Benibara Hirano, signing in:
Sorry for the long hiatus, but real life is pretty hectic at the moment, so updates will be few and far between. Being busy doesn't seem to stop all these story ideas from ramming into my brain, so I've got all these ideas and no time to write them. It sucks.
For those of you who don't know me, I'm primarily an OC writer. Read at your own risk.
Update: my new propic isn't mine, it's from zerochan, made by the fantabulous artist KANA. creds to her.
Also, I have a Tumblr where I'll be dumping some drabbles and throwing some ideas around. If you're interested, just go to benibarahirano.tumblr.com
Mosaic: a Harry Potter OC fic
Heidi Antoinette "Toni" Livington was run over by a bus. Naturally, she died. And was reborn into the Harry Potter world... as James Potter's younger sister. So now, as Carina "Rina" Potter, she's stuck: to save her brother and his wife, ruining Harry's destiny, or stand by and watch helplessly as her loved ones are murdered?
No one's ever said that life after death was easy.
The life and times of Carina Potter, James Potter's younger sister.
Soundtrack: (suggestions are welcome!)
Undone (by Far From Home)
Right Here (Ashes Remain)
CURRENTLY ON A HIATUS. MIGHT REWRITE AT A LATER DATE.
Where We End: a Naruto OC fic (Kakashi/OC)
I was not a killer. I was not a killer. I was not a killer.
The blood on my hands said otherwise.
Suddenly, a second life did not seem like the better choice.
Hitomi - no last name, thank you kindly - was a lot of things. Intelligent. Sarcastic. Arrogant. Jack-of-all-trades. Artist. Possibly psychotic. Possibly bipolar. Insecure. And most definitely, lost.
Somehow bullshitting through the Ninja Academy with flying colors and ending up on a mission with Hatake Kakashi does not, by all means, solve any matters. If anything, she wants to wring his neck and leave him to the crows. Unfortunately, Konoha frowns upon the mutilation of a teammate's body.
Sad thing is, Hatake probably could take her on with his eyes closed and win.
Soundtrack (again, suggestions welcome):
Hitomi's song: Roar (Katy Perry)
On the Off Chance: a Harry Potter OC fic (no pairings)
The thing is, Maureen is thirteen and thirty-five all at once.
On the off chance that she's not hallucinating, Maureen wants to know the how's and why's of what might be a devastating tragedy. And a Ravenclaw in pursuit of answers, as everyone knows, is a sight to behold.
aka an excuse to try and fumble out a story that acknowledges the complexity of peter pettigrew.
bare your fangs: an Akatsuki no Yona OC fic (Tae-woo/OC)
the people of the wind tribe are as free as the wind, living life at their own pace. but a light summer breeze can always turn into a raging tempest that destroys everything in its way. take care not to invite the storm, your highness. your survival cannot be guaranteed.
Son Jin-ah is no warrior. The Wind Tribe offers her more freedom than most women ever see in their lives, but there is a limit to these things and she is all too aware of this. She can't fight like Hak, can't confront the other Generals like Tae-woo or Grandfather, but she has her own ways to ensure the safety of her people.
There's a saying about poking a tiger in the eye: you don't.
Jin-ah may not be a warrior, but she's still willing to do whatever it takes to protect her family.
Future story ideas:
If At First You Don't Succeed: a Harry Potter OC fic (Charlie Weasley/OC)
... then burn all evidence that you tried.
Charlie Weasley worked with dragons in Romania. Unfortunately, that implies countless burns and scratches and maybe some life-threatening venom that had panicked the entire reserve for a moment. So it only makes sense that he be shipped off to the Medi-wing a lot. It makes even more sense that he'd be familiar with many of the mediwitches and wizards. Perhaps it could make sense that he'd fall in love with a mediwitch, too. Except he really should have thought more about this one.
The Weasley clan is uncertain as to whether they ought to be ecstatic that the supposedly asexual Charlie has found a love... or be concerned that the woman herself is a bit of a lunatic.
