Hello fellow users of FanFiction.net. If you bothered to read my Author's profile XD, then go right on in :).
I'm a young aspiring writer who was finally inspired to write stories by the constant compliments I used to get for most of my English works. It was pointed out frequently by my friends and family that I really had talent for my age with vocab and just writing in general. At first, I resisted doing anything with it because I believed it would be too much work for me. I didn't think I could write enough to make a well-written, decent chapter. At the time the most I was used to was five-paragraph essays so writing an actual multi-chapter fanfic seemed like a real challenge to me. O.o Though I also had a tendency to worry about writing characters OOC and I just really cannot stand that. However, I finally decided to give it a try and I'm very proud with the improvement I've had the past few years I've had an account here. For those of you who know my writing style by now, you can see I have no trouble at all anymore writing extremely long chapters. XD I also intend to become an author someday, so this site and the support is really helping me get closer to that goal! :D
I'm a senior in high school with good enough grades, though I've never been much of a Straight A honor student. I'm very good in History and English (of course), though anything with the Mathematics and you lose me. By far my worst characteristics is my laziness and "cases of unmotivation". I get like this sometimes even with my writing (when life doesn't get in the way first) so my updates are inconsistent and badly planned. I apologize in advance before anyone reads my stories and gets attached to them, but I promise I'll never abandon anything I write. I may procrastinate but I always, always do it at some point or another. One of my favorite sayings is literally "Better late than never" because it fits me so well. XD
TV shows, animes, fandoms, and movies are also my passions. My personal goal is to watch as many as possible because sadly I haven't yet watched enough. I usually tend to get very deep in shipping ('hence the name ;)) and I'm a truly awful debater if you ever confront me on that or deep life topics. I'm very passionate. xD I'm active on tumblr, forums, and in my fandoms so if you wanna start a chat with one about one of them--a ship, a character, or a even just a message--just message me and I'll be glad to share my thoughts with you! :)

Expectations of My Writings:
1). I will never write anything about characters or pairings specifically that I hate. I have no tolerance for that, if I hate something, I want nothing to do with it. However, I would never let my hate cloud the character or pairing's characterization. I put extremely high value on accurate in-character behavior, and that means I do respect canon pairings/character thoughts if I truly believe it is a certain way; whether I like it or not. (*Examples: If I believed or knew a pairing I hate was two-sided, I would write it two-sided. If I hated a character, I would never change their quirks randomly nor would I make them look more terrible than they are. If I hated a one-sided pairing, I would still make it one-sided despite my dislike of one party's feelings and if I did change it, it wouldn't be random. So yes, while I would never write something specifically focused over something I don't like, I would make it true to character if it had a cameo in one of my stories. One thing remains consistent about me: Every character's thoughts/relationships/traits are what I believe rings true to canon of the actual series. I would never write something I didn't believe fit canon.
2). My writing style is not so heavy on "fast-paced plot or rushness". Now that doesn't mean my stories have no excitement in them, it just means that I'm very thorough with the events that lead up to it. I have an extreme distaste for doing anything too quickly because I want it to be realistic, dramatic, and as perfect as possible. When I do something way too fast, I feel unsatisfied and disappointed. xD Like "Noo, I could've done that so much better!" lol. I say this because I know some readers prefer fast-paced stories as opposed to meticulous and thorough ones, so I'd like to give a heads' up for some of you, 'kay? :) This also coincides with conflict. I really hate it when stories resolve the conflict so quickly. it makes the journey to get there almost pointless and much less interesting. I like suspenseful stories and 'Will he/she succede? Will he/she fail?'. I don't end conflicts swiftly is basically what I'm saying. If it's a multi-chapter fic, then this is especially apparent.
3). Most of my fanfics will revolve around some of my favorite romantic relationships, friendships, and to a lesser extent character development. I'm interested in many books and TV shows, but what I've always been most passionate about is the relationships between characters above all else. Now, that doesn't mean I don't enjoy other messages or themes: comedy and action-adventure are also something I like. I never just watch/read for the relationships, it's just what I enjoy the most. So much so that it's probably the only thing I'll have the interest to write or read about. Admittingly, and probably most obvious, I have a passion for love stories (Note the user name ;P). I am, in every sense of the word, a hopeless romantic even before I knew what that was. xD And I feel that really shows in my writing. Yet I have an intense fondness for character development as well. I enjoy seeing a character's journey change and twist in whatever direction, for better or worse (usually better. I prefer better lol). Static characters bore my to death! I will have stories that focus solely on CD, but even in my romance/friendship-centered ones, I will always have a splash of it involved toward a varying degree.
