Name: Green Eyes
Place of Residence: N/A
Occupation: Space Cowboy
Hobbies: Reading / Running / Listening to Music
Books: Far too many to even attempt to list. To give you an idea, I have almost four bookcases full of books that I've read multiple times.
Games: Dragon Age / Tomb Raider / Uncharted / Gauntlet Legends / Star Fox 64 / Skyrim / Mass Effect / Jak and Daxter / Kingdom Hearts / Street Fighter / Shadow Hearts: Covenant / Star Ocean (particularly 3, and to a lesser extent 4) / .hack (the first 4 were better then the later GU trilogy in my opinion but I liked both) / Final Fantasy / Shadow of Colossus / Zelda: Ocarina of Time / Radiata Stories etc...
TV: Firefly / Daredevil / Leverage / Jessica Jones / Rick & Morty / Futurama / Nikita / Person of Interest etc...
Favorite Fandoms: I'm open to a rather diverse group; even if I have limited or negative experiences with the "cannon" versions. Twilight for example. I've read a few of those fics that I quite like, at the same time I am a fan of neither the books nor the movies.
Anime I Like: No Game No Life / Lupin the 3rd / s-Cry-ed / Log Horizon / Outlaw Star / Cowboy Beebop / One Piece / Witch Hunter Robin / dot Hack / Princess Mononoke / Nausicaa Valley of the Wind / Appleseed / Karas / Fairy Tail / Furi Kuri aka Fooly Cooly (FLCL) / My Neighbor Totoro / Spirited Away / Origin: Spirits of the Past / Howl's Moving Castle / Tekkonkinkreet etc...
Comics: I love comics even more than anime. All the Marvel / DC / Vertigo / Dark Horse whatever, I pretty much like it all. I'm a closet super hero geek.
Favorite Characters (In no particular order)
Harry Potter: Luna Lovegood / Dobby / Neville Longbottom / Hermione Granger (favorite, followed by Luna probabl)

Teen Titans (cartoon): Raven / Cyborg / Jinx / Gizmo (love the little dude)
The Runaways: Nico Minoru / Chase Stein / Molly Hayes
Cowboy Beebop: Françoise Appledehli aka "Edward Wong Hau Pepulu Tivruskii 4th" aka "Radical Edward" aka "Ed" / Spike Spiegel / Faye Valentine / Jet Black (yeah I don't care that I just listed all the main characters, I like 'em all, one of my all time favorite anime)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Faith Lehane... end of story. she's my girl on that show.
Worm: Taylor "Skitter/Weaver/Khepri" Hebert / Lisa "Tattletale" Wilbourn / Dragon "Tess Richter"
Preferred Pairings (not including pairings in a crossover)
Well generally speaking I like het. I am not generally a huge fan of yaoi/slash pairings. I have read a few that I have liked, and reading about two males being romantically involved does not bother me, but I also generally find myself uninterested in that type of content. My feelings on yuri/femslash are slightly different, I enjoy it just as much as het. as long as its written well. The reason being is that there is nothing I love more than strong female characters; and generally you're guaranteed at least one in these kinds of pairings because they are generally the main characters in the story.
My feelings on harem pairings are that I am generally not a fan. Really though this is only because the vast majority of said pairings are pretty awful and don't really seem to add much to the overall story.
Worm: Taylor x Most anyone as long as it's interesting
Teen Titans: Raven x Jinx / Raven x Starfire / Raven x Beast Boy
Final Fantasy VII: Vincent x Yuffie / Vincent x Tifa
Harry Potter: I'll read basically any pairing from this fandom. Though, I am not really a fan of Draco, and I am a fan of Hermione
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Faith x Buffy
Pet Peeves (in fics):
One of my biggest ones is when authors say "don't like don't read" or some variation. Why? All your doing is alienating possible readers who might come to enjoy your story even if it's not what they generally read. Maybe you just stopped that person from reading his/her first au, or romance, or slash, or whatever the case may be. I understand putting up labels for things like violence or pairing information, but adding in that phrase makes it seems like you really don't want them to read your work. And yeah, I understand maybe it can be seen as a preventative measure against flames or something; but, I don't know. It was always something that sort of bugged me, maybe that's just some weird little quirk about me.
Badly done self-inserts/OCs.
In crossovers when the character in the new fandom is able to fix any and all issues that the cast of the for lack of better term "home" fandom might face. This happens often in Naruto crossovers for example where Naruto ends up being pretty strong and casually taking care of and defeating any and all problems the main characters of the other fandom face and grow from. When this happens, those characters often become somewhat unnecessary which really defeats the purpose of a crossover in the first place. Incidentally, this often has the side effect of making whoever the main character of that other series to be at best useless, and at worst exaggerated into some sort of unrealistic asshole cum whipping boy to make Naruto, as is the example here, seem cooler. These kinds of stories are painful to read and I try to avoid them. Also, for whatever reason, these usually end up being stories where the "Naruto" has god-like powers and is building a harem of every female character in the visiting series... An exaggeration? Maybe, but a lot of the times depressingly enough, it doesn't feel like it.
Author notes in the middle of the chapters, especially when it generally isn't something all that useful. All it does is distract from the reading. It ruins the flow and my ability to become immersed in the story. If the author's note is important then save it for the end and I'll read it, promise.
Besides that, I'll read pretty much anything. I try to give all types of stories a fair chance; I'm not that picky as long as it is done well.
Goals: to one day sit down and start writing a story that I can be proud of. Harder than it sounds really.
