"You get ideas from daydreaming. You get ideas from being bored. You get ideas all the time. The only difference between writers and other people is we notice when we're doing it." - Neil Gaiman
I am a 29-year-old Canadian. I read a lot of books and fanfiction, and I am frequently sleep deprived because of this. I am a chronic night-owl, and if I was an animal, I'd be a cat. Someday I would love to write a novel, but I have not found inspiration yet. I currently write fanfiction for Inuyasha and Fairy Tail only, but I like reading stories for a variety of other categories, including Harry Potter, Final Fantasy VII, and Tolkien.
When I'm not having fun writing humour-fics, my writing tends to be character-driven. I like to go for emotional impact. My goal is for the reader to not only understand what the characters feel, but to feel the same things. I like writing character pieces, because I like adding in all the little nuances that make a character into a person.
Please let me know if you find any mispellings, typos, or grammatical errors in my work. I proofread quite thoroughly, but the occasional error slips past my notice from time to time. I'm a perfectionist, so I appreciate being told.
By the way, I adore reviews. Especially long ones, but any will do. Hint hint...

March 11, 2013 - Several ideas are floating around in my head right now, mostly revolving around Gajeel. What can I say, he's just a really interesting and versatile character. I also fully intend to post another chapter for Bad Influence, and it is nearly finished, but I just can't wrap it up to my satisfaction. I'll work on it. In other news, I am so NOT happy to hear that the Fairy Tail anime will be ending at the end of this month. At least we'll still have the manga, but the anime is what made me really fall in love with Fairy Tail in the first place. The first time a really emotional piece of music kicked in (I think it was near the end of the Daybreak arc), I was hooked, and it only got better from there. I think Fairy Tail's soundtrack is the best I have even encountered in an anime.
January 5, 2013 - Lots of new ideas for a new year! I posted another ficlet in Tell Me a Fairy Tail today, and I have several new stories in the works, along with a continuation for Bad Influence. Look forward to more from me soon!
My Best Work
For your reading pleasure, I present a list of my favorites of my own stories:
Bigger Than Anything (Fairy Tail) - My newest darling. Fairy Tail just lends itself so well to themes of family, friendship, loyalty, and love, and Natsu embodies all of these traits. Writing his perspective as a twelve-year-old boy was a great deal of fun. This story says a lot. It hasn't gotten a great deal of attention yet, but hopefully more people will discover it.
Warmth (Inuyasha) - It may not have been my first story, but I consider it to be the one that really got me started. My first award-winner, and my most popular story to date. I see it as one of my sweetest stories. It is also unique because there is not a single line of dialogue between the characters, and yet the emotion doesn't suffer.
Divine Intervention (Inuyasha)- This one hasn't gotten quite as much attention as I would have expected. It holds a special place in my heart for its originality. It took a fair amount of research to get it right. Overall, it is a more complex story than many of my others. It is not a "light" read, and maybe that has been off-putting to readers.
The Domestic Dog (Inuyasha)- This one gets a special mention for its humour. It started as an innocuous idea in my head and grew into a detailed scene that has just enough elements of the "crack-fic" to make it hilarious but not enough to make it nonsensical. The title alone was enough to make me smirk at my own cleverness.
Grief, Divided and Sorrow Shared (Inuyasha)- I don't cry easily. I rarely cry when I watch tv/movies (except the last hour of Return of the King, and when Zuko apologizes to his uncle in Avatar: The Last Airbender, and during Snape's memories in the final HP movie). I don't cry when I read books (not even HP when Sirius or Dumbledore died). But writing these two stories had me close to tearing up. For raw emotion, these two take the cake.
Reassurance (Inuyasha) - This story deserves a look for Inupapa alone, but I am proud of Sesshoumaru's characterization as well. The mood in this piece is meant to feel like the calm before the storm, and I think I achieved it. Its power lies in the reader knowing what will happen, while the characters are blissfully unaware.
Inugami (Inuyasha) - It's my first multi-chapter fic, but it was written as a single long one-shot. It is complex, but not as abstract feeling as Divine Intervention. In its author notes, I call it an exploration of hate, but I should call it an exploration of our darker sides. Greed, hate, mob-mentality, betrayal, desperation, and despair all have a role here. I hope it gets more attention, because I feel like my writing has reached a new level with this one.
