Current Projects In progress:
Final Fantasy VII:
1) Advent Children: Secrets of a Locked Heart
"She is grateful that he does not suffer a similar fate of the puppet that she has become- while the General enjoys every moment of it." A retelling of Advent Children, with Tifa Lockhart being the one who contracts the disease of Geostigma instead of Cloud.
A Tifa centric story that retells some components of the movie, only with my own twists and turns. ON HIATUS until I complete Sky Song.
1) Sky Song
Inara's got her fair share of secrets, but a certain one she's kept hidden from Mal for years, might just cause the Captain and his crew more grief than expected. M/I, S/K, post BDM.
Probably my biggest project in this fandom. It's my first attempt at writing something that encompasses all the characters (still alive) and a continuing action like plot not too different from the series. This is the story I'll be putting most of my time and energy into. The story was started prior to the release of the LotW comics and takes place years after the BDM, thus forcing me to take some liberties with canon. I will be doing my best to update at least once a month, if not, more.
I've recently created a nifty little playlist for this fanfiction novel, in case anyone would like to see where I get most of my muse. If you'd like to give it a listen, I will provide the link here.
If that doesn't work, I'll also provide an actual link. :)
2) But She Can't Cook
Mal knows Inara is a woman of many talents, but he's hellbent on finding something the companion can't do. A series of snippets where Mal thinks on Inara's endless skill set, and her single flaw. Mal x Inara pure, shameless fluff.
Pairings: Mal x Inara, hints of Simon x Kaylee & Wash x Zoe
Really just a series of unrelated one-shots based on Mal's feelings for Inara, and his struggle to cope with how 'flawless' she pretends to be. She's always just a bit out of his reach, and this is his way of grounding her.
3) Anything But Love
Slight AU. when Inara moves to the post-war torn planet Shadow in an effort to put back the pieces of her failing marriage, the last thing she expected was to become so entangled with the town's most notorious rancher, and the repercussions that would come with it. Eventual Mal x Inara.
Inspired by wanting to write a Mal origin story, I wanted to write a sweet, tragic romance that takes place in a slightly tweaked universe. After a massive reposting, and much debate, I decided to give the story an M rating. I really didn't want to, mainly because it would leave a portion of readers out, but also because much of the content isn't entirely unfamiliar to the Firefly 'verse. However, I do want it to be darker than usual, and it's built around a very hostile world that could only be depicted with some touchy content (such as implied rape, gore, and violence). Not to mention, there will be smutty lemons abound, and this way, I am able to write freely without potentially offending or scarring any one reader. Still, at the end of the day, it is a love story, only slightly unconventional. Because how else do you keep it all fresh? Do give it a chance, seeing as how it will become my next focal story once Sky Song is completed, and is therefore, something I'm going to work hard on.
Future Projects: Ideas and muses I've brainstormed and would eventually like to write out and post.
Final Fantasy VII:
Everyone knows how horrible Cloud is around the women in his life, particularly his beautiful childhood friend, Tifa Lockhart. So, feeling obligated as the blonde's best friend, Zack takes it upon himself to help the poor kid out, from the Lifestream. How hard could matchmaking possibly be when you're a spirit possessing the body of the boy in question?
Pairings: Cloud x Tifa x Zack
2) Lost & Found
When Cloud's negative outlook on life finally results in losing the family he's built, he will stop at nothing to win them back. But, how do you get the woman of your dreams to fall in love with you again from scratch? By being as annoyingly persistent as possible, that's how.
Pairings: Cloud x Tifa x Reno
3) Are We Lost?
It makes me happy to say I've decided to write up a sequel to AWCMH. Much faster paced, more action, and a lot of answers to questions that still remained after the ending, specifically pertaining to Tifa's origins.
Sequel to AWCMH. Tifa Lockhart is about to learn that she wasn't the only experiment gone wrong at the hands of Professor Hojo, and that she may be a part of something a lot bigger than she ever could have imagined...
Pairings: Cloud x Tifa x Zack, Zack x Aerith, subtle Tseng x Aerith
1) Snow Castle
She was never one for planet side romance. Then again, she was never one to love a brown coat pirate, either.
Pairings: Mal x Inara, Kaylee x Simon
She doesn't speak about her past because she'd rather forget it. Inara centric piece.
Pairings: hints of Mal x Inara
3) Company of Men
The conversation that took place between the companion and the Councillor during "War Stories", when Inara requests help to save Mal's life. Mal x Inara one-sided.
Pairings: Mal x Inara, one-sided
4) The (Un)Popular Theory
Simon and Kaylee confront one of their biggest foes: jealousy. Simon x Kaylee, slight Mal x Inara. Pre BDM.
Pairings: Simon x Kaylee, hinted Mal x Inara
5) Poison & Wine
Mal manages to snag a fairly easy job on a ranch for his crew during their supposed vacation time, and, to everyone's surprise, Inara decides to come along for the ride. What could this mean for our strong headed captain? But more importantly, why's Inara so afraid of pigs? Definitely Mal/Inara centric, post BDM.
Pairings: Mal x Inara, hints of Kaylee x Simon
He wants to take her dancin'. Mal x Inara fluff.
