A Little About Me
Thanks for taking the time to read my profile : ) New Yorker here! I enjoy writing when I have the time. I write all types of fiction, not all I post. If you are reading my work, or just starting out, please regard my disclaimers seriously as many of my characters are adults and will conduct adult activity. (Oh, and watch out for my old 2008 stuff, eek!)

09-05-16 - Fullmetal Alchemist: Say What
[Completed One-Shot. Rated K. Humor/Drama] Cracks me up.
When Roy hears Edward use an expression he’s unfamiliar with, he can’t get it out from under his skin until he understands it. Short, simple, cute. One Shot.
11/21/16 - Fullmetal Alchemist: Board of Squares
[Completed Multi-Chapter Story. Rated T. Hurt/Comfort/Angst] This story has some great scenes / great older Ed.
Ed has finally restored Alphonse to his flesh body, but as Alphonse adjusts, Ed devotion is misunderstood, turning something beautiful into something disgusting. Desperate, Ed must turn to the colonel-and-team for help at his darkest hour, or risk losing everything. When the chips are down, you play the only way you can, with blood.
- Fullmetal Alchemist: The Gender of A Woman
[Completed One-shot. Rated K. Humor/Drama] Cute.
Sometimes one little word can mean a lot.
- Fullmetal Alchemist: Pay A Person With Kindness
[Completed One-shot. Rated K. Humor/Drama]. The summary says it all.
An inappropriate gift, an unexpected response.
- Fullmetal Alchemist: A Lesser IQ
[Completed One-shot. Rated K. Humor/Drama/Friendship]
Ed’s home sick, and Roy picks up celery.
- Ouran High School Host Club: Castling Kings
[Completed Multi-Chapter Story. Rated T. Action/Hurt/Comfort]
There is truth inside Hikaru and Kaoru’s brotherly love act, but nothing incestuous. When a few students can’t get this through their heads, the brothers find themselves at the end of a very dangerous equation.
- Ouran High School Host Club: Hero Proxy
[Completed Multi-Chapter Story. Rated T. Hurt Comfort/Drama]
Acting identical comes flawlessly to the twins, but when Kaoru becomes sick with an embarrassing something Hikaru doesn’t have, the twins are flustered. With Kaoru uncomfortable, Hikaru stands in for his brother, and ends up putting himself in grave danger with one innocently stupid mistake.
- Ouran High School Host Club: We Can Not Tolerate Intolerance
[In-Progress Multi-Chapter Story. Rated MA. Suspense/Hurt Comfort.] This story is amazing
One day mom says something that changes the way we think about the rights granted to all humans, and Kaoru finds himself with passionate views in support of gay rights, while Hikaru can’t get past the word gay. Determined to be a voice against intolerance, Kaoru is attacked for speaking up, and the brothers begin a strong but shaky path forward, struggling to navigate in new terrain without sacrificing what is important to them. A serious topic woven deeply into the playful and humorous world of the Host Club. Just because we make light of something, doesn’t mean we don’t realize how significant it is. We cannot tolerate intolerance, because the only deafening silence, is the silence of the good.
- Ouran High School Host Club: Grasp At Straws
[In-Progress Multi-Chapter Story. Rated MA. Horror/Angst] You will sweat.
A joy ride turns into an accident, but there is something wrong with the only responder on sight to the crash. Standing alongside a shattered car, with the club groggy and recovering from the flip of the Ferrari, Kyoya gets that sinking feeling in the pit of his stomach telling him there is something gravely wrong. This story will scare you.
- Fullmetal Alchemist: Arsenal of Jewels
[In-Progress. Multi-Chapter Story. Rated R. Adventure/Friendship]
One of the hardest FMA stories I’ve ever written, and for all the reasons you’d never guess. This story's focus will be Human Acceptance: what makes you part of a group, what makes you worthy of one, and sometimes, what has to happen for you to realize it’s okay to be accepted. (This will have some hella-crazy action scenes, if I can pull it off).
- Fullmetal Alchemist: [Community Manager] "State Certified"
Elite, fully completed works of mastery. Accepting all story types as long as they are high quality.
Why did I make this? We need more communities meant to archive quality stories for quality readers. Can I do this alone? Absolutely not. I think it's unrealistic to suggest it can be a one person job, and equally as unrealistic to suggest one person should be judge and jury.
Please recommend quality reads to me, and help dedicated writers out there unbury their high quality pieces from the pages upon pages. In order for stories to be admitted, they have to be recommended, and FYI, I will only add my own if objective parties refer them.
Want to join a community? Access it through the website, and look for the blue font: "Follow," that appears near the community image. Click that, and you've joined!
I apologize, but due to my hectic schedule I am not currently accepting Apprentice Applications.
