Hi, I'm The Mocking J (MJ for short!).
I generally cross-post fics between here, AO3, Deviantart and Tumblr. But if you're looking for newer stuff or short prompt fills that aren't here, they'll definitely be on my AO3 or Tumblr! I would post the links here, but they always seem to magically disappear.
Also...sorry if I'm behind on updating any fics. My time isn't as free as it used to be, but I'll do what I can!
My Hero Academia - Fave characters: Everyone... except Mineta and Bakugo but I'm sure the latter will improve.
The Ancient Magus' Bride - Fave characters: Lindel, Silky, Alice
ATLA/ LoK - Fave characters: The whole Gaang (Aang especially), Wan, Bolin
Pokemon - Fave characters: Wally, Emma, Steven and Hau from the games, Clemont and Looker from the anime, Green (boy) and Yellow from the Manga.

Star Wars (or more accurately, The Force Awakens) - BB8, Finn
Marvel - Groot, Peter Parker, Thor, Shuri
Voltron - Pidge, Shiro... pretty much the whole team
But my No.1 favourite fandom happens to be:
There's nothing I love more! I adore the characters, epic storylines, music, heartwrenching cutscenes, puzzles... You name it!
Fave characters: I guess Aurora is my all time favourite female character... but I think I like all of them.
My preferences on characters change depending on who I am writing/reading/watching/viewing fanart/fangirling about. So, I've decided to do a SPOTLIGHT CHARACTER PROFILE. I'll present to you which character I currently enjoy, and give reasons for why they're awesome (spoilers may be included). :D
Archie Pendrake and Lisa Adamson

The Ancient Magus Bride: Chise/Alice
Name: Archibald "Archie" Pendrake
Home Town: London
Occupation: Aspiring artist/ Archaeology student
Appearance: Silver hair, light olive skin tone, dark eyes and fine-boned angular facial features.
Fave outfit: Black turtleneck sweater, grey jeans and black boots.
Personality: Archie appears to have a polite amiable manner to people he meets. He's quick to offer compliments and often praises others for their abilities and style, insisting that they should always pursue their talents. As an artist he is creative with a flair for painting and similar craftsmanship. At times you might find yourself falling asleep as he tends to drone on (a habit similar to his father) about fabulous art and frequently expresses his dream to become a renowned artist. He can be sappy and a bit of a pushover, as shown by his need to please his father. However, Archie can be stubborn when it comes to his detest of archaeology, to the point of distrusting archaeologists and artifacts in human hands.
Bio: During his school years, Archie's father (famous archaeologist Richard Pendrake) insisted that his son's dreams of becoming a painter were foolish ideas that would lead to a poor life with little income. The young man was unwillingly pushed into studying archaeology and more academic subjects. Archie had always hated his father's line of work. He believes that by investigating ancient ruins sites and relics, archaeologists disturb priceless treasures that should be left untouched. Artefacts have been stolen by archaeologists who take credit for finding them, when the credit should really go to their creators from years ago. Eventually Archie was forced to attend Gressenheller University where he studied archaeology under Professor Layton (this only increased his hatred of the subject).
Likes/ dislikes: Painting, drawing, studying art, observing magnificent views and landscapes, watching the sunrise, pizza/ Dislikes archaeology above all else and has a minor phobia of dirt and dust.
Ambitions: To become a famous artist.
Family: Father-- Richard Pendrake, famous archaeologist and admirer of Professor Layton. Mother-- Akemi Hirota, fashion designer. Several years after Archie was born she left Richard, claiming that he obsessed over his archaeology more than his own family.
Relation to Professor Layton: Student/ Companion
Puzzle pose: Thoughtfully-- "A puzzle isn't always what it seems first at first..."
Correct pose-- (Snaps fingers) "Marvellous! I've worked it out!"
Incorrect pose-- (Sighs) "I can't give up... Maybe I should look at this another way."
Some funs facts about Archie...Archie is my main OC in the Layton Life RP forum. He was originally supposed to be a villain, set on eliminating archaeology from the world and destroying archaeologists like Layton. When creating Archie I may have taken some inspiration from Garry from Ib... His name is painfully obviously derived from his love of ART. And PenDRAKE is kind of an alteration of Arthur PenDRAGON. (Yay for lack of creativity!) Thus far he has made appearances in three of my stories: In some Director's Notes from The Layton, The Witch and The Top Hat, in A Date with Rosetta* from The Woes of Being Rosetta Stone, and in a oneshot titled "Rock N Glamour". Archie could star in future fanfics, possibly as a main character in a Laytonesque mystery story. *Rosetta dragged Archie along on this "date" in an attempt to make Professor Layton jealous. The fiasco left him scarred for life. However, he has more luck in a relationship with Lisa Adamson (an OC belonging to Abitat Eco) later in the Layton Life RP. Its kind of ironic I'd create an artist OC considering I don't have an artistic bone in my body. I can't draw, or paint or anything.
Fanart: As mentioned above, I can't draw, so here's some pictures of Archie from some very talented artists...

