Author has written 3 stories for Rurouni Kenshin, Anime X-overs, and Prince of Tennis.
Yo, mabuhay! It's me, Oro Princess. I couldn't think of a nicer name before so I changed it. My Kagome Taisho nickname is my fangirly tribute to my ultimate alternate pairing - Kagome and Sesshoumaru.
Pwede ka rin magsalita sa akin nang ganito kung gusto mo at kung sira rin ang ulo mo kagaya ko.
-: GET FIREFOX :-
Gyah! I'm currently on an LJ hiatus since whenever I'm on LJ, my Photoshop muse kicks into high gear and kills my fanfic muse. Gomen! /sweats/ ... and I've been appropriating my free time to watching the anime I haven't seen yet. heh!
I'm a lazy fanfic reader. I don't read a lot of fanfics if I'm not forcefully linked (clears throat) I mean lovingly pointed at the right direction to them by my friends or if you're not my jye-sama. The reason for that is because I'm highly allergic to spoilers. If you have a question about one of my fanfics, read the author's notes on the first chapter first because I will inform you about what the timeline or the coverage of the fanfic is. If you want me to read a/your fanfic, you could always drop me a line or leave me the link to it. That would be much appreciated. 8) If you're asking me for recommendations, check out the stories on my favorites list. I don't get out in fandoms much (I have too many to keep track of and have no time or desire to keep myself updated), but I guarantee you that all the stories on my favorites list are quality fanfics.
I try not to read any fanfics until I finish the entire series. Also, not going around reading stuff makes me feel better and makes me feel unique since I delude myself into thinking that whatever theme/plot I use is purely 100 percent my idea because I haven't seen it anywhere else... (points at self and laughs) Except if I ripped it off from a movie/tv/media/anime/book of course... I do credit when I remember. I know what "plagiarism" means as well as the meaning of the word "malign". I have manners and practice proper etiquette, my head isn't stuck inside my arse and I don't think that I own ©e®tain words™ that are actually very common da ne. (insert rolling of eyeballs here at the massive egos some people have on the intrawebs) ¬¬
I have three chibi muses. Chibi Deidara, chibi Fuji and chibi Byakuya. Chibi Bya-chan's the boss chibi muse... but he's really lazy. Dei-chan's new... he replaced chibi Ryoma. RIP Ryo-chan. Chibi Fuji likes to pet the plot puppies a lot. They accept constructive criticism, suggestions, pointers and death threats from friends and pretty people. But only from friends and pretty people. Ugly old hags and cynical people who have too much time on their hands and too big of a head because their egos are larger than the size of Texas need to go take a hike in the road called Get A Life. If you're not one of those people, then I like you already.
I get over stuff easy as long as the offending person apologizes and means it. I'd like to think that I'm a friendly person. I think my friends would agree on that, but they would also agree on the fact that I can be nasty when someone snarks at me first. I don't take a lot of things seriously in life or online, but beware when I do for I will snark the heck out of you. I'm nice, honestly, just try not to get on my bad side by picking on me or any of my friends. Just because I like fluffy pink shiny sparkly stuff doesn't mean that I'm a pushover. I don't like people who find it fun to put down others. Abrasive behavior is a sign of self-doubt and insecurity. If you have to put others down to make yourself feel better, then I pity you as a human being. I don't get along well with people who have massive egos and think that the world revolves around them, people who are angry at the world, morons or elitists. I love taking shots at people who take themselves or fandom too seriously. I blame Canada. Wait, I mean I blame it on Southpark. ¬¬
I tend to go back to the fics that my favorite writers have written. I read mostly KagSess stuff or Kagome-related fanfics because I'm obsessed with the girl. (Wow, if it wasn't already obvious from my nickname, huh? 8P) So if you're wondering if I've read your story, link me to it and I'll read it, yakusoku! I'm a crossover freak. I love Kingdom Hearts and my favorite crossovers are anything with Kagome in them. I also love anything time travel and alternate dimensions... Maybe that's why I took to Noein at around episode 2. Noein rocks. The drawing isn't Tsubasa or Ouran standard, but the plot is awesome. It sneaks up on you and bam! Blood + is awesome, too. It scared me in the beginning because I have a strong aversion to blood and gore, but the plot sucked me right in. If you love Inuyasha, Tactics might also be of interest to you. If you're into Furuba-type prettiness, you could try Saiunkoku Monogatari (Tale of Saiunkoku). Lots of prettyful bishies all around. If you like crack, I would highly recommend Ouran Highschool Host Club, School Rumble (Duwah! Duwah! XD) and Yakitate‼ Japan. Some of my most favorite anime episodes are Naruto 101ttebayo & TeniPuri 64 da ne. BEST crack EVAR... okay so they're second only to Ouran Koukou (but most especially School Rumble) now, but Noein and Blood + to me rank equal to that of Full Metal Alchemist. Maybe even higher.
