Author has written 16 stories for General, Fantasy, and Supernatural.
Hey, I am Shaitanah. I've been writing stories since forever.
I'd say that my preferable genre is general. Mostly because it combines all other genres. I usually pick that category for my own stories. It might seem that it's a rather faceless genre; however, what I love about it is a combination of romance, slice of life, poetry and fantasy - and all that can be blended into a healthy mix that would make a general story.
I love SLASH. Moreover, I read and write slash. So, if you're offended by it, we have different ways. Sorry.

Tolkien, Dune by Frank Herbert (esp. the first 4 parts), Jonathan Strange and Mister Norrell by Susanna Clark, The Line of Beauty by Allan Hollinghurst, The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice, anything by J.D.
