Author has written 5 stories for Avatar: Last Airbender, Young Justice, and Batman.

I am working on the second part of my Avatar: The Last Airbender fanfic of epic proportions featuring Zuko, Iroh, and other characters (as well as one of my own, natch!). I enjoy reading other quality ATLA fanfiction as well as ATLA & TLOK fan art, etc. I am also working on a Young Justice Nightwing x OC fic, as well as a Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess Link x OC fic (I love those OC's)!

To get myself in the MOOD for writing the semi-tragic love story between Zuko and Lan Chi, my OC, I have been listening to "Chasing Cars," by Snow Patrol (for the the characters' emotions), and "Sex on Fire," by Kings of Leon (for their other - er - feelings). And, of course, my new personal fave, "This Head I Hold," by Electric Guest. If you haven't heard it, check out their website and video. You will thank me!

I am also a HUGE fan of Johane Matte, an Avatar illustrator. She did a FABULOUS fan comic featuring Zhao (I know - crazy, right?) that made me think about Mr. Hothead a little differently. It can be found at the following link: http://noselfcontrol.deviantart.com/art/Water-Tribe-001-69837313

Read it! You won't be sorry! (By the way, there is an absolutely HOT picture of her version of adult Zuko at the end)

I also enjoy Blackadder, Young Justice, Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch's eyes TOTALLY creep me out - in a good way), Red Dwarf, and Justified, as well as Legend of Zelda, especially Twilight Princess.

P/M me if you have any questions about the tale, or if you find a mistake, anachronism, problem, etc. After all, two sets of eyes are better than one! You can also send me a P/M if you just want to chat about ATLA or such!

Thanks go out to animechick247 and jrba95 for their WONDERFUL fanart of my main character (and Zuko!) - check them both out on deviantart under those names. I am so lucky to have such great, TALENTED readers!!!

By the way, a note on my reviews: I am a dedicated reader and reviewer of fanfics. However, I will lay out some of the tenets that I live by as a reader and a reviewer. Firstly, I do not review a fic until I have read it all (or all that is available online). I feel that, to do so is to review something that is incomplete, and the review ends up being irrelevant and erroneous. Secondly, and most importantly, I will never post a negative review. If I find a problem with a fic, whether it be pacing or characterizations or typos or whatever, I will PM the author. I feel that to post a negative review is unkind and unnecessary. No one needs to have their creations, upon which they probably slaved for months, criticized in a PERMANENT, public forum. It does nothing for an author's self-esteem, and negativity and criticism only squelch the creative process, in my opinion. If you want to extend the same courtesy to me, I very much appreciate it. I always welcome constructive criticism (especially via PM), since it frequently helps me to correct a problem in my narrative that I did not know existed.

That's my two cents.

Fire and Ice by LadyAvatar reviews
One banished prince. One feared Fire Lord. One red string of fate binding a young waterbender's destiny to each. In a Zutara epic that moves beyond love, beyond fate, we begin with nothing more than a simple question: What if Zuko joined the team following "The Chase?" But when you change one thing, you change everything.

The Seduction of Earth King Kuei by proudinfidel reviews
A/U Crackship pairing in which Ursa uses her feminine charms and herbal therapy to convince King Kuei to call off the war. Takes place sometime during The Promise 3. No lemons, just some citrus juice/implied situations; more humor than anything else. I figure, she murdered someone for Zuko, why wouldn't she do other things for him? LOL! Ursa, Kuei, Sokka, Zuko.

Shatter Me reviews
Women liked Dick Grayson. Actually, they loved him. And he loved them right back. However, his life as Nightwing gave him very little chance to have a normal love life. So, when he met Devon Wakeman, a seemingly very normal woman, Dick wasn't really sure what to do. Nightwing, however, knew exactly what to do... even though Devon was NOT what she seemed. Giveaway in chapter 75!
