Poll: Which story would you most like me to continue? (please note the results of this poll may not effect which story I update — but then again it may. Either way it's nice for me to know which story you guys are interested in most) Vote Now!
Author has written 11 stories for Detective Conan/Case Closed, and Magic Kaito/まじっく快斗.
I'll be continuing to go by the name Kaida even though I do not go by that name anywhere anymore. I still really lack a concrete name to use on the internet, and although I do have some that would probably be able to replace Kaida, I think here I'll stick with Kaida. I also want to change my penname but no idea what I would change it to.
If you have anything you wish to say or ask me feel free to PM me about whatever and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
I'm currently obsessing over Detective Conan/Magic Kaito and have been for a while, but I like other manga/animes too.
EX: One Piece, Kuroshitsuji, D. Gray-man, Toradora, Soul Eater, etc (there really is a lot more-I'm just too lazy to type it all)
I also adore Vocaloids-Len&Rin being my favorite.
Oh and in Detective Conan, my favorite character is Kudou Shinichi.
Though I LOVE all the Gosho Boys (and the rest of the DC/MK cast)
And also SPREED THE LOVE FOR HAKUBA SAGURU AROUND!! I feel he gets neglected too much. Poor Saguru...
Nothing important really, and I wont bug about it - but I have a mini rant about name spellings for DCMK characters :
I found that it's extremely common in the fandom to get mixed up on how to spell character's names when they have the 'ou' or just 'o'.
Well, I suppose there really isn't a correct way to write a name in romaji, [I think it's technically debatable] but the way that makes the most sense for me is to put 'ou' if there is 'う' after a letter that ends with 'o'.
--Erk that probably makes no sense but for example Shinich's last name-
I spell it Kudou because if we look at the hiragana it is くどう - く[Ku] ど[Do] う[U]. Kudou Shinichi (工藤 新一/ くどう しんいち).
In the official English translation they spell it Kudo which is probably why there is so much confusion about Shinichi's last name. (Jimmy Kudo) [Excuse me as I shudder why Jimmy Kudo out of all names they could have picked. Jimmy?]
Other names that I can think of that are often confused spelling wise is:
Kuroba Kaito (黒羽 快斗/ くろば かいと) and Kaitou KID (怪盗キッド/ かいとう キッド). Kaitou (怪盗) is just the Japanese word for Phantom thief - Kaito is a Japanese boy name [Yes, Touichi and Chikage actually named their son based off the pronunciation of Phantom thief]
Mouri Kogorou (毛利 小五郎/ もうり こごろう).
Kuroba Touichi (黒羽 盗一/ くろば とういち).
Hondou Eisuke (本堂 瑛祐/ ほんどう えいすけ).
Satou Miwako (佐藤 美和子/ さとう みわこ).
And that's all I can think of at the moment.
If you have any questions about name spellings just send me a PM and I'll be happy to tell you. :)
Oh and it's Magic Kaito Not Magic Kaitou.
That's all I guess. Shimizu-san, I hope you are happy.
Stories I've been thinking about for sometime now. Not sure where they will end up so don't expect them soon. Feel free to drop a line if you would like me to stop being so lazy and work on something that might interest you here. Not saying it'll come out soon even if you do though.
All titles (If the story even has one at the moment) will most likely be changed if I ever do upload the story. I'm bad with titles...
Doppelganger- Kuroba Kaito, as KID, brings down an organization that was toying with the process of cloning. However, the organization already started to make a clone of Kaitou KID. Now Kaito has an incomplete doppelganger on his hands. What does he do with it? Kill it; or try to teach it to live as its own person? Probably will end up KaiShin at some point XD (I guess that would probably count as self-pairing...oh well-It won't be really.) Not really sure who will appear and who won't. Conan won't though. Inspired by the song "Love of Doppelgangers"
Knights(Title Will DEFINITELY Get Changed)- Kaito faces an archer known as Bullet in close hand combat. Even though they both aren't close range fighters, Kaito being a bomber, they are both quite handy with a knife. Kaito loses the fight and is expecting to be killed, like how he should be. But, when Bullet delays his death, protects Kaito's honor, and end up not killing him at all; Kaito cannot help but wonder why. He never thought it would change his view on the war he is fighting as well as reveal secrets that had been hidden from him. Gosho Boys will all appear, no Conan though. KaiShin.
Untitled 1 - Kaitou KID isn't a loved thief, in fact, he is quite hated by almost everyone. When he announced his heists people come just in hopes to see him get caught. When one day Kaito gets shot and ends up in an alleyway badly injured; he thinks that is the end for him. He can feel his life slipping and Jii isn't close enough to reach him in time. However, one detective finds him, and instead of hate, he shows Kaito kindness and sympathy and brings Kaito to his own home to take care of the thief-magician. KaiShin. Not sure who will appear or not. Inspired by a picture I found at one point of another. The one with Kaito as KID in the alleyway with blood on his side in the rain and Shinichi standing over him holding an umbrella. *This might actually come up before the others -Shimizu-san said she was interest in it and so I've been thinking about it often and I got main things planed out-I just need to connect them and a title XD THIS IS NOW A STORY! IT'S CALLED 'HELP' (CREATIVE TITLE I KNOW XD)
Untitled 2- A strange boy transferred into Kaito's class. He looks much like him, though the new kid doesn't act at all like the playful magician. Kaito finds himself interested by the new student, and one day after school Kaito finds out there is more things about the new teen then he could have ever guessed. (Really not sure where this one will end up. So don't expect it to show up before the others-unless something hits me out of no where to put all the parts I have in mind into one story.) KaiShin. Gosho Boys will probably appear.
Untitled 3- Shinichi is considered cursed in the village. Whenever he is around, people end up in misfortune. However, Kaito doesn't think that way. He has met the teen once before, and he doesn't seem like anyone bad. Kaito becomes determined to befriend the supposed cursed teen. KaiShin. Gosho Boys will probably appear. (This one is a bit shaky too.) The basic idea of this has been used a lot so not sure if I'm going to keep with the idea or not.
Well, that's all for now. I have other ideas but they have been done before so much that I'm not going to bother with them unless a really original idea comes to mind.
Though, I'm bad at keeping up with one stories as it is so if I do upload one of these I'll just be worse. XD

Okay, okay. I suppose this is confession time.
Firstly, I do want to make clear that I would love to continue my unfinished works.
However, I'm a bit...embarrassed [?] by them. I suppose the embarrassment is to be expected after nearly four years of maturing, but still. I mean, I haven't changed that much, but just little things like the way I characterized certain characters and just my writing and poor executions in general are painful to look at again. It just all seems so superficial to me now. Especially the characterization.
However, like I said I do want to continue. I've always disliked to allow a project I worked hard on get dumped. You Are Not Alone especially I had a lot planned for. There was a sort of part two of the story that I am unsure if I will still be continuing with, but as of now I think I will continue regardless. I'm just afraid of another years long hiatus interrupting that story again, Which, is also the reason I'm holding off from coming back now. I have two more chapters of You Are Not Alone completed, but it's only two chapters and I want to hold off until I'm sure I won't have to take such a long hiatus again.
I'm also still debating if I want to focus on one story until it's completed or just work on all three unfinished fics at once.
It's sad, because I have at least three more new stories I want to write, but I will not be posting anything new until I'm done with what I have already.
Anyways, that is the latest update from me. I suppose I should delete the previous updates because this is getting rather long...

I'll be changing my pen name sometime soon! Be on lookout for that and sorry in advance for any confusion!
