Holy crap! I haven't updated this thing since 2012. (Still under major editing, especially to the newly added parts. I just have no time.)
Well, I've decided to update some things since I'm back where I started. However,I'm gonna leave some of my original thoughts because A) I still believe in some of them and B) Who doesn't love second-hand embarrassment from their younger self? Ha ha...ha... Major editing though because I have a better understanding of some things. Also, I hold grudges on fictional characters...
Still in the Naruto fandom because I never grow up, I'm a sucker for nostalgia, and I found some really good stories. Plus I went through my favorites (bad idea unless you can stay home eating ice-cream, thinking of what could have been, and cursing an almost 3 year old event). Huge thanks to Nameless-Anonymous-Author for dedicating a story for me! The NejiTen fan in me has reignited! But mostly, I had forgotten how awesome Tenten was...AND HOW LITTLE SHE'S BEEN APPRECIATED! *clears throat* Anyways, I'm back in this crazy, angst-filled fandom. For better or for worse...we'll see how it goes.
The Hunger Games...I suppose I respect that, but I haven't had a fight about the series in forever.
Maximum Ride...well, James Patterson is dead to me, so you can guess how that went.
(2012 Me possibly younger because I was here even before Neji) Hi! So I'm guessing you've accidentally clicked this...and that you aren't gonna bother to read anything...But in case you do, My name's Aly...well at least my nickname. I like stories about Naruto, Maximum Ride, and the Hunger Games!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't support OCs though :/ Welcome to my page...beware of random stuff
Couples I support:
Neji and Tenten Opposites attract!!!! (And also I can't think of anyone better for Neji or Tenten...) (*SPOILER ALERT for chapter 614* As most of you know, Neji has died (Fudge you Kishi, fudge you) BUT I don't care!!!! He's still alive in fanfiction and also, I am in denial...)(10/15 Still working through it. The knife is still in my chest but I find that I only sob in private now. Yay...)
Shikamaru and Temari (Shikamaru needs someone to keep him in place...just like his dad. Plus they already act like a married couple and also their Japanese voice actors made a song together called "Voice for You"!!!!!!!!!!! :DDDDD And if you've watched Shippuden you can see they've grown close...*winkwink*) (10/15 WHAT DID I SAY?!?!?!??!?!?! Ok look, I lost more than half of the pairings I was rooting for. This was never really my OTP but it was in the tope 3 damn it. LET ME CELEBRATE! Although, his kid...I mean...I had higher hopes. I suppose beggars can't be choosers...)
Naruto and Hinata I really hope this couple pulls through!!!!!!!! SAKURA DOESN'T DESERVE A GUY LIKE NARUTO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (10/15 Still true. AND IT FUCKING HAPPENED. The children though...*takes deep breath* I just have to remind myself that what's done is done...BUT THEY COULD'VE GOTTEN MORE CREATIVE WITH THE FUCKING NAMES, THAT GOES FOR ALL OF THEM)
Choji and Ino ( I think this has a good chance of happening :)) (10/15 *sobbing* See, I know they had to keep the Ino-Shika-Cho, but...I really like the idea of them. Choji is sweet, he's treat a girl right. And I have no idea where he met Karui...I just...it's hard to accept stuff. this is why fanfiction exists)
Konohamaru and Hanabi I'm not sure if this is a cannon pairing or not but I think they'd be cute together :) (10/15 again with me picking the ONLY CHARACTERS that get like 1 episode. I just want to be happy...)
