As an author, I seem to write primarily either YukixTohru or Yuki centric stories, all of which seem to connect back to or center around Yuki's past with Akito. I don't really know why this is. Wait, yes I do. Because I'm obsessed with that pairing and because I have a twisted mind that's fascinated with Yuki's past. Sorry Yuki-kun... It's just so much fun to write about! And the angst is endless! I do love to write angst and I mean really, really love to write angst.

Blog:Visit me, comment, follow... yeah, pretty much go and check it out if you would!
YouTube:It's not that exciting, but my MMV attempts and cosplay compilations are here.
Facebook:If you so choose to send me a friend request, please also send me a message telling me who you are. If I haven't spoken with you on FF.Net before, I probably won't friend you, but if I have, feel free to send a request!
Pen Pals: I've taken up the hobby of pen palling! Old school mailbox to mailbox conversations. One of my current pen pals is also on this site and she also put a pen pal ad on her profile which convinced this is an okay thing to do. So... If you have the inclination to pen pal, send my a private message and we'll see about getting started. If you live outside of the US that's fine, seeing as I love my foreign pen pals. So message me if you feel the bubbling urge.
My Cosplay: If any of you have been reading my stuff (and, more importantly, my ANs) you know that I made a Yuki Sohma cosplay and wore it to a con and was glomped so many different times. *nervous laugh* But anyway, here is a link to a picture of me and my cosplay plus the Tohru and Kyo that I stalked down: http://sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/282886_4222373003881_471880262_n.jpg

I think that these two make the sweetest couple for various reasons. Don't tell me that according to the manga he thinks of her as a mother. I know what the manga says. I also know what my heart says. Yuki would treat her like the princess to his prince and she would listen to anything weighing down his heart. Yuki would love her despite her ditziness and Tohru would help Yuki outside of his social comfort zone. Even when they stand next to eachother at the end of the manga they still look like the perfect couple despite the fact that we know it will never happen. That's saying something.
I can deal with many things while reading fanfiction. Pairings I dislike such as Kyo/Tohru don't bother me. I'm not going to tear down someone else's favorite pairing just because I don't like it. If I don't like a pairing or plotline, I just don't read it. However, it drives me nuts when people refer to a character as 'the dark haired man', 'the light haired boy', or 'the brunette teen'. That drives me insane. On the note of hair... I also don't understand why people think Yuki's hair is purple. O_O He's a rat. Since when has there been any sort of a purple rat? In the anime, his hair is a dark silver and can sometimes appear to be a hybrid shade of purple. But I promise you that it isn't. In rat form he is obviously grey and the cursed Sohmas hair color match the shade of fur that they have when they transform. HIS HAIR IS SILVER/GREY!
A LESSON IN JAPANESE HONORIFICS
"-san" is used basically everywhere. You use this when you are not completely familiar with the person. It's like "Mr.", "Ms.", or "Mrs.". For instance, Yuki calls Tohru "Honda-san". This is a very polite and respectful way to refer to her. When you first meet some one you call them by "family name"-san and when you become a little more familiar you can use their given name with -san.
"-kun" is used between friends and classmates. If you are classmates you can use the honorific before you ever call them "-san". When Kyo asks Tohru not to call him "Sohma-san" she begins to call him "Kyo-kun" instead. And before she used Yuki's first name she called him "Sohma-kun" because they were classmates. It is NOT restricted to only guys! Girls may also be called "-kun"! Many people refer to Tohru as "-kun", including Shigure who calls her "Tohru-kun".
"-chan" is used primarily by girls for girls and young children. It's most common among teenagers and children or if an adult is speaking of someone of that age that they are very familiar with. Tohru calls Uotani and Hanajima "Uo-chan" and "Hana-chan" because they are her close friends. It can also be used like "darling" or "honey" is used among English speakers. Some couples will refer to thier significant other with "-chan" and although its more common for the girls to use it, some guys will too in a couple situation.
"-sensei" is used for teachers or someone who has mastered an art. Shigure is called "sensei" by his editor because he's an author. And Mayu (Yuki, Kyo, and Tohru's homeroom teacher if you don't recognize the name) is called "sensei" as well.
"-sama" is similar to the medieval phrase "milord". It means that the person being called "-sama" is highly respected and revered. For example Akito is called "Akito-sama" by some people because she's head of the household and also because she's, well, "god". So she's called "Akito-sama".
"-senpai" is used for upperclassmen or some one older than you that learn from (although it's not used for teachers). Yuki calls Motoko "Motoko-senpai" because she's a year ahead of him.
Fandom never dies...
There's going to come a day when we've all grown up, had a career, maybe got married and had kids, when were all going about our daily routine. Maybe you're driving to work with the car radio on, or you're making dinner with the TV on in the lounge. Life as usual, and then we hear a name. It's the name of the person you had a blog dedicated to when you were 16. The person you had posters of up on your bedroom wall, or as your desktop background. The person off that show you used to watch every week, as soon as it came out, or that band you used to love. The person from the cast of a movie that changed your life, or the character who you scrolled through page after page of fanfiction of. You haven't heard that name in a long time, and it brings everything back. And then the name is followed by three words you thought you'd never hear.
Has Passed Away.
And then you put down the potato peeler and lean back against your kitchen bench, or you pull over to the side of the road, and tears are streaming down your face. And all over the world, there are people who used to be just like you, with tears marking their cheeks and sobs forcing their way out of their throat, because they remember.
We never really move on.
We never really forget.
You know what Mommy
You went to the doctor today.
I can hear that doctor again.
