Author has written 10 stories for Naruto, Heroes, and Claymore.

Name: Raine Joybringer (well, that's just my online alias... But it may as well be my actual name :P )

Nicknames: RJ (use that please, I respond to it very well)

Age: Older than I look :D

Location: Australia

Loves: Sketching, writing, reading, all that stuff... and wasabi peanuts

Hates: Writer's/artist's block, seafood

Fav Anime/Manga (I'll just put my more recent ones): Naruto, Claymore, Macross Frontier, Maria+Holic, Soul Eater, Ghost in the Shell SAC, Princess Tutu, Fairy Tail

Why I love to write: I love to write fanfics. It gives me a chance to put into words what I can't do with art. It's a good feeling to write something and feel a connection to the characters, feel like they're your friends, or maybe even someone you know/knew. But what I most love about about writing is letting people see what I've written. Maybe I'll inspire, maybe I won't- but I still hope that people just enjoy my writing for what it is and find something in it that appeals to them. That is why I write- to spread imagination and joy.


Two Tailed Angel: A Naruto OC fanfic that follows (well, tries to follow) the Naruto storyline. This fic is now under a rewrite.

Had I Never Lived: The rewrite for Two Tailed Angel. A mostly OC-centric story, but will involve canon characters as time progresses.


Sometimes I'll draw some character art, because I like to get a feel for what the character looks like first so then it's easier to imagine them in my head. It also helps with describing clothes.

Owner's Guide and Manual for UZUMAKI NARUTO: One-shot humor piece based on Theresa Green's original format.

Ever wondered how your UZUMAKI NARUTO works? Has he broken down somehow? Well, fear not! This guide will answer all those questions; from 'why is my UZUMAKI NARUTO wearing some horrible freakish green thing?' to 'does my UZUMAKI NARUTO come with a kyuubi already installed?'. All this and more inside!

Fallen from Grace: A Naruto AU set in a modernist city with different yakuza factions.

I mean to write this more of an experiment than an actual fic. It started a while ago, but since the 'Team Hebi' arcs in the manga, it's been giving me a little inspiration. It's been progressing quite well so far, and I'm surprised at how the canon actually translates so easily.

Currently working on: On Hiatus

Singing in the Sunshine: A fic based off an idea from a friend of mine, Hinata unexpectedly is pushed into the world of an idol.

While on a mission, Team 8 needs a distraction in a night club to catch a crook. Hinata is put on the spot and finds herself on stage singing disguised in a henge. The plan works, but maybe it went a little too well... now Hinata is torn between two worlds - shall she choose the path of a singing sensation, or continue on her path as a shinobi? The decision only get worse when she discovers a certain blond has become head over heels for 'Idol Hinaru'.

Currently working on: On Hiatus

I Thought I had Lost Everything: One-shot fic for Sakura.

Sakura's thoughts during the Timeskip when both Sasuke and Naruto have left, leaving her without a shoulder to cry on. Or is there?

One at a Time: A series of one-shots concerning the characters of Naruto.

Sometimes I like to write a couple short fics as practice, since I feel I can be more creative in them. Anyway, it's a collection of various things, and contains a couple pairing fics and stuff I don't normally do.

The Horrors of AIM: Hosted on deviantart.

- What WOULD happen if the characters of Naruto learnt how to use AIM? Success... or disaster? I think the answer is obvious...

- A sequel! Ohhhh dear, what's Gaara done this time?

Currently working on a third installment.

AppearDisappear: A one-shot fic for a Heroes OC.

I'm not actually super-into Heroes, but it's a fandom that really interests me in its simplicity and gritty realism. It's so similar, but so different to many other fandoms of the same genre. I decided to take a crack at an OC story since, and it's a tiny bit ironic, that there that many fics set in different countries. I decided to give Australia a bit of a scene for once amid the chaos of New York and Vegas-centered fics, and try and create a character with a simple-seeming power.

Brittle: An OC-centric Claymore fic.

Claymore has really become a recent love of mine after having to watch it at anime club. I was quite surprised at how it changed from being a "hack'n'slash" adventure with pretty girls to a meaningfully deep plot that really tugs on the heartstrings. I've started to read the manga now - I'm even more in love. It's a real challenge for writing fanfiction for it too! I'm going to try my best then!

Currently working on: On Hiatus

Future Projects: Well, I was hoping of eventually doing a Soul Eater OC-fic or maybe a buddy cop fic of Shikamaru and Rock Lee.

Thanks for dropping by! Oh, and don't forget to visit me on deviantart!
