Author has written 11 stories for Hunter X Hunter, Code Breaker, Ouran High School Host Club, Honey and Clover, Yotsuba&!/よつばと！, and Arakawa Under the Bridge/荒川アンダー ザ ブリッジ.
Right so recently, I've been reviewing stories a lot more, and I realized that... I can't get over that sick feeling in my stomach when I see or try to read stories containing certain shounen ai pairings. Well the ones from CLAMP aren't really a problem, maybe because it has already been hinted at so obviously in the manga. But I can't say the same for the other series. Crazy as this may sound, I'm still trying to overcome my trauma after reading a yaoi fan fiction unprepared many years ago. So my point here is that it's a great regret to see but not read or review such well written bl stories. I apologize if it seems that I'm not reviewing some stories on purpose, it's really nothing personal.
That being said, I try my best to review every story I read because I understand that a review can brighten up the author's day by a mega lambert/ photon or two. (The last part was just me being lame :D haha)
I mainly sleep, watch anime and read during my free time. Writing stories is something I picked up only recently so plot and grammar don't come easily to me. Hopefully I will be able to improve with time.
Other than manga, I also love reading high/ epic/ heroic fantasy books where the story takes place in an invented world and the protagonist wields a sword and uses magic. Dragons are a bonus :)
I was introduced to Hunter X Hunter 6 years ago and it has been my favourite manga ever since, nothing else comes close. And despite my profile picture, Shalnark is the character I adore the most; it was love at first sight.
Spotted this in many of the Ouran authors' profiles, so I decided to do one for HxH using the same questions. The questions are slightly incompatible but oh well..
Pick 10 characters from an anime and answer the questions below. You can pick any characters you like, both boys and girls!
1 woke you up in the middle of the night?
Give Shal-dear a hug and go back to sleep. I don't dare to think about what else he wants ;_;
Number 2 asked you to go out with him?
Seeing that No. 2 is Gon, his idea of going out should be along the lines of getting dinner/ grocery shopping at the market. So I'd make sure I bring along money for the 'date'
Number 3 walked into the bathroom while you're showering?
This is no time to be fan-girly! Killua couldn't have done that accidentally so I will kick him where it hurts if he continues to stare.
4 announced he's going to marry 9 tomorrow?
Kurapika, this isn't the only way to show your... er.. masculinity you know..
5 cooked you dinner?
Aww thanks Leorio! I'm sure the food taste a lot better than they look. -fakes a stomach ache and runs off-
6 was lying next to you on the beach, sleeping?
Danchou! =D -tries to bury him in the sand without waking him up-
7 suddenly confessed to be part of your family?
Hisoka: I... am your father hee hee hee~
Me: -inches away slowly-
8 got into the hospital somehow?
For plastic surgery?
9 made fun of your friends?
Best to stay quiet if I value my life X_X
10 ignored you all the time?
FINE! I'll get Hisoka to ignore you too! =(
Two serial killers are hunting you down. What will 1 do?
Crush them like ants and then rescue and greet me with a passionate kiss XD
You're on a vacation with number 2 and manage to break your leg. What does 2 do?
Make a healing herb from the plants around and insist on carrying me to to a doctor
It's your birthday. What will 3 give you?
A complete set of his outfit so that I can go cosplaying in it
You're stuck in a house that's on fire. What does 4 do?
Gaze at the fire and become lost in thoughts regarding his revenge for the Kurata clan, all the while ignoring my cries for help ;_;
You're about to do something that'll make you feel extremely embarrassed. What will 5 do?
Leorio will start clashing pots together to attract attention of the people around and collect money after from the audience after I complete the embarrassing task -_-
You're about to marry number 10. What's 6's reaction?
Kyaaaaa XD Killua's gonna become my brother-in-law but wasn't Illumi supposed to be ignoring me? I guess Kuroro will be pretty indifferent to the marriage of two strangers.
You got dumped by someone. How will 7 cheer you up?
Perform his card tricks where all the cards ultimately end up embedded in the person who dumped me.
You're angry about it afterwards, how does 8 calm you down?
Rant about her lack of suitors due to her eccentric ways
You compete in some tournament. How does 9 support you?
Palm will threaten opponents using all her knives and engulf them in murderous nen XD
You can't stop laughing. What will 10 do?
Nothing, except kill me if my laughter becomes too annoying.
Number 1 is all you've ever dreamed of. Why?
Why?! There is no reason for loving someone! Shalnark is awesome in all aspects
2 tells you about his deeply hidden love for number 9. Your reaction?
