You once told me not to despair,

That paths have a reason to cross.

With a world’s worth of wit you declared:

Not all those who wander are lost.

A man who wanders alone,

And the beasts that ravage his nation.

Their unyielding duel is postponed.

Is there more that awaits than damnation?

From the ashes shall a fire awaken.

The shadows yield an omniscient light.

Take hold of the blade once forsaken.

Your eyes are too shrewd to lose sight.

A king who relinquished his throne.

A ghost of a land torn asunder.

To take in hand sword justly honed...

For what do I fight now I wonder?

Reluctance will dull best of blades.

But swung with ample will we are stronger.

Stand tall and I’ll come to your aid.

But retreat and I’ll serve you no longer.

To wander is not to be lost.

To be rogue is to walk without course.

To abandon them or to pay the cost?

To hold true is to return to the source.

Imbue me now with your conviction.

I am far too old to fear death.

But enough for one final infliction?

I am Lost, but I’ll fight to last breath.

Hi there! I'm a 23 year old anime/manga enthusiast from Massachusetts.

I thought I'd spread some of these around as a way to promote new story ideas. These are mostly pretty broad ideas, so have fun and get creative with them. If you happen to be reading my profile and decide to try your hand at one of these, feel free to shoot me a PM and I'll take a look!

One Piece: Any story in which Luffy's main source of inspiration is Mihawk instead of Shanks, or perhaps both. Preferably, the story will have changes to accommodate this that don't involve Mihawk visiting East Blue instead of Shanks for some reason. Play around a bit, try to make the ripples realistic.

Dragon Ball: A time travel story in which one of the main cast is sent back from the Super era to the early Z era. Preferably this story will combine concepts from both Super and Z, since the two are quite different.

My Hero Academia: A story in which Izuku is still quirkless, but never let it discourage him, training his mind and body for 10 years to prepare for the hero life regardless, before finally receiving One For All and being that much stronger for it.

Harry Potter: A story in which one of the Hogwarts Professors other than Dumbledore goes back in time to better prepare Harry for the Second Wizarding War. My top choices for this role would be either Snape or McGonagall, but that's up to you. The time travel and ripples aside, try to keep the story as true to canon as possible.

Avatar: The Last Airbender: Any story in which Zuko is a prodigy like Azula, but still keeps his morality and conscience like in canon. The rest of the details are up to you.

Danny Phantom: I have yet to see a single Peggy Sue fic in this fandom, and you guys know how fond I am of those, so if you feel like being the first to write a story where Danny Fenton must relive his hardships since the day of the accident, you'll already have my interest piqued.

Avengers: Basically same as above. Pick one of the Avengers (Tony Stark, Thor, Steve Rogers, etc), and send them back from Infinity War to the early stages of the MCU (The Infinity Stone of Time is an easy way to manage this, but take your pick). Props to you if you decide to start this before Avengers: Infinity War comes out in April.

Crossover: Take a character from any of the above fandoms and insert them into another (cause and circumstances are up do you). Here's the catch: the character has to be traveling from their own universe to another that is generally considered the more powerful or advanced of the two. So you could take a character from Avatar: The Last Airbender or and insert them into One Piece, or you could take one from One Piece and insert them into Dragon Ball. The end goal is for said character to experience growth that they never could in their original universe. If you want, you could even have them return to their own universe at the end of the story and show off a bit, because why not?

Like I said, there are a lot of possibilities, so have fun with these!

I now have an account on FictionPress, as well as a Patre-on page, both under the name "Quintessential Fiction."

Second Wind reviews
Luffy and Zoro awaken in two different parts of East Blue, both with the same thing on their mind. Protect the crew. There would be no failures this time around, Captain's orders. As bits and pieces of the unknown past that the two comrades share are gradually revealed, the rest of the crew can only speculate. For all their absolute resolve, they're hiding something. On hiatus.

Mercy reviews
"You'll spend the rest of your life an empty shell of your self proclaimed greatness. You'll know, in every waking hour you wish for death, that you are defeated. Disgraced. Dishonored, as I once was. But for you, there will be no redemption. That is my mercy, Ozai." Zuko centric AU. Overpowered Zuko. Dark one shot.

Will the Wise reviews
The Mind Flayer's possession of Will had lasting effects that no one could have foreseen. For better or for worse, he was irreversibly involved in all this, and sooner or later, he'd have to face that uncompromising truth. And if he had to leave the old, scared, fragile Will behind? Well, stranger things have happened. A Will-centric story about loyalty, perseverance, and wisdom.

Avatar: Flare of Redemption reviews
If Katara was being honest with herself, Zuko seemed drastically different than when he had left her unconscious in the Spirit Oasis just hours ago. "I know you need to end this war," he said to Aang, his voice warped with an incomprehensible resolve that sent shivers down her spine. "I only hope that when the time comes, you'll do what needs to be done." Time Travel AU.

A Fatal Vow reviews
The first time Zuko set foot in the Western Air Temple, his redemption was everything to him. By the time he returned there, he knew, looking back, that it had almost been his undoing. Nevertheless, this time, he vowed that he would truly redeem himself, no matter what it took. And thus, he was undone. Book Three AU. Oneshot. I don't own Avatar: The Last Airbender.

The Lone Warrior's Absolution reviews
All Lazuli saw that night was a flash of blue, before he was in the wind. When he returned, she could only wonder why he was so closed off. But every now and then, she'd catch glimpses of him when his guard was down. What she saw worried her. He was a noble guardian, a silent protector, and above all, a man in pain. A lone warrior, seeking absolution.

Roar of the Pride reviews
What if Vegeta had different motivations growing up? What if his drive had come from a different source? What if he had truly found his pride from the beginning? How would this different mindset shape his actions? With something worth fighting for, the Saiyan Prince is ready to lave his mark on the universe. Slightly Vegeta centric AU.

Nindo Reborn reviews
Madara Uchiha had achieved his goal. To transcend the Sage of the Six Paths. After doing so, he singlehandedly brought the ninja world to ruin, slaughtering the Shinobi alliance and ending the war. After dying in the battle against him, Naruto Uzumaki somehow finds himself in a Konoha still standing, in a time before the nightmare began. Can he change the future? Time Travel AU.

Whirlpool Saga reviews
Naruto Uzumaki was always told that he had no family. At best, they were dead. At worst, he was abandoned. How will he react when a redhaired shinobi arrives in Konoha and actually takes an interest in his wellbeing? How will this change affect him? How will it subsequently affect the shinobi world? Stronger Team 7. AU after chapter 1.