Waaah... okay, if I were to rate the 6 best animes I've seen so far, it would be in this order:
1. Blood+ - I recently found out it's the continuation to Blood: The Last Vampire. /sweats/ I saw the series first and had no idea there was a movie. It's more refined than the movie though. As I type this, it's only up to episode 38 and I don't think it's going to end happily ever after but hey, it's still effing awesome. It's about vampires. It has a Buffy/Blade feel to it. Both Buffy and Blade... the Sif remind me of Org XIII, lol. If you watch it, you'll understand why. "Nankurunaisa"
2. Noein - It's about alternate dimensions. The quantum physics talk throw me off but it's addicting. It's fun to speculate what's what, who's who and stuff like that. The drawing is funny and it might confuse you in the beginning, but I tend to love things that tie together at the end where I say "Oh my gulay, so THAT'S why!" I've seen it straight through at least ten times already. Heh. The ending made me cry (I'm a sap) both in sadness and joy. Noein should collaborate with Atobe and perfect that Rondo Towards Destruction technique... ack! Dude, your Layze particles just poked me in the eye!
3. Full Metal Alchemist - I tend to intensely dislike things that don't end happily ever after, but FMA rocks, man. I laughed, I cried, I speculated... I literally sat there and said "woah!" when it ended. I didn't love the movie, but the OVAs gave me closure. Heh, especially the chibi OVA. XD All the time I was watching it, I kept thinking "Dudes, it's in Hogwarts. Go see Nicholas Flammel." XD
4. School Rumble - Summary: Thug loves cute girl who loves weird boy who loves curry. Puns and parodies galore. It's nothing but pure unadulterated crack. I literally have to pause an episode just so I could laugh my heart out and then be able to watch the next scenes at times. The tears streaming from my eyes while I'm pounding on my leg get in the way. The second semester is even funnier than the first. Waaaar! XD O.M.G. Now excuse me while I go laugh myself to death. XD Seriously. XD Lolercopter to the max.
5. Ouran Highschool Host Club - Hyōtei on crack. It's a refined kind of crack. I noticed how this anime basically exploded online. You must live under a rock in a deserted island to not have seen/heard of this anime yet. The drawing is great and it's really funny. It gives me a light fluffy feeling afterwards and I love it. When you need a picker-upper, you should watch this anime.
6. Yakitate‼ Japan - When I saw the first episode, I was like "wtf on toast? o_O" but then I still watched it because I already had the other episodes. XD Good thing I did! The puns are freakin' hilarious. I think that the very main reason why this is on my top 6 list is because it ends happily ever after. It was funny the whole time and it made me happy + it ended happily ever after. How can I not put it on my top 6?
