Author has written 4 stories for Clannad, Doctor Who, and Persona Series.
Well, I guess I better fill this in.
I have been heavily reading fanfiction for years, and stories are truly my one great passion in life. My preferred mediums of storytelling are anime and literature. Anime in particular has utterly changed who I am, the most profound change coming from Neon Genesis Evangelion.
My true focus in writing right now, and probably for quite a while, is my story The Hills of Inaba. This story truly is my baby. When I sat down to think through possible fanfic series ideas, because I did want to start something, I eventually got stuck on the premise of plopping Naoto into the protagonist's shoes in Persona 4. I did this because Naoto practically becomes the second in command immediately after joining the Investigation Team, and pretty much leads the actual investigation. Also, I felt like the concept of the Investigation Team being utterly without their badass and indomitable Souji is something that is not really explored anywhere (that I've found). I also wanted to see how an introvert with social anxiety handles being a leader. Naoto's calling card is that she is intelligent and pragmatic, but I would hesitate to call it a "rationalist fic" because I am nowhere near educated enough on all the appropriate topics to hold a candle to the level that Methods of Rationality or Friendship is Optimal put forward with ease. She isn't a super genius, but she is predominantly rational.
This story is pretty marvelous in my head (this is incredibly biased, of course), but putting that onto the page is something of a challenge. Fair warning, I am a very gradual writer. The one writing style that I actually succeed in pulling off is to chip away a small chunk of text every day. It's difficult for me to just throw up words and sort through them later, and this results in me getting stuck on something every so often. I have some perfectionist and procrastinating tendencies that I'm trying to get away from, with limited success. In fact, I'm supposed to be finishing Chapter Two as I'm writing this. Oh well.
I will not promise a quick update rate, but I do promise that an inordinate amount of work goes into each and every chapter. I spend a ton of time working on this. I am quite proud of the plotline I have created, as well as my cherished protagonist.
I can only hope that I can live up to the expectations I hold myself to.