However, when I am, this activity focuses to add more constructive voices out there to the writing process. I am by no means an author, but I’ve had my own run ins with rude, condescending and cruel people, as I’ve been learning and carving out my style. Its so disappointing, so if you’re in need of critique or constructive comments, and you feel that I might be a good source for you, ask and you shall receive. I respond to Appentice Applications (PMs in which you let me know what you’re looking for), with my own, “Cup of Tea,” a relaxing collection of advise and analysis aimed at what you want to discuss using thoughts and tips that have helped me. Writing can frustrate and stress us, a "Cup of Tea," is meant to sooth you.
My Penname Standards:
When you read my work you will receive:
1. Only completed stories. I do not post if I am not done, period.
2. Accurate story/rating disclosure.
3. A disclosed posting schedule - I do this out of respect for your time.
4. No wasted time adding disclaimers to every story - within my profile is my disclaimer.
5. My continued strive to do my best. For all the errors you have seen, and will see, I apologize. Not a day goes by I don't learn something new.
I do not own, or claim to own, any of the copyrighted information borrowed for the purpose of creating fanfiction. However, I own my own characters and generated content, and will avidly fight for them. My stories also include adult themes, as many of my characters are adults, and I require respect to rating disclaimers posted on each. If you read something you don’t like, or were unprepared for, I will take no fault as you were previously warned. Please keep an open mind in reading, and in life, and realize that people are at different walks of life and have the right to their own happiness and free will.
The Plight For Reviews – How We Seek Them Like A Drug:
If you are reading my profile, I must assume you have read something I have written. Perhaps you loved it, perhaps you hated it - regardless I would like your valuable thoughts. Please leave a review.
Please always take the time to comment on anything you read to anyone who wrote it. If you also write, you understand the drug addicted anxiety and excitement reviews bring. As a humble writer I smear myself onto the pages I write and offer them up to your criticism and judgment. If you can, please recognize the hours that go into crafting a story with a few moments of your time and comment. Review as you go - every chapter - as a courtesy.
My favorite Books:
Backroads by O’Dell and A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Eggers. Read them, they’re amazing. Amy Tan and Dan Brown also have real talent.

07-04-16 – To all of you who thought I fell off the face of the Earth, I’m happy to be back. I changed jobs, changed states, and have a wealth of activity going on in my life. It’s made finding time for writing hard, and of course, I only post fanfiction here, so the time I spend on other pieces is invisible. But I’m happy to be back, and as always, I honor my commitments, so Board of Squares is finally coming.
04-12-2014 - "The Big Bang Theory," is now fully uploaded! Woo! Working on, "Arsenal of Jewels," preparing for my trip to Japan, and organizing my thoughts for the FMA community, "State Certified," I want to launch. We need more solid active communities out there, and we have such awesome people on here, and it's wonder there aren't more.
11-25-2013 - Epilogue of, "Foolish For You," just posted. (Still tired from my trip to Ireland and Scotland). Why is it so sad to have stories end when you work so hard to post them, and are so eager to have people read their endings? Sneak Peek of: "The Big Bang Theory" up 12/20/13, fingers crossed my readers like. When did I become a slave to you guys? lol
06-06-2013 - Foolish is now up! Fingers crossed this will go well.
05-10-2013 - Posting the last chapter of, "The Silent Heart," Epilogue up next week. So Sad. Thanks to everyone who voted for the next story. I am excited and eager to post some yummy RoyxEd goodness...but not without a high rating that is. : )
03-28-2013 - Working hard on, "Board of Squares," it's crazy how when you're working on a fic you can't judge your own quality until you step back. I am hoping this will be a good solid story.
02-01-2013 - One month into, "The Silent Heart." I love this story, and I am so glad others are enjoying it as well. I am trying to get my act together to work on others so there is something fun posting this spring and summer of 2013. I managed lots of editing while in Egypt and Israel.
11-02-2012 - Just finished posting, "Another Run of Events." It feels so sad! but I am truly anxious to post my baby, "The Silent Heart," to kick off the new year.
08-12-2012 – Wow that holiday was longer than I thought, but I am back! While finishing my degrees I completed several stories I wanted, and actually rewrote several I really like and have posted, so they improved from 2006 versions to 2012 (nice!). I plan to return with my new version of “Another Run of Events” (FMA), and a humorous OHSHC One-shot entitled, “Without a Rubber,” to say hello to the OHSHC fans I’ve never met. To all, I am excited to be back!!
02-28-2010 - I am taking a permanent holiday for the next few years until I finish my graduate degree! I will continue to write but not until graduation, upon which there will be an entire mess of FMA and OHSHC stories posted. I apologize to everyone if you've like what I've written and want more...it will come, I promise. To everyone who has been so supportive and willing to wait for me - THANK YOU! To everyone writing while in college - YOU CAN DO IT!!
