Born in '84
I'm also a comic/manga book junkie, Magic the Gathering / misc. gaming tabletop player, anime otaku and avid cartoon watcher.
I'm now happily married and still very much in love. I think it helps me approach my romantic fics with greater confidence. When I first started writing, I had never even fallen truly in love (or even really dated).
I generally am a big fan of canon pairings. My biggest OTP is Ranma/Akane. Oddly, the only piece of writing where I couldn't get into any of the canon pairings was the entire Harry Potter series. I just don't feel the chemistry or intellectual connection.
WARNING: I'm a very, very slow writer. I'm also a parent of a toddler and kindergartner, so free time hardly exists. I do as much as I can and it's slowly getting better.

Current Story Status:
The Continuing Saga - - It can be considered complete, but I do have some rough outlines for two more story arcs. Maybe I'll write them someday.
Of Loss, Life, and Love - - Labeled complete, but I have an epilogue in-progress. I also have some spin off one-shots that are in very rough draft forms that can be considered sequels.
Book of Thoughts - - On the backburner, but almost the entire story (25 chapters) are written out in draft form. If only I could find the 3.5" disk with the text files on it...
Notes about my interpretation of the Ranma 1/2 Universe:
Doctor Tofu is a real doctor and a chiropractor?! In strict manga canon, Tofu is only shown to practice first aid, chiropractic and folk/alternative medicine. He treats Ranma's bruise after Akane nails him (accidentally) with a baseball, treats Akane’s twisted ankle, and has patched Akane up after a fight (when she was younger). In the anime “Akane Goes to the Hospital”, Akane breaks her leg and Tofu puts her in a cast. In the US and in Japan, only medical doctors are allowed to do that. So, I choose to believe that he is a medical doctor as well. Although manga canon does not show this, but it doesn’t prohibit this, either.
The Problem With Chocolate -- Ranma 1/2. Ranma/Akane pairing. Post Maga. Future Fic in the same universe/sequel to my "Of Loss, Life, & Love". Valetine's Day mayhem. Akane in the kitchen with chocolate. We're all doomed...or are we? Comedy/Romance
Journal Journey -- Ranma 1/2. Ranma/Akane pairing. Post Manga. "Akane initiates a challenge of a very different sort. Will the pen prove mightier than the sword (or mallet)? A journey in communication and maturity." Romance (NOT part of of LLL universe)
Bottled Lesson -- Ranma 1/2. Ranma/Akane pairing. Post Manga. "To teach Ranma and Akane a lesson, Happosai traps them both in a magical box he had stolen from the Amazons – an ancient device used to train and weed out the weak. Can Ranma and Akane learn to get along in order to survive?" (NOT part of of LLL universe). Adventure/Romance/Hurt-Comfort
