Author has written 1 story for Mega Man.

Call me Midnight. No really: that's the alias that I prefer, and it sounds less clunky. Granted, this is the same ID that I posted anonymous reviews for some three years ago (and now), but I still prefer Midnight anyway.

Feel free to browse around my few works--they're somewhat scattered throughout the fandoms I've been in. That is, when I get around to actually posting them.

Inspiration is extremely fleeting--as any good thinker or writer should know. Therefore, many of the works that I have below are vignettes or stand-alone works--it is unlikely that I will write a multi-chaptered story. Still, we'll see how inspiration strikes.

Also, if you have any questions about my reviews or things like that, feel free to PM me. Or, if you prefer, talk to me in person: I hang out at #EXEFiction on irc.synirc.net. Yes, the channel's name implies Rockman.exe fandom, but the people there are rather nice and also enjoy other things too--come on down! We don't bite. hard. Of course, if you want, conversing by e-mail is fine as well--I'm usually in the mood to talk about things, no matter how trivial.

One other thing I may note--I have a tendency to be...somewhat blunt in my reviews. People have likened my style to that of Simon Cowell or Gordon Ramsay (without the profuse profanities, of course.) Please do not see it as a personal attack or anything like that--I always want to make claims that I can back up in the text. A personal attack would be far more acerbic, and would pretty much outright deride a story without any sort of backup--I do not condone such behavior on my part. I review for the sole purpose that I want to see people do better, and the only way to do that is to use constructive criticism. If you still think that what I am doing was too pointed, please feel free to contact me.
