I'm going to be starting a new SYOC story soon, once again in the HOTD section, called Trust - it will, essentially, be like Instinct and Survival, in a sense that it'll gradually build up and end on either good terms or bad terms, depending on how it goes and the relationships of the characters. I'll be putting up the prologue soon and leaving the profile (and my character's info) template at the end of my profile page. It'll sit for a while, that way I can get some characters in to decide on, and I'll be updating after Survival has run its course. For any reading Survival, you'll know that it isn't far off (pretty much six chapters left, including the epilogue), so I'll be posting Trust as just the prologue for now. If you want to check it out, have a taste of the summary:
Trust can be either handy or dangerous, given the circumstances. You can either trust someone with your life to get out of something alive, or you can hold zero trust for someone your instincts deem dangerous. But what if you're forced to trust someone? What if unforeseen events force people who would otherwise go it solo into a group where trust is key?
I look forward to the characters I'll be seeing, and I hope Trust takes off without a hitch. Form is at the bottom of the page, and I hope to see some doozies!
Name: Miki/Rhiannan, take your pick
Age: 16 as of June 2013
I am: A girl
I am (more specifically): A girl that likes to read, write, and be a nerd and otaku (and be proud of it :D)
- displays updates on chapters and asks relating to characters/plot/anything you can think of. Spoilers will be tagged and put under a read more, so have no fear if you don't want to have anything spoiled :)
Link to my Instinct tag on tumblr - coming soon
Okay, so, hi, I'm Miki and I'm a massive Homestuck fan who writes zombie stories most of the time!
From what you can see, if you've been to this neck of the woods before, I've changed my profile a bit. Okay, a lot.
So, pretty much this is just where I do majority of my writing that isn't Hetalia or Homestuck (or Pack Life, but hey I don't think original stories count here haha). I'm active a lot on tumblr and AO3, and I usually update my stories here once a month or every few months, depending on the time I have on my hands. My biggest stories are Survival, Instinct, and Love Me, with Wastelands slowly coming up with them as well. They're my main three that I want to finish before anything, and I hope to get a sequel out for at least Instinct or Survival.

To everyone reading Survival (spoilers are underlined):
Big things are going to happen - big on a scale of "I've written a rough draft of an ending for one of my friends and pretty much changed her perspective of things and now have her saying 'please let someone live' whenever I say I want to plan the end of something".
It's gonna get that big, guys. Hope you're ready for the ride, cuz we ain't stopping for a break once it starts.
I'm also kinda amused by the lil' rivalry going on between two readers there, and I'm gonna say this once to all of you: Pick a character you like and stick with them, because there will be revelations some of you won't see coming. There's a damn good reason we're going to M for cursing and gore, guys.
All in all, though, I do hope I can bring it up to get a sequel - probably called "Alone" or something, I don't know. Because I don't think any of you will be happy with how open I leave the ending for interpretation and panic over a character, especially one you guys all seem to enjoy. But hey, if I don't end up writing one, then that's that. We're left with what we've got - a simple ending some of you won't be too happy with.
And we've got ships. Oh yes, ships. I believe we've got a Maria (Mei and Aria) shipper and a Robertia (Roberto and Aria) shipper so far, but I am curious as to what anyone else is hoping to see.
To everyone reading Instinct (spoilers underlined):
Big things are happening here, too, but not exactly on a scale that Survival's on. I've yet to plan out an official ending for it, and I still need to familiarise myself with the characters, but we're still going to have big things happen.
This is the story a friend of mine asked for me to let people live to the ending. I said I'd consider it. So you guys better prepare yourselves for this one too. This one might go up to M, but considering we don't have Mei in it (or any other overly violent OCs, actually), I don't think it'd be likely until the big event.
Once again, pick your favourite character and stick with them - it'll be a big up and down ride that will probably go wrong, knowing my streak. If I don't end up making a sequel to Survival, I might consider one for Instinct - probably named "Run Away"? That's still in consideration.
Not much else to say here that's spoilers, and I'll just now point out that I haven't gotten all character questions back yet - this means that I'll be going by my assumptions of those characters' thoughts and reactions based on what I know about them so far, and I may get a few actions incorrect. And that's about it for now.
1. Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18 and find line 4:
...road. She watched him drive away, stayed there for a few...
2. Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What do you reach?
The junk on the left of my bed. (Books. Kindle. Tic Tac bo- Aw, it's empty)
3. What is the last thing you watched on TV?
I think it was either Adventure Time or Ben10: Ultimate Alien. At, like, ten this morning. Either that, or I attempted to watch something and ended up ignoring it...
4. Without looking, guess what time it is:
5. Now look at the clock. What is the actual time?
12:05 am (Holy crap, time flies!)
6. With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?
The TV through the door, my step-dad laughing, my stomach grumbling
7. When did you last step outside? What were you doing?
At noon to go home. I was staying the night at a friend's place and ended up leaving at twelve.
8. Before you started this survey, what did you look at?
Quotev stats. I like knowing if anyone's on. (Not really, I was haunting Habbo.)
9. What are you wearing?
PJ's. Pink nightie with silver pants. All I'm tellin'.
10. Did you dream last night?
I don't even know, man - I fell asleep reading Davekat, so it's all depending on my state of awareness before crashing. I'm leaning towards no, though...
11. When did you last laugh?
Today or last night. Last night because Zharza and I were doing shenanigans on Habbo, and this morning because I feel like I laughed at some point...
12. What are on the walls of the room you are in?
Weird posters, drawings, dream catcher, Geelong Cats poster, Geelong Cats clock (need to get that fixed...)

