Author has written 17 stories for Avatar: Last Airbender, DC Superheroes, Storm Hawks, Teen Titans, X-Men: Evolution, Naruto, Evangelion, Jackie Chan Adventures, Mulan, Once Upon a Time, and Inuyasha.
Right, first off I am a werid one by reputation and personal admittance. My sociopolitical idealogy is enough to confuse people and leave me alienated from the Right and Left both. To put it most simply I am Christian Socialist Monarchist, and since my politics have no real impact on my activities here I will leave it at that.
I am a long time amateur writer, well as much as a man under thirty can be a long time anything. I am passionate for stories enjoying any medium so long as it can convey quality storytelling. Genrewise, while I have preferences I am pretty open. The exception being porn, which is a genre I loath since it lacks depth and only panders to the most basic of all carnal urges. That being said I will not fly into a rage at sex scenes, so long as they are part of the story design and not just a cheap fix like a Turtledove novel's unnecessary sex scene.
Regarding fan fiction. This genre is difficult to do and is prone with pit falls for writers who dare it. As such those who dare and do well have my respect.
As a member of this site certain patterns became clear. My mind is too chaotic and active to focus on just one project without developing a sort of creative constipation that gives me insomnia and produce low quality writing. Comversely if I let my muse run wild like a student in Amsterdam I will have so many pies on the fire that none get cooked. So I have developed a system and abandoned it.
Active Updates: These stories are the tales I feel I have a certain claim to my time. I cannot say exactly why but I feel these stories deserve to be in the priority pile where even when the process is hard one must power on through. These stories will be updated.
Passive Updates: These stories arethe ones that are updated less frequently in general. Not because they are any less dear to me, but rathr for the sake of any progress there must be a ranking system. These stories are updated time and inspiration allowing. I do not believe in discontinuing stories unless there is no other option so do not worry in that regard. However if a passive story is generating a lot of reviews my guilt will likely make me move that story up on the priority list for updates as opposed to stories that are not getting any love. When an active story is finished one of the passives will take its place.
Kindred: Love & War
Jewel of Darkness
Saviors of the Night
Land of the Phoenix
"Land of the Phoenix" Status: Rewriting/hiatus- a story set after Sozin's comet, but drawing from a heavily aktered background of my own creation. This will probably move slowly with perspective shifting into the past I created for the Avatar world. Contain OCs primnaril;y as antaoomnists but expect more to emerge as the story progresses.
Rated T, for violence, death, misery/abuse, and other unpleasantness.
"Kindred: Love and War" Status: Rewriting as new story- CONTAINS INCEST! IF YOU CANNOT STAND THE THOUGHT JUST STOP READING AND MOVE ALONG.
Right then, this story is a sequel written with permission by Vicki So, regarding her story "Kindred". It continues an alternate TL of the Avatar Universe where Zuko and Azulas have a significantly "different" realationship. It will not contain any explicit sex scenes so do not worry. If you require reasoning for why exactly consult the "Kindred."
This will branch out more and eventually touch on how the altered timeline has affected events throughout the world and the status of all your favorite characters(except foaming at the mouth guy). In addition to the naughty romance it will contain Aang x Katara, and Sokka x (that I am keeping for you to find out later).
If the idea repels you to much to give a glance I respect that. However I will be most annoyed if you read it only to write a review about how wrong this is and call me a sick person. I personally would be apalled and horrified to find children of my own doing this, so do not go making assumptions about the writer based on the writing. Also if you feel that way just save both of us some time and pass to read and review something you can stand.
Rated M, for incest, death, violence, cussing, and other things that occur during wars.