Molly Weasley couldn't care less. She wants grandchildren, and she wants them now.
Black Feathers: an Ouran High School Host Club fic (Ootori Kyoya/OC)
"So, Fujioka-san... what's up with the cross-dressing?"
Curiosity killed the cat, or so they say. Maybe she really should have kept her mouth shut. Or asked the cross-dressing Host in private, away from those ridiculous Hitachiin twins. But no. Of course life's a bitch like that.
Roped into aiding the Shadow King to ensure her silence, Miyazaki Hotaru wonders belatedly if trying to befriend Fujioka was a bad idea.
I Kid You Not: a Twilight fic (Edward Cullen/Bella Swan... not really)
"Cullen, like, you need an attitude makeover. No, don't growl at me! I swear I know this really awesome psychologist, he's really helpful... Cullen, you look constipated."
"I'm dangerous, Bella."
"And I'm an adrenaline addict. Wait, hang on, I am. Shit, okay, forget that ever happened."
"I'm a vampire, Bella."
"... Cullen, are you fucking sparkling?"
When she opened that door in the afterlife, the last thing Remy Hastings expected was to be born as Bella Swan, heroine of the Twilight series. And of course she knows the Cullens are vampires. But they don't have to know that... She decides to have some fun while she's at it. Screw original Bella, this shit's going down Remy style.
Fraxinella: a Naruto OC fic
"A woman's world is infinitely more complex and discreet than a man's. It is through the simplest of touches, a flick of the wrist, an unassuming flower, that women communicate; a kunoichi is no exception to this."
Fraxinella: Eurasian perennial herb with white flowers that emit flammable vapor in hot weather. (The floral language dictates that this plant means fire.)
Uzumaki Amaya knows with a stubborn certainty that she was never meant for the harsh, brutal world of Naruto. She knows with fierce clarity that she was never supposed to be born as one Uzumaki Kushina's only surviving family. Nor was she suited to be a kunoichi.
But apparently no one listens to her anymore, and thus our wallflower of a heroine's tale starts.
Lovesick Fools: a Romeo and Juliet fic (Romeo & Juliet, with a twist)
All Juliet knew was that this creep had the nerve to find out where she lived, ask for a kiss, and expect her to melt in his arms.
Yeah, well if he thought she was going to fall all over him like a lovesick fool, Montague had another thing coming.
What if Juliet wasn't as innocent, as naive almost, or as much of a sucker for romance as she was? What if she hated the thought of love? What if she hated men with all her being? How would the story turn out to be?
An epic tale with a feisty, sassy Juliet and a poor romantic Romeo who really should stop trying to serenade her at night.
White Roses: a Hetalia fic (England x OC)
He'd just turned to glare at France when a small body barreled into him. Startled, he glanced down -
- And drowned in the wide gray eyes he'd lost so long ago.
England loved a girl once, back when there were still lords and ladies and chivalry was yet a dying practice.
He just never thought he'd see her again in this time and age. Reincarnated.
Vainglorious: a Shingeki no Kyojin fic (OC, uncertain pairing)
She wanted to conquer the world, to fly free, and fell short.
She's an insolent, fiery little thing whose arrogance could fill oceans.
She's flying on glass wings.
Eyes Wide Open: a Harry Potter fic (Harry/OC)
To be a Malfoy, one must embrace heritage and tradition. To love Harry James Potter, one must toss all preconceptions aside and be swept along in the unknown.
Being Draco Malfoy's older sister (by seven minutes!) is trying. Being in love with Harry Potter is deadly.
Incandescence: an Ao no Exorcist fic (Shima Kinzou/OC)
The thing about fire was that it burned just as much as it saved.
The life of an exorcist: grim, dirty, yet oddly addicting.
Winter Cherries: a Harry Potter OC fic (Tom Riddle Jr./OC)
Winter cherries. There was an infinite number of plants that were pleasing to the eye and she just had to go and favor the one that defined his very nature.
