Hello, Hallo, Bonjour, Hola, Ni hao, Geia sou, Dia, Ciao, Moshimoshi, Kon'nichiwa, Ave, Swasdi...
I can't physically think of any more greetings off the top of my head so I shall leave it there and get on with the rest of the basic formalities of a profile page.

Why hello there, mysterious profile reader. Here I go by the name Zukafu Chirimoarimoto because pseudonyms are cool.
Oh, who am I kidding? Names in general, names are cool; full stop. I like names.

Another thing that I like is a good old mug of tea. No matter how stereotypical that may or may not be of me.

But this isn't supposed to be a list of my likes. This is supposed to be about the writing, write?
(Puns are also unfortunately on my list of likes too so be prepared for wordplay at its finest)

So yes, if you fancy doing the deed by reading some of my personal works then look downwards.

Otherwise, fair winds fello word mariner, until we cross paths again,
Zukafu


Yikes, I'm coming up to 10 years on Fictionpress I'm starting to feel old - does this mean I qualify for some special veteran discount? No? Aww, man.



-- May the writing force be with you this session and onward! --

I read a lot, so you're most likely to find me lurking about in the 'New in' section, trying to uphold the vows of the reviewer's crusade - and then some. (Don't know what I mean by that? Go check them out in the forums.) I also make serious efforts to try and review everything I read as I know well the feeling of seeing lots of views but no reviews in comparison. It's a sad time for us writers. All in all, trying to be one of those handy, helpful users that makes this site an alright place. Imagine a thumbs up emoji here.

675 signed reviews and counting!

I don't bite either. I like receiving messages and I try to be as friendly as the next person. If you need a hand at all, I'll certainly try my best. Being a busy bee, I may take time to respond to things but please don't be put off - I get around to most things eventually. Prompt me with a PM if necessary.


So, what I have to say about what I have going on here...

Whoops, I wrote something for Valentines Day. How gooey of me. Blame the twosome that won't get out of my head for that. Maybe once a certain adventure is finished, I can finally introduce them and their tale?

~ Crescent Island
My little adopted baby. We've been through a long journey together from its very first draft but hopefully all for the better. The copy on here will need another redraft. What can I say, I want to make more creative changes since I started posting five years ago. But for now, I'm trying to finish telling this my way. It deserves that after this crazy decade.
(So then I can move onto the sequel? Whaaaaaaaat)

~ Mysterieux
Another baby I've had for a long time. 23rd February - my official 10th anniversary of this piece.

~ Glasdon Gems

Currently on a Break:
~ Monochrome.
~ Gemini's Call
~ Girl Hater (maybe the current long wait has been purposeful?)

Completed:

~ Call me by my name~ A-shh's big sisser
~ Crying at the Moon
~ All my everlasting love
~ Frigid~ Joris en de Draken
~ Kid Taker
~ Good Morning Human
~ The Puppy's Idea of a Hug
~ Conflict
~ Fading
~ Verisimilitude
~ Watch Your Six

Near-definite Hiatus or Dropped:
~ My Snippets Collection (Any stuff that I posted now tends to be placed in its own document so...)
~ Moonlight Shadow (I cannot access my old files for this. If I can, then be able to polish up with 10 years additional writing skill, maybe it will return)
~ Mysterieux (dropped the original version because its being remastered. Go look! It's shiny and has things like character development and description - wow!)

Plus many other side thingiemajingies that may one day make an appearance here...

Mysterieux reviews
Not so long ago, a string of disasters threatened the lives and prosperity of those in the peaceful country of Mysterieux. Now, whilst normality seems to finally be returning, the worst disaster of them all is looming once again. And this time, instead of thousands, the whole country might be at risk unless something can be done about before it happens.

I love you too reviews
She picked up her phone from the bedside table, peering a glance at the time. 02:43. She stared up at the ceiling. She knew exactly why she couldn't sleep. She was sharing a bed with it. Again...

Crescent Island reviews
"Serene Cade Crescent, will return to the island with the gift in hand." Serene's rather simple life spirals out of control when she has to leave her home and find a powerful item that could be devastating in the wrong hands. She's pretty strong, she's pretty fast, but she doesn't think that is going to help her do something as big as save the world...

What have you done? reviews
I looked around. All alone with the damning silence. I felt like this whole time I was running from some monster… Had I been wrong? Had the terror always been closer than I realised? Along the breeze, drifting like a delicate autumn leaf, came a shrill voice. "Alis," it called. "Alis, what have you done?" ... Rated T for blood reference.

Crying at the moon reviews
"Imagine yourself in some stuffy saloon, loud, raucous and full of plenty of drunks. You push through the masses to get to the bar only to see the tender away. You huff but you know he'll be back before long. Suddenly the place falls silent... An interlude plays before the girl begins to sing..." A country-style ballad/song about a woman's loss (with an extra narrative part too).

Monochrome reviews
"Upon reflection, standing outside my flat, shivering violently, was one of the better moments of the night. If only I could have appreciated it a little more at the time; or better yet, done myself the huge favour of going in, locking the door and making a cuppa instead. But no, I muttered a curse and stayed put, waiting..."
