Author has written 2 stories for Ranma, and Naruto.
Hey everyone. Despite the name I am actually a guy. I had totally watched Kagome kick Naraku's ass in episode 35 of InuYasha right before I joined. Thus the name. Now some basics about me: I'm 20 years old until April, I'm originally from the state of Illinois, and I'm going to college at Indiana University. Hopefully there are no creepy stalkers reading this...
Anyway...I guess I should first address the fanfiction aspect. All my stories should be considered abandoned. I started them years ago and I just can't get myself to finish them. The Naruto one is too far gone to be saved. It's totally cliche, but since I still get alerts letting me know people are reading it, I'm going to leave it. I may not enjoy it, but saving myself embarrassment isn't worth it if even one person genuinely enjoys reading the story. The Ranma/InuYasha crossover is so barely even started that I could presumably clean it up and finish it. However, I have other priorities that I'm focusing on. I've actually stopped writing fanfiction because I'm working on a series of original novels. I like creating my own characters more than borrowing the characters of other. It gives you more freedom because there are no expectations of how a character has to act.
Sorry if this bit of news saddens anyone, but there are really much better stories out there than my early attempts. If anyone is looking for a good one, feel free to PM me and I can give out some recommendations. I still read an outrageously large amount of fanfiction. I've been reading a bit of everything lately. I find I can read anything as long as the writing is good. Things like pairing or genre don't really turn me off of a story.
This ends the whole serious bit of my intro. The rest is really fun. It has to be since it's all about me lol.

UPDATE: In honor of the new season of House, here are some awesome quotes from the show!
Dr. Cameron: So I’m thinking we should have sex.
Dr. Cuddy: (approaching with two young-looking female interns) Dr. House!
Dr. House: You think it's going to come out on its own? Are we talking bigger than a breadbasket? 'Cause actually, it will come out on its own, which for small stuff is no problem: it's wrapped up in a nice soft package and plop. Big stuff? You're gonna rip something, which, speaking medically, is when the fun stops.
Dr. Foreman: No neurologist in his right mind would recommend that.
Dr. Chase: How'd you like it if I interfered in your personal life?
Dr. House: to the crowd in the walk-in clinic's waiting area Hello, sick people and their loved ones! In the interest of saving time and avoiding a lot of boring chitchat later, I'm Doctor Gregory House; you can call me "Greg." I'm one of three doctors staffing this clinic this morning.
Dr. Cameron: I'm uncomfortable about sex.
Dr. Wilson: Billionaires buy movie studios to get laid. They buy hospitals to get respect.
Dr. Chase: I think we need to take his girlfriend's theory into account.
Dr. House: So what's your plan? You take the big dark one, I'll take the little girl, and the Aussie will run like a scared wombat if things get tough.
Dr. House: Dr. Cuddy. Thanks for the consult. His throat seems to have some condition.
Dr. House: When I decide to push you away, I hope there's a small person standing behind you so you fall down and hurt your head.
Dr. Cameron: (discussing a patient's diagnosis) What about sex?
(to Cameron at Christmas)
Dr. House: (examining a baby) No fever, glands normal. Missing her vaccination dates.
Dr. Cameron: Why did you hire me?
Those are some of my favorites. Hope you enjoyed.
Now that you think you know me, I'm ready to shatter everything you believe with one video. I promise it's good if you make it all the way through it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tHZqxecCukg
Lol, it's good isn't it. Admit it, you know you loved it. Huh, I just realized that no one is going to read this whole thing about me since I've abandoned my stories. Which means I just spent over an hour getting all of this down and nobody will even read it. cries
If someone does read it, I hope you enjoy it. I'll admit it's mostly just facts about me, but what's more interesting than me o.O
