Hi everyone! Welcome to my bio page!

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 ffnet standards.

"For a writer, a pen is their soul and the paper upon which they write is the undiscovered territory of other people's souls." - Anonymous

"It takes courage to look inside yourself, and even more courage to write it down for other people to see." - Benjamin Sisko, ST:DS9

UPDATE March 2009:

I'm very sorry to say that 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 folks who enjoyed the story.
