Hi! I'm Mayumi Takanashi, the author of the stories you may see below you. Please, I'd love to hear your comments or questions about my fanfictions below, so please review! It makes me happy to see the reviews in my inbox. I do ask that you not send any flames, because they make me feel sad and depressed. Constructive criticism is welcome, but no flames. Flames are bad. Nice people with nice reviews are good. Also, check out my little sister's account, Angel Vanilla, if you're a Teen Titans fan. She is a seriously kick-butt writer, and she's only twelve. Watch out J.K. Rowling! Don't forget my friend, Natie Eny, who's also a talented writer on the site. She's awesome at writing fics and poetry. I like her plot twists. My other good friend, dragondolphin1990, is a good writer. Read her stuff, okay? It's great.

I'm in a great guild on "" called the Anime FanFiction Club. Please take the time to check it out. We're a group of authors that share a passion for writing fanfics, reading fanfics, and just enjoying the beauty of anime! If you think that at least one of those fits you, then we want you in our guild! We have our own website with a collection of our fanfics. Go to "" to take a look around!

Don't forget to check out "", a role-playing group. If you have a profile you want to post, we'd like it bunches! I love making profiles! They are very neat. Actually, here's mine!

Her father taught her the family's ancient trade, but he left her family when she was nine, so for a short while she lived with her mother in the village of Shi-Taka. Her mother died shortly after from a broken heart. Since then Mayumi has been a wanderer, looking for the man who walked out on her family. Her search has led her back to the Final Inn several times.
