Heyo. This fanfic profile is the fruit of many years of being on here. You may see I have a lot of stories; many of them are old and the fruits of my turmoil when I was younger. The more upwards you go in recency, the better quality the stories would likely be. Currently, my main story is A Kitten In A World Of Heroes (AKIWOH), where Killua from Hunter x Hunter lands up in the MHA world and consequences abound.

Other updating stories:
A Look Into Another Life -an SI-OC into My Hero Academia, a sort of fantasy-mystery mix

A (Not-so)Calm Descent into Evil -a younger Izuku faces the manipulation of AFO and attempted conversions into villainy

Flailing to Fly -Bakugo Katsuki ends up in the world of One Piece, falling from the sky and into the ocean during the kickoff of the Alabasta arc

Terrible Irony -an OC-narrated HP-FMA crossover, where Ed and Al end up in the HP world at eleven and ten years of age after the transmutation

please read/watch all of these favorite things because they are very good

Favorite Books:
Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson,
Dawn of Wonder by Jonathan Renshaw,

My Teen Romantic Comedy is All Wrong, As I Expected - I learned a lot from this


5/14/21: Finished with finals, wrapping things up. Planning to head out on the Appalachian Trail soon, upon which I'll go dark for a month. Just working on final tidbits and trying to get some chapters out before then too. I recently also watched My Teen Romantic Comedy is All Wrong, As I Expected -- I highly recommend it, it's very good and taught me a lot of things. It's a... surprisingly deep anime and at least for me when I got further down into it it turned kind of hard, but it really resolved itself and trundled through to do it without pulling the punches or coming up with neat solutions and I really admire that. I don't want to say much more than that, except that it's good and you should watch it.

4/26/21: In the throes of finals, doing my best to relax and live life still. Good luck to any fellow students out there facing the beast.

1/17/21: Discovered the FFnet app. It actually really looks good, and I have to admire the devs for the work they put into it. There's some problem with PM syncronization between the app and the website, but I'm at least happy to now be able to make edits to my story on my phone. Story-status wise, AKIWOH is progressing and the next chapter should be out in a little bit. I've mostly been working on chapters that occur much later in Part 2, so it'll be a while before you see the entirety of what I've been working on recently. :) But hopefully you guys will enjoy the story unfolding, I've been having a lot of fun writing it and have found ways for important things to be said.

1/12/21: Tired. Happy it's 2021. Also very bad at responding currently.

10/11/20: Discovered FictionPress (I have the same profile name on there). I'll probably be hanging around there a bit.

9/?/20: "Writer's block is like having constipation. The more effort you put in, the less it wants to come out." - currently me


I am an engineering student with an interest in programming. That is, I can sit at the computer working day and night for a week straight until my bottom side aches and I grow a crick in my neck while my eyes remain hyperfocused on the screen and my daydreams become programs too and I wake up in the middle of the night thinking about a solution to a problem I was debugging. I can do that with writing too, though not quite with the same intensity. :):) Writing typically fills my thoughts when I'm on hour-long car drives. I don't think the two are very dissimilar -- writing Python or writing English, what's the difference other than the language and intent?

Then, I am also interested in biochemistry, medicine, and environment resource management stuff, so some of that will probably be reflected in my stories. I like to make analytical analyses in my stories to try to teach my young padawan readers a something or other sneakily too, because I always liked learning about science and history and humanistic traits while reading and would like to pass that on too. That's the dream, anyway, I've only started implementing it in practice now though.

So that's me.

This is the full cover image, before I chopped it down to pieces so that it's actually seen well in the little fanfic thumbnail picture.

Sparkle #2. A wise quote

"I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. Exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience." ~José Micard Teixeira

This, I think, something that often happens as we grow older and can perhaps do well to realize when we are younger too, if we feel such intolerance. It is a choice for what you spend time and energy on, real commodities of the soul -- though I must qualify, that this strictness of personal boundary does not necessarily come at the cost of empathy.

Sparkle #3. My favorite quote

“I have found that it is the small everyday deed of ordinary folks that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love." ~ Gandalf


You can be as BRUTAL as you want. (Just say "hi" before you start your brutalism and I'll like you better.) I learn the most from critical reviews, even from people who just flat-out didn't like my story but explained why, and the reason why I post on this site, is to learn. I also like seeing everyone's perspectives and reactions on things, because then I can better understand how a story might translate into someone else's mind -- a lot of times, when someone says something in a review, it really surprises me because I just saw it in a completely different way.

So don't be afraid to brutalize my story or comment on your opinions or perspective honestly. I might not always agree, but I appreciate the honesty and can learn a lot more from it than platitudes. I'm not so young anymore, so I can take it. Throw it at me, whatever you got.
