Author has written 61 stories for Yu Yu Hakusho, Wallflower, Dragon Ball Z, Yu-Gi-Oh, and Pokémon.
Hello to everyone on Fanfiction and to my loyal followers! For those who don't know me personally, you can all call me Stormie :) I'm 22 and a college graduate (5/11/2013), graduating as a marine bio major with chem minor. My next major goals are to finish my research, get clinical hours for vet school, get an internship, and apply to graduate school while waiting to re-applying to vet school. I write a lot because I like being creative, it's fun, and it allows me to vent. Most scientists know how hard it is to be creative, but our imaginations can run rampant, as evident by the number of stories I have written and in-progress. Most stories have aspects of my own life in them (though they are incredibly warped. Nothing here is biography-like). And just so there is no question, I am in fact a girl ;)
I like many animes, but my absolute favorites are Yu Yu Hakusho, Dragon Ball Z, Yugioh, Hikaru No Go, the Wallflower, Sword Art Online, DNAngel, and I guess we can consider Pokemon (some do, some don't). I have only read fanfiction for YYH, DBZ, and the Wallflower, but I read other stories upon request. I have a TON of stories in-progress, and am right now trying to figure out which ones are staying or going, and for the ones that are staying, what I want to do with them. I refuse to put anything on an official hiatus, but until I knock out a great deal, it will be difficult to give an official update schedule. My life, as I'm sure you can all imagine, is quite hectic and on top of school related stuff, volunteering, and life. I thank everyone for their patience. The stories I have are listed at the bottom before the FFN story list in order to pair the completed stories, one-shots, and stories with sequels together where FFN keeps it listed by update.
Be warned that most of my stories are AU, OOC, and have many OC's so if you don't like that then a majority of my stories are not for you. I have had some majorly surprising feedback on some of those stories from those who are not usually fans of the type of stuff I write (mainly they like it). My main thing is that if one person favorites, adds to alerts, or continuously reviews, I will continue on with the story as best I can. Like I said, most of my stories are used to vent and are usually A/U and not always conventional. Sometimes the characters themselves are like OCs, but who doesn't love an interesting spin on things?
PS...I do not own the picture that I made my Avatar and I don't even remember where I found it...oops...(We must, after all, always disclaim what we don't own. FFN has taught me this XD)
So, what is FFN to you? To me, FFN is supposed to be about helping other writers. Sure there's "competition" but it's not supposed to be a war between writers. It's supposed to be a collaboration between writers offering helpful suggestions and encouragement.
And by the way...
Dragon Ball Pact: "This pact is meant to hold together the remaining fans of Dragon Ball/Z/GT. Whether you like the FUNimation dub or the Ocean dub, whether you like the manga or the anime, whether you say 'Saiyan' or 'Saiyajin', we must stand strong and united, for we are the last of our dying race. And all those who are true fans, post this up on your page, forever proclaiming your Dragon Ball heritage. Be proud, for you are a true Saiyan!"
(Thank you Lucifvegeta, my fanfiction brother, for the pact :D)

III. Review Policy
I never considered an actual review policy before. For the most part, I always went with a go with the flow type of policy. But as I think about it, there really should be something. I love reviews, especially those that give me feedback or ideas for future plot devices. I do not like flames, but I do handle constructive criticism well. I love being able to explain the method behind my madness when it comes to my stories, so I would not take offense to critique. I am in the science profession after all XD Everything we say or do is critiqued ;) So if you see this, please take into consideration that I do accept criticism and if you point out minor grammar mistakes, you aren't being rude. I NEED to be corrected in my grammar, especially when I am trying to write scientific papers. It makes it easier for me to provide the best writing possible for my readers. Sometimes you need another set of eyes to see mistakes you missed.
I don't mind short reviews, but update demands and one word reviews are not necessarily helpful. As mentioned above, my life's schedule is a roller coaster. I can have nothing to do one day and plan to work on 3 stories and then, out of nowhere, I have to run to the school for a last minute meeting, or go to volunteer and then I'm wiped out and can only make tweaks on 1 story. I don't mind the "I love this story, update soon," but the constant guest reviews of the word update from the same person tends to get annoying. I do have guest reviewing opened because I would love for the guests to give their feedback too.
As for reviewing other stories, I will always review a friend's story. As for other stories, if they have a really good plot and I find myself following it a lot, I will leave a review. I try not to criticize, especially because some writers don't take it well, but I will give helpful suggestions. If I comment on grammar, it is not an insult, but praise. In my daily life, I correct everyone's grammar. My friends actually expect me to. Just another quirk of mine, I guess XD Anyways, any criticism is just my way of saying the story is excellent, but there's always ways to make it even better ;) And believe me, reviews won't just be criticism. If I love the story, you will know :)
Now that I have a DA profile, I have been drawing some scenes from my stories and others' upon request. If anyone wants to post fanart for my stories to their profiles, I would love that, but let me know so I can post the links here so others can see them too :) I will never ask to post fan-art on my account, but will still favorite it so that others who see my profile can see it :) If you want to see the DA work for my stories, the links are posted in the story list at the bottom of my profile.
