Author has written 5 stories for Harry Potter, Fruits Basket, and Supernatural.
Appearance: Let's see... I have green eyes, brown hair, and I'm about 5'3. What did you say? That's your description of a perfect woman? Ah, you flatter me so!
I like reading about other peoples' favourite pairings on their profiles, and I actually think you can tell a lot about a person based on who they like to pair together! So~ here are some of mine _
Sam/Dean -- (Supernatural)
Fred/George -- (Harry Potter)
Kakashi/Iruka -- (Naruto)
Hatsuharu(Haru)/Kyo -- (Fruits Basket)
Seiishiro/Subaru -- (X/1999)
Tatsumi/Tsuzuki -- (Yami No Matsuei)
My favourites are in bold >_>
Oh, and yes, they are in order of Seme/Uke, or Dominant/Submissive, whatever you want to call it.
I hate when people don't specify this! I know to a lot of people it doesn't matter, or in some cases there is no specific seme or uke as per the author's choice, but it matters to me! Some people may think it shallow, but I don't really care. I also realise some people write their pairings Uke/Seme instead, but I know a lot of people out there are doing neither, and just writing the pairing however it's most heard. For example; SasuNaru. If it's NaruSasu, please say so! Or if you write it Uke/Seme, again, please let us know!
Some people may think I'm being over the top about this, but I hate reading a really good fic only to find that, in my mind, it's the wrong way round! I'm sure there are other people out there who find that situation equally traumatising? The 'No... no... NO! WHY?' reaction. Obviously, everyone has different preferences, but if they could maybe state them in the author's note before the fic starts, that would be so very kind!
Now, onto some spelling and grammar pet peeves of mine...
1. Definitely. Defiantly. These are two different words with completely different meanings. I can understand mixing them up if you have an Autocorrect command on, correcting your spelling for you as you go along, as the two words are similar. However, sometimes I really have to wonder if people think that 'defiantly' is actually how you spell 'definitely', as they use it so often it's hard to see it as a mistake anymore.
2. Slightly. Sometimes 'slightly' comes after the verb. 'Slightly wondering if he should go with them.' I honestly feel as though I hardly ever see this word used after the verb, and maybe it's just me, but I would always 'Wonder slightly', rather then 'Slightly wonder'.
3. Weary. Wary. Same as definitely and defiantly.
4. 'Anything but' This expression seems to get a bit confused a lot of the time, for example;
'He felt anything but love for this man.'
When actually the author meant to say:
'He felt nothing but love for this man.'
It makes it confusing when they get mixed up, the reader knows what the author meant to say from the context, but it's distracting.
I'll add more as and when I remember - or discover - them.
Also, I know my own writing is far from perfect - especially my oldest fics - I make a lot of stupid mistakes with grammar and spellings too (although I really try my hardest not to), so no offence meant.
1) Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, mp3 players, cars, and air conditioning.
2) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.
3) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behaviour. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.
4) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.
5) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Brittany Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.
6) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.
7) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.
8) Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have only one religion in America.
9) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.
10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans...
Re-post this if you believe in legalizing gay marriage
