Author has written 5 stories for Gunslinger Girl.

Sept. 22, 2016 UPDATE: Writing again! Stay tuned! Here's a new preview to whet your appetites!


The retreat for Triela was a blur. Snatches of pain-filled lucidity, but constant fear. Overwhelming fear. Run, her body urged her, run from that man. Run from The Boar. Forget that your lungs are on fire. Forget that your heart is exploding with every step. If he catches you, you will have to fight tooth and nail to survive and you will lose. He will kill you. You will lose.

She remembered fighting briefly from inside the building in which she and Hilshire had been trapped. They had found two pistols in the room, a magazine-and-a-half between them, and fired at the group of hostiles still concentrated in the middle of the compound. Two or three fell, but the rest mobilized quickly and suppressed the Fratello with automatic fire. Hilshire threw a chair through the back window and they jumped out into the snow. Without a second thought, they climbed the fence and crawled under the barbed wire. Triela’s pants caught and she fell, tearing the flesh on her thigh.

Then they were on the other side of the compound, opposite their previous entry point, running through the tree line on the side of the road with assault rifle rounds tearing bark all around them. They slowed only to take feeble shots at the hostiles behind them, but they were not being pursued. The BMP-3 rolled into the compound through the flaming remains of the truck convoy and settled in the opening. Those of Solomin’s men who stayed to fight were killed by its machine gun. Others climbed the fences as the Fratello had. Of these, a handful found themselves tangled in the wire. One, Triela glimpsed briefly, had gotten it wrapped around his neck and was clawing at the tears opening in his throat.

More running. When the compound had been cleared of resistance, the enemy’s fighting vehicle crashed through the gate on the other side of the compound, stopped, and fired its main gun once in the general direction of the retreating forces. A clump of trees near Triela exploded, throwing her to the ground and deafening her. Wood and metal shrapnel cut her face and she blacked out.

Hello, and thanks for viewing my profile. I hope since you're reading this right now it means that you've read something I've written and have enjoyed it. If not, then that's alright, too, I guess.

There's not much to say about me, really. I'm just a student who passes his free time by watching anime, playing video games, and, of course, writing. It's not the healthiest lifestyle, I know, but it's enough for me. Besides, I tend to be very introverted, so I would say my hobbies reflect my personality perfectly. I am not, however, so introverted that I will avoid communication with others, especially other writers. Feel free to send me a private message or an email for whatever reason (except to antagonize me, of course), and I promise to respond. I really do enjoy talking with other readers and writers.

This site to me is a way for me to express myself and exercise my imagination and writing abilities. I have no professional experience whatsoever, but I have always dreamed of being a journalist or novelist when I grow older. At first, I wrote fanfiction to help train myself for when/if I began to publish my work in paper. Now, however, it has grown to be more of a hobby. I have found writing fanfiction to be more enjoyable than I first imagined, mainly because of the way it allows a writer to take an already established world and its inhabitants and either evolve them into something else, or further develop them as they are.

Finally, I would like to ask that if you do read a story of mine, then you submit even a short review. Even if it's just a line or two of support or criticism, receiving input from readers is one of the greatest joys I have discovered from writing fanfiction. My experience on FanFiction.net so far has been wonderful. My fellow readers and writers have all been very supportive and encouraging and for that I thank each and every one of you. Please continue to read what I write and I will do my best to maintain and improve the quality of my work. Thank You!!

Little Reminder

If you read it, review it. Every author here, regardless of skill, aim, story type, or grammar is looking for feedback from his or her works. If you like it, tell them why. If you don't like it, tell them why. And no author is looking for flamers to drop them a pointless 'u suck' review. If you believe in these tenets, copy and paste it into your profile. Spread the love. Spread the reviews. (Taken from Strata-Assassin's Profile) Thanks!
