Author has written 8 stories for Prince of Tennis, and TeniMyu.
So, I don't know what brought you here but hello! I'm aifuru and I write fan fiction when I have time to spare. Currently, I obsess over Prince of Tennis, particularly over Rikkai D1/Platinum Pair. So, expect most of my fics to be about them :)
If you need anything or you just feel like making friends or whatever, just PM me. I'll get back to you soon enough :) I also do not indulge request fics but I might take up your request when I'm in the mood.
Contact me on my dreamwidth or through PM here, if you'd like to have a chat. ;D
And here, I post a meme that might answer some of your questions about me, and fanfiction~ *U*
1. How about a brief introduction of yourself?
I go by aifuru as a pen name of sorts online but you may also call me April. ^^ I'm 16 and I take pictures, read and write mostly.
2. Fabulous! And what got you into fan fiction to begin with?
I do quite remember that it was all because of this Gakuen Alice thingo. I think a friend linked me to this site and I found it pretty fun and since I was just starting to get interested in writing back then (I was in 5th grade), I decided hey why not try this thing out for myself? So I did, and I wrote really crappy stuff which I deleted because I really hated my fail >_> It was so fail, I couldn't bring myself to stare at it. But yeah, that's pretty much how I got into fanfiction :))
3. I see, so what kind of fan fiction do you like to write?
Most of my fics end up to be full of fluff and cavity-inducing scenes (as mentioned by a reviewer from before XD) so I guess I enjoy writing fluff a lot. But otherwise, I'm into the whole crime-themed stuff too though I haven't tapped that with fanfiction, just original stories. So I guess I really do love writing fluff a lot, despite the many times I have wanted to kill myself for it. >_>
4. Do you tend to write the same pairings/characters? Or are you a fandom whore?
From the fandoms I've been in, I've always been constantly writing only for one or two pairings of that fandom. I have my ships, and I don't like breaking them, but I can't write for too many pairings at once. Just the one I really obsess over :))
5. What is your most popular fan fic and why do you think people like it so?
Ah. It was this old fanfic in my other account that I can't just delete because it got 200+ reviews :)) As to why people liked it, I don't know. I personally think my writing style back then was crappy and I've thought of deleting it but...the reviews keep it there. XD It's mainly why I started this new account, so I could write more things and not be haunted by that ghastly fic D8
6. Forget other people, what is the fan fiction you're most proud of?
Right now? I'm really proud of Kirakira since it got to 1000+ words and it's my first RPS fic. And it made me realize my inner tensai LOL. (Only my friends would understand XD)
7. Do you find writing easy? Hard? What are the most difficult aspects of writing you struggle with?
Writing was never easy. It really isn't when faced with numerous distractions like the internet which is why my muse tends to work only at midnight. I've been writing since...IDK actually but I think I started writing these pretty interesting stories back in 3rd grade that I want to finish but I can't think up of a decent ending and now that I'm here, I still struggle with writing. I'm easily distracted so, it's really hard for me but people seem to enjoy my pieces so I write it for them. Other times, I write it for a feeling of self-accomplishment. As for the aspects I struggle with, I used to have a hard time with making my pieces descriptive before. Now, I'm losing the touch of thinking up of a decent plot, hence the fluff you see amongst my fics. >_>
8. Write a few sentences about your favorite pairing or character.
I freaking adore Platinum Pair (Niou x Yagyuu) for a lot of reasons. But to name one, I really love them because...IDK, this pairing strikes me as something that's really smart. There's a lot behind their dynamic and it's just really fun to work with.
9. Are there any fan fiction cliches/trends that you can't stand or you're just sick of?
I'm really against killing off the main characters. I mean, seriously, it just breaks my heart. I'm not against seeing death in fics or anything but it's just...If you kill the main characters, it's just so painful. I can't understand how it's in anyone's hearts to do that D:
10. Are you guilty of any of the fan fiction cliche/trends? Or any other ones?
...Very guilty of fluff :))
11. What was the first fandom you wrote for?
Gakuen Alice ^^
12. Name your OTPs or most frequently written pairings/characters and explain what it is about them you love to write.
Like I've said, for the POT fandom, I freaking love Platinum Pair. They work with so much stuff that it's amazing.
As for other fandoms like Hetalia (my fics are all in my old account XD), my love lies in Spamano. *o* I guess I love them because they're freaking adorable and it's so easy to write fluff for them X3
13. What would you call your "writing style"?
It's full of fluff and I usually think hard when I'm writing so I guess I'll call it as generally fluffy with mind-boggling ideas to boot? Haha. IDK. My writing style's pretty...I don't even know it myself. I'm trying to learn how to describe but in the process, I've forgotten how to think up of plots.
14. Do you read other people's fan fic? If so, what do you find yourself reading the most?
I do, a lot. I often find myself reading those fics that are just really epic. I enjoy reading AUs more though since I get to see the writer's actual writing style...ish. Plus, it allows my brain to work and imagine. But I do find myself reading canon-world fics at times when it's really good 8D
15. Name ONE thing you'd love to write but have been too afraid or shy to do so.
To be honest? SMUT =)) LOL. I tend to grab inspiration from real life so this is really hard to do. (because as much as you may think it, I'm not a horny kid. LOOOOL I'm more of a hopeless romantic, if I may say so myself) I have tried reading so much smut, looking at things I'm not supposed to see at this ripe age of 15-turning-16 but nothing. It's one of my many writing dreams :)) I'm serious.
16. Do you have trouble taking criticism? Or worse yet, do you have the bloated ego?
I flinch and my heart skips a beat when I read the first line of a review that seems to be a flame but in the end, I get over it and just...get over it. Haters gonna hate, my friend. But I do take into consideration the stuff people point out to me and that helps me improve. :)
17. When you write, is there anything that helps? Music? Quiet room?
A 12 am-like atmosphere and not having internet. XD I cannot write when I'm being distracted by the internet so when I really want to write, I disconnect myself and be a hermit for a while. I also can't write when it's too quiet since that tends to be creepy so music helps. My iTunes is open almost 24/7 lol. And I've got a writing playlist of sorts.
18. What inspires you?
What makes my muse really work is when any of my friends spit out a line that seems to work in a fic. It's proven from the two fics I've recently posted here. So I guess my friends inspire me a lot. Other times, my fics just come out as products of deep critical thinking. o.o
19. Lastly, how would you sum up your fan fiction experiences and yourself as a writer?
I just counted and it's my fifth year since I got interested. My experiences with fanfiction were pretty mehhh and I've improved as a writer drastically.
03252011: I just got internet back. I wrote 3 fics. I've uploaded one but for some reason, ff.net's not letting me upload anything for the PoT section so if you'd want, please head over to my dreamwidth. They'll all be there :) Leave reviews for my Tenimyu one though *o* I'm also doing a 50themes/Love Quotes meme. :3 And the other 2 fics were a part of that *keyboard smashing here plz*
