Author has written 44 stories for Metal Gear, Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII, Lord of the Rings, Kingdom Hearts, and Final Fantasy I-VI.
Update on 7/16: I don't know if anybody ever checks my profile, but if you do, this is a very quick update to say that the reason for the lack of updates lately has been that on July 5th, we gave birth to our first daughter, Kairi Elanor. (Well, I guess I gave birth to her--Billy, while immensely present and supportive and I couldn't have done it without him did not actually have much part in the literal sense of the birth...)
The last several weeks of my pregnancy were spent working a LOT of overtime trying to get ready for my maternity leave (I'm an administrative/HR supervisor for a major retail chain in real life so trying to train my replacement and make sure I was leaving the office as organized and user-friendly as possible was quite a task!), as well as nesting/trying to get the house ready for a third person to live here, and spending as much time with Billy as possible, on top of being dead tired and incredibly foggy-brained. So with all of that, it was really hard to concentrate on even catching up reading other stories, much less trying to work on my own. Then the last week and a half (almost two weeks--the fastest 11 days I've ever experienced!) have been, needless to say, wholly focused on Kairi.
I don't know when I'll be able to start writing again--soon, I hope. All the books/websites say it takes about 6 weeks to establish a routine, and of course that's about when I'll be heading back to work, but at least some of the fog in my head is starting to clear, which means while I may not have time to sit down and write, I should at least be able to get partly back into that headspace and start working on it mentally. At the very least, I have the better part of an FST I need to finalize so that will at least be something. I also started a one-shot consistent with the universe in "The Successor," so if nothing else maybe I can post a few of those!
-Married, cosplayer, tree-hugger, dreamer, foodie, coffee-addict. I enjoy red wine and dark beer, reading non-fiction, and being outdoors as much as possible.
-My main fandom is FFVIII, and has been for quite awhile. I love Rinoa, I love Squall, and I love them together, but I also love exploring all the different relationships in this game. I think the storyline is quite dark and the character all rather damaged, so a lot of what I write looks into that--or at least, attempts to.
-I am finally venturing into writing more than just one-shots, though they are still more my comfort zone. Once I'm done with "The Successor," I think I may actually start posting something I started a couple of years ago that I actually got pretty far on. I have a few other longer stories I may never post since they're more or less just me exploring my post-game headcanon.
-That headcanon is very large and extensive, and I will happily talk about it with anyone. This also goes back to the fact that I think these characters are very damaged people, both before and after the game.
-I title my stories after songs, though very, very rarely write songfics. A tv show I watch does this with their episode titles and I liked the idea, so started using that several years ago. The content of the song very rarely has anything to do with the content of the story, and if it does, it will be stated in an author's note.
-I have made a lot of really awesome friends through fandom. I won't list them here because not all are on ffnet, and I know I will forget someone anyway, but I love our little community, and am forever grateful for the friendships I have. I am summonerluna most places online (tumblr, dA, LJ, etc...), so anyone who visits those other places as well, I would love to connect.
-I attend Katsucon and Anime USA annually, and make it Dragon*Con as often as possible, with the occasional guest appearances at Otakon. Now that our family is growing cons will be a bit more interesting to manage, but if you go to any of these I would love to say hello!
