ADD ME! :D >>> I created a facebook account! Go to this!
My imagination has been a product of watching too much Disney movies in repeat mode.
I used to sneak into the children's section of the library eventhough I was supposed to be in the young adult's section.
I seemed to have an allergic reaction when forced to read the classic novels... I tend to get sleepy and my eyes started to be droopy.
My knowledge for jokes and sarcastic humor is dismal, hence, I could never be a good stand-up comedian, comedy writer or just plain funny.
Reading ebooks in an Ipad is unnerving. And I get sick reading my collection of ebooks in a moving vehicle. So I still stubbornly stick to good-old paperbacks.
I know a lot of people have vitamin deficiency and they go to doctors/health consultants to get prescription vitamins and minerals. I turn yellow if I don't get my weekly dose of brand new books..they're my type of drug. If you are someone who knows how to bottle the smell of brand new books, I'm buying your whole stock.
People tend to buy lots of pens. I buy boxes of colored pencils and sharpen them everyday. I just love their perfection and colors. Of course if you annoy me while i'm in the middle of a deadline, i tend to wield them as daggers.
I used to daydream about Prince William for the longest time. But he lost his hair when before he married Kate. I hope Prince Harry doesn't loose his. He looks hotter than his older brother.
I once got my tongue stuck in the freezer. My cousin dared me to do. And it hurts like hell for weeks.
I'm hooked with: Ouran High School Host Club, Blood, Blood-C, Natsume Yuujinchou, Attack on Titans, Bleach, Beauty is the Beast, Bride of the Water God, Kaichou wa Maid sama, Library Wars, Honey Hunt, Kimi ni todoke, Vampire Knight, Haruka, Beyond the Streams of Time, Vampire Hunter D, Uta no Prince sama, Sukitte Ii na yo, Kamisama Hajimemashita, Horimiya, Keishichou Tokuhanka 007, Hiranuka no Ryuusei
I love books and these are some of my favorites: Practical magic, Harry Potter series, Julie and Julia, All Soul's Trilogy, Whitney My Love, The Summer of the Ubume, Dragon Sword and Wind Child, Greek Myths, The Da Vinci code, Angels and Demons, the Seventh Scroll, The Rule of Four, Garden Spells, Bringing Home the Birkin, Drops of God, Angelology & Angelopolis
I have to warn you, most of my works have lemon-lime themes on them. And I've been dabbling a little bit more into smutty works. So, any kiddies reading my works, please refrain from reading. Don't blame me if something happens after you read my works.. LOL.
Works in Progress:
1. Cecil's Muse (HarukaxTokiya pairing)
This fanfic is on temporary hiatus. I expect to be able to resume writing on this sometime in April or May.
2. Porcelain (HarukaxNatsuki pairing)
I can't wait to continue writing this. It has been too long. This fanfic is on temporary hiatus and will be able to resume updates sometime in April or May, same as Cecil's Muse.
3. Auction -tentative title- (HarukaxMasato pairing)
Haruka was forced to auction her virginity to a brothel. Masato was searching for his brother when he stumbled upon Haruka and bought her. After one night, Haruka disappeared. Three months later, Masato met her again, as his brother's intended bride. But then, Haruka is keeping secrets from him, Masato is determined to find out. This future series will involve a very obsessed Masato Hijirikawa who is determined to make Haruka exclusively his. Outlines have been done, still need some careful editing and chapters need to be written soon.
4. The Young and the Restless
A multi-pairing story featuring Haruka and the men of Uta no Prince sama [Starish, Quartet Night and Heavens]. Outlines has been done, music inspiration playlist is currently being revamped (I need music to inspire me. LOL). The title was inspired by a soap opera popular in the US although my own story would have no relation or similar situations whatsoever. But I am pretty determined to revamp Haruka's personality here, as I always portray her as young, innocent and inexperienced.
Possible pairings will definitely include lime, lemon and smut. I am open for explorations and suggestions from readers. Hope this project would materialize sometime in the future.
5. Candy-Perfumed Girl (title inspired by Madonna's song from her Ray of Light album)
Multi-pairings (HarukaxStarish, HarukaxQuartet Night, HarukaxGakuen Saotome professors). Ahem. I noticed that my readers are always hungry for lemon-lime themes for their favorite pairings. I guess that's because most of the works posted in the Uta Pri category leans more toward Yaoi or Shounen-Ai themes (not surprising because we have such an abundant supply of handsome boys to feed our fangirl fantasies). I was thinking of posting inter-related oneshots in this category heavily laced with lime and lemon for enjoyment of Uta-Pri fans.
