Author has written 21 stories for ElfQuest, Outlaw Star, Rurouni Kenshin, Final Fantasy I-VI, Final Fantasy X, Inuyasha, Angel, Battle Royale, Harry Potter, and Dragon Ball Z.
10/02/12 UPDATE: If you haven't noticed, I've been absent for over a year. I started grad school (and got engaged) and that has kind of sucked up a lot of my time. I am hoping to get back to writing "Inevitability" and "For the Love of a King" since I have new chapters already started and know where both stories are heading. Thank you to those reviewers who have encouraged me to get back into writing my stories.
My fanfiction style is one of two things 1) Canon characters in a canon setting (hopefully) or 2) New characters added into an alternate universe of the fanfic. (Many are this way, but they are old, and I will try to write fewer of them.) I don't mind criticism, as I am an aspiring author (Same name on fictionpress, please check me out if you want). So, anyway, here is the list of me:
Status: Very busy college student.
Favorite Animes: Anything I have done a fanfic about, plus: Hayao Miyazaki's films (particularly Princess Mononoke), Cowboy Bebop, Speed Grapher (totally awesome, please check it out), and lots of others.
Currently Watching: Warehouse 13 (evil mid-season finale is evil), How I Met Your Mother, Castle, The Big Bang Theory, Face-Off, New Girl, Project Runway, and occasionally South Park. I recently finished watching Baccano! and I highly recommend it.
Favorite Books: Anything by Anne Bishop, Jane Austen, William C. Dietz, Mary Balogh, and anyone who can write an awesome regency romance novel.
Favorite Shows: Anything Joss Whedon touches, Gilmore Girls, House, Bones, Project Runway, Stargate (all three), Farscape, and Lexx.
Fanfiction Likes: I do enjoy canonical fanfiction, such as sequels or what may have happened when the series did not specify. I am a big fan of canon pairings. Though there are certainly other possible matches in many of the animes I watch, I still tend to gravitate towards the regular pairings, even in AU fanfiction. Characters must be in character unless there is a specific reason why they are acting out of character.
Fanfiction Dislikes: Out of Character behavior from any canon character unless a reason is given (insane, loopy, etc). I don't necessarily hate non-canon pairings, but I rarely read them. Some exceptions are when neither character had a pairing in the canon, and their relationship happens later. I also hate poor grammar. Unless you are not a native English speaker, your grammar should at least be decent enough to catch spelling errors.
*NEW* Dragonball Z Fanfiction Dislikes: So, after reading bits and pieces of several DBZ fanfics, I have come up with my list of dislikes for this particular genre:
--The whole "biting-to-mate" thing has always bothered me, and I usually get turned off pretty quick when I see this one. Though, that tends to happen late in a fic and I'm stuck reading it because everything else is good and I want to finish the story.
--Vegeta (or anyone else for that matter) having a tail after the Saiyan Saga. It got cut off. It's gone. Deal with it.
--Inserting Japanese terms or the original Japanese names. (Bra is an exception, since the dub changed it for obvious reasons.) I don't mind if authors write from the subs, but I was raised on the Funimation dub. Japanese terms, like -san or baka tend to bother me, since there seems to be no reason for them. It might have been a Japanese show, but writing in English means most readers will have watched the English version of the show...and they don't use Japanese in the English dub.
--Vegeta being in love with Bulma during the "Three Years" stories. Sometimes this can be pulled off okay, but anyone who has watched the show knows that if Vegeta was in love with Bulma during the Android Saga, he's not that in love with her. (I do, however, believe the "Seven Years" changes that.)
--Bulma/Chi-Chi/Videl, etc being changed into a Saiyan. Unless you're writing some funny AU, this is just annoying. However, one of my favorite stories has Videl as a half-Saiyan, so this is not a golden standard. But you better write it well, or else.
I absolutely love DBZ, and I am a big advocate for canon-pairings. So, these rules are just my personal reading and writing guidelines. Many people love things I have listed, and this does not mean the authors who use these devices cannot write. If you are a fan of the above, you will not see it in my writing. If you want me to read your story and it contains one or more of these elements, I will read the first chapter and probably nothing more. But I will be nice.
