Author has written 8 stories for Batman Begins/Dark Knight, Labyrinth, Inglourious Basterds, Phantom of the Opera, and Repo! The Genetic Opera.

Thought it would be fun to update this after nearly a decade. I don't post much anymore, but sometimes the spirit will move me.

I know You Can't Spell Slaughter Without Laughter is my most popular story, but I wanted to apologize for it. I wrote it when I was a kid, and reading it now makes me cringe -- I mean, I REALLY romanticized a horribly abusive relationship. I won't take it down, because I think most people who read it are self-aware and healthy enough to take it for what it is -- a piece of trash there for your fantasy fulfillment. But if you read it, just know -- if I knew then what I know now, I would've done things differently. And if you think you want a relationship like that, you don't. And if you're in one, get out.

ALRIGHT NO MORE SERIOUS STUFF.

Favorite Color: Black

Favorite Bands/Artists: Ghost, David Bowie, Jack White, Panic! At the Disco (always)

Favorite Movies: Labyrinth, Oldboy, House of 1000 Corpses, Repo! The Genetic Opera, Inglourious Basterds

Fandoms I read: I like OCs. I like villains and bad boys. Right now I'm into Harry Potter (Snape/OC), Funny Games (Paul/OC), and Labyrinth (Jareth/OC or usually Jareth/Sarah because that's literally all there is out there.

As a final thought, I started posting on this site when I was like 16. I loved writing but only really wrote fanfic. I guess the practice paid off though, because I'm almost 30 now and I'm making a living as a professional writer. Follow your passions, guys. Even if you think it's stupid or impossible.
