime/Manga: YuYuHakusho, Yugioh (all of them. Except for you, Zexal and whatever the new series is that my friend said was coming out) and by the way I play with a Synchro Deck (Yusei based if you wanna know), Infinite Stratos, Persona 4 The Animation, Neon Genesis Evangelion, The Anti-Eva Gurren Lagann, Code Geass, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, To Aru Majutsu Mo Index, Boku Wa Tomodachi Ga Sukunai (Again another friggin' Unwanted Harem series DX), RosarioVampire, G Gundam, High School DxD (Not for younger viewers. Trust me), High School of The Dead, Cowboy Bebop, ORIGINAL Pokemon up to Hoenn (After that it all goes downhill), One Piece, Hellsing, Soul Eater, Gundam 00, and a bunch more!
TV Shows/Western Animation: Freakzoid (Did someone say Candle Jack? Oh shit I sa), Tom and Jerry, The Original Ben 10, Codename Kids Next Door, Danny Phantom, Happy Tree Friends, Psych, Monk, first season of White Collar (Was kinda funny like Psych but then Humor was overriden by SUPER SERIOUS PLOT), Jimmy Neutron (FOR SCIENCE!), That 70s Show, Ninja Warrior, X Play, Attack of The Show, and a lot more.
Movies: Commando (Not an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie... THE Arnold Schwarzenegger movie), Air Force One (Get off my plane!), The Shining (Come read this profile reader... forever... and ever... and ever...), The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya (YAY! Asakura the Knife Nut!), Lion King 1 1/2, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, Evangelion Rebuild 2.22 You Are (Not) Alone [Moon Man Says No! So does Frocobo, Rush Hour, Terminator, Spaceballs (I've gone... plaid. In murschendyezing!), and Monty Python and The Holy Grail.
Story On-Site: Fairly English Story by SamJaz, hands down. It is the main reason I decided to come back to writing is because a story like that just brought me back to fanfiction. Seriously, give it a read. You will NOT be disappointed.
YuGiOh Card: I won't pick Shooting Quasar Dragon (I could buy it, but I'm saving up for computer parts to build a new one) because it is absurdly powerful, but my next choice would either be Scrap Dragon or Majestic Star Dragon.
Characters: Ooooooh fuck, this is gonna take a while, huh? I guess I'll start listing them off. Mainly anime characters though. *HUGE INHALE* Shinji Ikari, Simon The Digger, Kamina, Yusuke, Lelouch, Ichika, Yu Narukami, Kyon, Touma, Soul, Alucard, Luffy, Rivalz, Just Kidding, Domon (THIS HAND OF MINE GLOWS WITH AN AWESOME POWAH!), Haruhi Suzumiya, Sena, Yusei, Minato Arisato, Teddie, Liz, Candle Jack (Oh not aga, Alisa, Sanae (No green hair fetish you sick perverts!), Master Chief, Labrys, The Heavy, Demoman, and Medic, Squall Leonhart, Zidane, Ezio Auditore, Slenderman, Gordon Freeman, Moka, Noel Vermillion, Mercedes, Lilly Satou, Rin Tezuka, Misha (WAHAHAHAHA) Hanako Ikezawa. WOW, try saying that all in one breath! I can do it, so can you!
Character Meeting: You can not beat Tomoya meeting with Nagisa at the beginning of CLANNAD. Do not even try.
Pairings: Not even going to get into that one! That'd take a while...
Now for DISLIKES... Or not since that list is WAAAAAAAAY too long to be put on this site. Or the author is just lazy. But it's definitely the first, no doubt on that one. Right guys, you have faith in me, right?!

I don't care who you are, what you look like, how old you are, where you're from, what you do for a living, what religion you are, your sexuality, your opinions, SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE loves you and cares about you. Be it your friends, your family, or some random person on the street, there's always someone that wants to see you smile, even if it doesn't seem like it. Love and affection are present everywhere you look, and if you're considering hurting yourself, for the love of God, think about this before you do it. Even if nobody you know or met cares (and I guarantee that they do), there's a million people you've never met who don't want you to hurt yourself. I know I certainly don't. So go hug a kitten, pet a puppy, give someone flowers, tell a joke, be happy. Because you will never, ever be alone.

The US did this again when the Indonesian Quake struck, and they may well be doing this again with Japan.
As one US Admiral pointed out when the French sarcastically asked what we were going to do by sending a carrier group there (paraphrased):
French Admiral: What are you going to do with an aircraft carrier? Bomb it?
Response: Our aircraft carriers generate enough power to provide electricity for 3,000 homes without affecting operations, have a fully equipped medical facility capable of emergency treatment, water purification facilities, the resources to airlift food and supplies and we have eleven of them. How many does France have?
Humanity's various effort to communicate with aliens, from the information stuck on space probes to the various messages beamed into space, probably counts as this since a lot of the time the intent is simply to let anyone out there know that we exist. In the words of the Russian scientist Alexander Zaitsev regarding the rationale behind METI (Messaging to Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence):
"The science known as SETI deals with searching for messages from aliens. METI science deals with the creation of messages to aliens... In contrast to Active SETI, METI pursues not a local and lucrative impulse, but a more global and unselfish one – to overcome the Great Silence in the Universe, bringing to our extraterrestrial neighbors the long-expected annunciation “You are not alone!”"
Also: We already have a handful of space signals that we can't identify, the most famous being the "Wow!" signal. It's been verified that the signal could not have come from a satellite or anywhere on Earth. If it's extraterrestrial, it shows that we are not alone in our desire to find others like us out there. The aliens want to make friends too.
And from the United Nations, I quote: "All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood."

Death: You have to start out learning to believe the little lies.
Susan "So we can believe the big ones?"
Death: Yes. Justice. Duty. Mercy. That sort of thing.
Susan "They're not the same at all!"
Death: Really? Then take the universe and grind it down to the finest powder and sieve it through the finest sieve and then show me one atom of justice, one molecule of mercy. And yet you act, like there was some sort of rightness in the universe by which it may be judged.
Susan "Yes. But people have got to believe that or what's the point?"
Death: You need to believe in things that aren't true; how else can they become?

"You know, there's one thing you Freelancers always seem to forget. And that's the fact that we've managed to kick your ass time and time again. Oh sure, you've got all your smart plans, and your fancy technology, and your advanced training, but, in the end, what has that gotcha? Without a team you can count on and your fellow soldier by your side, all that doesn't really amount to squat, now does it?" -Red VS Blue
