Author has written 34 stories for Harvest Moon, Hunger Games, Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon, Victorious, Warriors, and Animal Crossing.
Hello, and welcome to my profile! I'm Cotton Candy Mareep (CCM), either an odd little human or a fluffy pink electric sheep. Your call.
I also have an AO3 account under the same name (CottonCandyMareep) - I might crosspost a few of my stories from here to that account as well, but I'm much more active on this site.
Fandoms: Depending on my motivation, I will read and write about Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons, Rune Factory, Pokémon (games only, especially Mystery Dungeon!), Animal Crossing, Elder Scrolls (Skyrim in particular), Warrior Cats, Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Percy Jackson & the Olympians, Divergent, Wings of Fire. Occasional Homestuck, Disney, DreamWorks, other assorted stuff, etc. etc.
Currently Reading Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Broken Ideals by ShadowVulpi (fanfic)
Currently Writing Differences (Warrior Cats longfic) primary focus, Animal Crossing Academy secondary
Differences - When a kittypet named Luna wanders onto Clan territory, newly-named warrior Blackfrost isn't too pleased - especially when he ends up having to save her life. He brings her back to his Clan, much to their mutual dismay, but it doesn't end there. As the bitterly cold season of leaf-bare swiftly approaches, clutching the forest in its icy claws and bringing with it many hardships for the Clan cats of the forest, secrets will be revealed and lines will be crossed... But can Luna and Blackfrost, polar opposites from two opposing worlds, learn to settle their differences?
-Romance/Friendship/Adventure; takes place sometime between SkyClan's departure and Bluestar's Prophecy in the old forest territories. In Progress.
Animal Crossing Academy - History is being made at Animal Crossing Academy this year! Their newest student, a girl named Rina, will be the first human to ever attend the prestigious animal academy located in the heart of New Leaf Town. How will she handle her new life at a school surrounded by animals? Balancing classes, homework, club duties, friendships, and possible romances has never been more difficult, or interesting. Featuring a variety of Animal Crossing villagers!
-Animal Crossing high school/academy AU; Friendship/Adventure. In Progress.
Birds of a Feather - They were similar, in a way. Two birds of a feather. Both were shy and quiet, keeping their feelings all locked up inside. But where Vaughn was cold and unfriendly, Sabrina was sweet and kind. Perhaps all it takes is a bit of kindness for one cold heart to warm up to the other. My take on Regardless1604's Rival Couples Challenge. Sabrina/Vaughn, with some obstacles presented by Chelsea and Regis.
-Based on IoH. Romance/Drama. Themes Completed: 29/50. Updated Sporadically.
A Beautiful Mess - Because there is more to that beautiful barmaid than meets the eye. 100 drabbles based on various moments in the life of Muffy in Forget-Me-Not Valley, based on Regardless1604's 100 Theme Challenge. Written because I used to greatly dislike her when I was younger, and now I feel bad about it, since she's actually a really interesting character (you know, for a Harvest Moon bachelorette). Note: chapters are not in chronological order, but random. Some Muffy/Griffin and eventual Muffy/Jack.
-Based on AWL. Hurt/Comfort/Drama/Friendship/Family/Romance. Themes Completed: 6/100. Updated Sporadically.
Under the Harvest Moon - Various Harvest Moon characters are selected to compete in the Hunger Games, a fight to the death on national television where only one can make it out alive. What ensues is a dramatic tale of broken friendships, family bonds, and star-crossed romance. (Warning: Rated T for violence)
-Harvest Moon Hunger Games AU; various characters and pairings; Drama/Suspense/Horror/Angst/Tragedy/Family/Friendship/Romance. On Hiatus.
Stuck - The Hollywood Arts gang - Tori, Jade, Beck, André, Cat, and Robbie (and Rex) - find themselves in a bad situation after a night on the town. Now they're stuck here indefinitely, trapped in a cramped, broken down elevator in the middle of a shady parking ramp, with only each other to help pass the time as they await rescue... If it ever comes. Takes place sometime between Seasons 1 and 2.
-Drama/Suspense/Friendship; possible romance. 5/8 Chapters. Veeeery Slow Updates.
Possible Upcoming Stories:
- Darkened Skies (tentative title) - sequel to my Warriors fic Differences, focusing on old characters as well as a variety of new ones as they have to work together to solve a mystery surrounding all four forest Clans. In the sweltering heat of greenleaf, Clan cats suddenly start vanishing with hardly a trace, and only one strange similarity connects the disappearances. Add to that a mysterious prophecy that appears to hint at a deadly frost threatening the safety of all the Clans, and ThunderClan warrior Blackfrost can't help but wonder - is he to blame? Perhaps the answers may be found hidden somewhere within Twolegplace...
- Untitled - series of oneshots based on characters and backstories from my Warriors fic Differences.
- Before the Moon Rises - my own short prequel of sorts to the Warriors: New Prophecy book Moonrise.
- Untitled - Harvest Moon: ToTT Georgia/Kana oneshot, sequel to How the Cookie Crumbles.
- Midsummer Night Dreams (tentative title) - Harvest Moon: Animal Parade romantic comedy featuring Angela as the main protagonist, based on a modernized Shakespearean story and a certain plan by Mayor Hamilton to bring more tourists into Harmonica Town gone hilariously wrong.
- Apples & Oranges - another Harvest Moon: Animal Parade multi-chapter fic featuring a sort-of love quadrangle between Molly, Chase, Maya... and one more surprise bachelor.
And many, many more miscellaneous story ideas that may or may not actually be written.

Updates are not final and may be moved or changed at any time due to other events going on in my life. However, if there is a fanfic of mine that you really like and I haven't updated it in a while, a reminder review may be enough to get me working on the next chapter. I prefer not to leave fics discontinued as long as I have interested readers, though I'm genuinely sorry if it really does take me a long time to get things going again.
as of 9/1/2016:
I've just started school again recently and have an extremely busy schedule without much free time for writing, so unfortunately, my activity here will be rather sporadic and story updates will come very slowly as a result. I may end up taking a somewhat-accidental hiatus on my fanfics until winter break comes, but go ahead and follow if you don't want to miss anything, haha. While I may be getting older, I don't have any intent to abandon this account or to stop writing fanfiction just yet! My main priority right now is my Warrior Cats fanfic Differences (and its eventual sequel), followed by my Animal Crossing high school AU Animal Crossing Academy, but I've also been thinking about writing stories for some other fandoms, some of which are already in the late planning/early writing stages.
Thank you for visiting my profile page! I hope you enjoy reading my stories, and feel free to drop a review while you're add it!
