Author has written 1 story for Superman.

If you've ever gotten a review from me that you didn't like, suck it up. It wasn't a flame. There was a flaw. There was a problem. There was an inconsistency with either plot or character. There was room for improvement. Your story was messy af or it contained extremely problematic or creepy elements that you were normalizing (i.e. rape/abuse/underage sex/pedophilia). I'm not going to praise your mistakes. Don't be a baby.

I do not beta-read. Never ask me to beta-read. I'm a terrible beta-reader.

I rarely accept suggestions from readers, as all stories will be complete prior to posting.

I am also not accepting story requests at this time. This may not change.

I'm not open to collaborations. When it comes to writing, I just don't work well with other people.


What is Shatterpoint?

Aside from being an umbrella title, Shatterpoint is a “rebooted” DC fanfic universe that I started writing back in February 2013. The New 52 just wasn’t doing it for me and I had a lot of ideas that I needed to get out of my head. I found it difficult to write within canon because hey, DC doesn't really have a wholly defined canon. They've had so many Crisis events and so many legacy characters and it's spread across so much media that it's hard to know where to start. So I started cherry-picking, trying to streamline the characters and the plots of various stories. I've culled ideas from a multitude of media/comics. As the fanfic universe progresses, you're likely to find a little bit of everything.

Keep in mind that I'm writing well ahead of where I'm actually posting so the stories will likely pre-date any of the upcoming DCTV or DCEU releases. And since I'm drawing inspiration from the same sources as the DCTV/DCEU, any and all similarities are more than likely coincidences. When I first started, progress was stop-start since I was writing piecemeal and out of order. The internal continuity was wonky as hell, so I had to go back to the beginning. In the last three years, the 'verse undergone some considerable revision and it grew a lot larger than I predicted. I've ended up with an extensive timeline, a long list of potential stories, more DC comics knowledge than I thought I would have, and plots that should stand up to most scrutiny.

Ten stories are confirmed for “Phase 1”, which takes place over the course of four years and contains two crossover events. Phase 1 will introduce Superman, the Flash, and Wonder Woman, and their associated supporting casts. Currently, the first story Crucible is being posted.

If wildly AU origin stories comprised of canon-welding, canon cherry-picking, and a “back to the classics” approach are part of your jam, then I might have something for you. All titles, current and future, are presented below in chronological order.


Phase One

Crucible- Completed. 42 chapters and an epilogue. Currently posted: 20 chapters. This is the Superman origin story that employs a lot of canon welding and was mostly inspired by Superman: the Animated Series. (*The first half of chapter 1 is kind of rough, but stick with it. It gets better going down. I'll figure out a better opening some day)

Architects- Completed. 15 chapters and an epilogue. Not posted. A story about the Metropolis P.D. Special Crimes Unit.

Formation- In progress.

Lightning Storm- The Flash origin story.

Whiplash

Adamantine

Speed and Flame

Hunted Heroes

To Another Shore (title subject to change)

The Miracle Mile


I also geek the fuck out on tumblr (call me arcadia).

It's not the Raptor DNA by SkullsandDuggery reviews
"Her hateful gaze was all too familiar, almost a mirror when he saw past the crimson color, and slit pupils." Because we all know the scientists of Jurassic World had proven themselves incapable of exercising discipline when it came to temptations. Why would it be any different with creating the Indominus? Constructive criticism is welcome and appreciated!

A Progression of Kisses by theAkuRokuFaNaTiC reviews
After Barry kissed her, Iris turned to face him. "This will never happen again, will it? We'll both get married, of course - you to some pretty woman in tight pencil skirts and red lipstick, and me to some hot stud with big muscles and dimples. Who knows, I may not even like dimples." Barry's only response was, "Tight pencil skirts?" Slight AU, BarryXIris
