I usually write fantasy stuff, 'cause I'm a huge dreamer and I always imagine that these imaginary things I come with are real. Recently, I've gotten into romance...but, as always, I add a little fantasy twist to it. ;) However, most of those stories that I've written are not on this site, since I don't want them on the internet if, by chance, I publish any of them.
I also have a fanfiction.net account! All of the stories I write on there are Naruto fanfics...despite the fact that I've gotten bored with Naruto, I still find it to be the easiest to write fanfics about. Probably becuase it was the first anime/manga I got into and I know the characters well. Anyway, I have 10 stories for Naruto, and Harry Potter, on that site. Check it out! ("Shinobi Magic" is my biggest one while "The Whole Story" is my most difficult, yet most satisfying project.) I haven't updated in a while because I've been focusing on my novel, but read anyway!

MY NOVEL! I'm working on a novel called "Sojjiyu", which prevents me from updating frequently. Sorry. I will not be posting this on fictionpress I don't think...but we'll see. It's fantasy of course. It's about a valley village called Sojjiyu and three friends who live in this village. A mysterious power is destroying the surrounding nations and they all flock to Sojjiyu, since it is the only place that the mysterious power cannot touch. There's a lot of drama, death, and suspense, mixed in with some romance, and I'm finding it very difficult to write due to my multitude of characters and plot twists, but it is SO much fun. Mostly because the names are super unique (I came up with them myself) and I based all of my characters off of someone I know. It's fun to show these people the story and watch them laugh at their own character. Apparently, I know people very well. xD
I've already planned out a sequel to it as well, called "Anirbas" and its about the civil war in - you got it - Anirbas, a nation outside of Sojjiyu. And a threequel! "Uorrea," which is the name of another great nation outside of Sojjiyu. The three main characters, plus some others, from "Sojjiyu", are once again the main characters of this book. It's great, I promise.
If you wish to read this story, I'd be happy to send it to you. Just PM me!
Oh and...PLEASE READ MY NEW STORY! It's called "The Bucket List." I wrote it with my friends and myself in mind. It's got some sci-fi, some romance, lots of adventure, some action, boatloads of friendships, new and old, some drama, and whole bunch of sheer teenage stupidity!
Because I really want people to read my story...
PLEASE READ MY NEW STORY!

Well, that's it for now. Hope you guys enjoy my stories, and I hope to hear from all of you! I try to make a point of replying to all of my reviewers, though until I get some sort of following going, I'm not likely to do that. So read! And review! ...And then review again!
And again, possibly?
Eh, I won't push my luck. xD
