Author has written 19 stories for Pokémon, Inuyasha, and One Piece.
STANDARD DISCLAIMER for ALL of my fanworks: I do not own any of the characters in any fanfiction I write, nor their descriptions or original universes unless I state otherwise. ONE PIECE and its characters are owned by EIICHIRO ODA. INUYASHA and its characters are owned by RUMIKO TAKAHASHI. The POKEMON is owned by SATOSHI TAJIRI. I am making no profit off anything I post on this site. This disclaimer is for each and every fic i write. it is all that is legally required and i don't like wasting space by putting disclaimers on each story.
Name: Teresa Starr, 28 years old
Occupation: I'm a novelist. Going back to school a second Masters because I love college too much to leave it yet. Fanfiction is often my chance to play with the ideas that don't make it into my original novels.
MAJOR: I have 3 Bachelors Degrees in English, Psychology, and Japanese. Plus a Masters in creative writing.
The writing habits that I can't seem to shake: Regarding OOCness: I do my best, but if you can't see a character doing something that I write in your mind, that's okay. Just do your best. Fanfiction is just that, fiction that is based off of another fiction. It's never gonna be perfect, but I'll try.
I also tend to overdo drama. I have a habit of torturing my favorite characters. Something about seeing the strongest character taken down intrigues me because I wonder how that character would handle being kept down for too long. I love bringing intense angst/pain upon my favorite characters.
I really want to learn all I can from every chapter I write. I honestly want to know how I'm doing, and if I don't get that valuable feedback and honest opinions, then I feel it's a waste of time to post the story. I'm not scrambling for reviews just to have a big number and make it seem like my story is the best around or anything so concieted. I want them to learn from them. That's all. :) And I rate most things at least PG-13 just to be safe so I won't get kicked off, even if they're harmless.
FANART: I'll post these links according to story, and you can see them anytime you like.
-- The others are by Bunny Franz and they are very cute color drawings of Luffy and Zoro together while Zoro’s asleep, but they're not online. You can email me for them, though! I don't mind sending them at all.
If anyone else happens to want to make some fanart of my fics, please go ahead and send them to me, or send a link to where they can be found, and I'll post the link and/or the info on them here for other fans to see.
Future/Current Plans for One Piece fics: (Not necessarily in order, but The Last Nakama is underway)
The Last Nakama - AU. ZoLu. Rated T. Comedy, Drama, Sci-fi. In a future world where computers advanced enough to walk beside their owners like emotionless people, Luffy is the only remaining "Nakama" (an experimental persocom model built for one-on-one companionship with its owner) in existence. Do to them having higher ammounts of AI than reccomended, the rest were recalled decades ago for being unstable and unpredictable. Shanks -who worked for the company that developed them- developed Luffy in secret to be his son, and gave him more AI than should ever be allowed. Right before he died, Shanks turned Luffy off without warning, and stored him away in secret. Twenty years later, Zoro (who's not into computers) moves into his old place and turns Luffy back on again. This makes Luffy his. The major problem: They don't want each other.
(I have NOT seen Chobits, and this is NOT based on that at all. The three robot laws are according to the standard robot rules used in fiction)
The Key to Raftel - AU. ZoLu. (may be a LuNa instead). Rated 'T' Comedy, Parody, Epic. In a maritime world plagued by war among the different races, and under the watchful eyes of the evil marines, nine companions set out to Raftel -the island of secrets- where the Pirate King was said to have hidden all of the crowns of power. They are led by the keeper of the Master Crown (which was hidden in the form of a Straw Hat), Monkey D. Luffy of East Blue. The world is doomed. A combined Parody of The Lord of the Rings and One Piece.
The Perfect Con - AU. ZoLu. Rated 'M'. Suspense, Comedy, Romance. They set 'em up and knock 'em down. These six have found their unexplainable calling in the most risky business of all: Con artistry. They don't seem like the type to do it, but that's what makes them perfect. Though they're not too good at acting, their disguises are a joke, and they often experience the pleasure of forgetting their own aliases, these young people have a miraculous way of coming out of every situation rolling in dough. But now a once in a lifetime chance has Nami setting their target above the gullible masses of middle-class people. Conning a mob-like terrorist unit is risky, it's deadly, it leaves no room for error. And if it works, they'll never have to work a job again.

Getting an original novel to my publisher on time is being focused on in addition to the fanfiction right now, and because that one will pay me, I have to make it priority to get it finished. So there may be weeks here and there where I miss a posting, but HH will be finished before too long, so don't fret. It's already over half-way done.
The only fandom I'm currently writing for is One Piece:
Homecoming Hill - Chapter 24 POSTED.
-- Chapter 26 - 45 percent done.
RUMBLE! 2: Orbis Run - Chapter 1 POSTED This is getting serious work done on it right now, a lot had to be fixed up as I perfected the plot out a long ways, but it's promising now, and fun to write again! Hoping you'll see it this or next week. I'm in a relationship that keeps me away a lot, but I miss writing a lot right now, and want to do it again badly.
Chapter 2/3 (it's really one LONG chapter, just rewritten) - 80 percent done
RUMBLE! - COMPLETE
Coral Reef - COMPLETE.
At some point lemons were made legal on the site again, so I've gone through each story and restored any and all work that has been edited for content to its original sexy form. This includes Foolproof, RUMBLE! chapter 28, and the widely-sought Coral Reef lemon.
