Author has written 7 stories for Yu-Gi-Oh.
Hello, everyone. I am CrimsonStrawberry17 and have joined the wonderful world of fanfiction. I would like to inform everyone several things concerning my fanfics.
1.) I am a yaoi writer, although I do occassionally have malexfemale pairings, but those are usually background characters.
2.) I am a yugioh-centric writer, and I do not think I will be writing any other stories involving characters from other books, anime, manga, or movies. Well, perhaps a Yu-Gi-Oh and Harry Potter crossover somewhere down the line.
3.) I don't care much for Puzzleshipping (or any hikari/yami pairing) although I do respect those who write it and I do read quite a few of them. I view their relationship as more of a sibling one. Yami seems more like a guardian and an older brother to Yugi than anything else. So to those of you who want a Puzzleshipping story, I'm probably not going to write one. Their relationship just doesn't strike me as romantic. Plus, Yami just screams UKE at me . . .
4.) Mostly I am a Prideshipper/Scandalshipper. I absolutely adore this pairing, and most of my stories will revolve around this pairing when there is a romance involved. I enjoy other pairings so not all my stories will feature Prideshipping.
5.) As a warning, I have a deep fascination with Yami Yugi for some reason, so most of my stories will include him and more often than not, I tend to put him in some type of main character role. Most of the shippings I like include him too. So to anyone bothering to read this who is also reading my stories, I don't picture Yami excatly like they do in the anime. I prefer him with crimson eyes and the way Rapan Online drew his hair, which was shooting backwards in long strands rather than straight up. Also, he's always about 5'2 in my stories, and taller than Yugi.
PET PEEVES OF FANFICTION:
1.) When people majorly screw up a character's personality to make a pairing work, or to fit them into a role. I especially hate it when people muck around with Seto Kaiba's character. I can't count on my fingers and toes how many fanfics I've come across that makes Kaiba into some kind of weak, weepy person, who openly displays friendly or caring emotions to everyone.
2.) The misspelling of names. I don't mind the different variations of the name, whether it's Japanese or English, but it annoys me when people don't bother to look up the proper spelling. Seto and Yugi are usually the ones who get their last names majorly screwed up. I've lost track of how many times I've seen someone spell Seto's name as either Kiba or Kiaba. It's spelled K-A-I-B-A. People tend to spell Yugi's surname as Muto or Moto. It's spelled M-U-T-O-U, people! Even 4kids spelled it the correct way!
3.) When people list two people as a pairing and then pair them with another character or OC.
4.) Self insertions and major OCs. I don't mind OCs when they're minor or background characters because I'll admit sometimes there just isn't a yugioh character that will work, but it gets a little annoying when people pop in their own characters when a yugioh character can play the role just as well. And I don't have a problem with OC villains because, let's face it, most of the bad guys in Yu-Gi-Oh turn out to be sob stories. Kaiba, Dartz, his three henchmen, Pegasus, even Bakura . . . Zorc was basically the ONLY true villain on the show, aside from Aknadin and who (aside from little kids) didn't see THAT coming? So cliché. It's always the uncle.
5.) The whole "yams" nickname everyone gives Yami. His name is NOT pronounced "yammy." Go listen to the season 0 opening song with English subs. There's a line where they say the word darkness. You'll hear them pronouncing it more like "yah-mi."
6.) People always claiming that Yami and Yugi are obviously gay for each other because they hold hands in the manga/anime. In Japan, it is perfectly acceptable for two males to hold hands, no matter what age. Holding hands is a sign of close friendship in Japan, as well as in some parts of Africa and the Middle East, like Saudi Arabia. People need to remember that every culture is different, and not to go assuming things based on their own culture. Flashing the peace sign or giving a thumbs up might be perfectly acceptable in America, but in another country it can get you arrested or beat up. Just remember that.
