Sounds like onomatopoeia. But yes, it's important to know who I am to fully understand my works. Granted, they're all for fun right now but what is there is in accordance with my beliefs. I am a feminist. This means I hold men and women to be equal human beings. I am a woman of color. This means I am non-white. I am part of a minority and therefore see things through a different lens. I am a GLBT ally. This means I fully support gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered people without reservations. If this offends you, please don't tell me. I'm not interested in whether you'd like to willingly oppress your fellow members of society based on what religion tells you or if it just "grosses you out." Stupid people gross me out. I am pro-choice. This means I recognize that not all women are ready or willing to become mothers. I understand that financial restraints, biological complications (making pregnancy fatal), and emotional distress play a very large role in a woman's decision to have a child. It is up to that individual woman alone whether to allow a foreign being to subvert her body's resources for almost a year, wreaking havoc on her body (many women are permanently damaged from this as well as sometimes being unable to handle any more pregnancies or become pregnant ever again). Some of this material is undoubtedly going to be featured in my stories. This is my reality. They say you write what you know and what interests you, so be warned.


Yes I have a motto and it's very important to me personally as it encompasses the whole of my personal and political views.

My rights end where yours begin.

This means that you have rights insofar as they don't infringe on my rights. Once your rights trample mine, it becomes privilege. It works both ways. I can't force any decision on you no matter how much I may want to because my rights end where yours begin.


15.March.2006 - Still working on my epic fanfic. Though can it really be called epic? It's just a very long and (supposedly) action-packed. We'll see if I can manage that, I'm not too confident in my abilities, I haven't written anything in months. Though I have planned out a sequel for my unfinished work, just need to figure out the ending (it had been meant to be based on my own relationship with someone but since that fell through ... I think I have to change some things around)

19.January.2007 - Not technically any closer to finishing my 'epic' (I'd like it to be 'heroic;majestic;impressively great' but it'll probably end up being classified as being 'of unusually great size or extent' instead) but I did have an incredible breakthrough which actually changes the entire plot of the story and enriches the story in a way I was missing - not to mention it drastically changes the sequel as in it's nothing like the way it was originally planned to be. At all.

17.March.2007 - I am still alive! And still writing the TxA stories as well as my 'epic' but somehow time keeps slipping by. I get great ideas but end up writing them weeks or months later if at all. Stupid college applications!

30.September.2007 - For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten fanfiction writer. Yeah that's right, and on the third month I came back, bitches. (Technically it's been longer ... but it loses the punch without the three months) I'm still writing, working on the TxA stories I lost. If you wanna know, read my livejournal. And comment damn it. Friend me? Anything? I hate feeling like I'm talking to myself ... I'm not that crazy yet.

25.October.2007 - So I finished reading Trigun Maximum even after I told myself I wouldn't. Now I have an overwhelming urge to write Trigun fics, which is bad because I'm about halfway done with an Avatar fic (which I just know is going to get pushed aside) and I still have to rewrite my epic. So ... I did what I shouldn't have. I've started the fic. Ideally I'd love to work on all three and finish them as quickly as possible, but I know this won't happen without a beta. Hell, I had only made it 1/4 of the way through the epic because I had a beta who kept tabs on it and demanding new material every time I saw her (hint: we go to school together). So if anybody wants to take pity on me and be my beta I'll gladly take you. Slight warning: I don't just use my betas for proof-reading, if you get involved with this you're in it every step of the way. I have the bad habit of talking over everything at least five times before I actually write it, and then another five times after I've written it. Yes, I'm neurotic. That's nothing new :P

1.December.2007 - I'm 19 now, a year older but not any wiser. Almost done with another TxA oneshot. I'm thinking the epic might never get written. There's just something about pouring yourself into a story for years to just lose it. If I start it up again I don't know that I'll write it all out beforehand again, unless of course I pretend to have a real deadline. My Trigun story has stalled, I can't make heads or tails of it at all - and yet I still know exactly what's going on. I just don't think it's ready to be written yet. I'm also working on some original stuff (what else is new?) and excited because it's going damn well. I think it's the excitement about finally having Squishy (my laptop) that's letting me write. So yeah, expect stuff before winter break even starts!

1.September.2008 - Nearly a year after my last post and still nothing is updated. It's not that I haven't written, it's just that I've lost mostly everything I wrote. (Again.) The dangers of writing things down as opposed to typing them up I guess. Also, my personal life has changed radically. I now have a new romantic partner with whom things seem to be proceeding swimmingly if I may say so myself and it's inspiring me to write more. I've also become increasingly involved in politics and have had a very positive change from this. The world and my interactions within it no longer seem so random, I can see a pattern now. Instead of despairing, I remind myself that I can do something. The first step is to identify the problem. Anyway, hopefully I'll submit a few new stories in the recent future. I continue to remain confused as to how Cycles, most recently published, has the most views but least reviews while Sight Unseen is my least popular story yet has more reviews, favorites, and alerts. (Why the alerts? There won't ever be another chapter people, it stands alone.) Anyway, wev. Off to write more stories I go.

2.September.2009 - Again, everything has been lost. It's getting ridiculous now. A few TxA oneshots that I finished are lost to the world, the Trigun story I was writing (about 1/3 of the way done) is goneee, and the epic? The massive story will probably never see the light of day. I rewrote about 50-70 pages of it and ... you guessed it. Also gone. At this point I'm pretty much scrapping all those ideas. I can't rewrite them without going mad trying to capture the essence that was so damn hard to do the first time. Oh well, new stories will come to me. Lately I've been doing original fiction but maybe fanfiction will inspire me again some day. To all my readers, silent and vocal alike, you're all very lovely and I appreciate the support and kind words I've received over the years. Love you all ~

8.October.2010 - Lately I have felt the urge to write fanfiction so there's a new story out for No Ordinary Family. I can't guarantee I will publish more stories but it is definitely a possibility.

13.September.2011 - Inspiration has struck and I have started a new story in the fairy tales section. It's a retelling of Beauty and the Beast (one of my favorite tales) and will be quite lengthy. I'm excited about it however and can't wait to see how my attempt goes.


Upcoming Stories:

1. Project Youkai: Brace yourselves it's a future!fic. That's right, the Inu gang in the future ... definitely not as pathetic as it sounds. It deals with gene manipulation and stars the secondary and tertiary characters instead of the main troupe. EDIT: The epic is on a lengthy hiatus until I finish the entire manga series. Currently at: 373/558.

2. Aang x Toph oneshots - I have a few ideas for them (and two that are 2/3 of the way done) and I'll probably update them sporadically. I love the ideas but I don't particularly like the way I wrote them. PERMANENT HIATUS.

3. Untitled Trigun story - Nope, I'm not going to give it away. But it is going to be awesome. SCRAPPED.

"What kind of a peace do we seek?

I am talking about a genuine kind of peace-
The kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living-
Not merely peace in our time,
but peace in all time.
Our problems are man-made,
they can be solved by man.
For in the final analysis,
our most basic common link is that we all inhabit
this small planet.
We all breathe the same air.
We all cherish our children's future,
and we are all mortal."
