IMPORTANT - Hiatus Note
It's been pretty obvious over the last few months that I have not been active. I'm sorry about that, guys. I know there are a lot of you that looked forward to my stories, but... I can't do it. Not now.
A lot happened these last few months. I... won't get too much into detail, but my health declined. It was serious. My grades fell, and I kept on making mistake after mistake, further pushing people away from me.
I don't think I'll be gone forever. I'll be back, someday. I just don't know when. I'm really sorry.
I hope you'll understand.

Hey! Happy New Year everybody! Let's hope 2015 brings fruition to all of us.
I'm currently re-writing the first twenty-or-so chapters of Lost and Found, so please don't expect it to be updated anytime soon. " At the moment, I'm working on chapter 2. Of 26. ... Like I said, it won't be updated for a looooong while... But already it seems so much better! I'm excited!
I'm also in the middle of writing a new chapter for Merry-Go-Round, and here's a special treat! I've recently realized the Rin in that story is developing the same problems as the Rin from TGW. And so, expect to see some character development. ;) I'm going to try to make Rin less whiny from now on, and Gumi will be helping!
Finally, please visit my forum, right... here! It's called The Know-It-All's Footnotes - Naty's Corner, and in it I provide you with some hard-earned wisdom... sort of. Hopefully you'll find some good material there that will help you grow as a writer. That's my goal!
And thank you to all of you who wished me Merry Christmas! Thank you guys for another great year!
About the Author
My name is Naty17. As of 2015, I am sixteen years old, having been born May 27th, 1999. I've been writing for almost five years now and FFN is one of the most amazing things to have happened to me. Unfortunately, I'm not so active anymore, but this place is still incredibly important to me, so once every blue moon, I breathe a little air back into this account. Don't hold your breath, though.
How I Discovered Fanfiction
It all started a few years ago, when I was looking up pictures on Google of the Harvest Moon fandom. It must have been fate that I came across a fanfiction called Jamie's Story', by TheSnowSakura. I thought it was the coolest thing, the idea of writing for your favourite random, so I officially joined the site on February 18th, 2011.
How I Discovered Vocaloids
The summer of 2011, I made an amazing new discovery. I met a girl at summer camp named Mae, a girl who also liked anime and video games. We very quickly became friends and she decided to show me something she really liked: her new favourite music. My first ever Vocaloid song was 'Popipo' (Hatsune Miku). I thought it was hilarious and catchy; I wanted more.
I first began writing for the Vocaloid random on September 22nd, 2011 with a oneshot called 'The Last Revolver', based off the song of the same name by mothy (sung by GUMI). It was... not good. " It was more like an essay than a story as I rattled off all I had learned from the wiki pages. XD I took it down not long afterwards.
My first multi-chap story was 'Lost and Found', published October 11th, 2011Lost and Found is really special to me. It marked a huge change in my writing as it started out rather cute and fluffy, but quickly became much darker. That story helped make me who I am today. There are a lot of problems with it, of course, but I've put a lot of time into it and I really honestly love it. There are things I dislike about it, but the good outweighs the bad by FAR.
Following that was 'The Girl in the Ward', published April 19th, 2012. This one is still, to date, my most popular story. In fact, it is currently the 18th most reviewed story in the entire Vocaloid fandom! :O That, my friends, is an amazing achievement. :') It's a really stupid story, kind of. XD It's not all that good, but... I have a lot of love for that one too. Obviously, many others do as well. It's just... special, I guess. Someday though, I'll create a story even better than that one, I promise! O.O
My favourite Vocaloid pairing, like most people, is Rin and Len. I have a few yuri pairings I like, including Rin x Miku, Rin x Miki, Rin x Gumi, et cetera, but my favourite yaoi pairing would have to be Len x Lui. Pretty much anyone can be paired with the Kagamines and look good, but there are certain pairings I do dislike: I absolutely can't stand Len x Neru. Please, get it out. Len x Haku is just as bad. I'm not a big fan of Len x Miku either, but I can bear with it. I don't really like Haku x Neru- actually, I pretty much dislike Haku in general. " Also, I dislike all the fan-made Vocaloids, such as genderbends, Lenka, Rinto, and the Shion family. My only exception to this is Mikuo.
My favourite novelist would definitely be Kelley Armstrong, author of the Darkest Powers trilogy and the Otherworld series. I don't know how she does it, but I never want to put her books down. I must have read The Summoning at least fifteen times! She is one of my heroes and I had the privilege in 2014 to actually meet her in person! She's a really smart woman and a good speaker. She's just so cool...! OuO *drools*
My favourite manga artist would definitely be Nakahara Aya, the author of Lovely Complex, Berry Blast, and many other really great stories. :3 She's a huge inspiration and her author's notes are the absolute best! XD My favourite manga would be Pearl Pink, which was unfortunately cut short after four volumes. But WHY!? It was so funny! D': Another of my heroes would be the Death Note duo, Ohba-sensei and Obata-sensei. I think it's amazing how drastically their style changed after switching from Death Note to Bakuman and I truly admire them for being able to pull it off.
When it comes to manga, I really love comedies most, and that's why Nakahara-sensei is held so dearly to my heart. Despite my dark style of writing, what I love most is too laugh! Isn't that kinda funny? XD If you haven't heard of her, go read Love Com! I thought I wouldn't like it at first, but after giving it a try, it quickly become one of my ultimate favourites!
On the other hand, there are a few manga I absolutely can't stand:
I could never get into it. I just found the story really boring! They acted seriously about everything and treated everything with such drama, yet I sat there thinking, 'What's the big deal?' I just found it weird and not very entertaining.
Those chins. THOSE CHINS. I tried reading those books several times, but even though I tried to ignore the art, the story turned out to be a huge disappointment. I just didn't like it.
Oh. My. God. There is no author I hate as much as Arina Tanemura. I'm sorry, but the story is just SO BAD and those eyes- THOSE FREAKING EYES. I mean, I know shojo manga can go kind of crazy with their shojo eyes, but Tanemura's eyes just scare the crap out of me. Oh yeah, let's go back to the story. I've read more than one of her manga, but the only one I really remember is The Gentleman's Alliance. The story seemed so completely random! It was like, 'Hey, guess what, I'm gonna buy you now', 'HEY I'M A CUTE GIRL LET'S BE FRIENDS!', 'Hey, you know that cute girl you're friends with? She's a guy.' And what bothers me the most is that the crossdresser looked nothing AT ALL like a guy. I mean I've seen crossdressers before in manga, Love Com being a terrific example. The difference is that most of these characters have at least some masculine kind of feature. Most of them, if you cut their hair, took off their makeup and put them in boys' clothes, would actually look like boys. The crossdresser in The Gentleman's Alliance does not have that trait. It's almost as if Tanemura decided at the last second, 'Hey, you know what would spice things up? Let's make this chick a crossdresser! Yeah, let's give her a wee-wee!' Ugh. Just... Stop it.
Other manga I've read include Ouran HighSchool Host Club, After-School Nightmare, Kimi ni Todoke, Girl Got Game, Absolute Boyfriend, Nana, Stepping on Roses, Love Hina, xxxHolic, Tsubasa, Kitchen Princess, Dragon Voice, Kuroshitsuji, Are You Alice?, Naruto, Fruits Basket, Hot Gimmick, Nanaco Robin, Berry Blast, Wallflower, V.B Rose, High School Debut... the list will never end.
In the end, I'm just another girl who can't help but always think of writing, keeping myself awake as I plot chapters and decide what Mikuo will say at this part, who Rin will punch next, who should die today, etc, etc, etc... Luckily, I'm used to functioning on little sleep, so it's not usually a *yawn* problem...
So, this is me. Love me or hate me, I am Naty17. Nice to meet you!