6. Sleeping Beauty [title inspired by Emily Browning's indie film]
The most popular boybands have it all: fame, fortune, perks and all the females that they want for their personal harem. But fame has its price, and popularity is a bitch. Starish, Quartet Night and Heavens are all stressed out, losing sleep and energy as they compete with one another. In order to revitalize them and keep their health and work life balance in check, the mysterious Shining Saotome has offered an unusual cure for the hunks: a chance to sleep, cuddle and do all kinds of things perverse in nature to the most beautiful singing idol of them all: Haruka Nanami.
7. Children of Blood
I wanted to do an action-themed or detective themed story on Haruka and Starish. I did some rough outlines, but as with all my other story ideas, it may or may not materialize. Too bad. I sincerely hope I have time to be able to do this.
Some notes on my chapters.
Chapter 1-Coco Chanel Suite photos and article can be found. L'Angle du Faubourg is a real restaurant located at 8th Arrondissement Champs-Elysées, Madeleine. M. Vrinat who also owned the famous Taillevent, an upscale restaurant sought after by diplomats and billionaires, owned it. The L'Angle du Faubourg is a cost-conscious bistro that serves the same menu as Taillevent, only simpler. I've never been there, but someday I will. LOL. For my readers who are going to Paris, their website links can be found .
Chapter 3- Who doesn't want macarons?! I love sweet things! Macarons , yum, yummy! the lovely Kristina has some amazing photos of the sweets.
Chapter 4- I found the most delectable Ren Jinguuji cut scenes from this youtube. Enjoy readers!
Chapter 5- This is what I imagine Haruka would be like while she sleeps. Oren Lavie's lovely video is amazing. Check it out. I would probably write a oneshot with this youtube video inspiration for Haruka next time.
Chapter 8- I love Linda Ronstadt'sof Someone to Watch Over Me that Haruka sang the night Masato first saw her.
Chapter 11- This is the song inspiration for the Duma and Isis. Lovely song from the band Dustz. It's the opening song for Blood C. The youtube video was made from several anime scenes. I do not own it btw.
Chapter 13- Who adores Alexander McQueen? Gosh! I love his dresses, they are out of this world!! I stumbled upon photos from his exhibit at the MET entitled Savage Beauty and most of the dresses that caught my eye, I used them for inspiration for Haruka's dresses in the music video (as she plays Isis). Some of the dresses may not worked out to your liking. But this is what I envisioned as her battle dress.
Chapter 14- Satsuki is super yummy when he show up during the anime don't you think? And I love the color purple on him. So I chose a purple frock for Haruka to wear when he meets her again in one of the sets. The dress is another McQueen creation calledand it has its own inspired music by . For your information Sarabande is actually a dance in a triple meter.
Chapter 17- Haruka was not kidding about her final costume. It was really heavy, and I imagine wearing it myself along with the headdress. Another McQueen ensamble called. Lovely, isn't? Sigh.
Chapter 18- Whew! Four gowns for Haruka. So In case you don't know who sends what here they are:
from Satsuki (Gosh! I love this dress! super dramatic!)
and finally angown from Natsuki.
Chapter 28- Haruka's gown was inspired by Anne Hathaway'sdesigned by Valentino. Loved the red color. Lyrics at first part of the chapter was from a Richard Marx song feat. Lara Fabian entitled . Second part of the lyrics was courtesy of the song by the lovely Ellie Goulding.
There you have it guys! I hope you enjoy looking at some of the links while I work on the upcoming chapters.
My pathetic attempts at making humor and sweet one shots centered around Haruka and her friend Tomochika as they try to deal the attention lavished by our favorite Starish boys at our cute music composer and pianist.
Another series of one shots centered around Haruka and Starish members. One-shots are strictly POVs of Starish members in an alternate setting, exploring the combination of dark themes such as love, romance, innocence, death, obsessions, lust, murder, etc. These are just my experiments influenced by the title itself taken from a song by Nick Cave feat. Kylie Minogue. Readers who wished to see the inspiration for this can visit the video. Not for the faint-heart.
A series of one-shot centered around the handsome and hunky members of Quartet Night. Tomochika Shibuya, Haruka's bestfriend is in for a different kind of teasing, when quartet Night members unexpectedly show their love for desserts and Haruka. Will she ever survive the thrills?
12. Make You Mine

