Author has written 22 stories for Strawberry Panic!, Claymore, Elfen Lied, Shiki, Baldur's Gate, Mass Effect, and Harry Potter.

Hello there. After having had that same simple 'favorites' lists up which I whipped together quickly on a blue monday in 2007 up for years, I figured it was time for a proper profile page.

So, welcome to my little corner on FF. which is a home for my writings, mostly for my Baldur's Gate Tankards and Tempers, affectionately called TnT. TnT tells the tale of the elven Bhaalspawn Laska Leafwalker. A young, plucky, chaotic and downright violent elf at that. My older Strawberry Panic stories can also be found here.

Current projects -Tankards and Tempers - My first fanfic, centered around Baldur's Gate. Still ongoing on a BG fansite called the Attic and spanning over 230 chapters. I'm going to be improving the earlier chapters (this story started 10 years ago and is in need of a proper cleaning) and post one a day. It will have absurd humor, high adventure and, in line with my other stories, plenty of femslash. I hope you'll enjoy reading it as much as I have had writing it. The plan is to have 3 updates a week, but the update schedule is highly dependent on the time I have.

Murder Most Horrid - Diving into the Harry Potter Universe due to a recently developed Bellatrix/Hermione vice, this is an AU where Bellatrix is a detective investigating a murder at Hogwarts, and Hermione happens to be her prime suspect. This is a story in three acts which are self-contained but interconnected tales. Update schedule for Murder Most Horrid is

Opposites - A Strawberry Panic story about how Shion and Chikaru became girlfriends, with a sidetrack of Shizuma x Kaori. - Ongoing. Updates will come as I have time.

Life Sucks! - Another love of mine is Claymore, and this story is a longish sage about Claymores (being confirmed in canon as Undying, apparently) as immortal beings trying to find a place for themselves in modern times, with all drama and hilarity it causes. - Ongoing. Updates will come as I have time.

For those interested in my Strawberry Panic story, it's important to note is that practically all of my Strawberry Panic stories are related, taking place in the same 'continuous universe' I created as it were, though most stories can be read on their own without much trouble. I was once asked what the chronological order of my stories would be if one would want to read them back to back. Well, here goes -

Opposites (as of yet unfinished) -> Pining for the Fjords -> Everybody Loves Yaya -> Yaya for President -> Happy Happy Joy Joy -> Endless Love -> We're all going on a... summer holiday -> Hello Work! -> Strawberry Weddings. So, there you go.

Anyway, as always, I hope you enjoy. :)
