Welcome!

I have been writing fanfic since 2002 and have gone through many different fandoms, mostly in the sci-fi/fantasy genre.

Most of my fic are also archived on my AO3 account (my oldest stories are not, they are only available here), where you can also find all stories featuring explicit content, as well as the original versions of my stories which featured explicit content that had been edited out to comply with FFN standards.

I love comments in any size, shape or form and I love chatting with readers, so it means the world to me if you take the time to write me a comment if you enjoy reading any of my stories! Please remember that I can only reply to comments if you're logged in (email address typed into comments don't show up).

UPDATE March 2009:

I'm very sorry but I will not be continuing with my Harry Potter 'Path' trilogy. The last installment in the trilogy (Path of Twinkling Dusk) will be left incomplete. I apologize to all those readers who enjoyed the story.
