Author has written 13 stories for Kingdom Hearts, Supernatural, and Blue Exorcist/青の祓魔師.
This uses the same lore as the one seen in Contrast.
I'm known as SorceressKyrsty most places, except one forum where I parade around with a Vanitas moniker. I am somewhere around the twenty mark, studying Game Design in University. I've been writing since I was eight, and I write both fanfiction and original stories both in novel format and in games.
I'm Australian, love a good mocha paired with some sadism and some angst. I'm a bit of a hermit- I dislike sunlight after a nasty sunburn at the age of eleven, and the memory is enough for me to lather up with sunscreen on any day I do go out and the sun's shining bright. As a result, I'm nigh-painfully pale. Cue vampire jests and mockery.
I write mostly angst. I'm not one for romance writing unless it's got some kind of angst or pain in it, though I rarely write death fics. I take no joy in actually killing someone, their suffering is the part that amuses me. I'm a writer and a game designer by trade, what do you expect? I will occasionally write action and smut, as well. I'm prone to playing with two major concepts; the conflict between morals, humanity and monstrosity, and the conflicts generated by a search for identity. These are my favourite themes to play with. As a result, I love vampires and werewolves, along with having a love/hate relationship with possession.
At current my dominant domain, writing-wise, is Kingdom Hearts, and generally things to do with a) Vanitas or B) Sora. The little shit's been running my head in circles of late and I'm not exactly sure why, but as a result he's always on the edge of my finger tips.
I like full yaoi/shounen-ai/etc. I will write this. I will imply this. My pairings: Cleon/Strifehart, Soriku, Vaniku...and a little of VanSo for a guilty pleasure. I personally call it Soritas, however. Squall and Cloud are my true OTP, were my first and my only. As far as I'm concerned they lean on their bedroom walls and pull the expressions that Ten and Rose have in that one scene in Doomsday. You know which one I'm talking about.
However, I repeat: I rarely ever set out with 'romance' in mind. I need a deeper plot besides the relationship.
I'm the type of gal who sets out to review anything she's enjoyed a lot with a good dose of criticism. I'm a bit old for this fanfiction thing, but it doesn't mean I'm not going to take my maturity along with me. If I 'fav and run', it's because I can't find the words I want to say, or I feel a review would be irrelevant. I come from a games forum where reviews have a minimum word count of around 300, and they need to be concise and provide feedback for both the player and the developer. I take that approach with everything I do; it helps with communicating with others in the long run.
What do I do besides write, despite the fact you didn't ask? I'm a freelance artist. I'll be drawing a good deal of my covers, even if they're not specifically for that story I would like to not resort to using screenshots or other people's art when I'm capable in my own right.
The second link is for anyone who has heard of/read LOTSL- It's a game with a different title now.
Aside from games, writing, and drawing, I have few hobbies. Like I said, I'm a bit of a hermit in a sense. I do cosplay a couple of times a year (I have Sora and Vanitas lined up somewhere once I have money for materials) and I have a small group of friends I see during school. My work isn't exactly the most social of pursuits when not in the actual work place, and given I work with people from overseas, it appears, more or less, that I'm just a computer geek. Semi-true.
I'm going to save this dear profile off with a few easy ones.
Likes: Rain, Mocha, Video Games, Quiet, Nighttime
Foods?: Osso Bucco, Lamb Shanks, Mochas, Vanilla/Mint-Choc Ice-Cream, Lemon, lime and bitters, cheesecake
Games?: KH series, FF8, Persona 4

Ok I got back into Ao no Exorcist. I do not and I will not be posting Ao no Exorcist fics to FF.net. I have no way of filtering out nOTPs and I get extremely uncomfortable with the fandom's dominate ship, so I don't even look at the section.
You can find my fics here, however.
My Active Stories:
THE KH SURVEY
(Please copy and paste this onto your profile and answer the questions! Spread the KH fever!)
SECTION ONE: The "Favorite" Questions
1. Your favorite KH guy?
Vanitas, closely accompanied by Riku and Sora. And Terra.
2. Your favorite KH girl?
Erm...either Aqua or Olette.
3. Your least favorite KH guy? Why?
4. Your least favorite KH girl? Why?
I'm not a big fan of most of them. I feel like they cause more problems than they solve, the exception being the above two. And...I never warmed up to Xion, sorry.
