Random Info of the Day: I have no idea what I'm doing with my life anymore. Everything's on hiatus until I finish dicking around, I guess. Lol at the DBZ shorts that are coming, though. Short lil one shots are so much easier than serious chapter-length stories. xD
I accept requests! Send me PMs with pairing and topic! (Try to keep it to short story/ one-shot level; I am willing to entertain lengthy plot bunnies but I have quite a few of those backed up as is)

Total words archived as of June 2, 2015 : 631,524. That makes about 100,000 a year. Not bad, I guess. If only that was all in one story, I'd have a great published novel by now. Oh yeah...those words don't count. Damn that's a lot of writing.

Favorite Fandoms (aka: universes I will write in):
One Piece addicted.
DragonBall Z: Once upon a time I said, too old. Now I'm back in the fandom and it's going to be a crazy ride. Goku/ChiChi, Vegeta/Bulma, Goku/Vegeta, even Trunks/Goten in the works. I went insane, guys. All I'm missing is Gohan/Videl and Krillin/18, which might come eventually, too.
Wheel of Time: One story. I wrote a long time ago. Enjoyed it while I was writing. Never going back to it, but it was good practice.
One Piece: Lots of one shots scattered around. Two multi-chapters that will one day eventually maybe complete.
Hetalia: I write one-shots on random whims or at requests. Anything more than that is most likely the product of a role-play with my sister. Also, I support a LOT of pairings, but I tend to have a setup that I actually really love. PruCan/UsUk/Spamano/GerIta/RoChu/DenNor/SuFin/SwissAus
SERIES: ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT - A PruCan-centric series based around Prussia and Canada falling in love while a one-world government begins to move throughout the world, capturing the recently discovered nation representatives. Also includes other pairings: GerIta/UsUk/SpaMano - and even RoChu later on)
"One Month"a PruCan fic in which Prussia makes a bet with his friends that they won't find him someone he hasn't met yet, and if they do - he has to live with them, for a month; Germany and Italy kind of want him out of the house, too, because he keeps interrupting their fun time with stupid jealousy for Germany's attention. What happens? Prussia goes to Canada!
-[progress]- COMPLETE!!!!! (Expect a revision eventually; things to fix include but are not limited to: correct French, correct historical references, making Canada less of a cry baby, glaring grammatical errors, and anything else that I think needs a fix - no worries, story won't be changed, just edited)
"One Season" the sequel fic to "One Month" in which Prussia is put face-to-face with an old love (Hungary) and finds that he has love in his heart for both her AND Canada. As he struggles with this tug-of-war, Hungary takes advantage and steals him away from Canada. Poor Canada is left to either sit to the side and wait for Hungary to "release" Prussia - or to go after them and make Gilbert realize who /really/ cares about him. Drama galore, my friends. Drama galore.
-[progress]- chapter 18 - 5%
"One Year" the third book, sequel to "One Season" in which...well...spoilers ;)
"One Lifetime: PruCan" - the novella, after "One Year" depicting eh, spoilers, but it follows PruCan specifically (Theme Song: Dead Hearts by Stars)
"One Lifetime: UsUk"-the novella depicting America and England as they cope with, well, spoilers (Theme Song: Don't Forget by Demi Lovato)
"One Lifetime: GerIta" -the novella depicting Germany and Italy as they cope with, yeah, spoilers (Theme Song: A Thousand Years by Christina Perri)

OTHER FICS IN THIS UNIVERSE:
"As You Wish"- a USUK fic taking place before events in "One Month," dealing with the circumstances that lead to America and England getting together. This starts on America's birthday in which England comes to his birthday party for the first time ever, and ends with quite a lot of sexy times in a nearby hotel. Three chapters long.
-[progress] - COMPLETE!

