Author has written 15 stories for Rurouni Kenshin, Inuyasha, Sailor Moon, and Bleach.
Greetings! My name is Mooniestar, but you can call me Moonie. My favorite anime are Rurouni Kenshin (highly recommended!), Vampire Hunter D, Hellsing, Bleach, and Yu Yu Hakusho. I'm 26 and I've been into anime ever since I was 8. It's very addictive, I find. My favorite japanese word is Utsukushii, which means 'beautiful'. As of July of '09, I have been living in Okinawa, Japan. Sadly, all my fanfiction has been on hold, and only in the past week have I been picking up my old stories and wondering where my muse/motivation to write has gone.
The good news is that I'm continuing to write my stories Hypnotic, Silhouette, and Loyalty, seeing as how those seem to be the more popular ones. I'm also working on another Bleach fic called Mistaken. It's centered around Orihime and Ichigo (yay!), but her father comes into the picture. I'm not sure if I want to go through with writing that one, simply because of it's taboo nature (her father molests her a bit) but I am determined to make it about her and Ichigo, and there WILL be a happy ending. I know after reading Silhouette and Hypnotic, you might wonder if I even write happy endings.
And now for the bad news. The bad news is... with picking up such an old story like Loyalty, I'm not sure if I have the same idea in mind. For those of you who haven't read it, Loyalty is a Sailor Moon fic, starring the pairing of Usagi and Prince Diamond. She does have a forced marriage, and it's rather complicated. It was my first big fanfiction starting out, and I was even more of a novice in writing than I am now. I think I was confused on how their relationship was supposed to be, and I might even have to take drastic measures and rewrite the ENTIRE story. I really don't want to do that though. So when I'm writing later chapters, I will try my best to keep in mind the intentions I had years ago, while still showing that I'm developing in my writing skills and character/plot development.
The other bad news is my current situation. I'm currently on the lookout for a SOFA status job. You see, the military has this rule where if you're 23 and you don't have SOFA status, you aren't considered a dependent of your family anymore, and you have to be sent back to the US. Well, with that kind of pressure on me, I'm not sure if I'll have the time nor motives to really write fanfiction very much. But I shall try my best. I don't want to put my stories on hiatus because, however immaturely written they are, they are special to me and I want to keep up with them. I know I have very few fans, but hopefully now that you know what situation I'm in with life, you'll find it in your hearts to be patient with me. It may be slow going for a bit, but I promise to keep up with my stories! I really want to be a good writer and give people something compelling to read.
Anyway, that's about it. I shall persevere until the very end. While I do, please don't give up on me! Thanks!
A little update: Remember that thing I mentioned, the thing about getting a job that will grant me SOFA status? Well guess what? I have one! Ha, sorry I didn't give you time to guess. But it doesn't matter, I'm really happy right now. I have employment! And that means I'll be able to stay and live in Okinawa, Japan! Hooray! I'm going to end every sentence with an exclamation point because I can! Shiawase desu yo!
So anyway, I'm still writing fanfics. I have quite a few new additions to add to my collection. I'll tell you a bit about them, and maybe you'll want to read them.
Loyalty: This is my oldest story, dating back to my early high school days. I'm not only continuing it, I'm re-writing the initial chapters and fixing certain things that need improvement, such as pacing and character development, not to mention I need better descriptions. It's a Sailor Moon fic, starring the pairing of Usagi and Prince Diamond, but he goes by Demando. I'm sorry if that bothers anyone. I am uploading my new and improved version by the title of Loyalty: Redux. Please check it out okay?
Silhouette: This is a very... um, naughty story. It is a collection of Bleach one-shots, starring Orihime Inoue and several male characters. So far, I have paired her with Nnoitra and Gin Ichimaru. I plan on pairing her with Grimmjow and Ulquiorra, and perhaps even Aizen. But in the end, I want her paired with Ichigo, and that will be the last chapter. It is rated M for I hope 'M'om doesn't read this, heh. So please be cautious when reading.
Persimmon: Another Bleach fiction story, this time starring Rangiku Matsumoto and Gin Ichimaru. I always considered this a canon pairing, since the manga implies that they are at least close because of their childhoods and because of how Matsumoto reacts to Gin leaving, even though he was dubbed a traitor. This is a one-shot of where he comes back to her for one night. It is rather sappy, so please bear with it.
Fluctuate: Yet another Bleach story (sorry!) It stars Matsumoto and her captain Toshiro Hitsugaya, with implied MatsumotoXGin. She gives Hitsugaya a present, and although it's a little embarrassing, it helps Matsumoto come to terms with Ichimaru for a while.
So as you can see, I've been a busy bee (grin). I made a rhyme, lol. Anyway, I'm pretty occupied with writing Bleach fanfics, so Hypnotic (my Inuyasha fic) will be put on hold just a little while longer. I left it on such a bad cliffhanger, that I'm not sure what to do with it. I'll figure it out someday though. That's all for now, but come back soon, okay? See ya!
