Author has written 18 stories for Ranma, Tenchi Muyo, Harry Potter, Ashes to Ashes, Teen Wolf, and Stranger Things, 2016.
Hi! I am Kirinin, and I have been writing fanfiction for over a decade. (What? A decade. How is this possible?) I write primarily 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 Stranger Things.
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.
I've started posting 'Being Harry Potter' both here and on Archive of Our Own. It is, in fact, complete, so you can expect chapters to be uploaded at a reasonable speed. Sorry about the stall on Geas of Gryffindor, folks -- the muses are not always logical or kind.
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:
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, and Being Harry Potter.
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.
Being Harry Potter, the latest project, comes as a result of reading ridiculous Les Miserables bodyswap fanfiction. (Seriously.) Those of you who have been with me awhile know that one of my favorite things to do is take a familar trope and subvert/invert. Being Harry Potter is a subversion of the trope I haven't yet seen before, so I do hope you enjoy it.
Happy Reading, Happy Writing, Everyone!
