What to say? I really love writing and listening to music. If you are interested I provided links to FanFiction which has some other works of mine and Best Ever Albums where I publish music charts and reviews. My writing is heavily anime inspired, but they are my original ideas and characters.

I got my start online back in 2010 on FanFiction, writing a Naruto FanFiction called the Naruto Spoofing. It was a moderate success and I enjoy writing it. But for as long as I can remember, I've wanted to write original stories. I found fictionpress about a year or two later through working on FanFiction and felt that it looked like a great platform to post my stories as well as read and share other people's stories. I'm not always on here, partly because school takes priority right now, but I'd like to try to breathe some life back into this site and review whatever stories catch my eye.

I've been writing pretty consistently since I came here, working on making my stories exactly how I've always visioned them to be. But you'll have to forgive me if updates may be slow or maybe even nonexistent at times. I used to try to get weekly updates out for many stories, but now I'd rather focus my time on one story at a time and make each chapter the best it can be before I publish it.

My main work is this series of books I call Apple. So far the only one that is up is the first volume, The Magic Shop. This will be a long and interesting series with many characters and branching storylines. If I could compare it to anything I'd say imagine a cross between One Piece and Ranma 1/2. There's a lot of humor, romance, and quirky characters, but the more time you invest in this world the more you'll see that nothing really is how it appears to be.

I think my writing is different than a lot of other stuff out there. I like to give everything I write a bit of a comedic edge while also trying to make character interaction the focus of my work. I believe that a well-rounded, relatable character will keep people wanting to come back. I like flawed characters, characters that feel like they just don't belong. I admire Harry, Hermione, and Ron's strong friendship throughout the later half of the Harry Potter series, but there's something really nice about taking several characters with nothing in common, that maybe even hate each other and trying to develop their relationship slowly over the series. It makes the friendship more believable in my opinion.