5. Favorite World? (Includes both KH1 and KH2)
Pride Lands and Hollow Bastion
6. Least Favorite World?
7. Favorite Weapon? (Includes both KH1 and KH2)
8. Least Favorite Weapon?
I think Saix's berserker things are awful.
9. Fav. Summon? (includes both KH1 and KH2)
10. Fav. Form? (aka. Sora's Forms)
ANTI-FORM (I actually go out of my way to trigger this thing.)
11. Favorite Pairing? (includes yaoi coupling) Why?
RiSo, Vaniku and VanSo. With a healthy serving of AkuRoku.
12. Least Fav. Pairing? (includes yaoi couples) Why?
VanKai. Stay the heck away from him.
13. Any cool crack pairings you've heard of? List 'em.
...I think VanSo's pretty crack.
14. Weirdest Pairing(s) You've Ever Heard Of?
Probably Sora/Leon for me, when they're in a proper relationship. I mean, I kind of get why, but in the essence of KH...please, no.
15. Any "Kh-pet-peeves" you have?
358/2 Days in general.
16. Fav. Partner in KH? (includes both KH1 and KH2)
Leon Leon Leon Leon Leon Leon Leon
SECTION TWO: Do you believe it, or not believe it?
17. Do you believe in the Xemnas/Saix theory!
...Yeah I don't know what this theory is.
18. Do you believe that Zexion is emo?
Not at all. I wish people would stop throwing around the 'emo' term like it's confetti.
19. Do you believe that Marluxia is gay?
He's probably the only one who isn't. You really can't convince me that Riku and Sora aren't gay after KH3D.
20. Do you believe that Kairi is the most annoying character in KH?
She's one of them.
SECTION THREE: Answer Yourself!
21. If Roxas had to choose either Namine or Olette, who would you root for? Why?
Ah...probably Olette, I like her personality more.
22. What's your theory on KH: Birth by Sleep?
It was a gigantic excuse to make an evil version of Sora.
23. Was Chain of Memories a waste of time?
No, but it's a pain in the bum.
24. If you had the choice of meeting ONE (and ONLY ONE!) KH character, who would it be?
Sora, so I can hit him.
25. Which KH character do you relate to the most? Why?
Hm...Terra, most likely. Shut up, I know that's bad. Yes I'm gullible as hell, leave me alone.
26. What's the most embarrassing moment that ever happened to you that had something to do with KH?
I have no idea.
27. Have you ever cosplayed as a KH character? If so, who? If not, who would you like to cosplay as?
Not yet, intend on cosplaying Vanitas and Sora.
28. The Funniest Moment in all of KH would be...?
29. The Hardest Enemy/Boss was...?
Well...in terms of regular story bosses, Ursula, Riku (Keyblade) and Xigbar come to mind. OH AND LEECHGRAVE, WHICH I HAVEN'T BEATEN BECAUSE IT'S A STUPID FIGHT.
30. What was a good edition in KH2 that made it oh-so-addictive?
The ramped-up combat speed.
SECTION FOUR: Decisions, Decisions...
Note: You MUST only choose one! "Both" or "Neither" in unacceptable!!
31. Hayner or Pence?
32. Zexion or Marluxia?
33. Riku or Roxas?
34. Roxas or Sora?
35. Axel or Demyx?
36. Kairi or Larxene?
37. AkuRoku or SoRiku?
38. Namixas or Namiku?
39. Zemyx or AkuRoku?
40. SoKai or SoRiku?
41. Sea Salt Ice Cream or Paopu Fruit?
42. Cloud or Leon?
43. CloTi of Clerith?
44. Simple and Clean or Passion?
SECTION FIVE: The Last Section!!
45. List all the KH character you've fallen for. (This includes Final Fantasy charcter as well)
Squall/Leon is and always will be my one and only. Then in order it was probably...Roxas, Riku, Terra, Vanitas, Sora. I didn't start to appreciate and analyse Sora until KH3D and Vanitas came along. I would do terrible things to the first four. Sora is more of an...interest than an attraction.
46. What crossovers would you like to see with KH?
I think KH should stay purely KH and Disney.
47. Does anyone in KH look like another character? List 'em all!
Sora/Chris (Sonic X)
And...I can't think of any other ones that aren't connected to Square OR my own characters. Besides I only have one. Who looks like Terra.
48. Which new KH game can you abosolutely NOT wait for?
Kingdom Vanitas 3. What? Oh and 2.5. I am dying for 2.5.
