Vena Cava had been nominated in Round 9: Some Kind of Wonderful (SKoW). Thank you to whoever that person was who nominated me. Lots of revisions and proof-reading still pending and the plot had not been properly introduced yet this early in the story but I really appreciate it. It was actually my first time hearing about this recognition-giving community and I'm honored to become part of it.

I DID NOT, DO NOT and WILL NOT come up with any fiction portraying MALE-MALE / FEMALE-FEMALE pairings. This includes turning down requests to review/proofread shounen-ai or shoujo-ai fics effective November 2007. (Personal reason = I'm a homophobic. Sorry for the fans but it's really not for me.) I've placed the details regarding updates of my works on my online blog.

Name: Mark Harold Larucea

Nickname: Hiro

FP Nick: hiro0911 (0911 = commemorating September 11 World Trade Center Bombing, where I lost a good friend of mine)

Age: 26

Gender: Male

Citizenship: American (but I'm actually half-Filipino (dad) and half-Chinese (mom))

Languages spoken: English (fluent), Chinese-Fukien (fluent), Chinese-Mandarin (semi-fluent), Tagalog (can read, can understand, can speak, but they say my pronunciation sucks now...), Spanish (a little)

Hometown: Makati City, Philippines (where I stayed from zero to three years old, left for Beijing, then went back to Manila for high school, then left again for college... ahhh, talk about migration...)

Location: Bay Back Manor, Boston MA

Point of clarification: I'm not gay.

Hobbies: Eating, tree-planting, eating, peeling vegetables, eating, digging holes, eating, dissecting chickens (where the hell do you keep the eggs?!), eating chickens, and eating...food.

Feel free to e-mail me about anything (just don't ask for money hehe) - hlarucea@

I don't have Facebook, Twitter, Friendster, or MySpace accounts.

All of these tantamount to massive and intricate planning
and hours of late-night writing and brainstorming.
I have received reports from concerned/loyal readers and seen quite a
number of plagiarism cases and it has been alarming for the past couple of months
(in Fictionpress, , Quizilla, Winglin, India-Forums, Wattpad, and AnimeForums).
Plagiarism is a form of stealing.
A plagiarist does not gain respect from readers.
Plagiarism is false gratification and deceit not only of others but of oneself.

Thank you for everyone's overwhelming support, especially to Fists and Lipsticks, Vena Cava, and Lessons for Lady Sin.
