Hi! My name is Aurora (as you might have guessed, and it is my birth name) and I'm from Minnesota. I'm 25 years old now and work full time. I've always done really well with spelling and grammar, so that won't be a problem, at least! Hopefully, my story ideas are decent enough, too.
I don't write about sex. I write about other people reacting to people having sex. The "Birthday Stories," as I've come to refer to them as, and others like that, will be the closest I get to lemons. Maybe. I'm not actually sure yet, but I don't think they're for me.
What do I love? Many things. Anime (but this should be obvious), British sitcoms, books (novels and manga), movies, learning new things, music, hearing other languages, writing (I have about 50 notebooks half filled with ideas) and perhaps most importantly, love itself. I know it's cliché, but love really is what makes life worth living. All four loves are important.
Is there anything I don't like? Well, yes. The phrase "how come," bad grammar in stories (when it's not in dialogue or not for general effect, ex. Huck Finn, exceptions will be granted for non-English natives), clowns, and ventriloquist dummies. Especially the last two. I hate those things. Oh, and mpreg. I think John Cleese said it best, "Where's the fetus going to gestate? You going to keep it in a box?"
Will come up with a favorite quotes list when I stop being so lazy.
It would be impossible to name all my favorite ships because I have way too many. It would mostly be yaoi, but het and yuri would not be completely absent. I kind of segregate my yaoi and het shows. For example, Hetalia is a yaoi show (except where Austria and Hungary is concerned) and One Piece is a hetero show (except for Sanji and Ace, sometimes. I also like Sanji and Vivi as a couple). The only yuri-exclusive (or close enough) series I've come across are Sailor Moon (minus Usagi and Mamoru) and Lucky Star (because there are no boys). I would like to write some het and yuri someday, but I don't have any good ideas for either as of yet.
Have you ever read any of my stories and wondered: "how the fuck did she come up with that?" Fear not, for that is all about to be revealed.
Misconceptions (KHR, 5927) I just thought it would be funny to have Tsuna ask Kyoko out, and then have her turn him down. Because she thought he was gay. Because Gokudera told her they were boyfriends. But the real reason is that Kyoko is probably a lesbian. For some reason, this is hilarious to me.
Honey Plushies (Ouran, Mori/Kyouya) Honestly, I just wanted to read stories about Mori and Kyouya being bros and not gay. But then I read a story where they were, and now I ship it. *starts singing Dido's "White Flag"* If you want to read it, it's "An Overlap of Coincidence" by Dracoqueen22. The story itself was inspired by J. Michael Tatum and Monica Rial's commentary on episode 4, but I mentioned that.
Mori's Birthday (Ouran, MoriKyouya) Originally going to be a birthday present to myself, where the host club has a movie day at Kyouya's house and Mori needed help "finding the bathroom." Kyouya helps him, and their moans are almost louder than the movie everyone else is trying to watch. I was surprised that no one got mad at me for that joke at the end, where Haruhi says that her mom probably heard the sexytime, because her mom is dead and that joke is completely tasteless. Alt title on AO3 is "Ride the Pony," which I believe is from Ginuwine, but I heard the version by Far in a yaoi MEP.
Germany Dials the Swearing Hotline (Hetalia, GerIta) I heard about the hotline from The Bugle, an amazing podcast that everyone should listen to. It's on iTunes. #savethebugle Germany calls, gets to release some steam, finds out he and Italy are in love, and reduces a lot more steam. Wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more, and I love you if you understood that. Has 100 kudos on AO3.
Kyouya's Birthday (Ouran, MoKyo) I just felt it needed a sequel, telling of the "fallout" after last time. Alt title on AO3 is "Hot Cops," referring to the male stripper troupe from Arrested Development. Again, I love you if you understood that.
One Choice Changes Everything (Hetalia, Spamano) The guy I wrote this about is one that I never wish to see again, but that is not important now. The point is that I ultimately do not regret the relationship, even if he claimed in a text message that he was too lazy to take me out, but not too lazy to move about 200 miles to be with some girl he barely knew. I'm not bitter! Update: He's now trying to get back with me. I ignored it.
You're What She Came For (Hetalia, Fem!USUK) I wanted to try lesbians. 99% sure this'll be my last Hetalia story, I'm just not really into it anymore. Title from Franz Ferdinand.
