Author has written 8 stories for Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, and Naruto.
My name is Nitty Gritty, but some people call me NG. I have a few nicknames, so I'll just stick with my penname. I'm Canadian (a hopeless Leaf's fan as well...one day they will win. I just hope I'm alive to see it). I graduated from my graduate degree in May, and since then have been working and travelling a lot. I really love to sit down and write after a long day or even during my breaks.
I do follow quite a bit of anime and manga, but I predominately write for the Naruto fandom and mainly involving Sasuke and Naruto. I definitely pair these two together, not because I can't see them dating other people, I just find them to be a great fit for each other.
Having said that, I am a heterosexual female. There will be obvious flaws in my stories because a) I don't know what it's like to be queer nor have ever experienced any form of discrimination and b) I only know intimacy from a woman's side, so writing two male characters intimately is a huge challenge and one I don't think I will ever met because I am not male.
But there are things I do strive for within my stories (and I hope I am successful). I don't believe in black and white characters; there is too much grey area for those types of characters to survive in. I feel all authors needs to recognize that, because it would making 'character bashing' non-existent. Which it should be. There is no reason to ever bash a character, and it says a lot about the author's maturity.
You can find me on AO3 where I have all my explicit content listed. Username there is Syco. Unfortunately FF seems to be uncooperative in lettiing me hyperlink a text to my page on archive so here is the long form (thank you to a reader who PM'd me about it! Didn't even notice).

Beat the Odds: There is 7 chapters left (23 in total). This story is supposed to focus on the distance - it's the point of the story. People who review and comment about how the story should have the two characters together more often are missing the point to the story. This is a hard one for me to pick back up, it had some parallels to my personal life. Near the end of my relationship with my ex-boyfriend, we were in a long distance relationship and it ended sourly. It hits home and although I am over the split, it's a bit difficult to pick up this story and present it the way I intended it to be. But it's 7 more chapters, and it will be done...eventually. This story is not my priority.
Craving a Forever Future: I need to change the title to this one very badly. The updated chapter 1 - it's on AO3. I need to edit it (massively) but that's the direction I am taking this story and once I finish the prequel I will work on updating these chapters on FFnet. This is supposed to be 9 or 10 chapters long, and it currently only has 1 complete chapter (what is posted here is not correct and will be changed). This is also not my priority.
Behind the Fall: This IS my priority. It's the prequel/background to Craving a Forever Future (which will be re-named!) and only on Ao3 for the reason of it being stupidly long. It has almost 16,000 words for the very first chapter and it only gets progressively longer. It's split into three chapters and I'm on the second one. I am forever thankful I've been working on this story via google docs because I had my computer wiped a few months ago and I would curl up and cry if I had to re-establish all my timelines for these stories.
Once you See him: Will be getting Naruto's perspective. Woo. I just haven't started it yet haha.
Medacity: Also not my priority even though it's brand new story I'm working on. I'm actually a little afraid to update it for the fact that I think I"m overlapping too much of my Craving ideas onto it and I want them to be completely unrelated plot wise. So the update rate will be slow but I'm writing this when I get bored of Before the Fall
