Author has written 8 stories for Golden Sun, Dragon Ball Z, Valkyrie Profile, Kingdom Hearts, Blood+, Final Fantasy XIII, and Sekirei.

The chosen penname should be indication enough that I'm stuck in a rut. Not fun.


Should you have a idle moment or three to spare, here are some things you don't need to know about me:

I'm:

- a perfectionist, so don't expect fast updates

- old enough to be a uni postgraduate

- bored enough to add – or detract – morsels of meaningless info to/from this page on an infrequent basis

- primarily a reader of Harry Potter fanfic

- fond of (reading and writing) angsty dramas

- allergic to the over-prevalent yaoi; you'd never see me writing this (with one current exception, which isn't technically slash anyway)

- even more averse to high school AUs

- unhesitant to kill, maim, or otherwise destroy the unfortunate characters that feature in my stories


Current work:

Multi-chapter WIP:

The Sleeping Schedule (Sekirei, Minato/Kagari romance), 5/13 chapters published

An exploration of gender and sexual identity, the rules of attraction and a bond that transcends all these things.


Completed works:

One-shots:

Predatory (DBZ, Trunks/Bulma/Vegeta, Oedipus complex)

A not-so-short one-shot centered around the Oedipus complex. Abuse and affection on the individual parts of both parents raise a startlingly different child than is to be expected.

twilight lullaby (KH, Xion-centric, Roxas/Xion friendship)

Day 357, Xion's thoughts before she encounters Roxas at their usual spot atop the clock tower.

A Brother's Vow (Blood, Kai-centric, Saya/Kai siblinghood)

A short Kai-centric piece revolving around the speech he made at the conclusion of Episode 38, 'The Showdown Island.'

Misguidance (FFXIII, one-sided Hope/Lightning)

Alcohol-induced loss of inhibition and unsuspecting bystanders are not a good mix. Especially if said bystander happens to harbour feelings of a delicate nature.


Should you have any inquiries, feel free to PM me.
