(Previous account Shadow Of Grace)

Hallo everybody! I've decided to forego the fairly simple list-like profile on my previous account, and instead adopt more of an explain-about-me-without-an-adgenda sort of thing.

I'm not really comfortable posting my real name online for a number of reasons, but I seem to have aquired 'Grace' as a penname and stuck with it. Actually, I like it quite a bit more than my given name anyway, so I'm rather pleased with this particular turn of events. As for things like age and location - which a surprising number of people seem to put on their profiles - I'm not particularly old nor am I particularly young. I live in the United States, but I was born in Canada (eh). Writing has been a hobby of mine since I was a child, and thankfully it's quality has improved somewhat over the years. I love anime in general, but Naruto is my favorite by far. The characters, plot - as drawn out as it is - and animation of it all has continued to surprise and delight me since I stumbled across it while surfing channels several years ago. I haven't been writing fanfictions for as long as I'd like, but I do enjoy reading the work of other authors as well as adding what small contributions I can to my favorite fandoms. Crack pairings tend to be my favorites, and I definetly have a thing for villains.

As for my writing itself, I prefer to do fics for my - underappriciated - OTPs, but I am fond of throwing an OC or two into the mix. My plots are never particularly well-thought-out, but I do make sure that I know the general direction that everything is going in before I post anything; the only exception being Impulse (the irony is purely accidental, I assure you). At some point in the distant future I hope to get a full list of my assorted fandoms, OTPs, an opinions on characters put up on here, but that's a lot of work and I'm rather lazy - as my darling Beta can attest.

PhantomPrussia is the Beta for all of my work, and despite her snarkyness she's quite good at fixing the numerous flaws in my writing. Though her profile would be a better place to find detals, she plans on re-writing several of her older fanfics, and I would encourage everyone to take a peek once she posts the new versions. Also, she is determined that all Betas are painfully underappriciated, and threatens to go on strike rather often if 'my' reviewers don't give her hugs and cookies . . . and they say writers are fickle. . .

The Second Rapture by Supernatural Pie Theif reviews
"Love isn't patient or kind, or any of that bullshit. It's . . . It's bent and twisted and blackened. Love hurts and it bleeds and it screams. Love burns and it consumes and it ruins. Love . . . Love is the worst sort of agony that you never want to end." [Destiel, AU]

The Peculiar Tale of Panda-Man and the Vanishing Cupcakes reviews
"And where, pray tell, did those three dozen cupcakes get to, Panda-san?" "I haven't the slightest idea what you're talking about." ". . . There's still a smudge of icing on your chin, Panda-san." LXOC. T for language, crude humor, and truffles. Rating may go up.

Of Red Ribbons And Dango reviews
It was an accident, really. Two separate paths colliding where they shouldn't have crossed, tangling the strings of fate and altering the course of history. It never should have happened, yet it did. Promises were made, hearts were broken. . . and it all started with a red ribbon and a plate of dango. ItaSaku with hints of SasuSaku.

Chocolate reviews
"Life is like chocolate. Too dark and it becomes bitter enough to hurt your mouth, too light and it becomes too sweet to eat." "I thought you hated chocolate?" "I do." OCX?, NO Shizaya. T for violence, language, and turtles.

She, Sakura Haruno, was practically straddling Sasuke-kun's older brother, an S-class missing nin. . . and she thought he was hot. ItaSaku, oneshot but may be continued. Rating subject to change.