"Dark Centuries" Status: Hiatus: "Heed my warnings thy son of the earth a child of the servants of god and the daughters of man shall come forth and him and his heir and their generals shall rise forth with a legion of the young and mighty some bearing the crests of fallen heroes and others the marks of the deepest sinners and you will learn to fear the armies which are each composed of one and only one each with each one brings the beginnings of a most great disaster which will bring forth a path illuminated by the united lights led by a redeemed sinner who has seen the aftermath of Sodom & Gomorrah multiplied by the sea and light the path of the heir of Chronos and the Lord of the vast lesser heavens which still hide many secrets and the union of many beings not human but still children of God shall be commenced by one who wears the face of horus while two worlds are united under traded sons one who has thrown his father from the burning throne while the scarab shall fall to the four corners of a once great land the one from two opposite shining seas while the son of the shackled thunder shall rise forth and herald the beginning of retribution while the black and white kings and queens send forth their pawns and rooks and four opposing warlords and blackguards shall wage a war among each other for the control of the new yet old city for the control of its hades and they shall number as such a lord of moths and locusts & the son of Sobek among mortals & the one who was forged by prometheus from the moistened earth & the noble beast lord of the night sky and there will be an uprising in Hell and the crown of thorns shall be claimed by the hunched rhymer while the lord of the marsh shall convene the senate by which those who represent that which the world is built of shall raise their voices united against the darkened hand while the dreamer weeps and his sibling shall be replaced by one who marks the deceased on his cursed flesh while two youths and a respected elder watch from beyond time and Thus shall the Lord Almighty release the four blessed hosts led by his Vengeance personified while the stranger watches so prepare you mortal servant of the almighty for as the scriptures say 'Fear god and give glory to him for the hour of his judgement is come'..."
Prophecy of the Kingdom, This piece was written by contributing author Drrockso20, used as an ad with permission.
Jumping Fox(Revival Pending): This story was created as a gift for Nocturne Kitsune. It is a FemNaru story and a crossover with Teen Titans. I am going to be trying a new style of writing with leaping back and forth on the timeline, likely the results will be of the sink or swim variety. For the record as of this writing I am not planning on it being a NaruxRobin story, those character slotsare meant to designate the main characaters not tell you the pairing. Just wanted to clear that up.
Blue(Hiatus, pending rewrite): This story was inspired in part by Xethstrin's work. Though rather than following the canon I will be twisting it into a more realist setting drawing on aspects of the World Wars. Any morewould be a spoiler sinceat this point the raptor has yet to truly take off.
Jewel of Darkness: This addresses one o my favorite concepts on the site, Dark Raven. Please note that in this story Raven will be a villain, sudden character reversals are not to my taste. Also her relatyionship with Slade is in no way a pairing, he will be her mentor and sort of a twisted father figure. The story is AU like all of my work so do not expect the setting or plot to playt out as per cannon because it will not.
Divergent X: My own spin on diverging the X Men Evoverse, namely more gray. OCs feature heavily at some points, but only one could qualify as a main character. Do not worry as the canon cast while they are different from canon will still be the focal point of the story.
Saviors of the Night: A continuation of the Batman Elseworld "Batman: Vampire". It heavily diverges from the source material with a key event playing out differently. The result will be a darker Gotham in which the undead Knight must defend his city from the Occult while withstanding the fear and hatred of the very humanity he seeks to protect. Will also feature a crossover with Watchmen, not dimension hopping.
Project Dark Jade:
A mutual project carried out by myself and Nocturne no Kitsune. It turns out we have many similar interests and disatisfactions. In one case this resulted in us working together to address a depressing vaccum in the Jackie Chan Adventures Archives. Namely stories in which the shows leading little lady either strays or is press ganged unto the dark side.
"Queen of All Oni"(Running): My contribution diverges at the begining of the Shadow Khan arc. Rather than Daolon Wong's spell reawkening the ancient ruler of the Shadow Khan, he revives a newer evil. The Queen of the Shadow Khan has risen again, and the hunt for the masks is on. Not only must Jackie and Torhu save the world they must save Jade from the darkess that engulfs her, if they can.
"Queen of Shadows"(Running): Nocturne no Kitsune has a rather different, but highly enjoyable approach in mind. When Jade attacked the Shendu possessed Jackie she made him slash a page with ink, setting the course of history into chaos. She awakens to find herself a powerful ruler in ancient Japan with mighty armies at her disposal. The armies beng the tribes of Shadow Khan and herself the dreaded Queen of Shadows. Can she mend the damage done to history and return to her proper self and time. Will she survive the forces of Light and rivals in Darkness long enough to even try?
"Jade Dragon"(Planning): No blue skin here, we are not horses of a single trick. In this collaboration a magic mirror sends Jade on astrange but very familiar journey. For now we will leave it at that.
"When I Grow up"(Complete): Does knowing the future mean you can change it? Or is fate the one thing not even the indomitable Jade Chan can overcome?