Konan and Nagato/Pein *SPOILER ALERT* I love this couple...it's too bad they both die *sob* (10/15 :T)
Itachi and Hana Inuzuka Not sure if it's cannon I mean there's really no evidence but think about it: they're about the same age so they might've gone to school together. (10/15 Holy fuck, I still love them. I know it was always crack, but I hoped and dreamed. HOPED AND DREAMED)
Max and Fang OR Max and Dylan: Yes people, I support both of them because Dylan's perfect and Fang left even though he came back >:) (10/15 Fuck you Patterson)
Katniss and Gale: I actually always thought if Gale hadn't left, they would've ended up together... *SPOILER ALERT* If there wasn't a possibility that the bomb that killed Prim was made by Gale, he would've stuck around :( (10/15 no further comment on this)
Naruto crack pairings I think are interesting
Sasuke and Tenten (Sasuke does have similarities to Neji...) (10/15 Bruh... links below)
Kiba and Tenten (My two favorites!!!!!!) (10/15 Still love Kiba. Still worship Tenten)
Shikamaru and Tenten (I read a ShikaTen story...not bad :)) (10/15 I remember! It's kinda neutral for me though)
Kiba and Ino (Weird couple but I've read a few stories with it :)) (10/15 I would've taken it)
Really almost anything with Tenten because she's awesome. (10/15 I want to explain (or try to) why I love Tenten so much. Maybe it's because I'm weird, I did pick her out of all these main characters (I could've picked anyone but no, I go with the one "main" character with 15 minutes of screen time FOR YEARS). I have a tendency to do that, I mean, I love Hana Inuzuka and half the fandom barely knows who she is (she got what? 5 minutes?). But, I feel that she's a perfect character for any situation: she's a stubborn feminist with a huge soft spot for her eccentric, work-obssed teammates, and frankly, I doubt anyone can be on Team Gai without handling it like she did. Plus, all these great fanfics just encouraged me more. So yes, I love Hinata, Temari, and even Ino, Tenten will always be my favorite.)
Sasuke and Karin People hate this couple because they say Karin's too much of a fan girl and Sakura's better, yet in "Naruto" Sakura is Sasuke's biggest fan girl!!!!!!!!!!! In Naruto Shippuden Sakura got stronger, but she's still emotionally weak. Basically Karin and Sakura are the same except Karin doesn't cry in every other episode. Also I like this couple better because I don't really like Sakura anyways and because right now Karin has more of a chance of getting Sasuke...well in my opinion anyways. Even though he tried to kill BOTH Sakura AND Karin, I think Sasuke would choose Karin :P (10/15 Dreams crushed. Oh well. At least their kid is named Salad)
Naruto couples that I don't support but don't hate
Sakura and Sasuke I think that they should die alone but I can stomach it...mostly...ok not THAT much...aw to heck with it! I hate Sakura too much :P (10/15 Never really got over the hate. Also, watching her go back to him is like watching a couple of domestic violence. Whatever, fanfiction is life).
Shikamaru and Ino I don't hate this couple but I like Shikamaru with Temari and I've never seen Ino and Shikamaru act like a couple...:/ (No longer need to worry about that *angels sing*)
Kiba and Hinata I think Hinata's likes Naruto too much to be with him...although Kiba is one of my favorite characters and who knows it may happen :) (10/15 I was ok with it. ESPECIALLY SINCE NARUTO TOOK SO DAMN LONG! But shit happens. I'm ok with the turn out...for Hinata anyways)
Kinds Couples I just hate!!!!!!
Any couple that includes Sakura. (10/15 hatred still there. Less aggressive but eh.)
Yaoi and Yuri- This grosses me out but I can take small hints. Very small hints. (10/15 I am ok with this. I mean, in the Naruto fandom, there weren't really any Yaoi or Yuri couples that I found, but to each their own).
Incest- EEEEWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!! It's like Neji and Hinata or Temari and Gaara X_X (10/15 Still stands)
(10/15- And now, some comments on fandoms I've found since then:
Big Hero 6- From the beginning I knew the movie was going to end in heartbreak. I saw the trailer and I saw comments on tumblr and knew this was not gonna end well. What I did not expect was how much I have grown to love Tadashi. Animated movies have always had the ability to make me cry, but this was something else. I sobbed (loudly and in public) about Tadashi. When I went home, the movie stuck with me; I felt like there should be more. And then I realized, I'm not the only one who feels this way. So here I came, to fanfiction.net. Now, if you know me at all (or read any of the above) I am a fangirl. More importantly, if two people stand anywhere near each other, I have thoughts and dreams about what could happen if they became a couple. I thought that I'd grow out of it by now, but I am forever a romantic. And so, I found myself cheering for Tomadashi. I loved Gogo from the first time I saw her: she was cool, she loved purple, gum and she was stubborn. I loved that! Tadashi was close with all his friends, but somehow, I firmly believed he and Gogo would click the most. Same with Fred and Honey Lemon. I don't have a clear reason, I don't even have proof, but I love them dearly. I've drifted a bit from BH6 but I am still reading a few stories.