4). My fanfictions will always have some sort of point or message in them, whether obvious or subtle. I don't like stories that have no point at all. It's extremely hard for me to like/write. I enjoy deep meanings in a story, and I think that shows in my interests as well. If I'm writing something that doesn't have some sort of goal or deep message, then I'll never be able to be invested enough to finish it. And since I usually want to finish stories I start, I'd like very much to avoid that. XD
5). Um ... I have a fondness for angst on some occasions in my stories. xD It's a guilty pleasure lol. I don't understand it completely, but I think it has something to do with connecting and sympathizing to a character's hardships. That can unconsciously influence the pairings I ship and the characters that end up being my favorites. However, I do know a limit. Which means, in most of my stories, I may have very depressing elements or angst moments, but I always do them for a reason. It often traces back towards character development or pairing development. As much as I love sympathizing with characters, I don't want them eternally miserable. Contrary to what some might believe, my type of depressing is "big angsty conflicts/revelations, then a slow build-up towards a even ground/"happy ending". I often love my characters and pairings too much to have everything unbelievably bad for them. I may take notes off him, but I am no Joss Whedon. ;) (If you don't know who that it is, you should look him up xD). Though if I feel it's necessary to end badly, I will do it. However, that does not mean I get enjoyment out of it.

Favorite Shippings in Anime/TV shows/Books:
1). Bangel (Buffy & Angel/Buffyverse): My ultimate OTP. I will defend this ship to my death. The forbidden love and the angst and just how naturally they connect and understand each other. The way they struggle with how doomed their relationship and how much they still love each other even when they're separated or moved on to other people ... they're just so incredibly special. Angel's love for her and how much Buffy changed his life, how much he cares about her safety and loved her so much he sacrificed being with her just to give her a better life. They're so alike to each other (more than they even know) and are in the truest sense equals. They have problems and in hindsight I understand more why some people prefer Spuffy, but their problems are always handled realistically, a quality that lacks in many anti-hero/good girl pairings nowadays. Buffy gives this balance to Angel's self-loathing and Angel would done anything for her to be safe. Their relationship in the first 3 Buffy seasons probably wasn't as mature as it should've been given since Buffy was still very young, but I think now if Joss ever put them together again they'd have a much more mature relationship than what they used to have. I'm always going to hope we'll see that again.
2). NaruSaku (Naruto & Sakura/Naruto): This ship has to be the greatest tragedy in all literally works I've ever witnessed and not because of angst or heartbreak. This was the most perfectly developed, foreshadowed, selfless, theme-encompassing couple in a story and made the most perfect amount of sense but then such a beautiful pairing that could've embodied the entire spirit of it's own series got destroyed and tore down by two ships that weren't even half as perfected as this one. It was developed in the whole Naruto series, filled with mutual selflessness and Naruto's unending devotion to Sakura and could've taught three very good messages: "Nice guys don't always finish last", "True love is when you put others needs before yours", and "Girls can mature and change after the suffering of falling for the wrong guy". What makes this ship so tragic is because it should've happened and was so close to being there, but the writer had to cop out and ruin everything. I was devastated when this ship sunk and out of all my other ships, I can honestly say this was the best one on every angle: development, story theme, messages, and realism. I will always love this ship and refuse to accept any downplays of it out this series' terrible ending. It was a truly perfect couple and no matter what, I'll always ship what they really were and what could've been. This ship was supposed to be canon. I know that without a doubt.
3). Sooric (Eric & Sookie/True Blood): This ship sort of snuck up on me. I never expected to ship it since it was so completely screwed up and manipulative in the first couple seasons, though in the third one it was morbidly interesting. After season 4 though and how much Eric changed, this ship easily goes down in history as one of my favorites. Sookie saw good in Eric no one else did and Eric is just so gentle when alone with her when he's really anything but. He's selfless with her when he's not selfless and you know even when Sookie moved on, a part of him always loved her. Just the idea that this badass, independent, detached vampire could love this one regular girl and show her a tenderness reserved just for her ... it's so sweet. I understand why this ship wasn't endgame, but I wish the show played with them more instead of wasting it on another forced Bill/Sookie romance. That ship should've already sunk at that point. Sooric had so much potential and Eric is just beautiful when he's with Sookie, he loves her so much ughhhh ;(.
