Author has written 4 stories for Final Fantasy VII, Noir, Mai HiME, and Naruto.
Finally I have decided to disclose a small amount of information about myself, whether or not any of you actually care, I really don't know. First my penname, Inuyoukess, it is a play off the Japanese word, Inuyoukai, when translated it means 'Dog Demon'. My other penname I sometimes go by, Kyuubinoheru, translates to 'Nine Tails of Hell'. Now on to myself...
Gender: You don't need to know
Name: You don't need to know
Personality: I have a very withdrawn and detached personality, I don't isolate myself but then again neither do I go out of my way to be with people. I am fully comfortable by myself as it's been that way for most of my life. I acknowledge life for what it is, pain, pleasure, misery, joy... Sometimes it's great, sometimes it's awfull... Both times will simply come to pass at one point or another. Despite what many believe, I am not a depressed person. I simply enjoy writing about the darker aspects of life. All those lovely, little dark things most people wish to ignore. About my personality itself? I am quiet, VERY quiet but not unaware of my environment. I am analytical to a fault pertaining to peoples' actions and behaviors.
Likes: Noir, Naruto, Yuri (Well written and developed ones that is), Anime, writing, reading, music
Dislikes: Society, poorly developed Yaoi / Yuri, bullies, teasing
Favorite Anime: Elfen Lied
(Noir is a close second)
UPDATE: Feb. 5, 2010
Another long time since my last update. Bad neko is bad! Anyways, yes I am still writing, no nothing is completely abandoned yet, nor will it be in the future. College life and my own personal life is quite hectic right now. My family is being a bitch as always, blah blah blah, suffice to say we don't get along very well. Currently, they are enjoying fucking up my life so unfortunately I am being double teamed by dealing with their ignorance and the demanding work of my classes. Anyways, expect a new story relatively soon. It's a Naruto fic, somewhat psychological, and of course dark, though it differs from my normal writing.
I've recently received several PM's asking me to BETA peoples' works. So, since the BETA profile thingy is quite limiting, I'll address that here:
IF YOU WANT ME TO BE YOUR BETA;
-Spell check your work. Seriously, this should be common knowledge. If you expect me to take you seriously as a writer, at least SHOW ME you're serious about what you do write.That you're a competent, knowledgeable person. Blatant CONSISTENT spelling errors only shows me you're own apathy towards your story. Don't expect me to make an effort to help you when you can't even help yourself. I'll just sit there and watch you slowly die and suffer, and I'll be perfectly happy with it.
-Make some attempt to contact me outside of your simple request. Doing so shows your own desire for improvement, and it will also help me get to know you. I am a fairly anti-social person, people, more often than not, piss me off. However that doesn't mean, I am cruel or mean. If it's talk about your writing skills, or about your story, I'll be happy to offer my assistance.
-This is going to be a somewhat controversial point, however I need to say it nonetheless. I don't BETA short chapters, this doesn't mean your chapters must be 10,000 words long, it does mean I won't BETA each 700 word chapter you write on a daily basis.
UPDATE: March 06, 2008:
Yeah it's been awhile since I've update anything (Both fics and my profile), and I apologize for that buuut... I am writing several stories at the same time. Hopefully I will release the first chapter of a Mai Hime story I am writing soon, and expect it to be a long chapter to. Maybe half done so far, and it's currently 8,000 words...
Temptress of the Night: Suffering Writer's Block, but trying to write the third chapter.
More info about myself: Several people have questioned my gender so I will answer that.. I am female. Hope that cleared some of it up...
I am registered as a BETA reader now, feel free to request any critiques of your works, or for me to be your BETA, I love helping people with their writing. If you think I'm being to lazy for my own good, feel free to IM me or Email me and tell me to get off my lazy ass and write something. Teehee, I am a very very lazy person (And proud of it!). Again, hopefully I will be able to upload the Mai Hime story relatively soon. Ja...ne... for now
I feel compelled to say a few things to the majority of authors submitting their works to this site (If any of them take the time to read this) simply because ff.net has been slowly merging from a well respected, kind, helpful, group of people into that of a place for conceited, naive, and downright pitiful, authors to seek attention. If you want attention to your stories so you can increase your writing skills, I commend you. However it is VERY, VERY rare. The majority of authors subscribed to this site, merely want acknowledgement. Driven by some compulsive need to feel their work is appreciated, they are low enough to beg for it, threatening to discontinue their fictions if not received. My advice to you, stop writing. Simple as that, if you wish for nothing more than adoration from everyone reading your works, you are living in a fairytale style of life that will one day be ripped away from you. Life, my friend, is nowhere near that comforting.
Sometimes I feel truly astounded by the stupidity some of these…. Children… hold. I don’t want to read stories depicting the exact same story line of whatever you chose to write about with changing a few minor details. Such a piece, shows little, if any, insight to what you are writing about, no creativity whatsoever, and more so further spreads the infestation of cliché driven fictions. Granted, creating original, and unique, stories is not something easily done, it takes time, a lot of it at that, not to mention the courage to do what few, if any, have done before you. Now, this hatred I hold for Cliché fictions, is mainly directed upon the more ‘mainstream’ and wildly known series. If you wish to write a story, pertaining to an anime not well known, that merely takes off where the series ended, or explores a little of what was not shown, I implore you to do so. The point of this is to get the readers thinking, to inspire others to write their own stories.
