Author has written 69 stories for Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII, Final Fantasy X, Inuyasha, Fullmetal Alchemist, X-Men: The Movie, Hunger Games, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, and Legend of Korra.
Tumblr has eaten me, but I'm still alive. I'm mostly focusing on trying to get my own novel ready for publication, and the fanfiction project I'm currently most invested in is Spirits Cry. Its shaping up to be rather epic. I'll try to be more frequent with story updates, but alas, real life does get in the way.

Song of the Month
Wolf - First Aid Kit
Wolf mother, where you been?
Wolf father, at the door
Holy light, oh, burn the night, oh keep the spirits strong
When I run through the deep dark forest long after this begun
Hey, Hey-Hey, Hey, Hey
Wolf mother, where you been?
Wolf father, at the door
Wayward winds, the voice that sings of a forgotten land
When I run through the deep dark forest long after this begun
Hey, Hey-Hey, Hey, Hey
Poem of the Month:
Invictus- William Ernest Henley
Out of the night that covers me,
In the fell clutch of circumstance
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
It matters not how strait the gate,
"The people and the friends we have lost...or the dreams that have faded...never forget them." - Yuna FFX
"Most reforms, most problems are complicated. But to me, there was Nothing complicated about normal Equality." -Alice Paul, Chairman of the Nation Women's Party.
"...Where God went Wrong, Some more of God's Mistakes, and WHO is this God person Anyway?" -Hitchikers' Guide to the Galaxy (Movie)
"Will you go Penguin Sledding with me?" Aang to Katara in Avatar the Last Airbender
"You know Minister...I disagree with Dumbledore on many counts...but you cannot deny He's got style." -Phenieas Negellus, one of the portraits on Dumbledore's wall.
"No dragons were harmed in the making of this film." -Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire credits
"Let's do it to it!" -Sonic the Hedgehog Archie Comics
"You'll find that many truths we cling to depend often on your own point of view."- Obi Wan Kanobi
"I wanted you to know what real courage is, instead of thinking that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're 'licked before you begin, but you begin anyway, and you see it through no matter what." -Atticus Finch, To Kill a Mockingbird
"We may never meet again, but we'll never forget each other."- Leon (Squall) Kingdom Hearts
"We have just witnessed what I like to call 'misdirected rage'. I believe the technical term is 'being an ass.' " -Shigure, Fruits Basket Anime (?)
"Follow the spiders? Why couldn't it be follow the butterflies?"- Ron Weasley, HP & the Chamber of Secrets (Movie)
"Sometimes, when we lose ourselves in fear and despair, in routine and constancy, in hopelessness and tragedy, we can thank God for Bavarian sugar cookies. And, fortunately, when there aren't any cookies, we can still find reassurance in a familiar hand on our skin, or a kind and loving gesture, or subtle encouragement, or a loving embrace, or an offer of comfort, not to mention hospital gurneys and nose plugs, an uneaten Danish, soft-spoken secrets, and Fender Stratocasters, and maybe the occasional piece of fiction. And we must remember that all these things, the nuances, the anomalies, the subtleties, which we assume only accessorize our days, are effective for a much larger and nobler cause. They are here to save our lives. I know the idea seems strange, but I also know that it just so happens to be true. And, so it was, a wristwatch saved Harold Crick."- Kay Eiffel, Stranger than Fiction
"Because it's a book about a man who doesn't know he's about to die. And then dies. But if a man does know he's about to die and dies anyway. Dies- dies willingly, knowing that he could stop it, then- I mean, isn't that the type of man who you want to keep alive?" -Kay Eiffel, Stranger than Fiction
"I guess it's hard for people who are so used to things the way they are - even if they're bad - to change. 'Cause they kind of give up. And when they do, everybody kind of loses." -Trevor McKinny, Pay it Forward movie
"Life is pain, highness. Anyone who tells you differently is selling something." -The Princess Bride
"No one ever listens to a teenager. They don't know the wars we fight every single day. One day my war will end. And...I will not die. And I will not tolerate abuse- from anyone. I am strong." Brandy, Freedom Writers
"Despite all your faults, the one who truly loves you will STILL think the sun shines outta your ass."- Mr. Mguff, Juno
"Oh see, now that pisses me off. First of all, since the demur we have more than 400 plaintiffs and... let's be honest, we all know there are more out there. They may not be the most sophisticated people but they do know how to divide and 20 million isn't shit when you split it between them. Second of all, these people don't dream about being rich. They dream about being able to watch their kids swim in a pool without worrying that they'll have to have a hysterectomy at the age of twenty. Like Rosa Diaz, a client of ours. Or have their spine deteriorate, like Stan Blume, another client of ours. So before you come back here with another lame ass offer, I want you to think real hard about what your spine is worth, Mr. Walker. Or what you might expect someone to pay you for your uterus, Ms. Sanchez. Then you take out your calculator and you multiply that number by a hundred. Anything less than that is a waste of our time." Erin, Erin Brockovitch the movie
"You make my heart soar like a hawk." -Little Big Man
"Wizard's First Rule: people are stupid. People are stupid; almost anyone can be convince to believe almost anything." -Zedd, Wizard's First Rule
"If there's one thing I hate more than prophecy, its self-fulfilling prophecy." -Bill Maher, Religilous.
"The greatest tragedy is not the brutality of evil people, but rather the silence of the good people." - Martin Luther King Jr.
"Look Kyle, that's the way the world works! In order to find friends you have to get through all the dicks first!" -Cartman, South Park
"The hardest thing in this world is to live in it." Buffy, Buffy The Vampire Slayer
"I'm afraid we have a slight...apocalypse." Giles, Buffy The Vampire Slayer
"Its like we're in the crazy, backwards universe!"
"Where up is down and boy bands play instruments." Carver, then Tino, The Weekenders
"I’ll tell them how I survive it. I’ll tell them that on bad mornings, it feels impossible to take pleasure in anything because I’m afraid it could be taken away. That’s when I make a list in my head of every act of goodness I’ve seen someone do. It’s like a game. Repetitive. Even a little tedious after more than twenty years. But there are much worse games to play." - Katniss, Mockingjay
"You always believe in other people, but that's easy. Sooner or later, you gotta believe in yourself, too, because that's what growing up is. It's becoming who you want to be. You have to try." - Gary, The Muppets (2011)
"Nothing is written in stone, child. Even if it were, the stones could be shattered." - Andrade, Dragon Prince
"There is only one god, and his name is death. And what do we say to the god of death? Not today." - Syrio, Game of Thrones

Favorite Movie Scene of the Week:
Scene from: Spirited Away
Chihiro: Haku, listen. I just remembered something from a long time ago, I think it may help you. Once, when I was little, I dropped my shoe into a river. When I tried to get it back I fell in. I thought I'd drown but the water carried me to shore. It finally came back to me. The river's name was the Kahaku river. I think that was you, and your real name is Kahaku river.

"...Mikey lies in his room, in his big-boy room. He lies on the bare floor, his fingertips stretched to the snakes in the electrical outlet...Mikey lies on the bare floor of his big-boy room, his eyes open and empty. Children don't die. Not really, not really, they don't die. They can't. They are wound up, charged with enough energy, enough juice, to carry them for seventy, seventy-five years.