The Dark Lord has a penchant for breaking everything he touched. She was never the exception.
Whirligig: a Harry Potter OC fic (Theodore Nott/OC)
"It is a rough road that leads to the heights of greatness." - Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Whoever said Hufflepuffs couldn't be great?
Oasis: a Naruto OC fic (no pairings yet)
In the midst of madness we found an oasis of peace.
The tale of Masago, the Yondaime Kazekage's sister and the Godaime's aunt... and the unlikely inheritor of the Magnet Release kekkei genkai.
Adamantine: a Natsume Yuujinchou OC fic (Matoba Seiji/OC)
adamantine - (adj.) utterly unyielding or firm in attitude or opinion; too hard to cut, break, or pierce; like a diamond in luster
Neither of them want to get married, much less to each other. Still, duty comes first... but no one ever said anything about passive aggressive attempts to sabotage an unwanted arranged marriage. Matoba Seiji, meet your match.
Year of the Snake: an InuYasha OC fic (no pairings in mind)
Kagome was torn between crying and barricading herself in her room for another ten years.
Either that, or brutally beat up whoever was in charge of the universe. That was a really tempting idea.
Kagome's pursuit of the shards and alternating between two vastly different time periods has left her grades in a frankly pathetic state. Her teacher decides to save the day and introduces her to Tobikomi Chie, college student genius and quite possibly the best teacher Kagome has ever known.
And then it turns out Chie-san is, in fact, a demon.
Kagome wants a refund for everything that has gone wrong in her life.
Cry Havoc: a Naruto OC fic (no pairings)
... and let slip the dogs of war.
Once a human, always a human... right? Funnily enough, no. Being able to speak and maintain rational thought does not necessarily mean you're human.
You could always be a ninja dog.
(A spin on the usual OC-reincarnation story.)
Sublimation: an Avatar: the Last Airbender OC fic
"In skating over thin ice our safety is in our speed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
The territory of the Northern Water Tribe is vast - but it's still too small for Yana. Hungering for the world, she sets out to explore the world. But first: to convince the Avatar to let her travel with his group.
The tale of Yana, second daughter of the Northern Water Tribe's chief, a girl as wild and stormy as the unbroken ocean waters.
Diplomatic Overtures: a Katekyo Hitman Reborn! OC fic (Hibari/OC)
She raised her hand. "Can I pretend I never saw any of this and go home? No? Okay then."
Shion wasn't really sure why no one else seemed to know about this mafia business. Tsuna and his friends weren't exactly keeping things quiet, were they?
Tides of the Mind: a Kuroko no Basket OC fic
"Happiness is not a matter of events; it depends on the tides of the mind" - Alice Meynell
Riko has found someone who can stand her cooking. The team is flabbergasted. The general consensus: this phenomenon must be investigated.
Introducing Ueno Tomomi, normal in every sense of the word save for the fact that she has congenital ageusia: the inability to taste anything.
A Rather Questionable Windfall: a Twilight OC fic (Demetri/OC)
A gifted vampire has evaded the Volturi for centuries. Aro is determined to get his hands on this treasure. Demetri is particularly invested.
Cecily Lovell drifted in a current invisible to all but her. Unable to stay in one place, she leaves her sisters and brother and lives as a nomad, traveling the world and coming across a wide assortment of people (and vampires). One fateful encounter with the Volturi has them hell-bent on recruiting her, and Demetri is especially keen on keeping her. Why? Cecily happens to be his mate. (At least, he's pretty damn sure of it. She's not so certain, nor eager.)
Coloring Outside the Lines: a Harry Potter OC fic
She was aghast. No telephones? No television? Only a limited amount of sports and recreational activities? No pens?!
This whole wizarding business seemed a bit lacking.
Julia Young may be new to magic, but that doesn't mean she has to abandon all ties to the Muggle world.
Valiant: a Harry Potter OC fic
Everyone averts their eyes as the little boy screams and the Carrows laugh.
