I don't update my bio very often since I'm sure almost no one reads it, I have written no stories and therefore have 0 fans that would be curious about me. But it’s been years since I last updated my bio so this is more for my personal satisfaction and curiosity to see how much I have changed in these past 5 years.
Real name: Linda (but i prefer to be called Kiseki by friends on the net)
Residence: The spaces in my mind
Hobby: Reading fanfiction/original stories, Playing MMORPG, Watching anime
Favorite genres: Romance, Drama, Action/adventure, Angst, Fantasy, Supernatural and Sci-fi
Dislike genres: Mystery, Horror, Parody, Family, Poetry, High school
Favorite word: Nostalgia
Story pet peeves: Cliche, OOC, Fluff
Plot/character devices I hate with passion: damsel in distress who does absolutely NOTHING but cry ‘save me!’ and in general be a burden to the story. Sub/uke MALE stereotypes that resemble the physical and mental characteristics of woman so much that they might as well be one, created as male for the sole purpose of calling a story ‘slash/yaoi/M/M’.
My first m/m pairing: Gundam Wing - Heero/Duo
Why I prefer reading M/M pairings far more than M/F: slash stories provide originality that very few straight pairing can compare to. Society has already deemed the role of females fixed and that is an irreversible factor deeply ingrained in our everyday lives. Creativity and uniqueness is one reason, the second reason is for equality. Equality is a quality rarely found in straight pairings, woman from the time of Eve has always been perceived as the unfaithful one, ‘wife, mother, and whore’. In a slash pairing since men are equal among themselves the issue of infidelity and its potential risk poses far less of a threat. The ability to challenge your chosen partner for full rights of top/bottom is the third reason why I prefer M/M pairings far more than M/F.
Favorite quotes from my readings:
"The world is saved...but not for us." (Full Circle, FMA)
"Needs must where the devil drives." (Full Circle, FMA)
"Reputation is what men and women think of us; character is what God and angels know of us." - (Hsin Liu Vega, ICoS)
"I don't have the fame anymore to justify your saying that. And I never had the gullibility." (Sympathy with the Predators, HP)
‘Lucius watched his son with detached disappointment. He still had not learned that, when threatening someone, the first rule was never to reveal one's exact plans.’
‘Of all the strange people in the old bar, there was something about the way those giggling wide-eyed little girls looked at him that unnerved him more than anyone else in the pub. It was like the way Vegita looked at you before he pummelled you. Like he knew something you didn’t.’

Stories in bold are my personal favorites, the ones I have read over and over again multiple times and never get bored of. They come with my absolute guarantee and vouch of excellence.

Original Story Relics:
- In the Company of Shadows series - by Sonny & Ais
Original Summary: In the Company of Shadows is a series about two people who are thrown together as partners in a secret agency; their mission is to disband rebels who have propagated in a post-war future, but they have to deal with everything that comes with an unlikely partnership as well.
Miscommunication, periods of distance, fleeting smiles and learning to trust someone when a person can't even trust himself, these are what they struggle with while still trying to do their jobs. One is a psychopath, called a murderer and monster and generally deemed subhuman by nearly everyone who knows of him; the other is an introvert, cold and emotionless and so lost in thoughts that he would agree that he can be called a monster of inhumanity. But what makes a person human; is it humanity, compassion, or is it simply the ability to reason? Can a monster be human, and general humanity breed monsters?
While they learn about each other, they learn about themselves; where their loyalty and morality lies, and how learning to trust another person can be incredibly difficult, bittersweet, and rewarding all at the same time.
- The God Eaters - by Jesse Hajicek a.k.a. Chartreuse
- Special Forces - by Marquesate
Original Summary: Two enemies who meet in the line of duty during the early days of the Soviet Union's last war in Afghanistan. Behind enemy lines respect and finally love grow ... but that's only the official version.
The reality of these two men is dark, brutal, fuelled by aggression and insane lust. Steeped in pain and killing, with death as their shoulder companion, these Special Forces soldiers meet in 1980. Their intense hatred caused by rape, revenge and torture turning into fucked-up lust and years of secret encounters in the rat-infested labyrinth of Kabul and the Afghan mountains. Time, despair and desolation smoothing down the sharpness of hatred, its venom drained with each physical encounter, the lust helping to form an understanding that only two men of the same kind can share. Enemy Mine and Brothers in Arms - on two different sides.
This novel spans across over twenty-five years of their lives. It's harsh and violent, but life is cruel and they just do what they need to survive.

- The Administration Series - by Manna Francis
Original Summary: There are no bad guys. There are no good guys. There are only better guys, and worse guys.
One of the worse guys is Val Toreth. In a world where torture is a legitimate part of the investigative process, he works for the Investigation and Interrogation Division.
One of the better guys is Keir Warrick, a corporate director. His small corporation, SimTech, is developing a 'sim' system which places users in a fully-immersive virtual reality.
Their world is the dark future dystopia of New London, where Europe is controlled by a totalitarian bureaucracy, which shares political power with powerful corporations. The oppressive government uses torture, violence and the various Divisions of the feared Department of Internal Security to maintain power. The corporations fight amongst themselves, using lethal force under the euphemism of 'corporate sabotage', uniting only to resist attempts by the Administration to extend its control over them.
The series follows Warrick and Toreth, and their families, friends and enemies as they struggle to survive and hope to prosper.
