Good Morning, Good Afternoon, Good Evening! Whatever time of day or night (go to sleep) it is for you, welcome to my profile.


21 years old at the time of this profile update.

I was 17 when I started writing. This account showcases my earliest writing attempts and some of my later writing developments too. I no longer consider myself a part of the Naruto fandom. It was easy for me to get out when my love for writing stayed but my enjoyment of the manga turned negative. I was beyond disappointed with the ending of Naruto, the regression that took place for the characters and its ships, and I've not bothered with Gaiden.

However, I don't regret watching the show. I spoke to some lovely people and got so heavily into reading and writing and that's going to stick with me as a lifelong hobby. I have learnt a lot and slowly improved simply by practicing and enjoying it – and I'm still doing that.

I have started writing original works. I plan to write a few books, starting with a couple of ideas that have hounded me over my writing years.

Regarding Naruto fanfiction, who knows if or when I will post some of my stories. Amnesia kept me tied into writing the characters of this universe and I promised myself and others I would continue uploading at least until it was finished. I have hundreds of other fanfictions I've started, having written hundreds of thousands if not millions of words, and whether I will ever post them or not, I'm not sure.

If you want to know how I made all my story covers: I would screenshot episodes and edit them together on Sony Vegas and Paint. I am aware many of them are now the wrong dimensions after a website update.

I wish to say a big thank you to you all. I have always appreciated the kind feedback I have received over the years. You’re awesome!

Pitter-Patter by dark dreamerx reviews
