Author has written 20 stories for Death Note, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Avatar: Last Airbender, Static Shock, Naruto, Batman Beyond, Flash, Young Justice, and Arrow.

My update schedule is sporadic. I used to post regularly but it all depends on time and inspiration which I am lacking in both. I hope to get back in the swing of things, but honestly, I may update a fic every other month.

On a separate note, I take reviews seriously, so if you have constructive feedback, I will do my best to act on it. Speaking of critiques, numerous reviews for "A Little Wake-up Call" are prompting a complete overhaul of the fic when I have time to work on it. I will be going back to address the abundant grammatical and syntactical errors, as well as some characterizations issues. As such, I will likely not update that fic until completing the overhaul.

UPDATE on overhaul--I am up to chapter 6 in the overhaul, but will not upload the edited chapters until I have the first ten finished and have gone back through the first three chapters to perfect. After that, the overhaul should be fairly straightforward and take less time. I don't want to post ch 46 until I have finished the overhaul in case there are changes which need to be reconciled there. I have not given up on this fic and am constantly working on it still, bu this is a slow process. Thank you for your patience. sincerely, DC 10/22/2017

My one-shots will remain one-shots but others are welcome to continue them if they so desire. Usually they were plot ideas or what if scenarios that interested me but that I did not want to continue writing. I have finished three of my fanfics, though I'm debating on making a companion piece for "Gaining Closure." All other stories are works in-progress. "The Tale of Day and Night," an LOTR-Naruto crossover, branches off after a point into "Night without Day" and "The Journey of Day and Night."

I confess, I don't work on "Escape the Hell" or "Escape" much anymore (or at all in the latter's case) because I go to a toxic place when I work on those fics. I wrote them in part because I was hurting from my father's alcoholism, and writing stories where fathers were the villain was how I coped. I am trying to work on my relationship with my father, but in both those fics there's no hope for the fathers in it, and I want to move past that place of negativity.

This is consequently why I will always keep working on the Tale of Day and Night sequels. There is a fairly healthy father-child relationship in those stories, so I genuinely enjoy working on those fics because...well, its healthy for me. I will keep working on it even if the updates are not that frequent and become yearly updates. Part of the reason for the current lack of updates for that fic arises from how much I want to rework the last few chapters but don't have the energy (the changes I would make would impact where the story goes to some extent so I can't just slog through it).

"Batman Beyond--X" will also be updated at some point and return to a monthly update schedule because it is another fic where I try to make a healthy father-child relationship. (I know the relationships in these fics aren't actually all that healthy, but I'm a child of an alcoholic so they're all a hell of a lot better than what I've been dealing with my whole life--sorry if that's TMI but keeping shit like that secret is toxic for yourself and family). So that's my writing in a nutshell :)

Found: Spider-Kid in Need of a Hug by althor42 reviews
The kid was incredible. Jefferson had admitted that to himself early on. But he was a kid, and Jefferson had always known he'd die a kid if no one saved him. The day had finally come that Jefferson thought he'd failed; that Spider-Man had gone to his death, and there was nothing he could do. Things didn't get any easier when the mask came off.

One Eye, Full of Wisdom by MrBright01 reviews
Kakashi survived his losses in spirit as well as in body, and having learned both wisdom and intellect from his experiences, he now seeks to pass those traits on to his students. Story emphasis is on tactical fighting, mind games, adventure, and the occasional bout of humor. GenFic, no story stealing OC's or creepy romance between children. Current Arc: Jashin Needs YOU.

Naruto's Secret by Cerebella Kennor reviews
Naruto had a secret. It was sly, cunning, and actually intelligent of him; so, it was quite unlike him and nobody would believe it. What happens when you start to become the person you're pretending to be and lose sight of your own identity? Boundaries are crossed and lies are told - but they always say that there's a grain of truth in every lie. KakaNaru in a convoluted way.

Batman Beyond--X reviews
Terry could have just as easily received Bruce's spliced X instead of Y; if so, would it have all started with Matt instead? But the world, particularly Gotham, needed a Batman again. The Jokerz overran the streets, business was destroying the world. Pride and avarice were destroying Gotham, and Gotham needed its symbol of hope and justice again. Warning: Language & suggestiveness

One night in 1984 could have gone a number of ways with far reaching consequences. While time sets most things, the ancestors of time travelers are the ones with true freewill. Poor Eobard Thawne, his ancestors are especially bent on free-will and heroics; if only they'd stop f***ing with the timeline he knew. While Eobard waits for his opportunity, the past must still play out.

Getting Home is the Hardest Part reviews
Terry just wanted to get home to his Gotham, not some past one, not some weird alternate dimension one, just home. Who knew time travel and the journey home could be so...troublesome? Rating due to later chapters' suggestive themes, and violence. This is a series of interconnected one-shots, Terry-centric, and with some DC cross-overs, but no main-character OCs.

The Grim Traveler reviews
Kakashi was a relic of the past, a time where children were prepared for devastating war; in fact, his career had revolved around keeping back the threat or war. His brief tenure as Hokage only showed just how dated he was in this new era of peace and technological growth. So...this seemed fitting, a fitting end for a man who had known war for most of his life.

Not So Normal reviews
Hermione Granger had a normal childhood, well, mostly normal. She had a mother and father who were respectable dentists in London. They lived in a quaint home quite contentedly, though they never had family visit because there was no family to visit. It felt like their life in the suburbs was just a façade. This explainable tension existed, but she learned of too late.

Alternative title: Cadmus' Project Batman Beyond Anomaly. Each decision creates a ripple of changes; new possibilities open up and others are shut down.

They were all trying to escape, whether it was from abuse, hate, war, fate; they were all trying to escape. Rated M for mature language, semi-graphic violence, and torture scenes in ch 15. No yaoi, maybe shonen-ai if you squint and tilt your head. ABANDONED

The walls have ears, the walls remember, and no matter how hard we wish, some things can never be forgotten. The sin, the torture, the wrongness of it all - was enough to want to burn the fucking palace to the ground. Rewrite told from Zuko and Azula's perspectives (third person).