"A Shadow of the Titans"(Running): Orginally concieved by Nocturne no Kitsune it has become a collaboration between him and Eduard Kassel. A sweeping lengthy saga crafted over much of 2009 in secret, the prologue was written months ago by Nocturne. The hiatus has delayed the launch leaving Kassel with the notes and plot outlines but now that Nocturne has given his blessing this project can proceed:
An accident during a bainishing spell sends Jade cear to another world, but the intervention of a mysterious entity complicates her problems. Once more the Queen of the Shadowkhan Jae muist survive the world of the Teen Titans where supoer heroes asnd villains clash in seemingly endless struggles of good and evil. An not only that she must try and find a way to return, or will this world's promises sway her from thar course? Expected to be epic in length, and hopefully epic in other ways.
"Beyond my Abilities"(Development & Planning): A Delve into how power corrupts, and the desire for power corrupts absolutely. Once all the adventures are over and life has calmed down, Jade laments the loss of her exciting lifestyle. But the worse is yet to come, as she starts to feel ignored and useless. Her Uncles are seeming to drift away from her, and deny her the things she earned on her exploits like Training in the Martial arts with Jackie, or watching as Uncle brews another spell. Thinking that she is being dragged down into obscurity, Jade desperately attempts to find a way to add that exceptional aspect to her life again.
And she gets exactly what she wants, when she discovers a small shop with no name. But is the asking price for this stores special products more then What Jade is willing to pay? Status: Concept Stages
"Roommate"(Running): ppH's entry begins at the start of season 2. When Jade gets between Valmont and Shendu. Things are turned upside down.
Now stuck with the bad guys and with a 900 year old dragon in her head. Will Jade find her way back into the light?.
Or will Shendu drag her down into the darkness?.
"The Blue Knight and The Dark Queen"(Complete): D. J. Scales comes onto the scene with a new take on the concept. In this tale the King revives the Queen during the faithful meeting on the runway. With two members of dark royalty dedicated to the quest the situation is grim for our remaining heroes. Now, with the balance between good and evil disrupted even more than usual Uncle summons new champions to aid in their struggle. The Dark Forces may have regained a Queen but the forces of good have gained a Blue Knight and the enchanted sword Caliburn to their cause. Crossover with Sonic and The Black Knight.
"The Blue Knight and the Dark Queen: The Immortal Relics": The sequel.
"Queen's Ascension"(Running): What if when the 9 Oni Masks broke, something different happened than the generals being revived? What If Jade was given the chance to once again be the ShadowKhan Queen? A new spin on the return of the Queen; the motives especially are intriguing in this budding tale. Note: This story rearranges the continuity in regards to the seasons.
"Demon Sorceress of Fire"(Running): Jade has earned her place as a Demon Sorcerer by slaying the previous holder of the title. Compelled by her 'brothers and sisters', she will now restore the power of the Dark Hand, free the Demon Sorcerers to rebuild their kingdoms anew, all while trying to stop the slow merging of her soul with Shendu and retain her humanity.
"Her Shadowed Realm"(Running): CryptIXeeper introduces himself into the DJP with this particular story. In one reality, Jade turned evil. She betrayed the very family and friends she had fought alongside and cared about for power. However, said family and friends succeeded in banishing her to the Shadow Realm, a dimension bridging all others together with shadow. In the other, Jade is but an innocent girl with an average life and an average family. What happens with this evil Jade, taken to calling herself 'Yu' finds a way to enter her world and tempt the innocent jade towards the dark side? Find out as we begin a journey down the path of corruption, in the world of Yu-Gi-Oh! A Jackie Chan Adventures and Yu-Gi-Oh! Crossover
"影Kage"(Running): Longtime fan Chaotic9 enters the ranks wit this story. Sometimes even the heroes greatest victory can be tainted. And that cost Jade her place in her Universe. Now in another Universe watched by a place called Kandrakar and its Guardians, with some of the power she once possessed, Jade will try to find a way home, by any means necessary. But can she prevail in an Universe where Light seems to always beat Darkness?
"A MAD Heir"(Running): Dr. Claw is tired of his loyal yet hopelessly inept flunkies, and decides to try something new. Rated T because there will most likely be death and some psychological stuff in here, minimal cursing. The first chapter is more like an intro. Inspector Gadget Crossover.
D. J. Scales: This writer originally had an idea he wanted to suggest, but in the process found his own creativity taking hold of the idea. While new to the Dark Jade idea he is no stranger to the JCA fandom in his writing on this site.
PPH: The new rookie on the block. Who merely hopes people enjoy his story’s.
Nocturne no Kitsune: The first one past the post with a story for this Project. He also comcieved Jade Dragon and the Crossover Project. Real life has forced him into a hiatus of indefinite length on some stories, but the signs seem hopeful right now.