15. What is the last film you saw?
Does glancing at Ant Bully before haunting tumblr count?
16. If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy?
A better house, a better computer (I'm sorry Schlovan, but you're terrible), more books, cosplay stuff, other shit I want but can't list at the moment

Whispers* I paint my nails certain colours, then claim to have maimed a troll to paint them with their blood (ʘ‿ʘ)
18. If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?
Abolish the idea of twerking. Execute everyone who does it. Do the same for YOLO and swag and all those other useless (shitty) words. While I'm at it, destroy the Blurred Lines music video. Honestly, Robin, it's disgusting.

20. George Bush:
21. Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her?
22. Imagine your first child is a boy, what do you call him?

Unless "abroad" translates to "any fandom you desire", I'm quite cozy in my house. (Unless you're taking me to England. Please, take me to England TTTT)
24. What do you want God to say to you when you reach the Pearly Gates?
"YEA- Oh wait I'm dead..."
"It's still canon."
Trust Character Form/Chie Information
Name: Chie Fujisaki
D.O.B. (Set in early 2014 oh goodie): 19th July
Skin colour: Fair
Eye colour: Dark brown, almost black
Eye shape: Wide - a trait from her mother's side
Hair colour: Dyed-green
Hair style: Short at the back, rather fluffly and easily messed up, with a jaw-length fringe that's held back by a headband
Primary clothing: Red plaid flannel shirt (unbuttoned), white tank top underneath, with a pair of dark denim shorts, and a pair of brown Roman sandals. Has a pair of aviator sunglasses handing from her tank top's collar, and will occasionally wear them over her eyes or to hold her fringe back
Second clothing (if character changes clothing at any point): Pretty much just switches the flannel shirt for a grey jacket and replaces the sandals with black Converse shoes.
Tattoos/Piercings/Markings/Etc.: Two piercings: An eyebrow piercing on her left eyebrow, and a lip piercing (electric yellow in colour) on her lower lip, right side. A noticeable scar on her left leg from when she broke it at age twelve, and a birthmark on her wrist that is often mistaken for a scar.
Height: Around 5'7
Body type: Between athletic and slender
Basic Info -
Personality: Often mistaken for being a bitch, Chie is the passive-aggressive manipulator who dreams of making it big in the underground information broker world. She keeps to herself a lot, disregarding human contact as "tedious" on a good day, and generally dabbles in activities that rid her of boredom - specifically P.E. activities and wandering around, with the occasional day of reading and watching movies. She's earned the nickname "Scout" from one of her classmate's forgetting her name when describing her, saying, "Y'know, the girl who acts like a scout and gives out information?" when describing her once - it stuck, and eventually she began to accept it as her nickname around the school. She's quiet and observant, views herself as being superior in a subtle way, but otherwise doesn't hint at doing much else than watching and waiting. She does have a streak of narcissism, saying that she doesn't just like herself, she loves herself, and that her apparently "off-putting" personality is her most likely cause for the lack of confessions throughout her years in school - which, she adds, is "their loss".
While she does act tough a lot of the time, deep down Chie is rather fragile. She's easily stressed, with only distracting activities to calm her, and very rarely has someone to vent to about her troubles. After a period of time she will break down and take a step back, practically disappearing off of the face of the earth for days at a time. She'll seemingly reappear out of nowhere once more, bringing with her more information, and will resume "business" as usual. She often jokes about her life's ambition being ruling the world and renaming all of the countries, but always corrects herself with a serious tone saying that she really wants to have an entire underground network within the palm of her hand by the time she's forty. People tend to not argue with that, considering that she was the one who had started a war in the girl's bathroom, solely from the shadows.
