Hi, Kess here. I don't actually write any stories, but i read a lot... and i thought that maybe someone would actually find this page and decide that they were bored enough to read. Anyway... some stuff about me _
Hair : Dark brown and medium length as of right now
Eyes: Too dark for most color contacts to work, which is unfortunate becuase i've always wanted green eyes...
Updating this. More for my own sake since i always come to my profile site to check on my favorites and it bugs me that some of the info is now wrong. I still love manga and anime. After all, all my favorites are of those genres. I finally have cable/wireless internet, so the manga/anime world isliterally at my fingertips. My horizons have thus broadened signicifantly.
Inuyasha (manga, anime, movies)
Kenshin (anime.. haven't read all of the manga yet)
Teen Titans (anime/cartoon)
Cardcaptor Sakura (ditto.. although i'm outgrowing it)
Marmalade Boy (manga)
Escaflowne (anime...i don't like the manga)
Aishiteruze Baby (manga)
Hana Kimi aka Hanazakari no Kimitachi e aka For You in Full Blossom (manga)
Hana Yori Dango (manga and chinese live)
Parfait Tic (manga)
Minto na Bokura (manga)
Hunter x Hunter (manga)
etc.. etc..etc... (as you can see... extensive growth)
Now all of those are my most most most favorites.. although Escaflowne can get annoying (they're so dumb sometimes) and i'm out growing CCS. The others are absolutely amazing and everyone should read/watch them. The last three are more shounen (guy-ish) and the manga in the middle is pretty shoujo (girly).
I still love to play most sports. Like soccer (which i suck at) tennis (suck REALLY badly at) and volleyball (which i can play! yay!). Swimming is also fun.. and i'm up for most sports. Football rules... esp when it's NOT tackle i'm playing.
And since when i find something i love, i always want to share, some fanfiction to read if you like these anime/mangas (not in any particular order):
For All We Know by em-n-lilac.
This is a wonderful wonderful story with TONs of fluff... although a tiny bit angsty because Kagome remembers the feudal story and not the wonderful fluff life she wakes up in. Not always a page turning plot but a VERY sweet story.
2004 Dorei Youkai Tokyo by Midoriko-sama.
This one has a kinda bad summary (no offense to the author) but is a really good story. It might take a chapter or two to get into it, but it's really sweet and has a lot of romance. It also has an interesting plot with a problem that needs to be solved. Umm.. and i'm not sure what happened to her. She suffered a bout of plagerism (i'm not sure i spelled that right, and i mean someone plagerized this story off of her) and has since been absent.
Dead Famous by Rozefire.
GREAT story! Rozefire is a wonderful author and her 'my funny valentine' is a lovely flufftastic work also. This is not her only great work, so check out her other fanfics! But anyway, Dead Famous sounded kinda dubious, esp since i was a little adverse to AU stories, but Inuyahsa is not OOC. It has humor and drama and is a wonderful story!
Pickle Ice Cream by minty fresh socks.
This is a short funny oneshot. It's cute and sweet also. The summary and title pretty much tell it all.
Broadway Baby by del-kaidin
An AU, but very nice. A startlingly different Inuyasha in some ways (he has black hair for one, and you know what that means) but it is a wonderful story and quite deep. Go check out her sequel also, Broadway Bound.
Temporary by Rogue Pryde
I'll say this up front, it's a tear jerker. But it's well worth it also since it's beautifully written. You know she's gone from the start.. and i, who absolutely hate sad things, continued because even though it hurts, it's amazing. Not recommended for everyone, and you know who you are.
Sueric. period. I'm not gonna bother listing her titles (i'm lazy, so sue me) but if you love inu-kag romance she is the author to read.
The Lucky Ones (on mediaminer.org)
I forgot her name.. go search for it. It's worth it. It may take a little time to get into since there's a lot of detail and what not, but when you finish it you'll be amazed at the ... the... searches for appropriate word overawe-ingamazingfabulousness of it all. It leaves you feeling content and warm.
In These Final Hours by Zeh Wulf.
When first reading the summary, i thought she had it all backwards... but MAN, when I started reading... This is definitely a MUST READ! It's cute and sweet and romantic, but it has a HELL of a plot and is HILAROUS! Go check out her website for the story sketch thing, it's a great read to see her roughdraft with her thoughts after reading the story. Her inuyasha fanfic is also pretty cute.
Broken Pieces by Linay
Dark, angsty but very well written. It is one of the few Kenshin fanfics i've found enjoyable. Hmm.. but since i've been reading so much inuyasha, kaoru seemed very fanfic kagome to me.
Wild Flower by Peacewish.
I usually have problems with cardcaptor stories... i mean there's so little to play with unless you go AU, and those are tricky. However i found this and decided that AU really wasn't that bad after all. It's a little crazy, and Sakura is changed, but it's definitely one of the best CCS fanfics out here.
Promises to Keep by ChibiRisu-chan.
This one is continuation and is well written. It's also quite cute and funny with a little drama as well. I'm still confused as to the direction the plot is headed, but it's so cute and sweet and fun that i don't care.
Ack... i'm lazy by now. Anyway, they're all by the same author and it's all good!
I hope i've helped any passers by to find some new reading material. I know i always go check out my favorite author's fav's for recs. I realize this place is rather obscure... but oh well. at least it will help me remember ones i've read and loved if i ever want to look back.
Some of the ones i may not have put up because i didn't think them the best, even if i read them over and over. I've started to actually weed out the ones that aren't good and stop reading them. (I used to just put all the stories i was currently reading on the favorites site, planning to lose them if i didn't like it when it was done) Or, i just might not have much to say about them... like i can't figure it out even though the writing is good. The ones i put up are just a few of my favorites... and i probably forgot a few so i'll update later. I won't put up many more though... despite probably finding a ton (73 and counting, yipes!). It depends on my mood and if i feel like typing a lot.
