I decided to change my name to Karin Mazaki. So if you are looking for Mazaki-sensei you came to the right place.
I've updated a few stories. They are minor changes that don't effect the plot of the stories. Just little grammar errors and other bits that bothered me.
Let me remind people about the different kinds of fan fictions.
Drabbles are only 100 words long. They are like a poem. Extra details will only ruin the art form.
One-shots are short stories. They can be as long and as detailed as the writer likes. There is no point in complaining about the briefness or lack of detail. The writer can either write a complete story or give a brief peek into their life. As this is a fan fiction, I am writing for fans who know the characters very well. Extra details can bog down a fic that is just a short peek. Finally, since I'm not being paid for this, I don't feel I have to be obedient to every single little complaint. Changes can be made for errors or if something is lacking or distracting from the story.
Longer, multi-chapter stories are complete and full of details. I always leave out the details fans should know about the characters. Keep in mind, the story may have as much or as little to do with the canon as he or she desires.
When I started, I made it a policy to give thanks to everybody who favorite/follow/or reviewed. I can't do that anymore, so just know you are appreciated. Thank you so much and please continue to support me. I don't know what I would do without you. I will make every effort to answer reviews and PM's, as I feel responding to them is important. However, I have a bad habit of responding months after the message had been sent. So please be patient.
You will find me on Facebook with the name Karin Mazaki. Karin for Ichigo's little sister on Bleach and Mazaki for Anzu Mazaki from Yu-Gi-Oh. I like these girls so no snotty remarks about them, especially Anzu. BTW I use Bleach names for all of my OCs. Send me a PM on this site if you want me to friend you on Facebook.
You might have noticed the crummy pictures I use for some of my cover art, yes, they are mine.
I have branched out to include stories based on many anime instead of just Yu-Gi-Oh. Every time I watch a new anime or read a new manga, I have to write a story. But I will always return to my forever OTP, Puppyshipping (Seto/Joey of Yu-Gi-Oh.)
Now for some thoughts on the anime I based my stories on. It all begins with:
Scroll down for my theory on Puppyshipping.
I like Peachshipping and see them as a canon couple.
I am surprised Chaseshipping (Tristan/Duke) isn't more popular. If you like rival pairs like Joey and Seto, it seems natural to me, to pair these two as well.
I was introduced to Protectshipping (Tristan/Ryo Bakura) on DA and like it but haven't come up with a good story yet.
I also like to pair Mokuba with Serenity (Siblingshipping) or Rebecca (Kiddyshipping). I think both girls are good for Mokuba in different ways. It is easy to pair him with Serenity when his brother is dating her brother. I also like him with Rebecca because they have many things in common.
Oofuri or Big Windup
Who gets Mihashi? That is the question. Tajima already is close to Mihashi and they have a lot in common.
The nicer Abe gets in the manga, the better is his chances are to getting Mihashi. He does act jealous of Tajima and possessive of Mihashi, so there is potential for the pairing. I like rival pairs but I like them to be equals in strength. Therefore, as Mihashi grows in confidence and Abe controls his temper, the potential increases.
This is an anime with endless possibilities. I like most of the characters and pairings. My favorites are the Nordics and FACE pairings.
My favorite girl character is Hungary but I haven't settled on a pairing for her.
My OTP for this anime is Germany/N. Italy.
Germany is my favorite as he is so very hot. I also have settled on his pet name for Italy, "Dummkopf" Or "My little dummkopf" spoken with affection so Italy doesn't know he's being insulted or doesn't care. See the story of the same name that started it all.
I like Haru with Makoto and never with Rin. Makoto/Haru is my OTP for this anime.
I didn't know what to do with Rin then Sousuke showed up. Sousuke/Rin.
I saw the trailer for the new movie and I learned something. Haru didn't quit swimming after Rin left. He carried on until high school where there was no club until Nagisa showed up. This movie looks like a MakoHaru movie. And Rin is less important to Haru than I realized. Rin might have had a crush on him but he's happier with Sousuke, who is clearly in love with Rin. And Haru loves Makoto who adores him.
