Want to know what I like? Then keep on reading.
I like to collect anything about Anime, play video games, make Internet web sites, edit graphics, explore the Internet, play Dungeons and Dragons, read mangas, read/write fanfics, make AMVs, and watch movies at the theater with my husband and friends.
As a Reader/Writer:
Reading and writing are just a hobby that I love to do. I only read stories about Anime and video games, though I have taken a liking to read ones about Harry Potter and SeaQuest DSV. I have a few stories and concepts that I started to write, but I'm very inconsistent with what I want. So I will not publish anything here unless is finished because I hate it when others don't finish their stories. Since my muse has been quite dead for the past years because of very personal reasons, I don't think I'll ever finish anything anytime soon though.
The aspects I love the most in stories (reading as well as writing) are lots of angst, dark / matured themes, and serious story line (though I might read a few comedies, as well as other themes). To put it simple, I mostly like stories where my favorite characters suffer because they have mental angst (over the past or present situations), are tortured, injured, sick, try to commit suicide (succeed or not), or are killed (either by someone or slowly because of something). I like to read/write out of characters situations and alternative universe stories (though both depend heavily on the story and my mood), as well as crossovers from the same universe (example: like Suikoden IV / Suikoden V) . Of course, I only like this in the fantasy and fiction world. In real life I really, really hate to see someone I love suffer.
My favorite pairs are usually the main characters when they are implied as such in an Anime or video game (examples: Ritsuka x Soubi from Loveless, Chrno x Rosette from Chrno Crusade, or Tidus x Yuna from Final Fantasy 10). I don't care if it's a boy/boy couple because I love yaoi / shounen-ai. Is very rare for me to like a pair that is not implied in the main story line of an Anime or video game. There are however some exceptions (though it depends heavily on my mood and how a story is progressing), as I have read stories with the characters I like the most as alternative pairs (example: Kamui x Subaru from X/1999 or Tir x Lazlo from Suikoden's I / IV).
About My Favorites Below:
I have read many, many stories over the years since I became a member of this web page (that was in December 2003). I like many stories, but down below I left only those that are over 10 chapters long. Over time, it became difficult to find any specific story among so many, so one shots and multi-chapter stories (complete or incomplete that have 1 to 9 chapters) are saved in my computer files. This is for authors to know, in case I reviewed your story but you don't see it in my favorites (I usually add recent and still updated stories to my alerts, though).
