Author has written 50 stories for Pretender, Invisible Man, Quantum Leap, Dragon Knights, and Cowboy Bebop.

Hello, all. I'm Disgruntled Peony, formerly known as liz_Z. I'm twenty-four (bit of an age jump from the last time I updated this... it used to say I was twenty). I still love writing, although I don't have as much time for it as I'd like. I'm a big fan of the TV shows 'The Invisible Man' and 'The Pretender', both of which are long-cancelled. I'm also a fan of 'Cowboy Bebop', and a former fan of the manga 'Dragon Knights' (it got too convoluted around volume 15 for me to keep my interest up).

I've grown more cynical over the years, and most of the fanfics on display here are hardly a showcase for my current writing ability. Still, I see no reason to take them down. They were very important to me when I wrote them, and I'm still proud of a few of them for varying reasons. Who knows? In time, I might even add a few new stories to the pot.
