Poll: Ok, I'm stuck here- what story should I update next? (Ok, so expect a new Bane of Khaos chapter soon!) Vote Now!
Author has written 15 stories for Fairy Tail, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Harry Potter, Naruto, and Katekyo Hitman Reborn!.
So... A little about me, eh? Would you like that? Say please...
Real Name: Nom Tasty (No, seriously my name is that, my parents were icing sugar and a baking tray...)
Age: I have one of these!
Gender: I have one of these too!
Home: North England.
About me: I love reading. I love reading real books, fanfiction, manga, light novels, comics... You name it, I like it. I also like Japan - not because of the manga and all that (even though that contributes to it) but because of the rich culture and unique lifestyle.
Manga: So manga is sorta like a cheat for me. I mean, it's all the joy of reading (the story, the characters, the thrill) without the sometimes annoying waffle in books. Also, I love the artistic ways that some can present the characters, how you can visualise the movements without actually using your brain.
My favorite manga (I shortened down the list to just well known ones, believe me there are so many more I could list) would have to be:
Bokura no Kiseki (OMGOMGOMG)
The Breaker and The Breaker New Waves
Kaichou wa Maid-sama
Ajin (a MUST READ!)
Katekyo Hitman Reborn
Books: Ah, books. My deep, dark passion. I love romance books, I love adventure books, I love mystery books, I love crime books, I love fantasy books, I love non-fiction books, I love all books. Books... Nothing gets better. If I like a book, I don't stop reading it until I'm done, which is usually only a couple hours.
My favorite authors (and series) get short listed into four:
Garth Nix - The Old Kingdom (my first and one true love)
Tamara Pierce - The Immortals (one of the best I've ever read)
Rick Riodan - Percy Jackson and the Olympians
JK Rowling - Harry Potter (on everyone's list, but for a reason!)
Fanfics: Ah, fanfics. I love them. I love how so many unique stories can be created from one idea. Even overused ideas can be brilliant if they're well written. That's all I care about, a well written story. Oh, and usually fluff. I need me some fluff!
The types of fanfics I enjoy are:
When a character (preferably the main character) is forced to relive their life until that point, but with a difference (stronger, different powers, etc.)
When the pairing don't dance around their feelings (that is just plain annoying)
Gender swaps (yet very few are well written, and VERY hard to find)
Naruto: Good: Team 7 and Kakashi overpower everything. Gaara, Shikamaru and Kiba are cool, too. The Jinchuuriki decide to team up are the BEST. Bad: Hinata becoming Naruto's twoo wuve and den dey kisu! also sasuke is evil and sakura is a loud bitch ugh she smells.
Harry Potter: Good: Muggle's go to war with Wizards. Voldemort is actually not that bad. Black family is SUPER powerful. Bad: Dumbledore is a evil lord who always says "harry my boy" and den harry soul bonds to all girls in hogwarts except ginny. All wealeys die cos they want harry's money but the twins don't cos dey cool and bill and charlie are over looked. Hero snape cos he totally didnt stalk like a married woman nor scare a boy so much his boggart transformed into him not lunatics that tortured his parents.
Katekyo Hitman Reborn: Good: Tsuna learning how to be a good mafia boss, maybe some TYL stuff. Bad: Tsuna has a younger twin but cos he a dame that no one likes he becomes boss but he secretly a superstar that can do anything and all mafia want him!!11!
As you can tell, I'm being sarcastic in the Bad bits.
Now, pairings (I'll restrict it to just ones I read commonly):
Katekyo Hitman Reborn (I mainly just like Tsuna x ? stories)
Tsuna x Xanxus
Tsuna x Reborn
Tsuna x Hibari
Tsuna x Ryohei
Tsuna x Hana
Tsuna x Kyoko
Tsuna x Murkuro
Tsuna x Gietto
Gokudera x Haru
Naruto (Mainly Naruto x ? stories)
Naruto x Gaara
Naruto x Shikimaru
Naruto x Kiba
Naruto x Kakashi
Naruto x Sakura x Sasuke
Naruto x Sakura x Sasuke x Kakashi
Naruto x Kyuubi
Naruto x Haku
Naruto x Hinata
Naruto x Tsunade
Naruto x Kushina
Favourite characters from ALL areas, not in order:
Tsunade (Naruto) - I don't know why, but I absolutely love her. She is amazing, and probably the best Naruto character.
Nico Di Angelo (Percy Jackson and the Olympians) - He is so great. Sometimes he is too angsty in storys, but he is one of the best characters in the books.
Hana Kurokawa (Katekyo Hitman Reborn!) - She is great. Probably my favourite character in the series, yet she is normally just pushed to the side in most fics and even in the anime and manga. Which is wrong.
