Author has written 22 stories for Final Fantasy VII, xxxHOLiC, and Firefly.

"Too much hope is the opposite of despair, an overpowering love may consume you in the end." -Vincent Valentine

About me:

My world revolves around food-husband-sleep-work-fanfiction, though not in that particular order, since it's subject to change at any given moment.

My LJ is linked as my homepage. There is more fiction (as in -1000 word drabbles) there if you care to take a peek! I'm there a lot more than I am here.

I have a tendency to thread my fiction around romance; so if you're completely opposed to it for some reason, this is not the place for you.

I Love: xxxHOLiC, Final Fantasy of all types, Trigun, Ranma 1/2, Tsubasa, Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, Bleach, and anything written by Sharon Shinn, Stephen King, or Jennifer Crusie.

I highly recommend these stories:

FFVII:

Shera's Diary by KSipesh. it's a wonderful account of Cid and Shera's relationship, and it's complete, too. She's also got Cid's side of the story in progress. Check it out!

Metathesiophobia by Lady Calliope. A stunning exploration of an unexpected pairing: Tifa and Cid. Also complete, and absolutely beautiful.

I also recommend anything by: The Tiramisu of Impending Doom, thelittletree, Darknightdestiny, Erse, Horky, Sabriel41, motchi or absolutely any of the oneshots off my favorites list. Seriously, there are some amazing ones.

xxxHOLiC:

Extenuating Circumstances by rallamajoop. It's hilarious, original (although the basis is a gen-fic cliche), wryly funny without being overly romantic. Both Watanuki and Doumeki are kept remarkably in-character, too. If it was going to happen, it'd happen like this. Rated T for a reason, though not explicit.

Realization and Realization and Relief by Viv N -Childish Grin. Two companion pieces that are the same(ish) events from both Watanuki and Doumeki's perspectives. Suspenseful, heart-wrenching and horrific in places, with just enough romance and humor to dig itself into my soul. Also amazingly in-character, and another if-its-going-to-happen-its-going-to-happen-like-this tale.

Read and Review any POVs by WatanuKimihiro! She's done a great job with xxxHolic and TRC!

About my stories:

"Because Love" is a song-fiction series that follows the course of Watanuki and Doumeki's romantic relationship; I am always open to song suggestions.

"On A Mission" was written by my husband, who doesn't write much, but is much better at action writing than I am. Figures.

All my "Perspectives" are one-shots based around events in the manga, explorations of emotions and motivations.
