Let's see. What can I tell you all about me?

Name: April
Age: 31
DOB: May 1, 1983
Location: Iowa, USA
Occupation: Mom/Want-to-be Employee
Fav. Color: Cerulean
Fav. Food: Italian
Fav. Season: Any one except Winter (I dislike snow with a passion that burns deeply within my soul, but it is pretty to look at...when it isn't on my deck, yard or basically anywhere that I am or when I have to personally deal with its inconveniences, lol)

I have two daughters who are 3 and 8 years old, and an awesome stepson who is 12. I have an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Early Childhood and Web Design and a Certificate in Graphic Design.

I'm a gamer mom who enjoys RPG both online and on XBox 360, Wii and exercising on the Kinect. Some of my favorites include the Fable franchise, Divinity, Elder Scrolls and Guild Wars. In my spare time I obviously enjoy gaming, reading and some writing. Recently, I've read the Divergent series, Harry Potter, Twilight, Mortal Instruments and starting soon on Ender's Game.

I love to do things outdoors when the weather is nice. I'm an amateur photographer and my youngest is my favorite subject. Check out my deviantArt gallery under ABundridge to see my works. I also love anime, especially Bleach, Naruto Shippuuden, Inuyasha, Fullmetal Alchemist, Fruits Basket, Ouran High Host Club & Sailor Moon and now Sailor Moon Crystal. I've become an avid manga reader and am currently working through Bleach, Naruto Shippuuden, Love Stage!!, D. Gray Man and Kurosaki-kun no Iinari ni Nante Naranai.

I really enjoy Kagome/Inuyasha fics, but it seems like there is more drama in Kagome/Sesshoumaru, so I've been reading more of those lately. Through Inuyasha fics I have became obsessed with the Bleach universe so I have been looking for some good Ichigo/Rukia stories. After running short on other good stories I have run into the FMA universe to see what is there, though it looks even less filling than the others.

I have been working on some One-Shot; Song-Fics, which is funny cause I love writing them but I don't care to read them. I will be posting future Song-Fics on Dokuga and InuYasha Fanfiction.

I have a new main story that I'm working on, and it is currently on hiatus. It's from the Naruto universe and will feature Kakashi and a character of my own making. It will include points from both Bleach and FMA in it though it won't include any of those characters. My other story has been on hiatus for a while now and currently, I've lost the ambition to write on it but hopefully I will pick it up again someday. Thanks to everyone for the reviews and your patience. This story to will be moved to another site when the songs come in, but it will be a while before that happens.

I don't own any of the characters created by their respected authors. The song lyrics belong to their respectable writers and albums. I simply add them together to make some interesting outcomes in a story. Please read and review my stories, as they help me grow as a writer.

Some Quotable Quotes:

"Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die tomorrow." -James Dean

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." -Walt Emerson

"Teddy bears are wonderful reminders for us to have soft edges, be full of love and trust and always be ready for a hug." -Anonymous

"Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city." -George Burns

"I love women. They're the best thing ever created. If they want to be like men and come down to our level, that's fine." -Mel Gibson

"Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them." -James Baldwin

"I think everything must go back to the fact I had a very anxious childhood. You know, my mother never had time for me. You know, when you're the middle child in a family of five million, you don't get any attention." -Woody Allen as 'Z' in Antz

"A child's life is like a piece of paper on which every passerby leaves a mark." -Chinese Proverb

"Cheerleaders are dancers gone retarded." -Sparky Pulastri in Bring it On

"I was born modest; not all over, but in spots." -Mark Twain

Favorite Anime Quotes:

"I won't run away anymore... I won't go back on my word... that is my ninja way!" -Naruto Uzumaki

"To underestimate me is to doubt my power, and with this word I will crush you and your doubt...BANKAI!" -Ichigo Kurosaki

"Hello students, today I got lost on the road of life." -Kakashi Hatake

"I have no right to know. I don't have a method of stepping into the depths of your heart without it getting dirty. So I'll wait. When you want to talk, when you think it's okay to to me." -Rukia Kuchiki

"It's almost unbearable, isn't it… the pain of being all alone. I know that feeling, I've been there, in that dark and lonely place, but now there are others, other people who mean a lot to me. I care more about them than I do myself, and I won't let anyone hurt them. That's why I'll never give up, I will stop you, even if I have to kill you! They saved me from myself, they rescued me from my loneliness, they were the first to accept me as who I am. They're my friends." - Naruto Uzumaki

"I hate the rain. Rain falls in this world, too. When your heart is in chaos, this sky becomes clouded. When you are sad, rain falls so terribly easily. Can you understand...the horror of being pelted by rain in this solitary world? If only to stop that rain, I shall lend you any strength. If you trust in me, I will let no rain fall in this world. Ichigo, trust me. You are not fighting alone." -Zangetsu

