9/28/15: So I really don't have a clue whether the ending to "Difficulties" is actually any good, or whether I need to revise it...so I would be very grateful for any feedback! (Well, as long as it's reasonably civil.) There just seems to be something about this fic in particular...has traffic on this site gone down that much? Or maybe I just need to make more acquaintances since I'm relatively new to the fandom.

(Chapter 5 doesn't have a set date...it's any time before the 2 1/2-year timeskip. Chapters 23 and 27 could be really any time at all.)
I'm a 26-year-old (jeez I'm getting ancient) female college graduate who has just gotten her first job as an abstractor! I got ideas for my own spin-off plots as soon as I started watching anime, so imagine my excitement when I discovered this site in 2005! I had thought I was just being weird by thinking up my own stories. However, I'm interested in many more fandoms than my fics let on. Periodically, I try new fandoms, so you'll never quite know where I'll be looking next! Heck, I'm not sure that I know.
Some things to keep in mind while reading my fics:
-I am NOT a fluff person. My sense of humor tends to fall more in the sarcastic, crackfic range, and I also like dark, angsty stuff. A lot of times, when I try to read fluff, I get bored halfway through the story. So, I try to write stories that have substance to them. (And I realize that I'm starting to write some fluff myself with my JackxCarly and Azula series, but I do try to give them realistic problems as well.)
-I sometimes use literary devices such as symbolism. When I keep mentioning certain objects in my stories, chances are that they symbolize some sort of concept or idea.
-I am a big procrastinator. If I have not replied to your PM/updated a story, chances are I'm lazy and putting it off.
-I live for being completely original. If somebody else writes something similar to an idea I had, I'm probably not going to be writing that idea. If I do get inspired by something else, I usually give it credit in my author's notes.
-I do a lot of research for my more serious, adult-themed fics. Anyone can just type random cliched stuff about sex and pregnancy, but I take the time to look stuff up to make sure that it's accurate. You will rarely see me making the excuse, "I'm just making stuff up because I don't really know how it happens."
-I rarely do explicit sex scenes. It's still a bit of a source of embarrassment for me. Over the years I've gotten somewhat more explicit, but I'm still not going to do anything X-rated.
-I also do research about foreign countries that appear in my fics, including Japan.
If you're looking for those quotes about bunnies and pot on here, then sorry. I have always thought that those were silly, and I just skip over them on other people's profiles. So here's the important stuff:
Favorite Characters: EKOU, REGGIE, Yubel, Misawa, Taniya, Manjoume, Chronos, Crow, Kiryu, Azula, Eska.
ManjoumexAsuka-It's still my OTP, darn it!
MisawaxTaniya: Because it's as close to canon as one can get in GX.
JudaixRei: They seem to have much more in common than Judai and Asuka do.
ManjoumexRei: I see this one as more of a frustration thing. Manjoume can't get Asuka, and Rei can't get Judai, so they make do with some substitutes.
AmonxEkou: The second-closest to canon pairing.
TaniyaxEkou: I'm usually not interested in shojo-ai/yuri. This is the exception.
JudaixYubel: I dunno...I just feel sorry for poor Yubel, being all alone in space for a thousand years.
CrowxAki. A friend from Livejournal hooked me on this one.
YuseixAkixCrow love triangle
JackxMikage (Yes, I ship both this AND JackxCarly!)
DivinexAki: I have nicknamed this AmonxEkou 2: Electric Boogaloo. But I'm not sure if that's quite fair, since in some ways this is even creepier than AmonxEkou!
Creepy, one-sided YuseixKiryu.
-AzulaxTom-Tom (in the future, of course!)
-Zutara (I can see them fooling around as teenagers, but not so much starting a life together as adults.)
-Bopaleska (why choose when you can have both?)
-Korrasami (Not something I'd write fics about myself, but I'm glad they ended up together.)
I realize that there aren't many yaoi pairings on this list. This is not because I hate yaoi...in fact, I read it quite often. However, I've always been more of a het person at heart.
General Fanfic Likes: Well-written lemon scenes; original ideas; long reviews and constructive criticism; and people who understand that I'm trying my best to convey all my perverted ideas, and it can be difficult to get all the nuances sometimes.
General Fanfic Dislikes: OCs paired with canon characters (But there ARE a few OC fics I've liked.); People who bash the dub just because everyone else does; people who think that their interpretation of canon is the ONLY possible one; people who don't give new/young writers room to grow; harsh criticism/flames; reviews consisting of one word; people who refuse to accept that GX has plotholes the size of Texas; TROLLS!
General Likes: Being alone; going on the computer; eating; sleeping; chocolate; cooking/baking; writing; reading; history; chemistry.
General Dislikes: Noise/crowds; alcohol; cigarettes; people who break rules; rap music; spinach; preschool-age children; stupid people; waiting in lines; tight clothing; hot weather; math; boring vacations.
My Deviant Art account: Be sure to check it out! The link is at the top of the page. There are naturally a lot of pictures of Ekou, but also several of various other characters. Kind of dormant right now, but every so often I'll post something new.
