Author has written 19 stories for X-Men, Heroes, Blade, Hollows, Kim Harrison, BioShock, Mass Effect, Baldur's Gate, Assassin's Creed, Mai HiME, and Misc. Games.
Update: You know what? screw it. I keep saying 'just a bit longer' and 'almost finished' with nothing happening. I'm not bothering to pretend to know when the next chapter of Butterfly Effect is going to be finished, though (I can't stress this enough) IT WILL BE FINISHED. I have the story all planned out in my head etc. it's just a matter of co-coordinating it all into words. Which is annoyingly more problematic than I'd like. Please don't lose faith in it (I like the story too much to abandon it). Again, sorry to all the people out there who are being kept waiting, I'm really not doing it to be cruel. Random fics will pop up that actually help keep my writing 'muscles' in shape; a couple of Mai HIME's, some Rachel Morgan and maybe even a Knights of the Old Republic one (Bastila/RevanF pairing). As always, thanks go out to everyone who bothers to review/alert/favourite my stories! I really can't express how much I appreciate your support.
What can I say? It's not like anyone reads these unless they're really bored. Ah well, I'll have a go...

'Religion is an illusion and it derives its strength from the fact that it falls in with our instinctual desires.' - Sigmund Freud
'Illusions commend themselves to us because they save us pain and allow us to enjoy pleasure instead. We must therefore accept it without complaint when they sometimes collide with a bit of reality against which they are dashed to pieces.' - Sigmund Freud

“Ok, I've just about had my FILL of riddle asking, quest assigning, insult throwing, pun hurling, hostage taking, iron mongering, smart arsed fools, freaks, and felons that continually test my will, mettle, strength, intelligence, and most of all, patience! If you've got a straight answer ANYWHERE in that bent little head of yours, I want to hear it pretty damn quick or I'm going to take a large blunt object roughly the size of Elminster AND his hat, and stuff it lengthwise into a crevice of your being so seldom seen that even the denizens of the nine hells themselves wouldn't touch it with a twenty-foot rusty halberd! Have I MADE myself perfectly CLEAR?!” - CHARNAME, Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn (possibly one of the greatest PC RPG games ever)
Favourite film/tv quotes:
South of Nowhere -season 2, episode 7
(classroom - Ashley and Spencer are talking about Spencer coming out to her parents)
Spencer (exhales): Okay. Mom there's...something I want to talk to you about. Ashley and I are...in love.
Ashley (pulling a completely revolted face): You guys are both going to burn in hell. (beat, then a saccharine tone) Would you pass the potatoes please?
South of Nowhere -season 1, episode 2
(Spencer's house, extremely awkward moment)
(Rory and Lorelai are shopping for school supplies)
(Lane and Rory discuss presents)
Crone (drawing out sentences in an extremely irritating and exaggeratedly dramatic fashion): Two things, my lord, must thee know of the Wisewoman. First, she is ... a woman, and second, she is ...
Edmund to Baldrick: You can have the afternoon off when you DIE, not before.
Nursie: You're so clever today, you better be careful your foot doesn't fall off.
Edmund: I've got a plan so cunning you could put a tail on it and call it a weasel.
(George is Prince George IV and Johnson is Dr. Johnson who created the first dictionary.)
(George dictating a letter to a woman he hopes to marry and therefore solve his massive debt problem)
Edmund: Baldrick, have you no idea what irony is?
The Mighty Boosh (one of the most genius and surreal tv shows ever):
Howard: I'll put a move on you, you won't know what's happening.
Vince: My uncle once punched a man so hard his legs became trombones. It was really embarrassing. He had to walk out of the ring like this- (makes trombone noises while imitating plodding)
Howard: I see a boundary, I eat that boundary and wash it down with a hot steamin' cup o' rules.
Vince: I'm a Cockney bitch, a young ragamuffin from the streets.
Howard: Don't touch me! Don't ever touch me, not here, not now, not there, not back stage, not when out buying... hammocks; never!
Vince: You're making me sick, coming in here, doing your funny little rehearsals, playing your instruments, writing songs - it's not about that, being in a band! It's about what you look like! Don't you understand anything?
X-2 The Movie:
(Bobby Drake's house)
Mrs. Drake (in response to her son's revelation of being a mutant): Have you ever tried... not being a mutant?
Dwight: (while being rescued from the Tar Pits): Miho. You're an angel. You're a saint. You're Mother Teresa. You're Elvis. You're God. And if you'd shown up about ten minutes earlier, we'd still have Jackie-Boy's head.
Stuka: (after getting shot with an arrow) Hey... Will ya look at that? It's right through me. Guys, look. It's cut a hole right through me.
John Hartigan: When it comes to reassuring a traumatized 19-year-old, I'm about as expert as a palsy victim doing brain surgery with a pipe wrench.
A Knight's Tale:
Geoffery Chaucer: I will eviscerate you in fiction. Every pimple, every character flaw. I was naked for a day; you will be naked for eternity.

3 Doors Down
Arctic Monkeys - from Sheffield!
Apocalyptica - a Finnish band consisting of three classically-trained cellists and a drummer. Their speciality isheavy metal rock played on cellos, though they also play classical music. DO NOT KNOCK THEM BEFORE YOU'VE LISTENED! I was converted after 'Romance' and 'Bittersweet'
Lacuna Coil - Italian gothic rock
Pink (most of the time)
Taking Back Sunday
