Author has written 14 stories for Naruto, Bleach, and Harry Potter.

Good morning! I'm The Babel Fish, previously Dirigible Plum Earrings and Miss EPIC.

I'm going to go out on a limb, and say that you're either here because you know me (excellent sleuthing skills!), or you have inadvertently stumbled across this big empty space that I am currently filling up with words.

I live in the UK, so all my fics are written with British spellings.

Nobody famous or amazing has ever originated from my school. High school. College. Whatever.

I happen to like a lot of books, music, manga and anime.

DFTBA.

Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions about any of my fics.

Books: Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, the perks of being a wallflower, The Chronicles of Narnia, Artemis Fowl, To Kill a Mockingbird, R.J. Anderson, Little Women, Kazuo Ishiguro, Wild Swans, Xinran, The Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy, all non-fiction, and lots more.

Manga/Anime: Naruto, Bleach, Fairy Tail, Full Metal Alchemist, Ouran High School Host Club, Shiawase Kissa Sanchoume, Koizora, AIR.

Other: NCIS, Avatar: The Last Airbender, House, Sherlock (BBC), Doctor Who, Merlin, The Mentalist, The Big Bang Theory.

Wishlist of Authors: John Green, Bill Bryson, Haruki Murakami, Kazuo Ishiguro. Among others.


Shippings

Harry Potter: All canon shippings. I cannot dispute the Author. If the she wrote it, I ship it. Besides, I agree with her! But, I will read anything as long as it actually makes sense, and isn't something along the lines of 'Harry left his best friends to go and live happily ever after with Voldemort and their genetically modified pet pink hamsters' or something horrific like that. That would never happen.

But I do like NevilleLuna.

I also have a justifiable weakness for Marauder fics.
