I do not have the patience to write my own story, so i'll happily stick to leaving my positive feedback, commentary and thoughts on your stories instead!
I LOVE sequels, I especially love finding a story and finding it has PREQUELS that I need to read first to understand the one I found (the longer the better)
I have a serious affinity for long stories, especially multi-part stories (i.e sequels and whatnot)
I am a heavy reader; no amount of updates is ever enough, I am always rereading longer stories just to satisfy myself; as such, I am ALWAYS on the lookout for new stories, so if there's something you want to recommend, go right ahead.
Currently rereading: Haven't been backreading recently...doing waaaaay too much gaming
(check out the authors I list below for some good suggestions)
Fun quotes: "One way to tell the MythBusters have been in the area is to look for shrapnel in nearby trees." - Jamie Hyneman
"I reject your reality and substitute my own." - Adam Savage
If I have followed/favorited your story, I WILL READ EVERY SINGLE CHAPTER YOU WRITE.
If I have followed your story, it means I can't get enough of it, if I favorite it, it means I REALLY can't get enough of your story (I'm hopeless like that)
If I favorite you as an author, that means only 1 thing...your story/stories I follow are my staple, I read everything you write (if im following more than 1) and love it
If I have done all of the above, AND I actually left a review...pat yourself on the back, you have inspired me to post
If you can get me to REPEATEDLY review on a single story of yours...well you should then assume your story RULES (in my opinion ofc)
Whether or not I actually review is debatable (all depends if I can get my thoughts straight)
Stories I read right now: Yu-Gi-Oh 5Ds, Soul Eater, FFXIII, FFXIII-2 (those good ones involving Lightning who's NOT in a relationship with Noel, Hope, or Caius), Bleach
I refuse to remove stories from my following list...I happen to be very lazy when it comes to clearing out dead stories
NOTE TO AUTHORS WHOSE STORIES I FOLLOW: I use FFm to read stories (99% of the time), and the post review button is broken, so 90% of my reviews will come in the form of PMs (not sure this really matters...but just letting you know)
SECONDARY NOTE FOR AUTHORS WHOSE STORIES I REVIEW: I know this will sound funny, but it means something if I get a response to my review (even if it's just "thanks") (especially if you're on my favorites list)
OTHER NOTES: I tend to be a quiet follower unless I feel inspired, but when I leave a review, I tend to go a bit nuts...
I just FINISHED FFXIII-2...OMG...waiting for Lightning Returns now
I am a hopeless addict to FF13 and FF13-2, and when it comes out, will likely also be hooked on Lightning Returns
Found out about FFXIII: Lightning Returns...can't wait xD
FXIII: LR releasing TOMORROW!!!!!!!
FangRai Forever - A site dedicated to FLight..need I say more?
You wanna know how badly I'm addicted to Fanfiction? on this site: 297 stories followed (last number was 307, apparently a bunch got deleted), 71 favorite stories, 19 favorite authors...yea, i'm hopeless like that
Sedor has earned his spot as my 300th followed story on this site with his story Husband to None and Father of One
You don't wanna see me when i'm suffering from Fanfiction withdrawal
Pairings I support:
5D's: YuseixAkiza, JackxCarly (seriously, they're all hopeless around one another, especially Yusei and Akiza)
Soul Eater: Meister/Weapon pairings (for the main 3 pairs) (again, none of them will admit it...but isn't it obvious? (Particularly Maka and Soul)
SteinxMarie: Marie admits Stein is her first crush, and retains feelings for him, and Stein does work well with her (he works well with any weapon, but thats not the point) (seriously how could I forget about these two?)
Bleach: Soi-FongxYoruichi (have you even SEEN Soi-Fong around Yoruichi?) also, can you say OBSESSION with black cats?
IchigoxOrihime (I find I like IchiRuki a LOT more, but I've read some good IchiHime, so i'll leave it here)
IchigoxRukia (they're together like 24/7 and argue like a married couple, how AREN'T they a couple?)
IshidaxOrihime (finding myself supporting this more as I fall out of IchiHime, they do make a good pair)
Read some REALLY good IchigoxYoruichi, IchigoxSoi-Fong, and IchigoxSenna, so I support those too, even though they're somewhat less common
FFXIII: FLight (seriously, Fang teases Light CONSTANTLY and Light doesn't kill her, besides, they both want to protect a sister with their life, doesn't that indicate something?), also Raziel12 has weighed in on this...and I find it about sums up my thoughts on the subject
SerahxSnow (they're engaged/married...any questions?)
Fanille (they've spent their entire lives together (practically), and they worry about each other constantly, what else needs to be said?)
