Author has written 8 stories for Jhonen Vasquez, Invader Zim, Insomnia, It, and Batman.
UPDATE (last: 02/03/11)
Hush Little Riddler - For lack of a better title - is my baby at the moment. I've been spending every waking moment working on it in one form or another, be it writing, scheming or research. I've even been writing it in my head at work. It is my attempt to re-write Batman: Hush from the perspective of the crazy bastard who was behind it all in the first place: Edward 'The Riddler' Nigma. I've started from the Lazarus Pit and working my way to the bit where Batman knocks him out. (I want to end with him telling Scarecrow that it was "SO worth it!"). I'm battling with myself on whether-or-not I should allude to the Pushback arc of Gotham Knights (where Hush beats the crap out of Eddie) ie: I could make it a kind of memoir the Riddler writes when he thinks Hush is going to kill him. *FYI: I've been submitting it to my DeviantArt before my FF.net. DevArt address is below*
On the Back-burner: "Valkyrie" (previously "nona") first draft is now complete. PLEASE R&R!

Book I can't peel my nose from at the moment: I'm starting to get into the classic horror: I've just about finished Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and I'm about to start Bram Stoker's Dracula.

My Weaknesses: TradeMe.co.nz. (NZ's equivalent to ebay) 'Nuf said; chocolate; coffee, reading. In no particular order. Though reading trademe goes pretty good with coffee and chocolate.
Thoughts on fanfiction in general: as long as the inspiration is there, I'm fine with it.
Worst sort of fan-fiction do I despise?: Unlikely romances ie: Zim and Gaz, Dib and Tak, etc. If you're gonna write a fan-fic, the least you could do is be true to characters and writers. All the stupid romances do is make a mockery of the original, rather than a homage. ~on second thought, Dib & Tak probably isn't so unlikely..
