Human trafficking is a huge, horrific problem in today's society, one that effects every single country in the world. Sadly, the Internet has caused the problem to explode. There are dangerous predators out there who can and will use the Internet--and sites like this one--to track down children, teenagers, and even adults to kidnap and exploit them. Don't think that it can't or won't happen to you or someone you know. Protect yourself and protect your personal information. If you or someone you know is in contact with someone you think may be a predator, go to this website virtualtaskforce . com. There is a place to report abuse to actual police officers who will help you. This is a global taskforce; it is not limited to the United States. Help spread the word throughout the site and the Internet.
These are the various pairings that I enjoy the most in my major fandoms that I've written fics for. I’m willing to read pretty much any fic if it's well written unless it goes against my morals (incest, pedophilia, non con, etc)
Notes: For the Yu-Gi-Oh ones, I will use the dub names to make things easier for people.
In the case of child characters, I should hope it’s obvious that I mean aged-up/older or cute kiddie shipping.
I left Disney off of the list, since it'd take forever for me to list them off.
Voltron: Legendary Defender
Star Vs the Forces of Evil

--Random and/or Amusing Things I Learned While Researching Info for my Stories--
- The written language of ancient Egypt was friggin' COMPLICATED! They had symbols for an alphabet, symbols for combinations of 2, 3, and even 4 consonants, and symbols that were added to clarify meaning and represented no phonetic value.
- Real life Egyptians had a nasty habit of not writing down the letters they considered vowels.
- Luckily, thanks to some vocal sounds we don't have in English, the Egyptians considered the letters A, I, and O/U to be soft consonants.
- The ancient Egyptians called their country "Kemet" which means black sand.
- The ancient Egyptain name for pharaoh was "Per A'a"
-The word for high priest is "Hem Ntjr"
- Some other random Egyptian words I learnt:
Neb-I : my lord
Nisu : Your majesty
Neb/Nebet : My Lord/Lady
Dau Netjer en ek : Thank you
- Royal blood was believed to be passed on from the mother, so pharaohs had to marry a princess to have a legit legal claim to the throne. That explains why so many seemed to marry their sisters/half-sisters. And yet nowhere in the YGO series does it seem as if Atem had a wife... (Strangely I am thankful for that because that's just gross even to think about.)
-Ammit or Ammut, also known as Devourer, as a demon and a personification of justice, ate the condemned forever. Her name literally means Bone Eater.
- The Egyptian word 'amenrenef' means "he whose name is hidden" and, IMO, would have made a better alias for Atem than 'Yami'
- The U added to Atem's name in the Japanese version of YGO would still have been a legit Egyptian word. Egyptians used U the way English speakers use S to make a word plural, so "Atemu" is Atem in the plural tense.
-Dancing played a vital role in the lives of the ancient Egyptians. All social classes were exposed to music and dancing. Dance troupes were accessible to perform at dinner parties, banquets, lodging houses, and even religious temples. Some women from wealthy harems were trained in music and dance. They danced for royalty accompanied by female musicians playing on guitars, lyers and harps.
-The ancient Egyptians sometimes addressed the country as Ta-Mery which means Beloved Land.
- Ancient Egyptians categorized their calendar in three seasons based on agriculture. Shemu = harvest, Akhet = Flooding Season, Peret = Growing.
-The wife of an Egyptian pharaoh is often referred to by Egyptologists as a consort. This is probably due to the fact that in some people's minds, the Egyptian queen was not a wife because of the lack of a religious celebration of marriage.
-Sekhmet is a Egyptian Goddess. She is depicted as a lioness, the fiercest hunter known to Egyptians. She was seen as the protector of the Pharaoh and led them into warfare.
- The kohl make-up used back then was made of malachite (the green copper ore), lead sulfide and other materials.
-Uraeus is the stylized, upright form of an Egyptian Cobra( or serpant, snake..) used as a symbol of sovereignty, royalty, deity and divine authority in ancient Egypt. It was usually seen atop a Pharaohs crown. Or on the Mask of a Pharaohs mummy.
- The Big Dipper was called Meskhetyw back in Ancient Egypt.
- Japanese tend to think of Christmas the way Americans think of Valentine's: romantic instead of religious.
-The name "Namu" means to devote, to adore, or to follow. It is part of a meditative chant, "Namu Myoho Renge Kyo."
-Japanese baths are meant for soaking in hot water, not cleaning yourself. You wash thoroughly before entering the bath, as the water is always kept in the tub and rarely changed. You either wash on the floor (which may have a drain) or you can just take a shower, which is usually located in the same room as the bath. The toilet is not located in the same room as the bath.
- Japanese New Year is a big holiday, pretty much the whole country stops what it's doing to celebrate.
