Author has written 8 stories for Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts/バカとテストと召喚獣 , Shugo Chara!, Kuroshitsuji, Shokugeki no Soma/食戟のソーマ, and Gotham.

Name: Zancrow

Gender: Rated M for Male (but not Mature (not that Manly either))

Likes: High workload means bigger checks, at least.

Dislikes: Missing updated. Yet, I'm very good at it.

Goals: 1 good deed, each day, every day!

Song of the Moment: "Loser" - 3 Doors Down

NOTE: I've been massacred at work; trying to play catch-up now. Nouvelle should be updated in the next couple of days. My apologies for the wait.

Been here in for years, first as a reader (since 2008) then as a writer (2011), posting several stories which have popped into my mind time to time. I tend to focus my writing on details outside of the main canon of the established stories, either focusing on crack pairings or an AU storyline which gives me greater freedom, all the while trying my best to keep everyone In-Character (IC) and the plot faithful to the story's original feel.

As for myself, when I first started on this website I was working part-time as a Busser (table cleaner) for a Chinese-American restaurant (one of my biggest inspirations for my story Nouvelle and the reason I fell in love with the Shokugeki no Soma story). During my time writing fiction, I ended up moving to Nebraska, where I currently reside, and after climbing up the ranks I am currently a General Manager at a franchise-owned restaurant. As such, my updates can be a little tardy at times, but I am focusing on working with a system to remedy that. Currently my focus is on Nouvelle, but I intend to update the others hopefully later this year (2017 as of this writing).

My update schedule for Nouvelle is for an update to be up every three (3) weeks. You can also check my progress on reddit on the Shokugeki no Soma page, where I sometimes post updates and also spend time with the fandom.

Finally, I won't abandon any of my stories, not matter how long it's been since I've updated. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

T.A.R.A. (The Author Rants About):

This is a section that I will include at the end of all my chapters / one-shots, in which I will talk about where I stand against certain arguments, such as pairings, plot devises, fanfics, OCs or the like. Agree / Disagree? Send me a review or comment to let me know! Not featured in all stories.

T.A.R.T. (The Author Responds To):

A new section, where I respond to all the reviews posted during the previous chapter. While I try to respond to my reviews via PM, Anonymous reviews cannot be responded to, so this is where this comes in. A way to say "Thanks!". Not featured in all stories.

1. Us, Romance & A Substitute School? (Baka & Test - Aki/Hime/Shima, Yuuji/Shouko, Hide/Yuuko, Kouta/Aiko)

- And so it begins. It's hell or high water on the Pacific, and only one restaurant can come out on top! But, is this the plot you even care about?

B. Baka & Test: Ask A Baka - Chapter 10: "Final Exam #1" - Expected Update Date: Someday
- Our student body (and others) are asked more questions; but the biggest question of all could might as well be, is there anyone still reading this?
