Author has written 18 stories for Card Captor Sakura, Kingdom Hearts, D N Angel, Harry Potter, Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, and xxxHOLiC.
Aspiring Artist, Writer, Philosopher.
A bit of a sadist. Fond of gore and horror (but not of the 'vengeful ghosts' variation except in writing).

Avatar image does not belong to me. That's Sugisaki-sensei's. Thanks to Sheryl for making it into an icon for me.
I'm a contradicting idealist; my personal beliefs sometimes go against one another.
I support slash, bio-male and bio-female. Most of all, I support healthy, happy relationships between people.
I hereby solemnly swear to never upload any story that is incomplete on fanfiction.net. So it has been sworn, so mote it be. (25 July 2010)
Understanding the world, one language at a time.
Gaps has been translated into Vietnamese by XiongMao. You can read it here!
Buon Natale has been translated into Vietnamese by phuongtrang. You can read it here
Thank you very much for the translations!
(I really should edit clean up those, now that they've had the honour of being read in a different language...)
Archive of Our Own - Nightmaric. LOOK WHO'S JOINED THE BANDWAGON. I figured it'd be nice to have an account there too (so I can properly keep track of the stories I'm reading lmao). But I'll eventually get to uploading my own stuff there. Eveeentually.
LiveJournal (friends only) - valiantnight. Rants, photos, previews, updates, randomness; this is where they all go. While I've now promised myself that I would not upload any stories I have yet to complete up here, I will post new chapters and stuff on my livejournal to keep track of them. You're welcome to add me, so long as you comment on my first post with the required info (it's on the post).
Requests - Always open. Nothing novel length or anything from fandoms I am not into, however. You could give me the lot of details or you could just give me the most basic idea of what you want and let me work it out myself. Either way, feel free to make a request. I'm always willing to spin a tale.
Slash or None? - Both. I lean towards male slash, which you'd realise if you'd read most of my stories. It depends on the fandom, though. It's not so much the gender than matters than it is how well the characters match one another.
Updates - My updates are NOT on a daily basis, so if you are a reader of my stories, I would appreciate it very much (very, very much) if you were patient, even though I know I'm a wench with my updates. Some of my plots are created as I go along, so there are certain difficulties when writing. If there's a long pause in updates, I'm either busy, procrastinating, having a writer's block or I've forgotten my plot line and am trying to remember it... or I'm just lazy. (hides from flying bricks)
Reviews - So I've learnt the hard way that they do help. A lot. Hence you have my unending gratitude if you decide to leave one. Especially if it's a constructive critique. In the end though, I'm not going to push for reviews because I personally don't always leave one after reading. /shot. But it's also nice if you bother to drop a note to say you enjoyed my story. Thanks!
Any inquiries, just toss me a PM.
For the ones who are after me as a Beta Reader, here's your reference list. If you're looking for something specific, just ctrl f. You can also check my favourite stories for a better idea on what I read.
(And I apologise for the people who are not; the only reason this massive chunk of text is here and not in my beta profile is because the stupid beta profile still has that html bug I've been waiting for the support services to fix BUT THEY HAVE NOT SO-- *SEETHES*
At least they added the 'hide/show bio' feature so you don't have to scroll past this.)
Take heed, all who wish to request for my services: I am a very flexible beta.
Simply request with specifications on what you want for me to look out for and I can bend my style to your needs. No specifications will lead me to only criticise grammar, sentence structures, flow of story and characterisations. Content is up to debate on what sort of story I am beta-reading and whether you require me to take note of it.
Know that I am not against taking up stories that are not centred around my favoured characters (which will be listed alongside the series). However, chances of me accepting such stories are slightly lower, usually dependent on whether I have the time and how long your work is. Those who wish to have pairing centred stories beta read: I have preferred pairings (which will also be listed) but I am open to others. Anything else is, again, really dependent on the details of your story.
o Series I have actually watched/read and have thorough knowledge of.
x Series I have sufficient knowledge of but have not actually watched/read.
(including AUs, Semi-AUs, genderbends; crossovers mainly with HP, others based on suitability)
Anime/Manga - I listed myself under All Anime/Manga for my own convenience, mostly. This is the narrowed down list of what I will willingly beta. Any series outside what I have listed are up to contention; you may bring it up if you wish, but know that there are no guarantees I will take up the task. I read and follow a lot, but I don't want to beta for all of them.
