Author has written 6 stories for Final Fantasy XII, Death Note, and Hetalia - Axis Powers.

WHEE DISCO UN~ Because I didn't want to infringe anyone's copyrights.

Maelstromsparrow is my name and I don't want to change it yet, even though everything else about this account is getting a facelift. Maelstrom derives from Ashe (of Final Fantasy XII) and her level-three Quickening (and it's cool to spell), and "Sparrow" comes from my actual name, which is another bird. If you don't want to type out the whole ugly conglomeration of words "sparrow" works just fine.


I am Canadian.

I wear a tie to school every day.

...I actually like wearing ties to school every day

I write more than I do anything else

I am so lame that I live within walking distance of no movie theatres, no shopping malls, one library, and at least twelve different retirement communities.

I (try to) speak French

It is safe to bet that I want chocolate at the very moment you are reading this.

I think my English teacher might be either my best friend or my real mother.

Oh yeah, and I'm female.



I have developed a completely inescapable square of preferred countries: America, Russia, England and Canada. It is horrific that I can write them and hardly anyone else *cries* I do love Germany, Prussia, Austria, Hungary, Spain, Lithuania, Poland, Japan, Greece, and pretty much every pairing you can dig out of that random messy pile.


Also known to play/write for Final Fantasy on occasion. Familiar with, thought not inclined to write for Death Note, Code Geass, Ouran High School Host Club and Higurashi (the first three because I don't want to bother their stories and the last because it's FREAKING CREEPY AND DOESN'T MAKE SENSE AND FLDAJFKDLASGJADSGLABABBLE)

~~~~~Poetry that will cheer you up and inspire you, I promise:

When I have fears, John Keats

The Call, Rupert Brooke


Well, that's what you're here for, isn't it? If you want to read my stuff, go ahead and click below! It speaks for itself, I think :3 Cheers and Ciao!
