Author has written 8 stories for Sailor Moon, and Legend of Zelda.
A little bit about me, ja? Of course, I'm an anime fan, with a very diverse interest across many fandoms. I'm also a music lover, with an interest in music that's even more diverse than my anime interests. I'm also an amateur trance/techno DJ, a certified car enthusiast, an aviation enthusiast, a computer nerd, and a gamer. Kind of a jack of all trades, ja? Though, I wouldn't say I'm a master of none :D
I actually began writing fanfiction back in early 2000, and have been posting them here since 2004. I have returned in late-2008 after a 3 year hiatus and am slowly re-releasing my older works, albeit revised, to both my website and here at Fanfiction.net. I like to write longer stories, with very few of my works coming out to less than 10,000 words. And I can very easily write over 2000 words in one night, even after a day at work. I view my writing of fanfiction as practice toward a much larger original fiction project that I intend to have published.
My completed works and revisions in progress consist mostly of Sailor Moon fanfiction, but I've also expanded my writing into other fandoms we well, including Legend of Zelda. I'm very much sticking to the anime and video game fandoms when it comes to fanfiction. In addition to revising my older works, I also have 5 or 6 fanfic ideas I'm playing around with, 4 stories I'm not going to continue or release until I release the right revised works, and 1 story currently in progress.
As for how I write, I mainly do my writing on computer, whether it's my desktop when I'm home or my netbook when I'm not home or want to write away from home. However, I sometimes do it with pencil and paper and then transfer it to my computer. It's a great method as you write your draft on paper, and then revise and edit it as you transfer it to a computer to post here on ff.net. But lately I've found difficulty getting back into that method as I have far fewer places where I can sit and write with pen and paper than I did when I started, so I end up using either of my computers.
In addition to writing, I also like to give out detailed reviews of some of the fanfics I read. I don't just give the ever-so-common one-sentence-reviews and other short and sweet reviews that praise or flame the author's hard work. My reviews point out what was great about a fanfic, what was bad about it, and what can use improvement. I give ratings on 5 categories: Idea, Style, Characters, Emotion, and Overall. And I give them on a 0-5 scale,with 0 being a really poorly-done category/fanfic, 3 being relatively average, and 5 being something of legendary proportions. Most stories I've read end up being rated a 2 in most categories, so anything above that is pretty good. I'm tough, but I'm fair. Do note, however, that my reviews are merely my educated opinions, and are meant to be taken as constructive criticism. (Note: I have not reviewed since 2011, but I might again once life finally stabilizes)
So enjoy my stories, and leave reviews of your own :)
Rekindling Their Bonds Update 10/18/15:
This is my first update in over 2 years. I would like to thank all my readers for their support during this long hiatus. I would also like to provide at least a bit of an explanation as to why I have not come back to this fanfic in so long.
Flat out, life happened. For the last 3 1/2 years, I've had so much on my real world plate. I started by working on university applications, looking to start school again. With it having been so long since I graduated high school, I couldn't get into a big university, so I was ready to settle into going to a community college for the first couple years. Well, family issues came up (big ones), and I ended up having to move... twice. Then last spring, I had to get another family member away from an emotionally abusive husband, which meant I had to sell my unfinished project car that I was working on, get a regular working car (it'll take me cross-country, no problem), and move yet again. I am still helping take care of that family member to this day. On top of that, I went through a few job changes early on with each move, and just in the last 3 months had to change job yet again after a good stable 2 years with my previous job to help better support myself and said family member. With so much stuff going on in life, working some not-so-good jobs (even the one I'm at now), and dealing with both family issues and my own issues, I haven't had any creative juices flowing for a few years now. Every time I tried to get back to this fanfic, I just couldn't do it.
Does this mean Rekindling Their Bonds is dead? No. I owe it to my readers, Legend of Zelda fans, Link/Saria shipping fans, and most of all myself to finish the story. Life is still a rollercoaster for me right now, and I've had to look for other releases besides reading, writing, and gaming, but I do have the desire and some motivation to return to Rekindling Their Bonds. Also, I have creative juices and brainstorming flowing in my head again, so that's giving me hope... a lot of it. With that said, onto the project. I am still about 3/4 finished with Chapter 20. So I will have to reread at least the last 7 chapters to get myself back into the story.
It is also possible I may revise Chapters 1 and 2 before finishing Chapter 20 rather than after. Revisions will include: 1) adding a few references, giving a minor character or two some much needed background that they should've gotten in those chapters since they had gotten it in future chapters. 2) adding a scene or two, one of them that a few readers have said that I woefully missed. They were originally left out to keep the chapter from being too long, but after seeing how long this story has become, I might as well redo Chapter 1 with that woefully missed scene or two :)
I apologize for the length of time between updates, and I thank everyone who has kept in touch with me, read my stories, left comments, and asked about my fanfic. It was your private messages that helped me make attempts to get back into writing every time :)
