So, wow, I haven't changed my profile since I made it when I was thirteen! Very cringe. Oops. I finally have the time (and the patience) to go through and clean this up a little, mostly just by deleting a lot of the random or unnecessary stuff.
Updating schedules and story information are/is at the very bottom- enjoy!
Here's a little bit about me. (Questions compiled by friends)
How old are you?
I'm currently seventeen.
What's your gender?
What do you do?
Well, I'm still in school, dual-enrolled in college. I'm aiming to major in Creative Journalism and do a minor in Philosophy.
What's your favorite color?
Green, though I am partial to purple!
What's your favorite food?
Tie between ramen yakisoba, and salmon.
Currently either Up in Our Bedroom After the War by Stars or Wolf in Sheep's Clothing by Set it Off.
Do you have any pets?
Yep! Right now I have a long haired doxie and a baby turtle.
Two, and BOTH of them are boys- I'm a middle child.
If your house was on fire and you only have time to grab one thing, what would it be?
I flip back and forth between two houses, so f I was at one, I would grab my childhood stuffed bear, and at the other, my waterproof bag of writing journals.
If you had to be trapped in a game based off of the world (not the plot) of one book/show/movie and you got to choose, which would you pick?
So basically, which fictional world do I want to live in without necessarily a high chance of death? Probably SAO (does that count?) or Harry Potter.
Where do you see yourself in ten years?
I want to, at that point, hopefully either be traveling or working as an author and a developmental editor for other authors! I kind of also want to live near a cemetery and also be a foster parent.
What's your best/favorite genre to write?
Ooh. I kind of just write whatever comes to mind and feels right! But from feedback and general personal satisfaction, I can say that my best works are probably the really sad, heart wrenching ones, so probably tragedy or hurt/comfort.
What kind of books do you like to read?
Action/adventure or adventure/romance, and I will never turn away from supernatural, magical or mythical plots, although I'll really read anything from horror to fluff.
Who is your favorite author?
See, having a favorite author would imply I had a favorite book, so this could be a problem. Some of my favorites are Maggie Steifvater, JK Rowling and Rick Riordan.
What is your favorite book or book series?
Ugh, again? Probably Harry Potter or Percy Jackson, but I also LOVED the Divergent series!
What's your favorite under-appreciated novel?
The song of an innocent bystander. I've never met another person who's read it, but it's amazing!
What is your favorite story on fanfiction?
Definite tie between the Stygian Trilogy by Slide or the SecretKeeper stories by to-love-is-to-lie. Vastly different but I suggest you read both! The Stygian Trilogy is a second-gen Harry Potter trilogy recently turned saga, and it goes super in depth into the world of magic and it's finite details, and also, the relationships and emotions between people under pressures and against each other. SecretKeeper is a journal-style Naruto modern-world fanfiction, based around an Original Character, and although at first the grammar might throw you off, keep going! It's hilariously funny and engaging, but it also touches on very grave and serious subjects. You'll laugh all the time and cry when you least expect it.
Who is your favorite character that you've created?
I know I keep saying tie, but I can't commit! I love my two most popular OCs, Mai and Fumiko, equally and for different reasons (like my CHILDREN.) I love writing Mai, because she has an interesting, damaged kind of point of view that tends to be very deep and very harsh and her calculating mind sometimes throws me off. Fumiko is the exact opposite, for the most part a happy, cheerful person who sees the best in every one and every thing, and it's refreshing to not always have drama in a pov, even though she goes through tribulations of her own.
What inspired you to create your TOF series?
A very, very strange dream born of too much Naruto and gangster!au fanfictions! Something about having clans/gangs in a swamp and Fumiko was Sasuke's younger (seven year old) sister and she saved Gaara from drowning in the swamp and it was all just a mess
But aside from the character inspiration, the actual ideas for the story came from trying to find a decent GaaraxOC character that wasn't overdramatic and annoying. I decided to write my own.
What elements do you try to tie into your stories?
A lot of things. I try to be as real as possible, which is part of the reason all of my characters are so different. I try to make every relationship, be it romantic, one-sided, platonic, hateful or otherwise, different- more perfect, more broken, average, falling apart, drifting away. Each character feels differently about things they like and hate, and they all respond differently and sometimes unexpectedly to situations. And I try to catch the real aspects of hard emotion, and the cruelty the real world often shows. But I also put in the good things, as well, and try not to overdo anything. The point of it is normality- however good or bad or dramatic or not that is, it's real.