"You Belong to Me" - these are a collection of short story ficlets; not all of them take place in the same universe but there are a few that do: Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 4 all involving little moments that are off-screen during the One World Government timeline.
-[progress] - prompt 8 - 0%
SERIES: DRAGONBLADE-VERSE - an AU collection of books placed in my own created fantasy world, one I refer to as "Dragonblade" after the first book of my original fantasy book series. In said world, my sister and I role-played Hetalia into existence using a particular southern continent that I had created but not really developed. Fantasy creatures and story elements crossed with Hetalia. I have yet to give titles to all these stories, but I can say that there will be a book for each pairing. (UkUs, Spamano, GerIta, PruCan, RoChu, SuFin, DenNor, SwissAus, and others possible - and yes, it's UkUs, because it's pirate!Arthur and teenage!Alfred). Also, there's a lot of smut involved in these. I'm kind of ashamed but characters do what characters will.
"The Pirate and the Wolf" -Elf Pirate Captain Arthur Kirkland was conducting business as usual. The crew was supposed to pillage a village for supplies, kill all inhabitants as always, and then they were to return to the sky. But then First Mate Gilbert had to go and bring a young wolf-boy on board. From the moment he saw those determined, defiant blue eyes, Arthur's life became much more complicated than he ever would have imagined possible. UkUs
"Convincing the Cat" - Catrek Pirate Captain Antonio Fernandez Carriedo happens to steal a cabin boy from Kirkland's crew. Said cabin boy has foul language, a terrible attitude, and a desire to be the same as everyone else in his slave race. Lovino is determined to show Antonio why he's not worth it. Antonio is determined to show Lovino why he is. [role-play commencing; working title; more summary to come soon; Spamano]
"Lost and Found" - Half-Elf Gilbert Beilschmidt, First Mate to Captain Kirkland, separates from the pirate crew in the middle of a fight; he ends up injured in the woods and wakes up with a shy wolf-boy treating his wounds, the crew and airship no where in sight. The two join together to search for the airship, and end up growing closer along the way. Now if only Gilbert's past would stop coming back to haunt him. PruCan
"Dutiful Innocence" - Commander Ludwig Beilschmidt is assigned a new position at a secret underground base, but before he departs from home his father gifts him with a sweet little Anon slave boy. Feli isn't too sure what he's supposed to do or what is expected of him, and Ludwig has never owned an Anon before so he's not certain, either. What Ludwig is certain of is that his duty to his nation and to his people come first, though an innocent ever-questioning Feliciano challenges him to follow the duty of his heart as well. GerIta
"You Are the Prince, I Am the Servant" - Wulfcon noble, Roderich Eldestein is a young wolf child selected as an heir to a nobleman's line. Vash Zwingli is a Human serf child destined to be his bodyguard. When tragedy strikes, all plans are ruined for the children, but Vash is still determined to protect the young master, even if standing by his side has now become impossible. [AusSwiss/SwissAus - takes place chronologically before the other stories in this set]
"What We Become" - Half Elf Gilbert Beilschmidt is an inmate in a military prison. His crime leaves him shunned by the rest of the prisoners, making escape impossible. When he's sent to "solitary confinement" for a week, he meets another inmate by the name of Arthur Kirkland, the rumored immortal Elven sky pirate. Their bond may prove to be their one hope for freedom. Now all they need is a crew. [PrUk, well Pirate!England/Prussia, if you want to be technical] [takes place chronologically before other stories; meant as a back story for Prussia and England] [Picture used from: Pixiv ID 21469734]
"My First" - a collection of LuZo one-shots; some may be continuations of each other, just depends. One shots range from K to M-rated so be prepared.
"You Belong to Me"- a collection of PruCan one-shots; they will range from K to M-rated so be prepared for anything; there may be continuations among them; there will (hopefully) be 30 of these because I found a list of one word prompts to work off of; I do so much better when I have prompts!
"A Thousand Years" - a collection of Goku x Chi-Chi fics following a list of 100 prompts. Expect more cute and fluffy stuff from me here; that's what I love to write; little moments in time that happen in the blink of an eye but mean so much. Title inspired by my own Goku x Chi-Chi video (shameless plug for my youtube account haha)

Use all of the lj communities 30_kisses to write a 30-chapter story (6 out of 30 - slow but coming)

-One of these days I am going to make a livejournal or otherwise place to store my stories, in the case of ff.net taking me down for whatever reason; i will keep you updated on my progress with this-
"Procrastinators UNITE!! ... ... tomorrow." --from a shirt
"It's not hawt if you look gay. It's hawt if you ARE gay and you look straight!" - Me
"Wait, was that Prussia in a school girl outfit?!"
"Oh my god, you made America SUPER virgin."
"I'm still amazed at our PruCan role-play smex."
"Let's do some minors...oh that doesn't sound good...especially if I were in Congress." - Music Theory teacher
"Here's what I would do if I were me." - Music Theory teacher, again
"God put a plague on our house and turned our toilet water BLUE!!" - my brother (talking about the cleaning substance to clean toilets)
"Oh no! The plague came back! I blame everyone but me. How could you?!" - my brother (when my mom decided the toilets needed another cleaning)
"Computers...are...morons." - my brother, again, talking about computers in strategy games
"Music directors always have this strange humor that I never understand. They're just too weird."
"Without music the world would Bb." (that's a "B flat") - from a shirt and other music merchandise
"Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it."--C.S.Lewis
"That's what writing is all about, after all, making others see what you have put down on the page and believing that it does, or could, exist and you want to go there."--Anne McCaffrey
"Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self." - Cyril Connolly
"Don't change color to match the walls. Look like you belong and the walls will change color to match you." - Kender proverb (Dragonlance)
"I've often found, though, that deserving and happening don't always necessarily go together." -Tas (Dragonlance)
"Yet without the darkness, we would never be aware that the stars exist." - Palin(Dragonlance)
"Suck my disc drive!" --friend
"Tell me would you kill to save a life?" - 30 Seconds to Mars, Hurricane
"I'm the conductor. Be my instrument. Let me play upon you." - band director (hahahahahahahaha and he still says it occasionally, too; i love college)
"I hate writing. UGH."
"Okay, finished writing this story. Time to re-read. ... Awesome."
I try to keep a policy: if I read, I review, so I hope for the same from others. If you read, it's only courtesy to review - good, bad, or otherwise. Sometimes I leave helpful reviews; other times they're just acknowledgments of "I like this" - though I will leave what I like if I do say that. By reviewing me, you point me to your stories. Does this mean I will diligently read them? No, not necessarily. But I do like to read the profiles, at least, of everyone who reviews or favorites or alerts me.
On Reviews and What I Hope To See:
Personally, I write fanfiction to practice my craft and to take a break from the more seriously approached original stories. I don't search out heavy criticism like I do with my original stories. Certain things are important to me in fanfiction: are the characters in-character - or otherwise explained as to why they're different? Is the plot interesting or terrible? Are the character interactions believable? (THAT one is SUPER important to me) Should there be more or less description? Is the balance between dialogue and narration good or does it need work? Is the pace fast/slow, bearable/unbearable? Do I pull you in and keep you or do you find yourself wandering? Are you enjoying it? Why or why not?
"Characters rule the story. I just write it down."