Mummy . . . Johnny brought a gun to school
He told his friends that it was cool
And when he pulled the trigger back
It shot with a great crack
Mummy I was a good girl
I did what I was told
I went to school, I got straight A's, I even got the gold
But mummy when I went to school that day, I never said goodbye
I'm sorry mummy I had to go, but mommy please don't cry
When Johnny shot the gun he hit me and another
And all because he got the gun from his older brother
Mummy please tell daddy that I love him very much
And please tell Chris, my boyfriend, that it wasn't just a crush
And tell my little sister that she is the only one now
And tell my dear sweet grandmother that I'll be waiting for her now
And tell my wonderful friends that they were always the best
Mummy I'm not the first I'm no better than the rest
Mummy tell my teachers I won't show up for class
And never to forget this and please don't let this pass
Mummy why'd it have to be me no one deserves this
Mummy warn the others, mummy I left without a kiss
And mummy tell the doctors I know they really did try
I think I even saw a doctor trying not to cry
Mummy I'm slowly dying with a bullet in my chest
But mummy please remember I'm in heaven with the rest
Mummy I ran as fast as I could when I heard that crack
Mummy, listen to me if you would
I wanted to go to college
I wanted to try things that were new
I guess I'm not going with daddy
On that trip to the new zoo
I wanted to get married
I wanted to have a kid
I wanted to be an actress
Mummy I wanted to live
But mummy I must go now
The time is getting late
Mummy tell my Chris
I'm sorry but I had to cancel the date
I love you mummy I always have
I know you know it's true
Mummy all I wanted to say is "mummy I love you"
In memory of the Columbine students that were lost
Please if you would, pass this around
I'd be happy if you could
Don't smash this on the ground
If you pass this on, maybe people will cry
Just keep this in heart
For the people that didn't get to say "goodbye"
And Now you have two choices:
1) re-post and show you care
2)or just ignore it and show people that the place your heart should be is bare
(Please just copy and paste this on to your site and show that you care)

This is really sweet...
When a girl is quiet, a million things are running through her mind.
When a girl is not arguing, she is thinking deeply.
When a girl looks at you with her eyes full of question, she is wondering how long you will be around.
When a girl answers "I'm fine." after a few seconds, she is not fine at all.
When a girl stares at you, she is wondering why you are lying.
When a girl rests her head on your chest, she is wishing for you to be her's forever.
When a girl wants to see you everyday, she wants to be pampered.
When a girl says "I love you." she means it.
When a girl says "I miss you." nobody could miss you more than that.
Life only comes around once, so make sure you spend it with the right person.
Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, and calls you back when you hang up on him.
The guy who will stay awake just to watch you sleep.
Wait for the guy who kisses your forehead,
Who wants to show you off to the world when you are in your sweats.
The one who holds your hand in front of his friends and is constantly reminding you of how much he cares about you and how lucky he is to have you there for him.
The one who turns to his friends and declares "That's her.".
If you read this, you have to repost it, guy or girl, or you will have bad luck for the rest of your life.
If you repost this, in five minutes your true love will call or message you.
Tonight at midnight, they will realize that they love you.
Something good will happen at approximately 1:42 pm tomorrow, and it could happen anywhere.
So get ready for the biggest shock of your life.
If you don't repost this, you will be cursed with relationship problems for all of eternity.
Repost this to your profile, and spare yourself the emotional stress

I am the girl that doesn't go to school dances, or games, and when I do go, I sit in a corner and read a book.
I am the girl that spends most of her free time reading, writing, or doing other activities that most teenagers wouldn't call normal.
I am the girl that doesn't spend all her time on Facebook, or talking to a friend on a phone.
I am the girl that has stopped to smell the flowers and admire the beauty of the landscape after the rains.
BUT I am also the girl who knows and is proud to be who she is, doesn’t care if people call her weird, who loves reading and writing and doing the things that no one seems to have the time to do any more, who loves and is obsessed with books, who can express herself better with words than actions, who doesn't need a boy to complete her, and knows the importance of the little things.

Okay, she doesn't exactly fear them, she just has some weird OCD about touching dirty socks and being touched by a sock that's on a person's foot. She's fine when they're on her own feet, although she hardly wears any. She usually goes around in flip-flops.
