'' [D.Gray-Man] has ruined me. I cant even watch Miss Congeniality without trying to AU it."Nea-writes (often alternately represented as nea_writes) is a popular Fanfiction author. She's best known for her work in the D.Gray-Man fandom, though she made her debut writing for Skip Beat! back in 2011.Her main archive can be found here, though the bulk of her long-form work has also been cross-posted to her FF account.Tropes specific to the D.Gray-Man canon belong to that index, thank you!
— Nea-writes, via her Twitter account
Nea-writes' work includes example of:
- Alternate Universe Fic: A common premise for her work. Justified in that writing anything set in D.Gray-Man 's canon timeline is practically impossible, given just how batshit confusing said timeline is.
- Ascended Meme: The pairing Mana/Link, which was first conceived as a joke between nea-writes and hurryup, would eventually spawn its own fanfiction and art. This would later become the source of much regret.
- Creator Couple: Nea-writes and hurryup's frequent collaboration qualifies them as this.
- Creator Backlash: Has admitted to being embarrassed by some of her older work.
- Creator's Favorite: She tends to make Allen, Kanda, and Link the core focus of her work, so it comes as no surprise when Word of God admits they're her favorites characters. Also, Timothy.
- Curtain Fic: Ever wanted to read a fic about Allen and Kanda going grocery shopping? Well, now you can!
- Fusion Fic: She has one fic that tosses the cast of D.Gray-Man into the plot of The Breakfast Club, of all things. It's Better Than It Sounds, though it also (regrettably) qualifies as a Dead Fic at this point. You can read it here.
- Gotta Ship Em All: At the time of this writing, Nea-writes has produced content for roughly six different pairings.
- High School A.U.: She seems to like this trope.
- Hurt/Comfort Fic: Her entire Timothy-centric series, ''Chut, je rêve'', is absolutely loaded with it, though this segment probably provides the best example.
- One True Threesome: Has produced fanfic for multiple OT3 pairings.
- Plot Bunny: Has posted a number of short, incomplete drabbles to her Tumblr account.
- Prompt Fic
- Pseudocanonical Fic: ''Kingdom of Heathens'' qualifies.
- Recursive Fanfiction: Zig-zagged. Although not directly based off of it, Nea-writes' long-form Alternate Universe fic Cave of Poppies was apparently inspired by wzyzzyxw's Better Off Dead, an older D.Gray-Man fic that has since been taken down from Fanfiction.net. Also played straight; it's directly played off liketolaugh's Juxtaposition.
- The aforementioned Kingdom of Heathens is also technically this, being based off liketolaugh's Pacifism AU.
- Signature Style: Most recognized for her striking dialogue, apparent preference of Slice of Life settings, and dense pathos. That, as well as her tendency to keep her work relatively PG, contrary to the expectations of the medium.
- Southern Belle: Has an in-fandom reputation for being a Proper Lady.
- Stillborn Serial: Responsible for several of these, though she's never officially cancelled any of her ongoing work.
- W.A.F.F.: Although Nea-writes is best known for her dramatic work, she occasionally delivers on the fluff.