"I won't allow my comrades to die. I'll protect you with my life. Trust me." -Kakashi Hatake

"I'm not a superman, so I cant say anything big like I'll protect everyone on earth. I'm not a modest guy who will say its enough if I can protect as many people as my two hands can handle either. I want to protect… a mountain of people." -Ichigo Kurosaki

"Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is alchemy's first law of Equivalent Exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world's one, and only, truth. But the world isn't perfect, and the law is incomplete. Equivalent Exchange doesn't encompass everything that goes on here, but I still choose to believe in its principle, that all things do come at a price, that there's an ebb and a flow, a cycle, that the pain we went through did have a reward, and that anyone who's determined and perseveres will get something of value in return, even if it's not what they expected. I don't think of Equivalent Exchange as a law of the world anymore. I think of it as a promise, between my brother and me. A promise that, someday, we'll see each other again." -Alphonse Elric

"You know what they say, don't you Naruto...When two Shinobi are powerful enough...They read each other's thoughts, simply through an exchange of fists. Without ever uttering a single word...Get it. You've always been naïve...Naruto. Tell me...Do you know my thoughts? Can you tell what's on my mind?!" -Sasuke Uchiha

"Red is a bad-ass, tough-guy color that gets the blood boiling!" -Edward Elric on the color of his coat

[Thinking] "If I'm still sane by the time I finish their training it'll be a miracle!" -Kakashi Hatake

"That's the kind of man you have been in my heart, Ichigo!" -Rukia Kuchiki

"Real strength is not what you have when fighting for only yourself. When you have something special that you want to protect, only then can you become truly strong!" - Naruto Uzumaki

"We are all like fireworks. We climb, shine, and always go our separate ways and become further apart. But even if that time comes, let's not disappear like a firework, and let's continue to shine...Forever." -Toshiro Hitsugaya

"Thanks to you... I think the rain... has stopped." -Ichigo Kurosaki to Rukia Kuchiki

"I'm telling you this because you don't get it, and you think you get it, which isn't the same as actually getting it. Get it?" -Kakashi Hatake

"Well if that's the kind of pride you're talking about, you can bet your ass, I'm going to mess with it." -Ichigo Kurosaki

“The power you just received, is the result of the way you were able to change soul society by fighting until now. You should accept it proudly.” -Toshiro Hitsugaya

“If I’m dodging, I won’t let them cut me. If I’m protecting someone, I won’t let her die. If I’m attacking, I’ll cut you.” -Ichigo Kurosaki

"Of course not! A person like me shouldn't get dragged into a freak show with you pack of pseudo-humans! It's bad for my health!" -Mayes Hughes

"It isn't that if you become Hokage everyone will acknowledge you... It's the ones who are acknowledged that can become Hokage." -Itachi Uchiha

“Hold on. So in my mind, this jacked-up, sideways ridiculousness is the normal state?” -Ichigo Kurosaki

“Whats the difference between a king and his horse? I don't mean some kiddy shit like one has 4 legs and the other has 2, or ones a person and ones an animal. If their form, ability, and power is exactly the same, then why is it one becomes the king and controls the battle and the other one becomes the horse and carries the king? There's only one answer...INSTINCT!!!” -Ichigo's Hollow

"These fools don't understand, that this isn't nearly enough to make you despair. They don't know the caliber of despair that you have already conquered. Show them Ichigo! Despair...cannot ever hope to stop you!" -Rukia Kuchiki to Ichigo Kurosaki

"Three times now... We've fought world wars for our own nations, our own villages. We've hurt one another. We've hated one another. That hatred bred a lust for power, and that lust for power created ME. I was a Jinchuuriki, the embodiment of hatred and power. And I hated this world, and all the people in it... I wanted to destroy it with my own hands. The exact same thing Akatsuki is trying to do today. But one man, one ninja from Konoha stopped me. I was his enemy, yet he wept for me! I hurt him, yet he called me his friend! He saved me! My enemy, my fellow Jinchuuriki... He suffered the same pain as me, yet bore no ill will! There are no enemies here because we've all suffered at Akatsuki's hand! SO THERE IS NO SAND, NO STONE, NO LEAF, NO MIST, NO CLOUD! THERE ARE ONLY SHINOBI! And if you still hold a grudge against the Sand, then when this war is over, come and take my head instead! Our enemies are after the friend who saved my life! If they take him, if we hand him over, our world is finished! I want to protect him, and I want to protect our world! But I'm too young to protect it all on my own! All of you lend me your aid!" -Gaara