OH MY GOSH. GUYS.
The Girl in the Ward is on the first page for the most reviewed stories. O_O I BEAT AZN-RINNY. OH MY GOSH. OH MY GOOOOSH!!!!! I just can't believe this...! I never thought... I mean, I DREAMED of getting onto the top list, and I bragged saying I would, but... Now... Now I am!!! ... Imma go pass out somewhere. Be back in five.
Lost and Found is on the second list. Do you think maybe my precious L&F will rise to the top too...? Oh my gosh, that would be so...! *dies* Anyway, I am SUPER stoked, so stoked, in fact, that I used the word STOKED! (Who says that anymore? o.o)
I LOVE YOU ALL, BECAUSE I'D BE NOWHERE WITHOUT YOU.

My two year anniversary was 3 days ago, by the way. ;) And I got sick and threw up. ... Great anniversary. I've been pretty sick since... my tummy's growling at me. @-@ No, like, not in a hungry way, but in an 'I'm gonna kill you' way!

Most of you have probably already seen and read my update titled 'Don't Let the Author Die'. If you haven't, please read it. This is in regards to it.
She keeps pushing off the hearing of my 'decision' until later. I have a feeling she knows what my response will be. She's pushed it off to this Saturday now. My decision hasn't changed. I hope you all know that, if I do 'die' from this, I will die fighting, and I will do anything in my power to come back. I always will no matter how crazy that makes me.
I'm getting my teacher to write her a letter saying I HAVE been working better at school. I'm still trying to get her to read all the wonderful things you've said. But... it doesn't matter. To her, strangers are strangers, and she doesn't care of what you have to say. She won't listen.
She's trying to read my fanfiction stories. She's decided to read Puppy Mill first. She doesn't know how to navigate through chapters, however. I won't teach her. I want her to lay off, but... she's determined.
November 22th, 2012
Oh... oh wow.
I think I can really officially consider myself a popular FFN author for the Vocaloid fandom now.
My last update was around November 10th, maybe November 11th, or something... And yet, the amount of views I get each day hasn't yet dropped under 50. Oh. My. GOD. You guys are just... wow. I will never EVER be able to thank you all enough, just like how I'll never EVER be able to tell you exactly how great it feels... to know that I'm so close. I'm about halfway there to making it. And I will! I promise you I will!

