Author has written 3 stories for Yu Yu Hakusho.

Against the Grain and With the Tide are now finished! And Into the Miasma is finally, finally done. Gravity has been taken down because it needs to be completely revamped, y'know, again. Not sure when--or if--I'll return to that one. We shall see!

So, life update: I graduated from college, got certified to teach, got a job teaching, promptly resigned for many reasons... too numerous to list here. Suffice to say, teaching has to be a vocation, has to be your life's purpose--or you're just going to be miserable. Simple as that.

My husband (two years married in February '18!) is one of those crazy people who enjoys teaching. Teaching is most certainly his life's purpose; he's known that for a while. Me? Not too sure. I'm vaguely aware that it has something to do with writing, so as of late, my time has been spent doing just that. I will be participating in nanowrimo this year, and my username is "crossyourteez" (Duh.) Come find me!

Also, for all the years I've been here, I've kept my "fanfiction life" separate from my "real life" as a rule, but pretenses are dumb. My username on Instagram is "marylcov." Let's get to know each other!

Story theme songs (for past, present, and future stories) are at the bottom of the page!

This would be where I put the link to my Tumblr account... IF I HAD ONE. Sorry y'all, it takes a looong time to go back and edit every mention of my ill-fated blog out of the author's note, but you didn't come here in vain! Have a squee-dorable video of a lamb bouncing down a hallway.

Gravity by Vir M reviews
Lest her suppressed psychic powers eat her alive, Miranda must be mentored by a demon with abilities similar to her own.

Too bad you can't blame gravity for falling in love... Jin/OC