We Are Now Boyfriends (Kuroko no Basuke, Kagami/Kuroko) Came to see why they paired the giant redhead with forked eyebrows with the tiny blue haired kid, stayed for almost everyone else (except Haizaki and Hanamiya). Definitely a turning point, where I switched from Hetalia to sports anime.
The Story of Us (Free!, Makoto/Haruka, Nagisa/Rei, Rin/Nitori) I wanted to do something with a revolving point of view, and Free has the right amount, I think. Did a sequel after season 2 was over. The title is from Lady Gaga by the way (from Lovegame,) not from Taylor Swift.
See You Next Week! (KNB, too many ships) I looked to see if there was anyone who had done anything with the end cards, and it didn't look like it, so I decided to fill the void. Hopefully it's filled in a good way! Season 2 and 3 are done now, too! Favorite stories are the ones with Aomine narrating, thinking all these ridiculous lines, not knowing that on the other side of the keyboard, I'm laughing my ass off.
Subterranean Homesick Blues (Tsuritama, Akira/Natsuki) There's not enough of it out there. I think I'd sell a limb to get another season of the show, or even a different anime with all of the boys' VAs (Miyu Irino, Ryota Osaka, Kouki Uchiyama, Tomokazu Sugita and Takahiro Sakurai.) Haikyuu! and Daiya no Ace have four each (Haikyuu doesn't have Sugita/Akira, and DnA is missing Irino/Haru). Title from Bob Dylan.
I Love You, Moron (Kuroko's Basketball, Aomine/Kise) One of the stories from SYNW had Aomine and Kise as a couple with obscure references as to how they reached that point. This is mostly expanding on that, as well as giving Kasamatsu a chance to show his nice side for a change.
Nothing to Lose (Free!, Makoto/Haruka, Sousuke/Rin) Since the end of season 2 showed everyone in college, I expanded on that. Rin and Sousuke are establishing their relationship, while Makoto and Haru realize there are things they've kept from each other. Title from Gaga this time too, this time from "Alejandro."
Love and Basketball (Kuroko's Basketball, too many ships) Season 2 of end card stories. I think my favorite story is the ImaHana one, because I just love Hanamiya trying to act tough in front of his team, and Imayoshi's all, "where's the little flower who asks me to punish him?" Title is from a movie I still haven't watched, even though I bought it months ago.
Space Oddity (Tsuritama, Yuki/Haru) I really loved Subterranean Homesick Blues, so it felt like any companion pieces I ever wrote for it would never be good enough. I feel like I did okay, though. I love the idea of Yuki going to France, probably for the first time, to see the place where his grandmother grew up. And Haru comes along, because he felt like it.
We're Best Together (Kuroko's Basketball, Midorima/Takao) I'd been looking for inspiration for a MidoTaka fic all summer, and I finally found a Tumblr post about what the signs really want or something. Cancer daydreams about living with their crush every night, and it escalated from there. Miyaji shows up too, because I love him.
A Murder in Love (Haikyuu!, DaiSuga, AsaNoya, KiyoYachi, TsukkiYama, KageHina) I watched Haikyuu! after the first season ended, and I fell in love with it. All the characters are amazing, no exceptions. I have a sequel planned with non-Karasuno characters for fall 2016. Has over 100 kudos on AO3.
Basketball Season (Kuroko's Basketball, too many ships) Fun fact: since the stories went from December 1 to April, I had an event on December 1, 2015 saved in my phone calendar as "Basketball Season," which ended up being the title. My favorite chapter is where Akashi is trying to claim that Kuroko needs his permission to date Kagami, and Kuroko, in what is a giant middle finger to the Generation of Miracles, calls Nijimura. I love all of the Miracles, but I have distinct funny voices for all five of them.
B-Sides (Kuroko's Basketball) All the stuff that never came up in the end cards. Wakamatsu and Sakurai are seriously adorable, and I couldn't handle it anymore. I love how Nijimura, in the Replace novel series, meets Himuro and totally has a thing for him, calling him beautiful about 30 times. I've started on Moriyama/Izuki, too, and I don't know how I'm going to be able to come up with enough puns. I'm sure there will be some other stuff between the ships, too.
