Author has written 3 stories for Tokyo Mew Mew, and Naruto.
INTRODUCTION AND AVATAR
Hi! I'm Kohikari (or Hinohikari, or Judy-chan, or what have you), and I lurk like it's going out of style. Part of it is laziness, part of it is having nothing to say, and part of it is that it frequently takes me and my OCD hours to finalise any sort of review or comment or email or what have you...so, haha, um, I read and read and read and only review if I have something I'm absolutely itching to say, usually involving timelines or codes or something nitpicky like that that only a freak like me would notice. I know a lot of people get ticked off with lurkers like me, so, um, sorry in advance and/or belatedness? ^^;
The furry slug in the picture is Candace, my crotchety old lady (clawless toothless leukemia'd and still terrorising my house); I'm now also fostering (permanently at this point) two other cats: an enormous cross between a puma and a chickadee named Skippy (he's like 15lbs, and it's all bone and muscle, but he trills in an octave usually only available to tiny kittens, it's so cute) and an adorable cross between a mouse and a pumpkin named Roxy (...except less vegetal than you'd expect, and she's this special kind of crazy that, unlike Candi, doesn't go straight for my throat at the slightest provocation, and she also has A MILLION TOES).
I have an f/p account, http://www.fictionpress.com/~kohikari , which has emo poetry from early high school, some attempts at non-emo poetry, and a couple 'proper story ideas' that never took off. Eh, what can you do. My ADD, OCD, perfectionism, and cripplingly low self-esteem pretty much guarantee that I'd never finish anything anyway, in fandom or o-fic.
Some old things from like Playwriting class (later on in high school) are up on my dA account, , along with a script idea from my early days of analysing intrafandom statistics that never turned into a comic because (a) I'd've needed to completely revamp the results and script anyway, as I'd overlooked a critical factor in judging pairing popularity rankings (b) I lost interest (c) I couldn't have put the comic up on the internets because I didn't have access to a scanner at the time.
Also there is the blog thing I tried when I was knee-high to a grasshopper (no seriously, I was that short) and still pretty internet-retarded, back in liek '04, , which I called Amethyst because it's my birthstone and also because I suck at titling things (as you may have noticed from my work here).
Oh yeah, and the elljay. has pretty much been my HQ for the past few years. Occasionally I'll do something like investigating obscure song lyrics or conducting fandom surveys or assembling a list of all the Anime Boston AMV Contest winners since 2006 (which is when I started caring about it) or answering "writer's block questions" or the occasional meme.
In the past I have been briefly but enthusiastically active on NationStates (Queendom of Talent), Gaia (Korinohikari with mules Taerra and Chiridena, and later I retried the application process to see all the shiny new options and clothes, they give you CLOTHES now(!!!), with the name Seikawa-Hikaru, and promptly never did anything on that site ever again)(I miss you, +Dial-Up Crisp Sandwich+...the internet is great for making instant buddies with complete strangers from halfway across the globe); I also spent a great deal of time on the Mew Mew Power Uncensored forums ( )(...which has for some reason been registered as an attack site? ;_; ) and made a lot of good friends there, including an internet wife for whom I was betareading before I dropped off the face of the planet...I tend to do that a lot...
(I also have various accounts on various sites sprinkled throughout the internet, which I have largely forgotten because I haven't used them in like four or five years. Or longer. Hey, I have a MySpace. I never actually did anything with it, a friend of mine just wanted me to make one back in 'oh-whenever for the sake of having it. *shrug*)
ITEMISED BIO LIST
Age: I'll be turning twenty-two in February, and am proud of the fact that I no longer look like a twelve-year-old; indeed, now I resemble a sixteen-year-old. How I've grown!
-- Myuu Amaranth/Amaranth are the result of me actually trying to type up one of the little adventure stories I would act out with those little plastic Mobil figures I had when I was a kid (...actually, I still have them, I think), one inspired by Tokyo Mew Mew and of course riddled with like Sueness and self-insertion because I was like fourteen and playing with dolls. I had a lot of fun fleshing out the concept for the medium of fanfiction, but in the end I just wasn't happy with it and it never got very far and I lost interest and so on and so forth. I'm going to try and upload what information I had on how the story ended as a sort of closure for the like three hypothetical people who might still care about it.
I'm gonna be honest, I haven't cleaned out my favorites list since like 2006, before I even really got into Naruto. There's stuff still in there from when I was a wee little n00blet...maybe I should do something about that...
I've been in D.Gray-headspace for the past four years, and I'm showing no signs of stopping anytime soon. I love love love good gen, but have a habit of searching out terrible yaoi and reading it gleefully as a sort of guilty pleasure (although it's much better when the writing's actually good, reading terrible horrible no good very bad fanfiction is just so damn entertaining...). The fans (fen?) have their ship portmanteaux and their ship wars and their pairing weeks, and I cheerfully reap the results of their hard work. Yullen is typical, if tenuous in reality, and then there's the 'hawt' scale and the 'canon/plausible but boring' scale...because yeah, Allenalee is so cute (and MariMira!) but that Yucky stuff is not only hilariously weirdly named but also kinda full of pretty boys, so. Yeah. If I have an OTP it'd be maybe Poker Pair? But probably not, because I ship EVERYONE. Yes, everyone. [/fandom needs moar poly] Because at this point, every single character in D.Gray-man is Allensexual, right down to the boss villain and the talking umbrella and the golden snitch and the Extremely Gay Sweater. Awww yeahhh~ (Of course, I still have to care first...so it's difficult to read a romance fic without working up the investment in the world setting and the story and the characters and their dynamics together...but fortunately I've put a lot of thought into this fandom, so I usually come prepared.)
