Author has written 11 stories for Kingdom Hearts.

Uh..wow. So I have no idea what to say about myself.

I'm an artist and I'm also trying to learn Spanish fluently. I recently got into writing and...ya. I guess that's it.

Oh ya, and I'm a huge fan of Kingdom Hearts (as convoluted as its storyline is) and Durarara!!!. I also love Avatar: The Last Airbender (but come on, who doesn't?) and Adventure Time.

Some Cool Bands (For the more indie-alternative inclined):

Fleet Foxes-great, great band
The Shins-Some of their stuff is pretty good
Noah and the Whale-Rockin Brits
Regina Spektor-She puts her own twist on things
Darwin Deez-He's a total hipster asshole, but his music is great
Beirut-instrumental eargasm.
Jonsi/Sigur Ros-Oh, Iceland, why are you so musically gifted?
Young the Giant-A cool Californian sound. They're my current fav.

Also if you're into classical music, you should check out some of Makoto Yoshimori's stuff, especially the scores he did for Durarara!!!. He's an instrumental genius.

Favorite Quotes (If you know where all or most of these are from without cheating, you are my new best friend):

"Dear Mary...I yearn for you tragically." (book; if you know this and actually enjoyed reading the book it came from, I love you.)
"You sold me queer giraffes." (movie)
"No--Xion! Who else will I have ice cream with?" (T_T game; this is one everyone should know)
"You are the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world" and "Mom and dad are gonna have to call up kindly doctor So-and-so to dig up your dental records; do you wanna know why? There's gonna be nothing left of your face." (movie; yet again, this is one everyone should know)
"Oh, and just because I like humans, it doesn't mean that I like you, personally." (TV show)
"Cotton and cardboard, cellophane and paper, thread, needle to employ.
Wool felt and fabric, birds fly and cats play,
Golden the pony boy." (song from movie)
"Are you Jonfen?" (movie; extra points if you get this one)

I'm sure there are more but I can't think of them at the moment.

oooooooooo

In Kingdom Hearts Fanfics...

Sora is either a buffoon, a popular guy, or an awkward gay kid
Riku is a cool jerk
Kairi actually has personality
Namine is vibrant and rambunctious
Roxas is too brooding to understand his homosexuality
Axel is a psycho, molesting pyromaniac
Demyx is loved by everyone
Zexion is an emotionless bastard until halfway through the story
Marluxia is a raper
Larxene is still a bitch
Saix is slightly more likeable, but often an asshole
Xigbar is a horny, wild-eyed creep
Xemnas is a gay enigma
Xion is not totally useless
Xaldin, Lexaeus, , and are overlooked because they’re not bishounen
Aqua is a mother-type figure
Terra is a father-type figure
Ventus is paired with Aqua (the mother figure), Terra (the father figure), or Vanitas (the brother figure). Can anyone say Oedipus?
Vanitas is a bad boy
Xehanort is a scheming geezer
Eraqus is a goody-two shoes, yet still doesn’t seem to mind killing one of his apprentices ‘for the greater good.’

Okay, that last one was just something that irked me about the games. Anyway, feel free to make your own! What patterns have you guys noticed in KH fanfics?

oooooooooo

WHAT's On my...RECOMMENDED READING LIST?

No. This is not simply a segment for my favorites. This is for stories that may be in my favorites, but that I think deserve special recognition. So I guess the absolute best.

"Chicken Bones" by Usagi-san's ipod; This is just an excellent story. It's filled with complex characters that the reader quickly forms connections with. The relationships between the characters are very believable. Ryu reveals things at the perfect moments. What more can I say? It's not just a good fanfic, it's a good story, and that means a lot coming from me. One tiny yaoi warning, but I will say that the yaoi doesn't seem to be the point of the story. It's an actual, believable, unrushed romance. (Also, you can see the gushy, drawn-out review I left there one night when I was really tired. I'm creepy when I'm tired). SUMMARY:Roxas has to go into a mental institution and sort out his problems. There, he meets a few other teenagers and young adults dealing with a multitude of problems. Great, great story.

drabbles and one-shots (just the generic term btw; this isn't a story name) by the devil is a waterbender-the devil is a waterbender's repertoire has tons of great drabbles and paragraph-long stories. They're all heartfelt, well-written musings, and you can breeze right through them. Leave a review if you do; the stories great, and in my opinion, completely under-appreciated.

oooooooooo

And here is a list of all the SONGs OF THE WEEK. Since I update my longer stories weekly, I also like to give a little extra to my readers. The Song of the Week is just my pick of good music, and a lot of it may be stuff you've never heard before. Give a few a listen; you might be surprised.

1. "Blood" by the Middle East- beautiful tune, sad lyrics. If you like indie or alternative, this'll be great for you. Also, the first ever song of the week. It has long been one of my favorites. Btw; Weird music vid. Listen to the song before watching it.

2. "The Rifle's Spiral" by The Shins-upbeat, catchy tune. Interesting lyrics. Love the music video; it's weird but I really, really, like it.

3. "Save Us" by Feeder- cool song. Great music in the background. It gets me pumped. Pretty cool music vid, but listen to the song before you watch it.

4. "Postcards from Italy" Beirut cover- excellent instrumentals. If you like instrumentals, this is a great band for you. Also, I love the vocals, and the pacing of the music in this song. Just an overall good song. Cool music vid. I'm not crazy about it, but it's chill.

oooooooooo

And Lastly, a list of the stories in the Dearest Friend Collection in the order I published them.

1. "Dearest Friend"-Xion & Roxas

2. "Big Bear and Little Bears: Pals Forever."-Axel & Roxas

3. "The Valley of Ashes"-Vanitas...Just Vanitas.

oooooooooo

RANDOM IPOD CHALLENGE

'kay, so I know there's probably quite a few variations of this floating around fan , but here it is:

Set your iPod on shuffle, and pick the first five songs that come up. Write five one-shots, using a different song for each as a jumping off point. You can set parameters for yourself; Maybe each one has to be a drabble, or each one has to be AkuRoku. Maybe they'll make up a short multichapter. Whatever you like.

Heh, not really much of a challenge. Okay, so I really just want to see what type of music you guys like. Don't forget to leave an author's note referencing the song name and band! And good luck! I just finished my third today.

oooooooooo

Anyway...ya. PLEASE READ AND REVIEW MY STUFF! I cannot stress enough how much any type of review brightens up my day.

PM me if you'd like. I love talking to you guys!

Almost two years have passed since Kiera was dragged along for the roller coaster ride known as Sora's life. And just when she's started to get back on track, the fact that her job as a Gatekeeper is never finished has come back to slap her in the face. And boy, does it slap hard.

The Valley of Ashes reviews
"The dust and ash. They smothered everything - the ground, the houses, the unkempt graveyard a few miles off of town. They choked the cactuses that got overzealous and tried to sprout from the barren soil. And, when Vanitas looked close enough at the other people who lived here, he could just make out the dust and ash, clogging every pore of their skin." slightly AU, part of DFC.
