Author has written 42 stories for Ninja Turtles, Fruits Basket, Gundam Wing/AC, Bleach, Yu-Gi-Oh, Inuyasha, Sailor Moon, Transformers/Beast Wars, and Young Justice.
Before I start talking about myself, I want you guys to know if I don't review your story, it's not because I didn't enjoy it. It's because I have way too may favorites saved on my page already. So that means if I end up saving you as a favorite author, that means I like your stories. If you want to browse through my stories, you'll see that I bounce around fandoms a lot. Right now, I'm into Young Justice and Batman. I've done pretty well in the Young Justice arena but the one time I tried to do a Batman story... Well let's just say that story wasn't well received. Not because I didn't try to write a good story but mainly because I was an unknown author in the Batman category. I kinda thought maybe no one read and/or reviewed it because they didn't know me as an author and because maybe my idea wasn't original enough. Maybe one day I'll get around to trying my hand at a Batman story again, but right now I'm just going to stick to the Young Justice fandom.
Batman: Batman/Catwoman & Nightwing/Oracle
For Batman, I have always loved the Bat/Cat pairing. To this day, I have to explain why I like them so much but I think she fits Bruce better. That's not to say I don't think he could work out with someone else. I actually do like him with Zatanna but I know the comics tried that route and it didn't work. They remained as very close friends but I think Zatanna would have been good for him too. I'm just horribly biased when it comes to the Bat/Cat pairing. Same goes for Nightwing/Oracle. I'm aware that he dated Starfire and they even had a child together in one of the comics. While I prefer him to be with Oracle, I love Star too. I really don't mind him being paired with Starfire but my heart is just too stuck on Nightwing/Oracle.
Gundam Wing: Duo/Hilde & Heero/Relena
Where do I even begin? You guys have no idea how much time and energy I devoted to this series. It's still one of my favorite Gundam titles. I know all about Frozen Teardrop (which should have never seen the light of day if you ask me but that's a rant for another day) but I really love Duo and Hilde as a couple. They're like the best friends that suddenly notice each other and have to figure out what to do with their feelings. That's how I always envisioned their relationship. As for Heero and Relena? I was rooting so hard for them to get together. The ending of Endless Waltz (the movie and the manga version) but more so the movie version had me crying like a little child. More than anyone else in the show, I really wanted them to get their happy ending you know?
Fruits Basket: Kyou/Tohru & Hatori/Kana
This series right here almost made me believe in true love again. Kyou and Tohru went through so much just to be together. For a while, I preferred her with Yuki because I saw the anime first. When I switched over to the manga, my feelings changed. In the anime, they missed a lot of little signs between Kyou and Tohru. When I switched to the manga, it finally clicked in my head and I was squealing like the fangirl I am. I was like, "Oh my goodness! They're canon! I can't believe it!" As for Hatori and Kana, their story was so heartbreaking. I still prefer them over Hatori and Mayu? I think that's her name. I feel as though their relationship wasn't examined or thought out very well. It's like the author went, "I can't let Hatori be single! He must have someone!"
Honorable Mention: Ayame/Mine
This couple is adorable. Before the creator even confirmed their relationship, I kept going, "There is no one else out there for Ayame. He better end up with Mine!" You can imagine how pleased I was when they finally got together at the end of the manga. I just enjoy how random these two can be. They were definitely made for each other.
Naruto: Naruto/Hinata & Sasuke/Sakura
This is another series that stole so much of my time and energy. I can't believe how many people were fighting over the pairings in this series. My absolute favorite pairing has to be Naruto & Hinata. Unlike other fans, I can pinpoint the exact moment when I fell in love with this pairing. It was during the Chunin Exams and Hinata was getting destroyed by Neji. Right after they wheeled her away from the battle, Naruto touched one of the blood stains on the ground and swore on her blood that he'd defeat Neji. To me, that was just so awesome! Here was this knuckle-headed ninja who didn't even know a single thing about Hinata's struggle but he was going to continue the battle for her? He didn't know her back story and he certainly never paid her much attention except for the few instances where she kept fainting or blushing or just generally being awkward in front of Naruto. I just really enjoy their relationship. They're polar opposites but it works!
My other absolute favorite pairing... No words can describe how upset I was with Sasuke when he left Sakura on that bench. After all of those small but significant moments from Naruto (protecting her when he didn't have to, slowly opening up to her, that scene in the forest where he was writing in pain from his cursed seal, when she was going to be killed by a Sound ninja and he stepped in to protect her) and he just leaves her for vengeance? I know I can never fully understand why Sasuke did all of those things because I haven't gone through that kind of trauma but for a while, I literally despised his character. He was so far gone that I knew no one could help him. Then when he finally came back to the village... I slowly but surely forgave him BUT I can see why people hate this pairing. He put Sakura through so much, never acknowledged how much she wanted to help him or love him and yet she still accepted him. I don't think I could have just forgiven him like Naruto or Sakura did. But love does funny things to a person right?
