Author has written 19 stories for Danny Phantom, Toy Story, Avatar: Last Airbender, and Gravity Falls.

I prefer the setup on Archive of Our Own more and consider it to be my main home for fan fiction. As a result, I post on AO3 first, and on FF.Net second. (The delay between varies, and there are some fics that I've chosen to post exclusively on AO3.)

A gentle reminder to all readers: fan works are born of inspiration and love for the source material, but it is the community that helps them thrive. A thoughtful comment is often times the only form of payment an author receives for all of the effort that goes into crafting their fanfic, and also the only incentive they have to keep producing new chapters for it. After all, why go through the hassle of drafting, writing, editing, proofreading, uploading, formatting, and finally posting, if no one else cares about the story they're pouring all their work into? It is much easier to simply let those characters and adventures live on in the imagination rather than to toil away bringing them into a more tangible, shareable media for others to enjoy. All of us are busy with our own lives, and sometimes we don't have an easy time finding the words to express ourselves, but it isn't necessarily the story that dies when no one takes the time to let an author know that their work is appreciated, merely our access to it. Just something to think about.

    Stan's Guide to Locker Room Politics
    Wherein a bet is made, a junior prom is attended and then ditched, the rumor mills of two different high schools are kicked into overdrive, Stan and Carla's relationship sees a few changes, and a certain infamous moniker comes into being. [Starla][D-297][Rating May Change][AO3 CrossPost]

    Something Like Home
    The reunion with his twin brother didn't quite go the way Stan was hoping it would. Honestly, he just doesn't know what to make of the stranger that came out of his twin's freaky basement-portal. Did they just become triplets? Can that happen? For once, it looks like his brainy brother is almost as lost as he is. [T&J][AO3 CrossPost]

    Of Balance, Legacies, and Spirits
    He'd wanted to change the world, to make a difference. Ford thought he'd found his chance to do just that - until his brother ruined it for him. And when he'd lost his temper and raged over the injustice of it, the fire had answered and shattered everything he'd thought he'd known.

    Carla finds out she's pregnant. Ford tries to be helpful. It goes about as well as you'd expect. [Third Genre is Family][Past Starla][D-297][One-Shot][AO3 CrossPost]

    Mister Mystery
    It may be taking a bit longer for Stan's memories to return to him than he is leading those around him to believe. Unfortunately for Stanley, it seems that poking his nose into his brother's business is something that Stanford happens to remember very well about being siblings. [D-297][AO3 CrossPost]

    Hippies on the Highway
    You don't always get the chance to fix your mistakes. Sometimes, you don't even realize you've made one until it's too late. [Mentioned Drug Use][Starla][D-297][AO3 CrossPost]

    Math is Money reviews
    Filbrick Pines is well aware that he is far from the perfect father. However, just because Filbrick isn't perfect, doesn't mean the man gives up so easily. He's too stubborn for that by far. Shame it's always something of a coin toss as to if the lessons he teaches his sons will help or harm them in the long run. [D-297][AO3 CrossPost]

    Two AM in Oregon
    Carla struggles in adjusting to motherhood and a new sleep schedule after Jason is born. Ford's nightmares have abated over the months, but he's not so sure he wouldn't prefer them to the dreams he's been having. Stan remains a sore subject for them both.

    Between of Dimensions
    There are some places in the multiverse that the human race was never meant to be. Fiddleford McGucket can attest to the fact that what lays beyond the portal is just such a place. [D-297, T&J][Nightmare Realm][Two-Shot][AO3 CrossPost]

    A Girl Named Carla reviews
    One, teenagers are awkward. Two, first impressions rarely go as planned. And three, Stan never remembers to tell anyone about the polydactyly, so Ford probably should have been expecting something like this to happen. [Starla][D-297][One-Shot][AO3 CrossPost]

    Two reviews
    It's a sweltering summer day in 1952. Spending it in a hospital waiting room with a bored nine-year-old was not ideal, but it was something he had expected. What came after the waiting was done? That was another matter. *A stubborn tough New Jersey native, Filbrick wasn't too creative. Having twins was not his plan, so he just shrugged and named both Stan.* [D-297][AO3 CrossPost]

    This is Not an Apology reviews
    Once, when they had been young, they hadn't needed words to understand each other. Those days are long gone. Stan finds himself struggling with that realization. [Missing Scene][Post "A Tale of Two Stans"][No Pairings][One-Shot][AO3 CrossPost]

    Better Left Unsaid reviews
    Vlad had dismissed it as 'better left unsaid.' Just because Danny will never know the truth, doesn't mean we won't.

But his regrets don't matter because the unlucky don't get second chances, now do they? ...He never did stop riding his bike in the rain.

    The wedding was today, and she was getting cold feet. But Ty-Lee had always met uncertainty with a smile. So she'd grin and bear for Mai's sake, even as she wished to switch roles with the bride. [Maiko, one-sided Ty-Luko, hint of possible TyAang][One-Shot][AO3 CrossPost]

    Clockwork has often tried to put Phantom's rampaging to rest. He has never succeeded. This time, however, ends in disaster; and not even the Master of Time will be able to undo the resulting damage. [Pre-TUE][Dark][No Pairings][Two-Shot, with Epilogue][AO3 CrossPost]