Gon's hidden love for Palm. Why, isn't that just perfect! =DD
You're dating number 3 and introduce him to your parents. Will they get along?
Guess so, though mum would probably make Killua dye his hair black
Number 4 loves number 9 as well. What does that mean?
It means that Palm will have to choose between Kurapika and Gon. I'd go for Gon :D
Will number 5 and 6 ever kiss?
And here I was thinking that the kuraXpalm pairing was weird. They might, given how Togashi likes to mess with our minds, but I certainly hope not.
6 appears to be a player, he/she breaks many hearts. What do you do?
Hmm it seems possible that Kuroro's a Casanova. I will try my best to educate him on the dangers of casual sex ._.
You had a haircut and 7 can't stop looking at you. What goes on in your mind?
In my mind: Danger, danger, danger, get a wig asap!!!!
Number 8 thinks he'll/she'll never get a girlfriend/boyfriend. What will you tell him/her?
Me: Ya know, I think you'd look good with Ubogin from Genai Ryodan
Biscuit: Really?! Is he hawt? 8D
Me: Ehh... Oh wait, I forgot that he's already dead! -comforts Biscuit as she sinks into depression-
Number 9 gives you a bagel. Do you eat it?
Best to eat whatever Palm offers me, never mind the poison/ hair strands in the food.
10 wants money and decides to get a job at Chuck E' Cheeses. How long does he stay?
Let me get this straight first, Illumi wants money so he's going to work at a fast food restaurant O_o
1 offers you a CD. Considering his tastes, do you listen to it?
2 suddenly goes emo. How does 8 feel about this?
Biscuit will be concerned and try to cheer Gon up by showing his pictures of hot guys or half naked photos of Killua taken on the sly.
3 told 6 she started her period.
Gender issues aside, why on earth would Killua tell Kuroro that?
Killua: Kuroro Lucifer. I've finally come face to face with you after so long.
-Kuroro prepares to use skill hunter-
Killua: My period finally came this morning X_X -squats down due to terrible cramps-
4 slaps 9 with a fish for going out with 7.
Hisoka's charm must have gotten to Palm.. This is terrible. Palm won't react well to being slapped with a fish.
5 cusses 2 out in German. 3 is secretly watching from behind a bush. What does he do?
Leorio knows German? I doubt Gon would understand anyway, and why is Killua spying from behind a bush X_X Killua would probably knock the older man unconscious if he tried to get physical.
6 got high.
Kuroro would start reading the contents of Skill Hunter out loud and make fun of the photos of the original nen users
7 Comes up to you wearing a big pink dress. What's your reaction?
Take as many pictures as I dare and then run for my life.
8 reads your fanfictions and complains. What is it about?
Not enough shounen ai and yaoi stories (btw, I don't write for those genres)
9 can't stand 1, so how does he get his revenge when he spills Soda all over him?
Palm can't stand my darling Shalnark? T_T Palm would chase after Shalnark in her knife outfit. Shalnark would never spill soda all over a girl anyway!
10 starts working at a bar.
Money is out of the question. Perhaps it's some kind of preparation for an assassination?
1 comes in and tells you she's pregnant from 2.
NOT POSSIBLE. Gon should be the uke and Shalnark the seme, so even if there's pregnancy, Gon should be the one carrying the child!
Number 3 decides to go swimming. Do you go with him?
I guess so, hehehe...
4 and 7 compete on DDR. Who wins?
Tough choice.. But I'd say Kurapika because Hisoka is likely to start inventing his own dance moves a few seconds into the dance.
5 is having a birthday party and he picks a theme. What is it?
Medicine? Or a Kurapika theme ;)
6 and 1 have a deep conversation. What is it most likely about?
Kuroro: Shalnark, I need you to check the exact location and goods for the up coming auction. See if there's anything worth taking.
Shalnark: No problem, Danchou. Regarding the previous items we took from the world treasure exhibition, I'm quite concerned about the storage conditions of the thousand-year-mummy's nail. It has to be kept in a airy area with humidity not exceeding 13.7%.
Kuroro: Just sell it if we are unable to keep it in perfect condition.
Shalnark: Yes sir, I'll pass you the grouping plans for our next mission by noon.
7 stalks 9 home. 10 sees this. What does she do?
Illumi sees Hisoka stalking Palm home. Why, he would do nothing about it. Hisoka does that a lot.
8 buys a computer. What is the first thing he does on it?
Biscuit: google 'hot naked men' or read hardcore yaoi stories.
