About My Writing Style:

Don't just write the characters, write for the characters. Tell their story, not yours.

None of my stories turned out how I planned, and I don't expect any of my future stories to do so either. This is because I let the characters do what they would do instead of what I want them to do just so the story will go exactly how I planned.

I observe the characters and write how they would handle a certain situation and it flows from there. This can cause my story line to change as well as the characters themselves to change gradually. The change in the characters can result in some readers thinking the characters are being OOC in some parts. So, all I can say on that subject is that nobody human stays exactly the same throughout their entire lives.

Even though they are technically anime characters, they are written as humans, and must abide to human nature. People change over time and through circumstances they go through, so a small amount of "OOC"-ness can be expected and should be accepted rationally.

I don't want to get all philosophical or anything, but to state the obvious facts of the world, events of life make way for change in the person who is affected by these events. That should be enough to explain away any type of OOC-ness in my stories. I'm saying this because I, myself, usually hate the characters to be overly OOC. I like how they are depicted in the actual anime, so they will still mostly be like that in the fics I write.

Okay, enough of my rambling. I just wanted to get this out there in case anybody was wondering. Either that, or I am extremely bored right now. Well, thanks to anyone who actually read that!

"Writing is not a job description. A great deal of it is luck. Don't do it if you are not a gambler because a lot of people devote many years of their life to it. I think people become writers because they are compulsive wordsmiths." -Margaret Atwood

"The art of writing is to explain the complications of the human soul with the simplicity that can be universally understood." -Allan Sillitoe

"Don’t ask a writer what he’s working on. It’s like asking someone with cancer on the progress of his disease." -Luke Angel

"To me the greatest pleasure of writing is not what it's about, but the music the words make." -Truman Capote

"Do what you feel in your heart to be right - for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't." -Eleanor Roosevelt

"Pay no attention to what the critics say... Remember, a statue has never been set up in honor of a critic!" -Jean Sebelius

"Asking a working writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamppost how it feels about dogs." -Christopher Hampton

"If you are not criticized, you may not be doing much." -Donald H. Rumsfeld

"Criticism is easy, and art is difficult." -Phillipe V. Destouches

Favorite Naruto Pairings:

Sasuke/Hinata

Itachi/Hinata

Gaara/Hinata

Neji/Hinata

Naruto/Hinata

Side Pairings I like:
These pairings I like when they're just side pairings in stories. I won't actually read a story with them as the main pairing.

Naruto/Sakura

Lee/Sakura

Tenten/Lee

Kankuro/Tenten

Shikamaru/Ino

Naruto/Ino

Shikamaru/Temari

Choji/Ino

Kurenai/Asuma

Kurenai/Kakashi

Pairings I hate:
These are pairings that I really can't tolerate even a little. I won't even read a story with them as a side-pairing. Ridiculous, I know, but it really sickens me for some reason.

Neji/Tenten

Neji/Ino

Neji/Sakura

Sasuke/Sakura

Sasuke/Ino

Sasuke/Karin

Itachi/(anyone other than Hinata)

Gaara/(anyone other than Hinata)

Any yaoi/yuri pairings. It's just not my thing...


STORIES COMPLETED, IN PROGRESS, AND NOT UPLOADED YET:

If any of you want to draw pictures for any of my stories, it'd be well appreciated. I love seeing the pictures you guys draw, so if you ever get inspired, please go right ahead. Cause, you know, those pictures also inspire me to write. Hehe.


Requiem For A Dying Heart
Rated: Teen
This is my first fanfic, as well as my first SasuHina story. It's pretty Anti-OCC for the most part. I try to keep the characters as much in-character as I can without ruining the main plot. It definitely takes a lot of patience to do this. Or at least for me it does. Please check it out if you haven't already. COMPLETE

The Final Lullaby
Rated: Teen
This is the second installment to Requiem for a Dying Heart. It's basically all about the challenges Sasuke and Hinata have to overcome to truly claim their happiness. Certain members of the rookie nine are getting married, and new "members" are arriving. It may all seem like the perfect happy ending, but with marriage and true happiness comes even more chaos. This time, a more familiar villain comes in to ruin their relationship. COMPLETE

The picture drawn by doll-fin-chick for The Final Lullaby.
This is drawn by subakukyuu, and it's an adorably cute picture of Sasuke and a pregnant Hinata.

Length: 472 pages on Microsoft Word (Whew...)


The Ultimate Snowball Fight
Rated: Teen
This is a SasuHina and a very light-hearted one at that. It's also a one-shot and will not turn into anything else, so I apologize. As if you couldn't guess from the title, it's revolves around a snowball fight between the rookie nine and team gai. The only thing that makes this a romance is the SasuHina fluff at the end. COMPLETE


Possession
Rated: Mature
This is my first NejiHina story, so give it a chance. It's also my first AU. It's mainly a what-if story on what life would be like if Hizashi, Neji's father, was born first making Neji the heir to the Hyuga clan. Check it out if you're curious, you just might like it! COMPLETE

Here's the link to the awesome picture that mysterio1247 drew for the story "Possession".
This link will take you to another excellent drawing for this story by Aisuruitachiwakoi.

This is the link that will show you what Hinata's engagement/wedding ring looks like from the last chapter.

Length: 353 pages on Microsoft Word.


Divinity
Rated: Mature
This story is an ItaHina that I am currently working on. So far, I am led to believe that it will definitely be a long one. The synopsis of the story is a complete AU and will be primarily fantasy as well as obvious romance between a notorious demon and an innocent deity. Sounds confusing right now, but all will be explained and realized when it's released. IN PROGRESS

A huge THANK YOU to all these artists who have taken the time to draw something beautiful for this story. You guys are truly the backbone of Divinity, so thank you!

Lullaby For a Demon:


Seven Deadly Sins
Rated: Mature
This will be a SasuHina story and each chapter will be written according to the seven deadly sins as well as the holy virtues, so there will be fourteen chapters in all. Currently re-thinking the plot-line. NOT UPLOADED YET


Macabre
Rated: Mature
This will be my first GaaHina, and it will be a one-shot only. It's more along the lines of a horror/romance since there will be a lot of bloodshed and a very terrified Hinata. COMPLETE


Sanguine
Rated: Mature
This will be my first GaaHina long-chapter story. I'm attempting to make this as "real" as I can, so it really makes it seem like this could happen in the actual Naruto series. Like most great romances, this one will start as an understanding between two people, which later develops to friendship and finally love. Currently re-thinking the plot-line. NOT UPLOADED YET


UPDATES:

(5/27/12) DIVINITY READERS: I have uploaded a new chapter! And here's a little extra note for those that check these updates...In the next chapter, I will describe Hinata's tattoo, and in doing so, I will reference my profile picture. My current profile picture is what I had in mind when I was deciding what her tattoo would look like. See you next update!

If you have any questions that you definitely want answered, whether it pertains to my fics or not, please send me a private message. I don't usually have the time to reply to reviews, so if it's something you would really like an answer to, I'll make sure to answer the PM. Thank you!