4). LeafxCrow (Leafpool & Crowfeather/Warriors): One of my childhood OTPs and the first couple from Warriors I ever truly shipped. It's still my favorite of the series. What drew me to them was the forbidden love. Neither of them could ever be together because their Clans were rivals and Leafpool was a medicine cat besides. She wasn't allowed to be with someone. I still remember how Leafpool was the only person who truly understood Crowfeather's torment after Feathertail, his first love, died. He was gruff and angry and though Leafpool didn't like it, she still comforted him. Leafpool healed (pun intended) Crowfeather's heart after losing Feathertail and gave him something in life to love again. They shouldn't have felt the way they did for each other, but they loved each other so much they nearly left behind their whole old life just to be together. Their break-up was devastating. Leafpool had to take care of her Clan because it was her duty and Crowfeather broke his own heart because he knew that's where she belonged. And then after that, though I hated how heartless Crowfeather was to Leafpool, inside you can see his heart was just broken beyond recognition. He finally found someone else to love and he could never be with her either. He lost all happiness for himself and stays behind to a Clan he feels constantly alone in. They'll always love each other tho and I hope so much they can have a happy ending someday. Maybe not alive, but in StarClan.
5). JayxHalf (Jayfeather & Half Moon/Warriors): I used to think a character like Jayfeather could never be shipped with anyone, but this one-book romance blew me out of the water. Jayfeather was always so black-and-white. Either something is or isn't. He didn't understand love and was so critical about it, but Half Moon softened his rough edges and taught him what it felt like to be with someone he couldn't have like what his parents went through. He loved Half Moon so much. It didn't matter if they were from different times and he wanted to stay with her, but they both had responsibilities and had to do the right thing. Half Moon died in the past while he went to future, but she never stopped loving him even years after she saw him. It's just so beautiful and pure love in every sense. I know Jayfeather's a medicine cat and can't have a mate, but when he dies I hope he'll get a second chance and be with her in StarClan. They both deserve it after everything they had to give up.
6). TigerxDove (Tigerheart & Dovewing/Warriors): I shouldn't ship this ship. I know that. Dovewing deserves someone so much better than another forbidden love and relationship. In Warriorsverse, they never ended well and never will. But there's just something about the innocence of this couple that keeps me hooked. They're so cute together and you can tell how much they really care about each other. No matter how many times she pushes Tigerheart away to be loyal and acts like she hates him, Dovewing loves him so much and would be with him in a heartbeat if they were in the same Clan. I don't expect this ship to have a bright future -- the writers are the Erins after all--but even if they never happen again or both move on, I'll always remember their first meeting in Night Whispers and how unbelievably innocent and adorable they were before everything started to fall apart around them. Oh, it hurts so much to ship this! T.T
7). SquirrelxBramble (Squirrelflight & Bramblestar/Warriors): It's nice to that not all my favorite couples are doomed (though this one definitely had a lot of close calls). These two have been through so much together. They had so many problems, they were complicated, had times when they lost complete trust in each other ... but no matter how bad it was, they always eventually found their way back to each other. They've lied to each other and hurt each other, but also fight alongside each other and help lead their Clan together. The development in this ship for a Warriors couple is outstanding. They went from hating each other to becoming friends to being unable to live without each other. Squirrelflight and Bramblestar are strong-willed, amazing characters that challenge each other and seem like polar opposites but really aren't. I just have so much respect for this ship. They're complex and realistic. Neither of their mistakes towards each other healed overnight, but it's okay because they're true love and been through hell and back. I'm so glad they finally had a happy ending after everything that happened between them ... and I can't wait to get to know their new kits! ;)
8). LionxCinder (Lionblaze & Cinderheart/Warriors): Yet another ship I don't have to look back on with shipper pain. Something about these two always drew me right from their first "moment" in Fading Echoes. Cinderheart and Lionblaze are both stubborn and feisty that had tons of personal issues (Lionblaze his heritage and prophecy, Cinderheart her past life) and were just so hard to get together. They tried to be mature and put responsibility first, never letting themselves be happy. Cinderheart didn't know who she was and if she could even be with Lionblaze because he was just so important to the future of their Clan. They were in same Clan, but had so many demons. I was so happy when they realized they could be together. Cinderpelt's reincarnation had the mate and family she never had and Lionblaze could be with someone that wouldn't cause him pain. It was ending the characters both deserved.
