I have a favor to ask. If you send me a review, could you please use proper grammar? I do not very much like having to strain my brain to understand the content of a review. No offense to those of you who like typing that way, but I am not a teenager. I don’t think it is too much to ask to write in words so that I can actually understand you. Not using caps and punctuation every time it is called for is one thing, but to butcher the spelling of words makes me seriously just want to delete the review. For example, when referring to if someone is aware of something it is spelled "know" not "now." The word "know" means that they have the knowledge, "now" means currently happening. Most browsers come with a spell check feature. If I have to spend over a minute deciphering what every word in the review says, it is highly unlikely that I will respond to it. I realize this might cause a drop in the amount of review I receive, but I am seriously tired of receiving reviews that seem to have been written by a lizard.
I am Ayuri from A Single Spark.
So, um I hate writing these thingies. But I was looking at my profile and it occurred to me that it really didn't fit me all that much anymore. But grrrr I hate writing these things. I feel like I'm filling out a personal ad or something.
Well, I guess I should say that I am a female writer in her 20s. I graduated from college last year with a degree in English/Creative Writing and a minor in Studio Art. I love writing fanfiction even if I can't make any money off of it. I've written several original works, but since I'm currently trying to get them published, they won't be released online anywhere at the moment. At the moment, my main source of income is the money I get modeling for a local art museum in my hometown. But I'm trying to find a job in either the english or art fields. Originally I was an Art major with an English minor and I only switched because I couldn't afford to be an Art major. As far as art goes, I mostly draw using pencil or pastel, but I sometimes paint as well.
I also have other non Sess/Kag stories on Fanfiction.net and Mediaminer.org. My username on both sites is inukaglover815. And before you ask, the username inukaglover815 was created years ago when I was in middle school and I'm just too lazy to change it even though I prefer the Sess/Kag pairing. ^_^
Oh and I always love the chance to read other people's work. However, I only read completed works. I'm sure you all know what it's like to get to the climax of a story only to have the author decide to discontinue the story and so therefore I prefer to wait until a story is finished before I start reading it. But if you have something you would like me to read please feel free to message me about it. ^_^
Also, I apologize if there are any errors or confusing places in my stories. My beta lost her computer last year and I haven't been able to find someone else I feel comfortable editing my stories. I try to read through each chapter before I post it to catch any errors, but sometimes I miss them since my mind will read it as a complete though even if it isn't. So, if you find errors in my story, feel free to point them out. I'm always up for constructive criticism since that's the best way to better my writing skills. Anyways, thanks and I hope you enjoy my stories! ^_^

Hi there. I wanted to let you guys know the reason for my lack of update and my lack of response to reviews. I haven’t had a very good year or so. In the summer of 2012, one of my cats was injured and even though the cut was minor, she took months to heal. And once she finally did heal, she began getting abscesses and then in September, shortly after my last update, she died. Then I got a job creating an anime character for a music video, but it fell through. And then in January, my other cat died and given the way it appeared she simply gave up the will to live, I suspect she died because she could no longer to bear to live without her sister. My babies had been with me for twelve years and so I was devastated by their deaths. I know that I am prone to making excuses for not updating, but I felt that you guys deserved a reason for my absence.
