Author has written 15 stories for Kingdom Hearts, Death Note, and Switch/スイッチ.

(formerly parkingLOTinTHEidiot, Esperance)

Updates:

August 2013 - In lieu of posting one story for Akuroku day this year, I am participating in tumblr user seasaltkisses' AkuRoku Month Anthology. My entry will eventually be posted here, along with several other drabbles I have written over the course of the month.

In the meantime, I'd be grateful if you'd check out two fanmixes I've made in honor of 8/13:

You Made a Slow Disaster Out of Me (Axel's Mix)

I Was the Last Thing On Your Mind (Roxas' Mix)

May 2013 - Several of my older stories of lesser quality have been deleted. If you were particularly fond of any of them, PM me and I'll send a copy your way.


The fanfiction love affair started during the author's infamous Phantom of the Opera phase of '05 and is STILL a better love story than Twilight.

More likely to be reading on AO3 as of 2012. Writing schedule is always on hiatus even when not on hiatus. Reviews and PMs will usually be responded to.

Other accounts: mrgoodnews on tumblr. jackedUPonDRpepper on deviantART (now defunct). esper_kay on LJ (barely used).