Hi there, mooniestar here _ I have good news. I'm working diligently on continuing some of my fanfics, mainly Inuyasha's Short Skirt Fetish, Hypnotic, and Silhouette. I want to continue writing Burashi no Hentai as well, but I'm just not sure where to go with it. I want to keep it light and fluffy, but sexy as well as humorous. I'm going to have to study Rukia a bit more to get her personality down, but that'll come in time.
Yesterday, I submitted two previews. One for Chapter 9 of Hypnotic, which I wrote in less than 2 hours and it's only 1000 words long, but it's a taste of what's to come. I hope it's not too disappointing. I also gave a preview of ISSF's next chapter, again light and fluffy, leading straight into the ol' "What happened last night?" act. But it'll get better, I promise! As far as Loyalty: Redux and Fluctuate, I'm afraid they'll have to wait, which is silly considering that Redux is a given and would be so easy to write, and yet it's not. There are so many things I could choose to improve on, such as dialogue, plot development, character development and interaction, subplots, background description, inner monologues, grammar (lol)... the list goes on! Of course, the ideal thing would be to improve on them all! That would be so wonderful, wouldn't it?
So anyway, I just want to tell you all that I'm not dead, and that I'm still writing. I still have the spark! Anyway, Happy New Year everyone =D Akemashite Omedetou Gozaimasu!
I feel like this is the only place I can really hide, as Facebook and Deviantart are much too conspicuous. Or maybe this place isn't safe. Either way, it's better by a margin, so I'm using this place to put a few thoughts. I'm at a huge crossroad right now, and things really could go one way or another. I mentioned earlier that I was living in Okinawa, and as of right now I still am. I want so badly to live here for much longer, long after my parents and sister will be leaving to return to the States. But sometimes I really wonder, am I worthy to stay here? Do I have what it takes? One reason I really wanted to come here was to prove that someone like me could make it in a foreign country, especially Japan. I could prove that if you really loved the culture and language, and all that entails, then things like money or status wouldn't really matter. In other words, all the 'otaku' in the US could live here based on just the pure love for the country. I could be an inspiration. I could lead the way!
Heh, but you know? I don't think even that's enough. Why should love matter when it comes to a country that won't really love you back? For a country that has so much interest in America and the English language/culture, when it comes right down to it, the immigration laws are tighter than Fort Knox security. I know that it's much better than it used to be, so there are improvements overall. However, as of this very moment, it's not enough for me. So I'm thinking that I'll just have to wait for the day when it will get better, whether it's 5, 10 or 20 years down the road.
I'm going to miss this place. Okinawa has been the best place I've ever lived. When I got here, I was in absolute awe and yet I feel like there was this weird nostalgic feeling too... like I had been here all my life. Everything was already 'familiar' and it just felt like I had grown up here, even though I know that's bogus. But being here just 'feels' right. I don't know how else to describe it. And I'm also afraid of moving back to the States, for some pretty weird reasons. Ever since I got into anime, as it were, I've already been pretty outcast. The only other people I'm able to make friends with is fellow anime-lovers and gamers, with the occasional comic-lover as well. Anyone else outside of that circle, I could never relate to on a deeper level than with the friends that shared the same interests as me. I couldn't explain to them why I liked watching Japanese cartoons or playing video games so much. And God forbid that I try to explain cosplay, hah!
But here... it's normal. It's okay. It's even encouraged sometimes! At work, when talking to the local nationals about what I like to do, I mentioned watching Bleach once, and nobody batted an eye. It was so strange, and yet I loved that reaction. No teasing, no ridiculing... just a nod and "What other anime do you like?" It was complete acceptance. I know it sounds so small, but really I feel so relieved to know that I can have an interest in anime, and it's not weird. My manager even told me not to be embarrassed to be a gamer, and all I could do was smile and feel the warmth in my heart.
So anyway, I don't want to leave this place. But if I have to, then I'm ready to accept it. Not ready for that 14 hour plane ride, but what can ya do? It will be nice to have this experience under my belt and all the memories and souvenirs as well. Who knows... maybe I'll run into a guy who's always wanted a girl who's been to Japan, and then I can finally have a happy ending. No, not that kind of happy ending... well maybe both. Haha. Anyway, I'm trying to be positive about all of this, and I just really hope and pray that things work out and that I won't have any feelings of regret. Maybe the next time I write here, I'll look back and think "Hey I was right, I can always come back" or "I don't have any regrets about this part of my life". Or something like that, I dunno. It's really late over here, lol.
That's all for now. Oh yeah, new fanfic submitted today: "Measurements and Misunderstandings". Go read it. And then come back and ask me what I was smoking, haha! Later then.