... aaah! That was really hard! I love lots of other animes, too... it was really hard to choose only the top 6 out of all of them. Oh yeah, just to give you an idea how awesome these animes are to make it into my top 6, here is a list of
the Fandoms I could remember so far and my favorite characters in them:
Public service announcement since some people go around thinking they're Kami's gift to fanfiction - a Mary Sue is a creation of the fanfic author's mind, an ORIGINAL CHARACTER made by the fanfiction author, that is disgustingly or almost perfect because it more or less represents her alter-ego. Her flaws, if she has any, are romanticized like depression, eating disorders or other psychological conditions. (Taken from Wiki) In other words, it's pretty much a sugar-coated self-insert. The male version is called Harry Stu. A CANON character, therefore, cannot be considered a Mary Sue, because all canon characters were created by whoever thought of the series i.e. J.K. Rowling for everything Harry Potter and George Lucas for everything Star Wars. If you feel like a canon character is acting so out of character because she suddenly gains an instant bloodlimit plus elemental demon powers on top of being a psychic elf and you want to give the author "constructive criticism" (yeah right), then use the right term. Call them "Canon Sues", not "Mary Sues". Remember to get it right before you snark or else you'll look like a bitter old hag da ne! Kagome Taisho ≠ Kagome Higurashi unless you're a fat hag from Jersey. Kagome Higurashi is not my creation, she's property of Rumiko Takahashi. ¬¬
You're = contraction of "You are" (ex: You're stupid, You're a negative person, You're lame)
Your = someone's; a person's; is the possessive form of you (ex: Your flame is stupid, Your lame review, Your big ego)
It's = short for "It is" (ex: It's not very constructive at all)
Its = possessive form of it (ex: The school cancelled its classes)
Through = in one side and out the other (ex: She went through that door)
Threw = past tense of throw (ex: She threw it at him)
They're = contraction of "They are" (ex: They're all stupid)
Their = possessive form of they (ex: Their stupid brains)
We're = We are (ex: We're leaving)
Were = past subjunctive of be (ex: We were laughing at you)
Where = place (ex: Where are you going?)
Whether = used to introduce alternative possibilities (ex: Whether you realize it or not, you're a moron)
Weather = refers to atmospheric conditions (ex: How's the weather down there?)
Loose = not fastened or restrained (ex: Your brain has loose screws)
Lose = unsuccessful / fail to win (ex: I win, you lose.)
a lot = many (ex: There are a lot of whiners here. A lot of blame was placed on him.)
allot = to distribute / to allocate (ex: Alloting constructive criticism / Allot blame)
Definitely has no "a" in it. Grammar has two.
Effect = a result; something brought about by a cause
Affect = to have influence on or effect a change in
"I" before "e" except after "c", but not if it's "weird" or when it sounds like an "a" as in "neighbor" and "weigh" - spell words like beige, conscience, deify, deity, deign, feign, feint, feisty, foreign, forfeit, freight, heifer, heigh-ho, height, heinous, heist, neigh, neither, science, seismic, seize, sheik, society, sovereign, veil, vein or weight the right way before you think of criticizing othersI write for my own amusement, I'm not aiming to be published. My only beta is Microsoft Word and I try my best whenever I write a fanfic. I think the same goes for most people who post their fanfics online. I'm not a grammar/spelling Nazi because I make mistakes as well - all the languages in my head get all mixed up and I tend to babble a lot (really, I'm not, stop looking at me like that! O_O) - but I think that fanfics should have correct spelling despite how l337 your English is. If you can't even spell 'weird' right or tell the difference between 'loose' and 'lose' then you have no right to criticize anybody. For example - If you want to go around accusing people of being a 'dumbass' just because they didn't spell 'Van' with an 'a' and spelled it with an 'o' instead, maybe you should see if you spelled 'summary', 'consists' and 'create' right first. Especially if you spelled Aerith's name wrong, lol! Look in the mirror first. I can't understand why some people would choose to wank/flame/put down other people's work for fun. It makes me sad when I see a good fic discontinued because of bitter flamers/wankers.
I hate Mary Sues and self-inserts with a passion. Not all original characters are Mary Sues even if all Mary Sues are original characters. I'm not a big fan of original characters either, but there are lots of exceptions to this, like a new baby of one of the characters or really well-written ones that support the story. I've fallen in love with lots of original characters that aren't Mary Sues or self-inserts, but let me just say that "Last of the (insert clan's name here)" means that they're the last of their clan, so new characters who are long-lost sisters of Sasuke make me o.O
Out of Character characters are different from Mary Sues and self-inserts. Just because a character is acting out of character doesn't mean that she's a Mary Sue, le duh. I don't really mind OOC-ness, since I'm not a in-character nazi. Characters grow. They develop and mature with age. Sakura Kinomoto went from a scaredy cat to a true Cardcaptor in the span of the entire Cardcaptor Sakura series. Kagome Higurashi also learned to take responsibility and grew more mature than the person who didn't care one bit about the shikon no tama in the beginning. People change, characters mature. Who are we to say that a character cannot mature or change and must adhere to canon 100,938,348.000008 percent of the time? There's a reason why it's called a "fanfic" you know. If you want strictly canon writing, perhaps you should try re-watching or re-reading the original work again and stay away from fanfiction desu. How can you "unleash your imagination and free your soul" if you can't even think outside the box?
