Author has written 6 stories for Naruto, Love Hina, and One Piece.
What can I say? I'm from the Philippines, one of the Macross Generation. (Yes, I'm that old.) I found this website and loved how people here Write, Write, and Write about Naruto, so I felt it's time to add my own story as a gesture of appreciation. I hope that my contributions would be enjoyed by everyone who read them.

Pairings? I don't believe in pairings much, though they can be cute. No Yaoi, though.
My goal: To write at least one (1) fic for each of the anime I've watched. Yes, that's going to be pretty tough, and many of them don't have their own categories in FFN. But let's see how far I can go.
Oh, and check out BS no jutsu by SuperLardBucket. Read chapter 4 so you can, according to the story, "see that I’m the pinnacle of awesomeness."
(Shameless, absolutely shameless.)
Jan 1 2009 resolution: Post my new story!
Mar 27 2010:
An aunt of mine found one of my earliest attempts to write a short story. I think I was 15 or 16 when I wrote it. For the sake of posterity I'm posting it here, with minor spelling and punctuation corrections:
A Cat Story
"All right then," said the old man. "So man dies, and he stays dead forever. He can't die today and change his mind afterwards."
"Yes, exactlty," the old woman agreed.
"But what's so nice about that," he asked. He saw nothing wrong about living forever. After all, he does.
"It's not supposed to be nice," she answered. "Try to see it my way: If man has too much time on his hands, he'd simply waste it. Besides, he'd be more difficult to entertain."
Nonsense, he thought. "It's okay to waste something that doesn't run out."
"That's not true. Anything that man can use, he can misuse, so he'll just have to make do with the time he has." He noted the finality and triumph in her voice. Another argument won by the Honorable Old Woman. He hated losing to her. He hated it so. Couldn't he lose, just once? Or at least, not win?
"Oh, all right," he grumbled. He supposed he'd had enough of losing for that day. But not really.
"So, what about cats?" He asked.
The question was totally unexpected. "What about cats?" She didn't understand.
He swallowed. "Well, they aren't like man. You cant accuse them of wasting anything. Shouldn't they live forever?" It was a stupid question.
She waved her hand. "Cats sleep too much, and they're too small. Dogs should live forever." Stupid questions deserve stupid answers, obviously.
He persisted. "But if a dog ever gets mad at a cat, he could kill every cat ever born. That is not fair to the cats."
"Then cats should be smarter, and faster. And they should climb trees."
"But cats can't stay in trees forever," he countered. "They should be at least be fast healers, so when they get hurt, they recover quickly."
"Even so, they should live about ten years at most."
He saw no point in arguing any further. "Then cats should have many offspring," he sighed. She just wouldn't budge.
"Agreed," she replied. She was quite satisfied with the outcome of their discussion. And the old man too, it would seem. She honestly couldn't see why he had to start it, but she was glad he did. She didn't care for cats much, but she adored dogs. And he's had his say; that should make him happy.
"At least, cats would always be remembered by the men who cared for them," he consoled himself.
This bothered her somewhat. "But what about the dogs, wouldn't men remember them?"
"Men wouldn't live long enough," he reminded her. "But the dogs would remember them."
She never saw that part coming. Neither did he. "That must not be so," she declared. "Dogs should not live forever. Men must remember them, not just the cats."
"But how should dogs live," he asked.
"Dogs should live as long as cats. They should also have many younglings, so cats and dogs would be even."
Good recovery, he thought. Still, it was nice to see her take back what she said. "Let it be so," he beamed.
And so it was.

What is the opposite of win? How is it spelled? For those who think they know but really don't, I offer this site:
