Author has written 45 stories for Romance, General, and Humor.
Okay, about me: I am female, in college, and I am straight. I have a person in my head (namely Kiyoshi) telling me what to write. I think that's all you guys really need to know. If I like you enough to tell you more, good for you.
At the moment I think I have six stories (of forty one) that are not slash, m/m, yaoi, shounen-ai, whatever you want to call it, at least to some degree. Two are het. One is fem-slash. Three aren't romance. And one of the het stories I posted for my sister. So... yeah. Every single story on my favorites list is slash. So putting all that together... If you don't like slash, I really have no clue why you're reading my profile. :)
Kiyoshi is my muse or my imaginary friend or the person in my head or my hallucination or whatever you want to call him. At any rate, he's the one who's really writing the stories; he's the one calling all the shots; he's the one you can be upset with if something happens in a story that you don't like. And yet, I still like him for some inexplicable reason. So, time for a description of Kiyoshi. Birthday: April 17, 1994. He has dark green eyes and black hair. His hair is generally uneven and falls around his chin area. He is 5'8" and is left-handed. Speaking of Kiyoshi's left hand, he has a poisonous purple-green plant growing out of his left forearm. That's all you really need to know.
Well, as you may have noticed, I have a tendency to ramble. Sometimes endlessly and without a purpose. But that's okay. However, if you all even care, I would like you to know one thing: no matter how much I ramble in author's notes and review responses, I make a conscious effort to make everything in the story have a point. (Although I can't promise I'm always successful.)
ALSO I have a Tumblr, which I use mostly to stalk Sherlock and Harry Potter stuff. The things I post fall into the following four categories: My writing, gay rights/LGBT community stuff, feminist posts, and occasionally suicide prevention posts. The link to my Tumblr is here. So if you have a Tumblr and want more efficient updates on my writing, go ahead and follow me.
Similarly, I have a Twitter account (which I use almost never), but I'll mention it regardless because why not. My username is KiyoshiTanaka1 so feel free to follow me there as well. I have resolved to start using my Twitter on some sort of regular basis, for purposes other than stalking JKR, Tom Felton, and other HP-related things. We'll see how that goes. Here is my Twitter.
Regarding 366 Days: I have had a couple people ask me if there will be a sequel. The answer is, probably not. I do have a few scenes that would take place after the end of the novel, but nothing that could be a novel in and of itself. I might eventually flesh those out and post them here as a collection of drabbles/oneshots, but it won't go further than that. If you're looking for a full-length novel, I have the beginning of Evan's story written. This one (called "Senior Year") is currently on hiatus and may not ever be completed. If enough people read this and ask me to complete it, I might find the inspiration to do so.
Finally, if you have a request for a fic, message me. Here or on Tumblr (if you don't have an account on either of those sites, leave an anonymous review on one of my stories; even though I haven't had time to respond lately, I do read all of them). I may or may not take your request/prompt and if I do, it'll probably only be a oneshot. But I'm seriously lacking in inspiration right now. So... you know. There's that. Also, if you request something and I write your request, I have no idea how long it will take to write. Finally, there are very few things I won't write (scat, golden showers) but there are a few things I'm very particular about. Firstly, incest: I don't particularly like writing it, but I will under certain circumstances; i.e., the individuals must be in the same generation (siblings, cousins, etc., no parent/child or uncle/nephew deals). Secondly... threesomes; please don't request a threesome; I have tried to write them multiple times and they never get posted because they just suck. Lastly (which hopefully goes without saying) I only write romance; and while it is primarily m/m romance, if you have a special request for f/f or het, I am willing to accommodate for that.

COMING SOON (maybe)
I'm working on "Gutting Fish" right now, which I have already started posting, although it's not complete.
The other thing I'm working on is a request fic (see above).
And that's that, if anyone cares in the slightest what I'm working on.
REGARDING PLAGIARISM: I DO NOT APPRECIATE BEING TOLD IT IS UNFAIR THAT IF YOU WANT TO REREAD ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE STORIES, YOU NOW HAVE TO PAY FOR IT. WHILE I APPRECIATE BEING TOLD 366 Days IS ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE STORIES, YOU NEEDING TO PAY FOR IT IS NOT UNFAIR. UNFAIR IS HAVING A STORY I WORKED ON FOR A MONTH STOLEN. I AM NOT ABOUT TO RISK A STORY I SPENT FOUR MONTHS AND WHAT SEEMED TO BE ENDLESS AMOUNTS OF RESEARCH AND REVISION TIME ON. I SERIOUSLY CONSIDERED REMOVING ALL MY STORIES AND CLOSING MY ACCOUNT ALTOGETHER, SO DO NOT TELL ME THAT TAKING DOWN WHAT I CONSIDER MY BEST STORY IN ORDER TO PROTECT IT IS 'UNFAIR.' QUIT THINKING THAT YOUR FEELINGS ARE THE ONLY PERSON'S WHOSE MATTER IN THIS SITUATION. YOU JUST READ IT, A RELATIVELY SIMPLE PROCESS; I PUT A LOT OF EFFORT, TIME AND FEELING INTO THAT STORY AND THOSE CHARACTERS. ACTING AS THOUGH I HAVE WRONGED YOU BY REMOVING THE STORY IS OFFENSIVE; DO NOT TREAT ME AS THOUGH I HAVE STOLEN SOMETHING FROM YOU. GARRETT, RYAN, ERIN, KELLIE AND THE OTHERS BELONG TO ME; I SHARED THEM WITH YOU AND BY TREATING ME AS THOUGH I AM NOT WITHIN MY RIGHTS TO REMOVE THE STORY-as though they belong to you and not me-IS ANOTHER WAY TO TRY AND STEAL THEM FROM ME.
On a side note, I am sorry 366 Days is so d*mn expensive. It is POD (print on demand) which raises the production cost dramatically.
Another thing that I keep getting: 366 Days was not the story that was stolen. 'Dead Wrong' was the story that was plagiarized. I probably would have shut my entire account down if someone stole 366 Days. You know, instead of just throwing a few things (mostly textbooks at the wall) and taking down the story I feel most worth protecting.
Now, as much as I hate those "If you agree or have ever felt this way, repost this" I feel as though I need to. Just this once. Or twice. But they're directly related, and it's at the same time, so it only counts as once.
I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.
I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.
Repost this if you believe homophobia is wrong.
Now, because this piece is just as moving and true as the other one and, in the words of the person whose profile I saw this on, good things happen too...
I am the guy who came out to the entire school in his senior speech and got a standing ovation for his courage.
I am making a difference. Hate will not win if we do not let it. If you agree, repost this.

So, I have all my favorites down at the bottom, but there are a few that I adore to the point that I've read them multiple times (like, more than three). So since those are my absolute most complete favorites, I'll list them again here:
The Violet and the Tom
Love Is Strange
A Suitable Lover
Minuet of the Night
And I've only read this one once, but it made me cry multiple times (and it's hard to make me cry because of a story). It's called 'Chemistry,' and it's about a boy with severe depression and his sort-of-stepbrother.
If you're looking for a Hokshi dictionary or grammatical rules, they are officially posted with the (complete!) Rule 11. I think they are posted as chapter 36 (Grammar and Verbs) and chapter 37 (Dictionary). So if you're looking for the dictionary for EITHER Rule 11 or Abomination, that's where you need to go. :D
Thanks for playing! Better luck next time!
Kiyoshi: What are you talking about?
KT: They didn't win the lottery.
Kiyoshi: They didn't come to your profile to win the lottery.
KT: WHAT?! Oh well. That's probably a good thing because I only have about ten dollars at the moment.
Until we meet again!