I also find myself intensely disliking people who think that young people who review or write don't count towards quality fanfiction. I don't like people bullying other people just because of their age or amount of time on a certain fandom. There are fanfics out there written by 20-30+ year olds that are more atrocious than those made by 13-16 year olds and there are 20-30+ year olds out there who couldn't even tell the difference between plural forms and 's. (Didn't we all learn about those back in third grade or something? O.o) So please, stop judging a fanfic author by their age or by how long they've been in a fandom because those things really don't matter. There is no point in acting all high and mighty on the internet just because you're inadequate in real life.
SOME of the strongest ships I sail on:
Shiro/Yachiru (Yes, I've been told that I lack sleep from shipping this)
Naruto/Hinata (otherwise known as Goku and Chichi)
Tsunade x Jiraiya
Sakura x anyone in Akatsuki (even Tobi XD)
R x 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 6 / 13
Sakura-hime x Syaoran x Fay x Kurogane
Harry x Hermione x Draco
Ron x Luna
Neville x Ginny
Bulma x Vegeta (Sakura & Sasuke's future)
Trunks x Pan
Gohan x Bra
Fuu x Jin
Gambit x Rogue
Jean x Scott
Clark x Lana
Lana x Lex
Buffy x Spike
Tidus/Yuna (ZOMG I'm so canon!)
Sephiroth/Aerith/Cloud ("But she dies! How can you ship them when she's dead?" She's alive in KH, that's enough for me. Death is only the beginning yadda yadda and all that jazz. "But KH is not canon in the FF universe." KH is still canon. Maybe not in the FF universe, but it's canon in the Squenix universe which literally owns the FF universe. Squenix owns FF so they can do whatever they want with it, even bring back people from the dead. Not that I'm complaining because I absolutely love what they did. "But he's in love with Tifa." Errr... others may see Tifa's chasing him around as love, but I don't really see it like the Heero-Relena chasing around. I see it as Cloud having a protective big brother love. If he really loved her, how come she's not his "home"? How come she's not his "light"? And if he doesn't love Aerith, how come he sold his soul to Hades just to find her? Let me also remind you that we're dealing with a Final Fantasy here. One of the lovebirds always dies or fades away, if you don't count sequels.)
Leon x Aerith (because Leon's face when Aerith challenged him about being able to take care of herself ALONE while he fought outside the control center was PRICELESS. He got pwned by the flower girl.)
Gippal/Rikku/Baralai (Because I can't decide between a hot Al Bhed and a hot Praetor)
Van x Hitomi
Kazuma x Shigeru (squee!)
Robin x Starfire
Yuuri x Konrad
Yuuri x Ken
Anissina x Gwendal (because this pair is the funniest in the entire history of anime)
Ryoma x Sakuno as well as Sakuno x every single Seigaku regular and even the other teams
Sakuno x Akaya (ever since I first saw him on episode 49)
Sakuno x Ryoga
Sakuno x Yukimura
Sakuno x Tezuka
Sakuno x Fuji
Sakuno x Yuuta
Sakuno x Atobe (PoT's Haruhi x Tamaki)
Kamio x Tomoka
Momo x Ann (sometimes I fear I'm so canon)
Yuki x Tohru... but almost everyone on Furuba x Tohru works, too. Even Akito x Tohru
Kisa x Haru
Kisa x Hiro
Kisa x Momiji
Rio/Eyes (Get her some melon or else!)
