Author has written 16 stories for Yu-Gi-Oh, Final Fantasy VII, Wolf's Rain, Naruto, and Final Fantasy XV.

Tuesday 18/October/2016 - Chapter 53 "Renascence" of Paper Roses is finally uploaded! Thanks for being so patient everyone!! xxx

Chapters 1 through 7 of Paper Roses are completely rewritten to flow better and correspond with the story as a whole.

I am slowly rewriting the earlier chapters of Paper Roses and plan to revise every chapter up to the very latest. I began writing the story more than seven years ago and I've overlooked some silly typos and a couple of dodgy passages. All in all, my writing has changed over seven years and I'd like the story to be of the same standard throughout.

I managed to fall head over heels back into the FFVII fandom after years of YuGiOh and I've been bitten by the plotbunny bug all over again, so expect a few oneshots to crop up.

Hi there and welcome to my little corner of the internet! I'm 25 and from the south-east of Ireland. Writing breaks up the monotony whenever I overcome my procrastination.

My usual haunt is over at Tumblr, come visit! -

In regards to stories I have posted here, I joined this site well over eight years ago and my writing has thankfully improved since then. A lot of the older stories are still in the cringe-worthy Mary-Sue stage and I just haven't gotten around to deleting them yet. As it stands, the only stories in a somewhat readable condition would be the following:

"Paper Roses"- The story that I'm currently working on, and have been for six years straight. The early chapters are currently being re-written, but the only story I'm actually pleased with.

"Ties of Love and Eternity" - Originally written way back in 2007, this little oneshot was rewritten in 2016 and I have a soft-spot for it as it's the first Seto and Kisara story I ever wrote.

"Seto x Kisara Week Prompts" - A collection of eight oneshots written for Seto x Kisara Week 2015 on Tumblr.

"Silent Secrets" - I have begun to rework the entire published content of this fic to better fit the canon of Wolf's Rain, so it's not completely abandoned.

"I Surrender Everything" - Name needs a change! The opening chapter of this is fine for the plot's introduction and I have quite a lot of the story planned out and semi-written ... I'm just focusing on Paper Roses at the moment.

"Red & Moon" - Again, the latter two or three chapters are okay, but everything else needs to be re-worked!

"Why Do You Have A Claw On Your Hand?" - The only one I'm happy to say is fine, and that's because it's a little oneshot!!
