Name: thephaw - nickname I've had since I hilariously misspelled my own last name when I burned it into a bowl during a junior high shop class
Gender: The chauvinistic pig-like one though I may or may not have any chauvinistic or pig-like traits
Age: Some time between gestation and death. Your guess is as good as mine O_O
Horoscope: Taurus and year of the Ox. Mooo!
Hey I'm thephaw and when I'm bored, I write fanfictions. Why? No reason, sometimes I just get random ideas that pop into my head and I wanted to put it down on paper... err e-paper or whatever... Just don't expect my stories to be WTFBBQSAUCEAWESOME!
I love manga. I'm generally a sucker for anything with comedy. And I love suspense/thrillers... like Deathnote which is probably one of my all-time favorite manga. I'd write a fanfic on it... but I have no ideas.
As for the anime... bleh. The manga is usually a billion times better than any anime that comes after it. I do occassionaly watch original animes though. I also love anything by Miyazaki cuz that guy is just a genius.
Anyways, read my stories if you want. I generally don't care anymore if people read or review. But if you have any suggestions or whatever for any of my stories, feel free.
Likes: Skittles, Playing Games, Writing, Reading, and a ton of other stuff that I can't be bothered to think of right now
Dislikes: Twizzlers, Stupidity, Arrogance, and some of those extreme difficulty missions in Trauma Centre: New Blood for the Wii (Why does fake surgery have to be so damn hard?)
Games you should play:
Rune Factory Frontier (Wii) - From the creators of Harvest Moon. I've never played the Harvest Moon games (cuz farming turned me off) but I'll tell you that RFF is way too fun for it's own good. There's just so much to do that I wish there was more time in a day to play it. It's pretty much a farming sim, social sim (like animal crossing), dungeon crawler, and RPG all in one. If you've never played this type of game before, I recommend at least renting the game to see if it's your thing. I was skeptical about it at first but once I got into it... Rune Factory just got a new rabid fan.
Trauma Centre: New Blood (Wii) - If I had this game when I was a kid, I would have aspired to be a surgeon. That's how much fun this game is. Don't be fooled... this is NOT a surgery simulation. This is pure arcade-like action goodness dressed up as a game about surgery. Realism is traded for more fun tools such as the magic fix-it goo (antibiotic gel) and lasers (for those dastardly viruses that cut open organs and drops tumors like bombs). The voice acting is surprisingly good but the story is meh and the intro reminds me of House's intro with better music. But be forewarned, the game is hard; that's part of the enjoyment. This game is for sadistic people who enjoy difficulty; especially those like me who aren't satisfied until they get top ranks on the hardest missions.
World of Warcraft (PC) - Really fun... but only when you're level 80 and raiding the latest dungeons. Leveling is a chore and PvP is an imbalanced joke so I wouldn't bother with those. But raiding (both 10 man and 25 man) is a true team effort and is ridiculously fun as long as you're with a good guild. And don't believe people who say only fat nerdy losers play WoW. The player-base is really diverse; guys and girls ranging anywhere from 12 year-old brats to professional people like doctors and lawyers (there's one in my guild, haha). You'll have to make friends if you want to get anywhere in the game and it's always interesting talking about weird crap over vent during raids where everyone is having a blast.
Braid (PC and Xbox 360) - A 2-D side-scroller. It plays like Mario and even has some nifty Mario references (The princess is in another castle!) but the similarities end there. In Braid you play as some middle-aged looking guy named Tim who wears a business suit. His goal? To save some princess who is apparently holed up in some castle somewhere. As you go through the levels, your goal is to collect puzzle pieces. Sounds simple, right? Well it's not. Getting the puzzle pieces are puzzles in themselves, almost always verging on impossible through normal means. They're always in plain sight but getting to them will require extensive thinking... and Tim's ability to rewind time. I suggest you find a real review to find out more about this game. It's worth it. By the way, the last level is sheer genius. It's like-HOLY ST!-and blows your mind with it's awesomeness.
Plants vs Zombies (PC) - I was surprised at how fun this game was. The premise? Zombies are attacking your house and they want one thing... YOUR BRAINS! Your only defense happens to be your garden of zombie killing plants. If you've ever played a tower defense game then you should know what to expect. Zombies travel across your lawn and you need to lay down plants to kill them before they can get to your house. The zombies are not to be underestimated, however. They can equip buckets on their heads, pole vault over your defenses, dig underground, and drive zamboni machines, among others. There's even a zombie (looks like Michael Jackson) who does the thriller dance and summons backup-dancer zombies as they proceed to maul your plants to get to your brains. Just play it! Be warned though, it gets addictive.
Manga you should read:
GTO: Stands for Great Teacher Onizuka. It's a classic. If you can get over the art style (you'll get used to it after a while) the story is well done. You'll laugh and cry... it's an emotional roller coaster. Definately one of my favorites.
Death Note: A great read. The art is great and the story is full of suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat through most chapters. The two main characters (Light and L) are well done and you'll end up rooting for one of them or maybe even both. The 'I know that he knew I knew he knows' internal monologues get a bit ridiculous sometimes but overall it's a great read.
GANTZ: This is the most unpredictable manga I've ever read. You never know what will happen. Main characters will die. Stories will go in different directions. The monsters and aliens they fight are just... weird. (The lastest one is a giant naked woman made out of other naked women wtf is this mangaka smoking!?)
Beezlebub: About a guy who finds a demon baby and now has to raise it. A hilarious good time.
