Author has written 4 stories for Inheritance Cycle, Trinity Blood, Yu Yu Hakusho, Fate/stay night, and Naruto.
Have been writing and reading for years; returning now after a long hiatus from my first story. I keep the story in question, my first published one here, up only to remind myself never to write such Mary Sue poor quality stuff ever again, to remind myself of how far I've come.
My second published story, Half-Breed Lifemate, is something I will perhaps return to someday. Until then, it is on official hiatus.
Finally, my recent story, after years of not posting. I may continue if interest is displayed, or if my own interest goes further. Would prefer a couple reviews for it, if you can take the time for it.
Now posting on ao3 under DeerShifter

Topics I Cover/Bibliography of Controversial issues:
Sometimes I feel a story needs to cover an important issue. If I cannot explain the full extent in my author notes, I will occasionally post a link here to explain the topic more fully. Especially if it's an ethical issue, or one that carries a lot of myths attached. Expect more links in the future.
Sexual Violence Basics: Power And Control. http :// www . consented . ca / basics / power-and-control / Links to the ConsentEd website, and includes definitions of what constitutes sexual violence, sexual assault, the reasons behind it, the myths -- actually, a lot of information. This particular link explains the power dynamics and control stealing involved at the root, with sex itself limited to the method used to gain it. Let's debunk a culture that accepts sexual violence as the norm.
How to explain Consent: Consent Metaphor Explained With Tea http :// www. theloop. ca/ this-woman-just explained-consent-with-the-most-perfect-metaphor/ Replace 'Do you want to have sex' with 'do you want a cup of tea?' It covers the issues of consent, when someone is capable or incapable of giving it, when they are no longer capable of giving it, and every other possibility of situation changes. Stand up for your rights as an individual, and do not presume that another person wants it and continues to want it.

Current Stories Status:
Uncertain Love: Complete.
Half-Breed Lifemate: on official hiatus.
Fire and Ice: Chapter 11 and 12 done and up in a double Thanksgiving update. Chapter 13 up in a surprise addition to the double update. Chapter 14 posted January 3. Real life is school, so no promises on updates before spring break, though I'll try. Hiei's thoughts and emotional issues are not playing nice, and neither is the Human world transition. Would love reviews with questions about the characters and plot details - sometimes that triggers a chapter that I wouldn't think to write otherwise. Those that have already done so, you've been very helpful. Please keep it up. In planning stages for chapter 15. (Note: As of 7/20/15, this story is on hiatus until further notice -- i'm having trouble maintaining interest in either of its fandoms.)
Contractual Obligations: Prologue thru Chapter 6 posted -- will start planning next chapter tomorrow. Still planning overall arc map and middle for this story, but I have a firm idea of much of the end. Suggestions and comments welcome. thanks for the reviews, guys!
