Author has written 11 stories for Vampire Diaries, Dexter, Gundam 00, and Fate/stay night.

*NOTE: 02/November/13: WOW! It's been a loooong time! Sorry everyone, life was calling. I now have three jobs (completely by accident) and am writing my thesis, so all thoughts of creativity (other than my thesis work...ugh) are gone out the door for the most part. I know you'll find it hard to believe, but for the last four months I've been working on ONE chapter of Reverie, and I'm overhauling the plot that I'd originally written (in favor of something I like better for the rest of the story). I can't make any promises about update times (this is very different from my every-other-day updates of the first 20 chapters, isn't it? :P), but this story is always on my mind and I'm continually thinking of better ways to approach it/tweak it when it's finished.

Thanks all!

31/01/13: Both Tease Me and Drink Carefully have been taken down.

About Me:

I like dark things, sexy things, and a lot of gore. If I could, I would use strippers in every story I write...but that would get a little repetitive. My favorite characters are very smart, witty, or like to stir things up...the more evil the better really. Man-behind-the-man is my favourite character a lot of the time.

Also, I'm terrible at responding to reviews. I'm great with chat, but review responses seem to elude me.

*Why I play Review Tag for my G00 fics*


I spend a lot of time working on my fics in the Gundam00-verse, and I consider them my best works yet. I'm hugely thankful to those who review religiously, PaperxTrain, Anne Fatalism Dilettante, and StormyMonday, they've helped me keep writing and get my ideas and tone worked out (mostly) for my multi-fic story. That being said, because I consider it my best work and my favorite, with easily the most work put into it, I'd like a lot more feedback. Seeing as the G00 fanbase is kind of dead, I've turned to Review Tag. Also, RT introduces me to a lot of very well-written other stories!

I hope that explains it.

*Why I write OC Stories*

I've gotten a few messages/nasty reviews over the course of my time here for not following a pairing that someone likes/introducing a new character. RELAX, it's fanfiction. It's about having fun with and paying homage to a series you love. It did make me want to write this mini-section though.

I write OC stories because I love the fun of creating characters. Nine times out of ten I absolutely love the main cannon pairing but I can't help but think of OC story possibilities. Its such a challenge to write OC fics for two reasons:

1. They have to be believable

2. They can't be Mary Sues.

The first one is the most fun. I love things that are challenging, and writing a new character into a series with an established fan-base and an already complex set of relationships is hard to do properly (sometimes I'm not sure if I've ever done it properly). Most importantly I have to convince you, the reader (Loves you all!) who probably eats, sleeps, and breathes the series that this OC could actually become involved. On that note I actually get so happy that I've danced around the house on occasion when a dedicated fan of a series has said that the character is realistic/like-able/not sue-ish/very well matched to their love interest.

The second one is fun because it tests my abilities as an author. I have to write flaws into the characters, I have to make them weak in some areas, and I have to make them real. I've done it poorly before, so the real fun is getting better with each try. This is hard because as the "mother" of these characters I want them to succeed, but at the same time it makes the stories interesting (and allows me to happily add some gore into the stories) because I have to 'hurt' my own OC. You'd be surprised how many times I've wanted to kill my OCs by the end of stories because it would fit well (and because their love interest could then return to canon). The most pain I think I've ever inflicted on an OC is probably in my currently unpublished Gundam SEED Destiny fanfic. Poor Brinn has been through the ringer and back.

Now that I've said that, please try to see why I do it, and if you don't like the pairing I've made, you have the choice to not read my stories.

*Upcoming Work!*

Reverie: Working on it. I'm very excited about this story!

Angel of Mine: Not motivated anymore, but I'll leave it up here in case I ever want to pick it up again. If someone wants to adopt it, be my guest.

Just Like Me: Only three chapters, maybe 4 in this story. It's about the first girl that Brian leaves in season 1. Kind of just a writers block distraction for my other stories. Will not be updated with any frequency.


I, Naishu, do solemnly swear to review all the fics I read, regardless of the number of reviews, its age, or anything else.

I have joined the review revolution.