(10/2015) I'd like to have some links to stories and authors that have A) brought me joy, B) made me depressed for more than 3 days, C) made me relove a fandom/character D) all of the above. No particular order. But I recommend all of them!
Naruto- this was one of my first fandoms ever. I started watching Naruto way back when I was 8 (around 2005) but only turned to fanfiction in 2011. I found myself going more towards fanfiction than the original and ever since it "ended" I found myself empty. In December 2012, one of my favorite characters died, completely ruining my dreams of my OTP being real. I ran back to find fanfiction, something that could tell me "everything's alright; he'll live on with us". Many fans were determined to be better, to continue his legacy the way it was supposed to go. But a lot of them quit; I was one of them. I felt my passion slip away. Every now and then, I'd read something,but it was not enough to bring it back. But I'm happy to say that in September 2015, I started to go through my favorites. And I am back.I make no promises to stay, a fandom is not a stable place and neither are my interests, but I have found many stories and authors that have made me happy to be a part of this mess.
Necromancer- I've read this twice in 3 days. I. Am. Not. Over. It. Fist off, I give anything with Tenten a shot. She is my favorite character (Search above for explanation). But this? I forgot how it made me feel. It's an AR and it does not even have my OTP, but I really loved it. I laughed, I cried, I was emotionally unstable...but it really was great. AND it's complete! No sequel but there really aren't enough praises I can give this fanfic.
Powerpuff Girls-Ok, this one is a weird choice of fandom. See, I got onto Netflix one day, and saw reruns. So for a month, I watched every episode I found. I forgot who empowering it was! Growing up, there were few superheroes that were female. Seeing these 3 little girls that had inspired me so much sent me into a pit of nostalgia. Then I started wondering about fanfiction. And there is one that stood out above the rest:
Misconceptions- This is an AR/AU of what could have happened if Mojo ever took control of the world. It's heart-felt, action-packed, and extremely long (147 chapters and 1 million words!). This story kept me up for days, and I started back when it was not even complete. The author is very concise when it comes to deadlines, so when she put in an author's note when the next chapter was to come out, she kept that, 9 out of 10 times. Even if she was late, it would not be by very many days. This story changed my life. It made me love the Rowdyruffs and it really blew me mind how detailed it was. Highly recommended and well-deserved praise.
Authors- there have been many authors that I've loved over the years. Some are no longer on this site (which is a shame), a few have moved on to other fandoms that I am not a part of (which is great because they're still sharing their writings), and there also ones that I have only recently discovered. Wherever they fit, these authors have changed my views,reignited my passions an/or they introduced me to fandoms I never even thought of.
Sandstorm3D- "Misconceptions" is the greatest PPG AUs I've ever read. I have also read her also PPG stories that have touched my soul. I hope to see more of her in a few years (she has commented that she will have a sequel to "Misconceptions" in 2017)! I sincerly wish her luck and am at the edge of my seat for what's to come!
V-chan2k6- "Necromancer" really helped bring me back into my the Naruto fandom. She wrote it back in 2006, but I only found it in 2013. I just recently reread it and was not disappointed. She started a few oneshots in the "Necromancer" universe, but I am not so sure she'll be updating them further. Still, I will always hold out hope.
A-V-Storm- "Summer Shudder" was one of the early Jelsa fanfictions I read. I was thrilled to find it and amazed to see the turn out. It left me wanting more. Storm later announced she was writing a seque, but as that progressed, Storm found that they were losing interest. I fully understand. I just from fandom to fandom, and sometimes, things don't always work out. Still, I will always have hope that Storm will return. In the meantime, Storm is still active(or at least they was in September) and I am pleased to see that she is testing her writing in Roya and still trying to find a place with Jelsa. I wish Storm luck!
maravelous- Mara was a member of the Naruto fandom, but I am not so sure about that anymore. When I discovered her, I was still in the midst of deciding OTPs and such. Through her work, I found NejiTen and ShikaTema were her favorites, and slowly, they became mine's as well. I never talked to her, but I felt a bond while reading her works, and seeing her art on deviantart (marawr). Like most of us in the NejiTen side, she too was crushed by the events of December, 2012. As of 2013, she has not updated on either site and have not heard anything from her since. I truly hope she's having a great life; she is an amazing author and a strong women. Good luck Mara!
ncfan- For 2 days, I found myself deep in the Naruto based writing of ncfan. Though only one shots, they really caught my attention. It was not a long streak (I am forever changing between fandoms and authors) but I feel she deserves this mention. She has written thousands of stories for many fandoms and I believe is still active (though her last story was published in July). I wish her luck!