Haruhi x everyone on the Host Club, especially the twins (Hikaru over Kaoru) or Kyouya
Shuurei x Seiran/Ryuuki/Shuuei/Kouyuu/Ryuuren
Haji x Saya x Solomon (Blood+ OT3. Saya and Solomon could breed and Haji could help them take care of the little suckers.)
Kai x Saya ("Taisetsu na kazoku"? Psh. Kai's in denial. I think what he wanted to say was taisetsu no hito. Mwahahaha!)
Yuu x Haruka x Karasu (Technically... there are just two people... so...)
Flonne x Laharl (Dude, it's a real live angel + demon pairing. How can I NOT ship it? o_O)
Hake x Youko
Kio x Megumi
Zatch x Tia
Haruka x Kantarou (Kan-chan is an obsessed fanboy)
Kaname x Sousuke (FMP's Heero with Kenshin's scar & a Relena wielding a paper fan)
Kaname x Leonardo (Whispered + Whispered = TL?)
Ryuhou x Mimori (She's his sanctuary -insert KH2 song here-)
Mimori x Tachibana (I'm not very fond of Cammy.)
Kanami x Kazuma (because he raised himself his own bride. XD)
Masataka x Aya (Romeo & Juliet... lol poor Masataka XD But I really do prefer him over Souichiro.)
Maya x Mitsuomi (I don't like Maya. I think she's the most selfish anime character ever created even if the series tries to make the characters convince you that she's not by trying to justify what happened in the past. I think she needs to be with either Mitsuomi or Shin to make up for everything she's done - or didn't do.)
Maya x Shin (whistles innocently and tries to distract you by pointing out that Shin kinda looks like an anime Sephiroth complete with a Masamune... errr.. I mean a Chokutou Reiki)
Shin x Aya (Did I mention the long, flowing white silky hair? And uh... the psychotic rage?)
Mitsuomi x Aya (poor ickle brother but onii-sama is way hotter)
Hikaru x Akira (because SasuNaru so very very pales in comparison to this)
Tenma x Ooji (I'm still LMFAO at the kappa!)
Tenma x Harry (because they'd look super cute together!)
Tenma x Nara (He needs more screentime... and not when he's inside a costume! XD)
Mikoto x Eri
Yakumo x Eri (I love yuri pairings for Eri. I'd rather ship her with another girl than a guy.)
Mikoto x Hanai
Mikoto x Asou
Mikoto x Banana-kun... er... I mean... Imadori!
Basically, I'm a ship hor. I can ship pretty much anyone with everyone - yaoi, het, yuri, incest, crossovers or crack (cactuar + chocobo, anyone? they can have a threesome with moogle-chan). Dude, I could even ship Naruto x Tsunade (and I don't know if anyone else does), but I just can't stand some pairings for some reason. The only ships I can't stand to sail on are:
Rukia x anyone who isn't Renji
Sakura x Naruto (but I can ship her with every other guy in the series)
Kira x anyone who isn't Lacus or Cagalli
Meyrin x Athrun (kadiri!)
Sesshoumaru x anyone who isn't Kagome
Harry x Ginny (mas kadiri!)
Cloud x Tifa (sobrang kadiri!)
Sousuke x Tessa (Because I would rather eat a bucket of live cockroaches topped with fresh cow manure. Why? Aside from FMP 13 which literally made me gag and fast forward it so much that I don't know the details of what the heck happened, please see FMP 2nd Raid Episode 8 at around 6 minutes into it. Boo frickin' hoo, arg, ugh and fweh at that effing tama san ba! Gusto ko siyang patayin at lukutin yo.)
Yuna x anyone who isn't Tidus / Tidus x anyone who isn't Yuna
Ryuhou x Shireece (pinaka-kadiri!)
Samatarou x Tenko (She annoys the fugg out of me.)
... I don't know why, I have no definite reason why these ships make my skin crawl. Okay so sometimes I do (and have more than one or is too long to write here), sometimes I don't but what I know for certain is that the thought of these ships make me want to barf. It's just natural, like how I don't like worms and get freaked out by spiders. I don't mean to offend anyone, it's just the truth. I can even swallow Miaka x Tamahome or if you must, Tohru x Kyou, but I just can't swallow these ships for some reason.
