Author has written 4 stories for William Gibson, Metro 2033, and Final Fantasy VII.


I was dissatisfied with the ending of the videogame CRISIS CORE, so I wrote a new one. This is a full novelization of the game with NEW, EXPANDED, and ORIGINAL story concept, character development, and lore. I am deviating from the set cannon in order to fix plot-holes, allow for cohesive storyline, and overall make sense. I am also changing the target audience to be for mature readers. This story won NANOWRIMO2014, I hope you enjoy it.

"Before Cloud Strife, there was Zack Fair, a young man who carried his mentor’s sword into battle against the Shinra Monarchy. A degrading Archangel will betray his family’s trust to seek the blessing of the Goddess who can save him, plunging the world into darkness around those who fight for honor. A crisis at its core, this story is about the men of SOLDIER and the women who love them."

CHILDREN OF GAIA by VeryHella reviews
AU retelling of the epic FFVII narrative with one significant change; Degradation never occurred; Angeal and Genesis are still active members of SOLDIER, which in turn has retained its status as a force to be reckoned with on par with the recently-decimated Turks. This full reimagining of the story will follow theirs and AVALANCHE's journey from Midgar to Meteorfall.

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, this is the second draft written fifteen years later. It still does not follow Compilation canon, so some may consider this AU.

When the bombs started flying, there wasn't much time to aim. Now that New York City has survived nuclear war, her people must fight to survive nuclear fallout in the Subway. Cut off from the world, besieged by irradiated horrors from the surface, there is no way to know if anyone else even survived the blast. PFC Nikolle Pepaj may have found a way...

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.
