Before you start ragging on me for how I do my list, I'll just say this. I'm on this site for me, not you. I don't care if you think I shouldn't rate a series before I've finished it. I do it to tell me how I've liked it so far. And if I haven't rated it, but it said I've watched it, it probably means that I don't remember exactly how I liked it. Or if I have it on my plan to watch list but it is rated, it probably means I want to watch it again. If you have any questions, comments, concerns or suggestions feel free to message me or write it on my profile. But I don't take uncalled for crap from anyone.
Obviously, since I'm on this site, I'm an anime nerd. Most of the time in the "About Me" sections of a profile, I would talk about anime. Even though you can tell what I like already, I will still blabber. Endulge me.
I'm more into shonen anime but prefer shoujo manga. I think its because I like to see the action play out, but I want to put the levels of emotion I want in romance. Nobuhiro Watsuki, manga-ka of Rurouni Kenshin, is my favorite. He was the one who got me interested in this little slice of Japan, and for that I will be truly greatful.
Yaoi and yuri anime used to not catch my fancy, but now I'm just as likely to ship two characters of the same gender as I would of the opposite. Chemistry and dynamic are more important to me than anything else; I just ship whatever pairings I prefer.
I'm a huge fan of fanfiction (hehe), and I've dabbled around in it myself (another reason for my wild shipping). A friend of mine says if I spend so much time writing stories that I can never get published/make money off of, I shouldn't be doing it. OCs are okay if they are believable and the author didn't suddenly just make the real story's love interest drop off the face of the planet. I've a bunch more I could say, but I won't. Just PM me here or on my fanfic account at http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2026959/xxAwesomeLucyxx
On a more personal (less nerdy) note, I like cats, overcast weather, telling funny stories and playing on the computer. I in my senior year at a university which I shall not name, where I'm double majoring in English and creative writing. Just because I could, I studied Japanese as a minor for five semesters and studied abroad in Japan for a summer; it was one of the coolest experiences of my life, and it gave me an excuse to watch anime whenever I wanted (not that I wouldn't have anyway).
The books I like are about knights, dragons, demons etc. My favorite author is Tamora Pierce. I've read all of her books. Kristin Cashore is also amazing and I want both authors to publish more! As for classic literature, I have to say that Nabokov's "Lolita" was great, even though it was super creepy. Anyone who can make you feel sorry for an obvious pedophile is an amazing author.
I listen to rock and alternative rock, though I can tolerate older country and can get behind some pop music. My favorite bands are I Am Ghost, Three Days Grace, Escape the Fate and the like. My favorite TV shows in no particular order are House, The Mentalist, Leverage and others similar to those.
Feel free to drop me a line; I don't bite, promise. Just don't expect me to accept a random friend request right off that bat. I don't do that.
