Author has written 5 stories for Gunslinger Girl.

Dec 25 UPDATE: It may be a little late (okay, very late), but Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone! In case you don't know, La Stessa Cosa (Lit. "The Same Thing")* is a one-shot--featuring Caterina and Celestina Alvise--which I've been thinking of writing for a while. It fills in some of the gaps between Cosca and Cosa Nostra and continues the tradition of twisting the canon using the lovably unstable Twins.

Also, I know many of you are wondering, but there's no need to worry. The third installment of The Far-Flung Trilogy is still in the works, though it may need a re-title among other things. I'll get that out as well when it's ready. Of course, I can't offer even a tentative release date :P In the meantime, see below for a new preview!

[Asterisk]Fun little fact: the titles of the stories featuring the Twins all come from Italian mob terminology. The girls are former mafia princesses, after all.


Preview

Triela stopped with a raised fist and paused as if listening intently. Then she dropped to a prone position in the snow. Henrietta immediately followed suit as four guards appeared in the doorway of a nearby structure. They began to patrol towards the two cyborgs, who tensed and prepared to fire. The guards approached, six meters away, then five. Four. Three…They stopped. With a casual farewell, the group of four split into pairs and separated in opposite directions, neither of which would take them close enough to the girls to spot them.

Triela sighed and waited a moment longer before rising again. She sped up a little to distance herself from the light surrounding the structure. When she reached a storage container, she rounded the corner. She collided face-first into the chest of a patrolling guard. Stumbling back, she tripped over herself and landed on her rear. She raised her pistol to fire, knowing she would miss.

“Wh—!” the guard began to cry out when a single pistol round passed through his nasal cavity, killing him instantly. Henrietta appeared immediately at Triela’s side and helped her to her feet.

“Nice shot,” said Triela, “I owe you one.”

Henrietta said, “No problem.” The pair moved again.

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!