Reinao Tanaka- Back in 2011, I found a couple. They were not popular, one was a background character and another was shipped with anyone and everyone,but they worked for me. When I searched for them on this site, I truly expected very little written about them, if anything at all. There was not much, but I did find a few stories that caught my attention and even made some part of my favorites. "Dance with the Devil" was a true masterpiece; it is still one of my favorite ItaHana sotries of all time. But what made me add Reinao to this commentary is the sequel "Let the World Crash". I became invested in that story, even begging Reinao to update the story many times. Sadly, it has been years. Still, it does nothing to my love for that fanfic. I am not an optimistic person but I truly hope that one day, Reinao will return to finish it.

to all of those who know.
POEM BY http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2398964/catapilla1
I am the girl that doesn't go to school dances, or games, and when I do go, I sit in a corner and read a book. I am the girl that people look through when I say something. I am the girl that spends most of her free time reading, writing, or doing other activities that most teenagers wouldn't call normal. I am the girl that people call weird and a freak either behind my back or to my face. I am the girl that doesn't spend all her time on Facebook, or talking to a girlfriend on a cell phone or regular phone. I am the girl that hasn't been asked out in a year. I am the girl that has stopped to smell the flowers and jump and splash in the rain. BUT I am also the girl who knows and is proud to be who she is, doesn’t care if people call her weird (it's a compliment), who loves reading and writing and doing the things that no one seems to have the time to do any more, who loves and is obsessed with many things, who can express herself better with words than actions, who doesn't need a guy to complete her, and knows the importance of the little things. Copy and paste this onto your account, and add your name to the list, if you are anything like me, so the girls who are different and unique can know in their weakest time that they are unique but not alone.: Iheartjake1220, FaerieRose13, Dancer4Life15,Marigold Winters, SparklingTopazEyes, chocoholic4eva, xXKatieCullenXx, XxKatieMarieCullenxX, Living for Today, Damon Salvatore's gal, Fax 4ever, Semi-GothicGirl777
At age 8, your dad buys you an ice cream. You thanked him by dripping
When you were 9 years old, he paid for piano lessons. You thanked him
When you were 10 years old he drove you all day, from soccer to
When you were 11 years old, he took you and your friends to
When you were 12 years old, he warned you not to watch
When you were 13, he suggested a haircut that was in fashion.
When you were 14, he paid for a month away at summer camp.
When you were 15, he came home from work, looking for a hug.
When you were 16, he taught you how to drive his car. You
When you were 17, he was expecting an important call. You thanked him
When you were 18, he cried at your high school graduation. You thanked
When you were 19, he paid for your college tuition, drove you to campus
When you were 25, he helped to pay for your wedding, and he told you
When you were 50, he fell ill and needed you to take care of him . You
And then, one day, he quietly died. And everything you never did came
POST THIS ON YOUR PROFILE IF THIS MADE YOU CRY OR SNIFFLE
if you are an animal lover do not read this it will make you cry just like it did to me
I snuffle and scurry
Around in a hurry
I search for a mouse
In this rundown old house
For the cat outside
Is in need of a guide
She sits on her hunches
And she waits for her family’s lunches
The kittens suckle her milk
But her fur is not like silk
For she is malnourished
And the kittens will not flourish
Abused and battered
At any noise they scatter
How do people let animals end up like this?
Help stop animal cruelty
Copy and paste this into your profile if you think animal cruelty is wrong
When I was born I was like any other kitten. I was fluffy, and my eyes were closed. People came. They commented on my beautiful coat, and when my eyes opened, they admired those too.
