Author has written 18 stories for Final Fantasy XII, Final Fantasy VII, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, and Fallout.

I like to write for fun. Sometimes I'd get some ideas I'd have to get it out of my head before I could function normally. So here they are for your entertainment. Hopefully they are as fun for you to read as it is for me to write.

2/4/2013:

Apologies to everyone who's been reading The Rose of Highever. Too many things happened since last update, and I stopped writing for more than a year. Now that things have finally calmed down and I've recovered, I've started writing again after finishing Mass Effect 3 three weeks ago. So far there're roughly more than 20000 words. It's my way of saying goodbye to my Shepard. Maybe, once I'm done with that story, getting it out of my system, I might pick up Samantha Cousland's story again. Thank you for reading.

10/18/2013:

Almost done with part 1 of Chronicles of a Legend. Part 2 will be posted as a new story. If you want an alert for update but don't have an account here, you can go to my tumblr page and follow there, I'll update it with every chapter. Feel free to contact me either here, tumblr, or gmail (pinoko19).

As of Rose of Highever, it's still on hold. Sorry about that.

4/16/2015:

Part 2 of Chronicles of a Legend is done. Starting part 3. Stay tune.

Godsent, Regrettably by SilverKnight reviews
Some people just can't catch a break in life. For Sephiroth, it seems that breaks come as rarely as haircuts, as he's chosen by the Planet to redeeem himself for his past transgressions - whether he actually WANTS to or not. Rejoice.

Campfire Tales from the Commonwealth reviews
Random short stories from the Wasteland. They are definitely not to be taken seriously. Really. Chapter 1: Every faction has a secret weapon. The Brotherhood has a giant robot.