- The legal age to drink alcohol in Japan is 20 years old. The legal drinking age in Egypt is 18 years old or 21 years old depending on the circumstances.
- Showing your teeth in Japan is considered rude.
- The ancient Egyptian translation for 'mou hitori no boku' or "the other me" is 'Key wi' which means "another me".
- Yugi's cannon birthday is June 4th.
- The first installment of the YGO DM manga list the events from the past happening 5000 years ago, but it was changed to the more accurate 3,000 years ago very soon in. The dub never picked up on this change, and kept it at 5,000 years ago, which places it in the wrong historical time period. (I will always set things in the past in my stories 3000 years ago, not 5000.)
- Pegasus and Mai are 24 years old according the manga.
-What do Honey from Ouran High School Host Club and Yugi have in common? They both have a AB blood type.
- Bakura’s name means, by itself, ‘baku’ translates roughly to ‘tapir’; ra is ‘good’ or ‘skilled’. No the creator didn't name him after the animal from South America.
Tapirs are associated with a certain Japanese youkai, a spirit or demon from folklore. The baku are mostly benevolent youkai that are said to eat bad dreams and nightmares so people can sleep peacefully. However, baku are also sometimes depicted as trouble makers that rob people of all their dreams, and sleep. Which is probably symbolism for what Yami Bakura supposedly did to Ryou.
-Malik means "king" in Arabic.
-When a member of the family died in Japan, usually a spouse, the living spouse sets up a small memorial shrine for the deceased which usually involves a picture of the deceased, their favorite things, incense and sometimes their ashes. Traditionally if a widow and widower marry the widower moves the shrine of her former husband into the home of her new husband and the two shrines are places together.
- People call a couple where a girl is taller than the guy a "flea couple" in Japan.
- Yami and Bakura can be both female names.
- In Japan, people dail 110 in an emergancy.
- THE PYRAMINDS IN EGYPT WERE NOT BUILT BY SLAVE LABOUR!
--About my writing --
Things to expect from my stories:
What I won't ever write period:
OOC: I'll try to keep the characters away from becoming OOC; if one of the characters does act OOC without any logical reason, I’m really sorry.
I believe that people's personalities can be heavily influenced by environmental stimuli and the circumstances that they grew up in. Sometimes my characters will be molded to fit the circumstances they're living in while still having traits from their canon selves. This will be reflected as such in my AU stories.
Ratings: My writing is geared towards teens and adults. I will change the rating of a multichapter if I think it needs it.
OC Characters: I know that sues have a enact of marring the reputation of many stories and fan fics, but that doesn't stop me from taking a shot of creating characters in my own fan fics once in awhile.
I will do anything in my power to make my original characters believable as possible. The only exception to this is when I make a mary sue on propose in parody stories.
Most of the time I will use an oc is a event where I need one whether it be for a villain, a minor character or a major side role.
I won't write "self inserts" either. I will go out of my way to make them completely different from myself, giving them traits and many character flaws like I would with any of my other characters. The only true self inserts will be a quick one shot cameo appearance and nothing more then that.
In short, if any of my OCs come off as Mary Sues for no reason, I'll do you all the favour of destroying the character for you, because I hate characters like that as much as most of you guys do.
--Criticism Definitions 101: For Writers and Critics (Taken from Peachie Wookie's Profile)--
Authors and authoresses, I think we all need a tutorial on what the differences between flames, harsh criticism and constructive criticism are. We all criticize our fellow authors' works at one time or another, reminding ourselves that none of us are perfect. It is important, therefore to know what the differences between flames, harsh criticism and constructive criticism.
1. The flame: A flame is characterized by no suggestions on improvement. It is simply a diatribe on how the story sucked, the author sucked and how s/he should get out of writing because s/he has no talent. A flame may also contain vulgar language, particularly language that would not be acceptable on North American TV. A borderline flame may contain some constructive criticism, but it also has insults that do nothing to help the author. A flame also contains insults toward the author in different forms.
2. The harsh (but useful) criticism: Okay, many of us have had a criticism that we agreed or disagreed with for some reason. Perhaps we needed to hear what was said, but it was phrased less than diplomatically. The critic intended honesty but was perhaps a little bit too blunt or used language that was too rough for the situation. This is not a flame, but is a criticism that can be used to our advantage.
3. The constructive criticism: This type of criticism contains what a critic liked about the story and what s/he felt you could improve upon. It is well worded and you, the author, can say, "Okay, this is definitely where I need some improvement and I'm glad you pointed that out."
Congratulations! You have just reached the bottom of my profile! Now that you're finally here, you can read the stories that you may or may not have been wondering if you'd ever find! XD