Lanille (Polar Opposites, they're both absurdly nervous about telling each other (Vanille's a nervous wreck around Lightning)...the sisters know whats going on though)
SerahxVanille (Only if Snow isn't around in the given story, they make a cute couple)
HopexVanille (mostly as a secondary pairing...don't read too much of it, but its better than seeing HopexLight >.>)
Inheritance Cycle: EragonxAyra (if you've read the whole series, Paolini makes it pretty clear in the last chapter of Inheritance)
Naruto: NarutoxHinata (she has a MAJOR crush on him, and admits that she loves him at least once)
Megaman: LanxMayl: (don't they just make a cute couple? not to mention they get married (or are at least living together) and have a kid post MMBN6)
MegamanxRoll: (they're basically a reflection of their operators, and Roll makes it fairly evident she has a crush on Megaman anyways (at least in the Battle Network series))
Young Wizards: KitxNita: I think Duane made it pretty damn clear where their relationship stood at the end of WoM
White Rose (Ruby x Weiss) Because (almost) everyone supports it, damn it. (Also the fanart is freaking adorable)
Bumblebee (Blake x Yang) Again, why not? Also the fanart is adorable (again)
Arkos (Juane x Phyrra) Seriously, how was Juane missing the damn signs for so long???
Legend of Korra:
Varrik x Zhu Li - Absolutely, was there any doubt?
Korra x Asami - We watched, we waited...it HAPPENED!!!!!!!!!!!!! 12/22 update: KorrAsami CANON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There are billions more I support, I just don't feel like writing another 200 pages about it
For fans of FFXIII/2 and Bleach: this just came to me the other day, you tell me if you agree: I believe Kuchiki Byakuya and Lightning are very close personality-wise
They both have a younger sister they keep a close eye on, both of them don't like showing their feelings to others, and both of them are very dangerous should you threaten their sister, they are also both scary dangerous when protecting something important to them
Authors you should try:
I'm not gonna tell you anybody is actually the best or anything, just some suggestions from my readings, if you would like specific stories or reasons go ahead and ask me (sections I read are listed above)
Bleach: (big IchiRuki fan if you couldn't tell) Sedor (he actually doesn't write IchiRuki, but his stories are amazing), Captain Hair - can't miss him either IMO, Nathan J Xaxson (amazing series, a must read for IchiRuki) (can't believe I actually forgot about him...), DameM (SIW is an amazing story, (80 chapters to boot), and again, how could I forget such a good story?), Supergirl waiting for Reamonn, Jaydoggg39 (he's one of my new faves in Bleach)
FFXIII: (keep in mind about 90% of FFXIII I read is FLight) Raziel12 (If you like FLight, and haven't read him, you're seriously missing out) (Not to go nuts or anything...but he is AWESOME), LogosMinusPity, Lightningthesky, Prudence Chastity (she just finished S&M...amazing story), Shadoobie, omgwtfdondake (endlessly amusing stories (for me at least))
FFXIII-2: (again, FLight if I can) LogosMinusPity, (any others and you'll have to ask)
(And yes, I really did go through and link EVERY author I mentioned above)
I know I said I wasn't going to play favorites here, but I feel the need to obsess more about how much I love Raziel12's writing
My favorite authors (yes, I know, I said I wouldn't play faves, but I couldn't resist the urge):
Shadoobie: It's hard to explain, but her FLight stories are just so much fun to read!
Raziel12: Can't say enough about him, he writes all FLight, and he never fails to entertain and amuse me, and he's ALWAYS coming up with something new, I always make the time to leave a review (add many more lines of obsession here)
Prudence: Another one hard to describe...she writes FLight, yes, but different (different good), really hard for me to explain, but I love her stories nonetheless, also doesn't hurt that she updates often...which I love might I add
Soul Eater: Gonna have to go with sweetsheart on this one, Stitches is so much fun to read, (besides the fact she's just about the only SE writer I follow on here anymore) (As in, the only regular updater)
Bleach: Sedor, Captain Hair, DameM and Jaydoggg39 I'm only marginally obsessed with them, Sedor's The Red Sun Sets, The Black Sun Rises V2 (Red Sun Sets rewritten) is probably among my favorite Bleach stories of all time, Hair is a close second with both his stories (IchiRuki ftw!), DameM...SIW is one of the LONGEST stories I've read, and it was WORTH IT (80 chapters...and a SEQUEL (doesn't get much better than that)) Jay's first Bleach fic - Trascender left an impression on me, and his second is just as amazing so far
Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's: Elizabeth Kururugi her characters are so much fun (Fish especially), and I just love the stories
Shapesnatch comes in first technically, but for all purposes, its been almost a year since he last updated, Elizabeth is my favorite active 5D's author
And now a bit of a shameless bragging: "Also, an invisible internet hat tip (plus an imaginary cookie) to mcoyne for correctly guessing that I'd give prompt #16 a try." Raziel12 on my correct guess on what Fang-Rai prompt he would fill. (On hindsight, I thought it quite obvious that he'd choose that one)
If you read the authors I've mentioned above and like/love them, please tell them how much you enjoyed their stories, and tell them about the free advertising that led you to them! xD
11/5 I just had the most terrifying moment of my FF life: 243 stories followed...AND NO UPDATES...I laughed...then cried, lol
11/10 I had another terrifying scare...243 stories followed...and only 2 updates! (scary...right?)
1/1/13 (12:37 AM EST) 253 stories followed, and no updates...on my birthday no less! WHAT IS THE WORLD COMING TO?(I honestly laughed, seriously, just my luck)
EDIT: Raziel12 updated on 1/1 (technically) so it's all good
11/18/13: decided to clean up my profile, seeing as it was like 10 pages long
1/11/14: cleaned up profile further
