Thank you all for your wonderful, kind concern! :) I am very aware that my Princess Tutu story Think Back on Yesterday has been plagiarized by a moron. I'm in the process of trying to determine what I can do about it. I've contacted the Organization for Transformative Works to see if I have any legal standing in the matter.
For over a decade, I have been acquainted with the beloved Perry Mason characters. I have decided to open a blog devoted to my thoughts concerning this television classic. Please visit Objection Overruled for all things Perry-related.

Hmmm. . . . What to say. . . . I am a Japanese animé-loving LDS (Mormon) girl and proud of it! I enjoy some American cartoons too. I prefer more serious ones, though, with lots of beauty and heart. I don't like happy-go-lucky cartoons or ones without plot.
Examples of Japanese shows I like: -Yu-Gi-Oh! (always my #1) -Princess Tutu -Sonic X -Magic Knight Rayearth -Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon -New Mobile Report Gundam Wing
Examples of American shows I like: -My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic -Steven Universe (it practically runs on familial and friendship squee! Seriously, it is totally my kind of show!) -Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987 and 2003 versions, but especially 1987. I also love all movies. Yes, including the Michael Bay ones. Hey, if nothing else, they gave us a Vernon who isn't a complete shallow idiot, and that is a great thing.) -The Batman (surprisingly good and fun. It doesn't deserve the bad rap it gets. Do try it!) -Justice League (three-dimensional characters, solid plots, and amazing voice acting. George Newbern as Superman ... yessss. X3)
In my humble opinion, the world's best video games come from Japan. Case in point: The Final Fantasy series (particularly VII and its compilation), the Kingdom Hearts series, Phoenix Wright, and the Sonic the Hedgehog series. Oh, and Mario.
I'm not crazy about too many recent American cartoons, save for the ones that I listed. They're just not what they used to be, in general. However, some of Disney's old ones are absolute gems. It's amazing, some of the stuff they got away with in TaleSpin and even DuckTales, my two favorites. Darkwing Duck was also awesome in general, though I think Disney's biggest mistake with it was falling back on Warner Brothers' type physical humor. It could have been so much better without any of that.
Likewise, I'm not a big fan of the violence in said Warner Brothers cartoons (in fact, I downright can't stand it). However, I love some of the characters, and some of the dialogue in those old cartoons was priceless.
Writing is my passion and I'm always working on something or another. I find friendships and other platonic relationships much more fascinating than romance, in general, and it's very rare that I will write anything that isn't platonic. However, there are a few certain romantic pairings that I am devoted to, such as Zack/Aerith and Seto/Téa (the latter of which is the pairing I can never get away from).
I also adore the YGO anime-only characters and arcs. They deserve love too! Support the filler arcs, people!
And these are called lovebars. All three of these were made by incosmiccaravan
I probably shouldn't keep the broken colorbars listed at all, but I'm kind of sad to take them away, since at least it can be known that I had some for those characters too. Maybe I can find where I still might have copies of them and reupload....