Draco Malfoy (Harry Potter) - He is downright the best character in the whole seven books. He's grown on me, and now I love him.
Lireal (The Old Kingdom) - She lost her hand to save the world. How could you NOT love her?
Hilda (Beelzebub) - A demon in a maid outfit to serve the future Demon Lord. Enough said.
Zeref (Fairy Tail) - Evil Mage who has tried to destroy the world? Bitch, please, if he doesn't deserve to be on this list, who does?
Ulquiorra (Bleach) - He was too awesome for the manga and was killed for it.
Hidan (Naruto) - Again, I don't know why. He is just one of my favourites. JASHIN!
Kyouya Hibari (Katekyo Hitman Reborn) - Do I even need to explain?
The Seven Sins of Fanfiction:
I mean, what the hell? Why does it need to be in manga fanfics? I mean, I can understand if it is important to the story (like crossover language boundaries, names of places or people, suffixes, or just basically things that don't really have an English equivalent) but why do people write 'Ohayou' instead of hello, 'Sumimasen' instead of sorry, and 'Arigatou' instead of thank you? It's おはよう, すみません and ありがとう! Romaji isn't a language, it's a translation aid, so why is it used? It's annoying, and should just be kept to author notes or other things that can be skipped. If it was meant to be used, there would be an option for it under the language section.
II: Text Speak
I've only seen this in a few stories, but it is so annoying. I mean, why do people write 'u' instead of you? It's only two more letters! It's not hard! If you're writing on your phone, either be prepared to take a long time to write I properly, or just use a computer, or something of the sort!
III: Saying it is an AU
Ok, I know this sounds slightly picky, but honestly, it's kinda obvious. I mean, if you want to get technical, every Fanfic story is AU. Alternate Universe means when 'something is not how it is', so like many what-if bits, but it also means anything that is different. So, anything from a complete story change to a small Oneshot in-between chapters, if it is not canon, it is AU. So, for me, I like the facts to be clearly stated (well major changes anyway), so yeah, I'm picky.
IV: Removing Key Elements
What I mean by this is when stories are created with the main attraction being took out (such as magic from Harry Potter and Fairy Tail, Mythology from Percy Jackson, Charter from The Old Kingdom and others of the such). I mean, why? Very very (extreme emphasis on the verys) few fanfics are good when that happens, normally when a complete new element is added. So, yeah. Just don't.
V: People Telling Authors to "Hurry Up!"
This gets on my nerves. Ok people, don't take offence, but the majority of people (I mean like there's only 0.1% of people who don't) who write are regular people. They are not the original authors, and thus so not bound by deadlines for next chapters. They have other things in life (because, surprise, most people have school or jobs to do, and they take priority over hobbies) and so they can't update fast. I can understand it if people are worried about a story being abandoned, but that's it.
VI: Author Notes Larger than the Chapter
Ok, why do people do this? I can understand if it is a notice, review responses or a big thank you (which doesn't need to happen every chapter) but why do people fill it up with crap? Yes, I myself do enjoy a long A/N, but I feel that my chapter length is acceptable for that, right?
VII: 'Reading the Book' Fanfics
Here I don't mean it in a bad way... Well yes I do, but still... Anyway, what I mean is that it is a plot for those who... well... are uncreative, those who can't think of an original point and decide to use the books and add 'funny' comments to certain places to make it funny. I don't have anything against them, hell I'd love to write one, but to me they feel cheap and somewhat an easy way out of thinking up a plot.
NOTICE ABOUT MY STORYS:
Slash is something that is very temperamental - you either love it, or you hate it, no middle ground. However, what I've noticed is that many storys are very biased, in the was that wither ALL the couples are slash, or NONE of the couples are slash, no middle ground. Mine won't be like that. If I write a slash story, there will hetro pairings, and in non-slash story, there will still be slash pairings. This will be because there is very little to no chance that EVERYONE will be straight, or for NO ONE to be straight. The world isn't like that. So thus my storys won't be like that. It won't be descriptive, but there will be kissing AT A MINIMUM.
II: Dark! Storys
Ah... Dark! storys... I love these. Most of my storys will be Dark, twisted things. Why? Because I love evil and when it overpowers everything and destroys the world. There is a severe lack of dark storys out there, so it's my job (self allocated) to fix it!
A Fairy Tale (Fairy Tail and Percy Jackson and the Olympians Crossover): (Chapter 1/?)
The ancients are stirring. Beings older than the gods are waking. War is breaking, and it's spilling across worlds. The only thing that's stopping the collapse of both worlds are the half-bloods… and a guild of insane mages. That does not look good. Earthland centric!
