Poll: What's better: Shorter updates (around 2000 words or less) a bit more frequently; longer updates (8000-10000) infrequently; or medium-sized updates (2000-5000)? Keep in mind that at the moment, my update length and schedule is very all over the place, even with just one fanfic. If you have other suggestions, feel free to PM me. Vote Now!
Author has written 12 stories for Persona Series, Undertale, OFF, Pokémon, Noragami/ノラガミ, and Homestuck.
Hello, my lovely sons of guns! *finger guns and clicks tongue* Ray here, formerly A Dog in Fox Clothing.
Soz if I don't answer PMs; I use Discord!
My hobbies are writing, drawing, listening to music, role-playing, tabletops and video games. My main fandom is Persona, but I like Pokemon, Homestuck, Code Geass, Undertale and Noragami too, among others. My fave fanfic authors are ones which I aspire to be like or surpass.
I give out reviews occasionally, but not consistently. I usually only stick one or two reviews on a fic and then continue reading until I find something to comment on (either that or I've actually quietly dropped the fic). I also like receiving reviews and comments, and I respond to them via PM. Also feel free to PM me with questions or just to talk, but my track record with PMs has been kinda inconsistent. If you want to talk to me a lot, you can ask me for my Skype handle via PM as well.
I don't take criticism very well; I usually only write or upload work because I want to share it and not because I want criticism. I usually improve on my own the more I write, so it's not something that I need.
Since school's started, it's getting in the way of my updating speed, but I'm doing what I can (when I'm not spontaneously coming up with new ideas when I already have a lot of stuff on my plate).
All my tags for stories are on my profile, so you're in the right place. I usually don't deign to put tags into my summaries or stories because I kinda want them to withstand judgement without being skewed by the actual tags of the story. Also, I swear a lot, including in stories. There's a fair amount of cussing in many of them.
My update schedule goes roughly like this, according to my previous poll: First, P3: Whispers; Persona Blue; P4: Whispers; Looking For Jupiter; and Sword Art Online: Rewritten. Some of these may be interchangeable or subject to dropping. P3: Definitely Not Reset will be updated sporadically, as always. The rest are on hiatus, or I'm probably dropping them.
As for my current poll: I update Whispers with chapter lengths that are all over the place, but I usually have medium length chapters. I am trying out longer chapters so I can pack in more of the stuff that I need to get done rather than splitting it all up and everything coming slowly (sorry, I'm not a particularly fast writer). If you have a suggestion as to how I should go about chapter content, feel free to answer the poll or to PM me.
I run a Youtube channel as well, and I make dramatic readings and crappy Persona music mashups (but the last Bloody Destiny VS Danger Zone one was pretty good).
Current Fanfics and Status!
P3: Whispers - Chapter 49 has been uploaded!
P3, but Minato can talk to Shadows. Warning: Angst, dark themes, Rule of Cool, twists, OCs and there are no pairings. References to mental illness, self-harm and abuse.
Persona Blue - Chapter 4 has been uploaded!
A Persona and Pokemon crossover, with Pokemon Snakewood as inspiration. Personas/Demons use typing, moves, abilities like Pokemon, probably will include Z-Moves and Mega Evolution at some point. Dystopian zombie apocalypse fantasy bullshit.
P4: Whispers - Still thinking about how to put in P4G.
P4, but Yu can talk to Shadows. Warning: OP Yu (probably); Rule of Cool; two pairings, each yaoi and yuri; more lighthearted. Reading previous fic is recommended but not necessary.
Persona 3: Definitely Not Reset - Chapter 7 has been uploaded!
Formerly Natural Born, the idea for this fic changed as I got further in. Since I list the tags in the first chapter of the story (for once), I'll just add this: The summary alone references Reset by Firebreath Fishslap, Fallen Messiah by Nightlyy, Reset clones, OC insert fics (which are sometimes Gary Stu/Mary Sue fics), OP Makoto/Minato fics (this should probably do) and Alone in This World by Changling96 (he wrote the summary of the fanfic so ofc he'd reference himself...). DNR was also originally inspired by Lesser Ninja's My Android Can't Be This Cute. If you're looking for true MinAigis fics, definitely look at this one.
Turn Off Undertale - Hiatus.
Undertale and OFF crossover. The Batter is back, this time in the Underground, ready to erase another world. Focuses on the Batter, the Player (referred to in second person) and Frisk's mentalities, along with the clashing ideologies and interfaces in the two games.
Personastuck - Hiatus.
Persona and Homestuck crossover. Characters from P3 and 4 play SBURB, with focus on game aspects of SBURB and character relationships. Personalities have been tweaked a little, as well as age. Persona 2 and 1 will probably have some cameos, and perhaps cameos from the original Homestuck comic too.
Looking For Jupiter - Planning. Damn, I do that?
A Persona story which takes the existential ideas and concerns of The Personification of Night and makes it into a longer story. The characters from P3 and P4 are gods (so Junpei is Hermes, for example). Noragami-inspired, but not quite a crossover. No pairings planned, since it's going to be awkward pairing up characters unless the mythology inspires it. Summary is basically: The gods are facing iconoclasm. Since they're on the verge of death, they're trying to search for the answer to their lives. Tentative tags: Not much action; character introspection; bit of romance but no pairings.
Sword Art Online: Rewritten - 800 words in.
The Personification of Night - Complete!
Hares of Inaba
Compilation of one-shots. Has all sorts of stuff. Mostly fluff.
Persona 3: Never to Leave - Complete.
It's shit; don't read it. It was my first fanfic that I didn't immediately take down, but it's a warning more than something I'm proud of. Tags? OP Minato; Minato/Mitsuru, Minato/Nyx, Hamuko/Shinjiro; time travel bullshit; OCs; wish fulfilment; Gary-stu... I probably missed something
Days of Darkness - Complete!
My second fic, capitalising on the 'Days of' series by CipherPrinceOfDreams, who was writing Days of Autumn at the time. This fic has almost the same starting premise in that Minato is released from the seal, but the pairing is actually Minato/Nyx. If nothing else, it's kinda entertaining and my first try at OCs, but only read it if you like the pairing.
Days of Chaos - Discontinued.
When I tried writing this, I encountered nothing but problems and I felt like it was straying too far from the original Persona feel. I have decided to use the ideas for this story in my original fiction instead. Sorry 'bout this! Since I've given up on rewriting it, I've re-posted the old chapters and added just a brief summary of what was going to happen later on in the fanfic since I can't complete it.
Residue - Complete!
Short drabble about the genocide run of Undertale. I quite like it, even though it isn't uh... much, I guess.
Forger of Bonds - Complete!
Makotogami, the god of relationships, Ken(shin), his shinki, and Yukari Takeba, the girl Makoto has a crush on. Just a silly crossover with character-inserts from the Persona universe.
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Ring of Fate - Discontinued on FF; continuing on AO3. Whenever I get around to it.
Kinda inspired a little by the Final Fantasy: Ring of Fate game in name, this fic was meant to focus on the adventures of a reformed criminal Bisharp going by the name of Galahad. Heavy references to Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, as the guild members all have some relation to slashing or blades.