Fear lodges my breath in my throat and all I want to do is to walk away, but...
I'm not a Gryffindor, but I am human enough to do something about this.
Because the war wasn't just about Harry, not really.
Things We Lost in the Fire: a KHR OC fic
"I don't think I heard you right the first time. Repeat that?"
"I'm going to marry Vongola Decimo and you're going to help me."
It's too much to ask for, she supposes, wishing to lead a relatively peaceful life in the mafia.
But for God's sake, why did her boss have to fall in love with Vongola Decimo, of all people?
[Title: a KnB OC fic
"You look like my dog," she blurts, and immediately feels mortified.
No one ever said socialization was her strongest point.
Moonlight Sonata: a KHR OC fic
Yue likes to think that her mother named her after the moon for a reason.
In defiance of her absent father's sun flames, perhaps.
Reborn may be her biological sire, but he has a long way to go before she'll refer to him as 'father.'
Pop Goes the Weasel: a Harry Potter OC fic
Lorrie lowers her gaze to her hands, pale and drenched in blood.
"I never," she murmurs, "want to want to see another unattached limb ever again."
Lorraine "Lorrie" Weasley may be Ginny's twin, but that doesn't make her any less of her own person.
As the Eagle Soars: a Harry Potter OC fic
It was only because of Remus Lupin's soft spot for underdogs that Sirius and James accepted Peter Pettigrew into their midst.
Ian Fletcher inadvertently throws that plan out the window and finds himself swept along for the ride--because Merlin only knows no day is without excitement when with the Marauders.
Burn the Witch: a Harry Potter OC fic
She's like a bolt of precious silk draped gently over a basket of writhing adders and scorpions.
Ansa Catchweed is not a nice person.
Once More, with Feeling: a Harry Potter OC fic [James Potter II/OC]
Minerva has a moment of disconnect as she hears James Potter wheedle, "C'mon, Thorne."
For a moment, it sounded oddly like the familiar baritone of another man by the same name, only that voice calls, "Alright, Evans?"
History has a tendency to repeat itself. Harry watches in fascination as a romance not unlike his parents' unfolds before his eyes.
[Title: a Soul Eater OC fic
Hero will forever remember the day Malika Butler walked up to him with a promise in her eyes and said, "Let's partner up, shall we?"
He will forever remember the day she tilted up his chin and told him, "You are not useless. You are not a failure."
Malike will forever remember the day Hero looked into her eyes and saw something worth staying for.
Hero is a loser. Malika has a thing for challenges.
Happy Accidents: a KnB OC fic [Kasamatsu Yukio/OC]
"What have I done that's so terrible you can't even look at me?!"
Kasamatsu's inability to talk to women has, once again, come around to bite him in the ass. He hates it when Moriyama and Kise are right.
The Exponent of Breath: a KnB OC fic [Miyaji Kiyoshi/OC]
Miyaji may have his idols, but in the end his romance is closer to home. And a lot more realistic.
In which Miyaji Kiyoshi realizes he's in love with his childhood best friend and doesn't remember when or how that happened. It's not the most pleasant realization.
[title: a Harry Potter OC fic
"It's not as though there's no magic in our world, Tuney," said Iris, head held high and eyes blazing--the picture of defiance. "We'll just go on and make magic for ourselves."
In which there are not two, but three Evans sisters, yet Lily remains the only witch in the family.
She's Beauty, She's Grace: a Harry Potter OC fic [Albus Potter/OC]
"Albus," says Lily, smiling brightly. "This is my new friend, Grace Park. Grace, this is my older brother, Albus Potter."
Grace offers a polite smile, eyes straying to the mayhem his cousins are causing somewhere behind him. A mischievous spark enters her eyes and Albus thinks, oh no. Not my little sister's friend.
Albus is his father's son.
Empyrean Heights: a Harry Potter OC fic
Emmeline Vance spread her tattered wings and reached for the sky.
In which a woman dies too young in one world and is born into another as Emmeline Vance.