Other Semi-Pertinent Data:
I am a pretty nice reviewer, so feel free to recommend stories for me to read. I will leave constructive criticism if need be. I currently cannot beta read, since college sucks alot of free time from me.
Just as a note, much of the fanfiction I have written was written several years ago, and contains typical fangirl errors that I hope to never repeat. Anything that predates 2009 is in this category. So far, my only decently-written fanfiction is my Dragonball Z fanfiction, but others may come in the future.
So, please read and enjoy. If you do not enjoy, please leave constructive criticism. Thank you much. :)
Doctor Doctor: (Dragonball Z, Rated M, Dr. Briefs/Mrs. Briefs) As the first M rated story of this pairing on this site, I am hoping to do their relationship some justice. This story takes place when Dr. Briefs is young and Mrs. Briefs is a graduate student under the supervision of Dr. Briefs. The story begins as they are trapped together due to a sandstorm and must take shelter in a small cave for a few days. Later, the graduate student still on his mind, Dr. Briefs must find the courage to woo the student before she is taken by other suitors. Since this requires a lot of creative license, updates may take longer to appear than for my other stories. Chapter 3 currently up. Chapter 4 will hopefully be up within one or two weeks. Update: I have once again picked up writing Chapter 4. With this story, it seems as though I have to be in the right mood to write it. I don't want to abandon this story for too long, so hopefully I'll get the new chapter up soon: right now, it is about one-third complete. 5/28/10
For the Love of a King: (Dragonball Z, Rated M, King Vegeta/Queen) This story gives an account of the Saiyan/Tuffle War and how King Vegeta achieved his title. A central theme to this story, of course, is how he met his queen. I am planning on having this story be kind of long, because it takes place over a year or so from during the war to after the war has ended. King Vegeta is Chief Vegeta, or simply Vegeta. Chapter 5 currently up. Update: Haha! I finally have inspiration and time for this one again. I will hopefully have Chapter 6 up within the month. 2/15/11
Inevitability: (Dragonball Z, Rated M, Vegeta/Bulma, Goku/Chi-Chi, Piccolo/OC, eventual Gohan/Videl, eventual Krillin/18) So, this is my answer to an epic fanfic (upwards of 50,000 words) since I tend to write rather short stories. The basic summary is: all shit breaks loose on Earth with the attack of the androids not being foretold by Trunks, but Frieza has never taken control of the Saiyans. There is a more detailed summary within the first chapter. Not much OOC-ness going on, only what needs to be altered due to events (ie. Vegeta's still a bit of a dick, but not as much as he is in the canon universe). Update: After a few reviews expressing interest, I have completed the second chapter. With this story, I am waiting to start the third chapter a little bit before posting the second chapter so I know where I want to go. If I take too long, just let me know so I can get my butt in gear. 10/2/12
Completed Stories: (I am only counting my recent stories in this count.)
A Week Left Wanting: (Dragonball Z, Rated M, Bulma/Vegeta) Set during the three years between the Frieza and Android Sagas, this is a canon view of how Bulma and Vegeta may have started their relationship.
A Lifetime of Learning: (Dragonball Z, Rated M, Bulma/Vegeta) This is the sequel to "A Week Left Wanting" but I have attempted it to be as canon as possible, so it can be read alone. (However, if you like "A Lifetime of Learning" I would recommend reading "A Week Left Wanting.") This story takes place during the seven years between the Cell and Majin Buu Sagas, and focuses on the development of Bulma and Vegeta's relationship.
A Moment of Madness: (Dragonball Z, Rated M, Bulma/Vegeta) A one-shot for anyone who liked "A Week Left Wanting" and "A Lifetime of Learning". Takes place around Trunks' fifth birthday. Bulma makes a deal with Vegeta: find a gift for Trunks and she will let Vegeta do anything he wants to her for one night. Just a little fun story while waiting for the sequel to "A Lifetime of Learning."
