Gray Realm                                                                

 

On this page, you will primarily find my various writings. From fanfiction to poetry,

from continuations, to completely new ideas, whatever enters my little brain and

I decide to write is on this page. Besides that, I plan on adding other stuff, like

information on things that interest me, pictures, music, whatever catches my fancy.

This site is still heavily under construction however, and it's my first website ever, so please bear with me and report any broken links or errors.

And please sign my guestbook if you have the time!

Thank you, and enjoy.

Updates

4/6/02

Okay, another update, this one's pretty big actually...

-Added chapter 5 of Fallen Star to the Crossover section

-Added chapter 2 of Run Away in the Crossover section

-Added a new story called "Lionheart" to the crossover section. It's a Final Fantasy 7 and 8 crossover.

-Revised Heirloom prologue and chapter 4 slightly

Again, sorry for taking longer then I said. Here's the update for today:

-Added prologue, revised Parts 1-3, and Part 4 of Heirloom in the Ranma section

-Changed the music

-Added a new link

-On a side note, the game Virtua Fighter 4 just came out. I heartily recommend it if you own a PS2 and are a fighting game nut. It's tough though, so be warned. I give it an 8.5 out of 10.

 

3/12/02

Sorry, for taking so long with this update, a lot of computer problems combined with writer's block and my own laziness are the culprits. But enough about that, here's the new stuff:

-Added a new chapter for Fallen Star in the Crossover's section

-Added a new Lunar story in the Video Games section

-Changed the music as always

Look for another update very shortly, possibly in a day or two...until then!

 

  2/19/02

Not a massive update, but I'm working on a lot of stuff right now, both fanfic and school related, so sorry about that. Anyway, on with the update.

-Added a new Golden Sun story. It's in the Video Games section.

-Changed the music

That's all! Until next time...

2/12/02

This is where update information will go in the future. For now I just want to say thanks for visiting. Make yourself at home.

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Music

You are currently listening to a song called "To Far Way Times" from the game Chrono Trigger, by Squaresoft naturally. An old one but an excellent song regardless. Anyway, the song is once again done by Yosunori Mitsuda, one of my favorite composers, who has done Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross, Xenogears, and several other game soundtracks. I will probably change the music for this site roughly once a week, so check in every now and then and see what's playing! And if you want a particular song for yourself, or have a request for one on the page, just e-mail me!

Fanfiction

Otherwise known as blatantly ripping off things that belong to others illegally, well, it would be if the author actually made money off of it, which I can assure you we do not. This makes up the bulk of the site at the moment, and is separated into many categories. The biggest being Crossovers right now. Have a look, you might find something interesting. Oh, and series that have only one fic to them are placed into the Misc. category.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Ranma 1/2

 

This is where all of my fanfiction for the anime series known as Ranma 1/2 by Rumiko Takahashi can be found. Besides being probably my overall favorite anime and manga, Ranma 1/2 defines what creativity is all about. From the sheer wackiness of some parts, to the loveable yet flawed characters, to the quirky and sweet romances. This series speaks out to each of us. Each and every character is special in his or her own way. Ranma himself, the main character, is a literal representation of the concept of yin and yang. I strongly urge anyone who hasn't seen or read Ranma 1/2 to do so, as it is the definitive anime in my opinion.

 

 Favorite Ranma couples at the moment:

Ranma and Kasumi
 

Konatsu and Ukyo
 

Ranma and Akari

Ranma and Ukyo
 

Subject to change depending on my mind changing.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Heirloom

We all have dreams. Dreams of the future, dreams of what we want to do with that future. For some of us, we have something to represent those dreams. It can be anything really. Some item that might be seen as silly to one could very well be the thing that gives us hope for the future. That single item might be the one thing that allows us to keep smiling and carry on even when things seem to be falling apart around us. So what happens when that item is destroyed? And by someone we care for? Presented for your enjoyment is my first Ranma 1/2 fanfiction ever published.

Maison Ikkoku

    

Welcome to the Maison Ikkoku section of my page. Here you will find fanfiction by me from the wonderful, yet usually overlooked series by Rumiko Takahashi. Many find this series boring, as it does not have world threatening aliens, or deep philosophical discussions, or even a decent fight. But I personally believe that therein lies its greatest strength. A perfectly ordinary story, that strikes a chord in anyone who's ever experienced love. The struggles of Yusaku Godai, and his pining for the beautiful yet mysterious Kyoko Otonashi makes one shake their head in sympathy. Maison Ikkoku doesn't have the elements that make other anime successful, but that doesn't matter, because it stands on its own merits. And they are numerous indeed.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Guy in Room Number Five

It's all about choices. Life is determined by our decisions. But sometimes its not just our life that's affected by our choices. When Kyoko Otonashi, widow and manager of Maison Ikkoku makes a fateful choice of who she wants to marry, it sends Yusaku Godai into five days of seemingly endless hell. But perhaps there is a light at the end of the tunnel for the young former ronin. The light in room number five…

All My Life

What would you do if you got something you always wanted, but it turned out that maybe it wasn't what you wanted after all? When Yusaku Godai, bitter over Kyoko's mixed signals, and seemingly endless devotion to her dead husband, gets sent to the past, he finds himself becoming a much more respected individual, and an object of affection to a younger Kyoko. But does he want the younger, or the older version of his manager? Of course, he also has to try and cope with all the changes the years can make. The Maison Ikkoku of the past is a lot different than the one of the future...

Crossover Fanfiction

 

Here I have archived all the work I have done for what is perhaps my favorite genre of fanfiction. That of the crossover fic. I just love to combine series, particularly in romantic ways. Crossover couples are lots of fun, and can sometimes be better matches than couples within canon. Anyway, this will probably be the largest fanfiction section on my page, but enough talk, come in and enjoy.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Current fave
crossover couples:
Ranma and Belldandy
Ranma and Kyoko

The Truth About Kasumi

A Ranma/Ah! Megami-Sama! story

What if the one you had finally grown to love turned out to be someone else? Would that person still be the one you cared for, or a stranger? Presented here for your hopeful enjoyment is my first crossover fanfiction, and my personal favorite fic that I have written.

Video Game Fanfiction

This is where all of my Video game fanfiction is stored. I've been playing games since the days of the original NES, but have only recently started to write about them. Although the advent of newer and more powerful systems is great and all, I've always preferred a good story or gameplay to great graphics or effects. So I tend to favor older games and especially RPG's, as they are the best genre in my opinion. Anyway, on with the fics.

All's Fair...

A Suikoden story

Lives are forever shattered by it, and even children are drawn into it at times. When two young men, friends since childhood, are sucked into a war between two countries, and become the leaders of the opposing sides, it seems that their friendship is lost for good in the ashes of conflict, but when they war, not only over land, but over the same woman whom they both love, it will change things between them forever...
