Author has written 12 stories for Bleach, Batman the Animated Series, Final Fantasy XII, Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy VIII, Terminator, and Final Fantasy VII.
Update 03/11/17: Finally. I'm back to writing.
I know, I'm such an asshole. I've been getting reviews and messages from you, and I just want you to know that I hear you. The lack of updating is unacceptable. I swear I'm working on all my fics between stints of free time. Currently, my FFVIII All of This Past fic is my priority.
Full disclosures are in my LiveJournal account (http(dot)//dr-staceums(dot)livejournal(dot)com) if you ever feel like reading about what I've been doing with my time.
Tidbits: I'm a quiet person by nature. I've got a Ph.D. (yes, from a legit university) in microbiology and I'm currently working as a lab rat. I'm just now starting to figure out that nine years of school and $85,000 of student debt doesn't mean shit. The husband and I are trying to have a kid, but that's not really working either. Thus, I'm jaded as hell. In the meantime, I love to write and this is my outlet. If I could do it all over again, I would have gone to med school...or started my own bakery like Maggie Gyllenhaal's character in Stranger Than Fiction.
Fic Synopsis (in order of newest publications):
Final Fantasy VII - Ne Me Mori Facias
Final Fantasy VIII - Hide Your Crazy
I'm not even a big Xu person, but her lack of character development in the game leaves much to the imagination. I blame altol and sissyHIYAH for their bad influences and their portrayal of Xu in their fics, because now that's how I see her - something like a cross between Lisbeth Salander (Girl With a Dragon Tattoo) and Lucille (Sin City). When I first heard the song "Mama's Broken Heart" on the radio, this exact fic popped into my mind. Dunno why.
Final Fantasy XII - Letters to Rabanastre
This idea was sitting in my head for a long time; focuses on Ashe and Basch - their past, present, and future. Penelo and Larsa dabble in some mischief. I chopped up my old XII novelization and kept the Basch/Ashe pieces, so some work might look familiar. Pretty much expounding on the game ending and that oh-so-palpable tension between Basch and Ashe.
Final Fantasy VIII - Come Back
Collective works for The Third War community on LiveJournal ( focusing on the fragile relationship between Seifer and Quistis. Thinking about a sequel for this one...
Final Fantasy VIII - The Outlaw Knight
Meh, just because. Inspiration struck after watching Tombstone and Broken Trail. (If you haven't seen those movies, by the way, watch 'em.) Just something fun to write :) However, Zell fans beware - I'm makin' him out to be the bad guy in this one... Seifer x Quistis
Final Fantasy VIII - All of This Past
Title based off the song by Sarah Bettens. Sequel to "Sound of a Trembling Heart." After five years of peace, nobody saw it coming. An unstoppable chain reaction had been set in motion years ago...and now the SeeDs must face what they've feared all along... Canon pairings, mainly Seifer x Quistis.
Note: If you were confused by the epilogue in "Sound of a Trembling Heart," it's there for a reason. Trust me. Listen to the song I posted in that chapter. I'm foreshadowing like hell here.
Terminator Salvation - The Rooster
Title based off the song by Alice in Chains, originally played in the movie but never expounded upon - leaving much to the imagination. A story that is scientifically plausible and much more believable than the piece o' crap movie (at least, I'd like to think). Not quite a series of drabbles, but not meant to go very deep, either. Blair x Marcus undertones.
Final Fantasy VIII - Sound of a Trembling Heart
Title inspired by the song "Suicide Note" by Johnette Napolitano. This fic is simply about Seifer and Quistis, their recollection of the Second Sorceress War, and overcoming their pain. I swiped a few tiny elements from The Departed and changed the situation just a little - Seifer wasn't a traitor, and his mission was the most difficult of all.
Final Fantasy X - The Story of Our Predecessors
A prequel to the actual game of FFX, following Auron and Braska before the big pilgrimage. Even though little hints were thrown at us in the game, we never did discover much about Auron's past. So, I'm putting together a story. Just why did Auron refuse to marry? And what caused the bitter grudge between him and Kinoc?
Batman and Catwoman - The Emerald Eye
Based on the animated series, but changed up just a bit with some OC's thrown in. Just some good old fashoned bat-cat banter, thievery, sexual innuendos, and romance...not to mention a huge conflict of interest.
Bleach - No Matter What: Fight or Die
Set during the Bount Arc with an OC as the 4th seat in the 11th squad. She knows something isn't right...the Bount invasion has brought back haunting memories, but of what? A little bit of Renji romance in the mix.
Final Fantasy XII - A Message From Our Sponsors: Dealing with Plagiarism
Plagiarism sucks. I hate it. Others hate it. So don't do it. Read the oneshot to see what I mean.