What is the biggest decision you've had to make for a story?
Every time I've ever killed a character (Eishi why.) But really, there were a lot. Fumiko being made Gaara's age and available for a relationship was one, deciding to portray their father as I did was another. Probably the one that hurts me the most was making Mai sterile, a kind of ironic, unnecessary pain that I won't reverse- and, honestly, putting Mai in as a character in the first place!
How similar are you to your characters?
Not very, actually. I've had readers tell me they picture me as Fumiko, but aside from having brown hair (a different shade!) we look nothing alike, and we don't really act alike either. I'm quieter than most of my characters, and although I like to say that "Fumiko is an example of what people should be, and Mai is an example of what happens instead" a lot of my philosophies on life goes into both of them. But otherwise, no. None of the characters really share any of my skills or general interests.
Your characters seem to be widely skilled, with a variety of different abilities, strengths and weaknesses. Are they based off of real life people or yourself?
It's been noticed that Mai is a lot like my girlfriend, but I didn't do it on purpose, I swear! (Anyway, they're different in the fundamentals. Lily has less chakra and less PTSD and slightly more creative swears) But no, generally I have no idea about what they do, and I have to do a lot of research going in to develop those skills for them so that readers who have those skills can relate. And when it comes to their personalities, well, I follow a few guidelines of development, but everything else that happens kind of depends on them.
What is your writing process like?
Depends. I always carry around a minimum of about four journals that I write in constantly, and sometimes I put quick ideas and lines in my phone Notes. I'll organize my ideas into waterfall charts if I take the time to think it out, and it's not just a to-the-wind oneshot.
On a good day with no responsibilities or distractions, I'll wake up early, sit on the couch surrounded by papers, plans, and research as well as food, and stay there until I'm tired (generally, picture 7 am-3 am with only a few bathroom breaks.) Then wake up the next day and do the same thing.
Normally, though, I write when I can or when I have a flash of inspiration, and I can write for hours straight. I try not to write in too many chunks and do whole scenes at one time so as to not break it up and lose my flow. As for editing, I generally read everything over once to make sure the grammar's right and I haven't gone off on tangents, then post it, and read it again the next day with fresher eyes and fix whatever needs to be fixed.
All of my friends are sounding boards.
Do you try to be more original or cater to your audience?
I try to be original. I take what the audience tends to like and react to into consideration, of course, but generally I do what I always planned to do, and have my character react how they always would. I've tried writing based solely on what the audience wanted before, and it's neither enjoyable, nor, frankly, any good.
What other authors are you friends with, and how do they help you become a better writer?
At one point I was very good friends with gaarathefifthkazekage, and she gave me ideas for several of the most staple features of my stories (including love you/you too, and Fumiko's kids at all.) My girlfriend writes as well and is very good at worldbuilding with me, so she's inspired and helped explain so many facets of my stories, and one of my best friends (although she knows nothing about the Naruto world that I didn't explain to her) helped a lot just by bouncing back and forth and listening to and tweaking my ideas for character development. Having other people help you is the best way to improve and expand your writing styles and ideas.
Do you want each book to stand on it's own, or are you trying to build a body of work with connections between each book?
Each book stands on it's own, more or less, although some references and flashbacks made would be better explained by reading the previous, as well as the development of the characters. I do, however, put in throwbacks and references, and some of my most important scenes in later books are kind of like inside jokes (except not jokes) that only veteran readers will understand properly.
If you could tell your younger writer self anything, what would it be?
Don't worry so much what other people want from you and your story, and write what you want. Settle down; it doesn't have to be groundbreaking or dramatic- it just has to be real.
As a writer, what would you choose for your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?
Either a jellyfish or a capybara, probably.
What kind of research do you do before writing, and how long does it take you?
Oh, God, it takes me hours or days sometimes to get to the point of actually writing. I have a character who's a medic- guess who has no idea about first aid or intensive care and surgery practices? (I've seen more than enough bing images of surgery for one lifetime.) I have a character who's a fighter in several styles- guess who has no idea anything about fighting, places to hit, or the reactions of being hit or broken in some ways? I have characters who suffer from PTSD, characters that deal in poison, characters who are artists with distinctive styles. I have to research everything! (This doesn't even include having to know about the world my characters live in extensively and having to fill in plotholes!)
