ShoujoAddict, The Contributor
Hi there, assuming you've come to see this profile implies you would want to know something about me. Well I'm your regular loquacious, nerdy, science loving, anime addicted, college going person. I like reading, poetry and writing a lot so expect some works from me...(if I ever finish them that is.)
A quatrain fills a little space,
Although it’s pretty small,
And often times, as in this case,
It has no point at all.
Some quotes that sound good to me:
"If you don't have time to read, you don't have time to write."
"Write without fear, edit without mercy."
"If I waited for perfection I would never write a word."
“I define science fiction as the art of the possible. Fantasy is the art of the impossible”
"Nothing in this world exists except atoms and empty space; everything else is just specualtion."
"May you live all the days of your life."
"Love is a serious mental disease."
"All that we see and seem is just a dream within a dream."
-Edgar Allan Po
"Everything that lives is designed to end. We are perpetually trapped in a never-ending spiral of life and death. Is this a curse? Or some kind of punishment? I often think about the god who blessed us with this cryptic puzzle...and wonder if we'll ever get the chance to kill him."
-2B, Nier Automata.
"If you want to live a happy life tie it to a goal not to people or things."
Who will believe my verse in time to come,
If it were fill’d with your most high deserts?
Though yet, heaven knows, it is but as a tomb
Which hides your life and shows not half your parts.
If I could write the beauty of your eyes
And in fresh numbers number all your graces,
The age to come would say “This poet lies;
Such heavenly touches ne’er touch’d earthly faces.”
So should my papers, yellowed with their age,
Be scorn’d like old men of less truth than tongue,
And your true rights be term’d a poet’s rage
And stretched metre of an antique song:
But were some child of yours alive that time,
You should live twice, in it and in my rhyme.
The trees are in their autumn beauty,
The forest paths are dry,
Under the October twilight a water,
Mirrors the still sky.
Charles IV, king of Bohemia and holy roman emperor was considered one of the most influential and successful rulers of his time. However, not all of his decisions were wise...
Special thanks to mazardark for his advice on historical combat, and to cricket for beta reading.
Also, this is an entry to Corgi's unofficial contest of the lords and my first story on the site.
This fan fiction is based on 'Kimi Ni Todoke' a manga series. If you don't want your experience with the manga to be spoiled then please do not read this.
To any fellow otaku fans out there I apologize if I'm not able to give you the level of depth you experience from the actual manga(since I'm nowhere near the level of Karuho Shiina)but nevertheless I hope you like this.
To all other readers, well if you know about the series it certainly would help to better grasp and "feel" the story, but if you don't want to go through the painstaking effort of reading scans from the net (and ruining your laptop with viruses) then you can treat this as an individual story too; that being said I highly recommend you read the series later though.
Hope you enjoy!

You can probably find a second hand one at e-bay, it’ll be cheap.

Any plans for a season 2?

Looks cool, Der; well at least the description sounds cool(although a bit short and simplistic). Let’s see how the story is.

Well, I already read and reviewed this before; so I guess I’ll properly take part in the Book four thread, but anyway my review:
Wonderful story, great imagery and building of character personalities. As far as historical accuracy goes, I found every point was accurate. The "shooting competitions" at the Yangtz river, support of John Rabe to the refugees of Nanking, the fliers dropped ordering surrender in 24 hours; to name a few were historically accurate. Also, the backstory at the start was very informative and well written. I observed very little to no typos in the whole story. The best part about this were the realistic emotions of the protagonist. How the different choices we make changes her views drastically, the emotions and feelings she felt when her family was murdered. In fact, the fact that the characters were very well developed, to a point where they meant something to the reader and when they were suddenly murdered; the pang and guilt that the protagonist felt could really resonate with the reader. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

You might want to go through this article too, after you’re done with the others.

My guess is it’s most likely Kar.

(I attempted a poem in French, and yes it’s very bad... need your advice
Quelquefois je pense,
quel vais-je faire, aujourd’hui?
combien de peuples,
vais-je renconter aujourd’hui?
je ne voulois pas,
je vais être là!
Là, une surface, où,
je vais être hereuse,
je vais être, vraiment,
dans pays de mervellieux!
je voulois renconter,
dans mon esprit...
Sometimes I think that,
What will I do today?
How many people,
Will I meet today?
I will go there,
There a place where,
I will be happy,
I will truly be in,
meet a lot of people,
and meet nobody,
in my mind...

We’ll surely miss your hilariously retarded behaviour, being stupid enough to enter two contests at once; and the way you’ve wasted Mizal’s time in trying to improve you. May Satan have mercy on your soul.(Unless you plan on making an alt or something.)
