A picture is worth a thousand words, and a story is worth a thousand images – M.M. Kin

Hello, readers! I am CultOfStrawberry!

A bit about me - I am a shameless pimp and eccentric who has a fetish for tomato soup, toesocks, and world domination. My biggest fandoms are Frank Herbert's Dune series (and none of that 'new' Dune shit that Bri Bri and his little fuckbuddy Kevin write), Robert A. Heinlein - my favorites being the Past Through Tomorrow, Time Enough for Love, and A Stranger in a Strange Land, and the TV shows Avatar: the Last Airbender, Desperate Housewives, and CSI/Law & Order, though I also like Anne Rice (before she converted and wrote the dreadful Blood Canticle), V.C. Andrews (not the tripe that her ghostwriter churns out), Strangers in Paradise, Lady Death, Heroes, Cyborg 009, Kabuki, Sailormoon, Osamu Tezuka's works (check out Buddha, Phoenix, and Ode to Kirihito) and a whole bunch of other stuff. I read a LOT, as I will read almost anything as long as its well written.

I'm also a big fan of old-school style video games. Forget X-Box, PS2/3, Wii, Gamecube, and all that newfangled crap. I'll stick with Atari, Nintendo, Super Nintendo, and Sega Genesis. My favorite games are Tetris, Super Mario Brothers (For the NES/SNES) the Legend of Zelda Series (up to and including Ocarina of Time) the Final Fantasy series (FFI-VI) and the Sonic the Hedgehog series (just the Genesis one, before the Sonicverse went to crap with its clusterfuck of recolors)

I dislike fundamentalists/Creationists/religious whackjobs, Suethors, and rednecks as well as seafood, most of the crap on TV, and Paris Hilton. I can simply ignore one of the 6 (seafood), but the other 5 need to simply be killed with fire or shot in the face. Preferably both.

If you read my stories here on FFN, you may notice that certain scenes have been cut out. That is because I do NOT post smut/explicit sexual scenes here, since it is a direct violation of the TOS, and I am not going to break any rules (though they might be completely retarded) You can find all the uncut versions of the stories you find here over at AFF, since it is mirrored at here... , If you want to see the uncut version of Darkness Becomes Her or Worthy of Love, scroll down my AFF profile. There you will find three categories/links - Cartoons, Movies, and Original. Click on the Original link to find the smutty version of DBH. When asks you for your info, you don't have to put down your real name or such (which isn't a smart thing to do on the Internet anyway), so don't worry too much about the verifier. I just type in a random mishmash of keys for the name.

IMPORTANT NOTE to those trying to access AFFNet - I am not responsible for any issues with trying to get onto the site. If your computer blocks you from going to AFFNet, I cannot help you. I used to have a Fichaven account too, but I am no longer linking to that site, as it has been down for over a year and I don't ever expect it to come back up again. It's sad because FHaven was the one place where I could post my smut AND non-smut, my fanfics and drabbles and originals in one place. Unfortunately, the admin of that site, Jae, is a drooling imbeicle who should never be allowed to administer ANYTHING, and Jae ran the goddamn site into the ground with retarded ideas, and the original creator of the site is too lazy to get off her ass and do a fucking thing about it. So currently the only place I have my smut is AFFNet, and if your server or computer or whatever blocks you, I am sorry. It is out of my hands. Please do NOT PM me asking me to send uncut chapters to you. If you do not read this note and the one at the bottom about emailing me, do not expect a reply. Thank you and have a nice day.

I accept signed and anonymous reviews here and at my other archives, so you do not need an account to enjoy my work and tell me what you think of them!

To an author, reviews are food. I genuinely value my reader’s words of praise and listen to suggestions and critiques as well as kind words. I am a review whore, and reviews are the only nourishment that I get. I'm not being paid to entertain you, or put such a hard effort in my stories to make them well-written, so I need your kind words. Otherwise me and my muse starve and can't write. So, all you have to do is drop a few kind words, and I will keep working hard at giving you something entertaining to read.

A Very Important Note about my Guide... 'Spleef's Guide to Being Evil' was published WAAAAY back in 2002 on my website, which is now long since dead, and then on, which is now also defunct. I have gone through many of the chapters, tweaking, polishing off, etc. I will not be posting chapters by order, as some later chapters are done, and some have yet to be fleshed out or written. So don't be worried if you can't find a chapter - it is not yet up. I will try to post more chapters in a timely manner.

This Guide was written entirely by me, and when I had my own site, there was also a contributor-based part that basically consisted of ideas and tips provided by people who emailed me, and were accordingly credited. I cannot post that here, as these tips were written by my fans, and not myself. However, I will be using some of these tips. To those of you who were around to contribute or read that Tip List, could you tell me a good place where I could host that, and link here?

When I had this on my site, I had pictures accompanying the Guide to add to the pleasure of reading it. I am unable to do that here, though I may post a pictures-included version to my new homepage. I hope you enjoy what you read, and please leave feedback! Also, as I still consider my Guide an WIP (Work in Progress/unfinished), I will be welcoming suggestions, ideas for what should be added and feedback on chapters that are already up here. Really. :)

I also appreciate and welcome feedback and concrit for 'Beyond the Sunset', 'Worthy of Love', and 'Darkness Becomes Her'. I have these original stories also posted on AFFNet here. These stories will have intimate scenes in them, but these scenes will be cut out before posted here at FP, and can only be found at AFF. I have other original works in progress, but these unpublished works will not be posted online, since I also plan to turn these into novels, and do not wish to have ALL my original works posted (for security reasons) Upon completion of what I do have posted, I will edit these based on feedback revceived, and submit these along with my other originals for book publication.

If for any reason you ever want to contact me, feel free to do so at cultofstrawberry AT gmail DOT com. Don't send me PMs... seriously. The email I actually use is different than the one I use for this FP account, so if you send me a PM, I might not read it for weeks. If you want a guaranteed response, E-MAIL ME. I cannot stress this enough..
