Author has written 11 stories for James Bond, X-Files, Godzilla, Super 8, Prometheus, 2012, Django Unchained, Godfather, and Mad Men.

In real life, I'm a doctoral candidate in Library and Information Science pondering how recommendation systems could be improved, with a specific focus on music. On here, I'm the author of 12 stories. Many of them relate to The X-Files, but I've written a few in other "universes" (including a few that converge with X-Files). One thing I've noticed is that none of my stories take place in the present. They're mainly from other decades, from the 1900s through 2090s, which makes for an interesting challenge in terms of period setting. So, if you like stories set in certain times of history, they are as follows:

Of the Coming of Django (Django Unchained): 1900

Mad CSM (X-Files/Mad Men): 1960

The Golden Reel (James Bond / Godfather): 1963-1964

L'histoire d'un homme en noir / The Story of a Man in Black (X-Files): 1968-1970, 1973, 1976, 1979, 1989-1995

Der Ungeheuer des Sternen / The Monster from the Stars (Super 8): 1979

Eines Atems, Ein'ger Bund / Bound Together in One Breath (X-Files): 1994

Das Geheimnis der Liebe / The Mystery of Love (X-Files): 1995, 2023

The Secret Files: Giant Monster Attack! (X-Files / Gojira [not "Zilla"]): 1998

Falling Angel (Prometheus): 2001, other dates TBD

So Said Peter Weyland (Prometheus): 2023

At a Crossroads (X-Files): 2031

Head Games (Prometheus): 2090, 2093-2094

I endeavour to respect canon as much as possible, so my stories act more as apocrypha than anything else. This, of course, poses a special challenge for crossovers. My pace tends to be a bit Kubrickian as well, so your patience for updates is kindly appreciated. As for pairings... some are straight, some are gay, some are bi. With respect to sexual diversity as it is in the real world, I am not a "specialist" in one kind or another. I also don't do 'shipper stories (This means you, X-Files fans... I like to maintain the sexual tension of earlier seasons, which is more rewarding.)

As for hobbies... I listen quite a bit to opera and classical music (the colossal stuff... German Romanticism most especially). Such pieces have provided the bedrock inspiration behind some of my stories. My avatar is Edward Steichen's expressionistic photograph of composer Richard Strauss, around the time he wrote my favourite opera "Salome" (which cameos in quite a few of my stories). Please do not be put off by my self-indulgence, and find an appropriate performance on YouTube to enhance the reading experience.