Pairings: Mal x Inara
7) Pictures & Words
Exactly how *DID* Mal come to acquire the video capture of Inara as she packed her things? Mal x Inara one-sided, pre BDM.
Pairings: Mal x Inara, one-sided, Mal & Kaylee friendship
Inspired by the new comic series. Inara's got a job for the crew. Post BDM.
Pairings: hints of Mal x Inara, Simon x Kaylee
9) Bunk Buddies
Events that occur leave Inara a little worse for wear. Mal decides to help in the best way he can.
Pairings: Mal xInara, rated for suggestive themes.
He can say all of the wrong things. But sometimes, he can say all of the right ones, too. Simon x Kaylee smut. Companion piece to 'Aphrodisiac'.
11) A Heartbreak
He loved her - of that much, he was always sure...
Pairings: Mal x Inara
12) Birthday Kisses
How could she stop when his mouth tasted like a dangerous combination of Kaylee's birthday cake and Londinium's finest bottle of champagne? Sky Song smut excerpt/standalone - the night on the bridge.
Pairings: Mal x Inara
13) Taking Flight
An alternate take on the crew's meeting Inara Serra. Mal takes on a simple job. All goes smooth. But all it takes are a pair of pretty brown eyes, and things crumble anyways. Mal x Inara hints.
14) Uncharted Territory
A series of events has the crew stranded and separated on an unknown planet. Mal/Inara, Wash/Zoe, Simon/Kaylee, Jayne&River bonding.
15) My Kind Of Stupid
Where Wash talks, and Mal listens. Wash/Zoe, Mal/Inara.
16) Dirty Girl Books
Mal discovers one of Inara's dirty little secrets in the most unconventional of ways. Implied Mal/Inara for sure.
17) When the Money's Not Good Enough
"What happens when it is?" Well, that'll be an interesting day... The offer the lawman makes Jayne during the episode Serenity, and why he doesn't take it. Gen one-shot.
The crew find themselves struggling with a moral dilemma when they pick up a strange passenger from a planet ravaged by reavers. Gen short story, canon pairings, post BDM.
19) Bound to the Blue
They were all running from something, that much had always been true. But when Inara's past rears it's ugly head, the crew of Serenity come to dreadfully learn that it hasn't only come for her...Canon pairings. Post BDM.
1) The Wolves of Night
TP. For every princess, there's always been a hero. But their love is not always recurring. Zelda explores her unrequited feelings for a certain unnamed hero of legend. Link x Zelda, one-sided.
1) Pixie Dust
Sirens were a tricksy folk. And commandos, now they just loved their turrets. Still, itches needed scratching and who was he to complain? Shameless Maya x Axton smut.
IN THE WORKS: Stories, one-shots, and drabbles I've begun working on, and are expected to be posted soon.
TAKING FLIGHT (FIREFLY)
I adore the show, and would not change a thing about it, but it is fun to speculate alternate scenarios for the beloved crew of Serenity. So, I wanted to write a short story about how Inara joins the ragtag bunch, with Mal acting out his role of knight in shining armor.
DIRTY GIRL BOOKS (FIREFLY)
This one-shot is pure humor, and just an excuse to get Mal uncomfortable around the women of Serenity who aren't happily married.
BIRTHDAY KISSES (FIREFLY)
A tie-in with my on-going story, SKY SONG, but can be read separately, too. I haven't written a good smut scene in a while, and seeing as how Sky Song is rated T, I can't delve into my usual M rated content. So, this is just a one-shot lemon depicting one of many instances Mal doesn't think on potential consequences, and it just happens to take place on Kaylee's birthday aboard the ship.
BOUND TO THE BLUE
If you've read any of my works, then you must know by now how much I enjoy writing Inara's character (despite the lack of love she tends to receive in this fandom). Many call her character boring or trivial (due to her smaller role throughout the short lived show/movie), or simply a love interest, and maybe she was just a plot device for Mal's character development in the end. However, I like to think differently, and seeing as how Joss never ended up killing her off (and now never will), I can happily write this piece of fanfiction. I like to think her character, being so shrouded in mystery, can be outstandingly fun to write due to the incompleteness of her story arc, and to me, that makes Inara a very enjoyable character to flesh out in different directions (so long as it's done right, and tastefully).
So this pet project is actually a focus on Inara Serra; her backstory, how and why she became a companion, and yes, even her link to an inevitable demise. All of it, and then some. This will be a long running story (as long, or longer than Sky Song), and will also tap into many other concepts that were left unexplored in the show, movie, and comics. All this essentially means explosions, action, gun fights, everyone being a badass, space battles, kidnappings, torture, fist fights in Alliance friendly bars, two by two hands of blue, and lots more I won't list off to spare you of any more spoilers. ;) If you're thinking I'm going to prove that Inara can be way more than just a boring, trivial, love interest of a character, then you'd be absolutely right. :)
One last note on this story; although I do typically follow canon in the Firefly universe, I have been contemplating ignoring the Wash and Book are dead thing just for the sake of including them in this one. I'll most likely have a poll up, and readers can certainly vote or even PM me their thoughts on this. :)