Eduard Kassel: Founder of Project Dark Jade, though it was only made real through the encouragement and input of Nocturne no Kitsune.
Zim'smostloyalservant: The stalwart beta that has worked with Nocturne and Kassel on their PDJ stories and more. An invaluable member of the PDJ team.
DigitalHazard: Rookie writer, just now posted the begining of his first story
MEMBER X: A new writer that has submitted a story idea and been approved. Wishes to remain anonymous until the story is ready to be posted.

Dark Jade Author Seeks Beta Thread: This thread is for fans that are inclined to beta read to tuch bases with Dark Jade writers looking for betas.
Dark Sari Revolution
Sari is half Transformer, and not all transformers are good. So why must Sari be limited to one side? It doesn't matter how or really why, so long as there is a good story behind it join the Revolution and burst out of the conventions encasing our favorite little hybrid. Founded by Nocturne no Kitsune his absence seems to sadly have quelled the idea, all the more reason for Sari fans to step up. If you are interested in this contact me and I will offer what assistance I can, not that its much as I am not a big fan of this fandom. I may be a poor castellan to this idea, but we can only hope Nocturne returns or someone else steps up.
Nocturne no Kitsune (Coming off hiatus)
"Viral Innocence": It was supposed to be a harmless Virus. Something that was bound to happen sooner or later with her more pronounced Cybertronain half. What was the worse that could happen to his friend? She was supposed to be back up and better in no time at all.
"Titans Servant": They thought they could kill a god, that they could strike down his master. But they are wrong. Now he shall set in motion the gears of destruction, and they shall never know that their fate shall lie in the hands of a young girl and her little blue world.
My Big Sister The Spider": Sari's life is not what it could have been. Her Father has died and the company has Collapsed due to bad management, Leaving Sari with nothing but a life on the streets where she has grown in unexpected ways, in order to survive. Can anything Save Sari?
"Lilith": The circuit is not the sole gateway to transformtion. Humans forgot it was their mother the gene that raised them from amobea to dominion. Black was its chamnpion and he was forsaken by those who knelt before the altar of the gear. Pressed down but not crushed, he learned and prepared. The world would know the Mother's wrath, and it would begin with the bloodline of her greatest enemy.
Join the Revolution Comrades!

It is said by some that reviews on this site are generally worthless, and do nothing but stroke the egos' of the writers. This is not a good attitude, especially among writers. One does not measure acts of kindness, and except for flames, reviews regardless of their length and quality are acts of kindness. Even if it is only a sentence of praise or a request for something you don't intend to include, they still choose to take time to hit that button. Regardless of what comes after we need to appreciate people who take time to hit that button, because the fact is we are all guilty of moving on without hitting that button.
So good, bad, lengthy, brief, praising, and constructive; a cheer to reviews and most of all to the readers who step up and write them.
Good show, and do carry on!
Shattered Realms (with MJLCoyoteStark): An idea i had in my head but lacked the time ti implement into something resembling a viable story. A partnership with this fine author has seen the story come to life and now it is being posted on his profile.
Summary: Aizen's defeat has left a tense peace between Arrancars and Soul Reapers. The resulting isolation has lasted for 200 years, only to be broken by a covert expedition from the Soul Society, which has now vanished.
A Feudal Tale:
In light of Nocturne no Kitsune's absence and silence, i have reached a decision tegarding PDJ. Specifically Queen of Shadows. Shoukd Nocturne not return by the time I finish Queen of All Oni I will forgo my plans for a sequel to see to it the great story we worked on is made into a story the people cn enjoy.
Thank you, season's blessings upon you.
Megamind Challenge, "Heroine":
Well that is up to you!
Well I seem to have finally gotten the upper hand on the next QoaO chapter. The rough draft nears completion after fighting with surprising vigor. Since this draft will need a lot of polishing, and maybe some serious rewriting no guarantee the release will be very soon. But the work is progressing.
After that chapter, I am diving into Hachin with every intent carry on with it until it is finished. The planned exception is taking a break from that story for a Divergent X chapter. The goal is to wrap up Hachin before years end. So except for those three stories already mentioned, you may be waiting until January for updates.
Though fans of Shadow of the Titans get a treat from a fellow reader in the meantime! Ander Arias has posted the first fanart for this crossover on his deviantart account. And he was then gracious enough to grant my request for a cover for the story itself. Lets have some applause for Ander eh?
