Author has written 22 stories for Yu-Gi-Oh.

Back for a little fun after a very long hiatus. Decided not to remove my older work because some of you seemed to enjoy it, but it's a little embarrassing to see my previous stuff, so no poking fun of me, please!

On this site I work exclusively with Yu-Gi-Oh! fanfics. My work centers on the characters of Yugi and Atem and usually takes place in a fantasy setting. Superpowers, secrets, and the power of friendship were primary themes in the work I wrote as a kid. At the moment, however, I'm indulging my fondness for transformation-based fiction and magic.
