Author has written 11 stories for Pokémon, Star Fox, Sly Cooper, Quantum Conundrum, Mario, Spyro the Dragon, Kingdom Hearts, and Legend of Zelda.
A list of pen/user names which I am often called:ah2190 (my original username, and one which I'm starting to grow out of - also the penname of my old account, which I've lost access to) auraRilou (Also known as Auro) (my Pesterchum pen name, and my Pokésona - also known as theriloushadowmastermun. The fact that Riolu is spelt as Rilou is a silly mistake on my behalf, which is due to that that that I sometimes mix up the letters of some words) auroVee (my other Pokésona, often known as the Twilit Eevee - because that is what he is... Or was.) Lativee (the 'evolved' form of auroVee, who is now part-Lati@s (or Latius as I like to call the bi-gendered Eon)) thelegendaryorretrio (my (old) main Tumblr RP pen name, and my main deviantArt username) TeamAuraStorm (my ex-PMDU Tumblr/deviantArt pen name, but I still use said team name myself)
Real name: (Not telling here if I can help it, but you can call me Auro)
Fandoms: Mainly Pokémon, although I have touched on the Kingdom Hearts, Sonic, Mario, Zelda, Ace Attorney, Star Fox, Sly Cooper, Naruto, Legend of Spyro, Mass Effect, Changed and Okami fandoms, among others. (I'm also have a weakness for another fandom, but the content of it is too rated-MA to be put here)
Likes: Improving my skills, playing games, role playing, reading (especially good fan fiction)
Dislikes: Deconstructive criticism, god-mod-like characters, coming last, Insta-Kill moves (unless used ONLY as a finisher, and not to end the fight quickly)

List of things which turn me away from certain fan fictions:
- Badly written summaries and/or stories. Seriously, if a summary or story is badly written, with loads of bad grammar, missing or abused punctation, really bad spelling which isn't intentional... it won't be worth my time.
- Authors who ask people to be nice because of it being their first fan fiction. I've just one thing to ask about this: Why should someone be confident in something that even the person who made it isn't fully supporting?
- Clear Mary/Marty Sue OCs who don't have a proper reason to be one. For this, I'll point out an exception: in Latias' Journey, there is this duo which are Mary/Marty Sues, although this is due to the female having an artefact which is corrupted with dark energy, which caused the duo to become what they are. And they are also proved not to be infallible, thanks to Ash thinking outside of the box during his (and their last) battle with them.
- Authors who don't care about the readers. I mean, seriously now, if you outright ignore or even go to great lengths to make sure that the readers don't get what they want, maybe you should reconsider posting your story online. The point of stories posted online are to entertain the reader, for Arceus' sake!
- Waaaaaaay too long action sequences. When I read, I do enjoy action sequences, but if they drag on and on and on, it gets boring. If a fight goes on for three or more consecutive chapters, without any downtime, climaxes or escalation, and/or the characters receive wounds which should had taken them out twice over, but they still keep going... Yeah, you got yourself a turn-off.
- Summaries that don't tell anything about the story or which goes 'Summary Inside!' If I see a summary which either doesn't explain the plot and/or says that the summary is inside... I'll be most likely 'Nope'ing outta there. Besides, a summary has to be a short paragraph which is intended to, for lack of a better word, sum up the plot and interest the reader. This kinda joins with the first point as well. Although I may have a look, you are less likely to get me to read your fic.
- Tagging a fanfiction as AU. The tag AU, or "alternate universe", is kinda pointless - because most fanfictions are indeed AUs.
- Awkward Dialogue. Two or more characters having a realistic sounding conversation is something that takes practice to get right. This means try. You've been interacting with people for your whole life; think about having a conversation with a friend and try to imitate the authenticity.
- [Insert Main Universe here: [Insert Real Title of Story here]. (Not as bad of a turn-off, but still important) From experience, I noticed that about half of Legend of Zelda fan fictions start with '(The) Legend of Zelda:' followed by the title of the story... which makes me wonder why they do this. It isn't part of the main series and putting the series' name in front of your title won't change that. It would be like putting "Pokémon:" in front of a story in the Pokémon section. However, there are exceptions which I prefer: for example, a Pokémon Mystery Dungeon fan fiction can have 'Pokémon Mystery Dungeon:' in front of the story title, seeing as Pokémon Mystery Dungeon is a side series, and a parody can also be done as well, like the Legend of Eevee and Bunch of Misfits series did.
- Review for Review offers. (Or anything along those lines) If a summary has something along the lines of, 'If you review this story, I'll review yours', that kinda turns me off. Besides, there is a thing about this which I don't like: you are not guaranteed a review of your story, and even if you do, you may have no say in which story/chapter they do the review for.
- Stories looking for beta readers from the summary. Seriously, it'll be better off if you asked people through PM yourself to beta read your story. Although you may not get lucky, it's better than nothing.
- Stories which end up being canned. While I can understand why some people would can a fiction after some time, it leaves things hanging, with no way to know truly what would had happened. Which is why I try not to can any of my stories if I can help it. This includes deleting the story... Like how one of the fics I used to read ended up. However, if you post what would had happened next - like in Face Every Shadow when it was canned - it at least gives us an idea of what would had happened next. Although if becoming too MA is the reason, that is understandable.
