Author has written 67 stories for Gundam Wing/AC, Prince of Tennis, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney.
Hello there! Welcome to my humble... um, profile. -.-;; Where's a nice portentous (ooh la la!) phrase when you need one?
Anyway, this is me, Sandileina, or Sandy for short. Sandileina is pronounced San-di-lee-nu by the way, so you have no excuse not to pronounce it wrong! Not that you'd probably be saying it out loud anyway, probably, but hey...
A little bit about me:
(No, I'm not putting my age and name, you nosy people!)
Nationality: Japanese, living in England (ugh, the terrible, terrible weather...)
Height: 5"1. Hmph. But some people don't stop growing until they're 22, right? So maybe... there's still some hope...
Gender: Female. I think... -Checks- Yeah, I think I'm female
Some of my favourite things: Gaara and Shikamaru from 'Naruto', my bed, the Rikkai Dai boys, rp over email, writing and getting reviews for my fics xDD
Favourite fandom: Prince of Tennis/Gintama
Favourite game: Hmm... Either the Fire Emblem series or Tales of Symphonia. They both rock!
Favourite character from FE: Matthew (Matti!) from Rekka no Ken and Soren from Path of Radiance (oh oh oh, so cute so cute so CUTE!)
Favourite character from Tales of Symphonia: Kratos Aurion
Favourite character of all time from anything anywhere: Duo Maxwell! He's just got the most interesting character anywhere, and you can do pretty much anything with it! Oh, there are so many reasons why I love him so much... it'd be impossible to list them all because my laziness would kick in long before I reached the end.
As of 2006: Ohh, so many of the Prince of Tennis characters, although only Fuji Syuusuke (and a couple of the Rikkai boys) come up to Duo's level.
As of 2007: The Rikkai boys rock my WORLD.
Least favourite character from GW: Relena Darlian-Peacecraft. Though not for the usual reasons that most 1x2 fans hate her for. I like her better than, say, those pathetic Princess-type characters that either can't do anything for themselves and swoon a lot, or have the barest amount of training with a sword or whatever and then are miraculously able to kill hundreds of people without any help. It's just that, as someone before me put so succinctly, "I shudder to think of the world in her naive, incompetant hands".
Least favourite character from FE 7: This is a hard one. Aside from the 'baddies', obviously, I'd have to say Ninian. I don't have anything particularly against her, I just don't like her as much as the others.
Least favourite character from TOS: Collette Brunel, no contest. Hmm, all my favourites are boys and all my least favourites are girls. Odd... o.0

"There's no point getting all flustered about it; life isn't permanent" - One of my best friends trying to calm down their sister just before her wedding. Needless to say, she hit him (my friend that is, not the groom).

What I really, really, REALLY love best in terms of fanfiction
Getting really long, rambly reviews! The more insane and rambly the better! Heck, I love any review that's fairly long, even if there isn't really a word of praise in there. Constructive criticism is very welcome! For example, I got a review from someone who was complaining about my inability to think up a title for my fic 'Untitled as of Yet' (lol). I wasn't going to actually bother thinking up a proper title until I got that review, which made me think one up. I renamed it 'Colony Labour Camp no. 125'. It's not the best title ever, but I'm really bad with titles for things. If someone comes up with anything better, I'd love to hear from you.
Flames, however, will get a long essay explaining my point, which will be attached to the next fic. So everyone can read it. n.n
And some more notes. :)
5.9.07: 10400 hits to my profile!
9.10.07: 11472 hits to my profile!
28.10.07: 12077 hits to my profile!
1.1.08: 14000 hits to my profile...:D
I claim copyright to my Rikkai naming system. xD I.e. I claim invention of Niou as 'Haru and Yukimura as Mura/Mura-buchou. If you use these then I'll fall over with joy, then ask very sweetly if in future you wouldn't mind crediting it to me. ;pp
Secondly, my PM thingy seems to be dodgy, and only sends me every other PM, or something. So you're far better off emailing me than PMing me, though either is fine. But if I don't reply to a PM of yours, then chances are it's ff.net's fault. :)
Thirdly, my birthday is on March 5th, same as Yukimura's! Which means that his birthday fic is likely to be drenched in fluff. Just so you know. xD
Fourthly, I also claim copyright to Akio and Saku as Marui Bunta's little twin brothers. Feel perfectly free to use them, but please mention me in your AN or something. :)
Fifthly, I use many, many smilie emoticon-type thingies, cos I'm just that kind of person. In case you hadn't noticed. ;)
Sixthly, Myth Pair? You heard it here first, baby! xDD
Seventhly, as of 16th August 07, I have hit the wonderful world of triple digits with people who have me on author alert! 101 have me on Author Alert (thank you all !) and 87 have me on Favourite Authors (thank you all more! xDD). I'm a happy little author.
Eighthly, concerning the warning 'Niou' OR 'Niou-and-all-that-he-entails'; this is me being lazy because any fic with our darling Trickster in is very likely to contain one, some, or all of the following: Language, snark, crack, angst, bitterness, pointless cruelty, Aka-chan/Sanada/everyone torturing for kicks, lengthy introspection. So that's what that's all about. n.n So if you see that warning then that's what you should be prepared for.
Ninthly, as of 24th September 07 (or thereabouts), I have hit triple digits with people who have me on Favourite Authors!! n...n So happy. Seriously. To those 103 people; thankies, and thankies also to the 110 who have me on author alert. -Grins like a mad thing-
Tenthly, and this is important: Niou Masaharu is completely colourblind EXCEPT FOR SHADES OF PURPLE, BLUE AND GREY. Which, come to think of it, is probably why he's so fond of Yagyuu. So there. n.n;; Kudos to Lupuslupin...
Eleventhly, if you're still reading this, I am in fact NOT DEAD as of 26th July '08. :o I was jumped on by Real Life, but I'm alive and relatively well. I will be returning to the fandom with less vigour than before due to increase in workload, but return I will. Hopefully very soon, with an epic new Drabblething. Or so my fingers cross. So, um, yay? -.-;;
Twelfthly (... I had to think for a few seconds to spell that, darn it), as of 17th March '09; you know my eleventh point? Yeah, um, it looks like any updates/return to writing fanfiction will be very, very rare. I'm sorry... I swear that the end of the PoT manga sapped all my creative spirit, as any and all creative writing has virtually disappeared since I read it. So there may well be fics in the future, likely to be pathetic little one-shots, lol, but, um... I wouldn't hold out hope? -Sadface- Having said that, you never know, right? So maybe my creativity will return... n.n;;
