Hi guys, I'm Crimson Kunoichi~! I've been loitering on the internet for a loooong time and writing for about nine years now. My three loves are; games,martial arts, and anime.
I've been gaming since I was three years old! The first game I ever played was Sonic the Hedgehog on the Sega Mega Drive/Master System. My favourite game of my childhood was Final Fantasy 7; it was the first game where I truely got attached to the characters and enjoyed a game for its story. I played strategy games a lot too but once I discovered Bioware games, I was hooked. The way they get across a story is nothing short of amazing. I play all sorts of games these days and it's been games where I draw alot of inspiration from :3
I started karate when I was 13 and kept at it for four years before I went to uni. I was always entranced by asian martial arts films like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Hero etc etc. So whenever I'm writing fight scenes it's usually me remembering some trick I learned in class, or a move from a film. These days I do Aikido which is pretty interesting stuff. It's all about using an opponents momentum against them which works well when you're a girl and your opponent is usually much bigger than you :P I've been doing it for five years and I'm not even a black belt yet!
Anime has kind of flickered in and out of my life intermittently. When I was young I watched Sailor Moon, Pokemon, a little Digimon and a little Yu Gi Oh but back then I didn't make a distinction between anime and cartoons. (I also loved Spongebob.) I only discovered Naruto in my teens and it took a while before it grew on me and I began loving the show for it's feel good message. So long as you try, you can be almost anything you want to be! That kind of thinking got me through some rough patches. My favourite anime is probably Ghost in the Shell for its originally and tech feel. I like other stuff too; like Claymore, Soul Eater... I've watched some Pandora Hearts, Elfen Lied, Madoka, Death Note and am beginning to watch Baccano, and D-Grey Man.
What to expect from me is probably more Shikamaru in this space ;) Am planning on writing a Hope Estheim fic too. (If you've played FFXIII-2, you will understand. Puberty done good. :P) Also, probably will get around to writing some Kiba, Naruto and Kakashi stuff because they are all awesome too. If I get into the swing of writing again, I might even throw in a Balthier fic for free. He does not get enough love for a man with as sexy a voice as that!
Anyways... Ciao~! :3