Bleach: Renji/Rukia & Ishida/Orihime
Another series that I spent way too much time and energy on. At first, I was a die hard Ichigo/Rukia fan. You couldn't tell me that they were not meant to be together. But that fateful episode that showed Renji and Rukia's past changed my mind completely. I know the creator hasn't officially confirmed any ships besides Gin/Rangiku or Byakuya/Hisana but I just adore Renji and Rukia! Best friends forever and then they suddenly realize how they feel for each other. That's why I like them. There's so much history between them and they're just so adorable!!! As for Ishida and Orihime, I know exactly when I fell in love with this pairing. It was during the Soul Society/Rescue Rukia Arc. When Ishida and Orihime were alone together and Ishida kept blushing and being so awkward... I just couldn't help letting out a happy little sigh about them. I'm very sad that I know this ship will never sail because she's too infatuated with Ichigo but that's what fanfiction is for!
Honorable Mentions: Byakuya/Yoruichi & Ulquoirra/Orihime
I know Byakuya and Yoruichi will never ever in a million years hook up. That's more or less my guilty pleasure pairing. I just really like the idea of those two together even though in the comics and the show, they never really look at each other like that. With their backgrounds being very similar, it just hit me one day that they'd make a cute couple. Of course, there's only one problem with this ship. I ship Yoruichi and Urahara as well. No matter what anyone tells me, those two are practically a married couple. Best friends my foot. You just don't up and leave everything behind for someone! Even if that is your best friend! There's something more between them but I'm probably just reading way too much into their relationship. As for Orihime and Ulquoirra, that's another guilty pleasure pairing. Truth be told, I would rather Orihime end up with anyone other than Ichigo. Only because he ignored her the whole series and NOW we're winding down towards the end and suddenly, I'm supposed to believe in that ship? When you know what freezes over, I'll ship them. Until then, Orihime and Ichigo will stay friends in my mind.
My Policy On Reviews
I will gladly review a story but I'm a firm believer in returning the favor. Nothing irritates me more than reviewing a story that you've been following for weeks and/or months but then no one bothers to review your works. I do enjoy writing but I think it's only fair if I review your story that you should let me hear your thoughts on my stories. Please don't think I'm being mean when I say that but it's honestly how I feel. Fair is fair right? Constructive criticisms are always welcomed but no flames. What's the purpose of reading a story if you're only going to rant and/or rave about how much you hate it or how much it sucked? If you don't like what you're reading then stop reading and go find a different story to read.
Everything You Need To Know About Me
Like most of you guys I started out as an avid lurker on here and multiple other websites/forums dedicated to anime/manga. I enjoyed (and still do actually) many different fandoms so I would just search for stories about fandoms that I loved to pieces such as Gundam Wing or TMNT. I didn't really think I'd end up writing fanfiction until a few of my good TMNT friends encouraged me to pick up the pen again. Originally I started off as a Gundam Wing fanfic writer. Some of my stories were decent while others should have never seen the light of day. I like to think I've grown to be a much better writer.
Moving right along, some of you may be wondering why my stories always tend to focus so much on angst, drama, tragedy, friendship or familial bonds. Those are the genres I write the best or so I've been told. After those three genres, I'm pretty good with comedies. Apparently I write subtle humor which is supposedly the best kind of comedy. Again this is what I've been told. Honestly? I think I stink at writing comedies.
I will admit that I am very guilty of having some sort of positive message shown in my works. This is because I believe we see enough dark and depressing stuff in the world. Keeping that in mind, I also try my hardest to address realistic issues and problems in my stories.
You will never catch me writing crazy, nonsensical stories just for the heck of it. The only way you'll see those sort of stories on my page is if I'm writing a humor/parody fanfiction.
If I'm not writing family centric stories then I tend to write friendship centric stories. This is mainly because sometimes I want to read about two characters interacting with one another and learning about each other. In the various fandoms I follow, there's no way everyone is all buddy buddy like most fanfiction writers tend to make them. Sometimes I just want to see characters hanging out and doing normal every day stuff.
Possible Future Works
It Just Had To Be You
Summary: Not all friendships are easy. These friendships, however, are made of something else entirely.
Inspiration: This story came about because I was getting a bit bored not to mention annoyed with how everyone assumed that everyone in the series was buddy buddy. To me, I think it would take time and a whole lot of patience for certain characters to reach the friendship level. At best, mostly everyone in the series was either acquaintances or allies. Only a few characters really did become friends. So basically this is my attempt to explore how certain characters ended up becoming friends.
Love Is A Battlefield
Important Update: First of all, I would like to apologize to the many people who have enjoyed and read the first couple of chapters of this story. I really and truly enjoyed writing this story. I have every intention to finish it someday. Right now, I am having a major case of writer's block. Every time I try to sit down and write a new chapter, nothing comes to me. I was literally writing this story without any kind of outline or guide which was a first for me. Normally I write important plot points down or bounce ideas around with a few of my friends who are into Gundam Wing and various other animes. Right now, the inspiration just isn't there but I PROMISE I will finish this story!
Words I Can't Say
Important Update: Good news! The newest chapter has been uploaded! Because I love this story and the reviewers so much, I posted this chapter without sending it to my beta. I'm thinking we've got maybe two more chapters left (this includes the chapter I just uploaded) but don't quote me on that. It's my goal to be finished with this story before the New Year comes rolling in! If that doesn't happen, I hope you guys stick with me until I complete this story!
