Author has written 6 stories for Prince of Tennis, Inuyasha, Young Justice, Kuroko no Basuke/黒子のバスケ, and Ouran High School Host Club.
My name: My friends call me Mycroft because of our addiction to Sherlock, so that or Just Wait and See is good.
Other links: still have no idea what I'm doing, but http://Iwillwaitandsee.tumblr.com/
Where I live: Somewhere between California and New York.
Likes: My friends, my team, video games, books, music, and other stuff.
Dislikes: You know those people who you think are your friends, but completely ignore you in conversation, never invite you over or to hang out, and just don't include you in anything. Yeah well those people. I also don't like bigots, hypocrites, people who don't stand up for themselves (Cinderella stories were never my thing), and girls that give up their dreams because they think their in love.
Hates: BAD GRAMMER (It bugs me. If you just read over your story at least once you can find so many errors) and people who ignore spell check (it was made for a reason).
Movies: A bunch, but How to Train Your Dragon is my favorite.
Books: Way too many to say.
TV shows: Supernatural, Vampire Diaries, Suits, and Bones, I dabble in NCIS, House, and Law and Order:SUV
Manga/Anime: Psyren, Bleach, Naruto, 1/2 Prince, Prince of Tennis, The New Prince of Tennis, Iris Zero (on hold while the author is in the hospital), Katekyo Hitman:Reborn, Skip Beat, Inuyasha, Ouran High School Host Club, Regatta, Chronos Deep, Aphorism, Kuroko no Basket
Music: Again way too much, but pretty much anything from Mozart to Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

Go to practice
Do mass amount of homework
The 16 ways to use commas because I'm getting tired of people with grammar issues. My English teacher gave us this worksheet, so if you have any complaints about it I did not make it and I know that it is completly right.
1. To separate items in a list (three or more words, phrases, or clauses in a series)
Note #1: Some writers today omit the last comma before the “and.” This comma is called the serial, Oxford, or Harvard comma, and you should not omit it.
Note #2: No commas are necessary when all of the items are connected by conjunctions.
NO COMMA: Celia has a boa constrictor and an iguana and a chameleon.
2. To separate the two halves of a compound sentence* when they are joined by a coordinating conjunction*
A compound sentence is composed of at least two independent clauses.
A coordinating conjunction is a part of speech that connects two words, sentences, phrases or clauses together. You can remember them using the acronym FANBOYS: for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so.
Note: Short independent clauses connected by a conjunction require no comma.
NO COMMA: I like you and you like me.
3. To separate coordinate adjectives that precede a noun
Note #1: Test your sentence. Can and be inserted between the adjectives? Can you reverse the adjectives and maintain the meaning? If the sentence still sounds right, then put in a comma.
NO COMMA (you would not put in a comma because it fails the above test): We stayed at an expensive summer resort.
Note #2: It is incorrect to place a comma after the final adjective!
4. To set off an introductory dependent clause*
A dependent clause is a group of words that has both a subject and a verb but, unlike an independent clause, cannot stand alone as a sentence (also known as a subordinate clause).
Note: Do not place a comma after the main clause when a dependent clause follows it.
The cat scratched at my door while I was sleeping."I still need the camera because it is the only reason anyone is talking to me." (Annie Leibovitz)
5. To separate a series of three prepositional phrases at the beginning of the sentence (look for THREE or more prepositional phrases in a row and then place the comma at the end of the entire group of phrases – otherwise, no comma is necessary)
Note: Do not use a comma if the phrase is immediately followed by a verb.
NO COMMA: In my living room on the mantel between the two candlesticks sat an unusual figurine.
6. To set off a nonessential* appositive* phrase
nonessential = may be removed from a sentence without changing the meaning of that sentence
appositive = a noun or noun phrase that explains or identifies another noun right beside it
Note: Essential appositives are not set off with commas.
NO COMMA: The playwright Arthur Miller died last year. (Do you see that this information -- the name -- is essential to the meaning of the sentence?)
7. To set off a nonessential* dependent clause*
nonessential = may be removed from a sentence without changing the meaning of that sentence
dependent clause = a group of words that contains a subject and verb but does not express a complete thought and cannot stand alone as a sentence (also known as a subordinate clause)
Note #1: Examples of other essential elements (no commas):
The writer who has made the greatest impression on me is Ernest Hemingway.
The baby wearing a yellow jumpsuit is my niece.
Note #2: Do not use commas to set off essential elements of the sentence, such as clauses beginning with that (relative clauses). That clauses after nouns are always essential. That clauses following a verb expressing mental action are always essential.
The book that I borrowed from you is excellent.
They wished that warm weather would finally arrive.
8. To set off interjections, parenthetical words and expressions, and conjunctive adverbs*
Interjections are words or phrases used to exclaim or protest or command, such as: oh, well, alas, gosh, yes, no, etc.
Such as: of course, on the other hand, for example, by the way, in fact, for instance, after all, etc. Note: A contrasting expression introduced by “not” is parenthetic.
Such as: however, therefore, thus, also, consequently, finally, moreover, hence, etc.
9. To set off a word or name of direct address (when you are speaking to someone)
Note: Be sure, however, that the name is that of someone to whom you are actually speaking!
NO COMMA: I told Juanita I couldn't be more surprised.
