Author has written 9 stories for Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, and Kuroko no Basuke/黒子のバスケ.
A Little About Me:
To start things off, I'm Aerean!
So, besides writing, I enjoy napping, watching anime, reading manga, playing game systems, along with playing online games. I also have a deep fascination with mythology and the supernatural.
Living in the moment and going by at my own pace is how I've lived so far. I have no ambition in particular and all I want is to live a nice cozy, and comfortable lifestyle. Makeup is icky, my blue bathrobe is fluffy, and I will always and forever love Pokemon. I have a wild imagination that runs in too many directions at once and I'm often told by my friends that they're too afraid to venture into the dark trenches of my mind.
Overall, I'm an easy-going person with an open minded personality who has nerdy dreams of one day playing a virtual reality game, meeting Vic Mignogna, and travelling...if possible.
Now, in terms of Anime and Fanfiction and whatnot...
I mostly enjoy action/adventure, shonen animes...which goes with how I grew up with an older brother who always had me play video games with him. I don't mind romance animes, but I don't watch too much of those. Too much sappiness is...ugh...for me. I tend to steer clear for harem animes...mostly the ones with the girls going after one single boy and he's all to shy and has no backbone and balls to deny the girls who are coming after him. I'm okay with Ecchi animes that have panty flashes and whatnot...as long as it isn't...too much.
I do watch Dubbed anime, but only when I deem the dub good enough in the anime. I watched Big Windup! in english dub and I really like it, so I find myself reluctant to start the second season since Funimation didn't dub it. Other good animes I find the dub awesome in are Gurren Lagann, FMA(B), Code Geass(R2), Hetalia, Hellsing, Ouran High School Host Club, Wolf's Rain, Tiger & Bunny, Rurouni Kenshin, Spice and Wolf...and others. I like watching dubbed animes only when I don't feel like listening to a different language and to lazy to read subtitles.
As for Fanfiction!
A lot of girls on Fanfiction are yaoi fangirls. Well, so am I! But! I'm not a fujoshi. The reason why I fall in love with an Anime is because of what it is. For example, I fell in love Katekyo Hitman Reborn because of the plot, awesome characters, the humor, and all that good stuff! I prefer to keep my yaoi fangirling in the confines of the fandom within Fanfiction. While I love me some delicious boys love, I also enjoy the simplicity of the relationships between the characters. Like how they care for each other because they're friends, teammates, brothers, etc. Seeing how those guys care for each other in a non romantic way is completely refreshing and reading fanfictions with that stuff and sticking to canon is a relief for me away from all the yaoi I read. Of course, I'm open to every girl's view. I just...choose not to say anything in hopes that I don't offend them or anything...because I know how girls can get super defensive when another girl doesn't agree with them.
I think this is something every author should address on their profiles, whether they get views or not in their story(ies) and regardless if anyone is following them like the stalker we all are. So yeah! Every author has their pet peeves. Well, here're mine as an author and/or reader.
1. Grammar: Yeah, not everyone on fanfiction or any other site that allows people to write stuff have English as their primary language. Hell, even I, born and raised in America, tend to make mistakes too! But when you publish a story and you're constantly making mistakes to the point where anyone can barely understand what the hell you're trying to say, it's time to get a Beta Reader. They exist for a reason. They're not there just to help you brainstorm for new ideas or to help you get out of a writer's block. If you send them one of your stories and ask for their opinion, and if English is their Primary language or is good enough that they can actually beta read, then either way, they will catch the mistakes you make and either way, they will correct it and tell you they fixed some things. Because it's their job as a Beta Reader!
2. Naming in AUs: I understand that authors feel the need to change the name of the characters if they're gender bending them to make their names sound more...girly. But, to change their name to the point where their new name has nothing to do with canon name? Yeah. That bothers me. The only two fandoms where I have encountered the protagonist becoming a female are KnB and KHR. I didn't have much of a problem with KHR, considering how the authors either kept the standard 'Tsunayoshi' or changed it relatively close to it, like 'Tsunaruhime' or 'Tsunami'. As long as the name kept 'Tsuna' in it, I was fine with it. In KnB, for 'Tetsuya' the most common fem name for him is 'Tetsuna'. I don't mind that. Personally, if I ever wrote Kuroko as a girl, I would change the 'y' in his name to a 'k', which would make it 'Tetsuka'. But. There's one fic I saw out there where the author changed the name to 'Sakura'. Yeah that irked me. I thought to myself 'What does the name 'Sakura' have to do with 'Tetsuya'?' The author did that to probably keep it in line with the plot she had. So far, I've read 2 fem!Kuroko fics, and the authors changed the name to 'Tamaki' and 'Takara'. I don't mind. For 'Takara' it's 'Our Treasure' and I enjoy how the boys care a lot about her to call her their 'Treasure'. Basically, if you're renaming someone, be sure to stick close to their real name. I'd call 'Tetsuya', 'Tetsuka' as a girl but for 'Tsunayoshi', I keep it at that because I like that name. If you're going to go in, and rename 'Nigou' or 'Number Two' to 'Aoi', I wouldn't call you out on it, but it would bother me because the point of Nigou's name being such is because his eyes are just like Tetsuya's.
3. Formatting: I've read a couple of fics where the format of how authors write their stories irks me. Like, before a flashback scene, they put in Flashback to indicate they're going into a flashback sequence. In my opinion though, doing such a thing takes the flow out of the story. It's like being in a play and reciting what the character has to do before they do it. In this day and age, I think readers on Fanfiction.net have the mind to figure out what is taking place in the story. They know that if you italicize, you're either writing in the character's thoughts or going into Flashbacks. It depends on where you put in italics that allows the reader to figure out what exactly they're reading.
