Author has written 1 story for Samurai Jack, and My Life as a Teenage Robot.
Hey, everybody! I'm Kaleiyah-P.
By day, I'm a freelance online tutor. By night, I'm a lover, teller, and creator of stories.
Thanks to anime dubbed in English back in the '90s, I gained a profound interest in Japanese culture, anime, manga, and VOCALOID. A lot of style elements from anime probably end up in my stories without me knowing it, but hey. If it makes my stories better, I'll take it.
On FanFiction.net, I hope to revisit my childhood and play around with ideas that come into my head -- even possibly giving them a more mature spin. Cartoon Network (two-thirds) and Nickelodeon (one-third) were a large part of my childhood, which is why the first fanfiction I ever decided to post here was "Jack and the Robot Girl," a crossover between Genndy Tartakovsky's brilliant "Samurai Jack" and Rob Renzetti's "My Life as a Teenage Robot." Go have a read, if you're interested.
I consider writing fanfiction great practice for writing original fiction. Writing fanfiction forces you to understand character development, plot mapping, setting accuracy, and narrative credibility. When writing rough drafts of stories, you can be very forgiving of typos and details left out. But on this site, where everything is uploaded chapter by chapter like volumes in a comic book, you need to have a story planned out or you have to be very, very detailed from the get-go and stick with your story till the very end. You're forced to take every word you write seriously.
My ultimate vocational goal is to become a full-time writer and published author. Unfortunately, writing fanfiction doesn't pay the bills (unless you have a creator's written permission to profit from it, but that's very rare). But I do enjoy writing, and I do enjoy writing fanfiction. So, if I have time, I might post some more stories -- just not on a super regular basis.
If you like my fanfiction, please consider following my blog, where I write musings on life, give weekly writing tips, and publish original flash fiction every Friday. You can also find me on Goodreads, Twitter, SoundCloud, and deviantART.
Happy writing, and happy reading!