At any given time writing I have about ten tabs open on my computer for references, and I'll constantly text friends or ask people who have those skill sets or something close to it how things worked or if it sounds right.
What's the most difficult thing about writing characters from the opposite sex?
Actually, I don't get the hype there. It's never been particularly hard for me to write from a guy's perspective- the genders aren't all that different! I find it harder to draw guys than write them.
How do you choose your characters' names?
To be completely honest, I started out by clicking away at random name generators until I saw one I liked, completely disregarding their meanings! I made it work eventually, but I still wish I'd had the sense to do what I do now, which is research lists of names and their meanings to find one I both like for the character and that has a somewhat relevant meaning (even if it's relevance is that it means the opposite of the character!)
What was your hardest scene to write?
One of my most recent chapters throws my character Mai headfirst into a mix of a PTSD-enhanced mental and emotional breakdown and shutdown, and a sudden, unexpected romance! It's really messy and Mai isn't ever as hopeless or degenerate or quiet as she is in that moment, not to mention I've never written her dealing with romance before!
I like how it turned out, but it kinda sucked and was very uncomfortable to write.
Do you have any misunderstood characters, or characters that you believe the audience hasn't fully appreciated or taken the time to decode?
Yes! I have two, probably the most hated and confusion-inducing characters I've ever written. Fukuda, Fumiko's semi-abusive (both physically and mentally) father, and Yoshiki- her former best friend that kind of degenerated into a jealous, passive-aggressive antagonist.
All of my readers hate them. I mean, like, hate hate. And the thing is- they're meant to hate them, but that's not all they're meant to do. People, just like characters, aren't inherently good or bad- no matter how bad the things are that they do. They're just people- and they probably have good traits, too.
And that's the case with these two characters. Yoshiki is Fumiko's former best friend who, at some point after she became friends with Gaara (whom he already hated and was afraid of) developed a crush on her, and found it infuriating when she didn't reciprocate (or even notice) and continue to "not take his [also semi-abusive, but only emotionally] advice". So he becomes mean and angry and petty. The thing is, he's not a bad guy, not by a long shot- he's just a bad mix of a naturally jealous person and a coward. Yoshiki, in places the audience haven't yet seen, is an animal-loving child at heart trying to play soldier and become the strongest ever, you know? "Become the best, get the girl, everything goes your way". And he's a know it all- and that's it!
In Fukuda's case, yeah, I admit- I created him to be an antagonist. But there's more to him then antagonism, which I've tried to hint at before. Fukuda is also a naturally jealous person and, surprise, is also a bit of a coward. He's a bit possessive and strict and bossy, but some parents are- and then someone comes along and pulls his girls away before he's ready, and he doesn't take it well. He has an unhealthy notion that they are his- his daughters and his kids and his responsibility, and they should follow his every wish, because he's their father.
Fukuda just wants his girls to love him most, but he goes about it horribly, pushing them away. Growing up, he was a shy nerd who liked numbers and overthought things way too much, and he just kind of let those teenage thoughts from bullying and misfortune fester for his entire life, and he just got, you know, a little bitter. But he isn't evil.
(Sorry I ranted I'm just really glad someone asked that question.)
What was an early experience where you learned that words had power?
The first time a poem every made me cry (Love that Dog) and every time after that when a reader angrily messaged me saying I'd made them cry/scream/giggle manically too early in the morning so they woke up parents/siblings/pets.
When did you decide to become an author?
See above. I never considered writing before then, though I'd been an avid reader, and once that hit I started writing poetry. Fastforward a year and I discovered fanfiction- and my desire to write it. After that, as a professional thing, it was kind of gradual. There was no "i want to be a writer when I grow up!" moment. It just always was.
Any advice for new authors?
Never delete! At least not right away. So many new authors get embarrassed or nervous about their new works, to the point where they delete them forever and disappear from the internet! No! Even I didn't delete, no matter how crap they were. Because you can only improve, especially in a developing series, and haters aside there will always be people who find your work interesting or who would be willing to help you!
Just keep trucking, and one day you'll find yourself with a distinctive, ever changing style, a lot of work and confidence under your belt, and too many words to count!