4. Summaries: The 'I suck at summaries' bit or the 'Please ignore the lame title' will get me to scroll past your story. If you also write in your 'summaries', 'Please Read' or information that has absolutely nothing to do with a damn summary, don't write it! A summary is a brief overview of what your story is going to be about. Hell, if you have trouble thinking up a proper summary, just get a small script from your story and copy and paste it onto there. Readers want to a freaking summary before clicking onto a story and if all you include are just random facts about it's your first story and whatnot, they're not going to click on it. That's what Author's Notes are for.
5. Unnecessary Criticizing and Flaming: Constructive Criticism is something every author wouldn't mind reading, seeing as how those kinds of advice can help improve them as a writer. Just like in The Voice USA, Blake Shelton gave Garrett Gardner some advice on what he should work on as a singer. The next year, Garrett got the opportunity to come back, sing again, and landed a position on Shakira's team. All because of the constructive criticism Blake gave him that improved him as a singer. However! Writing a 'review' and saying shit like 'Your story sucks' along with baseless trolling is crossing the line. I'll elaborate on this crap later.
6. Japanese: Seeing people use Japanese in their fics don't really bother me...much. But if you plan on using some Japanese in your stories, be sure to do your research. If you watched enough animes in Japanese to understand what a word means, then you're probably good to go. However, what I don't like is how people switch from using English sentences to Japanese sentences in their stories. An example?
"Sore wa nan desu ka, okaasan?"
"Oh. I didn't know you were there."
"Don't worry about it sweetheart, Okaasan just misses Otosan a little bit."
"Really, there's nothing to worry about." Tabun.
Really, that irks me. It's nice you know your Japanese, but other people don't know. Authors leave translations at the end of a story or chapter, and I don't think the reader will interrupt themselves from reading just to scroll down to read the translation and then scroll back up, only to see another word they don't know, only to scroll back down and well...I'd probably be irritated. I'm just lucky that I've watched enough Anime with subtitles to know what those words mean. If you're writing for a Japanese anime, then it's obvious that even though it's all in English in the story, the language they're actually speaking is Japanese. Switching from Japanese sentences to English sentences like that disrupts the flow of the story...for me at least. Keeping with the standard 'name calling' like 'Onee-Chan', 'Nii-San', 'Otou-San' and the like are okay, since the characters are Japanese and it's fine to stick with their culture like that. Kyoko isn't going to start calling her brother by his name when she's always called him 'Onii-Chan'. It's in her character. Also adding in '-san', '-chan', '-kun' and etc. are fine too...as long as it sticks with the character's...character. Like...it's Kuroko's nature to be polite and he's not going to start calling everyone casually without any honorifics. He'll keep calling Kagami 'Kagami-kun' and Momoi as 'Momoi-san'. Either way, I think Kuroko will always keep the honorifics going, since it's who he is. Well, like I said, if you're going to use Japanese such as honorifics in your fics, do your research first! There's no shame in trying to find out what you don't know about!
7. Keeping in Character & Word Choice: Every author has their style. Some uses complex vocabulary, some likes to keep it all nice and simple. It's the way they write, after all. What irks me though, is how writers incorporate their style of writing into a character. For example, say an author likes to use the world 'Whilst' instead of 'While'. And while they're writing a dialogue for Aomine, they put in 'whilst' instead of 'while'. Honestly, I don't think Aomine's vocabulary is complex enough to use such a word when he's talking. I mean, if it was Akashi, then there's a chance that he may say that word But Ahomine? I don't think so. If you're writing dialogue or exposition for a character, be sure to keep it in the confines of who the character really is. Aomine is the type to cuss and say such crude words while Akashi has a much more broader vocabulary than him and is more of the type to elegantly insult someone.
8. OCs: Mm...I don't mind OCs per se... Only when they're there to help with the flow of the story...as supporting characters. ONLY. I avoid stories that are OCxCanon characters like the plague. Why? Because it's all the same. Some random chick shows up out of no where and the love interest immediately takes an interest in her and finds her intriguing and while he's trying to get her, she's being all reluctant and tsundere about it. It's annoying and it's become cliche. I'll come to love an OC if they're supporting characters. Like in Afraid to Love You, Svi is an OC character but he's there to help out and move the story along, along with the OC Underbosses in that story. Yes, I've read the Flames and Family series and I love it. I know there're a bunch of OCs in the entire series, but the series are all Tsuna-centric, and they're there to just support Tsuna in his adventures. Yes, Tsuna and an OC of the author's got together in the 4th one...but that OC was a wonderful supporting character to Tsuna and his development in the early chapters of that story. Basically, stories revolving around the OC is a big no no for me. But stories with OCs as supporting characters are fine.
9. Inconsideration: People need to realize that FF.net is an online site. Authors don't spend every waking moment of their lives on here. They have a life outside of writing and it's important that they give reality the attention it needs. In reviews, I've seen reviewers demand for an update and all that, even disregarding any notes the authors leave in their stories or on their profiles. People need to be considerate of others because writing may not be their only obsession and/or reality is calling for attention. The best a reviewer can do to support the author is to let them know that they'll always be waiting for the next update and to give luck to the author with whatever they're doing in real life and support them.

Just needed Claves but I got completely lost in the Mysterious Unison. Got this game again for the PS3 and now that the achievements are no longer there, I lost motivation. I'll get to playing eventually. I still wanna fight Frederic.
Final Fantasy XIII - I don't care what haters say about this game. I absolutely loved this one! Kind of psyched about the new Lightning Returns one!
