Hey everyone! My name is Water Dragon's Wing on fanfiction, but you can call me WaterD.

I have been in the MKR fandom for a little over a year, but I have used fanfiction for over 4 years. I've been looking for a forum or something. BAM! I became friends with milieva and then she directed me over to this. I hope we have loads of fun! (and perhaps debates? XD)

I'm fourteen years old and in eighth grade (sound familiar?) So milieva likes to call me the 'baby' of the fandom. Goo goo gaga. *wry look*
As long as you don't count Pokemon or Avatar, Magic Knight Rayearth is my first legitimate anime.

I have a passion for writing and plan to take an advanced course towards it and excel past peers. (I'm already the top writing level at my school ._.; )

If you have any questions, poke me on my aim account soopercooper66@yahoo.com or just email me there. My aim account may be Water Dragon's Wing but I'm honestly not sure.

Nice to be here!

Pokemon's anime, sorry to tell you. Avatar is not, technically. It's a Nicktoon.  A brilliant one, but a Nicktoon, none the less.

Well, by my personal opinion Pokemon is not anime. *quiets protests*

I don't care about facts. This is just my mindset.

Welcome to the fandom.  I got into MKR when I was 15!  You're far more eloquent online than I was at that age.

As for debates, IIRC we used to playfully argue over pairings and even characterization (Hikaru's always been a hot topic of debate here).  It's nice though because we could pretty easily agree to disagree.  Things never really got ugly here despite lots of disagreement, so you're in a great place. :D

I'm guessing the whole 'eloquent' thing is a compliment. ^_^

I am often told I'm very mature for my age, so it isn't very surprising that you think that way.

Its interesting but I think most of us found Rayearth around the age of 15! Although the fandoms I like are making me feel older and older, especially when I go to conventions! Its great to see that MKR can still bring in fans. (Why wouldnt it though? CLAMP is legendary and MKR was really their breakout hit.)

Hey guys! I got directed here by Milieva after she found me complaining on tumblr about how dead the fandom is (seems like she's been gathering us up eh?). 

Anyhow, here's a little bit about my history with Rayearth:
  • Discovered Rayearth sometime in 2001~2003 (it's been that long that I don't even remember anymore)
  • Used to have 2 friends with whom I'd fangirl with. Each of us adopted the role of one of the girls (how many of you here did that too?)
  • Wrote a fanfic ages ago with those friends...and promptly abandoned it after realizing how hard it is to coordinate 3 different writing style/ideas/storylines
  • ...and of course, my OTP: Clemi

I know a handful of you are doing NaNoWiMo, but I hope to talk to you guys soon :'D

Hi, dhiver! (are you the person who did the sane translation of the Clemi fanmanga of FEELS? :DDD)

YAY for clef and umi RAYEARTH~! And Mils gathering us all into her forum-shaped basket. XDD

(sorry, exam day, going a little madder than usual but welcome!)

I did do a translation! And I'm glad you think it makes sense! A lot of times when I read something in Japanese, the literal translation sounds off and I get all #@)$ about putting it into proper English e____e;;

(hope you did well on your exams! round two is coming up for me in a few weeks gah)

Hello there!

I'm shinomu, in here and ff.net. I also have an acount on deviantart with the username "mehira".

I've loved Rayearth since I was a kid and often I feel like checking out the fandom. I never actively participated in anything fandom related, really, and the stuff I make on the series are very sporadic. But I get this need sometimes to find new things about Rayearth to obsess about.

Hm, what else? I'm a manga fan and the last time I watched the anime I wasn't veyr impressed by it. I like the manga for the open possibilities it leaves. Also I didn't like most of the add ons of the animated series (but then it's been YEARS since I watched... the manga I read from time to time). FuuxFerio was my first OTP, but now Lantis/Hikaru/Eagle and all their possibilities is my new obsession, so I sadly missed the good stuff about them back in the day ff.net allowed NC-17 since I was too busy reading FuuxFerio. But, mostly, I'm interested on the dinamics between all the MKR characters as friends, frenemies, the sibling like relationships and all. I love  making up headcanons about how the characters will be as  grown ups and have a HUGE headcanon for when the knights grow old...  I also have crazy head canons too with massive CLAMP crossovers.

Uuh, that's it? I thought the forum would be a fun thing to do, although I do feel that I won't participate in lots of things because I'm not very interested in CLEMI...  Y_____________Y But I'll try and be active. Also English is my second language so please forgive in advance...

A welcome to our new members.  Don't worry,  shinomu, being an Umi/Clef fan isn't a requirement.  Actually, it is nice that some of our new members aren't again, as we have a ridiculous sway on the board as it is.

Welcome! :D Glad to meet you, and don't worry about the Clemi thing - I swear most of us who swing that way are also multishippers who like a lot of the other pairings too, we just get distracted if no one pokes us into talking about them too? XD

Hi everyone! I'm Camisado, feel free to call me Cami, Kelly or Marina (the latter two are my real names!). I'm from the south of England. I've loved Rayearth for approximately ten years, and met my best friend - Revolutionnaire, also at this board - through writing Rayearth fanfiction and posting it on FF.net. I also met Down there, as far as I remember!

Rev and I started putting together our own Rayearth fan website, but I have the shortest attention span in the world. I had planned to draw a comic of "life in Cephiro" (post series 2 of the manga) once a week-ish there, but that never happened either.

My other favourite CLAMP series' are xxxHolic and Tokyo Babylon (though I never got into Tsubasa or X). I also enjoy Pok?mon games, The Legend of Zelda, and am currently writing an original, local story for NaNoWriMo that I hope to turn into a comic.

This looks like a lovely community, I look forward to meeting you all!
