Author has written 7 stories for William Gibson, Final Fantasy VII, and Star Wars.

Team Wingless is an author/artist duo based out of New York City who have rewritten the story of Final Fantasy 7 for a rational audience.

Upon playing the game CRISIS CORE during a season of fighting forest fires in Yellowstone National Park, the author was drawn into the story of a government worker, which was relatable to the author's own circumstances. But upon experiencing the ludicrous ending, and being dazed by the widespread acclaim it received from blindly-devout fans, the team set out to rewrite the entire story in a sensible manner for great justice.

What started as a literary experiment has evolved into a stance against fanfiction, brand loyalty, and plebianism. We hope that you will enjoy reading our stories as much as we suffered writing them.

Full 360 degree Character Development and backstory of each character in addition to new ones

Complete scrap and rewrite of everything that happens after the level titled JUNON

Complete scrap, redev, and reskin of the character AERITH

A relationship development between the character ZACK and his girlfriend

Slight deviation and redevelopment of the character CLOUD

Expansion of the “Nibelheim Massacre”

Transition of primary antagonist from Sephiroth to Genesis

A full 360 degree development of the character SEPHIROTH

Merged Universes from multiple Final Fantasy games—the inclusion of Lightning and Noctis into the FF7 storyarc (with a complete scrap of everything after FF12).

SOLDIER by Clement Rage reviews
Pearl Matheson is accepted as the first woman in SOLDIER. It's not quite what she expected. NOT A PARODY. No OC/Canon Character romance. Rating may rise.

The Jenova Project by Mr. Ite reviews
This is a novelization of Final Fantasy VII. It was originally written before the Compilation existed, and has been tinkered with across the years. It still does not follow Compilation canon, so some may consider this AU. Book I fully uploaded.

Star Wars VII, The Force Awakens REIMAGINED by xisinj64 reviews
Taking to heart the criticisms against Force Awakens for its unoriginality and plethora of poorly explained story elements, I have decided to do a rewrite of the Force Awakens, salvaging what parts of it I can to a more original narrative within Star Wars. The journey is different, characters underused are used, but the ending is the same broadly. Biggest change: No Starkiller base

An experimental piece in the same universe as "Ch0023r." Diode-tripping through cyberspace and the imagery invoked along the way. This seemed like more of what WG was going for in terms of futuristic user-interface.

Ch0023r reviews
An original fragment written in the literary style of Neuromancer, with original themes independent of any of WG's work. Pronounced "Chooser," this is an experiment in taking cyberpunk into the videogame scene. Emphasis on style rather than story.