A lot of what Chie says that isn't information, however, tends to go disregarded. She isn't adverse to lying, cheating, and letting people around her gamble on her information, and has scammed quite a few students who've crossed her into paying money for flimsy information. She tries her best not to be biased, though, and even makes an effort not to judge - just make notes.
Background: She comes from what she can only describe as a "toxic" family, always pointing out the faults in her parents' methods of upbringing and even picking out what they could've done better. She lived a fairly average life, even when her brother was born, but had to sit through countless arguments her parents had over how their children were going to be raised. It was always a conflict between "worrywart" mother, Kyoko, and "tough it out" father, Isamu. She lived in Tokonosu up until the age of seven and moved to Alaska with her parents, living there for a good nine years before she suddenly broke down from the stress her parents put on her with their constant arguments. She moved back to Tokonosu before she was seventeen, moving in with her aunt, Hitomi, and began her "refreshed" life from there.
- Mother: Kyoko Fujisaki, 40, often described as an overly-cautious, jittery worrywart. Currently lives in Alaska.
- Father: Isamu Fujisaki, 43, described as being overbearing and difficult, and is disliked in Chie's opinion. Currently lives in Tokonosu with Akira in his custody
- Brother: Akira Fujisaki, 6, is a sweetie "but also a brat, most of the time". Lives with his father in Tokonosu, but visits his mother every two weeks.
- Aunt: Hitomi Kishitani, 37, works as a chef in a well-paying restaurant. Has been Chie's guardian for little over a year, and has a fairly stable relationship with her.
Occupation: High school student. Unofficial "high school information broker" - even going so far to charge money for certain students
Likes: Reading, wandering, P.E., observing, movies
Dislikes: Being lactose intolerant, assumptions made about her, her family, certain people at her school, puns
Strengths: Athletic skills, observant, eidetic memory, information gathering
Weaknesses: Sharing said information, can't run around too much without her leg cramping up, tends to get a bit cocky, has a difficult time trusting and opening up to other people, doesn't particularly know how to "play nice", tends to wander off on her own
Habits: Wandering off on her own, ignoring people, boasting, holding back information for prices, scolding people for not covering their mouths when they sneeze/cough
Redeeming feature: Observation skills and eidetic memory
Forfeiting feature (their downfall): Terrible with people and never works well with others
Life goals prior to Outbreak: "My most cherished fantasy is becoming Izaya Orihara. That right there is where the life goals lie." She tries, honest. At most, when she lowers her expectations for herself, she sets herself the goal of making a living through information networks - however, she hasn't really planned the part where she requires actually talking to people and getting buddy-buddy with them in order to get info.
Initial/Starting weapon(s): Fire extinguisher
Main weapon(s): Golf club
Secondary weapon(s): Trades the golf club for a baseball bat
Most likely quote/something they'd be remembered for saying: Any variation of the words "I don't care"
Sexuality: Demiromantic - she's an asexual who is attracted to anyone she makes a close bond with (haha have fun with that), but only romantically.
Love interest: "No. Gross. Shut up." Anyone who can pretty much bond with her, and then delve deeper into that bond. Don't go expecting much, though.
Thoughts on new people: She'll make as many observations as possible and then just begin to associate them with everyone else. In other words, she won't care, won't want to get involved, and will only be interested if she can show off her abilities and charge money for information.
Thoughts on the Outbreak: Tedious. Meticulous. Disrupting. Absolutely no respect for the business she runs.
Thoughts on Chie: She loves herself too much, and seems to be convinced she is the very definition of "boss ass bitch". That is far from the truth. So very, very far. Still. She has high hopes for herself and won't let anyone get in the way.
Most likely position in the group: Scout/informant
