Author has written 6 stories for Yu-Gi-Oh, and Sherlock.

Hey all! My name is Xocotl, or "Xo" for short. I am a huge academic nerd forever, and will take over the world as the Queen of Nerds. (Kinda like the Queen of Hearts but with less make-up and more badass-ery.)

Anyway, I love to write, so stories are never discontinued in the middle of things. Sometimes the updates slow down, but that's okay. Cliffhangers always see the light of a pen again! Pairings are always reasonable. (As 'reasonable' as I ever get, which doesn't say much!)

I tend to pair one original story with one based off of something. They usually update together regardless of random stories that crop up in between. (Long term projects always appear in pairs.)

My stories like to get away from me, so if you see them, rein them in?

A title page for "The Enduring Vision" is in the works. Lots and lots of colored pencils are being used right now!

Things that confuse the heck out of me:

A fanfic with an Atem-Yami pairing. How does that even work if they're the same person?

Completed

Just Me: Oneshot

The Sway of Silence: Intense Oneshot

Stories in Progress

A New Science: Another Yu-Gi-Oh fanfic, this one follows Simone Elkeles's Perfect Chemistry. When the King of Games, Yugi Mutuo, is paired with the most dangerous kid in the school, Atem Metuere, in their senior science class, everyone knew sparks would fly. But are the two teens prepared for the rarest kind of the science? The science of love? In a world of racial differences, the two teens will be faced with many challenges in order to overcome the forces working against them.

Update Speed: Anywhere from two to four times a week.

Upcoming:

I have no idea! Possibly a sequel to "A New Science" but I haven't made up my mind. I'm thinking of other books to base stuff off of. :P
