Author has written 52 stories for Bleach, Harry Potter, Misc. Books, and Avengers.
In case you're interested, my name (Sariniste) is pronounced sah-ree-NISS-teh. Sari (SAH-ree) for short. ;)
I would like to thank the talented Sophia E, my beta and writing partner. Many of the stories under this profile contain her creative work or are collaborations between the two of us, and her ideas and contributions have greatly improved my writing.
Hello, I'm Sari! Welcome to my site and I hope you enjoy my stories! Unlike many fanfic writers, I complete most of my works.
I am always looking for constructive criticism and suggestions for improvement. But I also enjoy hearing from people who just want to let me know they like my stories by leaving a short review. I love reviews of any length, positive or negative, so please do leave me comments on my chapters. There is no such thing as too many reviews, too short a review, or too long a review. I respond to all signed reviews, usually within 48 hours.
I have a fondness for the conflict and challenge inherent in villain/protagonist or villain/heroine pairings, although I also write other genres. I mostly write Bleach fanfiction (although I have written for a couple other fandoms, e.g. Harry Potter with my stories Ensnarement and Players of Fate). My stories include adventure, humor and drama, romance light and dark, all ratings, yaoi and het, canon and AU. I like to experiment with different styles and moods, so my fanfics span a wide range of topics and styles, often AU, but with no major OCs. I always post warnings for M-rated content, OOCness, or fluff, so please do check the summary before reading a chapter to make sure it's to your taste. I also list all main pairings either in the character dropdowns or in the summary or author's note at the beginning of each chapter.
I'm proud to have been named the winner of the *Fifth Annual FLOL Tanabata Contest, Fanfiction Category* for my story Princess of Ashes.
I am in the process of editing any of my stories that have even a hint of what might be considered MA-rated content (even though I've always tried to stay on the M side, I'm unsure of exactly where the dividing line is). To be safe, I may go a bit overboard, so please let me know if you spot any inconsistencies or discontinuities. I promise to keep the uncensored versions in their entirety and post them elsewhere.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“Best Bleach fanfic I have ever read.” –PurebloodPrincess09
“Most interesting … and… well written story I've read on fanfiction.net.” –EternalNight435
“This is my first review for a story on this site or on any site of the World Wide Web… I think that your writing is very smooth and natural. You also know very well how to tell a story: the characters are deep and interesting the way you portray and characterize them. And even though I am not very familiar with nor usually curious about the world of Bleach, I find myself wanting to know more about the vivid universe you weave.” –Skin Grafting
“Everybody is so delightfully in character yet at the same time you weave and develop them in such a way that they become your own... The plot is multi-tiered... There is no 'filler'. Each chapter is significant and makes contribution to the plot as a whole. Relatively unimportant parts of the story, such as the calligraphy, suddenly become essential knowledge later in the story... I was kept thoroughly interested and cared about the characters.” –wingsofseyfert12
About The Challenge:
“[I] enjoy this story, over all other bleach fanfiction.” –essexgurl818
“Best Aizen/Orihime fic there is.” –Princess Teska
“You're so deep in love with the story at the end that you wish for the darkness to win.” –ChocolatyLeia
“Without a doubt one of the most exciting stories I have read on this site.” –PLacIDwiCkedNEss
“I was too engrossed in the story to [review]... It had me entranced...You kept all your characters IN character ... I have to commend you on your portrayal of the Aizen we all know and love. He remained the bastard we know him to be ... despite the subtle romances in this fic.” –LuvleeCookieChan
About Love Me Bitterly, Loathe Me Sweetly:
"I've been reading your story for days, and now that I've finished it all, I thought you ought to know, even if you've already been told a thousand times, that this is a beautiful story, even outside of its fanfiction elements... [Y]ou managed to pull off a difficult pairing without making it cliched, and how you developed the characters and the story was brilliant... [E]verything seemed so seamless and well-written (even the twists were surprising). It's one of the few stories that have really touched me and I will probably reread it many times in the future... And... I LOVE your version of Ichigo. You write him like you made him. Every time you take his POV, it's like I feel what he's feeling." –Child of the Ashes
“Wonderful style of writing! Everything flows so nicely.” –fallenxangelxproductions
“You have an amazing talent in writing. I hope your dream to become a writer comes true :) I will support you all the way and buy your books” –Aizen2650

WHERE TO START READING MY BLEACH FANFICTION
My most popular adventure story is my novel Illusion.
If you like my writing style and want to try my novels, here is a list and short description of my eight major completed multi-chapter fanfics (Five of them are AU and can probably be read on their own even if you don't know Bleach very well, although the enjoyment of the story will be enhanced by a knowledge of the manga due to all the references I slip in). Several of these were joint writing projects with Sophia E. Other stories and shorter works are listed below the line, by pairing.
Illusion - An adventure novel set in the canon universe with a few small changes. Includes slow-building relationship between Aizen and Ichigo, rated T. Not a romance although it includes romantic elements.
The Challenge - Dark romance between Aizen and Orihime, set in the canon universe with some changes. Rated M but stays within FFnet guidelines. Uncensored MA version will be posted on my private site.
Love Me Bitterly, Loathe Me Sweetly - Part I of my Triangle trilogy. AU. AiHime. Adventure/drama. The stories in the Triangle trilogy all take place in the real world, so there are no shinigami or supernatural elements. Not in the canon storyline.
Triangle of Immortality - Part II of Triangle trilogy. AU. IchiHime. Adventure/sci fi. My first novel on this site.
Escape - Part III of Triangle trilogy. AU. IchiHime. Adventure/drama/sci fi.
