Author has written 32 stories for Darker than BLACK.
8/26/15: I have finally joined the rest of the world and gotten a tumblr account! You can find me here: thereal-tsuki-llama. But be warned, I still have no idea what I'm doing...
3/12/15: The amazing and amazingly patient najas has translated One Hour at a Time and Distractions into Russian, here and here - check them out if you read Cyrillic (or just like playing around with Google Translate)! [Edit: none of my links appear to be actually working, even though they work fine from the editor page. The translations are at ficbook*net]
Shipping: I don't have an OTP. I ship Hei/Amber, Hei/Misaki, and Hei/Yin. Each relationship is different, but I think that they're all plausible and interesting/appealing in their own ways. One caveat with Yin: no no no no no to her having a romantic or physical relationship while she's very childlike or doll-like. It's very rape-y and just NO. I will not read/review those stories.
I don't like November/anybody pairings, mostly because contractors by definition aren't emotional and romantic, and it just doesn't work. Especially with November. I have yet to read a story that can pull this off in a believable way.
Season 2: What season 2? Seriously, I don't consider S2 to be part of canon, for reasons referenced above. So if you comment on my stories about something that happens in S2 (or the manga), I will plug my ears and sing the Star-Spangled Banner until the horrible memories go away. I won't read stories that are set during or after S2, or have S2 characters because they were all so awful (unless I already know that you're a good author; then I'll try to stomach it). Stories set post-S2 that reference it briefly and then carry on as if S2 never happened, with S1 characters - those are okay, usually. But any reference to Izunami makes me want to throw things.