V. List of Stories and Timely Update
Well, I like to give a little update on the things going on with me so that if I'm not updating consistently, readers can know why. It doesn't mean stories won't get finished, but it will give people a sense of when things ACTUALLY start slowing down for me.
March 14, 2014: Well, it's been a while since I gave an update. I've been dealing with a mixture of good and bad. I'm interning at a vet clinic and waiting to hear on grad school, but I'm also dealing with a relative dealing with cancer. I've actually been writing a lot this month, probably because I need the distraction. I hope to get stories updated in a timely manner. Please forgive me if I don't. I thank everyone who has been patient with me.

VI. Story Recommendations
Dragon Ball Z
Adventures in Fast Food by 0Alykinze0: This one-shot is hysterical. Vegeta losing his temper at McDonald’s, not much more can be said.
Akai Tsuki: The Red Moon by Jiitari: This is a really unique story where Bulma releases Vegeta, The Legendary Destroyer of Worlds, and finds that he's trapped in the body of a child. It's a really cool story.
And So The Angels Cry by KimiruMai: When Vegeta and Bulma are cellmates on Frieza’s ship, the come to depend on each other for their sanity and limited comfort. When Vegeta’s life is in danger, Bulma takes a huge risk to protect her Saiyan friend. The one question remaining, will they make it out alive?
A Tortured Soul by KaiserNight: In a future, post-Android world, Mirai Trunks returns only to have to mourn the loss of his mother to a deranged man who becomes his teammate. This story has the makings to be truly great :)
Could Have Been by KimiruMai: A one-shot regarding Vegeta’s thoughts on Frieza and what the tyrant tried to mold him into, and how said tyrant failed.
Crimson Sunset by EFJRAD: Another take on Tundra’s life where he grew up on Planet Arcos. On his birthday, his uncle just happens to give him a really unexpected gift, a slave girl that Tundra really doesn’t know what to do with.
Crossroads of Destiny by LucifVegeta: It isn't far into the story yet, but the writing is excellent. Pretty much it's a change to the DBZ universe. I can't wait for the story to progress.
Fight to Survive by ImaginaryInk: After the fight on Namek, Bulma and Vegeta are trapped in the same proximity until help arrives. An action packed drama that that speaks to everyone on so many levels.
Guardian by Mr. Arkham: Baby Kakarot, instead of landing directly on Earth, lands on Kami’s lookout. Sensing both anger and power in him, Kami decides to train the Saiyan to control that anger and become the new Guardian of Earth. And of course, there’s still the Saiyan attack and Frieza to worry about.
Homeless Boy by LPphreek: An interesting twist on Vegeta’s life where he crash lands on Earth as a child and is found by Bulma. He returns to Frieza only to have his memories erased and yet meets her again when he comes to attack the Z Fighters. An action-packed romance, which makes it an amazing story in my book.
Justice Enforcers by KaiserNight: I’m normally not one for OC heavy stories unless they are really, really good, nor am I one for OC heavy DBZ stories period, but this story has been an amazing read as the descendants of some of the strongest warriors take on the universe to protect the Dragon Balls.
It Falls on Me by Bellaniza: I am a fan of A/U’s and this one is amazing. Bulma, a girl raised between Earth and Planet Vegeta is getting married to her longtime boyfriend, Yamcha. Unsure of her plans, and with the loving conspiracy of their friends and family, Bulma and Vegeta are pushed closer together, making the wedding plans up in the air.
In the Shadows by niteryde: Haunted by ghosts of his past, Vegeta, his family, and pretty much the whole world are under attack from these vengeful spirits, and they will not stop until Vegeta has suffered for his misdeeds, even if his family pays the ultimate price.
In These Moments by RaiynetheHedgehog: The only Gohan X Videl story I have ever read after reading multiple descriptions that did not catch my interest. This tale in sweet, romantic, but also full of turmoil as a teenage Gohan learns to deal with his past with the help of a new friend and lover. And they started out on rocky ground too. :3
Kageto: The Beginning of the Saiyan Supreme and Kageto: The Saiyan Supreme and the Fate Protectors by Kagetoworld (Now, Road to Eternity): Once a royal on Planet Plant, Kageto is banished from his home due to an unfair ruling. Afterwards, he gains new abilities that make him the Saiyan Supreme. Gaining two friends along the way, whose fates were no longer tied to Destiny, Kageto and the Fate Protectors strived for one thing, finding the Saiyan who would bring everyone’s fates together. Did I mention that Saiyan lives on Earth?
Play Dead by lezlarr: With being a mercenary, there are certain rules: do what you’re told, no questions asked, and if it’s your time to die, take it. But when given a second chance, taking it becomes an even more difficult concept to grasp, especially with a nagging woman watching your every move.