Another Malfoy (Harry Potter): (Chapter 1/?)
Things were turning out very peculiar for Hermione. A Muggle Studies class quickly escalates when it is revealed she was adopted. After using her blood, she finds out that she is really Pureblood Delphina Malfoy, older sister to Draco Malfoy. And promptly faints. Hermione/Blaise Zabini or Hermione/Theodore Nott.
Bane of Khaos (Percy Jackson and the Olympians): (Chapter 8/?)
His existence was hidden from the world. When the Great Wars were thought to be lost, he was their final weapon. Sent to the future by Ananke and Chronos, he arrived at a time where his family lie in chains from the Gods, pawns of Khaos. Now Perseus, the firstborn of Tartarus and Gaia wants revenge, and even Khaos herself will tremble... Eventual Zoë x Percy! T for language.
Holds a Slash pairing (Hylas and Heracles), and is sorta DarkIf depending on how you look at it... It is Percy and the Titans V The Gods and Chaos... Yet it isn't Dark!...
Iron Child (Fairy Tail): (Chapter 3/?)
To prove that he is truly a member of Fairy Tail, Master Makarov chooses Gajeel to accompany Lucy while she trains. Years later, they return, with another person. A small boy, with blonde hair and red eyes... GajeelxLucy, some GrayxErza if you squint.
This is a one where I wanted to cut out all the 'falling for each other' crap, and focus on the later life bit with children.
Kiss of Death (Harry Potter): (Chapter 1/?)
Harry Potter died. For real, this time. Now he finds out he is Master of Death through a ridiculous loophole, and now must go to another universe to be able to die. Now stuck in a life he didn't want, with Death himself trying to court him, Harry has decided that he is just destined to be special. Harry/Death, includes many gods, OC galore! SLASH!
My Dark Queen (Fairy Tail): (Chapter 8/?)
Fairy Tail banished Lucy from their guild before the S-class exam. Heartbroken and wanted by the Magic Council, she crosses paths with someone she thought was her enemy. Zeref. He trains her in the ways of dark magic, and 7 years pass. Read inside for details! Dark!LucyxZeref. Slow Romance/Adventure/Horror/Drama/Lil' bit of Humor. Character death, evil characters and warped ideas.
Ah, the mother of all Dark! fics (that I've wrote)! Evil Lucy? Check! Insanity? Check! Character death? Check! Lust? Check! Mind control? Check! Torture? Check! Cannibalism? Check! Limb loss? Check! Betrayal? Check! Enslavement? Check!
Never Insult the Gods (Harry Potter and Percy Jackson and the Olympians Crossover): (Chapter 1/?)
The Gods have been insulted by the wizards one too many times and want to teach them a lesson. But these are the Gods we're talking about, so they want to have fun, so they decide to send their own to the Tri-wizard Tournament, to show off what divine blood can really do.
The Potter That Wasn't (Harry Potter and Katekyo Hitman Reborn Crossover): (Chapter 3/?)
AU After his third year in Hogwarts, Harry discovers the truth. He is not a Potter. Nor is he an Evans. Everything about his life was a lie. His true name? Toko Sasagawa, twin brother of Kyoko Sasagawa. Manipulative!Dumbledore and Weasley Bashing, Good!Ron and Hermione and Snape (sort of).
This, I just wanted to write something new. I love both these categories, so I though why not? It's going to be Katekyo Hitman Reborn orientated with flecks of Harry Potter.
Physical Forms (Naruto): (Chapter 3/?)
"Kirigakure. The Village Hidden in the Mist. Also known as the Village of the Bloody Mist. And my brother was Zabuza." OMC Self-Insert.
When Earth Meets Stars (Fairy Tail): (Chapter 1/?)
AU. Unknown to everyone, Lucy and Gajeel are mated. No one knows that they met before the Phantom Lord attack, and things are fine. And when they met again during the attack… Gajeel shows just how loyal he is. Lucy/Gajeel.
Never Meant To Be (Fairy Tail)
The Bathroom (Fairy Tail)
ADOPTABLE (PM ME):
Forgotten Memories (Fairy Tail):
Hmm, not a fan of NaLu storys anymore. Hope it can go to a good home!

I am doing serious studying, so expect no frequent updates. Sorry
UPDATE: (March 2017)
Wow... It's been a while... Sorry Uni has been hectic and I have very little time right now... I'll try to update soon but no promises...
MY UPDATE RATE:
As most of you can see, my update rate is ridiculous. This is because I update when I want. I don't care what people say, this is what I do. Unless it specifically says ABANDONED or HIATUS, it will be updated in the future. Or in the WAY future. Whatever. Thank you.
