Author has written 10 stories for Yu-Gi-Oh.

Secondary account for the Yu-Gi-Oh fanfiction of Secondhand Soul.

Hello everyone. If you're here you're probably aware by now that this is the fanfiction account of The Naked King of tumblr. If you know me, hey, welcome, hope you enjoy your stay! If not then an introduction is probably in order.

So, hello. I'm Rose, which you're free to call me. I'm 20 years old and a college student aiming to earn a degree in professional writing and book publishing, although I might one day return to school to get a degree in Egyptology. I'm a very passionate person who holds to her convictions and am close friends with several authors here, most especially A Perplexing Puzzle and UnnecessaryCheese. I'm probably not for everybody. I have high standards in writing, believe that the characters should be in character most definitely (though there are several different in character interpretations for each), and most significantly believe in the balance of adherence to canon and a pointed personal passion for Yu-Gi-Oh.

A warning to the unversed: I am a shipper. Though I might not be quite so fanatic as what you've heard, as a Tumblarian I am defiantly a shipper. If you're a fellow shipper you should know I don't have anything against your ships. As far as romance goes, canon doesn't mean one iota to me really. The point of shipping in the first place is to explore relationships that were not expanded upon in the canon. That being said, I'm a stickler for the characters acting the way they're supposed to. You won't find a character OOC without reason in my fiction.

That being said, you probably want to know what my ships are. You can see that a bit further down.

Other things that you need to know about me?

Well, I guess that I prefer tragedies to really fluffy stories. I'm also not opposed to writing smut, although rarely is the romance the central point of a story, even if it is, more often than not, a main components. Most of what I write is AU because I love AUs. How alternate it is varies from story to story, though. I have some that are only slightly off canon "what if" alternate timeline sort of stories, to stories that are flat out in different universes.

I also write according to manga canon.

Oh, and I have red hair.

Look After You by A Perplexing Puzzle reviews
When Yuugi wakes up in a foreign land with the Puzzle around his neck and spears pointed at his face, his only goal is to escape. But when he meets a man in a cage, everything he thought and expected from life changes in ways he never could have imagined... Blindshipping. AU.

Ninety-nine Pieces of a Soul reviews
He was ever-changing. A kaleidoscopic picture of a person, shifting from red, to black to a whole new vibrant shade that had no name, but he was always himself, Atem, whose heart shone in the darkness with the pride of 1000 men. And that light? That light would never die [A series of one shots dedicated to exploring the character of Atem in all iterations].

A Dark Millennium reviews
In the universe of "Battle Tactics", these one shots surround the universe of that story and focus on multiple characters at multiple points in time. Pairings might develop at some point, but right now they consist mostly of character development exercises. Space Opera like Star Wars with a Gundam flavor. Enjoy.

Conciliatory reviews
Monarchshipping AU. It's best to read it if you want to know because I honestly don't know if I can explain it to you in any certain terms. It's meant to be hard to follow on purpose - I was playing with a style that forces a reader to make inferences.

I've Got Soul reviews
The first four chapters of the rough draft of Monolith. It's under revision already, but I figured I'd post it here just for fun. This is essentially the story of Pharaoh Atem, written without spoilers. These chapters outline the events before the actual events of "Millennium World". There are no pairings and there may be typos. Novelization. Enjoy!

In a story you can find someone's soul, their anchor, what makes them who they are, because who they are will bleed onto the page and drip from their words like dew. Implied Peachshipping.

Sympathetic Magic reviews
Two alike objects share a powerful bond. For Yuugi Mutou that becomes particularly true when he is whisked away to Ancient Egypt through means he doesn't understand and meets the one person in the world he trusts most; but this is not Nameless Pharaoh, this the God King of Ancient Egypt ...
