Author has written 8 stories for Legend of Zelda, Pokémon, and Misc. Games.

Forever busy.


Hi, I used to write under a different username, but that account has long since been abandoned. You can call me either Glitch or Windskull, I will respond to either. I can be found both on AO3 and Tumblr under the same username, and I have more stuff posted to Ao3 than I do here. For story progress updates and illustrations, check Tumblr! I'm also active on the Thousand Roads pokemon forums, if you want to check me out there.

I have a pretty wide variety of interests, but I mostly only read pokemon fanfic. There's just something about the creativity of the pokemon fandom, particularly pmd, that keeps drawing me back. Compared to other fandoms I've read stuff from in the past, there's such a huge variety in tone and content, and just so much vastly different stuff, that I can't help but find myself drawn in.


Current Projects:

PWCH: Editing chapter 9 and working on an interlude chapter.

THoaH: Recently posted chapter 29, gearing up for a big push to draft as much as possible during the month of November. Expect no updates before December.