49. Do you like KH1 or KH2 better? Why?
Kingdom Hearts 2, despite KH1 always being special to me. The lack of shoddy camera controls was a big plus.
50. What makes Kingdom Hearts one of the best games ever?
Cloud and Leon in the same scene omg
51. List your collection of Kingdom Hearts junk and merchandise, if any.
Hm...I own KH1, 2, BBS and 3D, with guides for the first two and the last one. I have Sora's necklace and Roxas's pendant, and a figurine of Sora in Valor form. The moment a Vanitas figurine gets released...oh baby.
52. Have you ever felt that you were destined to be with a Kingdom Hearts character? If so who?
53. AxelxKairi or AxelxRoxas?
54. Which path is your favorite? Light, Darkness, Dawn, or Twilight.
I want to see the Twilight path covered, but I do prefer not-pure Light characters. I think removing the dark aspects of a character makes them boring and plot irrelevant (I'M LOOKING AT YOU, KAIRI).
55. Do you support the 'Axel is gay for Roxas' theory?
A lil bit.
56. Your favorite Organization Xlll member(s)?
Xigbar, Axel, Roxas, Demyx
57. Are you pro-Kairi or anti-Kairi?
She can gtfo as far as I'm concerned. All she causes is problems, problems and more problems. HEY LOOK AT ME, I'M GETTING KIDNAPPED AGAIN
--this would not be as much of a problem if she was actually given decent character development but AS SHE STANDS she spent a year fully aware at least one of her friends was off, missing, and there were other worlds, and dangers, and while she did eventually leave, she was content to wait to begin with. She's presented as a token female, when in the other two trios, the girls were able to hold their own, especially Aqua. Why Kairi has been left on this back burner so badly I don't know, but until it's lifted, until I can appreciate her as a whole character, and she isn't just a bargaining chip, I won't like her.
Additionally, I am a sucker for inner struggle plots. Kairi cannot experience those. The Princess of Heart concept is actually really frustrating.
58. Have you played all the Kingdom Hearts game?
59. Have you read the manga?
Yup! KH1 and what there is of KH2.
60. Do you believe Sora has ADD?
That and a slew of other mental illnesses, but you have to be insane to be a hero these days.
61. Japanese or English?
62. Pro-Naminé or Anti-Naminé?
63. Demyx = Annoying or funny?
Aw yis, funny. Though I want to strangle him a bit for giving me hell in Hollow Bastion.
64. Do you believe Demyx's Somebody was from Atlantica (Splash Island)?
Doubt it, we'll probably be seeing more 'original' worlds in KH3 if they cover Organization origin points. I don't think any of them are from Disney worlds.
65. Zexion = Sexy beast or Emo?
...I guess sexy beast?
66. Which character would be the best crossdresser?
Roxas or Ven, Wall Street style!
67. Axel = Gay or straight?
Might be straight. Only ones I'm 100% on being flaming homos are Riku and Sora.
68. Which character would be best OOC? Who and how?
Lolol Sora *gives him Vanitas's personality and watches him wreck havoc*
69. Do you like Kingdom Hearts fanfics?
Yes, check my favs.
70 Do you write Kingdom Hearts fanfics?
It's all I write at the moment.
71. Do you like lemons?
72. Do your parents know any Kingdom Hearts characters?
They've probably heard me rant and rave about them at some stage.
73. Have you watched the Kingdom Hearts Crazy Files?
74. Have you seen the 'Axel Falls For Kairi' series?
75. Have you ever got someone else hooked on Kingdom Hearts?
76. Have you ever been drawing the characters in school and have someone randomly say "WOAH! you like Kingdom Hearts too!?"
Why do you instantly assume I'm at school?
77. Have you ever been in class drawing any of the characters and the teacher comes up to you and says "WTF is this?! O.o;"
No, because I'm not at your high school shenanigan stage!
78. Has Kingdom Hearts affected your school life and grades?
It might if I don't go and work on my Unity project within the next half hour.
79. Are you broke thanks to Kingdom Hearts?
I would be if I hadn't asked for the KH1.5 preorder for my birthday.
80. Do you want to eat sea-salt ice cream?
Yes! I've developed a taste for salty/sweet combos! They're awesome!
81. Would you ever join Organization XIII?
Skytryx to the rescue!
82. Do you draw Kingdom Hearts fanart? If so, count how many there is in your gallery.

A few of them.
