Author has written 10 stories for Sky High, Kingdom Hearts, .hack/SIGN, and Corpse Bride.

The part where I actually talk about writing...

Uh. I love writing. I like writing drama, tragedy, angst...I mean, I just love stories with horrifically sad endings. I can't deny it anymore; I like romance stories, too. A lot. And I like writing them...a lot. I like humor occasionally, but I don't enjoy writing it so much. Horror is also a favorite; limbs flying, blood spilling profusely...it's all good!


Now here's the random crap about myself that no one's really interested in...

Call me Paineful!

I'm an aspiring writer, like just about everyone else here. My favorite bands include Nightwish, Leaves' Eyes, Sirenia, Cradle of Filth, Lacuna Coil, and Within Temptation. I also listen to some weird stuff, like medieval music and Gregorian chant. And anything in Latin is a plus.

There's really nothing to say about me, so I'll just ramble.

My favorite foods include pizza, french fries, and broccoli. I'm a vegetarian, but I don't actually eat anything very healthy.

Outside of the occasional anime, I don't watch many television shows anymore, but favorite stories of mine include the Plautine comedies (I'm a sucker for anything Roman--and especially Classical History). Out of Plautus' works, my favorite is probably The Haunted House. I'm absolutely in love with the movie version of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. Other movies I like include Gladiator, Princess Mononoke, Battle Royale (seriously need to get the novel), Cradle of Fear, and a few Disney films such as Lilo and Stitch and Beauty and the Beast.

Commodus was so sexy in Gladiator. I just wish they had included something about how, historically, he's reputed to have changed Rome's name to Colonia Commodiana. The first time I ever heard that, I burst out laughing.

I have an ongoing obsession with Roman history, the Latin language, and Greek/Roman mythology. Mention Publius Clodius Pulcher or Cato the Younger and I am liable to love you forever and ever.

I'm also infatuated with Elizabeth Bathory. After learning as much as I could about the Blood Countess, someone suggested to me that I read the story Carmilla by J. Sheridan Le Fanu, and I ended up falling in love with that too.

Out of anime, my favorites are .hack//sign, .hack//liminality, Elfen Lied, Koi Kaze, Now & Then / Here & There, Narutaru, Yu Yu Hakusho, Berserk, Loveless, Haibane Renmei, and the incredibly short Angel Sanctuary (the anime's so small...I really have to get the manga). I'm trying to find something called Mermaid Melody because it looks adorable, but I don't intend to hold my breath. But normally, I like anything controversial, which explains why all my favorite anime are about topics generally considered "taboo."

Favorite video games of mine include Magna Carta: Crimson Stigmata, Xenosaga I (but not II), Silent Hill II, Kingdom Hearts I, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories (would you believe CoM was my favorite out of all the KH installments released?), .hack//infection - quarantine, .hack//GU, and Final Fantasy X. I despised Final Fantasy X-2, but found myself inexplicably drawn to the angsty/reclusive protagonist (or one of the protagonists, I should say), Paine--hence my pen name, Paineful.

Take care!


About stories I'm working on...

I wanna do a bunch of one-shots, since they seem to be the only thing I can focus on long enough to finish. I'm terrible. Right now, I'm focusing on Kingdom Hearts.

I have several pairings I like for Kingdom Hearts. Mainly, they are:

Xigbar/Demyx (OTP OTP OTP)
Saix/Demyx (Unconventional, but cute if you delve into it deep enough)
Axel/Roxas (Everyone loves this)
Xemnas/Saix (I'd start saying STP STP for Second True Pairing, but...that sounds so much like STD)
Marluxia/Aeris (Mm, crack)
Vexen/Larxene (Eccentric Scientist, meet Bitchy Neophyte)
Vexen/Marluxia (Winter vs. Spring? 8D)
Kairi/Namine (If you consider them two different souls born from one heart, it's cute)
Roxas/Kairi (Roxas pwns Sora)
Demyx/Namine (It's just too adorable...Demyx is all cheerful and Namine is all shy and sdjhfj)
Pence/Olette (They share a couch!)
Rai/Fuu (Never saw them as being related)
Xaldin/Anyone (The guy's so damn sexy)
Xaldin/Kairi (DAMN IT, Tai!)

I love anything with Vexen in it. He's my absolute favorite character in Kingdom Hearts. If you ask any of my friends, they'll be able to tell you that I claim--frequently--that Vexen is the REAL main character of Kingdom Hearts. Now, I know this makes no sense. I just have an obsession with the guy.

And then there are the .hack pairings. (This list spans over the entire .hack series, not just one installment.)

Tsukasa/Subaru (Most touching pairing ever)
Elk/Mia (How cute!)
Kite/Aura (The knight and his princess, maybe?)
Bear/BT (They should've hooked up...)
Haseo/Shino (I don't know; I just like it for some reason)
Kuhn/Pai (GU OTP)
Kuhn/Silabus (Has room to be quite sweet)
Enju/Silabus (IT'S NANASE!)
Tenrow/Yowkow (Go figure)
Yowkow/Natsume (Hot!)
Sakaki/Atoli (Except let's pretend he's not ten)

Okay, bye!
