Author has written 15 stories for Naruto, Lord of the Rings, Phantom of the Opera, Star Wars, Mad Max, and Serei no Moribito.

Dear Reader: DON'T GIVE UP ON ME! I will finish these stories. I will. Someday. Maybe. Hopefully. ...Actually, let's be honest: you can go ahead and give up on me. Sorry. I suck. Writing is hard.

I used to believe the average age of fanfiction.net users was about 15, making me embarrassingly older than average, but now I think the site has become a tumbleweed-crossed ghost town with only a few old-timers still popping by now and again, which makes me sad. Back in my day, kids, used to be you could post any story, any fandom, and be guaranteed a review within a day of posting. There were THAT MANY PEOPLE on the site! Ain't that something?

Right now my favorite thing is a super obscure anime from 2007 and the (entirely in Japanese but now fan-translated) books from which it came. Seirei no Moribito is this really awesome low-fantasy story about a badass woman warrior who rescues a boy from court intrigue, and if you like good worldbuilding, strong female characters, and expert characterization for even minor folks, you should definitely watch this show.

I am translating a manga that goes with it and you can find the translation on tumblr, where my username is Platypusbutt (platypusbutt . tumblr . com).

I also wrote "The Tragicall History of Romiet and Isilea", which may be found in my "Favorite Stories" section. In case you were wondering, which you were, because I say you were, and I, like God and television, am always right. Isn't that nice?

I am also on Ao3 under the same penname (EvilReceptionistOfDoom) which is where I post most (all?) of my fics these days, on fictionpress.com as WhenceComethThisBoredom (http://www.fictionpress.com/u/530656/) and on deviantArt as haius (haius . deviantart . com). Should you feel so inclined.

ALSO: there's a Moribito Discord now, so PM me if you'd like to join us in our niche fandom... a niche of a niche. Good times. :D

Garak's Letter Back by thebluemeany reviews
From Cardassia, Garak writes to explain why he sent the doctor "A Stitch in Time" (aka. a full length novel addressed directly to Bashir) rather than, you know, just corresponding like a normal person and mailing a letter.

The Vorta by eielsondm reviews
This is my first attempt at fanfic, so I welcome criticism, just try to be kind. I have researched the timeline for the Trek novels and have tried to keep in step with them, so my stories could easily fit into the Voyager book series. Reviews welcome.

The Facebook of Dorian Gray by Sakyla reviews
Basically Dorian Gray and many characters from the book chatting on Facebook. The story is kind of random and extremely loosely based on the book with little chronological order. All characters based on the book. Slightly Dorian X Harry

Binary by Rhinemaiden Number 4 reviews
Flynn adjusts to life as a program, discusses philosophy with Ram, and wonders what an actuarial program really does while killing time in the prison block. Some coarse language and hints of preslash, as well as computer humor. Enjoy.

Brave New World reviews
The Official Founding History tells of the great hero Torgal, the first Mikado; his wise advisor, the first Holy Sage, Kainan Nanai; and how they defeated the Water Demon with the help of the Eight Warriors from whom the Hunters descended. But that version is a state-crafted lie. This story tells what actually happened. This is the actual founding history of Kousenkyo.

Hunters of the Holy Spirit reviews
Filling in the gaps in the show with what the Mikado's Hunters were up to. Will contain: angst, fluff, ninja BFFs, detective work, traumatic brain injury, dad!Mon, a hot-pot party (because when is there NOT a hot-pot party?), angstier angst, fluffier fluff, Shuga, that swordsmith dude, pointless slashiness, minor profanity, and feels. Not just a retelling of the show. Promise.