My favorites list for this anime: 1) Makoto, *dreamy eyed* He's practically perfect in every way. 2) Haru, the pretty boy. 3) Sousuke, so smoking hot, he pushed Rei to 4th place. 4) Rei, the hotty in glasses. Right? Thug Seme? 5) Nagisa, "You got that right."6) Kou/Gou, Fujoshi. 7) Rin, I'm not fond of Jaws but Sousuke is, so I write it that way. 8) Everyone else.
My only pairing, Zoro/Sanji or Sanji/Zoro. My best example of rival pair who are equal in strength and therefore, have a strong partnership.
Zoro was the only one who didn't peep at the naked girls. I decided he was gay at that point. No matter how much a guy respects women he would still peek. So Zoro's gay.
Sanji is a bit too over the top at his skirt chasing. Funny on the show but hard to believe when writing a romance. I believe Sanji could have experimented with men.
I believe Nami and Robin had to do all kinds of things to survive.
Luffy probably had a girlfriend or two.
Franky is experienced.
Chopper is not.
Usopp lacked opportunity but I think it is only a matter of time before he gets a girlfriend.
Tenipuri or Prince of Tennis
The Golden Pair is a canon couple.
My main pair is Kaidoh/Momo or Momo/Kaidoh.
I got this thing about Ryoma being too young to pair him with anybody. Then I paired the 12 year old Oishi and Eiji together. I don't understand it either. All I know for sure is I will never pair him with Sakuno. Then I paired him with Momo for a request and I probably never will again. They will have to remain friends. However, that request fic included Inui/Kaidoh and that was hot. But I don't know if I'll do it again.
Confession is complete, there is no more.
Kuroko no Basuke or Kuroko's Basketball
My OTP is Kagami/Kuroko.
I also wrote about Kagami with Aomine but only when they went into the zone together, it was really sexy.
I paired Aomine with Kise which is even hotter and they were even more in sync when they went in the zone together. I don't know why that is sexy but it is.
My only het pairing is Riko and Junpei.
I've liked Riko from the first moment she had the boys take their shirts off. Gotta thank her for that.
Izaya and Shizuo
The hottest pairing on the show. There is about a dozen couples on the show, all weird pairs and I only write about these two. I don't think they would be a long lasting couple. In fact, I think they would kill each other in the end. A glorious, passionate blood bath. In the meantime they would do extreme adult stuff together.
Izaya has become my favorite on the show. I cry every time he gets hurt.
Sunako and Kyohei OTP. And I like all of the canon couples.
Hikaru no Go
How frustrating was the ending? That's why I had to write Rivals and Friends. There will be other stories. Some friendship stories and some romance. I'm pairing Hikaru with Akira but sometimes they will be strictly friends. I'll be sure to make it clear what kind of story it is. I can't pair him with Akari. I'm just not feeling it. This is a failing with either mangaka or Japanese society. Just how long do these girls have to flirt with these boys before the boy realizes it? There is the boy is going along doing his thing, spending long periods of time forgetting the girl even exists and bang suddenly at the last minute he likes her and they get married. I'm looking at you Naruto. Meanwhile the boy is passionately chasing after another boy *cough Sasuke cough* If he chased after the girl like that I would pair them in a heartbeat. At least in Oofuri the girl realizes her crush doesn't look at her that way and I hope she moves on.
Sasuke/Naruto OTP and only pairing.
I don't mind Naruto being with Hinata. It's fine really. Maybe in the canon it makes sense. I don't know I haven't gotten that far in the story. But I'm sure they would have a fine marriage. I think Naruto got lucky. If he married Sakura, I think they would have a bad marriage. I can't stand Sakura. Sometimes I like her but most of the time I find her tiresome, unreasonably harsh toward Naruto, childish and mean. There are many female characters like her and you wonder what's the attraction?
