Author has written 18 stories for Phantom of the Opera, Naruto, and Star Wars.

Welcome to my profile! I guess I should tell you a bit about myself now that you've made the effort to click on my pen name. Lets see, where to begin...I've been writing for, well, as long as I can remember. I mostly write original stories, though I've also written some LotR fan fiction (if you can count it, since I don't use any character from LotR, just Middle-earth itself). Anyway, I lately stumbled across this site and have been reading some awesome fan fiction, which has inspired me to try my hand at it.


July 16, 2009

I think I'm getting back into the swing of things now. I've posted two new chapters for Let the World Crash in the last two weeks and hope to post the final chapter next week.

Today, I also posted the first chapter of a new story I have started. Unfortunately, this is not one of the ones I've been working on, but a new story that evolved from a one-shot into a more complex tale. It's a romantic thriller, which is completely new for me, so I'm crossing my fingers and hoping for the best. Not sure when I'll be updating it again though. Oh, and it contains the phrase 'heaving bosoms' (in a non-smutty context), which makes me laugh every time I read it. Please check it out!


My current projects are:

Let the World Crash: Naruto fanfic, sequel to Dance with the Devil. Hana has left Konoha to pursue Itachi. Her village, however, isn't so willing to let her go. Updates once a week.

Red Herring: Multi-chaptered Naruto fanfic. Alternate Universe. Shino and Ino find themselves in the fight of their lives when a psychopath chooses Shino--a novelist--as his next victim. Shino writes thrillers for a living, but can he solve the one that has just been dropped into his lap before Ino's time runs out?

Breaking His Bonds: Naruto fanfic. Sasuke is ready to break the last of his ties to Konoha and he's chosen Hinata as his way to get to Naruto. Will be continued as inspiration allows.

Projects on Hiatus

Hope Denied: Star Wars fanfic. An AU based off what might have happened had Luke failed to destroy the first Death Star. On temporary hiatus.

Nagareboshi: ("Shooting Star") Naruto fanfic. Sasuke has succeeded in rescuing Hinata and has taken his brother as a prisoner. Will Itachi be able to fit back into his home village, or is the power offered by Akatsuki too tempting to resist? ItaHana. Second in the Star Duology. On temporary hiatus due to college craziness.

Koika: A PotO fanfic set in feudal Japan. I was struck by this idea since I am fascinated with the Japanese culture and, when I checked, it didn't look like anyone else had used the idea. This story is on hiatus because I have run out of inspiration for it. I hope to resume it at some point in the future.

Future Projects :

Untitled: An as yet unnamed fanfic. This will be another PotO story, also set in an alternate universe. This one will involve a world where everything must be perfect. Those things that are not are either conformed to standards or eliminated by government operatives. Mix Christine, the newest diva at the Opera House; Raoul, a captain of the force organized to ensure that the country is a utopia; and Erik, a deformed genius who lives beneath the Opera House. Shake well. Watch the fun. =) I'm looking forward to this story. It should be pretty cool.

Completed Projects:

Miru Hoshi: ("Star-gazing") Naruto Fanfic. After eight years, Sasuke returns to Konoha. His plan is to rebuild the Uchiha clan, but will things go exactly as he has planned? SasukexHinata Romance/Adventure. First in the Star Duology

When You Say You Love Me: Naruto fanfic, set at the same time as Miru Hoshi. Ino Yamanaka has given up on ever gaining Sasuke as her own, so she sets her sights on a different dark-haired, stoic ninja--Shino! This is the story of her desperate and sometimes underhanded attempts to gain Shino's love. Hmm, the way I describe it makes it sound like it's a comedy, but I promise it isn't.

Uchiha Itachi: Cheap- An AU two-shot starring Itachi and Hana. A very good, quick read. Sometimes perceptions must be overcome before love has a chance to bloom

Dance With the Devil: Another Naruto song-fic. This one is semi-based on "Dance With the Devil" by Breaking Benjamin. Itachi X Hana

Stutter and All: Naruto Fic. Four-shot. Non-massacre AU in which Hinata and Sasuke go out on a mission, find true love, and more problems than they could have imagined. Sorta. Go ahead and read it, you know you want to.

After the Avenger: My first one-shot. While traveling with Team Hebi, Sasuke meets up with some Konoha nin who just might change his mind about his future. SasuHina

A New Beginning: Naruto fanfic. Sequel to After the Avenger. Sasuke has finally killed his older brother. Now, he will be confronted with a choice: to return to Konoha, or continue down the path of revenge. SasuHina

It's Not Over: A SasuHina four-shot based on the song 'It's Not Over' by Chris Daughtry. Not your typical song fic.

Explosion: A NejiTen one-shot. Beware, or the fluff with smother you.

Moonlight: An ItaSaku one-shot based off "The Highwayman" by Alfred Noyes.

Awakening: Two-shot. A look back at how Fugaku and Mikoto's relationship might have formed.

Gothic Romance: One-shot. First in the Cliche series. This one tackles the much-used 'Sasuke is a vampire' theme.
