A little bit more about myself, apart from what's listed above. I'm an objectivist, atheist, and can be rather cynical when it comes to other people.
It takes a while for me to trust anyone, but once I do, I stick with you unless you happen to do something excruciatingly bad that takes all my confidence in you away. Luckily, that's only happened once.
I'm generally pretty cheerful, mainly because I see no point in wasting time being upset. I help people out when I can because it's not bothering me in any way. On the other hand, I never lend anyone pencils or money, and it's rare for me to really go out of my way for someone I don't know.
If I stay in one house too long (four years is my maximum, and that's pushing it), I begin to get incredibly uneasy. I'm a bit worried how this will affect me once I have to pay for the airfares myself, which won't be too long now.
The only thing I really fear is not being able to control my own mind or body (ie, mental disorder, being drunk, drugs). I suppose that's a good thing, in a way.
I'm determined to get at least one of my original stories published. I just have to finish it first. Also, I love to read. Fantasy, science-fiction, historical fiction, nonfiction...The only two that I don't care for are romance and mystery, and certainly not romantic mystery.
I only like simple, unrealistic romance. The most complicated that I can stand is that of Leia's and Han's in Star Wars, and that's really not much. And it can't be the main point of a story.
I don't read/watch Naruto anymore. However, I'm staying here for the community (which I still love) and in hopes of finishing some of my fanfics, namely The Shinobi Effect and Into the Mist.
Also, I just now noticed that most of my fics are dark...huh. That's a bit creepy. I promise I'm not [usually] that creepy in real life. So if you want to just chat with me, I really won't chop your head off.

Awesome chapter, if only a bit confusing. 10/10, anyways!

Again, a good chapter! It's great to finally see a fic that's non-yaoi, too. Keep it up..10/10! Can't wait for the next chapter!

Date: 24/07/07 Title: Chapter 1: ugly little dead-fish-belly-feet
You need more faith in your writing- it's really interesting. I haven't seen many Hanabi-centric stuff. The 'dead-fish-belly-feet' phrase is very imaginative (though the first time I read it, I imagined Hanabi with dead fish as feet. XD).
I'd read more of your stuff, but I don't read yaoi. :
-- Archaic Aphorism : I understand completely. I actually wasn\'t expecting you to read any of my stuff, so this is a pleasant surprise. Thanks for reviewing.

Excellent. The rhyming is there, but so well done that it doesn't scream "hey look! Look! I'm rhyming!!" which is nice. It is sad, but also hopeful...again, very good.
-- Swords_and_Bandages : Thanks. I don\'t like forced rhymes, either... when it comes to poetry, I\'m focused on how everything flows. Sadly, I rarely, if ever, come up with something like this. It\'s hard to get inspired to write something like this. I hope you can get lots of inspiration while you\'re writing.
