Welcome, Guest! :)
I've been writing stories for a long time. I'd just never uploaded any of them onto ff.net before 2004, as there was nothing that I liked enough to present to the public before that time. Most still haven't ended up on here (but I'm hoping to change that). By reading fanfiction, I continue to grow as a writer, and incorporate what I've read to create a writing style that suits me. Fanfiction is my haven once a series ends, and I love the community here. If you're here about my story, you'll find some notes at the end of my profile notes. Gracie.
I hate flaming. It's as simple as that. (I also hate people belittling/bashing other people's likes/interests without a seriously legitimate reason, including when it's outside of the fanfiction-verse). Note that there is a significant difference between constructive criticism and flaming. Constructive criticism is meant to help a person improve their writing or give them ideas, while flaming is just verbal abuse and downright mean. I believe that people are allowed to have their own opinions. One person should not bash another just because they don't necessarily agree with the other's opinions or ideas, or share their interests. If you don't like something that an author has written (such as the topic material), and there's no way to change what you don't like through some polite constructive criticism, then don't bother continuing reading just to leave a bashing review (aka a flame). People are entitled to be interested in whatever they want, write about whatever they want, and like whatever the hell they want. It's hard enough for an author to put him/herself out there for public scrutiny, and place themselves and their thoughts and ideas in a vulnerable position that's on display for anyone's eyes to take a good look at and then judge. So, it's better in my opinion, if you don't like something someone's written to the point that you have nothing positive to say, to keep your opinion to yourself, and not waste your time or the author's by leaving a flame, and by doing so also save the author's feelings. I know plenty of authors, even really talented ones, who've been discouraged from writing due to a mean-spirited review they received, even when they had received countless positive reviews. That's just wrong. I would never consider flaming a person, no matter how much I may not see eye-to-eye with them, because I respect the fact that authors take a risk just by posting a story, and I also think that people are entitled to have their own likes and interests. I also think I abused the use of the comma in there, but alas.

Ahhhh, the part that all of the readers of Twisted have been looking forward to.
Story - Twisted: Pairing Explanation:
In case people are wondering, I will explain to you what the 'code' in my summary (which has actually been altered) and my story means. It would be so much simpler if they gave more space in the summary section.
HYR - Hao/Yoh/Ren - meaning a threesome, with Yoh sandwiched in the middle. It will also be split up into Hao/Yoh, Ren/Yoh, and Hao/Ren (I don't know if I'll ever make this switchable, but it's certainly possible - it depends on what readers say and how the story develops).
RHH - Ren/HoroHoro - I should actually note that this is probably going to be switchable, and change it to RHHR, but whatever. It seems to work out better that way.
HHY - HoroHoro/Yoh - enough said
There may be other pairings showing up in the future, but to begin with these are the primary focus.
Pertaining to Twisted: Everything Else That Needs To Be Discussed:
1) Before I get into the status details, there is one matter that I want to broach to any potential readers or those whom have already begun reading my story. The reason why I'm not going to put this into one of the already existing chapters of Twisted is because that would entail replacing the chapter itself, which I don't want to mess around with in case something goes wrong. There's also not enough room for this in my story summary, which is why I wrote that note in the summary to direct you all here. I'm sure that you're already aware that Yoh is incredibly OOC a good portion of the time in Twisted. Some of you may be excited or turned off by this detail, but let me just tell you that all is not as it appears. I didn't choose to make Yoh OOC on a mere whim. There's a good reason for his character change, which I cannot divulge just yet. It will be revealed as the story progresses. I just thought you'd all like to know, in case it's influencing whether or not you read this story. I'm the type of person who can't stand extremely OOC characters, so it's been rather painful so far writing Yoh (and even some aspects of other characters) so far, but you should understand in due time, and not everything will remain as it has so far. A rather enigmatic and 'round-the-bush explanation, but that's all I can say for now without revealing too much of the plot and ruining the story for you guys. If you're reading this, thank you very much. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me and I'll try to answer your questions as best as I can without revealing too much. Thank you again for your support! It means a lot to me.
2) There's something important I want to say to my readers, although I've been trying to put it off for a while, and didn't add this information to any of the already existing chapters so as to avoid giving people the false impression that I had updated. So let's address the elephant in the room. If my readers haven't already figured it out, my story Twisted is on hiatus - for various reasons. I won't give you a whole list of excuses, but basically lots of RL problems have gotten in the way. At this point however it's primarily due to lack of inspiration (I am currently in the process of hunting it down flying-ninja-squirrel style, because my previous attempts at coaxing it out with sweets and shiny objects have somehow failed). I am also planning on putting my story through renovation (editing), because I'm not sure that I like what I've written so far, and I think it's a little lame and could be written better. That, and I was a little Japanese-happy when writing the first three chapters, and I think I may have gone a little overboard, so I'm going to have to consider revising that as well. Additionally, I'm crashing into a double-hurdle of my writing style having vastly changed over time, as well as my plans having completely changed for where the story should go. If you are one of my readers and would like to contact me outside of a review, you can email/PM me through my profile (asking for me to post it on my profile or reply via email/PM) or wait for me to update (like you poor dears have been doing for so long now). You'll have to decide once you see the results whether you still like the story enough to follow it.
Also, if there's anything that you would like to be included in my story in my future chapters or in the original three, or if there is anything that you definitely don't want me to remove/change, or you have any constructive criticism (that is not a flame) I would be pleased to receive it (email me through my profile). I will take what you say into consideration - as long as I believe it to be intelligent (which really shouldn't be so hard, so don't feel too intimidated by that statement). Note that I HAVE NOT GIVEN UP ON THIS STORY (I'm hoping that makes it clear enough), nor do I plan to - and I cannot put enough emphasis on this. I'm still working on it, but there are some extreme holes in the plot, and I'm trying to figure out how to fill them in and patch them up smoothly, and I'm still trying to figure out what I want the end results of Twisted to be. I'm hoping that I still have your support, and that you will read the new and improved version of Twisted when it is done and ready to be read. I love you all!
