This thing I call an autobiography needs to be updated more, but here goes: I'm a freshman at Brandeis University (Computer science and linguistics major); graduated salutatorian from J. Frank Dobie HS in Houston. First language was Vietnamese. I've had previous study of French and am currently learning Arabic. I didand . My interests and background make my work tend towards having loads and loads of characters and more character-focused stories than story for the sake of story. Unfortunately (or fortunately, YMMV), a lot of my stories tend towards including the hard sciences and jokes related to those topics.
I have the same username on both TV Tropes and Something Awful, so find me if you want!

I have a slightly defunct website now called. Check it out, although its heydays have long passed with the passing of LU... :( [And now the host has shut down, although if you poke around the Internet, the forums still exist] I used to be known as Cali-Bunny, so fellow LUOers might recall me.
I'm not into pairings and romance. If I did have to pick pairings from my current favorite works, I'd choose all of the canon FMA ones (especially Royai) and NejiTen from Naruto. I really don't care otherwise. I write primarily adventure and science fantasy, with some Pratchett-style (with footnotes!) humor. Those are also the fandoms and things I tend to focus on as well, judging by the looks of those lists.
My favorite of the above have to be Discworld, Fullmetal Alchemist, and One Piece.
So I scrapped all of my old stories. That's everything from old Cyberchase fics to a pretty-decent Loonatics fic to a Naruto fic I was working on. I just feel like starting over. My new project will probably be a One Piece story.
