Author has written 1 story for Fantasy.

Two years after I create it, I finally find a use for this account!

I'm known by the same name on Fanfiction.net, where I have something of a reputation for complex stories involving multiple genres spanning epic adventures, especially in fantasy. Oddly, my home genre is sci-fi, but I've found a deep love for fantasy, rooted in the Legend of Zelda franchise. I penned Heroes of Time, in essence a deep character study of the protagonist Link, in response to the profound effect the game Twilight Princess had on my life and my outlook. Seriously. It changed me!

Fanfiction also helped me develop my writing style. I found myself able to handle multiple characters, intertwining plotlines and romance, and still make a half-decent story out of my words! I'm something of a fledgling author; I hope one day to be published. I have a highly-developed original Sci-Fi space-opera series in development; what's stopping it is the fact that it's only developed in my head and it's so hard finding a starting point to write the stuff down!

In the meantime, I would like to use this account to showcase my latest inspiration, 'Yuuki's Song.' I have a strong interest in Japanese culture and manga, so I am going to try to write a story in manga style. There will be some Japanese references, but they won't be plot-centric.


My Stories

Yuuki's Song: Adventure/Romance/Action/Humanitarian, Rated T for violence and language, may become M for sexual content
In an alternate world, the distinction between human and animal is a bit blurred. People have animal ears and tails, and fall into distinct races. In one particular land, dog-eared Inus rule with an iron fist, oppressing the native cat-eared Nekos. Rebellious Neko Hiro manages to escape the encroaching Inu relocation force and plans to run as far away as he can. Along the way, he rescues Yuuki, a younger Neko who has been forcibly separated from his mother and friends and abandoned in the wake of the relocation convoy. Alone, these two cats unite to survive in the Inu's world, determined not to let them win... and in the process, grow closer than they ever thought possible.
Yuuki's Song is an experiment for me. It's the first actual original fiction piece I have published, ever. All characters, settings and the plot are mine; any similarity to any other work is purely coincidental. I'm trying to see if I can write my own story, away from the guiding rails of fanfiction, and if what results is a good piece of work. It's also a shameless attempt to write a story about one of my favourite topics - neko yaoi!
Warnings: violence, language, yaoi (homosexual romance and sexual themes), possibly culturally-sensitive topic. Please don't flame me for the subject matter - if you have an issue with my portrayal of anything, please leave me a critical review or send me a message.

AU. Yaoi. Nekos (cat/human hybrids) are normally kept as pets, but when happens when Naoki is roped into taking two military nekos into his household, and what sultry occurrences will follow?
