Author has written 8 stories for Cartoon X-overs, My Life as a Teenage Robot, Storm Hawks, Discworld, Great Expectations, Ruby Gloom, and Phantom of the Opera.

I have a... special mind. Crackpot theories abound, as is to be expected from someone only tangentially linked to reality.

Most of my stories are in the humour section; humour of the whimsical, satirical and sarcastic kind - heavy on wordplay, light on jokes about poo.

I enjoy crack-pairings, but always try to back them up with some form of logic. However, any romantic plots/sub-plots will be kept pretty clean, ie: no porno, and I'll try to steer clear of overly-flowery descriptions of 'heaving bosoms' and the like.

In fact, I'm terrible for pairing things, not always in a romantic way: expect a lot of comic-duos and 'witty' {or painful attempts at} repartee between characters.

Most of my stuff is character focused, and I like picking members of the supporting cast, that didn't get too much focus in the original work.
Or picking new angles {such as the evil overlord out grocery shopping}.

None of these stories are very related to each other, so feel free to pick and choose.

Enjoy!
