Penrose Quinn


Just call me Penrose.


Greetings! I am none other than just your average writer and a fan of a wide variety of fandoms.


ANNOUNCEMENT:

Currently very obsessed with HxH (Togashi is a genius. Ican'teven—). Disillusioned for the first semester. Yes, I've been writing a lot of angst lately. Finishing chapters for a dragon that rises from a small stream, Blue Eyes, and a couple of one-shots.

Oh, I'm here for now before eventual hiatus comes.

For now, updates remain sporadic.

8/17/17: Hello there. I might be in hiatus for maybe a few weeks or so because of health issues and well, RL. College is really taking a toll on me this year and I still have important papers to attend to for my exchange program in Hong Kong. Okay. This doesn't necessarily mean I'm going to leave for a year like the last time. I'll still try to post something if I can, however don't expect the ongoing stories for awhile. Conceptualizing and planning does take time and there's also the editing and all that. I hope you could be patient with me for now. Thanks for understanding.


Imagine that the world is made of love

Now, imagine it isn't

Imagine where everything goes wrong

— has their backs against the walls

— where everything is pain

— where everyone acts selfishly

Imagine a story

Not of good against bad

But of need against need

Where everyone is at cross purpose

Where everyone is to blame.


SPECIAL BONUS CHAPTER

Basically, if I reach 10 chapters, there's going to be one because I can't even reach the ten-chapter mark yet with my slow updates. So for all the readers who still stick with the story despite my late shortcomings, this is a present for you (and also for me because it's really fun).

That bonus chapter would act more like a one-shot and it won't really effect the story. If the reception of that particular story is good, I might not mind announcing for requests or putting up polls for that chapter. The fun part is that the theme could be anything.

Would there be anymore than reaching 10 chapters? Of course. Heck, it could be 20 chapters and I wouldn't really mind. Well, it depends if I reach that count anyway.


MULTI-CHAPTER STORIES


How Do You Court A Man?

Anime: Kuroshitsuji

Summary: This was the end, I know. Though it would not be as tragic if not for her contribution. In other words, she would be the end of me Based on what happened to the Viscount after the Campania.

Pairing: Aleister x OC

Genre: Romance/Friendship/Light Humor/Some bit of Hurt and Comfort every now and then

AU

Notes: Yup. It's cheesy, over-the-top, and downright old-fashioned. But, seriously, what more can you expect when the Viscount is the main character? It's purely self-indulgent (by that, I mean it's not as serious as my other stories but I still enjoy writing it for the heck of it) and also one of the oldest ones I've written so far. A quick warning though; since this is old, it is still subject to slow buildup, purple prose, and head-hopping. And yes, I didn't edit the old stuff. This is done out of pure indulgence.

4/25/17 UPDATE: Yes, I posted something after two years. It's rewritten, simple as that. (Yeah, I know Comedy and Hurt&Comfort is a weird combination, but trust me, I'll make it work)


Double-edged Sword

Anime: Akatsuki no Yona

Summary: She was like a double-edged sword, constantly battling on two sides of herself―a friend and a traitor.

Pairing: OC x ?

Genre: Romance/Adventure/Angst/Tragedy/Drama

Follows Plot/Slight Canon-Divergent

Notes: This is one of those stories that I had to meticulously plan all throughout. I mean, everything written and every word and action here and there is relevant. But I suppose it's because the plot mainly focuses on Soo-Won's side because I've always been curious of the way how he handled things while Yona is off being robin hood. Imperial court politics, economics, and warfare are my thing. In a sense, I'm very intrigued in writing about it since little knowledge is given about it in the actual manga. And really I'm a sucker for complex characters like Soo-Won. He's glorious.


Daughter of Mars

Anime: Magi

Summary: There was a saying that power resides to where men believe it resides and even a woman can cast a very large shadow upon a country.

Pairing: OC x ?

Genre: Adventure/Angst/Tragedy

AU

Notes: This is just an experiment story which I've decided to take seriously. Like another story of mine, I had to meticulously plan this one out. It's an experiment because this story is mostly inspired by an original story I've been planning out recently. But for the most part, I enjoy it because it handles politics, warfare, and the like. The characters are what intrigue me in this story, I guess. Like Magi, all the characters are growing and creating an endless string of relationships. Here, well, every event affects those relationships, each having there own consequences. Another thing, the lack of Fanalis fanfictions upsets me.

Status: Discontinued


For The Worse

Anime: Bungou Stray Dogs

Summary: Perhaps, it would have been the best choice if she did not try to stop a stranger from committing suicide because little did she know that unknowingly saving a detective costed her a wayward turn to her plans.

Pairing: OC x ?

Genre: Mystery/Crime/Angst

Notes: Basically, my amateur attempt in Noir fiction.

AU

I know what you're thinking: Oh but look, you put a romance genre in this story. Here's the thing. When I made this story, I focused more on the plot and, well, the string of strained relationships of each character. I added romance before because it's a split second decision. I wasn't sure about it at first. But, hey, maybe it could work out. The issue I have is that the romance won't affect the story that much and maybe it would look irrelevant. Like I did with another story, the romance will be subtle and as much as possible, I'll try to make it feel organic and complicated all the same since the mood I aim in this story is supposedly gritty and realistic.


Moments of Being

Anime: Bungou Stray Dogs

Summary: Fitzgerald gets an unexpected visit from an old friend.

Pairing: Slight Fitzgerald/Zelda and Virginia/Leonard

Genre: Friendship/Drama/Hurt and Comfort

Follows Plot/Slight Canon-Divergent

Notes: It's a shameless fix-it fic. That, and a shameless story where both my favorite authors actually meet. To sum it up, this fanfiction is downright shameless and I like it. I'd always wanted to write a story of two friends with conflicting beliefs, like a Professor X and Magneto thing. Just two completely different adults in paralleling circumstances yet somehow manage to be friends. To me, that's better than any love story.


a dragon rises from a small stream

Anime: Akatsuki no Yona

Summary: Father told me once that life is a running stream, and like calm water, one must flow to its current and leave no ripple behind lest one leads a path adrift and off course. I agreed, except for the latter.

Pairing: OC x ?

Genre: Friendship/Drama/Hurt and Comfort/Adventure

AU

Notes: It's my first SI/OC fanfic. Funnily enough, my source of inspiration for this was when I found myself disliking Lili/Soo-won ships and especially the not-so-subtle shipbaiting Kusanagi has done with this pair thus far. I understand, but it's just that I can't get over the fact that Lili's a bit too immature and naive for someone like Soo-won. Despite this, I found that there's some potential in Lili's character that hasn't been executed in a way I wanted to. I love AnY, but I believe some characters need to shine too. So I got curious, I started typing, and the rest was history.

Oh, albeit my reasons, this doesn't necessarily mean Lili/Soo-won is the endgame. Then again, I'm not sure if there should be a pairing. The story's not really a romance, but it's more of a self-discovery story. Lots of personal feelings and crying. I'm going through my deepest, darkest memories just by writing this.

twisted by FivePastTwo reviews
What happened was only between the two of them, yet fate had different plans. To hate the monster that killed her whole family was the acceptable thing. To offer forgiveness was an act border lining insanity and nobility. But to undeniably fall for him was nothing short of traitorous.