One Piece: It's now my favorite manga of all time! And I don't really like the art, now that's saying something. Seriously, this manga is totally unpredictable and like a roller-coaster of emotions. Like GTO, you'll laugh, you'll cry (or at least have this huge lump in your throat), and you'll keep wanting more when you get to the latest chapters. In my opinion, One Piece is like a billion times better than Naruto and Bleach combined, both of which are really overrated in terms of story and character.
Fairy Tail: Typical shounen action manga. I like it a lot better than Naruto or Bleach. The characters are just so much more endearing and the story doesn't take itself too seriously which is a good thing in my book. Plus, it's a lot like One Piece, which is a huge plus in my book.
Gamble Fish: The main character is a crazy badass. And every arc, he gets crazier and even more badass if you can believe it. A psychological thriller on par with Liar Game and Deathnote in my opinion. Read now!
Pairings I like:
SasuxSaku: I know there are a ton of people who don't like SasuSaku for whatever reason. For me they just work. Sasuke needs somebody to love him and Sakura seems to love him pretty completely. Yes I know Sasuke is one cold-hearted bastard but it's not his fault. And the Shippuden Sakura is stronger and less insecure and I think the new Sasuke is opening up a little too. They make a good couple.
NaruxSaku: I honestly like this pairing more than NaruHina. They seem to know each other and understand each other pretty well. And although Sakura seems to like yelling at him and beating him up for his stupid/perverted antics, I think they have a great chemistry together.
NaruxHina: I don't mind this pairing. Pairing up the future Hokage with the future heiress to the Hyuuga clan has a certain appeal to it. My only complaint is that Hinata is a little too shy for my tastes. And Naruto is as far from shy as you can get. I know opposites attract but it gets a little ridiculous.
ShikaxTem or ShikaxIno: I like both pairings equally. Shikamaru is just that lazy bastard that wouldn't do anything unless agressive women like Temari or Ino put him in his place. If you think about it, Temari and Ino are really similar. Both are self-confident, domineering, and 'troublesome' women with hidden soft sides. They're perfect for Shika. And though canon screams ShikaTem, I believe ShikaIno would work perfectly well.
SousukexChidori: Super dense military otaku = win. Violent hot-blooded tsundere-type character = also win. They were made for each other. As for Tessa, she's super cute and everything but it's obvious that Sousuke has no romantic interest in her. In fact, I kind of feel sorry for Tessa. She deserves love too! In any case, there's so much sexual tension building up in the anime and light novels that when they finally admit their feelings and get together, I demand that their universe detonate--no, explode--no, EXPLODONATE with awesome.
IchigoxOrihime: I'm sorry but that scene where Orihime chats up a sleeping Ichigo right before she leaves to Hueco Mundo won me over. Seriously, before that scene I really didn't care who Ichigo ended up with. I mean, Rukia is nice and all but I don't see her being with Ichigo. I also liked the idea of an IchigoxNell pairing when her um... adult form, was revealed. But now, not so much. Ichihime ftw!
Where I stand on Yaoi:
Sorry, but being a straight guy, I don't really read, write, or advocate yaoi in any way. If you enjoy it, good for you, I have nothing against that. I just assume that the majority of yaoi is written by fangirls for fangirls and so would be fairly unrealistic. So unless more gay people start writing fanfics, I question the honesty of the majority of yaoi fics out there.
What about Yuri:
I don't read this either... though I admit I wouldn't mind reading these, lol. I know, hypocrite, right? I think it's just because I'm a typical guy. And what kind of straight guy wouldn't want to see two (or more) hot women going at it?
I don't mind them but honestly, I think things like these are better left to the reader's imagination. But that's just personal opinion. If you want to write out sexually explicit scenes in your fanfics, they'd better be good or I would just feel cheated or disappointed, especially if the story would've been better off without it.
Where I stand on OCs:
If they're well written, I love them. People tend to Mary Sue or Gary Stu their characters though. I always wince when I read about characters that seem invincible, or can do no wrong, or have no real weaknesses. They just become static characters who ruin the canon characters around them. I also hate those self-insertion stories. They're usually just as bad.

An Ardent Path to Redemption - A what happens if Sasuke were trained by Kushina instead of Orochimaru. Currently struggling with chapter 4 because there are just so many possibilities with this fic. Especially the way I set things up... (sigh).
Beyond Ambitions - A story that continues from chapter 213 of the manga. Sasuke doesn't train with Orochimaru and instead trains himself for his avenger goals. Naruto and his new team are sent off to find him and the story takes off from there. When inspiration hits I'll update it. I wrote it without a plan for the plot and now I'm kind of snagged on where to go with it. So for now it's on hiatus.
Children of the Sky - An Air Gear / Naruto crossover. A story where Ikki and the rest of Kogarasumaru are sucked into Naruto's world. Think a Naruto story where he gets ATs and he's mentored and trained by the Air Gear teens.
Our Dumb Village - A satirical look at the Naruto world through panel discussions, newscasts, and interviews. Pretty much just pure crack. Seriously, don't read this crap. It's just something for me to vent random ideas out.
Broken Whispers - A Naruto/FMP crossover. Set when both Naruto and Sousuke are children.
The Jutsu of Haruhi Suzumiya - What happens when Kyon and Haruhi find themselves in the Narutoverse. Written in the narrative style of the Haruhi Suzumiya series.
Copy and Paste Fun!
(These are just parodies of copy and paste snippets. Feel free to copy and paste them into your own profiles though.)

98 percent of teenagers do or have tried smoking pot. If you are part of this overwhelming majority, shake your head in shame at your own stupidity while at the same time patting yourself on the back for having the courage to try new things. When you're done that, copy&paste this in your own profile.
