17 year old Akimoto Tsubaki is a young woman who, due to her life being mostly filled with darkness, grew up emotionally hiding herself from others for the sake of everyone's protection, including her own. Taking on a cold, harsh, and distant exterior personality but truly with a kind, frightened, and insecure interior personality, she feels that she will always be alone.
After living a life of alienation and shattered hopes due to two peculiar curses that had been put on her at a young age, she finally makes a wish to the universe. This wish would allow her to somehow find her soul mate to end her loneliness as well as a world away from all the pain--as cliche as its sounds, discover a happily ever after. She then suddenly meets a mysterious old woman who offers to make her wish come true, but only if Aki agrees to a contract. With little to no hesitation, Aki agrees, believing that her wish was something worth fighting for.
No matter what the cost... No matter what it takes...
Her life couldn't possibly sink any lower than it had, so she only had one shot at happiness.
And thus, she is thrown into a quest, traveling to different worlds to try and make her wish come true. It is through this journey that Aki discovers more than she bargained for, physically and mentally, almost enough to discourage her away from her goal, and yet she still fights.
With her ever-growing powers being unlocked, Aki soon realizes that she's an instrument of the universe, finding out that she's the last resort to the its survival. Somewhere along the way she unravels the secret and history behind the universe as well as her true origins which may have something to do with the curses on her.
But with incredible powers comes sacrifice. Aki struggles as she deals with constantly leaving friends behind after forming her first real relationships; resulting in the erasing of precious memories. She has to fight with her unstable, dark emotions and memories as well as forces that try to kill her or consume her soul.
Fighting to achieve her wish means doing whatever it takes to reach for the purity and spark of Light, or else sink in the abyss of Darkness for all eternity.

I am a 21 year old college student in my fifth year of university majoring in Psychology and minoring in Creative Writing. I'm studying to have a PhD (or...maybe PsyD...not sure which one I want yet) as a Behavior Therapist mainly for children. At the moment, I am striving towards becoming a Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA). After that I'm planning on getting my Masters and Doctorate!
I'm blessed to have the opportunity to attend university and work towards an awesome future. So I will try my best!
I am a proud Christian who is unafraid of announcing to the world my love for our Savior Jesus Christ. I believe that He died on the cross for all of our sins and conquered the grave and is alive as we speak! He is my best friend, my shepherd, my rock, and my guardian light. I'm doing my best to make Him proud and I want to spread love, kindness, and tolerance as much as I can! No matter who you are, you are important to me and to our Heavenly Father <3

I am a HUGE anime fan and have been watching anime since I was 5--I've seen about 145 series (give or take a few). I havent been able to watch many new ones due to school, but when i get a chance to watch anime, i take it! I have many favorites, so it's a long list. If you're interested in knowing what they are, just ask ^_^
The anime that have had the biggest influences/inspirations for me include: Fushigi Yuugi, DBZ, Sailor Moon, Slayers, Ouran High School Host Club, Shugo Chara, Elfin Lied, Petite Princess Yucie, Super Gals, Kodocha, and Inuyasha. My favorites list is much more expansive that that (i just wont bother you with it XD) but these anime have had the biggest impact on my life in some aspects~
My favorite non anime shows include: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Avatar the Last Airbender, Legend of Korra, Pretty Little Liars, Code Lyoko, Adventure Time, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Kim Possible, Danny Phantom, NCIS, Ghost Adventures (although i cant watch it nowadays cuz the content began to give me nightmares ^^"), and quite a few more!
I'm also a fan of the let's player Markiplier on YouTube as well as the sketch comedy of Studio C and the DBZ abridged series by Team Four Star. I'm also a fan of the Nostalgia Critic.
I love Disney movies! My favorite will always be The Lion King! My favorite princesses are Tiana, Mulan, Belle, Merida, and Megara.
My other favorite movies are: How to Train Your Dragon (1 & 2), the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, Harry Potter movies, Hunger Games movies, anything Studio Ghibli (my favorite is Kiki's Delivery Service), Prince of Egypt, Joseph: King of Dreams, most Marvel movies, and some others
My favorite novels/book series are: Maxiumum Ride, Vampire Academy, House of Night, and Animorphs (i've read and liked more books, i just cant remmeber them off the top of my head~)
I like to create new characters and their backstories! Fandom OCs are fun to create!
I draw with an Intuos Pen and Touch Tablet The digital art programs I use are: Paint Tool Sai, Clip Studio Paint, Photoshop Elements, and ArtRage. As for now I dont do speedpaints or tutorials.
I am the creator of the fanfiction Love Hurts 5 Ways (which you can clearly see with the left side of my profile and all XD). Its a crossover of Fushigi Yuugi with Ouran High School Host Club, Inuyasha, Fruits Basket, and D.N.Angel (although its mostly Fushigi Yuugi). Its been my dream to create such a story for MANY years now (since i was in middle school) and I'm happy that it has come this far along. Its partially a written fanfiction because i used to want to be an author...but that feeling has passed so chapters 46 and up will be drawn and uploaded here.
Seeing this story through to the end is one of my biggest dreams and I pray that I get to do just that. And I also pray that people enjoy it...especially since I've put so much thought and love into it. I just want to share it with the world ^^
If you have the time, please check it out!
Please don't ask me...
to look at/critique/comment on your art, characters, story/fanfic. =====> I don't have the time to comment on the art of people I already watch, so it's sort of unfair for me to comment on someone else. Also, I comment on who and what I want to and I'd just rather not be asked. I'm not saying this to be mean, I just don't have the time and I also don't like being put into a corner where I feel bad if I don't comply. So please dont ask ^^" to give you points to advertise for you for an art trade. I have VERY strict standards when it comes to art trades and I only do them on rare occassions. and I hate turning people down...so please dont ask ^^" To include your character in my story. It's nothing personal. I just have everything mapped out and dont want to squeeze another element in there. to RP/roleplay. I'm not very good at it...and it takes a bunch of time that I dont have. for me to teach you how to draw. I'm flattered that people have asked me this, but i really do not know how to provide an answer. I'm also not the greatest teacher. Also, when i first joined DA, I aksed another artist how they drew the way they did. They refused to tell me, saying that it was something for me to find out and discover, my own journey. At first that aggrivated me, but as time went on i understood. I've found my way of doing things but it didnt happen just like that. I practied and practiced and studied the techniques of other artists and observed many artworks. Even now I am nowhere close to perfect but i'm steps beyond where i was 3 years ago. You can do it too! I believe in your abilities. However if you want any sort of technical help, feel free to check out the tutorials I've got collected in my favorites. I have favorited A LOT of them. I hope they aid you in your journey!
I love making new friends , so if you ever wanna chat or ask me something, dont be afraid to do so! I might not be able to respond immediately, but I try my best to answer back as soon as i can. My virtual door is always open to you lovely people. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my art and my page!
<== (trades only on rare occasions)
These artists are so incredibly TALENTED! I fell in love with their art on first sight and now they're incredible inspirations for me.
Hopefully one day, I'll be somewhat as good as you guys. Thanx for being so amazing and giving me something to work towards! I'll continue to work hard at my own style and perhaps we'll be equals one day...just maybe.

For all you who are stopping by my profile to do so,

To be completely honest, i'd also appreciate less thanx for favs and llamas to avoid me getting over-excited about messages in my inbox >.>