Naruto's relationship with Sasuke is a passionate one. He spends such a long time chasing after the guy and finally catches them. Would you go that far for just a friend? You would think he would be planning on defeating the whole group but he is so focused on getting Sasuke back.
As I said at the top. An anti-gay reviewer been posting nasty reviews on my Naruto stories. I've been deleting them as soon as I see them. I'm here for you guys. I have your back. So sit back and enjoy. If you guys come across this bigot and the review is up for more than a day PM me and I will get on it.
I've tried to pair Ichigo with a bunch of people, nothing gelled so far. In the meantime I paired a canon couple (Ikkaku/Yumichika).
It so frustrating how slow things happen in the canon. Therefore, I wrote my own story. People seem to like it.
In the canon Misaki's sister-in-law is starting to figure them out. My guess came true.
Tiger and Bunny
Kotetsu and Barnaby my OTP and only pairing. They're canon too.
Another example where the girl slips below the boy's radar and meanwhile he spends all of his spare time chasing after his partner. The princess catches, the longing looks, the "notice me" moments, the "I'll do anything to help you" moments. I thought no non-yaoi could be gayer until Free! came along.
Theory on Puppyshipping
Since first writing this theory, I have read the manga and I have decided that I can't use it for my theory. All of my pairings except Peach can not be supported by the manga.
1) I can't use Joey and Kaiba from season 0. Kaiba is too evil and Joey is too much of a thug to have a romance between these two. In the English dub, Joey is more happy-go-lucky and Kaiba while angry seems to tolerate their existence.
2) It appears the creator of Yu-Gi-Oh decided that some of his characters like both boys and girls.
3) I believe that worrying about characters being OOC is silly. People change when they get older, mature and fall in love. Therefore, I am not going to worry about my characters being OOC. There is no way around it, in time everyone changes; it is natural, even for stubborn boys. When you watch enough episodes, you begin to notice Kaiba does change. One example (of many), Kaiba at first doesn't like to team duel with the Pharaoh, but by the end of the series he doesn't complain at all. It is as if he resigned to the fact that the gang is always going to be around and there is nothing he can do about it.
4) Joey doesn't have to change his behavior unless it applies to the story. Kaiba has to change or the story will not work. Joey will never accept Kaiba unless he lightens up and accepts him and his friends. Kaiba does change a little bit a least toward Yugi (Pharaoh) because he respects him so much. He seems to accept the gang because they help him and his beloved brother often.
5) Sometime after the series ends, Kaiba becomes friends with the gang, through Yugi or Duke. He admits to Joey he is an OK duelist, just not at his level. Joey is agreeable to this, and they bury the hatchet. He doesn't tell dog jokes any more, which are kind of immature.
6) Kaiba admits to some magic caused by objects such as the Millennium Rod. Otherwise, he spent a lot of time hallucinating and you better get the rubber room ready. In the manga he believes in magic somewhat and knows Yami is real.
7) He doesn't believe he is the reincarnation of Seth. He is the descendant of the high priest. He likes having a noble heritage though. The magic caused the Yamis to appear. Everyone believes the Yamis are dead and are going to stay dead in my fiction.
8) The gang is satisfied with Kaiba's answers and knows it's pointless to argue. It is kind of a miracle that he admitted to magic and agreed to be friends with them.
9) Kaiba hangs out with the gang when he feels like it and leaves when he's done. The gang is fine with this as well. As time passes he comes more often and stays longer. He doesn't admit to being their friend until pressed.
10) As time goes by and Kaiba gets used to having friends, he begins to see Joey in a new light and they start to date. I think Joey always wanted to be friends with Kaiba, but being boyfriends with Seto Kaiba is even better. ;)
The theory can be summed up this way: Joey and Seto forgive and forget, become friends and then become lovers. They alter their thinking first and their hearts follow.
That's all folks. Thanks for reading.
