Author has written 4 stories for Code Lyoko, Teen Titans, and Inuyasha.
Hey, there. My name's Origamikungfu, and I've been a member of FanFiction.Net for quite a while.
What's usually in my favorite stories and the stories I write?: Love; angst; opportunities for redemption; family drama; tragedy; twisty but happy endings; beautiful clothes; crazy amounts of lush detail; characters' deep, dark thoughts; and a dash of Japanese poetry.
That said, I've started writing a few different stories over the years about my favorite stories and would like to thank all of my readers who have taken the time to review my stuff. Sorry I was not quite as good at finishing said stories, lol. But now I'm back, I am trying really hard to finish my one "Dying to Live"... it's one of those stories that you play out in your brain over and over and it grows and grows, so I really want to share it with you guys. But I'll definitely keep reading other peeps' work as well, as always.
My favorite stories to read fanfiction for are mainly Inuyasha, Avatar the Last Airbender (I haven't had a chance to watch Korra yet, but once I do, I'm sure I'll be all into that too! But honestly, if both the shows were all about Zuko, that's the only thing that could make them better), some Danny Phantom, Harry Potter (I'm a SnapexLily lover for the most part), and Eureka 7 and maybe even Eureka 7 AO (but honestly AO ended so disappointingly for me - if anyone ever wants to have a rant session over that one, let me know), and Star Wars (love anything about Vader and Padme).
Anyway, peace for now friends,
--Updates: Dying to Live
Dear readers: With the posting of "Chapter 29" I made the decision to raise the rating on Dying to Live to "M", though I think that the nature of the storytelling should remain about the same. You can find some brief explanation at the end of that chapter. Feel free to drop me a PM with any responses to the new rating. ;)

Hey all, well we're well into another year with Dying to Live and I've been meaning to express my huge gratitude here on my profile to everybody who's started to follow it between 2013 and 2014. I have to laugh when I see that it was first published nearly five years ago. I did think about doing a total repost when I picked up the story again during the middle of 2013 after a crazy, nearly four year hiatus. But then I thought, "Nah, that's like totally starting over on it again." I'm glad for all my followers who didn't let that super old publish date turn them off. You guys are definitely a huge reason why it lives on today.
Dying to Live is going to be one of those epic tales, no doubt, because of how long I've had the story on my mind. It's the product of countless car, bus, train, subway, and plane rides. I've worked on it at some point or another in at least five different countries and living in five different houses during the past two years. The characters have followed me around all over the place, and it's been one of my greatest rewards whenever I get to work on it, whether sitting, standing, or laying down, in the middle of my hectic schedule.
As for the initial inspiration that hit me over five years ago when I started it, I think I must have asked myself one day after reading yet another fic for my favorite ship (Rin/Sesshomaru, of course), why is it that Rin is always the one who seems to wind up needing saving? What if it was Sesshomaru? What would be the worst thing he could imagine happening to him? Just what would that situation look like? And that's how it was born.
Hope you all continue to enjoy Dying to Live throughout 2014, and if you enjoy a certain part just drop me a review and know that you've really made this author's day :)