I have read thousands of stories posted here, and I can say, honestly, 99.9 (percent) are not worthy of being dubbed ‘fanfiction’ for there is no fiction in it! What they have achieved is ripping off on some other poor author’s hard earned work. Many of you value a story’s quality based upon the number of reviews it has seemed, a system with such a vast number of faults it’s ridiculous. I hate this ‘Review’ system for it is hypocrisy. A review is not just “I loved it!”. While overly short, and sweet, it is meaningless. Great! Someone loved your writing, know what that means? Nothing…. Just because it is liked does not mean your writing is well developed, clear, and organized. A review should not contain an abundance of whether or not you liked, but WHY you liked it! Why you didn’t like it! Tell the author what he/she has down well in, what he/she can improve on, and insight on how his/her writing comes off. Do you see what I am getting at? Give a critique on the work rather than meaningless words of comfort.
An issue I find particularly irritating (in most cases) is the lack of development put forth into most pairings. Characters are simply matched up together with little, if any, planning into their relationship. Unless it is a oneshot (Either 1 chapter, or split into few for sake of length) there should be at least SOME characterization, some insight into the character’s feelings for one another. Try to keep them ‘in character’ as most you can, considering what your plot is. There should be some conflict between the characters themselves, the couple and another force, or a characters struggle to organize / realize his or her own feelings. Stories depicting a character miraculously realizing their life without any hardships, and forethought offer little realisms. It can take years for a person to fully develop feelings for one another, not hours, or just a few days. The exception this, is of course, an extreme shock occurring event the character is placed through. Either way, show insight to whatever couple you are featuring, don’t make it easy for them, test their love and dedication! And please, please, please present them in a way that thousand of authors haven’t already done.
More ranting: God damnit I am fucking pissed off. Cliche, cliche, cliche... That's all I see when searching for Naruto fics. The author's may as well title their story "How I Butchered the Naruto Series" because they are all a fucking disgrace. Bah. I come back after a month away from my computer to find this shit. It sickens me. The good author's are slowly dying out, while the cliche one's are breeding like maggots! Filthy vermin unfit to write a single summary! Prove me wrong, I dare you! Write one summary to a story that is "somewhat" original and well thought out because all I see are "Naruto magically falls in love with dark haired Sasuke," or my personal favorite, "Naruto grows up with one single difference than the anime!" Oh my gosh look at that, really hard to imagine it, isn't it? Yes, really difficult for you to follow the same plot as the anime/manga with a "few" alterations.
God damnit I fucking hate cliche stories!
I feel like flaming the hell out of every single cliche story I see but I regress... To do so would take me years. It's a failed cause.
If you have ANY sense as to what makes a good story, I implore you, PLEASE continue writing. FF.net needs it!
Fanfiction.net has helped break what little faith I once had in life, for now I am truly seeing mankind for what we are. More specifically, what we are becoming, it sickens me to the point of complete hatred to see this happening. We pride ourselves upon being the ‘most’ intelligent species known, and yet here we are, leaches, feeding off each other’s accomplishments to further our own selfish goals. Indifference to our future is not something we can further tolerate! “We MUST secure tomorrow, today!” But now, I am preaching a topic most of you naïve, damned souls don’t wish to think about because it is out of your comfort zone.
Censorship goes directly against the 1st amendment! If you agree with me, go to this site and sign the petition to bring back NC-17 stories!
If you feel the need, bother me any time you wish. My AIM is inuyoukess.
Lyrics that I find appealing...
Quite possibly the most beautiful song i've ever heard:
"My dear friend I write this letter because my words can't be heard, Tears of sorrow break this silence, while your soul is flying a long way from here, Along the shore, your soul reduced to dust, I'll keep the memories in my heart and your soul in my mind, You're leaving here forever to a place of Avalon, Along the ocean the storm reduced your soul to ashes."
Congradulations to anyone who knows this song, the very few of you who do.
"Your words are like ice, they melt in the heat, the cold and the pain which you seem to breed" London After Midnight
"I give into my life, and color it with black, I listen to my heart, and hear nothing, If every day is cold, and the skies have turned to gray, Only then will I be happy with this pain" Novembers Doom
"No not again, No never again, I'll never trust no one again, I'd sooner slit my wrists and risk discovery of hell than stay another moment here where certain devils dwell." London After Midnight
"Show me heaven, show me guilt...embrace the pain, we must suffer to realize, we must despair again and again, No Longer our knees we shall bend, no longer fold our frozen hands, We long for the darkness, our flames still burn for mother night...Behold us now, as we cry, soon to die...to rise again." Draconian
As pain is my companion, solitude my guide, Your sweet affection solely offers me a threat I cannot abide, Yet you'll lose yourself in me in me, Blleed in my arms wounds within, fall from grace as I offer you sin." Sentenced
"What do I need your comfort for? If there is no place to live...Your angel cheeks are stained with blood, your hand evoking fear in me..." Diary of Dreams
"Do I make the sacrifice? To walk among the restless souls? How can I let this go on? torn between love and life, all is dead in my eyes. Death, close your eyes and welcome the truth, innocence is so sweet, for only the aging of the flesh, shall rain upon the sorows of life." Novembers Doom
"I seem to be more machine that man, Now a Shadow of what I used to be, With murder in my eyes and malice in my heart, I drop the final curtain on the bloodiest of tragedies, I quiver and shake with my remorse, As I head back into the storm from which I was born..." Aesma Daeva
"I wish I had been buried alive, to bring beauty to death, if only someone could hear my cry, I wish this night would last forever, to find another bless, in the fluid of joy that brings fear." Venin Noir
"Your heart burns for love, my soul burns for blood" Inkubus Sukkubus
"It was you who let me down, who failed to recognize me, you dragged me under, you gave up hope, it was you who let me down." Black Tape For A Blue Girl
Just some food for thought
"HOMOPHOBIA IS WRONG
I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.
I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.
I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.
We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.
I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.
I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.
I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.
I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.
We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.
I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.
I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.
I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.
I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.
I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.
I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I didn’t have to always deal with society hating me.
I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.
I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love."