10. To set off quoted dialogue from the rest of the sentence
Note: A partial quotation does not require a comma.
NO COMMA: According to the newspaper, the astronaut was “clever but irresponsible.”
11. Dates: to separate the day of the week from the month and the day of the month from the year
Note: Do not use commas if only the month and day or only the month and year are given, such as: November 20 or October 1987.
12. Addresses: to separate the street from the city and the city from the state
13. To separate titles from last names
14. To separate tag questions
15. To separate the salutation of a letter and to separate the closing of a letter
16. To set off the parts of a reference that direct the reader to the exact source
(This is important for your English essays!)
Note: You do not need a comma in the following sentence: Our English teacher wants us to read through Act Two of Our Town.
Note: As you write, if you do not see any of these rules that pertain to your sentence, then do not use a comma. No rule = no comma!
Formula to a crappy Naruto Story, by Silent Master
Step One: Naruto is being chased by an angry mob even though he's only three years old (barly old enough to wipe his own ass) and living alone for some reason.
Step Two: He trips and/or reaches a dead end (oh noooo's) and they procede to inflict grevous, crippling, and all around over exaggerated unsurvivable wounds.
Step Three: After ten minutes of stabbing and beating (Which miraculously avoided his vitals) someone comes in to inflict the the final blows at the crowds jeering.
Step Four: In a 'thrilling' and 'suspenseful' moment a giant war-hammer is swung down on Naruto, only to be stopped an inch from his head by token superhero #25.
Step Five: Token superhero #25 yells at crowd. "WHAT ARE DO DOING TO TO THIS POOR BOY?!," crowd replies. "KILLING THE DEMON!" or the like. Slaughter ensues.
Step Six: Sarutobi and an Anbu squad show up. (perfect timing) Hokage confronts token superhero #25. "WHO ARE YOU?!" hero responds. "I'm super awesome-man! (Relation to Naruto's parents optional) Now why are your villagers attacking this poor boy?"
Step Seven: The Hokage proceeds to break his own law and tells to complete strangers Narutos life story, much to their outrage.
Step Eight: Token superhero #25 says he's taking the boy away to train him. Sarutobi agrees immendiatly without aguement, but pleads for them to return for the Genins exams. #25 agrees. (The fact that he agreed to bring the kid back to a place that delivered a massive beating to a three year old didn't seem to bother him.)
Step Nine: Naruto wakes up after the ten minute conversation completely healed, energetic, and with enough brain damage to forgive the entire ordeal. (Apparently he's Jesus, filled with infinate forgiveness for the unforgivable)
Step Ten: They fill Naruto in on the details and he begs to be able to come back to be Hokage. (a three year old can comprehend that...how?) and the duo is off.
Step Eleven: Time skip. Naruto returns, covered in trench coats and pictures of foxes. (throwing all stigmas to the wind).
Step Twelve: Meets Hokage and dishes out all his skills in painful detail. (Throwing all ninja sense to the wind.) Assigned to go to the academy, which happens to be having its exam that day.
Step Thirteen: Shows off dramarically for the test and remainder of story, pwning everyone but Orochimaru in the Forest of death.
Step Foreteen: Falls in love with Hinata?!
Props to Silent Master for his well thought out and reasoned rant (claps).
8/12/12: Done with the PoT fandom and I will no longer respond to anyone who messages me why.
10/29/12: Still done with PoT. Obsessed with Jason Todd and White Collar. Thinking about some short stories for both once I'm done with Stuck in Between.
12/11/12: Midterms are next week and then winter break, so I promise I will work on Stuck In Between over the break. Only two to three chapters left, so I hope I can finish over the break, but I'll probably let you guys suffer longer than that.
4/11/13: Started the last chapter of Stuck in Between. My god, my best friend was like hasn't it almost been a year, so I looked at the dates. It's seriously 1 year minus two weeks since I became obsessed enough with Jason Todd to write this story. I hope I did him proud.
(Ideas being posted are for public eyes, so I please would like to ask that if you are going to take ideas then tell me, so I can also read them and to add your own creativity):
Fandom: Batman Comics/Red Hood and the Outlaws
Summary: Pre-series RHATO-Ducra said the day Jason let go of his vengeance would be glorious. Jason never thought it would happen. When the Bat-boys follow him to All-Caste after his returning battle in Gotham though, who knows? No one can live on vengeance, but can Jason live without his? Jason love, Ducra wisdom, Bruce becoming an actual father, Tim being the only rational one (like always), Dick being Dick, and Damian being respectful... Respectful?
Fandom: Once Upon a Time
Summary: So Neal distrusted the Blue Fairy, it was a small change, but it affected everything. Now, everything has changes, but one thing is for certain: Magic always comes at a price. Emma-Centric, Past Emma/Graham, CaptainSwan, Charming Family, and Neal as an insightful bartender, who doesn't want that?
Fandom: Katekyo Hitman Reborn
Status: To begin writing after Stuck in Between
Summary: Byakuran always like to experiment with his parallel worlds, but who knew a change of gender would effect so much. Xanxus refuses to bow down to the trash the CEDEF leader found to replace his daughter as heir, so he takes matters into his own hands. FemTsuna, TeacherVaria, and lots of pairings that will be revealed later.
