Hello there, and welcome to my Profile!
Things about me:
I'm a 22-year-old female, whose name is Ashley. Anyone who knows I'm a fan of Tales of the Abyss might find it funny to know that on more than one occasion I've accidentally spelled my name as 'Aschley'.
Important update! I will be starting college in September, and moving to a different city in August so I can attend said college, so my less than frequent updates will likely become even less frequent, because I will be preparing for that. Sorry in advance.
I won't lie and say I promise to update my stories constantly, it gets less likely when no one shows interest in my work. Of course my motivation to write on that subject and how much I have going on in my life is a big part of it too. I'm sure most of the other authors on this site understand what I'm talking about. We only have so much time, and sometimes fanfiction can't be as high on the priority list as we might want it to be.
But even if I haven't updated a story in months, I refuse to be one of those irritating authors that complain about not getting as many reviews as they wanted on a chapter or actually hold their story hostage for reviews. You all know the ones I'm talking about, the ones that say things like "I won't update until I get ten reviews on this chapter!" They annoy the hell out of me (and to be honest, make me not want to review and stop reading their story immediately even if it is decent).
On the subject of reviews, I try to review as often as possible when I'm reading a story I enjoy. Though I admit I'm not the best at reviewing, I do try to say SOMETHING. I'm actually better at giving reviews when there's some things I can add constructive criticisms for, however thanks to some authors who have taken anything I've said the wrong way or just don't know how to be told anything other than their work is perfect, and have called me a bully or whatever for offering my opinion, I don't tend to review as much anymore.
(Actually, I've found that the reviewers for my fic that give the lengthier reviews, I can actually reply to with more than 'Thanks!', and usually the conversations that start from there tend to lead to good friendships on here and other sites like deviantart.
Since everyone else seems to be doing it:
Books: Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Blood Red Road, Lovely Bones, Lord of the Rings, To Kill a Mockingbird, Speak, Fangirl, too many others to list.
Anime/Mangas: FMA:Brotherhood, Ouran High School Host Club, Bleach, Naruto, Pokemon, Deathnote...too many to list.
Games: Tales of the Abyss/Symphonia/Vesperia/Graces/Xillia, Pokemon, Harvest Moon, Devil Survivor, and more.
Pairings: Anything that's not GuyxNatalia, basically. xD Or anything that isn't some weird HermionexAny of her teachers/someone way older than her/doesn't make any sense. I also don't care for male on male, female on female stories, though that's just personal preference and not an opinion on anything. (In case someone takes this the wrong way, I fully support the notion that two men or two women should be allowed to marry. Why should a straight couple that hates each other have more right to marry than two men who love and support each other?)
Stories on here that I love and totally think you should read:
1) Dreaming of Sunshine, by Silverqueen.
2) Tales of Cosplayers, by Nightfoot. (Canon material: Tales of Symphonia)
3) Cauterize, by Lady Altair. (Canon material: Harry Potter)
Stories I'm working on right now (In order of priority during the moment I'm typing this):
1) Not What it Seems (Tales of the Abyss, OC insert, changes in game plot (mostly later on))
2) Identical (Harry Potter, OC insert, based around Fred and George Weasley, starts in their first year)
3) Titles (Series of drabbles based on the titles each ToTA character gets during the game. No OCs.)

Cover for the fic:
Fanart For 'Not What it Seems' (previously known as Of Love and War)! :D If you ever want to draw my characters, please go ahead! You don't need to ask permission, but I do ask that you credit me for my characters and send me a link so I can see!
(I can't even begin to say how amazing it is that people cosplayed my characters.)
Thanks to them all! :D They're all great!

I like to think I'm a friendly person, so feel free to message me if you feel like it, or even if you have a question or would like someone's opinion on something you're working on. :) I love talking to people here and on dA.
