Author has written 4 stories for Naruto.

From America

Joined FF at the start of 2013, but have been a long time fan of fantasy and science fiction works in both literature and cinema. Essentially, my presence in FF was bound to happen eventually.

Although I've graduated university, I have a full time job and (I like to believe) a life outside, so free time isn't always readily available. As a result, I'm more of a reader presence than a writer. I've read through a lot of works, but I still feel inspired now and again to review pieces that stand out to me.

Although I am a pretty big fan of MirSan from InuYasha, my primary focus is Naruto, probably because I believe that Kishimoto has done such a beautiful job in building this alternate world and creating and developing a slew of unique characters, but then declined to develop their interpersonal relationships. I don't blame him for avoiding the subject matter, but just feel that this represents a perfect opportunity for the FF community to fill in their own blanks.

Favorite Pairings:

ShikaXTema - OTP (and CANON!!!) - ST = sexual tension. I'm a pretty big fan of the confident, tomboyish, badass female character getting blindsided by emotions and when you add in a splash of sarcastic lazy genius who has similar thought processes but opposing personality traits... BAM insta-love. Note that I don't read any fics that pair Shikamaru with any other woman or Temari with another guy (by 'pair' I am implying 'love'. In my head, Shikamaru and Temari could never love another character more than each other)

MirXSan - OTP - I kind of see Sango as an alternate version of Temari (bad ass female character with some seriously dark family issues) and love the chemistry between her and Miroku.

KankuxTen - Pretty much summed up by the fic "Small Games" by Lady Calliope. Probably my favorite rendition of Kankuro's character

KankuxIno - I really love this pairing, primarily because I love both of their characters and I see them to represent similar roles on their teams (i.e. the intuitive loud mouth who has more heart than sense and is more than willing to ignore what others say when they feel that they are in the right).

KakaXHana - Not a lot of fics out there, but there is just something about the pairing that clicks for me

GenmaXShizune

KibaXKarui

KibaXIno

NejiXTen

Disagreeable Pairings: (Pairings that I don't read)

NejiXHina

KakaXSaku (Pre-Shinobi War)

ShikaxIno - As you can see above, I actually really love Ino's character... I just don't see her relationship with Shikamaru to be anything more than platonic (yeah, they care about each other, I just never saw a ShikaIno moment where I couldn't imagine the same thing happening with Chouji)

NOTE: These pairings only represent my personal preferences. I would never dissuade anyone from following or writing about these pairings if they so chose.

I'm in and out, but usually will respond to PM. Also, I've recently activated a similarly bare account in DA, under the name Sylversmyth

Current work:

Pulling the Strings (Feb 2013)

A piece based on Naruto, post Kakuzu/Hidan Arc, but prior to Invasion of Pain. A sinister presence that is linked to the Akatsuki begins to stir unrest in Suna. Shikamaru is chosen by both nations to lead a team to aid their allies. However, when their best plan involves sending a certain Sand kunoichi into the heart of the enemy ranks, will both shinobi be able to reconcile their feelings before it's too late? ShikaXTema, Spoilers

IT WILL BE LONG, but I hope that you all enjoy reading it as much as I'm enjoying writing it.

Update (19Nov2013): I'm rewriting portions of chapter 5 to improve the flow and add in some more introspection. It's been a bit of a chore, but the more I get done, the better I feel about it (I think that it improves the story a bit). When you balance that with the fact that my life has devolved to madness, well, things are getting delayed. A lot. The only positive side of this is that the changes to chapter 5 are making me more prepared for chapter 6. Yay? And just to think that there are still like 20 chapters to go...

The Prince (April 2013)

Compilation of ShikaTema one shots based on quotes from Niccolo Machiavelli. Will probably end up being more fluff than anything, but it helps me get rid of random ShikaTema scenes that don't completely fit in with the PTS plot line. (October 10- just posted chapter 3! Still mulling around on another idea, but it keeps going off on tangents. We'll see if I can get it to pan out).

*NEW* : To Protect and Serve

This one is VERY new (just got hit with the idea during a 6 hour drive). An AU fic featuring the Naruto characters as various law enforcement agents and the cases that pull them together. Kind of a crossover with Naruto, Law and Order, and the J.D. Robb books. ShikaTema centric.

Update (Nov2014)- I still love this idea, but I can't split my attention between Pulling the Strings As a result, this has essentially become a side project whenever I have time to write, but can't find the focus and inspiration that I need to work on PtS