A Second for Sensuality: (Dragonball Z, Rated M, Bulma/Vegeta) Another one-shot for anyone who liked "A Week Left Wanting" and "A Lifetime of Learning". Occurs after "A Moment of Madness". Bulma must go repair a weather array, and Vegeta decides to come with her. Both have been infuriating each other. But what Bulma thinks is frustration of Vegeta not doing housework turns out be something much more precious. Just a one-shot in lieu of the direct sequel to "A Lifetime of Learning".
Please: (Dragonball Z, Rated M, Goku/Chi-Chi) A one-shot set the night before the Cell Games. Goku must comfort his wife.
An Idiot For Love: (Dragonball Z, Rated M, Gohan/Videl) A one-shot depicting the beginning of Gohan and Videl's relationship after the World Tournament. Slightly humorous and fluffy.
Future Stories: (I have the ideas for these, and hope to begin writing them soon.)
Goku's Peculiar Education: (Dragonball Z, Rated M, Goku/Chi-Chi) Since I just finished watching Dragonball, I decided I wanted to do my version of Goku and Chi-Chi's wedding night...except Goku doesn't even know the first thing about girls and sex. Chi-Chi will attempt to educate him, though she herself is rather new to everything as well. Basically, I want to do a multi-chapter story going through the education process. It will not be a long story, but will encompass at least four to five chapters. I have begun writing this one, and hope to publish it when I am done with my vacation. Expect to see it in August.
Inevitability: (Dragonball Z, Rated M, Vegeta/Bulma, Gohan/Videl, Piccolo/OC, possible Krillin/Android 18) Okay, so this is my answer to my lack of an EPIC story. No one goaded me about having one, or even mentioned that I should, but I have taken it upon myself to actually write a story that could eventually get to or past 50,000 words. The basic concept is this: It is set in an alternate universe, where the Saiyans were able to fend off Frieza by forging a tentative alliance with a confederacy of planets lead by the Amazonians. (A little bit of this is feeding to my pet race.) King Vegeta is looking for Kakarot, with the knowledge that the third-class warriors of his family have great potential. Problem is, Kakarot is no-longer on Earth, due to the Android attack. He and the surviving Earthlings have traveled to Namek, using the dragonballs to find the most suitable place for them to regain their strength. Pretty much, the idea is the timeline is the same up until Frieza's takeover. So, the Saiyans never came to Earth. It'll be a long process of getting to Namek, telling Goku he is a Saiyan, dealing with the threats of both Frieza's impending takeover of the alliance, and the Androids (and eventually Cell) coming to find Goku. Yeah, it'll take awhile, but I'm excited to write it.
An Eternity in Earnest: (Dragonball Z, Rated M, Bulma/Vegeta) This will be the sequel to "A Lifetime of Learning". It will be set after the Majin Buu Saga and spanning a few years after. Unfortunately, I wish to watch all of Dragonball, finish re-watching Dragonball Z, and watch Dragonball GT before I can accurately write this story. I have heard that GT is not worth the effort, but I have never seen it and figure I should watch it at least once. This will likely be the last of the "Future Stories" to come to fruition, simply because I need to watch so many episodes.
Untitled Krillin/Android 18: (Dragonball Z, Rated M, Krillin/Android 18) This will be set inbetween the Cell and Majin Buu Sagas, and will chronicle the development of Krillin and Android 18's relationship. I have been having a bit of writer's block with this one, but I do hope to have it started no later than the end of February.
Bedroom Follies: (Dragonball Z, Rated M, Bulma/Vegeta, Goku/Chi-Chi, possibly other pairings) This has been an idea of mine for awhile, and will soon likely become a pet project of mine. This will be a series of short happenstances of the not-so-glamorous love-lives of the main characters, primarily Bulma and Vegeta. There should be much hilarity involved. I hope to have at least one story or two up by the end of February.
As a note, you can probably tell the trend of my ratings for my recent stories. I do write mature material, so please keep that in mind while reading. Thank you. :)
