Author has written 11 stories for Pokémon.
R. A. I. N. E.
- Contestshipping is my favorite ship. I will go down with this ship.
- Leafgreenshipping (or ORS, whichever) is pretty cool too. Although it sort of isn't set in stone since you can actually mold Leaf to any type of character. That is, if you're using the anime Gary and the non-existent Leaf! (So no, you can't really say you've got Leaf's personality wrong...)
- I really wish Drew and Gary were real people. I'd marry them.
- The stories I write will probably be about those two shippings. Probably more of the first one though, since I'm more comfortable writing for them. I'll try my hand with other ships too!
- I do believe in Pokeshipping though.
- I don't know who I ship with Dawn... Paul is okay because of the opposites attract thing, Kenny is too because of this friendship thinngy and the Piplup evolutions which I find cute, and I'm okay with Ash (although I strongly believe he belongs with Misty...). It's a battle between Paul and Kenny and I just can't decide!
ON PRINCE OF TENNIS
- Prince of Tennis is cool. Honestly, what kind of person can think of those cool-ass tennis tricks?? And I'm not even a fan of normal tennis!
- I don't actually write for PoT. I prefer reading. I can't really tell if a character is still in-character in this fandom because they focus primarily on a select schools. To me, the characters are malleable.
- Shishido is a hottie.
- Marui is a cutie patootie genius.
- Atobe is... Atobe. No words needed.
- And Kirihara. Wow that kid.
- I know the manga, but not the anime. Therefore, I do not know what kind of characterization to give characters whose schools aren't the main focus of the manga.
- I'm not really a fan of romance pairings between PoT characters, but friendship ones between the guys are great.
- KiriAn is an exception.
ON CARDCAPTOR SAKURA
- This is my childhood right here. RIGHT HERE.
- I thought Syaoran was hot. When I was ten. But I still think he's is in Reservoir Chronicles: Tsubasa.
- I love the manga and the anime. But I don't really remember that much of the anime :o
- I only realized recently that Touya and Yuki were pretty much in love with each other...
ON OTHER STUFF
- I like the names Elsie and Lorraine, hence the reason I used them as my username. They are not, and nowhere near, my actual names.
- I like writing. And math. They're fun, contrary to popular belief.
- I'm Asian. I speak two languages, but, believe it or not, English was my first. I learnt the other one along the way. I want to try writing in the other language, but I'll see if I'll be able to!
ON MY STORIES
When the Sun Sets I needed my Contestshipping fix and I'm finally on break from all my classes that I have nothing to do (except, of course, write). I'm currently back from the dead until January! I'm not really sure what the inspiration of the story was, but I know it just really goes back to the thought that May and Drew would be really cute and touchy and personal when they're alone together.
In the Event of a Broken Heart - I'm trying to do this thing that I tackle on many non-canon pairings/friendships/ etc. It's nice to experiment on things that could've happened. This isn't really a Belleshipping romance story. I couldn't do a romantic non-Contestshipping story if Drew (or May, really) is involved. Haha! I tried to show Dawn and Drew's relationship as I'd like to have seen it in the anime, if we were given the chance to witness that.
X - This actually stemmed out from the fact that I think Drew and Gary would be some sort of best frenemies if they'd met in the series. To an extent, they're very similar to each other that sometimes similarities cause people to clash with each other. However, at the end of the day, they'd still make good friends, who'd laugh around and joke around with each other but who'd be there supporting each other.
How Do You Quantify Perfection - I wrote this because I was frustrated with the grading scheme used in subjects like English, Philosophy, and the like. I get how you'd grade things that have quantifiable answers (such as Maths, Science, Statistics), but I'd never, for the life of me, understand how grading is done for subjects that warrant opinions and reflections.
Between the Lines - If there was a book genre I'd willingly buy, it'd be war. I like reading about personal stories from people who've experienced war. I'm not as interested in the war action, but more of the personal and private sides of war. This story isn't going to be based much on the action, but on the relationships they guys form in being part of the war.
Our Last Summer - I entered into a phase where I was just reading high school-based fanfics, so I tried writing one. It must have been because I missed they easy high school ways of life. College is just too exhausting. Anyway, I'm debating on whether I should continue this story or not. I'm leaning towards the latter...
Ten Years - I got pretty sick of the fanfics that portrayed Gary as a player. I mean, sure in the anime, Gary was seen travelling around with his group of cheerleaders, but we also see in the anime that he's matured enough to become a research assistant (or whatever he is right now). I'd like to believe that after n years, Gary was able to become a mature adult.
The List and Spectator - These two are sort of character analyses (for the lack of a better word, haha) of May and Drew. Again, we can't expect that their grown up selves would be exactly the same as their childhood selves. That's very unrealistic, and many people tend to forget that. I think it's pretty okay for writers to play around with characteristics and personalities of characters, especially when dealing with older, more mature versions of these characters. It was in these two stories that I was able to do that for the Contestshipping pair.
Congratulations and That Thing You Do - My earlier stories revolved around being cheesy. They were influenced by a lot of the stuff I read from this site at the time. Cheesy fanfics rubbed off on me.
Hello there, beautiful people of FanFiction.net! It was nice seeing you :)