LOL's of Fanfiction
- Reading a vampire fic where the author accidently misspells "stakes" as "steaks." It happens a lot and gets me laughing every time because I always get this image of the hunter whacking a vampire with a piece of meat and screaming "DIE!" No offense to anyone who has done this. It's one of those little things that always manages to make me smile after a bad day.
People always seem to make the same grammar mistakes no matter where I go, so I thought that (on the slim possibility that anyone is actually reading my profile) that I'd try to clarify some of them for those who can't tell one from the other.
1.) There, their, and they're seem to be the most common of grammar mistakes. So to remember the differences, here are a few tips:
- 'There' indicates a place opposite of here. For example, "The book is over there." To remember it, remember that "there" is a place, and place and there both have the letter 'e' at the end. Also, the word 'there' has the word 'here' in it.
- 'Their' indicates that something belongs to another person. For example, "It's their book." Since the letter "I" appears in the word "their," a tip to help you remember is to think the phrase, "I" am a "person, thereby connecting the letter "I" to the word "person" to whom the item in question belongs.
- 'They're' is just another way of saying "They are . . ." To remember this, think of the apostrophe (the little comma -like symbol between y and r) as the letter a. Or, try repeating the sentence to yourself, using "they are" instead of there/their/they're, and see if it makes sense. If it does, then it's "they're" if it isn't, it's one of the other two.
2.) The confusion between where and were is easy to understand, because when 'were' is used as a prefix, such in werewolf, it is pronounced the same as the word 'where' although it's pronounced differently as a word by itself.
- 'Where' is asking the location of something or someone. Such as "Where did you go?" or "Where is the book?" A good way to remember this is that 'where' is almost always used in some sort of question concerning location.
- 'Were' usually indicates the possibility of doing or being something, or having done so. Such as "If I were to buy this book then I wouldn't have enough money to buy the other book" or "Were you at the mall today?"
3.) Your and you're are also one of the most common mistakes.
- Your is an indication of possession, much like their. Example: "This is your book."
- You're is actually short for 'you are' as in "You're reading a book." Same as they're, just imagine the apostrophe as the letter a. But if you're still having trouble remembering which one to use, try switching the word to 'you are' and then read the sentence and see if it make sense. If it doesn't, use your, if it does, then it's you're.
4.) Site and sight.
- Site indicates a particular place. Such as "There is a construction site by the mall" or "It was on this site (i.e. website) that I read a book." Place and site both have an 'e' at the end, to help you remember.
- Sight is the act of seeing something. For example, "I caught sight of the book I was looking for on the wrong shelf."
5.) Reign and rain.
- Reign is what you call a period of time in which a monarch rules. Example: "The Queen's reign lasted twenty years." It can also be used to refer to a monarch's influence/authority over something, sort of like a synonym to the word rule. Example: "Pharaoh Atemu reigns over Egypt." A tip to help you remember is that reign has the letter 'g' in it, as does the word king.
- Rein can refer to the strip of leather used to control a horse's direction (usually spelled with an 's' as they're used in pairs), such as "I pulled the horse's reins to slow it down." It can also refer to a person's restraint, as in "You need to rein in your temper."
6.) Quiet and quite
- Quiet is when there is an absence of sound. Such as "It's quiet in the library." To try to remember, trying thinking that "quiet" has an "it" sound to the word, which looks similar to the "et" at the end of quiet.
-Quite is word usually used to describe something to a greater extent, although the dictionary defines it as meaning completely/absolutely. For example, "It's quite cold outside" or "I'm not quite finished reading this book."
But! Without further ado to my rantings, please, enjoy the stories. They are here for your entertainment, and feel free to review or flame. Flames are always useful to make s'mores and hot chocolate regardless of what time of month it is. (I'm not kidding. Middle of July, my friends are all sweating to death in the living room, and I come in with a mug of hot chocolate wearing pants and a jacket, and told them I was cold. --Something's wrong with my body temperature. *sweatdrops*)
One of my favorite fanfiction quotes of all time:
"Yes, when faced with another Shade I shall perform a startling pirouette and they will flee in terror before me. Great realms of victory shall be mine." – Yami from 300 Hysterically Giggling Elves, by Shyranae.
