Author has written 12 stories for Digimon, Harry Potter, Pokémon, Merlin, Naruto, and KonoSuba: God's Blessing on This Wonderful World.

"No story lives unless someone wants to listen. The stories we love best live on in us forever. So whether you come back by page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be here to welcome you home." - J.K. Rowling

Update 19-09-17: So quick update here, actual work on the first chapter for the spiritual successor to "Those Linked/Connected by Darkness" have finally begun, and will be posted as a new story under the name "Those Touched by Darkness" once it's done. I have also read through my notes for the story "Kari's New Friend", and might rework and post a new version of that story as well under the name "Hikari's New Friend" if I get the time, but my main focus will be on the other story.

Anime I've watched (that I can recall): One Piece (up to Whole Cake Island Arc), Naruto ("Original" and Shippuden), Pokemon (Everything except Kalos), Digimon (Adventure up to Adventure Tri, except Fusion), Sword Art Online (Aincrad Arc up to Alicization), Yu-Gi-Oh (Duel Monsters up to 5Ds), Konosuba (Seasons 1 and 2), Re:Zero (waiting for Season 2), Isekai wa Smartphone (Yumina is best girl!), Steins;Gate ("Original" and Zero), Kaguya-Sama: Love is War (Can confirm that it is), The Rising of the Shield Hero (Season 2 and 3 confirmed!), Undefeated Bahamut Chronicles (Wish I hadn't...), Phantasy Star Online 2 (Glorified advertisement), Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma (All 3 seasons and cooked some of the dishes), Rascal does not dream of Bunny Girl-senpai (Or does he?), The Devil is a Part-Timer (You mean his job or his girlfriends?), Fairy Gone (It's GONE from my memory), Hachigatsu no Cinderella Nine (Who put wool in Tsubasa's nose?), Re:Creators ("A Modern Classic", someone said), Yamada-Kun and the Seven Witches (Yamada-Kun and the Plot Convenience), Quintessential Quintuplets (#TeamNino)

Books I've enjoyed (to varying degrees): Harry Potter ("Philosopher's Stone" up to "Cursed Child"), Ranger's Apprentice ("The Ruins of Gorlan" up to "The Emperor of Nihon-Ja"), Lord of the Rings ("The Fellowship of the Ring" up to "The Return of the King"), Chronicles of Narnia ("The Witch and the Lion"), The Darkest Age ("The Coming of Dragons" up to "The Circle of Stone"), Twilight ("Twilight")

Movies I've watched (and almost remember): Star Wars ("The Phantom Menace" up to "The Last Jedi"), Harry Potter ("The Philosopher's Stone" up to "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald"), Twilight ("Twilight" up to "Breaking Dawn Part 2"), X-Men ("The movie" up to "Days of Future's Past, NOT including "The Wolverine")

Games I've played (and still do on occasion): The Elder Scrolls ("Skyrim"), Fire Emblem ("Awakening", "Fates", "Echoes" and "Three Houses"), Kingdom Hearts ("Original" up to "Dream Drop Distance", NOT including "Re:Coded"), Pokemon ("Red/Blue/Green" up to "Sun/Moon"), Call of Duty ("Modern Warfare" up to "Black Ops II"), Minecraft (Alpha and Beta testing, not much after that), Last Chaos USA (Initus Server, player name "Crossy"), Honkai Impact 3rd (Kiana is best girl. Fite me)

My thoughts on:

*The following segment will contain opinions, which I know some people on the internet doesn't like. If you are one of those people, I just wanted to let you know that you are under no obligation to read this, nor are you under any obligation to agree with anything I write here.

- Author's Notes: I don't like long Author's Notes. I know I am notorious for using them myself and that my opinion on this may seem extremely hypocritical in light of that, but I've read some stories on this site where the AN made up almost 50% of the chapter length. In some cases, long notes may be warranted, but if you need to explain what happened in your chapter in your Author's Note, then personally I think that the chapter itself failed to live up to its' purpose. I am aware that this has been the case for some of my own works, and I will do my best to avoid this in the future. Apologies if anyone has been annoyed by this in the past.

- Shipping Wars: Shipping certain characters have always and will always be part of what makes reading and writing fanfiction enjoyable for a lot of people, myself included. However, over the years I've come to question the legitimacy of some ships. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion on the matter of course, and my personal opinion is that if you are going to compare two ships, then they should be based on reasons from the canon material. That's not to say you can't enjoy ships that aren't based on canon material, but I don't think it's fair to argue that one ship is superior to another based on things not found in canon, at least not if your argument is about which ship would've worked best in canon.

To make an easy example, I have come across people on this site that would argue to their dying breath that Daphne Greengrass would've been a better girlfriend to Harry Potter than Ginny Weasley was in the books. Based on... what exactly? Daphne shows up for an entire 2 sentences in the books as far as I remember. She was sorted along with the rest of Harry's classmates during the Sorting Ceremony in the Philosopher's Stone, and she took one of her OWL Exams at the same time as Hermione Granger in the Order of the Phoenix, since their names are right next to each other on their year list since both their surnames start with "gr". And that's it unless you count any mention of Astoria as a passive indication that Daphne exists.

Now, I'm not saying that you can't like this pairing. I quite like Harry x Daphne myself actually, and have read and enjoyed a good bunch of stories that use it on this very site. But to argue that canonically, Daphne would've made a better future wife for Harry is just factually wrong in my mind because we know next to nothing about her in canon. I don't care what "headcanon" you may have for her, that is just in your head. If it wasn't told in the source material, or mentioned by the author in an interview or something, then it isn't canon.

As for shipping wars in general, I've never really seen the point in them. People value different things, and our preferences are shaped by these different values, character chips included. That's really all there is to it, as far as I am concerned. I have certain preferences that other people won't agree with, this opinion on Shippings Wars probably one of them. I see no reason to try and force someone else to think exactly like me. I prefer to just let my opinion be known, and then we can agree to either agree or disagree on it.

- The Ice Queen Moniker: This applies to character monikers in general, but the Ice Queen seems to be the most common one. I am not necessarily against its usage, but more often than not I find that it breaks my sense of disbelief, mainly because of the context it's used in. Authors are of course allowed to write however they please as long as it is within the guidelines for this site, but here's my personal thoughts on this topic.

Let's use the aforementioned Daphne Greengrass as an example again. There are times where I find that I don't mind her having this moniker and other times where it really bothers me. I don't really mind it if I am looking at a story set in 3rd year or later, because assuming that the students at Hogwarts are inclined to give each other monikers like this, then at least there would've been time for this one to settle over the years that she's been attending Hogwarts. But I have read a good few stories where Daphne already has this moniker at the start of 1rst year, which I don't buy at all. It feels more like the characters just read the script and learned that Daphne is supposed to be this anti-social and borderline cold character and slapped the moniker on for good measure, and less like it is an actual nickname or "title" that she had earned through her behavior.

- Elitist Fans: Thankfully I haven't personally come across this too much, but I have on occasion been met with disdain or been ridiculed by some "fans" for having enjoyed Sword Art Online a few years ago, or for not having watched JoJo's Bizarre Adventures. There seem to exist this mindset within certain communities, the anime community among them, that certain tastes or opinions are either "right" or "wrong", and if you don't have the "right" opinions you're either stupid, a pleb or both. Apologies for spreading this negativity, but I just wanted to say how much I despise this mindset. People are allowed to like different things, and just because they don't agree with you on this particular topic does not make their opinion on it any less legit.