Also, let the emotions come. Research them to get them right, but if the mood starts to change while you're writing, don't try to force it to do what you want. Change your plans. Let your characters live their lives, because they aren't you.

The one thing you never say to a fangirl: "You know he's not real, right?"
Here's a question. if English people think in English, and Japanese people think in Japanese, how do babies, who haven't yet learned a language, think?
I am that girl, the one who likes books more than boys. The one who pretends not to be sad, just to make others happy. The one who always wonders what she did wrong. The one who writes to escape. The one who just wants to help. The one that really wants to make a difference. The one that sticks to her values. The one that refuses to believe that this is it. The one that will do anything to make a better tomorrow.
I am the girl...that doesn't go to school dances, or games, and when I do go, I sit in a corner and read a book. I am the girl that people look through when I say something. I am the girl that spends most of her free time reading, writing, or doing other activities that most teenagers wouldn't call normal. I am the girl that people call weird, and a freak either behind my back or to my face. I am the girl that doesn't spend all her time on Facebook, or talking to a girlfriend on a cellphone or regular phone. I am the girl that has stopped to smell the flowers and jump and splash in the rain.
But I am also the girl who knows and is proud to be who she is, doesn't care if people call her weird (it's a compliment), who loves reading and writing and doing the things that no one seems to have the time to do any more, who loves and is obsessed with nerdy things that only she would like, who can express herself better with writing than talking, and knows the importance of the little things in life that most overlook! Copy and paste if you can relate!

I understand that Scissors can beat Paper, and I get how Rock can beat Scissors, but there's no way Paper can beat Rock. Is Paper supposed to magically wrap around Rock leaving it immobile? If so, why can't paper do this to scissors? Screw scissors, why can't paper do this to people? Why aren't sheets of college ruled notebook paper constantly suffocating students as they attempt to take notes in class? I'll tell you why, because paper can't beat anybody, a rock would tear that crap up in two seconds. When I play Rock, Paper, Scissors, I always choose rock. Then when somebody claims to have beaten me with their paper I can punch them in the face with my ready made fist and say, oh, I'm sorry, I thought paper would protect you, to!

The Situation in Hell
The following is supposedly an actual question given on a University of Washington chemistry mid-term. The answer by one student was so "profound" that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well.
Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?
Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law (gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some variant.
One student, however, wrote the following:
First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at which they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving.
As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different Religions that exist in the world today. Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell.
With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially. Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added.
This gives two possibilities:
1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose.
2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.
So which is it?
If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman year that, "it will be a cold day in Hell before I go out with you", and take into account the fact that I went out with her last night, then number 2 must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and has already frozen over.
The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over, it follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore, extinct . . . leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the existence of a divine being which explains why, last night, Teresa kept shouting "Oh my God."
THIS STUDENT RECEIVED THE ONLY "A."
I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian. I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman. I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights. We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time. I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room. I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me. I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again. I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear. We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men. I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me. I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman. I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman. I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male. I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men. I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that. I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual. I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I did not have to always deal with society hating me. I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind. I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love. I am the person who is afraid of telling his loving Christian parents he loves another male.

Hey guys! A lot of people are wondering what's going on, as I went from posting once or twice a week to posting once every month or two. Don't worry! My TOF saga HAS NOT been abandoned, nor is it even on Haitus!
Along with personal family issues and a truckload of schoolwork and stress, I've hit a bit of a writer's block, so it takes me a bit longer to write now than it used to. At the moment, though, I seem to have hit another flow!
But good news! I HAVE found my writing journal AND TAKEN PICTURES OF THE PAGES THIS TIME! :D
I'll update again MONDAY, and may have the next chapter after that by thursday or friday, and hopefully from there I can get back onto a somewhat-steady weekly or every-other-week schedule again.
Mai and Fumiko both have their own wiki pages, so make sure to check those out! Some of the information there is trivia and is never mentioned in the series. (Also, I would love some help in keeping those updated.) [PS, the links are wonky so just search their names into the naruto oc wiki]
You can check out my Deviantart here, where I have posted several reference sheets and drawings of all the characters!
My twitter is @PikaPixie1 , so tweet at me or follow me there for update and story information!
If you want to contact me for any reason (even if it's just to talk) feel free to PM me!