A miracle happened: I forgot to check my review count for chapter 7 of The Girl in the Ward, so I decided to go check up on that along with chapter 8. So I looked... and chapter 8 had 12 reviews (although it's changed now). And chapter 7... 21 FREAKING REVIEWS. Oh my lord... I do believe I may just die of happiness now... 21 REVIEWS!!! I didn't think that was even possible!!! With 8 chapters, TGW currently has 107 reviews. OwO And meanwhile... Lost and Found, with 16 chapters has 97 reviews. XD Poor L&F... it must feel so unloved...!
August 5th, 2012
:') I just posted chapter 4 of The Girl in the Ward two days ago... I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!!!!! 6 reviews in the same day (it was late at night, so most of the reviews were posted in the next 24 hours), plus a bunch of faves!!! And the traffic stats... 172 on the day it was posted, then 76 the next day! You have no idea how proud and happy I am!
I've been on this site for almost 18 months now... and nothing ever makes me happier than this site. You are all so great, and I love you all so much! I know, I'm repeating that over and over again, but you have no idea how happy this place makes me! Like many of you, my dream is to become an author... and 32 reviews for only 4 chapters makes me so absolutely thrilled! If this keeps up... at 10 chapters, I'll have around 80 reviews! That's so incredibly amazing! (EDIT Jan/24/2013: TGW is at 10 chapters now, and I currently have 155 reviews- which is nearly twice as many as I thought I'd get. WOOHOO!!!)
This one (really bad) story I made for the Harvest Moon had 17 chapters and 106 reviews. In 3 more chapters after the tenth, if this review count keeps up, I'll have 104 reviews for 13 chapters. I'll beat it!
So... yeah, I'm on cloud nine. XD
This is even more popular than Lost and Found, which gets about 5 reviews per chapter. At 10 chapters, it has 48 reviews. The Girl in the Ward, at 10 chapters, will hopefully have 80. It's just... SO GREAT!!!
I'm so extremely grateful to ALL of my fans, and I hope you never leave me, because I don't plan on leaving you soon!
June 17th, 2012
:') I swear, you people are going to make me cry of happiness...! All those hits and views to Lost and Found are going to kill me someday, they make me so happy!
I'd just like to try to tell you all... even though I probably won't be able to express it all... how happy you guys make me feel. I absolutely adore you all, and I hope I'll be able to keep you all with me here, because you're all just so... so... so great! I just... don't know what to say! I've been here for a year and 4 months now... and let me just say, these have been the happiest year and 4 months of my life (sort of)! When I'm writing, it definitely feels good... I mean, I love to write, and I'm sure many of you feel the same way. But when I see how many hits I get, and read the reviews you guys send me... that's an even better feeling.
I love you all!

My poll is now CLOSED! I've decided to make the new Vocaloid story about Rin and Len once being twins, then finding out they weren't. Look for it soon! I'm already done chapter 1, I'm just waiting to find a few more characters for the story, n' stuff, but it'll be out soon! It's gonna be called 'Lost and Found', if you're interested!

Happy April Fools day, everybody! I made a lot of progress today; TWO NEW STORIES! One comedy, and one random drabbles thing for when I'm bored, or in case I get author's block. And yes, that would mean that my uploader is working (for now...)! Yes! Alleluia! I'm also working on Cry Me a River 4 right now... I didn't like my written version, so I restarted EVERYTHING from chapter 4, on, using some of the ideas to guide me. Meet Me In The Pouring Rain 3 was posted not too long ago too, so... OK, b-bye for now! Peace.
March 29th, 2011
Finally found a way to upload, thank god, but there's no way to start a new story... Darned chicken bits... Nah well... I'm working on MMPR (Meet me in the Pouring Rain) Ch.3 right now, but in secret. Yep, that's right; I'm grounded again. I have issues...
March 19th, 2011
Hello, there! I finally updated this profile! Yay! I posted Cry Me A River Chapter 2 yesterday, if anyone wants to check it out, and I’m also working on a oneshot for Chelsea X Vaughn, I think I’ll call it “A different image”. It’s in the same style as “Meet me in the Pouring Rain” though, K? Alright, bye! Have fun reading!
