Author has written 5 stories for Bleach.
Update 6/23/2013: Just wanted to let everyone know that I will be starting on Chapter 35 of Goldilocks next week, after I finish my commissions on DeviantArt and some other personal stuff. I only have three more commissions to go, a couple of oneshots, and some OC critiquing to do, and that's it! I'm going to try my hardest to get a chapter out every Friday so that I can finish Goldilocks before I have to go back to college!

As A Writer
As a writer I strive to improve with each work I write, and feel that I have so far accomplished that from what I wrote two years ago compared to my writing today. I've developed an appreciation for different styles, ideas, and points of view, and while I may have my side of how I feel things should be done, I'm open to listening to how what I do could be done differently.
I appreciate opinions and criticisms.
I DON'T appreciate flames, bashing, or mindless ranting. Please use sense in your thoughts and kindness toward me as I would to you.
Tell me how I can improve. Tell me what you like and dislike. Let me know if anything's confusing. Let me know what my strong and weak points are. Be specific and point out examples, otherwise I won't be able to see where you're coming from!
Here's what I feel are my strengths and weaknesses:
1.) Characterization - I believe this is what I am most successful at, and it's something that is just a natural part of my own personality. I like to observe people, I can notice small, subtle changes; little things about a person. What they're feeling and how they act, I can usually tell just from a glance. I find personalities incredibly intriguing, and so once I see one that captivates me, I'll most likely never forget it. With Bleach as an example, I watch a few episodes, and I have their personality down immediately. Sometimes when I feel that I might be making a character OOC, I go back to the manga and then see that I had it right...so...most of the time I don't believe I'll write a character OOC, but if you think I do, let me know! I want to do justice to canon characters because the creators worked so hard on them. :) I'm also (apparently?) pretty darn good at making OCs, major and minor. I dunno, I just think it's fun to show different personalities, and I actually imagine my OCs as being real people and use things I see every day and incorporate them with that.
2.) Spelling/Grammar - For the most part I think I'm pretty good at this! Yay for crazy English teachers pounding the English language into our heads! Though every now and again I'll make a slip, just kindly point it out and I'll fix it eventually.
1.) Plot - Okay, I KNOW I suck at this. :/ I am very hazy as to where I'm going to take my stories, I know what I'm going to do in the next chapter, and other itty bitty details, but the big picture is like...whoa. I'm not even thinking about that. So I'm very bad about having a good plot, you'll wonder where the heck I'm going with my stories and sometimes even I don't know and I try to just go with the flow...yeah. I know that's one area I need to improve on. Sometimes I'll have details in one chapter and you won't even see them come up until a bajillion chapters later, and then you won't even have realized that detail was important. xP
2.) Details/Being Descriptive - I'm kind of "...eh" on this. Again, I can describe a character's thoughts really well (most times I'll write in third-person omniscient), but with things like describing how things look or other sensory things...I'm not so good at. At first I barely used any details, then they were too flowery/poetic, and now it's kind of half-and-half. I use the excuse that I want to leave some of it up to the reader's imagination, but I can't do that with everything. I appreciate when authors describe things so I should probably try to do that too.
3.) Lemons - DO NOT TELL ME OTHERWISE, FOOL. (There aren't any on here, yet, but you can read some on my DA account.)
And yes, I am my biggest critic. I think every artist is the biggest critic of their own work, though I try not to beat myself up too much over it. I'm young and learning. I hope I'll continue to write in my twenties and even thirties! It's a passion and hobby for me, not something I want to make money off of or a career out of. I just love putting thoughts on paper and using words to describe things!
As A Reader
- reading about pairings I like
- any fic that bashes a character or kills off a character because the author dislikes that character (really people?)
I review most every story I read now, however, if I come across one I dislike, I'll just move on, unless the person specifically asks for constructive criticism. I do for my stories, because I know I can improve and I like to hear others' opinions, so long as they're said respectfully.
I keep up with the manga and episodes, so I know my Bleach stuff. I've been a big fan, though have only been watching it for around two years, even though it's been out for about 6-7. o.O I love the artwork, the plot, the characters are the most amazing part though. TK is a genius with his characters, their personalities are all different from each other and it's amazing, I really admire him for that. (It makes up for the fillers and the plot.)

Favorite Couples: Yoruichi x Kisuke / Shunsui x Nanao / Gin x Rangiku / Orihime x Ulquiorra / Nelliel x Nnoitora / Shinji x Hiyori / Rose x Love / Kensei x Mashiro / Byakuya x Hisana / Masaki x Isshin / Riruka x Yukio / Ikkaku x Yumichika / Retsu x Jushiro / Toshiro x Momo / Nozomi x Kon
Favorite Crack Pairings: Yoruichi x Mayuri / Nanao x Shuhei / Renji x Orihime / Hiyori x Grimmjow / Hiyori x Toshiro
I also believe that getting into arguments over pairings on the INTERNET is really pathetic and ignorant of people. By showing me that you don't respect other people's opinions, it's hard for me to respect you as a person. So just respect people's likes and dislikes, I really hate flames and hate groups and bashing in general. It's just pointless to me, rave about what you love, NOT what you hate.

Bleach OC FAQ:
So I decided to create this for those curious about my Bleach OC, Marise Asahina. :D If you have any questions, feel free to ask them and I’ll add it here:
Q: Why did you create her?
Q: Is she a self-insert? (Basically “self-insert” means the character is based off of the creator in almost every aspect.)
Q: Is she your baby?
I have, however, taken a multitude of Mary Sue tests for her, and she’s scored non-Sue on all of them. Be that as it may, I’m not going to throw that in your face and say, “Ha! Proof she isn’t a Sue!”, because honestly, that’s idiotic. -_- I respect people’s opinions.
Q: Why all the pink???
Q: Is she really fat?
Q: Why is she obsessed with Lupin III?
Q: Where did her name come from?
Q: Why does she like Rose, Love and Uryu?
Q: Will she be shipped with other characters?
Q: Why did you choose her to be a Human?
Q: Why half-French?
Q: Will Shinji and Mari get married and/or make babies? :DDDD
