Author has written 16 stories for Ranma, Tenchi Muyo, Harry Potter, Ashes to Ashes, and Teen Wolf.
Hi! I am Kirinin, and I have been writing fanfiction for over a decade. (What? A decade. How is this possible?) I write in both the Ranma 1/2 fanfiction universe and the Harry Potter one. Between the gender-changing martial artist main character, the odd fighting techniques, and the colourful cast of supporting characters, there's plenty of fun things to play with in Ranma. The fact that the manga went on for over 30 volumes and that there are plenty of plotlines to mess with doesn't hurt... Of course, if you aren't aware of what Harry Potter is, on what isolated tropical island are you living, and can I join you there?
My latest fandoms are Teen Wolf (yes, yes, ohgod, I KNOW) and Sherlock.
NEW NEWS! -
'Secret of Slytherin' and 'Geas of Gryffindor' are now up to date on AO3. If you've only ever read it here, I highly recommend you check it out. The timeline is fixed up, and there are a lot of spot changes that I think fans of the story will find interesting - think 'the view of a writer editing something written almost a decade ago'. This also means you can easily download SoS in its entirety in html, ebook, and pdf format, so you can read it on all your many devices.
And I have to thank everyone who made this story one of their favorites. The hit count on ff-dot-net surpassed a million earlier this year, which still blows my mind. The story is at Potions and Snitches and now at archive of our own, but you guys were the first to encourage me, correct my mistakes, and get rabidly excited about the plot twists. I'm forever grateful.
'The Pit' is finally finished. I poked and prodded at the ending until it bled, guys, but posting the second-to-last chapter and reading the reviews gave me hope and ideas for an ending that satisfies me (and hopefully you!) more. Remember, if you're waiting on someone to update, the solution is usually reviews. ;)
My fiction is also on:
.Older fics (HM and earlier) appear on my angelfire account here.
Potions and Snitches:
A more polished version of SoS is on Potions and Snitches, where my username is the same as it is here. But if you go there, remember to come back here, because Geas of Gryffindor, its sequel, is here and on ao3 only. Speaking of which,
Archive of Our Own:
I cannot actually believe that ff-dot-net is this petty, but apparently they are. There was some kind of automated (I hope automated) thing that went through and deleted every URL that led to another site, then replaced that URL with one that leads directly back to this page. I mean, I guess I shouldn't look to a fanfiction site to be mature, but are you guys seriously serious? Wow.
Okay, so the website is www-dot-archive-of-our-own-dot-org, and my username is Kirinin there as well; you can find me there by searching for my username. Below is what was originally posted here:
AO3 has a gorgeous layout and the option to make transformative works (that's fanfiction to you and me) into ebooks and pdfs with one easy click. It's where I first posted echo in the echoing wood. Secret of Slytherin is there as well, with yet more bugs fixed and a few plot holes stitched together with fresh, shiny thread. Geas of Gryffindor is there now, too, in its entirety. Some of Geas of Gryffindor is a lot prettier there, especially the epistolary bits. (Wait, epistolary, you say? HAHA that hasn't been posted in either spot, yet. But soon.) Now I've managed to post Eleven Days in the Life of Gene Hunt there as well.
While writing GoG, I have unearthed a desire to blog, mostly to show you the work on this one. Most of the research on 'The Pit' was internetty. For some reason, GoG has created artifacts: letters from one character to another, battle-plan-maps, layouts of Grimmauld Place, and tiny avatars representing the characters so I can move them and remember where they are, because there are sometimes twenty people in a bloody scene. But as aggravating as that can sound, it's been so much fun! If I started to really complain, it'd be for show. WRITING THE ACTUAL LETTERS WAS SO FUN, GUYS.
Happy Reading, Happy Writing, Everyone!