I'm kind of sporadic with my updating schedule for my multi-chaptered stories. Usually it depends if I'm in a good mood, or if I'm working around a writer's block. When I'm not focussing on multi-chaptered fics, I often write oneshots to focus on different characters or get my feels out :') Sometimes I'll make attempts at character development for characters that don't get enough appreciation, and other times I'll shamelessly write about my favourite characters/ pairings. Mostly you'll find Professor Layton fics, and maybe an occasional Rhythm Thief fic.
Description: Luke doesn't want to say goodbye to the professor. He wishes he could relive their past adventures... with dire results.
This fic stars Luke as he experiences the 'Peggy Sue' syndrome- basically, where a character relives part of their life. In Luke's case, this is his adventures with the professor. But even with Luke's prior knowledge, the future isn't set in stone.
Current Status: Active. Chapter 18 will hopefully be done soon...ish. Maybe this summer.
Description: Yep, its another adoption AU, folks! What more did you expect? This time set in the Rhythm Thief universe. We have sixteen year old Raphael being taken in by the Vergier family.
Current Status: COMPLETE. (Bonus chapters may or not be included.)
*Bonds Left Unbroken
Description: Glimpses into what life would have been like had they gone together. An AU about the Bronev brothers being adopted together.
Current Status: COMPLETE.
Completed Bonus Episodes: Making Ends Meet (OC-centric, set during Azran Legacy), Ties That Bind (Set after Curious Village), Blessings (Set several years after Lost Future)
In-progress Episodes: Missing Links (Set during Pandora's Box)
Upcoming Episodes: Shackles of the Past (Set during Lost Future), possible as-of-yet untitled episode focussing on the Monte d'Or gang.
*The Archeologist and the Orphan
Description: Following the death of his fiance in an explosion, a twenty- seven- year- old Professor Hershel Layton feels as if everything significant in his life has been ripped away from him. After loosing his parents during the same incident, an ten- year- old Clive is orphaned and taken into care. Both Clive and Layton are left grieving, both of them yearn for a family to call their own. What happens when the professor visits the orphanage and adopts the forlorn boy?
Current status: ?
*Groskettes vs Laytonites
Description: Thanks to his new colleague, Detective Bloom finds himself in the middle of a fan club war...
Current Status: This is my ' PL fandom meta fanfic', with some Hannah/Bloom sprinkled throughout. Updates usually occur when I feel like poking fun at the fandom.
*Living with a Ghost
Another Layton AU- Teen Randall comes back as a ghost and Henry is the only one who can see him... to start with.
Current Status: COMPLETE.
*The Woes of Being Rosetta Stone
Current Status: Updates whenever I feel like it!
Description: Professor Layton gets called to Paris to help catch an infamous rhythm thief. However, it seems that Phantom R may not be the true culprit in this latest case... A Professor Layton/ Rhythm Thief crossover. I was so psyched when they announced there was going to be a PLvPW crossover that I started to read some crossover fics. Rhythm Thief is another favourite game of mine for the 3DS which I thought had a very Layton-esque feel to it, despite it obviously being a rhythm game. It has rhythmic puzzles, cutscenes, charming characters, a heart-warming story and a gripping mystery. I began to imagine what would happen if the RT cast met the PL characters, so I wrote a oneshot that became the multi-chaptered crossover fic.
Current Status: COMPLETE
*The Layton, the Witch and the Top Hat
Description: ...The story begins with the professor's spare top hat, for without it Luke would never have found his way into Larnia, or ever heard of the Dark Witch, or ever have been followed through the wardrobe by Emmy, Clive and Flora. My first big multi-chaptered story. Looking back, I like to think my writing has improved a lot from this fic. But it is a parody and I had a lot of fun writing it.
Current Status: COMPLETE.
*Randall's Road Trip
Description: In which Randall Ascot takes a crazy trip around the country in the "borrowed" Laymobile. Henry and Hershel get dragged along for the ride, a kidnapped Clark is shoved in the boot, and they are joined by some very unwanted stowaways. A pure crack-fic about Randall touring the country with his friends in the Laytonmobile.
Current Status: COMPLETE.
*Emmy Altava: The Eternal Diva
Description: What if Emmy Altava was the one wired up to the Detragon during the events of the Eternal Diva? A young woman willing to risk her life to protect her friends... In some ways, she was similar to Melina Whistler. Perhaps Emmy could be the perfect host to house Melina's memories. (AU.)
