Author has written 8 stories for Mulan, Prince of Persia, NCIS, Star Wars, RWBY, and Naruto.
So I should probably give you guys the "essential" information. I guess. What even qualifies as essential information?
I'm a Christian. I'm in college. I love music and books. Anything with ideas really. I used to be a percussionist in high school. I enjoyed playing the timpani, the sound was quite satisfying.
I answer every review I get. Even if you just leave something like "Nice story," I'm going to respond with a thank you. I always answer questions, so feel free to ask me anything, and if I don't reply it's unintentional and feel free to PM me or contact me again. If you have something negative to say about my writing, I would appreciate it if you could be sure to leave a penname with such criticism. This is not so I can whine about your criticisms. Rather, it allows me to address your concerns, calmly and rationally, and that way I can ask you questions about how to make the writing better. Leaving an anonymous review just makes that an impossibility, and then your well-constructed criticisms potentially miss the mark or do not help as much as they could.
I have a fictionpress account if anyone is interested in that. Penname is "The Furthest City Light." It's mostly poetry. Mostly amateur poetry. Mostly sucky amateur poetry. Enjoy.
On a side note, I have a fanfiction friend who's an awesome writer and is being nominated for a fan fiction grammy. Yeah, I know. She's awesome. The story she's being nominated for is called "This Time, for Sure" in the How to Train Your Dragon fandom, and here's the nominating site: fan fiction Grammy . weekly . com / nominate . html

Honestly though I'm really picky about my books. And usually I either like something or hate it with every fiber of my being. And I go on rants. I'm sorry.
Honestly haven't seen a lot. Just Bleach, Naruto, RWBY (if that counts) and Attack on Titan. I love Attack on Titan. It is wonderful and horrifying at the same time. I've also seen a little Fairy Tail, which is...kind of the exact opposite.

FanFics!: (In order of publication)
For One, For None: Its in the works, and a multi-chapter fic. Go check it out if you're interested. Word of warning though, it's on indefinite hiatus and under heavy construction. I just can't seem to write for it. This one is for the Mulan fandom.
Crimson Snow: A short one-shot (a drabble really) for the Mulan fandom about that scene where Shang nearly executes her, from Mulan's perspective.
Through the Ages: I actually haven't watched NCIS in a long time. My friend told my that I should, but I really didn't want to miss anything. Thus, I am going through the ENTIRE series in order to define Tony and Gibbs's relationship better. And because it's fun. Don't forget the fun.
Crossroads of Destiny: This one is for Prince of Persia, and it's about Dastan's run through the marketplace in order to save his friend. I really like this movie, and it's too bad that it hasn't gotten more attention, because I really like the characters, and the setting and all of their relationships are so interesting.
Yugen: A fanfic for Star Wars which is basically a guilt-ridden afterlife!Anakin talking to Obi-Wan and Yoda about his legacy, and what his whole journey means. It may be completely negated by the new movies, and no I'm not happy about those. For now, it could take place within the cannon universe. It's just a one-shot but it is my favorite thing posted. It's also the least popular. Hint. Hint hint.
Fodder: A one-shot about a potentially humorous confrontation which mutated into equal parts death threats and philosophical discussion. I'm keeping up with the anime tradition nicely.
The Magnificent Adventures of the Namikaze Three: This is a multi-chapter Naruto fic that I thought up. I don't usually do AU's or even read them so this is kind of new territory for me. It's also supposed to be humor, which is not readily apparent from the prologue. Basically, it's about what could have been, if Minato and Kushina didn't die the day Naruto was born.
Thus Opened the Hearts of Many: Its a series of one-shots about how Naruto's precious people came to love him. That's quite literally it. The genera vary, but generally I strive to include a little bit of everything.
Can I put a general disclaimer on here? I'm fairly certain disclaimers are superfluous, but in the interests of redundancy: While reading my stories, if you recognize a character, a place, a brand-name, a song, book, author, actor or actress, director, playwright, comedian or anything else you could possibly recognize, chances are, I don't own it. Actually, I'm positive I don't own it, seeing as I have no patents under my name.
