About Me

I love foreign cultures, reading, gaming, music, volunteer work, and art (anime and manga included). I am really not a writer, but I enjoy doing goofy stuff like one shots for anime or other things I like. I also only write reader insert for the web for some odd reason. I work at the local grocery store as checker and my college as a tutor. I finished calculus II at college, and I preceded to sign up for calculus III . I am currently in college. I recently got one puppy, so now I have four dogs and three to train. My stuff will be continued to be written at the same slow pace. I love to draw and paint. I also like to work on cars with my free time(It\'s weird, I know.). Oh yeah, I love to work out at the gym or anywhere.

Works in progress as of January 30, 2010

I am currently working on a new one shots series for Vampire Knight. It\'s a Vampire Knight vacation series. I am working Ichijo\'s rough draft. I am currently typing Kain\'s one shot. It\'s getting close to being done. The plan is for five one shots in all. Kaname, Shiki, Ichijo, Kain, and Zero will have one shot each. I hate Aido with a passion, and I have always disliked him. I am sorry, but I hate forcing myself to write. With Aido\'s one shot it\'s forced writing. I need to type Chapter 3 of The Untold Secret of Cross Academy. I am writing on The Untold Secret of Cross Academy Chapter 4. I\'m work on Ancient Desires Chapter 3 with my coauthor. My life is super busy.

ON HOLD Section

Everything except Ancient Desires !

My life is insane... I have two jobs, officership, 15 hrs at college, friends, family, and so much more... I do love writing fanfics, but I don\'t have time at the moment. I work on stuff if I get time. I haven\'t had time in months.

Thinking about it Section as of January 30, 2010

I am currently think about doing more romantic oneshots for Skip Beat, Honey Hunt, Bleach, Naruto, One Piece, Prince of Tennis, Kingdom Hearts and Fruit Basket. I am currently thinking about Vampire Knight\'s one-shots for vacation, amusement park, or any other random place that comes to me. I am thinking about doing another high school story with different animes. I am thinking about seriously doing a one shot at the beach series after my Vampire Knight one shot vacation series. The characters will be Riku and Axel from Kingdom Hearts and Cloud from Final Fantasy.

Thinking means it may or may not happen. I am open to suggestions for different mangas and animes, but I may not use them. Please don\'t take it personal if I don\'t use it.

About my services:

Beta Description

I prefer a writer with some experience, although I am always open to new writers, too. Also I am new to whole beta thing, although I have taken Comp. 1 & 2 at college and all AP English through high school. I also write my own stuff, too. My personal style reading is different from my writing style. I wouldn't change something if I don't like the writing style. In other words I look for errors and leave the rest of the project alone unless asked to do otherwise. I am huge on communication between writer and beta-reader for I feel it's essential for good story. I am also fan of Docx because it will make the beta process easier for both the writer and me. I can beta some other fanfics not on my in preference list. I have read a lot of novels, and I also didn't list some manga. I

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strong points are in working out plots and ideas. I love to give suggestion on anything from character to how to make it more dramatic. English is my first an only language, so that may be helpful. I also study all types of cultures, so I can help with cultural related problems as well. Oh, I am a perfectionist, too. I normally catch most major errors in grammar. I almost always catch errors in capitalization and punctuation.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Grammar and spelling isn't my strong point. I also get annoy with misspelling, because computers have spell check for a reason. I am horrible spelling, but with spell check you would never know. Also text shortcuts like u and 2 get on my nerves, unless of course it's in context like in text message or note in the story. I am also slow because I have college, work, and various other activities. It should hopefully only take two or three days.

Preferred: types of entries I prefer over others
I prefer romance, humor, manga, and anime. My favorite type of manga/anime is shoujo and josei, although I read all types. If I haven't heard of it I'll look it up.

Will not read:
I won't read slash, yuri, yaoi, shoujo ai, and shounen ai. I also don't beta lemons, explicit sex scenes, and rape. Oh gore and language isn't a problem, although I won't read the killing of innocence people for no reason at least not with an details. Saying a character went on a killing spree is fine as long you don't add any details to it.
