"...brevity is the soul of wit." ~ Hamlet, Act. II scene ii


Edit [May 2015] So it's been not quite five years... Life happens, what can I say? I've still got two stories that I intend on completing and they'll get done when they do. If you're reading this, thank you for your patience. I'd rather post them as complete works rather than update chapter by chapter because then I couldn't guarantee that the stories would actually be completed.

Upcoming Projects

1. Tennis Trilogy Parts II and III (15-30 is part I or "15, 30" because FFnet hates dashes)

1A. Break Point (I fell into a hole in the plot and am still digging my way out five years later)

1B. Untitled Part III (I always thought I'd get this trilogy finished before certain plot points actually became real but history has proven me wrong and that's fine by me)

2. An editing overhaul of all the stories I have on this website but which I'll probably post to AO3 so I can keep the ones here archived as original, non-edited works for my own amusement and learning.

3. Probably something else? Who knows?

Thanks for reading my work all, both now and in the future.