Rediscovering Honor by LPphreek: It’s been a while since I’ve read this story, but it was one of my first reads of DBZ fanfiction. This author clearly dove deeper into Vegeta’s character and revealed his journey between his life with Frieza and being the Saiyan prince he was truly meant to be.
Saiyan Rising by EFJRAD: When Cooler’s best soldier, a Saiyan, is put to a challenge, he reflects more on the lives he has taken. Given the task to go to Earth and eliminate the Z fighter, things take a turn for the worst and the Saiyan warrior is indebted to his new comrades. Meanwhile, another Arcosian desires his death. I wonder that that works out ;3
Second Chance by Full Power: Ever wish you can get a second chance? Bardock, after feeling the force of Frieza’s attack, is transported to the future…and to Earth…just in time to see his two sons battling. Now, with the threat of Nappa and Vegeta coming to Earth, Bardock is now training with the Z fighters to prevent Earth’s destruction while getting to know his youngest son in the process.
Touch of Legacy by KimiruMai: Ready to be both amused and confused? Well get ready. In this amazing story, four different Vegeta’s from four different timelines/universes died at the same and were wish back to one time at the same time. Now Bulma has four Saiyan princes of different ages to deal with and it’s a mess, but she’s able to connect with all of them. One of my personal favorites by KimiruMai :)
Zarbon's Rebellion by FinalFlashX: If you are a Zarbon fan, this is the story for you, and even if you aren't (I'm not really), the story is very well written. In this story, Zarbon reflects on how much he has put into the PTO and realizes that even though he has always been loyal and done everything asked of him, the threat of death is still there. It's a pretty interesting take on Zarbon that I hope to see more of.
Yu Yu Hakusho
Any story by Just 2 Dream of You. If I sat here and listed them, I would be here all night XD She writes everything Hiei, getting me into the Hiei/Botan pairing. She’s one of my besties :)
A Problem of Megellanic Proportions by dragoscilvio: If you love penguins and Hiei, this one-shot it for you. After all, what does Hiei look like? ;)
Contentment by Secret Sin: A highly emotional story where an expecting grim reaper and fire demon have to overcome multiple challenges to keep a safe home for their children to be. With the support of many and the opposition of Spirit World, will things turn out for better or worse?
Devoured by a Dragon by dragoscivio: The Dragon of the Darkness Flame is Hiei’s most powerful attack, but it is also a living creature. What does it mean for our favorite fire demon when the Dragon wants control? A very touching and emotional story regarding Hiei’s inner thoughts and what he thinks of himself.
Hide Your Matches by MoonChild2308: A troubled girl moves from America to Japan. If home life and not knowing how to read the language wasn’t bad enough, she just has to run into the only person who would politely insist to teach her. But there’s secrets she’s keeping, and it’s only a matter of time before someone finds out.
Kurama & Hunger & Lack of Kitchen Skills EQUALS?: This one-shot cracked me up. It was nothing like what I would have expected. How things catch on fire, I will never know XD
My Downfall by LucretiaDecoy: This story was recommended to me by Just 2 Dream of You. It’s a very realistic Hiei X Botan romance with the most IC Hiei ever. Very long, but very worth it.
Opposition: Yin and Yang by Reyka Sivao: These two one-shot are so emotional. They are of Hiei’s and Yukina’s thoughts on one another. Very well written.
Our Days Together by InuChimera7410: A young girl gets caught in the crossfire of the new transfer students’ battle leaving Hiei powerless and her a target. Later on, she learns that there is so much more to her family history and ancestry than she had originally believed. Her nightmares seem to leave more questions than answers. Another Hiei X OC romance that will keep you entertained while always keeping you guessing.
The Main Character Never Dies by Migoto Kuragari: This one-shot is for those who are NOT fans of Twilight. Kurama and Hiei are sent on a mission, and somehow a vampire movie ties into the mix, one that is poorly written. What are two demons to do?
Unexpected Love by mukurohieiforever00: Kurama gets injured by bounty hunters and is forced to revert to spirit fox form. Yukina, the caring soul she is, takes in the injured spirit fox and tends to his wound. Meanwhile, Kurama is trapped and cannot leave and when he finally can, he’s already bonded with his best friend’s sister and has to deal with his own feelings.
Waking Dreams by BabyDukes: An interesting, somewhat romance between Shizuru and Kurama that all starts because Kurama is having problems with his other half. It is starting to pick up, and I can’t wait to see what happens.
Whiskey Wishes by kawaiialchemist: Botan and Hiei are forced to live together, and through a drunken night become something more, and have to deal with the consequences. It is a fluffy, heart-wrenching story that is just so KAWAII! XD
What You Saiyan! By dragoscilvio: This is the story I’m working on the sequel for. This amazing crossover has secret surprise of Hiei’s parentage. Where does our favorite Saiyan prince come into all of this, and why is there someone after the fire demon everyone knows and loves?
White Christmas by dragoscilvio: A Christmas one-shot where Hiei is living with his new family and slowly adjusting to what it means to actually have a family. Takes place between What You Saiyan! And Tarble in the Family.