Popular and elusive as air, he contemplates wooing her slowly, taking his time to get to know her more. A story of not a quite old fashioned style of romance and wooing told in bits and pieces. Rating might change in future chapters.

Tonight is the last straw. She'll show them who's boss. But something unexpected happens. HarukaxNatsuki, HarukaxSatsuki. Warning: OOC, swearing, lemon, explicit sex. Shameless smut all the way.
I realized a lot of my Underage Love readers and supporters are craving for some smutty action between the Shinomiya twins and Haruka. Unfortunately, I have not decided whether to include lemon for them in the future chapters, so in order to please the fans and satisfy those cravings this two shot series was born.
This two-shot is dedicated to two very special people: my highschool bestfriend who is on the brink of making a life-changing decision and to Monochrome Blade who always encouraged me to write the best chapters I can churn out from my little grey cells.

Tadah! A one-shot based from a fan request. My apologies for the haste when I made this one. But I could not stop writing when I saw the photo of Tsukimiya ringo and Haruka that a fan sent to me. *wink!* so I decided to finish this one shot and quickly uploaded it. Please check it out and tell me what you think. And I know the links are not working. Someone already pointed it out to me. Sorry. But I'm too lazy today to rectify it. so instead I will just put the links. It's the photo of a rocker chic Haruka Nanami that I really, really adore, I just have to include it inside the one shot. LOL.

GinxMatsumoto implied pairing. Gin's POV. Gin Ichimaru is one of my favorite characters in Bleach. I was really crying so hard when I watched him die in one of its episodes. So I figured why not make another pathetic attempt do a one-shot centered around this strange yet loveable couple?

Gratitude Board: Thanks for all readers and followers who have added my stories in their story alerts and favorite me. As for dear readers who put their time to review my works. Thanks very much. I appreciate it. For guest reviews, as much as I wanted to entertain your questions and comments, I have decided to moderate anonymous reviews as I feel if they have nothing good or productive to say, its better to silence them, rather than seeing their reviews.
Story Updates: I usually try to update at least once or even twice a month if time permits. But with my unpredictable schedule in my work (I work in the field btw in case you were wondering) 8-10 hours of standing up, inspecting works, draft mountain of reports and file paperworks really takes a toll on my energy. And you all know (as writers yourselves) how hard it is to muster up enough energy just to think and elaborate on the outlines further. I would appreciate your encouragement every now and then.
Requests: Any requests for one-shots are moderated and seriously being considered. I am grateful for your consideration of me as an author to write out your fanfiction fantasies and/or specials requests. If you want your requests to materialize, I encourage you to help me stimulate my inactive grey cells by specifying details on your requests: characters, anime, scenario, objects, pairings, even images or photolinks. Nothing gets me more intrigued and excited over key words and ideas. Please do note that anonymous requests will not be entertained. I prioritize fanfiction members who take time to log in and send private messages or reviews. I hope you understand.
I do have some conditions regarding requests, and do forgive this author if you think it's too much, though personally I would think it's FAIR of me to set some stipulations for followers or readers who wanted me to write something for them. I've been meaning to put up these conditions and finally got the time to list them down when a reader posted a PM to me inquiring about requests dedicated to them. So here goes:
* No timeframe or deadlines > I can post the story when I feel like posting it. Creativity in writing must not be rushed. Updates may be given, feel free to send me a PM.
I am not trying to be a professional writer, rather FF is just an outlet for me when I'm stressed or I have new ideas for a story. If I'm not updating as much, it's because I have a life outside FF that I need to prioritize more. Good day everyone!

You may find the links to my profile
All of my smutty works will be locked into the account. You can read certain entries of mine there, but for hardcore stuff, lemon and lime (yeah even those too), I will lock it for member's viewership only. If you are an unregistered visitor who visited my profile AO3 will just reveal the number of works I have which I didn't lock.
Currently these are the works that I locked for member's view only:
Two Bows One Cello
When the Sublime Falls
A Kiss for a Box of Chocolate Pocky
Where the Wild Roses Grow
Meet Me at Four
Future smutty, multi-chapter series will be added on this list once I have uploaded them on AO3. And while you are all waiting for the updates on my ongoing series, you will need to extend your patience a little longer because previous chapters are undergoing slight editing to make them more appropriate for ffdotnet. So for new readers, if you see this:
embedded in the chapters, it means that it has been edited to make it more acceptable for general viewership. I will still leave the M-rating. But in order to view the complete chapters, you will have to register at AO3 and view my works.
I look forward to see you in future chapters.
