Author has written 57 stories for Fairly OddParents, Pokémon, Teen Titans, Naruto, Hi Hi Puffy Ami Yumi, Tokyo Mew Mew, Ranma, Harvest Moon, Card Captor Sakura, My Little Pony, Mario, Super Smash Brothers, Fire Emblem, and Hetalia - Axis Powers.
Previous pennames: Jentastic, Origami Flower and Passion Fruit Fever
Been on Fanfiction since: I was 16
Residence: Merry old England
Reason for current penname: As a teenager, my favourite cartoon character was Raven of Teen Titans. Since then, I guess the name has stuck.
FUN FACT: My favourite anime is Hetalia. It teaches me history, geography, cultures and languages, it never fails to make me either laugh, squee or daww, it has great songs that I hold dear to my heart and it's helped me out of many a dark place. I love it to pieces. Also, I ship GerIta. A lot.
Favourite quote from a television advert:-
British narrator: In the world of Pokémon Battle Dimension, there are good guys and bad guys... but who's who?
James: Maybe some interpretive dance moves will give you a clue!
British narrator: The bad guys wear dark glasses... (shows Hunter J) look mean... (shows Paul) and recite lyrics from famous songs.
Jessie: We'll climb every mountain! Forge every stream!
Jessie, James and Meowth: We're hoping! And wishing! And dreaming!
British narrator: The good guys... it's all in the moves. (shows Ash spinning and pointing)
((Yes, because only good guys got the moves, yo... XD))
Favourite quotes from Harvest Moon:-
(A New Beginning)
Dunhill: For honey don't just care of the world, the bees you put in the box is important.
((... What? XD How someone could mess up a translation THIS BADLY is beyond me...))
(The Lost Valley)
Rowan: From now on, it's all up you.
((Oh, my... XD Methinks that's not what he meant to say.))
Favourite quotes from my actual life:-
Lecturer: How many of you prefer to read books on an electronic screen?
Lecturer: Good on you. You all get a first!
((This was probably a blatant lie on everybody's part, but hey. XD))
Student 1: Phil? When are we getting back our essays?
Lecturer: When I've marked them.
Student 1: ... Good answer!
(a short while later)
Student 2: I wonder when Alan Wall will give us back our essays?
Student 1: (laughs) The myth of the essays... "Follow me down into Hades, Alan, so that we can search for those missing essays. You can even ask Hercules, while you're there."
Student 3: "And have some pomegranates."
Student 4: "And a taste of asphodel."
((A class that tells Ancient Greek myth jokes. You gotta love it. XD The lecturer, Alan, was quite fond of talking to us about them.))
Fic I'm least proud of:
'Through Rain and Snow?'
Because it was the first fic I ever wrote. It has a terrible plotline (which was structured around a load of songs by Girls Aloud and Shania Twain) and terrible characterisation. However, it's a milestone, so it's going to stay up as a reminder of how much my writing's improved over the years.

My moral in fanfiction:
Write the story around the characters, not the characters around the story.
(Meaning, don't bend the characters to fit around the story. Nine times out of ten, they'll be horribly out-of-character. Trust me, I know...)
Also, for anyone who wants it! Especially anyone writing PokéPark fanfiction! Here’s a list of nicknames you can get in in PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond that I’ve personally seen myself in playthroughs. I’ll add to it as I find more.
Obviously, they mix and match, depending on who you used the last few times, and also what you did. Like how battling a lot with Snivy might make you the Leafy Knockouts, or the Eco Knockouts. Switching to Oshawott and collecting items might then change your name to the Stormy Collectors, or the Hydro Collectors.
... Though it can sometimes be a bit quirky with how it decides things and I don’t entirely get how it works. Like how I got called the Stormy Sweeties, by doing... I don’t know what.
... The kicker is that Darkrai called me this. In all seriousness, in that deep, resounding voice of his. Fun day. XD
For the first part of the nickname...
Zappy / Electro
Stormy / Hydro
Leafy / Eco
Fiery / Thermo
For the second part of the nickname...
