Author has written 12 stories for Rurouni Kenshin, Naruto, Inuyasha, Trigun, and Labyrinth.
Yo, I'm Ri.
I'm probably the slowest writer ever. I try to work on things behind the scenes in the hopes of uploading already completed stories. After over a decade—yeah, I can't believe it either—I've finally started using more "formal" outlines. We'll see if this improves my writing speed and my ability to finish things at all.
I did a (sadly short-lived) collab with Re-Ane over at drunk driving,
I have an ao3 account (username: Natarie) for cross-posting purposes (and the home of my slash fics! really? yup, otps happen when they happen),
and here is my tumblr (username: magicabout) if you'd like to talk or ask me anything anonymously
My bestie Re-Ane drew me Princess Carry Itachi fanart for the Gratitude one-shot of my ItaSaku Fest fic which you should totally check out in all its full-sized glory. Squee!
07.17.15 OK I don't know why ffdotnet has broken my links, but if you go to my tumblr, username magicabout the amazing Princess Carry Itachi fanart can be found if you check my tags page and click "my fics" ffdotnet ugh why
04.29.16 Gave up and posted the first chapter of the labyfic since all it needed was to be finished up and polished.
Also if you're into BBC Sherlock and living in the gay detective hell you can find my slash fics on my ao3 account (username: Natarie)
Threefold: Sakura wasn't thinking about what would happen in-between finding the rebels and taking Konoha back from Danzou. She didn't realize five months was plenty of time to develop conflicting feelings. ItaSakuSasu *non-Massacre AU of a sort; approx 37,067 words
8.29.16 CH3 Up!
Reversal: When Orochimaru’s experiments with the Shodai’s DNA are discovered, Tsunade takes the fall and is forced to flee the village with her two apprentices. Five years later, ANBU Captain Uchiha Itachi is sent to gather information on Akatsuki’s youngest member. Non-Massacre AU. Dark. ItaSaku; approx 60,672 words
Stalled actually outlining all the middle bits where the plot always gets fiddly.
Glasses: It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a person with really bad eyesight must be in need of glasses. Or: The AU where Itachi is a myopic scientist who wears really thick coke-bottle glasses.
Part 1/Focus is up, Part 2/Scope languishing somewhere at maybe 1/3 completion, approx 5,023 words
Do Over: Sasuke-centric featuring a reluctantly redemption-seeking Sasuke and his curiously re-manifested big brother
Gonna call this one discontinued. It's hard to write Sasuke even under the magical blanket of non-mass when I can theorize that he isn't such a total idiot tool, much less in a fic taking place in a semi-canonical hypothetical future after the events of the series (and Kishi's attempts at "characterization" for Sasuke).
TL;DR Nothing about the Sasuke's character makes me want to write a believable humorous/angst fic about him trying to redeem himself anymore, even if I still love Itachi!conscience.
->Back-Burner Projects (AKA other stuff I occasionally drop 5k words on)
the Absolute Last AoshixMisao Drabble: my take on a fix-it epilogue for what happens after the events of the manga/series (OVAs, what OVAs?). An attempt at mature character growth on Misao's part leads to accidental courting, actual discussion of feelings, and a Happy Ending where Aoshi is Emotionally Committed and Contributes Meaningfully to the narrative; 48 percent, approx 19,335 words
I INTEND TO FINISH THIS 2K16 SO I CAN FINALLY MARK ONE MORE THING "COMPLETED" ON MY LIST OF WORKS I S2G
Ailurophilia: the love of cats; Itachi finds a cat. The rest, as they say, is history.
100-word drabble Uchiha-centric non-Massacre AU kitty-tastic ficlet series;
totally just for fun and because I love me some non-Massacre Uchiha fluff goodness
Necessity and Need: Sarah wakes up in the Labyrinth the day after she saves Toby. And the morning after that, and the next. Slow burn friendship-to-romance fic; plans for 6ish chapters, ongoing
