Author has written 41 stories for X-Men: The Movie, X-Files, Ultimate Marvel, X-Men, Harry Potter, and Twilight.

Minisinoo has been writing fiction since she was eleven years old and got bored with the usual "write a sentence which uses this vocabulary word" exercise in 6th grade English class. Her sentences turned into paragraphs, and the paragraphs turned into little stories . . . and she just kept on telling stories for the next 30 years. She comes by storytelling honestly, having been born into a family of storytellers. In native tradition, storytelling is "sacred business." Sure, storytellers entertain, but Min likes to tell stories that might actually "mean something," too (and how's that for arrogant?).

Min has penned a number of X-Men, Harry Potter & even a few Twilight stories, and has been given over 25 different awards and a wide variety of recs and reviews. Previously, much of her fiction (especially the longer works) were not available on this site, due to ratings. She will be gradually posting them here, but please pay attention to warnings, especially on the novels, as Min writes literary mainstream fiction by trade, and not everything is suitable for minors.

For those looking, The Medicine Wheel is now permanently offline and Min has retired from active participation in fanfiction. She leaves up the stories here for reader enjoyment but no longer answers email.

Grail: a novel of resurrection reviews
At Alkali Lake, Jean Grey gave her life to save her fellows. But if so, what's risen from the water? A little bit ghost story, a little bit mystery, a little bit suspense. Occurs after X-Men 2, does not assume X-Men 3. This is my own Dark Phoenix Saga; semi-sequel to SPECIAL, with X-Men 1 and 2 in between.

Prequel, coming-of-age. We follow Scott Summers from just before his arrival at Westchester until the Senate Hearings at the start of the X-Men film. Dark, intense, but a story of healing. Sometimes sons & fathers choose each other. Winner of 3 awards.

Logan and Scott are held prisoner; the descent of the hero and his redemption. Winner of 5 awards, including Hall of Fame. This is dark, if no tragedy.
